Pre-Shattering WoW Database Active
2010/11/26 at 10:31 AM
A quick announcement for people recovering from their overdose of various culinary delights:
we took a snapshot of our database right before The Shattering and have made this snapshot available for users!
Obviously, this archive will not see any updates whatsoever, but with all the reminiscing about how things were "back in the day", we thought some of you might appreciate being able to link to evidence of just how far up that hill you had to walk in the snow.
Both ways, of course.
You can access the archive site either via the "Archive" link in the top left corner of any Wowhead page or by visiting the URL below:
When you think of how things were back in the day, what do you remember about WoW?

Personalized Search Update: Now Works On All Completion Data
2010/11/24 at 10:19 PM
Remember when we posted yesterday to let you know about our new
Personalized Quest Searches
Well we've published a little tweak to update it—you can now filter
any search you have completion data for, based on whether or not you've completed it!
That means you can sort out any of the following categories based on whether or not you've completed them:
(so you can sort by which ones you have at Exalted and which ones you don't)
There's a lot of potential here, and I'm really eager to see how you guys use it. Let us know!

. But some of you guys are still waiting for the Cataclysm, which'll bring the highly-anticipated, even more exciting option:
worgen and goblin player characters
We've compiled a bit of information (which can regularly be found in our

be making come Cataclysm?
Check out the info after the break!

The Weekly Marmot - Learning from Leadership Mistakes
2010/11/24 at 1:02 AM
This week, while everyone else is busy talking about the Shattering and how Azeroth has been changed forever and Deathwing is on the loose... I take some time to talk about how awful I am. Specifically, I talk about how making mistakes is a core part of being a guild master, and learning from them is key.
Also, I take a shower.
