It'll be whenever Pops turns up
 
hmm.. Anyways, if it is somewhere at midnight, or early morning, I won't be able to show up
 
Yeah, that's fine. Transcripts are still gonna be around.

@ArtOfCode Whenever I spam flag a post, after someone with the US already has spam flagged and sent feedback, why does the US give an error? Has happened to me twice today, but does not happen if I am first to send feedback

@AshishAhujaツ what does the console say?
 
@ArtOfCode umm.. I did not check that.
I'll check that next time
 
@AshishAhujaツ Has not happened to me today yet although I did that several times already.
 
@ByteCommander then I think it should be something on my side. Lemme wait for a spam report to come..

@ArtOfCode Would it be possible to remove the error messages of NAA answers that I mark that aren't in metasmoke? API should return like a 200 response, not in metasmoke, and should fail gracefully.
 
11:34 AM
Yeah, that would be nice ^
 
I also agree
 
Alternatively is there a way to check if a post is in metasmoke before reporting?

I can change mine as often as I want without ever touching my diamonds
 
And you can ... undo such changes
Hey undo :)
 
@rene less backlog, more sleep
 
If that thing happens today as you predicted, when today will that be? I'm headed off from work in half an hour, so I'll be away for 30-40 min then
 
@Magisch after that, I'd expect
 
@Magisch I've been told afternoon US Eastern. That's (1) a few hours away, and (2) a rough estimate that probably isn't perfect.
 
1:57 PM
In maximum 8 hours from now I'm going to bed though
So I may miss it
 
so basically anytime before 1900 there is good for me
but meh, it'll happen when it happens
 
Its ~10 am in us eastern right now, right?
 
aye
@rene Your account was approved anyway, though. You'll have to log in again
I don't see any new unapproved ones
 
Should be fine. Afternoon usually doesn't extend beyong 6pm

@SmokeDetector What does that mean?
 
@ByteCommander Sometimes, the SE api returns a backoff, this means that smokey has requested to much data in a short period of time, smokey waits the time (in this situation 10 seconds) and then prints it here.
 
aha...
Thanks for explaining.

@ArtOfCode I will be here until approximately 21:00 BST, excepted when I have dinner.
I will ping Ashish, Magisch, GregP, Andy, Undo if you are not in the room as soon as Pops enters this room before 21:00 BST. I probably can have dinner before you leave.

Very little so far, I'm afraid. Been catching up after being out of the office a couple weeks, and it turns out I picked a busy time to be gone (not that there's ever a quiet time to be gone).
 
Let's be even clearer: what is this? Tim said feasibility study, is that right?
 
Indeed. So that means we're wide-open for suggestions. Awesome.
 
The short version is that Smokey is an awesome project, seems really effective, and Tim and I are curious if we can harness its signal in some way that hopefully doesn't rely on a few of you to always be around manually poking at your keyboards.
 
Hey
 
@Pops That I can work with ;)
So first, a lay of the land: There are really two relevant projects here; SmokeDetector itself and metasmoke. SmokeDetector is the thing on the front lines, that runs incoming stuff through all the magic regexes and whatnot we're using.
