TLDR: username can be set to anything, so why not "Google", and as pointed out in the comments, the account being greyed out us because Google doesn't have an account on M&TV. The username I suppose a user could create an account with that name (but why?) Why not? Maybe user had fun, maybe something else. Why is your username Darren? Bad ...

No, we cannot! As detailed in the discussions to a similar question, waiting with asking your question just out of a fear of spoilers is exactly the kind of anti-information philosophy that goes against everything SE stands for. Also, how much time is enough? Who says that a week is the right amount of time to wait? What happens when someone does ask a ...

This has been specifically off topic since the creation of this site. It falls under the "primarily opinion based" close reason. From Grace Note's question linked above: Recommendations were in fact noted as off-topic during the definition phase, and there's no trace of them in the top voted on-topic questions. Everyone has their own favorite ______ ...

As the user who answered, I should perhaps weigh in here... I'm not a fan of ID questions and am, perhaps, one of the strongest critics of them as a whole on Movies & TV even though I've only been here just over 12 months. Unfortunately, there is no consensus, nor is there likely to be, about how much detail is enough to meet the criteria laid out in ...

WWE production and storyline questions are on topic. Is a question on WWE on topic? The sport related questions are not. Same with Game shows. Ex: Why was character x made a heel? Ex: How is jeopardy filmed? Off topic example: are pile drivers safe? Why do vowels cost money on wheel of fortune? Talk/chat show production questions are on topic, as are any tv ...

No This falls under our "off-topic/not suitable" rule of Locating or purchasing movie or TV content We are not a resource for images or any other such trivia. Such things can be easily obtained by free screen capture software yourself.

Stating in the "Draft your question" sidebar that recommendations and identification requests are off-topic would be useful, IMO. The same could be said of any of the off-topic reasons, but these two being the most common, an additional warning can't hurt. The review phase does throw a warning if you try to add the identify-this-movie tag (as it already ...

There are actually two different popups (both existed even before banning identification questions, just that they were both warnings, now one is an error). There is one popping up when you add certain tags (like e.g. identify-this-movie). This one is now a hard error, not letting you add the tag at all. This is the older one. It was originally proposed on ...

I once had the same feeling when other users tried to edit a post, which seemed trivial. But I asked myself, "What's wrong with the edited post?" and moved on. I think you should ask yourself "What's wrong with What was done to prevent Black Widow from getting pregnant?" I don't see any particular problem with the edited title. Nothing is wrong with ...

Seeing that Finding Nemo is very well a movie in every way, I don't see a reason why a question about it would be off-topic right away. But of course it depends on the particular question if it ultimately is on-topic or not and for that you might also want to consult the respective section of the help center. But in general proper questions about Finding ...

Possible Solution D Delete the second question, ask the user to repost it himself. Upsides: No double questions on the site. Downsides: User might not repost the second questions, so it would be lost.

Possible Solution A Put the question on hold until the user decides to split it. Upsides: No double questions on the site. Downsides: New users might be irritated. They might not split the question and we miss out on the content.

Unfortunately, one of the tools mods don't have is the ability to split questions. In essence it just comes down to the OP to take the criticism or have the insight to post multiple questions.

I agree with Paulie_D that it's problematic when the entirety of the question ultimately hinges on Wikipedia's specific plot-synopsis, which for all we know might be terribly incomplete or inaccurate. What this comes down to is basically reading a plot summary and asking "does this really happen in the film?", to which the obvious answer is either &...

Not the most important, but the "Draft your question" sidebar currently spells "tv" in lowercase letters. I'd say this should be switched to uppercase "TV". Related discussion at Is your question about tv or TV?. The same goes for the placeholder text in the title.

The question is: "Was Arya a Deus Ex Machina act in the third episode from the last season of GoT?" In it's current form, the question is on-topic but there's a slight possibility of it being considered by some members of the community as requiring "Opinion Based" answers which would drive it off-topic. The issue is (it seems to me) &...
