7:08 PM
As Robert Longson is both active here and on the SVG subsystem for FF I'm sure he'll confirm. — rene 4 hours ago
It'd be awesome if he doesn't respond
I bet @rene won't be able to pollinate without it
And he can't spread his evil
Hey @Bart, what are you looking at me for?
You know why. You know what you did.
Stop staring. It's rude
@Bart prove it
I don't have to prove a thing. When you have as many stars as I have, you can do whatever you want
Such as edit your message because you can't English
Ha-ha hahaha ahhhhhahaha HaHaHa
He can't English! He can't English
I think it's time for my smiting stick again
7:14 PM
You're no longer Bart the great
And why is that?
Your stick is rusty, old man
It's time for younger, braver, stronger people to take over
7:17 PM
Such hostility. And all I'm trying to do is entertain the world with my vidyagames. You young whippersnappers don't deserve me
calling a gang of kids to throw stones at @Bart
@Bart No one deserves each other here ;-)
Just a heads up!
@πάνταῥεῖ @Bart doesn't have a head
Shog stole it
Or @Bart stole Shog's glasses
Wait, we're not supposed to be rude in comments? meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/365811/…
Hey, new mods, how about testing your new powers by banning @M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ from chat?
7:22 PM
@canon This is news?
@canon We're not
@Bart I got you dis time, phony face
@Bart Only the staff can do that in here, so "new mods" aren't going to get you anything.
Someone ought to tell everyone then... as that sort of runs counter to the behavior I've seen over the past 10 years. :P
@canon I've been told, believe me ;-)
7:24 PM
@canon cameras suck. How's that for a rude comment?
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ you should be canonized.
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ "If you don't have to say something nice ..."
@πάνταῥεῖ song by Beatles
@canon as in "shot from a canon"? I can get behind that.
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ Beatles
7:26 PM
@πάνταῥεῖ so the Beatles were never beaten up their whole life?
No wonder they could sing well
@Bart you're not going anywhere
putting @Bart in a box
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ I'm going to play some games. That's what I'm going to do. And you can't stop me.
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ The Rolling Stones had beaten them: Sympathy for the devil :-D
@Bart let's play a game of get prosecuted. You go first
Having Liam Neeson interrogate @Bart
@πάνταῥεῖ they rolled on them?
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ They rolled over (and over, and over ...)
But I became a punk fan anyways ...
Q: Why is Stack Exchange logo written as StackExcha'r'ge?

Dheemanth Bhandarkar The Stack Exchange logo displayed in the top left is written as Stack Excharge. Why? Is it done purposefully or a bug?

7:33 PM
So if Stack is Ex-charge, who's the charge now?
@Catija sorry, can't read your message in Mosaic
@Catija Some of our company computers use firefox version 17 or 18
I have to develop for that
picture that :p
That's classy though, right
7:35 PM
@Catija so shouty, geez
Like riding a 1959 Porsche 356
@Taryn I'm trying to help :D
@Taryn Ah, bluefeet?
7:37 PM
Why change your real name to this ridiculous nickname @Taryn? :D
to confuse everyone
Nevertheless, sticking to avatars is a neat thing :-D
Left is right, up is down, bluefeet is Taryn ... I am so confused. I can't leave you guys alone, can I?
Q: How many types of protons does this structure have?

Sammie I am having trouble determining how many different types of protons there are on this structure. I believe it is 4 but I am not sure. Thanks in advance.

I do the opposite... change the avatar, never the UN.
7:39 PM
@Magisch horror overflow
@Taryn context?
@Taryn Any particular reason for that or do you just like taryn better?
@Catija that's the normal way of doing it
I change neither since my ava and name have been with me for so long
Taryn is good. I can't probably pronounce it
I admit that I was expecting Taryn's username change here, as it was proceeded by a username change on Twitter.
7:42 PM
@Catija If you change the UN, will they become more just?
@Magisch I had to do something creative in changing both for socks, but they discovered me anyways :-D
@Magisch that must be boring
I should maybe change my avatar now
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ I've had this username for 14 years and ava for 10
What should it be?
@Magisch just felt like it
@ShadowWizard of?
7:43 PM
@Magisch that must be boring
I'm distinctive in other ways
@Taryn shouty, geez
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ Magic, what else?
@Magisch that must be . . . Oh forget it
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ stop writing so fast! :D
7:44 PM
@ShadowWizard my heart . . . Fingers . . . Finger hearts just broke
@Taryn oh lol (thought you mean some post/comment she made ;))
@Catija I'd been thinking about it for a while
@ShadowWizard yeah Mr. Calm and Slow, it's few messages above it
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ few is too much for me!
7:46 PM
You're too calm and slow?
@ShadowWizard backscroll!!
Master Oogway
@ShadowWizard, what happened to @M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ? Why all the grumpiness?
@Bart the scratching hand drives him grumpy
@ShadowWizard If doesn't scratch right now
7:47 PM
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ calslow (think that's a food name ;))
Oh, now it does. Damn you
@Bart that sounds like a European city you only hear about in a WWII context
7:49 PM
Actually derives from Dutch
@Bart like many good foods!
Located in Luchöschtein
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ because you were a bad boy!
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ Where actually?
oh this reminds me, how's your brother doing? @M.A.R.
7:50 PM
@ShadowWizard Now I'm a good boy and it still scratches
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ too late. For being a bad boy you got 30 minutes of itching.
@ShadowWizard calmly and slowly sleeping
@ShadowWizard hey you don't decide that
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ oh, yeah... he's so young... lol
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ I just did
Are you an accomplice of @Bart?
We're all figments of Shog's imagination
7:52 PM
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ we all are
@Bart or yours
I have no imagination
@ShadowWizard well, I'm rising against the system
@Bart maybe you imagined that you had none
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ takes too much imagination to imagine that you don't have imagination.
I would keep rising against the system, but I feel dizzy after dialysis
I should sit down against the system
@ShadowWizard exactly
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ so lie down against the system
7:55 PM
@ShadowWizard I should just take a stand and sit on an armchair
Laura I thought you worked for SE
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ gone
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ gone
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ gone
Train wreck :-P
@πάνταῥεῖ more like a ghost train
So it cannot be wrecked
More like Eschede :-P
7:59 PM
Leave Enschede out of it ...
@rene At least I refrained from posting a picture ...
That is a win
@rene I'm training ;-)
Should my comments here considered the same as LMGTFY or RTFM, or at least being nice and helpful (though closing the question)?
8:17 PM
@πάνταῥεῖ well, the first 4 can use an introduction, like: Did you verify if [link] can be useful?
@rene Yeah, that would be a useful improvement. THX
Next time you should decide if you're going to answer and then write an answer or leave a comment to have the OP improve their question. Now you have kind of answered in the comments.
@rene "Now you have kind of answered in the comments." I know, and that was my concern about it.
But it was more to show the OP did very low efforts, and I mentioned that in another comment.
@πάνταῥεῖ @rene is sadly and unfortunately right. Leaving the bare links allows for open interpretation, and people are more likely to interpret stranger messages as hostile
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ I see ...
8:25 PM
@rene no @πάνταῥεῖ, keep answering in the comments
@πάνταῥεῖ Yeah, but then I would choose one approach, so either you comment to have them improve their question or you answer in a comment. Don't do both: Hey your question su&^%, here is the answer.
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ Should I? But put more context?
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ you're a stranger, so your messages are hostile to me ...
I at least took that (very little) effort.
The OP could at least have asked "Are these translations considered correct and good?"
@rene Everyone is a foreigner in the SE land it seems for me. Unless the good enrooted folks :-D
8:32 PM
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ Yeah, natively at that site. And I forgot that much since school. I have to ask my daughter from time to time.
It's easy for a native speaker to decide what sounds right or wrong, but describing that in grammatical terms is a tough job.
@rene yeah, Dutchman. Let's see what you've got
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ Native dutch and deep roots? What would you expect?
@πάνταῥεῖ I expect he clumsily will trip on his war boots
8:39 PM
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ He's not bad as you mentioned earlier. And I'm not going to refer to the original video :-P
@πάνταῥεῖ Please do not edit your question drastically. It will render the answers already given as obsolete.
@πάνταῥεῖ huh, your daughter? I thought you were a teenager
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ Well, I've just got faster fingers than @Shadow :-P ...
scratches head
Head, not hand. @Sha
@πάνταῥεῖ When I left school all German practice I had was Aus der reihe Derrick ...
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ No. I'm going to get 54 this year. What made you think that?
8:41 PM
Bit of Peter Pan syndrome though :-P
@πάνταῥεῖ I dunno, really. I have a fickle memory, it seems
in Charcoal HQ on The Stack Exchange Network Chat, 9 mins ago, by M.A.R. ಠ_ಠ
I also thought Monsters Inc.'s sequel on Rotten Tomatoes had a 41 percent rating
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ Alzheimer is that?
@πάνταῥεῖ maybe because you screw up like you did when you were young ;)
@rene I still screw up every time possibly yes :-D
8:43 PM
@πάνταῥεῖ at an age of 19?
That didn't change much over all these decades.
Keeps us young ;)
Haha, so @rene admitted being old
And possibly ugly. Telling @rene's gardener
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ Didn't you notice?
8:44 PM
@πάνταῥεῖ no, he will notice the scissors beheading him
Q: Is there a way to block users?

GMNoobThere are users on this site that are poisionong the site for me. How can I block them? I've tried flagging their comments but there is no response, and my notifications are spammed with their activity.

@rene is poisionong the site for me
BTW my daughter laughed her ass off about my frequent suspensions at Stack Overflow, and what were the reasons. She still believes I'm right in how to deal with stupid people (I must have given her something along, and she grows up well as a tough young women).
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ Well, that's very questionable. I don't think so.
I'm a full time plantz supporter!
@πάνταῥεῖ no, I mean look at his face
It's so poisionoous
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ No. @rene is just our CCVO :-)
9:00 PM
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ It looked like a clippy-snake in the thumbnail
@πάνταῥεῖ Carnivorous Coarse Vile Ocelot?
@PrincessLuna and that's just the surface
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ No Chief Close Voting Oficer of course.
@πάνταῥεῖ Close Voting is the only thing momentarily stopping him from bringing upon us doom
9:23 PM
I went 3/3 in Code Review election
@SFTP Oh, I didn't notice you participated there.
@SFTP 3 new mods, 3 mods resign...have we had any cases where more mods have resigned during an election than were elected during it?
9:40 PM
@SonicWizard not resigned in masse... but Christianity had 5 pro tem mods before their 1st election, which became 4 after the election.
So it happened that the number of moderators decreased after an election.
Code Golf went from 6 to 4 in a similar way.
@SFTP What's the holdup regarding the design for Code Golf?
Same as for every other design. The fundamental structure of site designs is being ... redesigned.
@SFTP I mean, it graduated back when designs were issued in six months; what delayed it initially?
9:44 PM
"designs were issued in six months" was not true at that time either. Some sites waited way longer than others.
@SFTP Why has it been waiting so long?
A: How long until graduated sites get a new site design and increased privileges threshold?

SFTPThis is an incomplete list, made community wiki in case anyone wishes to add to it. The sites are sorted by graduation date. Sources: Graduation Dates: Timeline of SE sites, which gets the dates directly through the SE API Design Dates: Site's Meta for announcements of new designs. The dura...

The only site that graduated after PPCG and got design was Puzzling.
It's easier to visualize "puzzle" than "code golf"
The holdup with Anime/Manga is that it would have to be designed in a particular style, which is probably something that nobody on the design team is comfortable with.
9:51 PM
I think the holdup is that they've put all site designs on hold until they redo the entire network design.
And also Jin got laid off, presumably because they didn't need his specialized help designing sites because the design is going to get much simpler
... and Travis left...
@SonicWizard more likely because they couldn't afford the amounts of Bacon he demanded. ;)
They cut across the board, by the same logic one could assume they don't need much of anything anymore.
@Catija huh? @TravisJ?
10:00 PM
I'd say the cause and effect are in reverse order.
@Catija Kurtis?
... wait... Kurtis? Beavers? :P
Travis... Kurtis... similar sound.
@M.A.R.ಠ_ಠ harder to hide the results
Massive cuts => will have to do less => simpler, more uniform designs
@Catija oh, K not J. Who was he for SE?
10:01 PM
Fewer meta posts by CMs.
@ShadowWizard Design lead.
> Former Creative Director of product at Stack Overflow / Stack Exchange
@Catija nice line in resume
He was the one who came up with all the site designs back when graduation entailed getting a design immediately
@πάνταῥεῖ take that as a compliment, where else will people think you're a teenager? ;-)
@Catija ::cough:: quantum computing ::cough::
@Mithrandir24601 ... y'all don't even like the logo they made... so clearly they didn't spend that much time on it.
@Mithrandir24601 this is special case
They got a sponsor which makes things lot easier, money wise.
@Catija This is very true :P but we've got a post up about a new logo and possibly an actually paid person to help with the design from outside of SE :)
10:05 PM
@ShadowWizard With a one-year contract... so that's got to help.
Once upon a time they made a challange open to everyone to make/choose a design, don't remember where exactly. (or maybe just a logo?)
@Catija indeed
@ShadowWizard And based on what the new Changes post says, it sounds like they're going to do that more in the future.
@ShadowWizard Yeah, it seems to - there are a few people from the sponsoring company actively involved in the site and (as in previous post/message/thing) seem willing to help quite a bit :)
A: How to resize datepicker text programmatically

Paul Hermensare you real? I can't get it to work, could you explain how you did it?

I don't know... I could be someone's hallucination.... or a nightmare.
11:02 PM
> I hope I have not wronged this squirrel. Maybe I have? Maybe I stepped on his tail by accident or maybe I ate a stick that belonged to him? Is it really that easy to mistakenly cross another creature? What can I do to have better interactions with squirrels? -- A bear at 3:52 PM - 10 Apr 2018
The bear read too much Twitter.
Be a moderator on M&TV?
11:14 PM
@πάνταῥεῖ that or you are a bad influence :p
Filtering the Close queue by [function] [web] [windows] appears to achieve the right balance between can't homework, how to web, and computer use questions.
