@Catija Having edited anonymously for a long time and gotten edit-banned, I can tell you where that spam message comes from. If an IP gets insta-banned, all previous suggestions from that IP will display that message. I don't know if there are any other triggers, but I know that one exists.

@AndrewT. Neither does Software Recommendations
By the way I contacted SE about the problem with signing in to MSE chat, after reading a meta post that contacting SE about certain questions may get a response from the team faster.
 
6-8 weeks?
 
Until then I can't participate in Tavern

A: What's the intention of setting a bounty on a [feature-request] or a [bug]?

Tim PostYagmoth is correct, it's one way to draw attention to something. However, there are two goals one might be looking to accomplish by doing so: Get more feedback from the community on a particular discussion or feature-request, Get some kind of official response on a particular discussion feature...

@JourneymanGeek Also worth mentioning that I just flagged and had deleted a 3-year-old non-answer on Android Enthusiasts
 
what's the point?
 
You guys were mentioning old posts in the Tavern
 
we were talking about bad ideas, and vote spreads ;p
 
@JourneymanGeek Out of curiosity, what was your initial reaction to the anonymous editing on MSE?
 
I didn't really care
I don't do review queues much

@ShadowWizard I'm not sure if that's the case, though I think so.
(As an aside: I can't help but keep calling you "Shadow the Hedgehog")
Also I think you should ping Shog and mention the bug by which I can't post in Tavern
 
12:23 PM
Hedgehog is fine by me. :D

A: Suggested edit by Anonymous

gparyaniI'm the anonymous editor. I'm responsible for ~95% of anonymous edits in the past year here on MSE. The proof: https://meta.stackexchange.com/review/suggested-edits/55306 First, a little about myself. Back in 2013, I created an account on Stack Overflow, so I could get help for computer programm...

@ShadowWizard You should post that link on the Tavern
 
1:01 PM
@gparyani done!
Reminds me of @nicael using me to broadcast his messages on chat while he was suspended for abusing a bug.... :D
He did it by changing the chat profile description.
But people didn't really like it, lol...
Were you around during the time @nicael "stole" tons of reputation from users? @gparyani
 
It's been fun while it lasted..
 
1:35 PM
@ShadowWizard Probably not
Did he mass-unaccept answers?
About @Chicken: this may be relevant

Q: The Quest for the Winter Chickens of the Bash

SPArchaeologistIt is that time of the year again, winter is coming, and while all the ponies are busy hanging home-made icicles to the roofs of their houses, here we are again collecting hats and wondering about the eggs they may hide. Some of the oldest of you, my kind public, may remember an old forgotten ta...

@JourneymanGeek Was typing up a question, but you beat me to posting it.
 
1:51 PM
@gparyani I had dinner too ;p

Can one of you please ping @Shog9 in the Tavern? He seems to be active now.

@gparyani I can ping a dev to try & fix your old profile, or I can just delete it.
Option #1 gets you into chat in 6-8 days, option #2 gets you in in 6-8 minutes.
Your call.
These days we automatically delete chat profiles when all associated main-site profiles are removed, which should avoid this particular decision.
 
10:35 PM
@Shog9 Any implications to choosing to delete it?
 
@gparyani you lose the ability to easily find and reflect back on your ancient words of wisdom
 
@Shog9 Archived my old profile pages. Just go ahead and delete it; don't want to bother a dev at this point. Also please answer my MSE question

Q: Cannot login to chat.meta.stackexchange.com; server error when trying to access chat homepage

gparyaniI just recreated my MSE account after having deleted it a few years ago. Now, I'm trying to log in to Meta Stack Exchange Chat, and whenever I try to do so, it just fails silently and I'm still logged out. Additionally, in the same browser session that I'm supposedly logged out, I get a server e...

 
@gparyani try it now
 
@Shog9 It works!
 
good
 
10:45 PM
@Shog9 What's the Chicken?
@Shog9 You misspelled "deleted"
Could you also please answer my other question?
