Awesome article, I enjoyed reading this a lot. It brought back many memories to the Vanilla- and TBC-era (and early Wrath... I remember getting killed by Loken several times).Two questions:1. Is the part about "You can still see WoW Insider's first-ever post, published on Nov. 23, 2005. It was immediately declared "the worst thing that ever happened to WoW Insider." by chance a little tribute to MAD magazine? That kinda joke seems right down their alley, and I remember their "MAD Almanac" from way back when where they wrote the exact same thing... "Blah blah 1954, critics immediately call it the worst issue ever" or something =)2. Will there be more articles like this one from time to time? I know it's not always easy to put something like this together, but I see the potential for a loose series of articles (not every week), as there sure are more little things like that in WOW-history. Would love if you would write more articles like this one!

1. Nah, it's just a little joke at our own expense. One of the most popular criticisms of individual writers here on the site is that they're "the worst thing ever to happen to WoW Insider," so it's just a running gag with the staffers now.2. After seeing how many people liked it, I'd love to turn this into a series, although I'm not sure how common they'll be -- you're right that it takes a while to compile all the little facts. But I liked writing it, so we'll see!

Thanks so much for your reply!!Would truly be great to see more articles like this one (Also would like to mention that I enjoyed reading your "druid year in review" articles tremendously...both very true and very amusing, with the humor being right down my alley).I also love the "looking back at old patch notes" column (Was it the archivist?), which seems to be on a hiatus right now. So basically, I love articles that look back at the old days, or weird or plain awesome stuff that happened in game. If such articles are written in a very entertaining style such as yours...even better! =)Thanks for the great work!
