Forum Post of the Day: Ode to the CMs

I have to say that I really enjoyed this little ditty Tatiana wrote up over on the forums. She's seen all the trouble the CMs are contending with lately, feels a little sad for our Community Managers, and decided to write a song for them. I don't want to turn this into yet another discussion about Shaman buffs (we've got other posts for that), but no matter how you feel about the CMs, you just have to be won over by lines like "You tease us with "When it's ready" and even with "Soon." / And you get flaming pumpkins as your forum toon."

Hopefully some musician more qualified than I (I've got my trusty Uke right here, but unfortunately my mic isn't quite good enough to give this thing justice on a recording) will toss in a catchy chorus and set this to music. I imagine something a little Arlo Guthrie-- how else could you pull off the song's best joke: "In excitement I click on the Blue post, / To see if it's "Soon," or "!!!" or " If you have any complaints or feedback regarding a Community Manager, please email wowcmfeedback@blizzard.com. Thanks!" Funny. And if someone does put it together, drop us an email about it-- we'll be sure to play it on the podcast.

The whole thing is reprinted for posterity after the break.


Oh CM, Oh CM, your life is so hard,
And now to you, comes this tailed, blue-skinned bard.

She watches the words come to life on the screen,
And gives a /facepalm at the things she has seen.

The great shaman revolt of 2007?
The hundreds of dots that got sent to heaven!

Give players stock answers, they cry for some fun,
Give players some fun, but "real" reply, you gave none!

You tease us with "When it's ready" and even with "Soon."
And you get flaming pumpkins as your forum toon.

But even though whiners, they come and they go,
I really must say, CMs, I love you so.

In excitement I click on the "Blue" post,
To see if it's "Soon," or "!!!" or " If you have any complaints or feedback regarding a Community Manager, please email wowcmfeedback@blizzard.com. Thanks!"

So to you CMs, I raise up a toast,
For I sure don't envy you, our definitive host.

No thanks do you get for a job that's well done,
And for giving us a game that is such great fun.

So CMs I hope this ode made you grin
And please remember you really are "teh win!"
