Talk:White Tiger

Accessed?[edit source]

"The easiest place to charm a White Tiger is in the northern part of Arborstone, accessed from the Tanglewood Copse or Arborstone outposts." I find the use of accessed as a verb applied to human actions awkward, as some dictionaries only acknowledge the word noun-status. The verb status is well accepted in technical circles to apply to data.

Perhaps this means that I am slow-to-adapt. However, I wonder whether we couldn't find a way to rephrase that avoids the debate:

  • "The easiest place to charm a White Tiger is in the northern part of Arborstone, which can be reached from the Tanglewood Copse or Arborstone outposts."
  • "The easiest place to charm a White Tiger is in the northern part of Arborstone; you can get there from either the Tanglewood Copse or Arborstone outposts."

If no one else has a strong opinion about it, I'll consider the current text as accepted (and reconsider my general opposition to this type of usage).   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 17:31, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

"Which can be reached", is a good alternative, go ahead and change RandomTime 17:36, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
M-W does list the verb form, did you not see this? And we already use "accessed" in exactly this sense for multiple hard-to-access areas, including the area in question. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 17:49, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, nothing obscure about the verb form, even for human actions. I've heard it used this way many times. Now, look at the definition for "access" as a strong emotional outburst and tell me if you knew about that one. I didn't. o_O Nwash User-Nwash-Eyes.png 18:40, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
