@Zanna Your answer in meta is a good one!
I have a suggestion..
Can we make the Q and A more like FAQ style?
@technastic_tc I guess "good" is an understatement. Your answer is great!
Hey @jokerdino! Since you were there in the RotLD room since the starting, it would be great if you can add any other additional info in Zanna's answer.
 
11:14 AM
@technastic_tc thanks :)
@technastic_tc how do you mean?
 
Something like the ones in MSE..

A: What are "Community Wiki" posts?

Justin StandardWhy have Community Wiki posts? One of the goals of the website is to be a continually evolving source of good information. Community Wiki posts help enhance the wiki aspect of the site. For more information about the proper use of community wiki, see The Future of Community Wiki. How do Community...

@Zanna Welcome!
 
I am disinclined to restructure my answer as I feel the topic has most appeal as a story. It's not like the history of that room is essential knowledge for AU users :) Perhaps someone else would like to post in a different style
 
@technastic_tc there is nothing much I can add I am afraid
 
@jokerdino ok!
 
11:20 AM
the room was created for utilizing roomba back in 2012?
 
How are you BTW?
 
yes I am alright, thanks
 
@jokerdino The cyclone didn't affect your area right?
Welcome!
 
@technastic_tc it definitely did, I had no internet until just this afternoon
 
@jokerdino oh!
I hope everything is fine now.
 
11:21 AM
same
 
@jokerdino Nothing about Roomba is mentioned in the answer. Do add it when you can.
 
downvote --> roomba
 
Roomba is a bot right?
 
it's a script
 
Thanks for the info!
But the weird thing is the word "Roomba" is not even mentioned once in the article..
 
11:28 AM
what article?
roomba is a trademark I believe
 
@jokerdino The article which you shared..
It's a robot vacuum...
 
 
2 hours later…
1:48 PM
@jokerdino added that link to my answer
 
 
1 hour later…
2:51 PM
@technastic_tc, Thanks, I very like your meta.askubuntu.com/questions/19335/whats-your-ubuntu-story post. =D Maybe later I will add my own story ^_^
 
You're welcome @Benny. I will be waiting to read your story :)
 
not today :D
 
ok :)
 
3:05 PM
@BeastOfCaerbannog Sorry in case if you feel like I'm nagging. I just wanted to remind you about this: chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/message/55930871#55930871
When I published my What's your Ubuntu story? post in meta, I felt it was a catchy title and I thought I was the first one to use the phrase Ubuntu story. I was mistaken. @jokerdino was the first one to use the phrase (as far as what I searched) in SE chat. chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/201?m=13264494#13264494
May the credits for the phrase go to @jokerdino!
 
3:47 PM
@technastic_tc Thanks.
 
@jokerdino You're welcome. Since you were the first one to use the phrase, I guess it becomes obligatory for you to post your Ubuntu story.
Just kidding.
But please do post your story :)
 
My story is on my blog.
written in teenage angst
 
Can you share the link of the particular article in the blog?
There are many articles..
 
4:05 PM
@technastic_tc bear in mind that not everyone wants to give out details about themselves publicly. Maybe ease up a little on this?
 
@terdon My bad! Sorry for nagging.
 
@technastic_tc Oct 2011
 
No worries. It's a nice sentiment, just not everyone might want to answer.
 
I barely have 5 blog posts -.- It's not that hard to find it
 
4:08 PM
@terdon I didn't understand "It's a nice sentiment".
 
@technastic_tc I just mean that I understand you are doing it for good reasons.
 
@terdon ok..
@terdon :)
@jokerdino there were 28 articles in Ubuntu category..
 
@technastic_tc o.O
I also was a professional procrastinator.
 
oh ok
 
4:12 PM
@jokerdino ok..
 
@jokerdino Apparently not quite as good at it as you thought :P
#procrastinationFail
 
I never said I was good at it :P
 
4:28 PM
Well, you claimed to be a pro!
 
were you getting paid for it?
 
 
1 hour later…
6:04 PM
@technastic_tc Done. I hope it's OK, since I'm not good at writing essays and especially about my self.
 
@BeastOfCaerbannog It's good :)
 
@technastic_tc Good to know! :)
 
BTW.. I'm unable to understand the last sentence in the answer.. "helping me since... member here!". If you can explain it to me in an easy to understand manner, it would be great!
I wish suggested edits existed in meta :|
 
6:23 PM
I was afraid that this sentence would be a bit confusing with so many commas. I simplified it.
@technastic_tc Yeah, it would be good.
 
@BeastOfCaerbannog cool!
Also in the second last para.. I guess there are many commas. I guess we can use a full stop before "so for the last couple of years".
and rather than "I try to", I guess it should be "I tried to".
 
@technastic_tc You're correct. Fixed that.
@technastic_tc But I still try!
 
@BeastOfCaerbannog I guess "since" will be a better word then..
 
@technastic_tc I think "for" is OK: learningenglish.voanews.com/a/…!
 
@BeastOfCaerbannog Thanks! I need to improve my English..
 
6:36 PM
@technastic_tc Don't worry! Me too!
 
Thanks for responding to all my queries and editing the answer. And once again, sorry for nagging.
@BeastOfCaerbannog :)
Any suggestions if my image size is more than 2 MiB and I cannot compress it (for uploading it in an SE site)?
 
@technastic_tc No problem at all! Just keep in mind what terdon said above and the conversation we had a while back.
 
@BeastOfCaerbannog the conversation which we had regarding me informing OPs to correct typos in comments?
 
@technastic_tc Yeah.
 
Ok. Will do.
 
6:41 PM
@technastic_tc Use imagemagick to reduce its quality?
 
@BeastOfCaerbannog It's a GIF file and I tried in some other websites but I couldn't get the file sizw below 2 MiB..
I'll try the website which you've shared..
 
@technastic_tc Imagemagick is not a website. It's command line tool.
 
oh..
I don't think that's for windows..
:(
 
@technastic_tc It is if you have WSL
 
@BeastOfCaerbannog I don't have and can't enable it :(
 
6:49 PM
You can actually have imagemagick on windows: imagemagick.org/script/download.php#windows
But don't you have a Linux machine, @technastic_tc?
 
@technastic_tc I found this site and it seems to work great! compress-or-die.com
It has a nice name too!
 
@Zanna :)
@terdon That's broken as of now..
And I didn't fix it yet.
@terdon ok..
@BeastOfCaerbannog Thanks! It worked :)
@BeastOfCaerbannog haha..

Q: Can I merge my LaunchPad login to this account?

wyphanI've seen this question multiple times, but they're all dated, so I don't feel appropriate to resurrect any of those ancient threads. Can a mod help me merge my StackExchange account (which is linked to Google and GitHub) with my Launchpad account ([REDACTED]) ? Thanks a lot!
