Yes I am!
After close enough to an hour of trying to get Squidly’s 1st Headless Horseman group together I managed to get a DK that could tank if need be and he had a couple of level 80 mates.
They were still en-route so I asked whether the group wanted me to get my Mage for an extra summon after this group was finished.
Everyone agreed it was a good idea, in fact nearly everyone else had extra toons they could grab too. So I said…
OK, brb, relogging on Gnomeaggedon
I had one of those blogger moments… Is this a reader… Is this a stalker… Who is this?
Yes I am!
As the logout timer counts down I see…
<– I’m Zain!
Ohhh, minor disappointment, he’s an old guildy, GM in fact, rather than a fanboy.
Do you know who you are pugging with?
Have you ever been running on an alt, completely oblivious to the fact that the people you are running with are (ex)guildies?
If you don’t know and aren’t told that noob you are playing with may be your uber raid leader, or the uber hunter may be the noob DK from your last fail PuG.
I sort of felt sorry for the 1st guy I pugged into the group. He had no relationship with the latest 3 recruits, whereas I had the whole of TBC. Sure I probably only ran with them once every month or so, but Make Love Not Warcraft was a friendly, chatty guild.
The party chat was full of text. News, friendly abuse, requests to rejoin the guild. I had a ball. HHM was nothing more than the catalyst for old friends to catch up.
It was interesting timing too. As you saw the other day I am now a core raider in Les Mags… A core raider that hasn’t raider since the 1st two weeks of 80… When was that, March, April?
More importantly they don’t even know who I am. Kinda strange since I recently posted on the guild forums.
Note to Guild “webmasters”.
Your guild website is the most sensational Warcraft themed site that ever graced the interwebs. However if you want to facilitate people visiting it during their spare, non-WoW time, make sure you offer a choice of site skins.
One of the objectives of a guild website is to facilitate out-of-WoW communications, but if people can’t access your website for fear of losing their job, they aren’t going to come.
The reason I haven’t been as active commenting here or reading and commenting elsewhere is I got busted at work on a WoW website.
This was a day after I requested a change of skin (or the option to change) on the guild website. I got told to just use print preview… The problem there is I have to browse the WoW themed forums before hitting print preview.
Sorry folks, but you just lost a contributor (worse, a reader) to the guild forums.
If I can’t use the guild website to stay up to date, register for raids etc, then I guess I might as well not be a part of the guild!
Anyway, this once chance encounter made up for the fact that there were no reins for either Squidly or Gnomeaggedon. In fact it reminded me of the MMO part of the game.
It felt good…
It was good…
Gnomer and Out, Squidly and Stout!
