Looks like they might actually make SO copy pasta keyboards
 
what is the threshold for the suggested edit queue to be full?
tried to edit something yesterday when it was at like 395 on SO and now it's 380 and still full
 
Depends on the site
 
huh that's weird, as of 2020 it's 500 but it's full at 380 meta.stackoverflow.com/a/396867/9986421
can't find anything about a change
 
@ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard It's way better than Spotify, believe me.
 
@JourneymanGeek he likes my joke! 🤣
I've been struggling the last few weeks... I follow Jeff but I think April Fools really led me to realize how many people still think Jeff is in charge here.
So it's weird when he get credit for things like April fools. Now, I'm sure he's also on the receiving end of a lot of complaints, too. And I have no clue whether there's anything he can do about it.
I did think it would be interesting to see how many people say things at him about SO that imply he's still here.

@Catija Oh, thats via the blog
 
Yeah. But the tweet is from Jeff.
 
Well - Jeff's kinda social-media-famous in the programming crowd
More so then Joel
So his tweets get seen
 
Sure. But he gets a ton of people saying random stuff... like, he tweeted about Postgres and someone asked if he was going to move SE to it.
 
Ah yeah
Y'all never really got a face-person after him :D
 
Shog was the closest.
 
5:25 AM
and not everyone keeps up on gossip
Shog was mostly internal facing tho
 
It's been longer without him than with...
 
It has but - quite a lot of it was as SO the 'company' - rather than "the person who happens to run the company"
(Not necessarily bad but its different, and people relate to people not companies :D )
 
Sure. I don't know we'd ever have someone else like that because so much of why he was visible was because he did everything.
Shog was "internal" but that was a ton by the time it got to him. Also, he doesn't like Twitter or fame.
 
You don't necessarily need to do everything.
(well, he did but ...)
 
I don't think anyone has a public presence that would put them in the same position as Jeff... particularly not someone who has the level of control.
 
5:33 AM
Nope
And in a bigger org that might not be a good thing. Bus factor and all that
 
Yeah. I think it's OK. That part isn't what bugs me. Mostly the mental frustration I would feel if I were on his side and getting all those comments all the time.
 
lol
True
 
If I didn't work here and it didn't seem like I was trying to push him out of that notoriety, I might gently "remind" people of the fact... but I figured he's probably used to it. Plus, if he's just now seeing about the joke, I wonder if he blocks SO mentions in general.
 
Or dosen't quite check up what's going on that actively
 
Yeah.
Anyway. Someone with that many followers surely has some tooling handling stuff and he probably doesn't even read them all.

All this twitter thing. I don't get it really
I do like to stalk around people's twitters every now and then when they list it on their SE profiles
Nice video you had up @Catija, with that easter bunny ;)
 
Stalks Luuklag on Twitter ...
 
user912062
heh
 
@rene I might have created one once, so it could be you find me
haha google tells me I did
 
What does it say? "First Tweet!'
 
nope
 
user912062
7:14 AM
Is user with spam in his profile is spam user?
 
user912062
 
@RocketNikita yeah they're spammers, but no need to delete them. As long as they don't post anything they won't get exposure, so no need to invest in deleting them.
 
user912062
@Luuklag ok
 
well I should stop googling myself now, not really productive
Fun to see that most images are SE screenshots though xd
 
user912062
heh
 
user912062
7:18 AM
ooh, another user promoting that service: meta.stackexchange.com/users/976872/…
 
user912062
 
yeah there are plenty
You could also search for Insurance on the users page
 
user912062
@Luu and they are created in one day
 
you get plenty of those
 
user912062
oh
 
7:20 AM
dentists
realestate
landscaping
all spammy profiles
dermatology
 
user912062
So, I shouldn’t report them, until they post spam?
 
yeah as a general rule only report posts not people
 
user912062
ok
 
mmmm the spammy profiles do get indexed by google
 
user912062
ooh
 
user912062
7:26 AM
ultimate user search query: "<text to search goes here>" site:stackexchange.com/users
 
for me just adding stackexchange brought it to the frontpage
 
user912062
oh
 
user912062
ahh, doesn’t work, searches only for titles
 
7:42 AM
Users table is small enough in SEDE to do a naive LIKE: data.stackexchange.com/meta.stackexchange/query/1395580
 
user912062
8:37 AM
@rene didn’t think of using SEDE
 
I always do. It is my main nightmare.

Today a friend sent me a link to a youtube channel, claiming they had some old fan-made Ultima songs that were lost long ago.
And once again I hoped....
Nope, it is the same channel I already knew about.
Which has two of the songs... but miss the third one - the one I was looking for.
 
@SPArcheon :( that sinking feeling
 
to be fair, I don't care about the sung version - the artist voice is average but not something I would lose sleep for. The thing is that the words were fan made and while I remember most of the song, one line I am not sure of.
They made three Ultima songs as far as I know.
Stones, sung with the original lyrics
A sung version of the Fellowship theme from Ultima 7
and a sung cover of the Ultima 6 main theme.
the Ultima 6 theme - I Hear You Crying, but most call it "Character Creation" - is the one I am looking for
And the one that got lost.

@Catija no, wait, that is BESW from the Rpg chat board. Shog can technically fail, but usually the few witness are burinated afterward, so there is no written record :P
 
(really, jokes aside you would had to try someday. That user is kinda scary with the speed they can find a relevant article for anything you could ask. It is not a secret that we believe he is a Google answering bot)

Anyone knows what was going on with that finally rename sites question? Just a troll? Seeing they are suspended for 10 years before being nuked network wide.

So what's the historical significance of "happy hour" here?
 
10:43 PM
It was just a time to chill and chat. But the last few years it's mostly been a time for a moment of silence.
