@Doorknob you spying on us?
(you can do that by following the transcripts.... ;-) )
 
@rolfl nah, I'm finally home and my computer remembered my tabs :P
 
OK, well, that sort of makes sense... welcome home!
 
Thanks :P I was stuck at various places in Colorado when my flight got cancelled for a few days
 
Oh, yuck. Skiing?
 
@Vogel612 What's off-topic about the logging question?
 
12:14 PM
@rolfl Indeed.
There was a mediocre amount of snow while there, and then a huge storm when trying to leave. :O
 
That's about typical. We still have snow here in Ontario, crazy.
I figured there would be more in the rockies though
 
There was enough for skiing though
 
I have been skiing at easter time in Banff/Lake Louise... plenty of snow then
 
A suggested edit on PPCG?! This is blasphemy!
...actually it's just formatting, ok, approve
 
@ChrisW - not StackOverflow, but Programmersrolfl 23 mins ago
@rolfl ^ I don't understand why. It's a specific programming problem/question. SO is for "a specific programming problem" and "a software algorithm".
 
12:29 PM
Programmers: http://programmers.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic - help, I don't know how to do it right
StackOverflow: http://stackoverflow.com/help/on-topic - help, I tried to do it right, but it's broken, how do I fix it
CodeReview: http://codereview.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic - now that I've done it, can it be made better

@rolfl That should really be pinned all over the three sites, and on MSO, so that people perhaps one day learn the differences of the sites.

I should update that.... hang on:
 
@rolfl where does PPCG fit in? "make it as bad as possible please"? :P
 
PCG: codegolf.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic how do I take this code and make it crap?
(it was too late to edit).
 
lol

(plz no star)
 
12:32 PM
too late
 
>:(
 
"now that I've done it, can it be made better worse"
 
@ChrisW it's three dashes :P
 
So, here I am, procrastinating a little bit.... because, at any moment, I could cross 20K, but, damnit, I have to go to work, so I will possibly miss it :(
 
@rolfl Thanks. Do people enforce/respect that on SO? (I stopped being regular on SO before Programmers.SE was introduced)
 
12:35 PM
@rolfl LMFTFY
 
@ChrisW I believe so. I imagine the question you recommended for SO will be closed PDQ (pretty damn quick). There is no 'error', no 'code', and no 'trace'.
I doubt it would be migrated to programmers though, SO tends to close a lot faster than they migrate
 
Someone please up-vote one of @rolfl's questions so that he gets exactly 20k
 
hehehe ;-)
Thanks Simanta !
 
I've upvoted all the questions already...
 
20,005 ;-) too bad !

12:38 PM
Santa un-upvotes
 
meanie!
 
congratulations
 
Thanks!
OK, 20K since I joined 145 days ago.
 
@rolfl if someone could un-accept one of your answers ...
 
@rolfl: Congrat :)
 
12:42 PM
Thanks @palacsint - but, now I really have to go to work
@All, palacsint is just 7-votes from 20K as well !
 
@rolfl Just trying to help, that's all :)
 
@palacsint - I tend not to see your answers unless they are on Java questions ...
 
@palacsint 20k exactly
 
Thanks santas :)
 
12:46 PM
@rolfl We have only 3 unanswered java questions unfortunately - or fortunately? :)
 
@Doorknob - now, CR has 4 20K users ....
Yeah, and simon's is a pain... but I am still part way through an answer on that.
 
serially downvotes @rolfl
:P
 
hehehe
 
@rolfl Good, make sure you don't lose the answer :)
 
I have the code pulled from GitHub. By the way, I have a lot of missing dependencies when I do.
 
12:49 PM
Still only 57 2ks as opposed to our 75? ;)
 
You claim they are in other repositiories, so I will dig them up.
@Doorknob - right now we have only two people between 10K and 20K
We have our problems ....
 
See, I think a stable growth of the 2k/3k range is better than a few high-repped users. (Of course, I may be a little biased ;) )

"There are local files that need to solved before commit." <- Well, I just did that Netbeans, why do you give me the message again?!
 
I think that once you solve the conflict, you should add the file to the git-index again, and then make a commit.
At least that's what I had to do.

ChrisWInspired by this off-topic question as an example, this is a follow-up question to this answer.

Hi @Mat'sMug
I think the bubble vs quick question is on-topic, even though it doesn't necessarily ask for a review specifically.
 
Trouble-shooting, debugging, or understanding code snippets
I think we're getting softer and softer. We're blurring the off-topic line with these questions remaining on.
The answer given, does answer the question... and it's nowhere near a code review answer.
we're shooting ourselves in the foot, just sayin'

Q: Why is my C# program slower than my Python program?

bobpalI made a program on python, and wanted it to be faster, so I wrote it on C#, because it's compiled. To my surprise, the python program is much faster. I guess there is something wrong with my C# code, but it is pretty simple and straightforward so I don't know. They are structured about the same ...

^^ yay many votes... and if new users take this as an indicator of what the site's all about, we have a problem.
 
isn't there a way to close topics but keep them for historical purposes?
 
2:08 PM
that's called a lock - moderators can do that.
 
oic
 
and there's a bunch of conditions to meet for a lock, not sure any of these two questions meet them
 
Up-votes to comment expected:
Code Review is about making any code better that is already doing what it is supposed to do. Putting any line on when code is "ok enough" to be on topic on CR would just create more confusion. Our requirement on CR is that it should be working. — Simon André Forsberg 38 secs ago
@Mat'sMug I think that we might shoot ourselves in the foot by closing too many off them. Some questions can be on-topic on both SO and CR, I think this one is one of them.
@Mat'sMug The answers to the six questions for the quick vs bubble would be: yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, although not explicitly said - I assume yes.
Where's @kleinfreund? I think I'm going to do some HTML layouting stuff quite soon.

A: Finding repeating numbers in an array

Shilanalmost easiest way! hashset returns false whenever a duplicate number is added to it private static void findDuplicateNumber() { Set<Integer> hashSet = new HashSet<Integer>(); for(int i=0; i < arr.length; i++){ boolean unique = hashSet.add(arr[i]); if(unique == false) ...

If anyone disagrees, I can unprotect it.
 
heh... I disagree... that answer is brilliant.
it is why the questions should not be protected.
new user, good answer, old question.
 
@rolfl Isn't it a bit of a duplicate answer to some of the other answers?
 
Doesn't protecting have to do with rep requirement to answer?
 
2:36 PM
Either way, I'm unprotecting
@skiwi Yes, on a protected question users with less than 10 reputation cannot answer.
 
And I've edited. :-P
 
@Jamal Everything's normal, then.
 
10 rep seems legit enoug
 
@SimonAndréForsberg Not a duplicate at all. The key to the new answer is to use the return-value of Set.add()....
 
But I think it's only worth protecting if a question has shown to attract nonsense answers
 
2:38 PM
@SimonAndréForsberg lol
 
none of the other answers recommend that.
 
@rolfl I see, +1 then
@skiwi True, at first I considered this a 'nonsense' answer in that it was likely a duplicate, but apparently it isn't as much of a duplicate as it at first appeared to be
The type must implement the inherited abstract method Comparator<...>.thenComparing(Function<? super ...,? extends U>)
 
Java 8?! Where?
 
^^ Why, Eclipse, why? This is Java 6 code!!
 
Maybe your project settings are not correct atm?
 
2:41 PM
Have you set the right Java compiler on the project build-path?
Also, FWIW, I tend to have multiple ecplise installs, etc. I have an eclipse installed specifically for Java8.
Not enough to just have different workspaces.
 
Is that really neccessary to avoid issues?
I haven't seen issues in Netbeans regarding that
 
@rolfl Ah, the build path was the problem.
 
@skiwi I do it for a number of reasons... one of them is that I have different plugins installed on different eclipses.
 
Plugins could lead to issues yea
 
I have the same workspace and the same Eclipse install.
 
2:43 PM
And, for different things, I have different plugins.
 
I discovered that it was really easy to copy plugins from one Eclipse install to another. File -> Import -> Install -> From Existing Installation
 
I tend to set up an eclipse for a purpose, and then never change it .... I hate upgrade bugs.
 
Helped me a lot when I installed Kepler two days ago.
 
Hmm I want Diablo III: Reaper of Souls expansion, but I bought the original game two weeks ago for 20 euro, and the expansion costs 30 euro... Dilemma.
 
For example, I have an eclipse specifically for CR.
2
Another one for JDOM.
 
2:45 PM
And one Eclipse specifically for work I guess?
 
Actually, I have four active ones at work.
(a CR one too).
 
Now I feel amateuristic with just having one install of my favorite IDE.
 
@skiwi I bought the original game when it was new, I have currently no plans to buy the expansion. My suggestion: Play the game until you're tired of it, then you don't want to buy the expansion any more :)
 
Watson has some custom plugins that do not share very well... and is on an old eclipse version.
 
@skiwi Is it even possible to have multiple NetBeans installs?
 
2:46 PM
I have a Java8, a CR, and a couple of others.
 
Yeah @SimonAndréForsberg
I have a Netbeans 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.4 Beta, 8.0 Beta and 8.0 install, because I am too lazy to uninstall the old ones.
And they all still run
 
I have had a mostly dormant twitter account for years... I think I am going to start tweeting my RUTR attempts..... (Roll Up The Rim): Please play again
Much better.
 
The problem is that I cannot set myself to pay more for an expansion than for the base game...
 
@skiwi - no doubt. The only games I have ever bought for myself are 'Civilization II', 'Civilization II for linux', 'Civilization III', 'Civilization IV' and I heard that Civilization V was crap, so I don't have it ..... spot a trend?
 
The spotted trend is that the version numbers are rising...

I'm sorry, but I really don't see what you mean there :p

Just what if there was a direct migration route to CR? Migration wouldn't require a custom flag anymore, and this wouldn't be happening. Is it time for CR's graduation? — retailcoder 7 secs ago

Q: How do I avoid deep nesting in this Python code?

ThorUnlike Perl, you can't to my knowledge match a regular expression inside an if statement in Python and assign the result to a varaible at the same moment.

3:07 PM
@Morwenn have I ever introduced you to 'Die Antwoord'?
 
@rolfl I don't think so, but I already know some of their songs.
 
(BTW, that was beautiful)
OK, well, that was not them.... ;-)
 
'Die Antwoord' sounds like broken Dutch
 
it is Afrikaans.
I have some songs that are interesting, but they are NSFW.... headphones required, etc.
 
I don't understand South-African English at all.
 
3:09 PM
@Morwenn - Die Antwoord is a mix of English and Afrikaans..... which is becoming more common now.
it is certianly not supposed to be considered to be English....
 
@rolfl The music I just shared is part of the soundtrack of The King and the Mockingbird. Probably the best French animated film of all times :)
 
@rolfl Well, I'm in a project room full of students.
 
Students are OK, bosses, not so much
@skiwi - when you have a moment: Die Antwoord 'channel' on youtube: youtube.com/watch?v=8Uee_mcxvrw&list=RDHCLzzU5ZU97m0
 
I'll listen it later
 
I do not listen to this music routinely.... BTW.... ;-) But, when I need a good laugh, I have been known to indulge ....

@Vogel612 that is what I figure. but still it is a good answer. it is a good fit for Code Review and not for SO
 
3:35 PM
i'd be in there too...
 
@Malachi I understand the comments about it being too late for the question to be migrated. And essentially, my answer also states that it should be migrated.

@Malachi No, definitely not. This is a very easy question compared to most CR.SE questions. If this question was migrated, it would become a poster for CR.SE, but it's atypical, and all the attention you'd get would be people looking for similar easy pickings and leaving the interesting ones untouched. Furthermore, having such atypical questions as your poster child would discourage the people who you really want, who are interested in the run-of-the-mill CR questions. — Gilles 45 secs ago
 
I saw that. looks like that person spends more time on Meta Arguing with people than actually helping the SO community though.
 
but he's got a point..

@Vogel612 yes and no
 
it's not like we want tons of these questions here...
But on the other hand it's not like these questions are actually off-topic

even though you are one??ß^^

the point is that the question is off-topic for stackoverflow and on topic for codereview

@Malachi In one of the comments on the MSO question
 
@Malachi what was the reasoning behind this: codereview.stackexchange.com/questions/201/…
This?
+1 for the difference and the FilterIterator. Only thing that could be improved is to only check the array values. No need to run over the whole array. — kaiser 15 hours ago
 
@rolfl there are 3 deleted answers on the question and people trying to edit other peoples answers by changing the code.
@rolfl I haven't been looking for questions to protect, I have just been doing it when it seems necessary
@rolfl no not that. I hadn't seen that actually
 
I am mostly just curious... I could not figure out why a comment from a 3-year memeber of CR caused the protect....

@SimonAndréForsberg It might be a good idea to involve the CR mods (assuming they are they active in CR's chat room) next time you find a good CR question on SO. CR mods have a direct line to SO mods, and can speed up such migrations considerably. — Yannis 2 hours ago
 
@StackExchange please tell him, he should definitely at least hash his passwords.
 
**Respecting your own community**
As members of a community, your first loyalty should be to that community. When evaluating a question, you shouldn’t be looking to push it off on some other site; instead, ask if it could be appropriate and on-topic for you, the experts who the author decided to ask. Be a bit jealous of your site – don’t blithely turn askers away simply because their question could be asked somewhere else. Don’t hit them over the head with your scope, help them tailor their question to fit into it – and if that means your site’s scope overlaps a bit with another site’s, so
 
@Jamal I think this is one that I brought up here in chat isn't it?

4:31 PM
I've reached out to the CMs numerous times already, and I've super-pinged the others in the mod room several time. Not much else I can do.
 
@Mat'sMug I think your answer was good, although I haven't worked with UnitOfWork or Repository pattern (at least not what I am aware of)
 
@Jamal we could vote them off the island and elect @Mat'sMug and @rolfl to Moderator Status
2
or even @200_success and @SimonAndréForsberg
 
We cannot elect anyone directly. SE still gets to decide.
 
@Malachi primarily opinion-based
 
@Jamal but we could start a revolt Discussion in Meta

And there must be clear word that one or more of the others will not continue. That's what I'm waiting for from someone.
 
@Malachi monkey blushes.
 
just don't elect me. I shoot to fast
seriously I need to get like 25 minutes of work in before lunch now....
 
If you'd like to start a Meta post on this, then that may be fine. However, you would only be able to bring up public information (such as last seen activity). I cannot disclose mod stats.

codesparkle: 830+
sepp2k: 650+
 
Where does that come from?
 
4:36 PM
just take the activity tab, select all and look at the number at the top of the list
 
lol
and I have stirred the Nest enough.
 
Meta activity is also another indication. Mods should be hanging around their Meta regularly.
 
@Malachi let's book it under disputed.
@Jamal looks similar:
Jamal: ~1k
codesparkle: 103
sepp2k: 78

@Vogel612 Not to mention I've been a mod for about five months, while they've been one for over a year.
 
Heh, looks like someone doesn't answer much around here.... codereview.stackexchange.com/users/128/…
 
@Jamal At least I've got an email from them last week which contains the following "I am in the process of selecting new temporary moderators and was wondering if you would like to be considered for the position." (I said no.)
 
@palacsint Yeah, I remember you telling me that you had your reasons for not taking the position.
 
@Jamal Yes, but that was a few years earlier, this was a second attempt last week.
 
Wut, our mods are pulling out?
 
4:47 PM
@Mat'sMug I have no idea. I have not heard from them lately, but a CM has told me that they're aware of this.
 
Are other communities more successful about that?
 
@haccks Thank you for reading CR's on-topic page and actually verifying that a question would be on-topic on the target site before suggesting migration or cross-posting, it's appreciated. — retailcoder 6 secs ago
no CR account
 
wow @Mat'sMug we make a great team ;)
 
:)
 
This is concerning me. One mod should not run a site, and if I end up making bad decisions (moderation-specific ones), no one will be there to stop me.

This comment really deserves more upvotes:
Code review isn't really for code that crashes... — Wooble 2 hours ago
 
@Simon already applied..
 
@Jamal you got the vaccum cleaner under control still?
@SimonAndréForsberg ditto
 
@Jamal we're still here... We can always report you to the SE-Team if you are becoming unresponsive ;))
 
@Mat'sMug Yes, but there should still be a safeguard (other mods). We can reverse each other's actions if needed.
 
@Jamal You got a chatroom full of people willing to stop you, although we cannot help you entirely with the secret stuff I guess.

Hey
 
Yeah, you can't. You can only observe from the outside, and even then, email is the only direct form of communication.
 
The importance of just a few friendly words:
@Simon i'll come soon after fixing it :-D — Amitesh 3 mins ago
 
S.OOS?S!TS
 
^^ WTF? o.O
 
@Mat'sMug interpunction might help.. also @Malachi really likes that acronym ;)
 
4:54 PM
@palacsint At least they asked someone... I wonder who else they asked? checks inbox
nope, not me.
 
@Vogel612 still clueless..
 
STAR. Out of stars? Shit! TS

oh, of course!
 
@Vogel612 @retailcoder; OK. I will take care of next time :) — haccks 58 secs ago
 
nice! one at a time guys, one at a time - we'll get there
 
4:57 PM
@Vogel612 we should ask for a downvote comment feature
 
@Malachi naaaah. that makes no sense..
you can always flag it, but if you don't need to, it's also not worth of a downvote.
 
3 people have no idea what code review is, they upvoted that guy saying let's send it to CR
 
@Malachi upvote the comments that say the opposite ;)
