@SmokeDetector @cigien small heads-up: answers in the wrong language are NAA, not FP
 
@RyanM Oops, sorry about that. I knew and forgot. I'll be more careful.
 
np! everyone makes mistakes
if you catch any of mine, please let me know :-)
 
1:33 AM
Will do :)
 
I can't see the post this report is referring to, so I assume it's deleted. MS is not showing the post as deleted though, which is strange. If someone has 10k on android.se could you let me know if it was deleted as spam?
 
I wonder if the SE websockets are being sad again
I think I've seen it locally as well
cc @Makyen as the network's resident websockets-being-broken expert
I know MS only tracks deletions so long, but that was only reported 4 hours ago
Another example: metasmoke.erwaysoftware.com/post/286135 was the only one of this user's 16 posts that MS didn't notice being deleted
Based on the deletion times for the rest, my guess was that it was all deleted within "about an hour" as MS describes it. I'm pretty sure the Tavern cracked down pretty hard on the very obvious pile of spam, especially after a few of us briefly discussed the fact that it was all spam.
 
@RyanM Did you happen to know of that post, or did you run some sort of search for that?
 
1:46 AM
@cigien Happened to know of it
It was obvious because it was the only one of the whole lot that wasn't grayed out from FIRE
 
Ah, ok. For a moment I was all "whoa, how did you find an example so fast?" :p
 
waves hands magic
 
I'm not seeing anything greyed out, or different about that one. Do I need to get an authorization token in the Tavern to see that?
 
Having a good memory for random things is fun, because sometimes you can look like a wizard...now if only I could remember my to-do list that well.
@cigien probably, yeah
ah no wait
it only shows grayed out in the channel itself
not the transcript
 
Sorry, what do you mean by "channel"?
 
1:50 AM
@cigien The greying out is currently done by AIM, not FIRE. So, if you don't have AIM installed, it won't happen.
 
...ah, that...makes a lot more sense than what I said
 
@Makyen Ah, ok that explains it, I don't have AIM. Thanks.
 
thanks ^^;

@RyanM I see. So join the room, install AIM, and scroll up to see the reports in chat. Got it, thanks.
 
yup
also AIM is great, highly recommend
you can see feedback without clicking things
unless that's FIRE and I'm just confused. entirely possible.
 
Hmm, people keep recommending userscripts, and I'm worried I'll end up with 50 in short order.
 
1:54 AM
@cigien ha... only 50...
 
:P
 
50, nah...I've only got, uh, 16
it'd be 17 if one of them didn't manage to break my browser... (SOX, for the curious)
 
@SmokeDetector fp- Dark Reader's great
 
Yeah, I tried SOX a long time ago, but never got it working well and didn't like a few things. I didn't spend a lot of time on it, so it's probably resolvable, but I just disabled it and didn't go back to it.
@RyanM Note that AIM is not currently enabled in transcripts due to the load which that would put on the MS API. It's expected that will be resolved at some point, but we're not there yet.

Good to know the explanation :-)

@Makyen might be a use case for GraphQL to load all the data in one go
 
[ SmokeDetector | MS ] Link at beginning of answer (34): Are the Pandavas the sons of Gods, or Gods themselves? by Abhiram Ekula on hinduism.SE (@Pandya)
 
2:15 AM
@ArtOfCode Yes, that's the current intent. I've written the code for FIRE to use GraphQL and am using it in the version I run. My intent is that the two scripts will share the data between them, so it's only requested once when both are in use.
Using GraphQL is dramatically better, but can't currently grab all the data for all reports on a page at a time. The limits currently in place for GraphQL result in between 10 to 15 posts being the maximum possible to request at the same time, due to the complexity of the request (i.e. it times out or the complexity is beyond the current limit and produces an error).
That results in 7 to 10 API requests for 100 reports, rather than the combined total for FIRE and AIM of in the ballpark of 500 to 600 requests currently.

@ArtOfCode Yeah, I'm good with that too. Less is better, but I don't consider it a large issue. Where it is without using GraphQL, at up to hundreds of requests, isn't viable. :;
 
Aye

@CodyGray ah, sure

@NisseEngström Yeah, that's a decent way to find it. I often use the MS search to check these things, so I'll see if I can figure out why that didn't work. Thanks for the help.

You know what I think would be awesome? A !!/search command or similar that would generate the links that are generated when a watch PR is generated.
 
Ah
 
@CodyGray Hmm, what purpose would that serve exactly?
 
Before you watch something, you want to check how many FPs it has generated/would generate.
4
 
8:27 AM
@CodyGray but how? like the ms search?
 
Yeah
 
you mean like this?
somepost: tp
somepost: naa
someotherpost: fp
someother:: naa
someother: tp
 
Look, here, you get the links in the very first comment. And then you get metasmoke telling you how many TPs, FPs, and NAAs it has been seen in.
I consider that very useful information in deciding whether to watch something or not.
 
Ah, Like that comment.
 
Sure, you can dig all of this information up manually. And arguably should before you watch something, especially if you have watchlista privileges and no one else is going to check your work. But why should I do all of that digging manually when a bot can do it for me?
 
8:29 AM
@ppwater Not just MS search though, that only tells you how many we've already seen by previous watches and detection methods.
Search the SE network too.
Where possible.
 
Hi, Mast. You are actually the person from whom I learned the importance of checking how many FPs a watch would generate.
 
Oh, right
 
You're welcome, glad to be of service.
 
Once seeing you do so and comment on it, it was obvious. But it wasn't necessarily obvious from the outset.
 
Yeah, that would be nice to be able to see more easily. Right now, I have to manually search for things in 2 different interfaces, MS and SE. A search command would be nice.
 
8:31 AM
I guess I can always @Mast to do the checking, but I worry you might get tired of that. ;-)
 
@cigien Check out the Text tab on that post. Perhaps that's what is being searched. metasmoke.erwaysoftware.com/…
 
@cigien Yup, exactly.
 
@cigien Bookmarklets. The trick is abusing bookmarklets.
 
Until you end up on a different browser...
 
Well, yes.
But that has more problems :-)
 
8:32 AM
Bookmarklets are even more fiddly for me to manage than full-on userscripts.
 
@Mast Ah, yes. RyanM has been suggesting that to me already. Haven't taken the plunge yet.
 
I don't manage them, I just steal them and hit the button.
 
You have to have some way to manage them, though.
What is the output?
 
New tabs.
 
Ah... see, not ideal.
Put it all in one place.
I have enough tabs. I fight against things that introduce even more tabs.
 
8:33 AM
You'd need a userscript then.
 
Or an SD command ;-)
 
I have a folder in my bookmarks for bookmarklets, all of them are for Charcoal anyway.
Every so often I have too many tabs, got that problem anyway.
 
Makyen/EC2-linux: Executing automatic scheduled reboot.
 
@cigien They're great. One of them is quite essential for searching what a regex is actually going to produce, since it automatically adds bookendings.
 
@NisseEngström Hmm, that's very strange. The MS report shows the original markdown, and then MS search strips away stuff from the Markdown when doing the search? That's very strange. Or at least surprising, to me.
 
8:36 AM
@cigien yeah, me too
 
@ppwater Yeah, I almost rejected your PR on the grounds that MS search showed no TP hits :(
 
Is there an easy way you're seeing pending PRs, @cigien?
 
@Mast Hmm, that's useful. Maybe I'll take the plunge then :)
 
8:39 AM
Yeah, I figured that. Is that the only way to check what watches are suggested and pending but not yet approved?
 
@CodyGray Um, doesn't that do that?
 
Yes, but it also shows other noise.
 
That contains only pending watches
Not blacklist req's tho
 
@CodyGray You learn to filter out the bottom X requests.
For a while, that has been 11.
 
Also, this requires opening a new tab :-)
Those who are paying attention know that I was seeking to avoid that. :-)
 
8:42 AM
I see a lot of userscripts in your future.
 
Only 9 of them currently running on this page...
On a SO question? 29.
 
9?
I'm at 2.
 
Poor Cody, so many tabs, so little time.
 
I'm at 3
 
AIM and FIRE, what's your list?
Spammers are asleep anyway.
 
8:44 AM
@Mast Is there already one to see pending PRs actually?
 
Upon further inspection, it looks like most of them are just failures to properly ignore chat.
 
CV Request Archiver, AIM and FIRE for me
 
Expand Short Links, Mod Popup Dialog Improvements (clearly irrelevant), No User Id in Share Links (clearly irrelevant), Personal Mod Message History (clearly irrelevant), Show Deleted Messages in Chat, Chat Redact Messages, CV Request Archiver, SE Chat custom notification sound, FIRE (currently considered pointless and probably will be removed soon)
 
Why's FIRE considered pointless?
 
@CodyGray FIRE is pointless?
ninja'ed :p
 
8:46 AM
I imagine it's not exactly the right tool for moderators, but it still works, right?
 
I literally don't see the point.
To be fair, my only intention is to handle SD reports on the site I moderate.
 
Ok, how do you provide feedback and flags?
 
Opening the MS page, and opening the post page.
 
@CodyGray Ah, so you don't flag but provide feedback from review.
 
I hate reading things in different views than the normal one.
 
8:47 AM
Saves you opening a tab...
 
So the preview that FIRE gives is not useful to me. I want to view the post as it would normally look. Saves me time to be in a familiar environment.
 
If you're only interested in the pages from SO, I can understand that.
 
Yeah
Primarily
I do look at other things if I happen to be here, and will give feedback on and flag them if appropriate. But since I have the tab open to view the post in its native environment already, I can just flag it from there.
What would be useful to me is a way to give SD feedback directly from the normal post page.
I believe that exists, and that I was also trying that at the same time as FIRE, and that I was confusing its functionality with FIRE, much to Makyen's confusion.
 
iBug/Lily: Executing automatic scheduled reboot.
 
@CodyGray I know there's a userscript that at least shows MS status of a post on the normal view, I'd imagine that being capable of providing feedback too.
 
8:58 AM
I have the one that adds a "smokey" link to the post quick-links. I think that was by Rob. I recently fixed it to work again after SE's latest changes to the quick-links, and submitted a PR.
That doesn't allow providing feedback, though; at least, not without visiting the MS page and providing feedback there directly.
