How do you say "Machinae"?
« on: September 03, 2005, 12:16:43 am »
I just say it like "machine", tho I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be pronounced like "mak-in-ah", or something like that.. How do you say it? :P

Wow- so how do you become a advocate ?
I mean, other than liking their music, and spreading the word, and joining the forum :P

That is becoming an advocate. Full credit to eloj for maintaining the FAQ though.

I admit that whenever people ask me about it, I prefer to pronounce it "machine-ah".

But I'm strange, so what do I know? ^_^;;

H, I'd consider adding that variation, but I'm lazy.

Edit: All the forum links are out of order too, are they not? Okay, who's gonna fix this? <looks around room>

Oh, crap.

there should really be a link to the FAQ on the main site... somewhere that stands out so that people will read that before coming and asking these questions again and again on the forums.

and it's pronounced MACHINE... Robert says so, heed his words.

HEED

Maybe a sticky thread in the music forum with a link to the FAQ?

From aforementioned thread:

If possible, consider adding "sticky" post with FAQs in it.
And/or a link to the currently accumulating unoffical FAQ.

Possible questions to include:
 Ã‚ What do the applaud and smite buttons do?
 Ã‚ How do you prononuce "Machinae"?

The pronounciation question might also be a candidate for the official site...


I made the suggestion above a long time ago, but it's still a good one. This forum could really use some good sticky posts.

Items that might be useful in a sticky post:
- Answers to frequently asked questions.
- A link to Eloj's FAQ.
- A link to the Wikipedia page.
- Some tips and hints for the forum search.

Well.. it keeps coming up, so yes. Which is why the sticky idea is a good one.
