Jack Douglas replying to A-ee
@A-ee  oh I see — that might be fine or not fine it all depends what you and the other folk here want
Jack Douglas replying to Adám
Not by the definition of 'spamming' that you and I would use, however @A-ee's voting looks fine to me, so I think it's either a communication issue are some jesting ;)

**Announcement:** 25 minutes until APL Cultivation in the [APL Orchard](https://chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/52405/the-apl-orchard)

I'm very surprised that for all these days, you are conincidentally conforming the rule specified in the CoC.
A-ee replying to Adám
If you are unable to recognize any claim along the lines of the CoC (i.e. not understanding the CoC),  that explains why you are always asking about "Is <x> allowed under the CoC?".
A-ee
Emoticons that don't work: XD @_@ =w= :^) 
A-ee
(There's definitely something wrong with my eyes. I am seeing "Adám correcting Me")
Adám replying to A-ee
[You retroactively corrected your claim!](https://topanswers.xyz/chat-history?id=31703) :-D
A-ee replying to Adám
How is that? If I haven't mistaken [here](https://topanswers.xyz/meta?q=8)'s the Code of Conduct.
Adám replying to A-ee
True, but the TA CoC doesn't mention anything about being kind.
A-ee replying to Adám
People want to have stars, so I guess it conforms the rule that people should "be nice".
Adám
@Jack Is star spamming allowed under the CoC?
A-ee replying to Jack Douglas
Duplicate of [this](https://codegolf.stackexchange.com/questions/11623/shortest-common-superstring) CG.SE challenge.
Jack Douglas replying to A-ee
duplicate of what?
A-ee
I've star-spammed all CG.TA questions. Now it's time for Meta.TA.
A-ee
Also there isn't a limit on the stars I can give per day. and it's even more fun than upvote-spamming on CG.SE.
A-ee
(BTW it's exciting to be able to give 2 stars at a time.)
A-ee
At least how long should I wait before I can rate again?
A-ee
Rate limit hit, please try again later.
A-ee
Uh-oh. My challenge is a duplicate. (Although I'd just leave my challenge here. I don't want to use the flag for deletion.)
A-ee
How in the world are people on TA able to understand such a confusing challenge!?
A-ee
Yep, that's the challenge I'm discussing.
Jack Douglas replying to A-ee
you mean 'join by overlap'? I'd like to answer that one when it launches
A-ee
Yep. I'm alone for 2 days.
A-ee
Well. Nobody is commenting on my newly-posted challenge? I can't use TA as a Sandbox anymore...
Jack Douglas replying to Adám
thanks, I've popped that one [on Github](https://github.com/topanswers/topanswers/issues/57)
Adám
@Jack After adding the stars that would unlock a challenge, it isn't actually unlocked until the page is reloaded.
Jack Douglas replying to A-ee
I'd like to merge all three accounts into the one you want to keep, but only when you are done creating new accounts! If you are sure you want to keep this one, please post the first 8 chars from the previous one (the other one besides 'b2a32645').
Adám replying to A-ee
What?
A-ee replying to Adám
How is it possible just by inferring from the key?
Adám replying to A-ee
We can all see your various stars counts.
A-ee replying to Jack Douglas
So, you know my two previous account keys to tell the difference, right?
A-ee replying to Jack Douglas
That sounds great.
A-ee replying to Adám
I'm quite sure that they're all tagged.

`Other competition`? It's indeed a kind of non-competition, so it's an other competition.
PeterVandivier
seems a bit iffy (in my estimation) for stated spirit of the network, but it's something i want so i figured i'd see if it fits here
PeterVandivier
`Other Competition` or `Tips` type perhaps? 🤔
PeterVandivier
Would it be in the spirit of the network to tee up "_How to Convert Base64 to Hex_" not so much for the challenge of getting it as short as  possible, but just to collect a list of different ways to do it in different languages?

**Announcement:** I'm hosting [a webinar](https://dyalog.tv/Webinar/?v=6SAsgEvUmkU) in 40 mins on Progressive Set Functions in APL
Adám
@liek Please tag your challenges.

One vote on TA is 8 votes on CGCC.
Adám replying to Jack Douglas
Sure, but ideally, it'd advertise why TA is better for code golf:
* integrated score board
* integrated chat — with MathJax
* integrated automatic leader boards  
* integrated forced sandboxing  
* integrated custom "about" page

Maybe someone can make a good community ad for the SE site? CG.TA is very much on-topic for the ads.
Jack Douglas
If we can make Code Golf more fun here than anywhere else we will surely succeed — but there is a bit of a chicken and egg, because we devs are more motivated to improve things the more activity there is!
Mathgeek
Things here are slow, what's the plan to bring  in people?

This is your third account and not the account you originally requested the merge from

Jack Douglas replying to A-ee
if you can please post the first 8 chars of the key from your other account I'll merge it with this one, how does that sound?
A-ee
Hmm ... no reply?
Adám replying to Jack Douglas
OK: Yes, but make sure to merge the new account into the old, not the other way around, because the *new* user asked for this, so in case of ID theft, the user that asked for the merge (i.e. the thief) looses their account.
Jack Douglas replying to Adám
I was asking you :)
Adám replying to Jack Douglas
Who are you asking?
Jack Douglas
do you want me to go ahead and do that?
Jack Douglas replying to Adám
yes I can merge them no problem
Adám replying to liek
You went through the effort of changing name and avatar, and now it causes confusion. By spreading your activity over two accounts, you also won't achieve higher voting power as quickly.
liek
Since I've already logged in, I don't see the neccecity to log out and log in again.
Adám
@Jack Would it be possible to merge the accounts by reassigning posts and stars (except any stars one account has given the other)?
Adám replying to liek
Why did you use both accounts to post and flag then?
liek
So can the create account be further away from the login button?
liek
I accidentally created a new account by clicking the create account button right next to the login button...
Adám replying to liek
What?
Adám
@Jack Creating [multiple accounts so one has multiple flags](https://topanswers.xyz/codegolf?q=631#question) would be against the CoC §1, no?
liek
[This](https://topanswers.xyz/codegolf?q=630) already has 2 stars? I guess it's okay as long as nobody gives the third star.
liek
Wow, we could self-star after the challenge has launched? I didn't know that before.
Adám replying to DJMcMayhem
They get notified of flags, can see flagged posts, and dismiss flags. There's also a special Flag Chat room.
Adám replying to DJMcMayhem
Just search for the post type in braces: `{code golf}` or `{wiki}`
DJMcMayhem
Oh, and also is it possible to browse *only* code golf questions, or *only* wiki questions?
DJMcMayhem
Are there actually features yet for "mods" on this site?
DJMcMayhem replying to Adám
Sorry, but not really. I think I'm a little bit burnt out on moderating
Adám
@DJMcMayhem Interested in being a mod *here*?
Adám replying to ngn
Welcome!
ngn
hello :)
Adám
Yes, that's it.
Jack Douglas replying to DJMcMayhem
This was a special request here — I think the idea is to act as a built-in sandbox so answers aren't allowed until the challenges get enough approval from the community. @Adám will be able to explain better than me :)
DJMcMayhem
Oh, and 1 more question: What does "3 stars required to launch" mean?
Jack Douglas
if it was your own answer you are commenting on perhaps it would make sense for the text to read "re my answer"?
Jack Douglas
on (2), we are planning to tweak what the 'comment' link does. It will still ping the post author but by default will insert "re this answer" with a link to the answer
Jack Douglas replying to DJMcMayhem
re (1), we've now hidden the license controls and only show them on demand — how does that look to you?
DJMcMayhem
Hmm, I just posted an answer for the first time, and I have some thoughts. 1) The "post" button while you're writing up your answer is not very obvious (took me a little while to find it) and 2) is there a reason you cannot comment on your own post?
Jack Douglas replying to Οurous
@Adám, @Οurous, @liek it's now set to 3
Οurous replying to Adám
At least 3, I think.
Adám
@Mego Welcome to CG.TA. Will you be a mod?
xnor replying to liek
I think that's unfortunate for visibility of newer answers. It's hard to get votes if people don't see your answer.
liek
I'm not quite used to later answers going to the top of the answers bar ...
liek replying to Adám
We should add it to 3. (Because newer challenges have at least 3 votes, including yours.)
Adám
**CMP** (Chat Mini Poll): What should the threshold for opening a challenge to answers be? It is currently 2, meaning 2 new users or one very slightly experienced user can open it.
Adám replying to James Douglas
I've noticed, and that's very nice, but I don't see the problem. Just wrap the button in the a
James Douglas replying to Adám
The reason we're trying to style links rather than using default buttons is so you can right click > open in new tab
Adám
I personally don't mind default buttons.
Adám replying to James Douglas
Fine, but terribly inconsistent with the rest of the design.

how do you all feel about this look? Feel free to post counter-suggestions
Jack Douglas
Most of all: **thanks to everyone for dropping by**. If you chose to stay and Golf here we'd like to make you feel welcome and we appreciate any and all feedback. Some parts of the site are still much more rough round the edges than others but you should notice things getting better week by week.
Jack Douglas replying to liek
I'm not entirely happy with them either
