Still waiting for somebody to fix the thing described in my Meta SE post. :(
Q: Message for upvotes is misleading

RikerWI realized the other day on SciFi & Fantasy SE that the upvote message is misleading. I had joined and asked a question, this one if you were wondering, and tried to upvote an answer. It gave me a message saying that my upvotes would not be shown until I had 15 rep. Okay, I understand ...

Thank you kind upvoter.
@quartata you there?
Ooh, cool.
Really, really nice.
But maybe red glow for the down vote?
I didn't know what to make the active boats, so I did the green accent.
@RikerW Nice!
12:10 AM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Good idea.
What photo editor do you use?
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ the ones on the right hurt my eyes
Turn down the glow?
@undergroundmonorail Really?
they're trying to focus but they can't
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ this would probably work
12:11 AM
@undergroundmonorail That is because it is out of focus because of the glow.
I like it, but if it hurts your eyes we should turn it down.
@RikerW i understand why it just hurts haha
i think it looks pretty good it just also causes physical pain
@undergroundmonorail lol, same way with my migraines
ignore the little arrows peaking out from behind the boats:
that's good
12:13 AM
Oh, sorry.
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Seems dece.
Hmm... what should the check mark be?
I suppose if you want to keep with the Game of Life theme it could be a glider at a certain angle
12:19 AM
Post it on the thing
Q: Graduation Design Ideas

Calvin's HobbiesProgramming Puzzles & Code Golf will someday graduate out of public beta, and it will get a new site design. Stack Exchange employees generally do all the design work and make the design decisions, but that doesn't mean we can't nudge them in the right direction when the time comes. This meta po...

Also did you ever figure out what's up with the header
@quartata are you ignoring me?
I was at lunch
then why haven't you responded when you were in the room?
Because he just got in.
12:21 AM
Because I don't know what the issue with your Pyth thing is
ok... bye!
@quartata I think @PhiNotPi solved it
Bye @TanMath
it was a joke @CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ
I am not actually going to leave!
12:22 AM
Really! Never would have guessed. /s
Gone yet?
piss I killed the sprite sheet
Oh, because it's too large
lol. But i feel your pain bruther
O_O skewing it back to the regular size kills the image
let's try that again
Q: Conjugate in the Spanish imperfect / Conjugue en el imperfecto de indicativo

DoorknobGiven an input of a Spanish verb in its infinitive form, output the verb conjugated in all 6 forms of the indicative imperfect. To conjugate an infinitive in the imperfect, remove the infinitive ending (-ar, -er, -ir, and sometimes -ír) and add the imperfect endings listed below. There are three...

12:31 AM
Thank you, @NewMainPosts.
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ ????
Does anyone find my thank you's to be weird?
The Spritesheet died
@RikerW yes
12:32 AM
Shut up then.
@NewMainPosts Just for a moment, I wondered if a new user had posted a wildly off-topic question. Then I saw the avatar...
> than
@NewMainPosts gracias a @NewMainPosts para tu post
12:33 AM
@TanMath too green.
@TanMath I think you have a problem with tabs
@Doorknob don't look!
It's sorta workign o_O
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ @Doᴡɴɢᴏᴀᴛ Phi's been doing stuff too. I think having one core userscript posted on the meta question seems like a good idea, if everyone can agree on what goes in it.
12:34 AM
@Doorknob Mine would be like that too if I didn't have two monitors. :P
@Doorknob One time I had over 50 tabs on 2 browsers...
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ The boats look like faces :P
@RikerW Not as weird as the apostrophe in "you's" :P
@Calvin'sHobbies Phi's is vastly different from the one I've been working on o_o
@trichoplax I know, but I don't care. :P
12:35 AM
@NewMainPosts Les verbes de espagnol? Pourquoi pas les verbes de français?
ok, now I am really going to go...bye!
I still have no idea why you're all making userscripts. :P
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ !
I cannot take this background-image crap
12:35 AM
@Doorknob Cause fun. :P
Hmm... the upvote button looks off-center
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ que es 1 11 54?
@quartata And the badges are gone
@TanMath Je parle francais, merci beacoup
12:35 AM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Alright :)
I think they're different submissions
@TanMath Badges
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Yo hablo espanol..Yo no hablo francés
@TanMath What a shame
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Also I don't think the sarcasm of "very much" is idiomatic in French :P I wouldn't know though
12:36 AM
.i ma lo ro do cu jimpe la .jbobau. .i .u'i
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ You can fix the light blue bit on the sides of the title bar with this
.container {
    box-shadow: none;

@NewMainPosts Les verbes de espagnol? Pourquoi pas les verbes de français?
@Doorknob you and your lojban
> lojiban
or whatever that thing is
bajeepers I got four pings in the space I went to edit a line of code
12:36 AM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ btw I gathered all site's sprites here. Looks like the vote buttons are only different colors depending on if they're active
What is it @Doorknob?
@Calvin'sHobbies I thought that, too. Trying to style the thing green (as was with the theme) did not look good on a downvote button. :P
the language i mean
It's fixable
.i doi @RikerW do na'e jimpe ma
12:37 AM
is it lojban?
There's no such thing as "lojiban" :P
I typo'd
.i mi co'a citka .i co'o ro do
(I'm gonna eat now, bye :P)
FUN FACT: 1 in 4 scots believe in the loch ness monster
12:40 AM
@Doorknob Prenez votre langue bizarre avec vous.
You a scot?
Hell no
I'm Irish
Obviously irish
> O'Brien
I know that. it was sarcasm. :P
12:42 AM
Sarcasm doesn't carry well over the interwebs. Use </sarcasm> or </sarc>.
> You a scot? /s
You just matched another whitespace character :P
I know regexes and sarcasm.
I should put that in my profile description. :P
#4eac68 a good color for active cells in the up/down boat?
YES!!! I love teal and its descendants. :P
That is close enough. :P
12:46 AM
okay, that's 1
@quartata ^^^^
Lets ping @quartata
Whee!!! @quartata
Stopping now @quartata
Sorry. :P
12:47 AM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Try the same color as the meta box first just to see what it looks like
I think it'll need to be something brighter
than #4eac68!?
Yeah sure
I'd like to see them both
Meanwhile I'll pick a third option
Nah too dark
It needs to be something flashy
12:50 AM
maybe <blink><marquee>rgb(36,171,126)</blink></marquee>?
awsum thx
Which color is this?
I think this is the meta box color, right?
12:51 AM
No, closer to #4eac68 i think.
Maybe though.
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ answer us!
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ I know it looks a bit like Code Review, but what do you think?
Too code review
I have an idea
Grayscale version of one of these:
A: Images with all colors

fejesjocoC# I put a random pixel in the middle, and then start putting random pixels in a neighborhood that most resembles them. Two modes are supported: with minimum selection, only one neighboring pixel is considered at a time; with average selection, all (1..8) are averaged. Minimum selection is somew...

12:52 AM
The thing is that code review looks good
The thing is that code review is our nemesis
Yes, but they are evil!!
12:53 AM
Because they graduated first.
Plus they have no appreciation for short code. :P
Short version of the story: There was a contest between PPCG and CR (two sites that were in beta for notoriously long times) to see who would graduate first. CR won. We're still pissed.
12:54 AM
@JAtkin Yeah, too code reviewy :P Maybe if they were tiled hexagons or triangles?
So we raided them. mwuhahahaha
I like hexagons.
^^^ hexagons and ^
@JAtkin I also put a green tint on the background to make it a bit different. I'm too lazy to redesign as hexagons
@MartinBüttner would enjoy hexagons
12:55 AM
fixing spacing
@Calvin'sHobbies I would too.
And yes, I'm using this chat/imgur as hosting
@quartata I know Blender!
^ :D
^^ ish
12:56 AM
I would LOVE a hexagon green tinted bg image...
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Make it glowier. I liked the glow.
Maybe hexagons for the stars?
Yes. ^
12:56 AM
That was the meta one, with a = 1
Maybe too flamboyant.
That's.... yeah
I want green glow. I want green glow. I want green glow. I want green glow.
I see a small line artifact one the upvote, upper left.
12:57 AM
Everyone's a purist
@quartata Is that from the "every RGB color challenge?"
If you can do it, do it right!! ;)
12:58 AM
They don't have to be grayscaled, I'm just seeing what they look like.
Some kind of palette swap might be interesting.
@Doᴡɴɢᴏᴀᴛ We could make a challenge out of it. People get unlazy when they start competing ;)
^ attempt of hexagon star buttons
12:58 AM
The first one was a coral version the second one was unsorted
@El'endiaStarman Cool!
Can you make us a little jigsaw piece?
@Doᴡɴɢᴏᴀᴛ I like!
Grayscale this and tile it left to right.
@quartata Example to aim for?
Yeah sure one second.
1:01 AM
Thanks @El'endiaStarman.
I think they should look like the Jiggies from Banjo-Kazooie:
Obviously not that texture
I just mean the shape
It's a fairly iconic jigsaw piece shape
@JAtkin ?
@quartata I see Mickey...
Elendia was asking for a reference.
@Calvin'sHobbies Same. :P
So that he would know what kind of shape we wanted.
1:03 AM
where are the beta site sprites? I can't seem to find them...
I'm starting to think we should maybe have a separate room for this.
They don't have any ^^
@quartata perhaps
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ which color is this?
I still liked the ambient glow for the vote buttons.
@RikerW's OD something
1:04 AM
@quartata I can do that
I'm thinking it's a little too... minty
@Calvin'sHobbies mkay
@RikerW Ditio
I was using that earlier
@QUART ^^^^^^
Why are we coming up with ideas for a graduation design? Have I missed something, or have we decided to rise en masse against the Stack Overflow bourgeoisie and demand our graduation?

 PPCG Graduation Design Discussion

PPCG Graduation Design Discussion
@Ampora Pretty much.
Except more passive-aggressive
1:12 AM
We aren't just coming up with ideas, we are actually implementing them
Instead of graduating we must dethrone Jeff Atwood and replace him with Jon Skeet.
It is our way of showing SE that we don't need no stinking graduation
At least not for another 10 months
1:20 AM
hacker ???s
hacker golf, of course
P3G. Golfing here!
Programming Puzzles and Perl Golf. Bowling here!
1:34 AM
O @AlexA., master judge of phallicness: n/10 how phallic is my new profile picture?
(that would look really weird out of context)
@Doorknob Oh, look, it's Doorknob.
Why the long nose? I emphasized knob because it actually looks like a knob now...
Mmhmm, sure... :P
1:38 AM
Doorknob != Door"knob"
Door"knob" == Doorwood
Come discuss mods:

 PPCG Graduation Design Discussion

We are here to discuss the design for PPCG when it graduates. ...
Why would you discuss us in the graduation design room?
Are we discussing the date? Because I heard something about November 1.
Oct 22 '15 at 14:14, by Calvin's Hobbies
@Geobits November 17th. Mark your calendars.
Why is quartatatots' avatar the proposed vote button?
1:43 AM
It's not
It's not...
Proposed is boat, that is glider
Dennis didn't say "quartata." You didn't know that we have a user called "quartatatots?"
@Doorknob No we don't.
Do the people in charge of designing stuff know what we're doing, and if so, have they said anything? This is very interesting to observe and contribute to
@SuperJedi224 Uhhh... brb making account
@Ampora Why would the Stack Overflow mods care about this?
1:45 AM
The people in charge of designing stuff
I'm pretty sure the Stack Overflow moderators don't do designing
@Ampora I don't think so. I'm not sure how to contact them. Chris is not even pingable anymore
1:46 AM
SE staff patrol per-site metas.
I must say, everything that has been proposed so far for the new design looks a lot better than what they did to poor Cryptography.
@Doorknob Wh star so sudly?
I had the same question
TBH, I don't really see anything glaringly bad with the crypto.se design. The favicon isn't that good, but most of it seems pretty okay.
1:56 AM
Well, and the logo's a bit odd, but...
And the... dirt on the background. And the inconsistent use of fonts. And the horrendous badge icons...
Hmm, I always thought the bg was random martix like characters, not that bad logo
2:16 AM
@Doorknob er excuse me
what you didn't see anything
I see everything
2:31 AM
This is a dupe of something but I can't remember
Can you help me out here?
2:56 AM
Q: Distinguish close votes by reason

Mark ElliotEven though a question may be closed by receiving 5 close votes, the votes do not necessarily need to agree. I think this is a good behavior, but recently I voted to close a question for being an exact duplicate (which it was) and found the question was closed as "not a real question". This is ...

I already found it lmao
Just waiting for a mod to notice my flag pls
MSE mods don't exist
> marked as helpful
> not closed
wtf mse
2:58 AM
That's because I close voted it as the same thing
I can't see close votes which makes me feel strange
I'm suffering from "phantom dupehammer" syndrome here
I keep reaching to my non-existent pack of close votes
