@bjb568 ^ does the above bear resemblance to your spam which I can't see anymore?
1:43 AM
The above is gone now anyway.
2:07 AM
I'm not sure how that guy answered the question above ^ .. it looks like he answered in python? but there is no mention of what programming language in the question, not that it matters for an algorithm, but thats why I cv'd as off topic. Thoughts?

@animuson and that thread which overturned your decision needed to be locked because..?
Q: Tag name poll: [swift], [apple-swift], or [swift-language]?

Jeremy BanksWe recently had a discussion about the appropriate tag to use for the Swift programming language. Swift is Apple's successor to Objective-C, which is currently the 16th most popular tag on Stack Overflow. The tag it ended up with (due to unilateral moderator action, not community consensus) is sw...

(Not that there's any particular need for the thread to remain active, but locking seems like a peculiar choice.)
Are any questions which question your decisions "not considered good, on-topic questions for this site"?
God, I can't even flag to dispute it.
3:24 AM
@bjb568 Yeah, I hadn't realized that that was a consequence of locking.
Seems like a strange behaviour.
Only some locks do that.
The retagging UI is still showing up. I wonder if it actually works.
Let's test it.
3:29 AM
That warrants a bug report, I think.
@JeremyBanks A poll like that was never a good, on-topic question, but I left it alone so the community could vote. Now that it's taken care of, the question is useless. If someone else has a problem with it, they can start their own question because nothing constructive would come out of anything else being posted on that one.
I guess it does make sense to lock the votes.
But why comments, edits, and flags?
@bjb568 because you don't have more granular locking (yet?)
What comments, edits, or flags would need to be made on that?
@animuson I think we should also hold a poll on that position.
3:34 AM
@JanDvorak …So just record the votes and don't lock?
@animuson Discussion and whatever.
@animuson META!!!
Why would closing be inappropriate?
Comments are not the place for extended discussion.
@animuson META!!!
@animuson I wonder how you have managed to acquire so much meta rep while never observing the most common behaviour on meta sites.
@JeremyBanks that's a loaded question
3:43 AM
@JanDvorak I don't think it's a question.
It's an inner question
I suppose there was an implied rhetorical question, although I'm not sure whether rhetorical questions should be considered questions. I should probably do some reading on linguistic philosophy.
@bjb568 gone
Yeah, but great.
3:53 AM
perhaps, but not an answer
There should be a delete state where the question is gone for everyone except the OP who sees a rude message like that!
@bjb568 you are free to post a feature request ;-)
4:33 AM
5:45 AM
Q: Are poll-style questions ever acceptable on meta sites?

Jeremy BanksOn proper Stack Exchange sites, poll-style "questions" are not considered acceptable. They typically would serve only to measure users' opinions in aggregate, which is not constructive. However, meta sites are a bit different, as determining users' opinions is one of their purposes. The scores o...

@animuson I invite you to express your opinion as an answer to this question.

@JanDvorak @DroidDev same too you!
Any extra advice for this OP: stackoverflow.com/questions/24176970/…
@rene An upvote?!
what would be appropriate flag reason, should I go for duplicate?
@DroidDev Whatever. It'll be deleted.
I voted too broad
but close as the dup is also fine

That is something :-)
It feels so rewarding to have three of my posts at the top of the starboard.
Now for port…

7:10 AM
@JanDvorak I'm again struggling with flag type for it, will too-broad go fine? because, I think that duplicate won't work, because other question has no answer.
@bjb568 I didn't know we have standards for these also. :O
@DroidDev Some of them have variants, but that's what I've seen used the most.
@bjb568 like for :)
Oh yeah, that makes more sense.
@DroidDev that would be deletion vote, wouldn't it?
Then there are grannies with
@JanDvorak Deletion = del. Down is shorter, so gets the one-letter.
And used more.
7:14 AM
btw, who starred that question?
@DroidDev OP, maybe?
Somebody who missed the crap button?
I never knew I can star my own question. :O
What would that be for???

@bjb568 dat comment
@DroidDev Probably by Final Contest to delete it when he gets to it...
@rene he is always busy with site clean-up. Btw, he is not here, I think he might have a bot running for that purpose.
I agree with you @Mustafasabir . But some self claimed technically strong old people will try to act smart.Instead of helping, they overact.(eventhough they don't know answer to the question) — user3732886 2 mins ago
I'm not offended easily....
I am self claimed technically strong but not old(for now) ;)
7:24 AM
@DroidDev Yeah, just wait... ;-)
How much longer? Are we there yet?
@rene lol, I guess that wait would extend to 25 years ;-)
or that depends, how you define old :)

"Please do not use this feature for anything other than informing moderators of serious issues that require their attention." Does it count as serious?

@rene yay :D Well played good sir.
Guys, you know the stars will be cleared so what's the point? You just upset the team.
Please give "Oh you absolute jock strap" another star to balance it.
Fun is the enjoyment of pleasure, particularly in leisure activities. Fun is an experience - short-term, often unexpected, informal, not cerebral and generally purposeless. It is an enjoyable distraction, diverting the mind and body from any serious task or contributing an extra dimension to it. Although particularly associated with recreation and play, fun may be encountered during work, social functions, and even seemingly mundane activities of daily living. It may often have little to no logical basis, and opinions on whether or not an activity is fun may differ. The distinction betwe...
A rerun or repeat is a rebroadcast of an episode of a radio or television program. There are two types of reruns – those that occur during a hiatus, and those that occur when a program is syndicated. Reruns can also be, as the case with more popular shows, when a show is aired outside of its timeslot (for example, in the afternoon). In the United Kingdom, the word "repeat" refers only to a single episode; "rerun" or "rerunning" is the preferred term for an entire series/season. "Repeat" is also used to refer to programs shown less than a week after the original broadcast, before the next...
Reruns are so boring...

Q: Just rolled over to 100K and my links to Q's and A's went to zero?

BondedDustIs this a bug or a feature? Perhaps trying to give me a Zen moment? http://meta.stackoverflow.com/users/1855677/bondeddust

@SPArchaeologist Did I seriously just watch that?
> I got 100k rep, look at me
^ More parading, less of… boring comments.
@bjb568 do I need to link you to another full song or will the quote "but lately I've been thinking for a reason I should hide FIM as to mention it was painfull when it feels so good inside" suffice? :P
@SPArchaeologist More song!

It's dead and deleted, yet still exists.
So it's a zombie :D
and the "Edit tag wiki" button doesn't work either due to this.
Ugh, even I can't edit it, or do anything else to it, as far as I can tell. — Tim Post ♦ 2 mins ago
@TimPost you here maybe? :)
@ShadowWizard The "edit" link you posted just gives me "This post is deleted and cannot be edited."
Anyway, Goodnight, ponies. (commas are confusing)
@Stijn you need 10k (mayby 20k since it's tag wiki) to edit it.
8:13 AM
@bjb568 goodnight pony!
@ShadowWizard Sure?
Looks like a blob of code without any direction where the OP is stuck?
@rene he added the code, he added what he wants... "unclear what you ask" doesn't fit anymore.
@rene yeah, classic.

How long does it take for a question to hit the reopen queue?
@TimStone the links to your profile pages on elections.stackexchange.com are dead - "This page was put together by Yi Jiang and Tim Stone."
@Bart Should be within ~15 minutes of the owner editing it
@TimPost Thanks. That might explain it.
@MartinvonWittich Additionally depressing is that clicking on the unicorns link at the bottom does nothing. Well wait, oh no, DOES IT KILL A UNICORN EVERY TIME YOU CLICK IT?
@MartinvonWittich meta.stackoverflow.com -> meta.stackexchange.com
10:13 AM
@TimPost We can repair that in a blink 10 seconds flat. Have the link point to the MPL:FIM Hub page...
@TimPost oh my god you made me click on that unicorn link. Now I feel bad :(
@3ventic I'm confused. Am I in the wrong channel? It says chat.meta.stackexchange.com in my URL bar.
@MartinvonWittich the profile links, replace stackoverflow with stackexchange and it works
@3ventic Ah, I see. I wasn't really that interested in the profile pages, I just noticed the dead links and thought I should report them :D
When something doesn't work, I'm usually interested in why :)
10:18 AM
"This accessory may not be supported" That's great, Apple, except it's your own friggin charger!
@MartinvonWittich If you refresh your browser window you will se that we just renamed the room to "Tavern of the Ponies"

I'm already not fond of JavaScript, but JavaScript inside a PDF, generated from C++ is ... argh
[ SmokeDetector ] All-caps title: DISARM THE B.O.M.B.! on codegolf.stackexchange.com
@Bart sounds like jQuery.
@MartinvonWittich also in the footer. That's because MSO became MSE and it does not redirect user pages. Links must be manually changed to meta.stackexchange.com/users/150235/tim-stone and meta.stackexchange.com/users/150097/yi-jiang
@TimPost do you have access to change elections.stackexchange.com? ^
I have access to change it, but I have no idea where to change it, Tim Stone's key is also on that server so he can easily login
@TimPost what do you mean "where"? Isn't it ordinary web page sitting on some server?
10:59 AM
It's a node.js app
Tim will need to make the change, push to github, then we can pull / restart on the VM
@TimPost that might be a problem, I suspect he's stuck in a shower infinite loop
Jun 7 at 15:25, by Tim Stone
And now I'm off to yet another baby shower. So. Many. Children. (but thankfully we just still have one for now :P)
...and we never heard from him since
Well, washing babies takes time.
@TimPost with my baby 80% of the time is consumed on letting him splash and break new records every time. Yesterday he succeeded to wet the whole room, and beyond.
Think I'll have to wear swimsuit soon when bathing him!

yet another stuck caps-lock
@JanDvorak it always feels like an icky non-language.
The existence of a bunch of languages that compile to JS is enough proof that there's something wrong with the language.
more than likely my lack of knowledge @JanDvorak. I have to use it on such limited occasions that I'm always merely hacking away at it until it seems to work.
11:38 AM
I've been working with TypeScript for over a year now and I don't want to go back to regular JS.
And to auto-generate it from my C++ code, to be embedded inside a PDF which does not have a really nice development experience in their non-pro acrobat ... sigh
@Stijn or that it's the only language in which you can do X (web development), but you prefer another language
@Bart I agree, that results in unreadable code (but so does any compilation)
ah, with javascript and css that looks a lot better...
@JanDvorak I might just be whining unreasonably, but I will never admit to that. JAVASCRIPT IS AT FAULT!!
@Bart claiming that popularity correlates with quality gives undeserved praise to PHP, ASP, Java, MsAccess... :-)
11:44 AM
(and if we go with negative correlation, we end up claiming Malebolge is da best, closely followed by INTERCAL, Funciton, Brainfuck and others)
The wifi connection is b0rked in this train. I suspect it waits for the next train to arrive...
@rene You have high expectations ;-)
@rene and here I am, happy that some of our trains have a power outlet so you can work offline on the train.
@Stijn I would never trust the power outlets in most of our trains
11:53 AM
I'm redirected now and then to 'make connection with wifi' and then it says 'connection is good'. After that page the connection is gone...

@bluefeet could you take a look at the comments here and remove some of them? Non-english, "jsfiddle is down", basically anything that isn't a coherent sentence or a fiddle.

That's no meme. Unless the train is filled with fluffy kittens.
