Queue Question for y'all: Why is it mainly 3 people who handle the queue? There are several writers employed for WoW Insider, but I haven't seen many of them write a single Queue.I guess what I'm asking is...can Christian Belt write the Queue some time? ^_^

Maybe these are the most thick-skinned of the writers?

Certain people handle certain assignments. It's not likely we'll see Mike Sacco writing a Care & Feeding of Warriors article... that's Rossi's thing. Same reason the same folks handle Queue chores, I'd imagine.

I may be wrong, but I get the impression doing The Queue is "the fun job" at WoW Insider.Scroll up and click "About Us". These 3 are the senior editors. They've earned it.Although I do seem to remember them letting Fox do it once. It was like Mardi Gras up in here. Good times. They could totally do that again.

And if I'm wrong about it being "the fun job"... well, they're the senior editors. They're stuck with it.I think it'd be fun, though.

I imagine that its riddled with both feelings of love and hate. Writing the Queue can be easy sometimes. Pick a few questions maybe look up a few wowpedia or wowhead pages and blast out an answer or an opinion. Quick and dirty.But then you have to come up with at least SOMETHING to say before the cut but what can you really say the relates to a public Q&A article. So you either flounder, post pictures of your dog/cat or horrible trolling against the next writer. That can be either daunting or comical depending on their mood that day.And then you have to wade through pages of useless inane babble to actually find something to talk about. Like dumpster diving trying to find that one diamond in the rough and then having to settle for half eaten hot dogs instead.
