Discrepancy in reap notification message

by Athanasius (Chancellor)
on Apr 25, 2017 at 03:57 UTC ( #1188815=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I just voted “reap” on Re: Why do use Windows? Why u so stupid?. This must have been the deciding vote, because the following immediately appeared in my Chatterbox:

and all is quiet...

You said "I've reaped a node you considered: [id://1188771] -- because: reap: trollage" to marto

But the corresponding entry in my Message Inbox is as follows:

told root Reaped node at: Reaped: Re: Why do use Windows? Why u so stupid? because [marto]: reap: trollage

Besides the obvious formatting problem in the first message, there is discrepancy regarding the recipient: was it sent to marto or to root? I’m guessing that the Chatterbox message has marto by mistake — because he considered the node?

    Currently if you consider a node you are send message saying it has been reaped. If you cast the vote which auto reaps the node you see what you observed above.

    Thanks for the tip. I have just put out a patch which changes this behavior. I ask everyone to keep an eye out for the new behavior and let me know if it's different/better.

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
      Thanks for your contributions to develop our site! :)

      Hi,

      So what is supposed to happen, who is supposed to get the notification, root, OP or consider-er?

        I'm asking people who vote 'reap' and find that they have cast the deciding vote -- the one which actually triggers the reap -- to take note of what notification they see in their cb nodelet, if any.

    I think the original idea was only to inform the original considerer - here marto.

    Anything else is probably a bug.

      Even if it were meant to be send to the one who originally considered the node, how did the message show up on Athanasius's CB stream? Is it a bug?

    I just received this /msg when voting reap on Reaped: Re: Inline::C producing an absurd result; which is a little confusing?

    You said "Reaped node at: <a href="?node_id=1189806">Reaped: Re: Inlin +e::C producing an absurd result</a> because &#91;<a href="?node=hippo +">hippo</a>&#93;: Reap: signal-free" to root

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority". The enemy of (IT) success is complexity.
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice. Suck that fhit
    a href=

      Yes, that is a little confusing, but that really is what you "said"* to root. The message appears in root's inbox like this:

      BrowserUk says Reaped node at: Reaped: Re: Inline::C producing an absurd result because [hippo]: Reap: signal-free

      But you're right, I'm not sure we like that better than how used to look before my last patch, as in this.

      I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
        but that really is what you "said"* to root.

        Fair enough. Once you know what to expect, it's not a problem (for me).
