Feb 25th 2011 9:40AM Before I begin I would like to say I am 17, for the past 3 years have been running a social guild, and have worked with a lot of both children and adults.
Like it or not, Warcraft is an open book game, you will run into people who will try to harass you, you will meet people who will lie, cheat, scam, steal, and grief. When I first started off as a Guild Master I thought running a guild would be easy, just pop on daily and hang out with people. After about 3 months of running my Guild I realized that it's not easy.
We actually had a problem like this about 5 weeks ago, someone came into our guild and began to advertise he was selling items in trade chat. At first I thought nothing of it and let him speak; I logged off about 30min latter to get some shut eye.
The next day, I log on and see I have mail from another older member, saying how this new kid, "stole" 100 gold from him. After a quick talk with him, I discovered the kid was trying to pass of Plain Letters as high selling Enchanting Recipes.
I did what any good GM would do, I demoted the kid to the lowest level possible, and set him aside to talk to him. I did not curse, (Unless I'm messing around with a few of my guild mates) I did not name call, but I told him what he did was wrong and breaks our guild rules. After typing up a long sentence, trying to calmly convince him to return the gold, I get the response "F*** you, and F*** your guild"
Of course this was followed by my favorite part of the job, /gkick. I confronted the member that lost gold, and repaid him with my own. When I asked him if he wanted me to report the kid, I was told to let it slide.
My point is; If you are dealing with anyone, always act mature. Trolling and Profanity won't solve anything. Especially when dealing with someone younger.
I've been a GM for 3 years now, I've meet people who I would do anything for, and I've meet people who I wish never set foot on my server. This is a MMORPG, you never know who is playing on the other side of that computer.

For sets in my bank...
Some How I also manage to have 6 dress up suits... among other items I cant get rid of...
A Blue Dinner suit/Hat/Gloves/Boots
Tux (All male night elves have one.)
Mid-summer fire fest set
And top that off with atleast 3 Oldworld sets that I keep for no good reason...
Top that off with the Ingame "Toy" trinkets...

I find it best to have my other 5 80s do all the AH work... Cyon just sits back, dresses up, and hosts guild meetingings....
That is when hes not raiding, PvPing, or soon to be leveling, OFC.
Dec 1st 2010 7:10PM Yumfries really outdid himself.
I don't normally comment on Moviewatch, but I feel the urge too.
Normally when I see a post by him, I think to myself "Great, I need a pick me up today; Let sit back and enjoy 5 minutes of 8 year olds shouting about boobs and newbs."
When I first saw the Human death Knight with Shadowmourn I expected it to be about mindlessly killing... but then... it changed on me...
I watched this expecting it to become one huge immature punch line... but in the end I shed a tear...
Yumfries you have proven yourself to be a Hero...
Nov 9th 2010 1:49PM Just like the first time.

Looks like someone has never played a mage before.
Its NOT worng to ignore people. It never has been.
Its asshats like you that piss me off; you Begbegbegbegbegbegbeg.
But when the time comes that someone helps you; you dont even offer a "Thank you."
Now here you are on Wowinisder trolling people because you cant accept the fact that you are NOT importaint.
Chill out; Shut up; Play WoW; and Leave.
You dont need to be there every time someone makes a post; unless you need the attention.
