    If so, what property does the color red imbue?

    Well
    A lizardfolk vampire is obviously a very lame kind of dwarf.

    If the strip was found, the question was answered. I'm not sure what you're looking for except to try to make people parse your exact meaning, which I'm not even sure is possible given the wording of the question.

    And if you're looking for the title of the strip rather than anything that actually appears in the strip, I think that's illegal, though I can't find an explicit reference to it in the first post.

    Am I missing something in the strip where the magic carpet being red implies that the redness makes it fast?

    Anyway,

    It came up once before. While there's no hard rule about it, my interpretation of the rules is that since the title of the strip is not actually on the strip's page, it's not valid for a question.

    I'd say it's a consequence of rule 3: Questions have to have an answer that is demonstrated by at least one, and no more than three, canon online strip.

    The index is not a canon strip, and none of the strips include the title, so an answer that depends on linking to here is not valid.

    Exactly.
    Tarquin's wording seems to be that he's providing evidence to his claim, namely, that this is his fastest carpet.

    Yeah, I saw that, I just didn't connect that the "red color" was an implication that "this is how you know it's my fastest."

    Yeah, but your explanation is more clear than mine and actually cites the rules.

    To quote Roman from Party Down, "I don't know... a squid? There are other options..."

    If this is the comic you're looking for, OQ. I'm not sure if it is, since she doesn't explicitly say "I'm not a ____," but she does explain that she's a half-orc, not an orc.

    Iím fine with it being an OQ, but I did check around, and found another argument about this in a previous trivia thread. It seemed to be concluded that strip names do count and arenít illegal. Also, the strip name directly answers the question.

    Hmm. I don't remember that being the consensus last time it happened, but if we need to have a vote, my vote is that strip titles should not be considered for questions.

    In the books, the pages have their names on them. That might not be a reason for names to be answers, and I might be fairly new to the trivia thread, but I vote yes.

    I vote that it shouldn't. This should be a test of how well you know the comic, not the archive, and the titles aren't included in the pages. It also means a lot of questions would be solved with a simple Ctrl-F.

    Maybe I'm biased though, because the only titles I remember are "Fault Lines" and "Breaking Up" which released when I first started reading.

    I agree that strip titles can't be used, the question must have an answer that's possible to prove by just the content of three online strips. Nor can any of the extras be used.
