Q: Looking to identify this manga

Alexandria DesmaraisSo I don't really remember much but I read this mamga a year maybe two years ago. It involves two siblings who are moving to the country side (or mountains) to live with distant relatives ( an older couple) there is this selfish ( kinda hot headed) God ( the word Tori comes to mind) he wants the ...

Q: Castle Wingsong - The name of the book?

openInventThere was this cool castle in the book I think it was like a giant harmonica when the wind blew in sang and they called it Castle Windsong. I like the story it should have a cartoon clip or at least a storyboard sequenced.

Q: Fast children zombies in the original Dawn of the dead

RevenantNear the start of Dawn when they stop to refuel the helicopter one of the characters is attacked by two zombified children that appear to be moving much faster than any of the other zombies. Was this just a production goof due to using child actors, are they not actually moving faster or would t...

Q: Looking for this short-story about a lone man's space travel, although details are a bit vague

wcullenAs I remember it, this short-story was about a man travelling alone through space (our galaxy at least to start). He had his favorite music and books (etc) with him and, I believe, his cat. It was very cerebral and all about ruminating on the reality of travelling through the vast distances of ...

 
Cool, Dark Claw answer got a checkmark :)
By the way @TheLethalCarrot you're probably correct about this NaA post not showing in queue because it already did once
Flag is still pending
 
5:37 AM
Pending flags... gotta love 'em.
 
I wonder if my two weeks old pending flag on Meta is still pending... Sec
 
@Jenayah I have one there pending for a month and a half!
 
Three weeks old :P
No mods on Meta innit?
Or something
 
I have other flags there that have been deemed helpful.
 
Mod flags or off-topic/spam flags?
 
5:41 AM
The latter.
 
Yeah those get automatically helpful when post is closed/deleted
 
Both of my flags that require moderator action are pending.
 
I think
 
One is pretty negligible.
But one is more important.
 
If it's important drop in chat somewhere maybe?
Unless it's like, private or stuff
You can still ask a mod/CM to create a locked chatroom thoigh
 
5:46 AM
It's not private. It's just a question that is closed as a duplicate of a non-existent question.
 
Ah, that's bothersome, yeah.
Can you ping the person who closed it?
Or was it a 5-person process
 
5-person.
But one is a Stack Exchange employee, I think.
in Tavern on the Meta on Meta Stack Exchange Chat, 12 secs ago, by Alex
Hey, there's a question here that's closed as a duplicate, but the question that it's a duplicate of does not exist. Anyone with powers want to try fixing this?
 
Aaaah good old days when Meta was still only about Stack overflow, but in an official way
 
It still is. Kind of.

@Alex "Is it going to be useful for Stack Overflow, Super User and Server Fault? No? Then why should we care about it?"
 
6:07 AM
What I meant :P
 
Well I'm glad you agree with yourself.
 
@Jenayah it’s the only thing I can think of but I thought stuff could go through multiple times
 
Since I once started an answer with: I am aware that this answer argues the opposite of my other answer.
 
Nothing wrong with that
Especially if you can base both in evidence
 
True. though sometimes I would stick them in the same answer.
 
6:30 AM
Aye, depends how much evidence you can gather in my opinion. If it’s just a sweeping statement and one line disagreeing with one point could be best in the same one

1. add a blurb from somewhere which isn't optimalbut still a better answer
2. do a massive edit with panels and all the comics-id good stuff, but it's both a massive edit _and_ answerer might not want NSFW content linked to his account (then again, answerer is an unregistered hit-and-run last seen on the day they poste
Any advice?

Post a cw answer.
 
If someone had posted a one-word answer "yes", should you not be able to post a detailed answer that also says "yes"?
 
SQB
Although in this case, knowing is half the battle.
 
7:14 AM
@Alex it's different with story-id as the biggest work is actually finding the book/movie etc
 
@Jenayah Part of answering is also writing a good answer. If no one has done so so far, there's no reason why you can't. Especially since you mentioned that you did a nice amount of work.
 
@SQB dunno. There'ed still be what you'd call "substantial research" (from scifi.meta.stackexchange.com/a/7126/98028)
 
SQB
A cw answer would make sense here, as it is a community effort — you and that unregistered drive-by user. But I won't fault you for making it a regular answer.
 
I think community wikis are more for answers that are ab initio a community effort.
 
@Alex that's the intended purpose, but then again when the system was designed they hadn't thought of identification cases yet, I reckon
@SQB true.
@Alex well the nice amount of work is really only reading an old pulp issue of Vampirella
It's more "substantial research" than name-only but I did have access to it so...
 
7:18 AM
@Jenayah Yeah, but lots of things can be considered a community effort. Should I make an answer a community wiki because you had a helpful comment in chat? We have to distinguish between answers that are designed to be community efforts and answers that just happened to have received help.
Basically, the point of a community wiki is not to remove the reward; the point is to foster collaboration. The lack of reward is merely the byproduct of the fostered collaboration. So I don't think there's a need for a self-imposed community wiki.
Also, how do we define "work"? What if I know an answer without doing any work? What if I spend a couple of seconds googling and find the answer. I think it's best to not judge how much work goes into a particular answer, because it can get pretty messy.
 
Well it would kind of set a collaboration since one provided the work and the other provided the panels. It also shows future readers that name-only answers should be expanded, I reckon
@Alex story-id found with memory or a quick Google search is still okay as long as they respect story-id answer guidelines
 
This does not seem like a case for a CW answer; you’re not trying to get others to help with the answer
 
question is more about duplicating answers
 
@Jenayah That's unintended collaboration. Like if someone makes a helpful comment. And posting a better answer will be a better show for future readers.
They will clearly see the difference between a good answer and a not good answer.
 
There’s a difference between duplicate answers and answers that contain the same answer
 
SQB
7:26 AM
Of course, it's easy for me to forego the reward; I'm at the highest level of rep that matters for privileges.
 
It's more about the ethics than it is about the rep.
 
Though you shouldn’t really be posting CW answers because “you don’t need the rep”
You’ve likely done quite a lot of extra work, that to me seems like it’s worthy of its own answer
and the reputation rewards that come with it
 
SQB
Then again, you haven't done a cw answer yet. You want to have the experience.

It should go without saying that you shouldn’t misuse a feature just to get the experience
 
7:31 AM
@SQB posting a CW answer just for the sake of it feels like posting a random crappy off-topic question, get it to -3, delete it and get the badge that goes with it
basically what TLC said
 
@Jenayah Now that's an idea.
 
Exactly, it’s like an odd way of “gaming” the system
 
@Alex hum, no, it's not :P
 
@Jenayah Yeah, posting bad content seems like too much of a challenge.
 
posting bad content isn't difficult but shouldn't be done in bad faith.... It doesn't get more complicated than this

Q: Evolution of Heinlein's treatment of homosexuality?

Ben CrowellIIRC the treatment of homosexuality in Heinlein's writing changed a lot over time. My recollection is that in an early book (possibly Stranger in a Strange Land?), a sympathetic or authorial mouthpiece character refers to gay people as "poor cripples" or "confused" or something along those lines....

 
there are more than two people involved in this though

8:15 AM
@Jenayah Because nobody's active on that site?
 
it's on HNQ though

@Jenayah You can check who reviewed it.
 
Because reviewers are bad?
 
@Alex I know
I just wonder how nobody caught it afterwards
it did survive two years
without being flagged as VLQ
 
@Jenayah Not everyone can be the youngest seeker in a century.
 
Cos people don't look at old posts

@TheLethalCarrot yeah but it was on the homepage at some point

Yeah at a similar time of the reviews who NANed it
 
@Jenayah I assume you got the reference, then?
 
@Alex Harry Potter first book?
What Ron tells Harry after his meeting with Wood?
(Wood? Woods?)
 
@Jenayah Yeah, but it's more specific.
 
@TheLethalCarrot sure but I'd thought someone took a look to check
anyway this one should pop in LQ queue just fine
 
8:42 AM
Later in the book it says: Not for nothing, though, was Harry the youngest seeker in a century. He had a knack for spotting things other people didn't.
 
Oi MithNumbers!

@TheLethalCarrot oh I would know

@Jenayah Wood. (Unless the French translation changed it.)
 
@Alex that or the Headmaster wanted to give some love to the sidekick
@Alex it's Dubois in French
But "bois" is both plural and singular so y'know
 
@Jenayah That's rather... literal.
Do they also translate other people's names?
 
yeah
Some
Snape becomes Rogue
("rogue" has a different meaning in French)
 
Interesting. I don't recall the Hebrew translation translating the names into words.
 
French rogue ~= English haughty

Hooch became Bibine IIRC

to be honest it's fine

@Jenayah Thanks for the heads up, I totally missed that.
 
It's supposed to be a children's book with funny names (the first one at least), makes more sense to tur it into something understandable by foreign-speaking kids
@SQB you're welcome
Grubly Plank was proabbly changed too but I don't remember into what
ah the houses' names obviously
 
9:00 AM
Poufsouffle, Serdaigle, Serpentard, Gryffondor
Neville Longbottom became Neville Londubat
or Longdubat not sure of the spelling
 
Makes me wonder why the Hebrew translation, which had no problem inventing things, left the names as they were.
 
Mad-Eye became Maugrey Fol-Oeil
which is still in line with the original name
Pomfrey became Pomfresh
(yes, I'm currently browsing a Wikipedia list of HP characters)
Newt Scamander became Norbert Dragonneau
 
@Jenayah So there are two Norberts?
 
aye
but there are several redundant names in HP books

9:11 AM
@Jenayah Well, those are not quite proper nouns.
 
true
 
@Jenayah Knew that sounded familiar:
"Hoist with his own petard" is a phrase from a speech in William Shakespeare's play Hamlet that has become proverbial. The phrase's meaning is literally that the bomb-maker (a "petard" is a small explosive device) is blown up ("hoisted" off the ground) with his own bomb, and indicates an ironic reversal or poetic justice. The phrase occurs in a central speech in the play in which Hamlet has discovered a plot on his life by Claudius and resolves to respond to it by letting the plotter be "Hoist with his own petard." Although the now-proverbial phrase is the best known part of the speech, it and...

For some reason I thought it was from Harry Potter. Must have mixed it up with the equivalent "impaled upon your own sword".

Georges Braque (; French: [bʁak]; 13 May 1882 – 31 August 1963) was a major 20th-century French painter, collagist, draughtsman, printmaker and sculptor. His most important contributions to the history of art were in his alliance with Fauvism from 1906, and the role he played in the development of Cubism. Braque’s work between 1908 and 1912 is closely associated with that of his colleague Pablo Picasso. Their respective Cubist works were indistinguishable for many years, yet the quiet nature of Braque was partially eclipsed by the fame and notoriety of Picasso. == Early life == Georges Braque was...
