Dec 30th 2010 7:12PM Big Christie Golden fan here - don't know why I don't have it already.
Dec 29th 2010 10:36PM I would love to win this!
Jun 12th 2009 9:43AM I didn't think it would be fun at first, but it is nice chatting with others on different realms. The only way to know how awesome it is going to be is to use the heck out of it and try to beat me (I am way ahead of most) in winning the $100.
Good luck to you all!
May 1st 2009 3:22PM As a female with female toons - I loved it too. And I would like to see more sexy males too.
I put bunny ears on several males, intentionally. Especially the male orcs dressed in the spring dress. They looked cute.
This game is rated T, not rated for young children. Yup, it's sexist. That's what teens want. Those who really care generally aren't going to let their kids play such a violent game anyway.
Apr 20th 2009 6:53PM While Wowwiki.com is a great place (in addition to wowinsider of course) to learn about lore - I learned a lot by reading books. There are several well written series that are specific to Warcraft and really explain why everything is the way it is.
If I had read them first, I probably would have rolled a horde, as I have gained great insight to them and really enjoy the lore behind Thrall and everything that has happened.
Apr 14th 2009 8:04AM I am so excited. I have loved Christie Golden's other books, and really look forward to reading this one.
Feb 5th 2009 7:51PM That may be great for someone who has plenty of gold, has been playing for 4 years, and isn't willing to spend the time mining or using their gathering professions to make the gold they need. Botting means that lazy people with gold win over hard working folks who want to play the game the way it was meant to be.

They have every right to prevent outside programs from abusing the game. The effect of bots on the game is adverse to the way that Blizzard feels the game should be played. I see a lot of talk here about being a "precedent setting" decision, however have yet to see much about it in the legal industry blogs - which tells me that this is not as likely to be as important as wowinsider makes it out to be.
Feb 4th 2009 7:58AM Yes, its a game.
Yes, it should be fun.
But your idea of fun and the rest of the guild's idea of fun may not be the same.
Guild/Raid rules are generally there to ensure that your idea of fun does not cause the other 9/24 members of the raid to not have their idea of fun.
If you don't like the rules or the way your guild is run, find another that suits your needs, or make your own. Or don't join any guild, and just pug.
Jan 23rd 2009 3:21PM I don't know where you have been, but most Windows patches are NOT installed right away because they are known to be buggy. Most mid-to-large size businesses have specific individuals download, install, and test the patches before allowing the entire company install and run.
Because, however, WoW is online, everyone has to use the same copy of the software (so you can switch to your alt on a different realm if you like) and thus they all have to be updated at the same time. Trust me, Blizzard does a much better job of getting their updates fixed than Microsoft does.
