12:03 AM
now that my smokey PR nears a close... I think it's time for a devdoodle PR
 
:D
 
12:24 AM
@Quill Hold your horses... you still haven't addressed my 80 chars comment. ;)
 
12:37 AM
you just want devdoodle not to progress ;)
 
user202362
Horses? You mean 'hold your ponies'
 
I just found a business card to a nightclub in my wallet o_O
@hichris123 yeah, my laptop died while I was writing the response <_< (we're in the middle of moving house and the power only just got turned on
 
Maybe you should be moving in instead of chatting. ;P
 
ooh, I'm only 40 off 2k rep here :D
 
Yeah, looking through @Quill, there's quite a few places where it would look much better to stay on one line. For instance: github.com/Charcoal-SE/SmokeDetector/pull/159/… (also why the format there? Makes it harder to understand at a glance)
Also say with github.com/Charcoal-SE/SmokeDetector/pull/159/…, that looks much better as-is.
 
12:51 AM
@hichris123 I could condense that one (as for the indent that was a flake8 warning otherwise)
@hichris123 are you saying my version looks better or the original (cause I'm a little confused)
 
The original.
Also with github.com/Charcoal-SE/SmokeDetector/pull/159/… I don't see the need for the change. tl;dr it seems like there's a lot of unnecessary linebreak adding. ;)
 
it's a cleanup, that's the idea :p
 
But it's perfectly valid stylistically. And it doesn't seem to enhance readability.
Everything passes PEP8 (except for the 80 chars bit, but 80 char restrictions are annoying). The naming changes are good, but changing style and not enhancing readability doesn't seem to help.
 
code styles and readability are opinion at their core... I just share the group of opinion that thinks a dictionaries properties should be on new lines each if there's more than one
 
And that's a valid opinion, if it makes the code easier to understand. But with that, it doesn't seem to make it any quicker to parse or easier to understand.

regex replace is beautiful in atom: Thread\(\n[ ]+target=(.*)\n[ ]+args=\((.*)\)\n[ ]+\)

haha I got in a docstring conversation once before from the other side of the coin
""" are reserved for docstrings and should not be used for multi-line strings? Do you have any other source for this suggestion? Multiline strings are quite handy to use, I don't know why I should stop using them. — sebix Sep 5 '15 at 15:59
 
@Quill You missed the ones in the other files. :P

@PhMgBr and a woman?
 
@ShadowWizard I think @rene's wife will not allow that.
 
I don't think @rene has a wife. :/
 
11:32 AM
He'll have one one day
 
@PhMgBr umm... can't be sure. Many people live happily ever after without a wife, so @rene can be one of them... ;)
 
But flowers need to . . . you know . . . not get extinct
Esp. the blurry type.
He's one of the few of his kind.
OK damn you @Sha

@PhMg you see, @rene is a happy flower. Why become unhappy? ;)
 
@ShadowWizard As a 17-yo, I've heard women are the only misery men love to have in life.
 
@PhMgBr you missed the "some" before the "men" part. :D
 
11:59 AM
@ShadowWizard Are you one of those men?
 
@PhMgBr too late for me... already married.... ;)
 
poor @ShadowWizard ...
 
poor @rene ...
 
@ShadowWizard No, I mean are you one of those men that love the misery of a company?

@PhMgBr oh. Well.... umm.... no comment

@balpha there appears to be a bug affecting display name of lots of users all over SE:
2
Q: Why is my profile messed up on a single site and how can I revert it?

FiksdalI thought about asking this on the meta of the SE site in question. But this seems to be an issue with SE itself, not that particular site. Also, the site is in beta and I don't really think there's a lot of people in there who can answer. I was just asking a question on Gardening SE and suddenl...

e.g.
And hundreds more.
Looks like some internal GUID leaking somehow into the display names.
Can this please get some attention?

Where is the abuse in editing a self-deleted question? — sth Jan 16 '15 at 22:56
@sth - write a question, delete, edit into spam the next day, undelete. Doesn't show up on the front page or most other lists, thus evades detection. — Oded ♦ Jan 17 '15 at 7:27
Blame Oded.
 
user315433
Write a question with an answer, delete question, edit answer into spam the next day, undelete question.

Does undeleting an answer bump the question?
 
user315433
Let's try it...
 
user315433
@hichris123 It doesn't: I undeleted my answer to this question but the activity timestamp has not changed.
 
Then that whole line of reasoning seems flawed... that means the behavior is exactly the same for answers & questions.

This should be shown in a banner on the site. It is unacceptable to confuse "real" users in this manner while hiding away the reason in some Meta.SE answer somewhere that they're never going to find. What an abysmal user experience. — Lightness Races in Orbit 8 hours ago
 
user315433
It could be featured... except it's probably impossible to feature a post on Meta.SE only, without it getting everywhere.
 
8:07 PM
@sandwich it was shown in a banner ... they can still re-consider using my banner script.
 
Maybe it needs another bounty...
 
That is bounty abuse
 
It's a good userscript. :P
 
It sure is! My best work of art so far ...
 
8:40 PM
Yeah, @ShadowWizard it has commands... stop is the one you're looking for
I was gone for like four hours and they managed to crash my bot like a trillion times in SE chat, and you guys got pissed at it

9:15 PM
@rene Whatever happened to the auto-comment discussion? It looks like it's still being posted...
 
@hichris123 yes, we didn't get reprimanded but the newer version is not created yet and I'm slacking to find out what the conclusion is of my evaluation post. That will open up the road to write the faq-proposed.
So, you'll keep seeing these
Down vote my answer on Sunshine's post if you want something else
 
... doesn't it seem like a better idea to stop posting the comment until a new comment is generated (or scrapped altogether)?
(also, what post?)
-14
Q: Flag declined - so is it OK for a chat room to post same canned comments on every single post in a tag?

SunshineFor the tag burninate-request , a certain chat room posts a robotic canned comment for every-single-post-in-the-tag. Is it appropiate for a chat room to do so? Can it go mass commenting promoting their chat room on all posts for a tag of their choice? As per my understanding, an OP who has 100k...

ah
> Tl;dr - the comment emerged as a reaction on several incidents with burnination retags. The comment should serve as a precaution for visitors of burnination request. If the meta-crowd feels they rather deal with the incidents or have a better idea, we're happy to stop posting the noise all together.
I think you're way overthinking the problem here...
 
-14, so we have community support ;) but I expect 14 socvr regulars down voted that so as Shog9 says: Drawing a conclusion only on voting is ... not good
 
Suggested Edits frequently is full of poor edits.
 
@hichris123 yes, but not all are started due to a meta post ...
 
9:21 PM
I don't think almost any are...

Is there already news about the new revision of the burnination warning comment @Kyll and @TylerH promised to work on?
 
@Quill nah, don't really care myself, just felt like Smokey all over again, before the new restrictions.
 
@hichris123 care to write an answer then?
 
ha no.
 
Because now it is just a discussion in chat
 
9:25 PM
Yeah, that's kind of the point... y'all are the ones posting the comments...
 
user315433
I used to worry about bad tags (well, homework tag on Math was something worth worrying, and there are still a couple maybe). But these requests like removing-whitespace... should be tagged with

PSA: The flag bot now listens to commands in here, however, they're very very limited. they are stop, restart and listFlagCount. To invoke the bot, do @Quill followed by the command name
 
As you can see, it gets to 70 on a normal day anyway...
(and no one complains)
 
9:28 PM
@hichris123 so your take on it is: don't post any comment at all, just deal with it when stuff happens
anyway. I'm out for the night ....
 
later @rene

@rene yeah, pretty much. I don't think this is anywhere near as common as you all think.

I don't remember anyone specifically teaching me to debug code. Having a fun project but no Internet to dump questions on somehow did it.
 
user315433
"A[0][0] and A[0][1] are defined but A[0][2] is not, any idea of why that could be?". A great mystery indeed.
 
in my classes, they don't teach us how to debug our code. I'd imagine when most people are taught how to debug, they'd be a junior
 
10:58 PM
Bah, you can't teach people to debug. Actual programmers (as opposed to copy-paste coders) naturally seek to understand the code and debugging it comes tacitly from that.
I remember back when I was screwing with ActionScript. I debugged and experimented from the start. If people don't do this automatically, they never really will.

So my university is hosting a "50 years of gaming history" event where they got a bunch of game consoles and "industry speakers"... And there's pizza too...
