I see what you mean, and you seem to be correct. I apologize for that.

That still doesn't change the fact that he ignored everything else ;P

Not enough replies and/or verbal violence yet for that.

I know, I know. I just don't get the hype: Oh my god ! You killed the site !!. We're getting older, we have others priorities, we can't spend as much time on the site as we did before. No ones really guilty for that, it had to happen.

If we're going to argue over semantics, so be it. This site did stop functioning. In its current state, this site is an archive. In that sense, this site is doing fantastic. What an archive it is -- people still download things here all the time.

But looking at the original goal of the site, that is, to be an emulation news site, THIS SITE HAS FAILED. There is no more news. There are no more updates. The opposite of "failed" is "successful," and while this site was once a successful news site, I hardly see how anyone can consider a static archive a "successful" news site.


Now I'm going to stop arguing about this and worry some more about the damn layout. Bitching about my being pithy and the lack of my political correctness to respect those that want to think that ZD is still as great now as it once was doesn't make site layouts.

I'll drink to that.

<u>http://www.zophar.net/wwwthreads/sho...&sb=5&o=0&vc=1You're the one</a></u> who started arguing semantics right out of the gate. Or did you forget that already? [img]/wwwthreads/images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Kind of strange for someone to actually link to dictionary sites then turn around and tell everyone else not to argue semantics.


You also argued poorly, since <u><a href"http://www.m-w.com/dictionary/failure">the very site you linked to regarding 'failure'</a></u> has a definition which confirms that Swampgas did, indeed, use the word properly and didn't misunderstand anything in your initial post.

You said:
<blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr>

the reason ZD failed

<hr></blockquote>

By definition #4 of 'failure'... if you say something has failed, then you can also say it's a failure:

<blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr>


Main Entry: fail·ure
Pronunciation: 'fAl-y&r
Function: noun
-snip-
4 : one that has failed


<hr></blockquote>


Therefore:
To say "one has failed" is synonymous with "one is a failure"


I already brought this up on a less wordy post <u>http://www.zophar.net/wwwthreads/sho...apsed&sb=5&o=0here</a></u>, but it seems to have gone unnoticed (or you just chose to ignore it?)

Trust me, I've seen them. I've been trying to look for inspiration in a variety of places. Off-hand, I know I've looked at http://www.digg.com/digg</a>, http://slashdot.org/Slashdot</a>, http://www.chronocompendium.com/Chrono Compendium</a>, http://www.dcemu.co.uk/DCEmu</a>, http://www.ngemu.com/NG Emulation</a>, http://www.romhacking.net/Romhacking.net</a>, http://www.starmen.net/Starmen.net</a>, http://www.genvid.com/moonstruck/Moonstruck</a>, http://bluedragon.tv/Blue Dragon.tv</a>, http://www.ocremix.org/OC Remix</a>, http://www.rpgfan.com/RPGFan</a>, http://www.rpgdreamer.com/RPG Dreamers</a>, http://www.rpgamer.com/RPGamer</a>, http://www.vgmuseum.com/Video Game Museum</a>, http://www.mmhp.net/Mega Man Home Page</a>, http://www.planet-megaman.com/Planet Mega Man</a>, http://www.flyingomelette.com/Flying Omelette</a>, http://www.ffcompendium.com/Final Fantasy Compendium</a>, http://www.lunar-net.com/LunarNET</a>, http://www.goemon.info/Mystical Website of Goemon</a>, ....And that's all I can think of, for inspiration. I'm not trying to find ZD's layout in another site, of course, but I need something to get started -- something that's just like, "Hey, I like this idea." And then I can go from there.

*whew*, quite an exhaustive list (to remember, that is). But going back through them all a second time is refreshing.

It has been said a while ago that the staff doesn't have as much time as they did before so they can't update the site.

ZD is all about the message board

Quit bitching and do some work if you're not happy.

It's just a fucking web page, it's not like your life depends on it.

Thank you

What we have here is a problem with the misinterpretation of textual context. But I will argue no more.
