@Jamal s/site/sight/ ?
 
Anyone want to try for a reversal badge?
 
Meta or non-meta @Unihedron. On meta they are too easy.
 
Does it require work?
 
@Unihedron I have no idea what you are talking about. (winks)

Is this fishy?
All by different accounts...same question

@TGMCians if you want a specific template with characteristics you can ask in SoftRecs, as it stand I wouldn't ask your question
 
@TGMCians cssdsgn.com
 
Braiam : ok I don't want to ask such question there .... anyway thanks :)
 
36 Lines of code per method is high?

@rene seems good. thanks rene :)
 
@Braiam if it doesn fit on the screen it is too big

@rene we saw how those measures don't actually help :(

Do you guys want to help me flag about 25 more plagiarized answers?

user163250
I've flagged the following posts so far:
 
user163250

1. Posts 1-23.
 
You should include post scores and dates in the query.
 
user163250
2. Posts 27, 37, 40.
 
And content length.

@bjb568 why would it matter?
 
@Cupcake Because.

5:12 PM
@bjb568 um, don't start going through this guy's profile to start downvoting and closing stuff.
 
@Cupcake Which guy?
 
user163250
Just flag the posts that I haven't flagged yet.

Yes, I know.
But GTG now, you can get somebody else to flag.

I actually caught one plagiarizer plagiarizing off of another plagiarizer.
 
user163250
Actually, I just found about 17 answers that all plagiarize off of this one, either fully or partially: stackoverflow.com/a/1109108/456814

That's just really sad.

I need more flags :P

@Cupcake uhhhh hang on
@Cupcake Which one?

I flagged this saying that Bill deleted the wrong answer, but they're actually both plagiarized stackoverflow.com/a/20746291/456814

I got 5 upvotes on this answer while the question is only viewed 40 times. Do I need to be prepared for the votes being reversed due to some voting ring activity?
 
no.
You never have to be prepared for a reversal
 
It is weird though. I only get an upvote now and then on some answers but these seem to come in in a much higher rate
 
reddit?
 
@rene checks the question tags the c# guys tend to upvote more often than others users
 
6:19 PM
Oh, is that true?
Didn't notice that before
 
@Braiam I can find answers from me that are better researched but didn't receive so many upvotes in a couple of days... but I'll stop worry-ing
:)
I assume this is too broad: stackoverflow.com/questions/25244567/…
has a bounty on it though...
 
6:38 PM
@rene don't worry, my two most upvoted answers (+100) are a 4 lines long answer and one copy-n-paste from somewhere with instructions about doing something

This means some people take FIP very serious, so serious they become a fraudster?
 
are SE users pro or anti turtles?

no, just regular
 
are turtles pro or anti unicorns?
 
@iStimple I guess anti...where can I collect my prize?

@BradLarson did you only reject this single edit or did you leave a message for the editor to improve?
 
Turtles were like the cool / favorite thing among people back in the day it seemed. All the girls drew turtles, talked about turtles, etc , even guys did. But now a days, it seems like the cats and kittens have taken all the spotlight away from turtles.
 
Turtles are meh.

Stack Overflow is not a code writing service. Write your code yourself. If you encounter a problem that you can't solve while writing it, you may ask a question. — bjb568 just now

user163250
Just downvote and move on.
 
What? Crap users should be driven away or drastically improve themselves.
###Question not enough info
Please include a minimal example that reproduces the problem, a clear problem statement, and any error messages or other information to help identify the problem. Without this information, it is hard to answer the question.

###Question info external
Please include all relevant information *in the question*. While outside resources can help answerers find the problem, please include as much information in the question itself because links can change and break.

###Debug question
^ There's my autos.
 
@bjb568 We aren't in the business of driving away users. That's called being mean.
Where we can be nice and educate, we absolutely should
 
8:41 PM
@Undo What do you think downvoting and closing is for? Q-ban, primarily.
 
Uh no.
 
@Undo If educating would make a difference. But if it's crap, I'm not going to bother.
 
Downvoting is to say this isn't high-quality. Close voting is to say that we don't accept this here.
Heck, most sites don't even have QBans enabled!
 
I'm talking about downvoting and closing crap questions on SO.
 
The answer to so many questions:

Is NAA a viable reason for delete votes?
Or can only mods handle that?
 
what are you asking?
not-answers often attract delete votes
 
If an answer is an answer, but not necessarily to that question, would people vote to delete it?
The answer is "Here is an example (reduced for brevity) of what I have done in the past when animating background colour on hover.. hopefully you can try the same approach when animating colour instead." + code. It does not attempt to actually answer the question, but rather provides a code snippet that the author often uses for similar (used lightly) cases.
 
@AstroCB sounds like the intention is to provide an answer to the question, albeit not in a form directly usable.
 
"Why isn't this code that animates text color working?" - "Well, I'm not sure, but here's some code that I use for animating background color."
 
Contrast that with "Q: how do I animate color? A: here's how you convert an integer to an NSString"
@AstroCB assuming this is CSS, the difference is trivial
 
9:59 PM
JavaScript
 
whatever
 
It would be, but his code takes an entirely different approach rather than solving his problem.
 
@AstroCB if that's the code in your comment's revision history, then the change involves modifying "backgroundColor" to be "color"
 
@Shog9 Then why didn't the answerer do that?
 
@AstroCB beats me. Does it matter? Is this the only answer on the question or something? There are tons of questions about text color animation on SO already...
 
10:11 PM
Nope.
Just wondering.

I never realized how much of a milestone 2k was: I can do so much stuff now.
I also never realized how bad Suggested Edits are: I've only approved 2 out of the 17 I've done so far.
 
11:08 PM
@AstroCB True, but then you review 20 posts and have to wait until another day for more.

A: How can an answer posted by a 3.5k rep user get used as an Audit in the "First-Post" review queue?

Geoff DalgasI have audited our audit code and it should be faking up a low rep user and showing you the real rep after completion of the audit.

Is anyone else seeing blank images for people with Gravatars?
 
11:37 PM
@AstroCB Happened to me once, I was told that my profile pic was blank. Maybe try refreshing?
 
@Unihedron It's pervasive: I see it for everyone whose profile picture is from Gravatar.

The caching of the review page is getting ridiculous.
There's almost no point to having the page there, because the numbers are always inaccurate.

I wholeheartedly agree. You kinda have to go in and spam-reload now.
