yay

hi
is stalker
am i welcome, or should i leave? :P (i'll try to keep spamming to a minimum if you do let me stay)

Yes
(yay for ambiguity)
Anyway, so let's first figure out our plan.

@Doorknob [welcome,leave][True] == leave

8:49 PM
@Trimsty Why are you using a language that automatically casts boolean to int? :P

@Doorknob hey, I like python

@Doorknob Because why wouldn't you?
def is_factor(n, i): return not n%i
AHEM anyway

yeah, let's not code in a meta chat :P

def is_factor n, i; n % i != 0; end

So, CT purge? I didn't get most of it. Can I be filled in?

8:51 PM
Okay, back on topic. As if we ever were there in the first place :P
@Trimsty The plan
4

(if this is a competition, i'll continue the spam with is_factor=lambda n,i=return~n%i)
Hi @mniip :D

... can't resist: {%!}:is_factor;

nobody can ignore the code

What is this place with just so many wonders

@Doorknob thanks

8:53 PM
In theory it's where we talk about stamping out code trolling In practice, we're writing functions to test if i is a factor of n.

Lol

@Doorknob Socially awkward penguin strikes again ;3
@Doorknob ...in meta

Okay @Doorknob so what of those actions needs actual preparation
one of the questions has already been retagged
(trolling the troll is now underhanded)
we need to write up a new tag wiki

Test if i is a factor of n?
((0==).).mod

8:55 PM
we need to make a list of CTs to be closed and a list to be deleted

Okay, so let's get a general idea of what we're doing here:
1. Close ALL the code-trolling
2. Get a mod to lock the "popular" ones
4. Enforce new rules (tag wiki, etc.)

@mniip that made me laugh louder than it should have...

still, you forgot
0. retag the three better ones
/two

I don't know if deletion is necessary. We can keep them around as artifacts of What Might Have Been

Ah, right.

8:56 PM
@Doorknob Perhaps we need to assess what's wrong with the bad code-trolling ones as opposed to the good ones?

4

@Doorknob The post doesn't cover that in bright light according to my skimming

points @Trimsty towards pinned message
It does.

@Trimsty I think that the largest problem with that is define "good one", because I sure haven't seen any.

I think we should decide on a case-by-case basis for the worst posts

8:57 PM
That would be good.

there are only 24 questions in total, it can't take that long

@Doorknob @undergroundmonorail ;_; i'm terrible :P

if (post.score >= 5 || make_decision(post) == GOOD) lock(); else kill_with_fire();

There's only 24 CT questions? I thought they were way more than that.

@Trimsty I tried to assess what's bad with the bad ones quite clearly. They are all too broad, because CT requires only minimal relevance to the topic.

8:58 PM
@Doorknob you didn't import lang.combustion

The good ones were good because they weren't plain code trolling (or code trolling at all)
@Doorknob agreed

@m.buettner Ah, okay
So, let's divide up the questions and take an unwarranted quantity of notes?

I heard there are only 24?

Hmm, we need some way to collaborate on this

that's not a lot of work

9:00 PM
I'm making a google docs form where you can vote for "keep" "delete" or "indifferent".
there's only 24, it won't take long

Great! Thanks @undergroundmonorail.
Have a field for username too, so people don't vote twice. :P

@Doorknob We could collaborate on typing the previously mentioned ludicrous invocations of linguistic structure? :P
aw, I have to go now D:
bye

SEe you

Bye

9:03 PM
After undergroundmonorail makes the form, I'll write up a meta post about it.

do I have your leave to retag:
[the original](http://codegolf.stackexchange.com/questions/16226/i-need-a-program-where-the-user-inputs-an-array-of-doubles-and-the-program-outpu) by removing code-trolling, code-challenge and the disclaimer
[the multiplication one](http://codegolf.stackexchange.com/questions/18254/how-to-write-a-c-program-for-multiplication-without-using-the-and-operators) by exchanging code-trolling for restricted-source
?
dafuq, I forgot markdown

o-O I'm pretty sure it's [text](url)

yeah it doesn't work

Uhhh... let's hold off on that for a bit while we get stuff organized.
Markdown doesn't work in multiline messages.

9:06 PM
oh
why is that?

No idea
@undergroundmonorail Will the form just be a big list of the questions? There should probably be a user(name|id) field to avoid duplicate submissions

Perhaps implying that multiline messages are for pasting chunks of code? Not sure why still have four spaces thing, then, though..

@Doorknob I'm asking for username. There's no reason people won't lie, but it's a start

Alright. Great

If there's dupes, we can always ask people what they really voted

9:08 PM
@mniip Because reasons!

/me scripts a thingmabob to flood the form

@mniip Are you going to
TROLL WITH CODE?

>:O

That's meta

@undergroundmonorail 24 undeleted ones.

9:15 PM
I see 23 here

@Doorknob > finger doorknob

The form is done, with the exception of the phantom question I may need to track down?

no plan

Yeah sorry my count was before trolling the troll was retagged.

It's nothing pretty but it works
Oh, okay

9:16 PM
23 should be correct

@Howard Ew...

Heh

In that case, here it is. It's probably best if no one votes yet, in case something needs be changed, but you can see it in all its glory.

Wonderful!

google docs has actual forms :O

9:17 PM
I made every question required but included an "indifferent" answer, because I don't want apathy to be the default.
I want you to have to decide that you don't care.

clever

That's meta

say it again

I'm So Meta, Even This Acronym

yay, xkcd

9:19 PM
xkcd! :D

It says answering all questions is mandatory?

Yeah, but there's an "indifferent" option for each one

####ImSoMetaEvenThisAcronym

And if I am indifferent about being indifferent?

> I made every question required but included an "indifferent" answer, because I don't want apathy to be the default.

9:19 PM
I wonder if anyone gets that reference

That's not the quote syntax

@mniip Cool, thanks

@mniip 917?

Or just this:

in The Nineteenth Byte, 23 hours ago, by TheDoctor
And I went up there, I said, "Shrink, I want to kill. I mean, I wanna, I
Wanna kill. Kill. I wanna, I wanna see, I wanna see blood and gore and
Guts and veins in my teeth. Eat dead burnt bodies. I mean kill, Kill,
KILL, KILL." And I started jumpin up and down yelling, "KILL, KILL," and
He started jumpin up and down with me and we was both jumping up and down
Yelling, "KILL, KILL." And the sargent came over, pinned a medal on me,
Sent me down the hall, said, "You're our boy."

@Howard ...no?

Anyway, I have to go to a tennis lesson. If anyone's interested in writing a meta post, post that in here when you're done and I'll pin it when I get back

... can I join in on the fun?

@hic only if you hate code-trolling!

@TheDoctor @hi doesn't ping me, @hic does, though.

9:23 PM
Wierd

@undergroundmonorail can I fill the form yet

I'm filling it out real quick to make sure it actually works
I'm almost done though

Wut form?

Yep, it works

9:26 PM
supersecret codetrollingdeletion uberform

People fill it out now, if they like

Done de done

Until we get a meta post up, can someone please star ^ so it goes ->
Thank <3

welcome

I just realized I didn't make the "username" field mandatory. Fixed.

9:32 PM
done voting

Halfway through

______________
*) not

I'm in a car
I wonder if I can pin from mobile? I'll just use the full site. :-P

Hidoorknob
Can you add me as room owner?

9:36 PM
Maybe the statistics might be a bit biased since the form was only published here.

It's going to get posted in Meta
you guys just got the sneak preview ;)

Yeah someone needs to write a meta post
I might when I get back from tennis

I'm writing one now, unless someone else wants to handle it

Alright, great

9:38 PM
@TheDoctor @Doorknob is that okay with you?

@Doorknob roughly when is that gonna be? (timezones and stuff...)

@m.buettner ... a long time. Tennis is 2 hours long starting in ~5 mins
undergroundmonorail is writing it though.

@Doorknob can I add TheDoctor as room owner?

... why? @hichris @thedoc

aaand done

9:40 PM
@Doorknob idk, just this:
7 mins ago, by TheDoctor

@TheDoctor ?

Need to pin some important stuffs

... like what? Just tell me and I will

nevermind. I thought you couldn't from a car

He's just asking for ops. Ignore him

9:43 PM
I can; there's a "full site" button
Lol

@undergroundmonorail can I see the stats

I'll link to that in the meta post, too
In case people are curious

Yo

Yay! Okay, I have to leave now. I'll be back in ~2 hours, and I'll vote on the poll

9:45 PM
On phone 3:

Have fun

Bai :c

Hi and bye

:P

fancy

9:47 PM
Is there an actual form? :P

yeah
it's pinned

Cool, hanks
multiple hank

Phone can't see pinned stuff :c

9:48 PM
@Trimsty Here you go

Tysm :D

@undergroundmonorail btw, although you included all questions, I think deletion of questions with a certain number of upvotes or highly upvoted answers shouldn't be up for discussion. doorknob suggested a threshold of 5, I'd say 10. but in general, no matter how much you despise a question, it doesn't seem fair to people who put effort into the answers to rob them of the 300-700 rep they gained out of them.

@m.buettner I'm not certain that the results of this vote should be the be-all, end-all, just an indicaor of which ones the community thinks are worth keeping. I'll make that clear in the meta post
@TheDoctor I believe so

@undergroundmonorail thanks, just wanted to make sure you do ;)

9:53 PM
Should I put a time limit on votes or should I leave that open-ended?
Also, tags? , ?

say by the weekend?
yeah tags sound good

Submitted. Seems my opinions differ again :p

I just came to say "Good work, guys!"

/me logs in

Bye bye

9:58 PM
@Trimsty that's what opinions are there for
@Rusher thanks. really.
ha I knew I could ping you back in here :P

@m.buettner Lol yea you got me.

I wish i could be on my pc now
And that it wasn't midnight

goddamn google won't let me do things

Just hit 00:00

If someone wants to edit that, they're more than welcome

10:02 PM
should we mention this chat room in the post?

That might be a good idea

"If you want to be more involved than just voting on these question, get in the chat room!"

@undergroundmonorail sweet! But i can't seem to figure out what would be appropriate for a reply to that
And I really wanna type a wall of text now

@undergroundmonorail Upvoted but wish was more concise

rusher has a point about the question title... it's cool for the chat room, but somewhat unnecessarily polemic for a meta post

10:05 PM
I just got something down so that something would be down, I can modify it some more

Phone's battery is dead, cya later :j

I have to go for a bit, but when I come back I can fix stuff up (or someone else can edit it if they feel like doing it)
See you

see you
