Thanks that clears it up, had read the opposite somewhere but think it was by a mod on a per-site meta rather than anyone on the SE team

@Pham gone
Drupal spam still alive.
I'm so ready to take the BC test. The only thing stopping me from getting perfect score now is the snot that's dripping from my nose.
1h to go
11:02 AM
@Unihedron, yeah that was one, plus saw another somewhere else along similar lines
Just noticed in a comment under your answer though he doesn't seem convinced ;-)
I don't write to entertain. :P
Unlike Bart.
Q: Shouldn't the SE quality check block posts that are only a link?

MoosemanI'm part of the MSE TAVERN ANTI-SPAM CLUB and this question *now deleted was just a link: Just a link. The entire body of the post was within the outbound link. Can/should the SE quality check block these?

Q: Unable to reorder "your communities" with touch

MoosemanI have a Windows tablet. I am accessing SE via IE 11 (metro) and using the touch screen. To reproduce: Go to the SE menu in the SE bar. Select edit next to Your Communities. Attempt to use the drag handles with your finger. Failure. Additionally, if you close the SE menu while in the edit...

^^ Two important bug reports...
What's a Windows Tablet?
What is important in ordering the site list using a specific device?
11:24 AM
@Mooseman Which planet did you find that on?
@PatrickHofman Not a single device but rather an entire platform. If somebody with an iPad or Android tablet can confirm the same bug, that would be useful.
@Mooseman Whoa, is that thing real?
@Sam Erm.
@Unihedron Yes. Yes it is. And I know you want one.
11:26 AM
Can't you change that with a 3D printed smartphone and use that instead?
I know it's frowned upon to vote based on the current score, but is it OK to downvote for "is a hot network question but shouldn't be"?
If you feel it isn't a good question, then downvote it. Whether it's a hot network question shouldn't affect your decision; if it's at all a factor, then downvote it in the name of it being a bad question anyway.

@yushi hiya!

@JanDvorak There are a horde of regex noobs, they roam around the [regex] tag at specific hours of the day to upvote everything they see. You must have hit one.

11:48 AM
@JanDvorak It did look suspicious. Downvote switched to spam flag.
thanks mum
Needless to say it's not just lq.
Didn't Chemistry graduate? Or is that planned for soon?

@Unihedron whts wrong in that?

@Unihedron there is no Doc on the website to use it :|
> I have the zip code and want to get the temperature of that location(zip code). I got the token and but how to put that token and zip code to URL.
^ this problem statement is pretty downvote-worthy.
@yushi That's not really in context - you asked why you get downvotes, I gave my stance :p
1:31 PM
@Mooseman u liek trainz?
@Mooseman Close enough
We should have an annual "Speak In Memes Day".
1:33 PM
@Sam :D
@Sam Speak in memes day - Y U NOT A THING?
@Mooseman Unihedron doesn't really support trains.
@Unihedron pls check this there is no option to put token
@Unihedron You... what have you done?
1:34 PM
@ASCIIThenANSI You need to be about 20% cooler than that.
@SPArchaeologist That'll probably happen in 6-8 weeks.
@Mooseman I like trains.
gets crushed by train
1:37 PM
@Mooseman It’s National Tranny Day again?
@Unihedron Get that off my lawn!
@yushi, after a quick look it appears you need "token: whatever" in the HTTP header, it's not part of the URL.

What if Mooseman has two bots

And they all just auto-star his memes for him?
And you could be one of them
1:47 PM
Then I should get three bots to auto-star my messages!
@ASCIIThenANSI I only have one sock. And hey, that's a good idea! jk
I know how to make him stop
@Mooseman Watch out, we're dealing with a master over here
1:49 PM
@Mooseman I've got access to 3 (mwahaha). xD
plot twist: we're all Shog's bots
OMG plz
@yushi, never done it for Android but now you know you need something in the HTTP header it shouldn't be hard to work out with a little Googling / research ;-)
this has to stop
The meme war begins...
1:51 PM
When you're done posting endless streams of images and those streams are off the chat DOM please remind me to refresh my browser
I used to be a meme warrior
Until I took an arrow to the knee
@JanDvorak OK. See you when Half-Life 3 comes out.
@PeterJ thanks
@Mooseman We totally need a chatroom for this.
1:54 PM
It's called the sandbox.
@Sam Sandbox is for people who aren't cool enough to make their own for just this purpose.
I've been waiting for this day for months...

Meme Zone

One does not simply post a message unless it's a meme.
omg wow
@Inf please help move Moose's memes and pictures into their room :D
1:56 PM
the "omg wow" was because I've never seen a room and thought to self "I wouldn't want to be an RO of that room" before
@Unihedron Yeah, like 5 minutes later

Spam everywhere
@Mooseman you know.... I could post some pony memes :P
2:05 PM
Bot answered for me :)
Just don't ping me with 'ponies donuts'. ok?
@Mooseman won't. All my pings will be nice pony pictures... ones that the boot can't reply to.
@Moo I like ponies, doughnuts, waffles and brown.
Bots everywhere
@Mooseman :P
2:10 PM
@SPArchaeologist Actually, you probably want to ping me with 'ponies donuts'.

Due to the Russian sites now being part of the network, Russian spam is to be expected?
@rene It is not
@Unihedron Indeed. It's pretty common in the business world
Just find one enterprise allowed app that doesn't run well on IE...shouldn't be that hard to find one...
I haven't found one that breaks completely. I've found ones that look bad, but still function. I have found plenty that don't work in Firefox though (unless you change the user agent)
"inappropriate" is now "rude or abusive".

If a migrated question is mod-deleted (without closing), is the migration rejected?
@bummi Agree with Jan: this isn't spam. The question asked for SMS-sending services. I flagged the question as OT/rec.
@2mkgz Since 100% percent (4/4) of his answers are pointing there I'd see this as pure promotion tour
@bummi I didn't check other messages. You're completely right, a spammer.
@2mkgz I didn't say it wasn't spam.
2:49 PM
Obviously I didn't have my coffee yet today.
@Andy Is <MYCOMPANY> essentially all programmers? Or are people with accurate knowledge of browsers the minority?
@Mooseman No. It is not programmers. Large manufacturing company. There are a decent number of programmers (I'd say roughly 10% of the work force world wide).
@Mooseman I'd trust the engineering community to have pretty good knowledge of the browsers too. That's well over 50% of the workforce

@Pham does... it actually attempt to answer the question?
@Mooseman Probably a good question. I don't know. My usage of IE consists of iexplore getfirefox.com then downloading Firefox and removing all IE shortcuts I see
@Andy do you have a SharePoint portal in the company? That should be guaranteed to not work with IE
@SPArchaeologist Not that I use. There may be one around here somewhere. That's good thing to know. I'll go hunt around some other divisions
@JanDvorak It's still very LQ.

@SPArchaeologist You never called pony donuts. Now you also have to call ponies jumping.

@Andy then it may be worth checking.
and if anything else fails.... you will have to use a VM:P

@SPArchaeologist DO IT ALREADY
Q: Now there are two sites: rus.SE and russian.SE. Shall the scope of this site be changed?

Vi.The sites are not going to be merged. That answer proposes this site (russian.stackexchange.com) for foreigners learning Russian while the migrated site be for native speakers discussing aspects of the language, like with EL&U and ULL. Shall this site be renamed to RLL - Russian Language Learning?

oh, thanks!

@Mooseman virtual machine for firefox? nope, can install that on the main machine. There are some good benefits in begin a web dev. One is that you get to have all browsers installed.
@SPArchaeologist hardy har har. Just call pony donuts already.

@Unihedron ok. Almost every.
But I have FirePony.

Why is their bold font so huge?
@2mkgz I don't think so?
It's the padding with their font.
