hey everyone
how long has github been down?
makes me :(
Seems fine to me, albeit a little slow.
heh... all I had to do is ask and it came back.
I should ask questions on here more often
We're miracle workers ;)
heh... nope still down for me.
12:29 AM
Well, at least there's unicorns.
And they are tracking the source of them.
@JeremyBanksʬʬʬ Not only that but it has two sub-categories
12:48 AM
Unicorns are bad at GitHub

Q: Why would people want to purchase StackOverflow accounts versus creating a new one?

StéphaneI posted a new question on SO this afternoon and immediately after received an offer by e-mail to purchase my StackOverflow account. I'm confused as to why someone would even consider purchasing an account. I thought my account would be basically useless in anyone else's hands: the account in ...

I know, right?
That was my reaction too.
2:40 AM
@JeremyBanksʬʬʬ Nice to know about that.
12 hours and 49 minutes until my internship starts!
@JeremyBanksʬʬʬ Heh, I decided that I was never going to read reddit when they invaded the Google+ launch.

Q: Geo Javascript decoding

Kolly BoyI need explanation on how this code works and how I can edit it to make changes, It is a Geo IP plugin code. Thanks in advance <!--Geo IP plugin (do not remove or page breaks like last time)--> <script> var _0x594c=["\x72\x61\x6E\x64\x6F\x6D","\x66\x6C\x6F\x6F\x72","\x61\x64...

@PekkasReputationBordello that looks awfully like a compromised webserver
11:56 AM
I think the story is even sadder in this case:
> <!--Geo IP plugin (do not remove or page breaks like last time)-->
There seems to be some contact between the guy who put the code there, and the OP.
Next up - a guestbook script that requires include files from hotkinkydonkeyporn.com

Al Gore invented all things computer related. That's why we call solutions to problems "Algorithms".
12:23 PM
@PekkasReputationBordello I sort of assumed that a message like that was planted there by the person who planted the suspicious code to try and scare someone who found it into not removing it
12:46 PM
@awoodland yeah, possible too!

After reading through Question title that doesn't describe the problem, I remembered a hilarious song in the same style by a band name DaVinci's Notebook.
Funny if you like a capella comedy music, that is. Which I do =)

Very meta.

Hmm, I ran into an interesting bug on Meta last night, but I'm not sure anything can be done about it...

@TimStone ?
For some reason, while I was posting this answer, after a few uploads all of my attempts to add images were resulting in the error page, which contains the frame busting JavaScript, causing the frame busting dialog to come up.
Luckily it was defeated by they "Are you sure you want to leave this page?" dialog
JavaScript is the correct capitalisation/spacing for that right?
(unrelated, but it reminded me)
JavaScript is a prototype-based scripting language that is dynamic, weakly typed and has first-class functions. It is a multi-paradigm language, supporting object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles. JavaScript was formalized in the ECMAScript language standard and is primarily used in the form of client-side JavaScript, implemented as part of a Web browser in order to provide enhanced user interfaces and dynamic websites. This enables programmatic access to computational objects within a host environment. JavaScript's use in applications outside Web pages ...
According to Wikipedia, the answer is: yes?
6:51 PM
@awoodland Yes, it is.

@Zypher: can you merge two rooms into one in stack over flow site

9:16 PM
I really need to learn jQuery.
Well...learn more of it. And understand it.
9:34 PM
As a test I flagged an answer in the sandbox as "not constructive". The mod actually deleted it. Hah.
@JeremyBanksʬʬʬ did the custom one ever show through 10K?
9:58 PM
One of my friends on Facebook just posted "Can I do anything right".
I really want to comment, "You could start by ending questions with questions marks."
=) Too bad I can't edit posts on there.
@awoodland I don't know, nobody happened to check again (after Popular Demand didn't see either flag four hours after flagging).
I am here now, if you want to try again.
@JeremyBanksʬʬʬ Oh, I actually did, but I didn't see anything at the time.
Assuming you were doing it on MSO, anyway.
Yeah, it was on MSO. Interesting.
@PopularDemand Sure! Just a sec.
10:09 PM
@PopularDemand Okay. I flagged /q/13 as custom "not constructive" and /q/16 as standard "not constructive" for comparison. (Flagging the same question twice last time was silly.)
I see 16 but not 13.
I see one on 16
Interesting, thanks.
Marc just popped in, perhaps a direct answer is available.
10:11 PM
Some custom flags show up in the 10k queue, but custom "not constructive" don't seem to. Can you confirm that they don't?
Marc's first mistake was not immediately running away.
We're testing for this question:
Q: Is typing out a canned flag reason equivalent to selecting it?

lunboksIf I type out a pre-existing flag reason in the it needs ♦ moderator attention → other field, does it behave as if I had cast that type of flag? For example: If I flag an answer and type out "not an answer" in the reason field, is it treated as a normal NAA flag (e.g., shown to 10k+ ...

no, it isn't
each template has an associated "what was this" marker, that we use for tracking
and also: the "does this suggest user-suspension" etc
but: it isn't a huge difference
no-one is going to upset
Yay for an official answer. Thanks Marc!
10:14 PM
it is "almost"
(gores off to see what shows in 10k flags)

@MarcGravell Post an answer in the above question and there's at least +60 in it for you. ;)
