@AshleyNunn The only point of that question was for contest requirements. The fact that it has zero effort behind it, from an established user makes me downvote it.
It would take less than a minute of in-game testing to ascertain yes or no.
that's true @fbueckert however, it's still an actual problem that you may face and it isn't already answered
I think in this instance you're being way too hard on him
@pixel No, I'm not. If it takes less than a minute to figure it out, it's obvious.
way too hard
Did you know the answer without testing it?
51 secs ago, by fbueckert
@pixel No, I'm not. If it takes less than a minute to figure it out, it's obvious.
Because I wouldn't be willing to commit to a yes or a no without testing it, so it's not "obvious"
4:03 PM
@fbueckert why is it not useful to have that question/answer here?
@murgatroid99 I wouldn't say "useful", however it doesn't break anything in the FAQ so it doesn't cause any trouble by being here either
and yes it can be tested in a minute or less with zero effort
but the question does nothing wrong
And the community has shown that questions that demonstrate zero effort at figuring it yourself are poor questions.
Personally, I expect established users to show a certain amount of intelligence. That question demonstrates exactly none of that.
@fbueckert I will agree with you on that one point - it does seem like it was written by a 1 rep user
@pixel You and I agreeing!? What has the world come to!? :P
hey I agree with anybody who says something I can relate with
what I can't relate with is how you would discriminate against established users when you would probably have a mini whine about it if it was a 1 rep user and then do very little about it
treat everybody equally
4:09 PM
@pixel What, exactly, can we do about unregistered 1-rep users that refuse to learn?
@pixel yes, I think this is the important point. Though there is some weirdness with the fact that he seems to have asked the question just to qualify for the contest
@fbueckert set fire to them
wait, what contest?
Q: Diablo 3 Acts and Gems - Battle the armies of Hell with us and earn awesome prizes

LaurenAfter nearly 4 years of anticipation, Blizzard has finally released the third installment in the Diablo franchise. The heroes who saved the world in Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, have since gone mad. It is up to you, a new generation of heroes, to battle the forces of evil threatening Sanctuary...

I'm not actually going to click on that
"After nearly 4 years of anticipation, we still don't know anything about this game"
@pixel you don't have to. It's just that that was the relevant contest
4:13 PM
why would stackexchange advertise its lack of gaming knowledge so openly?
Diablo 2 didn't come out in 2008
@pixel Diablo 3 was announced in 2008, wasn't it?
Q: World of Warcraft scripting, cast at npc via saved variable name

Gl33mI already have a way of storing what I want to attack in a variable, and can verify that's successful. All I need to know is how to properly cast at something with the name I've stored in said variable. Example Var1 = "Jimmy" /cast [@Var1] Heal The above obviously doesn't work, but I hope it sh...

Q: Mists of Pandaria Streaming

LaurenJust wanted to let you all know that we're sponsoring Midwinter Guild as they participate in 10-man and 25-man beta raiding for Mists of Pandaria. They'll be raiding at 1:30pm and 7:00pm EST today at www.twitch.tv/team/midwinter. They plan to stick around after the raids to do a live Q&A fro...

There were leaked screenshots of Condor's diablo 3 before 2008
@RonanForman I have all 5 episodes uploaded, I just need to put in descriptions and links to the account you will be posting your view on.. and then to deface it for you stabbing me in the back while I was on fire :P
4:14 PM
@James You have them all uploaded?
| platforms = Microsoft Windows, OS X | media = DVD, digital distribution | requirements = | input = Keyboard, mouse }} Diablo III is an action role-playing video game by Blizzard Entertainment, the third installment in the Diablo franchise. The game, which features elements of the hack and slash, and dungeon crawl genres, was released in North America, Latin America, Europe, South Korea, and Taiwan on May 15, 2012 and in Russia on June 7, 2012. Before its release, the game broke several presale records and became the most pre-ordered PC game of all time on Am...
> the game was first announced on June 28, 2008
@RonanForman Yup, 15gigs of video went quietly into google last night, They are all just marked as private so I can mark them as public when we want to show em off :)
Well I have number 1 up, so set it public?
Announcements don't mean the anticipation starts there
Did you miss the "Development on Diablo III began in 2001" in the same sentence?
@RonanForman Do we want a uniform description of them?
@pixel Yeah
4:16 PM
@James If you want I can copy yours.
anyway its not worth arguing over, since I'm right
I am aware of 4 games that are 'in development' that will not be out for 3 years @pixel and will not be announced for another 3.5.. What happens and what gets told officially to the public are not the same dates :)
@fbueckert in context of said competition, I would happen to agree with you
Erm, 4 years and 3.5, hahaha
@pixel You don't anticipate a sequel to a game that isn't even out yet.
4:17 PM
@RonanForman yes you do, you don't find out about something through leaked information and not care about it until its officially annouced
@RonanForman Mine says 'UHCS2E1_Final' right now :)
Let me go type something up
@pixel I don't really think that sort of pedantry is worth criticizing them about
article was written by somebody who was paraphrasing wikipedia, had no personal anticipation about the subject at all
@pixel So in 2007 you were like "I can't wait for diablo 3! But who cares about that diablo 2 that's coming out next year."
@RonanForman uh
Did you PLAY diablo 2?
the game from the year 2000 ?
4:19 PM
I was anticipating Diablo 3 before Blizzard was even a company.
or are you trying to troll me?
because every time you ping me I loose a little more faith in humanity, that you're trying to argue your point based on Diablo 2 coming out in 2007
@OrigamiRobot you hipster you
@pixel I mis-read something that was posted earlier. And no, I've never played any Blizzard game.
@pixel He was like 5 years old then.
@FAE so was I
@RonanForman never play a Blizzard game if you've made it this far, they're addictive, not in a good way
4:20 PM
@pixel You were 7...
Such youngsters
yeah give or take
I was 13. I feel old XD
if it was january I was 6 :P
@AshleyNunn Me too! high-five
4:21 PM
@RonanForman Whats the URL to your account?
@OrigamiRobot high five
When I said this and no-one corrected me I assumed I was right.
4 mins ago, by Ronan Forman
@pixel You don't anticipate a sequel to a game that isn't even out yet.
@James youtube.com/arqadecommunity
assume = ass + u + me
@pixel Its a little early in the morning for that kind of talk :D
So this competition is the same deal as the LoL one? spam loads of questions, get upvotes, better prizes for the more questions/upvotes you get?
4:24 PM
@pixel It was internal, so no.
was or is?
was, ok
hey @badp
4:27 PM
@RonanForman Nice, time for me to spy on the competition :D
@James After the current youtube video I'm watching ends, me too!
@RonanForman :D
((good news is (I have finished exams (this month)) (bad news is ((this '(last) exam) was about (scheme.))) (Expect . parentheses))
4:30 PM
does that mean i get a mousepad
@RonanForman Your transparency is niiice :)
((good news is (I have finished exams (this month)) (bad news is ((this '(last) exam) was about (scheme.))) (Expect . parentheses))
@James Did you not get it working?
@RonanForman I could not find a way to get it to understand the transparent aspect of the video. It would always just black overlay on me :/
4:32 PM
Oooh look at those building skills, a crafting table and a stack of sticks.
I am impressed :)
@James What?
Like I didnt feel nearly as nervous as I did the first time we played, but I was still derping up the recipes something awful :D
@RonanForman I am watching your video, hehe
@James I wasn't nervous until I saw Kenta.
@RonanForman Haha, You need to kill him more often :D
4:36 PM
(don't (smak it (too hard (because (there was some (haskell . (c++ . (prolog . ()))) in ,(it) (and I (don't (want-to (get (monads . (templates . (weird-ass syntax . ()))) in this))))))))))
shoots @Wipqozn
@OrigamiRobot Try hitting him with a stick, its funny how it skews the layout :D
@AshleyNunn Pfft. Youngsters. All of you.
@fbueckert Hush you
shoots @James
4:38 PM
(define origami-robot national-hero) (map hail national-heroes)
@OrigamiRobot eyes the nerf dart as it bounces off him Seriously!?
@James I'll nerf your dart.
Picks up @OrigamiRobot and puts him outside
Calm down.
@James Speaking of Nerf, I really like the gatling gun they came out with.
@fbueckert That vulcan thing?
4:40 PM
@James Yeah.
@RonanForman LoL "OMG Creeper spam blocks!" THat was awesome :D
@RonanForman explodes
(apply lazer ronan)
@James When?
One of these days I want to mod that thing to speed up it's firing rate and range.
4:41 PM
@fbueckert Did you actually try using one? They sucked.. We bought so many guns and had so many battles waiting for that one to come out and then Pft.. it sucked.
@James At base, yeah, it's lackluster. That's where wrenchs, screwdrivers, and a healthy dose of mad scientist come in.
@RonanForman Shortly after the first creeper a second one camea bout and consumed your stack of cobblestone
@james you need to strike the nerf gun with your wrench repeatedly
@James Wait, I remember that now.
4:42 PM
@fbueckert Hmm, maybe we had enough modded faster shooting easier to run the hell away with guns :D
Have any of you ever re-enacted counter strike using LOCKON guns in an abandoned water treatment facility?
if it doesn't seem to work make sure you have enough metal in your pocket.
@fbueckert We had a gold painted gun dubbed '3PO' that would not reach the top of its arc traveling the entire length of our office.. and at point blank ranges was known to draw blood :D
@James I got a First comment! I've made it.
@RonanForman Awesome!
4:44 PM
You got a "FIRST!" on youtube?
People still do that?
@pixel that's like part of our exams to graduate out of the kindergarden.
My buddy modded a single-shot nerf gun to include a massively strong spring. It was such a strong spring, that even hooking the gun onto the ceiling and hanging off of it wasn't enough to cock it back.
time to enable that monetisation option
@OrigamiRobot its the internet, people still link AYB
"First!" will keep happening until somebody makes it not valid as a first comment
Let the skwabbling begin :D
4:45 PM
@James Is that a new dance? Or an old one? Robots don't dance.
"Dear Google... please make 'First!' and all variations an invalid first comment"
did you "First" your own video
@pixel "frosty piss"
@pixel No, someone first'd mine.
4:46 PM
slashdot filters "first!" comments, so that's what you get instead.
Q: Lulu Help, Pix! and Akalis Twilight Shroud?

Hrabri PeroSo, after Lulu cast "Help, Pix!" on Akali and Akali after that enter "Twilight Shroud" will there still be vision of Akali to enemy team or will "Twilight Shroud" cancel vision effect of "Help, Pix!" spell.

oh no, I just misplaced the avatar
They should change it so whenever somebody posts "FIRST" it replaces it to "I am gay"
It would stop instantly
@pixel Homophobic much?
I am not homophobic
my favourite guys in the world are all gay
4:47 PM
you know some people are actually gay
since they don't stare at my ass or try hitting on me
Then why do you think it's an insult to be called gay?
I don't, most of the internet does
....wow, @pixel. I just....I have no words for you right now.
I'm sorry :(
4:48 PM
@RonanForman Is that your first first? :)
I have acrophobia.
@James I don't know.
I will go sit in the sin bin in anticipation for the inevitable flag that got raised
@pixel o.O
@pixel I'm thinking a little thought before posting may be in order.
4:49 PM
It doesn't cross my mind as an insult
@James Is there a way to see all my comments?
Otherwise we're going to be hitting Gnome's level of bad.
I can see how it would be for anybody who is overly politically correct
I've been there and I've done that, pixel, don't worry.
Okay, I'mma just gonna walk the heck away from this before I get testy.
4:50 PM
I know how to fix this.
@RonanForman Supposedly some where.. but I do not really know :)
@AshleyNunn you stay, I'll go
@pixel oh, pft, don't. I am not leaving the room, just not engaging in the conversation
@James I can see the number of comments on videos, but no the text themselves.
4:51 PM
@OrigamiRobot You know just how to make me smile :D
@OrigamiRobot I am now disappointed in you.
EVERYONE knows disagreements are resolved through explosions.
@James You say right off the bat too much.
This has no explosions, hence there is no fixing.
@RonanForman Yeah well, you have a funny accent :P
@OrigamiRobot Ok, that made me laugh.
But my point stands!
@MadScientist Youtube comments.
White cheddar cheese slices are about the best food ever. /random
@RonanForman Youtube comments don't exist
@James Well you smell funny.
4:53 PM
@RonanForman Dude! You had to AFK in the first episode!?
@James Got to that bit eh.
@RonanForman Yeah, hehe, Slacker :)
So I found out that the more prepared I am for the UHC the less likely it is to happen
I didnt rush to eat anything and this one went off pretty smoothly :)
@James Only oak trees drop apples.
@fbueckert If you laughed, you point is invalid. Thus sayeth the Internet!
@RonanForman Yeah I do believe I mention I should be chopping down oaks instead :)
And god I hope you kill this spider soon :P
4:55 PM
DayZ controls are sooooooooo hard to figure out.
@Fluttershy Get a TrackIR
@Fluttershy And beware of the asshat hackers
@James I don't even know what you are talking about....
@Fluttershy If by "controls" you mean "everything", I agree.
@OrigamiRobot If you can figure out controls, the rest is easy: Survive.
@James And this is why I won't play it. Beyond the fact I don't own Arma.
4:56 PM
@Fluttershy Its the head tracking unit, it works well
Blaming me eh!? @RonanForman :P
@fbueckert 40-50% off during the steam sale :D
@James I don't know what that means. I like... just started playing today.
@James I think that town is in the only corner I didn't go to.
@Fluttershy I was better at surviving when all I knew how to do was stand in a field.
@RonanForman I love how you need a day to prepare to be professional :D
@James Don't care. :P Never hit my radar as something worth playing.
My current highly anticipated game is Legends of Pegasus.
@James I didn't know I was going to be recording, so I had not had tea yet.
I can not express how much game play improves with that thing for eyeing zombies around you.
@RonanForman But you made a sandwich! That could have involved making some tea :D
@James But if you turn your head you're no longer looking at the screen.
@James I'm not gonna waste $150 on that when I don't even know what the controls are... I can't even figure out how to loot people I kill
@James I didn't make the sandwich.
4:59 PM
@RonanForman Its not a 1 to 1 ratio of movement.
@Fluttershy You killed something?
@OrigamiRobot Three zombies... And I think a player on accident.
@Fluttershy move up to them and look
@James You.... aren't helping at all right now.
@Fluttershy I can't even find a weapon
4:59 PM
@OrigamiRobot You start with a pistol. o.O
