  1. Multitasking, as presented, is the deliberate action of splitting one's focus on more than one task. Driving, reading, singing, walking, eating, writing, and many other actions require an individual's focus and attention to perform. They are conscious actions that require effort from a person. Sleeping, breathing, digesting, or any other function of the body that does not require any sort of focus cannot be included in this definition of multitasking because it does not require effort or action on the part of the person. Splitting focus and attention among different tasks, as pointed out
  2. [quote name='Atrumist' timestamp='1327161986' post='101635'] Example - you never think about breathing... You cells are independent from your "thinking", by physiological means humans are multi-tasking. During sleep little than only one quarter of the human task processess go idle [/quote] I object to your use of autonomic body functions as evidence that a human can multitask. While a person can have some degree of control over the rate and depth of breathing, it is, in essence, an automatic function of the human body, the same as blood circulation and digestion. These processes occu

[quote name='duxie' timestamp='1327136803' post='101579'] [size=3][font=verdana,geneva,sans-serif]there's no such thing as multitasking in human brain.[/font][/size] [/quote] Research indicates that you are correct in this statement, and that as people try to attempt more tasks simultaneously, the incidence of errors increases. However, I believe that multitasking is not about focusing equally on all tasks at the same time, but about devoting only as much time and attention to each specific task as is needed. Your example of talking on a phone while driving is a poor example of such mul
  4. Research indicates that the vast majority of personality is set within the first year of life and is [i]incredibly[/i] difficult to alter or change without experiencing extreme trauma. Essentially, as a person ages, they are more or less going to behave as an adult as they did as a child. Using your anologies, it is more likely that a person with a "rigid" personality is going to seek out a career that has lower "multitasking needs" than someone you know that has a more "flexible" personality. A person will seek out the place in which they best fit. There is a lot of research available a
  5. [quote name='xrieg' timestamp='1306844128' post='85456'] Pointless to discuss [/quote] Yet you continue to do so. Amazing. The Boss Heads Competition allows those who have [i]already won[/i] a heads competition to compete again, but for a different and more valuable prize. This whole thread is pointless.
  6. Irrelevant. As those who are listed have already won a previous competition, they are rendered ineligible to win again.
  7. [quote name='Curiose' date='06 August 2010 - 12:27 PM' timestamp='1281112042' post='65265'] I have to say that this is stepping on the Legend Seeker's toes a little bit. [/quote] The Legend Speakers' role is not to design the pages of various players. The guild was set up to, as the name says, find, record, and disseminate the legends of the various characters in the game. If there are individual Legend Speakers who also happen to know a bit of coding and who are willing to offer these services to others, it has nothing to do with the role of the guild itself.
  8. Hiding behind a forum alt to make bold statements is easy. Grow a pair.

[quote name='Muratus del Mur' date='19 July 2010 - 06:46 PM' timestamp='1279579565' post='64193'] - you can use them for personal use, meaning the product of your work wont be shared, given, sold, traded to others. [/quote][quote name='Blackwoodforest' date='20 July 2010 - 01:49 AM' timestamp='1279604958' post='64200'] Thanks for your statement Mur, some minor things should be now even to your picky friends clear and understandable written. Topic can be closed, I will be still offering wallpapers to anyone, non-offical and only on demand. [/quote] Yes, I hope things have been made clea
  10. [quote name='Kafuuka' date='19 July 2010 - 02:34 PM' timestamp='1279564465' post='64179'] How do you conclude that it is for quest purposes only? I'm not an expert on English grammar, but a comma can be used to list multiple possibilities which need not be inclusive as well. "can be used for quest purposes or mixed together or altered etc." versus "can be used for quest purposes, eg by being mixed together or being altered etc". In a further quote, Mur states personal use as another acceptable use, does he have to list all things allowed one by one? It's funny how you go after single words,
  11. [quote name='Muratus del Mur' date='07 June 2010 - 11:30 AM' timestamp='1275924612' post='61254'] Images FROM MD, [b]can be used for quest purposes[/b], mixed together, altered, etc, as long as they are not creating confusion. No image should be used that could be considered a spoiler, like premium creatures, remote locations, achievements colored art, etc. Your common sense should tell you what things are obviously not right to do, like pretending you are the author of one or the other md artwork, when in fact you are not. I don't expect anyone will do that, but still i said it. [i]Emphas
  12. [quote name='Pipstickz' date='17 July 2010 - 05:14 AM' timestamp='1279358052' post='64059'] this is artwork from the game, and the only money being made is the money in the game. The court it would be handled in, if it were to go to court, would most likely be in the game. Blackwood does not claim to own the material that he uses, nor does he claim that they are official in any way. [/quote] Your ignorance of copyright law is apparent. The point is not whether he is getting "real" money for his productions, but that he is altering and distributing artwork that is not his. He has no rights
  13. Indyra's point is valid and should not be summarily dismissed. This topic is not about a quest that has been started, but rather is about someone who wants to profit from altering another's work. Blackwood Forest, while your enthusiasm for this game is extreme, your approach to certain aspects of it border on criminal. You constantly seek to modify the work of another artist. Muratus del Mur has stated that original artwork, no matter the quality of it, will always be superior to the altered images of someone else.

  14. [quote name='Chewett' date='07 June 2010 - 02:21 PM' timestamp='1275934895' post='61280'] Each and every king were elected. [/quote] Untrue. There were only three elections. Yrthilian was placed on the throne as the king; he was appointed to the position, not elected. There was a vote taken to see if he should remain as the king, yes, but that was a wholly different event than the real elections that occurred for the other three lands. It is important that it be known that Yrthilian was never elected by either the citizenry of Golemus Golemicarum nor of any other land. Regarding th
  15. [quote name='Blackwoodforest' date='29 May 2010 - 01:06 AM' timestamp='1275109579' post='60569'] from my personal point of view I dont see a big issue here since I use MD graphic for a non-commercial and even md-internal use, it is something so push gameplay and roleplay. Of course, in general you might be right watcher for sure. I will check this as well and we will see. [/quote] I do not know what copyright laws cover in Romania nor Germany, and my knowledge of English copyright law is extremely limited, so this may not be an issue that needs addressing, but the point is that you reproduc
