I marked this comment as 'obsolete' since it related to the future release of a film, but one that is now released.

I don't think this can be confirmed until the film is released on streaming or home video, but some online sources are claiming that the photos of Franklin crew members Jessica Wolff and Anderson Le are identifiable as Kalara and Manas. I supposed they may be recognizable as the actors' real human faces? If so, that's a neat easter egg.

At best it seems to be an answer in comment form but it's certainly outdated (superseded by events and my answer) and hence no longer serves a useful purpose.

Why was it rejected by a moderator?

    I can't say why it was rejected, but I'm fairly sure that the purpose of the "obsolete" flag is not outdated information in comments. It's comments that reference aspects of the question or answers that no longer apply (edited, accepted, etc.) or that are irrelevant once a single user has seen them. – Adamant May 14 '17 at 17:36

    obsolete comments are those which served a purpose once upon a time but no longer. This comment once served the purpose which it no longer does. – Edlothiad May 14 '17 at 17:59

    @Edlothiad - I'd be rather cautious about deleting comments simply for referencing out-of-date information in the real world, or (particularly) for being "superseded" by an answer. – Adamant May 14 '17 at 18:51

    you should never be cautious about deleting comments. Comments exist to be deleted. – KutuluMike May 14 '17 at 20:54

    @KutuluMike - Hence my surprise. Out of 1000+ flags I've raised, I've only had a couple declined and I can't remember the last time I got a rejection on an obsolete flag. – Valorum May 14 '17 at 21:11
  • @KutuluMike - They are meant to be more ephemeral than answers, true. That doesn't mean that we don't have specific comment flag reasons with specific purposes. Nor that we don't need a reason to delete comments (as you seem to be saying?) – Adamant May 14 '17 at 21:37
  • @Adamant we don't need a reason to delete comments. That's the point. – KutuluMike May 14 '17 at 23:38
  • If that were true, there would be no need for flag reasons. ;) – Adamant May 14 '17 at 23:42
  • there isn't a need for comment flags reason. They're just convenient. – KutuluMike May 14 '17 at 23:48

    Follow-up question: why is one rejected comment flag worth a whole meta post? :-) – Rand al'Thor Mod May 21 '17 at 17:26

    @Randal'Thor - Because I didn't understand why it had been rejected and because it's such a rarity for it to happen – Valorum May 21 '17 at 18:26

    @Randal'Thor: Follow-up follow-up question: why is one misunderstood or confusing thing worth a whole meta post? Possible answer: because that's what meta is for. – Ellesedil May 22 '17 at 22:42
