I watched the episode, love Black Mirror
But it's a thinker's kind of show
So much is dependent on how you see things and how you interpret things that happen
 
3:02 PM
Not sure you can find a this/that answer
@Jenayah thank you for looking
Of course I could be entirely wrong and have no idea what I'm talking about too lol
 
SQB
@MikeB not necessarily. The makers may have commented on that somewhere.
The answer may be "going by the sources we have, we just can't tell". But that does not mean it's primarily opinion based.
Asking "what do you think she should've done" is POB.
 
@SQB very good points
 
SQB
Very important too, since I too often see questions voted closed as POB when the answer is likely just "we don't know".
Also (but I'd have te rewatch the episode) there may be clues the querant has overlooked.
 
Doesn't seem really POB aye
basically what SQB said
Also why is scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/198020/… in off-topic queue?
 
I think I viewed it as a POB because it was asking for the motivations of one of the characters. The show wiki doesn't have anything besides who played the character. So would a "we don't know" be the appropriate answer?
 
SQB
3:17 PM
@MikeB yes, if you add a reasonable explanation why we don't know ("There are no clues in the episode and none of the creators seem to have commented on it").
Even better would be tweeting the creators and seeing if you can get an answer.
Perhaps Cairns was hoping to see the PM step down in disgrace and take his place.
 
@SQB are you going to make one tag per BM episode... ?
 
@SQB Me?!!! Tweet the creators?!!! But....but....I'm a nobody! Eh, I'll give it a shot. Who knows? We may get an answer.
 
SQB
@Jenayah yes. I figure they're more like short stories.
 
Nobody's a nobody!
except Mr Nobody
@SQB alright... that does seem like too much tags though
 
SQB
@Jenayah only for the ones we have questions about, though.
 
3:21 PM
sure, but still
 
SQB
And maybe only on the ones we have more than one question on.
Why too many tags?
 
I dunno I'm just not a huge fan of one tag per episode even if they're dissociate
though I see the idea behind it
I mean they're already covered by ... it's not like say one Heinlein short story which was only accessible through or
 
SQB
As long as we have character tags even for relatively minor Harry Potter characters, I don't think it's excessive to tag individual Black Mirror episodes.
 
you know what I think about character tags
especially HP ones
Oct 28 at 20:25, by Jenayah
@Alex the policy about character tags is that character tags are a mess and HP character tags are even more of a mess. Abandon all hope ye who enter here.
 
SQB
I think that even individual Star Trek episodes could have their own tags, such as .
 
3:30 PM
geez please don't
:/
 
SQB
Why not? Not each and every episode, but certainly the more notable ones like that one.
 
sure but doesn't it become POB which ones are the most notable?
I'm not a ST expert mind you...
 
SQB
A bit, maybe, but there certainly are some stand-out episodes.
 
@SQB Still strikes me as somewhat unnecessary, but it's a good improvement.
 
SQB
@Alex true, but tags that are primarily used on are... different.
 
3:41 PM
@MikeB For the record, if you do think a question is Primarily Opinion Based, you can flag it and select that as the reason.
@Marvin Voted to reopen. Not every case of someone not seeing something on the map has the same answer. Indeed, in this case, the answer should be that almost all the premises are incorrect.
 
@Jenayah gotta love how this was starred when I posted it, and now is starred again in chat nesting
 
My fault. And I was thinking that as I just starred it.

@Alex I admit I'm a big noob so I don't trust myself to make any kind of judgment so I ask here and figured you far more *cough experienced folks will know what to do :)

@MikeB The beauty of a flag is that you don't have to make the judgement. When you flag it it gets sent to other people to look at, much like when you mention it here.

@Alex they don't necessarily get "live" explanation of why they voted to close/leave open though
 
SQB
Partial answer:
 
3:58 PM
@MikeB nope, not an issue :)
Well spam and rude/abusive flags are for spammy and rude posts so it's not a "please review this there may be problems but could be salvaged" flag, but still a good flag
 
@Jenayah Sure, if you want to have a discussion about it, Chat is the place. But in Chat people can ignore the discussion (e.g. above) while a flag will send it to a queue where it has to be addressed for it to leave the queue.
 
worst case scenario you get a couple flags declined... Not a big deal. You can get a flag ban if you have too much but it would really have to be too much declined flags
 
@MikeB Some flags can be. But if you're just saying that a post should be reviewed to see if it's on-topic there's nothing wrong with that.
 
@Alex not really an ignore case, there had been clarifications before
 
@Alex @jenayah think I just took the term "flag" as inherently negative.
 
4:01 PM
and if one doesn't know they can just say so
 
Good to know it's not
 
@MikeB A flag can even be positive. Like "this post should be reopened".

@SQB There aren't that many questions to begin with, so why would we need separate tags for the individual works? That's just silly.

Yeah, I was just double-checking the spelling on e.g.

I just ends up depending on the franchise. Ones like Star Wars and LotR have them whereas Harry Potter and ASoIaF don't.

@Donald.McLean I don't know anything about Twilight, but from what I understood from above, the reason why it would be a bad idea is a different reason. For Twilight it's because there's not a "meaningful use case for a population that small" while for Harry Potter I think the problem would be that the different works are inextricably linked together such that it would be almost meaningless to identify that a question is about a particular work.
Not counting the truly separate works like the Fantastic Beasts series, where there are in fact individual tags.
 
SQB
7:02 PM
Which is something I disagree with. I think individual work tags for would help readers new to the franchise avoid spoilers while allowing them to answer questions about works they have already read.
Also, I may decide to re-read the heptalogy and answer questions as I go along.
I remain of the opinion that the most important tags on any question about a specific work would be a tag for the work, a tag for the franchise if applicable, and a tag for the author unless that doesn't add much (as with JKR and Harry Potter, for instance).
 
@SQB You can try searching for questions within the Harry Potter tag that contain the phrase Chamber of Secrets (for example) and it will probably return most, if not all, of the questions that are "based on" that particular book.
 
SQB
@Alex that's an argument against any tag.
 
@SQB But in other cases the particular downside of having the tag doesn't exist.
 
SQB
What is the downside of having and on a question about that book?
 
Because often a question about that book is not really a question about that book. It's a question about Harry Potter which just happens to have the locus classicus in that book. I.e. the same reason why you wouldn't put a tag for a specific chapter.
Take this question as an example:

Q: Was Ginny really used as bait because she was Ron's sister?

AlexIn the end of Half-Blood Prince Harry explains to Ginny why they can't be together anymore: "Voldemort uses people his enemies are close to. He's already used you as bait once, and that was just because you're my best friend's sister. Think how much danger you'll be in if we keep this up....

Is it a question about Half-Blood Prince? Is it a question about Chamber of Secrets? If I had included one of the quotes from the answer, we could even ask if it's a question about Order of the Phoenix. Should I use four tags just to describe the text that I'm asking about?
I think we can just say that it's not a question about any of the particular books. It's a question about Harry Potter which is based on multiple sources which happen to be in different books.
 
SQB
7:17 PM
It doesn't have to have individual book tags if it spans several books. But in this case I would tag it .
 
Well then aside from the unwieldiness and the potential diversion, we would also have to define what makes a question considered to be about a specific book? One quote? Ten quotes? The main thrust seems to be based on a particular book? It will likely become very subjective and unstandardized.
 
SQB

Neo DarwinUnsure. Book mentions that it's essential to have a clear mental picture of the location. It's possible that a place in a memory is unfamiliar but it's image is exceedingly clear so in theory the wizard/witch should be able to apparate/portkey there.
