Ooh maaaaann. What happened overnight?
2:02 AM
@JourneymanGeek Night.
2:19 AM
Is there a way to create a chat feed that posts all posts with a certain key word or key phrase?
I think there's per tag rss feeds.
And a RO can add rss feeds as chat feeds
I'm asking as the room owner.
But the thing I want to feed doesn't have a tag.
keyword or keyphrase... I don't think so
Ah. You need a way to get an RSS feed ._.
AFAIK, SE only provides RSS feed to tag, including SE Filtered Questions
well, not "only", but for filtering case...
2:25 AM
I clearly know what I'm doing:
anyway, looks like Morning

@Catija just keep making new ones. I'm about 2/5
One would think we'd have an easier way to opt in to it.

Are the answers worth keeping?
Just un-knit the whole question...
@NogShine Hmm, answered 18 mins ago, user already gone
The doggie is cleaning up
Here's a best practice: Get to 3k and close them yourself ;) || If you're looking for the speediest way to send people a message to have them gone, the Rene–Bart method is the most effective I've seen. Really, it doesn't matter what flag you use, and with the advent of new mods, we have too big an arsenal to deal with blatantly off-topic posts anyway. — M.A.R. ಠ_ಠ 2 mins ago
Imma have a Wikipedia page for that.
Aaaaaand of course they didn't
The recent retagging discussion had three sides to it:
1. Some folks argued the tags shouldn't have gone in the first place. Everyone needs some Lego.
2. Some folks argued that all retaggings should undergo the same bureaucratic process, with at least one meta.SE post no one would in reality care about.
3. Some folks argued that flooding the main page, retagging en masse, rendered it unusable. Valid point to be fair.
Someone do the Venn diagram. I'm not good at getting those done in time. I always end up resizing the same circle to find the perfect shape.
I pointed out vaguely that these should be differentiated and dealt with separately, and interestingly I do see answers focusing solely on one aspect than the others, but
Right now the post is a mishmash of opinions with no real conclusions. The retaggers weren't convinced they should have done things differently, and the proposers weren't convinced either of why a post for each tag is impractical.
5:16 AM
...there was a Lego tag?
Legos are bricks, not blocks. ;)
We need a Lego tag
Let's drop this and get some Lego questions on mse
5:17 AM
We need a LEGO swag contest and then we can have a LEGO tag?
It's LEGO. Proposes an edit for a hat
What's that hat, you look like a master of dark arts
5:18 AM
OMG... 13 unicorn people lego minifigs for $17. Can't beat that.
Q: What to build with [lego]?

JenayahCurrently our lego tag (and related tags) are a mess something that can probably be fixed fairly easily given that there are around thirty questions overall (this query, courtesy of @SQB, yields 32 results). Furthermore the tag description for lego is misleading: Lego is a line of plastic co...

Oh, wait... is that just one of them... Meh.
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ "Not here for suggestions" hat. Trigger is "Suggest edits and get rejected. Get an edit ban."
Talk about girl tax.
Women's apparel is always overpriced
5:20 AM
It's not apparel... it's an actual minifig.
So, the guy costs $10 less but comes with a shield and a sword. :/
Ergo, the shield and sword have negative value.
It's the age of bombs, swords are so . . . hmm, 2000?
That sounds like long ago
Yeah. Just like apparel.
No wonder warriors for hire would be cheap
OK, back to the book
Getting pants with actually pockets is... hard.
5:26 AM
@Catija There aren't enough pants out there that pass the VHS tape test
I'm not looking for JNCOs... Pants with pockets deep enough for my phone would be nice, though.
@Catija Most of my pairs of athletic shorts do pass the VHS tape test.
Yeah... I don't really want that.
@Catija Out of curiosity, did you manage to visit a closing Sears lately?
I don't understand the question.
You asked me before and I didn't answer you... I don't really know why it matters.
5:35 AM
@Catija ...because you might find a good pair of pants with decent pockets at Sears?
Q: Winter Bash 2018 LEGO Prizes!

jncratonHappy holidays everyone! Bricks Stack Exchange is once again participating in the Winter Bash celebration with the rest of the Stack Exchange network! While this is a "just for fun" activity, there are also a few different prizes available this year. The user with the most hats will win #1026...

@andmyself Yep.
Sorry for the re-ask. I thought you had simply stepped or navigated away from chat, so I figured I should re-ask later. (Feedback: an explicit "I do not wish to answer" would have been nice.)
in Winter Bash! 2018 edition on The Stack Exchange Network Chat, 3 mins ago, by Nog Shine
There should be a feature to wear multiple hats at a time. We can see both Ben and Gus wearing hats.
5:39 AM
It's difficult to tell the difference between "not responding to question" and "navigated away from chat". (Which is why I always ask people to ping me, so I get a notification in case I happen to have wandered away from chat.)
If I'm not in chat and you randomly ask me a question about something, particularly if it's personal, I'm probably not going to want to answer that.
Oh, wow... I just realized the MSE post on retagging/tag burnination... almost a mess
@Catija True, and I get it, but it would be nice if you said to the effect of "I do not wish to respond", so I don't chalk it up to "they're probably just left chat because they're busy, I'll ask them again later".
Also, I'm still trying to figure out what things constitute "personal" for you and what don't. For instance, if someone were to ask me the same question, I wouldn't consider it personal.
Again, sorry for re-asking.
5:56 AM
@SonictheInclusiveHedgehog And it'd be nice if I didn't have to. We're both struggling here. I don't like random, unsolicited pings about stuff... I have enough of a struggle staying on task without random pings. So, either I mute everyone and risk missing something important, or I lose my train of thought for something inane.
@Catija I understand you're different from me, and will respect that.
Having to respond to you, makes that even worse because I have to either take time to tell you "I do not wish to respond"... every time, and hope you actually listen - which you've shown a history of not doing... or I ignore and hope you eventually figure it out... I don't really feel like there's a win here for me.
How many times have I asked you not to ping me when we're in the middle of a conversation? At least 3-4... I stopped asking because nothing I did changed your behavior.
I stopped pinging you because I felt no need to do what you asked since you weren't going to do what I asked. Maybe that's petty and wrong of me but...
I dunno if Sonic has asked about "Sears is closing" to Catija before, but if it were me, I'd probably just said "Ugh, Sears are closing..." without pinging and see who responds to that to judge the interest.
6:01 AM
If no one is interested... then move on another topic...
Nov 28 at 0:42, by Sonic the Inclusive Hedgehog
@Catija Have you been to one of the two closing Sears stores here?
Sonic - you really need to respect people's space.
3 mins ago, by Sonic the Inclusive Hedgehog
@Catija I understand you're different from me, and will respect that.
So. Here is the hard decision. You clearly have difficulty with that.
That said, I regret taking a flu medicine (side-effect: sleepy, drowsy)... with coffee >_<
6:06 AM
Now. The question is how effectively to teach you that.
My body... feels... weird... now... @_@
So. I'm on my phone. I'm throwing you a chat suspension for 12 hours. I'm going to go home, and throw you a suspension on main.
Harassing people on chat is unacceptable
@JourneymanGeek What did I do on main?

@Mithrandir post a retag request ...
too soon, flower, too soon
@Mithrandir I have literally never seen a chat flag here.
8:45 AM
I have
(but MSE chat is odd?)
yep, managed to spam flag before the dog deleted the question.
(or was it the parrot?)
@Derpy smokey usually gets it first
we usually just go in afters and nuke the user at best.
I maybe catch 1 in, say, 20 posts before smokey nukes it
Odd that ROs can't see chat flags without 10k, though
well, I think they never really thought about it, and RO powers can be odd sometimes.
especially where all you need to do to be RO is to create a chatroom or sit around in it long enough.
8:49 AM
That is basically how I became an RO in SOCVR (not fully automatic)
likewise in root access

which is eventually how I ended up here ;p

I'm actually ok with not doing so
I will blame you next time he complains about no boom.
@Tinkeringbell I recall that moment where a car trailer with 5 new cars stopped in front of the Ministry of Education, getting the attention of all employees, while 5 over-paid consultants walked up to the trailer to receive their new lease car ... awkward ...

@Tinkeringbell don't believe you. Show us! ;)

@Tinkeringbell from your work place? cheers!
@ShadowWizard gotcha
@rene tanks
@rene That's probably what may happen here too :P
@Tinkeringbell are you over-paid too? :-O
11:52 AM
Probably ;)
(per month!)
more likely the consultants get shiny new cars, and then there's this sad little thing that looks like its seen better days seen once the trailer drives out, just sitting there, like an old abandoned dog....
