whenever you guys see a "Use a more specific tag if applicable" in a tag wiki/excerpt, how do you interpret it?
@Braiam I'd look for a more specific tag if applicable
@Sam and what about the tag that says that message, would you use it if you found the one that is more applicable?
@Braiam I wouldn't
@Braiam No.

News update: Grammar Nazis have invaded the Tavern!
@Pham * Nazis
Nah, those grammar nazis are tavern residents
@Braiam Depends on how wiki is phrased, I guess. When I wrote this one I tried to say that a more specific tag should be used instead of this one.

@Sam I was hoping that there would really be an interactive map of Peru
I am shocked by ChrisF's edit, and the "hy all" stackoverflow.com/posts/19818776/revisions
@InfiniteRecursion That's not really his edit.
@Undo Thanks, that explains it
3:12 PM
@Undo But he could take the 5min grace period and improve the post as well... Not that it's important :P
meh, when you're staring down a 1000+ flag queue you don't really worry about people's spelling
Hurai userscripts!
thinks some day Sam and Jan will stare down the 1000+ flag queue and stop worrying about spellings
@InfiniteRecursion does the CVQ count?
3:16 PM
@JanDvorak Is that a hint?
No. You become a mod right now!
@InfiniteRecursion thinks I'll never be Mod, so won't stare down the 1000+ flag queue
nope, it's just 40 posts @Jan, so it doesn't count
@Sam Famous last words :)
I love regex replacements. They're so handy! ^_^
@Unihedron Indeed. :)
3:20 PM
Aww, I thought you were replying to my other message.
@JanDvorak Bye!
@Bart Don't be bossy with aspiring mods...you never know
@Bart No. YOU become a mod right now!
3:21 PM
@Unihedron lol, nope. I hardly use regex so I wouldn't know.
@Unihedron there's an idea
chat hates me
@Unihedron no pings after a poof, please. I've had to wake up my computer just to see what you told me.

@Unihedron careful what you wish for.
You will be a transparent and fragile mod @Bart, so no worries :P

I'm happy they didn't write that :P
Always take what people tell you with a grain of salt.
Just remember that they've corrupted their computer with viruses by clicking "Ignore" on anti-virus warnings on Windows at least twice. :P
Wow android.se's bios look terrible
@ProgramFOX where's that from?
@Undo From an article that's in our sourcebook of Dutch at school.
3:43 PM
@Undo what a coincidence. I'm currently a senior researcher there as well ...
It's taken from a real article, not sure where it's published though.
@Unihedron <3 Miaou
Apparently the article comes from a magazine about psychology.

I thought I was progressing fairly well in understanding math, then I saw math.SE's 404 page.
If I had to guess I'd say that that is a baseball team logo.

7:58 PM
The crossing line is awkward. It's a bit better in MathJax, though still not perfect. Sample here
$ \not \exists $ ... alas, still no built-in MathJax in chat.
I understand that on Stack Overflow it's impractical due to the huge number of page requests. But chat does not see that level of traffic.
8:18 PM
@Uni should be +100500
It overflew.
@bjb568 just some proper aligning, fonts... :)
@nicael Just curious, why post that here?
You'd probably have better turnout by posting it in the emacs room.
People that aren't actively involved in a site shouldn't really be helping chose mods if they won't have to live with them on a site.
But kudos for adding those stats to each one ;)

@Pham clean
come on mods.. take it down.
Isn't it 7 off/spam flags for auto deletion, right?
9:52 PM
Back I am
@Sam if so, one more would do it.
@Sam assuming each downvoter also flagged it.
@LynnCrumbling Yup, I was the last
(but can't downvote)
An off/spam flag also dv's the post.
Ah, ok
It's still there...

7 minutes. This is just sad.

At what point will that account automatically get nailed?
I haven't a clue.
The first is gone.
9:56 PM
@ProgramFOX Yep. :D I was busy.
@Unihedron Thanks!
@Andy flag^
@Frank Awww...missed it
Yeah, 7 flags = boom.
I thought it was 6...
9:59 PM
Nope, first one had 6 flags but it still sat there for a few mins.
@Sam Maybe someone downvoted.
On GL, all the spam I flag + downvote, and it disappears at -7, so I guessed the flag count must be 6.
Without flagging? :O
Hmm, I dunno then.
Anyways, I'm off now. Cya laters.
Congrats @Frank, you're #2 in WPD :D
@ShadowWizard WPD?
@LynnCrumbling account is never automatically deleted
@Frank Words Per Day of course, new WAG stat that I've just added. :)
10:06 PM
@Frank, someone stole your totally unique username: moderators.stackexchange.com/questions/770/…
@ShadowWizard By nailed, I meant some sort of measure to prevent it from performing further actions (suspension, not necessarily deletion.) Isn't there something that kicks in?
@ShadowWizard Ah. Haven't had time for the game, much though. Who was #1?
@Andy :O
@LynnCrumbling only question/answer ban
@ShadowWizard Ah, ok... is that an automatic mechanism?
@Frank the bot... no surprise. No worry, when you're at it, you join with full force which is a good thing. :-D
10:08 PM
@ShadowWizard Dumb bot... Now I have a new goal.
@LynnCrumbling yup, when a user gets enough downvotes on enough posts, automatic ban is issued.
@Frank well, it's 68.5 for the bot and 64.1 for you so it should be possible ;)
I have meager 23.8 due to days where I don't post much
Oh look, 6 idiots starred my ★ 7. Knew that would happen. MUAHAHAHA!
one more!
10:12 PM
@ShadowWizard Heeheehee grrf ahem. You guys...
OK, off to watch Game of Thrones chapter one of season four, cya!
@Frank now you've just called five people idiots...
@JanDvorak 6
@JanDvorak six actually
But it's true, so no offence taken :D
no. I'm the sole starrer that isn't an idiot.
10:13 PM
@JanDvorak They know my intentions were good, so they will understand.
@JanDvorak prove it!
@ShadowWizard that I starred it, or that I'm not an idiot?
@ShadowWizard doing the quiz
Says I was in the 100 percentile intelligence wise.

I mean, night, @Jan!
@isomorphismes cool name!
@Frank thanks!
It's a reference to a Brad DeLong blogpost
@isomorphismes No idea who that is.
My name is boring. Everywhere else on SE, my name is J. Musser.
@isomorphismes ok...

Q: Can someone identify this honeysuckle plant by the flowers?

elizabeth Can someone please tell me what type of honeysuckles these are?

Whatever. No effort there.
11:39 PM
@Undo thanks for the edit. :)
Hi, can someone with the privilege to do so make a synonym for [as.factor] tag to make it point to [r-factor], please?
I'm trying to clean up [level], [order], and a few other common [r] tags.
Also any input would be appreciated whether it's appropriate to redirect [sapply], [tapply], and [lapply] into [apply].
@isomorphismes Did you write a meta post first?
11:55 PM
@Unihedron No, is that what I should do?
I don't want to "pollute" the Q&A forum with somethign pretty small.
@isomorphismes Say 'forum' again and I may burst open.
And possibly die.
still kickin around
