@NVZ Each device using the Stack Exchange API gets a quota of requests it can perform each day. Unauthenticated clients get 300, and everyone else except Smokey gets 10,000. Smokey gets 20,000.
okay, so smokey rests after 20,000?
@NVZ yep can't poll
6:39 PM
or does smokey have more clones?
@YvetteColomb poll?
@NVZ We’ve never [citation needed] reached the limit.
sorry, i'm not a programmer or anything. :)
If it does, it can’t fetch posts from SE, which pretty much makes it useless. Fortunately, quota is per-IP, so we can switch to another instance.
@NVZ what he said - which is also what you're saying - can a clone do it - so it can be run from another pc
@NVZ Don’t worry, lots of Charcoalers aren’t either :)
6:41 PM
ah, so smokey is all knowing, all powerful, transcendent
@NVZ like a magic 8 ball? yes
smokey is a god.
there's a new church of smokey starting up :)
i hope that day doesn't come when smokey insists on having a partner, and then takes over the world.
6:43 PM
@Mithrandir Whaddya mean, 'wut'? Humans...
@NVZ ? why a partner?
@YvetteColomb smokey is lonely, and actively looking for company, i can tell.

@NVZ I saw that in socvr :)
@YvetteColomb saw what?
6:51 PM
@NVZ dropping into the socvr and quickly leaving - twice
i'm confused
did you get that ping from that room?
@YvetteColomb i clicked your link to socvr, duh! :P
i peaked in there a second time to see what you were talking about.
@NVZ yeh I know
I'm teasing you
I see you're a high rep user on English
6:55 PM
@YvetteColomb i know you are, but what am i? ;)
I have found my grammar has deteriorated with the advent of online social networking
@NVZ a dizzying array of random letters
@YvetteColomb i'm on the awkward silence now more often, nay always.
@YvetteColomb nothing is random, if yanno how to look at it. :)
@NVZ I have it favourited, but am not chatting much there. I'm in too many rooms
@NVZ do you pronounce the Z zed or zee?
@YvetteColomb you are in too many rooms, and we're chatting back and forth across all the rooms. lol
@NVZ ikr
6:59 PM
@YvetteColomb mostly i pronounce it as Z, but sometimes Z.
@NVZ I hate you :D lololol
@YvetteColomb and i hate you for pinging me throughout the network of chats. please staahp. pick one room. :P
@NVZ is that not what you tried to do to me earlier?
I just tend to answer depending on what room I am most currently in
as all the tabs are open anyway
@NVZ I took it to tavern so we weren't cluttering up smokes work :)
@RoryAlsop are we all sick? lol
7:28 PM
@YvetteColomb heh

Conflicting feedback on Of the shoah (holocaust) witnesses.
9:28 PM
@DJMcMayhem That's the holocaust troll. Please flag as rude/abusive.
Oh, I've never seen that before
9:47 PM
It’s kind of funny reading all of their posts at once.
@YvetteColomb can you change your feedback on the one you fp-ed in that search results list?
10:02 PM
@JF hm?
have you got a link?
oh never mind done
@SmokeDetector Anyone know why that happens?
Urgh mobile typing
@NVZ that wouldn't help. Our biggest spammer group (and I assume the majority of the others do this too) has their human workers register an account and then either manually type out or copy-paste some text into a question and then submit it. They get paid when they show some sort of proof that they posted it (we assume a screenshot). Anyway, forcing registration wouldn't do anything because it's humans, not bots, doing the spamming already.
How do we know this? One of our members (I think Undo) went undercover a while ago and tried to sign up to be a spammer.
