@NapoleonWilson That was actually NAA when I flagged it... he edited it.
Yeah, just noticed it. I'll just decline then...Or rather mark helpful, since it was a reasonable flag at the time you flagged.
Q: What is the name of this anime movie set in the 1960 with an alterantive history plot?

Frosty The DopeManOkay, I remember seeing this movie on the TV in some channel back in 2000 on a Saturday night. The anime movie is basically set somewhere during 60's. But, it has an alternative history plot than our real world history. In this movie it is revealed that the Space Race was used as a cover up by bo...

Q: Why are some of the most famous movie investigators klutzes and/ or idiots?

Jesse CohoonLook at both "The Pink Panther" and "Columbo" who bumble about their respective crime scenes and always solve their respective cases despite their ineptitude. In regards to Columbo, there's even a real life police interrogation method based off of it. Are we, the audience, to believe that seeming...

Q: What is this TV show called from 5-10 years ago?

ShredingFrom what I remember, this show is about a team of criminals who go to heist a bank. Something goes wrong and they are walled up there with a bunch of hostages and the entire series (or mini-series, not sure which) is about them being inside and trying to figure a way out.

@AnkitSharma @Catija Are you guys around?
3:15 AM
What's up @steelershark
@Catija Not much. I just wanted to tell you goodbye since I won't talk to you for a week :'(
@steelershark :( Not at all? Hope you have a magical time! :D
@Catija Well, I might log on if I have some time and fill you in on the trip. We will see. Awww, thank you! I hope that I have a magical time!! :))
Q: Movie, it may be a tv film from the 80s about a boy confusing reality with the RPG he's playing

For the watchI´m loking for a movie from the 80s or early nineties about a boy playing an RPG that does overlap the real world and the characters from the RPG (a warrior with a sword or an axe, the alter ego of the main character), it may or may not be from Spain, but if I recall correctly the protagonist li...

@steelershark I don't think people have time to do anything in Vegas.
3:23 AM
@Catija Haha! Agreed! It's been a long time since I have been in this situation, so...we will see how it goes ;)
I'm sure you're have a ton of fun regardless. It's hard not to have fun in Vegas if you can stay away from the smoke.
Oh, totally! I am just looking forward to spending time and having fun with someone who I completely adore and have been waiting to meet IRL. I can't wait! I'm so excited!!! :))
You both getting there tomorrow, or will you have a day to settle in?
3:40 AM
I will be getting there around midnight or 1am on Thursday morning. My dad's wedding is at 10am. They are all leaving at noon to go back home and my mom and dad are leaving for Hawaii. Napoleon's flight gets in around 2:30pm, so I am picking him up at the airport! We are staying at my mom's condo in Vegas! Woohoo!
Oooh! Sounds like a ton of fun! So you get to get the wedding out of the way first :D
Yep! The wedding will be done fairly quickly. My whole family is leaving immediately after. There is no way that I would put poor Napoleon through meeting my family for the first time at the same time that he would be meeting me for the first time. I wouldn't do that to him. That's a bit overwhelming. So, they will all be gone by the time that he gets there.
Wait... that's... really quick... 10 am and then the plane at noon? No party?
@MovieReel sounding cool.
3:49 AM
@Catija No. No party. We had all of our parties last weekend. They are going directly to Hawaii for their honeymoon and the rest of the family are all coming back right after the wedding because my brother in law and both of my other brothers have to work.
@MAFIA36790 Good Morning!

Q: Was Kirk and Uhura's kiss really the first interracial kiss on TV?

ThunderforgeIt's been widely stated (for instance, by Huffington Post) that the original Star Trek episode "Plato's Stepchildren" had the first interracial kiss on TV. The episode aired on 22 November 1968. Was it really TV's first interracial kiss? Were there any lesser-known interracial kisses that migh...

@steelershark Huh, interesting. Well, I guess that makes it easy.
@Catija Yeah, it is all working out great. I am just so excited to finally get to see Napoleon in the flesh!! Yay!!
@AnkitSharma 2nd episode was better than the 1st one.
@steelershark :D I'm sure the waiting has been hard! But it's so close now :D
4:03 AM
BTW, at the end of the episode, Director Henshaw was revealed to be an extraterrestrial!!
He is Martian Manhunter ;0
@Catija Yes, it has been unbelievably hard! Less than two days now! I'm so happy! You guys will all be happy too, I am sure. So you guys don't have to see us falling all over each other in anticipation here in chat :P I'm really sorry if we annoyed anybody over all of it, that was never my intention. It will die down now after having finally met one another :)
He is like Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. ;P
@steelershark Or get even worse :P
You guys are fine. Really.
@Catija Haha! It won't get worse, I promise :) As long as you all are okay with it. Please don't hesitate to tell either of us if it gets to be too annoying. I absolutely adore all of you in here and I don't want to make anyone annoyed or uncomfortable :)

Nicholas AysenI swear this is a B-Movie, as there didn't seem to be any identifiable stars in it. Anyway, this movie is a comedy. The movie must've come out late 80's to early 90's. It was about a mob enforcer. He was a bit shorter than average height. Always wore a hat. The one thing I remember most about ...

In the other category the apocalyptic event has occurred a long time ago (Water...

@NapoleonWilson hello
@AJ Hello.
@NapoleonWilson I'm just curious. does this profile look suspicious.
it just added one question and does not have activity since then
added a link in profile. seems like it created account for promoting its website.
Links in profiles are fine, though.
There's about 6 billion users with no votes and a single question.
@AJ Not much, no.

2:04 PM
@microbuster hi
btw i think that movie reel is a chat boot
@microbuster It is
@microbuster tired ;)
2:39 PM
Uff, too many suggested edit ping. I hope peer will look into it, bit stuck in work to check them
@AnkitSharma I reviewed a couple of them.
@Randal'Thor It's on both of the sites
Looks ok but can't review now
@Ankit (or @Napoleon if you're still around): if I find a very bad answer which is too old to flag as VLQ, how would you treat a NAA flag on it? The alternative would be a custom mod flag, but that means you guys have to deal with it rather than all the Low Quality Posts reviewers.
I'm thinking about answers like this which are really really bad, have had a post notice for a while but no signs of improvement, but do technically attempt to answer the question.
So technically NAA is incorrect, but it's the only way to get the post into the Low Quality Posts review queue.
My plan of action for this stuff is : mark flag helpful, DV, leave comment with explanation + post notice.....then leave it for some time, if nothing improve convert it into comment
Open for suggestions
@Randal'Thor few more for you ;)
2:55 PM
@AnkitSharma I'm talking about the scenario where everything up to the "....." has already happened: it has a post notice, negative score, comment asking for improvement, time has passed with no improvement.
@Randal'Thor I hope they don't break ur 5 post a day rule
By this point it's too late to flag as VLQ, so would you prefer NAA or a custom mod "please nuke this" flag?
@Randal'Thor then I will convert it into comment
@AnkitSharma Some of them are too minor to be improved.
Might be time for a chat ping and a gentle reminder though.
@Randal'Thor He/she did same on SO and here but we both are not that strict with frontpage
3:00 PM
@AnkitSharma On your posts specifically?
Hmm, sounds a bit like targeting.
Himarm will be next ;-)
@Randal'Thor yes
@Randal'Thor here he id it with other user too but mostly oen user at at time and his edit do seems useful
@Randal'Thor That will be disaster for your front page and review queue
Anyway it gave me some rep boost too (+/-) ;)
@AnkitSharma Some of them are useful. Some are a bit too minor. I've rejected a few.
@Randal'Thor I have accepted all of the one I noticed, they seems good to me but today i am bit busy to even check
@AnkitSharma No worries, there are other people who can handle it :-)
I raised a few flags for you though.
will check it after some time or maybe napoleon or Ian will do it before me ;)
3:09 PM
Is Napoleon still around? I saw steeler left already.
I think he flies out... tomorrow?
3:24 PM
@Randal'Thor Well, the question is, is it a low quality answer or an invalid answer? In the former case, downvote, in the latter case it's apparently "not an answer". If a downvote doesn't suffice to express your opinion of the answer, then think about what is really wrong with it and flag accordingly.
3:38 PM
@NapoleonWilson Yeah, I know how flagging works in general :-) I'm more asking about M&TV's specific policy towards story-ID answers which say "it's such-and-such a film" without any justification.
@Randal'Thor It's not entirely clear-cut. For more information:
Q: How to handle low quality identification answers?

Napoleon WilsonYes, I'm talking about the answers to identification questions. While we have a few measures to handle low quality identification questions to some degree, one of the problems of those kinds of questions, even the good ones, is that they encourage bad low quality one-line answers of the kind: ...

Thanks for your flags, though.
Technically these are answers, but the fact of the post notice seems to suggest they'll be deleted if they aren't improved after a while.
@NapoleonWilson Ah, thanks.
Q: Asking and answering your own question with just a recapitulation of off-site resource -- okay?

T.J. CrowderThis question was asked and answered by the same user. That's totally fine — actively encouraged on SE. But the answer consists primarily of a recapitulation of this non-SE article, including reusing its animated GIFs. The answer does cite the article, right at the end of the very long answer. I...

VTC: unclear what you're answering.
@Catija Ohh lord, new type of ID shit
I think we got 2 more like this recently
That question isn't new... it's the answer that's new.
crap answer
Wow 1 got +110/-6 rep on SFF just because of those edits
5:17 PM
Well, afterall my self-answer was also primarily based on two existing articles. But there's still worth in condensing the wealth of information from a huge web article into a comprehensive answer.
Afterall the majority of SE is about condensing the information found elsewhere on the web into a comprehensible, focused and digestible form.
Wow, @Napoleon, you've done an awful lot of editing today.
The front page here is full of you ;-)
@Randal'Thor Well, I was cleaning up some of my favourites before the vacation.
So I don't have to go into vacation with 360 favourites but only 320. ;-)
@Randal'Thor That's already past, though. Some raging Asian coders have already taken up the task.
@NapoleonWilson The task of fixing Ankit's answers?
@Randal'Thor You don't want to see the frontpage when I come back after a near week of absence. ;-P
Gotta read and edit 'em all!
@NapoleonWilson SE's version of Pokemon?
5:24 PM
@Catija lol, happening on SFF too without caring about there front page rule ;)
Same user?
@Catija Yup
He did that in past on SO too but i have too less stuff on SO
@NapoleonWilson OK, I'll make sure not to visit M&TV in ... when do you come back? A week?
in Agents of Nothing, 2 hours ago, by phantom42
is that guy just going around fixing ankit's grammar?
@Randal'Thor O.o sound fishy
@AnkitSharma We let him know about that though, and it was all sorted out.
@NapoleonWilson Do you seriously read every single question posted to M&TV?
5:28 PM
@Randal'Thor k, didn't notice that
I need more time, i miss too much stuff, even missed many SFF questions
@Randal'Thor He is our top editor, i am not even near him
@AnkitSharma Yeah, no surprise there.
Who's this user5603 though? Not all that much rep, but apparently very active in editing and flagging.
@Randal'Thor she is kalina, once she was quite active here.
sees question about Terminators having sex, immediately knows who posted it
here or there?
If it was there (by that user), my hammer would be swinging and I wouldn't even mention it publicly.
5:40 PM
@Randal'Thor I have seen many such question on SFF , anyway here they are not common
@Ankit Do you think this is now well enough sourced to remove the post notice?
Cheers. I wasn't confident enough to flag it, since I added a citation for the second half but not for the part which actually answers the question.
@Randal'Thor I try to (well, apart from ID).
@Randal'Thor Well, the question itself is admittedly not that bad at all (after cleanup at least). Don't get repelled just from the word sex, and especially not just because of what user asked it.
@NapoleonWilson Wow. Either this site is even smaller than I'd imagined, or you need to get a life :-)
5:51 PM
@Randal'Thor We get about 10 questions a day (including ID), so it's quite managable really.
If it's about something I haven't seen, I might just skim over it to check for formatting and appropriateness and not bother much with it anyway.
@AnkitSharma The spammers have already found this site; just wait until the dirty-minded dregs of the internet do too ;-)
@NapoleonWilson Do you not have many active editors and flaggers here? On SFF I don't need to bother checking every new question (and I doubt any of the other mods do either), since if there's formatting problems someone else will edit it and if it's inappropriate someone will soon flag it.
@Randal'Thor Maybe we have, but I simply want to check them, too. Neither do I want to miss a good question.
@NapoleonWilson Even if it's about something you haven't seen?
Afterall I am part of those flaggers and editors, too. And it's my duty to check those questions not as a moderator necessarily but as an engaged user. It's up to each individual user to what extent he commits to that duty and I personally tend to commit to it to a larger extent.
@Randal'Thor Sure. If I haven't seen it I might just skim over it and judge if it's a good question, a bad one, or if I'm not sure for not having seen the movie. But why should I not still check out the question?
It doesn't cost me much to read a simple little question, maybe a minute or two and then I can be done with it. (Or it's worth engaging further, then I can contribute with helpful edits or even answers and the minute of reading was even more worth it.)
And again: this site is smaller than SciFi.SE, to quite some degree.
@NapoleonWilson Sure. I must have said this before, but nobody can doubt your dedication to this site :-)
I imagine the mod election here was over very quickly with an easy win for you three.
6:02 PM
And it pays when I can conjure up 3 years old questions for duplicate-votes or related chat discussion, to stuff I might not even have seen. It generally adds to a basic understanding and mental index of what questions are actually asked on the site.
@NapoleonWilson Indeed.
It helps to know what kind of questions are actually asked on the site and how the community develops over time. Just reacting to flags and questions about my favourite film provides a rather small view onto the site.

So i am the only one who haven't seen it ;O
@AnkitSharma Creation said that.
@AnkitSharma No.
@Randal'Thor Yeah I forgot u r a fantasy guy in sci-fi world
@Catija ohhh
@AnkitSharma That should have been my election manifesto. "Putting the Fantasy first in Sci-Fi & Fantasy SE!"

Good luck.

It probably also helped Null to win the election, via all the new SW people it brought to the site.
Well, that and his candidate score.
After excluding SW/ST/HP, i hardly get any stuff on SFF to even answer and then I even miss them due to those ninjas
7:02 PM
Excluding SW/ST/HP still leaves a lot of quality fantasy novels to ask and answer questions about ;-)
@Randal'Thor That left DC/marvel most of the time and i don't read novel/book/comics so ileft with MCU/DC-U/Arrowverse/xverse etc
And then i want to retag them but that is a risky move
