> On my previous job, our software went into maintenance mode, which meant no new features. We certainly aren't ready to do that with Stack Exchange, but I do think that would be a rational decision.
Response to your response: 1. Should be tagged status-deferred. 2. Should be tagged status-review, because we know it is from my other question about this. 3. status-review or status-deferred both an improvement over now. 4. Fine, status-declined it. 5. Thank you for status-declined. I mean, why not put those responses in those questions? Why put them HERE where they won't be seen? — durron597 6 mins ago

@durron597 Seriously, I had better things to do with my afternoon.
 
Meh, meta isn't ideal for bug tracking
 
[ SmokeDetector ] Bad keyword in title: What buddhism says about bodybuilding (and weights training)? by Nikola on buddhism.stackexchange.com
 
I sometimes catch a CM to bounce some ideas that I have and their possible implementation, through sometimes there are those little quirks with usability that I believe should be ironed out, I normally don't expect any response at all

12:55 AM
@durron597 I'm clearly not understanding your question. It seems the problem is that minor features and bugs are addressed late? There are 79 questions a day on all metas. Often the discussions and support are more pressing than feature requests and bugs. It's a bit overwhelming sometimes.

Sorry, we are no longer accepting questions from this account. See the Help Center to learn more.

Question bans, fun. Or is that the monthly limit?
 
To clarify: Those tags and the one to two sentences you wrote here are all that we're asking for.durron597 49 mins ago

user202362
there is a monthly limit?
 
12:59 AM
@chmod711telkitty You can lift the ban by answering questions and gaining rep. It's about the ratio.
 
user202362
I know
 
@chmod711telkitty I know one guy who it was permanent, lasted over a year
But just two upvotes on answers removed it.
 
@chmod711telkitty I think it's like 50 questions (I know, outrageously high and why did I consider it)
 
user259867
The statement quoted by chmod is for the ban based on quality, not for rate-limiting.
 
user259867
The limit of 50 q in any 30 days period is enabled on selected sites; not on all.
 
user202362
1:02 AM
The quality of my questions is very high, just not by this site's standard :'(
 
1:12 AM
@JonEricson Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that what we're dealing with here is just a simple "perfect being the enemy of the good" situation
For example, take question 3 on your list:
289
Q: Reject an already-approved suggested edit when rolling it back

BoltClock's a UnicornI just had to roll back about a dozen incorrect suggested edits that were approved, because all they did was litter backticks all over random words and phrases and calling it improved formatting. This is just one of the less exciting cleanup tasks I've taken it upon myself to do, as these edits ...

We don't need a perfect response, which could take days or weeks of study to do the right thing
We just need any response.
@JonEricson Your two sentences and a tag is all that we really ask for, and obviously the more detailed review when we get to it in the priority list.

Oh, that spam text .... we have to blacklist the bible ... :(
 
@rene That might cause some trouble on Christianity.SE .
I saw a similar thing on Twitter. The spammers interspersed their spam tweets with sentences scraped from Wikipedia.
 
They found that the bayesian texts no longer works, I guess...
 
Probably. A new step in the arms race between spammers and spam catchers.
OTOH Smoke Detector got this one.

@rene Well.. here's one who sort-of stopped advertising links. Spammer on Security.SE who didn't add "http://" before the link.
So it wasn't clickable. It ended up in their Sec.SE's First Posts queue so it won't last long.
 
Yeah, you sometimes have stuff that are either attempts to circumvent the spam filters or are simply spam fails...
 
I can give you a link to the post, if you want it to train the Smoke Detector. It's not deleted yet.

Hey peeps. dunno if this is reported or not but this site: sellmyapplication.com/ask/question/… is copying content from stackexhange without any disclaimer or credits to stackexchange. The link I gave is scraped from startups.stackexchange.com/questions/260/….

@AwalGarg There's a default Meta.SE post. Give me a moment.

Q: A site (or scraper) is copying content from Stack Exchange. What do I do?

PopsSince day one of Stack Overflow, all content posted on Stack Exchange sites by their users (i.e. you wonderful people) has been provided to the whole universe under the CC-BY-SA license. For my fellow non-lawyers, that license basically means: Anyone can use any Stack Exchange posts at any time...

Used to be we added them to the answers there... need to re-read the post, seems it was edited recently (Aug 3).
 
alright. there is also solvedstack.com/questions/how-does-the-this-keyword-work which only links back to Stack Overflow in the form of links to user profiles which aren't obvious at all.
 
No attribution means they're violating the CC-SA license. Use the "Contact us" link on SO or Meta.SE.
That's what it says in the Meta post I linked above.
 
11:58 AM
@S.L.Barth You have to reply to execute why.
"why" is not a privileged command @rene
But if @S.L.Barth wants, I can certainly add him to the privileged user list :)
 
I'd be honoured.
 
Me too. What user list btw?
 
@AwalGarg The user list to execute privileged commands on Smokey.
 
oh smokey is that bot who says a lot of stuff

No, it just refreshed

Interesting proposal, but the scope seems very narrow.
 
Do I really have 2k rep total?
NOOO
Its only 1.3k
 
@S.L.Barth Narrow? There are many types of calculators, aren't there?
 
Scratches head

Anyway I'm afraid it won't survive -- it has only 3 months left to get into commitment, otherwise it will be closed.
 
Hmmm
Put it on twitter

It's not like that's going to help a lot, as I don't have a lot of followers :P
 
Hack someone's Twitter and put it on there.
 
I don't think there is a large userbase for that proposal.
 
I know!
 
Put it on reddit. Worked for the Ethereum guys....

I'm not even on Reddit. Will my post even get views?
 
Don't know, I'm not on Reddit either.
Ethereum apparently had a lot of following there. So when they started the proposal on Area 51 they posted it there.
You'd have to find some social media page about calculators.
 
Yeah, and be sure to read their promotion policy, if they have one.
(if there is even a social media page about calculators)
 
People make social media pages about the weirdest things.
 
I found r/calculators on Reddit.
 
I'll leave it there forever

So, if we do the maths, I have 1112 rep on Arqade. Ummmm that's wrong. Could the rep list on Area 51 be changed to not include...

Hmm, I wonder what was wrong with this.
Seems legit.
 
Maybe I shouldn't ask questions and report bugs on A52
Wait... Area51
NOT 52!!!1!!1!
 
Umm wat
 $('#' + document.getElementsByName('post-text')[0].id);
How over complex is that
 
That's pointless, too. IDs are unique so document.getElementsByName('post-text')[0] should work perfectly fine.
 
Well I want the jQuery stuff
Dunno why but sometimes its .attr() and sometimes its .getAttribute()
Its weird
 
1:51 PM
.attr() is jQuery, .getAttribute() is pure JS.
 
Sometimes its .append() and sometimes its .appendChild()
 
The former has to be invoked on a jQuery object, the latter on a JS DOM Object.
 
Hmmm..
Reduces code
 $(document.getElementsByName('post-text'));
Boom
 
So, document.getElementsByName('post-text')[0].getAttribute works when you want to get the attribute of that one element.
 
jQuery is faster
 
1:53 PM
Ehh... how do you know that? I guess it'd be slow to copy all the stuff inside the jQuery object.
 
Because I type less code
 
Oh, faster as in typing.
