Professional and enthusiast currently working at Yelp. As a logician, I believe anything can be made possible, though not all roads lead to tractable solutions.

As an eclectic programmer, I'm not always the best person to answer your question. But, I do my best.

comment Clothing store access in Pokémon X & Y
@JonathanBaldwin Nice. I did this later, and received a big stylishness boost. When linked, pokemon-gl.com is also kind enough to unlock a badge associated this, marking each stylishness tier. Which is probably its own Guide Dang It, in a way.

For citation purposes: this is indeed from Pokémon X & Y: The Official Kalos Region Guidebook, p. 119, as confirmed by referencing my own copy.

Thanks. I just received my copy of this in the mail, and jumped back in expecting to see it posted. Most appreciated, flagged as AA. :)

This also does not appear to be correct. I wore a "set" and did not receive access. As before, completing the restaurant minigame gave me access wearing the exact same clothing, making me believe there may be different (or possibly overlapping) criteria here.

This did not work. Specifically, I purchased clothing from most of the shops in the game, and did not receive access. After the restaurant sequence, without changing clothes whatsoever, I was granted access. (And happen to be rocking a suave fedora and red plaid jacket. :))

+1, helpful. I understand the frustration here, since this comes up so frequently. Since I don't believe gaming.stackexchange.com/about is the right place for this, any way to sticky the thread for newer people?

-1. This was asked after reading the associated meta discussions, such as meta.gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/3300/…, and attempting to read the FAQ before forming my question. When a reasonable person attempts to use a tag in the context of the existing documentation, please update that documentation or point to an authoritative source. (Remaining discussion should possibly be redirected to meta.)

comment What lessons (and mini-lessons) are available in Art Academy: Second Semester?
Indeed it does. I can confirm as much from my own copy, which I caved into buying some time after writing this up.

Thanks for your answer. I eventually caved into the temptation to buy the boxed copy, though I have yet to complete it (shame on me). :)

comment Are you immune to the 5 death rule after you acquire the glow effect to your file stars?
No problem. This advice is corroborated from a few sources I'd read while working through the game, including here: gamespot.com/super-mario-3d-land/forum/… and, now, here: gamefaqs.com/boards/620831-/61148638, which also points out that deaths on levels you'd previously completed don't count.

comment Would a memory foam topper be a sufficient sound and vibration baffle for Dance Dance Revolution?
I had not. Thank you! -- Our solution, meanwhile, was an agreement with the neighbors on one side combined with migrating the dance pad to an area of the house with increased baffling, due to a floor plan designed for a tessellated set of washing machines in both apartments (which gives us increased wall stability and two extra rooms between ourselves and our other neighbors). This seems to have worked for us.

@FallenAngelEyes AFAIK, we have a thin (1/2 inch) carpet spread over hardwood and sound-insulating foam. This is ignoring all of the structural components, including steel rebar and the concrete used for the walls and foundation. Given the remainder of our complex has far poorer insulation than we do, I don't believe we have an even decibel rating being enforced throughout, and our stairs clearly have no insulation whatsoever. I'm going to leave the question unmodified, though, under the assumption that a more effective shock absorption strategy is just as viable in a different setting.
