Dec 18th 2011 4:21PM I love this pet. This whole giveaway thing has been pretty fun to see (even if you don't win, it's like window shopping). Thank you for doing it. :)
Sep 30th 2011 3:49PM Just like Duskhawk said (as a fellow altoholic GM), when I switch main characters I just end up making my primary character the GM. It's annoying to not be able to fix ranks or permissions on the character you're playing all the time. Plus, you miss out on the opportunity to demote people to whatever comedic rank your guild favours!
Seriously though, it's good for a guild to "know" who the guild leader is, and a dormant guild leader (even if it's just an inactive characters) sends a subtle message. So even if you are a GL and playing all the time, it can be odd to never have the "guild leader" online.
Sep 30th 2011 3:46PM So it seems that this system will work as intended for both altoholic AND alcoholic GMs (as asked above)!
Sep 16th 2011 2:12PM I do blog about WoW. First, my silly paladin pugging stories that I later converted to Manalicious: http://manalicious.wordpress.com. I've been blogging almost two years now, and it's been a really fun experience. I end up writing about guild leading, news, raiding, mages and paladins (depending on what I'm playing) with some art stuff thrown in approximately weekly for good measure. I suppose it's an eclectic mix.
I did want to mention, since a few people have remarked that they sometimes want to write something but don't necessarily want to maintain a blog to do so - that in addition to the "Seed" program here on WoW Insider (which is limited to folks in the US, no love for us Canucks) most bloggers would also LOVE to get guest posts. It can be a nice way to ensure content, let someone dip their toes into blogging or say their peace on one particular topic, without needing the commitment of starting a blog themselves.
That said, if you find you often have things to say about WoW, start your own blog and make it known! I love finding new blogs to read. Blog Azeroth (http://www.blogazeroth.com/) is a great place for new bloggers to announce themselves, meet, and participate in things like shared blogging topics.

Aug 31st 2011 2:47PM Hooray! This column (and others you have written) have been just what I need to help me not noob it up too much when I have to go ret instead of holy. I'm looking forward to more! The one about ditching CLCret alone was a godsend (and my DPS went up, too). You see what I did there? It's a paladin joke. Er...Never mind.
Aug 24th 2011 12:24PM Good luck getting your last few pets! When a friend got her Celestial Dragon, she said that her husband told her it looks like a sperm when it flies alongside her dragon. I got mine just yesterday, and he's kind of right, but by god I earned that sperm and I'm proud.
Jul 26th 2011 4:26AM I definitely would have liked it if they'd made provisions for this in the feature. A CoT-like debuff would be ideal, although I suppose it makes absolutely no sense in terms of the "game reality," but then neither does people existing in different universes. I'd be okay with the suspension of disbelief if it meant I could run with Horde friends more easily!
Thanks for the link, Anne!
Jul 21st 2011 10:23PM Shadowpriest is my fallback position, I'd really take either. They seem to be fairly equally rare, though. (p.s. melted boomkin ewwww).
Jul 21st 2011 3:38PM I've always enjoyed Ember's parodies, she has so much talent. (In particular, I liked the Exodar Disco collaboration with Greyfoo but they're all quite good).
The moonkin song, unfortunately, just drives home the fact that I cannot find a moonkin for my raid group to save my life. It's as if they are an endangered species. I'll have to play that song in celebration if/when we ever track one down.
