[16:56:43] <paulej72> Blackmoore: I have given you ed privs on prod
[17:22:37] <Blackmoore> oh!
[17:22:53] <Blackmoore> there it is
[17:38:02] <Blackmoore> and ok.
[17:43:57] <Blackmoore> n1 ok I see you've approved the hoveboard story, but I have more links to add.
[17:45:59] <Blackmoore> it is red; does that mean it's going live?
[17:46:49] <nick> yeah
[17:46:53] <paulej72> no it means only one ed has approved it. Green means that
[17:47:01] <nick> red will go live anyway
[17:47:08] <nick> but it's not been double checked
[17:47:48] <nick> the only time it wont go live is if it's grey
[17:48:23] <nick> red = one editor signed off ... yellow = only yourself signed off ... green = two editors signed off
[17:48:36] <nick> grey = not set to display
[17:49:43] <nick> Blackmoore, the two stories you just worked on appeared in the middle of the queue
[17:49:52] <nick> did you forget to change the times on them?
[17:50:55] <nick> if not, we were going to have 4 stories come out in very quick succession
[17:52:54] <nick> the Asimov story should be integrated with the one already set to go live later today
[17:53:12] <paulej72> hey guys we have two Asimov stories in the queue
[17:53:20] <nick> thats what im just talking about
[17:54:12] <nick> i'm assuming Blackmoore forgot to change the times on the stories he just did, and didnt happen to notice the asimov story already in queue
[17:54:18] <Blackmoore> yeah - it wasnt clear on dev how to adjust the time
[17:54:36] <Blackmoore> sorry.
[17:54:43] <Blackmoore> my fault
[17:54:53] <nick> no worries, i just happened to see it at the right time
[17:55:00] <paulej72> Blackmoore: if they are both in the subs queue you can merge them. If one is already a story you have to manyally merge them
[17:55:12] <nick> paulej72, one was put in the stories queue a while ago
[17:55:36] <paulej72> yeah that would mean a manual merge.
[17:55:37] <Blackmoore> i didnt see the live one. that's just me not quite looking in the right places
[17:55:47] <nick> so i'd suggest we copy over the hugh pickens one into the existing one and leave the new one greyed out
[17:55:57] <nick> if that makes sense
[17:56:07] <Blackmoore> sounds right to the newby
[17:56:24] <nick> or do it the other way around, if you want to put your name to it ;)
[17:57:24] <paulej72> just make sure to do it before one goes live :)
[17:58:07] <nick> Blackmoore, do you want to move things around or do you want me to?
[18:08:42] <Blackmoore> let me give a try

[18:09:41] <Azrael> nick: Hey, no letting him steal my story!
[18:10:01] <Azrael> got my eye on you Blackmoore ;)
[18:10:19] <nick> LOL
[18:10:31] <Blackmoore> wtf, i cant see the link for the other asimov story.

[18:10:59] <Blackmoore> ah found it
[18:11:34] <Blackmoore> heh. HOF dropped me from the submissions catagory.. suppose i'm an editor now :P
[18:12:06] <nick> Azrael, thanks for picking up the slack in my absence. Have been grinding at work, didnt even have the energy to even give SN a passing visit :(
[18:12:47] <Azrael> nick: that's ok, I'm sorry I've been contributing to the ed shortage the last few weeks
[18:13:20] <nick> is janrinok ok do you know?
[18:13:22] <Blackmoore> Azreal - i have to deal with something here at work. can you merge Hughs Azimov with the one you have approved?
[18:13:33] <Blackmoore> blasted work
[18:13:33] <Azrael> Blackmoore: yup :)
[20:30:21] * nick continues to scratch head at the america-politics-religion story
[20:39:59] <juggs> is that live yest or lurking in subs?
[20:40:15] <juggs> s/yest/yet/
[20:41:49] <nick> it's in the stories queue
[20:42:03] <nick> but is some hours from going live
[20:45:19] <Azrael> on that story, would it be a good idea to move some content from Intro copy into Extended copy?
[20:45:40] <Azrael> I'd suggest from TFA down
[20:49:01] <nick> im taking a second look
[20:49:33] <nick> on the google story you just did... the amazon link appears missing so i was thinking that sentence should just be removed
[20:49:38] <nick> unless i didnt comprehend it properly
[20:54:04] <nick> Azrael, i have updated the america-politics-religion summary
[21:23:31] <Azrael> nick: lemme look
[21:25:55] <Azrael> think I've fixed that now
[21:26:24] <nick> the google story?
[21:27:33] <Azrael> yar
[21:27:42] <Azrael> return of an amazon link
[21:29:48] <nick> awesome
[22:04:23] * juggs passes beers and snacks around the editors, just cos I have no clue how you manage to wrangle some of these submissions into sane shape and I'm glad it's not me doing it :)
[22:21:15] <nick> yay for beers and snacks
