Blizzard warns against buying gold {WoW}

Oct 21st 2009 2:30PM Technically it's against WoW ToS to let your friend or even spouseto even log on to your account, not even to try the game before comitting to installing their own, so I don't think they see any gray at all.

WoW Rookie: Putting a leash on playtimes for young players {WoW}

Dec 17th 2008 3:52PM Actually, this was new and news to me.

Thank you for this article.

Now if only I could implement it with the wife, it would be really useful.

Whoever suggested limiting the number of hours, but not necessarilly the times, that's a great idea.

How Adam got his loot back {WoW}

Mar 30th 2008 10:35AM A GM I spoke to also said not to modify the ticket, that resets its place in the queue.

How Adam got his loot back {WoW}

Mar 30th 2008 10:31AM Also to correctify(sic) a bit more, "Shouldn't have happened, and am glad you got your loot," but the awkward sentence structure would be better replaced by "I'm glad you got your loot and this shouldn't have happened but..."

Those in glass houses and all...

He said, she said: Does Blizzard support homosexual stereotyping? {WoW}

Mar 30th 2008 10:13AM Great article. Can't wait to read more.

I think some of the issues brought up aren't necessarily that great of an argument, but overall I agree with the sentiment, especially with things like the 'OZ' guild. Blizzard really seems to, not disrespect homosexuals as much as, only respect heterosexuality. Anything non-hetero, they just ignore.

This may largely, just be because of the way the users respond. Look at the naming issues for example http://www.wowinsider.com/2007/04/06/patchwork-enforcement-on-the-naming-policy/
You can see that the only thing they view as an issue, is what somebody complains about. If nobody complains about using "Gay" as an insult, the GMs will just ignore it.

For example, I had a character with the dark skin pallet and named him Pallynegro and had no issue playing, but one day when I began to question if dark-skinned azerothians were called by a different name, because they couldn't be called African American or nubian, as those both refer to earth locations. Then I was reported for a name change.

Well negro is the spanish word for black and I doubt Blizzard thinks the United Negro College Fund is racist, but the fact that I pointed it out, that made it somethin Blizzard had to respond to.

(I wasn't trying to cause controversy with it, that's why I changed the name, no questions asked. All but 1 of my alliance characters are named color words.)

Also I agree with whoever said BElf males are more uppity, regal, and foppish than gay.

A closer look at the WoW miniatures {WoW}

Feb 8th 2008 7:49PM My main concern is update schedule.
I tried to get into the CCG, but when they put out a new set every three months (Which they even said they wouldn't do, then did anyways.) I would love to pick these up.

I was an old school Magic player. Mage Knight. VS. Overpower. Recharge. Duel Masters. Heroclix.

I've played all of them and been a judge for most of them. I'd love to find a game I could get back into. But If I don't feel I can collect a set with my modest salary before they put more and more sets out, I won't even bother to start.

And if a local playing community builds, that would make it even better.
