Sep 2nd 2010 10:02AM Cheers Tim! As long as you're happy I'm fine too. But it didn't hurt to put out your name on the image, which they have done now. I'm pleased to see they're listening and hopefully they'll remember to give credits right from the start next time. Which they actually do most of the time. Wow.com is pretty good at giving link love and proper credits most of the time these days.
By the way... long time no posting Tim! Would love to see some more of you work! Maybe you could do some kind of follow-up to the map analysis? It's been a while. Is it still the same, is something a-changing in the community? Food for thought.
Sep 2nd 2010 8:28AM Yeah, but only in the linked-to post. I think they should reprint his name when they use the image agin in this post. Tim is a great thinker and deserves recognition for his job.
Sep 2nd 2010 8:04AM Wouldn't it be appropriate to give creds to Tim Howgego who made tha map over the WoW community? Just saying.
Dec 18th 2009 7:57PM This is really sad. You're by far the best and most interesting writer at WoW.com and I especially appreciate the genuine interest you've shown for the blogging community, always making sure to give credits to bloggers that are quoted. Thank you for all encouragement over the last year. You'll be missed.
Jul 13th 2009 2:31AM This is indeed well put, but I don't quite agree that you necessarily should focus on "useful" stuff, such as guides, theorycrafting etc if you want to get an audience. Surely, it's possible that wow.com prefers to link to such posts, but this article was a little bit wider than that.
While guides are fine, you'll find the simular thing at many already existing websites such as EJ, wowwiki, tankspot. To just rewrite that kind of information doesn't add anything.
I think a new blogger should rather try to find his own voice and dare to be personal in style and content (which not is the same as being private!). While writing about your latest epic loot or internal guild affairs isn't necessarily interesting, you can still dare to go pretty emo about things. An angry rant can give you a ton of comments.
I don't imply that you should write angry rants just for the sake of it - it must be true and come from your heart, or the audience will notice the fraud. But I think you're misguiding newborn bloggers if you encourage them to write "useful stuff". I think that's the problem with many new blogs. They write guides about stuff that is already common knowledge, people will shrug at it, no matter how much work they've put into it, and probably never return. Don't fall into the guide trap!
May 23rd 2009 8:42AM The layout is clean and looks nice, I haven't got any problem with that. However I don't get the idea about the tracking feature. Why would anyone want to display exactly what you're doing online? And why would anyone want to read it?
Well my opinions are a little bit too many and long to display here, but I wrote a post about it at my blog.
Still as long as you have people who want this I guess it's not a problem. I can stay out of it and just stick to what I like about Wowinsider, sorry, wow.com: the news feature.
Apr 15th 2009 4:25AM You've finally realized you've got a European audience! Cool!
Mar 7th 2009 12:59PM I'm the Larisa that this post links to. I seriously had no idea this thing had been up before. I stumbled upon the six word thing at another website: http://www.sixwordstories.net/ and thought it could be fun to apply at WoW. Anyway: nice to see all those ideas! Many of them really give me a laugh!
