What site is the Chat Feedback room attached to?
It doesn't seem to freeze despite inactivity.
Another dev's magic?
It may be the same setup as Charcoal HQ. (But I don't know how that one is set up, either)
@zaq no parent on that one
So, parentless rooms never freeze? Cool.
12:06 AM
@Pëkka Hey, it's been a while since you sent it, but I just want to say that I did get your email, I'm terrible at email, and I'll respond soon as I can. :)
@zaq Apparently?
It's nice of chat devs to look out for orphans, making sure they don't freeze.
It was frozen automatically on Feb, but then how could it become parentless?
Oh my god... I see it now. That room is Batman!

A: How to get one's chat profile deleted?

Shog9As of today, chat accounts will be removed when the last qualifying main-site account is removed. Henceforth, deleting your Stack Overflow account will delete your associated chat account on chat.stackoverflow.com deleting your Meta Stack Exchange account will delete your associated chat accoun...

More deletion for the same price.
Fun fact: the issue with merging in chat is that the code we have there now is crazy bad performance-wise, so we don't want to automatically run it whenever. I have a potential rewrite ready to test, but other stuff keeps coming up that's more important.
Deletions are generally more common than merges, so we can at least make that case better now.
And on that note, I'm out for the night. Have a great $timeofday, Tavern.

@JamesENL Given that this is the last edit I'm not sure the "minor edit" theory holds
sd 3k
@Bart then I'm confused
It's like he submitted an edit twice somehow
7:43 AM
And if I read it correctly, the last edit actually made comes long after the proposed edit. So maybe this larger edit did indeed also fix what the other user fixed, but his proposed edit didn't get invalidated/marked done
It's weird behaviour anyway. It has a pending edit, but apparently I can still edit it as well.
@JamesENL Documentation needs more documentation about how to use it
At least I'm not going crazy, and it was actually worth reporting on Meta
You going crazy and the Documentation behaviour being strange are not mutually exclusive.
@JamesENL you walked too much while catching Pokemons?
7:59 AM
@ShadowWizard I've been playing Ingress for 2.5 years. I've walked way further doing that
Not quite on Black Trekker (2500kms walked), but I have walked more than 1685kms. Ingress doesn't actually measure all walking and doesn't record if you're moving more than 10ish km/h. It only measures the straight line distance between portals (Pokéstops), so in all likelyhood I've walked further than that.

@Undo metasmoke.erwaysoftware.com is down?

@ShadowWizard Yup
@Pro when MetaSmoke is down (like now) what happens to the reports? Is there a queue that will send them later when MS is back up?
They go up in smoke
I know nothing at all about Metasmoke, @Sha.
anyway, it's known that it's down:
in Charcoal HQ on The Stack Exchange Network Chat, 4 hours ago, by undo
metasmoke and everything else on erwaysoftware.com will be down until morning US time, at least. I might be rebuilding everything on 14.04, yay me.
@ProgramFOX of course, but are the reports usually sent to it now lost, or kept somewhere by Smokey?
(i.e. does the code sending them handle errors?)
9:29 AM
I said I don't know anything about Metasmoke. That includes Smokey's code to communicate with Metasmoke. :P

@ mods -- what's the best way to report a Mod for bad behavior if they're not a mod on SO but another exchange?
@SterlingArcher Still "contact us". Why would it differ?
I just created a new account and then requested account recovery. In the email I receive it links to https://stackoverflow.com/account/recover?recoveryToken=%2fGOz... so I have no repro now. Is it possible that you have a local issue or a rogue ISP? Maybe a virus. Try a different computer and/or email client. The domain you linked to is also using an invalid certificate and the domain doesn't look to be registered by Stack Overflow: whois.icann.org/en/lookup?name=stackjava-script.comrene 13 secs ago
@SterlingArcher call them out publicly on Meta, as we like to do with all bad apples?
@SterlingArcher Flame them in chat.
that ^ is also a great option
Also rant on meta.SE.
Make sure to make it really inflammatory.

Don't say we aren't helpful ....
I mean, I was gonna say it but now I can't :(
Nevermind, he was heavy suspended by a mod apparently. They know now lol
@SterlingArcher Cool. I wish all our orders were that effective.
@SterlingArcher A mod suspended by mod?
A mod on Blender. Not a SO mod
I don't even know what Blender is tbh, it sounds like a bad dating app
@rene that is never a solution. Call out behaviour, not people.
@AdamLear oh, we don't like meta drama? Ok, got it. I was joking and I assume / hope @SterlingArcher got that ...

@bjb568 Not impressed. Also, C-.
@AdamLear We were joking right after my "contact us" message.
Actually make it a D just because.
@JasonC D--
It's probably a completion grade anyway.
@AdamLear On more serious business, did you see this?

Jeff's answer to How does Stack Overflow handle spam? seems outdated.

@Stijn So, the problem here is that a bunch of us own Android devices. Nobody has a Windows Phone

but I guess if we wait long enough, these issues should resolve themselves? ;)
but seriously, yeah. I'd love to look into these, but I have no way to even try to reproduce, nevermind fix.
