Channels - sign up here! Should work if you have an email with one of the large providers. Follow these instructions if you get stuck.
@Henders yup, sorry for the noise
@angussidney I noticed a distinct lack of actual information about channels on the starboard, thought this might be helpful

For those of you who don't like the Channels left sidebar, I made a userstyle to minimise it when you're not using it.

@ArtOfCode Got a link to your userscript for minimising the chat avatars?
200 - thanks!
Ah, I have to get a new plugin to use it?

@ArtOfCode will it mess up my colorful chat userscript?
@ArtOfCode Is there a way to minify the avatars without the blackness?

@ArtOfCode Ahhhhhhhh! It's all gone dark! My eyes!
@ArtOfCode Hey, that's cool! Thanks for making that :D
@SmokeDetector Sloppy fingers. I meant NAA.
11:38 AM
@Ferrybig There is, you can copy the relevant styles out of that style
I like this dark side bad obvious jokes
Now non-mods are blue and mods are orange?! What is this madness...
@Tinkeringbell so that's why all the dark side complementary cookies are gone ...
@Tinkeringbell part credit to one of the SE staff for starting it off... I just fixed the bugs and added avatar minification
@ArtOfCode Ah I see, well, thanks to that person as well then!

@ArtOfCode Your smokey sidebar usingscript is finally started to act up, for some reason it * sometimes* randly requests urls like stackoverflow.com/c/charcoal/https://… what return 404 errors

@Ferrybig Ahhhhh! That's perfect, thank you :)
@Henders You should really thank Art for it, as he basically made it, :P
@Ferrybig Thanks @Art - you basically made it, :P
12:08 PM
@Henders You're not updating that cool pic? ;)
@AJ I will but I have to find the image first, it's not on this machine.
@Henders Oh.
is there any "minimal/recommended system requirement" for SmokeDetector / Metasmoke?
I noticed yesterday I got my first declined flag in a year or so and it was Indian escort spam on RPG, definitely spam but the custom decline message was "please use standard flags..." and a link on how to flag. I used a spam flag so I guess there must be something on the mod UI that means if a mod see a wrong flag from another user (I guess in this case an 'other' flag) it's easy for them to accidentally dismiss all flags with the same reason?
@PeterJ I'd just forget about it. It doesn't really matter for anything at all, especially if you have tons of other helpful flags.
12:14 PM
@PeterJ Got a link to the post?
@iBug it can run on a t2.micro, so... not really
Wasn't too worried, everyone fat-fingers things ocassionally, I'll just try and find it now...
Aye, it's not an issue, just worth finding out if there was anything exceptional from the handling mod
:43306825 just as efficiently as any other machine
@PeterJ Ironic considering spam is a standard flag
I mainly wondered not having seen it if was something easy for mods to miss. @Art heres's the MS link: metasmoke.erwaysoftware.com/post/109219
btw @ArtOfCode shog provided statistics, and they're appalling
12:17 PM
aye, saw 'em
@PeterJ ta
RPG, sweet. @doppelgreener wanna take a look into the flags on metasmoke.erwaysoftware.com/post/109219 and figure out why a spam flag got declined?
do we publish MS data dumps (for posts we've caught, and probably with the number of feedbacks as well)
Is the autoflag experiment still on by design?
@iBug Thats linked in "tools" --> "Database dumps"
Now that the meta post has passed its relevancy
Jan 25 at 15:13, by Undo
remember, folks, don't make a big deal out of single-instance flag declines. It's not worth it.
that's not to say it can't be investigated
12:21 PM
awww, none of my flags have been used up to now
there goes my flag harvesting scheme
@Magisch yeah, as far as I'm concerned
We need more spammers :P
MS bug: No route matches [GET] "/oauth/authorize" when authenticating FIRE
Heh, we have like 10k flags per site per day that we could be using now... not everyone's get used
@thesecretmaster enable JS
12:23 PM
[status-declined] :P
are the flaggers chosen by random?
12:23 PM
or is it just a list that gets iterated?
@ArtOfCode I really don't like that rails does that :(
@Tschallacka yup, random
Biased towards core, right?
@thesecretmaster the alternative is forms on everything, which sucks even more. So.
12:24 PM
looking for some Chuck Norris-style "Art facts" :)
@thesecretmaster yeah, ceil(total / 2)
@SmokeDetector @iBug I think that one is a false positive, the answerer is saying that he got the problem solves on his own site by installing a plugin

tp for our purpose, and edit it out.
I went with tp because of the gratuitous site link and spammy domain. Wouldn't spam flag on the site, but I'd rather it hadn't been possible to post it in the first place.
@ArtOfCode However, I just noticed the spammy text on the profile page of the user, I'm not so sure if he is legit now
aye, and the username :)
someone close this
329 active autoflagging participants... that's quite a lot
over 100 new since the meta post, we were at 215
did the sticky core role thing get implemented yet?
12:30 PM
we need more spammers so those people also get a shot at casting a flag :P
@Magisch yup
Hmm. Nobody laughed at my joke. :/
c'mon, Channels isn't monitored and someone can safely promote Whatever Enhancement there :)
If they wanna get deactivated they can, yeah ;)
Are we going to eventually have diamond mods there as well?
12:36 PM
we're going to have 4
diamond, heart, club and spade
You know, ♠A is pronounced as "Art of Spade"
So what I'm wondering, does channels have a similar api like SO? Can we use channels to test post detection on SD?
ArtOfSpade suspended iBug
Channels doesn't appear in the API
12:39 PM
@WELZ diamond mods aren't technically a thing within channels. Admins have some mod functions, but SO haven't decided how moderation on channels is going to work yet.

@ArtOfCode Would be fun for a team if the team lead didn't get the diamond if they wanted it... XD I'm expecting hurt feelings somehow somewhere...

@AJ you are so inquisitive
@M.A.R. why
12:49 PM
@AJ Position 9-11: why
@Makyen fair enough, thanks for the headsup :)
@BhargavRao: Do you really want me to make a meta post about that? I know some alternative ways to word that heading that are less so-called "blasphemous". Shutting that answer down is just absurd, considering the pile of * * * * question it answers.
@ArtOfCode I'm 90% sure that was a mistake. Will check with my fellow moderator.
@Cerbrus shutting down the answer? Well, you rollback what a moderator has already rolled back, you are certainly going to flagged
12:54 PM
Misplaced edits, in my opinion. If the wording was changed, sure, but it was removed.
But you could've poked me
But noo
Then you could have certainly edited it out.
Could have. But people could also grow a thicker skin
Or you could be-nice.
I'm not insulting the OP personally.
I'm not attacking any user
Do I want to know which post you're talking about?
12:57 PM
Guys you're early
I'm just strongly stating my disagreement with an idiotic idea
The drama phase hasn't begun yet
Sorry to cloud this room with that, this is the only place I know to find him
There are certainly other ways to state a strong disagreement.
Abso-freaking-lutely not, how about that?
12:58 PM
@Glorfindel not unless you are interested in a soap opera..
@Cerbrus he's not in SOCVR? O.o
@M.A.R. Apparently not
@SurajRao I am interested
And yes, chat rooms aren't the place to discuss moderator actions, there's moderator attention flags and meta.
I suggest let the two of them deal with this @Glorfindel
12:58 PM
I wanna jump into the discudrama
@BhargavRao Do you really want a meta thread about this?
Is there any reason why "absolutely not" doesn't make the cut?
It's not strong enough
Why do you want to get flagged rude and abusive by users?
It doesn't cover how idiotic the idea is
12:59 PM
Guys, if this is not related to spam (and I doubt it is), this is not the best place to discuss it.
Try abso-effing-lutely not
