Starburst Minis? Who thought this was a good idea?
> Our polling analysis shows that the single thing people love most about our Starburst product is unwrapping each and every one. So let's make them smaller so they have to unwrap even more in order to enjoy the same amount of Starburst.
 
@animuson You eat strabursts? What even are those?
 
I do not. I just saw a commercial for them on TV.
 
I think you mistyped @animuson. Strabursts != starbursts. :P
 
You haven't heard of the straws that are bursting with juiciness? You put them in your soda to give it that extra kick.
 
That sounds terribly amazing.
@animuson Was my comment auto-deleted here?
 
1:25 AM
It was. Interesting.
 
O..kay... that wasn't even the same site I was linking to. :P
 
@Qantas94Heavy: yeah, reputation makes you a Chuck Norris.
@JoshCrozier: this is the one you want to experiment with deleting?
 
done
but I cannot cast a delete vote; I literally used up the last a few minutes ago.
 
Wow.. I can't even vote to delete it
 
1:41 AM
any reason why I saw 549 answers for a few days, and it came back to 550 again? Someone deleted a question and then it got undeleted where I had zero scores, literally?
 
That sounds plausible.
 
So the auto-login / refresh page when changing sites use to work great... but for the last week or so it's really sucked. Sometimes it would work and others not at all. And then it would work for going from SO to Meta, but not from SO/Meta to CodeReview or other sites. Then just now, it didn't work from SO to Meta, but it worked from Meta to CodeReview...

A: Disappearing image views after package name change in Android Java

user3209415I think that you have a problem out there! I've never heard about problem like this. IMO it about compilation step. Looking for solution is very good idea. In my opition you should try to find a right solution to fix it. Best way to do this is look for answer here in stackoverflow.com.

People are so helpful sometimes

A: Use same HTML tags within two separate div containers

David Gyeh, use a loop. var myDivs = new Array(); myDivs[0] = '#div1'; myDivs[1] = '#div2'; //etc for(var i=0; i < myDivs.length; i++) { $("#" + myDivs[1] + '.appendStuff').append(stuff); } That way it'll go through your list of divs and append what it needs to until it runs out of divs. Though...

Nevermind, the question was deleted

@hichris123 I don't know why @Doorknob was in Aspen. But if I ever went there, I would rent a moped/scooter thingy and drive the same route as Lloyd and Harry.
They just don't make good movies like that anymore :(
 
@hi I live in Colorado! That's insulting! :p
 
I've never been to Aspen, but I think Aspen is more like LA then Colorado
 
@LowerClassOverflowian darn it, I forgot to do that :(
 
@Doorknob You at least got your tongue stuck to a frozen pole though, right?
 
2:38 AM
Hahaha Aspen is where you go when you have money to blow.
 
@animuson I heard Charlie Sheen has blown more than just money there
 
We won a trip there a long time ago. Everything was mega-expensive. The hotel had very nice towels though.
 
@LowerClassOverflowian Darn! I forgot that, too! I still have one day. :P
@animuson The stuff at the hotel where I was staying (called "Inn at Aspen," what a creative name) wasn't that expensive.
 
@animuson and you still use them till this day :)
 
@BlueIce Sorry. :P
 
2:40 AM
Seriously, "Inn at Aspen"? Did the people on their creative team just all quit?
 
Was there also a Tavern at the Aspen?
 
In fact, there was! I ate at a restaurant called something's Tavern. :P
(I didn't see any actual taverns though)

Q: Sockpuppet admission

Adam DavisI figure it's time to let the cat out of the bag before someone else goes public with it, and it's just too hard living a lie. Jon Skeet is my sockpuppet account. Would a moderator please combine that account into my normal account for me? Thanks!

 
@Doorknob It's best to stay away from any place with the name "tavern" in it
 
Lol
It was just a normal restaurant with Tavern in its name
 
2:45 AM
@Lower I went to a "Tavern on the Green" in NYC for a wedding. It was fancy :)

@Lo I especially like how they put a little copyright at the end of the text.
 
@BlueIce I'll delete mine then in 2 minutes : ) Yea, that was nice.
 
Aaaaand it's gone...
 
@LowerClassOverflowian Sure, however downvoting it gets it off the front page faster, so less people flag it. Matters more on lower traffic sites, though.
Any 2k meta users willing to do an edit for me?
 
@hichris123 I don't want to risk it.
 
@LowerClassOverflowian Please? Just change the link to the other question in this question to use HTTP instead of HTTPS.
This link: https://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/216039/my-avatar-changed-i-didnt-chang‌​e-it
 
3:05 AM
@hichris123 Why? That seems too minor. I guess I don't understand why it should be http instead.
 
@LowerClassOverflowian Possible bug. That question should be appearing in the "Linked Questions" sidebar thingy. Guess what? It's not. I dunno why; maybe that's it.
 
@hichris123 ok , did
 
Yeah, it showed up there now. Huh.

@Braiam Yes, SO and meta
 
@Doorknob ^
 
would you protect a Q even if there isn't any any deleted answer but knowing that it will attract lots of comments and stuff?
 
(and if you're referring to the protect priv, I have 3.5k on CG)
 
@Braiam Yea, I have multiple times.
 
@Braiam Yes. If there were enough deleted answers, the Community protect would automatically activate. User protection is there for "edge cases"
And it's protection, i.e. protecting the post from bad things :P

I don't know about other tags, but it happens time and time again for Unity questions. Either it's "Go ask on the Unity forums" or "Go ask on Gamedev SE"

Hmmm, that retag action of me caused a lot of disturbance. Even Pëkka felt he needed to leave a comment. I didn't consider any of the comments to be rude but he did for some reason...
 
And you're only seeing the second version of it @rene :D
 
Oh?
 
eating a sausage & cheese sandwich. We have enough meat already, we don't need to buy ham.
 
Let's just say it was initially a bit more harsh than that, so I left a comment @rene.
 
Ah, a lot of emotions....not needed IMHO.
Kyle has a point somewhere
 
10:08 AM
That you could have left a clear edit comment? Sure. But he made that point rather ... awkwardly.
 
My 10K rep doesn't invite to leave a comment because I use the edit tags functionality. I only edit the whole question if I see things that needs to be improved.

If you can rely on google translate you could have a look at this review or this. For hardware reviews I trust Tweakers.Net as they have a good community.

@Bart Google translate hires me for their dutch to english translations, so that is spot on.
 
.... I'm starting to doubt your fluency in Dutch @rene
 
I'm not going to comment on that....
 
does it need an edit as well?
or do we wait for it being nuked?
 
Myeah, it's not going anywhere. Editing it would be pointless I guess.
 
yes, it need edit

If you only answer once a month that can take some time ;-)
 
Unfortunately, questions I see are always [1] duplicates, [2] outside my expertise, [3] too broad, or [4] illegible.
 
@devnull just downclose them as usual
if he posts more of them, the q-ban should take effect soon
 
Answer only link stackoverflow.com/a/17289750/1741671 should I flag ?
 
Meh, if it's a real dupe, just vote to close it. Don't think a mod is going to do much against an accepted answers with 7 upvotes.
 
@rene went over your ordeal, not a pleasant experience! That's why I usually stay away from mass retagging unless it's an obvious mistake or I have enough knowledge in the relevant tags to know 110% it's correct to rename.
Always felt bit uneasy when seeing "Please retag" followed, usually, by quick response, but unlike that guy it doesn't bother me that much.
 
Oh what is happening today , android tag : stackoverflow.com/questions/22590181/…
everyone need a code, "give me code"
 
11:24 AM
@ShadowWizard yeah, I feel I've could have done better. For sure I didn't want to escalate it that much. I still feel Kyle's has a point and I'm debating with myself if I should post a question about it to get a better consensus for retag requests.
 
brb
 
@rene Nah, shit happens. The retag was fair enough. I've had people go ballistic over me changing their i to I. It's not worth it to spend too much time on this.
 
Have a look at this one were I did some effort to get a response from a commiter on that project (I invited him to a chatroom to bring the question to his attention).
 
Looks good. Then again, having input from the particular community doesn't always guarantee a clean effort

@Braiam Thanks.
@Braiam That form isn't working for me. I seem to have one account on meta, and one one main, but the "merge user profiles" form you pointed me to insists on being given two URLs both on meta.
It pops up a red message that says “your second profile link should be of the form meta.stackoverflow.com/users/<id>/<display-name>;”.
 
@MarkDominus what profiles we are talking about? stackoverflow.com/users/1277934 and meta.stackoverflow.com/users/191408/mark-dominus are already linked
 
I thought they weren't because (1) the names don't match, (2) meta.stackoverflow.com/users/191408/mark-dominus has no “main user” links, and (3) my rep on main is not being automatically synced to meta as it is supposed to be.
 
@MarkDominus mSO is special. Rep doesn't sync from main to meta.
 
Okay, thanks.

You basically cross-posted from Stackoverflow... don't do that... — rene 27 secs ago
 
@MarkDominus that account is linked with several already on SO, SU, Math, etc. what are you trying to do?
 
6:24 PM
@Braiam: He want's to update the global stackexchange.com profile, but not by e.g. clicking "Save And Copy Profile To All Stack Exchange Accounts" on some site as that would also update the math account – which he wants to keep as is.
Or put another way: Edit/update the stackexchange.com profile/info without touching the about me etc. on e.g. math.
I'm not sure: but one could perhaps: 1. Save the math account info in some text-file. 2. Update with information one want on stackexchange.com profile site. 3. Copy to all 4. Restore math account and only save locally.
 
@MarkDominus Edit your oldest profile.
 
Not sure which profile stackexchange.com fetches information from. Oldest perhaps?
 
It's the oldest profile
 
Is there some way to change that perhaps? (Without deleting oldest :P)

Q: Should Spam posts be edited?

Mad ScientistI noticed that the posts of the recent spam surge on AskUbuntu were all edited by community members into something like EDITED - REMOVED SPAM ANSWER or similar. While I understand why the users have done this and I too don't want to leave the spam content visible for longer than absolutely...

 
:-D
 
Hmm. OK. That makes sense.
My thought was however that usually one would not even check out if the link is to a malicious site or some Rotten clone.
But if they vanishes quickly enough then yes, no edit. I'll remember that.
 
@TimWolla sigh It got approved. I already rolled it back.
