hahaha I had to go to maximum zoom to be able to read that
 
@AlexA. Eat more carrots.
 
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
 
What do you think I am, a rabbit? No, I'm a bird.
 
9:02 PM
^ there
 
(╯ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)╯︵ ┻━┻
 
I don't really have a good idea for an image.
 
@PhiNotPi I first read it as "Free Monkeys". :p
 
hahaha
 
9:06 PM
+500 for that
 
^ another one
 
@Dennis ^
 
What is it with you guys and your pixelation fetish? :P
 
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
At this point it just needs to match the others
 
It is time for this one to be posted again:
 
9:07 PM
Hello!
@PhiNotPi +560?
 
Anyone here good with golfing python?
 
We're all pretty good at golfing in general.
 
@AlexA. Sure, we wouldn't want one of them to accidentally look like an image from the 21st century. :P (Sorry, @Phi.)
 
ಠ_ಠ
 
I guess I probably could have figured that out
 
9:09 PM
 
I'm okay at Python
 
I'm really struggling on how to multiply all the entries of a list, right now reduce(lambda a,b:round(a*b,6),l) is the best I can do, but it just feels like I should be able to do better
 
@PhiNotPi You must be using some software, right? OR do you just like using uneven 0s?
 
@PhiNotPi This is my favorite so far. The fact that a +600 bounty isn't even a thing makes this all the more amazing IMO.
2
 
@grc and @xnor are better
 
9:10 PM
@wnnmaw You can use import itertools or something, but it'd be longer.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Does MS Paint count as software?
 
I already have itertools imported, what would you use?
 
@AlexA. I gave a bounty of 600 once.
It was divided into 200 and 400.
 
@PhiNotPi Only kind of
 
@wnnmaw .Oops. Yeah, I'm not your python person :P
 
9:10 PM
@ThomasKwa Then that doesn't count :P
 
@wnnmaw I think the trick is reduce(int.__mul__,l)
No wait, you want it over floats
 
Stack Over Floats
4
 
@ThomasKwa, yeah definitely need floats
 
9:13 PM
@Dennis Farewell, little buddy.
 
reduce(float.__mul__,L,1.) works but seems a bit tacky
 
@PhiNotPi hahahaha
 
@PhiNotPi 420 bounty it
 
@Dennis Whatever happens, just know that he loves you.
 
@Dennis Just noticed that the +500 is transparent, not white.
 
9:16 PM
Yeah, it wouldn't have actually worked as an icon.
 
It wouldn't? Making it transparent was the hardest part...
 
f=lambda l,a=1:a and f(l[1:],a*l[0])or l is longer
Wait no
I can't recurse
 
@Dennis *{background:blue}
 
f=lambda l,a=1:l and f(l[1:],a*l[0])or a
I started a bounty a few minutes ago, and it hasn't been advertised here.
 
Is there a bounty bot now?
 
9:20 PM
Whats the fuss about bounties?
 
1 hour ago, by Thomas Kwa
Can there be a "New Bounties" chatbot?

@ThomasKwa

Dennis has made a change to the feeds posted into this room
@wnnmaw ^
 
@ThomasKwa Well, bots are always slow...
Except when they aren't.
 
9:25 PM
Where's the snippet that finds the most popular languages on PPCG?
 
@ThomasKwa You mean CJam?

Q: High-rep hammers hamper high-rep humans

Digital TraumaSorry about the silly title - it just sort of happened that way and then I couldn't resist the alliteration. Tag badges are awarded when you earn at least 1000 total score for at least 200 non-community wiki answers with a specific tag. A "privilege" gained due to this is the ability to use a...

 
@flawr Pyth, more like.
 
Any mods around? I'm wondering what this message means. It's from when I was fairly new to SO.
 
But that's probably not the most popular language.

Q: What are my code golf languages?

w0lfI was curious to find out the answer count for each of the languages I golf in. Using the Stack Exchange Data Explorer, I just wrote a query to answer just that and thought other people might find it interesting. Here are my languages. Query with your user id to find out yours. While we're at ...

 
@Rainbolt There's literally a "primarily opinion based" flag option. Don't use an "other" flag for that.
 
@Rainbolt Looks to me like the decliner gave custom feedback, and I would guess they wanted you to use one of the close reasons already available.
 
The former goes through the close queue; the latter can only be handled by moderators.
 
@Doorknob So you're saying I probably typed out "Primarily opinion-based"?
 
I'm thinking now though that Rainbolt probably didn't have enough rep to cast a close vote?
 
9:36 PM
I don't, and never have. That's why I am confused
 
@Rainbolt I'm saying you did. If you used the flag reason, it would be in all lowercase without a dash or period.
 
@Rainbolt Oh yeah, I'll bet that's what happened.
 
Can someone code up a query to find the most frequently used languages in 2015? I don't know the language.
 
@Doorknob Ah, good to know. I couldn't remember back that far.
 
I'm planning to give 50 points to the best overall code in each of a few languages last year.
 
9:36 PM
I can't believe I've never looked at my declined flags on SO before.
 
@ThomasKwa Hasn't this been done? A search of chat might be useful. Was it @Doorknob that did the stats on that?
 
Yes, but the data dump hasn't been updated since August last I checked
checks again
 
@El'endiaStarman For 2015 answers?
 
Ooooh! New data dump on January 1! downloads
 
All time, probably.
Ooooh!
Finally Minkolang will be on the list! :P
 
9:38 PM
Is there any way to filter by date, to count only the 2015 answers?
 
Of course; I'll just modify my script
 
@El'endiaStarman And Jolf, and Vitsy, and any other language lovingly used by their maker. :P
 
@PhiNotPi can the avatar be a dynamic URL that reads the total available bounty rep from the SE API :P
 
This one only looks at the latest 50 code golf challenges: codegolf.stackexchange.com/q/61955/18487
 
@Rainbolt The language-name-detecting criteria on that are horrible and don't work, though.
 
9:40 PM
@MartinBüttner I though all avatars had to be uploaded to SE, in which case they would be imgur URLs.
 
The one in your profile is imgur. The ones here in chat next to each message are gravatar.

@Doorknob is that all of them?
original output and changed output?
 
9:46 PM
@ThomasKwa Probably comes from "## Task 5" or such. You can ignore that one.
@Rainbolt That's ><>. Still too lazy to fix HTML entities. :P
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ No idea where those come from
 
I'll put up 100 for Python, and 50 for each of the other top 10.
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Beefing up the junk-filtering-out algorithm gets rid of those. (It used to be "filter out anything that appears only on one question"; now it's "one or two questions")
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ That's the top ~50
 
@Doorknob Ohh
Where's the code?
 
@Doorknob Ach, PowerShell didn't crack the top 20 ... :-/
 
9:47 PM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Somewhere on my Github Gist profile, maybe
I'll upload the updated version in a second
 
:D
I'm want to run it with everything.
Is that possible?
 
Huh?
 
None of my esolangs made the list. :(
 
I want to see all the languages used
@PhiNotPi Don't feel too bad. None of mine did either :P
 
@PhiNotPi That reminds me... the oculus rift pre-orders opened up today
 
9:51 PM
@Doorknob I'm a bit surprised that I posted almost as many Minkolang answers in ~3 months as there were Befunge answers over the whole year.
 
@El'endiaStarman I'm not XD I saw Minkolang all over the place :D
 
@PhiNotPi 121 seems a bit unlikely for Retina
 
@Rainbolt Cool! Lemme check my empty pockets for the money!
 
I got google cardboard for christmas.

@MartinBüttner 186 answers containing "Retina.". Doesn't seem too unlikely.

Q: Output the next kana

Sp3000Japanese kana characters correspond to a single sound in the Japanese language. With the exception of ん (n), every other kana consists of a consonant part and a vowel part. There is a natural ordering to Japanese kana, a sort of "alphabetical order", which is typically arranged in a 10 by 5 table...

@Doorknob Gah-dang, PowerShell #21 in that list, too
Apparently, I need to step it up
Wait ... what's task?
 
Jolf is #111. That is unnacceptable.
 
where is Seriously?

Seriously, where is it?
line 54
 
what number?
 
Ninja'd. Seriously?!

Seriously #54
@Mego be proud!
 
10:03 PM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Seriously ninja'd right there.
 
@TanMath Well, duh.
@PhiNotPi Seriously? Are we seriously seriously-ing seriously?
Okay, jelly beats Jolf?
That's it.
I'm hacking SE :P
 
I would learn jolf if you had better docs.
Really, I tried too.
 
@RikerW oh sh*t sorry
Once I update the docs, I'll be happy.
Jolf is really my utility tool.
I use it all the time whilst programming as a computational device.
 
Okay.
I will await you...
 
For example, ~TpZ"Phi" gives you the hexadecimal characode of the greek letter Phi.
I'll update docs if someone asks me how to do x in Jolf :P
 
10:08 PM
How to do x in Jolf?? hlp plz
 
lol
 
@ETHproductions XD
'x
 
@quintopia It isn't correct. I've tested it, and it gives the wrong result for 17.

10:10 PM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Ooh, Japt is #49 :D
 
He asked a stupid question and you actually answered him.
 
@RikerW Well, he did set himself up for it...
 
True...
 
10:10 PM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ You could just answer more questions in Jolf. :P
 
@ETHproductions shakes your hand, goes to cry in a corner.

@Dennis It's too late... MY LEIF EES OVER
 
what's that?
 
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ At least it beats Seriously.
 
10:11 PM
Your leaf est ofer?
 
@ETHproductions I don't think it does.
 
It doesn't.
 
Yeah, it doesn't.
 
:(
 
10:11 PM

@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ And it doesn't even take my latest Jelly answer into account.
 
@Dennis ಠ_ಠ
Jolf stops working FML
 
¯\_(:D)_/¯
 
@Dennis Don't be mean, but the truth does hurt...
 
@Dennis Your face died.

10:13 PM
@CᴏɴᴏʀO'Bʀɪᴇɴ Are you talking about this?
 
@ETHproductions Oh, I thought you were talking about Jolf
Yeah, gj on beating seriously XD
 
Japt beats Seriously? How?
how???
 
49 to 54.
 
Seriously was made later.
 
oh
 
10:14 PM
I think 80% of all Japt answers are mine xD
 
Hey, @Zizouz212 made the hat showcase. :P
 
@Dennis I'm rolling in the deep!
 
then 17% goes to @nicael, and the other 3% to @ՊՓԼՃՐՊՃՈԲՍԼ

Let's hope so!
 
It won't be -1 bytes for sure ;)

no opinion? if you guys do not want to upvote it, just tell me your opinion!
 
dude calm down

Listen, you already asked for the entire room's opinion, and I haven't even had time to finish reading the post.
 
stop smashing cakes in our faces

really?
 
No, we're all lying and you should spam requests for opinions.

@flawr EAT THEM! ;)
@Rainbolt ok, i don't need sarcasm here...
 
One major problem I see is that you have "Once this post reaches three upvotes, it will be posted onto the main site", and the post is at three upvotes but has not been posted on main. That basically makes you a liar.
 
10:51 PM
^ The score is +3|-1.
 
Also a true statement
 
oh...
 
@Rainbolt that's not nice :(
 
Thanks!!! you know who you are! please reveal yourself...:)
 
10:53 PM
Rainbolt is lovely to people when they aren't being pushy
 
@TanMath there has been quite a lot of feedback - I'd focus on resolving that rather than measuring an exact number of votes or amount of time
 
@trichoplax what feedback?
should I delete my main post now?
the testcases were added
 
@TanMath The 7 comments on your sandbox post
If you're happy that all of them have been addressed and there are no more coming in, then you're ready to post
It might be worth waiting to see if any further feedback follows the 3 downvotes though
