I'll take that as a no.

Oh noes, I'm trying to do spanish homework but the translate bots are down. Looks like it's SantaBot to the rescue!
@bjb568 No spaces!

@SantaClaus I'm doing spanish too!

Welp, no Feeds
 
@bjb568 What level?
 
@AndrewT. it only works for mods ATM.

@AndrewT. I think they took it down because of abuse.
@Jamal I'm the only one that can give out free stuff here.
 
No worry, I already predicted it would be abused =/

Q: How to remove pseudo-element styles from the first element?

Aboud Joudacan some one help me to figure out how to remove the first line from left, as shown in the next img and this is my css code: .col-sm-6:after { content: ""; width: 1px; background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% #DDD; height: 100%; position: absolute; top:0; left: 0px; ...

Who upvotes this stuff?
Thank you, i'll use your advice next time. — Aboud Jouda 11 mins ago
 
@AstroCB no checkmark... that gotta suck :P
which is why I say "thank you" comments are worthless
 
@Braiam Chat is worthless.

1:44 AM
@Braiam :O
Can someone with knowledge of spanish explain the difference between cien and ciento? Both being the number 100.
 
@SantaClaus one is for counting
the other is exclamative
 
@Braiam Like ciento y uno for 101?
Or cien y uno for 101?
 
@SantaClaus this
 
@Braiam Ok thanks.
 
through when you only mean to say 100 is cien, not ciento
ciento is used more in prose, verses and poetry, for normal talk
you can't be the only one recommending stuff :P
@SantaClaus case point: más vale pajaro en mano, que ciento volando

@Braiam I have no idea what you just said
 
@Jamal Awh, I like the author's extensive vocabulary.

Is related questions gone, or is it just me, or I didn't read any announcement?
 
is SO running a little slow for anyone else?
@AndrewT. related is showing up again for me
to be clear, just the review queue is extremely slow
to be clearer, it seems it's just the LQRQ that is reallly slow
 
2:41 AM
@lostsock Challenge Accepted
 
@lostsock Thanks for the follow-up, I also see related questions again now
@lostsock repro'd. took almost 20 seconds to load a review.
 
@animuson is the mod flag queue slow at all? :p
 
@lostsock What do you mean by slow? As in it takes a while to load or the fact that there are 1200 flags in it?
 
takes a while to load, the LQRQ is extremely slow for some reason
 
I think it's just review. The flags queue doesn't use the same system.

A: What to do with same answers from one user on multiple questions

EJPThis is somewhat off-topic but too long to post as a comment. Strictly speaking the problem really shouldn't have arisen in the first place. When it comes right down to it, this is a data model problem. SO, like most bug tracking systems I have ever used, works on a system of 'duplicates'. Howeve...

 
@JanDvorak un-shouted it and also fixed formatting. Lets see the reviewers now

@AvinashRaj anyway, it seems you're correct. The last revision from OP didn't remove the info that you added back. So, don't worry, keep calm and continue answering.

@mehow Basically.
 
and that means, he put a lot of effort, he deserves an upvote :P
 
Question. If you CV a user's question and he deletes the question, will you regain the CV?

@Unihedron It's still hardly a proper answer.

Am I going blind, or do Mondays suck? i.imgur.com/3FaoxQB.png
I can't see the difference
 
@Sam Then it's "not a good answer" or "not the answer" (dv it), but not "not an answer" (as in invalid some time in the future as the link will change so get rid of it via VLQP deletion).
I do agree the recommend deletion reason is confusing. Only after reading meta posts did I realize ^ that.
hey community,
> @user, you're such a pill, instead of simply asking a question, you're showing off.
 
Sam
@Unihedron Yeah, but you could say that about quite a few answers in the LQPQ that just have a link + basic explanation (like 1-2 sentences), and they all get deleted too.
 
^ are comments like these rude?
 
Sam
Yes.
Too chatty, at least.
 
@Sam You'd have to distinguish between "explanation decays past time as link changes" (use this plugin) or "You can do it by using a ViewCounter. Here is example / read more: (link)".
 
8:54 AM
@Stijn I don't know about first one, but mondays really suck. Specially mornings
 
Sam
@Unihedron I see, thx for explaining.
 
Actually, "high quality" post audits in the LQPQ are posts with a positive score that all reviewers "looks ok" it, correct?
 
@Unihedron please either LQRQ or LQPRQ
 
Thanks. I'll use lqrq to infer it then.
 
@Unihedron ? i think it just goes mainly be fitting the requirements for a low quality post, but has >= 5 score or so
 
9:05 AM
@lostsock In that case, I wonder if any of my answers has been used as an audit.
 
this is what I mostly see in Android featured tab. If you don't get an answer, put bounty on your question. Huh!
 
mm... did anyone else got logged out?
 
@DroidDev I once saw a question about "how to add tags onto a youtube video automatically" get a bounty just to keep it from being closed.
 
@Unihedron that happens a lot. I think rules for bounty questions need to be changed now.
there you go... another one

12:12 PM
Possibly more of a job for an SE team member, but I just flagged a post from this user as spam on Electrical Engineering and noticed every non-deleted answer on all sites seems to be a promo for the same product, even though some are upvoted and may seem to answer the questions: stackexchange.com/users/1995705/anastasia-krylova?tab=accounts
 
Anyone point in the right direction in terms of closing this as not reproductive
 
@meh how about "clear problem statement"?
 
@mehow I don't think it should be closed. If OP was able to give a reproducible example (thus demonstrating a faulty environment setup), OP wouldn't need to ask how to fix it.
 
@Stijn good point but then it's off topic as not programming related question, wouldnt it
 
@Unihedron, actually I just flagged it as spam, it's the same person I posted above posting the same crap across other sites as well.
 
While I agree with you that repeated posting should not be tolerated, the flag is used for, as it describes, "This answer is effectively an advertisement with no disclosure. It is not useful or relevant, but promotional."
and the post becomes an audit as well..
 
@Unihedron, umm yes but it's not the repeated part that's the problem - spam is spam. That's a link to a commercial product and isn't useful or relevant - not for that question or the ten or so other ones.
 
In that case, I wonder why that answer gets an upvote..

@ShadowWizard @Unihedron didn't trained it well then.
 
@AnnaLear at your free time, can you please have a look here? I suspect it will take ages for a dev to notice it otherwise, so allowing myself to promote it here. Thanks in Advance! :D
 
@ShadowWizard there's this. that's probably the cause...
 
@AnnaLear but parenting is nearly deserted, the chance other user was viewing that edit in the review in the last hour is nearly zero.
 
yeah
I pinged folks internally to take a look
 
Maybe the threshold is set too high in parenting, @Anna?
 
I don't think there's a setting for it. Not 100% sure off-hand and can't dig right now.
 
@AnnaLear fair enough, count on me to ping again in 6-8 weeks ;)
 
1:37 PM
@ShadowWizard by all means :)
 
Hey question for moderators - Do you prefer if I flag obsolete comments as "obsolete" or "other.. This comment is OP pointing out an issue in the solution. As the answer poster acknowledges and updates their answer, this comment is now obsolete. Please delete it."? I figured "obsolete" may not provide the best of context so I try to use an "other" tag with the situation explained whenever possible..
 
@Unihedron if enough users (depends on comment score, minimum is 3 I think) flag as anything other than "other", the comment gets auto deleted
So usually "obsolete" is better for obsolete comments.
"other" should be used e.g. when there are other comments that need cleanup or something else is wrong.
 
Hi @AnnaLear, quick question if OK. I flagged spam from this user on EE.SE and SO (account now deleted) because I was familiar enough with the sites / questions to know they were spam answers, but is there a preferred way to flag a suspected network wide spammer because diamond mods on individual sites wouldn't be able to view the complete history. Here is the account in question: stackexchange.com/users/1995705/anastasia-krylova?tab=accounts
 
@PeterJ There isn't really a good way to do that. In most cases, spam can just be handled on each site individually. If you come across a profile like this, you can drop us a line via the contact form and we can handle it across the network. (I'm cleaning up this one as we speak :))
 
@AnnaLear, thanks, looking at the profile seems to have slipped under the radar for a while.
 
1:51 PM
Yeah, but it also wasn't terribly prolific spam-wise. Nobody has standards anymore. ;)
 
@AnnaLear I read internally as internationally and was wondering how? :/
 
@DroidDev Hmm, it was almost international. We do have non-US devs, you know.
 
@AnnaLear yes, I know that. But, still, almost is a big word and then I had to read the whole sentence in shock
 
@DroidDev the answer is obvious:
