Other times, the questions themselves are loaded or leading.

Captain Kirk called, he wants his dramatic pauses back...
Class forums are mostly read in silence because Bash said there's no discussions with varying viewpoints, since it's like talking to the choir.


Except for the priest forums, which are like singing with the Power Word: Choir.


So priests....*Sunglasses* Preach to the Choir?

YEAH!!!!!

Forward looking questions like "When is the patch coming out?"


Lemme give you the perfect canned answer for that one:

A Tuesday! :P
The real question, when is Power Word: Bird going to happen? Answer me blues!

I know it's been talked about before, but I've noticed blizzard really only responds to joke/fun threads with a comic one-liner


Ah, so quit threads should look like this:

(Player) Knock knock!

(Blue) Who's there?

(Player) Not me anymore!

Tuesday.

No, not that Tuesday.
I know it's been talked about before, but I've noticed blizzard really only responds to joke/fun threads with a comic one-liner or to answer very basic questions by new players (saw one a second ago that asked if they could realm/faction change at same time, worthy of a blue post?).

I know many posts are volatile and overly-critical on the forums, but even many of the constructively critical posts, even those that get on the popular threads list never receive any blue response. I'm just tired of useless blizz posts that at most just give the illusion of being involved in community discussion.


We answer what we can. Not replying to a thread does not mean it wasn't noticed. We read and track numerous discussion topics daily and relay that feedback to the developers in weekly meetings.

Forward looking questions like "When is the patch coming out?" or "When will <insert request here> happen?"; an answer may not be available until all the details have been confirmed internally. Other times, the questions themselves are loaded or leading.


Short version, 'you don't like the way we play with our toys,get your own'.

Power Word should just be a power word to summon anything priests want, IMO.

"Power Word: KITTENS!"

BAM! Kittens.

"Power Word: Coffee!"

SO MUCH COFFEE.
"Power Word: Coffee!"

SO MUCH COFFEE.


You can't handle that much power.

Reminds me of that xkcd with "sudo" (a unix "give me administrator rights" command)

http://xkcd.com/149/

Although I also meant the Power Word: threads in the priest forums, which I think greatly help the priest cohesion there. It's also where the updates to stickies were discussed.

Power Word: Alt-tab and have all my Songbell seeds already replanted!!!

... aww.

A perfect example of blue spending time to chime in with a feeble attempt at humor which further derails the thread. It would be nice to see more participation in game discussions and less in threads like hug a gnome or what cereal do you eat or what's your favorite /flirt.


I totally want the thread to move on to a tribute to the song Freebird, followed by a segue in to other rock songs, and finish with a request for Power Word: Cowbell.

He answered the question, and then had some fun.

I forgot that the general forums were a no fun zone!

I'm a hippogryph, what's this? You look like you need a hug, you get a hug.

/hug

Now that you've had your hug, please take some time to check out this helpful thread by Nethaera, Getting the Most Out of the Forums. We welcome constructive feedback.
