    Great advice, so we should all ignore you. i got it, can we get a lock?

     

    Whats the saying, that if you can't tell who the most drunk person in the room is its yourself. i guess that same idea works on intellegence.

    Because i can.

    Just incase anyone forgot (which almost EVERYONE apperantly has), massively is not a real word. Go grab a dictionary, merriam webster preferably, it's not there. MMORPG has always been massive multiplayer online roleplaying game. Massively somehow became part of everyone's vocabulary oddly. And even if massively was a word, it would still be incorrect. The fake word "massively" would be an adverb, and there is no verb in MMORPG.

     

    Taken from merriam-webster: Massive (adjective) - forming or consisting of a large mass

     

    You can't just take an adjective, add -ly to the end, and create a new word. How can a verb be massive anyways? "The fat man's fat vibrated massively (read: vibrated consiting of a large mass) as he jumped up and down." Bad example, but you try finding a good one. There are none!

     

     

    inb4 dicionary.com has an entry for it -- yeah taht's bs. Dicionary.com isn't credible at all and is highly unprofessional. Go look in any real, credible dicionary. 

    and inb4 'your name is spelled wrong" no its not, there is no one proper way to spell a name, they can be spelled many ways, I spell mine like it is for a reason

    I've been laughing at everyone all along who's been unaware of this.

    Yes we knew that already and the frist MMOs where Massive Multiplayer not Massively.

    OK, lets try this again, from the Oxford English Dictionary, which is completely English and not American.

    then you posted a link, claiming something wasnt there that was, keep making yourself look like a fool though.

    I have never understood why people carry on clutching at straws when they are absolutely banged to rights. Sad, even a little pathetic but it's hard not to be amused as they squirm. Thanks for the laugh OP. What's next week installment? Online games don't exist?

    Well the way the language works when words get made up and get used for a period of time they get added. Unfortunately the result is we get a lot of words that sound like they were made up by a 6 year old.

    props for being straight up even when I'm being an ass

     

    and to everyone else, keep trying I'll never stop going on

    youll never wtop pwning yourself? thats good to know, since your lame america excuse has already been destroyed, guess youve got no excuses left now.

    Neither was "woot" 5 years ago. Give it time.

    As for being an adverb, "massively" would be an adjetive. In the same respect as "slovenly"

    Ending in "ly" doesn't automatically make every word an adverb.

    Directed at the OP, "Professer."

    There is another word used in this thread that isn't a real word.  Your name..."Professer."

    It's spelled PROFESSOR.
