Morning working people
 
6:05 AM
Good morning to you. How is moderatorship settling in now?
 
7:04 AM
@Snow it's good overall. Had some tension last week with a high rep user that we had to ban because they were on a series of poor reviews, and they got very offended. Defusing wasn't easy, but I think we succeeded in hearing both parts. As for the rest, well... most of the time there's not much to do, as IPS tends to let a lot of the mod stuff to the community. And since my actions are now binding, I'm almost doing less than before... :p
 
Yeah. A lot of it is just doing what you do already and handling flags. Dealing with users can be challenging sometimes, especially when you want them to do more of what they're good at.
 
7:47 AM
@Snow yup ... ain't easy being cheesy
 
8:23 AM
morning all
 
8:40 AM
@motosubatsu morning alone

12:04 PM
I fell in love with a Ferrari 488 :(
 
@Twyxz Maybe one day the bigotry will end and they will let you get married
 
I know, 488 SVR Spyder ;(
 
12:19 PM
@Twyxz is th
is that the bespoke one that's an utterly insane amount of money?
 
It is
But I saw one on the road
and I cried a little bit
 
12:34 PM
the SVRs look good...but the price really is in the absurd category

Q: Relevant comment deleted - why?

RolandUnder this question I reposted (slightly modified) content from this comment after it had been moved to chat. I did so because I think it is important to give future readers a visible counter-statement (backed up by references) to answers giving unfounded legal opinions like "owner's risk". My ...

 
but have you seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen it in person
 
12:58 PM
@Twyxz no.. I don't disagree that it's a great looking car (although the seats are hideous) but it's £300k IIRC - for a 488 with a body kit
 
They also black out the badge remember that part @motosubatsu
 
@Twyxz I'LL TAKE TWO!!!
 
@motosubatsu I knew that would get you!
Is it not faster than the 488 slightly
It must be, it's blacked out.
and comes with a bigger spoiler
 
@Twyxz I think you can get the SVR body kit without any performance upgrades but the original Custom Bespoke car was tuned somewhat - high 700s IIRC
 
1:14 PM
The bodykit alone is $40,000
You might aswell get the tuned upgrades
 
although if a performance 488 is what you're after it's hard to look beyond the Pista edition
 
250k too
Yeah I think the R8 is realistic... a 488 is eh a little outta budget
 
yeah even early 488s are still 170k+
 
I've seen a lotta i8's recently too, not as impressive but the butterfly doors are kinda cool
50k for a 2016 is decent :P
Are there issues with them or something? How do they depreciate so much within 2-3 years? The battery?
 
1:39 PM
I'd imagine the battery is the reason for the depreciation - not sure how much that translates into real world problems though
a mate of mine drives one but we haven't caught up in a spell
 
1:50 PM
Surely it can't be that much of a problem
 
@Twyxz it's probably more of a perception issue than a real one - IIRC BMW warranty the batteries for 8 years
 
Why do you have so much in your memory about things that no person should know ahhahaha @motosubatsu
 
@Twyxz <shrug /> probably an autistic thing - some types of info just stick in my head
if you ever need a Windows 95 product key I'm your man
 
@motosubatsu you too?
I didn't know you were on the spectrum as well
Unless that's a joke?
 
It's the truth @avazula
 
2:04 PM
@avazula not a joke no.. Aspie all the way
 
wonders why they didn't join the Neurodiversity Area51 proposal
:p
 
I've never been diagnosed but I'm pretty certain I have some form of autism
 
@Twyxz nah, you're just dumb :p
 
I can remember numbers that have no significance to me but have meaning to others
:(
 
(joke)
(flowers and respect on you)
 
2:06 PM
@avazula without wanting to come across as cryptic I didn't feel I'd be particularly welcome there if it started
 
@motosubatsu Oh? Now you make me curious
 
Plus when trading I can remember every key level on charts that I've looked at throughout the day which comes in handy :P
 
@avazula there was a user who was pretty active on the proposal that has..issues with me
not a big thing really - just decided I'd rather not put myself in the situation
 
Whats with the starred posts these days
there aren't any new ones
 
we've all been too boring :P
 
2:15 PM
Speak for yourself
 
@motosubatsu oh no :/ that's bad when such things happen
I have that kind of issues sometimes ... I don't count the number of DVes I got since I became a mod BTW hahaha
 
@avazula yeah I think sometimes people can see the diamond and get a bit carried away with "sticking it to the man" or whatever
 
true
 
everyone with a diamond is the enemy!
 
@Twyxz I'll tell @Snow you said that :P
 
2:28 PM
I'd star it so he could see!
but I can't, your word will have to do

Pet Peeve of today: When someone posting a Q writes "A good answer should include X, Y, and..."
If you are posting here is because you don't know the answer! You can't tell users how to answer and what to include in their post... most likely OP asking has no clue what to do and the answers may well be "don't foo the bar"... when OP is demanding "a good answer should say how to foo the bar"...
