@EBrown It's an app on Macs
Might only be for beta testers tho
 
Yeah, it's not on mine.
 
@syb0rg Yeah, just found it.
 
@Zak One bookmark to find them and in darkness bind them.
900 tabs were given to the humans. @skiwi took them all.
 
4:04 PM
@N3buchadnezzar Fortunately @skiwi could only take tabs that would originally belong to the Dutch.

@N3buchadnezzar Theoretical Star.
Zak tends to run out of stars.
So he puts theoretical stars instead.
 
Right. Thanks.
 
Now someone else can put a real star on it and save him.
@N3buchadnezzar 900 tabs, yea, just after clean-up maybe, he's usually over 1k.

@syb0rg How much is it, 200?
 
@syb0rg what's the cost?
 
You could probably get enough kind strangers on kickstarter.
 
$80
 
I'll put in half of that
 
4:17 PM
Wat
No
 
I'll pay $40 of that.
 
I couldn't ask you to do that
 
You're not asking, I'm telling.
You deserve the certificate :)

@syb0rg Ask @skiwi to donate some of his tabs. Should be worth a penny or two.

@N3buchadnezzar LOL
 
4:17 PM
@syb0rg He's going to charge 200% interest like Ralph Nickleby.
 
Zak
I'd gladly put in the other half
 
@Hosch250 You're not thinking big enough.
 
Star battle :p
 
Do you have a PayPal, @syb0rg?
 
Geez guys idk if I could accept that
 
4:18 PM
If so, drop me an e-mail with it at devnull@danpantry.me and we'll work something out
 
@DanPantry Yeah
 
think about it, the offer is there
 
@syb0rg If you don't, you'll never hear the end of it ^^

I mean if you have a full time job, 40$ is really nothing.
 
don't think you have to decide today, take a nap on it.
@N3buchadnezzar +1. $40 is a takeaway.
 
Zak
4:20 PM
Zak.Michael.Armstrong@Outlook.Com
There you go, sorted.
Don't you dare let a mere $80 stand in the way of an awesome achievement

I read Armstrong as Amazing and thought you accidentally @JeroenVannevel.
 
@DanPantry One of my email addresses is batman.
 
@DanPantry Sure that isn't your spam folder?
 
If I had the lawnmower, I could pick up $40 in a couple hours by mowing lawns. Not sure what the value is in England.
 
Alrighty, let's see if I can recover my Paypal stuff
 
4:20 PM
but yeah, really, $80 is nothing. I bought a 3DSXL at teh drop of the hat the other day for £200
 
@syb0rg congrats
 
Gah, out of stars. What is this friday?
 
@Hosch250 You wouldn't get very far mowing lawns in the UK because we have no lawns in the UK.
 
@DanPantry I've got one too.
 
$80 is two weeks of groceries for me lol
 
4:21 PM
Unless you feel like mowing concrete...
 
Yeah, just saying it isn't that much in the US.
 
@CaptainObvious no we don't write code for you
 
@syb0rg Same here! But it's still not much.
 
@syb0rg Obviously, we have very different rates.
 
Jul 10 at 19:27, by Mast
@DanPantry You need sun for a successful lawn, which is also fictional in the UK.
 
4:22 PM
$40 is about 2% of my monthly salary. Really. I won't notice it missing.
 
@Mast I live in the glorious US--land of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton :P
 
I spent more than that on a single meal in Dublin a few weeks ago.
 
@Hosch250 I know.
 
@DanPantry I hope it was worth it.
 
@Hosch250 Well, it was for me and a friend, but it was so good.
Turns out that there's a Thai restaurant in Dublin that makes really good curry
 
4:23 PM
@DanPantry Did you eat concrete or ask the waiter to mow your lawn?
 
Sounds like it was worth it. I've heard of meals that weren't worth what they cost.
 
@N3buchadnezzar I asked the lawn to mow my waiter.
 
Thats against the lawn.
@DanPantry If you ask for that in a Thai restaurant you might receive more than you asked for.
Sorry. I will stop.
 
I was actually in Phuket a few weeks ago, just two hours from Bangkok
 
4:26 PM
Man going through terminal sideways going to bangkok.
I hope that doesn't get flagged
 
Hope the damages he recieved was not terminal.
 
Dang, I spent my votes for the first time since somewhere around Christmas, or so.
@N3buchadnezzar TS.
 
We all actually need to vote a lot more.
 
Alright, got into Paypal
What am I sending you guys?
 
4:27 PM
@syb0rg Drop me your paypal e-mail at devnull@danpantry.me.
 
@EBrown Agreed. I have tried harder lately. However it takes time going through the questions I feel comfortable in.
 
We are 56th in the list for votes per user.
 
@EBrown I find I tend to downvote more than I do upvote. I only really vote on things Captain posts here
 
We have 4.54 votes per user.
 
@DanPantry @Zak I think I can just make a request from Paypal?
 
4:28 PM
@EBrown Yes, we have a lot of slackers.
 
@syb0rg that won't work because my paypal email is not the same as my professional email and I don't want to give out my paypal email here.
 
Everyone gets 40 votes per day. Use them.
14
 
Ah, gotcha
 
Mi Yodeya is at the top of the list with ~35 votes per user. That's still not a lot when you space it over time.
 
4:31 PM
Look
If you had
One shot
Or 40 votes
To upvote everything you ever wanted
In one moment
Would you capture it
Or just let it slip?
 
@DanPantry @Zak Sent
 
upvotes weak coffee is heavy i'm out of stars already code is spaghetti
 
If we compare by Votes Per User Per Day, we're 54th out of 71. That's still really bad.
And that's only comparing graduated main sites.
 
@syb0rg Sure, just need to set up my account.. also, from @EBrown so let's shhh
@EBrown So, how can we incentivise voting?
 
@DanPantry No idea, I think that's what we need to figure out here.
 
4:33 PM
@EBrown Maybe questions are harder to upvote here? It takes time to judge whether a question is good or spaghetti.
 
Zombies have been on the rise in the last couple months.
Our votes per user per day have gone down.
 
@N3buchadnezzar Let it slip, of course.
 
We're failing each other.
 
Thank you whoever pinned
 
On japanese exchange it is enough if they use Kanji.
On SO anything goes.

Our Votes Per User Per Day on April 10 was 0.002392, this morning it was 0.002245.

Yeah. I did not see the Github link. Forget my comment.
 
On the bright side, our Votes Per Entity have gone up in the same time period.
 
@EBrown We got a close reason for that.

@Mast Seems a bit harsh against a first timer.
Would you want that treatment at your first rodeo?
 
@N3buchadnezzar I read the rules before my first rodeo.
 
@syb0rg check your paypal, make sure you got the $40
 
@DanPantry Yup!
 
I'd upvote a lot more if I got this when I did.
 
Unless that's @Zak

1 vote left today. I guess I will leave that for someone special.
 
@N3buchadnezzar Save it for me, about to ask a question. ;)
 
4:49 PM
I could ask a question right now, but it still looks like crap.
I've only cast 23 votes in the past 23 hours...
 
@Mast How have you stars remaining? Do you not enjoy life?
 
@DanPantry Just be careful, we all know what happens when people start to ask pictures of your rubberducks
 
@N3buchadnezzar Can't have too many left though, you guys behave like it's Friday.
@skiwi What, they start rubbing them?
 
It feels like Friday after that internship.
 
@Mast No.. just no.....
This chatroom has seen enough stars for one day. What it needs is more flags

OK, I always forget you can do that with the console.
 
also don't forget tracert - I blame windows for picking such a bad name. It is traceroute on linux as it should be

Well the show aall is visible. Could not one just crawl that number?*
 
5:15 PM
You could, but I have no interest in that data.
It doesn't help the site health to know it.
 
The code you've posted doesn't actually run (I assume word() was supposed to be randomword()). There is a separate site for reviewing working code so asking for improvement would be off-topic here. However, I would spend some time getting to grips with Python in general before worrying about efficiency; a lot of the efficiency will come from just exploring the language. — roganjosh 15 secs ago

@EBrown You can also add: "What do you have to do to be the #1 Voter on all of CR? 17 per day. Not even half. Just do it. [*That* meme here]"
What does it take to make the front page of user voting? Not even 2 per day.
Wow. Not even 2 per day. That's depressing. We really are terrible at voting.
 
@Zak I used to consistently be the top voter at 30-40 votes/day.
 
With 1561 votes you even end up on the All-time list of voters, top page.
I'm 2nd this year, behind 200.
 
I want to say that's a humblebrag, but that's really not even a brag. We should vote a lot more.
 
But but
I am out of votes for today =(

Hey, @SimonForsberg is it feasible to create an opt-in @Duga feature where it yells at us if we don't cast at least 5 votes in a day?

Zak
@EBrown I keep getting that one wrong for some reason :(
 
@Zak Mod-pings every user on the site?
I don't want Eric Lippert voting 5 times a day.
 
Zak
@Hosch250 I did say opt-in
 
I vote opt-out.
 
5:40 PM
What about recieving a small prize to the top 5 votes a year / half a year?
 
Zak
@N3buchadnezzar Not against it, but I don't think it will actually change behaviour. Lots of great behavioural research showing that habits are something you build from the bottom-up. There's a direct relationship between frequency and immediacy of feedback, and development of new behaviour.

@Zak Agree. Good with a kickstart though =)
 
5:41 PM
Or any variation.
 
Zak
@Hosch250 That, I like.
 
I'd be willing to donate a prize for the top voter(s) of the month/quarter/year, whatever we decide.
 
How about the CR logo with the dots replaced by a check with the tail sticking out of the circle?
 
Zak
@EBrown IMO, weekly would be the most effective.
 
@Zak That may be infeasible.
 
5:43 PM
I can't donate anything monetary, but if you want something digital, sure.
 
@EBrown Make the title of the metapost, every voice / vote matters?
/ Your vote matters
 
Zak
@EBrown I guarantee that 1/4 prizes once a week will have a bigger effect than 1 prize every month.
 
@Zak Well we'll discuss it in Meta.
I'm writing the post now.
 
Zak
@EBrown I'll give it an upvote ^^
 
I don't think we should be paying people for votes.
 
5:45 PM
Do we have a seperate vote count on meta?
 
@N3buchadnezzar Yes.
 
Also, what happens when a bunch of people tie?
 
Meta sites are different from main sites.
 
@Hosch250 Is that realistic? Just make it a draw
 
Highly realistic.
 
Zak
5:47 PM
@Hosch250 You mean more than 1 person casting 280 votes in a week? I'd gladly buy extra prizes.

Q: Looping through a JavaScript array of objects to find username and password

Korbin DearyI am trying to loop through an array to find an username provided by the user and then find the password. HTML: <script src="../js/databasefinder.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <h2>Login</h2> <div class="form"> <label id="error" style="color:red"></label><br> <label for="username">...

 
6:57 PM
But, we're still below the average Votes Per Entity for graduated sites.
And while the comments from @200_success and @Zak about the 150 rep threshold are completely valid, this begs the question: why do we have so few users above 150 rep and voting?
 
exactly
