Welcome to chat for: Puzzling
This is a general discussion room, but please feel free to create more subject-specific rooms (a single room with every possible discussion isn't very helpful)
For playing with chat features:


Where you can play with chat features (except flagging) and ch...
and remember; please read the FAQ ;p)
8:42 PM
2 messages moved to Trash
Nope :D
(Revenge for what you did on DS)
@Doorknob ... that's the wrong trashbin. This is the right one:
1 message moved to Trashcan
... the fact that there are so many trash bins probably says something about how active SE chat is. :P
@Doorknob Not really, it's just the actual trashcan is mod-only, so people created their own.
Ah, okay.
trashbin, trashcan, whatever. :P
8:45 PM
Anyway, must claim early post id.
Hey @WendiKidd
So far, this room has only been spoken in by mods. :D
Let's keep the streak going
Haha, that's awesome
I wonder why... shifty eyes xD
Whoohoo.... *I was the first one here.... y'll
@Doorknob kick all non-mods? :P
8:50 PM
A: Name the Chat Room

WendiKiddWe could follow the lead of the site's icon and just go with ????? (But then again not everyone shares my admittedly odd sense of humor.)

@KyleKanos - welcome .... and .... oops.
/is here to hash it out, as I was ordered
I like it!
(but I like outside the box too
Post id 13!!!
8:55 PM
Meta IDs 9/10. :P
Greetings, everyone.
Hey @Donald! (still keeping the only-mods-talk-here streak I see :P)
Hey @Donald.McLean - jinx on the sudoku
@Doorknob I think that to be a mod, you have to be naturally chatty.
@rolfl lol, @Do didn't really work there for you did it :P
8:58 PM
@rolfl Thanks for the welcome...but what's the oops for?
The streak has been broken :O
Evening all
Hey @KyleKanos - not really an oops ... just me being daft
Oh, okay
9:06 PM
This is a sarcastically non-witty chat message with the probably futile goal of getting the first star in this room. (But it might work.)
Let's try reverse-psychology: DON'T STAR THIS
@Doorknob All you ever have to do is ask :)
And for the Code Review-ers:
@WendiKidd :P It worked!
I had to
Button-pusher is my middle name
@Doorknob Yeeeeep. I will star just about anything. If people ask me for stars, they get 'em.
@KyleKanos haha, you and me both!
Well I gotta get packed up for home
Bye all
9:08 PM
@KyleKanos Come back soon!
Lol I edited one of your posts @Doorknob ... who has the rep to peer review me? :)
@durron597 You can always review edits on your own posts. Approved ;)
So I think these are all basically dupes:
Q: Focus on posting puzzles and solving them, or on the skill of doing so?

durron597Do we want the site to be more: Puzzle Questions "post a puzzle, people try to answer it" Questions ABOUT Puzzling "how do I write a puzzle?" / "how do I go about solving this puzzle? Here is what I've tried so far" Both are totally fine Other?

Q: Should questions about solving a specific puzzle be allowed?

DoorknobI'm talking about questions like: What is the solution to this cryptogram? FOO BAR BAZ or What word goes here in this crossword with the clue "foo of the bar" or How can I solve this logic grid puzzle? etc. Should these be accepted as on-topic? I myself am hesitant to say yes, ...

Q: Which questions are ON topic and which are not?

klm123Which questions are ON topic at puzzling.stackexchange and which are not?

Q: Is it on-topic to present specific logic puzzles or brainteasers as questions?

JaydlesThis Area 51 discussion suggests that posting brainteasers as questions should be allowed. I think these could be one of the most, accessible, interesting possible posts to keep the community engaged. (We're here because we like puzzles, right?) Eventually, we'll probably need to think as a gro...

We need to have a canonical discussion about that topic
Q: Should the "Share" link be returned to private betas now that they are not invite-only?

WendiKiddIt has recently come to my attention that you no longer have to commit/be invited to join a private beta (you can simply enter the site through area51 and register). In light of this fact, should the "Share" link be re-added to posts in private beta? I've seen this meta post where it was feature...

9:23 PM
I'm tempted to ask "How to solve 1x1 Rubik's Cube?"
Why did this have o happen while i was a schoo;?????
@TheDoctor I agree :P
oh no, people beat me to the chat room
@Doorknob That's easy, there's a YouTube video that shows how :P
Q: How to score challenges

TheDoctorI'm assuming we're going to have challenges on this site: Given two hourglasses, one lasting 4 minutes, and one lasting 7 minutes, how do you measure 9 minutes precisely? X mile desert crossed by camel, carrying bananas. Camel eats 1 banana per mile. Can carry up to Y bananas. Of Z bananas, how...

9:28 PM
@Doorknob hmm, mods fighting for first post, that could be fun :)
@AJHenderson Just delete everything! :P
I'm puzzled.
I should bring TARDIS in here :)
@TheDoctor You get a star for making that joke once; it will no longer be funny after this point
@TheDoctor Being a schoo is a terrible thing
9:37 PM
*to *I *at *school *?
I don't type well when i'm angry :P
No mistakes in there at all!
@MichaelMyers No, you got it all wrong! It's schoo;, not schoo! Remember, adding a ; to the end of everything is trendy!
And syntactically correct for C++
And a gazillion other programming languages
9:39 PM
@rolfl i like your suggested name for the chatroom

11:00 PM
@TheD - what is that bunch of black dots supposed to spell? It doesn't render in android
@RoryAlsop if you manage to see it without line wrapping, it says Puzzling
Ahhhh. Lovely
11:32 PM
yep - I see it now on a PC. Nice work, @Thed
