The topbar icons such as the one for review should be replaced with text links. Namely, Browse Jobs | Find a Job | Job Board | Developer Jobs | Explore Jobs | Search Jobs
 
user315433
Might have to drop something else in there to make room for these.

That's not really true... one can request that the content be deleted.
 
user315433
Thread for context... the author appears to be someone of note, at least he has more Twitter followers than @StackOverflow itself.
 
user315433
(We still measure one's worth by the follower count, right?)

Not a whole lot of answers, but some highly voted / viewed stackoverflow.com/users/54937/sedat-kapanoglu
 
@Guero Irritatingly, I have zero idea who it is or what they're upset about.
 
user315433
@Shog9 Now you do, since I linked their SO profile... stackoverflow.com/users/54937/sedat-kapanoglu?tab=topactivity
 
oh, that's handy, thanks
TIL: user search doesn't like unicode
 
Does anything? ;p
 
user315433
2:15 AM
Yes, I went down that path too. Then searched by first name only.
 
Huh. No recent drama that I can see.
:shrug:
 
user315433
Some people keep their drama inside.
 
@Shog9 Maybe they feel really strongly about tabs
 
probably it
 
had a prolific user once demand that I delete all of their posts. Talked to 'em for a while to find out why, and it came out that they'd had a fight with their boyfriend and just wanted to break stuff.

also the emotional breakup thing. Isn't deleting all you posts a little like taking a baseball bat to a rented apartment
@Shog9 ow
and heh. I was just out of a breakup and dropping out of school a second time when I found SU. I wanted to fix things ;p
 
eh, he's starting to get rude now; I think I'm done.

My old love is chicken, my new passion is drone. But my main occupation is fixing stuff (code/property etc) at the moment. Chicken just flew on to my windowsill, asking for attention. I should spend more time with my chicken.
 
user202362

My original thought was that drones would make good tools, like for transporting and carrying people's bags. But after playing with my 2nd drone for a few days, I now understand why they are more suitable for weapons.
 
user202362
I need a better drone, but I plan to get a DIY kit with programming parts. That can wait a little ...

There's a mini hawk-craze here. A family of three (?) hawks made the campus their home, and raised three chicks this year. The third one left the nest just yesterday.
 
user315433
All with a dedicated webcam, twitter feed, etc.
 
user315433
The webcam now shows an empty nest 24 hours a day. :(

I once tried to put go pro cam on chicken, my bird didn't like that
 
user202362
I don't think she loves to be chased by a drone either

too much smoke...
 
quite. I can hardly see any chat through the smoke.

@JourneymanGeek I opened the Chimney ...
 
ahh, I see clearly now the smoke is gone ;p

An idea: when a downvote is cast without a comment, it goes into Downvote Review Queue to make sure the vote is fair. If the majority of reviewers say it's unfair, the vote is reversed.
 
Ugh, downvoting blatantly off-topic questions will be painful.
Especially on SO. It might surpass CV review queue.
 
@Guero what would be the review action then? Upvote and Looks OK?
 
(though apparently, it's not as stupid as it sounds)
 
What is a NO keyboard? In Norwegian layout?
 
@rene apparently duplicate
 
7:34 AM
oddly enough, if its PS/2 that might not have worked

@rene I'm new to the Tavern. Can you please tell me if I am correct about the following?
@SmokeDetector is a bot whose job is to alert the who's who of Meta.SE about suspicious activity?
So when it detects something, it posts it here. The objective is to alert some users to take action?
And when the job is done, you export the alerts to the Chimney, because they have served their purpose.
 
yep. that is about right
@TheDarkSide not only on Meta.SE, Smokey watches all posts on all sites, network wide
 
@rene I see. Thanks.
 
 
1 hour later…
10:02 AM
@TheDarkSide yeah, it alerts people about possible spam. Smokey only reports posts in here if they haven't been deleted within 5 minutes of detection, which is pretty rare, so if you're interested in seeing where all the cool stuff happens consider dropping into Charcoal HQ
 
or if you have too much free time to flag all teh spamz :)
 
@Elephant you don't necessarily need free time. I just keep a tab open and quickly switch, flag, and go back to whatever I was doing every time some spam comes in
 
10:35 AM
@angussidney I see. Thanks :)
 
10:57 AM
@angussidney oh, I need to do a better job in explaining the goal and direct users to better places ... ;)

@rene you already linked to the two other things that we normally link to, so you did a good job on that :)
 
\o/
Can someone check if I'm really way off here. I only want some feedback in case I missed something obvious.
 
11:31 AM
@rene that's pretty on point. But were the close votes before or after he edited? Were these answers before or after the close votes/edits?
 
@angussidney the close flag was immediate i think, but the edit came in while it was in the queue and handled
@angussidney One answer before the close review, one after
 
@rene maybe it would be worth reiterating that the first revision was closable, but the edit was after the close votes, and the question is all OK now, so the close votes should be redacted?
 
I can't really judge that. I'm very much against telling other people how to use their votes.
I'm fine with the ageing of those close votes
 
@rene well, something along the lines of that 'it probably wouldn't have been close voted if the initial revision was like it is now'
 
@angussidney gave it an edit
It is a lost case, I'm out of that answer
 
11:54 AM
I think I found the dupe target for that Python post...
 
Is it on Reddit?
 
on SO, with clearer title
 
@Elephant well. feel free to close vote it ...
 
Eh, if I vote to close with the dupe, will it be closed as dupe even though it has 4 unclear votes?
 
@Elephant good point, I think that only happens if you're a gold badge holder
 
12:19 PM
20K audio slide meta.stackexchange.com/questions/297280/… /cc @Bart @sha @TravisJ
 
12:33 PM
@Guero I think that got lost during a restart, try running it again
 
user315433
@Elephant Unfortunately not. I used to see comments "I don't agree that the question is unclear/whatnot, my vote was to close as a duplicate"
 
Make sense. At least I've left the dupe target in the comment

dogs must fit in a bag when travel on the subway ... so if you have a big dog, get a big bag

Can someone explain to me if Hans does include the meta crowd in his critique here?

For a moment I thought Nick was going to play a slot machine

@rene lol, all those buttons.... slot gas machine indeed! I want to play Pacman there! :D
@Oded אותך לרב הראשי!
 
@ShadowWizard oh no!
 
@Oded yup. You won't be Kosher anymore!
 
@ShadowWizard a few decades late for that.
