Happy New Year, +0000 timezone offset (UK)!
 
On general principles, I upvote all but the absolute worst-written story ID questions. However, some of those fanfic questions make me feel like I should reconsider.
Questions about Transformers continuity also often annoy me. Even without the Michael Bay movies, this is a universe where it somehow makes sense for evil robots to be able to turn into thirty-foot-tall handguns.
 
Hurry up and get some reputation quickly, folks. This may be your only chance to be at the top of the year standings.
 
12:15 AM
@Alex mmmh... Isn't midnight UTC passed yet?
 
@Jenayah 15 minutes ago. So the standings reset.
 
Ah, I thought you meant for 2018
 
Which also means you won.
 
?
New user thing?
 
How many other competitions are we in?
 
12:19 AM
Revival badges
 
Ah, indeed.
 
Some chess too
 
You have to remind me?
 
Well technically @Mith is leading that one
 
If we play enough times, I'll probably win eventually.
 
12:22 AM
Aye
Oh and you beat me at the Christmas elf game ;p
 
That's probably because you spent all the time playing the penguin one instead.
 
*killing the penguin
Seriously how come PETA still hasn't tracked me down
 
Must be the ninja mask you were wearing.
 
Ooooh that has to be it!
One more reason to like Winter Bash, you can drown penguins all you want as long as a community approved of you three times
 
I guess I'm unapproved then.
 
12:29 AM
No ninja hat?
 
Nope.
 
Pretty sure you could have gotten one on Movies
There must have been some HP questions
 
I don't have an account there.
And I don't know the Harry Potter movies that well.
 
Meh, it's three clicks away
Well there are some book-based answers I think
Mainly for unclear back story due to poor direction
Yes Half Blood Prince adaptation, it's you I'm looking at
 
Answering a movie question from the book is not quite as bad as the reverse.
 
12:33 AM
Aye
 
Not sure about how to describe this one, but there are 8 questions under it
 
@Stormblessed honestly this one doesn't feel very useful. I think we should get rid of it
 
@Stormblessed More than half are asked by the same person. Maybe he has some idea?
 
@Jenayah Yeah
 
It doesn't really fit SE's tag model, it doesn't make sense to be an expert in "backstory"
 
@Jenayah Oh, we actually follow that criterion?
 
@Mithrandir can you add to that "to-nuke" tag list of yours?
 
@Stormblessed Didn't have much to say for the main part
 
@Alex when I need a more or less valid excuse to justify a tag nuking, yes, we do
@Stormblessed this one should be synonymized/merged with IMHO
 
@Jenayah Should have kept then.
 
12:43 AM
Well no, we don't really have water benders experts
 
Can you be a water expert if you hate swimming?
 
I just remembered that "Howard the Duck" is described as a "water expert" in the film version... and he can't swim at all.
 
There are black holes experts who've never been in a black hole, so I'm tempted to say yes.
 
Well I'm apparently the biggest expert on contradiction on another site.
But I've never contradicted anything.
 
A future contradiction gold tag badger?
@Alex didn't you post a answer of yours in chat a couple of days ago starting with "I'm aware this is the opposite of my other answer"?
 
12:48 AM
At the rate the questions are asked it would probably take at least a decade.

A: Is the mitzva of 'Shikcha' the act of forgetting, or the act of not going back to collect what was forgotten?

Alex[I am aware that this answer argues the opposite of my other answer.] If the person who asked you this riddle meant that the guy can fulfill the mitzvah simply by forgetting (i.e. if he never realizes that he left anything and does not even know that someone took it), it would seem to be contrad...

 
@Jenayah Yes, but didn't we establish that that was because of the multiple users on my account?
 
@Alex when I need a more or less valid excuse to justify messing with you, no, we didn't
 
@Alex Why are there multiple users on your account?
 
@Stormblessed To uphold Mithrandir's theory that I'm < 1 year old.
No wait, to refute that theory.
Wow, I'm confused. It is to uphold the theory.
 
12:51 AM
@Stormblessed so that his mom doesn't become an elephant
 
@Jenayah Skipped a few steps there, I think.
@Jenayah No excuse is required for that.
 
@Alex The whole ladder. But it's funnier that way :P
 
I think that managing to give two opposite but equally compelling answers to a question may be considered one of the highest achievements of Jewish hermeneutics.

@Stormblessed If you truly want to understand, read about 1,000 messages starting from:

@Jenayah Tell that to RDFozz.
 
Happy New Year strangers!!
 
12:54 AM
@Buzz Exactly.
 
@manooooh you too!
 
:):):)
 
Anyone want to make a better description? I was rejected and agree my thing for it wasn't so good
 
Eh, I think every tag excerpt I've ever proposed was just "Simply defining what a [tag] is".
 
@Stormblessed on second thoughts there are only four of those... Let's re-tag them at some point and call it a day
I think
 
1:00 AM
@Jenayah I'll do it
 
Don't forget to fix the rest of the posts if need be
 
Need my edits approved, just got one left to edit but hit the limit

Q: What would happen if you ate food made from mirror-chirality amino acids?

nick012000In Mass Effect, there are a couple of alien races who evolved on planets where life forms use animo acids whose chirality is the mirror image of the amino acids used by life on Earth. If someone were to consume food from such an alien planet, what would be the physical result? I know what the ca...

1:06 AM
Two reasons: don't push too much old stuff on the homepage, and there's a rule of thumb that you shouldn't have more than 5 of the 15 top posts edited by you
 
Just switch with , someone
@Jenayah Why not (the second thing)?
 
Later, bumping five old posts at once pushes new questions too far down

A: How many tag edits should we allow per day?

phantom42The guideline agreed to in the past within Mos Eisley, with approval from mods (at the time) was 5 of the top 15 posts on the most recent filter of the front page. Most weekdays, this rule worked just fine, pushing the edits out of the top 15 reasonably quickly with regular site activity and al...

 
What happened to Mos Eisley? Wasn't it chat here?
 
@Stormblessed It must not be spoken of.
 
Things happened ;)
 
1:09 AM
@Alex Why not?
 
Basically it had a "bad reputation" (disputed, but not the point), some things went downhill and it got shut down forever. As it's still a touchy topic, the general idea is not to shake ghosts too much and just moving on
 
27
Q: How come our main chat, Mos Eisley, got frozen this time?

MöozMos Eisley is currently frozen#, apparently indefinitely. I assume it has something to do with the users mentioned in @Shog9's banner, but is it possible that we be told - at least in concept - what happened in our room to make it get frozen again? If the rest of you want to create a new room...

 
(Mos Eisley was before my time, but that's basically what I've gathered over time, and I think that's a reasonable thing to do)
 
I stayed away from Most Eisley. It really could "be a little rough."
 
@Jenayah Have you checked it out since reaching 10,000?
 
1:14 AM
@Alex I took a peek. But browsing other people's discussions is no fun when you weren't part of it and don't have much idea of what's going on (and don't want to work it out), so I didn't spend much time on it
 
So people were just jerks, or something else?
 
Fun fact:. The name of the actual cantina in A New Hope was "!"
 
@Buzz According to what source?

Q: Why did our primary chatroom get nuked?

EndgameWell, I just came to know that we have got a new primary chatroom with the same name. When I visited the old one, I saw that it was frozen (by @Shog9♦) and there were 37000+ users inside it. This certainly is a rare event and people are curious. So, I think @Shog9♦ himself should answer this. He...

 
goo.gl/images/5HYLC3. Have a look at what's written over the doorway.
 
1:18 AM
@Stormblessed Some people posted inappropriate content. Detail of said inappropriate content isn't really relevant... There were bad "recedivist" patterns which eventually got shut off by the powers that be when they deemed it was beyond salvation.
 
You can see it from a slightly better angle in the actual film.
I thought that "mirror-chirality amino acids" question would be good to answer, actually. But it turns out I already did.

Q: 2018: a year in closing

Playing with the data a bit, I see that Science Fiction & Fantasy was ninth network-wide in percentage of questions asked that were closed as duplicates, and twenty-first network-wide in percentage of questions asked that were closed as Primarily Opinion-Based.
 
3:27 AM
@Alex Note that our story-id duplicate policy would naturally lead to a lower threshold for closing questions, and that those questions are only closed once they have been successfully answered. I doubt this is common across most stacks - there's nothing equivalent on Database Administrators, for exaple.
 
3:44 AM
@RDFozz Isn’t that a higher threshold?

Q: Why do the Q have genders?

Ham SandwichIt seems, at least from "Deja Q," that the Qs' appearance is just for show. The "main" Q is not really a male, for example. After all, Q tells Picard in the aforementioned episode that given different knowledge, he would have first appeared to Picard as a female. However, in Deep Space Nine's "Q...

 
4:06 AM
@Alex ì meant that dupe story-id questions are generally closed without any need to convince anyone that the questions are the same; it's not uncommon for there to be significant disagreements here regarding whether questions are truly duplicates. Again, in the coding stacks, places where the same basic coding principles are involved can result in unique questions because the way the principles are applied are different.
Or, because one cannot readily find something that clearly demonstrates the principles when one looks.
 
@RDFozz Ah, I thought you were trying to say that it's harder to close them as duplicates because it requires the questioner (both questioners) to confirm that they are the same.

@Jenayah Done
 
nice
 
@Jenayah Borrowing it is too much of a hassle, needs special software and stuff
 
ah, didn't know that
the transcripts are better
 
@Jenayah What do you mean by 'the transcripts'?
 
@Jenayah Asking on anime's chat got me "Soul Eater", but that's not it

Now that I think about it, it sounds like Dr. Slump (which reminds me I want to read that series as it's referenced so much in DB)
 
@Named vaguley rings a bell
 
@Jenayah Completely different, though
 
I don't think I made it past first volume tbh ;p

that's what the Niffler says
 
so niffler == cow ?
 
no
Niffler is the distant relative of a cross breed of a cow and a mole
and then that bred with a dragon
and VOILA niffler
obviously, that's just common knowledge

Well if they did breed... Yeah something's stuck somewhere

@SmokeDetector It says that only 300 rep is necessary...

What's with having emails in profiles being like "example at example dot com"? So bots can't find them?
