Could also be a 'crying wolf' type of thing, where they raise false alarms to reduce the number of counterprotestors that show up the next time they actually do hold a gathering.

I hate Reddit Gold. It's basically super-upvoting for rich people.

Besides, if we were to have something similar here, it should be called Raddle Labour Voucher.

I think CC0 is better, since it has a fallback for jurisdictions where the concept of putting work into the 'public domain' doesn't exist.

That's very flawed logic. Level of detail does not correlate with level of truth.

Natural, but I also use Veet (hair removal cream) on my arms and hands once every few months.

I can assure you that I have far less hairier hands.

And if not, why the fuck not?

I have traits of social anxiety and avoidant personality disorder. Meeting new people and making friends is difficult and awkward, so I refrain from it.

I suggest it works the following way:

Every Friday, a sticky with the new episode of the day is posted, and the old one unstickied. People watch the episode and discuss it during the week that follows. On the next Friday, the post is unstickied and a new episode of the week is announced.

I still think City on the Edge of Forever is a good opener.

Sure, throw that in. These aren't necessarily my favourite episodes, just the ones I think will create discussion.

That's a good choice. Here are some of my suggestions:

  • A Taste of Armageddon (TOS)
  • The Doomsday Machine (TOS)
  • The Ultimate Computer (TOS)
  • Elementary, Dear Data / Ship in a Bottle (TNG)
  • The Drumhead (TNG)
  • Tapestry (TNG)
  • Suspicions (TNG)
  • Prophet Motive (DS9)
  • Far Beyond the Stars (DS9)
  • Death Wish (VOY)

I was thinking of all the TV shows (TAS and DIS excluded). With 52 weeks per year, 28 seasons of Trek and an average of 24 episodes per season, that's 28*24/52 = ~13.

TOS is more episodic than TNG, so that works well.

If we did one episode per week, going in order would take approximately 13 years and we'd rarely get to discuss the real interesting episodes.

About my theme, if I was to rename it, would everyone else who uses it (for both personal themes and forums) still use it, or would they all have to manually select it again?

Themes/revisions are referenced internally by UUID (i.e. a really long number). Changing the name won't break things at all.

When a source theme gets updated, how does one update their derivative?

Just edit the derivative and enter the name of the parent theme. It will set the parent to the latest revision of that theme.

What's with the border around the source viewer text?

highlight.js applies display: block to the <code> element, but the base style doesn't. This is a case of me forgetting to take non-JS users into consideration. I'm going to fix it by adding display: block to the .source-code class.

Are all single line input fields effectively the same?

For the most part. Check out form.less and the .text-inputs() macro in mixins.less.

Oops, I must have broken that when fixing a styling issue. I'm not at my computer now, so I'll fix it in the morning.

Ooh, I thought it had to do with resetting a flexbox oddity. Goes to show how much I know about this stuff.
