The Art of War(craft): Motion Theory Part III {WoW}

Feb 20th 2008 12:27PM Sober analysis of the Shaman, and I'm glad you managed to avoid some of the QQing that would normally accompany that analysis. I think you've presented the facts in a smart way. When placed beside other classes, it's hard to ignore that Shamans have very few ways of affecting movement.

Curse's terms of use deserve a closer look {WoW}

Feb 17th 2008 3:50PM Pretty much any site that hosts user-created content has a license like this. The rights you give to the site are the rights you want to give them: the ability to host and display your content on their website. They reserve commercial rights so they can display ads next to your content, or have a subscription-based service, etc. Usually there's also a clause that says when you remove the content from their site, you also remove their rights under the license.

Look out for language such as "irrevocable" and "exclusive." An irrevocable license is one that will NOT terminate if you remove the content, and transferring an exclusive license to someone is essentially transferring that right to them and them alone, effectively giving up ownership of that right (the copy-right being one such right). Curse does NOT have this language in their license, so you have no more to worry about than if you posted a video to YouTube.

To note: I am not a lawyer, this is not legal advice.

WoW Moviewatch: Here Without You {WoW}

Feb 13th 2008 2:49PM Hard to make a serious video with WoW, and it's hard to make one that people actually enjoy since people automatically expect humor. Definitely well done, and very inspiring.

Opening a dialog about sexism in World of Warcraft {WoW}

Feb 12th 2008 2:42AM I think it was a prudent decision to stop the sexism thread on the WoW forums. If you want a real discussion, it's not going to happen on there -- people are just too prone to immaturity and stupidity, and it would cause more harm than good. A good discussion can happen outside of the forums amongst people who understand the issues better.

WTS: 5v5, decent rating, misspelled name {WoW}

Feb 8th 2008 12:20AM There are always two games: the real game, and the game of getting around the game.

So, even in a game designed to be "fair," street smarts can always get you to the top as fast or faster than skill.
