@Shog9 folks just like to upvote things

STV and all, one should still be wary of putting shoo-in candidates first... they get a sizable portion of the vote, often a half or more, that could be better spent influencing the outcome of the fight for #3.
(Apropos of Law election)
Example: jimsug got 41% of my vote. Of the 59% left, feetwet got 33%. That left only 40% of the vote for Zizouz.
I wonder how voting would be if it only took 15 rep or so to vote

All SO users with an account on the site would get an inbox notification telling them to vote... and you know what happens when they get inbox notifications.
then turn it on for all non SO sites, in any case, it's only a hypothetical ;-)

@redredwine 41% + 33% + 40% > 100%

"Of the 59% left, feetwet got 33%" means about 19% of the original vote
Ohhh. I didn't read that correctly.

@Telkitty don't add that to your CV ...

@Bart It is an achievement ... you might get passed HR with this ... candidates with 5 or more achievements get an invite
Instead of writing a function, I thought I might squeeze everything into a single line. Ended up with 13 compilation errors
you're gonna hate your self if you have a bug in that one-liner next week ...
debugging it would be interesting I could imagine
10:07 AM
I just resolved a fun one myself. Apparently someone inserted critical code as an argument to a debug log statement ... which doesn't get included in release. Grrr
Ok, and what have we just learned? Always release a debug build to production. That will teach you ...
especially with debugging logs
because that would help with your software's performance issue

I assume it was an experiment on a few pages

It seems to be site-wide? Ping a dev perhaps

Not really an experiment, but yes, only done on a few routes.
I've updated the answer.
Thanks :)
Thanks for letting me know :)
Hey Oded (no ping cause CM)
10:32 AM
CM? I'm no CM.
Just a lowly Q&A developer :P

I'm hesitant to ping blue people unless its important
@Oded I fixed the url there, not sure what happened
I should have checked the link. I think I had a ] there before linking - probably threw off the parse.
Thanks for fixing, @rene
@Oded Did you guys ever intend for people to max out all review queues on any given day?
Because atm, depending on what you get to review, thats impossible
I doubt it is intentional. I'd expect there to be limits on each and every queue - so people are forced to take a break.
10:36 AM
@Oded Oh, there are
But if you do 40 CV reviews, it can mean that midway through triage reviews you ran out of close votes, and then you can't review triage to its daily limit
Same for votes with first posts and late answers
Also if you're vote-capped.
Ah - that's lots of features that come together in an unexpected way. But... if it forces one off the queue (and the queue doesn't just keep growing), that's not really a problem.
Treat it as a signal to stop reviews ;)
Where is my god now? :(
The only queue that's a problem there is the close votes queue. And even that is oh so much better than it used to be.

@Oded so other than QA developers, what other developers are there?
@Telkitty Careers, Marketing, Internal, SRE...
More about team association and product focus than actual skills.
@Oded Who is currently working on the docs project of those?
It is part of Q&A - actual team - Jarrod Dixon, Adam Lear and Kevin Montrose, with a bit of help from others as needed.
That explains why we don't see Kevin often on meta.SE these days
oic, alear has become a core developer :p

I wonder Oded, do you get a lot of coaster puns and does it annoy you?
@Telkitty A good while now. Definitely more than a year ago.
@Magisch no, not many. Only you seem to make them.
I can't help myself I love puns too much
Also - in the UK my last name is usually confused with Costa.
@Magisch I get a lot of TIPS puns and I'm not complaining

When you visit faq, your mouse pointer become hand when you mouseover text of the topic which is expandable and it become text-selector on that text of the topic which is not expandable. And if your pointer is hand while mouseover on text, then when you click post is expanded and pointer become text-selector BUT for the last 4th post "Why is my avatar not showing correctly?" it is hand instead of text-selector and remains hand (you've to click title)
Does it happen for you?
Please don't tell me you're gonna report that as a bug.
@TIPS no I'm not... but it seems some undesirable/different right?
Define "problem".
It hasn't killed anyone.
Yes, but meh.
Isn't it unexpected?

I just wanted to discuss in chat to ensure that it is not only for me (Browser problem etc.)
What if it's both browsers' problem? :P
Btw, how about expand indicator (arrow) is missing for two topics? (that has show more link)? I'm going to post on MSE
I knew you'd say that in the end.
You're slightly, playfully, annoying.
12:38 PM
@TIPS no, this is different question
How many people read chat FAQ anyway?
@Pandya What is the question? That two arrows are missing from a page that almost no one reads?
@TIPS I'm talking about "How do I talk?" and "How do I format my messages?" misses arrows
Yes. This issue is very serious and needs immediate medical attention.
you sounds more serious than the issue! :P
OK that's it. I need a nap.

on sunday. i sent a previous message a week before (on sunday) and they answered the following day, so i thought they aren't as busy as people say
It depends I guess. But if Shog doesn't respond here, give it some time.
also, there are other CMs who you can ping too
2:11 PM
and can they see the messages i sent to support?
Yup, but you've pinged one. Unless it's a matter of extreme urgency, just wait.

@ShadowWizard they didn't answer, that's the point
@user1803551 you said "they answered the following day"
2:47 PM
to a different message. read the whole sentence
@user1803551 you said "previous", not "different". I assumed they're both on the same issue.
still doesn't make sense, but doesn't matter
@redredwine Huh. They use GitLab. I thought I'd read somewhere they used GitHub Enterprise.
They are considering switching to GH Enterprise.
@Glorfindel hey, can you please retract the close vote here? Turns out it's a different issue, OP does have the latest version. (see comments)
2:54 PM
@Andy Nick Craver mentioned in a podcast a while ago and I think it was in a few meta posts as well
GitLab can run on a locally-hosted server, but GitHub is hosted solely by GitHub By general rule of thumb: Ignore me, I don't know anything
No, GitHub enterprise is hosted on site

You can just copy from answers here:
Q: Thanking users who answered my question

Richard EverettQuite often a number of users will give similar answers to a question I post on Stack Overflow. Sometimes someone will give an answer that is interesting, but does not really help answer the question. In all cases I feel a need to thank the people who replied to my question. Upvoting their reply...

@ShadowWizard btw, what about thanking for a comment? (the user clarified his answer)
Q: I Desperately need Hacking Services please

Greg MelkonianIn need of a professional hacker for a job. some people have threatened my girlfriend and the only way to get payback is through hacking.

@PichiWuana comments are too minor, just an upvote. And if comment solves someone's problem, it shouldn't be a comment to begin with.
@ShadowWizard should I role back the edit on the former dupe target?
@redredwine tpu
role back? Nope. Maybe roll back... ;)
Now that you reopened and posted answer then yeah, probably for the best.
(though I originally meant the answer should go in the older question... but never mind, not that important)

@Shog Sam mentions here that the suggested edits queue size increased to 200 on Stack Overflow. What is its size on other sites? According to this, the default was 20 across the network, is this still true?
9:11 PM
@ShadowWizard 40
@Shog9 thanks. Is it 40 on all sites except SO?
@ShadowWizard Currently 40 everywhere but SO (where it's 200) and Japanese (where it's 50).
Awesome, lots of editing to do now...
(self note: don't get into such things at 12 AM... :))
@ShadowWizard Not only on Meta but 40*156. ;)
@Shog9 sorry to nag but... Japanese as in Japanese Language, or Japanese.SO?
9:15 PM
huh. OK!
I'd suggest that documenting exceptions like that is probably a waste of time
@Shog9 oh. Why? People want to know...
Hey Shog, Shadow. Thanks for looking into this! Shadow, if you feel so inclined, edit the FAQ here
It's not like it's changing every day. @Shog (so when it's changing, just need to edit)
@JAL yeah, plan on doing that.
9:16 PM
cool, thanks!
@Shog9 thanks for your help on retrocomputing as well!
@ShadowWizard I have no idea why it's 50 on that site. If you can find that out, it might be worth adding a note.
@JAL np
@Shog9 you have better chance of finding by asking those who might actually know... ;)
(e.g. ask in your super secret chat room :))
@ShadowWizard I honestly don't care very much. Presumably they ran into a problem at some point in the long distant past, and that fixed it...
Right now, I'd suggest it's enough to know that,
1) It *can* be changed per-site if needed
2) The default is 40
9:19 PM
@Shog9 sounds like a fair reason. But still, just knowing it's 50 even without knowing why is good enough and better than not knowing at all.
If you wanna add a list of exceptions, ok, but... No guarantees anyone will maintain that.
@Shog9 of course, it wasn't maintained for years. (the default was never edited to be 40)
...which it probably has been for a very long time
9:32 PM
If something doesn't exist, it doesn't need to be maintained.
