Puzzling had 42 spam posts so far in March, vs 53 in all of 2017.
 
@SFTP it's trending these days or something?
@SFTP Baum would make a good mod. The others, I haven't talked to too much
I am a great psychiatrist and I can predict whether someone would be a good mod if I talk to them
 
user315433
Rob is here often, so you still have your chance.
 
user315433
psychologist, maybe...
 
user315433
Psychiatrist is what mods need after taking up the job.
 
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ problem is: once they talked with you, no-one wants the job ...
 
10:17 PM
@rene that was my plan all along. I just stopped the flower apocalypse
@SFTP exactly . . .
 
I'll blossom another year ...

Customer support is now engineering, too.
 
user315433
Next up, Sales Engineering Team.
 
user315433
Sales Engineer sounds better than sales representative.
 
Eh, it's really a sales job, anyway.
 
user315433
Indeed. "Pre-sales, you’ll work with customers to help them understand our offering and how it can fit into their current environment and development practices. "

> Experience with our tech stack: C#, MS SQL, Elasticsearch, Redis.
The ability to read and navigate a codebase. You can take a stacktrace and work your way through to understand what is really happening behind the scenes.
Networking and firewall configuration and troubleshooting experience.
 
user315433
Okay, there is an "engineer" part too.

In case there's not going to be a FAQ post.
 
@SFTP being 8th in primary is less good. Interesting :-)

@RoryAlsop That's an outlier territory, things aren't following any pattern there. The sole >7th place winner was someone who wrote a strongly worded nomination about content preservation and was named Jeremy Banks.
 
user315433
Who also happens to be the only SO mod with two disjoint periods of moderatorship.

Jeremy "fixed" the ballots anyway
 
user315433
Trivia: the shortest mod term at Stack Overflow was about 2 months, by Adam Lear: from November 22, 2011 to January 26, 2012.
 
Signs a contract and then just abandons his post... despicable... who lets these people even use the site in the first place. :P
 
@Catija power games
 
11:20 PM
@SFTP iirc the last time that job was listed one of the cms was shifted over.
 
... Great. Because we have a surplus of those.
 
user315433
Speaking of jobs...

> My wife just got a job offer that will pay her more than I earn. I've been in the workforce 10 times as long as she has. I could not be more proud. (In case you are wondering, she's spent her time becoming a pediatrics RN and works way harder than I do.) -- Jon Ericson at 3:49 PM - 19 Mar 2018
 
user315433
RN demand > CM demand
 
I'd argue that the CM demand is high... the funding to fill the demand, however...
 
11:28 PM
:p
 
user315433
Is the map with orange dots meant to be draggable? The pointer form suggests it is, and I vaguely recall it once was. Not now, at least for me in Chrome.stackoverflowbusiness.com/talent
 
@Catija twas one of the international team ones and there's even fewer now
 
user315433
So there were multiple reports about SEDE captcha, but I can't find any about SE captcha. As Ano pointed out, it's also v1. meta.stackexchange.com/captcha
 
AFAIK, that one isn't actually used
 
user315433
Indeed, I only remember seeing Not A Robot thing recently.
 
11:35 PM
@SFTP Alternatively, RN supply < CM supply.
 
There's a site-setting to turn nocaptcha (the robot thing) on/off, and it's been on everywhere for over 3 years
 
user315433
Math captcha was customized: math.stackexchange.com/captcha
 
...which probably means Area51 will break
 
Congrats to your wife, by the way @JonEricson :D
 
user315433
@JonEricson Really? I don't know how to measure the supply of CMs.
 
11:38 PM
Well, it's probably safe to assume that at least 10% of the moderators want the job, so that's about 55 people for 0 job openings? So, if the nursing world has 200 openings and zero candidates...
 
user315433
If /captcha isn't being used, someone wasted a bit of time updating it on SO: stackoverflow.com/captcha
 
@Catija Thanks! She's earned it.
 
@SFTP doesn't show the warning all the time
 
user315433
I meant the robot picture, that one is new.
 
> Enjoy arguing online? Light psychology? Helping people learn to work together? Plumbing the depths of human depravity? You could be... A Community Manager!
@SFTP oh. Yeah. Farewell, flight of the concords

Worldbuilding Captcha shows a robot, for extra irony. Also, a picture inside itself. worldbuilding.stackexchange.com/captcha
 
That site is so beautifully done
reminds me of the old pulp sci-fi magazines
well. The covers.
I'll really miss that design if we can't somehow include it post-ch-ch-ch-changes
 
user315433
> nothing is really beautiful unless it is useless; everything useful is ugly for it expresses a need
 
user315433
Oscar Wilde could be describing WB and SO.
 
which of course is why we can't have such a theme on SO

beauty is subjective, not many crocodiles think humans are beautiful and want to hump them
 
user202362
let self inflated ego not drift too far
