How long can we argue the PQ/SQ of BDs before it becomes useless and simply ridiculous excercise?
Perhaps the 2 forums should be redesigned
Well, "redesigned" implies that they were designed in the first place. Were these subject areas ever designed by AVS somehow? Where is this design, or these definitions, presented? -- link please! I keep seeing people popping up here saying that the content of a software program which can be said to be the visual aspect (or the auditory aspect) is acceptable content to discuss here, whereas whatever content which imparts the story or other things is not the good content for talking about herein. Chances are, the better part of our sense of story comes from the way the digital bits interact with our equipment to form the sound, thereby the words, as well as creating the picture which tells the story every bit as much -- so how is the way our brains resolve the image to form a visual field specifically different than the way our brains connect a story to what that software is doing?
I think it might be one thing to limit folks to a technical discussion about how ones and zeros manipulate circuits with electricity -- this would be a "lines of code directing hardware and/or flow of electrons" kind of focus, but once you talk about any picture or sound that results, you are into a software "content" arena -- what the software is presenting in terms of content. I just don't get the distinction. When virtually anyone discusses game software -- from the highest holy engineer down to the ten year old gamer, they are talking the game -- without that in play, the conversation is limited to..what? -- fifty people in the world who can talk complex code?
But if you say these distinctions were by design friend Oink, I would just like to be linked to the area where AVS has laid out those definitions -- I've never been able to find it. I am always highly fascinated by the formation of semantic distinctions and how they are worded, so that I might begin to make sense of this...
Thanks in advance for the link!
