@nitsua60 No problem. You were pretty specific on the search terms ;)
(If I see users do that, and I can't find anything for them on MSE, first place I check is MSO. 9 times out of 10, that's all that's needed)

@rene I would not object to having that sort of message reported to metasmoke
(based on the title; I can no longer see the body)
 
> Where can I get a good skilled web developer (Not a freelancer) skills Required- HTML5 CSS Jquery javascript Laravel Reactjs
 
hmm, not a lot of value for metasmoke if they didn't post any contact details etc
 
Nah, just a lost HR manager

Hello
 
Lame joke of the day.
Will @nitsua60 someday finally evolve into Dubwool or has they been holding an everstone all the time?
 
Why would you dub wool?
 
1:32 PM
@Glorfindel since you fixed the broken link, could you update the dupe closure to use the new post notice as well? meta.stackexchange.com/questions/19163/…
Perhaps something you can make your script aware off?
 
@Luuklag that's a nice idea :)

While Charcoal could always do with more volunteers please note that spam is usually hit in less than 10 minutes. That's not as good as we'd like but in reality it gets very few views and the links are usually not clickable (unless they have enough reputation). 10 minutes isn't "a lot longer" but less than 1/2 a minute (like we usually do here at MSE) is a reasonable goal:
 
Time is in seconds I take @Rob? What is on the X-axis, and what is the dotted line?
 
when one becomes a mod, does charcoal no longer use that person's flags?
given that they're now binding and unlimited
(on that site)
 
Correct
 
8:46 PM
so, effectively, as more mods on a given site are elected, from a group of people who generally use charcoal, more people are needed to be added back into the pool, over time
 
Rob
Or a moderator can, and often does, simply go to the site and deal with the matter themselves.
Yes, Glo is out of a few.

woohoo debugging code of which another dev tried to build their version of code at 10 PM, couldnt have a better start to the weekend...
 
Hey our head programmer submitted a PR that was based upon a commit from early 2020 and had none of the changes that his PR title described
So I'm kinda feeling the same way you are right now
 
Thats also cool.
The thing with my stuff is that A. I'm not a dev, I wrote all this in excel's VBA and B. I was the only one capable of making/reading VBA so there literally was no-one who ever before checked my work.
So all in all I'm kinda relieved they only found 3 bugs so far, which were all pretty minor. Just having too many loops, and redirects in the code is the problem. Having a bit more of a structured code instead of this spaghetti would have helped tremendously I guess.
 
the last dev we had refused to work in the language most of my code was written in, so it was never reviewed
 
@KevinB also cool. The problem is that as a single dev you just get blindsighted at a certain point. You just take the outcome you get (I build a model predicting certain emissions) for granted, as there is no way to check the model correctness.
 
somewhat humbling to review code that i wrote 10-13 years ago
it's really easy now to recognize the mistakes i made back then, but there's always the now where i can't necessarily recognize the mistakes i make today
 
9:24 PM
yeah, you need that "distance" from your work to be able to spot things like that
 
now days i write my code in a way that it is very likely to throw an error, if i do anything out of spec
but that also means that it's more likely to throw an error, where as in the past, it'd generally just keep on rolling on even if something went haywire
 
@KevinB I sanitised my inputs into obblivion to avoid any errors, so there literally is 0 chance for any sane person to get my code to error out. Unless they start entering negative application rates or something rediculous
 
9:53 PM
good thing though is, with it being more likely to throw an error, I'm far more likely to find the problems in testing than when things just kinda worked
back then, i had other people who could test my code
but, admittedly, they weren't really programmers and had no more experience than i did at the time
the blind leading the blind, kind of thing'
 
10:06 PM
@KevinB and one eye is king xD
 
@SPArcheon I think my username is the only part of that message I grok XD
 
10:51 PM

@Luuklag Yes, days, today; and I presume that the remainder is the predicted trend, couldn't find the code that makes the graph but it's on GitHub somewhere.
 
Rob
11:41 PM
@Luuklag Gee, that was hard to find; you're buying the next three rounds: github.com/Charcoal-SE/metasmoke/blob/master/app/controllers/…
