Oh, so this forum IS a popularity contest? That's fine. I'll still continue to post even if none of the Popular Kids in the Junior High Lunchroom read or respond. There could be someone, somewhere who is the right reader for what I have to say, and they need to have an opportunity to find it. Have a nice day.
Hate to break it to you buddy, but...
1). WoWhead is much more popular than Allakhazam, especially since it is part of the same network of sites now.
2). These forums don't get anywhere near as much attention (or traffic!) as they once did.
3). We're pretty much a collection of people who are used to seeing one another, who have gotten to know each other for the most part.
4). It isn't a popularity contest; you just have to not be a douche/idiot/***/etc which is difficult for some people, I know.
Throwing out vague insults like "Popular Kids in the Jr High Lunchroom" is kinda stupid. You realize that the majority of the "known" names here are probably twice your age, right? If not twice your age, we are certainly twice your maturity
It isn't hard to have fun on these forums. It just takes a little growing up...
1). Don't be an ***.
2). Don't be an idiot.
3). Treat people with respect.
4). Don't do the tinfoil hat thing.
5). People who come here enjoy WoW; bashing WoW or their developers will get you sub-defaulted in a hurry. Yes, I know, these forums are full of people who are fans of the game. And yes, I know that is somehow difficult for newcomers to understand.
