Jaydles either got promoted from "VP of Community" to "VP of Stack Overflow", or his job simply got renamed... stackoverflow.com/company/team#Executive
The latter may well be the case, if the non-SO sites are now considered "legacy".
I'd hope not
or its reflecting the company 'branding'

9:07 AM
@rene maybe sub user, not super user.... :P
have Smokey serve coffee automatically every day in 7:00 AM (UTC) with text like brews coffee for the Tavern. ;) /cc @Pro what you think?
@JourneymanGeek huh?
Why the long face?
SU mod? ;p
I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to do this...

public override int GetHashCode()
// Not used
return 0;
@JourneymanGeek lol no, @rene meant the question was more fitting for Super User... (I think...)
9:10 AM
yeah. but er, Depending on how terrible it is, ;p
@Stijn OMG... this can break so many things....
Yeah, I got what he meant ;p
@ShadowWizard I'm just going to pretend I didn't see it, do the bugfix in this code and move on :p
@JourneymanGeek see for yourself:
Yeah, pretty terrible
9:13 AM
@Stijn you... wrote... it? :P
dissipating IP ranges?
I think he saw it.
@ShadowWizard nah, doing maintenance on a codebase I didn't write
@JourneymanGeek lol dunno, didn't read that far :D
@Stijn yeah yeah, I believe you. Same way I believe you're not actually an 18 y/o teenager. ;)
But really... who would do such a thing and.... why?!
Just curious, what bug it caused? @Stijn
@ShadowWizard the bug is in another piece of the class, I just saw that while scrolling through the code
maybe I should submit it to thedailywtf
@Stijn totally!
Well, first thing that will break is probably comparison, then sorting.
9:16 AM
@ShadowWizard Reading really fast, but not that accurately is a nice and terrible thing about dyslexia ;)
@JourneymanGeek oh, lol... good for you... (I guess ;))
@ShadowWizard yeah, we have this stupid rule in socvr that requires *-pls request to come with a valid reason. I kind of bring that habit here to indicate why needs to be deleted, by no means I'm suggesting to migrate that crap. cc @JourneymanGeek
Most of the time.
(seeing the good things in anything, I mean :))
Trust me, I know what I'm doing ...
9:17 AM
Oh, its handy, and could be worse.
@rene lol, of course, I know :)
It is kind of worrying when I'm pinged that many times. Scares the shit out of me ...
I'm still getting used to the noification sound here ;p
Beats the BONGS in the 'main' chat ;p
@JourneymanGeek this sound? ;)
9:22 AM
Well, it was worse....
Q: Chat notification sounds have become like icicles repeatedly driven through my ears

BoltClock's a Unicorn(Yes, I said "through my ears", not just "into my ears".) It looks like HTML5 <audio> elements are now used to produce notification sounds in chat. And good heavens have they become startlingly loud. Please lower the volume of these notifications β€” or do whatever it is that needs to be done to ...

Oh, the main server sound's annoying
but I got used to it
@JourneymanGeek Good!
10:04 AM

10:50 AM
@AaronHall Is there something broken with your user account? Looks like your MSE account is not linked to the rest of your network accounts.
11:03 AM
@qwer brews a cup of jasmine tea for @qwer
@Derpy 418 I'm a teapot
@rene brews coffee for @rene
@Stijn here you go ^ coffee for you given This answer was nonsense, I need more coffee...
11:12 AM
@rene thank you :)
still waiting
11:50 AM
wondering... how fast would the staff get mad if someone used the "♦" character in his username?
@Derpy I think it's auto blocked, at least if in the end
yep, hope so.
@Derpy somewhere between not at all and entirely
@Stijn he hides his MSE account. All others appear in his network profile.
@ShadowWizard you can do that?
11:53 AM
@Stijn Is "Entirely Fast" a new synonym for "light-speed"?
@Derpy it is now
> Oops! There was a problem updating your profile:
> Display Name can only contain letters, digits, spaces, apostrophes or hyphens and must start with a letter or digit
I guess they don't block the diamond specifically
12:01 PM
@Stijn yeah, they allow only specific sets of characters
@Stijn how is it not linked? because I'm signed in at work?
they allow for hiragana and Arabic characters... maybe we could find some lookalike there?
too small.
@AaronHall if you didn't hide it, maybe by mistake, it means you created whole new account for MSE
(instead of linking your existing account)
another case of rage deletion... (see last comment)
can you copy it here for us plebs?
12:14 PM
too offensive... let's just say it contains both the "f" word and the "s" word.... :-O
ok :p
would there be some kind of signal that's the case?
I doubt that user will post another question on MSE... but nothing we can do.
12:15 PM
@ShadowWizard yeah, I'm sorry
/me am getting older now
/me am old
@rene huh? Why?
It's just how MSE works :)
@bjb568 Happy Birthday?
a decade and a half, coming up in 3.5h.
12:16 PM
@bjb568 whoa... so old!
(darn lag)
Will you have a cake? @bjb568
With candles?
12:17 PM
@ShadowWizard I am one of the anonymous down voters
eh, dunno about candles
@rene oh. Well, I was about to downvote too at first, but found the idea interesting.
@bjb568 if you can live to old enough, you will become an antique
@qwer (+1)
12:17 PM
@bjb568 oh. Who will bake/bring the cake?
@Telkitty That's skary.
@ShadowWizard One of my classmates.
Why you all are so laggy? :D
I am not
@bjb568 cool! So any one who has birthday is getting a cake? That's nice in highschool college, for me it stopped way before that. ;)
12:19 PM
Nah, I just have nice friends.
@bjb568 oh. So you're a special case. Enjoy it! :D
The skewl rules actually prohibit all birthday celebrations because they're "disruptive".
@AaronHall sure, go to "my logins" in edit profile on MSE, see what's going on
(I mean your logins, not mine ;))
slewl? hmm...
"ch" became "l"... "oo" became "ew"....
analyzing @bjb568-ish
whoops :3
12:22 PM
@ShadowWizard I lost your password, can you share it again?
@rene shadow123
Ah, yeah, knew it
of course
12:45 PM
5 messages moved from Shadow's Den
@ShadowWizard argh, shadow has been stealing messages, arrrgh :p
@rene now when we disagree I don't have to look for ice cream very far
@Moosebot ice cream
12:51 PM
So convenient.
I forgot how funny it was to read the Zelda gamefaqs board a month before a new game releases..
people assuming that since the final boss is always accessible, even if you don't have powerful equipment you could still technically beat it (see: Demon Soul's Vanguard tutorial boss)
@Derpy why? All the same "When the game is released?" messages?
@ShadowWizard see the above :P
@Derpy you mean they all boast how they'll do it?
I always try to reach the final stage over-leveled... hate tough fights.
I am betting you now:P You go to the boss at the start of the game? Ok, you play the first battle phase, then a CUTSCENE kicks in, the boss tells you that only the Master Sword would have any effect on him.... and kills you in the same cut-scene
If you are lucky enough, you will also get a "Bad ending" out of it for your effort :P
12:58 PM
@Derpy lol, well most games won't allow it, e.g. FF
Actually all games I've played... can't just reach the final boss just like that.
Even if you technically could, any gamedev would just include a simple "u ded" trigger
@Bart lol... I tripped such a trigger not long ago
Q: What is killing me?

Shadow WizardI was travelling a corner of Novigrad seeking a new location on the map, where I reached a weird tree, and any time I got close to it I simply dropped dead. From full health of 6000+ vitality to 0 instantly. No fall. No monsters. No fight. Just walking. Here is a video: https://www.facebook.com...

@Bart ^
Turns out I simply reached a place I wasn't supposed to reach
That's pretty bad game design ._.
oh, the great invisible wall... now come with death!
1:05 PM
@JourneymanGeek on the contrary, I admire them for that. Efficient to prevent weird bugs.
That's just part of open-world game
@ShadowWizard invisible death walls are weird bugs
@JourneymanGeek the alternative is not letting the player go off the trail, like for example in all Final Fantasy games (now playing XV) and many other games. I don't like that, prefer the freedom of doing what I want, even if it means falling from cliffs, drowning in oceans etc. ;)
@ShadowWizard or actual triggers
@JourneymanGeek well, when I reached the end of the map, the game did give a clear message.
and/or having accessibility to new areas organic in the game
that would be ok
1:08 PM
that tree was really hard to get, had to climb really carefully.
Spent 20 minutes real time to do that.
then such a lame death. lol
I could easily see it be a play test afterthought. "They do what? ... sigh ... "
heh, yeah :D
@Bart that is the point, only that plot wise probably they will allow you to try for a while before auto-killing you. Game start == you don't have the master sword, which is supposedly the only effective weapon against Ganondorf / Demise / whatever ^_^
@Derpy oh yeah, knock yourself out by all means. Nobody is going to stop a player from engaging and having their own fun.
But you gonna die anyway
considering they did confirm the new Zelda has multiple ending based on "completion percentage", one can safely assume that "no master sword == you die again ending"
1:21 PM
I've always wondered, if you were to play Link's Awakening with an emulator up to the end where you know the path to take in the maze, and then reload a saved game where you don't "know" the path yet, would taking that path still work?
@Stijn I seem to recall some article claiming that it doesn't work.
I also hate twinked boss battles where the only way to win is to hit specific things or fire insane amounts of ammo while the boss can one hit kill you ._.
@JourneymanGeek great minds... play alike! ;)
1:37 PM
@Telkitty that looks really weird
@Stijn yup, like a dog squeezed into toilet paper roll
that husky was cute though
He ded
1:46 PM
@Bart is it like being alve?
Same same but different
did he at least have a decent funerl?
So much love on MSO...
Even @Oded is being attacked. :/
@JourneymanGeek just go see MSO, it's right there
2:00 PM
I don't go there much >_>
tje one about the core QA engine?
me too, but now with the new top bar and everything...
@JourneymanGeek nope
There's no real communication about that sorta thing with the other sites as far as I see.
TL;DR - people aren't happy with the color and stickiness of the new top bar
@JourneymanGeek it's SO only for a while, yeah
I can vaguely grok the hate
I only like stickiness if its on very small or very large screens ._.
@JourneymanGeek well, I also don't like it being sticky, even got a nice conversation with @Shog about it couple of days ago... but I won't go and say "it's ugly" in the dev's face, or be insulted if they tell me they think it's nice.
Oh, the design is certainly more modern
I like the design. I don't hate the stickiness. But still don't really like it.
2:05 PM
@ShadowWizard change bad, rarrrrgghhh!!!
@Bart that is a thing
ironically, lack of help centre is going to be a pain for my style of moderation
@JourneymanGeek still available in footer
I don't need it, unless I need to link someone to it
also critically.
2:07 PM
I use it a lot too, when answering Meta questions. I guess I'll have to retrain muscle memory to press the End key to navigate to the help page.
as basically the second chattiest dog person on chat.se ....
and cerbrus has three heads
ah. I miss when it was in the top bar ._.
but change bad raaaar and all that
@JourneymanGeek it was there AGES ago.... lol
2:09 PM
@ShadowWizard I've been on SE... 7ish years?
mostly on SU though
@ShadowWizard we get to attack @Oded on MSO? That sounds like fun. Where do I go?
@Bart this way
@JourneymanGeek but the chat was moved something like three years ago when top bar has been re-designed for the first time...
oh, so you still miss it... lol
I miss the envelope.
dosen't really affect me (I bookmark them in my usual bunch of stuff) but I do feel it makes discoverability harder
which is good and bad
2:11 PM
@Oded awww, who's a good boy?
oh don't cry @Oded, you make me cry too
2:26 PM
Never too many dog pics
OK, I give up
that's my actual dog ;p
> When you sit down to triage bug reports, you don't go looking for the one that has the most votes - you look for the one that has the biggest impact... And ideally, has enough information for you to understand and reproduce the problem.
So voting is all just a parade? I thought it made at least some impact.
@Stijn bug reports though
2:36 PM
Not if pluralization bugs which we always love though
@JourneymanGeek the one I posted is my dog as well, sleeping on my blue feet
@bluefeet those are indeed blue.
also, adorable pup
Stahpit people. Now I want a dog ... but that's impossible unfortunately.
@Bart We got a dog by accident
How do you manage that?
2:40 PM
@Bart why? Allergic?
Oh, his ex-owner bought him without telling her husband
@ShadowWizard nah, small apartment and it's just me. So I'm gone for most of the day
massive fight. She was staying in a spare room while they sorted it out
she left, he didn't
@Bart dog-sitter
Win win @JourneymanGeek? :D
2:41 PM
@Bart quite
@ShadowWizard not really feasible.
@Bart if you really want it would be ;)
Haha, don't tempt me. But nah, conditions need to change drastically before I get a dog.
Its a massive time commitment
Depends on the dog of course
@JourneymanGeek yes, it's a cav
2:42 PM
ah, they have very distinctive muzzles
she's a cutie but also a troublemaker
They tend to be
Mine bit me the first time he saw me ;p
Is /review/triage on any other SO site enabled?
@rene page not found
Oh, I guess I misread the first revision of "other site"
@JourneymanGeek nice. She definitely likes to play bite. Our other dogs don't really like her right now because of it. I'm hoping she'll grow out of that a bit.
@bluefeet most dogs are likely to get annoyed by puppies ;p
too much energy
She definitely has that.
I mean, there's a few dogs that seem to be born chill
2:50 PM
In addition of that, the triage's review stats works anywhere, but the queue itself certainly doesn't work.
@rene it exists, just disabled, as the stats page proves
hmm.... what about dead links review...
@JourneymanGeek very true. Our others are pretty mellow so she is a bit of an oddball, but she is only 2 months.
2 months is really young.
@ShadowWizard Who has access to Transifex for the language sites? Mods?
I think ash's original owner got him at about 3, then he had a few weeks to pick up bad habits
2:52 PM
Smoking and drinking?
@Bart was a lonely pup who wasn't brought out for proper walks.
Also, bored/bloody smart
so chewing on trunking and grabbing people's feet
@rene no, it's by invitation only as far as I know. It's a third party site they're using.
(i.e. not sharing login from SE)
@rene if スタック・γ‚ͺーバーフロー, I might check if it's still accessible from my account
@JourneymanGeek yeah I know. The breeder lets them leave at 2 months. She is a super smart little dog, already using the doggie door but is a handful at times.
Most of it went away once he realised people would play with him, and he wasn't going to be locked up all day
@bluefeet She'll turn out fine ;p
2:55 PM
@qwer Ah, you mean you have access to Transifex?
@JourneymanGeek I'm sure.
It is odd though being at home and crate training her. She is on a 2.5 hour crate, then 30-45 mins playtime right now.
Our dog... lived in the office at first ;p
@rene for Japanese SO, yes, because I volunteered (but didn't help much in the end) transifex.com/stack-exchange/stack-overflow-ja/dashboard
@qwer can you check for me if you have translated or are able to provide an translation for Requires Editing for questions where edits by the author or others would result in a question that is clear and answerable
2:57 PM
heh, Tim manage all of them transifex.com/user/profile/tpost
and for some reason, my parents didn't bother to crate train him. We kinda potty trained him... about a day after his ex-owner left
@JourneymanGeek I'd be too distracted having her with me in my office all day. I'd want to play with her instead of working. Plus our breeder recommends this type of schedule and has been doing it for 20+ years, so we're trying it
this is true
@rene it's separated into 2: "Requires editing" and "for questions where edits by the author or others would result in a question that is clear and answerable"
Ah, great!
That is what I wanted to know
2:59 PM
No prob
