Revision of WoWPro Blogs from Sun, 2009-11-29 06:12

A WoW-Pro blog is a blog full of useful, WoW-related information published by members of the WoW-Pro community. These blogs may cover specific subjects or a wide range of information. Often these blogs contain "mini-guides" - bits of information not suitable for a full-length guide.

This page will contain discussion relating to WoW-Pro blogs and how they will be set up on this site.

The blog functionality is not one that was in the original concept for this site, but it seems to be something several users are interested in using. I would like to start a discussion on this. Jame, feel free to jump in any time if you feel we are getting off track here.

I have created a new guide category: WoW-Pro User Blogs. When you want to create a blog, first create a guide "title page" for you blog that explains what the blog is about and how often you plan to post, and put it in this new category. This title page will also serve as the category where you will put all of your future blog posts. To create a blog post, just create it like you would any other guide, but place it in your new category.

If anyone has a better idea of how to go about this, please let me know. I think this way will allow the posts to remain organized while also showing up on the front page when they are posted.

Please try to refrain from posting non-wow-related info or stories in your wow-pro blog - that's what a personal blog is for! These blogs should be only wow or wow-pro related information.

Promoted to administrator,

Promoted to administrator, have you Smiling Good going, congrats!
I stopped playing WoW, but just came by to say Hi to the community and especially you and Jame. How're you guys?

Thanks Shika We've missed

Thanks Shika Smiling

We've missed ya! Hope you'll still poke your head in here occasionally to say hi even though you aren't playing anymore.

I've been really busy with school, then with visiting family. I'm pretty sure it's only going to be worse this term. I'm still commenting once in a while and trying to help out when I can but I just haven't been able to be on much lately.

I'm also quite busy with school, although I'm still rolling through pretty smoothly. Getting bored with some stuff though, I want to start learning things in school I actually WANT to know. iLove Physics/Mathematics/Science, although I'd love to have a computer-related subject fitting into my schedule. Some things are too unnecessary.

Gah well, I'll have to hang on 2 more years here and then I can start on a school where I can actually learn stuff that I am interested in Eye

We'll see how it turns out, I still have no idea what I'm going to do though. Maybe Astronomy or something that involves programming.

Just make sure that when you

Just make sure that when you get to that point, focus on something you really enjoy. I just decided to completely change what I am studying, quit grad school, and go back for a different bachelor's degree! If I had studied what I enjoyed from the beginning instead of what I felt like I *should* study, it would have been much easier!

Study

I will =)

Something you think you'd like though could turn out like - shit.. that's the problem. You never actually know how the study is going to be.

You're alive! Best wishes

You're alive! Shocked
Best wishes to you too mate. I'm doing fine actually, just had 2 weeks of vacation, starting school again starting Monday. Where have you been all this time?

Mhm, don't think I'll come back to it. Way too addictive, and it just became boring raping TOC-10/25 HC. It was fun, for as long as it lasted Smiling Hardest thing to leave behind wasn't the game itself, it was the friends that I have made while playing. Couldn't get it over my heart just to leave the guild I was in for over 5 months, but I did it eventually.

I have a lot more free time now to spend on other things (especially school). Bought a PS3 a while ago and I'm loving it. Also stepped into programming, trying to learn some new stuff here and there.

I'll keep checking back on you Smiling

Edit: the community isn't that active anymore, is it?

New job, so more work. Also

New job, so more work. Also spent more time with family and friends.

But I'm still around and I don't intend to ever let this website deteriorate. I've got a lot of ideas for wow-pro I want to implement, and I will.

Just give me some time Eye

That would be excellent.

That would be excellent. This is a great website that used to provide people like me, guildmates free guides (while it still does, some stuff seem to be getting quite out of date, and with release of Cataclysm not so long away, lots of guides will become obsolete). It would have been great to see this website working again. What happened to the levelling addon Sad ?

If you manage to revive this

If you manage to revive this site, I'll try becoming active again to help out.

Just thought I'd let you know for when you decide to start up again Eye
