CogSci site is refining its target audience, something that Math never wanted to do.

reminds me of marketing courses I had done back in the uni days
 
Sometimes I feel like I'm ugly. But then I think of my brother and get over it
 
user315433
Granted, Math development was influenced by the existence of MathOverflow; having to defend its reason to exist, the site proclaimed itself very very inclusive, so inclusive you won't believe.
 
user202362
Maths is as powerful as an all mighty god who only exists in spirit and can't do anything physical, it needs a body to be able to accomplish anything in the real world. The best body it has is known as physics, but can also be chemistry and other disciplines

I don't wear watches either, one's enough for me. why would you need two?

user202362
I am annoyed - dodo supposed to lodge an application to ausgrid to link the new NMI with the right meter for the new granny flat. It didn't do that, instead, it took the NMI from the old house and applied that. So the people from the new granny flat is paying for both houses, even though 2 meters were allocated for the old house and 1 meter were for the new granny flat. At first I thought I did something wrong so I lodged the application with ausgrid again.
 
user202362
It turns out, dodo as the retailer, is doing it's part wrong
 
user202362
but when I called dodo, they told me that they could not rectify the problem because I am not the account holder
 
user202362
after it told the account holder (people in the granny flat) that I didn't set up the NMI
 
user202362
confirmed with ausgrid, it was set up and ready to do since NOV last year
 
5:50 AM
Dodo are unreliable, we had a bad experience with them before as well
 
user202362
Dodo was just going around in circles and wouldn't admit that it has done the job wrong from the start

Editing in is not trivial, since the answer is supposed explain when to use the features, not just list them. When should a RO use a timeout?

@Shog9 is it by design that an RO doesn't see how much time is left for the timeout? It is a bit of a gamble now how long you have left.

Which is to say, it's that way for mods and I didn't care enough to bother requesting a change to it.

Because hardly any GH questions get answered on Web Applications. We don't have that many active answerers who are also developers.

Bummer. Github support didn't answer me either beyond the automated "thanks for your question" response.
This doesn't feel like an SO question. It's not about a development tool. It's more about the environment the web page runs in. It's not server fault because it's not professional. Maybe Superuser? I have one question on SU and the answer it received pointed me back to SO.

7:45 PM
Observations: (1) freeze/unfreeze does not end a timeout; (2) room owners can see remaining time by opening the room in an incognito tab, which seems simple enough.
 
@Shog9 maybe mention explicitly that RO's can post messages in the room while in timeout? In case you need to tell more then will fit in those 100 chars?
 
> Once a message is entered and "OK" is pressed, the room will be in "timeout" mode: only room owners and moderators will be able to post messages; everyone else will see a countdown where the message input form normally sits
@rene the 100-char limit is mentioned more as a "don't write a book" thing than anything else.
 
Grrr, my and my reading skills. I need @Bart
OK
 
@Shog9 Why does your answer say "timeouts cannot be cancelled"? I could do it by imposing a new timeout with '0' as seconds:

Ah yes, I'm behind the trends in mobile design.
 
realistically, if I need to do anything non-trivial I switch to full-site
mobile theme is nice for reading and simple stuff (comments), but a lot is missing

No, of Shog
 
@Shog9 sounds like the app
@ᴡᴏʀᴅs huh! But... what for? Shog can just set any privilege directly....
 
user315433
Testing something with chat, probably.
 
user315433
Or some nefarious reason we don't know yet...
 
user315433
You overlooked the possibility that I'm just a being of pure evil and enjoy cackling maniacally while perching my hands together with just the tips of the fingers touching, @PM77-1. There may be other possibilities as well, but let's try and focus on the negative here. Or, y'know, ask an actual question if you're unclear about something. — Shog9 ♦ 1 hour ago

@ᴡᴏʀᴅs mysterious are the ways of the Shog.

Q: 2016 Community Moderator Election Results

Jon EricsonPuzzling's first moderator election has come to a close, the votes have been tallied, and the 3 new moderators are: They'll be installed as the moderator team shortly — please thank them for volunteering, and share your assistance and advice with them as they learn the ropes! I personally ...

 
@ShadowWizard I wanted accurate screenshots.
And... It ain't like I don't have plenty of meta questions that need answers.
 
@Shog9 I see. But why posting with the sock? Can't you grant RO even with 1 rep?
 
@ShadowWizard sure. But I had like 5 minutes to kill while I waited for chat's cache to expire.
 
lol, fair enough! :)

@ShadowWizard One of screenshots shows what a normal user sees during a timeout (a counter)
 
user315433
Although it may be from non-logged-in user, not clear.
 
the critical thing was the menus. They're a bit different for mods
Also I hadn't done any testing on it yet, so...
 
@Shog9 I thought we are your testers... ;)
 
I usually at least try to do a cursory test before imposing the resulting bugs on y'all
 
user315433
Also, these days it's about documenting things thoroughly.
 
8:40 PM
@ᴡᴏʀᴅs nope, non that I can see. Unless I missed it?
 
user315433
@ShadowWizard This one, i.stack.imgur.com/18XXR.png
 
@ᴡᴏʀᴅs lol, let's bring Documentation to MSE! :D
 
user315433
ROs and mods don't see the countdown.
 
user315433
MSE is documentation in the parts that work.
 
@ᴡᴏʀᴅs oh, it's an eight?? LOL didn't spot it!
 
8:41 PM
I should've done an animated gif
 
yup
Not too late...
 
you could as well
 
No tools to create a gif :(
 
search Super User

@Shog9 haha, 1:0
 
whatever site has people who know about imagemagick
 
Dishes are waiting for me so maybe when they're clean and shiny. :P
 
user315433
Puzzling election took 21 rounds of STV.
 
@ᴡᴏʀᴅs I guessed the winners before looking at the votes. Those three seemed the obvious choices.
 
user315433
The voters thought 2 were obvious, not so much the 3rd.
 
9:36 PM
spam-ish
probably account hacked.
 
user315433
The user was somewhat unstable at times before.
 
@Jon can you see if the account is hacked? (e.g. different IP)
 
@ShadowWizard I'll take a look. Odd.
 
@JonEricson thanks
status-completed
 
9:56 PM
@ShadowWizard well done.
 
10:10 PM
My pleasure, though I'm afraid all my attempts caused some bells to ring... :D
(ended up using Chrome Capture)
 
10:33 PM
Ooh, room owners can do timeouts now? :D
Someone took my comment seriously.

@Shog9 No, ROs can't do a timeout?
:)
 
Your thoughts on this suggested edit? I kinda feel it may be a bit radical.
OP used .44 Magnum ammo for energy comparison with an 18650 cell. The edit was meant to make it more technically accurate.
