Was the introduction of revival and reanimator intended to be close to Halloween?

Yes. It was decided in a conspirative meeting by Jeff Ratwood, Bill the Wizard, Jarrod Nixon, and Kevin Monstrous. – Pëkka Nov 3 '10 at 13:31
Benjamin Doomke was also said to have had a part. – Pëkka Nov 3 '10 at 13:49
What's "reanimator"? I don't see it anywhere. – mmyers Nov 3 '10 at 15:51
I'm glad to see @Michael Myers has joined the Halloween discussion :) – user27414 Nov 3 '10 at 16:32
@Michael: Good catch. It was proposed, but doesn't seem to exist. I thought it did though. – Andrew Grimm Nov 3 '10 at 22:27

You give us far more credit than we deserve. Planning -- what is that?

I recall planning to press the build button. Does that count? – waffles Nov 4 '10 at 0:44

-1, we all know SO doesn't care about local time. – Pops Nov 3 '10 at 14:22
[werewolf]: posts good answers in some tags and bad answers in others. (Would have been more logical if it were time-dependent instead of tag-dependent, but this is the Stack Overflow Way™.) – mmyers Nov 3 '10 at 18:57
@Michael - How'd I do? (I can think of a few users who should get that badge!) – user27414 Nov 3 '10 at 19:38
Hey, not bad at all. I like it better than my version. – mmyers Nov 3 '10 at 19:50
Is anyone else bothered by the inconsistency of including Frankenstein (the creator of a monster) in a list of monsters? ... No? – detly Nov 4 '10 at 1:48
@detly - Doctor Frankenstein create a monster by patching together body parts from corpses. If you patch together an answer by copying and pasting from other answers, you get the [frankenstein] badge. – user27414 Nov 4 '10 at 1:57
@Jon B - actually, that does make sense. So is the real monster actually... man? tan tan tannnnn – detly Nov 4 '10 at 2:03
