Feb 28th 2009 12:13PM Really, WoWInsider may be useful, but they're not the be-all and end-all of information. Here's the forum link to a less-qq thread about the change, including some GC comments:
Feb 28th 2009 12:10PM I'm assuming based on your phrasing that you reported your Authenticator not working and that was why Blizz removed it from your account. The lack of a replacement Authenticator, combined with a trojan containing a keylogger, was probably your culprit.
Ridiculously safe or not, it's not 100% unless you don't actually use the internet at all, and since you posted here you obviously do. It's easy enough to get caught by a next-generation virus/trojan before your virus protection software has been updated to cope with it; after all, someone has to get infected for McAfee, etc., to become aware of new viruses and program their detection files to include them.

That empty space at the bottom of your bank window? That's where the "buy a bag slot" controls were before you bought all seven slots.

I think the point is that for some of us it wasn't a race. Different guilds are progressing at a different rate, and some people are just saying that they don't want to be penalized because of the speed at which hardcore players raid.
I get that it would be too easy to do with post-3.1 gear, but maybe it would be better to limit those particular achievements to being completed with gear at or below Naxx25 iLevel, instead of just eliminating them entirely.
Feb 23rd 2009 5:32PM Not sure if I'd trust the data on wowprogress, considering they can't even get the realm types correct and that's the simplest sort of thing to fact-check.
As far as these kinds of tracking sites go in general, I find them interesting to look over for trends, but I wouldn't set any store in their rankings with regard to my own guild.
Feb 15th 2009 10:00PM For those who don't want to hassle with mobs when creating ebonweave, you can craft them from on top of the cave entrance that's labeled as the Maw of Neltharion. I land up there on my flying carpet, make my cloth, and fly away again.
Feb 15th 2009 6:17PM For what it's worth, the reason that items like the rose petals and rockets are no longer able to be mailed is because they don't age while in the mailbox and Blizz apparently didn't want people keeping them past their intended expiration time. This change was made around patch 3.0, because that's when last year's rose petals started disconnecting me when I tried to take them out of my mailbox, and word from the GM after I ticketed the problem was, you guessed it: "working as intended."
Feb 13th 2009 2:23PM I finally replaced my Horseman's Helm (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=33808) when I hit 80 and could make myself a Tempered Titansteel Helm (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=41387).
I still have it in the bank, though, because the evil laugh rules.

"It would be like having someone dressed in urine soaked rags tell me my tie is crooked. "
Actually, the sartorial finesse of your critic in that case wouldn't matter at all, since it's a simple matter of observation. Either your tie is crooked or it isn't. If your critic were blind, then you'd have a useful analogy.
While I admit that it makes a nit-picker look like an idiot when they don't follow the rules of grammar and spelling that they're calling you on, they do have a valid point. I don't tend to correct blog writers—not even ones who are getting paid to write their blogs—but they (and their organization) certainly drop in my estimation when they make simple errors that could've been caught by having a copyeditor read over the blog entry before it was posted.
Not everyone has a perfect grasp of the intricacies of the English language, and that's okay; the trick lies in acknowledging your shortcomings and taking steps to ensure that someone else can make up for them before your product is presented to the public.
Feb 12th 2009 4:47PM Sure, as soon as anyone gives a rat's ass who you are. At the moment, though, you're just a whiny loser, and no one cares.
