@ZachSaucier I 'promoted' you in the MSE tavern, looks like good results.
 
1:25 AM
Finally customized my LH bio. xD
No one has commented under either my or Shokhet's nominations yet.
 
@J.Musser doorknob's help is good too
but thanks :)

doubled my helpful flags on SO in 3 days thanks to you @J.Musser xD

@apaul34208 Just out of curiosity, do you really have a mohawk that's near 18" tall? o_O

@ZachSaucier 500,000 cat gifs, please!
 
this will fill up the chat for a while...
... 499,997 later ...
 
@ZachSaucier doesn't count
 
:D
Any reasons for DV? ... or is this a popularity contest? — Phlume yesterday
On his own post.
Do you know what I wanna do?
 
4:07 AM
nope
 
> Any reasons for UV? ... or is this a popularity contest? — J. Musser just for fun
On my nomination
jk
:D
 
@J.Musser Yes, yes I do.
 
@ZachSaucier Ok, ok, you might not be half bad.
reverses downvote
 
lol
@apaul34208 Hmm, that's cool
 
4:15 AM
Ah, nopenopenope, forget it. vote lock.
 
How do you sleep?
 
@bjb568 why, thank you!
 
That is a nice gif.
 
@bjb568 edited :D
 
I don't put it up very often anymore I'm getting old and it smacks of effort
 
4:16 AM
any reason why you changed your mind?
 
@ZachSaucier wat
YOU BETTER ROLL BACK
 
@apaul34208 How long did it take for you to grow that?
 
@bjb568 lol kk
 
as a manual grace period edit
d'oh

any reason why you changed your mind?
I'm curious also
 
4:18 AM
Respect for my species.
 
Ok that's a great reason.
 
If you sleep on your side the mohawk will sort of rest on the pillow and you can tweak it into shape with a little water in the morning. It took a little more than a year to grow. Gotta go...
 
@apaul34208 ok, cya later
Now @Zach and I have the same amount of dv's.
 
 
2 hours later…
6:00 AM
@J.Musser Thanks for the nomination :) ....I actually wasn't expecting it.
I would have nominated you, but I see that someone's already done it. ....and it's the top-voted answer, which means that voting on Meta works :)

@Mooseman Sorry to hear that :/
 
 
3 hours later…
5:29 PM
@Mooseman I saw/wondered why.
@Mooseman well 9 people liked you.
@Shokhet 'Which means voting on meta works' - What's that supposed to mean?
 
I wondered that too
 
Neither of your nominees ave accepted yet @Zach.
 
Sterno isn't sure about the site yet
matt is just AFK
 
I'm not 'sure' about the site yet. I'm optimistic, but it wouldn't be hard for it to take a bad turn.
 
same
 
5:39 PM
Hey Everyone!
 
Merry Christmas!
 
@ZachSaucier Its not Christmas. But happy holiday to you.
 
it nearly is
 
@ZachSaucier Merry Christmas!
@ZachSaucier yeah, tomorrow.
at least here
 
Has anyone noticed that this site has been getting more product suggestion answers. What to do about this?
@J.Musser Happy Holiday!
 
5:43 PM
Why did you capitalize holiday?
 
@ZachSaucier Happy Christmas Eve, correction.
@J.Musser Because I thought it was capital
 
Holiday?
Not usually.
lel
 
@J.Musser What does lel mean?
@J.Musser I didn't know.
 
@iliveunderawesomerock lol
 
@J.Musser I don't understand.
This is what I think of the whole Life Hack Stack Exchange:
(removed)
 
5:47 PM
@iliveunderawesomerock y?
 
@J.Musser Do I have to Google everything you write? What does y? mean?
 
@iliveunderawesomerock Why?
Sorry I forgot
 
@J.Musser Forgot about what?
 
@iliveunderawesomerock That you don't know english that well.
 
@J.Musser I know English, I am American, I am English
 
5:51 PM
now you lie?
 
@ZachSaucier How do you know it is a lie?
 
because your English knowledge is far from a native's
it's good, yes, but far from native
 
Here we go again...
 
@ZachSaucier It is not! How do you know are you from the America's?
 
XD
 
5:53 PM
it's not worth arguing
 
@ZachSaucier It is :) I am American
 
@J.Musser do you have a chat application like google hangouts or something?
 
@iliveunderawesomerock Who was the vice-president under John Quincy Adams?
@ZachSaucier No, not currently.
 
that's google-able
 
Ok, took too long,
Not American
:D
jk
 
5:56 PM
@J.Musser John C. Calhoun

Ok, took too long,
 
@J.Musser I have slow internet, I didn't see your question.
 
slow internet - NOT IN US jk
 
@iliveunderawesomerock You have slow internet - took too long to google. xD
 
no one even sings that song anymore
 
5:58 PM
@J.Musser That's not fair! You must be a American to be a "expert" :)
@ZachSaucier Then what do they sing?
 
lol
 
you should know
 
Man, that's amn old one.
 
haven't heard it in years
 
@ZachSaucier Well, I don't. I don't keep up to date with the most patriotic song.
 
6:01 PM
It's from 1910.
BAHAHAHHA!
sorry, that was funny
 
@J.Musser Its American so its ageless.
 
@iliveunderawesomerock Are you ageless?
 
@J.Musser check the link in my last post
 
@J.Musser I don't know yet :)
 
6:04 PM
@ZachSaucier You are so mean :/
 
not at all
I'm keeping the chat clean

@ZachSaucier That's a American Song!
 
and...? It's spam
 
@ZachSaucier Is Trash a real room?
 
6:05 PM
@ZachSaucier I am "Undimmed by human tears!"
@ZachSaucier Theirs noone else in Trash, where are they?
 
4 messages moved to Trash
@iliveunderawesomerock Please stop spamming or else I'll have to kick you
 
@ZachSaucier That seems fun!
Hello Ben, welcome to Life Hacks Chat!
Oh dear, I just read this "A place for trash messages from other chatrooms". That is so mean.
 
not at all
you post spam -> spam goes in trash
 
@ZachSaucier But how do know its Spam :)
 
because it's off topic for this room and a whole bunch of it that no one wants to read
 
6:15 PM
@ZachSaucier I am thinking of writing a post on the recent influx of product suggestion answers. Thoughts on this?
 
we already have them
what do you have to add?
 
@ZachSaucier Do we where?

A: Should we be downvoting conventional answers?

Zach SaucierNo. We each have a different background, often times a different culture as well. What's conventional for you very well may not be conventional for me. Simply because that's the case does not give reason to downvote. As such, it's impossible to determine what culture (and therefore convention) a...

 
@ZachSaucier I guess. But my post was what to do about this problem
 
that's what we do
discourage in comments, if the answer quality is poor we can downvote
While this is a solution, it's not very lifehacky because not many people have this laying around in their house. To make it a good answer, you could include a way to create this using household goods — Zach Saucier 4 hours ago
This is not much of a lifehack as most people don't have this lying around their house. To make this a good answer, you could include a way to create something similar using goods found in a household — Zach Saucier 23 hours ago
etc.
 
6:19 PM
@ZachSaucier Ok I agree.
 
if it's a joke answer that's different...
 
lifehacks.stackexchange.com/questions/2195/… Should this be downvoted due to not specifying what was tried
 
gtg, later folks
 
@J.Musser Bye
 
@iliveunderawesomerock if I downvoted it'd be because it's not clear what it's asking. Not because what they've tried, see meta.lifehacks.stackexchange.com/a/1262/78
@J.Musser see ya, mate
 
6:22 PM
@ZachSaucier I think so. Thank You.
 
@ZachSaucier I was thinking about answering should I put that on hold.
@ZachSaucier What does that mean?
 
I try not to VTC until a while after they post - give them time to add based on comments
if they fail to, then close it
@iliveunderawesomerock no problem
 
@ZachSaucier OH!
 
googling "urban np" would give the answer
hello @MattS.
 
6:24 PM
@ZachSaucier To much work
 
sad to see you remove your nomination
 
Ben
Hi @iliveunderawesomerock
 
@iliveunderawesomerock "too"*, and since that's true I'll not tell you next time
 
@ZachSaucier That's not nice, how do I know which np is the right one?
 
context
 
6:25 PM
@Ben Hi Ben, what brings you here?
@ZachSaucier I knew it was "to"
 
it's not "to", it's "too" like I said.
 
@ZachSaucier They didn't teach context in my school
 
Ben
Just checking it out
 
@iliveunderawesomerock do you even know what context means?
 
@ZachSaucier Oh, well I still knew it.
@ZachSaucier Yes, I do. I am American.
@Ben Well, I hope these are going well for you here :)
 
6:27 PM
@iliveunderawesomerock that's a load of bologna unless you moved here recently.
 
@ZachSaucier I've been here for years.
 
afk, eating
 
Context meaning: the circumstances that form the setting for an event, statement, or idea, and in terms of which it can be fully understood and assessed.
@ZachSaucier Bye
 
6:45 PM
@iliveunderawesomerock thanks, Oxford dictionary
 
@ZachSaucier Actually the Google dictionary and who eats this early.
 
you obviously don't know what time it is here.
I find it very hard to continue discussing things with you, you make me not want to because of your behavior
 
@ZachSaucier In where?
@ZachSaucier I'm sorry. I didn't know I was being a problem.
 
7:09 PM
@J.Musser It means that things are working as they should, and your nomination is the top-voted one. What wasn't clear about that? cc @ZachSaucier
 
it just wasn't something we thought was needed to be said - hence why we were curious if you were trying to say something else
 
@Shokhet Hello!
 
@iliveunderawesomerock Hi!
@ZachSaucier No, I wasn't trying to say something else; it was just a congratulatory remark.
What else could it have been?
 
@Shokhet Sterno hasn't accepted so does that mean that you will become a mod if that user doesn't
 
@Shokhet dunno, but it wasn't clear :)
@iliveunderawesomerock votes only show who the community thinks is best. The staff still picks them
 
7:13 PM
@iliveunderawesomerock No, this isn't an election. SE staff will select pro tem mods -- this voting is just to make selecting candidates easier
 
also who is willing to do it
 
The selected mods don't even have to be on that list, if SE staff feels that some other user would make a better moderator
 
@ZachSaucier But then why are we voting if the Staff is going to pick? I thought it was what the community wanted.
 
and they're willing
> this voting is just to make selecting candidates easier
please read what we type
 
I'm I so confused.
So what happens if someone is a bad mod, does that mean that users hold another election.
 
7:15 PM
SE staff will probably take away their mod privileges, and appoint another. When we graduate, we'll have a regular, democratic election
 
@Shokhet not the first time AFAIK
the first ones are appointed
 
@Shokhet OK, I guess.
 
@ZachSaucier I'm not sure about that.....there's probably an MSE post on this somewhere. Regardless, it's a little while till we have to worry about this.
 
Am I the only person who thinks this question has low quality answers lifehacks.stackexchange.com/questions/166/… I am not trying to nitpick, just saying.
 
@Shokhet meta.lifehacks.stackexchange.com/questions/1284/… the linked SE posts agree with me I believe
@iliveunderawesomerock they're not great answers, yes
hence the bounty to improve them
 
7:18 PM
@ZachSaucier I'll have to take a look; thanks for the links!
 
@ZachSaucier Oh, I see. I don't think bounties really work that well.
 
think what you'd like
 
@iliveunderawesomerock The top-voted answer is pretty good, don't you think?
cc @DoorHandle
 
@Shokhet Yes, but the others are pretty small.
@ZachSaucier A lot of users don't improve posts just due to bounties. And some post even worse answers.
 
2 mins ago, by Zach Saucier
think what you'd like
 
@iliveunderawesomerock I don't understand. What is that proof of?
 
@Shokhet The answers seem really poor and the answer that came after the bounty was not bounty quality.
 
@iliveunderawesomerock this is the type of thing that makes me not want to discuss things with you :P
I have to reiterate myself multiple times because it seems that you don't seem to take the time to think enough to understand what I'm saying
 
@iliveunderawesomerock I don't think that "the answer that came after the bounty was not bounty quality." ....it looked pretty good, IMO
 
@ZachSaucier Were having a communication barrier. Sorry. But I really don't understand.
@Shokhet It didn't really give a realistic answer in my opinion.
 
7:28 PM
@iliveunderawesomerock Okay. So keep the bounty and 140+ rep points :P
.....or give it all away in a bounty :P
 
@Shokhet Its not about rep. When I talk about rep meaning something I am just joking.
 
@iliveunderawesomerock I know....some people really care about rep, and can't stand a single downvote on their answers, God forbid. I don't either really care about "imaginary internet points" ;-)
 
Its more about the awesome community and participation. I don't join WikiHow, because I wanted rising stars. It is a good helpful place.
 
@iliveunderawesomerock This is someone who has his head screwed on straight.
@iliveunderawesomerock I didn't know wikiHow had a star system....interesting.
 
@Shokhet Downvoters should tell why they downvoted, I don't agree with people having a MI over it. Internet points are internet points.
 
7:32 PM
@iliveunderawesomerock MI = ?
@iliveunderawesomerock "Downvoters should tell why they downvoted" .....a lot of the time, but it's not always necessary.
 
@Shokhet They give stars to good articles, they have community achievements and list notable users, they give barn stars, they have welcomers, they are really nice
@Shokhet Not all the time, but sometimes the problem in the article is not apparent to other users. So you should explain.
 
@iliveunderawesomerock Cool. I really mostly only hang around SE, because there's an absolutely amazing community over by Mi Yodeya :)
 
@Shokhet Myocardial Infarction, AKA coronary, heart attack, etc
 
@iliveunderawesomerock Got it.
 
@Shokhet I wanted to join a SE religious site, but I thought against it.
 
7:37 PM
@iliveunderawesomerock A lot of the time, if you can explain what is wrong in a friendly, neutral tone -- go for it! .....if it should be obvious what's wrong, then it's not necessary. OTOH, we shouldn't require it, because not everyone is capable of keeping a friendly, or even neutral tone, and leaving DV comments will just start flame wars
@iliveunderawesomerock If you don't mind my asking, which site?
Hello @Scimonster :)
 
@Shokhet I just see a lot of people that are not tolerate of "certain" religions and some of the stuff I don't agree with them about. Religion is a hot topic and users can get a little feisty about it.
@Scimonster Hi!
 
@Shokhet You can probably guess how i wandered in here. :P

in The Junk Drawer, 2 mins ago, by Shokhet
@iliveunderawesomerock Cool. I really mostly only hang around SE, because there's an absolutely amazing community over by Mi Yodeya :)
 
@iliveunderawesomerock That's a fair point. I can't speak for the other religion's sites, but MY doesn't have an issue with that.
@Scimonster :P
 
@Shokhet I agree, that is why I didn't renominate myself for election. Because I am not that friendly and I need some more experience in moderating.
 
@iliveunderawesomerock To be honest, you need to learn English better than you know it now to be a mod
 
7:42 PM
@Shokhet Have you read this judaism.stackexchange.com/users/472/monica-cellio that didn't seem to be to friendly if someone was ran off.
@Shokhet My example of religion is a lot different than other peoples. I don't think I have anything to add to the other SE's on that.
 
@iliveunderawesomerock Yeah, we've discussed the problems with BH on Mi Yodeya's chat.
 
@iliveunderawesomerock Yes, I did read that. Monica is one of the moderators on MY, and is warning the people on Mi Yodeya (who are predominantly religiously Jewish) about potential issues they might have if they try to use what is ostensibly a religiously neutral site.
 
@ZachSaucier I agree. But I also need more experience moderating and being nice and social.
@Scimonster and @Shokhet IDK, I wasn't there. I still don't think I will be any help on the religious SE's.
For the record everyone I wasn't talking about Mi Yodeya, I was talking about all religious SE sites. And I'm not insulting no one.
 
@iliveunderawesomerock No offense taken, don't worry about it :)
 
Same.
 
7:50 PM
@Scimonster and @Shokhet Thanks. For the record there are a lot of SE sites I don't want to be a part of ever and not because of religion. I fully expect to join a religion SE in the future.
 
8:03 PM
@iliveunderawesomerock hi. Yeah, as Shokhet said, that's a warning to the great folks on Mi Yodeya not to get sucked into the one religion site on the network that claims to be one thing and is actually another. With the overt religion sites you know what you're getting into. And I think Mi Yodeya does a good job of being a welcoming religion site, but obviously I'm biased.
 
@MonicaCellio I haven't got involved yet, but I am sure the religious SE's are more than welcoming. But like all sites you have "some users". People get to excited, I guess.
 
@MonicaCellio How can you be biased?! You have accounts on the other ones as well!
 
@MonicaCellio Hi, I didn't notice you were a part of LifeHacks.
 
@iliveunderawesomerock the issue with BH is that it claims to be non-religious, wants everybody to participate -- but supports Christian evangelism in posts there. There's a presumption of Christianity (and specifically a particular Protestant perspective), so if you're some other religion it can get pretty icky.
@Scimonster I've even asked some questions on Christianity.SE. I've no complaint with them.
@iliveunderawesomerock I slipped in to take a peek during the private beta 'cause I was really curious about the site. I haven't really participated yet.
 
@MonicaCellio I am not really into any site that's religious yet, but that may be coming. I really hope people aren't very mean, that would sour everything for me.
 
8:09 PM
@iliveunderawesomerock Mi Yodeya users are very nice.
Can't speak for any of the other sites.
 
@MonicaCellio Well, I hope you enjoy your stay here. We'll be getting mods soon so yay.
@Scimonster That's good to know if that is the religious SE for me.
 
@iliveunderawesomerock congrats on public beta and your upcoming mods!
 
@iliveunderawesomerock Just, if people bring non-Jewish sources, that's not always so well-received (gets DVs)
 
@iliveunderawesomerock understood. Feel free to visit any time. There are usually folks hanging around in our chat room too; you're welcome to pop in there if you like.
 
@MonicaCellio Thanks, Congrats on being a mod :)
@Scimonster I see
@MonicaCellio I really may just do that.
 
8:13 PM
@Scimonster right -- it's a site about Judaism, after all. Sincerely-asked questions from Christians, Muslims, atheists, etc will do well; ones that assume the teachings of another religion to be true, not so much.
 
we could use some more questions
it's fairly slow for a new public beta
 
@ZachSaucier I have a couple of questions, but I have to type them up.
 
@iliveunderawesomerock If you do it from the app, you get a hat!
@ZachSaucier It must be because we had so much activity in private beta, so there are no more questions. ;P
 
@Scimonster I do not have a iPhone or any type of smartphone.
 
my guess is not many new people have joined yet
 
8:17 PM
@iliveunderawesomerock It's also available for Android tablets and iPads (the latter is mine).
 
@Scimonster I do not have any of that stuff :) But I am not a hat kind of user.
 
@iliveunderawesomerock There are also emulators. But OK, you don't have to be a hat chaser. :)
 
 
3 hours later…
11:16 PM
@Shokhet If it's good, accept it! :P
 
@DoorHandle I really should, right? ....I think I'll wait a bit and see what the bounty brings.....if nothing better shows up I will accept that one :)
 
i feel bad that i'm not here more often
i know that.
 
^^^ Meant to erase that, didn't mean to hit enter :P
I wish you'd be around here more often, also
 
 
@DoorHandle Is that a blank message?

@Shokhet Maybe.
