Some users may be unhappy with MRE and MCVE because these acronyms take an effort to pronounce. Something neater is needed...
For example: Minimal, Instantly Reproducible, And Generic Example - MIRAGE.
Well, I did not try hard.

Seemed as ḡ̯̮͈̩̘o͍̳ͥ̀ö͕̠̟̬̜͉̘́̓̉̈́ͯd̲̜͚͓̏͋ͨ̓ of a choice as any.
 
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog cheers x 3
@Magisch blame me ;)
 
We do that anyway.

!!/blame
 
@ShadowTheDragonWizard It's Stephen Rauch's fault.

@Mithrandir It's Shadow The Dragon Wizard's fault.
 
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog welcome to the club.
I already voted to delete those, but here's another one which should bite the dust: meta.stackexchange.com/q/332951/295232

@Glorfindel kaboom
 
Now you're just teasing me
 
Who?
Why?
How?
Where?
 
When?
 
What?
 
Which?
 
7:56 AM
Whatever.

Who starred that? Now I look like an unfun person! :P
 
You are an unfun person.
;)
 
Probably true... :P
 
Cannot unfun it!
 
Especially at this moment. I lost 4 weeks of relaxation in 10 minutes this morning :/
Minirant: Vacation was way better than work.
 
Well that's a surprise.
 
8:10 AM
I code when I'm vacant
wait, wrong word...
 
Yeah, I hadn't expected this either. I thought I had pretty much tied up every loose end before vacation, but it seems some sagas aren't done yet.
 
@MetaAndrewT. vacatn is the right word
. . . Vatican?
 
@Tinkeringbell that 29 sites have left beta announcement. It's still being featured. How come? More than 30 days have gone by. Is it because it's still a Sunday in the US? But yesterday was the 1st September. — Mari-Lou A 3 hours ago
Anyone know why featured tags stick around longer than 30 days? I thought they'd be gone by then :/
 
@Tinkeringbell Ca-ching, probably
 
@M.A.R. For days? It's September second, we're talking about a tag that should've been gone August 31st according to my calculations :/
 
8:17 AM
I didn't vote on that particular FR because what does a dropdown solve?
@Tinkeringbell Oh. Hmm . . .
 
The last time a diamond edited the tags was August 2. It should be gone by tonight, if I'm right.
 
@Mithrandir Huh? It looks at when a diamond edits the tags, not when the featured tag was added?
 
I think so
 
this one weird trick can help you keep a featured tag forever!
 
We'll see in six and a half hours, I guess?
 
8:20 AM
@Mithrandir I hope so! ;)
 
8:32 AM
@Tinkeringbell someone must kick the server side cache, it's not new
 
8:54 AM
@ShadowTheDragonWizard Oh, kicking. Kicking stuff sounds good :D
 
@Tinkeringbell Like this?
;)
 
@Mithrandir Oh, do try. I have bigger guns to fire here :P
It'll be fine. Just... another two or three weeks of phone calls and e-mails and managers, I guess....
 
Oh, uh, erm, I just remembered I have an urgent errand on a chat server far away from here.
 
At least I found the 'right' manager, one that does help, just before I went on vacation ;)
 
Well, at least you get paid for it?
 
9:05 AM
@Mithrandir Ehhh.. not really. I get paid to code, not to bicker ;)
 
Code a bot to bicker for you. That should solve everything.
 
Oh well. I'll look at it like pooping on the boss' time.
@Mithrandir At this point, that might work :P I can have it just repeat a few choice words and sentences :P
 
Pooping on stuff is something most birds are good at.
 
Heh. Maybe I should try pooping on a manager then.
 
Let us know how that goes :P
 
9:07 AM
I will ;) Perhaps if I ever go back to retail, I'll try it on my last day on the job :P

10:12 AM
@Tinkeringbell indeed! :P
@M.A.R. Morse code?
 
It's the result of a command issued in CHQ. Don't worry about it.
 
oh
So confusing
 
It's almost never used.
 
5 (!) days old setInterval @Bart @rene @Sonic
 
@ShadowTheDragonWizard 5! = 120

@M.A.R. true

Hey, meta.SO is fun tonight
Some of the classic popcorn drama. Not any of the new cheap crap.
 
7:38 PM
Link please? Unless you mean "nerf downvotes plz #20 000"?
 
Hey, I enjoy the classics, OK?!
It's much better than a welcoming rant (ha). Those are like B movies.
 
I'm not complaining, just clarifying. Thank you.
 
You're welcome, crystal clear person.
There's also the witch hunt with that new rude new contributor thing.
The last fun post was from Aug 29th, so there's that.

8:12 PM
@M.A.R. Is there a "new rude contributor" icon now? Similar in shape but with most fingers curled.
 
@404 Or gothic metal symbolism

8:30 PM
@Feeds Is it deserted island, or desert island, or dessert island? I can never remember which one to use.
Mine is probably Wilco.

Q: Is SE allowing ads to use fingerprinting to track users?

Mad ScientistThis is pretty much a follow-up to this meta announcement by SE. Ideally that announcement would have resolved the issue, but the language in it was vague and evasive, and there have been no clarifications by SE in the 2.5 weeks since it was posted. The trigger for this issue was a report that o...
