Q: How do you write a java prog for polynomials

user3247083Honestly it feels like I've been thrown into the deep end of the pool without being taught to swim with this class. We've never worked in java before and now we're supposed to know everything about it. They could have at least told us over the summer to learn the basics for it. Sorry for the rant...

Do you guys ever talk about things besides stuff you want closed or deleted?
 
@GnomeSlice sometimes we talk about spam and cats
 
1:19 AM
@GnomeSlice what else is there to talk about?
 
Positive things
 
Like closing bad questions?
That's a good (positive) thing
 
Enough positivity now, shut up.
I need my Siamese kittens to attend to.

@animuson Another locked post needing deletion.
 
well, that was weird. A user just posted a huge rant on meta.SO , I fixed a couple spelling errors and added the rant tag, but now he deleted it within 2minutes of posting?
 
How do I get the CloseAsOffTopicReasonType for an already closed post in the data explorer?
 
@SantaClaus I don't know, I tried recently but failed.
 
PendingFlags doesn't work. It only seems only contain flags/closevotes on unclosed posts (as the name suggests).
 
1:49 AM
maybe it's possible to do it by doing like text/body/description/something contains text like %tool% or whatever ... but I think I tried something like that but couldn't get it. You could start a meta.SE question , if doesn't give any answers i'll likely start a bounty
 
@SantaClaus last time I heard someone trying to do it, it has to go to the PostHistory and search for it (or maybe it was looking for who closed what)
 
if anyone wants to auto-nuke some comments, here you go data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/221663/…
 
@Qantas94Heavy yep , mine is < 61 chars so probably like 99.8% are worth nuking compared to 99% of the other one :)
 
1:59 AM
@iStimple: I sort via shortest comment so the most likely are nuked first :)
 
@Braiam Yay? :P
 
30 mins ago, by AstroCB
@animuson Another locked post needing deletion.
^ If that gets deleted, the entire tag family will be gone after a month and 2500+ questions.
 
@AstroCB ... you really edited all of those posts?
 
@hichris123 Yes: Unihedron and Sam did 200-400 each, but I did the rest.
 
I don't know @AstroCB, if you were very bored last month or you really like removing tags
 
2:08 AM
@AstroCB ... y'know you could have just cleaned up the crap, and then let Shog press a red shiny button, right?
 
@hichris123 By the time I cleaned up all of the questions, I would have edited them all, anyway.
 
I was on top of the weekly editors' board once... :P
 
@AstroCB By crap I mean questions that shouldn't be here.
 
@Braiam Removing tags is quite interesting.
 
Not stuff that just needs "thanks" removed.
 
2:09 AM
@Unihedron is the top voter this month stackoverflow.com/users?tab=voters !
 
@iStimple /s/week/month
 
@hichris123 I had the help of a few userscripts I wrote.
 
@iStimple \o/
 
@AstroCB That's... kinda when you know you're doing too much work.
When you need a userscript to make things faster... maybe think about not doing it.
 
@hichris123 True, but I just got carried away doing it: if anyone wants them, I'd be happy to put them on Stack Apps, but I think they're kind of dangerous.
 
2:11 AM
@Jamal is the top voter this quarter stackoverflow.com/users?tab=Voters&filter=quarter !
 
I should vote more.
I'm only on the 4th page for this month: stackoverflow.com/users?page=4&tab=voters&filter=month.
@AstroCB I sure hope your workplace/school didn't want anything done in the past month. ;)
 
I guess downvoting all those non-answers and tutorial questions has really paid off...
 
@hichris123 I can burn tags at a rate of about 60 questions/minute: one adds a "burn" button to tag pages, and then you can say whether you want to replace the tag or just remove it. It goes through all of the questions and does that, which works great as long as you don't do it too fast and get IP blocked.
 
Sounds like it happened to you once or twice.
 
@hichris123 Summer vacation + summer work complete == time to burn tags.
 
2:14 AM
@AstroCB Uuuhmm.... sorry, but what? You said you were doing more editing to them... but yet all you did was remove the tag?
 
@hichris123 Userscript s: that one is for extreme cases where you only want to do a mass retag/removal. I did at least a thousand manually.
So, for example, I mass-migrated and to before there was a consensus that should be burned as well.
 
@Braiam I can get who and the CloseReasonType, but I can't get down to the off-topic reason level

@Lix Adding sugar in water helps keep flowers fresh due to osmosis. However, individual factors such as the composition of the water that you are using contribute to the need for adding solvents - hard water, soft water etc. Just wanted to let you know that the reason is osmosis, the sucrose doesn't benefit the flower in any way. Just as adding salt to water kills the flower due to reverse-osmosis, adding sugar benefits the flower depending upon the constitution of the sap and the water.

@Unihedron not worth the effort
 
9:28 AM
Ehm, why @InfiniteRecursion? As soon as content is posted you have licensed it perpetually and irrevocably. So it's no longer "their stuff" to take away.
 
9:39 AM
On second thoughts @Jan, I don't want to spend this beautiful Sunday morning composing example spam, so let it be.
@Bart: Cody has rolled back the edit, so it looks good now. Sorry, I didn't realize the emphasis was to indicate the ownership of the content.
 
I'm subtle like that :)
 
Scary-quotes are hardly subtle :)
Also, I still wonder why Cody and you behave like twin glasses, rescuing each-other's posts...
 
Perhaps Bart has a smelly sock?
 
The real question might be "which one is the sockpuppet?" @InfiniteRecursion. — Bart Aug 14 at 15:50

Because of reasons @JanDvorak . You are not questioning the reasons, are you?
 
so, are you another guy that refuses to create flagging accounts?

With so many glasses around on SE, how can one say "It looked like his glasses" :o

I actually wonder how many sockpuppet flags moderators have had to handle because of this :D
 
Well, it was Infinite Recursion who said that... We don't take them serious, now do we?

yes use it. if it doesn't work then blame to Bart

11:36 AM
@rene You flag or I flag?
 
@rene but thats all from the same person i think
 
@TGMCians You are right, I just scrolled through the star wall and saw the earlier messages of the tavern. @Bart's messages are indeed frequently starred. The strange part is that the earlier users of the tavern seem to have left since we started visiting here. Even the messages have changed, earlier there were discussions about why a user was downvoted and attempts to ignore Jan, all these made me realize that the earlier ecosystem has been disturbed by us. Sorry for that.
 
@Unihedron I flagged them from the 18th
@iStimple looks like it, yes
Is that a problem?
 
@rene Moderator flag with the query or obsolete flags?
 
Hahaha, I'm not entirely sure what ecosystem you think was in place here @InfiniteRecursion
 
11:39 AM
@Unihedron just an obsolete on each comment...
 
@rene nope, just unusual that s/he's the only one that's done that
 
@iStimple maybe he became a mod on that site?
 
Well, the users and discussions were certainly different @Bart. You may not have noticed since you have been here longer.
I now recall that SPArcheologist visited the tavern the other day and then left :(
 
Users come and go @InfiniteRecursion. Some leave for a while. Some never come back. There is nothing to disturb here and no need to apologize.
 
@rene I understand. I'll flag too, then. :))

lol... he left a few comments earlier this week, despite not being a self acclaimed active member anymore...

"left a few comments" <--- started spamming his blog
