[08:53:40] * exec derisively instantiates a sweaty armpit of recycled toilet paper for chromas
[08:53:48] <chromas> ~g'day janrinok
[08:53:49] * exec brazenly heaps a steel drum of buttnuggets on janrinok
[08:53:59] <janrinok> how's things?
[08:54:02] <chromas> oh look, they match!
[08:54:16] <janrinok> a rare event indeed
[08:54:27] <chromas> Not bad. I 2nded a couple stories on prod like a Big Boy™
[08:54:38] <janrinok> which ones?
[08:55:10] <chromas> "Dctor Accused of Resuing…" and "Toyota's New Magnet…"
[08:55:31] <janrinok> just found them
[08:55:42] <chromas> oh and "Safer IV Liquid"
[08:55:53] <janrinok> any questions or unexpected occurrences?
[08:56:27] <chromas> I wondered about a link having a paywall but I just stuck an [Ed note] after it
[08:56:28] <janrinok> .. and you did Widespread Vuln
[08:56:46] <chromas> Ah, so two couples then
[08:57:55] <janrinok> that's a good solution if you can't find an alternative source. For example, some of the subs point to a science site which is reporting a discovery or breakthrough at a university. The link to the original university work is actually included at the bottom of the web page, but not in the quoted material
[08:58:38] <janrinok> If you can, and this is really the 1st ed's job, drill down to the original source and quote that rather than the science site
[08:58:59] <chromas> The Safer IV one was already out but I 2nded is anyway
[08:59:10] <chromas> Oh that wasn't the only link; it was just one of the links
[08:59:22] <chromas> https://soylentnews.org
[08:59:22] <janrinok> Paywalls, or even the need to have js enabled is worth a comment if it is not obvious where the story is
[08:59:22] <upstart> ^ 03Error
[08:59:25] <exec> └─ 13Error
[09:00:20] <chromas> Oooh, if I gave the bot my session cookie it could title those pages >:)
[09:00:23] * chromas won't do that though
[09:00:34] <janrinok> and of course, if in doubt, ask someone what to do or just leave it alone if there is plenty of time before the story is due out
[09:02:22] <janrinok> OK, you can consider yourself able to 2nd ed as you wish now but you still need to look at doing submissions from start to finish. For example, if you were to look at the site in a few weeks time and find that there were no stories queued, I would hope that you would at least try to push one story all the way through so we don't end up with a blank front page
[09:02:53] <janrinok> It has happened, but fortunately not too often
[09:03:55] * chromas pushes the realDonaldTrump story ;)
[09:04:08] <janrinok> what I would like you to do if you feel up to it is to make a story out of the aristarchus sub on dev. I know that it is not a good starting point, but it will indicate what we have to work with fairly frequently
[09:04:29] <janrinok> On dev I hope?
[09:04:29] * chromas opens
[09:06:02] <janrinok> chromas - you are working on dev I hope?!
[09:06:27] <chromas> I am. I'm not really doing the rjt one though
[09:06:41] * chromas just promoted the aris sub
[09:06:45] <chromas> (on dev)
[09:07:11] <janrinok> whew, thanks for that - I don't personally believe that the RJT story is worth front page as it stands
[09:07:27] <chromas> Oh, I was just being silly
[09:07:30] <chromas> Or thilly
[09:07:59] <chromas> You know, people with a lithp can't pronounce their affliction. That is wrong.
[09:08:00] <janrinok> It has too little information to initiate a decent discussion and needs more background if we want to push it out
[09:08:05] <janrinok> lol
[09:09:15] <janrinok> can we change to #edtrain so we don't fill this page with rubbish and, if mistakes are made, they are not in public
[09:41:31] <chromas> For April 1 we should accept all realDonaldTrump stories and give them their own topic with a sparkly golden Trump icon
[09:42:52] <janrinok> I'm sure that the team will have something planned for the occasion
[10:18:38] * chromas saves his first story

[10:44:30] <janrinok> chromas, the spacing of stories during the week is about 90 minutes or so. I have seconded your story!
[10:47:48] * chromas collects his prestige
[10:53:24] <TheMightyBuzzard> prestige? where'd you find any of that around here?
[10:53:53] <chromas> I just set my display to a fancy font
[10:54:13] <chromas> That makes it Fancy, like those ketchups that say "Fancy" on them.
[10:54:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> that's good thinking, that is
[10:55:05] * TheMightyBuzzard sets his irc font to something with elaborate serifs
[10:55:53] * chromas is using Benguiat
[10:56:08] * TheMightyBuzzard can't spell Benguiat
[11:52:10] <chromas> How do I edit/save without promoting? That's not a field in the "without promoting" section
[11:53:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> beats me. not sure you can.
[12:59:28] <Bytram> when you are first looking at a story (from the submissions queue), to my knowledge, there is no way to modify the story without also promoting it to the story queue... at best, one can add an editor's note to call out any issues you see in the submission.
[13:04:55] <cmn32480> ^^ bytram is correct
[13:05:06] <cmn32480> as much as it always pains em to admint that
[13:05:14] <Bytram> ~blame
[13:05:15] * exec points at Bytram
[13:05:20] <Bytram> !woop
[13:05:20] <Bender> woop woop woop (\/) (;,,;) (\/)
[13:05:30] * Bytram is undercaffienated atm
[13:11:44] <janrinok> What about the "Update Submission without Promoting" link on the submission editor?
[13:12:37] <Bytram> janrinok: !!
[13:13:00] <Bytram> IIRC, that will change the editor's note, but I do not recall it saving any changes to the actual story text
[13:14:21] <Bytram> was long ago, seemed to have tried it on prod, made nice changes, saved it, and was underwhelmed when I did not see story changes saved. In a way, though, it does serve the purpose of knowing, as first editor, that what you see is exactly what the submitter submitted.
[13:14:28] <chromas> Oh, that's actually a link. It doesn't change the mouse pointer to a hand though
[13:14:54] <janrinok> Well there is already an Update button provided for the editors notes field, so why would we need the Update Sub without Promoting option?
[13:15:33] <Bytram> I misunderstood.
[13:15:36] <janrinok> ~gday Bytram
[13:15:38] * exec single-handedly copies 40 gallons worth of teenage angst for Bytram
[13:15:39] <janrinok> ~gday cmn32480
[13:15:42] * exec irresponsibly nudges a barrage of snacks toward cmn32480
[13:15:45] <janrinok> hello again chromas
[13:15:52] <Bytram> I was talking about changing the story text, and then clicking "Update" button.
[13:15:53] <cmn32480> ~gday janrinok
[13:15:55] * exec insatiably ejaculates the last bucket of the aids at janrinok
[13:15:58] <chromas> ~g'day janrinok

[13:16:02] <Bytram> ~gday janrinok

[13:16:04] <Bytram> ~gday chromas

[13:16:08] <chromas> ~g'day cmn32480
[13:16:08] <chromas> ~g'day Bytram
[13:16:12] * exec theoretically allocates a tarball of spew for cmn32480
[13:16:15] <Bytram> ~gday cmn32480
[13:16:20] * exec sardonically steals a mighty bundle of consequences from cmn32480
[13:17:26] <chromas> exec--
[13:17:26] <Bender> karma - exec: -1
[13:17:27] <janrinok> it is getting longer to say hello to everyone nowadays - but that is not a bad thing!
[13:17:51] <cmn32480> exec needs the occassional thing to do
[13:18:02] <chromas> He didn't g'day Bytram for me though
[13:18:41] <Bytram> #smake exec
[13:18:41] * MrPlow smakes exec upside the head with a glove slap
[13:18:51] <janrinok> try it again - it might have still be processing the previous command?
[13:18:59] <chromas> ~g'day Bytram
[13:19:01] * exec fanatically culturally appropriates a dongle of memory leaks from Bytram
[13:19:16] <chromas> I did do 'em at the same time so maybe some sort of racist condition?
[13:19:22] <Bytram> if I lose memory leaks, does that mean I gain an eidetic memory?
[13:19:33] * Bytram launches garbage collector process
[13:19:33] <cmn32480> single thread, prolly
[13:19:33] <janrinok> our poor little bot is obviously overworked
[13:19:46] * Bytram boosts exec's pay
[13:19:46] <cmn32480> Soylent news.. the only place where people bitch if the bots aren't multi-threaded
[13:19:56] <chromas> #sammich #editorial then
[13:19:56] * MrPlow looks around but does not see #editorial then
[13:20:08] <chromas> #sammich exec
[13:20:08] * MrPlow sneaks up behind exec and cuts their throat
[13:20:08] * MrPlow fixes thinly sliced exec's corpse sammiches for everyone in #editorial
[13:20:11] <janrinok> #sammich cmn32480
[13:20:11] * MrPlow sneaks up behind cmn32480 and cuts their throat

[13:20:13] <chromas> oh

[13:21:47] <janrinok> Bytram, once TMB has sorted out the db for chromas, can you introduce him to the other channel? I would if I could get on it myself!!!
[13:22:24] <TheMightyBuzzard> bytram already sorted the perms. nothing for me to do but give him a shell on boron if he wants one.
[13:22:40] <janrinok> can you do the email address too?
[13:22:45] <Bytram> janrinok: try /join now
[13:22:46] <chromas> Do I need the channel though? Least privilege and all
[13:23:04] <TheMightyBuzzard> naw but audioguy or mechanicjay can. they're usually around if quiet.
[13:23:29] <Bytram> janrinok: I *think* emails are mechanicj's bailiwick (if not, then prolly audioguy)
[13:23:35] <janrinok> I'll be as quiet as I can be then :)
[13:23:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> everybody gets sooper sekrit channel access. where else can we mock users and plot world domination?
[13:24:37] <cmn32480> we're Pinky and the Brain
[13:24:47] <cmn32480> One is a genius the others' insane
[13:27:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> you did that on purpose
[13:28:22] <cmn32480> To prove their mousy worth.. they'll overthrow the earth
[13:28:46] <cmn32480> they're pinky, they're pinky and the brain brain brain brain brain!
[13:29:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> narf
[13:29:47] <cmn32480> my kids were watching that the other day
[13:29:53] <janrinok> you are referring to something about which I know nothing
[13:30:00] <cmn32480> I giggled at all the adult aimed jokes that I never got as a kid
[13:30:08] <cmn32480> google it
[13:30:10] <janrinok> mind you, that is quite a large spectrum of things really
[13:30:13] <cmn32480> or Duck Duck go it
[13:30:20] <cmn32480> or whatever your search engine of choice is
[13:30:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> gen-x cartoon.
[13:30:49] <cmn32480> was originally on, late 80's early 90's, I think
[13:31:09] <cmn32480> janrinok was out battling the dinosaurs at that time
[13:31:18] <janrinok> I use Duck-Duck-Google
[13:31:42] <cmn32480> whatever floats your boat
[13:31:43] <janrinok> you young 'uns - you don't know how hard life was back then. Get off my lawn!
[13:36:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> you can get on my lawn if you like. mind you, you'll probably sink up to your knees at the moment. we've been having to drive around to the mailbox to keep from tearing up the yard.
[13:36:50] <janrinok> It started snowing here last night for the first time in years - it's not stopped yet
[13:38:11] <janrinok> must be all of 5cm and the whole village is in turmoil. The end of the world is upon us. They stared at me as if I was some kind of magician because I 'drove' in the 'snow storm'
[13:38:38] * TheMightyBuzzard chuckles
[13:39:22] <cmn32480> blame Trump.. obviously all his fault
[13:39:24] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah, we got a couple inches here and the entire town shut down. they didn't even get any salt or sand on the roads until a week later. everyone just didn't go to work.
[13:39:42] <janrinok> not here - we have our own politician to blame, thank you very much
[13:40:14] <janrinok> nobody can remember his name, but we're sure that we have one
[13:40:24] <cmn32480> fair 'nuff
[13:44:29] <Bytram> wait... *two* inches of snow causes problems? Both cmn32480 and I have weathered 30+ inch snow storms!
[13:45:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> it does when nobody except the odd migratory buzzard knows how to drive on it, yep.
[13:46:47] <Bytram> a little late for them to be thinking about doing something about those bald tires, eh?
[13:48:02] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh they can't even manage it in a 4wd vehicle with new tires.
[14:18:00] <Bytram> sad

[14:46:55] <chromas> on Toxic Algal Blooms, there's a ? which should be a β, although the linked article also has the ?
[14:47:47] <chromas> Should it stay as "?" since that's what's in the linked article?
[14:49:46] <Bytram> chromas: linky
[14:49:48] <Bytram> ?
[14:50:36] <chromas> I no-displayed the article that just popped up since it's a dupe. No comments so far. Is that okay?
[14:50:40] <Bytram> nvm, found ity
[14:50:50] <Bytram> context?
[14:51:25] <Bytram> found it
[14:51:34] <Bytram> ?-N-methylamino-L-alanine (BMAA).
[14:51:51] <chromas> That's the one
[14:52:17] <Bytram> okay... are you looking at the Science Daily article?

[14:52:25] <exec> └─ 13Understanding freshwater toxic algal blooms -- ScienceDaily
[14:53:08] <chromas> Yeah. That has a question mark, but its source has the beta symbol https://news.ncsu.edu

[14:53:20] <Bytram> nod nod...
[14:53:41] <chromas> So I wasn't sure if it should be fixed, since the linked article is also 'broken'
[14:53:47] <chromas> Maybe they don't support the unicode
[14:54:03] <Bytram> whenever I see a story from SD, I go to the story source and replace the "linked to" in OUR story to point to the *original* source.
[14:54:40] <Bytram> IOW, (1) replcae the SD link with the actual source: https://news.ncsu.edu

[14:54:55] <Bytram> (2) change the "?" to "β"
[14:55:02] <Bytram> 3()...
[14:55:06] <Bytram> (4) profit!
[14:55:54] <Bytram> (5) add a link to the actual research paper in OUR story
[14:58:07] <Bytram> chromas: are you still working on the story or would you like me to jump in?
[14:58:33] <chromas> I'm adjusting the freshwater one but ignoring the one I hid :D
[14:58:46] <Bytram> k
[14:59:47] <chromas> Do I change the arthur link or just append it to the bottom?
[15:00:11] <Bytram> one other thing, and it may just be a personal preference, but especially on small-screen devices... having "[...]" in a separate paragraph inserts a whole load of vertical whitespace. I prefer to move it to the beginning of the next paragraph, as in: <p>[...] Whatever was in the next paragraph</p>
[15:00:40] <Bytram> I don't understand
[15:01:11] <Bytram> oh... yes, I think. Where we now have:
[15:01:13] <chromas> Changing the link to point at the original source
[15:01:17] <Bytram> Arthur T Knackerbracket [soylentnews.org] has found the following story [sciencedaily.com]:
[15:01:36] <Bytram> change the link for "following story" to the orginal source. yes.
[15:01:40] <chromas> k
[15:03:10] <Bytram> btw, please accept my personal thanks for you coming on board as an editor. I really appreciate your willingness to step up and contribute!!
[15:05:36] <janrinok> by the way, the story that is held should have gone out by now?
[15:05:50] <Bytram> is a dupe
[15:05:52] <chromas> You're welcome and I look forward to breaking things all day
[15:06:04] <Bytram> I'll add an ed note
[15:06:12] <janrinok> so move something into that slot so we don't miss a gap on the front page
[15:06:29] <Bytram> nvm, note already there
[15:07:14] <Bytram> was scheduled for: 2018-03-01 14:32:00
[15:08:16] <Bytram> linux gizmos
[15:08:30] <Bytram> I'll put it in that slot
[15:08:54] <janrinok> or bring one of the others forward
[15:10:15] <Bytram> that would just create another gap, unless the 'newest' story gets moved there.
[15:11:15] <Bytram> janrinok: so, just move the Baryons/dark-matter story into the now vacant slot... and it is already 2nded... on it.
[15:11:20] <TheMightyBuzzard> true. you should just put a story full of ascii bewbs in its place.
[15:13:12] <janrinok> Bytram, that's what I would do then it gives me more time to process the new story - but you do what you feel is best. I just look for the easy option :)
[15:13:49] <Bytram> nod nod... makes sense to me... while I was at it, saw we could add the DOI info to the baryon story... am working on that atm
[15:14:32] <janrinok> yeah, Arthur didn't do a very good job on that one and I left it for chromas to work with
[15:14:48] <Bytram> =)
[15:15:08] * chromas doesn't know about DOIs 'n' such
[15:15:45] <janrinok> but I'm feeling a bit knackered now - after the training session this am and keeping up with my household nursing jobs too
[15:16:22] <Bytram> yep, don't overdoo it!
[15:16:38] <janrinok> prolly to late for today :)
[15:16:48] <janrinok> s/to/too/
[15:16:49] <Bytram> it's never two late!
[15:16:50] <exec> <janrinok> prolly too late for today :)
[15:16:53] <Bytram> lol

[23:06:43] <Bytram> unless you poked at it while I was doing that?

[23:09:06] * Bytram rofls
[23:09:27] <Bytram> yep... I see you changed the trustico release time back.... let me get out of the story and recheck
[23:11:23] <Bytram> looks good! I appreciate your eye for detail... and it was almost a bad move by me. After I pushedout the trustico story, I noticed that it was slotted in between two other stories with reduced time span between them... decided to reschedule so it would replace one fo the story's slots and that is when you noticed... and started fixing things. stuff happens. Appreciate the double check as I have been known to blow it on occasion!
