02:04 < skalman12> both
02:04 < skalman12> but a small matter
02:04 < Pine> ok. If you don't get a response from a local admin and you think it's urgent you can ask a steward in #wikimedia-stewards.
02:05 < skalman12> it's not extremely urgent, but it should be dealt with soon
02:06 < Pine> There are very few admins on IRC at this time, usually. You may have better luck getting a steward.

09:38 < Tony_Sidaway> Saw Richard II on TV a few weeks ago. Trying to remember if Shakespeare makes any obvious references to John of Gaunt's lollardism. The corruption of Richard's court does play off well against Gaunt's relatively ascetic dress and speech, and of course Gaunt's son, exiled by Richard, later overthrows the king.
09:39 < Tony_Sidaway> This would appeal to late Tudor sensibilities, though I can't imagine that it would have pleased the later Stuart monarchy.
09:41 < Soapy> ok

09:56 < Tony_Sidaway> three plays, sorry. H VI is in three, not four.
09:58 < Tony_Sidaway> Patrick Stewart plays John of Gaunt, whose main task is to appear saintly in death while Richard II takes the piss out of him.
09:59 < Tony_Sidaway> Then his son Henry comes back and takes over while Richard is on his hols on a tour of Ireland, and it's Richard's turn to be saintly. What a merry-go-round!

12:32 < Isarra> And why people demand 140 fps is completely beyond me when the brain can't even tell the difference between 30 and 40fps...
12:32 < Tony_Sidaway> I'd say that modern video cards are more powerful than the most powerful computers of former decades.

13:25 < Isarra> On everything.
13:25 < Isarra> Now that's fun.
13:25 < MartijnH> 6% on really basic goods (foodstuffs mainly, not cloathing). Everything else is 21%
13:25 < Guerillero> fuck that
13:26 < Guerillero> i could never live
13:26 < Tony_Sidaway> Here we have exemptions for children's clothing (great if you're skinny and like bright colours!) and uncooked food. And books.
13:26 < Tony_Sidaway> All zero rated.
13:26 < Elduen> One way to look at it is that taxes pay for civilization.
13:26 < Elduen> Unless you're in the US. In which case taxes pay for somewhat less civilization.
13:26 < IDoH> Elduen: On the other hand, VAT unfairly burdens poor people
13:26 < MartijnH> Guerillero, did I mention we pay 52% income tax over any income over about 50k Eur?
13:26 < Isarra> Elduen: Taxes pay for other countries in the union whose economies have failed already.
13:27 < BarkingFish> Fuel is 5% iirc, Tony_Sidaway - and then everything else is 20%
13:27 < Tony_Sidaway> I'd pay taxes any day rather than live on the edge.
13:27 < MartijnH> though it's set to rise a bit soon
13:27 < Elduen> VAT? Union?
13:27 < Guerillero> and you live taxes that high
13:27 < Tony_Sidaway> BarkingFish: oh yes. That's relatively new. Fuel used to be unrated I think.
13:27 < Elduen> If the implementation is broken, hit it with a hammer until it's fixed.

13:28 -!- IShadowed [~IShadowed@wikimedia/IShadowed] has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
13:28 < Tony_Sidaway> Broadly speaking, I'm opposed to consumption taxes. Income and wealth, that's a better basis for taxation.
13:28 < BarkingFish> now on top of prepayment electricity (which I use), you get an extra 5% tax slapped on it
13:29 < Tony_Sidaway> The Beatles' complaints about taxation always struck me as their most surreal output.
13:29 < Isarra> Elduen: People don't want it fixed; they want security.
13:29 < MartijnH> even compared to the Magical Mystery Tour?
13:29 < Elduen> Well, Isarra, what are people?
13:29 < Tony_Sidaway> MartijnH: quite. Yes, that's what I mean.
13:30  * Guerillero thinks americans should live in the EU for a year then he wouldn't need to hear complaining about property taxes every november
13:30 < Isarra> Elduen: Involved.
13:30 < Elduen> Really?
13:30 < Tony_Sidaway> A bunch of multi-millionnaires complaining abiout their marginal tax rates when people are homeless.
13:30 < Guerillero> I think that is the only issue that pennsylvanians care about
13:30 < mareklug> "Romney: I've paid at least 13 percent tax rate in each of past 10 years"  <-- that must sound surreal as a credible self-defense not just to European ears

13:32 < Guerillero> ok
13:33 < mareklug> still, ppl who make far less than Romney can pay 30% federal
13:33 < Tony_Sidaway> But of course his declared income is probably far below his capital gains and whatnot.

14:08 < SudoGhost> You guys are all crazy.  Rock is clearly the best, scissors don't even compare, and paper is an overpowered POS.
14:08 < Elduen> I use Monobook on Wikia wikis.
14:09 < Elduen> It is clean and simple and efficient.
14:09 < Isarra> Wikia only offers two skins - oasis and monobook, and only oasis is allowed as the default skin on anything that isn't an uncyclopedia.

14:11 < Tony_Sidaway> I'm even able to use Cologneblue on Conservapedia. But that place is so ridiculous I seldom bother.
14:11 < Elduen> Conservapedia is still around?
14:11 < Tony_Sidaway> Yep!
14:12 < Steven_Zhang> lol
14:12 < Elduen> o_0
14:12 < Steven_Zhang> yeah
14:12 < Tony_Sidaway> Still as mad as a box of frogs.
14:12 < BarkingFish> Thoughts on this one, turned up in my New Pages Feed - It has the same source for both refs, from the same place - how would you tag? More refs, more sources, or what?

14:12  * Elduen calls Poe's on that place.
14:12 < Steven_Zhang> according to conservapedia, if you even think of the word abortion, you will get 18 forms of cancer all at the same time

14:12 < Tony_Sidaway> Elduen: not a Poe. The founder is one of the sons of Phyllis Schlafly, the antifeminist nutcase.
14:13 < Elduen> I know they're quite serious in their nutjobbery. But thinking of them as a Poe gives me a sliver of hope that we aren't dooming ourselves as a race with that nonsense.
14:13 < Guerillero> how were you not boloced before you could even edit Conservapedia
14:13 < Guerillero> blocked*
14:14 < Steven_Zhang> Elduen: and a swarm of wasps will sting you
14:14 < BarkingFish> Speaking of abortion, someone might be able to tell me, I read somewhere (and now I can't find it) that one of the ant-abortion campaigners in the US who lead some sort of weekly demonstration has popped off.
14:14 < Tony_Sidaway> I was indeed blocked before editing Conservapedia, but I contacted Ed Poor and he was kind enough to vouch for me.

14:20 < Tony_Sidaway> SudoGhost: she. If you know me, you'll be aware that I regard opposition to human rights as fundamentally deranged.
14:20 < Guerillero> and I am looking for edit warring now
14:20 < Pharos> help! russians are kidnapping tartar gymnasts!
14:20 < Guerillero> it isn't that straight forward
14:20 < Isarra> Did someone ping me?
14:20 < Pharos> *tatar
14:20  * Elduen brofists Tony_Sidaway.
14:21 < Steven_Zhang> Guerillero: open your eyes :P
14:21 < Steven_Zhang> it was at DRN
14:21 < Steven_Zhang> and they left DRN to edit war
14:21 < Pharos> are scottish olympic athletes listed as scots playing for GB?
14:22 < Pharos> tatarstan is approximately as real(fake) a country as scotland
14:22 < Guerillero> meh
14:22 < Guerillero> I blocked both for aday
14:22 < Guerillero> I hope it puts some sense into them both
14:23 < SudoGhost> Tony_Sidaway: Well, being "antifeminist" doesn't always equate to "anti-human rights".  There are always some loud people in every group that end up making the group not look at good as they should, and sometimes they become representitive of the group as a whole in the eyes of the public.  Being against those loud (possibly extreme) people doesn't mean you're anti-human rights.
14:23 < Guerillero> and the idea that she isn't russian is laughable
14:23 < Pharos> some of us are just anti-human
14:23 < Tony_Sidaway> Being antifeminist is pretty definitively being anti-human rights.
14:23 < Steven_Zhang> good-o
14:24 < SudoGhost> Tony_Sidaway: There are feminists that believe that all men are rapists by default.  I am against that viewpoint.  That does not make me anti-human rights.
14:24 < Pharos> think of antifeminism as a glass half full!
14:24 < Pharos> you still have rights for ~50%
14:24 < Elduen> Then it depends on your definition of feminism.
14:24 < Tony_Sidaway> There are feminists who think the US President is a space alien. Doesn't mean feminism is about space aliens.
14:25 < Guerillero> Mustafina looked like she was going to break into tears the entire olympics
14:25 < mareklug> "human rights" is a cultural construct of some diversity.  Surely you grant that, Tony
14:25 < Elduen> If you define it as "equal rights for women", then yes, being anti-feminist is anti-human rights.

14:26 < harej> I don't think you're actually against feminism if you specify you're against some inane strawman, unless it indicates you actually do have a deep distrust of women.
14:26 < Steven_Zhang> Elduen: if youre interested drop me a line on my talk page.
14:26  * Guerillero stopped following all feminist bloggers on tumblr when he found out he was "evil" for being born with a penis and being born white and straight
14:26 < Elduen> I will in a little bit, Steven_Zhang.
14:26 < Steven_Zhang> k

14:27 < Steven_Zhang> I do not
14:27 < Steven_Zhang> :P
14:27 < Elduen> None of that makes him privileged.
14:27 < Pharos> that's modest privilege!
14:28 < Isarra> Pharos has an actual brain.
14:28 < Pharos> Guerillero earns that
14:28 < Isarra> That makes him privileged.

14:28 < Pharos> i am looking for someone to rent my brain out to
14:28 < Isarra> You do not want rotten eggplants thrown at you.
14:28 < Tony_Sidaway> This is why I call antifeminists nuts.  It's absolutely pointless arguing with them.

14:37 < BarkingFish> yeah
14:37 < Elduen> Like the lawyer's office at a business.
14:37 < Guerillero> why do wikipedia users dress in one color
14:37 < Elduen> Gotcha.
14:37 < BarkingFish> Several may go in, but only one will emerge, and may not survive very long after that
14:37 < WilliamH_UK> BarkingFish wie viele Tage bis München? :P
14:37 < Isarra> Guerillero: They're insane.
14:37 < Isarra> Same reason as why they use wikipedia.
14:37 < Pharos> Guerillero: there should be a commons category for that
14:38 < Tony_Sidaway> I think the only thing you can do with nuts is survive them. Seems to be working with the homophobes. Worth giving a go in the case of the more entrenched racism and sexism.
14:38 < Pharos> do any non-wikipedians dress in one color?
14:38 < Steven_Zhang> ANI is where we kill people, Elduen
14:38 < Elduen> >.<
14:38 < Pharos> i haven't encountered this phenomenon elsewhere actually

14:39 < WilliamH_UK> BarkingFish super
14:39 < Tony_Sidaway> She has been mistaken for a very pretty male goth, but she is not a goth.
14:39 < Pharos> anyway, black doesnt count, everyone in ny wears black too
14:40 < Tony_Sidaway> I wear black too, come to think of it. But usually a white shirt because black shirts are rare.
14:40 < mareklug> incl. the Orthodox
14:40 < Pharos> i guess white shouldn't count either
14:41 < Steven_Zhang> oh wow
14:41 < Tony_Sidaway> So does anybody who is not a goth wear a single colour that is not black or white?
14:41 < Steven_Zhang> gold medals are actually not gold.

14:56 < kim_bruning> hello guerilleroohai
14:56 < Tony_Sidaway> Redirect and merge.
14:56 < heatherw> Isarra: yes?

15:10 < BarkingFish> just found this, i've marked it as being in Tagalog, which I'm pretty sure it is - I just wanted a speaker to verify that i'm correct - google translate won't help me, it thinks it's Indonesian :P

15:24 < mareklug> SteveMobile:  they wouls show up with a search warrant, not storm it.  UK can invoke its law suspending exterritoriality of any embassy
15:24 < SteveMobile> Well the embassy is Ecuadorean soil.
15:24 < kim_bruning> Isarra, Oh, that's that old problem
15:25  * foks is fairly sure the UK would probably beat Ecuador in a war
15:25 < Apheori> Which, laziness?
15:25 < SteveMobile> Not the point.
15:25 < kim_bruning> Isarra, oooohhh, killerchihuahua is not being entirely AGF
15:25 < mareklug> UK would beat Ecuador in football too
15:25 < mareklug> except maybe in Quito
15:25 < kim_bruning> Apheori, that problem too
15:25 < BarkingFish> SteveMobile, correction - the INSIDE of the Embassy is Ecuadoran soil - the land it's built on is still british soil.
15:26 < kim_bruning> SteveMobile, if the UK doesn't want the vienna convention to apply to them, then by all means they can storm the embassy
15:26 < foks> I love how, out of all countries, he picked Ecuador
15:26 < kim_bruning> SteveMobile, after that, everyone else may  storm the UK embassies at will

15:26 < BarkingFish> If the government choose to revoke the Embassy's diplomatic status, it simply reverts to being a building on British Soil, which the police can walk into unhindered
15:26 < kim_bruning> including risk of getting into fisticuffs with the UK
15:26 < mareklug> http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Global-News/2012/0816/Ecuadorians-rally-around-decision-to-offer-asylum-for-Assange   <-- looks like the  ppl like it
15:26 < SteveMobile> BarkingFish: I think that's be unwise
15:26 < kim_bruning> BarkingFish, yes, but there's the slight problem of that being kind of Not Done in international law
15:27 < foks> It's really weird - this whole thing is *really good* for Ecudoran politics
15:27 < Tony_Sidaway> Julian wossname will probably smuggle himself out of the embassy disguised as a small bear that loves marmalade.
15:27 < Tony_Sidaway> Or is that Peru?
15:27 < foks> they're united in disapproval of the UK
15:27 < kim_bruning> lots of people LOVE wikileaks
15:27 < foks> Tony_Sidaway, ahaha!
15:27 < kim_bruning> especially in 2nd and 3rd world countries
15:27 < BarkingFish> the problem with that is, that if the british government revoke the embassy's diplomatic status, then the chances are that other countries may try the same shit with our embassies overseas
15:27 < SteveMobile> Someone at a dinner when I told them
15:28 < SteveMobile> I work for wikipedia

15:39 < Isarra> Elduen: There is an option to hide the article feedback thing on pages. Try checking that box under Appearance.
15:39 < Elduen> "Note: Registered users may disable this feature by going to My preferences→Appearance, and checking the "Don't show the Article feedback widget on pages " box."
15:39 < Elduen> According to [[Wikipedia:Article Feedback Tool]]
15:40 < Isarra> Did you already do that?
15:40 < Elduen> Yay!
15:40 < Elduen> I just did.
15:40 < foks> sonia, this building has, like, a really thin base
15:40 < foks> it's like someone stuck a pencil in the ground
15:40 < Isarra> Whee.
15:40 < BarkingFish> Any admins on the prowl, would you please be so kind as to deal with http://enwp.org/User:Twhitguy14 - he/she is creating a load of garbage articles, all of which are getting hit for speedy.  I've just dropped him a 4im for creating inappropriate pages

15:42 < Elduen> Yeah, but manually typing Special:Contributions/Username violates my laziness.
15:42 < sonia> like on the same street I found a camera shop selling my flash for $400 and it's only really worth like $70
15:42 < Isarra> There isn't a link?
15:42 < sonia> was pondering selling it back to them lol
15:42 < Isarra> I see a link.
15:42 < BarkingFish> Elduen, linking people unnecessarily when they have a keyboard violates my patience :P

15:44 < BarkingFish> Elduen, unsalvageably incoherent is simply a polite way of saying "a blind monkey could probably do this better without a dictionary"
15:44 < Elduen> One thing I've learned about Wikipedia is that there are many templates.

15:45 < Isarra> Yes.

15:45 < Elduen> Oh.
15:45 < Isarra> Right where it's supposed to be.
15:45 < Elduen> The toolbox that's collapsed by default.
15:45 < Elduen> Which it shouldn't be. Can I fix that?
15:45 < Isarra> Uncollapse it and it should remember.
15:46 < Elduen> Joy.
15:46 < Isarra> Although yes, that's stupid.
15:46 < kim_bruning> BarkingFish, what would Ironholds say?

15:49 < Isarra> And Elduen, there are so many templates I had to write myself a js to collapse the list of templates that appears when editing things just so I could get past it. >.>
15:49 < Elduen> ^^;
15:49 < BarkingFish> sonia, it might be better than WWJD :)  At least with Ironholds, you do get a sensible suggestion
15:49 < Isarra> I'll grant this was mostly for commons, but enwp is pretty bad too.
15:49 < kim_bruning> BarkingFish, "a blind monkey could probably do this better without a dictionary"
15:49 < sonia> BarkingFish, most of the time I'm fairly sure it would be "make a witty comment"
15:50 < kim_bruning> BarkingFish, and also an amusing one.
15:50 < Isarra> Elduen: Guess how many templates this uses. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DzKK_BG_(58).jpg
15:50 < BarkingFish> he'd probably agree with me, kim_bruning
15:50 < Elduen> Before opening the file?
15:50 < Elduen> I guess seven.
15:50 < kim_bruning> BarkingFish, wouldn't he be able to emphsize it?
15:51 < Isarra> Elduen: 40.
15:51 < Elduen> Three.
15:51 < Elduen> What?
15:51 < BarkingFish> I don't know, kim_bruning

15:51  * Elduen clicks edit, scrolls down.
15:51 < Elduen> o.o
15:51 < BarkingFish> I'm used to compacting and simplifying things, kim_bruning
15:51 < Isarra> The templates are nested and whatnot, largely for translability, but the end result is scary.
15:52 < Elduen> That image has so many templates, I now need some lunch.
15:52 < kim_bruning> BarkingFish, maybe you're right and he couldn't make it more fun ;-)
15:52 < Demiurge1000> Wonder if "Peter Holm, Legal Intern, Wikimedia Foundation" will work for Assange after he works for WMF.  His former username would seem to be a good starting point :)

15:55 -!- WilliamH_UK [~WilliamH_@Wikipedia/WilliamH] has quit []
15:55 < sonia> nope.
15:55 < Sven_Manguard> The difference between Ironholds and Jimbo is that Ironholds has a slightly smaller ego and is significantly better at hiding it.
15:56 < sonia> eh, not sure about that
15:56 < Isarra> I have nothing polite to say to that.
15:56 < Fluffernutter> also fluffier hair
15:56 < Elduen> Well, TIL about ?uselang.
15:56 < Sven_Manguard> Also, when Ironholds talks about things other than free culture, he comes across as less of an idiot than Jimbo. Jimbo cannot talk about anything other than free culture without coming across as a fourth grader trying to engage in policy debate based off of listening to half a Fox News report.
15:57 < sonia> it seems to be a common problem with the highly intelligent that their ego is a wee bit bipolar - self worth  is low as all hell, but they come across as arrogant
15:57 < Sven_Manguard> You're right, I have very low self worth.
15:57 < Sven_Manguard> (You see what I did there)
15:57 < Elduen> Highly intelligent people have greater self-esteem problems?
15:57 < sonia> <_<

15:58 < Isarra> Sven_Manguard: Dirty?
15:58 < Isarra> What?
15:58 < sonia> it's a bit of a swing between "oh for fuck's sake you people why don't you understand this" and "christ I'm so smart I really should be better than this, I'm useless"
15:58 < Isarra> How is this dirty?
15:58 < Sven_Manguard> merge your lang
15:58 < noommos> Is there an associated log event for Article feedback posts?
15:58 < Isarra> This means rtl languages have more proper support!
15:58 < Sven_Manguard> noommos: if it exists, I haven't found it yet
15:58 < Sven_Manguard> Isarra: hell yeah proper support :P
15:58 < Isarra> And variable support!
15:58  * Sven_Manguard will stop now
15:58 < Moe_Epsilon> i've always wondered but never asked, is there a particular reason the <ref> and </ref> tags aren't within citation templates?
15:58 < Isarra> Variability is sexy.
15:59 < Demiurge1000> sonia: I think Scott Adams had some term for it, but I forget what
15:59 < noommos> Sven: only seems to log actions
15:59 < sonia> Moe_Epsilon, because some people have non-inline citations formatted with those
15:59  * Isarra dunks Sven_Manguard.
15:59 < Sven_Manguard> Moe_Epsilon: Yes, because if the citation template breaks, then it won't break *all* the references on display
15:59 < Demiurge1000> sonia: The idea being, the more thick people are, the less they realise they're thick...
15:59 < sonia> Demiurge1000, I've met many highly intelligent people and this seems ot be the trend.

16:19 < Apheori> Drunk people tend to vary more - some otherwise good editors will vandalise while drunk.
16:19 < Sven_Manguard> BarkingFish: I'm not an admin, I can't see deleted contribs
16:19 < Apheori> Others will be total dicks at anyone or anything they encounter...
16:19 < Sven_Manguard> unless it's Commons
16:19 < Demiurge1000> EggCentric is one of the few that is often quite clear and open about when he is, or has been, editing while drunk. Picked up a few blocks for it as well, I think
16:19 < Apheori> Other still can actually become nicer while drunk.
16:20 < BarkingFish> I'm tending to lean towards the possibility their account's being misused - they look like they were doing good work, but their last few pieces have not been in their writing style, and they've been utter cobblers
16:20 < GorillaWarfare> Compromised account?
16:20 < BarkingFish> I'm happy to AGF, that's why I'm not immediately suggesting they're a vandal - i have warned for creating inappropriate pages thoguh.
16:20 < BarkingFish> GorillaWarfare, it's quite possible
16:21 < BarkingFish> since you're an admin, you may be able to see the difference between their styles on the stuff which still exists, and the things that got speedied on the 16th
16:21 < GorillaWarfare> The stuff on the 16th was pure vandalism
16:21 < BarkingFish> i have no hesitation in suggesting that they may not be written by the same person
16:22 < GorillaWarfare> Keymashing and a joke page
16:22 < BarkingFish> yeah, exactly.  Go back to the 15th and it was relatively good

16:24 < BarkingFish> again, I can't see those contribs, GW, but the possibility is still there
16:24 < GorillaWarfare> Well, it's fair to block him if it's compromised
16:24 < Demiurge1000> if it's compromised, then it gets blocked

16:24 < Elduen> Ooh, WP disallows images, templates, and external links in sigs. I like this.
16:24 < BarkingFish> Demiurge1000, do we need to prove it's compromised though?
16:24 < BarkingFish> or can it be on reasonable suspicion?
16:25 < Demiurge1000> not if it's turned vandalism-only ... but that seems not the case, just yet

16:25 < Tony_Sidaway> He's probably just bored. Some people look at Wikipedia and get a bad impression and become vandalistic.
16:25 < Elduen> As a complete noob to WP, does it even matter whether the account is compromised? If it's vandalizing, block it either way.
16:26 < BarkingFish> Tony_Sidaway, if he's bored, it looks like manic boredom. Some stuff is brilliant, other stuff he's posted is giblets in the nth degree
16:26 < GorillaWarfare> Elduen: He's also making good edits
16:26 < Elduen> Right, but that doesn't excuse vandalism, does it?
16:26 < BarkingFish> I don't think if he intended to contribute properly, he'd vandalize in his downtime, or his other stuff would be liable to get knobbled too
16:26 < Apheori> You could block it and demand an explanation on the talkpage...
16:26 < Apheori> Of course, you could do that without blocking it too.
16:27 < GorillaWarfare> Elduen: No, but it could just warrant a warning instead of a block
16:27 < BarkingFish> Apheori, as Demiurge1000 says though - blocking on suspicion is not always a good idea
16:27 < Elduen> Well yeah

16:27 < GorillaWarfare> Elduen: Warning before the block, I mean
16:27 < Demiurge1000> not always
16:27 < Apheori> BarkingFish: Nonsense! Blocking is always a good idea! In face we should block everyone!
16:27 < Sven_Manguard> oh, hey GorillaWarfare
16:27 < GorillaWarfare> Heya Sven_Manguard
16:28 < Earwig> I had a horrible dream a few nights ago where I vandalized the site for some reason I don't even know
16:28 < BarkingFish> if we can prove the account is compromised, GW - and at the moment, I am almost certain it is.  But since I can't put that 100% on it, I have to AGF and say it's possible he's left himself logged in, and someone has misused his account
16:28 < Earwig> got blocked and desysopped
16:28 < Earwig> it was the worst thing ever
16:28 < Elduen> Let's start with Apheori.
16:28 < BarkingFish> Elduen, +1 to that :)
16:28 < GorillaWarfare> BarkingFish: I would guess that as well, except for the random vandalism on the 10th as well
16:29 < Apheori> Fine, block all my alternate accounts, then. Meanies.
16:29 < Elduen> We do it out of love.
16:29 < BarkingFish> could be that he lives with other people, and he could have left himself logged in on more than one occasion
16:29 < GorillaWarfare> Perhaps
16:29 < Elduen> BarkingFish: But then, isn't it still his responsibility to secure his account?
16:30 < BarkingFish> I've done that before, thankfully been able to stop it though - I left myself logged in on my tpi admin account from my local library one day, and it was only a rapidly placed phone call to the library manager that stopped someone misusing it
16:30 < BarkingFish> Elduen, yes, it is.  But things do slip from people's minds, everyone forgets stuff once in a while

17:58 < openstrings> I haven't met her irl
17:58 < kim_bruning> typically we all just bring recorders, they're small and light :-P
17:58 < openstrings> kim_bruning, openstrings = strings that are not held down w/ fingers at the time
17:58 < kim_bruning> for some values of typically that involve "once a year"
17:59 < kylu> (openstrings: next time you visit, remind me to bring my cello and violin)
17:59 < kim_bruning> openstrings, OH!, so you get just the basic notes :-)
17:59 < openstrings> yup!
17:59 < kim_bruning> kylu, openstrings has visited you?
17:59 < openstrings> kim_bruning, melodicas! they're great fun!
17:59 < jorm> Tony_Sidaway: eclipse is rank awesome once you get it configured for your workflow.  that's it's problem, though: it's too configurable.
17:59 < openstrings> and small
17:59 < kim_bruning> openstrings, I pleay keyboard mostly, decent on recorder, suck at flute
17:59 < kim_bruning> play even
17:59 < jorm> also, once you have a good eclipse config, you just move that entire binary tree around with you.
17:59 < kylu> nobody visits a kylu, evar.
17:59 < openstrings> jorm, it's just getting started using it and all, being that every single combination of a command-key and any other key will do something pretty much
17:59 < kim_bruning> and more play with than play as a pro musician or anything
17:59 < jorm> much like every tomcat configuration i've EVER done.
17:59 < SigmaWP> openstrings: Try vim
18:00 < SigmaWP> Everyone other than me likes it
18:00 < kim_bruning> I think jorm could do guitar (even just judging by his looks)
18:00 < jorm> here's why eclipse rules for java:
18:00 < Tony_Sidaway> jorm: pretty much. It's nice to wander into a workplace where they _know_ Eclipse and they just have it set up for the job at hand.
18:00 < openstrings> emacs came with this thing and I was like "what is this how do I use it"
18:00 < kim_bruning> jorm, next wikimania, taking an instrument?
18:00 < jorm> it will cut down your development time by 70%,  i guarantee.
18:00 < lahwran> is everyone here friends with everyone?

18:30 < Tony_Sidaway> Some fan material is great for the fan wikis, but doesn't necessarily work so well in an encyclopedia.

18:31 < LtNOWIS> Not having a wiki on such a big franchise would be inconcievable on Wikia
18:31 < LtNOWIS> Really? I heard it was boilerplate genericness.
18:31 < Tony_Sidaway> One of the issues I recall with Potter timelines is that Rowling's timeline ends in 1997 or whatever, whereas the films have quite sensibly set them in the present day. You've got the Millennium Eye and the Wobbly Bridge and the Gherkin, all landmarks that have appeared since 1999.

18:34 < Tony_Sidaway> The Millennium Bridge was closed shortly after opening because it was too much fun.
18:34 < mattbuck> it's not thrilly though
18:34 < LtNOWIS> meanwhile, the Hunger Games works best as a multi-media agglomeration, since the books are to a large degree about media and celebrity and stuff.
18:34 < Tony_Sidaway> They had the engineers come back and suck some of the fun out of it, before the public could be allowed to use it.
18:34 < mattbuck> it's generally slow, interspersed with overlong fight sequences with shaky cameras which mean you can't see what's happening

18:35 < Tony_Sidaway> I was surprised at the Hunger Games. Never have I gone into a film with such low expectations, and come out pleased that I went to see it.
18:36 < mattbuck> hunger games was very good
18:36 < mattbuck> shame book #3 was a bit meh
18:36 < LtNOWIS> dunno why your expectations would be low.
18:36 < LtNOWIS> But then criticizing your past assumptions would serve no purpose
18:36 < mattbuck> it was a slightly less violent battle royale really
18:37 < LtNOWIS> I pretty much fell victim to the hype and saw it a few weeks after release
18:37 < LtNOWIS> or something
18:38 < Tony_Sidaway> LtNOWIS: I didn't like the hype, but my daughter fancied seeing it.

18:47 < kim_bruning> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Page_Curation#sort_order_.2F_too_speedy_deletion
18:47 < kim_bruning> I'
18:47 < kim_bruning> m trying to explain that NPP needs to be FIFO for crying out loud
18:47 < Tony_Sidaway> But that wasn't even the best Joss Whedon film I saw this year, though it's very good.
18:48 < LtNOWIS> Yeah I gotta see Cabin in the Woods because everyone apparently loved it
18:48 < kim_bruning> newest first scores people points in some way, but it doesn't actually efficiently work for NPP :-/
18:48 < Tony_Sidaway> Whedon's Cabin in the Woods could well be the best film I saw this year.
18:48 < LtNOWIS> Avengers was like the perfect example of a superhero film, but I don't think it transcended the genre
18:48 < mattbuck> it was a pretty meh film
18:49 < mattbuck> not as good as any of the individual avengers' films
18:49 < Tony_Sidaway> I don't even know what genre Cabin in the Woods is supposed to be. It was funny and it made me jump, and I liked the Scooby Doo touch.
18:50 < LtNOWIS> personally I was pretty underwhelmed by the Dark Knight Rises myself
18:50 < LtNOWIS> so I can relate on the "man everyone loved this but I'm not seeing it" front
18:51 < Tony_Sidaway> I don't bother with Batman films. I just don't like the whole vigilante vibe.
18:51 < mattbuck> i enjoyed it
18:51 < mattbuck> rated it v3/5
18:52 < Tony_Sidaway> My kids took me to see Batman Begins once. I walked out after ten minutes or so. Nothing there for me.
18:53 < LtNOWIS> he didn't start vigilantying by that point, I don't think.
18:53 < LtNOWIS> that was just him fighting ninjas in China or whatever

18:55 < mattbuck> were his parents even dead by then?>
18:55 < mattbuck> actually, 10mins, the opening credits probably hadn't ended yet
18:56 < GrenBaykre> Is it really true that them white statues from ancient Greek or whatever were actually full of tasteless colours and it is only due to time passing that they have paled into white?
18:56 < LtNOWIS> yeah I don't think that was shown except in flashbacks
18:56 < LtNOWIS> Yes, that is true
18:56 < kim_bruning> GrenBaykre, afaik, yes
18:56 < kim_bruning> GrenBaykre, not necessarily tasteless
18:56 < LtNOWIS> For example that's how the Parthenon in Nashville is painted.
18:56 < kim_bruning> anyway, could someone sanity check me in this convo with Ironholds?
18:56 < Tony_Sidaway> Yeah. I think the China thing was about where I left.
18:56 < kim_bruning> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Page_Curation#sort_order_.2F_too_speedy_deletion
18:56 < jorm> kim_bruning: you're one voice in many.
18:56 < GrenBaykre> :/
18:57 < kim_bruning> jorm, what does that mean?
18:57 < Tony_Sidaway> I just don't like it.
18:57 < LtNOWIS> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Athena_Parthenos_LeQuire.jpg
18:57 < kim_bruning> jorm, it's not really relevant
18:57 < jorm> it means that many other people have convinced me the opposite.
18:57 < kim_bruning> jorm, okay, on what grounds?
18:57 < jorm> my original design had it going from the back of the queue.
18:57 < kim_bruning> jorm, that makes sense to me too
18:57 < jorm> but several people argued otherways.
18:57 < jorm> and i found the arguments compelling.
18:57 < kim_bruning> jorm, what was the argument?
18:57 < jorm> sec.
18:58 -!- Froodband is now known as Frood
18:58 < kim_bruning> LtNOWIS, hmm, not more tasteful?
18:58 < Tony_Sidaway> GrenBaykre: unlike us the Ancient Greeks weren't brought up to expect statues to look like white marble. I guess they liked statues to look more like people.
18:59 < LtNOWIS> well that's a pretty good looking example
18:59 < LtNOWIS> and there's a lot of gold on there anyways
18:59 < LtNOWIS> but there are other examples where it'd look less good arguably
18:59 < kim_bruning> jorm, (you could also answer on wiki, to save time and all ;-)
19:00 < jorm> crap. i can't find the discussion now.
19:00 < Tony_Sidaway> In that shot, the building itself would be decorated too.
19:00 < kim_bruning> jorm, shoot
19:00 < kim_bruning> jorm, anyway, I was pretty much convinced oldest first was the only way to go
19:00 < jorm> so, here's the metaphor i used to explain it to someone else.
19:00 < jorm> say you're a janitor.
19:00 < kim_bruning> right?
19:00 < jorm> and you're in the bathroom, and there's lots of work to do.
19:00 < BarkingFish> any passing admins - can you step on this please as G11 - the guy's already taken the speedy tag off it once... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AlphaDelta
19:00 < jorm> the most pressing work is going to be cleaning up the overflowing toilets.
19:01 < jorm> windexing the mirrors is not as big of a priority.
19:01 < BarkingFish> it has no proper references, no sourcing, it's an advert at the moment.
19:01 < kim_bruning> jorm, sure
19:01 < CoalBalls> BarkingFish: When the speedy gets removed let me add it :D
19:01 < jorm> now, if we think of articles at the back of the queue, they have a lot in common.
19:01 < jorm> they're not OBVIOUSLY bad.
19:01 < GrenBaykre> Tony_Sidaway: It kind of... ruins... a lot... for me.
19:01 < jorm> if they were, they'd have been handled.

19:02 < kim_bruning> jorm, how do you know they've been dealt with previously?
19:02 < jorm> NEW patrollers start at the front, where the sewage is.
19:03 < kim_bruning> jorm, why does the queue have that form?
19:03 < kim_bruning> you're assuming a particular form
19:03 < Tony_Sidaway> GrenBaykre: well I guess you need to fire up the DeLorean and go back and tell those Greeks they were doing it wrong! :)
19:03 < jorm> the usage pattern we observed is that people start in the front with the largest block of unreviewed pages.
19:03 < kim_bruning> I'd rather new patrollers really didn't start at the front ever. That's what stops the wiki from working
19:03 < kim_bruning> jorm, yes?
19:04 < kim_bruning> jorm, and is that actually a good idea?
19:04 < kim_bruning> jorm, or is that an artifact of the software?
19:04 < sonia> new patrollers grab stuff at the front which is easy.
19:04  * kim_bruning argues the latter
19:04 -!- Zedx [~bandit@ppp-71-133-120-36.dsl.irvnca.pacbell.net] has quit [Client Quit]
19:04 < kim_bruning> sonia, that's because of the way the current system works
19:04 < sonia> the catch is that new patrollers are often idiots who've just migrated from huggle and have the same "we gotta delete it in 10 seconds" attitude.
19:04 < kim_bruning> I don't think the current system should be retained
19:04 < jorm> sec.  afk.
19:04 < kim_bruning> sonia, that's indeed the catch
19:05 < Tony_Sidaway> What's the purpose of this new curation system?
19:05 < sonia> and they'd just give up if they saw the harder ones at the end
19:05 < kim_bruning> jorm, sonia is explaining too
19:05 < sonia> no, I'm not :P
19:05 < sonia> I'm just making an observation
19:05 < sonia> at the same time I much prefer to patrol from the start
19:05 < kim_bruning> sonia, but why does the queue have that form?
19:05 < sonia> because I can help people out who're making it now

19:06 < kim_bruning> yeah, but that's an artifact of having newest first
19:06 < sonia> on simple where the admins have things deleted within minutes of its creation as there's an RC feed that can actually be watched
19:06 < Tony_Sidaway> Seems to me that a triage system of some sort would work with a seeded pseudo-random list for each user.

19:06 < sonia> I used to just expand really quickly before the admins could delete
19:06 < Tony_Sidaway> THis guarantees maximum coverage.
19:06 < kim_bruning> you keep mentioning we need newest first "because we're dealing with artifacts caused by newest first"
19:06 < sonia> ref
19:06 < sonia> well, that, but the immediacy is important too
19:07 < sonia> youc an't communicate with someone who's long gone
19:07 < sonia> and will never be back
19:07 < sonia> you can however explain COI and rope them in properly
19:07 < kim_bruning> yes
19:07 < sonia> if you engage them right then
19:07 < kim_bruning> sure
19:07 < sonia> I'm a people person ;p
19:07 < kim_bruning> but they're long gone at the back of the not-queue-but-stack
19:07 < kim_bruning> because you're treating it like a stack to begin with
19:07 < kim_bruning> the people at the bottom get popped only irregularly
19:08 < kim_bruning> if it gets treated as a proper queue, you'd get to them much quicker
19:08 < LtNOWIS> Shouldn't this have gotten another relist? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Miss_Model_of_the_World_2001
19:08 < Tony_Sidaway> kim_bruning: what do you think of my per-user random order idea?
19:08 < LtNOWIS> Not that I care that much
19:08 < sonia> people at the bottom usually have really hard articles to patrol.
19:08 < kim_bruning> Tony_Sidaway, that makes more sense than newest first
19:08 < sonia> cases where you have no fucking idea what they're doing or if it's notable or not
19:08 < kim_bruning> sonia, WHY are they at the bottom?
19:08 < sonia> often math theorem articles
19:08 < kim_bruning> sonia, they're at the bottom because you're treating it like a stack
19:08 < sonia> because who the hell can tell if they're correct? not  me
19:09 < kim_bruning> sonia, it's an artifact of how you are patrolling
19:09 < kim_bruning> you're causing those articles to be hard
19:09 < kim_bruning> (statistically speaking)
19:09 < sonia> kim_bruning, yes, they are, but it became a queue they'd still end up sitting there for ages just that new patrollers would see those first when they load it
19:09 < sonia> and have to go past several pages that other patrollers have gone "eh, no, next page"
19:09 < sonia> before seeing something they thought "now, I know what policy applies to that, I can do this"
19:10 < kim_bruning> I'd be very happy if people never went ""now, I know what policy applies to that, I can do this"
19:10 < kim_bruning> because much of that can be done by bots ;-)
19:10 < sonia> not necessarily!

19:10 < kim_bruning> true, but in general
19:10 < sonia> and - bots aren't people and that's both a plus and a minus.
19:10 < kim_bruning> indeed
19:10 < sonia> we're already a bit detached. all our templatery.
19:10 -!- MC8 [~herpes@wikimedia/Microchip08] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
19:10 < CoalBalls> We Need Bots
19:10 < sonia> new users as well as new patrollers need something that's not a grey-area-thing to work on.
19:11 < CoalBalls> I am going to write another one, in fact
19:11 < kim_bruning> how come?
19:11 < kim_bruning> Perhaps it's a good idea
19:11 < sonia> because it's discouraging if everything is bloody difficult.
19:11 < kim_bruning> because then people will work on consensus
19:11 < sonia> and what, we become more insular for lack of newbies having anythign they can understand?
19:12 < sonia> if we end up being a community that delegates anything black and white to bots
19:12 < kim_bruning> that's an interesting argument
19:12 < sonia> how will people assimilate?
19:12 < kim_bruning> I have the opposite view
19:12 < sonia> that's how I train adoptees. find AfCs that are clearly spam.
19:12 < sonia> or whatever.
19:12 < Demiurge1000> Assimilation is unavoidable, sonia. You will become one with the bots.
19:12 < Tony_Sidaway> They Will All Be Assimilated.
19:12 < sonia> get them into it before giving them ones that are a bit more nuanced.
19:12 < kim_bruning> I think that having new people patrol the front end of the page queue
19:12 < kim_bruning> is the one thing that is harful to the wiki
19:12 < sonia> well, yep.
19:12 < kim_bruning> because they're not sure what they're doing
19:13 < kim_bruning> and they hurt other newbies
19:13 < sonia> more importantly, they're *too* sure what they're doing ;)
19:13 < kim_bruning> and chase them away
19:13 < jorm> back.
19:13 < Demiurge1000> kim_bruning: That's why WMF employs Kudpung, to deal with that problem. Oh... wait :)
19:13 < jorm> so, okay.  my ORIGINAL idea was that each patroller's queue was *unique* and *randomized*
19:13 < Tony_Sidaway> It becomes a game. Squash as many bad articles as you can.
19:13 < kim_bruning> so if there's one thing I'd like to prevent, is inexperienced users patrolling from the front of the queue
19:13 < sonia> but where you have people like me, helpdeskers, who patrol new articles as soon as they pop up
19:13 < Tony_Sidaway> jorm: that sounds like what I was saying.
19:13 < kim_bruning> jorm, thinking like Tony! ;-)
19:13 < jorm> and we were going into more of a triage system.
19:13 < sonia> and leave notes for the author on how good or bad it was, what could be fixed, "you can contact me here"
19:13 < jorm> (hence the name "Page Triage")
19:13 < sonia> that's a good thing having the new first.
19:14 < BarkingFish> Can I have an admin please?  http://enwp.org/Alphadelta - I've warned this guy now not to remove the G11 tags, second time he's done it despite a clear warning on the article's talk page
19:14 < jorm> there were technical limitations.
19:14 < kim_bruning> sonia, heh, wouldn't it be cool if you had tools for that in that toolbox that's being provided? :-)
19:14 < Tony_Sidaway> BarkingFish: editors are allowed to remove CSD tags.
19:14 < sonia> I haven't edited in a wee while :) the old PTSD has been fucking with me
19:14 < sonia> but maybe I should.
19:14 < BarkingFish> no they're not.  Not when they're the author of the article, Tony_Sidaway
19:14 < sonia> get back into all the New Things
19:14 < Tony_Sidaway> Oh fiddling silly rules.

19:15 < BarkingFish> "If this article does not meet the criteria for speedy deletion, or you intend to fix it, please remove this notice, but do not remove this notice from pages that you have created yourself. "
19:15 < Tony_Sidaway> I would remove a CSD tag if some arsehole stuck one on my article.
19:15 < kim_bruning> sonia, I can see why running newest first is useful to you. I'm not sure what part is due to the method in the first place though
19:15 < BarkingFish> tough shit, you'd be breaking the rules then, Tony_Sidaway :)  I told the guy already not to take it off
19:15 < kim_bruning> BarkingFish, try to see if the article can be fixed?
19:15 < sonia> it's kinda a "help them before they start feeling they're on their own"
19:15 < Tony_Sidaway> BarkingFish: so it's a "please do not".

19:16 < kim_bruning> jorm, right, but what convinced you to make newest first the default?
19:16 < Tony_Sidaway> People use software and this fact is usually verifiable.
19:17 < jorm> the argument about quickly removing potentially legal threats from the site.
19:17 < Demiurge1000> Yes, editors must be prevented from making legal threats at all costs. WP:NLT!
19:17 < kim_bruning> jorm, I'm not sure how that would work
19:17 < jorm> now, if we can get the NOINDEX code working again, maybe it might be worth revisiting that decision.
19:17 < kim_bruning> jorm, since we're talking about a stack
19:18 < kim_bruning> jorm, wouldn't a bunch of those threats just sit at the bottom of the stack forever?
19:18 < kim_bruning> (if we can't get the stack cleared out)
19:18 < jorm> i'm talking about pages that are nothing more than "THIS BITCH IS MY EX GIRLFRIEND AND SHE SUCKS ANY COCK HERE'S HER PHONE NUMBER"
19:18 < kim_bruning> jorm, yes
19:18 < jorm> or "Hi, I'm tracey, and i'm 12, here's my phone number"
19:18 < kim_bruning> jorm, and if we have a stack, won't that sit at the bottom of the stack?
19:18 < kim_bruning> jorm, yes, that could sit at the bottom of the stack too
19:19 < jorm> no, because *those* threats get nuked from orbit with high efficiency.
19:19 < kim_bruning> jorm, how do you guarantee
19:19 < Tony_Sidaway> Ah, just realised I was running rake distclean before rake build. Yes, that'll slow things down a bit in the debug cycle.
19:19 < kim_bruning> jorm, because, they get found... how?
19:19 < jorm> becauase they're at the top of the stack.

19:20 < Tony_Sidaway> I wouldn't leave that to generic patrolling.
19:20 < jorm> funnily, we can't do that, tony.
19:20 < jorm> (the wmf)
19:20 < jorm> we can provide software that will allow the community to do that, though.
19:20 < jorm> abuse filter.
19:21 < kim_bruning> jorm, so far you haven't told me why going top first isn't going to leave at least some of "Hi, I'm tracey, and i'm 12, here's my phone number" at the bottom of the stack
19:21 < kim_bruning> where it won't be found for ages
19:21 < kim_bruning> until siegenthaler comes across it.
19:21 < kim_bruning> (Although I know siegenthaler was actually patrolled)
19:21 < Tony_Sidaway> jorm: I don't see a distinction between flagging for attention and what you're talking about.
19:21 < jorm> okay.  so, i'm unsure if i can explain it any better.
19:21 < kim_bruning> if you take a queue, you can ensure that every item will be found
19:22 < kim_bruning> jorm, I can see some statisticalness floating around top first that might be interesting
19:22 < jorm> tony: if the wmf writes software that does seomthing like "auto flag if there's a phone number", we can lose our non-profit status.  we'll become content-editors and not publishers.
19:22 < kim_bruning> jorm, which I hadn't thought of before
19:22 < kim_bruning> jorm, so you didn't fail entirely
19:22 < jorm> but we can create software that allows *YOU* to write code that auto-flags.
19:22 < Tony_Sidaway> 1. bot grabs newpages, sees likely threat words, puts an invisible cat on or something. 2. Admin looks at it, removes tag or deletes page.
19:23 < jorm> sure.  and there's no reason why that couldn't be done today, i should think.
19:23 < kim_bruning> jorm, but otoh, there's a huge issue with top first rapid response killing the wiki-process, and making it mondo hard for new users to join

19:23 < jorm> kim, have you used the software?  because that's one of the things we're going for.  is to not be so bitey.  the templates we drop are different.  there are built-in gratitude tools.

19:24 < kim_bruning> jorm, ha, I don't want to insult you, but that was my first instinct
19:24 < kim_bruning> jorm, like "Oh, prettier templates, but they didn't kill newest first"
19:24 < Tony_Sidaway> "warning: variable 'hash' might be clobbered by 'longjmp' or 'vfork'" Ooh that's very thoughtful.
19:24 < kim_bruning> jorm, I now know there was some thought that went into it

19:25 < Tony_Sidaway> One of my main complaints with the older languages is that they _still_ don't have proper closures.
19:25 < kim_bruning> jorm, I think newest first is one of the things killing the wiki. And I'm not exagerating
19:25 < kim_bruning> jorm, definitely not bicycle shed material here
19:25 < kim_bruning> jorm, of course, I can be convinced that it's not actually as big a problem as I thought it was
19:25 < Tony_Sidaway> algol 60 compilers had them more than 30 years ago, but C still doesn't.
19:26 < Demiurge1000> There is much less focus on the future development of the C programming language than there was ten years ago. :|
19:26 < kim_bruning> jorm, (if you scroll up, it's new users chasing away other new users, and too-rapid-deletion of articles still under construction . these two limit user growth and wiki growth)
19:27 < jorm> i think there are other things killing the wiki.  but that's me.
19:27 < kim_bruning> jorm, what do you identify as problems?
19:27 < Isarra> There are a lot of things killing it, but kim_bruning isn't wrong about things getting tagged too quickly not being good.
19:27 < jorm> the culture of edit count = superiority.
19:27 < jorm> the culture of brusqueness.
19:27 < kim_bruning> jorm, working on it. Didn't quite manage to delete RFA at wikimania
19:28 < Tony_Sidaway> Demiurge1000: Java and C++ have the same problems.
19:28 < kim_bruning> the culture of brusqueness wasn't there originally
19:28 < kim_bruning> that's something that's due to bad acculturation
19:28 < jorm> my Grande Plan has us creating a "safe harbor" namespace for new articles where they live before getting published.
19:28 < Demiurge1000> Both are still being developed, so all is not lost.
19:28 < Isarra> Pity we can't... reeducate users.

19:28 < Tony_Sidaway> jorm: I'm glad you're considering this seriously.
19:28 < kim_bruning> jorm, ever heard of nupedia?
19:28 < jorm> yes.  it's def. due to bad cultural norms reinforcing each other.
19:29 < Isarra> jorm: We considered that on uncyclopedia and people revolted.
19:29 < kim_bruning> jorm, so wales and sanger once set up nupedia
19:29 < Isarra> So please succeed.
19:29 < jorm> Tony_Sidaway: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Article_Creation_Workflow/Design
19:29 < kim_bruning> jorm, then they decided to create a  "safe harbor" namespace for new articles where they live before getting published.
19:29 < Isarra> I WANT TO RUB IT IN THEIR FACES.
19:29 < kim_bruning> jorm, they called it wikipedia
19:29 < Tony_Sidaway> I don't think "safe harbours" are good for articles at all. The whole of Wikipedia being safe for newcomers is what we need.
19:29 < Isarra> Wikipedia is no longer safe, kim_bruning.
19:29 < kim_bruning> jorm, I think at some point the nupedia server failed, and no-one noticed, wikipedia was more productive ;-)
19:29 < kim_bruning> jorm, you're proposing making a wikipedia for wikipedia ;-)
19:29 < kim_bruning> jorm, which... is not necessarily wrong
19:30 < kim_bruning> jorm, but a very strange thought indeed
19:30 < kim_bruning> maybe we could rename wikipedia 1 'nupedia'
19:30 < Tony_Sidaway> THis whole "Articles for Creation" thing is a waste of time, I think. ANybody can create an article, and we should concentrate on making sure newcomers know that.
19:30 < kim_bruning> and start wikipedia 2 from scratch
19:30 < kim_bruning> something like that
19:30 < kim_bruning> Isarra, tell me about it
19:30 < Tony_Sidaway> AfC makes them pass a bloody exam!
19:30 < kim_bruning> Isarra, it's not quite as bad as I thought. (I did some minor article rescue stuff recently)
19:31 < kim_bruning> Isarra, but it's still uncool
19:31 < jorm> afc is not as bad as the article creation wizard.
19:31 < jorm> that's like a Choose Your Own Adventure where every path leads to death.
19:31 < kim_bruning> so the patrol tools you're adding to the wiki proper make the wiki unsafe
19:31 < Isarra> Snrk.
19:31 < kylu> jorm: real life is like that.
19:32 < kim_bruning> I'll second the snrk
19:32 < Isarra> Better tools can make it safer if they get more people involved; more people can lead to less stupid.
19:32 < Isarra> Potentiallu.
19:32 < Isarra> y
19:32 < kim_bruning> Isarra, only if they can intercommunicate
19:32 < kim_bruning> and the smart ones teach the younger ones somehow
19:32 < Isarra> Yelling at each other in an RfC is communication!
19:33 < kim_bruning> Isarra, it's a start
19:33 < kim_bruning> but could people be nice to each other in an RFC?
19:33 < jorm> Don't understand me? I'll just repeat myself, only LOUDER.
19:33 < Tony_Sidaway> jorm: I might just steal that statement about the article creation wizard!
19:33 < jorm> feel free.
19:33 < kim_bruning> jorm, very occaisionally that works, else why would people do that?
19:33  * kim_bruning worries when tony starts stealing phrases like that ;-)
19:34 < Isarra> It works quite often, actually. o_O

19:41 < harej> FIFO is true accounting. LIFO is for cheating on your taxes.

19:42 < kim_bruning> used to?
19:42 < jorm> used to.
19:42 < kim_bruning> that sounds encouraging
19:43 < jorm> well.
19:43 < jorm> he had his own ideas as to how to engage editors.  and the rest of the foundation did not agree.  and so he left.
19:43 < kim_bruning> encouraginger and encouraginger
19:43 < jorm> like, run a central notice banner that says "edit this page!"
19:43 < kim_bruning> I see. I think
19:43 < jorm> which would absolutely increase edits, but not bring in the kind of editors we want, and would not be sustainable.
19:44 < jorm> and would largely serve to mostly piss off the existing community.
19:44 < Tony_Sidaway> If I can write a simple API bot that looks at newpages and generates pseudo-random feeds from a hash on the username, I don't see what's difficult about it.
19:44 < kim_bruning> jorm, I'm not entirely sure about that...
19:44 < jorm> ian was . . . resistant to implement things he didn't agree with.
19:44 < kim_bruning> jorm, ... it'd be interesting to do A/B studies
19:44 < kim_bruning> jorm, that could be trickier
19:44 < kim_bruning> jorm, now if he was a volunteer
19:44 < jorm> kim, i could increase our editor count by 10,000 within a week if i wanted to.

19:45 < kim_bruning> what people do we want to have?
19:45 < jorm> this is why it infuriates me when people say that the WMF only wants bodies.  any editor, we'll take them.

19:45 < kim_bruning> I want people who are willing to learn, really
19:46 < jorm> we have some metrics and markers about who is likely to be successful and who isn't
19:46 < Tony_Sidaway> Dammit, kim_bruning , there you go _listening to other people_ again! :)

19:46 < jorm> right.  we want people who are ready to learn.

22:56 < Sven_Manguard> I got it to work.
22:56 < Sven_Manguard> Just was doing it wrong.
22:56 < Riley_Huntley> What did you change?
22:56 < Tony_Sidaway> Mdann52: I can confirm that I am mad. I am rewriting the jump table of a VM to conform to strict C++ but remain efficient.
22:57 < Mdann52> ....................
22:59 < Isarra> ...why?
23:00 < Mdann52> Isarra, because he is mad
23:00 < Isarra> Apparently.

23:02 < Mdann52> Oh no......
23:02 < Mdann52> Not him :)
23:02 < Tony_Sidaway> Isarra: I want to know if it can be done.
23:03  * Isarra sticks Peter-C's thumb in her eye.
23:03 < Peter-C> :O
23:03 < Bsadowski1> :O
23:03 < Isarra> Ah.
23:03 < Tony_Sidaway> Modern compilers really ought to make it a close thing.

23:06 < Tony_Sidaway> Back in the 1980s I had a JIT concept that I never got around to trying. Now JIT compilers (which in those days didn't even have a name) are all the rage so I can have a go with my ideas on a real system.

23:07 < Tony_Sidaway> (JIT = "Just in time" --the idea of compiling certain code just ahead of execution for a speed boost).
