1:20 AM
I thought the sites were supposed to be read-only during the maintenance?
 
404
So they are, aren't they?
Chat is a separate thing.
 
@Alex the read only periods are short
 
@404 Some of the sites don't work at all.
 
Just long enough to cut over

It's weird seeing "read-only" notice on Stack Overflow front page. That page is... always read-only.
@Alex no-repro. I see the site as read-only.
But, you could be hitting a different server or something.
 
But Meta works apparently.
 
Hmm, now the other ones are working as well.

Apparently, "cashtag" is a thing on Twitter. twitter.com/search?q=%24x&src=cashtag_click
A lot of those are posted by Math Stack Bot twitter.com/stackmath
 
2:08 AM
Maintenance morning...
oh, it's already finished?
 
3:00 AM
It started?
 
3:23 AM
It "went as planned"...
Anyway,

Q: Do we need an [october] tag

MJeffryesWe don't have any "month" tags except for october. I am struggling to work out when such a tag would ever be useful. Should we delete it?

Calm before storm...
 
@OptimusPrime Sleep is full time job. ;)
@MetaAndrewT. this?
It's not even StackStatus' tweet, it's a re-tweet of Nick
 
We only need to know if Nick is up or down.
 
@MetaAndrewT. I've run out of Internet.
 
I've run out of coffee though...
 
Aaagh. And googling the error message doesn't help at all either. Stupid things. I guess hotspot it is today :/
 
7:42 AM
I've run out of sleep. Which is a problem. I need more.
 
@rene ask his wife
:P
 
Saving Private Nick
 
@Tinkeringbell did they pay?
 
@rene Dad says yes.... and a lot too :P
Something something 'uw IP breedband connectie werkt niet'
 
8:01 AM
@Tinkeringbell Do as I did and call the service number, then be in the queue for 6 to 8 hours ...
 
Nah, just sent your SCRUM master a whatsapp message stating that there's some internet problems and you might drop by into the office after all today (is there still room for one more?)... apparently that makes the internet realize it should fix itself.
 
lol
 
I'm not sure... I don't find this particular internet provider funny. Ever since we have gotten the new stuff, there seem to be regular weird problems and lost connections... I think I've never seen such an unreliable internet provider since the day I went on it for the first time.
 
Oh you young whippersnapper. Back in my day the internet was as reliable as an Elfstedentocht prediction.
 
@Bart Those are pretty reliable nowadays too! There won't be one :P
 
8:13 AM
Back in my day the "internet" was reliable until someone else needed the phone line ...
 
@rene Same here? I got to stay up late the first time I got to use the internet, as that meant it was cheaper too ;)
 
@Tinkeringbell YOU TAKE THAT BACK RIGHT NOW!!!
 
@Bart Oh dear. @rene I found the Frisian.
 
it giet oan ...
 
Nice try, but nope, not Frisian.
 
8:15 AM
@Bart Yeah sure, try and deny it :P
 
@Bart Glassian?
 
That's certainly closer
 
Nuked
 
Boom or Kaboom?
 
8:23 AM
Blasted
 
There was a bright flash and now my skin feels tingly and it emits light
 
Did you look into the flash?
 
Of course, you've got to keep an eye on those bastards
 
Hmm, you're supposed to be reset ....
 
8:58 AM
Nah his glasses are resistant to everything known to humanity.

10:15 AM
You have 60 Seconds to prepare...
 
I'm prepared
 
10:45 AM
@MetaAndrewT. I guess that left me unprepared. Now to figure out for what...
 
@MetaAndrewT. NO U PREPRAE
If it's a Saving Private Ryan reference Tom Hanks doesn't die so it's okay . . .
Whoops.
 
11:11 AM
@Bart Is it also green? Oh God please tell me it's not green
 
@M.A.R. Somewhere between green and yellow. It's hard to say because of the glow.
 
@Bart Look for symptoms. Symptoms may include: Dizziness, shortness of breath, popping out an extra eye, looking like a character in Simpsons, sneezing.

Apparently I got abducted after saying my last message...
anyway, it was supposed to be a reference to "60 Seconds" (the videogame) after Bart's message...
 
@MetaAndrewT. "Don't just stand there Ted"
 
3:09 PM
Uh, something wrong?
 
404
I guess it's just a regional usage difference.
But I understood "I should" as referring to yourself.
 
I accept it is Dutch regional
 
404
Possibly British and a lot of other places, too.
 
and fixed. Thanks @404, it is appreciated

Are community ads tied to having a custom design?

Q: Want community promotion ads

Always ConfusedJust like BioSe community, CogSci SE community should have community promotion ads. These are created by website users, is relevant to site, is interest-based, is engaging, is knowledgiable, and is super fun. So i plea to start this practice in CogSci Meta too. Here I just copy paste a sam...

 
They're tied to having graduated...
 
404
Graduated can mean so many different things today.
 
That said... it probably won't stay that way for much longer. There's little reason to prevent beta sites from having them.
 
Or like, "public beta" label anymore, I hoope...
though the tie between full rep-privilege/site-design is still a mystery, since private beta->site-design is too much a jump
(I can't make coherent sentience when too sleepy)
 
404
An obvious solution is to use more than one letter of Greek alphabet.
Or go the Android way of versioning: Cognitive Sciences Ice Cream Sandwich.
 
5:51 PM
Ironically, Android has stopped using dessert versioning since Android 10...

@Catija So if a moderator creates their own post, will its functionality still work even though the site is in beta?
 
No
 
It doesn't require the site to be designed, does it? Or does it also work on non-designed graduated sites?
 
We have to connect the post to stuff behind the scenes. Just creating the meta post isn't enough.
 
Oh, so it won't work on graduated sites even?
 
8:52 PM
Correct. We have to send a list of URLs to a dev to have them activated.
 
Wait a minute; so that's how previous years' ad posts stop working despite still continuing to have the tag. I thought it had something to do with the fact that previous years' posts get closed as duplicates of the next years', but since I rejoined, I haven't seen that happening in all cases.
And ultimately, it was easy to change SO's ad system to come from the new MSO rather than the old MSO (now MSE), when the MSO-MSE split happened; it just involved changing the URL.
