12:00 AM
I don't have any iOS device, and I'm not going to buy one just to win :/
you could totally use somebody else's
@Hakase That would require me to talk to people irl
it's how everybody got their Mac OS X earbuds in TF2
@LoganM guess the higher ups assumed you'd try and get every hat and made some that required the app lol
More trash to clean up on SO
app is easy
@nhahtdh I'll just cheat that one.
@nhahtdh you could get that hat easily on lifehacks
12:05 AM
Does lifehacks have hats?
@LoganM *shrugs*
Another crap one, though fits the theme of our site: winterbash2014.stackexchange.com/naruto
Why encourage accept a 0 vote answer?
Jon Ericson on December 14, 2014

There is no better antidote, at least for the worst hours and eclipses of the soul, than to conjure up … serious frivolity.—Friedrich Nietzsche

No, it’s not a new flavor of Unix shell. Rather, Winter Bash is an ancient tradition of Stack Exchange. (2011 is ancient according to Internet time.) Here’s how it works:

Starting right now, when you complete one of 30-odd challenges while logged on a participating site, you will be awarded the associated hat. To notify you, an icon will light up on the top bar. In addition, admire your hat collection on the Winter Bash 2014 site …

@nhahtdh i don't get why it's called Naruto apart from a visual thing, shouldn't the requirement match the character
wait, how many bots do we have now?
12:07 AM
like 59
exactly all of us here are bots
2 of these hats can be found in TF2 :p
@nhahtdh there's more than 2 atleast, i know at least 5, Sakamoto, HoiHoi-san, Taisho, Beta-Kun, and now Notice Me, Senpai! i was wondering how many more we have
magi has gotten really wierd...
totally doesn't fit the spirit it had in the beginning anymore
k sleep time
enjoy the burning hats
12:11 AM
@Memor-X: Hoihoi, Taisho and Karasu are bots by users
Sakamoto is SE bot
The other 2 I haven't seen
@Memor-X I'm not really sure my self, but they said Tsukimonogatari is the first story of monogatari series final season. They still have 4-5 LN left iirc
I haven't read their LN
@OshinoShinobu is Tsuki in the works/currently being aired
it will air in 31 Dec
@OshinoShinobu is there any anime before it that's already out (yet after Oni)
it's about Kanbaru
12:19 AM
Hana is the very last event in the timeline
Tsuki is after Koi, which means after most of the other stories in First and Second Season
@nhahtdh so every other series left will have Koyomi in highschool?
@OshinoShinobu yeap
Yep and also graduation
@Memor-X Karasu is dead, as for the other one i do remember another bot but I can't recall
12:21 AM
Oh yeah Ruri
Ruri is frozen
there are only two active bots right now, hoi hoi and taisho
@Memor-X Otori + Koi
I hope beta-kun will become release-kun someday~
12:47 AM
Q: Why naruto still can use rasen shuriken?

SarenyaWhen naruto first used rasen shuriken against kakuzu. The effect was massive, he destroyed two of kakuzu hearts, but there were a huge after effect to him. If I'm not mistaken tsunade advised kakashi to ask naruto never to use the technique again due to the huge risk. So why naruto still able t...

This is going to be a long winter.
Sadly, there aren't too many I can give you without your consent. Otherwise I was thinking about trying to make you the winner this year instead of me.
1:09 AM
Q: Akame Ga Kill Manga differences?

Son TranFirst question is why is the anime finished before manga? I might be wrong but the latest manga chapter i can find is WAY before the anime finale. I've heard that the anime is actually different from the manga so does that mean we might get a remake like Full Metal Alchemist? And will the mang...

1:24 AM
Hats don't confuse me. They burden me with pain as though I've been devoured by a hundred Xenomorphs.
I know "Fascinating" but I haven't figured out the yellow-shirt version yet.
1:43 AM
This forced Secret Santa would be a good opportunity to corrupt a person, if only i could get a cute Nendoroid in from overseas within a week, which will never happen
Things I've concluded: If it is based on votes, ignoring that anomalous example, it only requires a single vote, and not necessarily on something which you have any particular connection to
Q: What's the joke behind the "Naruto" hat for Winter Bash?

senshinOne of the hats for Winter Bash 2014 is titled "Naruto", and has the description post an accepted answer that receives no other votes for 12 hours Having never seen Naruto, I'm curious what the joke here is. (Should this go here or on the main site? Beats me; migrate if you see fit.)

2:12 AM
Chaika? Chaika
@Frosteeze apparently by what the image name says, i just know it's coffin princess
who's in incursio?
2:28 AM
@ton.yeung She's fine. She has a tendency to bottle things up and that was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back.
She's been needing to vent for awhile now.
@Yuuki so she's not that pissed at @ʞɹɐzǝɹ?
@ton.yeung Not really. She'll probably be a little short with him next time they meet though.
This semester's been pretty tough on her.
ahh i see, so wanna go to matsuri?
@ton.yeung When is that again?
2:30 AM
@ton.yeung Oh good, I have time to decide whether or not I want to do a cosplay.
And if so, what to cosplay.
HOLY SHIT!!! the super passes are 180???
@ton.yeung Looking at the perks, I don't think I'd be getting one of those.
i might have considered it if it was at 150
but not at 180
I'm not one to take photos.
So the perks aren't really a pull for me.
2:32 AM
@Yuuki i don't care about the photos, its the VIP seating and line skipping that i like
looks like group pass is 10 people minimum
if you sister goes that's still only 5 people
@ton.yeung I can see if a couple of my friends from Oklahoma are interested.
Usually, they go to the one in Dallas.
@Yuuki we still need anther FIVE
Can't remember the name.
@ton.yeung Yeah, I might be able to wrangle five.
you guys are the only ones i know in town
@Yuuki a-kon?
The more I look at hats this year, it looks like it won't be anywhere near as interesting as last year. There are relatively few actual difficult hats and a lot of gimmicky ones. Unless all the good ones are hiding as secret hats, it's going to be a lot more of just "go in, get hat, leave" than last year.
2:35 AM
@ton.yeung Yeah, that's the one.
@ton.yeung And I can always ask around at the UH anime club.
Unless the group pass requires that we all stick together.
Of all places, the first hat I got was here on Anime.SE.
@Yuuki nope, the only requirement is that the group leader or sub leader can pick up the passes
Wait, hats don't transfer across sites now?
@Mysticial what, as in wear them?
I put a hat on here, and it's not showing up on SO.
2:39 AM
@Mysticial no they, i don't have any hats on SciFi but i'm wearing one i got on Anime and Arqade
and it's also appearing on SO
did you make sure you didn't have the "only on this site" box ticked?
Wait, I have the vote hat on SO, and I'm not getting hats on SO.
I did not click that box.
i'm seeing you hat just fine on Anime, maybe your Cache?
I'm not getting my hat on SO.
I have on Anime.SE fine.
@Mysticial i see it on So just fine too, i went to your SO account first (from the chat here)
maybe it's a cookie thing.
2:42 AM
Maybe it's client-side caching.
Lemme restart FF.
@Mysticial that's what i'm seeing
no use
@Mysticial what i am seeing in chat
2:46 AM
I don't see any hats in chat yet.
i dare say your avatar here will wear the same hat as the parent user
got to say it does suit you
@Mysticial I do.
@Mysticial maybe a full browser wipe, delete everything associated with the browser history (cache, cookies, form data, etc, every single tick box in the dialog)
I'm also seeing hats on meta.SE. Just not on SO.
I just logged in on a different computer same thing.
Lemme go ask on the Tavern.
2:49 AM
@Mysticial I don't even have that one yet.
@Yuuki okay, lets see if you can get some people together by mid january
that's when the prices increase again
I see hats on chat.meta.SE, but not here or chat.SO.
I see hats here
@Mysticial restart browser, then restart pc, then reformat pc
Not sure what the problem is on your end.
2:59 AM
I did that already.
Oh, I had to click on the stupid icon at the top actually enable it.
On SO, yes
Same as last year
Wow just got a silver badge. Didn't know I was anywhere near that.
3:15 AM
when's Hanukkah?
!!wiki Hanukkah
Hanukkah (/ˈhɑːnəkə/ HAH-nə-kə; Hebrew: חֲנֻכָּה, Tiberian: Ḥănukkāh, usually spelled חנוכה, pronounced [χanuˈka] in Modern Hebrew; a transliteration also romanized as Chanukah or Chanukkah), also known as the Festival of Lights, Feast of Dedication, is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire of the 2nd century BC. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from...

That doesn't help me :/
Dec 16-24 this year according to wiki
3:23 AM
Q: What does Ikumi mean by "Sand that looks like it's from Koshien"?

SheharyarIn the anime Jinsei - Episode 2, a boy asks them advice on what to give his friend as a Birthday present that doesn't come off as cheap. Ikumi gives this advice: I googled Koshien and all I was able to figure out was that it's a Baseball stadium built for High School tournaments. Does this me...

3:38 AM
@LoganM fuck you beat me to it
3:49 AM
looks ok but would be better if the hair touched the parrot
4:24 AM
Q: What anime could these two characters be from?

Kafuri I know their faces aren't visible, but a guess would be helpful too.

5:18 AM
@Taisho thx
imagine if taisho gets a loli
that would be ridiculous
Star this if you want to see HoiHoi-san awarded hats
Star this if you want to see Taisho awarded hats
she gets a loli....for getting a high stared chat post!
Lolis are the best!
5:50 AM
x-ange got really wierd
@Hakase This was a pretty good part
One of the better parts of the anime so far. For the most part the anime has been worse than the manga.
oh right.., @Memor-X you whould watch x-ange. lots of yuri
5:53 AM
@ton.yeung what, undertone like Nanoha and Yuruyuri or actual themes like Maria Watches Over Us and Strawberry Panic!
@Memor-X i dunno what you mean, but its pretty obvious yuri
@ton.yeung Undertone = we don't see the relationship but it hints on it, you normally see it on fan maertial | actual theme = we see couples kiss/date/whatever
@Memor-X latter
@ton.yeung x-ange?
5:59 AM
@Memor-X yea i think so
hmm, localized too, good.....god dam why is my nose bleeding!
6:54 AM
yay Shimakaze
who's ready for Kancolle anime?
her face is kinda derpy though in that image
7:10 AM
oh wow.. all but one regios volume translated.. maybe i should start reading it
7:23 AM
oh shit, index volume 11 got fully translated
@MadaraUchiha are you able to get index NT vol 11 of the BT mobile app? I tried refreshing chapters and refreshing by itself and it doesn't show up
7:40 AM
If you really want to, go ahead, but I just finished rewriting our entire conversation so that no one would be able to find it.
7:53 AM
2 messages moved to /anime/bin
Don't worry I'm blue.
Blue solves everything.
done my part
8:09 AM
Did you mean loli?
weekend is over :(
Gu is like my favorite non-human character in that show.
8:37 AM
So I'm trying to get the upvote a newbie hat. But I absolutely refuse to upvote crap. I'm running down SO's new questions list. Every single question asked by a 1 rep user on the first page is downvoted.
@LoganM you're aiming for #1 this year too?
Yeah, and we're gonna help him.
@Mysticial xD Find something salvageable, edit and upvote.
@MadaraUchiha "Salvageable"? Yeah right...
You of all people from PHP should know better than to use that word. :)
8:41 AM
@Mysticial Touche.
@MadaraUchiha Will try.
If you need help with cheating getting hats, do tell.
Not currently
8:43 AM
@LoganM you're falling far behind though
There're folks with 15 hats already.
That's not the point.
Keep a low profile and get all the easy ones at the end.
I guess
The winner is the one with the most hats on January 5th, not December 16th.
@LoganM doesn't seem to be a mod hat though... Time to quit? :P
8:47 AM
6 hours ago, by Mysticial
You've been had.
@MadaraUchiha Yeah, it's annoying, but I'm finding it useful in other ways.
9:08 AM
What if i just put the hat on my head in my avatar :P
noone will know >:D
1 hour later…
10:16 AM
Q: is nami and robin are virgin in one piece?

somethinghi guys i just want to know that is nami and robin are virgin in one piece. hi guys i just want to know that is nami and robin are virgin in one piece. hi guys i just want to know that is nami and robin are virgin in one piece. hi guys i just want to know that is nami and robin are virgin in one...

@Sakamoto .........
Did you mean loli?
I don't actually know what to do here.
Other than downvote (which I'm out of)
I downvoted
I have won a secret hat
10:19 AM
I mean, I feel like we should close it, but it's technically a fine question, even if we're sure we know the answer.
@LoganM I say let it get downvoted into oblivion
sounds fair.
@LoganM No hats yet?
ah, never mind
User rolled back your edit.
11 so far
I guess mods have a procedure for dealing with that. Something like "send a warning and if they keep rolling back suspend"
10 revisions in 8 minutes. That may be a record of some kind.
And now I have to leave
10:26 AM
How long did you lock it for?
I would think a 1 hour lock would be enough, but he used the content dispute lock rather than the temporary one.
No, it was just one hour
you guys can't see the "Unlocks in 58 minutes" text?
mods only
I thought "Content dispute" locks are permanent?
10:27 AM
can anyone recommend a session switcher addon for Firefox?
Isn't there a separate one for temporary locks?
@LoganM Don't seem to be
Maybe I'm misremembering
@LoganM no, I just get a dropdown menu
I guess I can check myself since I'm blue
10:28 AM
for the time
like when you go to private browsing mode but multiple times and retain the cookies for each "session"
Yeah of the three that's the best fit.
Well, he's not blocked from asking
since he asked a dupe for that one
and now I really need to leave
Q: Are Nami and Robin virgin?

somethingI just want to know that if Nami and Robin from One Piece are virgin.

10:33 AM
@Sakamoto he really wants to know
Based Oded
Had that question closed in under a minute
^what a great username
Q: Is one piece specify that how to insert haki in weapons

Mohit Jaini wonder how Amazon Lily people use haki with weapons...is their any specific way to insert haki in weapons or it's like that if user knows haki then he can use haki with weapons.

10:49 AM
how is everyone today :)
I am up at 6 am, so pretty sleepy.
somebody just asked me a whole bunch of words I don't know and I said I'm just working here like 3 days as an administrator
so many names of unfamiliar systems
@Hakase Did you get my ping in the other room?
huh? no
in The loli room, 59 mins ago, by Logan M
@Mysticial @Eric @Memor-X @ton @Yuuki @Frost @Hak @anyone else I forgot I suggest if we want to continue our previous discussion, we do it here to avoid crowding the main room. I've used my mod abilities to move the conversation here and clean it up a bit.
Nevermind -.-
10:57 AM
why is that room not visible from site rooms list?
Not sure, but it should be.
I still see it there, though I do have it favorited and I'm in the room.
I actually see it even private browsing
@Hakase It's there, second one
it wasn't there before
only 6 rooms
your chat is borked
11:00 AM
did you rename it recently or something?
ah well
in The loli room, 2 hours ago, by Feeds
Logan M has undeleted this room.
that explains it
Yes, but that only explains it if you were looking at a 2-hour-old list of rooms.
so you just kept talking in a locked room or something?
I moved the messages there from here
11:02 AM
its like my tomato room
I didn't see that room the last I checked, and that was maybe two days ago
I think we should continue the conversation there, to avoid crowding this room
about what?
lolis, ofc
11:05 AM
wao moar kancolle so gud
2 hours later…
12:52 PM
I have a feeling Sora no Method's ending is going to be really sad.
But regardless of what happens in the last few episodes, Noel alone was worth watching the show for. And the rest of it got a lot better from the start.
so full of food @_@
Is Sora no Method worth watching?
I watched like 2-3 episodes, then stall it
Gets way better later, at least in my opinion
Btw, I got a lamp on a leg kind of "hat", though I don't know how to wear it
Once Yuzuki stops being annoying and Noel starts to play a bigger role, it's better. There's still some meh dorama with Shione, but I'm more okay with it than I am with Yuzuki.
1:01 PM
I'll probably check that out later
In my book, the first 4 or 5 episodes were pretty bad (below average), but the most recent ones are comparable to some of the best shows this season. But I have weird tastes so take that with a grain of salt.
1 hour later…
2:19 PM
@LoganM uhh.. does that room still exist? cuz I get a 404 when I click on the quote
@ton.yeung Deleted.
mods from other sites were annoyed and I didn't have the patience to explain to them.
We can just have any future discussion here instead.
@LoganM What golden badge are you planning on getting?
@MadaraUchiha Several options. Possibly copy editor here. I'm close to a Famous Question also, so I'll wait and see on that. Or I can get Electorate on some other site.
@LoganM You're pretty close to CE here actually.
I only see 212 edits which count for that.
So it would be a lot of editing, but there's a lot to be done.
2:45 PM
@ToshinouKyouko onaka ippai sugiru ka?
@LoganM wait who was annoyed? where? I didn't see anything in the room about that
was it just the room title in the sidebar?
or were they afraid of nsfw content?
@Hakase A little of both
Remember that loli is considered nsfw and on some cases, illegal on most countries.
Normal people don't handle it well :P
loli illegal?
right… "normal people"
@Hakase Yes, posting sexually provocative images of young girls (even if drawn) is illegal in many places.
2:48 PM
well, if you put it like that, then certainly
While "sexually provocative" is up to debate, it's very subjective and I'm guessing they'd rather be safe and not sorry.
illegality is in the eyes of the beholder
but sure, whatever
@Hakase It's not one or twice that I've seen images of young girls (which I know are young because I watched their shows) in their underwear or very skimpy swimsuit.
Is it draw or real?
drawn, in this room
2:51 PM
lol gotcha
time to return to base
2 hours later…
4:45 PM
think I figured out how to download from RSS feeds automatikuri
we'll see if it works
da royal weee
It is extremely easy, right?
utorrent + nyaa
ye ye
e z p z
I just use the backyard feature to cast flag at the speed of light
on StackOverflow
Whew. I didn't earn any hats overnight.
