It's worth keeping in mind that we took well over a year to get through commitment (we had a fast definition phase because the requirements were lower). Studying Japanese culture broadly is probably at least an order of magnitude less popular than watching anime, so it's actually relatively impressive that we've gotten this far even.
I honestly have no clue where in the network we could hope to find a lot more people who aren't already aware of the proposal. Outside the network we might find some, but I don't know any good places to advertise.
@Frosteeze They close it after 1 year
I find it a bit frustrating that very poorly motivated proposals like Vi/Vim (their entire motivation is "Emacs has a site, so we should too") get through A51 trivially, but very well-thought-out proposals are basically doomed if they fall outside SE's traditional expertise.
And at the end of the day, A51 doesn't even do that good of a job predicting anything useful. What a site needs to succeed isn't 200 users, nor 100 experienced users from other SE sites, but just a dozen or so people who are actually committed long-term to making the site work.
I guess SE realizes that also, which is why they want to change it, but we've been waiting on the change for years now.
im looking for a specific hentai/manga story.. thing.
the scene i remember is that a young girl and a young, more feral boy (sharp nails, hair, animal ears). the boy appears to be injured, so the girl stops by with a basket(?) and tries to treat and feed him, but he lashes out at her, she drops ...
