LOL Abuse in patch 3.0.2 {WoW}

Sep 14th 2008 5:07PM as annoying as lol abuse will be (yay now the center of SW will be like running thu shat, I really really hate the sound of belf and draenei laughter), I think potentially more abusive will be mail abuse if it tracks total mail sent, imagine logging in to find 1000 mails from your buddy (at a cost of 30g) and having to go thru and delete them all to get to your real mail, yeah you could report spam, but if it's a friend do you really want to get your friends in trouble? (not the first time, but after that it'd be fair I think)

Heirloom items are for leveling {WoW}

Sep 13th 2008 6:26PM Sweet, now my (warrior) bank alt will get cool looking gear that isn't grey and isnt cloth!

Is Recruit-A-Friend a game-killer? {WoW}

Sep 4th 2008 9:11PM I'm sure the intention was that the friend doing the recruiting would lend or give money and gear to the recruited friend, also the recruiter would likely aid the recruited in learning their abilities. If you're encountering newly level 59 RAF recruited players in level 26 greens, then the one who recruited them likely isn't being a very good friend.

Breakfast Topic: Your last breath {WoW}

Sep 4th 2008 8:57AM I think my toons would say, upon death:
Fuck you.
Oh shit.

Macros saved to server instead of computer in Wrath {WoW}

Sep 3rd 2008 8:31PM This is indeed a cool change, but until it goes live, you know whenever you're playing on your laptop, your keybindings and macros are stored in text files (just explore your WoW directory you'll find them), you could just copy them from your main PC to your laptop.

Joyswag: The Art and Making of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed book {Joystiq}

Aug 26th 2008 7:13PM I would use my powers to bring peace to the world, end all wars once and for all. It worked for Palpatine and Anakin, right?

Forum Post of the Day: Guide for 8 Mages {WoW}

Aug 14th 2008 4:55PM I call shenanigans. First, not many 7 year old boys are going to want to play a female toon, most boys that age would find that idea too "girly" and 7 is too young to want to stare at "fine animated backside". Second, the spelling and grammar mistakes look like someone older trying to impersonate the writing abilities of a child, he misspells "diffikult" but gets the much harder to spell "succesful" correct, uses u and you in the same sentence (I would imagine using one or the other thoughout), spells hahah and hahaa and after the latter does the whole !1 as if he let go of shift too soon. Finally, the only people I have ever seen refer to levels as "years" are Roleplayers who are desperately trying to refer to their level in some in-universe-appropriate fashion (I prefer other words, level does not equal age), and I've met young gamers who know exactly what a level is and that the character can be a different age than their level. Overall good "troll" it got mention here so it must have fooled some people.

Caption This! {WoW}

Aug 12th 2008 10:15AM Autocats Transform and roll out!

Breakfast Topic: Does the levity mess up the lore? {WoW}

Aug 12th 2008 8:38AM Just so you know:
(from wikipedia:
"Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group"

So it's inappropriate to apply the word to the killing of animals. Since this is fantasy we can extend the definiteion to the killing of other intelligent species, but certainly not killing animals. Nesingwary is simply a big game hunter. The Peta parody is pretty dumb and completely out of place in the setting, but I'll reserve final judgement for when I actually encounter them in the game, maybe it'll be funny.

This is a very fast rug {WoW}

Aug 11th 2008 7:56PM "Requires artisan riding skill _or higher_ to use."

Does anyone else think the "or higher" implies there will be a "higher" level of riding skill? Why mention "or higher" if there isn't any higher level of skill? Also why call it a very fast rug, as opposed to a very fast mount, though I wonder if there will also be a slower than "very fast" rug as well.
