12:00 AM
Daniil has been automatically appointed as owner of this room. (What does this mean?)
 
looks like it happened :)
 
user435118
Yay :)
 
Congratulations!
 
user435118
@JacobB Shush or I’ll kick you
 
user435118
Just joking :)

user435118
Should I change the room name to Droning on, the most voted name of the room idea?
 
Maybe?
I guess so.
You can always change it later, so it can't hurt.
 
user435118
room topic changed to Droning On: General discussion for drones.stackexchange.com (no tags)
 
@Feeds Huh, how'd that happen?
 
user435118
@ifconfig It is a calculation, the user who has the most messages in the room and averages at least 10 a day
 
12:15 AM
Huh. Interesting
 
user435118
You don’t like the current RO? :)
 
12:26 AM
No, just didn't know that was possible... :)
 
 
6 hours later…
6:20 AM
@Feeds Hey, congratulations! :)
 
lol
 
We're all here now.
 
Hey, I was asleep when that happened, just like I foretold!
21 hours ago, by Tinkeringbell
@Daniil Hmmm. You might have to stay up quite a long time, I think...
 
Oh geez... that convo.....
 
Something wrong with it?
 
6:31 AM
at face value, no. I feel like I jumped into the middle of something that has been going on for a long while by clicking that hyperlink
 
Oh, yeah... we had been talking for a little while about the criteria for automatic room ownership by that point ;)
If you want to start at 'the beginning', this is probably a starting point :)
 
no im gud
imma melt away into the darkness now.
XD
 
Good luck!

11:39 AM
@Tinkeringbell Thanks :)
 
user435118
2:55 PM
@Tinkeringbell To stay as RO do you have to stick to the 10 messages a day requirement or you get removed as RO?
 
user435118
Or is that only the case when the RO is inactive and someone else gets appointed?
 
Your Room Owner privileges can only be removed by a moderator (and perhaps by yourself/another Room Owner?). There is no script that will remove them if you don't post messages, or if you don't enter the room.
But if you stop entering the room for more than 30 days, the script that appointed you will pick another, second, room owner from the people that are active at that time :)
 
user435118
3:21 PM
Ok, thanks for the info. I thought that my RO was temporary and if someone posted more than me they would replace me :)
 
congrats on that RO :P
everything set for the nomination? (if you're applying?)
 
3:37 PM
@Daniil Heh, that'd be weird + cause a lot of random posting if people started to dislike you ;)
 
user435118
@CaldeiraG Thanks :)
 
user435118
@CaldeiraG Yeah (I always find something to tweak though), so probably just some minor changes. The nomination is largely copied from my nomination here: ell.stackexchange.com/election/4 just adapted with some more figures (e.g. helpful flags) and made it site specific. Haven’t started on the questionnaire yet though
 
user435118
@Tinkeringbell The battle of the room owner :D If I feel my room ownership is under threat, I’ll kick them :)
 
user435118
Only 65 eligible voters as of yet
 
user435118
So only expecting ~40 votes for all candidates combined
 
user435118
3:50 PM
There might not even be an election if there aren’t 4 candidates, interesting...
 
user435118
@Tinkeringbell Why can’t I kick you from the room, I can kick other people...
 
user435118
Is it because you are a mod?
 
user435118
4:07 PM
If anyone has photos for a photo competition (1 photo per person per month and the photo must be taken with your drone), please confirm and reply to this message
4
 
4:32 PM
@NikeDattani Looks like it's good?
 
5:02 PM
@Catija Yes, it took a while for Drones to show up on SEDE, but Glorfindel told me the other day in the Tavern on Meta, that the Drones data came up recently.
 
@Daniil Yes. You can't kick moderators ;)
It's to avoid mutinies. :)
@Daniil What you can do though, is pin messages like that one, so they'll show up at the top of the sidebar and stick there for a while. Might be useful, especially once the room attracts more traffic and such messages move out of sight quickly.
 
@NikeDattani The issue with it got fixed on Sunday. :)
 
5:41 PM
@Daniil I have some photos I can submit.
 
user435118
@Tinkeringbell Thanks for the suggestion, I pinned it
 
user435118
@JacobB Good to hear, around how many in total?
 
@Daniil I have several landscape photos (probably like 20 good ones) taken with a Mavic but not many other types of photos.
 
user435118
@JacobB Ok, thanks for that. We will need at least 3+ other users to run the competition
 
5:56 PM
@Daniil Hopefully some more people will visit this chat room and see your earlier message
 
 
5 hours later…
10:58 PM
@JacobB I wouldn't count on that... :(
AFAIK, most SE users haven't heard of the chat feature of SE sites.
 
user435118
@ifconfig Have you got some drone pics?
 
Sadly no... I haven't flown in over a year, actually..... COVID19 and high school got me buzzzzzzzy
:( :( :(
 
user435118
:(
 
user435118
@ifconfig What are you studying?
 
Well, after my senior year of HS comes to a close I'm majoring in Computer Engineering at the University of California Santa Barbara.
I like both computer programming and electrical engineering, so the major is a win-win
 
11:18 PM
@ifconfig :(
 
Yea, I'll be the first to admit it's a sad state.
But at least I haven't forgotten how it all works!
 
I also haven't been flying for a while, but I probably have enough room where I live to fly. But there are a lot of trees.
And trees like to eat my RC stuff.
 
Ha!
 
I've lost a few planes to the trees.
 
I live in an area of the SF Bay Area which has 3 airports in relatively close proximity, 4 if you count a smaller regional airport... it's hard to find open spaces which are sparsely populated enough to fly.
 
11:23 PM
That's unfortunate. Lots of taken airspace :(
 
KSFO, KSJC, KPAO, and KNUK
Yea.
 
I live in a Rural-ish area in VA
with trees everywhere
 
Hrm. I love it here in silicon valley, but I can definitely see the draw for the RC hobby to live in a semi-rural area.
I can't ever seem to spell the word definitely correctly the first time....
 
lol
 
de-finite-ly... I have to think about it that way
 
11:29 PM
Yeah, I tend to misspell certain words
 
I think this is probably my most often misspelled word. It's even worse though because I usually can't fix it without resorting to the google dictionary.
 
I often have to really think about words with ei or ie because I am learning german and the german words use ei/ie differently.
 
Oh yeah, that part of spelling too for me.
 
English is weird. :)
 
I'm learning/decently proficient in written Spanish, so a bit different. :)
Yes, it is.
 
11:33 PM
That's cool. I know a few people learning spanish but I never was as interested by it.
 
How dare you say such a thing...
 
Well, It's a cool language...
 
lol, where I live it's the second most common language spoken. :)
American SW/California
 
Yeah, I hear it often here (before quarantine, of course)
There are several spanish speakers at the school I go to.
I think that's why I wasn't too interested. I wanted to learn something that wasn't common.
 
user435118
I’m off to sleep, bye!
 
11:40 PM
Hrm, I see. I wanted the opposite.
¡Adios, @Daniil !
 
@Daniil Bye!
I guess german won't benefit me much unless I travel. lol
 
🤷‍♂️
 
Yea, maybe not the most beneficial choice, but I like the language.
So that's a plus :)
Also, this is completely unrelated, but will you be running as mod @ifconfig ?
 
Yea, I'm planning to run for a position
 
Cool. I'm thinking I will, but I'm not entirely sure yet...
 
11:52 PM
Well I know Daniil was also planning on doing the same. :)
We'll likely have more than three self-nominations.
 
Yea, I'm expecting at least 5? maybe.
