many confuse!
> By far the most masculine form of the English from of 'goodbye'. It comes from the French saying "à tout à l'heure" which sounded like 'Toodle-oo', which was further shortened to 'Toodles'. Used by pro-wrestlers, gangsters, and warlords alike, Toodles is an effective word of parting between men of high stature. Uncultured swines often mistake this word for one of an effeminate, dainty vernacular. These imbeciles are idiotic and probably have bad teeth.
I can't tell who's trolling who there…
12:44 AM
You're quoting from Urban Dictionary? I can't tell you are trolling or not...
@HoboSapiens It will be roomba'd in two hours.
@FamousBlueRaincoat It will now. It had an upvoted answer when I posted this.
@AndrewT. That quote is from urban dict, yes.
hehe, 4 different close reasons
So much creativity wasted on writing close reasons.
The poor OP could not handle this barrage of reasons and self-deleted.

@@bjb568 what is superping
Does @@Roombatron5000 work?
seems like regular ping to me
maybe it's a mod thing
Yeah, it's a mod ping.
Also, what should I do if I encounter this on VLQ queue? Should I recommend deletion? I can't flag it as spam.
Open it and flag spam.
doesn't matter what happens in queue.
1:40 AM
well if it gets deleted before the 6 spam flags or mod flag then it won't count as spam in system i think
@Roombatron5000 yea, if mod deletes, you get a helpful flag
or if its deleted for any reason
It will still be marked as spam.
by the mod
If it is deleted by owner, then fine. Unless it's an answer. Then high rep users can flag it as spam so it won't show
Anyway, I'm bookmarking the search for newest answers on Android. Wish there was something like this cross-sites. Like stackexchange.com/filters but for answers.
what is up with the lighter green color on meta.SO profile page and yellow text
1:44 AM
Yellow text?
I honestly like the lighter green
Where's the yellow text?
@Roombatron5000 ugh.
in the green
1:46 AM
The accepted post... it's new (but in the end, I almost never open MSO profile again)
oh yeah
yellow is a sick color
or highlight
this doesn't appear to be on topic for lifehacks
I just realized you said Meta.SO and not Meta.SE (where they changed the colors recently in the redesign)
There is no workable concept of "on topic" for lifehacks.
1:51 AM
yes there is
@Roombatron5000 yeah, cv
^^^ yes, I thought it was MSE too, and spontaneously opened that site first :O
kewl, didn't know you could make the dragon curve like that
Neat. Wish the colors were calmer.
2:07 AM
Heh, I got Tenacious badge on SO. Relatively rare.
(too lazy to spell out the whole word)
yet you take the effort to type that entire parenthetical statement, thereby nullifying the effort saved by not typing "con" and "ulation"

Nice term, I like it.
3:04 AM
@bjb568 "Please, no more vodka" is translated incorrectly. "нет больше водки" means "there is no more vodka". A refusal to drink more would be "не надо больше водки".
huh okeydokey
<-- does not drink vodka, as a matter of fact
me neither!
I get drunk on reputation.
3:10 AM
And meta points. Especially meta points.
I never drink alcohol.
I drink juice.
I've never had plain banana juice.
I wonder if it's a thing
Sadly, searching that question leads to Yahoo Answers.
No obvious place to ask at SE. Unsure about Seasoned Advice
3:15 AM
I think it'd be on-topic there.
idec really :P
Do it.
> I wonder if it's a thing
There's a [juice] tag.
The answer is likely "pure banana juice is not marketed because it doesn't taste that great".
3:22 AM
It's somehow more about business decisions if I'm asking why it's not sold.
And I wouldn't be asking about how to make it, because I'm not going to.
Seems like it would be really hard to extract the juice - it kind of stays in the pulp
> If you've ever tasted plain banana juice, you're probably familiar with the chalky mouthfeel and bland flavor that normally characterize foods with a lot of starch.
from certain website
> add a bit of amylase
Yeah, I imagine it being a bit like "potato juice"
What are the SE sites with the highest % of NAA answers?
3:29 AM
Maybe Android Enthusiasts, with "I have this issue too, plz halp"
you'd know better than me @Fam
prolly SO
cause it's big
but there are many (serious) answerers on SO, compared to handful answerers in android.se
It seems that Android Enthusiasts is losing the audience to forum.xda-developers.com/android -- or lost it already.

@Frank Most NAAs on SO probably aren't deleted.
Ok, try doing nothing. — bjb568 14 secs ago
Flagged as non constructive.
meh, parenting mods don't like to delete comments
Oh wait, I misread the question.
Ugh, grammar comoplicate.
There are two kinds of NAAs: those that cause meta debates about their answeriness, and those that everyone finds totally useless. The second kind will likely get deleted at SO, as elsewhere on SE.

@Ulkoma I am the author. — Nacib Neme 7 hours ago
One can use SEDE to find such auto-generated comments from reviews, on NAA-flagged answers that were not deleted. And... I don't know, flag them again? Or vote to delete.

Looks reasonable. If I check a top-level box, then check a second level box and uncheck the top-level box, the second-level box remains checked.
Yeah, doesn't matter really tho,
Don't want a misclick to undo everything else down the tree.
Going to bed…

How can I dynamically create an dropdown menu list in JavaScript? I'm sure this has never been asked before...
@Roombatron5000 This is on the main site now (the new shapes, that is – the colors are the same).
Was it just pushed?
@AstroCB Yes, it changed within an hour. the reputation changes are now in the same oddly large boxes.
5:02 AM
The Meta.SO green is certainly something.
do you ever wonder if the designers get together and laugh about how they can mess with our minds with such blatantly irritating changes
I'll have to ask users to not accept my answers, so that I don't get that color on the profile page.

How was this bug still unnoticed?
@nicael They are following ledger conventions: black for profit, red for loss.
Reputation is like money, after all.
My hobby: casting close votes when reviewing answers in LQ queue.
Staying up late while the lazy bot is asleep. :(
A few of my close flags on SO aged away, but not many. I'm still waiting for my first declined or disputed flag on a post.

From you? Never.
Your statement is correct, as it's not the bridge that's pushing the materials - it's the construction job.
And technique used.
But. Semantics. =)
@JanDvorak Make "material" plural because it's a general term.

This is a list of notable and commonly used emoticons or textual portrayals of a writer's moods or facial expressions in the form of icons. The Western use of emoticons is quite different from Eastern usage, and Internet forums, such as 2channel, typically show expressions in their own ways. In recent times, graphic representations, both static and animated, have taken the place of traditional emoticons in the form of icons. These are commonly known as emoji although the term kaomoji is more correct. Emoticons can generally be divided into three groups: Western or horizontal (mainly from America...

Anyone other than me that want an inverted heart and a heart as arrows for upvote and downvote, just to confuse people?

A: I want the old good star back!

AstroCBPersonally, I like the new star because it seems to be a bit cleaner, but I can see from a UX perspective why it may not be as useful as the old button. So, for those of you who hate change (or the lack of circles), here's a userscript that adds the circles back. // ==UserScript== // @name ...

@AstroCB Did you fixed the issue with the padding, or does your userscript still produce output like your pic pasted above ^^
