@AGirlHasNoName I used different names before this one. When I saw faq by Shog9, I changed the name to Nog Shine for pun. Later I didn't have to change the name again.
 
Still I like it. It's a bold name.

@AGirlHasNoName I just received a lovely kitten picture from SE Inc. along with a lovely message. Long story short: they do care about us and it feels good to know that you are hear.
Here are the kitten:
 
7:35 AM
@Ælis Oh, has there been an update?
 
@M.A.R. No it was a private email, so I won't talk about it on MSE
 
Oh. This is awkward.
I wouldn't keep silent not to make 58 happy
@Ælis Have you seen the CM response to the letter?
Apparently more promises and we need to wait till, I forgot, Tuesday and see what happens
BUT, at least it's something
The silence has been deafening.
^ I dunno where I heard that but I stole it

@M.A.R. I did not see that. Do you have a link?

@ankii Since I'm now on my computer: currently, the state of the accepted answer under my MSE question is: +42; -16 = 26
 
11:18 AM
For the record, when you compare it to other LGBT+ answers, it's really not bad. I was afraid it would be worse. By comparison, this one is +53; -41 = 12
 
11:45 AM
@Ælis aww
I'd like a message if my own. I still don't feel all that loved.
 
@AGirlHasNoName Yeah, a public message would be nice too. This private message means I don't mind waiting extra longer, but I know a lot of people out there don't feel that way
 
I get that.

A: Dear Stack Exchange: a statement and a letter from your moderators

Cesar MThank you for writing to us about this. This isn’t our final response here, but in the interest of being transparent and keeping lines of communication open, we wanted to respond with something as soon as possible. While this isn’t the answer you’ve been looking for, we wanted to update you on so...

 
@M.A.R. Thanks! I was just about to tell you that I found it :p
 
Too bad it wasn't more "visibly" post though (since I'm only looking at new questions, old answers tend to get pass me)
@M.A.R. Ahah xD

I ran out of comment votes in twenty minutes on MSE
Tink got three of em 😂
 
Aww, only three?! :P
 
@Tinkeringbell I ran out.
 
Hahaha I don't think I've posted many more comments today either ;)
 
That was an ugly thread. The accusations of censorship are making things uglier.
 
People are mad. It's what happens when emotions take over: things get ugly.
 
2:47 PM
Considering how emotional I've been over all this. I can absolutely relate to that.
Thank you for humanizing the other side for me for a moment.

3:56 PM
@Ælis In general, I'll stick with "they", but I still don't mind any way all that much.
 
4:22 PM
Fixed ;p
 
@user58 While you're here... now that you're no longer a mod, I feel we kinda need to ask: You've helped out a lot with moderating this room in the past, would you welcome RO powers here? :)
 
Oh. Um. Sure, I guess. I might as well be able to continue picking up after my bot...
 
Cool, I'll fix that then :)
 
Whee. Thanks :)
 
4:33 PM
You too, picking up after your bot is important! :D
 
4:47 PM
And delete if IPS bot drops by
Hi I hope you're doing well in your life! And this answer might be relatable to OP too. Can you add a bit about how to use the nerd behaviour in conversation? Looking forward to a cool example :) — ankii 59 secs ago
Context, Belle's question, user has 119 rep and one previous answer
 
@Feeds Absolute power corrupts absolutely @Tink
 
you forgot to add \s?
 
What's that, I don't do that
I thought it was implied with my username.
 
@M.A.R. You're saying there was a time I wasn't corrupted?
 
> If enough Moderators step down, maybe Stack Exchange's CEO will be writing a similar post soon.
Whoa!!
 
4:54 PM
@ankii What M.A.R says is almost always sarcastic. If fact, I was surprised (and amazed!) when I saw them talking seriously in The Tavern of Meta
 
@Tinkeringbell I'm more concerned about the magnitude of the evil that you have given the authority to . . . uh, have an italic name, and . . . uh . . . have an italic name, and
 
@M.A.R. Ah. Well, I'm sure it'll be fine :)
 
people seem to enjoy making me italic for some reason. they're all crazy
 
@ankii Did you flag? I don't have the energy to comment right now, but I probably will when it shows up in the review queue (but will be very greatful if someone else decide to comment
 
Your name is still not crushed for me and I will not reload this tab
 
4:55 PM
@user58 italic: "emphasis or distinction" hmm
@Ælis oh I was asking if this comment is fine or not.. I will flag though
 
@ankii "nerd" and "cool" are not really descriptive terms to inquire someone about. You need to be more specific about what they should elaborate in their answer.
 
in Tavern on the Meta on Meta Stack Exchange Chat, 22 hours ago, by M.A.R.
@ankii You are talking to a blunt user. How may I help?
@M.A.R. present a convo example..
 
@ankii A double blind study with 9000 participants over a span of 9 years to explain what "nerdish behavior" is, with 103 references and three pages of acknowledgements and some licensing.
Anything less comprehensive and BURN WITH EXTREME PREJUDICE
 
@M.A.R. Just look at me and call it a day.
 
I kept doing that for 10 seconds. Nothing happened.
Gets up and moves away with a "kick me" sign on his back
 
5:01 PM
I'd be happy if they make an initial revision.. Later on, some smalltalk can fix the answer for the better.
 
@ankii Oh, sorry, I thought you were asking for someone to add an additional comment with relevant links ^^' Well, the tone of your comment is very friendly (which is really great), I think it's lacking a link to a relevant meta though (like the one about "how do I write a good answer"). Also, being a bit more specific could have help, but I struggle myself with being specific so I don't know what more specific thing you could have said instead ^^
 
I think it's not blunt enough hammers fist on the table
 
Ah.. I am always friendly.. just a bit less on some days. ( Unlike we know who) looks at a racoon
Will build atop this one next time.
 
@ankii We have a racoon? Oo
 
@Ælis the raccoon part has been archived.. for "posterity".
Whatever that means
 
5:30 PM
imgur.com/gallery/JP0nQXP < These are very pretty and creative :)
 
Ash
@Tinkeringbell Oh, I follow this artist on Instagram, I love his work.
 
@Ash Perhaps I should get Instagram just to follow some artists ;) I hadn't seen them before, but I do love them too!
 
Ash
I use it to follow a lot of art I like.
If you like cute drawings of animals that are usually puns, Piper Thibodeau does excellent work - instagram.com/piperdraws/?hl=en
 
Aww! Those do look very cute and I love how colourful they are too :)
(I also really like the sketches, where you can see how the drawings are made :D)
 
Ash
I like that she puts those in, yes
 
5:40 PM
I used to have (should still have, but have no clue where it is) a book titled 'Ik kan tekenen' (I can draw), that had a lot of these step by step tutorials on how to draw stuff. From cars to animals to dinosaurs. These sketches remind me of that :D
 
@Tinkeringbell Food art. That's fun
 
@Ash I'm kinda sad I can't scroll much further down there, without instagram asking me to create an account :(
 
Ash
5:58 PM
@Tinkeringbell Aww, that's unfortunate
 
6:08 PM
I did just finish reading all of the cats cafe comics though. Those are supercute too :)
 
6:32 PM
@Tinkeringbell yup they introduced this recently.. I tried using ublock origin to block the banner, but they jammed scrolling too. I don't want to mess with javascript there..
Also, apple.stackexchange.com/posts/68884/revisions Let's see non-meta-regulars can catch the catch here or not.
 
@ankii did you use the yo dawg meme on that guy?
 
@M.A.R. haha feels good to know about doing something funny unknowingly
 
6:59 PM
Oh dear, I just post something on The Tavern of Meta and I feel terrified. I'm afraid someone is going to jump at my throat anytime now and scream "CENSORSHIP!!!"
 
CENSORSHIP!!!
 
@M.A.R. Be careful or I will be the one censoring you! Mouhahaha
:p
 
@Ælis As a regular, being brutally honest, I'm a bit suspicious of the random people that pop in and suddenly opine on a topic, or reply to someone, because these days it has almost invariably caused polarization and drama
Plus when your starting message is seriousish, you're bound to get a serious reply
So unless you have the stamina of bearing the burden of a heavy online debate with someone potentially very stubborn or even ignorant, I wouldn't recommend it
Of course, I'm not talking about myself since I've seen you here, but other folks might feel that way.
 
@Ælis it's one of the best defenses a troll can have: disrupt coordinated countermeasures. While directly asking for flags has been frowned upon on SE for quite a while, I think some people may have been using that in their defense lately and I dislike that too :(
 
On the plus side, though, the Tavern gets none of the bigotry on some of the posts on the site
Unless your bar is a bit high
@Tinkeringbell though TBH the fine line between disagreements and rudeness has been increasingly thin for me these days
I refrain from voting or flagging on most of the ideological posts unless the OP's intentions are made clear to me
 
7:12 PM
@M.A.R. It is, especially with such sensitive subjects.. but disagreement doesn't get to be rude. I think the post instating MSE mods also referred to that...
 
@Tinkeringbell which one was that
Ugh, this doesn't happen often, for a post on meta to be mentioned and me having missed it
 
@M.A.R. A debate is something I want to avoid at all cost. And deleting a comment that could start one seems like the right thing to do in this regard
 
@M.A.R. All of them, lately? I had to spend 2,5 weeks just thinking through stuff before I even felt I could live with moderating MSE at this point in time. But just because I have the restraint to stay mostly silent, doesn't mean others process their feelings the same way :/
 
@Tinkeringbell no I mean the post asking for meta.SE mods' reinstatement
 
@M.A.R. no, just instating ;)
 
7:21 PM
Oh I see, how many questions do I have? Is the post made by an animal? Does the post fit in the pocket? Do people eat it for breakfast?
@Tinkeringbell I mean, I don't have any restraint at all
 
But by now I've made my feelings into an .rar file and put a password on it I forgot
 
Gimme some time! I'm half tipsy and on mobile
 
Oh wait. I totally misread your comment
I should maybe extract the files in that .rar
Nah
 
@M.A.R. heh. I have done that with some of it too. I can hack into it later. The most important stuff is figured out though, I hope. Or I'll crash and burn in 6-8 weeks time. We'll see ;)
 
7:24 PM
Meh, sounds like things have settled down
I see a 2 hours later… in SO's meta room which is good evidence
 
Hahahahahaha
Sorry. Given the number of flags I handled on MSE today...
 
Yesterday I even saw people other than me trying to be funny in the Tavern. That was refreshing.
Or maybe they saw how wise I am.
. . . we're doomed
But anyway, I won't replace having Brits make bad jokes for almost anything in life
 
@M.A.R. Aww! Just know that you can never be replaced!
 
i forgot WHY I CAME IN THIS ROOM.
this is happening in digital rooms too!
 
8:11 PM
@ankii there's nothing to eat, move on ;)
 
Nothing to eat!? That's it, I'm out.
 
I can hang out for a bit.. I found coffee in another room
and they used their secret sugar which tastes better than the packets they give
do you code in C? @Tinkeringbell
 
C isn't occult enough...
 
I used to be a chef. I'm sure I can whip up something
 
pointers make everything hermetic
 
8:19 PM
@ankii nope! I code using Magik
(I do hope the push to replace it with Java continues though)
 
C++ is magik
 
Ohh that is new to me.. I actually never had to make a choice among languages..
and I realised after pinging you that I better not post those code blocks here for doubt clearing..
@AGirlHasNoName There are hardly any underscores in C++, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magik_(programming_language) has a lot
