comment One word for something belonging to an era
Ok, obsolete, out-dated, old all fit in your sentence.

comment One word for something belonging to an era
I think the problem is that you want something that is related to a particular era, but then are asking for a general term that means related to an era. In use this is of no value: This chair is from an era. Yes, ok, and?? To be of use you should identify the particular era: This chair is Victorian. Now, I don't need to use your word at all; I just use the adjective for the particular era in question. And if you don't know the particular era, you can just say it's antique ;-)

comment italic g? double storey?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about typography and not the English language. I also think there are many false assumptions made in the question.

comment Is there a metaphorical word or phrase for a potential trouble maker?
You can simply say, "I'd better keep away from her- She looks like trouble!"

comment Is this sentence correct?
In conversation I'd probably say, "Someone tell her that's got to be an imposter, because he died!"

comment How to say “is constant in one year”? (Paper Writing)
No, that doesn't sound right. yearly data means that the data was collected each year, therefore there is a single value for each year: 1990: 1, 1991: 1.5, 1992: 2.1, 1993: 3.7 This of course means that that single data value is used for the entire year.

comment Word for “descending out of control”
hurtle doesn't really suggest "out of control" all by itself. Those cars and trucks hurtling past were probably being driven quite nicely. Also I think you don't want to hurtle bottles you want to "hurl" them. Well, I guess I stand corrected, the dictionary does define hurtle as to hurl or fling- I never used it that way before.

comment What is a word for comparing two things but suggesting one is better than the other?
John compares b against his preferred choice of a. John goes through the motions of comparing b to his favored a. John quickly discards b after a cursory comparison to a.

comment Positive Synonym for Indecisive
+1 I immediately thought of thorough and diligent and had always thought of scrupulous as having to do with scruples which I always connect with ethics but the dictionary seems to indicate this is exactly the word OP is looking for.

comment agent vs. force
An agent is an actor- something/someone who acts or does something. For example an agent can apply a force, but a force is not itself an agent. I think your could replace "alone" with "by itself"

comment Describe a project that delivers content on multiple vehicles with a word or short phrase
Yes, but those smaller projects are then usually brought back together to create the final result. Going with my franchise suggestion, The Star Wars franchise comprises 8 films, 8 television series, too-many-to-count videos games on multiple platforms, radio programs, musical albums, childrens toys and figurines, theme-park rides and much more.
