Forum Post of the Day: Ode to the CMs

I have to say that I really enjoyed this little ditty Tatiana wrote up over on the forums. She's seen all the trouble the CMs are contending with lately, feels a little sad for our Community Managers, and decided to write a song for them. I don't want to turn this into yet another discussion about Shaman buffs (we've got other posts for that), but no matter how you feel about the CMs, you just have to be won over by lines like "You tease us with "When it's ready" and even with "Soon." / And you get flaming pumpkins as your forum toon."

Hopefully some musician more qualified than I (I've got my trusty Uke right here, but unfortunately my mic isn't quite good enough to give this thing justice on a recording) will toss in a catchy chorus and set this to music. I imagine something a little Arlo Guthrie-- how else could you pull off the song's best joke: "In excitement I click on the Blue post, / To see if it's "Soon," or "!!!" or " If you have any complaints or feedback regarding a Community Manager, please email Thanks!" Funny. And if someone does put it together, drop us an email about it-- we'll be sure to play it on the podcast.

The whole thing is reprinted for posterity after the break.

Soon the Crusade is Burning
-- by Josh Refenes (aka, Ragbar)

Started out on Launch Day, Couldn't wait, install and play,
In Azeroth there's Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms too

Darnassus, Durotar, Silithus is very far
Stranglethorn, Elwynn Forest, don't forget Westfall

Level up, quest grind, AoE will save you time
Move on up, don't delay, South Park just killed boars all day

Ganked again in STV, corpse camping, let me be
My class sucks, it's not fair, I'm rolling warlock

Soon the Crusade is Burning
In a few more days,
We'll waste our lives away
Soon the Crusade is Burning
Don't even try to fight it
You know you're gonna buy it

The Holiday Forum Song, aka The First LOL

The first LOL
On the forums did say,
"U should stop your QQing and just lrn2play
If u lrn2play
Then u won't stay a sheep
As that POM Pyroblast makes your eyes weep.
Best lrn2play or you'll stay in nub hell."

The OP logged on,
And he saw the flame
From that level 1 forum alt trolling for game
And to his great shame,
He swallowed the bait
And there was no rogue needed to Seal this Fate.
Post on ur main if u think ur so swell!"
