blame badp for not finishing in time.
> Winners are LessPop_MoreFizz, fredley, and Ashley Nunn.
8:01 PM
something about "job" and "stuff" and "things"
@AshleyNunn welcome to the mod club
8:01 PM
> Winners are @AshleyNunn, @AshleyNunn, and @AshleyNunn.
@AshleyNunn You pulled the "I have a diamond already!" card and have reasonable rep on the site. Why are you surprised?
> 4,248 voters were eligible, 1,240 visited the site during the election, 1,263 visited the election page, and 619 voted
@AshleyNunn :D
8:01 PM
@Wipqozn just so you know, I voted for you <3
We're safe!
Still better then most voter turnouts right?
@StackExchange lol
Well, there's another year for everyone to de-owner @Wipqozn, I guess.
8:02 PM
Gratz to people
@TimStone data link?
I got last. =/
@FEichinger I don't knooooow
@Ullallulloo What were the orderings?
@Ullallulloo Not truuuuue!
8:03 PM
Curious where I placed.
@Sterno Nope.
I honestly was convinced there were people much more....I dont even know.
Can I run the numbers for myself somehow, so I can see for myself it is real?
@AshleyNunn You were the only choice of mine to get elected so I'm happy with it anyway
@RedRiderX awww <3
@RedRiderX same same
8:04 PM
> Download the election data and use OpenSTV for windows or mac to audit the results.
@Fluttershy You can remove mods.
That is the program you need to run the election
@Wipqozn But it's riskier.
Many disappoint
8:05 PM
@MadScientist How do I get the data?
@Wipqozn You were the fifth person eliminated
@AshleyNunn Check the elections page again
@TimStone Thank you.
@TimStone Oh wow. I was expecting to do better than that. Oh well, there's always next time!
8:06 PM
@TimStone Can you post the full order of eliminations/elections/stuff?

Also, fuck, I am sitting here shaking, in my pajamas, with my hair uncombed. What a loser :P
@StrixVaria @FEichinger was kind enough to do it for me. :P
@AshleyNunn but you're with cat, so much win~
@TimStone I was waiting for someone else to do it, but apparently that wasn't going to happen. :P
8:06 PM
#1: @LessPop_MoreFizz
#2: @fredley
#3: @AshleyNunn
#4: @StrixVaria
#5: @Frank
#6: @Wipqozn
#7: @shanodin
#8: @JasonBerkan
#9: @3ventic
#10: @Ullallulloo
@Ullallulloo :'(
@Ullallulloo I'm surprised
@Wipqozn The way that Meek STV works it's kind of hard to look at it as you not doing well, so I wouldn't read much into it.
@FEichinger Ah, okay, I think I get it.
Congratulations, @LessPop, @fredley, @AshleyNunn!
8:07 PM
@fredley Same
@FEichinger Sorry, lazy. :P
@TimStone Yeah, the voting order makes a huge difference.
My other choices didn't do as well :/
This election has 3 times the turnout of the previous one, I think
8:07 PM
@agent86 Thank you for the promised cat meme!
> 2,131 voters were eligible, 618 visited the site during the election, 301 visited the election page, and 176 voted
By the way: Thank you all for being a wonderful community over the past three years. You guys mean a lot to me.
@StrixVaria At this rate, you'll win next time though. I have to wait like 10 more years.
@FEichinger Oh. Nevermind.
shanodin, Jason Berkan, and fbueckert all got the same number of 1st place votes, it looks like.
8:08 PM
I was going by the 619 ballots
@Sterno The quote is from last time.
@fredley what's the first thing you'll do when you turn blue?
So when do we see diamonds?
> and 619 voted;
@FEichinger Stop confusing me. Confuse @badp instead.
8:08 PM
@Krazer Probably something amusing to badp
@fredley You're elected now, you can stop playing nice and start the mod abuse now ;-)
@Sterno @badp will be confused when he sees the results.
I don't see any flags processed by you, lazy new mods
@RedRiderX As soon as someone gets to pressing the appropriate buttons :)
yeah. I hear there are comments to clean. get on it.
8:09 PM
@Krazer Seriously though, I have no idea. Start churning through some sort of queue I imagine
@AshleyNunn Well you already have a diamond :P
@agent86 Gosh so pushy.
here's your mop, here's your broom. the vomit is that way -->
@agent86 Uncalled for.
@agent86 lots and lots of vomit
vomit for everybody
8:09 PM
@agent86 ... The stars list?
@agent86 Hey, I was a PSW, I've seen puke and worse before.
I need to eat
@jmfsg you may want to bring an extra bucket.
@AshleyNunn Politi-social Warzone?
@RedRiderX On my monitor it is currently pointing at the user list :P
@GraceNote Personal Support Worker
8:10 PM
@AshleyNunn Oh my.
Oh. I had faith in that guess, too.
@GraceNote Well "war" and "social" kinda fit somehow ...
> 1,240 visited the site during the election, 1,263 visited the election page
I mean, it could've been a worse guess!
How did 23 people not visit the site, but visited the election things.
8:11 PM
@Arperum Magic!
I am surprised by how weakly the primary voting corresponded to final results
@Arperum It's like the results were designed to confuse @badp
@Arperum Well, it was an inbox thing
Also magic
@Arperum If they had a link directly to the page, that might work?
@Arperum Witchcraft
8:12 PM
@Sterno yeah, @badp had great faith in the predictive capability of the primary; I was unconvinced. I won the "bet," I guess.
@GraceNote It is a cooler title, for sure
I guess that happens when you have a bajillion votes in the primary and 1 (to 3) in the real election
@AshleyNunn It should still count as a site visit, though ...
@Sterno this; also priority matters
8:12 PM
> You have fully used your vote allowance for today
@AshleyNunn I'd assume the election page is part of the site?
@FEichinger Yeah I dunno I was just random quessing
@Arperum 1240 visited the site during the election, and 1263 people visited the election page.
I knew I shouldn't have been showering so many stars when the results came in >.>
8:12 PM
I feel bad for @Wipqozn and myself.
@Arperum I think the election counter works similar to the date handling SE does, it never does exactly what you would expect ;-)
@TimStone Yes, now subtract the latter from the former.
@John must be thrilled though.
@Sterno I'm not really. In the primary you got to vote for everyone. In the final stage, you only got to vote for your favorites. So if a lot of people kind of like a candidate, he'll be disproportionately high in the primary.
@FEichinger Yes, that leaves 23 people visiting the page before the election started. :P
8:13 PM
@TimStone But how do you not visit the site when you visit a opage on said site?
@TimStone ... That's a twisted explanation.
Q: Is the number of users who visited the site during election wrong, or does "election" refer to the last phase where users vote?

kiamlalunoLooking at the page at http://drupal.stackexchange.com/election?cb=1, I read the following phrase: 712 voters were eligible, 0 visited the site during the election, 112 visited the election page, and 0 voted It is wrong, as there are at least two users who visited the election page, and the...

@StrixVaria I'm moreso surprised by the ones who did poorly in the primary but surprisingly well in the final election
I guess there's a growing minority that feels unrepresented!
@FEichinger I prefer "delightfully technical"
8:14 PM
> 712 voters were eligible, 0 visited the site during the election, 112 visited the election page, and 0 voted
@TimStone That ... just ... no.
@TimStone How did noone ever comment or answer that?
Q: what is the best maze in super sactum td

christofferwhat is the best maze in super sactum td. level name square. if someone like to upload image here, it will be cool. I tried different mazes but no succes.

I dunno, blame uhh... @GraceNote is the closest employee.
@TimStone I think you should blame @Wipqozn by default. Employee or not.
The only one of them I get is Shufflepuck Cantina.
8:16 PM
@Arperum Nah, I'll hold off on blaming him for today.
@TimStone You're such a sweetheart.
@Sterno I guess it's because there's no downvotes in the final. So people that lots of people think would be a terrible mod don't have a disadvantage there.
Also I won't tell anyone who I voted for, but if I voted for you and you didn't win you can still feel good that I voted for you nods
@TimStone I knew you voted for me!
Huh, awesome. All the people I voted for got elected :D
8:18 PM
@GnomeSlice Everyone voted for you.
I only voted for one winner, but as my third before it even mattered. I AM A FAILURE.
@Arperum Not me. I voted for SkyDrift.
@Coronus You had three votes.
@Sterno Heh same
> You have fully used your vote allowance for today
That said, I think all three will make awesome mods, so yay!
8:21 PM
I, too, have only voted for one of the winners.
I didn't vote.
@GnomeSlice Why do you hate freedom?
@GnomeSlice wat why
Yeah, I only voted for one winner too. BUT YOU'RE ALL WINNERS TO ME <3 ahem
8:22 PM
Fun fact. The number of people who voted in this election is equal to the total number of people who visited the last election page.
@StrixVaria I don't know. I didn't feel I was able to make a really informed decision.
So I just let you guys handle it.
I voted in the primaries.
@GnomeSlice over 600 people voted
Thanks all you guys who only voted for one winner for also voting for me (the best loser).
You're probably a good deal more informed than lots of those.
8:23 PM
@StrixVaria As a matter of fact, I did!
@Sterno I, too, only had one of my votes win. Miss @AshleyNunn!
@TimStone Well.. Damn
I'm sure you can all guess who my other two votes were.
8:24 PM
I basically just voted off cleanup activity and how well they could get along with users, especially new ones.
Also, if I did win, I was planning to make that "Epic Villian Laugh" guy my gravatar.
@Wipqozn <3
@GnomeSlice I voted for the people who are on board with letting the community decide where the site goes instead of the people who wanted to be put in charge of the community
@Wipqozn If I won, I was going to delete my account.
@AshleyNunn @LessPop_MoreFizz @fredley Congrats on your diamonds, guys. :)
8:25 PM
@AnnaLear Thanks!
@AnnaLear Thanks! :)
@StrixVaria I'm glad you didn't win then!
> You have fully used your vote allowance for today
You people need to learn how to ration your stars.
But it was for a special occasion!
8:26 PM
@Wipqozn Mods get unlimited stars right?
Quick someone start quoting The Fox to draw out more stars.
@fredley You need to perform a chat parent profile update.
Protip: That isn't how you do it.
Star something, wait for someone else to star, remove your star.
8:26 PM
@Undo eh?
@Undo I did that for him
@Undo oh
@fredley I'm not sure. Do some science and report back!
Hm, do I make pets or gaming my chat mod parent? :P
reloads page
8:26 PM
What does the Tortoise say?
Much better!
@Wipqozn kk, awaiting modernisation
Ahh @fredley is blue.
This is weird.
@AshleyNunn Pets. Of course.
@fredley Done.
8:27 PM
@James EEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhHHHHHHHH
I refuse to refresh
@Undo Hey that means I don't have to change anything
@fredley Nice blue name you got there.
Even though I voted for @fredley I will not let him be blue until I have to :)
8:27 PM
Stupid moving chat
@fredley you can now freeze the room and change the owners! Think of all the fun you'll have! :p
@OrigamiRobot well done
@LessPop_MoreFizz least active mod ever.
@AshleyNunn I changed it to gaming to update the TLbot. Now that I force-refreshed, you can change it back
8:28 PM
@StrixVaria They should remove him as mod and make @StrixVaria and I mods instead!
@ManishEarth you touched my blue! :P
I made it more blue
Congratulations Victors! You're Alive for Life! (Until next year when the rules change)
@Wipqozn As a consolation prize in the elections, I made you something.
user image
@GnomeSlice That's mean
8:29 PM
sorry about the background
@MBraedley Oh, no I meant so he can use it.
When you look at it that way I guess it is...
Q: 2014 Community Moderator Election Results

Grace NoteArqade's 4th moderator election has come to a close, the votes have been tallied, and the 3 new moderators are: Congratulations, you three! They'll be joining our existing crew shortly — please thank them for volunteering, and share your assistance and advice with them as they learn the ro...

@ManishEarth I can also change the tags!
@GnomeSlice I love you <3
room topic changed to The Bridge: General gaming chat room, wherein we breathe air and look for three courageous people to experience diamondification [+doge] [+fun] [jin-fanclub] [lazers] [murder] [the-event]
8:31 PM
@MBraedley It works both ways.
screentogif is awesome
@Wipqozn I did vote for you though.
room topic changed to The Bridge: General gaming chat room, wherein we breathe air and celebrate the diamondification of three suckers [+doge] [+fun] [jin-fanclub] [lazers] [murder] [the-event]
Man, I won't even lie, I'm disappointed I lost, but that gif totally makes up for it.
Q: How can I maximize my gold earnings for the short amount of time I get to play?

SlatzGI play GuildWars 2 every chance I get. Which, honestly, isn't that much. I play for no more than 2 hours at a time, no more than 3 times per week. I am the crafter for my family's guild, and I have a difficult time making some items for my family when my money gets low. What are some things I c...

8:34 PM
@Ullallulloo Yaaaay!
@MBraedley Thanks!
@MBraedley same
@RedRiderX Thanks!
Hm, I noticed after eliminating Ull, it gives more votes to LPMF even though he's already elected
Us Canadians need to stick together.
8:36 PM
It doesn't redistribute those votes?
I mean it was tough. The fourth person I would have voted for did get elected though, so there's that. (Obviously the other two I voted for got elected.)
@John It does
@ManishEarth scrolls down
ah, so it does
Here, I'll create a visualization
@John I believe it distributes to him first from the removal, then redistributes those for having already cleared.
8:38 PM
@GraceNote That does seem to be what this says
I only hit 2/3 on my votes.
Interesting how many iterations it takes, though
@Wipqozn That one might look a little better.
It's faster.
Huh, looking at the Election Summary, it seems as if Exhausted ought to have been the third mod.
Hmm, it looks like a number of people only selected one candidate. Exhausted wouldn't get dead votes on the second round otherwise.
8:40 PM
@Sconibulus Those are the votes that got thrown away by voting for unpopular or popular people, I believe.
@Ullallulloo If the ballot can't go to another candidate.
This looks like a game I would suck at
what with the programming style stuff
@MBraedley I noticed this as well
I wonder the effect campaigning played
@MBraedley Who voted only for me?
Glitchspace is a first person programming game that's centred around a visual programming mechanic.

Set in a cyberspace world, you are trying to find a place known as Glitchspace - a by-product of cyberspace and its various glitches. A world that would allow for infinite possibilities, and access across all systems in cyberspace through exploitation.

Through problem solving, it's up to you how you approach the in-game challenges; find glitches in the cyberspace world, and exploit them in various different ways, allowing for an emergent play experience.
8:42 PM
@Ullallulloo Did you? :P
@Ullallulloo I can't tell without looking at the raw ballots, and I can't (well, shouldn't) do that at work.
@StrixVaria I voted for three.
@Ullallulloo Exhausted votes after your elimination could've been from you being people's third choice
Tried to get that turtle.
I was not my own first vote. I wonder how many candidates that is true for.
8:43 PM
@Ullallulloo Actually, scratch that. Everyone who selected you as first selected at least one other candidate. Exhausted didn't increase after you were eliminated.
start speculating everybody
@OrigamiRobot I lost by more than 1 vote :(
8:44 PM
@Mana What is that
@GnomeSlice Wait, it's all about finding and exploiting bugs?
@John But it wouldn't know how much of the vote would have been needed for their first and second until it processed both of them too.
@StrixVaria Your first choice would have 1 less and you would have 1 more.
also congrats @LessPop_MoreFizz @fredley @AshleyNunn
@MBraedley :(
8:45 PM
@GnomeSlice Looks like awesome to me
@Mana :D
For a moment, I thought someone loved me.
@OrigamiRobot I lost by more than two votes :(
@GnomeSlice This intrigues me
@John Not 'bugs in the game', bugs in what the game presents as being the system.
I didn't explain that very well.
8:45 PM
@Mana Thank you :)
@StrixVaria How many did you lose by?
@GnomeSlice Right, yeah. Still an interesting concept
@OrigamiRobot Like 6ish I think.
Glitchspace Alpha 1.0 is officially launched!! Go download it at http://spacebudgie.com/games/glitchspace thank you all for the support so far!
Well that's just people being dumb.
8:46 PM
Oh, I just wanted to look at you.
HamStare @John
@John ಠ_ಠ
I feel so popular :D
@GnomeSlice I am kinda tempted.
HamBan @Wipqozn
May 30 '13 at 20:34, by Wipqozn
@OrigamiRobot: Rememebr that time you got suspended as Red Gir for bullying John?
@AshleyNunn You need to update your chat profile.
8:47 PM
@AshleyNunn Me too.
Congrats all the mods!
> Gamer, strange kid, kinda crude, loves everyone, Pets mod.
@AshleyNunn So was I, until I saw "Oculus Rift". I don't wanna be thinking about wanting that the whole time I play
How many sockpuppets do you now have @AshleyNunn?
@Undo Oh, I supposed I do :)
@KevinvanderVelden Enough to get the job done. :P
8:50 PM
Oh shit
Spacehop Chronicles is available now on bandcamp!
It's about the russian space dog
...sort of
Uh oh.
@GraceNote is cool and all, but I'm not sure why she needs explicit access since she's an employee.
Yay fredley won :D
Just trying to clean up. We still have 15 owners after that.
9 of which are mods.
8:54 PM
@StrixVaria sure, rationalize it all you want
If I still have it, you can take it - I know @badp gave it to me when I stopped being a lib mod
@StackExchange noooo! NOT GRACENOTE :-'(
@StrixVaria Why do the other mods need explicit access?
I am bound by an earlier agreement to not personally remove @Wipqozn.
@OrigamiRobot There was some thing that happened once where the room got disassociated with the site or something and the mods were temporarily powerless.
@StrixVaria EXcellent.
8:55 PM
They wanted to keep ownership in case that happened again, but it seems maybe unnecessary?
Also, I cleaned house last night, but @FAE added everyone back.
Hello, I'm just checking in from mobile, but congrats @Ashley and @Fredley and I thank you all for your trust and confidence in all of us. I shall commence betraying that trust and demonstrating how misplaced that confidence was with all swiftness.
I'm going to remove all the mods. If @badp doesn't like that he can add them back.
8:57 PM
@LessPop_MoreFizz As any good moderator should. Welcome to the blue.
that's alot of owners

I do'd it.

@OrigamiRobot I was wondering why my name wasn't italic this morning until I refreshed.
8:58 PM
But @FAE's treachery knows no bounds.
There, so you don't have to star each one.
Starbait. Declined.
Doesn't bother me.
I just didn't want the stars list to fill up with removals again
