Breakfast Topic: Would you list WoW leadership on your real-life resume? {WoW}

May 7th 2011 8:20AM No I wouldn't mention it on my resume because I just know how that would go down in the government department I work for. You might get someone who understands. but it's not worth the risk. But if anyone applying for a job in my team put WoW experience on their resume, I would take it seriously, especially if it involved a guild leadership role.

Stupidly inconsistent...

Breakfast Topic: What's your favorite WoW holiday? {WoW}

Apr 25th 2011 2:44AM Noble garden because of the spring rabbit pet - I love how it leaps after you. Egg hunting is also fun. Then children's week

Reader UI of the Week: Preserve priority with Sakuyan's UI {WoW}

Mar 23rd 2011 1:41AM Different people find different things useful or necessary. I need buff bars because I don't instantly recognize the icons. Nipah doesn't. We use the available tools to suit our individual needs and tastes.

I see these differences as interesting, not a matter for criticism. People haven't 'done it wrong' just because they've done it differently.

So why do people feel the need to be so critical? Helpful suggestions and finding genuine flaws are one thing. Chucking out a whole lot of complaints about things that have not been done in the way you would do them is negative and not particularly useful.

This is not particularly aimed at Nipah - just all the folks whose first instinct is to just complain about everything they don't like.

Reader UI of the Week: Javey's UI and the UI crashing blues {WoW}

Feb 22nd 2011 4:21PM Lighten up guys:). It's interesting to look at all sorts of approaches. I didn't know about LUI, so it was good to check it out. Thank you for sharing it Javey.

There's a column every week, so I'm sure some of them will be more your taste. Patience is a virtue, as my Granny used to say.

Breakfast Topic: What's your favorite dungeon or raid memory? {WoW}

Feb 18th 2011 8:19AM Kara - my first raiding experience with my brand new level 80 lock. My guild were running it regularly, and they took me along as soon as I dinged. I never thought WOW could be so much fun. Especially opera - I so wanted those ruby slippers.

I'm not raiding these days for a few reasons, and I really miss it when I think back on the Kara runs.

(getting Hodir down for the first time was pretty cool too)

Ready Check: Give your progression a shot in the arm {WoW}

Feb 11th 2011 10:33PM @jayjay - couldn't agree more, and an important observation. When our guild raids the motto is 'learn by doing'. Reading the strats and watching the videos never really prepared me for the real thing. Especially in complex fights where there are are multiple debuffs needing to be either run away from, taken close to/kept away from other raid members or just healed through and multiple ads with different abilities spawning randomly, it took me quite a few goes to get on top of it. but once I'd got it, it stayed got. Too much impatience runs the risk of losing very competent players who might just have a different learning style.

Breakfast Topic: What do other players do that really annoys you? {WoW}

Jan 25th 2011 8:09AM People who jump up and down in front of you when you are fishing - usually in tb for some reason. Both irritating and monumentally pointless.
