Q: How do I figure Out What These People Want Without Coming Off In The Wrong Way

zurielbastionHow do I come off without sounding sarcastic and only do so through non direct means but still convey somehow what I mean or empathy to a complex situation that hasn't been resolved from when it started over two years ago. I have to do so through only social media, to a large number of people fro...

Q: Finding a local group that advocates against H1B visas without questioning my Americanness or my citizenship

Krishna(This has already been posted in PoliticsSE, where it was closed for being "off-topic because the lowest note of a piano is an A, not a C.")

@dhein gotta go to a friend's engagement. Feelin' a bit tired already.
 
@avazula How just apparently? :P
@AJ Might get better once you are there. Wishing you luck under this aspect :)

@dhein Probably. After all, I am meeting him after a few months.
 
@AJ Such visits from my experience are usually those turning out less stressful than I expected them to be :)

@EmC don't think so
Area 51 proposals are pretty much "doomed" anyways
Now to propose a website you already need a community for it, you can't just wait for people to see and follow it. Having a community ready means 300+ users making proposed questions and then if the site goes online to be active enough

@EmC I think emoji usage is 1) flavor of the month based, 2) culture based, 3) opinion based. Sounds like it'll make great stack content ;)
oh, along with a good amount of nsfw content
 
I always looked for an SE site for asking trivial questions.

While I can agree that showing empathy is usually a good thing, I just can't do so for someone who willingly put others like in dangers. As for trying to help her, this is not the first time she drives drunk, she's been arrested for it, several times, we tried to help her, offering to drive for her when she goes to party, but she still continued to drive drunk, at this point, I don't have any help I can, or want to, offer her. — user3399 1 min ago

its not an aic but it is nln, should that be tp or fp
 
@AlexRobinson if it's not a good comment it's a tp, not matter which reason it got caught for =)
 
Can you please explain why do you think this will work? Did you do something similar in the past and it worked? Did you read something about it in a book? To be honest, I find your way quite (passive) aggressive towards the friends. I would feel uncomfortable if someone would just shoo me, only because they have a right. There are several points I disagree with, and before me going into the details, you should make an update, to explain, as I mentioned. — virolino 14 secs ago

10:18 AM
@AlexRobinson yw, it was troubling for me too at first :p
 
I think it is troubling for everyone. I had the same problem too and I can't remember anyone who hadn't ^^
 
The bot gives the impression that if you do tp it will associate it with the regex that caught the comment which I believe it's not
 
that was my exact concern lol
 
@CaldeiraG well... it actually does.
(was looking for a Closet example but seems like chumpbot does not understand !!/ statements like IPS comment bot used to)
so, sorry, can't prove my point shrug
:p
nevermind, @Ælis helped me
So when you tp something it adds to the associated regex(es) stats, like this:
in The Closet, 46 secs ago, by chumpbot
 Type | # Matched | % of Matched | % of All Type | % of ALL Comments
--------------------------------------------------------------------
  tp  |     1     |    50.0%     |  3.84615385%  |   0.12562814%
  fp  |     0     |     0.0%     |     0.0%      |       0.0%
Total |     2     |      -       |       -       |   0.25125628%
^this is an example of how good "i\Wwould\Wbe" is supposed to be on questions
 
10:33 AM
@avazula Not sure it actually add. This command also work for new regex, so I think every comment are stored and rescanned when you do a "howgood"
 
@Ælis what I meant is that when you tp or fp it says to the bot whether it's a good regex
 
@avazula Isn't it more like saying to the bot if it's a good comment and the bot then extrapolate from that to let you know if the regex is good?
 
@Ælis I'm sorry, I don't understand the difference between the two options
 
It's not really important, so maybe we could just drop it?
 
cc @scohe001 :p
I don't understand much either but I see what you're trying to tell
 
10:59 AM
I have some edge cases of duplicate votes pending and mods are offline :(
no 3k user has voted either
is it a timeline issue ?
 
@Ælis sure :)

Personally, I would also add to that (indirectly), that I will show understanding for and respect her decision regardless of whether she feels comfortable to re-establish this friendly relationship or not. OP has systematically pressured her into building these boundaries, and should acknowledge that he accepts the consequences. — fragamemnon 1 min ago

Have you tried turning the argument back round and pointing it at your friends? So, rather than it being you who's a 'bad friend', it's them who are condoning drunken behaviour that's liable to kill people? In fact, do you even want to continue being friends with these people? — Aaron F 23 secs ago

12:58 PM
@AJ hehe aren't those the best kind? :P
@CaldeiraG @Ava @Alex @Ælis I completely agree the wording is a little weird. We say "caught correctly" even though the comment may not have been "caught" by anything (since there are so many ways for a comment to be reported here without any regexes now). I'm all for updating that wording. Maybe "Marked this comment as not a good fit for the site (tp)."? Any better ideas?
 
honestly, the wording is a bit "off" but it is very concise which i feel is more important - it just needs to be explained to everyone once

@scohe001 "not a good fit" seems weird, but all the other phrasing I have could be perceived as a bit rude ^^ But yeah, I like your new phrasing much better than the old one (which really wasn't explicite)

As with buses and public transport (and parking) you let people inside out so you can go inside. If the person inside let you in then they usually hold the door and make a "welcome" hand gesture to encourage you to enter. — SZCZERZO KŁY 3 mins ago

I came to the client office today because I was told to yesterday, when I got here I found out that I don't actually need to be here and the rest of my team is elsewhere :(
 
@Rainbacon Arf, not cool :/
 
There was a slack message sent yesterday, but it was sent after I left work and didn't use any sort of ping, so I didn't get a notification
 
That really sucks. I hate it when people send you message from one day to the other and expect you to read them even though you aren't at work
 
Any particular reason why you think practicality might differ from politeness? Also just to be certain: you want a answer that presumes either of the involved is holding open the door but the answer HAS to be independent of whom holds it open? Or can that be considered in that be considered for the approach, too? — dhein 1 min ago

@AJ ooh I like this one! That's an optimistic outlook on life--enjoying the little things :)
@Ælis @Alex How about "Marked this comment as removable from IPS (tp)."? And then fp can be "Marked this comment as good for IPS (fp)." I'm fine with anything, these would all be trivial changes, so it's no skin off my back :p
 
i like that!

"Marked this report as flaggable (tp)"
 
i also like that!
 
@user58 ooh this is better
How about for fp? "Marked this comment as unflaggifiable?"
 
"not flaggable"
 
Lol ;p
 
Also @Ælis a few days after I planned it, but I've got that Sandbox question for you :p

can we get an evil laugh to play too when it replies? :P
 
Oh that'd be great. If it could change the chat ping sound and then ping you when it does it so only you hear it lol
 
You could write a userscript to do that

Yea but then y'all would all have to download and use that userscript. I can't control that :(
