I finally got around to answering Hamlet's Back It Up! question, if anyone's interested.
 
1:01 AM
@Crafter0800 lol no not at all. I was curious. We have 3 cats, it wouldn't be good for the bunnies
 
1:19 AM
hm is anyone home?

@John I'm AEST

BST over here (UK time, which is GMT+1 currently)

@YvetteColomb @Crafter0800 For a small site, we are pretty global.
 
9:06 AM
@John yeh it's good :) we also have someone from India
 
9:31 AM
Global users is always a great thing for stuff like this, especially with Moderators so we can essentially keep the site clean 24/7 rather than having a 6 hour period where no Mods are available. It also helps answer questions from around the world too which is always handy.
 
10:13 AM
yep I agree

My only concern is the fact that currently the top 3 voted people are all US timezones, would be nice to now have all the moderators in the same timezone so people in other timezones can access a mod easily
Not that that's a BAD thing, it's great that we have 3 moderators which the majority of the community likes, just my concerns is coverage of all timezones, day and night
 
12:14 PM
you're right @Crafter0800, I guess
 
12:35 PM
@Crafter0800 SE will almost certainly take that into account when making the decision, AFAIK.
Practicality does play a role in their choices, and you're right, it might be impractical to have such a gap.
I hope that the site's going to be pretty diverse, because it's got that potential, and as John said above, we already do have folks from around the world.
As we grow, it's going to be more important that we become a site for everyone, by everyone.
 
My only concern about them then picking someone from another timezone, is that literally everyone else has at most an overall vote of +1, which means they aren't the communities favorites, and I'm not sure what the right balance is lol
I trust SE to make the right choice in the end, they've been doing it far longer than any of us and probably know what's best lol
 
@Crafter0800 That's true. It seems like all of the nominations quickly racked up 2-3 downvotes across the board, which seems a bit odd; I haven't seen any specific criticism raised. I have trust in the current suggestions, but I'm guessing some people disagree. It'd be nice to know why.
Haha, definitely.
 
Yea it does seem odd EVERYONE got 2 or more downvotes, I'm suspecting maybe some trolls, but that's only my guess, odds are was just coincidence lol. Feedback would be nice (I love constructive criticism) but I can see why others might not share it.
Also I've noticed I keep forgetting to tag/converse my comments to you xD sorry
@HDE226868 at the end of the day (yay I remembered) all we can do is see who SE select, and have faith in their decision and support the selected Mods to the best of our ability :P
 
@Crafter0800 That's fine. When it's clear who the message is addressed to, there's no need to tag the other person.
 
@HDE226868 lol okay :3
 
1:10 PM
*HDE226868 Do you know about insects?
Nevermind
 
Insects? That seems... rather odd, may I ask what you were intending to ask him? x3
 
Are spiders insects?
 
No
Insects have 6 legs :P
 
I knew it.
 
From wikipedia:
"a small arthropod animal that has six legs and generally one or two pairs of wings"
(bolding mine)
Arachnids are what spiders are, having 8 legs.
Hm in prep to the public beta I'm looking through all the tags we have on public and meta, should I be creating meta posts when I'm considering removing redundant tags or should I be just going ahead and doing it if I feel they are duplicate? Example - interpersonal.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/203/…
Another example on meta is the tags and , however given that other sites use only I'm planning on replacing them anyways
@HenryWHHackv2.0 lol I just found that area51 proposal :^) area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/111318/insects
 
1:29 PM
@Crafter0800 How did you figured it out?
 
@HenryWHHackv2.0 How did I find that proposal or how did I know they weren't insects?
 
Ok now I know.
 
@HenryWHHackv2.0 okay :P
 
Ok you can chat in peace. (If you want to.)
 
I mean I don't think we were really chatting about anything really, something to talk about, even about insects is welcome here lol

Q: Should we have examples of social events as tags as well as the tag "Social Event"?

Crafter0800As stated in the question, are tags such as dance and party necessary, or should we aim to remove them, using the social-event tag instead?

I would like to ask a question but not sure if it would be off topic. Is it appropriate for members of a group of friends to buy the soft drinks for the designated driver especially if they have given up a night's drinking (not a non-drinker) for the sake of the others? My problem is how to frame it without it being opinion based. Any suggestions?
 
@Crafter0800 It really depends. Most things when they come to moderation don't need immediate action. We tend to think they do but it's not going to be super damaging if it sticks around for a while, and really bad content can be removed with enough regular users. All three of the mods on Arts & Crafts are in the US and we haven't had much trouble...
That said, it's a pretty low-incidence site.

That moment when you realize you have more posts on meta than on the main site. . .

@HDE226868 #storyofmylife
 
How many posts on main do you need to fulfill the commitment? 10?
I'd be one down.
 
@HDE226868 I think it varies
 
I don't think you have to do it before the end of private beta, though, do you?
 
Nope
Within the 90 days though
 
9:29 PM
Plenty of time. :D
 
@HDE226868 I fulfilled on crafts with 3 answers and questions each
 
@Zizouz212 Oh, excellent.
 
I still haven't fulfilled on Lit. :/
 
I think it's a mix between posts and times and what nots.

@Crafter0800 I agree.
@Crafter0800 the votes have changed a bit
@HDE226868 yep I agree, when you're both in the room conversing like this, it's easy to see who is being addressed. @Crafter0800 when I come in the room after the fact I always link a reply, so people know what I'm referring to
@HenryWHHackv2.0 no spiders are not insects :)
@Crafter0800 yep I saw that, I think it's a good idea
@rm that sounds like a good question and a good idea
