in reply to New Chatterbox Functionality

Apologies for the somewhat off-subject spot for this, but sometimes I see the input box in the chatterbox and sometimes I don't. Mostly I don't when there's a fair amount of chatting going on.

This expected behavior or what am I missing?

      Can anonymous monks vote? I could not earlier when logged in as AM, but could not figure out if it was a bug or a feature... If the latter, perhaps removing the Vote button would cause the AMs les confusion...
        They can't vote on node quality because XP points aren't given to Anonymous Monk and so they can't level up. They can vote in the polls, all that is kept track of there is whether a given IP has voted already on that particular poll.

      I knew about the node quality, was just wondering about the polls. I logged in earlier and when I tried to vote as an AM, it brought me right back to the same page, without going to the poll page. Once logged in, I was able to vote and it went to the poll results page as expected.

Chatterbox?
[ambrus]: choroba: that doesn't matter, the cookies are independent on the webserver, they just have to contain your username and crypted password with a seed of the user's choice, you can change the hostname or even construct a cookie without asking the server
[ambrus]: choroba: and for perlmonks (but not for everything2), you don't even need a cookie, you can just send a username and password parameter in every request, and this is even documented in What XML generators are currently available on PerlMonks?
[holli]: i admire you choroba, if i had to work at such a place, i wouldn't last long. as bosses don't like if someone calls them clueless idiots
[ambrus]: (The cookie format is not documented anywhere afaik, but it's trivial to reverse engineer even without being a pmdev.)
[holli]: or "ignorant bricks" (that is not a typo)
[choroba]: holli The money wasn't bad :-)
