[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @sophie just looking at http://github.ushahidi.org/platform-pattern-library/assets/html/3_modules/#pl-pattern-stage-list
Whats are the different states for the 'Mark as complete' button?
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] ie. it needs to show disabled / incomplete / complete ..
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] I'm guessing what we're showing is the incomplete state.. what does complete look like?

cool cool and (forgive me for asking), I assume you’ve created a DB called ushahidi as in the install docs?
Ushbot
@ushbot
Jun 16 2015 13:49
[Kash_ (guest)] yes yes, i double check, the DB exist
[Kash_ (guest)] I just made a mispel error but it's everywhere so it should not be a problem i wrote ushashidi

ahh okay :) that could actually explain it. I’m just finding the right file you’ll need to modify

[Kash_ (guest)] Hum ok, i'll do a fresh install with a new user and db and see how it goes.

perhaps the fastest ‘test’ would be to just make a different db with the ‘correct’ name - I think thats all that matters. I’ve little doubt you could modify the code to the different name, but its probably easiest long run to keep it consistent :)
(sorry I’m pretty new to this code, but I’m also often the only one online at this time.. someone more helpful is bound to be about in a few hours)

[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] @all I'd like to take tomorrow and thursday off. I'm having trouble forming sentences the last two days and think I need to take a little break before the hit team. I'd still be reachable and tying up any loose ends before people start arriving Thursday evening, just not actively participating in communication. If there's anyone who opposes, or if I owe anyone anything please let me know!
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] Sounds great to me!
[Brian Herbert, Ushahidi] As long as we can keep a hangout running for 48 hours starting at midnight, I'm okay with it
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] I'm out the rest of this week and next week too. But i'll be online via google hangout the entire time
[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] should i periscope the full 48 hours?
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] with a selfie stick attached to my person
[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] hahahahahahaha
[Brian Herbert, Ushahidi] That is acceptable
[Brian Herbert, Ushahidi] the tool isn't important as long as it's video so we know you aren't turning it on and walking away
[Michelle Hamilton-Page, Ushahidi] Let us know if there is anything you want us to stick-handle whilst you charge up the batteries!
[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] ha
[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] thanks, @Michelle. I think I'm good. I circled up with crowley last week with robbie and sent notes to you guys about that, and I will plan to be on that call thursday morning.

[Michelle Hamilton-Page, Ushahidi] Sounds great. ping (rollcall, I know, I know) me if there is anything you need re hit team planning too!
[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] oh, yes and the beta release should be done Thursday -- can you guys handle the blog post/comms on that?

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] who knows. I'm not 100% sure if they were installing v3 or v2 either
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] hopefully they come back or post in forums and we can get them properly sorted
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @jess good plan. Take a break. I'll be mostly offline tomorrow too.. trying to roll the release today if I can.

yeah I wasn’t sure. Either way I figure its better that at least someone chatted to them, and its a quiet time of day
and I’ve always found those kind of things (e.g. spelling) have a way of causing problems later even if you fix the immediate issue
Ushbot

Jun 16 2015 21:33
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Agreed. The trickiest thing about support chats is that we can't be here 24 hrs/day .. but if its quiet people feel like no one cares.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] yup
