@Eric now a comparison:
 
12:28 AM
He's certainly improved. Can't say the same for the characters, though. :P
 
12:47 AM
@Eric What improved?
 
@LoganM Agumon. Not a cute girl, so you likely won't notice the difference.
We're only 45% committed for the Japanese Culture SE, but we're more than 50% through the commitment period time-wise.
 
Not sure I see what's improved.
 
As expected :P
 
@Eric what should we do?
 
1:04 AM
@ʞɹɐzǝɹ Dunno. I think we need to reach out to Japanese communities. After all, that's where the experts will be.
 
I'm honestly not sure we've got realistic chances, even with some action. It's just not something that many people care about to the level that they'd want an English Q&A site on the topic.
 
true
What do you think @Eric?
 
I agree in that limiting it to English is going to be a challenge. The problem is that we'll have more askers in English, more responders in Japanese. That makes a pretty difficult situation.
 
1:23 AM
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.
 
@Eric Can they close down a proposal if the commitment phase gone too long?
 
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.

!!weather Baltimore
 
@LoganM Baltimore: 24.0799F (-4.4C, 268.75K), Sky is Clear
 
I'm pretty sure it's colder than that.
Maybe only because the wind is crazy though.
 
@HoiHoi-san I don't think I'll be able to survive this temperature
!!weather Yogyakarta
 
@OshinoShinobu Yogyakarta: 27.659C (300.809K), broken clouds
 
dam those broken clouds
 
2:24 AM
@OshinoShinobu I'm pretty sure it's not right. The thermometer outside the building read 17F when I walked back in after getting dinner.
And the wind was shaking the street signs, which usually means it's around 30 mph (50 kph) or higher
 
I don't think I can tell the different if it's already below 0C
 
It's very different from 0C to -10C. You'll definitely tell the difference.
 
I'll be dead anyway
living in tropical country has its downsides
@ʞɹɐzǝɹ wonder if this Nagato still kuudere, love that part
or... dandere?

Q: looking for a specific manga (hentai)

Xilliahim 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 ...

 
@OshinoShinobu Are you Indo? :O
 
Yea
I just happen to born in this country
 
yessss saya masi bisa ngomong sama orang lain di indonesia buat practice :3
 
lol, but we still need to speak English here
 
is that a rule?
whoops didn't know
Considering some of you speak Japanese here and there
 
3:19 AM
I remember someone said something like that when we speak too much Japanese
are you Indonesian?
 
Yup
living in the US
 
well if you want to speak Indonesian try private room
ah I see
@Taisho still can't believe these girls ride a tank with their tiny body
 
Wouldn't small people fit better inside tanks?
 
well those tanks were made for average adult soldier
and some of those tank actually pretty big
 
3:35 AM
Even large tanks are rarely 3m tall. With everything that goes inside/outside, I imagine it's relatively cramped
 
that's M4 Sherman
Saunder's tank
 
That's a relatively tall one, and I wouldn't even be able to stand up in it.
 
why would you stand up inside tank
 
you crawl inside tanks lol
well i guess you can stand up if you're observing
 
and heavy transmission and bullet
those girls should have at least some muscular arm
at least on reality...
@LoganM you're too tall
 
3:49 AM
I'm not so worried about that one, but the shorter tanks (like 2.2 m tall), I'm not even sure I could sit in it.
@OshinoShinobu I'm not that much taller than average.
 
but lot taller than those girls
 
Yeah, that's the point
 
I see
 
I'm only 6 inches (15 cm) or so taller than the average here.
 
15 cm is pretty big difference
well you definitely won't fit Carro Veloce, but you still can use Mauss
 
4:07 AM
 
4:24 AM
@OshinoShinobu that looks like he's farting
