I agree with Hal. RPers are always clamoring for things like this but these sort of events don't scale well. Blizz tries hard to scatter players as much as possible to avoid lag, so if they say something like "if you're in the trade quarter of dalaran on Saturday between 8AM & 12PM server time you get +1 to any skill-ups" then EVERYONE will be there, making it chaotic and pointless.

"Blizz tries hard to scatter players as much as possible to avoid lag..."Except during Brewfest, All Hallows, Winter Veil...Sorry, I couldn't resist jabbing you in the ribs there. I know where you're coming from. During Brewfest, for example, all I wanted to do was get into Org to finish out a quest. My FPS stinks anyway, and that just made it absolutely crawl. The ram races, people duelling at the gate, and then along comes All Hallows. Again, I'm trying to complete a quest, but can't because there are 60-odd people around putting out the fires from the Headless Horseman. During Winterveil, I wasn't trying to complete a quest, just get my presents. Inconsiderate jerks with huge effing mounts standing around the base of the tree so you couldn't even see your present, and the usual dozen or so duelers plus another two dozen doing the Crashin' & Thrashin'...What? My allotted minute is up for a rant about lag during events? Damn...and I haven't even gotten to the goo--------
