The Eras of MobileRead

We now have our own eras at MobileRead thanks to Nick's observations:

BZ and AZ -- Before Zelda and After Zelda

But is AZ the proper term? It seems to imply that Zelda has left us and that is clearly not the case. Perhaps WZ -- With Zelda would be a better representation.

Your views?

I like Blue Period, for its irony.

Well, because Picasso's Blue Period (see link in previous post) marked a bit of a depressing, sombre period of his work, so I like the irony that we'd call Zelda's reign MR's Blue Period seeing as it's somewhat the opposite.

Cheers,
Marc

How about CZP for 'Current Zelda Period' although there would likely be great confusion when discussing the origins of ZCPs during the time known as CZP although the confusion could of course be due to the overindulgence of ZCPs.

That's why XX makes more sense. It's a bit like a blank template, you can add whatever you want there!

heeheehee... more confusion... sounds like just the ticket !

but i have to protest this poll ! you can't hold me responsible for all the silliness that goes on around here, i'm not sure i'm even the most silly !! what about all you other lunatics running around ?? just look at the MUS, we've got 45 confirmed members ! and that's not counting all the ones still in denial. hmph ! trying to foist all the blame on me hey, sneaky buggers !

maybe i should vote for AOS, Age of Silliness... that sounds about right ! although it's a tough decision between AOS and "call it anything you like, as long as it's not late for dinner"... and the Blue Period (next to the fish)...

(no multiple choice ?? what kind of poll is this, anyway ???)

I think AZ (Anno Zeldini in Latin??) would perhaps best describe all days after Dec. 6 2007.

There could then be periods and ages within that Era such as the Age of Silliness and the Blue Period. There could even be overlap. I have not been around long enough to know, but certainly there must have been significant threads that define a period such as the Age of Bacon, the Guilty by Association Years, and the Great psockpuppet plague.

you know, you may be on to something... there are definitely various distinct periods around here... (although the Age of Bacon, according to some dogs at least, is ongoing and eternal... )
