How to write a roleplaying description that pops {WoW}

Jan 28th 2012 5:54PM I agree with you to an extend, however I think that there are exceptions. For example, it would be perfectly fine to RP a war veteran who's lost a limb. Surely there must be some of those around, and I don't think it should be a no-go just because you cannot have it show ingame. However in that case you should be aware that there are people playing without a flag addon, and make your character's "special" trait visible to them in other terms, i.e. emotes or a quick /whisper.

Getting rude over someone not reading your flag is, of course, completely inappropriate. Flags are there to add some optional flair, nothing more.

Profanity filters, homophobic slurs, and Blizzard's shaky relationship with the LGBT community {WoW}

Jan 25th 2012 9:36AM The problem here lies less in the adult homosexuals who might feel offended. Sure, that -is- a problem, but the bigger issue is young people (who populate this game in large numbers) who are just about to discover and come to terms with their own sexuality. Growing up with terms like gay and homo used as insults everywhere around them, they are bound to feel that something is wrong if they fancy people of the same gender; unless they are very strong and independent personalities already, it is likely to ruin a few years of their youth and leave them scarred for life.

Jan 25th 2012 9:31AM Great article, thank you!
Only a few weeks ago friends and I stumbled about the censorship of those words as well, and several of us sent tickets on the matter. Some of those tickets got canceled without a response, mine received an "we are aware of the issue" in-game letter reply. Not what we had hoped for.
However to give Blizz some credit, I've been reporting players for the misuse of the word "gay" and similar for years, and as far as I'm aware of those tickets usually resulted in warnings and/or time bans.

The aesthetic consequences of new character models {WoW}

Jan 24th 2012 1:40PM Very much agreed! Personally I never played Night Elves, just because everything about them says "fanservice" - if ya know what I mean. Their dance, their /cheer animation, the goddamn idle bounce, and the way they stretch their upper bodies out further than should be anatomically possible (thus leaving the arms hanging in a hurtful looking position) to present their boobies like on a silver plate...
The only cool, fierce and strong female Night Elves in the game are the Wardens. That's especially sad seeing how the Kaldorei are supposed to be a society of strong and dominant women.

On this topic I'd also like to add that most races' females should have their breasts scaled down, or at least offered an option. Especially Blood Elves and Gnomes just sport too much for their physique.

12 Days of Winter Veil: Landro's Lichling from WootLoots.com {WoW}

I wish I had a tiny little lichling. Please?

WoW Rookie: How to buy someone a gift from the pet store {WoW}

Jul 15th 2011 3:47PM Important: Make sure that person doesn't have the pet/mount already! Now made easy with the new armory feature. :)

I've had two people giving me a moonkin hatchling... However I never told the second person that I've already had one, since I didn't want to disappoint him or make him feel stupid for it. ^^" Well, at least now I don't have the problem of choosing which pet to summon, I just summon my baby moonkin and think of both the lovely people who gave one to me. :)
