Spamming the forum with gif(t)s is definitely ok.

Yeah, that exchange was reported. The "ysscky" thing being a no-no is a site-wide rule (albeit one that I think is kind of lame) so Riverman deserves no sympathy, although he will obviously ***** about it because that's what he does.

RAIDS gets time off for sucking at an incredibly high volume. It appears all he does all day, every day is spam this forum with nonsense.

Both of them could use some time outside. Hopefully they will take advantage of this opportunity.
+ dean self banned

Ray baited Riverman by saying something about anger issues and Riverman gave him the "ysscky", which, apparently, is ban-on-sight now.

No idea what Dean got banned for - probably for being militantly illiterate.

Pronunciation Guide Time!

Heard a girl at the bar order a Sierra Nevada and say Nevahhda. Not with a boston/ny accent but close.

I believe the correct way is to pronounce Nevada like vat.

How do you pronounce Nevada?

Nevadans normally pronounce the second syllable of their state name using the /æ/ vowel of "bad". Many from outside the Western United States pronounce it with the /ɑː/ vowel of "father" /nəˈvɑːdə/. Although the latter pronunciation is closer to the Spanish pronunciation, it is not the pronunciation preferred by locals.
I can't bother with the cluster**** that is IPA, but sounds like Ne-vah-da is actually the correct pronunciation since it is closer to the Spanish one.

Also remember seeing ads with the accent Nevǎda, but I have no idea how that is pronounced. Ads are probably conflicting the above.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Reading is FUNdamental

Spanish v is a soft b

Also though, it is generally accepted that place names do not need their current "official" pronunciation to match the language that generated it in the past

But I will still say nevahda because that's the only one that doesn't feel awkward. Although others don't necessarily SOUND awkward

Right, that's the "official" pronunciation even though it is no longer the most common.

But I'm pretty sure it used to be the majority American white person pronunciation. That's how Keruac always said it.
