I'm in the same boat with 30,625 comments (I like to think usually friendly and often helpful) and I sure as hell won't be wasting my time authoring any more until there is a transparent and sane policy around this. — Pekka 웃 2 days ago

Ehh.
I think they misunderstand flags and comments...
Comments are a horse to water thing. The equine may not deem to be hydrated
Likewise mods may choose to act or not act on a flag depending on circumstances
 
2:12 AM
I've chosen to not really mind the CoC and will comment as I've been. If I got a warning, then I'd either take care more (if I care about the site), or... just leave the site ¯_(ツ)_/¯
I don't know if the will-be new "unwelcoming" comment flag option will work as expected...
 
Well we're going to have to figure that out as mods
And tbh it's going to be 'interesting'
 
2:48 AM
All that needs to be done is a change in tone and clearer communication of site policy. We can hold all questions to the same standards as we've been holding, yet still have a welcoming site if we just keep our tone better and if we properly communicate what we expect for questions.

I did it, I finally managed to get realtime SO feed for my discord bot.
 
43 messages moved to Chimney
 
@JourneymanGeek I have a feeling sanity will prevail in the end
The mods didn't change in this initiative so there's no reason to believe they'll all simultaneously go off the deep end

I rather take @Bart's legal advice ...
 
9:06 AM
Why isn't there a /docs/types page that would list all types? As you would expect it to exist given /docs/types/user does work.
 
9:24 AM
@Magisch less worried about mods than users
And in a sense needing to decide what is unwelcoming and working out where the lines are
 
10:11 AM
FR: add inbox notification in (almost) real-time when your comment got flagged as R/A or unwelcoming. (bonus: play undismissable sound on the mobile app)
 
Was asked some time ago at MSO. Didn't fly well.
 
they forgot the "alarm sound on the mobile app" part...

If there is a batch job that runs to update the networkwide favorites list, something is broken in that job and by the looks of it I suspect it is the delete step.
It did update the count so it fails in a remarkable way.
 
I'm starting to feel afraid of how often SO/SE broke something since the Welcoming/CoC era.
It's like... "the planet is breaking apart, let's be nice to each other" instead of fixing the planet itself.
(was I quoting something's storyline?)
 
To give them some leeway, they did announce at least 6 to 8 weeks ago that StackExchange.com would get a make-under (as in removing those functions that are either broken or seldom used) so I'm not surprised SE.com is not considered in their regression tests.
 
@JourneymanGeek It's gonna be the same as now
different people have different "lines" for too chatty, rude, etc.
So if you're a prolific flagger you'll find out soon where the mod's lines are and adjust to that
 
11:03 AM
@Magisch true and we need to work out those lines - and communicate internally what they are
 
I'm actually not too worried it'll go wrong
Stack moderators by and large aren't unreasonable people or given to idiotic decisions
 
11:41 AM
@Magisch a lot of users are not - and from experience there's folks who are happy to use stuff like this for drama purposes
 
12:35 PM
Random topic change: THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I saw my Li-Po battery (well, that Mi-Fi I talked yesterday) bloated due to overcharging. While. I. was. gone. Thankfully the bloating put the battery off from the device and stopped getting charged >_<!

@SomewhatMemorableName lithium–polonium? You should be more careful with such highly radioactive material. ;-)
 
12:56 PM
@SomewhatMemorableName next time don't leave the 🔋 alone, find a batterysitter to keep an eye on it. ;)
 
@Loong I would love an RTG powered phone: brick-free for life:)
 
@Loong lithium polymer :p
 
...also a good handwarmer in winter.
 
Tho I think there's phosphate chemistry batteries too
 
user271002
@MartinJames But don't repeat the SNAP-9A accident. ;-)
 
1:34 PM
@Loong how many bananas worth of radiation was that? ;p
 
user271002
@JourneymanGeek about 2.1E+10
 
Calm down please, there is no need to be so hostile to someone asking for help. As you correctly point out, I am taking your advice here. If there is really no way to recover this then the next steps I intend to take are to accept my own answer (the only relevant one) and then delete my account and start over. In my experience a new identity usually prevents further targeting and personal attacks. 3 rep points aren't worth worrying about. — ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー 1 hour ago

1:49 PM
That's bananas
@MartinJames on a 3310? ;p
@SomewhatMemorableName erf.
funny thing is quite a lot of folks have very recognisable writing styles and quirks
 
2:18 PM
It looks... weird? The site title looks so heavy with narrower header.
 
@SomewhatMemorableName its a stock theme no? ;p
The somewhat long name probably dosen't help
 
2:53 PM
I just saw a youtube video of someone who rescued a 15 LBs alligator and remodeled a guest bedroom in their house to house it
Thats some dedication
 
3:18 PM
15 pounds is... not that large
That's kinda close to ash's ideal weight, though he's almost 11kg at the moment
 
3:36 PM
@JourneymanGeek Yeah it's a rescue alligator
it was kept in a small wooden box with no water for 15+ years and they rescued it
So now it's stunted.
But still an alligator
Surprisingly chill in the video though. Really handleable
 
.... that's wrong :(
 
3:51 PM
@JourneymanGeek I know, they have a video about how they never wanted a alligator but when touring found this stunted sickly looking one that was kept in a box and talked the owner into giving it to them
And then they made a big enclosure for it out of a guest bedroom

welp, end of today's network-meta stalking...
 
Lol
Or yesterday's. It's morning?
 
But I heard from somewhere that the day ends when the party sleeps :(
 
6:56 PM
No sleep for me :p
 
7:16 PM
@SomewhatMemorableName It's entirely possible that he wanted to run for a while, since he has a 40/40 candidate score
 
 
1 hour later…
8:45 PM
there's a rep filter
 
 
2 hours later…
10:51 PM
*grumble* new login captcha is killing me trying to set up a Smokey instance
yes this is to keep out bots but then you keep out the nice bots
...it might be nice to have a dedicated bot login on [stackapps.se]
 
11:52 PM
If wishes were horses, mosquitoes would not become elephants.
(or something along those lines...)
;-) :-) ;-)
