MWAHAHAHA!
 
@JasonC Problem solved.
Now no matter what you want, the regex picks it up. Problem?

Enjoy the sweet taste of your shallow victory. For now.
 
@JasonC I will (enjoy this victory|use regexes in all my future posts)[\!\.]
 
Do I get to pick the expansion?
 
@JasonC What do you mean?

Oh right, terminal prompts.
I think from now on a regex should be required in every m[ae]ssage, and the reader has to pick exactly one match.
 
@JasonC OK. Could you (not blow up Earth|pass me that fire extinguisher|watch as the hilarity begins)?
 
cv-pls stackoverflow.com/q/325558/1699210 maybe a lock candidate?
 
@bummi Lock/close as "This question kept for historical significance, but is not a good question and don't ask other like it"?
 
5:25 PM
I make no guarantees on the first, physically I can't pass you a fire extinguisher, so I shall watch the ensuing hilarity. /(Incidentally, farts are hilarious\.)?/
@bummi Is it's close/reopen/delete/undelete status in contention? Is it receiving a problematic number of new answers, comments, or other activity? If not, maybe still a candidate but not necessarily a (compelling|urgent) one.

@ASCIIThenANSI yes, not sure if it should be kept, I think the first step is to close it?
 
@bummi (Sound|Seem)s like a good idea.
 
well i was in this room and suddenly it became read only why did it happen?
 
@ASCIIThenANSI No( thanks)?\.
@Rememberme Which room? This one?

Oh, cool, didn't notice yet that @JasonC got RO status. Congrats!
 
@ProgramFOX it's a punishment :P
 
Lol thanks, maybe.

:p
 
16 hours ago, by Shog9
@JasonC Also, since it's my weekend and you bothered me with this, you now have to deal with it yourself.
 
@JasonC Can I has RO? :)
 
@Rememberme What'd you say right after this? You were suspended for 30 minutes for it
 
@Andy you're a mod, you can look
 
That suspension looks like it ends in less than 10 minutes
 
5:39 PM
Ah good find. I was looking around for some hints.
 
@Undo Yes, I know. I want him to realize what he said. It was a rhetorical question
 
oh, okay :P
 
I forgot to add the rhetorical markup. Entirely my fault.
 
@Rememberme In that case, just learn from it and continue chatting respectfully once you can chat again. I recommend not complaining about it, just look at it as a learning experience. When you're in somebody else's house, you follow their rules. :)
I'm kind of disappointed, I was genuinely hoping that my edit at meta.stackexchange.com/questions/256580 would save the guy a few downvotes (not that he didn't deserve them). Guess that post is doomed. Either that or I accidentally made it worse somehow.
 
5:48 PM
Haha, yes.
 
Admit it everyone - you clicked that link, and when it was over, you watched it again.
 
@Rememberme, your ban has expired. See @JasonC's post for some good advice before rejoining that room
@ASCIIThenANSI I'll admit to that
 
@Andy We need a tag, for when posts like that happen.
 
Or:
status-gir
 
status-it-has-to-be-the-only-thing-in-your-message
 
5:51 PM
The wiki excerpt has to be a link to that youtube video
 
So this [status-does-not-work]
 
@JasonC The tag wiki would read something like:
 
Ah ha!
 
> The [status-gir] tag is for when posts are, well, doomed.
The word 'doomed' is a link to the video
 
Also, if at any point one of your posts receives , all of your posts automatically receive that tag from then on.
 
5:54 PM
@JasonC What if it's just one bad post? Are you still (doom-){0,99}doomed?
 
@ASCIIThenANSI Yes, you (are|suck).
 
@JasonC No(o){0,9001}!

You could edit out the contact info, but then it would just be VLQ or even NAA.

@LynnCrumbling Not spam. Candidate for edit. If edit leaves as NAA then also candidate for flag.

@LynnCrumbling I think it can be a valid answer without contact info. Short, but seems to solve the problem.
 
Spam is more for unwarranted promotion of a product.
I don't think that one is NAA. Maybe not a great A, but an A nonetheless.

@rene Editor will get 2 rep for removing "thanks in advance". Is that really the sort of editing we want to encourage ?
 
@JonasCz well, letting it sit in the queue like that is also not worth it, and I find personally thanks in advance a major no-no so if a user is removing that kudos from me.
But everyone is free to feel differently about that
 
I don't really consider it a "major no-no", but fair enough.

Is there a question?
 
no, only a mark

@bummi not sure if I understand badgecount....
 
@rene sorry for being inaccurate. e.g. my interest would be "Marshal on X sites" in relation to "reached by X users", just curious

Does bounty trading seem like an abuse of the reputation system?
 
user259867
@TravisJ It does to me.
 
It seems to be happening here: meta.stackexchange.com/q/239706/178816
 
user259867
Hm, it's the crazy world of meta. If this gets annoying, a mod should cancel the bounty without refund. Is this possible, @hichris123?
 
10:37 PM
I don't think it really matters which exchange it is, it is a bad precedence to set. Basically it allows a post to be placed on the featured list for free, or at least for the one time cost of reputation (even if it were 50) - indefinitely.
 
bjbotling is running
 
user259867
It wouldn't work with 50, because subsequent bounties on the same post must be at least the double of the previous (or 500, whichever is smaller). This is why they are trading 500 rep bounties.
