this mentions it is the first Year Zero website to link to a modern-day website but isn't this true for trinity episcopalian and omega industries? Ylbissop 21:27, 16 April 2007 (PDT)

more then one version of the block of lines in booklets?

i immed. went to the block in my cd booklet, and its entirely different, its only half the size and no matter what which way i flip or spin it, it doesnt match any of the one for this site. should we possibly scan up and share our various lineblocks to see if theres more to it? (mine is on the page for meet your master, booklet ID: B0008764-02) --killjoy 17:40, 17 April 2007 (PDT)

this may be a good idea seeing as the rest of viability index is in this picture i'm pretty sure http://www.flickr.com/photos/astralpunch/458446939/in/pool-360026@N21/ where is the apropriate ets thread for these lineblocks? ylbissop 02:18, 8 May 2007 (PDT)

Maybe New Orleans didn't sink...?

Something I noticed...

This article states "New Orleans also has a viability index of 0, presumably because it (along with most of southern Louisiana) disappeared under the ocean years before Year Zero." Where is this stated in Year Zero canon? I think this may be be a false presumption.

In the "wretched" wreckage (http://themailstrom.com/wretched_Ypq2QQ.htm), the following quote can be found: "“Urmia is like Detroit or New Orleans or St. Louis. Abandoned. Only with more guns and less nice stuff.” If a location was under the ocean (like Miami is stated to be) would a person call this abandoned? The Viability Index even gives Miami a score even though it is confirmed as being under water!

Something else that is interesting, three cities are mentioned in the "wretched" wreckage: Detroit, New Orleans, and St. Louis. On the Viability Index, Detroit is not listed at all, New Orleans is listed with no information and a 0 score, and St. Louis is listed with information and a score of 3.7.

Regardless, just wanted to throw this out there. Not a big deal, but it did throw me off. 'Course, I'm new here, so maybe that explains it. Thanks!

I was just going off of the link that shows the rising sea levels. It's said a couple of times that the sea level rise in YZ was actually worse than predicted by (real world) climate scientists. Then again, especially with regards to the Miami point you made, I don't think continuity was a big priority for the creative team here. JFerminger 20:17, 15 August 2010 (PDT)
