Q: Dark/Mystery related cartoon with a blond protagonist

Mattia PaganoI used to watch a cartoon when I was a kid, sometime during the the 2000s(?). I remember that the story was pretty dark, or mystery related. The art style was something like Batman: The Animated Series. The protaganist was a boy, probably a teen or a guy in his early twenties at max. He had blon...

[ SmokeDetector | MS ] Blacklisted website in answer, potentially bad keyword in answer (93): Who are these very unusual superheroes on this 2nd hand T-shirt? by damien dada on scifi.SE
 
Yep, totally spam
 
@Jenayah I actually flagged it as Not an Answer.
 
@Alex retract your flag and flag as spam.
Pretty please.
 
@Jenayah Because of the link?
 
Yeah.

Q: Children on alien planet emerge from stasis/virtual reality early due to fire; group has to fight against hostile and manipulative computer

J. ScottI read this book a few years ago and I think it was published within the last decade or so.

They emerge ...

@TheLethalCarrot thx.
 
2:21 PM
Can some one pass me the can of worms?
The ones I opened.
 
Leave it on the meta will you?
 
@TheLethalCarrot, I don't know what you are talking about?
 
I assume this "can of worms" is in reference to the meta post and it's new answer... if it is just leave the discussion there
 
Why?
@TheLethalCarrot, Why?
 
You don't need to repeat your message and ping me, I'll reply when and if I want to
 
SQB
2:36 PM
Because I don't think anyone here has any desire to discuss the old room nor the events that led to its closure.
 
@TheLethalCarrot, Really, I did not see you answering. And you have not answered the question.
@SQB, Why not? B/c , I am not wrong?
 
SQB
It was over a year and a half ago, we like to leave it in the past. That's probably why your question on meta is down voted as well.
 
and the most active chatters here now and largely not the same as they were before.
 
SQB
So I'm asking you to drop the subject, at least in this room, but preferably in general.
 
that would be the best course of action
 
2:43 PM
@SQB, when is my question ever not down-voted? So if I don't drop it, I will flagged? I love this site, flag someone and then they disappear. That is how I have been banned so many times and the last one for a year. Why should I be OK with that?
 
SQB
@KyloRen I'm not a mod, so I can't speak for them. Also, I'm just one of many users. Sometimes I vote a question of yours up, sometimes I vote a questions of yours down. The last one I voted down, since I hate for that old history being dragged up again.
If you've been banned for a single swear word, that sucks. But if you address anything at all, address that, instead of bringing a very bad episode in the history of this site into it.
 
@SQB, I appreciate the honesty. I am not trying to make trouble. But , things like this is all I have to defend myself as an equal. Just b/c some users flagged me, I was banned. Why wasn't a mod, or an employee flagged for the same thing I was.
 
SQB
That I do not now.
But you have asked on meta and have gotten an answer on meta, even though the question isn't that popular.
I once more kindly request you leave it on meta and return to the subject at hand, which is the release of the Star Wars Holiday Special on Blu-ray.
 
@SQB, OK, I will comment here again.
 
SQB
Thank you.

SQB
Commenting is okay.
 
@KyloRen "flag someone and then they disappear" is not the case - not all flags are helpful or marked as such. I'd rather summarise it as "display consistent bad behaviour and then you disappear".
Since your return to the site, you've been contributing mostly in a good way. Why not just keep that up and leave the problems in the past, rather than dragging up all the negativity from the past?

Q: How can the Lestrange blood line still exist?

cantiaIf we believe the story of Leta Lestrange, her brother Corvus No other children of her father were mentioned.. But we know that a few decades later, some Lestranges do exist (mentioned in the HBP) and eventually there are Rodolphus and Rabastan Lestrange. Any ideas?

 
@Marvin as expected HP world craziness is always high here and due to this postS I know half story :D
Now I need to get rest half to save my money
So is tag for everything?
> Use this tag to refer to the fictional book called 'Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them', the 2016 film of the same name, or the five-movie franchise it began. Use this tag with the tag.
 
TBF if we're doing film tags, which we appear to be with TCoG, we should create a film tag. If not can be nuked
2
 
we probably do need to break those tags up a bit because each of the five films will get its own tag I'm sure.
So the first film needs a tag separate from the "franchise tag" and from the original book
 
Agreed
 
3:32 PM
Urgh, more retagging to do?
@Skooba Why? We haven't used individual tags for individual instalments of the HP franchise before.
 
I need to do similar for movies.se too but HP craziness is less there so less work
 
Either a film tag or merging TCoG into FB
Merging TCoG and so nuking it seems like the best option with how we've tagged HP
Keep it all consistent and what not
 
@Randal'Thor that was wrong too but people are afarid to touch it due to quantum
 
@Randal'Thor because when this site came out after most of the films were already released
 
@Skooba There were films?
 
3:34 PM
now for new films we need new tags so people can ignore them due to spoilers
 
Tagging Beasts And Where To Find Them \o/
 
same reason why every new marvel movie gets a new tag
@TheLethalCarrot No, can't hide spoilers!!!! HISSSSS SPOILERS HISSSS
 
SQB
I'd say for the original book, and for the films, and for the sub-franchise if it needs one.
 
@AnkitSharma steals and runs to Meta.SE

Q: Do we really need this many generic character related tags?

Terry McGinnisI have discussed this before but it was a little broad and came with no proper conclusion. So I am bringing the major part of it back as a new question, so it's not really a dupe. Generic character tags we have right now: characters character-motivation character-development female-character...

 
SQB
@AnkitSharma yes. The original quote has "Carthage", so I thought to be a bit cleaver.
13
A: Do we really need this many generic character related tags?

SQBNo We don't need any of these tags. They're all meta-tags that add very little info to the questions they're used on. They can't be used by themselves, really. female-characters has 3 followers, character-development has 1 and the others have none. These tags should be deleted.

 
Specially as it's sexiest tag
 
It doesn't feel sexist, but it sure as hell is useless

eeeeww capitalising each word is ugly...
 
In the rest of life titles are usually fully capitalized.
 
Fully capitalised I don't mind
 
Greetings, Programs.
 
One capital per word is too much
@Donald.McLean except in this kind of occasions of course
 
6:18 PM
@Jenayah That's what I meant by fully caapitalized. I should have been more precise with my language.
 
Title case is a title style, and FWIW policy is to not change it
 
Anyway, greetings, Hubble guy!
 
Not saying you were going to change it mind you
 
@TheLethalCarrot I thought policy was not to edit just to change it... But if you can improve other things in the post... you know ;)
@Alex it's ugly
 
For the dupe thing I don’t think you can close to a question closed to itself so the reviewers would have to leave closed once one is closed
 
6:20 PM
@Jenayah I'll take your word for it.
 
@Jenayah if the only title change is to the style of title that shouldn’t be done

Oct 25 at 16:30, by TheLethalCarrot
True
:P
 
@TheLethalCarrot Maybe closed to itself is a special case, but I know I've closed a question as a duplicate of a closed question.
 
@TheLethalCarrot sure, no need to bump for that
even without bumping
but y'know if there's a tag to be fixed, typos or stuff...
 
@Alex aye I mean cto one closed to itself you can dupe to a closed question
 
6:22 PM
@Alex dupe chains aren't great
 
@Jenayah It wasn't a chain; the first question was closed as unclear.
 
eh?
If the new question was clear, why close it as a dupe of something unclear?
By definition unclear stuff should never be a dupe-target
 
it might not be clear but clear enough to know it’s a dupe
 
@Jenayah It was the same user re-asking his question.
So I told him to edit the original rather than posting again.
Mind you the second one was on track to getting closed as unclear anyway.
 
6:25 PM
(Though personally I thought that both were clear enough.)

Q: Vanishing patient

SalilCan't remember the name and author of the story where a traumatised soldier in a hospital vanishes and 'experts' don't understand that poets did this all the time and not a poet can be found anywhere.

 
To be honest there a few quirks/special cases I’m still trying to work out
And I think they’ve been tweaking some stuff recently
 
Jul 27 at 9:40, by Jenayah
[edit]and [fantasy.se] are great, I'll deffo use that next time. As for the noise removing, I know the policy, and my stand on that is I agree with it... but new users don't know that, so since it can appear as unwelcoming, robot-like, I'd rather cut that out of posts which have been here for a while. Call me naïve but I kind of like to stick to my principles ;D however if that's a bugger I can switch to stricter edits (or just let someone else do it)
eheh I've changed have I
 
7:03 PM
Everyone eventually comes round to removing noise... assuming that’s what you mean haha
 
aye
So @Alex
Inspired by this comment of yours...
I think context is taken into account. For instance, a simple search of the current chatroom turns up 63 uses of the same word, with little or no reprimand. — Alex yesterday
And my reply a while ago
yesterday, by Jenayah
Woops, it would seem half of them are from me :P
And me knowing I don't always apply self-censoring, and also think some swear words aren't that bad y'know
Here's my swear stat sheet in TREU... It's not a glorious one ahah n_n"
"crap" 36/121 ~30%
"shit" 31/63 ~50%
"fuck" 5/15 33%
"prick" 3/3 100%
"bitch" 1/2 50%
"bullshit" 2/6 33%
"damn" 52/142 37%
TOTAL 130/352 37%
bar some which were second-hand word but y'know what I mean
 
Crap and shit are generally okay in most chat rooms, certainly if you don’t overuse them. Also did you cater for the repeat words which you just posted in those statistics? :P
 
@TheLethalCarrot nah too bothersome
 
@Jenayah Can you clarify your numerators and denominators? I'd assume that the numerators are number of times the word appears, but....
 
@RDFozz number of times I said/total number of occurences
(in TREU)
 
7:10 PM
So I’m real life it’s off the scale? ;P
 
Ah, got it now I think. So, you're the only one to talk about what one does to one's finger on a thorn?
 
@TheLethalCarrot deffo
also I forgot freaking... 14/17 ahahah
@RDFozz exactly
I'm compassionate like that
 
“Freaking”?
 
@Jenayah That was quick for "sometime this evening".
 
@TheLethalCarrot Yeah, if you mean that literally, that's not much of a curse.
 
7:13 PM
@Alex Margin is important :P
 
@Jenayah May I suggest that you left out an important factor, though?
 
@RDFozz it's not? I thought it was ahah
 
@Jenayah Underpromise, overdeliver.
 
@Alex "ass" doesn't count
 
I don’t think I’ve heard of a use case for that to be a swear
 
7:14 PM
it's tweaked by Kick-Ass, smartass, badass etc
 
@Jenayah Not that you left out a word; you left out a consideration.
 
mmmh?
(be back later, dinner)
 
"Freaking" is on a level with "fudge" and "darn" - replacements for literal curses.
^^ or, given the stack, "frack" and "felgercarb", etc.
 
@Jenayah Well just looking at the statistics I might get the impression that you are just a swearing machine. But since I have actually corresponded with you I know that you're not. Most of your comments do not include swearing. So why is it that you have such a high percentage of the total room swearings? I would argue that it's because you have such a high percentage of the total room comments.
In other words, it's not that you swear so much, but that you have so many comments, and even if only a small percentage of your comments contain swearing, it will bee a large percentage of the total room.
According to the profiles, this room averages 1.9 thousand messages per week and you average 756 messages per week, which means that you are averaging 39.8 percent of total room messages. So your 37% of swear instances is actually less than would be expected.

:o !
Sounds better when you put it this way :)
Yeay for stats!
 
@Jenayah Well, we could still ban you anyway...
 
muh :(
 
@Jenayah But we'd lose more than a third of the room activity, so probably not.
 
One third... I spend quite some time here :P

Q: Is there a standard afterlife in the Cthulhu Mythos?

Robert ColumbiaH. P. Lovecraft's stories include several different, apparently independent ways that a person can become an undead creature after their own natural death (being raised from saltes, being reanimated with an injection of West's formula, using the Spanish doctor's process, etc.). Whether relating t...

@Jenayah Well technically, the numbers are for your total chat participation. But I think your participation in other rooms is pretty negligible compared to here.
 
indeed
probably 40 messages oiutside TREU... tops
 
Most of my messages are here too. Some of the other rooms I'm in are pretty dead.
 
Even Mi Yodeya?
 
@Jenayah Especially Mi Yodeya.
 
:/

Recent activity there:
Two in the last four days.
 
Still better than HSM chat I guess...

Hi everyone. I'm completely new here, as I'm usually found on SFF.SE. We were casually joking about Schrödinger's cat and I wondered if it had been explained why the guy chose a cat in the first place. Apparently this question hasn't been asked on the network (see this query). On the Internet in general, I've only found some idle-guessing-looking "pictures-of-cats" website which doesn't seem really trustworthy.
112 days ago and not even halfway through upscrolling...
 
@Jenayah Ha, the only two people in the room now are me and you.
But it is to be somewhat expected of a small Beta site.
 
true
 
Mi Yodeya, on the other hand, is a full-fledged site, yet still has very little chatting.
 
Is it less of a "communitiy" or stuff?
 
8:20 PM
@Jenayah Hard to know. I think a while back the room used to be much more active.
 
@Jenayah The bottom right number on a room infobox on a user profile ("currently in rooms" thing) is how many messages that user has sent in that room.
 
13900! :o
 
13.4k of your 13.9k were in here.
 
wait no
13 400
eh?
Where are those 500? oO
 
The others can probably be accounted for by comments moved to chat.
 
8:27 PM
A couple in comments chat probably
but not so much that I remember.
Anyway thanks for the tip :)
And welcome back! Hope you're better :D
 
3.9k of my 89.9k were in here o_O
 
only?
 
@Jenayah I'm still on break until next week according to my self imposed vacation, but thanks :P
@Jenayah Yeah. I'm surprised at how low it was.
 
Well once everyone is sharing, 3.8 thousand of my 4,382 were here.
 
Eh? What are you still doing here then? :P
/kick @Mithrandir
:P
 
8:29 PM
My introduction to chat was through SFF. I guess most of that was before the Incident™.
 
@Alex woah, even being in seven rooms frequently? Indeed they're dead.
@Mithrandir "Do not talk to me about the Dark Year!"
 
@Jenayah 1.) You (general) can't kick mods. 2.) You (specifically) can't kick people in general. 3.) That's not how you (general) kick people here. 4.) I'm socializing :P
 
@Mithrandir eh I'm using kick commands I remember from another chat :P
I know I don't have any kind of /kick powers ahah
 
Click on user > "kick" on desktop.
Tap on message > "..." > "kick" on mobile.
 
@Jenayah To be fair, a couple of them are alive and I just don’t talk much. But the others are dead.
 
8:35 PM
I'm normally in ~30 rooms at once. Most of them are dead, several are bot rooms, and a couple are some of the most active rooms on the network.
...hmm. Does Newt's suitcase still exist?
(The chatroom, not the thing in the movies.)
 
8:49 PM
@Mithrandir It's frozen.
 
Oh that's fixable
 
Not by me.
 
Fixed.
 
How did you post all those links so quickly?
 
I didn't. That's what happens to room feeds after the room gets unfrozen - the feeds try to catch up.
 
9:03 PM
But they're not shown as from a feed.
 
The name is Feeds
 
Ah, missed that icon all the way at the top.
