New Features: Contact Tool and Heirloom Slider
2010/02/22 at 8:14 PM
Wowhead has implemented a few tasty new features!
First, we've created a whole new architecture to let users contact us. You can now use the
link found at the top of the page to contact us using the nifty lightbox pictured at the right. We've also upgraded the interface used to report comments, forum posts, screenshots, and
data, so use those report buttons!
It's also worth mentioning that the tool works even while you aren't logged in, so now you guys have no excuse not to use it!
In addition, we've also added a
to all of our
item pages — which you can drag to see the stats change as your level does.
Could it be any more convenient?
Go give them a try and let us know what you think!
Some Private Profiles Reset
2010/02/17 at 4:05 PM
If you were one of the users who was concerned about profile privacy issues, please go to your user page and double-check your private character status!
We made an internal fix and unfortunately we had to wipe part of the data which determined which profiles were private and which were not.
All good now, but unfortunately you MAY have to
your profiles as private. Just use the "User Page" link in the top right to go to your list of characters and profiles, select the checkbox, and click "Make Private".

From the looks of it, this world event is going to be much closer to what we saw last year (unlike the
Love Is In the Air
event), so previous experience should apply. We've also pulled out all the stops to make a fully featured table with links to the locations of all the

Yeah... We're Dropping Support for IE6
2010/02/10 at 8:10 PM
I'm sure this will come as no surprise. What with all the talk about security holes, and the advanced age of the browser (what, nine years now?), major websites are dropping IE6 support left and right—and that's not to mention the specific concern about the security of WoW accounts.
So let us say officially:
We will shortly be dropping support for Internet Explorer 6 (IE6)
Now for those of you who are stuck with this geriatric browser for whatever reason, don't despair! This isn't quite as harsh as it sounds—it doesn't mean the page is suddenly going to stop working completely in IE6. It only means that if we make a change or an update that makes the page look funny in IE6...well, we're not going to lose any sleep over it.
No longer worrying about maintaining support for this old browser will enable us to spend more time developing new features, and to make sure we're taking advantage of all the technological advances newer browsers have to offer.
So if you're still using

from last year—there's a LOT of new content, and most of it isn't public knowledge yet. We've taken the time to dissect the information we have and try and construct in advance what you may be seeing this year—and as the event goes live, we'll be updating the guide in real time!
