@M.A.R. If you have specifics, probably worth asking on Meta?
 
I saw it twice. If it happens again, I'm going to meta
 
@DVK-in-Florida Heh, I'd almost forgotten about that.
 
Twice in 21 questions is a lot.
 
@M.A.R. Linky?
 
@M.A.R. o/
 
7:01 PM
\o
 
Hmm. This is an interesting question. Should questions about tropes be on-topic?
 
As if I don't already spend waste enough time on TV tropes.
 
A new answer has just popped up on the ID meta question... and just by reading the first sentence I'm 99% sure it's Shog
 
7:04 PM
@HDE226868 And some more here
 
@HDE226868 The highest-voted answer there seems to imply that the site will either not work or not work
 
@ArtOfCode yep
 
@NapoleonWilson Yeah, I'm abstaining from that as well. I already know how that will turn out, and intend to save myself the heartache and effort.
 
@JNat Already reading it.
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ Shame on you! Evryone knows that Blue+weird hat means you're one of the two Wizards who accompanied @Mithrandir but whose GPS malfuntioned.
 
7:06 PM
@ArtOfCode His style is quite identifiable, isn't it?
Hey @Emrakul! :-)
 
Hey @Randal'Thor! :]
I've got a class, will be back in a hour-ish!
 
@ArtOfCode It's got an analogy. Of course it's Shog.
 
@ArtOfCode Does it also contain ''y'all''?
 
@DVK-in-Florida They got fired after that.

A: What order should I read the "Ender's game" series in?

sanpacoI found the following chart online several years ago and saved it for personal use because I found it interesting. Unfortunately I don't remember exactly where I got it from but I'll share it here since it is relevant. It outlines the entire Ender Wiggin saga including in-universe chronology and ...

 
7:07 PM
@HDE226868 No, it's not that. Analogies are pretty common, I use them a fair bit. The identifiable bit is the completely unrelated analogy that you wouldn't think of in a million years. I mean, identification questions, sushi and carrots?
 
The image seems to be from pinterest
 
@M.A.R. Of course it does
 
I expected it to at least be a blog about the Ender's Game.
 
@ArtOfCode Almost like ... answers and apples.
 
What should I do?
 
7:09 PM
@Catija lol, we basically posted the same answer for spoilers
 
Devalue the chart by adding the source which values the graph visuals rather than graph content?
 
@Randal'Thor Exactly. How does he manage to pick relevant, useful, yet completely unrelated analogies all the time? You could get paid for that skill!
 
@ArtOfCode Well, true.
 
@DForck42 Because it's the only sensible policy... though I can't ever get spoiler markup to work.
 
@ArtOfCode And the fact that the answer ends just when you're about to enjoy it the most
 
7:10 PM
@Catija lol
 
@DForck42 Heh! And all 3 downvoted. ;-)
 
Aw come on, who flags a bot?
 
@NapoleonWilson Mine's not downvoted... yet.
 
@Mithrandir "fired" as in Orodruin?
 
7:12 PM
@M.A.R. understandable, for the content of the message. Edited out.
 
@ArtOfCode Well, to be honest. Sometimes I don't really get them and they rather tend to distract from the matter at hand. It's a bit of a way to avoid directly discussing the problem.
 
Anyway, what should I do about the image attribution?
 
@NapoleonWilson lol
 
@DVK-in-Florida ha
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ Just saw your last answer. Aaargh! Spoilers! You weren't supposed to know that! :P
BTW, did you finish it yet?
 
7:13 PM
too late
 
That is a clickbaity title

Q: Is this hypothesis about the significance of the name "Denna" in the Kingkiller Chronicle supported by the text?

EmrakulThere's a somewhat popular theory about The Kingkiller Chronicle, which is that the name "Denna" derives from the use of denner resin, and its addictive properties. The theory branches two directions: the first speculates that the name is supposed to be symbolic, rather than textual. Denna is a...

Is that valid to avoid spoilering the hypothesis?
 
@DJMcMayhem a friend spoiled me :/
 
@ArtOfCode Despite agreeing with the answer 100%, the analogy is a failure. I'm aware of several parental stories, independently, where the kids were taken to a fancy restaurant, only to admit tat their favorite food of the whole meal was things like "nice radish pieces" and "cucumbers from salad"
 
and no, still farming gold for temmie armor
and now sans is that much creepier
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ tell your friend "DJ says you're lame"
 
7:15 PM
@DVK-in-Florida Ah, but that's not a failure of analogy, but of observation. Assuming that Shog's observations are correct (i.e. nobody cares about the carrot), the analogy itself is solid.
 
Lol
 
@DJMcMayhem New proposal. Ban ANY AND ALL TVTrope links.
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ That means he knows DJ
 
7:16 PM
Spoiler markup hates me. Seriously. Never have managed to make it work.
 
where? i might be able to fix it
 
@Catija I think it's cause you put it in quotes
 
don't press enter
that's always the problem
 
7:16 PM
@Catija Did you forget a space after the exclamation mark?
Or did you use tag markup?
 
@M.A.R. that's unnecessary
 
@Mithrandir But helps stop it from breaking itself sometimes
 
@M.A.R. And tags don't kill spoilers
 
@Mithrandir But their markup breaks spoiler markup
BTW @Cat how is the little guy doing? Haven't seen a pic in a while
And your avatar is too small
 
He's getting big!
 
7:19 PM
very nice babby
 
@Catija And fast
 
@ArtOfCode helped me fix it. :D
 
@Catija Awww.
 
@Catija baby!
 
7:20 PM
How many sites is he going to be the mascot of now? :-P
 
yes this is a good baby
 
@Randal'Thor lol
 
@DForck42 I made it! He has a happy cork in his pocket.
 
@Catija lol
 
It's the only thing that fit in the pocket... that's not so small he'd him to kill himself with it.
 
7:21 PM
so, my fiancé has this running joke now that, whenever I tell stories about when I was younger, she just imagines me as tall as I am now (6'3)
so she pictures me as a 6'3 baby being carried around by my mom
 
in The Screening Room, Aug 26 '16 at 22:59, by Catija
I'm not a big fan of babies in general, but I do like this one quite a bit. He's very good.
 
@DForck42 HA HA HA HA
@Randal'Thor Hey, that's like a day after he was born :D
@Randal'Thor ALL OF THE SITES!!!!
 
Owo, I've been getting lost of meta downvotes :/
 
We actually did the casting for this set of commercials. ^
 
@Catija neat
@Mithrandir it happens
 
7:24 PM
@Mithrandir Be happy there's no rep involved.
 
one nice thing is that we can pull a lot of good meta answers from movies and sff to help this site
we didn't have that as readily available for the first lit site
and SE as a whole has matured quite a bit
 
Damn, how much rep do we need to be able to edit on meta?
 
same as on main
 
@Randal'Thor 500
 
@DForck42 So if I repcap again tomorrow ...
 
7:27 PM
@Randal'Thor yup
which honestly won't be hard
votes get thrown out like candy in private betas
 
@DForck42 I want candy votes
 
@Mithrandir lol
 
I want votes on (1) (2) (3) :P
 
@Randal'Thor I'm still looking for the origin of the 'Too radical' quote we both found here.
There's got to be someone who said it first. But it's just propagating across the Internet.
 
@HDE226868 Ca-ching!
@HDE226868 I was wondering what on earth "too radial" meant ... you missed a C :-)
 
7:32 PM
Ahhh. . .
 
@HDE226868 lol
@Randal'Thor it rotates too much ;-)
 
@Randal'Thor WoT isn't that long in terms of time apparently, but it's up there
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ The Riftwar cycle isn't really a single series.
It's more like a collection of 15-20 trilogies and quartets.
 
it's the same universe
> Can be different story lines but must be in the same "universe"
 
Set in the same world(s), but not all part of the same story.
 
7:37 PM
yeah, they don't have to be though
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ Oh OK. Well, in that case, I nominate "the real world" :-P
 
@Randal'Thor lol, this is why I don't like "first of" or "longest" questions
i feel that they don't really add appreciation to the works, and are merely trivia
but, alas, not many agree with me
 
(4) :P
I need 6 more rep to pass 200...
 
@Mithrandir upboated, good question
 
7:43 PM
@DForck42 I think they can be good.
But sometimes on SFF they're used as a way to get around the ban on list/recommendation questions.
 
:O I have the highest voted Meta question right now. :)
 
I have another 39 Clues question now...
 
@DJMcMayhem nice!
 
"What are all the works satisfying XYZ?" - close, too broad
"What was the FIRST work satisfying XYZ?" - reopen
even if they have essentially the same motivation
@DJMcMayhem Which one was that?
 
@Randal'Thor heh
 
7:44 PM
@Randal'Thor are graphic novels on topic
 
@Randal'Thor coming up on the rep cap, I'll soon join you :D
@Mithrandir nice edits, thanks for that
 
welcome
 
I approved them both
 
I see :)
That gave me 4 rep from that answer
 
7:48 PM
yep
... .I got 17 rep from 2 upvotes on that?
wat
no downvotes but lol
 
repcap
Didja forget about that cap? ;)
 
holy squirrel I hit the cap
ninja'ed
lel
havne't gotten the badge yet, that's why I was confused
done
@Mithrandir do I get the accept now? ;)
 
so can anyone review the suggested edits, and first posts yet? lol
 
Possibly
@Skooba nope
 
and they won't be able to until tomrrow due to rep cap?
 
7:52 PM
Meta dupe!
@Skooba Suggested edits can always be reviewed by the OP.
At present I think it's only CMs who can review first posts.
 
@Randal'Thor yes, but i meant in the review queue
@Randal'Thor ah yes, the overlords
So what is the timeline to graduate out of private beta?
 
20 days
 
@Randal'Thor I only need 32 more rep, I'll probably hit that soon
 
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ repcap...
 
@Randal'Thor just repcapped also! I'm joining you and art
@Mithrandir edits/accepts don't count for repcap
 
7:54 PM
edits do i think
 
accepts don't
 
example: I just got more rep from your accept
 
I got 2 rep today. \o/
 
and i have a couple more answers anyway so
 
7:55 PM
Oh crap, it seems I lost them already on downvotes. :'(
I forgot that they actually cost rep.
 
@Skooba I think they can do that too?
Or maybe not. I dunno.
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ Art repcapped on meta, not main. But congrats! :-D
 
ah okay
thanks!
 
@Skooba Dunno. At least a couple of weeks, I think?
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ You can still earn 2 rep from edits without having to worry about the repcap?
 
@Randal'Thor 20 days at least acoording to logged out
@Randal'Thor wrong, i tell you
 
@Randal'Thor I think so
I might be wrong then
 
7:57 PM
check my sep 14 rep on SFF
 
lol, just saw @Shog9 pop in then pop out
 
Shog just dropped in and out.
Jinx :-P
 
I have too many tabs open
 
@Shog9 common dev problem
a friend of mine wouldn't never close his browser and would end up with 50+ tabs open
 
7:58 PM
@EᴀsᴛᴇʀʟʏIʀᴋ I got 200 rep then, mostly on suggested edits. The last one was only +1 because of repcap.
 
always got mad if his computer shut down for some reason
 
I should say, I have too many tabs open in this one window; makes it hard to find stuff I'm working on
so I'm trying to separate my chatrooms
...anyway...
read any good books lately?
