    Gossip Girl, but fix the big reveal ending (you'd have to redo the whole thing though lol)

    Death Note, just one more season anything plz, a dynamic where the FBI or a government entity has the notebook would be cool.

    Game of Thrones - Jon Snow should at least do one thing that is awesome and coherent story telling after he spoiler comes back to life. And the last 2 seasons have to be replaced.

    The Grinch - a sequel that doesn't involve Christmas. Maybe he scams the nazis in WWII or finds his true origins.

    I mean the database would have the user ID, then the select clause will say lastactive_at > NOW() - 1 hour and only return a count, not a user id list.

    Would a "last active at" column in the user's table count as tracking?

    Not a feature request, but I find it to revealing how in the last decade the vernacular PM (private message) magically became DM (direct message, implication of private disappeared).

    Kind of weird, we have to spam our referral links everywhere before we can get in? Seems worse than google circles. Well anyways, here is mine: https://wt.social/gi/tabitha-negchleh/friends/n2km

    I really mean software that intentionally lifts PBP (and/or play by email) into a better experience than just repurposing a message board.

    Vaguely yes, but it doesn't sound accurate. /r/SmugIdeologyMan, like smuggies for people who aren't openly racist/homophobic/transphobic. It's a left leaning meme sub.

    Is this for diffs or for merge conflicts? Meld is much better than VSCode for merge conflicts.

    Its tongue in cheek, talking about people who are obviously extreme far right trolls with bigoted agendas, but claim to be "centrists" and try to pass off blatent racism as "just facts".

    I'm the only active mod on a sub that specifically criticizes far center fascists and I'm worried about what will happen if it grows 10x or 100x its size. Automod has been pretty good though so far.

    I think crystal could really benefit from some more examples. I wanted to do something with postgres but the examples were "last updated 2 years ago" or non existing.
