Janaa: WHU comments are not moderated by default - you post, it goes live. For whatever reason your post pinged the spam filter and it held it for moderation (I think it was the word "cash" that got your held for moderation), something I didn't see until I checked my email (about 2 hours after your post), and I approved it at once.I can understand, however, how you'd see other comments coming up and think that everything was held for moderation and approved one at a time.As Hrist says, I don't censor comments, and if you'll notice several people who posted before you said similar things as what you said and all were allowed their voice :)As a brief response to your points: as Hrist says, upkeep cost already exists in various forms in WoW. A guild hall would need to be functional as well as social -- why make something that appeals only to one subset of players? The cost I tossed out off the cuff isn't as expensive as you think: a guild of 20 could easily farm that up in a few days. The reason they don't have that money in the bank now is because they have no need or use for it. Thus the community building aspect :) And keep in mind that everyone can raid with the easy raids these days, and your raid drops can pay your (much smaller) upkeep costs.Finally, as I explained in the article, the whole concept is to balance the cost such that no one can have everything. Your hall will never be all of Dalaran in one spot, and there'll still be plenty of reason to go to the other cities of the world. It's all about balance. Balance between casual and raiding guilds. Large and small. Balance between social and functional. Balance between useful and useless. I think it can be done, and done well.
