But just in case it isn't...



Doesn't mean there aren't other words that can be used.

True, but i dislike the one that is used. So i rant about it. Why do people not understand the point of the rant section?


http://forum.tip.it/...ing-guidelines/

The Rants forum is a place for you vent your RuneScape frustrations, but that does not mean that you can post incoherent one-sentence rants. Similar to how General Discussion topics need to supply a platform for discussion and RuneScape Bugs & Suggestions topics need well thought out ideas, your rants also need to be worthy of discussion. Rather than saying, "I don't like this, it sucks," you need to present a valid argument for your rant and back it up. When creating your topic, imagine how people would respond. Would they have something to say at all? If you can think of valid responses and discussions, the chances are that you have a valid topic/argument. As an example, if you want to rant about an aspect of the RuneScape game, first describe that aspect. Then explain what you think about it, why it negatively affects the game and/or community, and maybe even provide a solution to the problem or describe what Jagex should do to fix it.

To "sip" something literally means to take a little drink of a liquid...

I don't see how this warrants a rant.

It annoys me, so i rant about it.


Yup.

And I think personal preference of syntax hardly constitutes a valid reason.


According to Runescape you drink it 4 times, so when playing Runescape and clicking it, it is drinking. Not sipping.


Valid argument provided.


But wats a synonym.


Not personal preference, to say you 'sip' a potion is incorrect. There is no 'sip' option. Synonym or not, it is technically incorrect to use the word 'sip' in the context of using the 'drink' option in Runescape.

Yes, i do personally prefer 'drink' to 'sip', but that is not the valid argument i provided for this rant.

Then you'd better go out and edit away every instance you said to "kill" a monster or player. You can't "kill" a monster, you can only "attack" it.

You can perform a drinking action on the potion, which will result in a sip, similar to how you can attack a monster, leading to a kill.

It is never referred to as a sip by Jagex, but attacking a monster or player until it reaches 0lp is frequently referred to as 'killing' it.

Drinking is to take a liquid into the mouth and swallow, which is what the drink action makes your character emulate. Not sipping, drinking.

Drinking a portion of a liquid is frequently referred to as sipping it, similar to attacking a monster until it reaches 0 is referred to as killing it. Drinking/sipping can look identical, but because we can't see the vial, we cannot determine this.

+1.


I Mean if this is really a ground breaking concern, modify the applet to say sip.

verb /sip/ 
sipped, past participle; sipped, past tense; sipping, present participle; sips, 3rd person singular present

Drink (something) by taking small mouthfuls
- I sat sipping coffee
- she sipped at her tea

verb /driNGk/ 
drank, past tense; drinking, present participle; drinks, 3rd person singular present; drunk, past participle

Take (a liquid) into the mouth and swallow
- we sat by the fire, drinking our coffee
- he drank thirstily

If we look at the size of a vial, herb, secondary, etc. we can determine that, relative to the size of the avatar, a vial or potion is fairly small. Thus, it can be sipped OR drunk. Either term is correct.

Sip is still incorrect as i have previously explained. Repeatedly defining sip doesn't change that.

When people say "pot" I say "I don't smoke".



The word "sip" just makes me rage. Everyone has words that piss them off, i was just unfortunate enough to get landed with one that people tend to say >_>

Know what makes me rage? Arrogant, belligerent PKers who think they actually matter in the grand scheme of things.


Also, this. +9001 times this.

The grand scheme of TIF? Someone, please, fill me in.

I was more referring to how so many PKers (this may or may not include you, I really don't know) constantly whine at Jagex for updates, even though Jagex spent the better part of a year trying to accommodate them. PKers make up a pretty small portion of active members, so to see so many updates go to a minority of players who are mostly ungrateful is frustrating, to say the least.


So you're whining about how Jagex listens to other players that whine to them and not you?

He has a valid point, there haven't really been many non PvP or quest updates in the past few months.

Just because Jagex doesn't mention it doesn't mean it's wrong. There is no option to buy anything from another player, but you don't say "trading 5.5m for a saradomin sword" do you? "using" isn't useful on a skills necklace, but you use them, right? You kill monsters with no "kill" option. There is nothing saying "barrage player x" but you barrage them anyway. I know it's kind of a joke argument, but it's invalid nonetheless.
