@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog It reported it, just didn't give you feedback in here. The Charcoal team has minimized what Smokey says in here so if you don't get a "you're not privileged to do this" message, it's safe to consider it reported...
@Catija Ah, was wondering that. I did a similar thing in CHQ and got an immediate return message
should smokey always report to the room where he was commanded from to report?
@JohnDvorak Probably a good idea for a
Tavern reports are delayed intentionally
12:26 AM
The reports only populate in here after five minutes, I think?
Why should !!/reports be any different?
so that you get feedback to your actions
If you want feedback, the feedback can be turned on... doesn't need to have the report show up.
@Catija Then turn it on
FWIW manual reports have never bypassed the delay
It's not a bug
12:28 AM
It's a FR, OFC
that report came it at :14 on the button
no dispute about that
One answer-dv would be enough for I need a new hosting company (LAMP), suggestions? to roomba
I'm out of delete votes
12:31 AM
unfortunately, we're not to ask for downvotes
@JohnDvorak delete votes
Wasn't it said, "Ask and you shall receive"?
Well there are many translations as usual. biblehub.com/matthew/7-7.htm
Also, I didn't ask for votes, just stated a fact. :)
@if.... (upvotes all the answers)

Technical Communication... you can tell that a proposal is mostly SE / Area 51 regulars by comparing the activity of its main and meta sites. The number of questions: 25:9. Compare to Stellar with 113:13.
The site proposal was originally titled Documentation but was renamed because of a certain ill-fated experiment.
2:25 AM
@if.... Actually, it was refocused later to cover things like oral communication, to prevent it from being closed as a duplicate of Writers.
@if.... Didn't Stellar reach 100% commitment within two days? Is that the record, if so?
iota, Stellar, what's the difference...
Since now, everytime I see an email address on obvious spam, I send it to spam mailing list

MahoukIf I could kiss borbas dot geri at gmail dot com here, I would! Setting the full path to the certificate file fixed it.

I thought that "here" describe the place to be kissed, and hesitated to click.

Oh, yeah, [email protected] is a U.S.-government email address for forwarding email spam

@TelautonomousKitty out of the blue, Google Reverse Image search tells that this is "orange"...

I'm glad that Meta has become more serious than it used to be under my previous incarnation. I was just having trouble with the jokes being cracked here all the time.
6:55 AM
@Shog9 Does this still happen? If so, why don't I see this in the revision history, even on questions where it was publicly visible before?
Q: What is the community mailbox?

user215114What is the community mailbox ([email protected]) for and what happens to messages that are sent to it? Additionally, on some closed questions that have lots of views, I see the following message in the revision history just when the question is closed: occurred sometime (right jus...

@TelautonomousKitty I'll see you soonish. I left my phone in the car last night - so haven't seen any messages

@YvetteColomb going now, be there in 20 minutes

Did I miss anything? First they tried to burn down SB, and then they tried to drowned it in mud... Better not be locusts next
Did I miss everything?

@SmokeDetector Really?
@SmokeDetector Unless I'm missing something, that's NAA for me, not R/A.
@SensibleAlexander yeah, no red flag needed
It's accusing the people attempting to help of being "crazy", after we tried to guide him on his two other deleted answers there.
...which also included things like "What's wrong with you people?"
Anyway, it's gone now.
Thanks for filling the blank. Personally, judging from that post alone, that's almost borderline for me, but not yet crossing the line. But yeah, that's me (and probably rene)

its at least NAAish
12:33 PM
the bunnies in the neighbourhood are multiplying like ... the rabbits
they started with 3-4, now there are probably 7-10 of them
at this rate, I will be able to catch a baby rabbit and hold it gently in my hand and pat it softly in less than 24 months time
12:46 PM
and when this happens, my evil plan to turn Telkitty into Fluttershy will finally be complete.
I doubt I will ever be a unicorn pony
1:21 PM
@TelautonomousKitty or accidentally step on one and be forced to clean up the mess
wasn't Tara Strong also lego Unikitty voice actor? That's is a sign. All the kitties will slowly converted to ponies.
Candy colored ponies.
people's obsession with that show is a little scary

I just received the email about the WB swag.
It's from animuson.
Guys check your inbox.
5:02 PM
@bluefeet as you have some access to the prod db now and a minute to spare would you mind giving me an hint here on how much the SEDE db size for StackOverflow is different from the production db size of StackOverflow? All numbers in bytes on disk.
@rene yup
StackOverflow		ROWS	358284928
StackOverflow_Log	LOG	49311744
there, stupid formatting
@bluefeet does that include logging since 2008 or so? That is way bigger then I expected.
@bluefeet thanks!
@rene that's a straight query of select name, type_desc, size from sys.database_files
Edited those numbers in. Now we wait for the meta rep to build up ...
5:26 PM
@rene sock puppet upvotes multiple times Enjoy all that meta rep

Just out of curiosity, what do you think of a proposal to allow moderators to mark a chat room as "do not freeze"?
In other words, prevent a room from freezing even if it meets the criteria
Why would you need that feature?
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog having it unfrozen is frictionless if you prepared for that upfront with a mod. We let the SOCVR Roommeetng chatroom freeze and then flag for a mod before the next meeting to have it defrosted.
It wouldn't need a mark or so, me thinks.
@Andy Several official chat rooms for certain sites get frozen unnecessarily (e.g. Area 51). Also, unfreezing doesn't count as new activity, so it's possible that a room can get frozen immediately after a mod unfreezes it
Also, The Assembly, a room whose one of its explicit intents is a place where you can request a mod to unfreeze any room, sometimes itself gets frozen
(Just a quick side question: are mods able to manually freeze rooms, or are all freezes automatic?)
Mods can freeze a room
@Catija Just received a strange email about a skeleton found at Pickle...what's happening?
1 hour later…
6:58 PM
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog Eww?
I don't have any additional info... just what's in the email... there's a reason one of the streets at UT is "Robert De[a]dman Drive"?
sounds like if UT had a mod who'd been able to freeze the correct room you'd have a corpse instead of a skeleton
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog yes
> Skeletal remains have been found in what appears to have once been a transient camp in a wooded area on the West Pickle Research Campus, located 9 miles north of UT's main campus. There is no evidence of foul play.

Please avoid the West Pickle Research Campus area.

There is no threat to the UT main campus or the Pickle Research campuses at this time.
For the curious... There's not really much to it.
@Shog9 Or if UT was somewhere that actually froze?
@Shog9 "If so, why don't I see this in the revision history, even on questions where it was publicly visible before?"
If the answer is "because there's no point", then why was it previously publicly visible for a time?
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog it's not a publicly-visible revision entry
entirely possible it was for a while
I'd have to check

I have the knack for consistently arriving during the chat-activity dead-zone.
That sort of implies that this room isn't always a dead zone ;)

That was only like... 5 minutes :P

Math.pow(2, 63) - 1?
I don't know what that means.
maximum signed 64 bit integer
bigger than 525600
that's all :P
Not if it's in seconds and mine's in minutes :P
... maybe.
Or miliseconds.
The number 9,223,372,036,854,775,807 is an integer equal to 263 − 1. Its prime factorization is 72 · 73 · 127 · 337 · 92737 · 649657, which is equal to Φ1(2) · Φ3(2) · Φ7(2) · Φ9(2) · Φ21(2) · Φ63(2). == In computing == The number 9,223,372,036,854,775,807, equivalent to the hexadecimal value 7FFF,FFFF,FFFF,FFFF16, is the maximum value for a 64-bit signed integer in computing. It is therefore the maximum value for a variable declared as a long integer (long, long long int, or bigint) in many programming languages running on modern computers. The presence of the value may reflect an error, overflow...
Even has its own Wikipedia article.
That seems a lot.

@Shog9 You found anything yet?

@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog nuked
@TelautonomousKitty me too.. probably @Catija as well?
@ShadowtheHedgehogWizard That happened a long time ago
@ShadowtheHedgehogWizard Yep.
Better late than never...
@animuson did you change your surname?
he's not pingable, he's rarely visiting here.
You mean the email? It wasn't from him this time
11:52 PM
@ShadowtheHedgehogWizard He used to be active here in 2013
ancient history...
Lix was active here too years ago.
last time when I received a swag email from animuson it's signed Kyle Staskiewicz and this time, it's Kyle Lineman
@Lix random ping! :D
@TelautonomousKitty oh wait... you're correct! lol
Yup he changed name.
Well, I did the same when I got married.
@TelautonomousKitty He probably installs power lines now.
Changed the surname, though not to the wife's name, but a different name. Long story.
11:55 PM
@ShadowtheHedgehogWizard Wha? My email was from animuson...
@Catija yeah, saw it now on PC too, saw it first on phone where there's no picture so didn't know it's him
In Israel it's common to change "unreadable" surname to something more simple.
@ShadowtheHedgehogWizard Ah, in India and here in the States it's common for the wife to change her name, while the husband's name remains the same. It's a rather sexist practice in my opinion, and I prefer the French practice of making no changes whatsoever
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog same here, what I did was uncommon.
But the moose became an elk, interesting.
