[00:04] <ScottSteiner> johnduhart: Nick Drake
[00:04] <Fluffernutter> they don't seem to have accounted for monobook, I think
[00:04] <pir^2> "The blackout message is *completely* (emphasis) unreadable"
[00:04] <foks> Vector is shit
[00:04] <Purplewowies> The Blackout screen doesn't work correctly in MonoBook.

[00:07] <Brandan> Mobile wikipedia will stay online
[00:07] <ScottSteiner> last edit:

[00:07] <Hazard-SJ> :'(
[00:07] <Brandan> Felixggenest_.
[00:07] <Zidonuke> Hazard-SJ:
[00:07] <Hazard-SJ> ScottSteiner: Lol
[00:07] <Zidonuke> rollback was removed
�03[00:07] * seraphimblade ( from United States also in #wikipedia has joined #wikipedia-en
[00:07] <Zidonuke> but it exists
[00:07] <Purplewowies> XD
[00:07] <Zidonuke>
[00:07] <Robert_Skyhawk> I would link [[WP:WPISNOTWIKI]], but seeing as we're blacked out...
[00:07] <Bsadowski1> People are reporting that the Congress data is wrong
�03[00:07] * PhancyPhysicist ( from United States also in #wikipedia #wikimedia has joined #wikipedia-en
[00:08] <Hazard-SJ> Zidonuke: It was unset, but it is still in the database.
[00:08] <Brandan> they're now reporting that?
[00:08] <Aranda56> Scott McDonald decides to protest editing and 30 editors followed because of this blackout :/
[00:08] <Brandan> lol.
[00:08] <guerillero> a new user told another new user to {{Uw-4im}} me for CSDing a page
[00:08] <Hazard-SJ> lol
�03[00:08] * GTRsdk (~gtrsdk@unaffiliated/gtrsdk) has left #wikipedia-en ("Leaving")
[00:08] <Ryulong> now
[00:08] <Purplewowies> Y'know... every other time I came in here, it seemed like no one was talking... now, we're all Chatty Cathy!
�06[00:08] * Moe_Epsilon deals cards�
[00:08] <Ryulong> what do I block in adblock so I can read things
[00:08] <seraphimblade> Aranda56: If you do anything at all worth doing, it will inevitably piss someone off.
[00:08] <guerillero> were the 30 interesting editors
[00:09] <Fluffernutter> monobook issue is fixed, those of you who were having viewing issues
[00:09] <bobrayner> I have a concern. The blackout page is obviously *supposed* to have a message, but in Chrome at least it's small and low-contrast and barely readable. Definitely a problem for readers who face accessibility/readability problems. Where's the best place to get this fixed?
�15[00:09] * tashir (4306855a@gateway/web/freenode/ip. from #wikipedia-en #wikimedia-sopa #wikimedia Quit (Ping timeout: 258 seconds)
�06[00:09] * Sp33dyphil is amused by how many people get on IRC when WP is down
[00:09] <Robert_Skyhawk> Purplewowies: IRC has become the backup source of entertainment for people who normally spend hours editing
[00:09] <Felixggenest_> ciao! have a nice 24 hr :)
[00:09] <taylornate> looks fine to me in chrome
�15[00:09] * Felixggenest_ (18c9d19a@gateway/web/freenode/ip. from #wikipedia-en Quit (Client Quit)
[00:10] <ty> It looks fine to me as well
�15[00:10] * HelloAnnyong (HelloAnnyo@wikipedia/helloannyong) from #wikipedia-en #wikipedia Quit Quit
[00:10] <Aranda56> maybe different areas?
�03[00:10] * Cour|nothere (~chatzilla@wikipedia/courcelles) has joined #wikipedia-en
[00:10] <Zidonuke>
[00:10] <Zidonuke> The most amazing sight ever
[00:10] <ScottSteiner> maybe the blackout will give me a reason to finally fix
[00:10] <Zidonuke> not seeing any edits for more than 1 minute
[00:10] <Aranda56> seraphimblade yea i guess
[00:10] <Keiya> Oh hey, Wikipedia went down and my STO download finished.
[00:11] <Aranda56> i read most of the tech magazines and tbey said SOPA would destroy wikipedia
[00:11] <midori> ryulong: disable js
[00:11] <Ryulong> too much work
[00:11] <SMasters> I can still access my watchlist. Not that there's anything new to see.
[00:11] <Ryulong> just give me the particular js entry that's doing it
[00:11] <bobrayner> hmm, that's odd, the blackout page has now changed to something high-contrast with a buch clearer layout. Must have been a transient thing.
[00:11] <matthewrbowker> bobrayner: Yep, they forgot the backgoround.
[00:11] <Jeske_Merensky>
[00:11] <MyNameWasTaken> Wow, Zidonuke, you're right, that's crazy
[00:11] <matthewrbowker> *background
[00:12] <midori> ...ah, so you can fix it in your user .js ? :D
[00:12] <Ryulong> I need to know what species of penguin is in this photo I've found
[00:12] <Ryulong> no
�06[00:12] * Aranda56 don't know how to use js
[00:12] <Ryulong> so I can block it with Adblocker
�15[00:12] * mwbrown (~mwbrown@wikipedia/Bluhd) from #wikipedia-en Quit (Quit: Leaving)
�03[00:12] * GabrielF (~GabrielF@wikipedia/GabrielF) has joined #wikipedia-en
[00:12] <Fluffernutter> Ok so guys. Lots of channels are going crazy, and we're having trouble monitoring them all. If you see disruption/trolling here, please be proactive about using the ops stalkword to draw the ops' attention to it
[00:12] <sodaant> sure
[00:12] <Ryulong> so I can read shit
[00:12] <midori> Fluffernutter: ...ah, trolling beyond the usual?
[00:12] <slon02> how many phone calls do you think certain politicians will get?
[00:12] <sodaant> plenty
[00:12] <Fluffernutter> the usual too, midori
[00:13] <midori> even mine?
�06[00:13] * slon02 feels sorry for those poor staffers and switchboard operators
[00:13] <GabrielF> so it looks like the last edit before we went was to "Biman Bangladesh Airlines" with a summary that said "No more images in this article, please"
�03[00:13] * Floydian ( from Canada also in #wikimedia-sopa has left #wikipedia-en
[00:13] <Pharos> typical
[00:13] <Romaine> why is there no banner on en-wiki: "if you pay, Wikipedia will be back" ? ;)
[00:13] <midori> just realized: thankgoodness I'm not otrs right now. x.x
[00:13] <GabrielF> slon02 that's part of their job, people launch phone campaigns all the time
�06[00:14] * Hazard-SJ has a blackout now
[00:14] <bobrayner> Ryulong: Which photo? I know a friendly penguin biologist who could help ident... who is probably awake at this time
�06[00:14] * Hazard-SJ leaves
�15[00:14] * Hazard-SJ (~Hazard-SJ@TestWiki/Hazard-SJ) from #wikipedia-en Quit (Quit: Bye!)
[00:14] <slon02> still doesn't change the fact that these days suck for them
[00:14] <harej> Romaine: Such a banner would be in really poor taste and it would jeopardize Wikimedia's non-profit status.
[00:14] <Keiya> <- First reaction from someone who didn't already know...
[00:14] <GabrielF> fluffernutter - looks like you were the 11th to last edit
[00:14] <Romaine> harej: I KNOW :p
[00:14] <GabrielF> so close
[00:14] <Fluffernutter> do i get a prize?
[00:14] <GabrielF> not for 11th place
[00:15] <CRRaysHead90> that
[00:15] <Romaine> harej: the common joke on the Dutch Wikipedia when the encyclopedia can't be reached but getting some sort of message is why there is no request for donating money on it
[00:15] <GabrielF> wait, actually you were 4th to last
[00:15] <CRRaysHead90> that's all google did?! I'd figure they'd do something more significant than a doodle.
[00:15] <Sp33dyphil> hey, WP sitll works for me
�15[00:16] * MyNameWasTaken (4420a607@gateway/web/freenode/ip. from #wikipedia-en Quit (Ping timeout: 258 seconds)
[00:16] <Robert_Skyhawk> I can only imagine the chaos that would ensue if Google were to blackout...
[00:16] <Aranda56> lets all edit commons :D
[00:16] <slakr> their doodle kicks ass
[00:16] <slakr> it's epic win.
[00:17] <CRRaysHead90> Robert_Skyhawk: no I don't think /they/ should black out, but something a little more significant than a doodle
[00:17] <guerillero>

[00:49] <quanticle> Jeske_Merensky: Well, that's a start, but the problem isn't the DNS blocking. DNS blocking is ezpz to get around. The problem is the lack of due process.

[00:49] <SteveMobile> We shouldn't worry then
[00:50] <Jeske_Merensky> If they do veto, someone's going to argue to the SCotUS that it's unconsctitutional.

[00:54] <quanticle> Jeske_Merensky: Your doubts don't count for very much. Look at what happened with the NDAA. The provision allowing for indefinite detention of US citizens by the military was originally a separate bill. When that bill proved too toxic to pass on its own, it got attached to a bill that no president could, in good conscience, vet.

[04:56] <|Rodejong|> Nope, you can still read it
[04:56] <b_jonas> but that the pages actually load normally and only then a javascript blanks them, and that if you don't have javascript in your browser then NOTHING happens
[04:56] <PeterSymonds> I don't see why it matters.
[04:56] <|Rodejong|> With escape, you can block the java script also b_jonas
[04:56] <b_jonas> DarkoNeko: any other interface for wikipedia that doesn't have a full copy of all the the pages locally
[04:57] <b_jonas> Some people who don't normally have javascript enabled won't even notice that anything's happened.
[04:57] <b_jonas> Look, I don't insist that there should have been a blackout. But once they've announced that there will be, this is a bit sad.
[04:57] <PeterSymonds> I think they will, if you've seen the front pages of most news websites.
[04:57] <DarkoNeko> yeah, I have encountered one of they case
[04:57] <DarkoNeko> -they+such
[04:58] <b_jonas> PeterSymonds: exactly, that's the problem: most people think there'll be a blackout, and now there isn't one.
[04:58] <DarkoNeko> well, there is one for most people
[04:58] <b_jonas> It's like when workers declare a strike and then they cancel it even though they didn't agree in anything.
[04:58] <b_jonas> It sends a worse message than no strike at all:
[04:59] <DarkoNeko> there are also a lot of wikipedians suffering from withdrawal
[04:59] <b_jonas> it tells the government that they're free to set any SOPA laws or whatever this was about, because the websites still won't dare to do anything against it.
[04:59] <DarkoNeko> b_jonas, well, what part of the viewers disable their js ?
[04:59] <b_jonas> Gee, I'm in a rage.

[05:04] <b_jonas> Excirial: you can't, because (a) the database is now disabled, (b) it's protected.
[05:04] <b_jonas> PeterSymonds: a moment
[05:04] <blha303> search google for the page url with 'cache:' in front
[05:04] <PeterSymonds> I've heard of API but never actually bothered to find out what it meant.
[05:04] <DarkoNeko> or try .
[05:05] <wctaiwan> PeterSymonds: basically, I can write a program, and I can give you a set of methods to interact with my program.
[05:05] <b_jonas> PeterSymonds: the API is ; but see also which is a separate mechanism
[05:05] <wctaiwan> using Facebook as an example, they have an API that allows you to post things into a user's streams
[05:05] <b_jonas> in this case
[05:05] <DarkoNeko> actually, works
[05:05] <wctaiwan> so if you use that in your program, your program can allow a user to post to their stream, etc.
[05:06] <wctaiwan> ..heh, nvm then.
[05:06] <PeterSymonds> Oh, I think I understand. Thanks.

[05:09] <b_jonas> but if you wait 19 hours, you will be able to edit again normally.
[05:09] <slakr> actually it's not completely read-only; there's a very tiny subset of people still able to edit it

[05:15] <The359> Protest fail
[05:15] <Sp33dyphil_> when was it changed from non-viewable to viewable?
[05:15] <|Rodejong|> it never was a total black out
[05:16] <|Rodejong|> It's a java script that redirects you
[05:16] <|Rodejong|> Just press escape after entering the URL
[05:16] <Sp33dyphil_> thanks for the tip
[05:16] <wctaiwan> The359: that's explicitly whitelisted
[05:17] <Sp33dyphil_> What, I can't read [[Project A119]]?
[05:17] <wctaiwan> er.
[05:17] <Sp33dyphil_> only on WP namespace right?

[05:18] <Sp33dyphil_> where's the list of such pages?

[05:18] <wctaiwan> I don't know if there is one, actually
[05:18] <tto> there is a whitelist...
[05:19] <wctaiwan> not sure if it's complete

[05:22] <The359> Anything on the blackout FAQ about fudging the fact that some people didn't see the banners about discussion or the blackout?
[05:23] <wctaiwan> I'm not sure how they could have done better really.
�03[05:23] * sDrewth (~sDrewth@wikisource/billinghurst) has joined #wikipedia-en
[05:23] <wctaiwan> unless you had JavaScript disabled, the banner was visible, logged in or logged out
[05:23] <The359> Nope
[05:23] <wctaiwan> so was the "make your voice heard" banner before it.
�15[05:23] * Fifelfoo ( (Australia) from #wikipedia-en #wikipedia Quit (Read error: Connection timed out)
[05:23] <The359> It was in Centralnotice
[05:24] <wctaiwan> eh, it was visible to me all the time until I clicked it away
[05:24] <wctaiwan> and you disabled central notice?
[05:24] <The359> Preferences included a gadget which allowed users to "Block Fundraiser notices"
[05:24] <The359> Which in actuality blocked Centralnotice
[05:24] <wctaiwan> ..meh. How many people were affected?
[05:24] <The359> I blocked the fundraiser notice months ago, and hence I never got any Blackout banners
[05:24] <Excirial> Really? Tech mailinglist mentioned that they would give the blackout banner another id to evade that option.
[05:24] <The359> Really
�03[05:25] * Fifelfoo ( from Australia has joined #wikipedia-en
[05:25] <Excirial> O well.
[05:25] <The359> I never saw a single banner until Prodego killed the gadget about 24 hours ago
[05:25] <The359> And then, it was a tad too late
[05:26] <wctaiwan> saying this as someone who opposes the blackout.. it probably wouldn't make a difference realistically
[05:26] <wctaiwan> Risker said 80% of those who voted were in favour of it.
[05:26] <The359> Still a bit of a stupid mistake
[05:26] <wctaiwan> right, but nothing that'd have changed the outcome, and thus something that could wait until afterwards when we're reviewing what we did correctly and what didn't go well.
[05:27] <wctaiwan> It's remarkably bug-free for something cooked up during such short notice.
[05:27] <The359> It seemed to take less than an hour to figure out ways to circumvent the current banner ;)
[05:28] <wctaiwan> It was intentionally circumventable, as multiple people have repeatedly explained... I'm not complaining.
[05:29] <wctaiwan> I'm using the strict definition of bug: i.e. actual behaviour different from expected behaviour.
[05:29] <The359> I just mean an unplanned circumvention
[05:29] <wctaiwan> in this case, they expected it to be ineffective when javascript execution is somehow interrupted, either because you pressed esc or disabled javascript.

[23:37] <Gfoley4> They seat more people...

[23:40] <mattbuck> Gfoley4, not for 1 person sure

[23:41] <mattbuck> so you're doubling the time needing to get on and off at least if you only have single level platforms
[23:42] <funnyfarm299> But the difference should be negligable. Does the entire train get off at a given station?
[23:42] <Gfoley4> Hmm yeah overcrowding could be an issue
[23:42] <Gfoley4> In downtown yes
�08[23:42] <SerialSockpuppet> yep
[23:42] <Gfoley4> (ie morning commute)
