I figured since we had a CB event for it, we might as well have it in chat as well.

Q: Looking for an anime with three blue-eyed characters

lukiI'm trying to remember an anime I watched when I was younger. There were three main characters; two were siblings, a boy and girl. The third was also a girl. All three of the characters had rare blue eyes. One of the girls had short-ish red hair; the other girl had blue hair, and was a bit sweet...

Q: What are the implications of NSA surveillance on the average internet user?

nitrlIt would appear as though the tinfoil hat-wearing were vindicated today, as news broke of the true scale of the U.S. government's surveillance of its citizens' online activities, conducted primarily through the NSA and seemingly beyond the realm of the law. If the reports are to be believed, met...

Q: Reservations at a bar?

coleopteristIn Chapter 93 (part 3 of "Class Reunion") of the manga, Bartender, a customer who walks into Eden Hall informs Sasakura that he doesn't have a reservation. IIRC, I've seen this happen earlier too. Is it common for Japanese bars to require advance reservations? While I can understand booking table...

Q: How did Nanally and Sayoko survive the FLEIJA

aitchnyuIt's action leaves behind a very neat crater and turns matter in its radius into a vacuum (airborne units tend to get blown into the blast center). How did Nanally and Sayoko survive that?

Q: Will Uchiha Sasuke succeed , where Madara Uchiha failed?

NSDif the shinobi alliance wins , then after the war ... Sasuke will be at the same place as Madara was when the leaf village was set up.

@LoganM By the way, I never noticed your comment on the legal sources question, but I said "disallow asking about potentially copyrighted material sources", not just material in general.
 
3:36 PM
@LoganM is there a place in SE where i can ask for the identification of a music video?
 
hey
 
@JNat hey nat nat ;)
 
3:50 PM
lol @MadaraUchiha Of course now I can't reproduce that behavior of not all hyperlinks turning to titles.
But that was the reason I put the decorated links in there. xD
There we go: i.imgur.com/R0H68cD.png (look at the bottom)

Q: Help us answer these unanswered questions!

EricOur "% Answered" stat is currently at 88%, with our Answer Ratio at 1.4. However, it seems as though a lot of our older questions may have answers, and have just not received the attention they need. Of course, bountying questions or giving them good edits can increase their visibility and maybe...

@MadaraUchiha D:
It was more than I thought though. It's about 40 links, not 10. xD

Q: Why are there so many "in Wonderland" episodes?

kuwalyMany series that I have seen have "x in Wonderland" episodes where they have retellings/variations of Alice in Wonderland with the characters from the show. Examples of this include Ouran High School Host Club (episode 13), Black Butler (season 2 OVA 1 and 4), Cardcaptor Sakura (episode 55), and ...

 
@Eric What OS are you using?
 
@MadaraUchiha Windows 7
 
Doesn't look like that from the SS :o
 
@MadaraUchiha I use custom fonts, lol
 
oic, nice
 
4:20 PM
I customize most websites that I use, so... yeah
 
@Eric You don't change Anime & Manga, Anime & Manga changes you.
 
Both.

Is unanswered questions day working at all? The front page doesn't seem to have a lot of new answers on it.
 
@LoganM It doesn't appear to be. We got one from Madara after seeing the meta post.
 
11:24 PM
@Eric I don't think the policy is any different. In any case, the only reason we have policies banning questions about fansubs and other things like that is to avoid any questions which are likely to be illegal. That question is very clearly not illegal. There may be reasons not to allow that question or similar ones, but legality isn't one of them.
 
@LoganM Fair enough, I just wanted to make sure you actually got my meaning with that comment.
 
Incidentally, I decided to answer that one so that it will at least not count as unanswered. It's not a very good answer, but the way the question is asked there probably isn't any good answer.
 
I think that's the best answer we can get. Hence the upvote. I mean, Disney decided to be weird about their releases, and we can't do anything about that.
 
I'm still working on answers, but I have less time than I thought. Summer teaching is really crazy. Hopefully once that's over I'll have some time to write more answers. Hence why I'm only minimally participating today.
@Eric Did you ever graph the stats I posted?
 
11:40 PM
@LoganM Ah, no, sorry. Give me a minute.
 
@Eric nice
 
Thanks~
 
Ignoring the traffic, which we already knew was going to look good, the rest of the stats didn't do so well this time.
 
Total users is still climbing steadily. That's good.
The other four, though, yes.
 
Avid users has increased over the past 2 days as well, but it's worrisome that none of them are staying very long.
Even the users who make it to 200 don't seem to stick around, and most of the users above 1k have been here since the beginning.
 
11:49 PM
Yeah, that's what I'm most worried about.
We're getting lots of visitors, but no commitments.
 
Yeah, one would think it would be the other way around where we were a small community of avid users..
I rarely if ever google anime related stuff
 
With regards to Q/D, I don't think the recent drop is actually a problem. There's relatively little difference between 5 and 4 Q/D. If we start to drop down to levels below 3 Q/D, that would be serious, but with 4 Q/D I think we're actually better off. Part of the reason we have so few answers is because we have lots of questions and not lots of users. We can get back up to 5+ once we have a more solid user base.
% Answered and Answer ratio, though, really need to be improved. And we need to find a way to bring more users in and keep them here, though in the end it might just take time to do that.
