Checkmarks and "Ready"
All the time, people claim to see who has marked themselves "Ready" in a game. The only thing that I can see is the checkmark next to powers, which, unless I'm mistaken, means that you have saved moves and won't NMR, but not that you're "Ready" and will process as soon as others all "Ready."

Is there something they see that I don't? Or is this just a broad misconception of what that indicates?

To clarify: Michael Jackson was a singer. To say "Michael Jackson are great" would be wrong. Weezer are a band, a collection of 4 musicians, a group.
steephie22 (182 D (S))
01 Jun 16 UTC
Exactly, they are *a* band, not multiple bands. Which is why it's is, not are. Unless you're referring to the 4 musicians rather than the band.

Which of the following would you say is correct?

1: "The Beatles is awesome"
2: "The Beatles are awesome"
TrPrado (461 D Mod)

But the Beatles are also each idividually a Beatle. Rivers Cuomo is not individually a Weezer.

The band is Weezer, not "The Weezers."

@ghug
"Wyf is a problem insofar as that it came to mean "wife", which has all manner of nasty connotations. The sexing (gender is a bad word to use with its typical meaning when talking linguistics) of "man" probably represents a trend of male dominance in linguistic development, but hasn't had any apparent impact on the development of "woman" itself unless we count the subject actually being discussed here as legitimate linguistic change, which I'm wary to do in part simply because it isn't and in part because I agree with the points you make in your final paragraph. "

This is an honest question here. Is calling your wife, "wifey" degrading? you said something about wyf. I was wondering if using terms like "wifey" and "hubby" were actually insulting based on the way this conversation has evolved.
ghug (5031 D (B))

@brain, the problem with "wife" with respect to "woman" is that they're etymologically inseparable, which devalues womanhood into simply wifehood. It's not a huge deal, and it certainly doesn't make the word wife bad to use in and of itself.

@bo/Jamie, band is a collective noun. It is a thing that represents a group of things. The British insist on treating these as plurals, which is unbelievably stupid (a theme with the British), but nonetheless correct in their ass-backwards version of our beautiful language.

You said it, ghug. A band is a thing. The Beatles is a band when you are referring to the band, but when you are referring to the people that make up the Beatles, the Beatles are ridiculously overrated.

Weezer, on the other hand, is always singular, because Weezer is singular. Make sense? Circular logic is circular.
