@Unionhawk maybe it was a bug and it was fixed in the patch that changed bounties
 
i really don't get it
 
@No.7892142 Neil Stephenson wrote a novel about it.

It's a bit of a beast

Q: CounterStrike: GO - Xbox 360 controller not moving

TheAceI enabled the controller in the settings but I am unable to move in-game using the control sticks.

 
@fredley I have that book on my table right now. It really is quite intimidating, and I'm not sure if I want to start on it
 
how is this almost closed
 
12:10 PM
@TheAce Lack of information, I guess.
 
@5pike It's not a complex problrm
 
@PrivatePansy It's good, just very long
 
@TheAce But it lacks info, like: Is it an official controller, does the controller work with other games, has he installed the right drivers, what has he tried etc...
 
@TheAce Man, that comment on the answer is a bit dickish.
 
@fredley I got it at a book sale because a) I happen to know Stephenson, and b) since all books were going for a flat price, this was quite literally the most book per dollar I could buy
 
12:14 PM
@TheAce Keyboard + mouse >>>>>>>>>>> controller, for FPS's.
 
Which was probably a bad idea in retrospect.
 
So wanting to make a controller work is going backwards.
 
some people like using controller.
it's a matter of preference
 
@Frank That's beside the point though. The option is there, so using a controller is fine.
 
@No.7892142 I know it is but, I'm sick of the "just get good and use a mouse" attitude
 
12:15 PM
@No.7892142 No, that's the whole point.
 
@TheAce welcome to PC gaming
 
@Frank Sure whatever.
@TheAce Yeah, but the guy tried to answer your question anyway.
 
You're hamstringing yourself and giving yourself a massive disadvantage.
 
@PrivatePansy Haha
 
cc @Sterno
 
12:17 PM
@No.7892142 he didn't have to to act like he was putting himself out by telling me how to use a controller
 
@Frank "hi how do i drive stick" "OH MY GOD YOU FUCKING IDIOT DON'T YOU KNOW AUTOMATIC IS SUPERIOR IN ANY WAY"
 
@No.7892142 Great, well done completely missing the point and being a dick in the process.
 
@TheAce I don't see anything wrong with his answer, to be honest.
 
@Frank not when I have a brain problem where it's actually harder to use a mouse. my muscles are jacked up basically
 
He voiced his opinion that using a controller for such games is silly and recommended not doing it, then went ahead and tried to solve your issue anyway, if you insist in controller usage.
 
12:19 PM
@TheAce See, now that is a fantastic reason to be trying to use a mouse controller.
 
@Frank see my point now? I'm not gonna be some pro CS:GO player I just wanna enjoy the game
 
Voters, please remember to leave a comment when voting to close as unclear if you believe there is important information the question is lacking. — Wipqozn 52 secs ago
 
@Wipqozn I'll remember that.
 
@5pike See that you do, OR THERE'LL BE A PAIN TRAIN INCOMING
 
@TheAce There's nothing wrong with using a controller. I never said there was. There's just usually no reason to ever do so on PC, not for FPS's, due to the very clear advantages keyboard and mouse give you. So people can't fathom why you'd want to handicap yourself.
 
12:22 PM
6 mins ago, by Frank
You're hamstringing yourself and giving yourself a massive disadvantage.
You definitely did say there's something wrong with using a controller.
Man, I'd think @Frank was a mod with all these corrupt lies he's tossing around!

@Frank I get that they don't why "I'd want to" cause they don't know my situation but none of that is a reason to close that question
 
@Wipqozn Well done, focusing on only a single part of my statement. :P
@TheAce That context is actually pretty important.
 
@Frank Thanks
 
@TheAce I doubt (hope) that people VtC just because it's about using a controller.
 
12:25 PM
@Frank hmm maybe I'm hoping to hard for an ideal world
 
@TheAce A world is ideal. And then people get involved.
 
@5pike i really think it is tho
@Frank damn that was deep
 
@Frank IT's really, really not.
It doesn't matter why he wants to use a controller over KB+M when answering is question.
 
@Wipqozn It's not needed in the question, but it would help for those confused as to why someone's even trying to do so.
 
I find myself agreeing with @Wipqozn and it's irritating!
 
12:27 PM
@Frank Sure, but that doesn't really matter. Definitely doesn't make it unclear.
 
@Wipqozn I can easily see where those unclear votes came from.
 
@Frank I could see why, too, but lack of context for "why a controller" isn't one of them.
 
Well, those unclear voters are wrong, if they VtC just because it's about a controller.
 
@Frank So you're saying I should edit the question and be like"YO my hands/arms are all screwed up so i can't use KB+M"?
 
@5pike Yeah. If you're going to VTC for using a controller in an FPS, then you should be using a custom close reason.
 
12:29 PM
We should be assuming good faith on the part of the close voters. All we're doing is generating bad blood if we don't.
@TheAce If you want to, sure.
 
@TheAce Nope, unnecessary information which doesn't belong into a question.
 
@Frank I think the problem is that you're giving the impression (unintentionally?) that the problem with his question, one of them at least, is he didn't say why he was using a controller.
 
You're one of them!
@Wipqozn Yeah, that was the implication.
 
@Frank I think his close vote was because there's too little information..
 
@Frank Different reason, mate
19 mins ago, by 5pike
@TheAce But it lacks info, like: Is it an official controller, does the controller work with other games, has he installed the right drivers, what has he tried etc...
 
12:31 PM
@TheAce You don't need to do that. You are under no obligation to share information like that with the people of this site.
 
And see, there's a good faith reason to use unclear.
 
@TheAce Did what that guy suggested work for you by the way?
 
All we're really doing here is going in circles about how other people used their unclear close votes.
 
Also, I'm going to assume the lack of commenting is due to people using the review queue.
Another reason I dislike that gosh darn queue (cc @GraceNote you monster)
 
@No.7892142 it should I haven't had a chance to try it yet
@Wipqozn exactly it shouldn't matter why I want to all that should matter is that I want to and I can't
 
12:33 PM
Well if it doesn't, just play TF2, play Pyro and W+M1 all the way. Doesn't need any Keyboard/Mouse skills!
 
Good morning Bridge-ians! Today I get to go back to my own house sometime!
 
@No.7892142 lol go to know
@AshleyNunn yay
brb gonna go try that now
 
I think I may have to get it now...
 
@TheAce I am so excited. Get to sleep in my own bed, and I will be the only human there so the TV wont be on and loud all the time!
 
@Rapitor I like where they are going with Hardline.
 
12:37 PM
I forgot, which day was today again?

Oh gods. IT was mentioned. What have you done @No.7892142?
 
@KevinvanderVelden I just like to see bridges burn.
 
@No.7892142 you evil evil man
 
well it worked

Q: Do I lose my attack in Clash of clans war?

archerraidIf I start a battle in a war, but click "end attack' before I attack, will this still count as one of my attacks in the war?

 
@Wipqozn That was weird drama
 
@Sterno It was, but I figured you'd enjoy it.
 
@Frank I don't know that we should ever need to know why someone wants to use a controller when they ask to get it working. The why is completely irrelevant to answering the question.
@Wipqozn Naturally
Upon reading those Pratchett quotes, I've come to realize I don't like his writing style. JUST LOOK AT THAT UNNECESSARY COMMA
 
1:11 PM
 
There can never be enough commas in a sentence, ever.
 
> There, can, never, be, enough, commas, in, a, sentence, ever.
 
It's like Lisp and brackets. More is always better.
 
T, h, a, n, ks.
 
1:14 PM
@Sterno Which reminds me! Have you played Cities: Skylines at all since buying it?
 
@Wipqozn I made a road. THen quit
 
Reminds me of my Prison Architect experience.
 
@fredley No.
 
1:17 PM
@KevinvanderVelden :)
 
@Sterno At no point have I said that it needs to be in the question.
 
@Sterno So..exactly what you said would happen
 
@fredley wait. fuck you.
 
Not What He Seems is really really amazing. It's completely different from almost every other episode of the show, and it's pretty much a mid-season finale
 
@PrivatePansy Just watched a clip of it from the end. My word.
I should get caught up on gravity falls.
I have trouble folloiwing it, because the release schedule is so inconsistent.
 
1:19 PM
@Wipqozn SPOILERS!
 
@Frank Sorry then, I misread what you said. I thought you were saying that's why some people voted as Unclear.
 
@Rapitor :)
 
@Wipqozn Mostly because I've been playing Ziggurat instead.
 
@Sterno That is what I said. And that's probably why they did.
 
@Sterno That's @GnomeSlice's fault, right?
 
1:19 PM
@Wipqozn Yeah it's hard to follow.
 
But, really, like downvotes, arguing why someone voted the way they did is just running around and circles, and less useful.
 
But also partly because the tutorial-intro-thing said "build a road", then I did, and it didn't move on to what to do next.
 
@Rapitor hence me "No."-ing him
 
@Frank I agree in the case of downvotes, but not close votes. Close votes have pretty specific reasons they should be used. To be fair, "Unclear what you're asking" is the most subjective of them
 
r/gravityfalls have the schedule on the sidebar. Just check it every one or two weeks for when the next episode will air
 
1:20 PM
But "I want to know why you need to know this" is not the same as "It's unclear what you're asking"
 
@Sterno They all have lots of subjectivity to them.
 
@Wipqozn Yes
@Frank True. But in some cases, people are clearly wrong.
 
But again, there should be a good faith assumption on the voters process.
That IS why they have those votes in the first place.
 
I can have good faith and still want to educate them why they made a poor decision.
 
Episode 10 before this, Northwest Mansion Mystery, is also pretty amazing
 
1:22 PM
That's what half our meta arguments are about
 
@Sterno I see less attempted education, and more lynch mob mentality, to be honest.
 
I'm not claiming anyone made a super downvote. I'm not actually claiming anything. I'm just against the idea that an asker should need to specify why they want to know for a question to avoid closure.
I'm pretty sure my position on that would be very difficult to argue with.
 
the whole Clarkson fiasco is pretty great though. even when off the air the orangutan is still entertaining.
 
@Sterno And I agree with that. But at the same time, we're attempting to assign motivations to people we don't know.
 
@Frank Maybe someone else was in the discussion. I'm not.
All I'm saying is that if that was the reason (which is not an idea I proposed), those people are doing it wrong
 
1:24 PM
User education is one of our biggest issues.
 
WHO THE BUTT IS JEREMY CLARKSON?
 
Especially for things like understanding what can and can't be copied for tag wikis.
 
@Wipqozn Anyway, it's the mid-season break. You can now safely binge watch all 11 S2 episodes, then wait restlessly for the next few month so that the cliffhanger can be resolved
 
@PrivatePansy Will do!
 
@rapitor Clarkson fiasco?
 
1:27 PM
@fredley I can't believe I clicked that.
 
@OrigamiRobot top gear
 
Oh, I scrolled up enough to find it.
 
@OrigamiRobot Which is a UK TV Show
 
@Wipqozn yes
 
The UK being that weird backwards place @fredley is from.
 
1:27 PM
@KevinvanderVelden WHICH TOP GEAR?
OLD TOP GEAR?
 
@OrigamiRobot The good one
 
DAVID TENNANT TOP GEAR?
 
Yes, same one
... right, now I'm unsure
 
OK, HE IS OLD TOP GEAR
 
@OrigamiRobot as in that david tennant was a guest on it: youtube.com/watch?v=GKmschnepXg
 
1:29 PM
@KevinvanderVelden NO
 
@Wipqozn I'm happy now I've got my weekly ration of @Wipqozn tears
 
David tennant wasn't on top gear: imdb.com/name/nm0855039
 
That's richard hammond
 
OLD TOP GEAR IS DRIVING
 
1:30 PM
I confuse them too
 
DAVID TENNANT TOP GEAR IS IN THE PASSENGER SEAT
 
I don't understand the Top Gear thing. Cars are boring. This is the only episode of it I ever liked.
3
 
left: clarkson. right: hammond. back: may
 
I dislike Top Gear, and I really dislike Jeremy Clarkson
 
@OrigamiRobot and called richard hammond
 
1:30 PM
@Sterno I love that one too
 
@Rapitor BACK: OTHER TOP GEAR
@KevinvanderVelden I PREFER TO CALL HIM DAVID TENNANT TOP GEAR
 
@fredley I bet.
 
@OrigamiRobot agreed, I confuse them too
 
I ALSO REMEMBER READING THAT HE RAN SOME RIDICULOUS DISTANCE IN THE RAIN WITH NO SHOES TO SEE HIS SON BEING BORN
BECAUSE HE WAS STUCK IN TRAFFIC
 
top gear david tennant or actual david tennant?
 
1:32 PM
TOP GEAR DAVID TENNANT
 
Richard hammond, right
 
Hamster
 
Also acceptable
His names are now: Hamster, David tennant top gear and richard hammond

Q: PVP.net patcher kernel has stopped working

BlueTigonI have been searching a lot for fixes I tried all of them, but still not working. I also tried all of the steps, updating my computer, downloading .net (already have it), re-downloading or replacing rads_user_kernel, running as administrator and running CCleaner. I know there are a lot of things...

 
Richard Hammond is nothing like David Tennant.
 
1:34 PM
Clarkson is still the best.
 
@Rapitor Clarkson is awful
His character is dated and awful
 
@fredley and yet I confuse the names sometimes
 
he's a racist and sexist idiot. what's not to love
 
@KevinvanderVelden The only acceptable mistake is Elijah Wood/Daniel Radcliffe
@Rapitor ...
 
Just got this email from a coworker:
> If you like Pi (and follow the m/dd/yy convention) you may be interested in knowing that in about 24 hours, the date and time will be:
3/14/15 9:26:53.589793238...
 
1:36 PM
@fredley fake harry potter and harry potter, jeah ok.
 
@Sterno WORST CONVENTION EVER
 
@Sterno also einsteins birthday, also my sisters birthday
 
Bbc is getting sued a million pounds for airing casual racism from clarkson
Surprised it took so long
 
@KevinvanderVelden I'll be sure to link that to every single US client that wants me to display date strings when they tell me to shut up and do it the way they want
 
I still think he's hilarious on the show but apparently he's really not very nice in person
 
1:37 PM
@Sterno Yes. Do that
@GnomeSlice he's also pretty racist on the show
 
@KevinvanderVelden 20130227 discouraged? for shame
 
@GnomeSlice BBC is also being sued by other networks for taking top gear off.
so it balances out
 
Yeah, I know, but him being inappropriate is like the main joke now
Wait what, taking top gear off?
 
Yeah they're not airing the rest of the season
 
yeah , the last 2 or 3 episodes in the series (read: season to non-UK) didn't/won't air.
 
1:39 PM
Because of the lawsuit???
PLS NO
 
but, the contract of the 3 is about to expire, so they could sign to a new network. and then BBC will basically lose their biggest money printer.
 
I THINK THE ONLY ACTUAL CLIP IVE SEEN OF THE SHOW WAS WHEN THEY RACES ONE OF THOSE TINY SHITTY CARS AGAINST PEOPLE CARRYING A TABLE
 
Watch the one where they drive trucks
Or the double decker car race
 
Casual racism is best racism?
 
1:41 PM
Africa special best episode.
 
NOTHING YOU GUYS ARE SAYING IS MAKING ME WANT TO WATCH ANY OF IT
 
Bolivia special was the best yeeee
I quite like the Vietnam one too though
 
I really don't get the thing people have with cars
 
@Sterno same way we have a thing with games
 
But I play games. FOr most people and cars, all they do is look at them
 
1:42 PM
If you like cars, watch top gear. if you don't like cars but like stupid people trying to achieve things, watch top gear.
 
Okay, okay
 
@Sterno Starred this without clicking the link. I'm assuming it's Friday.
 
I pretend I'm going to play games
@JasonBerkan There's definitely a non-zero chance of that.
 
The one where they made the snowbine harvester was pretty great
 
@Rapitor I'M SURE THERE ARE A GREAT MANY OTHER WAYS TO GET THAT FIX
 
1:44 PM
I don't really super like cars but I find the show very entertaining
 
CARS ARE BORING
 
@Sterno depends, a lot of people with nice cars generally like to drive. even race, you can't and probably shouldn't bring your day-to-day car to a track day.
 
I LIKE MY CAR BECAUSE IT'S THE THING THAT GETS ME PLACES
 
The one where they built motorhomes was hilarious
 
Is it an American thing where people fix up cars and add ridiculous shit to them, then drive them around town hoping everyone notices and thinks they're super cool, or is the entire world dumb?
 
1:44 PM
@Sterno world
 
Good to know.
 
@Sterno The entire world is dumb, but that doesn't really happen here
 
Clarkson made like a 3 story thing on top of a sedan and it fell over in the wind
 
@GnomeSlice fun times
I like the specials where they build stuff
 
Also look up top gear reliant robin
 
1:45 PM
@GnomeSlice LOL BANTER
 
American tuning leans more towards raw power, noise, and straight line speed. Drag racing.
 
@KevinvanderVelden YEA BUT YOU LIVE IN BIKE WORLD, NO?
 
I still remember when I visited Darby, our host was trying to explain to me some ridiculous lengths people go to in the UK to get certain license plate numbers, or something.
 
@Sterno I'd much prefer to have the car fixed up properly.
 
It was all pretty unclear to me.
 
1:45 PM
Lol banter?
 
One of you Brits should explain it
 
@GnomeSlice whieeee, "random" celebrity passerbys lifting the damn thing up every time
 
Haha yea
Peter Stringfellow
 
@GnomeSlice that one had me in tears first i saw it. so funny
 
Yeah it's amazing
I think my favourite is still the lorry driving special though
 
1:47 PM
my favorite special is africa, favorite episode is probably RV.
 
Africa = Bolivia right?
 
guys im doing something dangours
 
Like that's the one you're talking about?
Because that ones my fav
 
@GnomeSlice Bolivia = America
 
1:48 PM
?
 
It's in south america
 
Oh south anerica
 
Which is also america
 
no africa as in africa. the "point" was to find the source of the nile.
 
I the Africa one where they tried to find the source if the nile
Yeah
I haven't seen that one in a bit
Anyway I have to go back to work
 
1:56 PM
> Here are a few small tidbits of info about Cities: Skylines – day 1 we had 0% piracy. pretty cool. Day 2 16%. As usual our plan for pirates is to make a great game even better through free updates – making it more convenient to use Steam instead. It’s all about offering the superior service. That’s how we bring down piracy. By making the paid experience a superior one.
 
Florida Man Suspected of Using Private Plane to Draw Giant Radar Penis http://on.mash.to/1GMnzTV http://t.co/Ks45edra2M
 
@Sterno These people get it.
Also, they're wrong about 0% day 1 piracy.
 
> Jorjani also says that Steam Workshop is “the best “DRM” ever”, recognising the ridiculous amount of community creations already available for Skylines.
@Frank And probably the 16% too. 16% of what? And how do you even measure it. But whatever.

Q: Haste Soft-Cap for 2H Frost DK

empiricAfter reading several Guides I stumble upon this article where a cap of 3686 haste is mentioned. According to icy-veins Haste weights more than multistrike till BiS. But I wonder if there is a soft-cap after which crit or multistrike becomes more viable ? And how does this effect the Procs of ...

 
@Sterno But their main statement is what matters.
Workshop support is actually an insanely good thing. Providing a superior product for the people who pay for it is exactly what to do.
 
1:58 PM
@LessPop_MoreFizz Florida Man needs a theme song. (not Friday)
 
P sure Friday was Made In Florida.
