@Alex eheh :) that was one of my first answers
Eh? How come you didn't get Vox Populi?
 
@Jenayah Don't Know.
@Jenayah It's written in a much more informal style. Almost like a stream-of-consciousness.
 
@Alex nothing on Meta?
 
@Jenayah I haven't checked yet.
 
@Alex well if you look at the revision history you'll see it was originally only the first part, which I expanded afterwards when people nitpicked in the comments ;)
 
Ah, there is a Meta post that I think addresses this.
 
1:44 AM
Actually IIRC it got downvoted, then the DV was retracted after the edit :)
 
@Jenayah Yeah, it was obvious from the opening italics that there were some revisions.
Speaking of which, can I ask you a mildly personal question relating to this? (Obviously, feel free to decline.)
 
Sure
 
Had you written much in English before your participation in Stack Exchange?
 
Mmmh I had some penpals back in the day but apart from that I think I mostly read rather than write
Well bar the obvious English assignments which you always have to write anyways
 
I'm wondering, have you noticed an improvement (not that it was bad to begin with), possibly due to all the writing you have done here?
 
1:50 AM
I'm trying to remember whether I wrote on a more or less regular basis for other stuff
No, that was mostly it. Penpals and school assignments. I read a lot though, may it be comics, stuff online, books etc
 
@Alex what are the site analytics like, seeing as you have so much reputation
 
@Alex I think so. Maybe not in the rendered output but in the ease I have to write it
 
@CorvoAttano I have a lot of total network reputation. But I don't have 25,000 on any individual site yet, so I don't have access to the site analytics.
@Jenayah Well, I would only be seeing the rendered output side of things.
 
I've probably gotten better at gathering info together, put up an understandable summary of it, and display the lot in a formal(ish) way
Y'know, this is an interesting question. I think I'll dig up some assignments and stuff to compare with how I write today
 
@Alex So the 32.5k is total reputation? For me it shows my SF reputation; for others does it show an
 
2:00 AM
Probably apples and oranges though. Assignments deal with newspaper/poems/corpus analysis, not Superman depictions or Hogwarts tweaks :D
 
A lot more than 310 rep? The edit button isn’t showing to fix that accidentally sent message
 
@Jenayah But they both have sentence structure and stuff.
@CorvoAttano Yeah, in Chat it shows your total network reputation. The most I have on one site is 17,632.
 
What is my total reputation , then?
 
@CorvoAttano In Chat the window to edit is much shorter.
 
@Alex true, but one's written willingly, the other... Not always ;)
@CorvoAttano all the reputation you've earned on all SE sites, save for association bonuses
 
2:05 AM
@Jenayah I mean what is my current total reputation
Something broke and chat is the desktop site unlike every other page on SE
 
Doesn't show on mobile but probably easy to calculate
503 if I'm correct
Not sure how Area 51 is included
And come to this of it you had an association bonuses thingy on SFF too so maybe 403 instead
 
But it's strange that it shows 310.
@Jenayah Someone's forcing you to write about Superman and Hogwarts?

Q: SciFi Conventions on the east coast USA for 2019?

JosiefHello SFF Are there any Sci. Fi. conventions scheduled in the east coast of USA in the next year?

 
@Marvin Nope, none at all.
 
Isn't it off-topic anyway?
The convention question
 
@Jenayah I looked. As far as I can tell, it's not. The conventions tag exists (I edited to add it in), but isn't heavily used (5 questions including this one, 1 closed).
Currently, Valorum suggested it be closed - but because it's too broad, not because it's off-topic.
 
8:26 PM
@Jenayah There’s a user on Mi Yodeya who hasn’t been seen since mid-January, yet is in the top 20 or so for reputation for the year.
 
@Alex yeah, but those are retired users with answers in the top tags
I guess
 
True.
 
@RDFozz Makes sense. DNA analysis to verify that you're Slytherin's true heir.
About the new movie, did Spider-Man always have better than average hearing for humans, a high-tech lair, and an aptitude for hacking computer systems and making gizmos? Because that looked to me like he got some traits from Batman.
Of course, for a super-hero, trying to be more like Batman isn't the worst path you can take.
 
@b_jonas Which Spider-Man? I'm not aware of either the Miles currently in the 616, or the 616 Peter Parker, normally having a high tech lair. Better than usual hearing hasn't generally been referred to either (though a spider-sense could mimic that). Hacking isn't something either character is generally known for, but could have been presented at one point. Peter made the webshooters, a spider-tracer that his spider-sense could detect; his clone made some improvements on Peter's tech.
Following Otto Octavius' time in Peter's body, he did have a near-Stark level company, which gave him at least a few advantages, and possibly a (short-term) high-tech lair. At one point, he'd bought the old Baxter Building; from his time working with the FF, he might have knowledge that would have made setting up a hidden lair relatively easy.
 
@RDFozz It's spread across the spiderman. Miles seemed to have a better than average hearing, the previous Spider-Man of Miles's dimension had the lair, both the old Spider-Man and the pizza-eating Spider-Man made gadgets. Also the pizza-eating Spider-Man refused to teach a young side-kick just like the Batman in the Lego Batman movie,
and the previous Spider-Man in Miles's universe had an assistant without super-powers who worked completely in the background but was the one who actually did all the hard work of maintaining his lair in a good condition.
And of course all Spider-Man have lost a loved one when they turned to being a super-hero, but that's something very common among hero origins, not specific to Batman.
 
8:40 PM
Also, on the hearing thing - there was a storyline circa Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider-Man #27-28, guest-starring Daredevil, where Peter was temporarily blinded. His spider-sense gave him a near-equivalent to Daredevil's radar sense - he may have experienced better than usual hearing as well.
 
@RDFozz nearly Stark level? Wow.
 
From what I could tell, yes. Although it came together and fell apart awfully quickly.
Then again, Stark's companies have done that sometimes as well.
 
@RDFozz Still much better than Leto II's prophetic visions after he got blinded.
@RDFozz Yeah. With only Stark holding them together, that's to be expected.
I also wonder how much the four named villains of the film follow existing mythology villains and their back stories.
Knowing Marvel, they probably do pretty much.
Have to give something extra for comic fans with encyclopedic knowledge.
 
@Alex who’s R. Yosef Ibn Kaspi? Saw you own a room about them
 
Haven't seen the film, so I'm not sure who the villains are. It presumably has some connection to the Spider-Verse / Spider-Geddon storylines from the comics.
 
8:46 PM
@RDFozz I am guessing that at least one has a connection to the Ultimate Marvel universe, which is what Miles is connected to.

Joseph ben Abba Meir ben Joseph ben Jacob Caspi (1280 Arles—1345 Majorca), was a Provençal exegete, grammarian, and philosopher, apparently influenced by Averroës. His family hailed from Largentière, from whence his Hebrew surname "Caspi" (= made of silver) derived. His Provençal name was Don Bonafous de Largentera, or in French En Bonafoux de L'Argentière. He traveled much, visiting Arles, Tarascon, Aragon, Catalonia, Majorca (where he must have foregathered with Judah Leon ben Moses Mosconi), and Egypt, where, as he says in his Tzawwa'ah, he hoped to be instructed by the members of Maimonides...
 
@b_jonas Of course, since Secret Wars, the Ultimate universe is gone, and Miles is in the main Marvel U with Peter. I think Spider-Verse happened before that....
 
@Mithrandir so he’s notable because “He held the position that knowledge of the future, even by the prophets and by God, was probabilistic knowledge only”?
How do you type code in chat?
 
I sort of think that Secret Wars was meant to remove the Marvel multiverse. However, the popularity of characters like Spider-Gwen (and the existence of the Web Warriors comic) kind of killed this almost immediately.

Anyone else think there should be tags like 80s for story-identification?

@CorvoAttano You're welcome! Always happy to share!
@CorvoAttano I assume that would apply to when the story was published - however, most of the time, story-id questions can identify when something was read, but not necessarily when it was published. Even then, sometimes they've misremembered.

@CorvoAttano Still would seem pretty prone to mistakes. You might have read a story in a newly published anthology - but the story itself was first published 40 years earlier.
@Mithrandir I believe Marvin shows the current status of the question when it posts it into the chat. It won't update it with edits once it's shown in the chat, but I think (could be wrong) that, if it was edited before Marvin posts it to chat, it would post the edited version. Note that Marvin does show up/downvotes, so it's not showing it as it initially was posted.

@CorvoAttano You get those for answering questions with a particular tag attached. You get a bronze badge for a minimum score of 100 in 20 answers; a silver for a minimum score of 400 in 80 answers, and a gold for a minimum score of 1000 in 200 answers (all regular answers - community wiki answers don't count). Gold badges on a tag grant certain powers on questions with that tag; you can single-handedly close questions with that tag as duplicates, for instance.

@CorvoAttano And let's note, for the record, that you said that before the author rolled back your grammatical/spelling corrections. I agree (as per my comment on the answer).
To paraphrase what others have sometimes said - this answer needs some hate.

@CorvoAttano to follow on what @RDFozz said, what's especially nice with tag badges is that as they're related to tags, you can have very "unique" badges depending on your areas of expertise, and be like the only one with that very badge for a while :)

Q: How fast does the web gluid exit Spiderman's web shooters?

Major StackingsAs I was watching Spiderman swing and grab, swing and grab, as he traveled post haste across the big screen, I thought his commute time was quite impressive. How fast does the web fluid exit from his webshooters?
