they can haz a bug.

Still don't like the color of the bulletin. Too aggressive for this much screen area.

A: Markdown in chat fails for multi-line messages

Rebecca ChernoffIt is basically assumed that if you have something that is multi-line, you're either pasting a block of text and submitting it, or you're posting a block of code and the whole thing is going to be fixed-font/code.

in CoGro Musings, 9 hours ago, by Tim Post
I'm really delighted to see the new Cogro Ops Specialists dig in and start writing replies. What they're doing was something that was added on to our jobs, but not really part of it, it just fell on our team to do, so we did it, and we basically just tried our best to get through our turns. For these folks, it's their main job and they're taking a lot of ownership in it. Replies much more thoughtful than we usually wrote, and great attention to detail.

in CoGro Musings, 9 hours ago, by Tim Post
Now, we're known for really good user support, a lot of folks have said they don't expect our level of service even when they pay for products. But these two are raising that up even more, which makes me happy. They can afford to take the time and really listen, which means if you order two cakes from us and want happy birthday written on both of them, you're much less likely to get this:

Q: Major design updates are now live!

Kurtis BeaversToday we moved the site's CSS to a newly refactored LESS system so that it's easier for us to fix SE network CSS bugs globally and launch new features in the future! The updates also allow us to use SVG for retina support. But while we were in there, we thought it would be a good idea to update...

OOO those voting animations!!!
 
user259867
@nicael UPVOTE ALL THE THINGS
 
@pizza nah.
yesterday, by Shog9
I'd blame myself, but that's what @animuson is for now
 
@pizza Wait, I found a bug in you. Since when "upvote" is the rule for you rather then "downvote"? :P
(Great you have been changed :D)
 
user259867
@nicael The message referred to you. And you don't have 125 on Android. :P
 
user259867
9:35 PM
My record there is 42 up 40 down. I wish I could upvote more, but I usually have no clue to whether the proposed solutions work.
 
But I can still click the downvote, the animations happen regardless of the fact you vote or not :p
 
Interesting, webfonts showing as . in DevTools. .—72 glyphs
That roboto is nice, though.
@pizza The animation is working fine here...
 
user259867
It works, just shows warning in DevTools (Chrome 41) when inspecting the CSS properties.
 
Hrm not in 42.
 
user259867
@hichris123 It's only if :hover or :active is forced on the element. According to caniuse, Chrome has the prefixed version only up to and including 42. Unprefixed in 43.

I need some advice, I could go for NAA here apple.stackexchange.com/a/179361/55266 but inspecting the link IMHO could also be seen as abuse or spam IMHO ?

Maybe add a link to comments?
 
I thought the >=20k was like a guideline
 
And bluefeet has a 40/40. Of course.
 
user259867
Reputation 20K+ would be better.
 
@hichris123 I see 27/40
 
10:21 PM
Maybe add upvote:downvote ('d) ratio?
 
@Undo ...?
 
Maybe add how many steward badges?
 
user259867
@bjb568 Better not, knowing how voters react to those stats.
 
gah, singular foot, plural feet, whatever.
 
@pizza I mean the votes on the posts, not votes cast.
 
10:22 PM
 
Maybe add net bounty rep?
 
@Undo ^^
 
I feel like the whole thing could be put into a to-be-mod review dashboard with a bunch of widgets and charts and graphs and dataz.
 
user259867
@bjb568 Which would not do much for regular voters.
 
Gah, require steward somewhere on the network to vote at all :p

But without much detail, so I guess there couldn't be questions about it until now...
 
@pizza Announced at I/O, IIRC. Which was end of June.
 
@pizza seems like a new design for user cards in the mod election?
 
user259867
@nicael Yes, that's what it is.
 
user259867
The purpose being to display mod-related accomplishments of the user in an easily digestible form.

user259867
@Shog9 On the previous SO election page the candidate scores are wrong now: some badges are missing. There is no Deputy for bluefeet (!) and nobody has more than 2 participation badges.
 
@pizza yeah, something is broken. We're investigating.
 
Oh wow that's fancy

By which I mean, "I'm waiting for the guy who wrote it to wake up so I can run around screaming with my hands in the air"
 
woah the rep display is awesome. Exactly what I was thinking, actually:
Mar 17 at 21:07, by Doorknob
A thought I've had for a while now but also never have gotten around to posting is that perhaps for users running for mod, only their rep "bracket" (20k+, 15k-20k, 10k-15k, etc.) should be shown (site-wide).
 
Because that's how I fix things now. I really love being a normal user.
 
user259867
Usability testing: I find myself wondering which badges are counted in which category, and looking for a link that would explain that.
 
user259867
I see the tooltip with earned badges, but that's just the visible side of it. When it's 1/6, I wonder what's lacking.
 
11:02 PM
@Undo Same place.
 
I think it's borked
 
I think so too. @Shog9 can we double the screaming?
 
user259867
Especially because the bug makes @hichris123's candidate card look so pathetic...

@hichris123 you can hate with passion, but with a passion????

Q: How Does A Stack Overflow Occur and How Do You Prevent It?

JasonMichaelHow does a stack overflow occurs and what are the best ways to make sure it doesn't happen, or ways to prevent one - particularly on web servers, but other examples would be interesting, as well.

 
11:16 PM
@Braiam Apparently this is slang. Huh. Urban Dictionary has a page on it... but it's Urban.
@Shog9 "How do I prevent a Stack Overflow error" asks a question on Stack Overflow. Are we meta enough?
 
no. We need to figure out how to cause a Stack Overflow on Stack Overflow by viewing the Stack Overflow question on Stack Overflow.
