Sandbox Hub (and Chat Reminder!) posted on 07 Apr 2016 01:03 by Decibelles
So three months ago, I created this sandbox for us to coordinate in case someone can't be on chat to talk about it. Contest ideas can go there, and if you have general ideas for discussion or want to bring up, put them in there too. If you want to even make a wall of text to comment on, do so! (I did one for Call for Reviews.)
As a reminder, if you're part of the team, when you go on chat, please join #site81 and set it for your ajoin! It helps us coordinate better. Also, rumetzen, kaktus and I are lonely there.
And finally, if you want to make a report for something that's noteworthy or of merit, feel free to use this hub to make a report. Don't be shy :)

Sandbox Issue (bswhunter) - Resolved posted on 15 Jul 2014 20:59 by Zyn
Throwing this up for posterity.
Abacade came into chat saying that he remembered someone's sandbox apparently getting vandalized and user in question freaking out about it. After some digging, it looks like a false alarm, or potentially someone IRL playing a prank.
Matter has been resolved, but in case the name pops up again, keeping record here.
13:21 Eskaway <Abacade> there was this guy who wrote an ok article but this guy edited it and added his comment down the bottom
13:21 Eskaway when did you see this, approximately?
13:21 Eskaway this is the Talk With Staff room, btw
13:22 Kens|Labwork [14:14]
13:22 abacade about a week ago
13:22 Kens|Labwork About 8 minutes ago
13:22 +++ Riemann has given voice to chubert
13:22 Eskaway oh, shit
13:22 Eskaway do you remember anything about the article? subject, author, anything?
13:22 abacade i only really thought of it now
13:23 abacade yup, it was a tale about some guy in a psych? department, a bit overdescriptive
13:23 abacade and then something went wrong
13:24 * MorgiePie joined #site17
13:24 abacade i think, then there was a line and then critiscisms about how bad it was
13:24 Zyn abacade: Do you remember any names, or forum posts?
13:24 Eskaway Do you remember if it was for the contest?
13:24 abacade nah, the guy even went into private chat
13:24 abacade no, it was sandbox
13:25 abacade but the guy was like terrified
13:25 abacade his name started with a 'b'
13:25 ProcyonPing Can you remember the name of the sandbox?
13:25 ProcyonPing …Bennings?
13:26 abacade nah, this guy was a real noob, like about the same as me
13:26 Zyn abacade: if you saw the name, do you think you'd be able to identify it?
13:26 abacade i've told you all i know that's concrete, sorry
13:26 Zyn Also, do you remember the edit comment?
13:26 ProcyonPing How about the guy who did it?
13:27 * Macready left #site17
13:27 abacade yup, definitly
13:27 abacade i would tell you the guy who did
13:27 abacade it
13:27 * BryxAway is now known as Bryx
13:27 abacade 's, if i knew
13:27 Zyn abacade: Do you remember the edit comment?
13:27 Zyn Because
13:27 Zyn There is a way to check all the recent changes made on the sandbox wiki.
13:27 Zyn But it'd involve some digging.
13:27 ProcyonPing (I'm good at that)
13:28 abacade it was pretty long, but it said something about tearing his hair out
13:28 chubert (haaaaaaa.)
13:28 ProcyonPing Jesus. This was the /edit/ comment and not the edit to the page, right?
13:28 Zyn abacade: The actual edit comment?
13:28 abacade no they edited the page
13:29 abacade and put the hair tearing in
13:29 Zyn I see.
13:29 abacade the page should say it, unless they have changed it
13:29 Zyn And you said this was about a week ago, right?
13:29 Zyn Can you give a more specific day?
13:29 abacade or less
13:29 *MorgiePie quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
13:30 abacade thinking
13:30 Zyn Okay.
13:30 Zyn Just to double-check
13:30 * MorgiePie joined #site17
13:30 Zyn The person who made the bad edit had a username that started with a b.
13:30 Zyn They left an edit comment.
13:30 * Eskaway quit (Ping timeout: 184 seconds)
13:30 Zyn They made only one edit.
13:30 abacade no, the owner
13:31 abacade sorry, it's vague
13:31 abacade i should have said earlier
13:31 abacade and recoreded it
13:32 abacade if you show me a list of names, i'll findd it for you
13:32 abacade just of site members
13:32 abacade and that guy'll tell you about it, coz he was the victim
13:33 abacade never caught the aggressor's name, though
13:33 Silber .g SCP wiki list of members

13:33 Silber that's… close
13:33 Zyn abacade: http://scpsandbox2.wikidot.com/index/p/3
13:34 Zyn The Bs start towards the bottom-ish.
13:34 Zyn the pages are listed in order of page creator.
13:34 Zyn *page creator's username
13:35 abacade thnx
13:37 * Bouncl joined #site17
13:37 +++ ChanServ has given halfop to Bouncl
13:40 abacade i have a strange fear the user may have erased or deleted their page
13:40 Zyn It's entirely possible.
13:40 Zyn although
13:40 Zyn you could always just check the sandboxes
13:41 Zyn to see if one of them has been edited by someone besides the author.
13:41 abacade will do
13:41 Zyn Thanks.
13:41 Zyn If you need extra help, I can delegate a staff member to help.
13:41 Zyn There aren't that many Bs out there though.
13:41 Zyn well, compared to other letters.
13:42 abacade k
13:42 Zyn Bryx is checking, actually.
13:42 Zyn Hang on.
13:43 Bryx I'm working from the front of the b's, abacade. Would you like to take the back?
13:43 abacade sure
13:43 Bryx Start on page 5 and work backwards, then
13:44 abacade it was like a line then two paragraphs of comment by the bad guy
13:45 abacade it was also a tale
13:46 Bryx Alright
13:49 abacade i found it
13:49 abacade bswhunter
13:49 Zyn Awesome.
13:49 Zyn Link please?
13:50 abacade http://scpsandbox2.wikidot.com/bswhunter
13:50 Zyn Uhhh
13:50 Bryx I don't see any edits except by the user
13:50 Zyn The only edits on that page were made by the user.
13:50 Zyn Hmm.
13:50 abacade down the bottom
13:50 abacade if you read
13:50 ProcyonPing It's clean edit wise.
13:51 abacade it's got bad stuff
13:51 chubert i think
13:51 chubert bswhunter is just being self-deprecating
13:51 Bryx ###Really? It took an ENTIRE FUCKING PAGE TO GET TO THE ACTUAL STORY?
13:51 Bryx ###Ahem
13:51 Bryx Is that what you're referring to?
13:51 abacade more the paragraph down the bottom
13:52 abacade about telling the thugs they failed
13:52 ProcyonPing Either way
13:52 Zyn can you copy-paste in the actual text?
13:52 ProcyonPing Only one person has touched it
13:52 Bryx That… seems to be just part of the tale…
13:52 Zyn It's possible that someone fooled around with their computer.
13:53 ProcyonPing Yeah
13:53 ProcyonPing It's part of the tale
13:53 abacade sorry guys
13:53 Zyn Probably someone IRL playing a prank.
13:53 Zyn We'll make a note of this, though.
13:53 abacade sorry
13:54 Bryx It's fine. You saw something, and you told staff. That's good.
13:54 abacade i think next time, i'll tell earlier and write stuff down
13:55 abacade to streamline in case it is again a dud
13:55 Zyn That'd be great, yeah.
13:55 Zyn The matter seems to be cleared up now, though.
13:55 Zyn So no harm done.
13:55 abacade cool

Newbie Guide rewrite posted on 30 Jan 2014 12:49 by Crayne
Just noting that I've written a draft for a new Newbie Guide (as opposed to a Guide to Newbies, which sounds like we need to know how to deal with them). Currently being evaluated by moose, Zyn and TroyL.
- Introduction tab rewritten to be an actual introduction rather than a rehash of the Site Rules.
- Site Behavior retitled 'Site Survival Tips'.
- Site Survival Tips edited to remove rehashed Site Rules entries, supplemented with things that were missing, and format adjusted for readability.
- Tips for members retitled 'Good Membership' and edited for clarity and readability.
- Staff Tab reduced to a list of staff by position. If a separate Guide to Staff comes into being, tab can disappear and new document can be linked from Site Survival Tips.
