[ SmokeDetector ] Pattern-matching website in answer: inline form parts using CSS (inline attribute)? by Raja Jeni on stackoverflow.com
^ looks like spam.
1:27 PM
with an upvote...
@Uniforms probably yes flag a post with a custom flag, I think a bit of language in a user's profile is OK but not the name because everyone sees it when viewing posts
@UniformsForSale Are you going to flag all of these too?
Aug 14 at 1:46, by Mysticial
And if someone legitimately takes offense to casual use of the word "fuck", the internet is probably not the best place for them.
1:52 PM
I think there was something in the meta about this.
Can't really find anything official but here's a related post: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/117596/…
@AwesomePoodles Destroyed
@SmokeDetector why
@UniformsForSale Body - Position 1278-1284: gratis
Hello @TimStone
Searches for meaning
1:58 PM
@SmokeDetector fp- gratis
> gratis/ˈɡratɪs,ˈɡrɑː-,ˈɡreɪ-/

without charge; free.
Ummm ok
Maybe it's something found a lot in the Stack Overflow em Português's spam.
I thought it would have Portuguese origin.
@ProgramFOX Checking through the logs, I think the gratis check is causing a lot of FPs nowadays (spammers seem to have moved on)
2:04 PM
@Normal ^
currently it seems I am unable to upload text on chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/25118/the-bikeshed
Is it your internet?
2:27 PM
Probably just a temporary internet drop
@UniformsForSale I've tried many times
Try reloading the page
@KevinBrown Also tried
Just wait for a while
2:27 PM
@Pandya Close the tab, clear cache, try again.
@UniformsForSale I come bearing a rare peek at moderator tooling!
Q: Mod menu in review queues looks weird

UndoWhen I try to use the mod link in the right-hand side of the review queue (close votes in this case), the mod menu is all greyed out and weird. Compare a 'normal' menu on a post: And one from review: It almost looks like the options are disabled, but they aren't. This is disorientin...

Usually to reload w/o cache do this:
Perhaps If I crossed text-size upload limit ?
Ctrl + F5
Can't be
Thats 3000 characters
@Pandya No.

[ SmokeDetector ] All-caps title: IPHONE 5 SERIES by Linda Murphy on apple.stackexchange.com
What a magnificent title!
@inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M Also tried still:
Then it's your internet.
@SmokeDetector Incredibly broad question right there
@KevinBrown The irony, last sentence in question is "Please be specific if possible"
2:34 PM
What a surprise I can write another text successfully but only not that?
posted here instead:
Oh! Here also unable to post that text!!!!
@Pandya That room must be loading something your internet can't (or hasn't) load. Oh!
That's weird.
@Pandya I'd make a joke about governments blocking "freedoms", but it'd be awful if that was really the case here
Try yourself to post this ; can you?
Correction: I want to say freedoms 0 and 2 are important for them, And 1 and 3 seems meaningless as I explained
Correction: I want to say freedoms 0 and 2 are important for them, And 1 and 3 seems meaningless as I explained
2:37 PM
@UniformsForSale For me unable:
And my gov. is Iran here @Kev. It can't be that/
(They love blocking things)
Correction: I want to say freedoms 0 and 2 are important for them, And 1 and 3 seems meaningless as I explained
mm... you are tripping a firewall?
Oh no, There is still issue without including freedom:
Next candidate: meaningless
What is going wrong with me!?
2:42 PM
Eventually, you'll end up with
@KevinBrown still no success :P
Q: 10 Million Questions - Let's Share Some Stories That the Number Doesn't Convey

Tim PostIt's easy to look at numbers; numbers tell us that billions of developers have been helped by what we built. That alone is very warming and makes us feel exceptionally great about what we're doing, wouldn't it be nice to take a little time on a Friday to share some stories that the numbers can't ...

Wait . . . Type out the message without copy-pasting it @Pan and tell me what you have.
2:45 PM
@inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M I've recently tried that also with failure!
@Pan I found the solution!
@Pandya Getting anything special showing up in the network requests tab of your dev tools?
@inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M what?
@Pandya Don't type the effing message!
@inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M mean while I used your message
2:48 PM
@SmokeDetector why
@KevinBrown Body - Position 1206-1215: facts.org
:3862884 fp- seafoodhealthfacts.org was caught as facts.org
@Pandya The smart will find their way out.
@UniformsForSale @KevinBrown @inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M Let's not waste our time in troubleshooting it. I felt one mysterious thing today!
Well ummm ok
2:51 PM
@Pandya You're haunted.
This is to inform you that I was not playing a game.
good bye
Look at the right
3:44 PM
@KevinBrown I know it's been a problem for some time. I'd like to try salvaging a weak keyword with a length restriction, for example ^.{0,42}gratis.{0,42}$
So that it would still match titles and short posts.
False positive are not very short, are they? Undecided on the length to put in.
Maybe 100 left and right. If this doesn't help, then the keyword is unsalvageable.

@SmokeDetector tpu-
4:00 PM
Today's xkcd comic (Kitchen Tips):
If this works, then maybe "brain power" and "nike", two other common sources of fps, can be similarly restricted.
4:24 PM
Isn't it odd that chat notifications propagate to sites (sometimes), but site notifications are never shown in chat?
It doesn't seem too complicated to implement, there's already a websocket for inbox.
It's odd when I get pinged in the main site for a chat message I've replied to an hour ago.
@NormalHuman Not disagreeing with the idea, but where would you put the notification in chat?
@Andy Outside the computer screen.
Maybe also in a corner of the profile icon, where chat notifications and flags already appear, distinguished by colors. Perhaps in another corner.
4:34 PM
I'm talking just about a notification "you have something unread", not the actual text.
Also, I had some success with putting extra information in the sidebar column of the chat, above the room name: new text pushes down the content of that column. Not a great design, but perfectly functional.
4:45 PM
@TimStone , Thanks!
FTR, looks like it lasted about 5.5 hours.
5:03 PM
Yeah, they posted it not too long after I went to sleep (of course)
[ SmokeDetector ] All-caps title, repeating characters in title: HEEEELLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPPP :D by masinac on math.stackexchange.com
Does anyone know JavaScript? I'm trying to make a countdown.
So my question is how to set a data with a given time zone
@Moshe If you have some Date/time target in mind, you can convert it into millisecond count with Date.parse, and then compare the result of Date.now() to determine how much time is left.
5:20 PM
@bjb568 knows javascript ^^
5:36 PM
[ SmokeDetector ] Bad keyword in body: Suche eine umfassende Datenbank aller deutschen Wörter by Nearoo on german.stackexchange.com
@SmokeDetector why
!!/test €
> Would not be caught for title, body and username.
@SmokeDetector ignore- no idea why
5:57 PM
@SmokeDetector fp-
@SmokeDetector del rolled back already
@SmokeDetector fp- Okay, testo- needs to be reworked.
testo[sx] should be better.
6:41 PM
@Moshe JS supports the ISO time string format
Just new Date('2015-08-21T14:43+04')
someone besides me is taking a picture with its cellphone of whatever they found in their screen... I'm no longer in wonder
@bjb568 Not all browsers do (like mobile safari)
Well, my browser seems to like:
new Date('2015-08-21T14:43+04:00')

Q: Let's move some negatively scored answers from the top spot

bluefeetInternally, we've been discussing how we can deal with obsolete or out-of-date answers. A few weeks ago, I requested some feedback on how to encourage edits to these types of answers, while I'm still wading through everything on that post but now I'm focusing my attention on the problem of negat...

7:43 PM
@KevinBrown Wow. That was an ES5 feature...
@hichris123 I haven't found a browser that can't parse RFC 2822 (which I hate), but I've found multiple that fail with ISO 8601
@NormalHuman User removed from blacklist (5029672 on stackoverflow.com).
Threw a tantrum once, but this isn't a reason to keep them blacklisted.
we really need to work together on these lists
@SmokeDetector weird, why was that pushed up?
8:06 PM
@Braiam All I can tell is that the user was active at the time it got pushed, but aside from that I can't find the trigger
Why was I "invited to join this chat"?
@HDE226868 it was me! I was saying that was a good question! It could act as a signpost! :)
@ᔕᖺᘎᕊ It was a dupe, though.
dupes aren't necessarily bad... but I guess it's your choice!
8:15 PM
Just use this as a signpost:
Q: Should 'best answer' be replaced with 'helpful answer'?

ProgramFOXWhen you hover with your mouse on the green accept mark on an answer, you get the tooltip The question owner accepted this as the best answer Shouldn't it be: The question owner accepted this answer as helpful Because on the StackOverflow About Page, you can read: Accepting does...

Literally the same wording.
lol ok I +1'd that anyway...
Same here. . .
@HDE226868 btw does the notification not say who invited you??
@ᔕᖺᘎᕊ It says nothing, which is odd.
That is odd... I'd have thought it would at least say my username!
8:18 PM
It was literally just

The about/team page got redesigned: stackexchange.com/about/team
hmm... I'm gonna check if there's a feature request somewhere
@NormalHuman nice! It looks much better than before! :)
8:33 PM
Why do they even bother editing spam into posts as an anonymous user?
That's even less productive than posting a new question, as the only people that will see it are the three reviewers clicking reject.
@durron597 I guess they hope they get approved... which is unlikely to happen even while there's sometimes one robo-reviewer who actually approves such a spam edit.
@durron597 Oh... I thought you were talking about SO. No, on MSE I don't think there are any robos around.
@ProgramFOX exactly
@NormalHuman Shows you just how many people are on Careers.
8:44 PM
Guyses do you know a place I can paste my draft in to see how many chars it occupies?
I'm writing an answer, and I worry 30000 limit might strike me.
Google Drive.
Ahh, Google drive it is!
I hate word and will retain my not touching that shortcut streak for a little longer.
@hichris123 Also breaks the thing I made for alerts about changes on that page.
... how can you hate Word? i mean, it has clippy...
@NormalHuman C'est la vie.

A: Private Beta Evaluation — Our private beta clashed with SIGGRAPH 2015

Robert CartainoThe site was off to a strong start, but participation fell off a cliff about a week in. Was it the SIGGRAPH conference? Or maybe there are other SE sites these question can be asked. Apparently this is a duplicate We extended the private beta until next week to see if usage picks up somewhat, o...

It looks like someone didn't get the memo and tarballed the site anyway.

[ SmokeDetector ] Few unique characters in answer: How to develop plugins for the native Android browser by Google on stackoverflow.com
@SmokeDetector naa? Maybe realized it's wrong and self-deleted the content. An unregistered user, so can't delete the post.
@SmokeDetector NAA
New about/team page no longer lists anyone's location. :/
And the silly animations are gone.
I don't understand why stackexchange.com/about/performance is not linked from other tabs on /about. Looks like it's forgotten. Was there a report?
9:48 PM
@SmokeDetector fp-
@NormalHuman the long-term plan was to make it fed by live data; AFAIK, that isn't completed.
I see, it's still a private beta.
Speaking of which, Computer Graphics is back from the dead.

This answer is completely unhelpful. — bjb568 12 secs ago
old posts…
@bjb568 And yet, zero downvotes
Must not be that unhelpful.
I don't downvote answers. If I did, I would lose 20 rep every day.
@bjb568 So?
@bjb568 Just answer one question well, boom, at least 20 rep.
10:33 PM
@durron597 The only questions I find that I like are the GR questions that I write. But then the answer is CW. And people didn't like my last GR, too GRy they say.
@bjb568 GR?
