actually i wasnt uber, i was less than uber. the fact that the guild did so well is testament to drabyl's leadership abilities. i was off shooting hot nekked women most of the raids.

i am still however proud of his accomplishment, so excuse me for thinking about it.

If you were talking about a staff made of wood, then isn't would be the correct word to use. When you are talking about staff, which is plural, aren't is the correct word to use.


The staff isn't perfect.

"The staff" as it were, is a collective singular. It refers to every staff member as part of a single group without differentiating between them. The staff is one group, thus singular, although it is a collective group of individuals. Therefore, The staff isn't perfect.

If you had a degree in English, then I'm sure you would spell English with a capital E.

Aside from that, by your logic, I could say 'The Americans is the furthest ahead in the space race"

I don't think so.

Unlike Americans, English is my first language, so pardon me if I happen to know how to use it correctly.

That's the cool thing about the internet: You can claim anything you want, such as having an English degree, and there's very little way of disproving it.

No, because "Americans" is a plural noun and "staff" is singular. You could very well say "The population of America is the furthest ahead in the space race." That would be correct.

I will pardon you when you display some of this knowledge which you claim to possess.

If you had an english degree, you would spell it in a lowercase too, because it ain't worth a capital letter or the paper it's printed on. And yes I said ain't, which isn't a word. Nobody cares. Well except you of course, so let's try this again.

The Americans is the furthest ahead in the space race.

The letter S here makes it a plural. A plural is more than one, where as a singular, is one. So since "The Americans" is a plural, because of the letter s, it gets the plural of the verb, the verb being the action word which in this case is "is". The plural of is, is are. So you would say The Americans are the furthest ahead in the space race.

Now if you wanted to use the collective singular to refer to Americans, like oh, say, America, you would use the singular of the verb, which is "is." So you would say:

America is the furthest ahead in the space race.

Do you understand the difference now? Can you identify the nouns and verbs in the sentence?

For homework tonight, I want you to write me 10 sentences, and identify the nouns and verbs in them. Also list their tenses. Tomorrow, we will start learning about numbers.

Heh English isnt my native language so this discussion acutally made me curious.

Here is what Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English has to say:

staff - noun (countable + sing|pl verb) The group of workers who carry on a job or do the work of an organization esp. of a teaching or bussines organization: The school's staff is/are excellent. ; I have a staff of 15...
2. BrE members of such a group: She's in charge of about 20 staff

This leads me to Shar's conclusion ;)

Just a thought I had. Why not finish up Neverwinter City as a replacement for Hulburg? Take the best parts or modify Hulburg or whatever. Granted, Neverwinter is on the entire other side of the continent, but it could be a good replacement if done well enough. The location for Neverwinter has been around long enough, yet never been made. Its about time it get put in.

Because more than likely the kid working at mcdonald's also has a bachelor degree in english, or some other such liberal arts bullshit degree which is worthless in the real world(they don't tell you that while you're paying tuition). Given the highly postmodern nature of such classes, said burger jockey has been taught to believe that there is no spoon, and as such, there is no onions, its all in your mind's perception. Therefore, the onions may be a part of your reality when eating the big mac, but it wasn't a part of their reality when building the big mac.

Either that, or its because they throw all the burgers into a big bin and then pull them out for each order, so the guy behind you got no onions on his big mac.

More like, the kid behind the counter paid $25,000 for his History of Art History degree, and is now putting onions on burgers for $5.15 an hour in order to keep his electricity on. Nobody in the universe cares less about the quality of their job than someone working a low-paying service job. Take it from me.

Questions about removal of zones

Postby Lalisa » Thu Aug 28, 2003 6:45 pm

I have a question about the removal of certain zones.

Will other zones/areas made by Shaundakul be removed also?
What about The Minotaur outpost and The North Moonsea Trail?

I have a little bit of trouble understanding why you don't remove all the zones he has made instead of just parts of his work. But of course, this is ultimately up to you, the staff.
