Nice try
wow, grace showed up just to rub that in. you should be honored @Wipqozn
Q: How should I tag Splinter Cell Chaos Theory?

fredleysplinter-cell-chaos-theory exceeds the maximum tag length, what should I call the tag instead?

How do we feel about dropping a space? i.e. .
@agent86 Hey, it may have failed to get him a badge, but it sure got me a badge. ♪
It delivers the best google juice by a power of 10 compared to either SC Chaos Theory or Splinter Cell CT
@LessPopMoreFizz I don't see why not. It gets the full title in and is recognizable.
12:08 AM
@Tristan I worry about the precedent it creates, among other things.
The precedent issue is, "What about the original game?"
@LessPopMoreFizz Oh. =\
@GraceNote I'm not sure that the relationship with is particularly relevant here neccesarily. But I don't really like the idea that we're going to find outselves mangling titles by dropping spaces as a habit. Because while this is fairly coherent, a tag like or is not.
@LessPop_MoreFizz I'm just thinking with regards to consistency in the long run, but I admit that it's a more minor concern in this case.
@GraceNote but, yeah, The Mighty and All Knowing All Seeing All Searching Google seems to provide much better results for a no-space search than anything acronymized.
12:14 AM
@GraceNote You're welcome!
Actually, searching sans space provides 5x the results that searching for "Splinter Cell Chaos Theory" properly does. Presumably thanks to URL structures.
12:26 AM
Weeeew! SW:TOR is downloading so much faster now.
Hey All!
@RedriderX hullo
@Tristan So your playing it too?
@RedriderX Trying to. It's been downloading the latest version for 2 days now.
At 20kb/s
12:28 AM
@Tristan Oh, that could be a bad sign for a MMO
@Tristan ouch
It's not the games fault. It's my internet.
@Tristan That could be a really bad sign.
I'm running on hotel wifi with a max of 512kb/s. But, i called and complained, so they upped me to 3mb/s
@Tristan Hotel...? On vacation?
12:29 AM
I have not looked into it at all, but is there offline capabilities for SW:TOR?
@RedriderX Er, it's an MMO
@RedriderX I highly doubt it.
@Wipqozn I wish. Got out of the army, was ready to go home so I vacated my apartment. Found out there was an issue with my divorce, so, I've been staying in a hotel for a month trying to sort it.
@Tristan That... sucks, man. I'm sorry to hear that. Hope everything's sorted soon.
@FallenAngelEyes Should be sorted next week. =D
12:31 AM
@Tristan Oh, it would appear you're older than I thought... I thought you were 16.
Then I can get back to my 15meg internets.
@Tristan Ouch, sounds like there are more problems then internet. Hope it gets better soon.
@Wipqozn I'm 25. Albeit an immature 25, but 25 nonetheless.
@Wipqozn The avatar does make for a much younger appearance.
@Wipqozn Aren't the majority of people here 16?
@RedriderX Meh, I've been divorced for two years now. It just wasn't an issue because I wasn't trying to leave the state.
12:32 AM
@Tristan Hotel internets are the worst thing.
@RedriderX I know @RonanForman is.
@Tristan Oh, good, tell @IanPugsley that so he can start calling you a hag instead of me.
@Tristan That said, I've found they're often fine for online gaming, the issue is generally one of bandwidth, not latency.
@ArdaXi was up until 2 weeks ago.
@GraceNote Why would he call me a hag?
12:32 AM
@Wipqozn And... @RonanForman just left.
@Tristan I'm older than him, he takes advantage of this fact. However, you're older than me, so rather than just do it to you, I'll just pass the buck.
@LessPopMoreFizz yeah, I figure it'll run well enough now that I've gotten my bandwidth improved.
@GraceNote Oh, so you're 24. Nifty.
@GraceNote How old is he? I thought he was older than me, what with his talk of marriage, and board game nights, and "shows" and stuff.
@Tristan According to his profile, 23.
Also, @RedriderX, most people here are between 18 - 26
12:34 AM
And... wait... what's wrong with my avatar? =(
@Wipqozn Way to leave me out in the cold as an old man.
@Tristan Just gives me the impression of someone really young.
@LessPop_MoreFizz That's why I said most
That's weird. My dwarves seem to be making booze out of thin air and storing it in thin air.
Also, out in the cold...? I thought all you old folks lived in FLorida.
@Wipqozn you should see my steam avatar. <.<
12:35 AM
@Wipqozn Oh, my guess was 0 - 25.
@Wipqozn Avatar does have a toque.
@RedriderX I think Ronan and I are the only ones.
@Ullallulloo I believe so as well. Arda was, but then he evolved into a 17-year old.
@Wipqozn Should've pushed 'B', we're awesome.
@Ullallulloo Oh, well you young whipper-snappers carry on.
Also, @Ullallulloo, I always forget you're 16. I keep thinking you're in your early 20s.
12:38 AM
Although, then I could buy 'M'-rated games.
There. I changed my gravatar. Now I just gotta wait for it to register the change.
@Wipqozn Yeah, cuz I'm so mature 'n' stuff.
@Fredy31: I am not sure if you will be proud of me or hate me for this, but I just ganked a trooper in the Voss cantina purely because he had 'QC' in both his character and guild name.
@Wipqozn @Ullallulloo is very mature, sort-of.
@LessPop_MoreFizz My word. Someone dislikes Quebec.
12:40 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz Wow, no wonder you dissed Canadians that other day.
@Wipqozn no, I'm cool with Quebec, but I find the sort of overly proud quebecois who feel the need to attach 'qc' to everything they do and insult me in french to prove a point to be insufferable.
And my server in SWTOR is full of those.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Well, ya they can get like that.
@LessPop_MoreFizz What point are they trying to prove...? That they are bitter that French is no longer the most popular language in the world?
@Wipqozn When was it?
12:43 AM
It did rival English for a time, but.
And it is good.
@RedriderX Not sure on the exact time frame... looking into it now. but I knew it used to be.
@Wipqozn Wow, really.
@RavenDreamer Hail, Mighty Darth Shark.
Pictures coming eventually
So, is there a server that the guys/gals from GamingSE play SWTOR on?
lol My gravatar change kicked in.
12:44 AM
Me & LessPop are on Veela, an East coast PvP
Q: I'm seeing bright lights at the end of this tunnel in Seiklus, should I be worried?

RedriderXI have been making some progress in Seiklus, finding cool stuff, and generally having a good time. Then I check out the map(once I read the instructions to find the map button,) and find that there are a number of blinking lights on certain area blocks: They alternate between white and black, ...

We could have a Gaming.SE imperial agent squad!
@Tristan WOW. You're a bronie?
@RedriderX perhaps...
12:45 AM
I love My Little Pony <3
Although I can't decide if I prefer Rainbow Dash or Applejack
backs away uncomfortably
@Wipqozn The obvious answer is Fluttershy. Anything else is just ridiculous.
@ArdaXi Don't' back away, Run for your Life. Now.
I found out less than a month ago that Rainbow Dash is a girl.
12:47 AM
@Tristan This avatar obviously makes you look much more mature.
@Ullallulloo Thanks. That's what I was going for. lol
Honestly, it was this or Adventure Time.
@Tristan Yes you must be like, 40 know @Tristan.
I went with what I thought would get more lulz.
I'm really tempted to change my avatar to Applejack or Rainbow Dash now.
Perhaps an alot of Applejack or Rainbow Dash.
I need to watch more of the series. I've only watched half of season 1. My friend and I had a Marathon. I was waiting on him to finish it, but I think I'll just continue on without him.
@Wipqozn Is this something you never would have admitted had it not been for my avatar?
12:53 AM
Well, got to go, Have fun Bronies!
@Tristan Well, it's never really come up before.
Although I think I've said it before.
I'm curious; how old do you people think I am?
@John 32
@John 35?
@John 22
12:55 AM
@Tristan @Ullallulloo @Wipqozn Seriously?! Wow.... I guess I act more mature on the internet...
@John Nah. I just took a while guess.
@John 19?
@Wipqozn Warmer
@John 18?
@Wipqozn Ok, now you're just picking every number between 19 and 0.
12:56 AM
@John ...maybe
@John 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 33, 34
@Ullallulloo Way off.
@Ullallulloo Actually no. You aren't.
12:57 AM
@Ullallulloo Guess again.
@Ullallulloo psst, that means he's 18
@Wipqozn So I guessed.
@Ullallulloo @Wipqozn That took you guys way too long.....
Just remember: I'm older than @ArdaXi.
12:58 AM
@John Arda posted pictues though.
Defaul gravatars seem mature and refined.
@Ullallulloo Picture of me exist on the internet. @Wipqozn has even seen them. Because he's a stalker.
@Ullallulloo Oh thank you. I knew it would come in handy one day.
@John They aren't even on your G+ are they?
@Ullallulloo Nope.
Wait you've been stalking me on G+?
Fairly sure I'm not in your circles....
12:59 AM
@John Stalking is quite a bit of fun.
@John I'm 16, I can't sign up for G+.
@Ullallulloo Wait G+ has an age limit? What is it? >.> <.< >.>
@John 18
But Arda signed up somehow.
@Wipqozn True. Little Mr. Rooster Hat.
1:00 AM
but yeah, this is @Ullallulloo:
@Wipqozn Totally.
@Ullallulloo Google thinks I'm a year older than I am.
@John I love my rooster hat. It's so bad ass.
@Ullallulloo It's called lying.
@Ullallulloo It's not hard. Google practically makes you one if you ever try logging in.
@Wipqozn I'd post a real picture, but I don't have any pictures of me in a suit.
1:01 AM
@Wipqozn the place in my brain where the memory of this video is is now just one huge scar
@Ullallulloo I do! A whole video!
@John Friend wipqozn on facebook or somethign so I can find you.
Your name's too common
oh, Chuck, g2g
@Ullallulloo ah, yes, then @John and I can be Facebook friends.
and I can "like" his posts.
and make witty remarks.
@Wipqozn or what passes for witty with you.
not like my wit, which is awesomely wittastic
@agent86 My wit isn't just wittastic, it's wiptastic
1:20 AM
@Wipqozn touche
Woo! I now have wings.
oh god. I guess that had to happen at some point
@badp ?
@Tristan wings?
@murgatroid99 On Terraria.
1:28 AM
@Tristan I see. I wasn't sure if you meant your picture.
@RavenDreamer Gaming.SE Gank Squad, all specced into Fucking Operative Knife Spec (as it's known amongst ej folk)
@murgatroid99 Oh, no. Though, fluttershy has wings, too, I suppose.
Q: What should be my objectives when going to war with another civ?

LeonelIn Civ4, going to war with a more powerful army than your neighbors' was quite profitable. If a neighboring civ started to expand into your territory, you could go to war and raze their cities to free up some land and claim it later with a settler; or you could take over the city. In both cases, ...

Q: Left 4 dead 2 dedicated server - exec: couldn't exec server.cfg

PJKI've managed to get the L4D2 dedicated server running on Linux (vanilla Debian 6), it works, but there's one major fault. The server won't read any configuration files. It always ends up with Setting breakpad minidump AppID = 550 Looking up breakpad interfaces from steamclient Calling BreakpadM...

Q: Are there any mythical horses on GUN like on RDR:UN?

Jo'nathan TumminsIf you have seen the myth horses on red dead redemption undead nightmare.Tell me if there are any and if not at least post it so I would know.

@Lazers I think the third one needs a retag, but we don't have a tag for GUN.
Archer is awesome.
1:33 AM
@Tristan What is GUN
@LessPopMoreFizz It was one of the initial launch titles for the 360. Absolutely terrible western.
@LessPopMoreFizz From the OP: "If you don't know what the game GUN is,it is a old PS2 western game and came out way before red dead redemtion did so give me a post if you know anything about the question"
@Tristan Oh that. I thought it ws an acronym because allcaps
That said... voting to close as NARQ because... what.
@AshleyNunn with the assist!
@LessPopMoreFizz It's a real question. It just needs to be worded differently.
@Tristan Yessss!
1:35 AM
@Ull If you've seen my G+, you know exactly how to narrow down a search...... (Seriously, friend @Wipqozn?! You kidding me?)
@Tristan But you could ask that about any combo of game one + other game. It's not really a good question.
@Wip For that to happen, I'd have to actually post something.
Like, is there mushrooms in Skyward sword like there are in Super Mario 3d land?
@John My word sir. You make it sound as if friending me would be a bad idea,.
Q: How do I get noticed on this site?

Jo'nathan TumminsI am new to this site and not most people have not answering most of my questions.THEY DON'T EVEN GIVE ME A SINGLE FRIKIN' GOOD VOTE.Give me a good comment or tips on how to get noticed on this site. Thanks

1:36 AM
And things just got more fun for everyone!
@AshleyNunn Not sure if not constructive or off topic
@AshleyNunn Yeah, jeez. I facepalmed hard when I saw this. Let's hope we can instruct him and get him to become a productive member of the site soon. He's certainly got enthusiasm.
@AshleyNunn Well.. I guess that's true. still, I editted it, hoping it might be a more acceptable question.
@murgatroid99 It's a question for meta, imho
I voted off-topic, meta
But now it needs peer review. lol
1:38 AM
@agent86 Something like that - he's done this before, asking a lot of questions and complaining
@AshleyNunn I should invite him to chat. <.< He has the rep for it after all.
@Tristan Please please please say we have enough for three pairs of wings.
@John Not yet, but I'm working on it.
If you want to help, feel free. lol
@LessPop_MoreFizz this.
1:40 AM
Side note... Those horses in undead nightmare look awesome. No I kinda want to play it again.
@Tristan hopefully I can soon....
@John Do you want angel wings, or demon wings?
....weird, the Gaming logo keeps disappearing for me on the main page :(
@wip What would make it a good thing?
@Tristan Difference?
@John Appearance. Angel wings look like feathery wings, demon wings are webbed... Like a bat.
1:42 AM
Preferably angel, but as long as they fly, Idc.
@John I'll see what I can do.
lol, I'm now on youtube. (I'm not touching that video with a ten mile long pole.)
@Tristan Thanks.
@John You'd have me as a facebook friend?
Hmm. Is the rule on the Populist badge >10 or >=10?
Someone should upvote Nickt and help me find out:
A: How do I get a Magenta Lightsaber Crystal?

LessPop_MoreFizzStep One: Get the Pattern. This step is primarily for people who have Artificing as one of their crew skills. Others will need to find someone who can do the craft on commission for them (this is exceptionally difficult and will cost you a tidy sum, for reasons that will be detailed), or get an ...

1:52 AM
@John Do you have any Souls of Light?

Q: Is there a way to toggle whether or not specific DLC is enabled?

SternoI've got all of the Mass Effect 2 DLC installed and I want to play through the game again before Mass Effect 3 comes out, but I'd like to avoid certain DLC chunks. Is there any way to enable/disable specific packs of DLC for a given character? I'm not seeing any option for this in-game, nor do I ...

@LessPopMoreFizz I just noticed you linked all of that Jo'nathan guys questions in your comment. Nicely done.
@Tristan not all of them. Just the ones that have good answers.
@LessPopMoreFizz Still. Nicely done.
@LessPop_MoreFizz >10
Well, if the answer has 10, you need 21
So looks like you just need 1 more upvote.
Or, I suppose you could downvote Nick for teh badges!
1:58 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz I just removed my up vote from nicks questions
Did you get the badge?
@RavenDreamer Umm what. I have 25, nick has 11 now.
No badge yet.
Yeah, it's not instant
so, next time the servers update
or whatever happens behind thes cenes
@RavenDreamer Yeah, I know that. My point was that I didn't need an upvote regardless.
the question was merely one of whether my 25-10 lead was enough or whether it needed to be 25-11.
Not only is this Not An Answer, but it's also Community Wiki abuse. Twofer!
A: How do I stop my PS3 making so much noise?

Jo'nathan TumminsThat happened to me alot a year ago and what I did was smack the PS3 with my foot alot.One reason might be your TV.

so... I'm not big into racing games, but I picked up forza motorsport 3 for a song. They give me a choice of starting cars, and one of them is the subcompact honda I drive to work every day
Also, Mods, one of you really might want to look into doing something about this user. :/
2:02 AM
they even have it in the same color as mine
@agent86 Clearly you should use nothing but said subcompact.
now I'm looking at car porn shots of my car.
this is weird
@LessPop_MoreFizz hm?
@RavenDreamer Take a look at his most recent question.
I think he's talking about Jo'nathan
2:04 AM
@RavenDreamer And the terrible one right before it.
the author of that post he linked
And his history of terrible questions.
And terrible answers.

Migrated to meta.
Give him whatfor!
@LessPop_MoreFizz Unfortunately "posts bad answers" isn't an actionable offense.
Well, he did get his wish. He's noticed!
2:07 AM
@RavenDreamer I am pretty sure repeatedly posts closeworthy questions is though.
@RavenDreamer Also, his most recent answer is not just a bad answer it is Not An Answer, and is community wiki abuse.
Hey, @agent86 - for my sanity, consider stopping using the "other" close reason to say, "should be a comment on X". If you've figured out which answer it was intended to comment on, we probably can too, and it shows up in the "other" column when it's really a pretty standard problem. ♪
@LessPop_MoreFizz Already handled.
@RavenDreamer I only use the other like that if I think it won't be obvious to someone that hasn't played the game in question.
@RavenDreamer sure, @badp said he liked that. I can stop doing it if it irritates you ;)
waves hand
2:12 AM
cries in the corner
see, I listened to badp again. and he was wrong. I will stop listening to him now, which will make him right again.

Jo'nathan TumminsI am new to this site and not most people have not answering most of my questions.THEY DON'T EVEN GIVE ME A SINGLE FRIKIN' GOOD VOTE.Give me a good comment or tips on how to get noticed on this site. Thanks

@agent86 it's not quite like that. I'm wrong because you listened.
It's the agent86 duality principle based on which my correctness is undeterminded until an observer decides whether or not you're listening to me.
If the observer bothered to decide that you listened to me or not, it's because he doesn't like what you did. So you were wrong. The rest is corollary.
Q: Will completing the Dark Brotherhood quest chain hinder any significant quests/events?

JamesI have an overall planned story for my character, part of which runs through the dark brotherhood. One of the first sets of contracts you do for them include killing one person that I know starts a small quest (very small in this case). I am wondering if I should be aware of any significant event...

2:19 AM
@badp eh, this is hurting my brain cells. I don't have many left, it being friday evening and all. I'll just stop doing the things you want me to do and do the things raven does, until someone gets mad at me for that, and then I'll switch to whatever comes next.
@agent86 Can I get mad immediately or would it be cheating?
Oh hey, it's Friday the 13th!
@LessPop_MoreFizz I'm so very, very proud of you
And that, out of context, looks very, VERY weird.
Personally I prefer clicking a couple extra time to dismiss "other" flags manually rather than looking at, say, this "not an answer" and wonder, what the hell is wrong here?
the shark can just pleasantly handle those flags on his own though.
Now to see if I lose my Populist badge when I take back my Accept.
because woot Populist Badge get.
2:24 AM
You won't
I got a populist badge when my very popular answer got un-selected, and another answer selected
and then later, my popular answer got re-accepted
So now I have a populist badge for a question I have the accepted answer on.
A: Can I permanently kill important people?

Raven DreamerImportant NPCs are invulnerable, like Oblivion. You might close off some smaller sidequests, but the folks necessary for the main story (for instance) have a tendency to be "incapacitated" from "killing" blows. So feel free to go nuts. Interestingly, NPC allies behave a little different, even...

@RavenDreamer Woo hoo.
I want a gold badge. =(
visit for 90 days
63 left!
I'm trying to. =P
2:29 AM
@Wipqozn correct
Halfway there for me
@badp Don't worry, I won't tell anyone you made a mistake. Last thing we want is people to start doubting our mods.
Don't doubt - mods make mistakes.
Simply ask yourself: what would agent86 do?
I want a gold badge for 2 consecutive years.
you know what's even better than a Gold Badge?
A blue diamond.
Your name turns blue in chat and everything!
2:31 AM
I'm 75% of the way there!
Imperial Agent is the ultimate ladies man. Space chicks banged: 8. Sham marriages ruined/noblemen cuckolded: 1. Sham Marriages engaged in: 1 Sham marriages consummated: 1.
@LessPopMoreFizz how many PvP maps are there?
@Wipqozn Thinking about running in the next elections?
@RavenDreamer Huttball, Alderaan, and the ship invasion.
@LessPop_MoreFizz I have yet to see any action. :( Dromund Kaas was lacking in that respect.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Haven't seen the ship invasion yet, then.
2:31 AM
But if you aren't on Veela or a handful of other servers, good luck getting anything but Huttball ever.
@badp Yes.
@LessPop_MoreFizz I'd rather Huttball than 3 hour queues, though.
I thought about running in the previous one, but I decided I wanted to wait until I become more active in meta.
Good. It's nice to have a nice and diverse candidate pool to humiliate pick from every now and then.
Is an i7 processor 8-core? O.o
2:32 AM
@RavenDreamer I've never waited more than 5 minutes.
@Tristan I know there's a 6-core i7
@LessPop_MoreFizz That's my point.
@RavenDreamer Also, I would happily wait for not-huttball.
@RavenDreamer I ask because in my device manager, when I click processor, it shows 8.
@Tristan What processor do you have? O.o
Also, 1.1 patch?
Next Tuesday.
@RavenDreamer i7 2670qm. Nevermind. It's a quad core. 8 threads.
2:35 AM
@badp That was my thinking.
@RavenDreamer That's the word on the street.
They are patching fast and furious.
So the launcher tells me.
@badp you might want to wait a little while. I'm debouncing your anger currently.
@agent86 It's okay.

Hmm... THis beer is flat. This is most disturbing.
2:55 AM
We use Bender from Futurama as a placeholder for "digital assistant" face in @oilrush_game It's a pity we can't use it for release version.
So, @mana, question: Are you still planning to watch Starcraft 2 tournaments?
@Wipqozn Yes, occasionally. Shoutcraft Invitational tomorrow!
@Mana oh my
I might watch it
My plan for the weekend is to work on an assignment, so I can make time to watch some games.
Interesting video, if any of you are bored.
@Tristan No. They're all in the chest.
