Links for U.S. players are below, and links for EU players are after the cut.

Don't panic about those WoW Magazine subscription renewal notices

We got some reports through Twitter and the tip line that current subscribers to the World of Warcraft Official Magazine had received notices asking them to resubscribe. Several people, especially those who ordered subscriptions and haven't yet received their four issues, took this to mean that their subscription had lapsed and that they wouldn't be receiving any more issues unless they resubscribed. This is not the case! We contacted Andy Salisbury, editor at the mag, and he had this to say:
The email is just a reminder. Those that paid for 1 and 2 year subscriptions will get their 4 and 8 issues (respectively), regardless of timing. We're not going to hold anyone's issues hostage or anything of the sort, it's just meant to let subscribers know about renewal!
So don't panic. The email was just intended as an "if you like the WoW magazine, resubscribe to it!" notice, not as a notification that you won't be getting what you paid for. Thanks to Andy for getting back to us so promptly.

Official WoW Magazine looking for guild gathering photos

If you have some photos of your WoW guild getting together in the physical world, you can send them to the Official Magazine for possible publication.

Andy Salisbury or Skaarjonic, one of the editors at the magazine, says:
If you've got any pictures of a real life meetup that you and your guildies had, we'd love to see them! Head on over to our forums at Wowhead, tell us about the get together, and send your pictures to letters@worldofwarcraftthemagazine.com. Who knows, you could find yourself published in the next issue of the World of Warcraft Official Magazine!
Andy also says you should make sure that everyone in the picture is OK with having their image published before submitting.

Again, these are real life photos and not the triumphant screenshot of your guild's Lich King kill. It's really cool you killed him. And I'm sure the screenshot is awesome. But it's just not what they are looking for, sorry. To retierate -- Azeroth: Nay. Earth: Yay!

WoW magazine preview now online

The World of Warcraft magazine, which hit a bit of a bump when it lost its Editor-in-Chief some time ago, is showing off some preview pages from its maiden issue. The whopping 40-page preview gives a glimpse of the magazine, which is scheduled to arrive at subscribers' doorsteps before the year is out (they're running out of time). The 148-page, advertising-free magazine is only available through subscription and will not be out on store shelves.

The quarterly magazine is available in one- and two-year subscriptions of at least $39.95 and $69.95 respectively (price varies depending on your location). Published by Future PLC, the company behind official licensed magazines of XBox, PlayStation, and other magazines such as ImagineFX, PC Gamer, and T3, the World of Warcraft official magazine is as visually stunning as the other titles in its stable, albeit somewhat light on text. The magazine shows off exclusive commissioned art, such as some gorgeous pieces by fantasy art star and Dungeons & Dragons veteran Wayne Reynolds.

The first issue's articles include lore visitations such as the story behind Sylvanas Windrunner, columns on class roles, and even an interview with vanity pet guru Breanni of warcraftpets.com. The art and lay-out of the magazine looks gorgeous and seems to be a seamless fusion between the World of Warcraft aesthetic and Future PLC titles, although it remains to be seen how a quarterly print magazine can keep up-to-date material with an ever-changing online world. At any rate, the archival magazine looks beautiful, even if players might be better served by online, current articles on the game.
