Thanks for the info Quill! It's good to know.
 
Good to know eh ... I think @Martin is trying to post spam. Sneaky ... :p
 
Lol! No. I flagged a post a spam on MathOverflow. I just came here to check whether it was reported by SD. This is the link but it has been deleted now: mathoverflow.net/questions/169266/…
 
Might have been one of the (removed) entries
 
7:19 AM
The body of the message contained latestdatabase.com if that's relevant.
@Bart Yes. That's possible. I guess room owners or mods can check whether it was indeed the case.
I guess the messages by SD are removed if the post is deleted within the grace period, right? (I mean if the message is not too old to be deleted in chat at the time the post is deleted.)

First regex question..... waits for it to get closed immediately
 
So... new "idea" from a customer.
"Can we make it so we don't need to specify this required field?"
"Well... we will just make it not required then"
"Nonono, you don't get it... The field is still required, but we can skip it"

Suspensions are over by now, but most of them never came back to the site.

@Mast I get the feeling it was a broad effect and a few users were just caught as collateral damage
 
user315433
Yes, an obvious concern is not losing a bunch of highly productive users over imaginary points.
 
@Quill Now I wonder whether they'll pull the same thing on other SE sites.

@Mast IMO it's better off without a few overly eager homework-helpers. But it's just me...
 
Hey @Shog9, any word on similar effects on other sites?
 
user202362
teachers & tutors help with homework questions too ... not the main point here of course ...

By "overly eager" I meant flooding the site with cookie-cutter solutions to calculus and college algebra problems, matching a similar flood of do-my-homework questions.

user315433
(Which I consider to be a high percentage).
 
Yeah, they're a bit lenient on rude/abusive flags, I hear
 
user315433
Actually, that's 4 declined NAA flags + 3 declined abusive flags.
 
11:57 AM
Each SE is different.
As long as mods will be volunteers and not SE employees, it will stay this way.
 
That usually doesn't change the content of the abusive flags
and the mods are open to suggestions and improvement
 
user315433
All Apple mods are mods since at least 2013. And users don't seem to review much in the LQRQ: according to apple.stackexchange.com/review/low-quality-posts/stats there were 6 reviews today so far, that is in 12 hours.
 
user315433
It's a pretty stable arrangement at this point.
 
user315433
Those 6 reviews are from 2 users... nothing is very likely to get the necessary number of recommend-deletion votes (6) on that site.

Q: Something's wrong with excavating

nicaelThe excavator has been awarded to... many users just some time ago. What a... bug? Certainly it is, too many unavailable posts :D

 
I just got Marshall, twice, on sites I already had it on.
Problems, we have some.
 
So the general consensus is that there's something wrong with badges right now?
 
8:14 PM
Suuuuuper wrong.
 
Because I just got marshal on SO but have more than 500 helpful flags
 
Hmm. It looks like this is actually my second marshal
But I don't have enough flags to get two badges
 
and the condition isn't "for each 500 helpful flags" either
 
So many badges... *drowns*
(I'm now up to triple Marshall on SO. I'm just that good.)

yeah, I just got my third on Code Review
 
Yep, just got another
