Since when did the SO shirt change? The one I just got is just the stacks -- no tony the pony or unicorn or anything.
It doesn't even say Stack Overflow on it.
 
What'd you get a shirt for?
 
It's the election swag.

Hm. I guess the message is that the logo is recognizable enough that the name isn't needed.

@hichris123 I don't like it. Neither the post nor the idea of putting it on a t-shirt. It does not send the message "this is a useful resource".

@KevinBrown the exact same body as last time... just that now with a header
 
I never saw it last time :(
 
And if you didn't see it last time... it's just an angry rant about how Taiwan is part of China.
 
@hichris123 that's cause I drew a crappy picture, which naturally deserves more swag than, ya know, participating in democratic community processes.
 
@Undo obviously. :P I'm a little disappointed though... I got a shirt, a mod hat, and stickers. Oh well though.
 
4:15 PM
a mod hat?
 
@hichris123 wow it was so clean back then
 
@hichris123 I didn't get a mod hat :(

@bjb568 In CSS width and height are actual property names. Questions concerning widths and heights may not necessarily relate to those properties, so I feel tags named Height and Width would be more appropriate in this situation. — James Donnelly 10 mins ago
What does he mean, just capitalized?
People who think width should be a tag probably haven't put to much thot into it anyway…
 
whotespace would be a bad tag
What would it mean?
 
@hichris123 DDOS attack from China in 3, 2, 1...
 
agh
somebody post a burninate req for whitespace
 
4:25 PM
@bjb568 No, he's just saying that he thinks width and height should be separate tags from your proposed css-width
 
why not [wh tespace]?
 
Perhaps a synonym between width and css-width?
 
I don't even. width is not a good tag.
 
Useless tags. I'm sure there are many more useful tags that could be applied to the same posts.
 
Why is whitespace good but not width? (Genuinely curious since I'm not a CSS person)
 
4:30 PM
We don't like wh tespace either
 
They're both non-catagorizational.
 
yeah, we don't need tags that don't catagore something
 
@Mysticial Well, at least I think everything is backed by CloudFlare now.

@BoltClock True, but Stack Overflow is now my job (and only job), and we have folks on our ops team to help send it out. I'd hate to miss a chance for everyone to have some fun around a pretty awesome achievement for all of us. — Tim Post ♦ 5 mins ago
 
I would be surprise if it didn't involve unicorns and rainbows.
 
I think Tim heard my cries.
Jun 28 at 15:28, by hichris123
We haven't had a swag contest in a while. :(
So... @1999 when should we expect the 10M'th question?
 
nicael posts question on SO
I answer it
Explodes in popularity. Remains only answer
 
It's a hot question.
What did you do, @BoltClock'saUnicorn????
 
@hichris123 How does a question reach HNQ with just one answer?
 
5:26 PM
Okay, maybe it's not a HNQ.
I can't explain "viewed 4849 times" if it wasn't a HNQ though.
 
Although HNQ is weird... stackoverflow.com/questions/31338934/… hit HNQ even though it's super super simple. I guess that's what a Skeet answer does though.

Would embedding a 1px image with src = questionlink on some popular page drive up the views?
 
Maybe.
 
5:53 PM
@1999 Probably not, referrer checking usually gets in the way.
 
@KevinBrown why referrer?
 
!!/blame
 
@AndrewT. It's SmokeDetector's fault.
 
Would viewing the question in an iframe not drive the views up?
If so, I can't see why it wouldn't work.
 
considering how borked iframes are, I'm not sure
 
5:55 PM
But there is an easy way to find out.
 
Frame busting probably prevents that
 
user259867
Yes, SE content cannot be iframed.
 
@Braiam The referrer will be different if you have a small image driving up views
 
user259867
Why 10 million and not 10*1024^2 ?
 
user259867
Also, I think reaching the number is a cause for lamenting, not celebrating. It means not deleting enough.

Looks good, except I'm not familiar with "".join(match) is this how one converts to a string in Python?
 
@1999 That's how you convert an array/tuple to a string.
The first .join() is since we have two capturing groups, it returns the match as a tuple, the second is to turn all matches into a single string. So array of tuples -> array of strings -> string.
 
user259867
I see, it's the other way around compared to JS [array].join(separator)

@1999 yeah, it's weird.
