[18:14:38] <janrinok> Eleven Arthur T stories in the 'Hold' queue.
[19:22:59] <takyon> ok who left that note on my sub
[19:23:24] <takyon> I already know that only editors can create tables... which is why I left the note saying I would turn the tab-separated data into a table
[19:26:07] <takyon> janrinok what "hints" were you talking about earlier
[19:30:22] <takyon> something about a CoolH*nd story
[19:34:03] <janrinok> takyon: what hints? when?
[19:34:34] <takyon> "CoolH*nd: just 2nd'ing your stories - I'm not sure that you read one of them closely - you left the hints from takyon suggesting which topics to include in the story! heheheh"
[19:35:08] <janrinok> you asked that we added techonomics to the story topics - CoolHand just printed the whole thing :)
[19:37:14] <takyon> oh yeah
[19:37:22] <takyon> did you make the note about tables on my sub?
[19:37:26] <janrinok> it left it included in the story
[19:37:37] <takyon> no this: https://soylentnews.org
[19:37:42] <exec> └─ 13SoylentNews Submissions
[19:38:05] <janrinok> yes - I wasn't sure whether you were saying that what you had included was meant to be a table, but if you change it you have to release it, and we don't usually release our own stories
[19:41:40] <takyon> it's just an edit.. as long as two others release the story it doesn't really matter
[19:41:56] <takyon> the problem is that if I tried to submit with the table code the system would strip it away
[19:41:57] <janrinok> OK, but the very act of editing it will release it
[19:42:05] <takyon> "two others release"
[19:42:33] <takyon> also releasing is symbolic since all stories that are set to display will run
[19:42:37] <janrinok> yes - I read that. But the very act of editing it will put you as the release name
[19:42:57] <janrinok> it might be 'symbolic' but the rules are there for a good reason
[19:46:46] <takyon> define release name
[19:46:52] <takyon> I thought that was the first person to post the story
[19:47:03] <janrinok> your name will go into the top right showing that you released the story
[19:47:27] <janrinok> you will be the first sign off
[19:47:33] <janrinok> that is the release
[19:48:47] <takyon> ok well like I said above I don't want to "release" the story. I just want to come in after it has been released and add the table..
[19:49:18] <janrinok> if you start 2nd'ing the other stories, I'll do the release but leave the work on the table for you
[19:49:52] <takyon> fair enough
[19:57:23] <takyon> did we have a story about that proxyham thing that was squashed by the FCC or the developers
[19:57:32] <janrinok> yes - I think so
[19:58:35] <takyon> yup, 3 days ago
[19:58:51] <takyon> I stuck a couple of links in the "Super Wi-Fi" story
[19:59:07] <takyon> one is our story on proxyham, and the other is a link to r/darknetplan
[19:59:27] <janrinok> k thx
[20:00:11] <janrinok> your tick-tock story is in the story queue
[20:01:33] <takyon> I'm going to see if I can cut anything from the Polymers story
[20:01:51] <janrinok> You wait till you see the whole story :0
[20:02:41] <takyon> I'm not removing anything except two line breaks. I remove line breaks after [...] to save space. It's legit
[20:02:47] <takyon> I'll also add a link to the paper.....
[20:03:29] <janrinok> I'm going to have to go - its late here. I'll be back on at about 1400 UTC
[20:04:31] <takyon> see you
