7:57 AM
@SQB Did that second dupe answer get flagged?
 
SQB
@TheLethalCarrot I flagged it for deletion. But both came up in the Late Answer Queue, the (slightly) newer one first.
I edited that a bit and approved it.
Then I saw the older one and went to check the question and all its answers.
If it were up to me, I'd disallow multiple answers from new users.
Multiple answers are uncommon anyway, and coming from a new user, they're more likely to be a mistake then anything else.
 
They can't blanket disallow, I think they get multiple warnings though... and mod flag? Cos I don't think it made it to queue
 
SQB
Why not disallow for new users? Make adding multiple answers a privilege.
 
Well the change would likely have to affect most of the network, if not all, where multiple answers/multiple approaches are fine
It may (though I'm not convinced) make sense here but it wouldn't on other places on the network
 
SQB
Let's keep an eye on answers by FredWeasleyfan, by the way. Short answers without reasoning or references; needed to be edited for capitalisation and punctuation.
Well, yeah, I would like to see that across the network. Multiple answers are fine here too, especially on , but multiple answers by new users are more likely to be a mistake than actually two answers.
 
8:11 AM
Not saying they're not more likely to be a mistake but the general rule of thumb on SE is to allow benefit of the doubt/assume best intentions and what not
And you can't do that if you're blanket disallowing anything that comes your way after the first answer
 
SQB
There's a pop-up shown already if you add another answer to a question you've already answered. That could be adjusted.
 
I thought it already was for new users?
Or is that just a FR I saw a few years back?
 
SQB
> Are you sure you want to add another answer?
You could use the edit link to refine and improve your existing answer, instead.
That's what I get when trying to add an answer.
The button reads "add another answer" too.
A new user, say below 100 rep, could get:
> You're trying to add another answer. You need to have earned 100 reputation on this stack to do that.
You could use the edit link to refine and improve your existing answer, instead.
 
I don't like the blanket ban on another answe myself
The dialogue already gives them enough warnings too, if they aren't reading them... tough
On a different note...
This is NAA right?

@CorvoAttano - Where to start reading X-Men is kind of a tough question. If you're looking for a jumping on point, Marvel's restarting the main X-Men title shortly (UNCANNY X-MEN #1). I won't say it'll be a completely clean starting point, but it should be a reasonable place to start.
I haven't read them yet, but the recent X-MEN: THE GRAND DESIGN mini-series seem to be summing up the key events from the X-Men's history from the 1960s forward (I think the latest one should be late 1970s/early 1980s). That can give you a background on some characters.
 
@TheLethalCarrot By the way, have you seen the Worldbuilding site's new design?
 
Have now, that seems to work quite well
 
So, I think that the image could be fixed rather than scroll...
 
@Catija I hadn't, so I just checked and good work
 
2:49 PM
Well I meant more when you extend the width not scroll down
 
hope we can get something like this too
 
@Jenayah Thanks! I'll let the designers know. They worked really hard on it. :D
 
@Catija please do, it would really have sucked to loose WB's gorgeous theme - glad it's been heard :)
 
@TheLethalCarrot Hmmmm... I'm not sure. For WB, the image is locked to the left, so I'm guessing that's how it'd need to be for others.
 
Matches what amf said when he had a poke around then
 
2:51 PM
@CorvoAttano Honestly, it's really hard to pick a good starting point, given the complicated histories of some characters. Jean Grey was one of the original X-Men - when faced with near-death saving the team from a radiation storm in space, she was placed in a restorative cocoon, and a cosmic entity called the Phoenix took her place, and in fact died as her (after the Phoenix entity destroyed a world of broccoli-like aliens).
 
@Catija Now we just need one for SFF again and I'm sure most of us will be happy :)
 
A few years later, the real Jean Grey came out of the cocoon, and resumed her life. In the meantime, the love of her life, Scott (Cyclops) Summers, had married a clone of Jean, and they had had a son, Nathan Christopher Summers, who would be sent to the future and become Cable).
That takes you into the 1990s on that character.
 
@TheLethalCarrot amf?
 
After looking at the code on other sites, the restriction will probably be more on file size than tile size. The tile will likely just be repeating from the top left corner, so we can make an image 1920+px across and it'll just look like a full-width background. — amflare 21 mins ago

She's since married Cyclops, died again, had her younger self come forward in time, and came back again.
 
2:55 PM
@TheLethalCarrot Ah. Yeah, we have a few options. We can fade the image, have it repeat indefinitely, or have it appear a single time like on WB.
 
Okay coke, hopefully we can get something sorted then

The Cybermen are a fictional race of cyborgs who are among the most persistent enemies of the Doctor in the British science fiction television programme, Doctor Who. Within the context of the series, the Cybermen are a species of emotionless space-faring cyborgs who look to co-opt human beings or other similar species to join and populate their ranks. First appearing in 1966, the Cybermen were created by Dr. Kit Pedler (the unofficial scientific advisor to the show) and story editor Gerry Davis. The Cybermen have seen many redesigns and costume changes over Doctor Who's long run. Over the years...

Good idea. Haven't really worked it out, though.

I thought just keeping it aligned on the right, where we don't use the margin, then fading the left side to a light colour, to go behind the margin we do use.
 
hmmm...
it's still quite dark
probably too dark for it to match with the tabs' colorr
@SQB uh? The right margin is full of useful stuff
or do you mean the right background margin? It's less of an obvious waste of blank space than the left margin

@RDFozz why the arrowverse tag?
 
You asked as I was adding a comment:
As the OP hasn't shown up since shortly after posting the question, I've taken the liberty of editing the question and adding the arrowverse tag. As that's the depiction of the Flash that probably reached the most people as of Spring of 2017, and as I think that's the main place I've seen that effect, this seems likely to be what was intended.
 
@RDFozz oh, sorry :p
 
No worries - I obviously agree the question is reasonable, since I was already answering it!
 
;)
The question (as in, the post question) is still not very clear though
except for "duh, if it hurt people basically all the town would be dead after two episodes"
 
Oh, i never meant to suggest the question was particularly good. I think the first comment is probably an adequate answer.
 
8:00 PM
@RDFozz in the name of science maybe, in the name of comic books logic this one is more on point :p
Any inconsistencies or questions that involve the Flash can be answered with one word, Speedforce. — user2920788 Jul 24 '17 at 19:35
 
Good point!
 
(don't get me wrong, I love comic books, but my oh my I don't read them for science and consistency :D )
Marvel/DC superhero ones I mean... There are of course some other comics books/bande dessinées/graphic novels that are an entirely different matter
 
(Pedantic aside on that comment - of course, Speed Force is two words)
Understood. I've been reading comics probably longer than you've been alive (43 years). And, I'm just obsessive enough to still try to make things consistent when I can.
For example - in the late 1970s, in FANTASTIC FOUR, first Ben (the Thing) lost his powers due to overexposure to the Hulk (keep your mind out of the gutter :-); then, shortly after that, Reed lost his stretching powers (implication was due to age). In the FF, Reed's stretching powers finally gave out a day or two after Galactus turned Ben back into the Thing.
However, In Ben's team-up book, MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE, Ben had a few stories where he was depowered (he wore an exo-skeleton Reed whipped up), then when on an extended trip with his girl-friend Alicia, where he occasionally griped and moened about being a monster (so, his powers were back). And when he got back, Reed guest-starred in the book, and he hadn't quite lost his powers yet!
I can handle retcons and what I like to call conplants (retroactive continuity that doesn't change past events, just adds things that we hadn't seen before), but this is just sloppy on the part of the editors not to notice something like this.
(he still grumbled 40 years after the fact).
