Question for the Queue:Has WoWinsider ever considered reaching out to role-play servers a bit? I find that Know Your Lore and All The World's a Stage is quite helpful for knowledge, but I feel that some communities and guilds therein could use a lot of help and WoWinsider is a strong enough force to do that.

What exactly would you want them to cover? AtWaS has guides for story-telling and avoidig common pitfalls like god-modding and creating Mary Sues, suggestions for role-play themes and topics to consider. KYL has numerous resources for background on just about every lore subject that might come up, and I believe they consider suggestions for topics if you manage to find something they haven't covered before. At some point, we as role-players have to do the work and create our own stories.

I know I would enjoy seeing the lore and possible stories that could be behind each race/class combination. I know there was something like that prior to Cata about the new combinations, so it may just be a pipedream.

I know this is completely unrelated to the comment, but I still find it hilarious, and it is somewhat related to the first reply.I saw a website which let you check if your character was a Mary Sue. It had checkboxes for all the character traits, and story elements, and stuff. At the end it gave you a score, and how much of a Mary Sue your character was or wasn't.I did it, and used the answers as would be answered for Rhonin. In cases where I couldn't give an exact answer, such as internal thought processes and such, I answered as close to what I imagined Rhonin would.The test only goes up to 50. Which is rated "Kill it with fire". Rhonin scored a 125.
