[03:01:16] <mrcoolbp> $burrito Subsentient
[03:01:16] * aqu4 chucks a nasty, rotten burrito at Subsentient
[03:12:01] <Subsentient> mrcoolbp: hi
[03:12:27] <mrcoolbp> yoyo
[03:12:57] <mrcoolbp> what can I do for you Subsentient?
[03:13:45] <Subsentient> mrcoolbp: How can I edit an article yet allow it to be signed off on by other editors?
[03:14:45] <mrcoolbp> Subsentient: if you dont' want it to "go live" like I said, you could uncheck display, maybe even leave a note that they should set to display once they've checked, but again, we're still only on dev, and no one will be double checking the stories there
[03:16:46] <Subsentient> mrcoolbp: yes, it's about getting the controls down
[03:17:02] <mrcoolbp> okay, did that help?
[03:17:43] <Subsentient> So the last guy who checks a story is responsible for editing it and publishing it/
[03:17:44] <Subsentient> ?
[03:19:12] <mrcoolbp> Subsentient: right now, editors keep "display" checked, the colors help us know which stories have been signed off on by more then one editor, occasionally stories go out that are still "red" though
[03:19:52] <Subsentient> mrcoolbp: So you just kinda hope that two more editors go and sign off and if not it goes live?
[03:20:04] <mrcoolbp> basically
[03:20:11] * Subsentient snarls
[03:20:30] <mrcoolbp> we try to keep the "presses rolling" so to speak
[03:20:35] <Subsentient> Ahh.
[03:21:39] <Subsentient> mrcoolbp: Alright then. So the time control is the main thing. The thing that bothers me also is many of the input boxes for the editor are not labeled with no obvious purpose
[03:23:24] <mrcoolbp> Subsentient: agreed, that is a hinderance to learning, we need to pester paulej72 about labeling those
[03:23:53] <mrcoolbp> could try TheMightyBuzzard too (not in this channel currently), or open up a github issue
[03:24:13] <mrcoolbp> I had mentioned it at some point, but like the editor team, the devs are overworked and understaffed
[03:24:35] <Subsentient> mrcoolbp: Now for the moment you can also do something else. You could OP aqu4 and deop everyone else, and she'd manage the channel. Dunno if that appeals to you, but it obviously appeals to me :^D
[03:25:11] <mrcoolbp> I don't think so = )
[03:25:13] <Subsentient> :^3
[03:25:18] <Subsentient> I didn't think so :^)
[03:25:36] <mrcoolbp> I just don't trust her shifty eyes
[03:25:49] <Subsentient> mrcoolbp: heheheheh
[03:25:59] * aqu4 grins ominously
[03:26:17] * mrcoolbp runs
[03:26:36] <Subsentient> mrcoolbp: So what now?
[03:26:53] <Subsentient> Oh, could you review the two top submissions of mine on dev.SN and see if it looks good to you?
[03:26:57] * mrcoolbp is doin' some admin-y stuff
[03:28:27] <mrcoolbp> Subsentient: not sure a whole lot of editing went into those submissions
[03:29:15] <Subsentient> mrcoolbp: Correct lol. I fixed a couple of things and the titles and missing punctuation but the rest looked fine
[03:29:53] <Subsentient> There is nothing else to edit. The rest of the stories are all derpisms filled with unicode tests.
[03:29:54] <mrcoolbp> yes, those look good
[03:30:58] <mrcoolbp> Subsentient: did you get any response from LamX yet?
[03:32:02] <Subsentient> mrcoolbp: Yes.
[03:32:19] <Subsentient> Want me to forward it to you? He didn't know you already started training and wanted to start it himself.
[03:33:21] <mrcoolbp> Subsentient: oh that's okay. no need to forward. Please let him know that he can do the training him self, that I just tried to set you up so you'd have a head start
[03:34:14] <Subsentient> Shit. Responded a few hours ago.
[03:34:15] <mrcoolbp> OR i CAN
[03:34:26] <mrcoolbp> no prob, I'll touch base with him
[03:34:29] <Subsentient> I'd be fine with you, since we already got started.
[03:46:36] <mrcoolbp> email sent to LamX

[20:06:18] <mrcoolbp> LaminatorX: did you get my email?
[20:06:49] * mrcoolbp is legitimately not sure due to weird cert stuff with mail yesterday
[20:09:20] <LaminatorX> I don't think so, let me double check.
[20:11:13] <LaminatorX> No, I've gotten nothing from you that I can tell.
[20:11:32] <mrcoolbp> hmm, lemme send to your personal mail
[20:11:53] <mrcoolbp> meh I can just tell youit was just a "Hey
[20:12:14] <mrcoolbp> "Hey, sorry shoulda chekced with you about Subsentient, was trying to help out"
[20:12:29] <mrcoolbp> Not sure what the procedure going forward should be with potential editors
[20:12:43] <LaminatorX> Gotcha. I was a little surprised by the pace of events, but no harm done.
[20:13:03] <mrcoolbp> well, more importantly, going forward I'd like to know what proper procedure is
[20:14:31] <LaminatorX> It would've been better to consult with me prior to getting him going on dev. I don't have a problem with his stuff, but I would likely have looked over his posts and chatted with him a bit before he got started.
[20:15:02] <mrcoolbp> that makes perfect sense
[20:15:06] <LaminatorX> I was hoping to catch him on here today, actually, but he hasn't been on.
[20:15:23] <mrcoolbp> okay, well apologies, I'll certainly check with you next time
[20:15:30] <LaminatorX> Sounds great.
[20:15:37] <mrcoolbp> Thank you sir.
