Q: Has anyone noticed some questions on Ask Ubuntu that are totally unrelated to Ubuntu?

BajiruAbout a week ago, there were some questions on Ask Ubuntu by various users that were totally unrelated to Ubuntu. One was about cooking or something like that. The same thing happened today with a question about eggs yolks and nonsense which had -6 (6 undervotes) and got locked. But there was a ...

New policy: Please don't comment on posts Smokey reports unless you're familiar with the site.
Should we say "spam" meta posts as well?
A bunch of us jumping on with posts might not be the best idea
A coordinated post from us (as in just one post) would be better
 
@CalvT븃 nah, there's a vast range of possible meta posts
The Charcoal-sucks meta, I would agree
 
Both answers basically just say the same though
 
12:09 PM
It's just the meta.se post showed us pretty clearly that the community is a bit wary of us
 
@Henders we should just agree not to jump right in at once. 12 people commenting the same thing under the meta post is childish slash messy regardless of the subject
 
I got the perfect storm of unlucky on SO
 
@CalvT븃 well, nothing hurts by commenting in an innocent one like up there
 
@CalvT븃 I was going to suggest the same thing
 
1 declined flag and > 10 new flags since then, but they're all pending, so I get the flag ban warning
 
12:12 PM
But comment storms are something else
 
I'll make a post on the channel
And then we can let the votes decide
 
@CalvT븃 IMO, answering that meta post is fine. Although one answer would indeed have been enough.
 
it's not just our internal votes, we see more pressure from the outside to please avoid piling on
 
@Magisch Is that just the one that says "please review carefully"? That's not really a warning in the usual sense just means to check to make you're not making more of the same mistake (if it was one).
 
@Magisch I keep getting a warning, which I dunno if counts, and I have a bazillion helpful flags after that
 
12:14 PM
@terdon That's exactly my point. Answer the post, but only with one answer, that includes all the information. Hence "coordinated response"
 
@PeterJ ya
 
@CalvT븃 post all the alternatives though
@PeterJ oh, yeah, that one
 
JAD
well, coordinated is nice, but just removing your post if you see someone else beat you to it should work as well
 
It's really annoying to see it after 528,491 helpful flags after a declined flag
Coordinated sounds boring and bureaucratic actually
Maybe just someone posts a "answer is on me" message?

@CalvT븃 KTHXBAI good sir
 
@tripleee I would like to join eventually to be able to use it as a sort of charcoal.meta, but I thought I'd give you all time to settle in first. I also wasn't sure if you wanted non-active charcoalers there.
 
@AJ pretty sure Sophia Brown is not alive
 
@terdon I don't think we have a requirement per se
You're a mod so you're already default privileged should be enough to just join it
 
Sure, but maybe you wanted a private place :)
 
12:35 PM
nah
 
Pretty much everything we do is transparent, intentionally.
 
tis' all really transparent
 
@terdon it's not particularly private anyway, my impression is that we have a fair number of Teams members who are not active in Charcoal

@ProcessedMeat I was on Meta page of Ask Ubuntu when I saw that question. It didn't take time to conclude that that post was spam and flagged by Charcoal members. So, I started writing my answer.
 
@terdon Not really. If we get to keep it once the beta is over, then it'll replace Github Issues for policy etc
 
12:35 PM
OK, cool. I'll drop Art a line then.

Ah, yes I'd forgotten that. What email does it send to?
 
12:37 PM
@terdon It posts the verify link directly to this chat
 
It doesn't - posts the link to this chat instead
 
@terdon it does to Metasmoke which results in a notice here in chat

@ProcessedMeat I was on Meta page of Ask Ubuntu when I saw that question. It didn't take time to conclude that that post was spam and flagged by Charcoal members. So, I started writing my answer.
 
I might yield if we feel it's required, though I note that you have seem to have little involvement in the Ask Ubuntu community
 
@tripleee So a notice is posted here, I'm taken to some teams page and there I need to login using my SE credentials?
