@Ano makes a confession!
A: Suggested edit by Anonymous

gparyaniI'm the anonymous editor. I'm responsible for ~95% of anonymous edits in the past year here on MSE. The proof: https://meta.stackexchange.com/review/suggested-edits/55306 First, a little about myself. Back in 2013, I created an account on Stack Overflow, so I could get help for computer programm...

wait.. even better...
no, stashbarge
@rene Punyon!
@Derpy -1 that's a beard, not moustache
Q: The mysterious Epic Punyon Beard

Austin HenleyI have just seen the hat known as Epic Punyon Beard for the first time. Does anyone have any information (or hints if you don't want to spoil it) on this mysterious hat!?!? Here are the given (but not so useful) clues: The hat in action: UPDATE: Shog9 states that the beard is possible but...

1:07 PM
what.... is... that.... ?? ????
@Chicken ๐Ÿ”
...a feed for Ano to talk here!?
Might be a dev made mistake and brought it to wrong room
1:10 PM
Or a Winter Bash Easter Chicken Egg
There are tons of private rooms on this domain full with activity and probably all kinds of feeds too....
6 rooms with about 15 users chatting in the last 120 minutes.
Chicken is not a user it seems?
Devs do not make <connection lost>
1:14 PM
@Derpy No such command 'birdseed'.
@rene feed
You are on the way to destruction
@ShadowWizard we do we have a chicken feed? Or do we feed the chicken? Or does the chicken feed?
@ShadowWizard not in feeds currently configured for this room
1:14 PM
Q: What are the negative users on chat?

kinokijuf Possible Duplicate: System Users for Chat I mean like this: http://chat.stackexchange.com/users/-42/clippy They aren't linked to any stackexchange account.

What it's called... easier to just call them all Feeds.... ;)
SOmeone should ask on meta ;p
Point is, I can't kick the Chicken
You don't kick the chicken!
@rene Of course you can't it's a system user!
1:16 PM
Can you cho.... never mind
It can kick you
Try it!
or peck your eyes out
Seriously though, like Community, it's not a real user.
@ShadowWizard but but
1:17 PM
So we can't ping it, can't kick it, etc.
waiting for the first contact...
@JourneymanGeek only @Nick knows.
There's no devs/cms to blame either.
1:17 PM
Egg hat.
@AndrewT. It's Pseudohuman's fault.
smells like a trick out of his sleeve. :D
@Nick knows what fowlness lurks in the hearts of chickens?
@SmokeDetector who!?
but the bot hadn't interacted here recently, still included on the wheel of blame???
or it is the Chicken.
Dec 6 at 20:23, by angussidney
By the way everyone, sorry if Smokey acts a little weirdly/differently over the next few days, weโ€™ve just done a massive refactor of our chat system and weโ€™ve encountered a few bugs that we werenโ€™t anticipating.
Probably they changed it to take from all users currently in the room.
/cc @angussidney ^
@ShadowWizard No such command 'foobar'.
That's new too ^
@Chicken ๐Ÿฅš
1:20 PM
!!/two words
maybe the chicken is related to the turkey hat.
huh, probably onebox performs sanity check for user ID
or maybe the chicken will become the turkey hat but it escaped while they were bringing it to "Food&Seasoning"
1:23 PM
aka regex to determine if to onebox or not takes only positive numbers :/
@Derpy yeah, I suspect that as well
@AndrewT. No such command 'myโ€…dear,โ€…watson',โ€…youโ€…can'tโ€…stopโ€…me,โ€…'plebs'.
@ShadowWizard No such command '@rene'.
did it ping you @rene? ^ ^^
1:24 PM
@ShadowWizard No such command 'โ€ฎ@rene'.
And this one? @rene ^
Wait... @rene did you actually try to kick the chicken out? LOL
late bloomer here
I'll never kick a chicken.
I wonder if Chicken bots appeared on other chat domains as well?
[ SmokeDetector | MS ] Blacklisted website in answer: How to download all di.fm & sky.fm playlists at once? by Ade on webapps.SE
@ShadowWizard chat.stackexchange.com/users/-717/kevin-van-der-velden anything over 717 is a 404 error
so, they got a duck instead
1:31 PM
@SmokeDetector yes
@ShadowWizard yes again
lol again
HTTP 197: Not a Chicken
@Derpy but the duck did not intrude into rooms and quacked.
wait, it's not a chicken.
1:43 PM
chicken not children
Q: What is.... the chicken?

Journeyman GeekSo, we just noticed a new, fowl user on the tavern I think he called us chicken. Or called himself a chicken. Or something poultry like that. And interestingly its a system user. So... what's the story? Who knows what fowlness lurks in the heart of the chicken?

Kinda shocked no one did it earlier. And the lack of poultry puns.
@rene how's the snow treating you over there? I left for work early enough this morning to arrive before first snowfall, but looks like I'll have to take a train home if I don't want to spend 3+ hours for 70km. Chaos everywhere :(
@JourneymanGeek lel, got downvoted
@AndrewT. oh well. 4th for the day
Maybe someone prefers ducks?
Calling it: new Hairboat styled hat. To avoid having a random lucky employee to win a free pings Epic Loot Box they have created a dedicated spam receiver account. Probably related to the turkey hat if that is getting implemented as someone suggested.. — Derpy 1 min ago
1:56 PM
@Stijn It started around 10:30 it is 4 cm's now. I work from home but I did some shopping early. I had to drive home y'day from the north back to the R'dam area. Till amsterdam it was pretty scary now and then.

@SmokeDetector :/
@AndrewT. hmm?
Why sad?
A: The Quest for the Winter Chickens of the Bash

TelkittyYou mean those chickens? ๐Ÿ˜„

@Derpy OMG
@ShadowWizard not sad, just... "meh"
2:01 PM
two years later, we will have the promised chickens.
furthermore, it makes sense : every year I keep asking for easter eggs on the Bash site.
@AndrewT. :/
technically, winterbash is easter eggs. In Xmas. ...
oh wait
Wouldn't that make em christmas eggs?
Rooster Eggs
Since this is no Easter and so we don't have any chocolate eggs laying rabbit running around, the only other egg-producing animal they could think off was a chicken
be happy: at least they are not spider eggs
or snake
platypus eggs!
2:07 PM
Or Eggs McLaren
That's a name I have not seen in quite a while
@JourneymanGeek only two months
Q: Why the name Eggs McLaren?

the4kmanAs you might know, this puppet account asked the first non-deleted question on Stack Overflow and is present on other SE sites as well. I'm just curious what does the name mean and why that name was chosen (presumably by Jeff Atwood).

> What is.... the Chicken? ๐Ÿ”
.... I didn't even know you could emoji titles... @ShadowWizard
lol of course you can ๐Ÿ”
emoji is just a unicode... with image
2:14 PM
Think I'll append ๐Ÿ” to all my messages now
@Stijn not sure how the NMBS is coping but the NS isn't so sure about their services ...
also, the android chicken looks better
@AndrewT. not really image, it's part of the font ๐Ÿ”
Hene different look for every OS ๐Ÿ”
@ShadowWizard this should be almost as interesting from my last user ID question
Image would have looked the same. ๐Ÿ”
2:15 PM
@rene most routes are OK, some small delays. Some routes are closed. But they prepared by activating the heating elements at the track switches last night.
The bus service, on the other hand :p
oh no we can't search for ๐Ÿ”! It's ignored! :(
ya, you can't search for emoji ;p
> Here comes a new challenger!
square? ^ ๐Ÿ”
2:17 PM
Q: Searching for emoji in chat is 💩 (broken)

BobRecently, I've been recommending music in chat, 'tagging' it with emoji (๐ŸŽถ). But they don't come up in search! https://chat.stackexchange.com/search?q=%F0%9F%8E%B6&room=118 Yea, this is probably waaaaaaaay down the priority list. But it's a nice-to-have.

@ShadowWizard Real rooster, or so I thought
I wonder if it works like in WoW...
@Chicken /cluck
@AndrewT. it is even a square on my android device
you use some very fancy fonts... @Derpy @Andrew ;) ๐Ÿ”
@ShadowWizard just a normal Chrome 63 62 on Windows 10...
2:19 PM
@Stijn WoW?
works for me on chrome android
yeah, I'd say "upgrade your Android version" :(
2:23 PM
@Stijn Yep, I know. I meant that LotRO version of the "chicken quest" is far more irritating.
in The Assembly on The Stack Exchange Network Chat, 42 mins ago, by gparyani
About @Chicken: this may be relevant
@AndrewT. borderlands!!!!!11!!!
@Chicken po-dack
@ShadowWizard the mixed gender terms was the joke ;p
2:40 PM
@Derpy what's that?
@Derpy you can't repeat trolling. ;)
@AndrewT. @ShadowWizard I don't know what you two are talking about
@AndrewT. it's @Derpy doing @Telkitty
cover version? ;)
2:43 PM
@ShadowWizard maybe the real troll was making you think I could be @Telkitty in the first place.
That would be awesome trolling! :D
"when the troll seems to be too evident, you are looking at the wrong troll"
3:17 PM
@rene a colleague just came back after waiting 45 minutes, apparently there was an accident and there are almost no trains leaving the station here
so I've no way to get home now
Oh boy ....
I guess calling Thuisbezorgd.be for some food isn't going to work either ...
@Stijn in case you need to stay at the office for the night, you might want to check the heating stays on ....
Well... we're in a modern "passive" building, there is no heating here
I'm at the blue circle at the right, and need to get to the one at the left
Just go over Eeklo, Brugge, Torhout ...
3:27 PM
those are jammed too, but you only see it when you zoom in further :p
gonna try the highway towards France, that one is only in yellow
@Stijn I feel very sorry for you: i.sstatic.net/QaUEO.jpg
4:27 PM
So... was there ever any follow up on the crayons and swag thing?
@Catija I think that @TimPost got scared off by the chicken, so it never happened
Chickens are scary.
But what if we are supposed to color the chicken? It's a perfect blank canvas.
4:48 PM
@Stijn At least it's not midsummer evening - you'd have a big evil Sun stuck in your face the whole way through.
@Catija Was there ever followup on most of Tim's ideas posted on Meta?
@CrazyIvan I don't know what his track record is... I just wanted some swag.
@CrazyIvan Hey, they may still be doing stuff... I'm really crossing my fingers for my suggestion there.
They're drawing hats, for one
5:18 PM
Swag contests seem unlikely at these dark times.
5:30 PM
Maybe Tim wanted us to draw hats for them.
6:08 PM

I wouldn't say "the best" but agree with "better of the two".

Yeah, but if Alyssa was still around, she'd make a listicle for the blog out of this, with a link to Jobs at the end....
@Mithrandir You calling me chicken?
6:42 PM
@TimPost yes. Yes I am.
But in retrospect, it's possible I should have said that you're acting like a monkey.
6:54 PM
Chaos monkey?
@Chicken I'm sorry, Chicken, but that second emoji seems to be broken.
@CrazyIvan The secret to learning a language (any language) is using it. Answering (when you don't already know the answer) forces you to experiment. (I should probably expand on that idea in my blog post. Hmmmm....)
1 hour later…
8:10 PM
@Catija I can't see it either, but Google seems to tell me it's an egg emoji.
@Mithrandir yeah. I can see it on my phone.
Is there a dialect of English in which "brocolli" is considered correct spelling?
Don't want to be like one of those folks changing "centre" to "center", etc.
I don't think so.
Thanks; I couldn't find it either.
8:24 PM
Seems to be a common misspelling, though.
1 hour later…
9:51 PM
1 1
I guess this user shouldn't count as an employee either, despite API saying so. Damn edge cases...
10:11 PM
U can't haz employee list!
10:43 PM
Yay! I'm in, finally!
But do you really want to be?
The Tavern is a silly place.
@Catija o rly
@CrazyIvan Yes... because they will pepper the list with Unibots and other mis-labled non-staff.
Eliza looks suspicious too.
Especially considering chat activity
10:52 PM
What about sassie?
I do have to admit the brilliance of that avatar, though.
Q: Is tequila a depressant?

sassieI recently read this Buzzfeed article after witnessing excessive drunk crying. It claims: Unlike other forms of alcohol, tequila is not a depressant. As a source, it quotes Esquire: Tequila is not a depressant. At least it's not borne out by our research. Seldom is the time that te...

Sassie is definitely a real person.
in The Couch, Nov 25 '11 at 20:41, by Eliza
@JeremyBanks How long have you been in horrible distress at not knowing who created I?
A- for grammar
11:27 PM
Thanks @rene
be careful ....
Don't hit the unprotect button twice.
... why?
Did Startups really have "0 users with 200+ rep"?
Caching? The Startups v1 page shows correct stats.
11:37 PM
@Catija when it starts it processes in the background while it leaves the button enabled. if you click it again it will do the question again, failing the ones already done, hitting the server more often. Anyway, now fixed in v0.2
@rene So, when I hit "search" it doesn't give me the results of that search or tell me when it's completed?
hold on ...
@Catija make sure you have this line for the filter: const filter = (i) => i.protectedDate < Date.parse('2017-11-01');
you need to make that change in the script
then this what you should get: i.sstatic.net/aKpTE.gif
(when run on MSE)
@rene The only difference I see between that line and the one I have already is a double space between the => and i.protectedDate
oh, Ok. That should work then ....O_o
@rene That's super cool... so I can uncheck any of the ones I don't want to unprotect, and then click "unprotect".
11:49 PM
(I'd already removed the filter by your username, if that's what you were expecting me to have in there)
Hmmmm... so I've found a slight problem... it only works on page one of the protected questions list.
Oh ... I thought the * in the match rule should have fixed that
Does it need a * at the end or something?
Is kotlin-android somehow different from kotlin?
@Catija like so // @match https://*.stackexchange.com/tools/protected-questions*
11:54 PM
yeah, ok. that's what I figured.
I recall I had that in there but removed it for unknown reasons
I like it a lot.
I find it extremely tricky as you can easily unprotect all questions ...
vnext will need a few safeguards
Yeah, I'm not going to make it "public" on IPS any time soon... but I will let HDE know.
@Catija your filter works as well?
