9:18 AM
UGT
 
Ignore my insanely erroneous timezone-calculations.
At least I can spell erroneous.
 
@ShadowWizard I meant 'fixed' as in: the question is undeleted now. Not the assumed bug.
 
it's... bjb time
 
@ShadowWizard: Were you still working on a MSE question?

@bummi Blacklisted user and registered question as true positive: added title to the Bayesian doctype 'bad'.
 
@PatrickHofman nah, no time. Maybe later. Why?
 
@ShadowWizard It seems to be 'documented' (see meta.stackoverflow.com/a/285133/993547), so I thought of doing a FR, but wanted to give you a chance first, since you were on it.

Spam Q (91.1%): The Trick Of Skin That Is Really Beautiful?, by □Hennemann, on askubuntu.com.
 
@PatrickHofman that answer pretty much sums up what I'm about to post in MSE as bug report, yes.

Q: Prevent questions with bounty to be auto-deleted

Patrick HofmanOriginating from this question on MSO (Question about the name of a software design pattern was deleted), we wondered why a specific question was deleted, which met all requirements for deletion, but had a bounty on it. As Mad Scientist sums up in that post, a question does quality for deletion,...

Do you want me to delete since you were first?
 
Sam
@bummi Hmm, only 3 questions, so far.
Ugh, my flag is still active.

@Sam did the user spam before? or troll? or just couldn't understand how SE works?

Np, I'll flag this one...
@AndrewT. Troll.
 
I flagged for suspected voting fraud
 
Sam
Flagged the physics post.
 
Only Bio question is upvoted, and the question got officially tweeted. Probably that's why it got some attention
 
Low Quality Q (17.6%): Android App Crashing issues in after signing in eclipse, by □ Alpa mori, on stackoverflow.com.
 
@Sam and others out of interest what's everyone flagging the TV noise question for? It's probably OT / unclear for most sites but only has a Wikipedia link but there is a reason it happens, so probably not worst question ever although in current form should probably just be closed.
 
I somehow agree. I still can't see them as troll. At the very least, they asked on more-or-less correct sites (although still off-topic).
 
Sam
But there's an uncanny resemblance with this user's posts and with yesterday's troll.

There's a problem with this dictionary.

@Fundamental edited question body, title still the same
 
..and, gone. Gotta love efficiency.
ok - general network question: I know you get a +100 on other network sites one you've hit a certain amount (200) on your parent site. Is there an additional boost once you hit 10k or trusted (20k)?
@SPArchaeologist Edited title to reflect issue
 
@LynnCrumbling Nope - it's just 100 if you're 200+ on another site...
 
@JonClements Wonder if there's been a asked about it on se's meta.
@JonClements At the very least, a 20k user seems tantamount to the bbs days of a visiting sysop.
 
I don't recall seeing one. However, I think the idea is to just get you past the new user restrictions. Not to boost you to other privs - as by working your way through rep on the other site, you'll learning how the other community works etc... It'd be unfair to be a trusted SO user and then join another site and suddenly get full edit privs or something...
 
4:25 PM
@JonClements That's fair, especially given that some sites allow pseudo-subjective questions, and uses on [SO, SU, database, etc] may be unaware of that site's policy.
 
If for instance a trusted user came over from Sci-fi and fantasy - their vast rep related to Harry Potter probably doesn't make them suited to start closing my field of expertise on SO,,, :p
