It makes me sad to see flag weight die like that.
Luckily, we have responsible people like @Mana who think before acting on flags!
Q: Where can I check which difficulty bracket I'm in?

JBeurerSupposedly DOTA 2 matchmaking is divided into brackets. I want to know which difficulty bracket I'm in. How can I find this information?

@ArdaXi Th...thank you? I'm trying to make sure that isn't snark.
Woo hoo, site first badge.
@Mana That depends, did you act on the flag?
3:04 AM
@ArdaXi I declined it
Well, then there was no justified snark.
@Mana Dun dun duuuuuuuuuuuuun!
@John Me too, but I had an accepted flag too.
50 accepted flags now!
@Ullallulloo How are you counting that?
3:06 AM
Here, listen to a Scottish man yelling
@RedriderX Play itttttt
@Mana 2 seconds in and I understand why you like it: drums.
@John Their drummer is amazing, mind you, but their vocalist is SO GOOD.
so much raw emotion.
Thank you talking candle.
3:10 AM
@GnomeSlice You're welcome.
@Ullallulloo That's a good way to count that.
Hey all :)
@GnomeSlice What? You disagree with my assessment of the playback?
@AshleyNunn Hello!
@Ullallulloo Is there a way to see how many of my posts have been marked as offensive?
@GnomeSlice All of them?
3:11 AM
I bet I have the most.
@GnomeSlice I would be shocked if it were otherwise ;)
You missed me getting suspended again today.
For a whole hour!
@GnomeSlice For about a minute.
Until someone undid it.
3:12 AM
@GnomeSlice This is my shocked face.
The second flag was validated so fast I didn't even get to see it.
@GnomeSlice I'm betting you don't
@Mana Who does?
@Mana No?
Or is that confidential?
@GnomeSlice LOL
3:13 AM
@John shrug?
Wait, how do you know about him?
laughs how did you get hour banned and unhour banned?
@John How do you not know about him?
@AshleyNunn I said something about japanese girls not having tits
@John I showed him Evan's profile a while back because I found him hilarious
3:14 AM
@GnomeSlice I do know about him, that's why I lol-ed, but I didn't think you would.
@John Have you ever spoken to me?
@GnomeSlice snorts
@Mana I should've known @Mana is the reason @GnomeSlice knows anything.
@GnomeSlice Yes... but still didn't think you would know about one of the most infamous users from MSO.

Q: How do I Mash Potatoes?

GnomeSliceWhenever I try to make mashed potatoes, I end up with an excruciatingly sore forehead and a huge mess. And that stuff takes FOREVER to get out of your hair. What am I doing wrong?

GEOCHET is also another one.
He got basically permabanned.
3:15 AM
@John Sounds familiar.
for years.
And when it expires, they ban him again. For more years.
Aug 22 '11 at 1:34, by John
@TimStone Gnome was flagged? What happens now?
Aug 22 '11 at 1:34, by GnomeSlice ツ
@John It's a contest, I think.
<3 chat transcripts.
@GnomeSlice Pity I will never have enough rep to see if that got any answers.
You are a very strange person sometimes @Gnomeslice
@GnomeSlice Contest between you and Evan Carrol?
3:16 AM
Aug 22 '11 at 1:34, by GnomeSlice ツ
I hope my actual meaning got across in that question.
Aug 22 '11 at 1:35, by GnomeSlice ツ
The idea was that I mash potatoes with my forehead.
@AshleyNunn God, you don't even know the half of it.
@AshleyNunn An everlasting truth.
I know this guy outside of the internet, remember.
@Mana That is the part that scares me
3:17 AM
@GnomeSlice HUR HUR HUR
@Mana Not really.
When is the last time we really spoke offline.
And by 'spoke' I don't mean 'you corrected me in physics class'.
@GnomeSlice Hey, hey. I retreated to the back row several times to talk with you.
I don't even remember correcting you about anything.
Is it bad that I'm starting to refer to SE people as people I know in real life? OtherFriend asks: "Do you know these people in real life?" And before I can think, I say yes.
Aug 22 '11 at 1:35, by World Engineer
it's not off topic technically
I hate that term. 'in real life'.
I prefer 'offline'.
I'm no less real than anyone else.
3:18 AM
@GnomeSlice The funny part about that one is that I flagged you.
@John You... you....
@GnomeSlice Offline just sound so...disconnected.
@GnomeSlice sheepish grin
3:19 AM
Aug 22 '11 at 1:41, by Mana ಠдಠ
17 mins ago, by GnomeSlice ツ
@John ಠ_ಠ
I get more strange looks because I refer to people by username in conversations - "Oh, this guy I know, @Gnomeslice, he linked me to this game", for example.
Aug 22 '11 at 1:42, by Mana ಠдಠ
@GnomeSlice wanted me to tell you guys that,
@AshleyNunn Well that's not a very unusual name believe it or not. For a while, I was known as homeslice. (Not by my own choosing, mind you)
Aug 22 '11 at 1:46, by John
@RavenDreamer Help! They want to make @GnomeSlice a mod!
@AshleyNunn Even moreso when referring to me. :P
3:20 AM
This is great.
@John You're telling me you didn't realize my pun until just now?
@GnomeSlice Hey you're quoting me!
@Ullallulloo My tongue usually just gets tangled up trying to say your username XD
Aug 22 '11 at 1:46, by World Engineer
I think it would be a much better trolling to get Gnome to demi-mod status
@GnomeSlice Oh no. I realized it a long time ago. There was just never an opportunity to say something about it.
Aug 22 '11 at 1:46, by Raven Dreamer
Very interesting concept.
Aug 22 '11 at 1:46, by Mana ಠдಠ
@Raven Isn't it great?!
3:21 AM
@AshleyNunn Ull - a - lul - loo (That is how you pronounce it, right @Ullallulloo?)
@GnomeSlice Interesting, definition: OH GOD OH GOD WE ARE GOING TO DIE
I'm assuming nobody is actually going back to the transcript to see the context of these.
@John Yeah, I know, I just struggle with that many l's
I'm rearranging everyone's posts.
@GnomeSlice I am.
3:22 AM
come to think of it I haven't seen you since high school @GnomeSlice
@Mana Lucky you.
@GnomeSlice The dates totally give that away.
@John Pretty much, but all the 'u's are like double 'o's.
Aug 22 '11 at 1:48, by John
Did someone hijack Gnomes account?
heck, we were even in the same town for the past few weeks.
3:22 AM
Aug 22 '11 at 1:49, by John
@KevinY Gnome called me a *****.
Aug 22 '11 at 1:49, by Raven Dreamer
Oh, so he's just trolling again?
@Mana WAT.
@GnomeSlice well not town
but Ottawa
pretty damn close to eachother

Aug 22 '11 at 2:02, by Tim Stone
Hooray! \o/
@GnomeSlice you might as well just post every single message from the beginning of the chat history while you're at it
No, it wouldn't be as funny as it is out of context.
Aug 22 '11 at 1:50, by John

Who upvoted that D:
Jul 14 '10 at 20:55, by Downvoter
So... what do you think about this new AWESOME site?
Jul 14 '10 at 21:06, by Oak
My avatar just floated down from the top
Jul 14 '10 at 21:08, by Downvoter
Yes, they do that
Jul 14 '10 at 21:08, by Downvoter
When you leave, they float downwards... continuing their journey
But yeah.
@GnomeSlice because someone flagged it and I got scared that I had somehow soiled the reputation of the site as a mod here
Q: Maxing out gear with maxed out smithing, enchanting and alchemy

CoomieI have level 100 smithing, enchanting and alchemy. I also have some nice enchanted gear, fortify smithing and alchemy. How high should I be able to get my fortified equipment? Currently I'm around 29% for alchemy and smithing. How high can I get fortify smithing and fortify enchanting potions...

Q: What are the highest damage output gears for dual wield daggers?

Watson ShumBeing playing mage for 2 weeks already, want to create a dual wield daggers thief/assassin character. Got me wondering do I have to level up smiting and enchanting in order to get the best gear available. Without exploiting, what are the highest damage output gears for dual wield daggers? The se...

Q: Serious lag issues with Deus Ex: Human Revolution

EntreriJust had a new custom rig built. It has dual Radeon 6970 2GB running in crossfire and AMD's FX-8150 CPU 8 core processer. I've got 8G of ram. This game is running horribly with this set up. I don't know what's wrong but unless I'm missing something I should be able to run this game maxed out wit...

I should probably stop now.

The Stack Exchange for games is now public http://gaming.stackexchange.com/
3:28 AM
@GnomeSlice Was it you, out of curiosity?
@Mana Who, me?
It probably was. But I can't tell because it was a flag on my own post.
Oh well.
You know how much I hate those jokes.
@GnomeSlice yeah
My father thought it was hysterical.
3:29 AM
you told me
When I explained it to him.
and I hate your dad all the more for it
Chat is making me wait like 15 second between messages now.
(although he sounds like a pretty cool guy besides that actually)
@Mana Oh, by the way, have you reinstalled Greed Corp yet?
3:30 AM
@GnomeSlice no, I haven't reinstalled any games
they're all gone
because I want to force myself to become a master at my profession
@Mana I hope you''re not a fisherman.
3:31 AM
I hate you.
I wanna be one of those programmer guys who people look up to and respect. So I wiped most of the distractions off my computer.
@Powerlord Don't even.
unfortunately this site and chat look like they're not going away anytime soon
so distracted I will remain
@Mana So...you're a mod on a gaming site, and you don't play video games?
@Ullallulloo I used to play video games!
but then I took an arrow to the OH GOD NO
3:34 AM
@GnomeSlice Wooooooooooah, that is not very nice.
Also, I noticed. Jesus, stop posting music.
"Michael posted a link on Dan's wall." "See 5 similar stories"
wow, the Touhou Facebook page is actually the worst thing. I think I like this game for all the wrong reasons because apparently I'm supposed to care about the characters in the game and not the awesome bullet hell gameplay.
and by care I mean post loads upon loads of fanart. Jesus.
Q: Why won't Learned Darian sell to me?

SternoI found Learned Darian in Darian's Sanctuary, but I did it after completely clearing the Rising Bridge map (directly to the east), including dueling and killing the mad battle beta there, as well as wiping every other enemy off that map. Darian refuses to sell to me, saying she needs the items f...

I just ejaculated music all over this guy's facebook.
3:49 AM
Alright, if I ask a question about an obscure game, and then 10 minutes later find out the answer is that I didn't click on a hard-to-find dialog option, am I better off just deleting my question, or answering it myself?
good timing lazers
@Sterno I've wondered the same thing for ages.
@Sterno Wait for a day then answer it yourself
I can do that. It'll give someone time to google it, find the answer I just posted on the Spiderweb Software forums (I'd asked there too), and then paste it back to me :P
I really doubt Angelina Jolie wants to be my friend on facebook.
@GnomeSlice Confirm anyways
4:03 AM
@GnomeSlice for the lulz
as you would put it.
I most certainly would not.
I was going to use it to write "hi cutie ;) i added you because i wanted to say TO STOP POSTING ALL THIS CRAP ON MY FRONT PAGE"
Well, I added it.
Also, lol @ Warren.
@GnomeSlice I think that's Warren actually
4:05 AM
gynocologist (freelance)
@GnomeSlice oh my god another one?
Do you know anything about these games? I haven't been keeping up with indie gaming
I know about crossfire, I have a version of it for xbox. The PC one looks a lot more fleshed out. Fractal looks amazing. Nuclear dawn looks fresh, but not something I'd play.
plus, chiptune.
@GnomeSlice chiptune? Which one has chiptunes?
4:09 AM
> BONUS: Pay more than the minimum price and get George & Jonathan's "Beautiful Lifestyle" funky chiptune album!
Wow! 9 upvotes in just under an hour! \o/
A: Lower new user restrictions to 6 rep

Bob CratchitI'm voting no. Maybe not on your site, but on some, people will upvote anything. Lowering it to one upvote would essentially get rid of it altogether IMHO. I agree it's not ideal, but it cases where the user needs it, I think it's perfectly fine to post in chat as you have done.

@GnomeSlice oh cool
My second paypal transfer didn't go through I think, but I really need to stop buying games...
@GnomeSlice and that's how suddenly you go poor
The version of Crossfire that I have got boring pretty quickly.
Hard to say about the PC one.
4:13 AM
god I hate having $200 of Christmas money(I don't actually hate it). It's so difficult to spend it.
@Mana I know that feeling.
I want to buy something nice that will help improve my productivity but it's so difficult to know what that is
DAMMIT. My latest paypal transfer won't go through by the time this bundle is over...
I avoided buying much during Steam's sale this year. But only because I already bought darn near everything I was remotely interested in previous to it being on sale :P
4:14 AM
Still can't believe Arkham City dropped so fast
Actually, it's free.
Anyone want to buy me the indieroyale bundle? :3
@GnomeSlice I'll be honest; I've never found anything like this useful at all for organizing things.
@Mana Me too...
My mother gets so angry when I don't use this stuff.
@GnomeSlice -1 for using a Mac in the demo screenshots.
that's because she doesn't understand that it all sucks
4:16 AM
That seems like it should be so helpful! But, it never really is.
like it's actually all terrible. Everybody tries to make one and a lot of it seems like it should help but it's always such a pain to actually keep on top of them
Especially when she wants you to use like 8 at once

@NickT I wouldn't consider Gnome to be a problem user.
Aug 22 '11 at 3:49, by Nick T
1) sarcasm, 2) he's probably drunk or something
4:17 AM
But yeah, I don't bother with calendars
Because I never remember to actually check the calendar.
Lol @ Gnome being drunk.
@GnomeSlice Same here.
@John Are you still reading the transcript?
Also, I don't drink.
you would need to integrate one into the very basis of the operating system itself to finally make an app that actually works and that I actually remember to use
@GnomeSlice Maybe.... >.>
@GnomeSlice I'd be worried if you did. That's part of what makes it so funny. xD
@Mana even like phone reminders
I just tune them out
4:18 AM
@Mana Then it would only work on that one device.
Unless you happen to use the same OS everywhere.
Or someone is good with compatibility.
When volume makes no difference at all.
@GnomeSlice My alarm clock scares me awake every time.
And half the house with me.
It's not a matter of being awake. I just... can't get up.
I'm chronically fatigued.
4:21 AM
@GnomeSlice A vibrating bed would make me more likely to stay in it...not get up.
@GnomeSlice weird
@GnomeSlice Is it related to not getting enough oxygen so you don't achieve deep enough sleep so you're more tired?
Oh how I wish this answer would get 2 more upvotes so I could get that hat!</subtle-hint>
A: How do I make Steam sort my games in alphabetical order?

JohnOver your games, there's a tiny word "Games" denoting the grid column. Click on it.

@John You kids and your hats
@OrigamiRobot Are you denouncing hat fanaticism?!?
@John A device has not been invented which can measure my hatred for hats
4:26 AM
@OrigamiRobot :( Is it that since you're a robot you can't feel the warmth of a hat?
@John Somewhat ironically, I would hate them less if they weren't temporary
@OrigamiRobot Same here.
@John psh, if I can't get my bounty hat, nobody gets hats
@agent86 :(
@OrigamiRobot Just for that, I'm forcing you to play Team Fortress 2.
4:35 AM
@Powerlord I love TF2. And it's much easier to amass wealth when you don't care about hats
Q: Identify 90's Game. Side-Scrolling, Dark Witch Character, Gothic, Medieval, Demo?

NHatAlright, so this is fairly vague which is why I'm having trouble. Still, it's been bothering me recently and I was wondering if anyone could give me a lead. I'm going to place this around mid 90's, though the game is probably from the early 90's. I remember getting my hands on these CD's that ha...

Am I the only person in the world who thinks sloths are horrifying?
@Powerlord I play TF2, but since I haven't paid, they won't let me get hats.
@OrigamiRobot for you
@IanPugsley NOOOOOOOOOOOO this is what I stumbled on
4:45 AM
@IanPugsley kill it KILL IT KILL IT WITH FIRE
@agent86 I believe you mean "BURNINATE IT".
@John this is acceptable.
4:48 AM
@IanPugsley I will barf on all of your belongings
@OrigamiRobot I will enact an elaborate plan that involves adopting a baby sloth
alright, last one (off for the night)
@IanPugsley That one looks kinda cute.
@John Are you kidding? It is an insectile looking demon monkey pig!
@IanPugsley <3
4:58 AM
@OrigamiRobot Y U NO LIEK SLOTHZ
Q: What is the current build of Deus Ex Human Revolution

EntreriI've googled it with several different wordings but I've yet to see it posted even on the manufactures site. I have Build 1.3.643.1 and am trying to see if I'm current.

@John Looking at pictures make me physically ill. Seeing them in motion is just too much
If someone doesn't like sloths or hats, then there's not really any hope for you.
@OrigamiRobot Luckily, they're sloths, they don't move much.
@OrigamiRobot Ool-a-loo-loo is right.
@Lazers I couldn't figure out what to close that as. Good thing others had voted before me. Upon reflection, their reason works.
@John Too localized
5:01 AM
@Ullallulloo Ugh and their arms are soooo long....bleeeggggrrrrrgggggghhhhhh
@YiJiang That's what I did.
These are scarier though
@OrigamiRobot I hate those.
They eat mah cats' food.
@Ullallulloo Cats are worse than anything!
And they don't play dead, they just hiss at you.
5:04 AM
@John It could be edited to "How to find the current version number"
@Lazers +1 for pro forma comments!
@John D:>
@YiJiang True... changing it too much though?
@John I thought you had a bunch of cats?
@Ullallulloo What gave you that idea?
5:05 AM
@John It's closed otherwise.
My only pet is my computer.
@John Nah, I think that would work
@Ullallulloo Where the fuck do you live?
@OrigamiRobot Central Illinois
@John Because DavidB's avatar is similar.

the official count is 40, but that includes strays that never come in the house.
@YiJiang Done.

Q: How can I find out what the current build of Deus Ex: Human Revolution is?

EntreriI've googled it with several different wordings but I've yet to see it posted even on the manufacturers site. I have Build 1.3.643.1 and am trying to see if I'm current. How can I find out what the current build of Deus Ex: Human Revolution is?

@OrigamiRobot What's the difference?
@Ullallulloo That's not even remotely close.
@Ullallulloo the aye-aye's demon hands
@OrigamiRobot That's creepy.
5:09 AM
@John They're green, nice people.
Who doesn't like cats?
@Ullallulloo People who are allergic to them.
@OrigamiRobot O_o
@John :(
> Besides being a general nuisance in villages, ancient Malagasy legend said the Aye-aye was a symbol of death.
no kidding
Well, good night everyone!
@John I would have nightmares about this if I ever had nightmares.
@John Sleepy well. Don't let the aye-ayes bite.

Q: What is the blue bubble around paladins?

dpatcheryIt only lasts until he attacks, so it doesn't appear to be an effective shield as I would first guess. I had 8-10 paladin guardians at the time, and only 1 ever had this happen. What is this shield/aura the paladin has around him? What does it do?

I was having a great run, then I used "the high priestess."
how can someone bring himself to hit 'replay' there
Haven't played the game so don't really feel with you, sorry
you don't happen to be an expert in mobile software architecture @badp? ;)
@Blem If what you require is buzzwords, perhaps! :P
The synergistic thing to do here is collate the monetization-friendly real-time centralized distributed autonomous collaboration system with the value-added scalable peer-to-peer augmented reality system designed for Apple iPad™, providing you maximum return on investment keeping your shareholders happy and the kitten fed. This kills the hamster.
@Blem A greeener thing you could do is assess the amount of CO2 emissions the hamster would have farted in the remainder of his lifetime and size the swarm size accordingly, creating as many CO2-wise clones of the dead hamster as possible. This can bring to interesting gamification avenues to engage the audience and funnel them into your content.
while it is all good i'm mainly focusing on android and the company that i'm writing my bachelor for do not need to sell the application, it is more of a additional service for there existing machines
Your value-adding platform could provide your free-to-play services alternative monetization streams through sale of virtual hats for their existing machines, for example. This increases retention.
they don't use live hamsters, only hamster cells

In short, add hats. You can't go wrong.
true, hats are always good, also considered bacon, but it is meant to be used in a lab environment so doubt it will be popular
