/cc @terdon ^
Never too late...
Half face burned, no eyebrows.
(I saw him on TV last night and vividly remembered I talked about him here in the past)
 
....... Wow. Elephants never forget XD
 
He told about his personal life a lot, it's interesting.
(related to holocaust)
@Tink I have no trunk, hence I'm not elephant. :D
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard Debatable.
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard I could ask for a link, but I would probably not understand a word of it anyways.
 
2:21 PM
@MetaAndrewT. Umm... I am the OP. Just a little addition to that discussion.
in SO Close Vote Reviewers on Stack Overflow Chat, 5 mins ago, by d4rk4ng31
@VLAZ No, the question for sure cannot be deleted till 24 hours after the bounty has expired, following which, you can delete it
in SO Close Vote Reviewers on Stack Overflow Chat, 5 mins ago, by d4rk4ng31
The bug seems to be that, once the question can be deleted (and gets deleted), and if the bounty is not awarded, the bounty is returned to the owner
i.e., deleting in grace period is not allowed
in SO Close Vote Reviewers on Stack Overflow Chat, 4 mins ago, by d4rk4ng31
@VLAZ no, it isn't. Believe me, I tried 😂😂
 
well, perhaps because I have a mod power that I can delete active-bountied questions directly ...
 
@MetaAndrewT. Ah! That explains it. Maybe next time, someone not a mod but a high rep user should try :)
 
:grinning:
we gotta allow discord default emotes!
 
MS is going to buy Discord.
 
2:27 PM
@VLAZ noooooooo
 
So, just use the Windows emojis.
 
Bye bye Discord
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard lol
 
Buy buy discord.
 
:angryping:
 
2:27 PM
Never really liked Discord to be honest, too... different, for me.
 
Although, they definitely will add some good features
 
Can't find my way in the channels.
 
@VLAZ lol
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard alt and left/right arrow keys?
 
@d4rk4ng31 using it only on phone.
 
@VLAZ Eh, that was reported to be a testing the water move, since they were going public
 
2:28 PM
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard you poor dear! I don't even remember the last time I had an app on my phone!
 
@d4rk4ng31 facebook?
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard fb.com on chrome
 
@Braiam Yeah, I tracked down an article and it was just rumours.
Oops.
 
or edge
 
So, carry on people. Doom averted. For now.
 
2:29 PM
@d4rk4ng31 candy crush?
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard The only game I play is Sudoku
 
@d4rk4ng31 paypal?
 
The phone app?
 
No game has been able to "capture" my attention for more than 2 hours!
 
2:30 PM
:grin:
 
Actually same here. No social apps, prefer using browser.
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard no net-banking. The whole freaking family is against it!
 
Only apps are for chats, and one game.
And Line app is actually good.
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard Just 2 apps: whatsapp and telegram
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard I've got about 4 of them.
 
2:31 PM
Line is like WhatsApp but 1) Not owned by the Dark Side, and 2) Got stickers.
 
Because I have a phone but for some reason that's not enough to contact some people.
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard oh! and YouTube music for listening to my favorite tunes
 
@VLAZ four games?
 
Sorry, four chat apps.
 
@d4rk4ng31 nice
@VLAZ WhatsApp, Telegram, ?, ?
 
2:32 PM
More than four games. I play around four times a year.
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard I'm not sure which app was the one that got stickers first, but most (excluding Signal) do have some sort of that.
 
Viber, Hangouts, Messenger Lite, Skype
 
@Braiam well in Line they have whole Sticker Shop, it's basic part of the app.
People buy sticker packs for like $5, that's how the app makes money.
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard Well, being the first to monetize it doesn't mean they are the first implementation
 
@Braiam yeah, that's correct.
@d4rk4ng31 eww, YouTube! lol
 
2:34 PM
The whole idea of digital stickers is honestly so wrong. Real life ones are much better!
 
I used Google Play for years, they killed it and "moved" to YouTube music.
Luckily, found a better app, Pulsar.
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard I used Google Music, too. When they made the switch, I went over to Spotify.
 
@Tinkeringbell It was my pet peeve not downloading images from chat and only watching them on their desktop version. Now I don't have that :(
My entire history was a couple of MiB of data. Now it's ~100MiB. Stickers being most of it.
 
@VLAZ tried it, but it's too different from what I was used to. Pulsar is exactly the same.
Showing all music files you have on the phone by default and let you play them. That's all.
 
@Braiam Yeah, things like that eat data...
 
2:37 PM
Better because it remember where I stopped even when I close it, unlike Google which was being reset each time.
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard I like the whole streaming aspect, since I don't want to have the music present. I listen on my work computer and prefer to avoid having non-work related files.
 
@VLAZ opposite here, lol. Using it only on my phone, where I have terrible connection most of the time, so streaming isn't even an option.
No music on my work computer.
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard Eh, I rarely listen to music on my phone. I listen to podcasts and those are downloaded in advance.
 
At home I had music in the past, but after switching to new computer a while ago, didn't copy music files from backup.
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard Uh, actually, a Martin in chem chat asked for me to change it because people kept pinging him
 
2:39 PM
@M.A.R. LOL
Poor soul.
Wait, the @Martin we have here??
 
He's German, they're not really poor
 
No I doubt it's him
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard Whoa are you saying poor people exist elsewhere in the world!
 
2:40 PM
@M.A.R. we're all poor in some level
 
@VLAZ I miss that
I'm currently using a subsonic client with a LMS backend I host at home
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard No I'm perfectly rich
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard Some people can't afford bread. Others a helicopter.
 
Lots of fat
 
2:41 PM
@VLAZ oh, fair point. I just listen to my playlist.
 
google gives me trust issues with things I don't run myself :D
 
@M.A.R. me too! Lots of [you know what, something @Mith doesn't like me talking about]. :D
 
Is it a liquid
 
@Aibobot I'm planning on making my own "music streaming" from home. Uh, eventually. It's on the back burner.
 
@VLAZ exactly! Poor souls. Give them all helicopters. :D
 
2:43 PM
Nom
 
Crunchy
 
@VLAZ LMS is nice if you run debian 10 or don't mind running docker containers
 
@M.A.R. what did you eat?
 
Lame Monster Series?
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard helicopters for the poor
 
2:43 PM
Lightweight Music Server
 
If children in Africa can't have them, no one can!
 
@M.A.R. too much metal
 
@JourneymanGeek That's a disco
 
@JourneymanGeek Yeah...I guess this is the thing. The actual thing on the back burner is making a home server. The music streaming would be part of it. Only, I can't figure out what else to do with it. So I've not really taken much steps to set one up.
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard I think they don't care for pop or country music much
 
2:45 PM
@M.A.R. too heavy then.
 
@VLAZ ah uh
I kinda have 2
 
@JourneymanGeek What kinda noise is that
 
Need to go to super market, I stopped making online deliveries after they switched my order with somebody else. That was totally the last straw.
Cya!
 
I'm imagining Hayden Christensen leaping to attack even when Obi-wan had the high ground
 
Oh @Luuklag how did the meeting go? Reached some final conclusions in the storm?
Hope no brains were damaged!
 
2:46 PM
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard Don't die!
 
@VLAZ I have my own linux based home router + one more that runs a GUI install of ubuntu for my torrent client and other things
 
@Tinkeringbell only risk is shelf falling on my head, I'll do my best to stay off shelves then. :P
Oh, and buying something my wife didn't mean me to buy, but that's a death with delay.
 
@JourneymanGeek I've got an old RaspberriPi kicking around. But no storage to go with it. I can probably turn it into a seedbox and NAS for home.
 
@VLAZ most of my home servers end up with storage hanging off it
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard Still better not to do that then ;)
 
2:53 PM
@JourneymanGeek I should probably plan out a server "room". I've a new apartment (yay). Still needs basically all of the inside being done. I didn't think of including some sort of server location thing. So I can get power and internet to there.
 
@VLAZ Don't servers generate quite some heat? Then the best place for the server room is the room where you spend most of your time: Save on heating costs :D
 
Heh, I'm in a room with two computers right now. Some days I can go with the heating off and it's 18-ish degrees. Rest of the apartment might be 15-16.
 
quite the opposite here
 
@VLAZ I'm curious what it'll be like in my new apartment in a few months. It's supposed to be a very well isolated on (newly built). I actually worry more about keeping heat out than keeping it in XD
 
@Tinkeringbell Congrats! Hopefully you have air conditioning.
I can't stand heat.
20 degrees is enough for me.
21 and above and I might start sweating.
 
2:58 PM
for network closets/rooms here, AC is a requriement
 
Summer is killing me.
 
at home it's best to not have it all in one room
 
@VLAZ Nope, no air conditioning built in, and also not planning on getting one initially. (If keeping heat out really is impossible, I'll have to cave on that point). A air/water heat pump, so I can use it for cooling a bit in summer too though.
Mostly planning things like curtains and sun screens :)
 
Just get a bunch of those reflective screens people put on windshields. Cover all your windows with those :P
 
The outer walls should be fine, well isolated. Double glass, so if I can screen that both out- and inside that should keep a lot out already. My biggest worry is the inner walls, and since I have neighbors on both sides + on top of me, there could technically be a lot of heat trapped in those and leak to mine.
Especially during heat wave periods.
 
3:02 PM
Fill the walls with ice!
 
Good idea! :D
 
My new apartment is the one with built in aircon
 
3:18 PM
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard bring some beer.
 
3:40 PM
@JourneymanGeek Different climate :P Over here, sunscreens and curtains will basically capture everything except the 3-4 weeks of heatwave and tropical nights each year :P
 
In my country there are only two seasons: summer and hell.
 
Rob
It's not obvious where the dupe is, but I recall the "too long user name and long tag overflow the banner" bug somewhere; still not fixed:
 
I found the mobile user
 
Rob
There's a few million, which one did you find?
It doesn't have to be like that: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/362973/…
The tag could appear on the next line.
 
@rene too late, only mango juice.
 
3:59 PM
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard I'm sure you can ferment it into alcohol.
 
^
Moonshine! Maybe ask Shog9 for steps ...
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard well yeah we got the others to agree to our points. Heard nothing really new. But thats probably also one of the reasons they awarded us the contract ;)
@Tinkeringbell I have a relatively "new" house as well. '16 I think. Once its hot outside for a few weeks its hot inside as well. Then it takes ages to loose the heat again.
Anyone knows what the current url is for the blacklist page, as used in this Q?

Q: How do tag blocklists work?

Kevin VermeerI've just discovered the tag-block-request questions on this meta, and wondered how and when this feature is used. For example, I just discovered that we had a code tag (link) on Electrical Engineering, which was variously used for source code, binary codes, color codes, and official standards. ...

Seeing it used as dupe target I decided to update the terminology
 
4:17 PM
@Luuklag The url changed to blocklist too it seems: meta.stackexchange.com/admin/blacklist gives me a 404, while meta.stackexchange.com/admin/blocklist works ;).
 
That answer is really old, anyway... I'm pretty sure there's a better one somewhere?
24
Q: How should we make requests to block tags?

doppelgreenerA Stack Exchange site I use has identified a tag that should be blocked, discussed it on Meta and come to an agreement that it should go (our request is here). We and the site moderators understand that only SE staff can mark a tag as blocked. What we're not clear on, though, is how they expect u...

 
@Tinkeringbell thx, updated it
@Catija yeah, but it's also a bit of an off-topic question by itself
We can't know why mods on site X don't do Y.
But closing as a dupe is fine. Your target definetly has a better answer.
 
4:52 PM
@VLAZ success!
 
You work fast.
 
@Luuklag hehe. Congrats then, I guess? :D
 
5:49 PM
Do we need this ancient duplicate? I was gonna retag it to remove the multiple tag per its burninate request but I figure deletion might be a better way to go here, especially given that we'd also need to fix the old duplicate post notice, which would require a mod or gold feature-request badge wielder.
 
@Spevacus done
 
Aw thanks :)
 
6:33 PM
hmm... my bookmarks tab has a 4 on it, but i only have one bookmarked question
 
Is that potentially how many things have happened to that question since you last viewed it?
 
@user400654 That's because that's some kind of 'new activity' on your bookmarked questions indicator, not a number of how many you have.
 
which... is also odd,a s it's had no activity in days, and 've visited it today
 
Could you show us what question it was? Maybe it has deleted stuff?
 
Here on MSE?
 
6:36 PM
grr
browser isn't letting me post stuff again
 
Hm. You technically have two bookmarks. One of them is a deleted post.
Interesting that I can see deleted bookmarked questions on other peoples' profiles btw
 
so specifically
really?i don't see any deleted bookmarks in my own profile
which site
 
Probably needs 10k. Here on MSE.
 
ah, yeah i don't have 10k on mse
steadily dropping
 
You like downvoting answers.
 
6:38 PM
there's a lot of garbage answers
 
Fair enough
 
but yea there's some extension or something causing me to intermittantly not be able to post https links it seems
 
 
1 hour later…
7:55 PM
@Tinkeringbell I have proof that it was broken at least in 2016.

Q: Make it possible to prevent voting on time-limited questions in meta without a historical lock

CatijaThis may be a low use-case request and there may be a better way to manage it than this request but I'd like to see what the possibilities are to make it possible to avoid using the "historical lock" option with its default text on questions that aren't actually bad questions but that are designe...

Bullet point #2
 
@Catija Hey, you don't need proof to convince me it never worked :P
 
It feels super self-serving to status-review that, though. :P
 
Right now, you're going to need proof to convince me it ever worked XD
 
HAHA
I will blame Shog.
He should have caught that it was broken when he answered my question.
 
@Catija I think you're better off status-reviewing either the one recently posted, or the bug report from Sonic? As those are actually reports of the thing not working, instead of a sideways remark in a different feature request?
 
7:58 PM
He's supposed to know all the things. I'm heartbroken to learn that he's fallible.

No, I still like the FR and want to build it. What Code Golf is doing is... not really what a historical lock is for. :P
1
A: best-of tag not showing the "Cast your vote for" posts

CatijaHistorical locked intentionally do not show up in tag searches. From the Meta Stack Exchange FAQ: Additionally, on main (non-meta) sites, historically locked questions are omitted from normal question lists (those on the home page, /questions, and the various per-tag lists), but can still be fou...

 
@Catija True, true... But it's an old feature-request, and I don't think it fits any of the buckets in that post that lists what people can flag for status-reviewing. So you'll have to wait too :P
 
:sigh:
(this is a total joke so don't y'all quote me on it anywhere) Stupid buckets!
 
Oh come on. I bet you had forgotten about it until now anyways :P
 
No. It's one of my favorite FRs.
I think about it every Winterbash.
 
Okay... but that means you don't think about it in April, which is sort-of the same as 'forgotten' XD
(no one saw that)
 
8:02 PM
HAHAHA I totally did and thought it was correct.
I didn't even notice it was wrong.
 
Ohhhh... Could've just left it then XD
Perhaps confuse a few others too.
 
You can always change it back.
 
Nah. This is more fun, now no one knows what we're talking about (except a few possibly nosy ROs or other diamonded chat users)
I'll let people guess what was wrong with that message instead.
Funniest one gets a star ;)
 
...hate to break it to you, but anyone can see message revision history for undeleted messages...
 
Well then. Time for bed.
That's two errors within 10 minutes XD
 
8:08 PM
:D
 
8:49 PM
As a note, @SonictheCuriouserHedgehog - everything in your comment is already in the comments, including the link to your post.
 
That was an auto-dupe comment that I edited. It was mostly aimed at close voters/reviewers so they knew why I was voting. But you're right, I didn't notice that Tinkeringbell had posted the same link, which is why added your @reply at the end.
 
Ah
