I will resolve any answers to these questions as soon as I see the xkcd posted for the given day and have time to resolve. If it ever appears that the post was skipped (I don’t see anything before the next usual post day) I will resolve all answers to N/A, with the exception of any questions regarding whether or not the xkcd is posted late. If the answer is ambiguous, I will wait to see thoughts posted on explain xkcd, and will either resolve or conclude N/A by the next regular post day based on the possible consensus there.

Others are free to add options. I will delete duplicates and ask regarding resolution criteria for potentially vague options, or questions that I am not sure how to resolve. If you believe that there is potentially a vague option, feel free to comment so we can address the issue as early as possible.

I may bet in this market.

So is this determined by the first appearance of the xkcd comic? Cueball and other stick figures can be added, and the existence of pop-ups (e.g. "balls falling into your cell should be routed to the outputs at a steady rate" and others) could count as more than one panel. Another complaint that holds less water but is still not completely farfetched is that the comic is space related since black holes and white holes are availabe.

@PseudonymousBosche24f Yeah, to be honest, I was in a bit of a rush when I resolved, and my computer kept crashing. I’ll at least partially refund you. If anyone else feels that some of them should be resolved differently, I’ll refund them partially as well

The comic will be space-related

If the comic references a solar eclipse, will this also resolve to true?

@EricYager That is the standard I am using, yes

I assume this should be Friday, April 5th?
