Short time lurker, first comment here.
Why you guys hate some games so much?
I mean, Rift is a good game, WoW is a good game, and I have heard some good things about ToR, yet this place has a continuous flame war towards some games, ToR and Rift being top targets.
All I know is me and my friends, long time players in another mmo's are enjoying this game. We haven't finished the content yet, and it will be a long while before we do.
Yes, we are not hardcore players, but we neither are casuals (20 hours a week or so).
I, for example, just extended my subscription to 6 months (from 3 months) since Trion has showed expertise churning out content in a rate I have never seen before. And kudos to them. I hope they set an example for other companies to follow.
It seems the user base in this website finish the content in a week or two, in most games, and is out of touch with normal players, but that is just my opinion.
Just enjoy the games.
Then again this is the internet and I guess flaming is part of the culture, but, oh well.
tl;dr; Stop hating. Most players have a lot of things to do in Rift and we are glad the way Trion been working. Keep it up!

I don't have only "one" resume, I always customize my jobs and skills in the resume depending in what job position I'm applying. Lets say I was a TA in college and I'm applying for a programming position, I would exalt that I was a programming TA , working with various languages and my dominance in algorithms, group working and problem solving are excellent. OTOH if i was applying for a manager position I would exalt my leadership roles when i was a TA.
The same thing with WoW. A hobby that makes you work in teams or take a leadership role, in a constant manner, 2-4 times a week, says a lot about the person. It shows responsibility, group solving skills, team work,sociability and constancy. All of those skills look great in a resume, and the fact that you are doing it in your spare time makes you look like well rounded individual.
Of course, if the company you are applying has no idea what WoW is and it might bring awkward questions, maybe is better to leave it out. But if it is at all relevant, go for it.
