I actually dreamed of being suspended on ELL
 
Were you being naughty?
 
user202362
@M.A.R. You dream about suspensions? I wonder what your nightmares might be ...
 
I don't remember now what I did, but I do remember attempting to go to chat and insult whoever is on sight

random shooting is very good at getting yourself banned, yes
 
user202362
usually I have a few targets, I am very friendly towards everyone else though
 
user202362
I like highly reactive targets, not into rocks
 
user202362
For example, one of my favourite targets is a room owner. I like to associate him with pedophiles because his young girl anime fetish. I can guarantee a 30 sec chat suspension whenever I do that ...

poking rocks are not fun
 
@Telkitty is it an SO room?

user202362
it's quite obvious who I was referring to, but to your question: yes
 
I think I've only been banned/suspended once ever
and no one seemed to know why, so It clearly was a place that wasn't for me.
 
user202362
obviously you are not trying hard enough
 
@Telkitty I end up moderating a good chunk of the communities I'm a regular at so...
 
@Telkitty we need to learn from pros

@Bart I managed to pinpoint what was wrong and fixed it. Interfaces being implemented by the wrong classes, and code duplication. Things make sense again :)

Now if you can come over here and do the same for me, that would be great
 
No thanks :D

I have an iOS app feature request. If I want to do a feature request of the same feature for Android as well, should I open a new question or add existing Android app tag to it?
 
10:09 AM
If it's the exact same feature for all mobile apps, I'd just add both tags and make sure to clearly state it applies to both.

One or two small potential issues but seems ok otherwise ;p

Looking forward to its appearance on more sites ^^
 
2:18 PM
People really like picking on leaders now after POTUS Prompt has taken over
And they now like making meta dramas just to say ''The Powers That Be are ignoring us''
So that's what you get
 
@Bart they really should have put out a blog post first...
 
Apparently it's OK for that guy to post the same answer thrice
 
54D
Why don't they implement the new design on SE Meta first...?
 
@54D SO is the largest audience, so a lot more feedback possibilities
 
Not sure that would change much @Stijn.
 
54D
2:22 PM
But the design will be implemented in other sites in the near future nonetheless -- it's not just about one site?
 
@54D Why should they?
SO is their biggest product
 
@54D For relative values of "near", yes
 
So it makes sense to work on SO's code
 
:)
 
54D
Welp... at least that motivates me to go on SO more
 
2:24 PM
@Bart might have prepared people a bit to expect the change. But yeah, maybe it was better to leave it as opt-in for some more time.

@Bart This one might not be the drama causing one, but if we keep getting the "I don't like it!" posts, something will trigger it
For what it's worth, I've been using it since the update last week. I've gotten used to it and once the preference the disable the stickiness was added, I'm pretty happy with it.
It does what it needs to, without being in my way now

@54D yes?

Q: Header is too tall

michael.hor257kSomething has happened just now: the header has grown too tall and it blocks the top part of the content: This happens in Firefox and in Safari, logged in or out.

 
2:35 PM
@54D no, from Meta Stack Exchange: meta.stackexchange.com

Oh

@54D There's a banner that says where it was migrated from . . .

I know, I just got confused for no reason
Sorry
 
NP, I just didn't know what the problem was
 
@54D omg... at least not IE5
 
54D
2:41 PM
What is IE5
 
@54D Internet Explorer 5
 
54D
Lul
The computers in the computer room in our school still uses Internet Explorer
 
@54D you don't want to know.
It has no tabs.
 
@Shog9 I hope I don't catch you at an inopportune moment, but do you know if Pops is still active in chat? We pinged him in charcoal HQ a week ago (to hear about a inquiry we had) and he hasn't responded yet.
 
@ShadowWizard But it has security holes! That was the trade off. Security holes or tabs. Microsoft went with the cheaper feature
 
2:46 PM
The matter of concern is about auto flags we do over Metasmoke. We had formulated an inquiry to SE staff about that. So far Pops has been our point of contact, but we haven't got a response yet.
 
Back when I was a kid, I got a book on PHP from the library. I tried it on my PC but it would just show the PHP code. Figuring it was due to using IE5, I went on my parent's computer to download IE6 on floppies and install it on my own PC. Sadly, it still didn't work. Poor me couldn't understand why.
 
@Stijn so you tried today with IE 11 and it still didn't work? ;)
 
@ShadowWizard I gave up on PHP until high school, where a friend showed me what to do :p
 
@Stijn lol... as a kid I copied Basic code from a book to make a game.. think it was snake.
GWBasic. Good old times!
 
@ShadowWizard IE is very good at the one thing I use it for: visiting getfirefox.com
 
2:52 PM
@Shog9 looks like the new SO top bar breaks the whole site functionality for users with old browsers, i.e. they can't even ask questions. Isn't the site supposed to have the basic stuff even for ancient and unsupported browsers?
Thank you for the link. Unfortunately, as the menu bar now covers the top half of the page, I cannot actually click anywhere in that text box to ask the question, which is a slight shame. I was unaware of the custom design, especially as it seemed so uniform before. — A. N. Other 7 mins ago
(FF 18)
 
@ShadowWizard that is... a very old version of Firefox
@Magisch should be
 
@Shog9 True, but still...
The site worked fine until that change.
 
@Shog9 Can you or tim respond to our inquiry too or should we wait for pops as he was our point of contact?
 
54D
Is there an option to use the old site design somewhere?
 
2:54 PM
@54D nope
 
@ShadowWizard I was under the impression that there's only official support for the most recent versions of a browser more or less.
 
54D
I think one should be included though... considering the design breaks when viewed by old browsers.

Q: How can I go back to the old top bar?

user7393973How can I change the theme of the site back to the normal black bar and all of the rest? It just changed right now without any warning and I want it back. How it looks now:

@JourneymanGeek only for the full features. Basic things like logging in, asking, and answering, all should work anywhere.

Q: New Stack Overflow top bar covers half the screen, rendering the site useless

A. N. OtherI am stuck at work on an oldish computer running Firefox 18.0 on Ubuntu. I have a significant problem with the new title bar - it has only been unrolled in Stack Overflow for me. The problem I have is that the white bar is in the top third of the page, with the icons going down vertically. It ma...

 
I hate it when I discover a typo in a comment and I can't edit it anymore...
 
@54D supposed... not any more.
@Stijn delete, re-submit
 
54D
@ShadowWizard Is there a feature request about keeping the consistency? Since the title bar kind of acts as a portal connecting different pages, if the design isn't the same for all sites, it's a bit weird for me...
 
3:23 PM
@54D dunno, take a look on MSO... though such a request might be better posted on MSE.

Yeah, but last time I had the issue, it was at least consistent. Fixed it by reuploading my avatar on Gravatar
now it's just changing willy nilly
 
he still appears to be active on SO

@ShadowWizard I'm surprised that still pinged me. And no, the project is dead if I'm being honest.
There are so many quality control bots springing up now I just gave up.
 
@Stijn They like trolling you
 
@54D see Sam reply above... Pham is dead. :(
@Stijn huh? changing your willy doesn't sound good.
@Sam yeah, direct reply always ping, no matter how much time passed. :)
 
Sam
Oh yeah, didn't notice that. lol
 
(though if you're not in the room, you'll see that only after ~15 minutes when it becomes a notification)
So what's up @Sam? What project you work on these days?

A bot for controlling the quality of quality-controlling bots?
 
user315433
 
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? is a Latin phrase found in the work of the Roman poet Juvenal from his Satires (Satire VI, lines 347–348). It is literally translated as "Who will guard the guards themselves?", though it is also known by variant translations. The original context deals with the problem of ensuring marital fidelity, though it is now commonly used more generally to refer to the problem of controlling the actions of persons in positions of power, an issue discussed by Plato in the Republic. It is not clear whether the phrase was written by Juvenal, or whether the passage in which it...
 
@zaq that doesn't sound very bad
 
Sam
@ShadowWizard Been busy studying for exams over the past few months. Thankfully I have a few weeks off now. 😀 Atm I'm working on a game with some friends, but I'm also (very slowly) working on a framework for (myself mainly, for) building bots.
How about you? It's been a while since I last saw you guys :D

hehe, thanks!
 
@ShadowWizard Are you pregnant or your spouse?
 
@Magisch lol.. well, my spouse. :)

4:22 PM
topic of gender never really came up eh
 
@Magisch If you ever came to Den, you would've identified his gender at first glance
 
54D
RIP Pham.
 
@Magisch well, I never hid my gender (unlike other people here glaring at @Derpy ;)), and said "my wife" 28 times.‌​.. ;-)
 
Ripping Pham . . . Please wait
 
I theorize derpy is actually 2 people
@ShadowWizard You can be a woman and have a wife
 
4:26 PM
@Magisch oh. heh, that's true. let's see...
 
Sam
@54D Yup
 
@ShadowWizard OK, don't tell me you're gonna search for . . .

Q: It will be better if Navigationbar on Stackoverflow will be sticky

Prafulla Kumar SahuWhen we are moving down a page, we can not notice, if there is any notification, if the navigation at the top will be sticky , It will be really helpful. Is there any possibilities, we can see this in near future or , is there any other way to get notified. The question Position fixed navigation...

status-overturned
 
There's an option to make it non-floaty.
 
I actually quite like it
 
The existence of that option was the difference between "wtf have you done" and "damn, nice work" for me. I gotta say, I really like it. I like that it brings the color scheme back to its roots instead of that eyesore of a nav bar we've had for the past 4 years.
Yeah me too.
 
4:58 PM
Agreed. With that option, I am pretty pleased with it.
 
It's amazing to see how some usual suspects seem to lack any ability to offer constructive feedback. Even if it is negative.
 
5:28 PM
I'd like it if the new nav bar was dark
As is now I made it dark using my own css
so whatever
 
It might be cultural or something, but IMHO posting a ''your work sucks. Lemme get back to the old nav bar'' under the very frigging post that announces the new bar's deployment is rude and ignorant
 
It is
Much like "Documentation just sucks. Nix it and fire everyone involved in making it" is also rude

JNatOn a weekly basis, the Community Team vets a handful of feature requests to be sent over to the engineering team and estimated, scheduled into next month's plan, and built (or sometimes rejected for technical reasons).

@bluefeet Is that screenshot small on purpose, or am I allowed to post my transcription of the Trello cards?
 
@Stijn If I didn't want anyone to read anything, I wouldn't even have posted a screenshot :P So sure, I guess
 
@JNat ok, wanted to ask before I posted :)
 
@JNat I was actually wondering if you could get in trouble for posting company internals
But you're probably smarter then me so you probably thought of that and cleared it with tim first
 
@Magisch There's nothing sensitive there. I asked others to have a look to make sure first.

in Charcoal HQ on The Stack Exchange Network Chat, Feb 8 at 8:20, by ArtOfCode
@Pops Have you had whatever discussions you need to have about multiple automatic flags on a post (bearing in mind that "no" is a perfectly acceptable answer, as is "it's getting postponied")?
 
@Stijn I'd doubt that @JNat is gonna update the screenshot each month, I'm not sure an answer is needed
 
We first heard about that in september 2016, and I think 3 months ago or so someone asked for the first time
And we got zilch response
 
@bluefeet I know, it's mostly out of curiosity for what's on it right now
 
Maybe I'm young and naive and overestimate the response time because I work in a small company where I can and do walk over to the owner and ask them about stuff when I want to
 
6:56 PM
@Magisch is there a feature posted somewhere?
 
@Stijn I thought you were gonna transcribe the contents here or something :P
 
@bluefeet no

The entire thing isn't exactly public yet
 
Doesn't make much sense to have 'em as an answer, @Stijn :\
 
6:56 PM
Charcoal was in communication with pops
 
@JNat oh, right. I've deleted the answer again :p
 
I think an email was involved at some point
@bluefeet ArtOfCode can tell you more, I pinged him over here
 
hm?
 
@Stijn ;)
 
I got salty in the meta comments
and bluefeet asked me why
