I guess you're just bored :)
All the good ones are gone... So hey @Janos.

I'm coding, how can I be bored?
I stand corrected ^
> You've earned the "Good Question" badge (Question score of 25 or more) for "Down with FizzBuzz... LOL"
I was actually contemplating all last week about posting a fizzbuzz in lolcode
translate: 안녕하세요
@Mat'sMug - the lolcode question got me thinking (some more), and it appears that clearly you do not need to be an expert, or even familiar with a language in order to review it. Is this something that can be leveraged in some way?
4:16 PM
@rolfl we could try to get monkeys to review code. Oh wait, it's already happening
waht do u meanz?
just that, can we encourage more people to review languages they are not familiar with?
People are 'boxed' in to their corners.... why?
that question and its answers should be the ultimate proof!

4:20 PM
@rolfl I think if there was some way that general programming principles for similar programming languages could be put together in one place... for example Java, C#, C++... it would allow people who know less about one and more about the other to venture into unknown territory
Or JavaScript, PHP... etc.
Reviewing some other languages is hard ()
@Phrancis Thing is, they're actually pretty damn different when you get into a lot of the details
there are a lot of "No Action Necessary" going on here...... codereview.stackexchange.com/review/first-posts/history
4:27 PM
the other day I reviewed C# code by accident, because it looked like Java
But there has to be some unifying principles at least that apply to multiple languages, right?
can we suggest a review of a reviewer?
Q: Does this code avoid SQL injection?

TomI have the following PHP code but I'm unsure, based on the many things I've read, whether or not this is actually safe from an SQL injection attack. $mysqli = new mysqli("address.address.address", "username", "password", "database"); /* check connection */ if (mysqli_connect_errno()) { prin...

TimoI'll soon begin teaching a beginners' programming class.

@Phrancis Ill answer
Go for it
@Donald.McLean IKR, I have never seen a message like it!
@Phrancis I answered but im a bit drunk.. :/
@CodeX it looks good, I'll fix your grammatical errors ;)
@Phrancis Thanks lol

> Not sure if this is appropriate. I think it's funny though and may attract some attention.
Well we don't really need more attention on that question.
and it makes a "PLZ REVIEW MAH CODEZ" title... rejecting
4:54 PM
> Titles akin to "Please review my code" shouldn't be encouraged, sorry - would have been nice *for this post though, but given the current exposure...*
@Mat'sMug Not a fan of it.
^^ agreed
@Mat'sMug That code reads like a book... I like it
@CodeX I'll take whatever hard cider you have on tap.
@CodeX Humm are you sure you are reading books ? :P ;)
4:56 PM
@Donald.McLean Haha, its beer day..
@CodeX I'll second that.
@Marc-Andre I only read books when drunk..
@CodeX Sorry, but I don't like beer.
@Donald.McLean A nice scrumpy coming up!

We need a hashtag on twitter... How about #codereview ? or #2ndmonitor ?
I used #CodeReview earlier.
@cimmanon it seems like a bit of a grey area... some code obviously can be reviewed, but design concerns seem off-topic...
#codereview for the more serious things and #2ndmonitor for... the rest :)

Q: Can I make these loops more efficient?

user759I wanted to write a function to generate only unpronounceable words. I realised afterwards that the same thing could probably be achieved by just taking out the vowels. Regardless, I feel that there is probably a better way to iterate through the syllable checking. function unpronouncable(length...

Are there really 10 more languages where someone on CR has not made a FizzBuzz in??
IDK, but then after that we can potentially close all the new ones as dupes :)

hey, I still have stars.
I ran out of stars at 10:30 this morning...

Huh, I am close to a popular question badge (my first) on codereview.stackexchange.com/q/61248/31503
^^ "stolen" question!
too bad Santa can't come twice ;)
I'm not expecting votes (already @max today).
6:11 PM
that was a ho-ho-ho-napalm for me, who knows when
@rolfl not so good timing to post that now ;)
But, it has 962 967 views.
and there is a badge at 1000 ;-)
I'm at +185 for the day!
so impatient, you are
(+130 out of )
I'm still waiting for 4 generous souls to stumble on my popular question.
6:13 PM
Hmm, I'm at +133 for today... expected to be higher.
which one, I'm a generous soul
I'm writing answers for posting tomorrow
So, I'm a little jealous of that shiny silver badge Mug got today.
what silver did he get?
6:13 PM
@janos and with that star I am out of ammo
+25 on a question => [badge:good-question]
What is it, good questin?
That's the one.
@Malachi ... that means that you already have tried to apply another one...
@SimonAndréForsberg I was going to keep the star curtain going
How many stars do we have per day?
6:15 PM
@RubberDuck oh yes that's quite precious
@SimonAndréForsberg the Star Curtain I am talking about -> chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/8595/conversation/star-curtain
@janos Yeah. I'm gonna be waiting for a while I think.
@Malachi I tried to stretch the curtain as far as I could
Thanks @Santa. 3 more.

something that made more sense
back when I posted there, ages ago
If you format it as Tags as [Tags] it formats it nicely too.
@rolfl actually, I had not. Good advice
@janos I find that the biggest problem about using it is that NO ONE IS VOTING ON IT! (i.e. a bit the same problem as CR has)

@SimonAndréForsberg how big is your audience?
@janos around 5 people :)
15 if you exclude @Simon ;-)

6:49 PM
Why so surprised?
about a month. it works well. there is a small issue with spam users continously registring though
^^ not a problem in a workplace.

Q: A tuple unpacking macro that approximates python elegance

@janos Would like one too, but didn't find anything near the quality of Stack Exchange
@Marc-Andre yeah it's far from it, I miss a lot of things, but it's good enough, and much better than nothing
@janos which one are you using ?
but I'll try to find better
something actively developed would be better
And I guess it's hard to find. Atlassian a Q&A platform but I guess you want something open-source or "free".
7:11 PM
@Marc-Andre Atlassian has something?
we're already considering JIRA + Confluence
so if they have something similar, that can be interesting
yeah, lookin'...
"Confluence Questions"
thanks @Marc-Andre, I think we have a winner
I've always been a fan of Atlassian products, and got often rejected for budgetary reasons
but this time it might actually work
Nice! Glad for you! I will wait to see if you find good/usefull before proposing it at my work!
We hacked one together on google apps. It's not very good, but does ok for our couple hundred users.
Sure ain't pretty though.

@RubberDuck yeah, but apparently there's a limit
@janos Yeah well I'm an avid Stack Exchange and we have a lot of trouble to communicate our expertise. I think it would help to have a "bank" of domain knowledge.
it ain't over yet, but it does look like that an SE clone can beat down the SharePoint lovers
I'm out all. Going for a ride. Bbl when I run our upgrades.
@Marc-Andre Totally. Ping me after a few weeks and I can tell you if I could sell the idea
enjoy the ride!

it seems like a better fit for programmers, it's about a concept or argument about Magic Numbers, and not about a review of real code.
no offense @janos
@Malachi none taken
@Malachi I don't consider it off-topic for CR
In fact, I think it is an excellent CR question.
Simple, but oh yet so common problem
I understand it's a tough call. I was surprised it got so many votes, probably because it's a common "problem"
the downvotes are not surprising

good candidate for a Famous Question

except in fizzbuzz HUNDRED would be a terrible name for the upper limit
lol yeah
it should be a super user question, and this answer would get upvoted! codereview.stackexchange.com/a/55895/18427 LOL
8:27 PM
yeah, I upvoted that one
it's really about SONAR bugging you about that number and that answer gives you the solution
in the end, I gave it a name, because it can be useful to find the occurrences where we use it, and git grep HUNDRED gives more useful results than git grep 100
> Found 100 instances of 100
@Mat'sMug in part. It's not some hard and fast arbitrary secret formula or rule I'm hiding. I just don't want to advocate turning it on if only 5 of you want it.
