Time to listen to a Japanese metal version of Tonari No Totoro.
Hmm. About a week ago I flagged this guy for suspicious voting behaviour - his questions nearly always end up with two very quick upvotes. Sturgeon's law could explain the behaviour but it's rather consistent. Anyone else have an opinion? Not that it matters really, unless you're a mod, I guess.
 
@J.Steen Looks odd. Checking activity is easy for a mod. I'll mention it...
 
Oh. And those same, last five or six questions have all been favourited. I don't get it. The questions aren't that good. They're rather crap, in fact.
Oh. And the double upvotes always come at nearly exact same time, according to his rep-history. But I don't know if it obfuscates.
I "oh" a lot today.
 
@J.Steen Users can favorite their own questions.
 
Uhm.
 
@J.Steen I sometime favor questions I find suspicious, perhaps someone else does the same?
 
1:14 PM
Holy crap, I can favourite my own question.
For what possible reason?
 
Now upvote it
 
Uh. Why?
 
I believe it will indicate activity on portions of the question where you aren't normally notified (ie. a comment to an answer). Then in your profile tab you can still see that "something" has occurred
 
Hmm.
 
1:16 PM
Oh, favourites aren't secret. Cool.
Interesting patterns emerge...
 
user259867
Sanja Jokic and Andrej Panic favorited the same posts.
 
user259867
But they are at 1 rep, so couldn't do anything else.
 
Yes. And are both 1-rep users.
Created the same day.
The third user has 1 upvote on each of his questions. Could also be coincidence, of course.
ANd has upvoted once today. Not that that matters. I just love stats.
Same two users favoriting all his questions...
Three, actually.
So. Yeah. I definitely smell a voting ring.
Hah. All questions asked since those two 1-rep accounts were created have 2 upvotes.
How much rep does it take to be able to upvote?
It's been six years, I forget my own noob-dom.
Ah, 15.

@J.Steen Yeah, so that weakens the theory. It may be that their posts were deleted, taking rep with them. But that would mean the action was already taken.

@tchrist :[
 
Your confusion tenses me.
Wait.
 
Did you mean lie in the present tense instead of lay in the past tense?
 
1:43 PM
No.
 
No.
 
Then why is can’t in the present tense? If lay is past tense, I’d’ve expected couldn’t.
The can’t garden-paths one to read lay as a present tense verb, which would be really bad.
 
Hum. Yeah. That jars a bit.

[ SmokeDetector ] All-caps title: JPQL TREAT AS /LEFT OUTER JOIN by Darth_Blade on stackoverflow.com
 
I'm trying to convince someone that developing an app for X is overkill. I'd like to use cost as an argument as well. Roughly, how much would it cost to get someone to code a simple app for iOS, android and win phones? Say something that provides the program of a conference nicely separated into browsable sections.
I mean, are we talking hundreds or thousands of $?
 
@terdon Automation?
 
@Unihedro ?
 
Show them the xkcd comic!
 
@Unihedro Ah, that one :)
 
1:56 PM
Apps without function are useless. It costs less to make a website with responsive layout for something like a conference program.
Then you can use any device.
Except your car. Unless it has a browser.
 
@J.Steen Google Hangouts crashes on mobile.
 
No automation involved. It's a one-off thing. They ware organizing a conference and want to provide the program as an app. I'm trying to convince them that a mobile-optimized website is both better, cheaper and simpler.
@J.Steen My point exactly.
 
@Unihedro Google Hangouts has function. It should be an app.
 
Hmm.
 
Let me amend that: It has rich features that require more than what the web is traditionally supportive of.

Holy crap, Wikimedia (owners of wikipedia) are suing the NSA. Now this is a thing I'd be happy to donate towards. https://blog.wikimedia.org/2015/03/10/wikimedia-v-nsa/

But how much would it cost, more or less, to get someone to write a simple app like that. I am assuming we're in the range of 1 or 2k bucks.
 
Like geocities.
 
user259867
@terdon There are rough app cost estimators online, based on features.
 
@terdon I'll do it for $2k :p
 
I'll do it for 20k. Do I win?
 
1:59 PM
@Mooseman Hell, I'd do it for 2k myself :)
 
I'll do it for twenty bucks.

What the hell is this, IBM?
 
A small web app with no features costs $2,136?!
 
And that's if you ask Kinvey to do it!
204 days, 7 people, 100k if you DIY it. WHAT.
They're taking the piss.
So yeah! Website. =)
 
Yeah, that's ridiculous. I'm sure you can get an individual developer to do it for far less. I just don't see it falling below 1 or 2k.
 
2:06 PM
I developed an app which is estimated to cost 100k in less than 6 months, alone!?
I need to ask for a raise.
 
You do!
 
... Huh, does app development really go that high? I usually ask for paychecks in the hundreds.
 
I'd charge a base-price of (with current exchange rate) 120 bucks an hour.
I don't know what prices in other countries are. =D
 
Does.
Foreign currency exchange is most easily handled by first converting bucks into does.
 
@Unihedro And you work on mobile apps? What would you charge for an app that essentially provides a searchable PDF? We're talking static text/images arranged in sections. Say ~10 pages or so with some clickable links and a search function. It should work on ios, Android, Windows Phone and probably Blackberry.
 
Note that I'm not offering a job (not in my power), just looking for a rough estimate.
@tchrist I'm trying to convert bucks into do nots though.
 
By now you should be aware already that my estimates are severely lower than even mediocre estimates. xD
 
@Unihedro But are still probably higher than what these guys expect. If you're a professional dev, I'd like to know what those estimates are. Roughly.

Google, your new hand-holder.
(While Microsoft is trying to be the Hip Beard Dad)
And Apple is your a-hole brother who tells you your taste sucks.
And let's not mention *nix. It's like the smelly aunt in the corner that noone wants to wake up because she might pinch your cheeks and offer linty mint candies.
 
@J.Steen And they ban anything that's even so slightly customized in the themes.
@J.Steen Hey, at least they're easier to get along than Windows.
 
2:21 PM
@Unihedro I dunno, Hip Beard Dad drinks IPAs. Aunty just drinks sherry and has a neck beard.
Stereotypes are fun.
@Unihedro Also, Hip Beard Dad gives you a ride on his (admittedly not all that cool) motorbike, while aunty expects you to build a kit helicopter by yourself.
Using wood glue.
 
Wait, that's just a stereotype, right? xD
 
...yes.
 
And I thought everyone hated *nix only because OS X is Linux and Macs are freaking expensive?
 
Macs were more expensive when it wasn't *nix.
 
OS X > Windows > Classic Mac

Q: Awesome new beta site design breaks user cards in flag queue

UndoI love the flat new design for beta sites. One thing I noticed: Usercards look different in the mod queue vs. the rest of the site: ... vs. the mod queue version: I like having it more condensed, but it feels awkward having so little padding at the bottom.

 
interesting...

UndoWith the new beta design, the helpful flag reason textbox on flags doesn't have enough padding to the right: Compare with the decline box: Could we make the helpful box less cramped?

 
@ʎǝʞuoɯɹǝqʎɔ Yep, prolly the same issue
 
This looks, feels, smells, and sounds like a "which lib can I use" request. Amazingly, the OP didn't actually use the words, but it clearly is talking about libraries that support certain functionality.

Martin BüttnerWith the new beta design, while the spacing between the pagination and a normal answer's title looks really nice, it looks very crammed if the answer at the top is deleted: I don't know if this affects other sites, but the designs (beta or not) seem to be fairly consistent, so I think this mig...

so, no
 
I would say that the pagination is definitely a user interface element
 
3:23 PM
agree
 
well, SE team doesn't think that
 
I'm rather wondering whether "design" is really applicable here, or whether that is used more in an aesthetic/artistic sense

buttons are also <input> in the context of HTML. I don't see much difference between a link and a button here.

@JanDvorak Registered question as false positive and added title to Bayesian doctype 'good'.
 
@Braiam so?
 
@Undo UI is for problems about how you interact with the site (I click button, stuff happens) and design is for how I see stuff without the need to interact with it (box is too big, hides stuff, or color is annoying, etc.)
in this case (red background of deleted answer colides with another element) doesn't strike to me as an usability (interactive if you must) problem
a CSS fix would be enough

You can vote on a question before it's migrated, and your vote will carry over and give the OP rep on the new site, then visit the page in the new site and vote again. So you can vote twice on migrated questions. I don't like that.
