[00:00:10] <Fnord666> posting or deleteing? :)
[00:00:25] <Fnord666> s/deleteing/deleting/
[00:00:27] <exec> <Fnord666> posting or deleting? :)
[00:01:22] -!- SoiBoi has quit [Ping timeout: 272 seconds]
[00:01:49] <Bytram> My basic view is "Submissions are generally accepted within a few days; this story has not been selected by any editor in at least a week's time and has, therefore, been removed from the submissions queue."
[00:01:55] <Bytram> ^^ how does that sound?
[00:02:01] <Bytram> deleting
[00:02:16] <Fnord666> That sounds reasonable to me.
[00:03:00] <Bytram> Of course, no message is necessary if the submitter has no e-mail addy, like "Anonymous Coward" or "-- Original Owner_"... those we can just remove
[00:03:11] <Bytram> so far so good?
[00:03:14] <Fnord666> yup
[00:03:43] <Bytram> so a week ago takes us to... ??
[00:04:34] <Fnord666> the 27th
[00:04:52] <Fnord666> but through the 28th works for me
[00:05:37] <Bytram> if I did the math right, anything at or before: 2018/06/28 00:04:44 UTC
[00:06:28] <Bytram> note, too, that subs by any of the bots do not need messages sent to the user, either.
[00:06:45] <Bytram> For posterity sake, though. It would still be good to past that sentence into the reason field.
[00:06:55] <Bytram> s/past/paste/
[00:06:57] <exec> <Bytram> For posterity sake, though. It would still be good to paste that sentence into the reason field.
[00:07:08] <Bytram> mmm pasta... /me is hungry!
[00:07:10] <Bytram> ;)
[00:07:21] <Fnord666> yep. My dinner is calling as well
[00:07:42] <Fnord666> biab.
[00:08:09] <Bytram> so, all stories before and including "Justice Kagan on Janus: SCOTUS Reactionaries Are "Weaponizing the First Amendment" " can be deleted? Do you see anything there that you'd want to run?
[00:08:15] <Bytram> nod nod; same here
[00:08:17] <Bytram> afk
[00:08:21] <Bytram> biab
[00:10:17] <Bytram> On second thought, given the state of the story queue, let's hold off on deleting anything from the submissions queue for an hour or so, or at least until we have the story queue fleshed out for a bunch more entries.
[00:10:23] <Bytram> afk, biab
[00:32:22] <Fnord666> I'm back
[00:39:18] <Bytram> Nice to meet you, I'm forth. ;)
[00:41:13] <Fnord666> howdy forth. I'm Pascal
[00:41:45] <Fnord666> story queue is up to 8am ET
[00:43:05] <Bytram> rofl!
[00:43:38] <Bytram> really glad you cold fill the queue, I'm pretty knackered atm.
[00:43:44] <Bytram> s/cold/could/
[00:43:46] <exec> <Bytram> really glad you could fill the queue, I'm pretty knackered atm.
[00:43:52] <Bytram> ^^ see!
[00:44:59] <Fnord666> lol
[00:45:16] <Fnord666> For a change I was able to sleep in today.
[00:45:35] <Bytram> good for you!
[00:45:36] <Fnord666> Probably won't get to sleep until late because of it though
[00:46:18] <Bytram> I was able to sleep in a bit, too... at least compared to recent days when I woke at the crack of dawn... lasted until 0630 this AM
[00:46:48] <Bytram> pasta, turkey, milk, melatonin
[00:48:03] <Fnord666> yep
[00:48:41] * Bytram just had a couple large, turkey sandwiches
[01:10:43] <Fnord666> lettuce wraps and fried dumplings for me

[01:31:46] <Fnord666> No problem
[01:31:52] <Fnord666> Good night Bytram
[01:32:47] <TheMightyBuzzard> just noticed, no SN birthday story this year?
[01:35:50] <Fnord666> TMB Apparently not
[01:37:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> ah well. no need to do it every year i guess.
[01:37:39] <Fnord666> Did we do one last year?
[01:37:49] <Fnord666> I see ones for the previous years
[01:39:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> not sure. i think bytram's decided to go with the go-live date instead of the incorporation date.
[01:44:06] <Fnord666> He did run one in February so that must be it
[01:44:27] <Fnord666> and the same the year before
[01:45:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> he probably doesn't want to be inside typing when he could be outside blowing up toads.
[01:45:53] <TheMightyBuzzard> and hotwheels, and gi joes, and transformers, and making any siblings he has wet their pants
[01:47:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> okay, tennessee whiskey/tobacco and john adams miniseries time.
