The fun of seeing someone saying something controversial inadvertently, then watch the personal fanatically trying to bury said tweet under snows of other random tweet for either distraction or balance out the controversial tweet purposes. Also fun to watch my fat wyandotte chick being chased, slips and falls on the tile, the just sits there waiting to be captured (by me).

Fwiw, the level of false negatives is high for all comment flag types; relatively few comments get flagged period, even when they unarguably should be. There are too many comments. — Shog9 ♦ 2 hours ago
One way to reduce false negatives is to raise more flags; the other, to post fewer comments to begin with.
Step 1: Read a question.
Step 2: Get annoyed with said question.
Step 3: Look for an outlet: downvote? weak sauce. close? yeah, like it'll get reviewed, and the reasons don't really fit. Comment? Sure, let them have it.
Manish had a userscript Punch a user button!; this should be built into the site to provide an alternative to snarky comments.
@YvetteColomb how old are they?
1:59 AM
@TelKitty two new arrivals - the little one was weaned early - as his mother was starving - he has a problem with his back legs - I think it will sort out with nutrition and bandaging
he is 3 months tops - she is 4-5 months
twice his size
both recently trapped from the wild - part of the brumby rescue programs
darling little pets.
2:01 AM
you will meet them soon :D
and hopefull a healthy new baby too!
they're a perfect herd
I love the black patches on the faces
and hopefully one that's even younger
2:02 AM
No white on the feet - white feet tend to have weaker hooves
@TelKitty exactly - I'll be locking her up at night - but I don't think she's quite due yet - couple of more weeks, I hope anyway
not due on the 20th?
yes around then - but there's that leeway either side
I'm hoping the foal is healthy and while she's still cooking and I'm feeding Tuppy supplements, it gives the foal a chance to develop healthy bones etc
always scary when mum is malnourished
2:05 AM
these three would be around the same age then :)
Banjo is a year older
these and Tuppy's bub all same age within 5 months of each other
that little boy won't be big. Tuppy is reasonably big - bigger than Cleo. Banjo won't be big either
it was good to talk yesterday

The graph of questions/month (including deleted) shows interesting long term trends. SO peaked and stays there, SU shows steady decline starting in 2015, SF for even longer...
Unix grew until early 2017 and stopped. TeX stabilized in 2014. Is anything growing?
ru.SO is still growing. pt.SO peaked in mid-2017. ja.SO never really took off.
And the weirdest chart of all is Bitcoin
Looking at SciFi, it's clear when The Force's alarm went off.

@SFTP Launch of a car?
Well, one of the mods created a site about tracking the Tesla they launched into space which links back to the SE site and Elon Musk tweeted about the site... so it got a lot of activity.

Planetes (Japanese: プラネテス, Hepburn: Puranetesu, Greek: Πλανήτες, Planētes, the Modern Greek word for "planets") is a Japanese hard science fiction manga written and illustrated by Makoto Yukimura. It was adapted into a 26-episode anime television series by Sunrise, which was broadcast on NHK from October 2003 through April 2004. The story revolves around the crew of the debris collection craft, Toy Box, in the year 2075. The manga was published in English in North America by Tokyopop, and the anime was distributed in North America by Bandai Entertainment. Both the manga and anime received the Seiun...

Q: Are emoji allowed on Hinduism.StackExchange?

Rubellite FaePersonally I have found people to be rude on many, many SE sites. 😔 On a few occasions I have found that I was misinterpreting the other user's intent. I find that the skillful use of emoji prevents such misunderstandings and leads to an all-around warmer atmosphere. 😊 That is, they can make a ...

On a related notice, anyone using azure VM?
10:22 AM
@Derpy classic, yes.
@rene do you too have the impression that there is a big miss-match between the extimated $/Month cost displayed on the Choose a size page when you create a new VM and the values you can obtain from the external pricing calculator tool???
Oh ... I .. never used that, nor do I actively monitor how much is spend
so I can't answer that
@Derpy you always did... ;)
11:11 AM
@rene the pricing calculator is showing me an hourly price that seems to be two times what the actual portal shows me.
Great, right? This make cost estimates very easy....
usual Microsoft information dismanagement.
@Derpy You're supposed to not think about it a lot and just pay
They probably have accurate pricing for enterprise customers :p
@Magisch I am using the 130€/150$ / month free benefit from our MSND subscription
I want to know what VM size I can afford without going over my monthly free credit.
Pricing Calculator:
[ SmokeDetector | MS ] Manually reported question: Pest Control Sydney by Pest Control Sydney on biology.SE
11:20 AM
Azure Portal , VM creation summary:
compare the two prices.
Not even close.
12:08 PM
@Derpy Maybe one is without the storage?
@rene nope, the pricing tool does not include the storage as far as I know.
well, wasn't it Nick Craver who tweeted about the Licensing / pricing models kind of being insane?
I actually opened a support request and included these same screenshots with it. I am pretty sure there must be a reason for this difference - I just don't know where to look
Don't be surprised if the ticket get answered with a totally different price
The only thing I can think of is that maybe the fact that the azure free subscription is tied to our paid MSDN subscription is giving us a discount. Somewhere.
12:12 PM
yeah, that could be it.
@rene possible, but past months billing data seems to indicate that the lower pricing - the one shown in the portal - is the real one.
Now I'm curious to know the answer, keep me posted.
[ SmokeDetector | MS ] Manually reported answer: alt, title tags not showing by florensya on wordpress.SE
@Derpy It says there "Prices presented are retail prices and may not reflect discounts associated your subscription"
Maybe you're getting a discount as part of the free credit scheme?
12:28 PM
@Magisch that was a theory. But then, I would expect the shown price to be HIGHER than the actual applied one, since it doesn't include the discount.
Instead, the lower price is the one shown on the portal - that is, the one that should not include said discount.
As I said, it will be fun. I have opened a support request and asked for a clarification.
My head canon is that right now, a manager is asking one of the dev if he also published the changes to the live site when he updated the prices on the pricing calculator six month ago (or if he also committed the DB transaction after updating those data....)
@Derpy why hourly based hosting to begin with? Why not monthly payment?
10 euro a day sounds like tons of money
1:22 PM
@ShadowWizard because they have pay per usage pricing for most of the available resource offers.
that said - new "gem"

@ShadowWizard are you sure this isn't a spam seed?
@Derpy might be, but the only answer by that user is legit, so...
Can't flag based on "maybe spam seed". But probably best to keep an eye on that user.
One of the answer though...
3:02 PM
@HTTPS from high rep user, looks like the site itself accepts such "spammy" contents...
@Derpy any chance you played Star Ocean 5? Maybe you can answer this... :)
Though maybe identify-this-monster is off topic there, buh
downvote without comment!! SE is toxic!!!11!

but identify-req is almost always hit-and-miss
Well it's not typical identify-this qustion
It's game-inside-game thing (maybe)
Or maybe I just over-think the game design, lol
What's the name of the kingdom? Leslia Kingdom?
3:18 PM
@HTTPS what kingdom? In that game? There are several, the main is Resulia Kingdom. Why?
Yeah, I need the correct transliteration from the Japanese. Seems correct for Resulia
Wait, I see there's also Leslia kingdom, I'm not there yet. lol
Only in the beginning of the game.
I didn't take the screenshot, found it online.
Somehow the PS4 connection to my FB is borked so I can't really upload screenshots. :(
Not sure about Leslia, because in Japanese it's only read as resuria (and the usual L/R confusion)
heh, weird.
@ShadowWizard sorry, I can't say I recognize the character. Surely, it doesn't seem a reference to Domo-kun. Probably a generic cute character added just for design requirements.
That said, I don't exactly fond of Arqade comunity, and that's one of the reasons I have kept myself far from that site lately.
So, sorry, if I can find a reply, you will get it here, not on the site. In that remote opportunity, fell free to re-paste
3:44 PM
I answered the downvoted question, will I get downvoted too...?
@ShadowWizard disappointing answer, eh?
@HTTPS Possibly. So far I think there was just one downvote on my answer with the meaning "this was a too trivial question to answer". So it stood at -1 for a while. Five months later, it's at +2 and 3,250 views.

In principle that's why we recommend people to talk with their rubber duck.
Yet, their rubber duck is Stack Overflow.
@HTTPS Well, SO gives back loud "Quacks" in form of down- and closevotes :-D

is it ok to ask here, or does it have to go to a question on the main site?
@Étienne It's probably most appropriate at Meta SO, where that feature is installed.

ok, thanks
I don't want to ask there because I don't want to state that I'm searching job on a profile with my real name
so I won't ask at all

Comments on answers are important for pointing out problems, comments on questions less so. They are either misplaced answers or attempts to "improve" the question somewhere in the spectrum between verbal attack and hand-holding.
So... disable comments on questions? Let unclear questions sit there.

6:48 PM
Maybe was trying to comment or "continue a thread" under protected question.
@SFTP No. Comments are meant to ask for clarification (too much abused though, it seems)
Travel site has exceptionally high number of questions in answers because of the idea that one has to find a person with similar experience and ask them directly. It's somehow prevalent among travelers when visas or other gov't business is involved.
Okay. Another idea: comments under questions expire in 5 days. If the goal was to clarify the question, it will be either achieved in that time, or the question stays unclear.
Exclude comments with links to potential duplicates (another use case for comments) from this.
6:55 PM
Should be a powerful deterrent to answering in comments.
@Derpy yeah, turns out you're mostly right, I got a good answer on the question. :)
@HTTPS huh! That's you! I had no clue until I saw your chat reply! lol... actually it's a great answer, thanks!
not enough ! so, !!!
@rene Who are the room owners of such automatically moved comments?
Can't they delete them?
@πάνταῥεῖ only move them to another room, and that room needs to be public as well.
@πάνταῥεῖ not sure who will be RO, that is a good question
7:10 PM
@rene That's why I ashed
@rene it can be moved to a new room, then room set to Gallery, then after few days it will be auto deleted. Google won't find it anymore, and only 10k users will be able to see it if explicitly looking for it in rooms list.
Same level as deleted posts.

So that might be a problem indeed in the case of comments moved to chat.

@Shadow I should have said: It's seriously about the Science of Women :-D
There's no black hole gravity, which could you drag more than a women.
And maybe vice versa, but as a man I still can't tell so much about it, needs more research ...
