comment How to say “Slice of life anime”?
@istrasci - Anime that doesn't really have a plot, but is basically just about the day to day going on of someone's (or a group of people's) lives. Arguably Seinfeld could be considered to be "slice of life"

comment What is the proper term for the use of archaic kanji?
@Bathrobe - Cleaned up the comments a bit to avoid prolonged discussion, but that comment relates back to a very niche discussion that I've been having about Japanese and Chinese artwork elsewhere.

comment Is the use of 先生 and similar titles context sensitive?
@Amanda S - The edit was intended as a clarification of the original question, from my standpoint, a new question on the same topic would be redundant.

comment Is the use of 先生 and similar titles context sensitive?
Ah, yes, and this is a bit more what I was driving at in the question. The teacher-student relationship is pretty obvious on school grounds and the like but outside of school or in collegiate situations where you might work in several different situations with someone it seems to get a bit more complex.

comment Is the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) a good measure of my Japanese language ability?
@YOU - That's only if you make a pure guess, if you can remove two answers as obviously wrong then you are only left with two which is where the 50/50 chance comes from.

Voted off topic, but something we should include in the site FAQ.

comment What should I look for in a dictionary to help me study?
@jkerian - Thus trying to find the right way to format the question: telling someone what to look for in a tool is going to be much more useful than telling them what tool to get.

comment What should I look for in a dictionary to help me study?
@jkerian - However, one could argue that that question would also get state fairly quickly and would be off-topic for that reason. That said, this question is formatted along the line of what you might see on programmers.stackexchange.com as opposed to stackoverflow.com proper.

comment What should I look for in a dictionary to help me study?
@jkerian - The degree of specific-ness is a bit of a meta question but basically I'm trying to format the question at the general "What should I look for" level that would cover everyone as opposed to the "I'm a [traveler / student / scholar], what would you recommend?" type question.

comment What should I look for in a dictionary to help me study?
@Ali - I disagree with it being off-topic. Lets leave it open for now (since we are in private mode) and discuss it over on meta.

comment What should I look for in a dictionary to help me study?
@jkerian - I've expanded the question a bit to try and cover all of the options.
