2:00 PM
by religious conversation you mean endless discussion/debate,, right...??
 
it is really strange that wherever I go, people start hating me
because I am saying mostly right things that no one wants to say
 
Pro Tip: Typing with proper grammar insta-grants you +50 charisma.
 
or maybe they think I am a dick just because of statements like this
 
@Bart is he still around? Ages since I saw him active :(
 
@Unihedron I thought the maximum was 18?
 
2:02 PM
Lol...it's just been a single day @Bart. You are the lord of the stars
 
@JanDvorak The starting point is a negative number though...
 
@Unihedron Does that include putting full stops at the end of the sentences?
 
@Unihedron not possible. Which ruleset?
 
@DroidDev: Yes, the long discussion about toes, finger, school, legs, life and jesus...that was a religious discussion. It takes some time to notice the religious part among all that text
 
2:06 PM
@InfiniteRecursion plot twist, everything written here is a part of religious discussion, but its encoded :P
 
@DroidDev :o (gasp)
 
Thanks for the revelation @DroidDev. I thought @JanDvorak is collecting info to write the biography of zigi...how many toes do you have? etc confused me...
 
Actually religion is further away from me than my dream of seeing a planet where people are virtualized after their biological body dies and everything running on more sustainable sources, but Eddison had to sabotage Tesla, didn't he.
 
wonders if toes was code for socks
 
nope, toes as in feet toes
 
2:10 PM
Anyone up for a game of chess? I'm tired.
 
if anyone has watched the movie Gattaca
there was a piano player who had 5 fingers and could play a song written fro people with 12 fingers
 
looks around for the train
 
wonders what train @InfiniteRecursion means
 
@ShadowWizard Cody? Think I saw him post something yesterday ...
 
morning
 
2:14 PM
I like trains.
 
morning
 
Morning!
 
morbid chick wants someone to jump, but alas no train
Morning
 
@Unihedron and you just broke one :P
@InfiniteRecursion I am always here whenever you need help :D
 
@Bart not on MSE, his last answer there is over 2 months ago ):
 
2:17 PM
I think it is wrong if the SO creators hide how their algorithms work from the users and have no transparency to tell users they are not transparent fro asking if someone can abuse the system
 
you can post on MSE about it
 
Thanks @DroidDev :) let's build a train :D
 
@InfiniteRecursion ok, you start, I'll follow your lead :)
 
let's train a build
 
\_____________/
 
2:20 PM
wonders if @santa will gift her a train as an early christmas gift
 
@InfiniteRecursion you mean @satan
 
Yahoo! Train :D thanks @ShadowWizard
 
maybe @santana?
 
@InfiniteRecursion you are a her?
 
@zigi chick is usually a sign to "her"
 
2:23 PM
@zigi thanks captain obvious
 
sorry, I just realized :D
haha well excuse me milady if I have been rude in any way to you
 
@InfiniteRecursion ok, there you go....

2:33 PM
4 hours ago, by Infinite Recursion
thinks if something needs so much effort to be proved, maybe it's not worth proving at all...socrates said something like that...but she can't remember the exact source now
"she" can't remember....
 
you do realize I filter a lot of information a day
more than 10-20K lines
so I can't know all of it word by word
and I must have missed it
especially when people talk for themselves in 3rd person
 
@ShadowWizard yup
 
Yes, with such amazing conversations...I can imagine. Anyways he or she doesn't matter, SE is gender neutral
 
surely
especially with people/animals that are 'it' like me
The programmers of tomorrow are the wizards of the future!
 
@Jan: Are you taking notes for zigi's biography? Toes, fingers, school...
 
2:38 PM
so are you a programmer of yesterday ^^ @ShadowWizard ?
 
@Unihedron are you a grammar Nazi?
 
I'm wondering what makes you constantly feel the need to embed a YouTube video in a one-boxed content that takes up 1/3 of the page height that I'm not sure if anyone here really feels like watching.
Hmm.
 
Good covers attract attention, that's why people invest money in marketing. Since a picture tells a thousand words, I guess people would be more inclined to see it if they want if they know what it is.
 
@DroidDev I am a wizard of the morrow of course!
 
@ShadowWizard but aren't you already one?
 
2:45 PM
(secretly agrees with @Unihedron)
 
How do you people pronounce the word nuclear?
I have noticed my old American room mate used to pronounce it as nu-cue-ler
 
"Clear"ly
 
what about mischievous
 
Nuke-lear.
 
@Unihedron yep
 
2:47 PM
Misc-ce-lane-ious.
 
what are we doing here again?
 
remembers Bernard Shaw's pygmalion
 
@DroidDev I smell an infinite loop here {runs away} ;)
 
morbid chick is still waiting for the jump, all the trains and choppers have arrived
 
does anyone use the sentence "I am feeling nauseous"
 
2:50 PM
We can use that now...that's exactly how we are feeling
 
@zigi not if I'm standing nearby, a train is coming, and 200 people are standing on the rails
 
Well I am here to tell you that that's an improper use and you have to say, "I am feeling nauseated"
;)
 
@ShadowWizard to den :P
 
note to self: grammar is of utmost priority when you are feeling nauseous
 
2:52 PM
nau.... what?
 
you are not feeling nauseous but rather nauseated
 
:/
 
in other words someone's smell might be quite nauseous, but that is a different story
 
:/
 
the amount of moderation we did today=0.000000000005%
 
2:54 PM
The world needs more grammar conscious doctors. Nausea will disappear on it's own.
 
@DroidDev :( how is that a floating point number .....
 
@DroidDev :(
 
@Unihedron oh! I forgot to put % sign in the end
 
@DroidDev (shooks head and goes back to hunting for questions to answer)
 
@Unihedron way to go, I am also leaving... :)
 
2:57 PM
@Unihedron and @DroidDev: me too :)
 
enjoy your day ladies and gents
 
Enjoy your day too. Make sure you enlighten @Jan completely. We interrupted your religious enlightenment.

@InfiniteRecursion well he is a man so he can decide for his own, what and whom to trust
 
@zigi does this imply that a woman can't decide for her own?
 
I meant he's a grown man
 
3:07 PM
so.... "adult"?
 
too long, @Unihedron! :(
 
Music is joy
 
joy is music
 
@zigi: that comment made me feel nauseated

A: Hide negatively-voted posts from the front page

bjb568Ya heard of hidden? Use it. It's totally better.

New major version because of that!
Yay!
 
Thanks for the tip @bjb568. It never worked for me before, so my choices were to use display: hidden; or unnecessarily include jQuery.
That makes even more of a difference on the one that hides the Community Bulletin.
So much better:
 
4:19 PM
 
@bjb568 Wow, that makes the Community Bulletin script work really well. If I didn't like Meta so much, I might even use it myself. @Cupcake: Community Bulletin-hiding script updated with major improvements.

I added a Data Explorer query that lets you find reviews of your own posts (I assumed you wouldn't mind because you made it a Community Wiki), which should give you an idea as to what of yours has been flagged (not comments, though).

@Cupcake Well, I never actually got authenticated in the first place. And I got banned when trying to debug my application. For some reason the server didn't like my fkey no matter what

@SantaClaus Use… a good fkey then?

A: Are there any worse sorting algorithms than Bogosort (a.k.a Monkey Sort)?

Curtis LassamJingle Sort, as described here. You give each value in your list to a different child on Christmas. Children, being awful human beings, will compare the value of their gifts and sort themselves accordingly.

I think @SantaClaus uses this.
 
@bjb568 maybe...
I love cookies and all, but not when they mess up openid authentication, as they just did.

@iStimple What? They're identical.

@BradLarson I'm out of flags for the day, so I can't flag the posts of the relevant people, but I think one of the plagiarizers that I've been flagging has a sock account, or is in a voting ring.
 
@Cupcake, new record...1 user. 56 duplicates
 
user163250
It's the really high-rep user with a ton of plagiarized content that you've recently been going through.
 
user163250
There's a lower rep user with a similar profile, and they've both appeared on the same posts, as either answerers, or the higher-rep user answering the lower-rep user's question.
 
user163250
5:50 PM
I'll flag later today or tomorrow so you can see the specific posts and users.
 
user163250
@Andy are we talking about the same person?
 
@Cupcake Not sure. This user is in the 3K rep range
 
Does anybody know how to get the value of variables from the content scope in greesemonkey?
 
@bjb568 store them out into the global scope
 
user163250
@Andy no, not the same guy. I'm talking about someone who was at a much higher rep level.
 
5:53 PM
or put a breakpoint somewhere inside
 
@JanDvorak I'm not storing them, the page is.
@JanDvorak What's that?
Figured it out. Copy-pasted it from another script.
var script = document.createElement("script");
script.type = "text/javascript";
script.textContent = '(' + (function() {
  var parent = document.getElementsByClassName('post-menu')[0];
  var lsep = document.createElement('span');
  lsep.classList.add('lsep');
  lsep.appendChild(document.createTextNode('|'));
  parent.appendChild(lsep);
  var a = document.createElement('a');
  a.appendChild(document.createTextNode('LQ'));
  parent.appendChild(a);
  a.onclick = function() {
    alert(StackExchange.options.user.fkey)
 
6:09 PM
@Cupcake At least one of them did. I believe that has been dealt with. If not, remember to flag it tomorrow and we'll look into it. Don't want to speculate publicly about anyone.
 
user163250
@BradLarson Ok.
 
@Braiam can you write a comment there so that op would ask that question to specific site..like ubuntu.stackex...
if you dont have 10k reputation and you want to delete any crap question which has no use then Is it good idea to flag it for moderator ?
 
@TGMCians no
 
then any solution ?
 
6:22 PM
use chat rooms
But make sure it actually serves no remaining value first.
 
it may be guy don't know about tavern chat where guys do these activities
yes it has no use. it is crap
stackexchange is big network and probably most users never checked chat...
even for technical stuff...
 
@TGMCians no, I don't send anyone to other sites so they deal with the crap
 
@Braiam oh yeah right don't send if it is crap
anyone around who have 10k+ reputation here on stackoverflow?
 
I have 7.5k :(
 
I have 9883 now.. that my milestone would be completed soon..then i don't need mod to let them know about crap question to delete.
it's ok when someone flag for technical inaccuracies then they decline..all ok but quiet weird when they decline because someone flag to delete crap from site
 
6:32 PM
@TGMCians Yeah. That happens a lot with me.
 
and even after that
they delete it probably
and decline flags... cheating
 
yeah sometime it makes to move away from this all stuff when it doesn't make sense
one time mod sent this message when I flagged one answer that was link only.
> declined - VLQ is for posts that are gibberish. For off-topic posts, just vote to close or cast a mod flag to close if you don't have closing privileges.
I flagged to answer then it doesn't make any sense to write this For off-topic posts, just vote to close or cast a mod flag to close if you don't have closing privileges.
after they declined it, Laszlo helped me later he again flagged then they deleted..
 
How can you post to chat with minimal javascript?
 
6:59 PM
Why does it take 20k rep to have tag wiki edit privileges?
Why is there such a high rep threshold for that?
 
Because tag wiki is for trusted users.
 
@AstroCB you can suggest at 2.5k and approve at 5k
 
@Braiam I've always been able to suggest edits; I'm just wondering why the bar is set so high for full editing of tag wikis (I can see 5k or maybe 10k because they're important, but 20k?).
 
@bjb568 $.post('/chats/89/messages/new', {text: 'hello world!', fkey : fkey().fkey });
 
hello world!

hello world!
@rene Why would you call jQuery "minimal javascript"?
 
Oh, from there you can minimize further I guess...

Q: Tag cleanup request: [24hour]

nishantjrFrom the 24hour tag wiki: 24hour is a term meaning "all day" or "continuous". It is based on the fact that there are 24 hours in a day. I don't think the tag serves a useful purpose. Questions tagged with it seem to relate to things like time formats, doing things every 24 hours, etc.

Jon EricsonLast month Shog9 proposed Stack Overflow Academy on Area 51. I was skeptical and thought it was sort of a joke.

user163250
@JasonC are you happy now?
 
@Cupcake Sorry about that. But we do want to be sure to keep working toward a real solution.
 
@Cupcake YES. But now I'm obligated to put my money where my mouth is and help out on meta!
Too bad I'm about to leave town for a month. When I come back I will make it my personal mission to make both MSO and Ask Patents a better place.
SOA will always stand for Shog9's On Acid to me, though.
 
7:43 PM
Agreed. It's a useless site.
 
@Cupcake ...
Well, there goes that...effort.
Time to write up a response, I guess.
 
@AstroCB For what it's worth, we are hoping to build off of the effort by helping those sorts of questions fly on MSO.
 
@JonEricson I hope so, but...it just doesn't work there. It makes sense, and I expected this, but I'm just not sure how I feel about it yet.
 
@AstroCB How are you not sure that "I didn't want to read the help center or any of the resources on the internet about asking questions, can you just write the answer here for me instead?" is a bad idea?
Man I wish I had time to make a post there right now, but I have to pack. \o
 
7:59 PM
@JasonC It had potential: I'm writing up an answer now; you'll see what I mean.
 
I think people that want to help but can't is a minority. Those who want to and are are those who should be supported. Those who won't should just go away.
 
@AstroCB If we can't make meta work for these sorts of questions, we're going to try something else. (And that something else might be reopening SOA for all I know.)

@AstroCB Of course not. You implemented it.
@Cupcake No this is closevotes only. Everything else goes in the tavern. This is a room full of questions that need closevotes in a format made for bots to be able to easily parse it.
 
@bjb568 Well, I countered it, anyway.

@bjb568 oh...my bad, sorry.

Don't send the wrong message by closing that question.
 
@Cupcake I guess I'm not sure what benefit there would be to reopening it. I mean, if it were deleted, I'd be unhappy, but what's wrong with letting it stay closed.

@Jon It's just wrong having it closed.
 
@Cupcake Thanks for that edit! I was just editing the exact same spot, lol.
