Huh... writing unit tests is harder than writing an app's code, but then that means something is wrong...
Usually, yes. But be sure to not confuse "hard" and "time consuming" :)
Well, I learnt something when writing unit tests on Android... like
Q: Android Base64 encode and decode return null in Unit Test

brnbyI am attempting to decode a Base64 encoded string in Android using the http://developer.android.com/reference/android/util/Base64.html class. Both the encodeToString and decode methods are returning null, and I have no idea what's wrong, here's my code for the decode: // Should decode to "GRC" ...

in short: Android's utility class cannot be used in unit test -_-

@JohnDvorak nothing humane about durians until you eat it
Somebody around here has an idea what could cause this: When I use “intags:mine” in search, I get no results?
I'll add that I am not the OP. (But since this room is full of experienced users, it seemed like a reasonable place where to ask whether someone has encountered something like that before.)
1:52 PM
@Martin looks like too many tags, so something breaks or there is a non documented limit.
I don't think they meant this for so many tags.
Yes, that was suggested in one of the comments:
> Another guess: the site sets an undocumented limit for the number of tags in search, for performance reasons. -- if....
unrelated bug: the search bar has a maximum length of 240 chars, though it can be bypassed by using wildcard (and the search works) ._.

Hey, you guys are big microsoft guys, right? Is there an Outlook policy setting that makes alerts less... alert?

Hmm, I'm not sure I understand what you mean @AaronHall
It seems like half the time, my alerts don't pop up, and one day it's going to make me look bad.
oh yeah I've noticed that too
but I haven't found a pattern in it yet

@iDebug ^^
I'm taking the opportunity to share my 30-score feature request for SO here because I just ran into the problem again and it never received a staff or moderator response meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/360685/…
@TylerH Downvoted the answer. It's now at -8, so it's grayed out.
@TylerH Did you try contacting SE? There is a post on MSE that says it's better to contact SE about things if you want an official response.
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog Typically posting a on Meta of a site is the way to get a feature request addressed or implemented
though it's true sometimes things fall through the cracks
I once had a ~100-score tool-tip request that went a year without a response until I sent a friendly ping to a dev on Twitter, who got it implemented in like 20 minutes
@TylerH I remember that post saying something about requests that fall through the cracks
probably they will show their Trello board again
3:50 PM
@AaronHall you want the alerts to be less alerty but your problem is they aren't alerting at all some times?
I guess he asked if there's something that made the current behaviour "less alerty"...
@SensibleAlexander yes but then he said the problem is that sometimes they don't show up at all
what's really annoying to me is if I have any office365 tabs open I will get outlook alerts in the browser (with the sound) and also from my desktop outlook client; I guess I should turn off the browser alerts for now
It happened on my Trello too... Trello notified me through desktop alert, Trello sent email to Gmail, Gmail notified me through desktop alert .-.

@SensibleAlexander Yeah, if you're on iOS. Android has it too, but why use that if your native keyboard supports it?
don't worry, I use Gboard because I ❤ Google
Gboard - Google Keyboard is supported on iOS too
anyway, when I tried googling since when Google Keyboard got swipe support... got this results in a row
but I didn't get the answer though :(
@SensibleAlexander Perhaps Stack Exchange might help?
4:45 PM
@SmokeDetector How did you just now detect an answer from 2012?
@rene if you have time, can you check why this version of a SEDE query gives the wrong results (e.g. only 36 Constable badges, while there are 600+ as this (correct) version shows)
@Glorfindel Why did that detection happen?
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog There was an answer added 32 minutes ago. Old answers are checked too
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog that one because the question was bumped due to the answer 40 minutes ago
everytime a question is bumped, Smokey will scan all the posts again
@SensibleAlexander Ah, thanks.
5:10 PM
@Glorfindel union all is the culprit. Because you leave out the name of the database, the rows are no longer unique, so it takes one result. By doing a union all instead of union you request all rows to be added in the set: data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/783490
5:24 PM
@JennaSloan Pseudohuman showed up as recently active
Thanks. I just realized that during my evening commute - the 8 sites with Constable actually mean that there are 8 different badge counts (1, 2, 3, etc.)
UNION ALL is better then. I didn't even know it existed.
5:40 PM
@Glorfindel well, in this case yes. It is not always what you want ;)
5:55 PM
One year ago, I didn't even know UNION existed :)
@TylerH I wouldn't mind maximum obnoxiousness in my alerts.
6:22 PM
@AaronHall Did you follow rene's suggestion yet?
You can combine that notification with a custom Windows alert sound (via Control Panel) for maximum alertness
> On the Sound dialog box, on the Sounds tab, under Program Events, under Windows, click New Mail Notification.
If you are an Office 365 subscriber or have an Office 365 account you can also set up a Flow to do something like ping you via an app when you get a new email.
I'm using Outlook 2013... maybe customized by policy
the alert settings should be pretty much the same from 2010 through 2016, maybe even as far back as 2007
Anyways, my complaints are more about my calendar meetings and other things in the calendar.
If you are away from your desk often I'd say get the Outlook mobile app
If you are at your desk and just missing the alerts, I'd say just set the desktop popup to stay visible for longer and reduce the opacity (and position it to a more obvious place)
6:52 PM
Not sure if this is the place to ask this, but I might as well try. Does anyone understand what happened here: i.stack.imgur.com/h1TcP.png? I've read this explanation, but if a reviewer replaced an edit, why don't I see a message of that and if it was the other case, why doesn't it give the accompanying error? Any ideas?
@Discretelizard probably rejected by the OP. They always win
@rene Ok, then why can't I see Rejected by [user] anywhere? I know it say Accepted by [OP], why not in the other case as well? Why does community need to get involved?
@Discretelizard because the OP hasn't yet the rep to review?
Do you have a direct link to the question/review that makes it easier to figure out what happened
@rene I wasn't sure you can acess the reviews, but it's here.
Also, I've seen 6-rep (OP)users accept my edits, why can't they reject them?
@Discretelizard the OP edited and for that they had to either accept or reject the pending edit: cs.stackexchange.com/posts/86838/timeline the OP can't complete a review task so Community kicks it out of the queue on their behalf, in this case with a rejection.
7:00 PM
Revision history shows the rejection by Community coincides by an edit of OP, but I'm still confused why not either 1. I can see OP rejected it or 2. I can see the message corresponding to the 'A user with full edit privileges saves an edit over yours' case described in the meta article.
@rene So Community kicks in because the OP can accept edits, but not reject them? Weird behaviour, but ok I guess.
@Discretelizard no, community kicks in because the user has no review privileges and for that reason it won't record their userid in the review table.
@rene Then why is this 6-rep user recorded in the review table: cs.stackexchange.com/review/suggested-edits/53691 ?
hmm, that is unexpected
Let's ask @ShadowtheHedgehogWizard and/or @if.... what is going on here ^^^^^.
Maybe it is because they didn't accept/reject at all but just went ahead with their edit?
@rene Possibly, but the meta article seems to suggest that Community gives another reason in that case.
I'm sure sha or iff knows the juicy details. Let's wait for them to show up.
7:39 PM
@Discretelizard What's the situation?
@rene Ano probably knows
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog Community rejected my edit, probably because the OP did something, but the messages seems conflicting. See posts above.
@Discretelizard I understand the situation. You suggested an edit, Community rejected it for the same reason as someone clicking "Reject and Edit", but nobody reviewed it as such.
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog Exactly.
The timestamp for the automatic rejection is 15:10:16Z, while I also see an edit by the OP at 15:10:16Z.
The edit was automatically rejected due to edit conflict, but Community gave the wrong rejection reason.
I'd say this is a bug. Ask an MSE question about it.
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog Ok, will do. Thanks for looking into it.
7:45 PM
@Discretelizard The wrong error message is the bug. The rejection itself was correct.
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog :P
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog Yes, I understand that.
@rene In fact, Ano edited extensively on that topic and the suggested edits topic in general.
I should have known ...
Is everyone turning into hedgehogs now?
Rene I'd wash my hands if I were you

@M.A.R. I'll take a shower, just to be sure ...
@M.A.R. In all seriousness, we're naming each other after characters in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise.

@rene if you see too much body hair, it's too late
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog Ugh.
@rene Everyone has review privilege for edits to their own posts.
@if.... C'est vrai
Are flower body hairs green, or brown?
7:54 PM
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog unless the polls change :D
Those are regular reviews, they count toward review badges etc
@ZoetheWolf Woh sahi hai
@if.... OK, didn't know that.
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog uh, what?
7:55 PM
Community approves when there is Improve Edit, rejects when there is Reject and Edit, also rejects when there is a conflict. I think that's all the reviewing that Community does.
@ZoetheWolf "That's right" in Hindi (transliteration).
Memento mori
@rene yes OP chose to Reject and Edit, as the timeline of the post proves:
/cc @Discretelizard ^
@ShadowtheHedgehogWizard Then why can't I see that the OP did that?
8:01 PM
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog I don't think so, looks like OP chose Reject and Edit when reviewing. The behavior changed a while ago:
Q: Ask for a reason why the user is rejecting and editing

Donald DuckCurrently, when a user rejects and edits a suggested edit, Community♦ rejects it with the following reason: This edit did not correct critical issues with the post - view the revision history to see what should have been changed. The problem is that when I reject and edit, I would like to p...

@ShadowtheHedgehogWizard It's a dupe. Please close it.
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog done
@Discretelizard oh wait, you're right. OP has no activity for that. So there is indeed a bug here, though a weird one.
Or maybe OP got the post open in editor for such long time...
@ShadowtheHedgehogWizard I don't believe so. They probably took advantage of this design flaw:
Q: Editors can instantly reject suggested edits without leaving a trace in the revision history

David ChenUsing https://stackoverflow.com/posts/?/edit-inline while ? is the ID of the post. Pressing Save Edits without changing the textbox on a post that has Edit (1), will reject the edit by Community ♦

@ShadowtheHedgehogWizard Possibly, but then I would expect a different reason from Community.
@M.A.R. flowers have no hair
@Discretelizard indeed. Smells strongly of a bug. :)
8:06 PM
@ShadowtheHedgehogWizard Did you see the above post?
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog the bug report? Yes, now.
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog That question was before Community showed reasons at all (you can see that in the linked edit). I think that the message reason isn't by design.
@Discretelizard No - the reason is simply an addition. I don't think adding the reason would also fix that design flaw at the same time. I believe that the design flaw still exists, since it was marked .
In case it wasn't clear to anyone, I'm saying "design flaw" instead of "bug"
@ShadowtheHedgehogWizard Um, yes they do
@M.A.R. prove
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog SE got lots of those
8:17 PM
@ShadowtheHedgehogWizard It's the hallmark of mature software, in my experience.
@JonEricson still, mature or not, better improve wherever possible.
The thing we keep running into is that improving often means breaking stuff. It's the problem of local optimizations.
It's one thing for software with a few users and it's quite another when you have millions of people using it every day.
That's hair with flowers, not flowers with hair

@bluefeet cheers, guess we can't blindly trust the Anonymous Editor.
I don't have access to the error logs. ;) I can only put together what the user did, not what the server failed to do. I was just pointing out that the message chosen was the correct message for what the user did - they selected Reject and Edit in the review task.
