Feb 18th 2010 11:12AM Your comments would be oh so true if low level characters didn't ask for it so hard.
Before the downgrading let me explain. This comes from during Midsummer my corpse run through Darnassus to get the Dolanar fire. I'm like level 50, and while I was up there I figured lets get exploration out of the way so I can get the explorer title. So I run into a couple level 7s. I wave and bow. They strike. I stand there for about 4 attacks just kind of wondering if they really know what the skull next to my level means. Then I one shot them both. I spend the next few minutes while exploring trying to avoid them because I really don't want to take the time to hunt them down. They hunt me down though. I ended up killing them each like 4 times while getting my exploration in. This is why we gank my friends. We gank so when people go back and make alts and they still have single digit levels THEY KNOW THEIR PLACE. If I'm exploring, and I wave and bow, and I'm not killing your quest givers, save yourself the repair bill, and save me the time of having to deal with your noobie waste of my time.

Feb 15th 2010 3:45PM Your analogy isn't really appropriate. The fact is if a crafter clicks the trade button when there is no money in the interface yet, they are saying, hey here's the enchant for free. They can see if you've put a tip in or not, and they know that the click of the trade button applies to EXACTLY what is in the interface. If it goes green then it goes green. Now if you just sit there and wait for them to click green because you have no intention of tipping then you're a shmo, but that is a different issue, and now what this user is describing.

Feb 4th 2010 10:58AM This is disappointing in the extreme. If this didn't come up in beta testing then I doubt even the great Ensidia knew about it. Accidentally stumbling on an exploit should result in a hotfix, and maybe revoking the achievement, but it should not result in a ban. I hope they loose business on this one, and I don't generally say that about Blizzard.
Feb 2nd 2010 12:46PM OMFG, this is awesome. That's all I can say. I lol'ed hard.
Feb 1st 2010 10:07AM Did you read this article? I mean really read it. The author emphasizes involvement, but independence. She talks about the fact that your children will need time to play on their own as well. She doesn't talk about scolding your kids when they are on too late, or interact with a situation inappropriately, but instead providing feedback and helping them to understand where things went wrong.
The fact is most of the kids I knew growing up who were "problem" children either had parents who were not involved, or who were involved in completely disconnected manners, which in no way emulates what is shown here. Parents should watch their kids, they should be aware of what they are doing, and they should provide feedback. You also jumped to the "porn" connection. You will notice that the example she linked was not pornographic in nature. It had to do with an inappropriate relationship online. Sexual content and morality is going to be established from household to household, but I would bet that your nice detached European parents wouldn't want their kids involved in say a neo-nazi group, or looking up how to cook meth in the basement. Just a guess. There will always be content that a given set of parents finds to be unacceptable, and they should be involved enough in their kids lives to know if they are mixed up in the wrong things. That is not unreasonable. You sit back, you observe from a distance, you encourage, you teach, and you allow your kids to fall down when you know they'll learn from it, but you stop them before they jump off a cliff.
I'm guessing you're a teen. Trust me on this one, once you're a few years out of college and you look back, this is going to make a lot more sense.
Jan 25th 2010 9:41AM This is how I learned to tank. I will admit I don't give advice to players who don't ask for it in randoms, and because of the dps culture it's hard to ask people in a dungeon how to up your dps, but it might be worth it. I know when I started tanking I said I was new, and was figuring everything out, and I got some great advice.
