    Default Cite with screen shots of available BG armor?

    Been looking for a page/thread that has screen shots of the available BG armor with stats. Anyone have a cite/web address handy? Thanks

    The word you are looking for is Site. Cite is to show where you got information, like citing a reference.

    Site is the noun, like a website. Cite is the address for the Site, and comes from the noun citation. So when you refer to a location of an article, source, authority, you cite it. And if that article is on the web, its a cite to a site.

    hahaha. sometimes I forget that lots of teenagers are on this site.

    So Crabbok almost always has a good point. Maybe it's less confusing to say "Cite FOR screenshots of available BG armor."

    And nvm, now. A helpful person PM'd the cite to me.

    cite me the site that describes the difference between the noun site and the cite. I would prefer if the site had parenthetical citations to which I can clearly see the site's cites.

    cite1   [sahyt] Show IPA
    –verb (used with object),cit·ed, cit·ing.
    1.
    to quote (a passage, book, author, etc.), esp. as an authority: He cited the Constitution in his defense.
    2.
    to mention in support, proof, or confirmation; refer to as an example: He cited many instances of abuse of power.
    3.
    to summon officially or authoritatively to appear in court.
    4.

    Cite is a verb. Yes dictionary does also list an alternate definition with noun, and the definition is simply Citation. However, it is clear you were asking for a WEB SITE, and not a WEB CITATION, as this is eq2flames, not University of Norrath Online.

    Yes, you are correct in a way. You were asking for someone to cite you a website. However, it was in the way you used it. When you say "cite/web address" it kind of means they are the same thing. By that I mean "item/similar item".

    What you meant to say was "Could anyone cite me the web address?" That would have been the correct usage of the word. And Crabbok would have given you a pretty little hyperlink, or in this case a hypercite.

    Also, it may be correct but it is not accepted forum lingo. Just like LoL means laugh out loud on the internet, you wouldn't walk around IRL saying "Oh Jim, that joke you told at lunch had me L O L'ing all afternoon." And if you are someone who would say that, you are probably a mentally retarded WoW h@xx0r.
