2:02 PM
@Ano Not now, I'm in the midst of things
@Taryn No problem, just please do it when you become free
@Magisch I found another episode of the sit-com
"same" time range.
fun fun fun
the story is getting better.
I wonder when the Celestial Dragons will make an appearance. -_-'
2:16 PM
I'm actually unsure whether to downvote or upvote that

his affliation is very clear
@Ano what you want her to explain? It's a very long answer.
If you mean this question, the answer is clear enough and gives the reason.
@ShadowWizard Not her post, but why the situation in that question contradicts the expected behavior in her post.
2:28 PM
@Ano but it's not. It was 2 votes for unclear, 2 votes for duplicate. Last was duplicate, hence it "wins".
All working as expected.
@ShadowWizard He specifically said he voted to close as unclear
@Ano oh wait
(The bold because you posted an incorrect answer, now removed, for others reading this)
hmm.... so looks like duplicate take precedence over other top level reasons.
Only SE staff can confirm this for sure, hopefully in less than 6-8 weeks.
@ShadowWizard That contradicts Taryn's post and the post the OP of that question linked.
2:30 PM
@Ano true, but since she's (always) busy, I won't build my hopes up for an answer any time soon.
I would've pinged Shog as usual, but decided to ping Taryn because she was involved (she wrote the contradictory post)
(and this folks, is why we can't have nice things :) )
@Ano well, IMO you have better chance to get answer with Shog, who also probably knows about those things.
(he appears to be more accessible than @bluefeet, and less angry at pings.)
@Shog9 The behavior here contradicts the expected behavior in the posts tha author and I linked:meta.stackexchange.com/questions/304663/…
@JourneymanGeek Called out
I haven't seen JNat here in a while
2:33 PM
@Ano there's a meta question - is it high priority something is closed for precisely the right reason?
@JourneymanGeek It means the post is incorrect, and thus someone's job to remove the incorrect info.
@Magisch yeah, he also ignored all my recent calls to nuke cross site spammers. Guess he became too busy with.. actual work? ;)
@ShadowWizard this is plausible!
I used to be able to have conversations with @bluefeet back when she was an SO mod, and not an employee. Same with @animuson.
Cross site spammers can now keep going on safely, nobody is there to nuke them.
2:34 PM
@ShadowWizard hah.
I do wish there was a more formal way to deal with those tho
@JourneymanGeek Merge with Deposit?
@Ano yeah, happens with power. Or with less available time. Can't really know for sure their reasons.
@Ano we cannot do that any more
36 secs ago, by Ano
@JourneymanGeek there is, via contact form. But it will take months, so worthless.
2:36 PM
we just have a quiet word with another mod. Then bury the spammers somewhere the sun never shines ;)
@ShadowWizard dosen't scale
@JourneymanGeek the sun never shines in many places.... :P
@ShadowWizard If he's the only person dealing with serial voting reversals then I might be the person burying him in work
@Magisch you monster ;)
@JourneymanGeek want to see something horrific?
2:38 PM
@Magisch Active, that is? I'm always here, lurking
... did someone accidentally put up a CM summoning circle? ;)
@JNat Yeah, he probably just said that to get you to chime in here
@JNat Are you still the only CM handling reversals?
I didn't ping on purpose
@JNat What's the status regarding Community Request discussions?
real talk, do CMs get a notification when you say their name even if you don't ping?
2:39 PM
@Magisch oh my... sending spammers to hunt @Magisch ;)
@Magisch I'm not the only. I handle a lot of them, and animuson handles a few too. The trickier ones we assign to Shog
y'all know that pinging bluefeet doesn't actually ping me anymore, right? :P
@Magisch No, I've mentioned Shog several times and (I bet) he hasn't been pinged
@Magisch nope. I just scan my open rooms on occasion
2:40 PM
(ironic if Shog chimes in now)
@JourneymanGeek totally not done purposely by me
@Taryn clearly.. who are you again? ;p
@Magisch no, but they often check the Tavern and can see their name in red... they do chat in private rooms on this domain too.
@Ano Y'mean this? No updates — otherwise, I'd have updated the post itself ;)
2:40 PM
@JourneymanGeek no one. nothing to see here move along
@Taryn of course, that's the whole fun :D
@ShadowWizard Yeah, at the time I pinged Taryn it said she talked 3 minutes ago, whereas there was no visible recent activity in her profile
(I think people would freak out if I changed my nick or stopped having my dog as an ava)
@JNat No, I mean the Community Request to do this:
@JourneymanGeek hence the reason for keeping my booby
2:41 PM
Q: Don't mark migrations as "rejected" if they were closed long after migration

Monica CellioA question was asked on Site A, where it collected answers before being migrated to Site B. On Site B it collected more answers and lived happily for a time. More than two years later, it was closed. Because it had been migrated originally, the closure was treated as a rejected migration. Thi...

@JNat can I count on y'all telling me when I get out of line flagging too much?
@Taryn soooo many things I shall refrain from saying ;)
@JourneymanGeek I freaked out when the dog ate @Undo's Z
@Ano they all chat like crazy in private rooms... Shog once posted ping leaderboard, it's insane
@Magisch lol sure
2:42 PM
@Taryn I simply cannot change my ava from my dog. There would be riots on multiple sites ;p
(I lead among non-gods ;))
I had to put on a mask because of @Shadow
@JourneymanGeek lol
A SO mod asked me to start flagging serial downvoting too, so they might kind of increase two to threefold soon
"shadow mask" an important component of a CRT TV
2:43 PM
@Ano I'm not sure I follow. Robert's answer there states that he dropped it into the "queue" I linked to... so... no updates
@JNat So when will it be up for discussion?
The other me edited that into your post, but you overrode that approval
Not sure if you're missing context here, but this comment addressed to you suggests you probably aren't:
Did you read the November update, @gparyani? There won't be any more updates unless there's actually something to write about. — JNat ♦ Jan 2 at 9:08
@JNat So when will there be something to write about?
@Ano Yes, and then I included it in the subsequent edit — you had put it in the wrong section of the post
@Ano You'll be the first to know ;)
2:47 PM
@JNat Which subsequent edit? I don't see it.
@JNat I told you so
@Ano is rarely wrong. o_O :D
Yeah, right. So it's not in the post, because it hasn't been discussed internally — that's why I reverted your edit. And as for when it'll be discussed... I got nothing new aside from what I've told you (several times) already
Reminds me of....
2:50 PM
more or less ;p
@ShadowWizard I'd be appeased if I had Google Maps running in my hand
which reminds me of @Bart! Where is @Bart? :P
@Ano all we need is some solder, an old cell phone, a bionic leg and ... a sawzall.
Which reminds me... I have work to finish... cya!
10 minutes to zzz time ;p
2:53 PM
@ShadowWizard I haven't simply been asking, "has it been implemented yet?". I've been asking, "what stage is it at? how much time is left?". Which is what Google Maps can tell you on the road.
@JourneymanGeek for many people, their avatars are kind of like their online personality
@Magisch also, my dog's adorable ;p
@Ano SE isn't Google... @JNat isn't Jen Fitzpatrick... ;)
And as I look out the window, it's a sunny morning here in Austin
Finally, concluding the ever-present fog
@Derpy Where?
@Derpy I thought it never snows in the cloud
By the way, I have cousins living in the UK and it's snowing hard there
Why are fan animations used as excuses to back up statements that aren't even made in the show?
Why is Sonic Boom used as excuses to back up statements that aren't even made in the video games?
Should I sleep with this full belly...
Because that one is the only one fan animation I am willing to consider canon-worthy. By which I mean that I wouldn't mind if it was canon.
3:41 PM
@Derpy Fanime. This is what it leads to.
Oh no
That's bound to lead to a PonyOverflowException
@MetaEd Nonsense. Haven't you noticed that the CMC already are somehow based on the Power Puff? Apple Bloom is Blossom, Sweetie is similar to Bubbles and Scootaloo is close to Buttercup. They also have the same voice actors :P
(that said, to be fair, Bubble's personality is probably more close to Derpy. And that is probably why Derpy's cutie mark is... some bubbles.)
No, that's because Derpy lives up to her name :>
4:09 PM
@PrincessLuna please do explain
you... know that the name "Derpy" was given by the fan because of the animation error involving Derpy's eyes, right?
#5 btw
@Derpy and no
Well, then know that the other, more offensive meaning originally had nothing to do with the character name.
to be fair, Derpy originally was just an animation error in episode 1
only after the fans gave her a name the writers of the show decided to make her a recurrent background character.
Also, that double meaning of the word backfired tremendously, at least once
after that incident, the character was avoided for a long time. Only returning "recently" (and now she is even hidden in the opening sequence)
Interjection: derp
  1. (slang) Draws attention to an act of foolishness or stupidity.
  2. I put chips in my soup instead of crackers. Derp.
  3. (slang) placeholder for unimportant details, blah blah blah
Verb: derp (third-person singular simple present derps, present participle derping, simple past and past participle derped)
  1. To act stupidly or foolishly
  2. To make a stupid mistake
  3. (slang, of eyes) To point in different directions; (of a person) To have a facial expression with one's eyes pointing in different directions.
Adjective: derp
  1. Alternative form of derb...
please, notice #3.
> To have a facial expression with one's eyes pointing in different directions.
That said, to be even more accurate, the official name of the character as now is...
yep - in the end they opted to refer to her as "Muffin" to avoid any further association with that incident.

@rene If you can't reproduce, give it a close vote.
7:32 PM
@Derpy Don't give me that much credit. I know enough for dad humor, that's all.
Sometimes I wonder if the devs need a red status tag that reads
7:58 PM
@Catija They can take that one
1 hour later…
9:00 PM
@Catija Glad that the sun is back finally?
@Ano I wouldn't know. I work in a windowless room and I won't be let free until dusk.
@Catija But during your commute?
"won't be let free until dusk"?
@Catija So you sleep there overnight?
Speaking of sleep, I finally managed to get myself back to a "normal" sleep pattern
Dusk is sundown...
9:03 PM
@Catija Yes, I was referring to your morning commute
I'm focused on shoving a small child into a car seat and getting him to school without him taking his shoes off and then getting to work... I don't really have time to pay attention to the sun.
@Catija Ah, I understand. Too young for that at the moment...
@Catija What kind of school?
@Catija Is there a "transitional kindergarten" program here, out of curiosity?
Well, he's only 18 months... so... ?
9:06 PM
One where older kids get to skip Pre-K and go straight to kindergarten, except it's modified to cover what's missed?
@Catija Ah, we don't quite call that school where I come from...sorry for the confusion.
They call themselves a school... I call them a school.
Anyhow, it was fun attending classes at "night"
@Catija Just about everyone I've met here has some sort of allergy issues here, and so do I...do you too?
I discovered a way to bypass the 5-edit restriction...submit the 5th and 6th edits at exactly the same time, so that both go through, triggering a race condition where both think they have only four edits pending
9:30 PM
@Catija I think you can help out here: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/307515/…
@Ano Site specific.
@Catija Don't think so:
> Is there a general SX policy about this situation?
... I can't speak for the entire network, but I can tell you that on M&TV we specifically had a policy that you tag based on the question, never the answer.
It was most obvious with ID questions... Someone asks "what's that movie about a bunch of dinosaurs being brought back to life in a park from the 90s?" You don't tag it after the fact.
@Catija What was the rationale, I'm curious?
@Catija That post has been edited with an example.
9:39 PM
@MetaEd What benefit does tagging it with the film or TV title have if the only people who know the title of the film are utterly uninterested in an ID question about it.
... ish.
Something like that... I remember a meta topic there about it but a quick search doesn't turn it up.
I suppose the interested people it excludes are people who would might be following that tag and have a better answer.
A better answer to an ID question? We don't (didn't) really welcome duplicate answers on ID questions... once it was answered, it was answered... as long as the initial answer was more than just "Jurassic Park".
9:58 PM
@Catija Fair point.
@Catija :
@Cai: Actually, this is about a case where the tag is based on the question, but you have to know the answer to realize that. — einpoklum 1 min ago

> You’ll be working as the only UX researcher on the Product Design team, which is lead by our first (and now former) UX researcher.
So, you'll be UX Researcher the Second.
if you want followers, you should get baby chicks, they tend to follow their owner everywhere ...
Kristina decided she's had enough of these U and their X.
11:37 PM
Oh, I think they say she got promoted to management.
Maybe U and ur X can get a room.
Management, what a way to go.
Depends on how they define "management"... I've heard that some managers actually still get to do the thing they like doing...
leadership vs management ...
So... is it new that they post the salary offering ranges? Because the top three jobs there (I think the newer ones) have them but the other ones don't...
11:46 PM
from experience of me renting out our properties with a range in price, you want to get higher end of rent, but those who want to rent only offer lower end
it's common for a company to offer a range of salary though
For Stack Overflow themselves, that range should be linked to the calculator that show you what maps you into that range: stackoverflow.com/company/salary/…
although the true rate for any role is the prevailing market rate
@JeremyBanks So the marketing positions aren't in the calculator because it really only does programming-related jobs?
so its a team of 2? 0_0
11:50 PM
@Catija They have Marketing Design in there. Salespeople's income is largely commission instead of salary AFAIK, so it wouldn't make sense to have them there. Dunno about the rest.
@Catija and some managers didn't ever want to do it in the first place...
Meanwhile my new manager is telling me how it's in our best interests not to know each other's salaries. Sure thing, buddy.
I said "marketing" but I really meant "sales".
@JeremyBanks Ugh. That's bad. That's scientifically actually wrong.
@JeremyBanks that's actually pretty common
also "new manager" are good words to hear ;p
I'm aware that it's a common corporate position, but I'm (very fortunately) used to having managers who are smart and are willing to speak frankly without just shilling the company line.
11:53 PM
@JeremyBanks heh, its critical in a body shop type place, and thats where the jobs might be for me :(
My salary is public by law :P Whee.
(I'd ping @Haney here as props but that would need a superping.)
@JourneymanGeek sorry, what part is critical there?
@JeremyBanks keeping your employees in the dark
11:54 PM
cause the business model relies on your client paying as much as possible, your employees as little as possible... ;p
while paying your employees...
I know our renters, sometimes, our potential renter's salary. They have to disclose that when they are applying for our properties.
It may often be in the company's interest, but it's very rarely in the individual employee's interest.
it isn't really in the client's interest either but "its easier"
Aye. I'm not like saying "radical transparency is the only moral option in 100% of cases, maaaan".
11:57 PM
@JourneymanGeek Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the chatroom beyond the Goblin City.
But don't tell me something's in my own interests when it's not. That's not a good way to build trust.
@MetaEd I kinda just wandered in ;p
@JeremyBanks I hope your new job has ... other... actual perks.
I've been watching too many Star Trek reruns. Every time I get this room's notification sound I want to say "enter".
@MetaEd Andy makes me turn it off at home because he used to have it as his ringtone.
11:59 PM
@Catija There are many positive and I don't actually need to interact with my direct manager much at all, so it's good. :)
that's a bonus!
Annoying your spouse?
Almost as good as annoying your teenage kid.
