Seasoned editor can fix indents with 4-space copy & paste quickly.
 
6:02 PM
Doesn't really get difficult mentally aligning everything in mind and then making the arrangement in mind come true after much editing.
@AndrewT. Also, place full stop (or whatever character your fingers are on) in front, ctrl + k the entire block, and it's lifted.
Repeat, then get rid of the full stops.
 
If the code blocks are aligned by two, open up regex101.com and write a quick regex.
 
TIL :)

6:05 PM
@AndrewT. You can also ctrl+k to drop down by four spaces (though tabs makes it tricky) if every line in your selection has those trending spaces.
 
That one I already know, and it's very useful to remove extraneous indents due to copy-pasting code directly from IDE :)
 
At some point I stopped using my IDE altogether when writing answers. :p

Q: What privilege should 30k users get?

Jon EricsonThe last time we lifted the level cap was in 2011. Last year, we added a unilateral close-as-duplicate power for gold tag badge holders, but no new reputation level. So we've been thinking about giving users more reasons to keep playing. (I've answered this question with some circumstantial evide...

How nice of Jon to bring this up, even though he doesn't have 30K anywhere.

@Unihedro actually, this is a bug. :P
wait, nevermind.
 
user259867
Three groups of 30K users:
(1) those who robotically answer and care little about moderation;
(2) bitter burned-out users who mostly close, delete, and argue on meta;
(3) those five who would actually use extended privileges as designed.
 
Well, kinda.

(I'm in group 2, obviously.)

There are a lot in group 1 and 2.

@nicael just wondering... what did you do on edx-cs169-1x to get suspended for a year? ;p i.stack.imgur.com/C93Ve.png
 
@ᔕᖺᘎᕊ report too many bugs D:
 
@Braiam lol - wouldn't be surprised if that was true! ;p
@Braiam But I can only think of 2 things: he got 50 downvotes and 0 upvotes on something, which led him to a suspension (because he only has 1 rep when he should have 101)
or... he got 6 spam flags which caused him to -100 in rep
@Braiam @nicael never mind - found it ;p i.stack.imgur.com/Y9uK1.png

I was not suspended cuz of serial voting exactly. Read the last sentence of this answer :D

I found bunch of interesting bugs however! :P
 
you constantly find bugs! I do wonder what will happen to you once you've reported every single bug that ever existed ;P
 
Just for fun: wanna see an image of my greatest SanBox™?
 
why not? :P

@AndrewT. same on the other accounts
 
@ᔕᖺᘎᕊ that's just the question; all the voters are my socks :D
 
Next?

etc
accidentally migrated from the local meta, deleted because roomba :D
Also, I had done such funny close notices, that's a pity can't find them now :(

teaches you to screenshot bugs as you find them!
 
@ᔕᖺᘎᕊ in case you don't know, suspended user always has their rep reduced to 1 while in effect. After it's finished, the rep will be restored.
 
don't get how how got 25 votes... you have 25 sockpuppets?

@AndrewT. oh... didn't know that - thanks! (and I -1'd and flagged those posts - just to try the new design effects!)
@AndrewT. thanks again
I should really read everything!
@nicael what was that...? 60!
hmm... i see another suspension coming :P
 
@ᔕᖺᘎᕊ ?

@nicael ?
 
Ah, you mean deleted?
 
yeah
 
:D
 
can mods see deleted chat messages?
 
yes
so what?
 
7:46 PM
nothing, just wondering :)
 
Also, I found out that you can get only one reversal per question
that's practically the reason why I set up all those testing

None. 30k users are no better at moderating than 20k users. In fact I've seen way to many who don't even know the basics of SE principals. New moderator privileges should be rewarded based on moderation experience rather than reputation as reputation does not correlate much with ability to moderate, especially at higher rep levels. — bjb568 2 hours ago

@Braiam Thanks, but auto-completion has been reworked recently (a few months ago) and is now more persistent, and also as far as I'm aware, pings work for longer than auto-completion (at least, before the update, these two were not related).

Does Smokey have email address detection?
 
user259867
It does, but when the email is deep in the post body (not in title or summary), it is fetched through the API, and this has to wait in a queue for another post.

If Smokey had 20000 req/day API quota...

No, wait. There is no email regex. I must have been imagining things.

A: Using a regular expression to validate an email address

bortzmeyerThere is no simple regular expression for this problem: see this fully RFC‑822–compliant regex, which is anything but simple. (It was written before the days of grammatical patterns.) The grammar specified in RFC 5322 is too complicated for primitive regular expressions. The more sophisticated...

 
user259867
I saw those. They talk about edge cases. I'm talking about the sort of emails that appear in SE posts.
 
@pizza Trying to find a good one right now.
good == not too many fp's
 
user259867
 
user259867
It may still be not worth doing because of false positives... because email is often a part of code, a parameter in some request. Excluding code blocks should help, though.
 
@pizza Seems ok - regex101.com/r/aR3aH2/1
@pizza We can try it, & exclude SO... maybe webapps too? shrug

@hichris123 Yes, webapps. And SF too. stackexchange.com/search?q=myaddress@gmail.com

As befits that tongue.
And it is perfect.

user259867
Trading known, very minor limitations of own copy-pasted, but understandable code for unknown bugs in 3rd party library doesn't look appealing.
 
11:40 PM
Not a library.
A regex.
Just one.
But hey, if you don’t need it to be correct, I can make it so simple a 5-year-old can understand it.
And it will be really fast.
And I don’t know what this "3rd party" thing is.
 
@tchrist We're not validating emails here. We're validating spammer emails, which may or may not conform to the RFC.
 
Do you mean mail addresses or mail messages?
 
email addresses.
I think you knew that. ;)
 
Because if you mean addresses, they aren’t going to do much good if they don’t meet the spec.
@hichris123 The e- part of email is an affectation.
 
user259867
Actually, not validating anything, but detecting strings that appear to be email addresses with high probability. The probability of incorrect detection is tiny compared to the probability that the appearance of email has nothing to do with spam or anything worth noticing.
 
11:45 PM
@tchrist You & I know that, but do the spammers know? Doubtful.
 
user259867
The latter probability is high enough so that the regex may still have to be scrapped. We'll see.
 
False positives like...?
Perhaps you need a better regex.
 
@tchrist We won't know until Smokey finds one. :P
 
user259867
@tchrist Like someone talking about proper way of including email on Writers. Or typing it in TeX. Or ...
 
You really are using email to mean (e)mail address instead of message, aren’t you? That’s so weird.

@tchrist awaiting that you post something :P
 
You’ll have to close it first. :)
I meant DELETE votes.
 
ohhh
mmm... you don't have elegible posts :(
 
Funny thing, that.
I do have one, but you aren’t powerful enough.
Plus there’s always the stealth super-protection racket of dup-closing something else to it.
Well, not always. But recently. :)
It’s a comparatively recent deletion rule.
I really wish we had Delete Queues. I swear I cast delete votes on the same posting a dozen times before it goes away.
