I'm starting to think that if the op can't control their temper, we should ignore them by default.

... and wait until they've got a hold of themselves.

they should set the NPCs up like the AH one are set up....where you cant stand on top of them to screw someone else up from talking to them

Grr! Yeah, some people can be jerks. Some people are just oblivious though, too. If you think someone is specifically and intentionally blocking an NPC in a malicious way, that is behavior specifically mentioned in our harassment policy, and something you can report that player for and we'll take a look.

An easy workaround though is enabling nameplates for friendly characters (default Shift+V) and then right click on the nameplate of the NPC you're wanting to interact with.

I was like that last year. And in the early years of WoW when the holiday was new and everyone still participated in it. And in early Wrath when mammoth piling was a thing. This isn't new, it's not because of CRZ and it's not the end of the world. Just use the interaction suggestions you've heard here or wait a bit for the excitement to die down.
Yeah, but that's not the point and you know it. Its about the rude behavior and the fact people purposely try to make things difficult for no reason other than to be posterior "hats"...
If everyone targets and interacts..the "fine individuals" will just move along because it is a waste if they are not screwing with anyone.

Only people from CRZ have big mounts? Much QQ


Oh yes, always people from other servers are the problem.

I do wonder how the game is coded to auto-dismount you in most buildings, and whether that could be applied around mailboxes and popular NPCs.

Some people find a way around obstacles.

Some people come to the forums and cry.

That just looks like it's popular. :) But yeah, like I said you can report a person if you think they're being malicious about it, or just do the Shift+V to enable friendly nameplates.

I defaulted my interact to 'alt-f4' and for some reason it just exits me out of the game... Prolly just some bug.

It is popular. Which is good. Just not used to the CRZ's after being on a relatively quiet realm for so many years! Luckily I was able to get my quests ^_^ But, I was wondering (maybe I'm wrong), why is it that the horde christmas tree is in Orgrimmar where there is no cross realm and alliance isn't in Stormwind??

I play on one of the most populated servers. This issue happens pretty much daily. The truth of the matter is that despite it happening daily, it usually takes me in the order of 5 to 8 seconds to resolve - either by using this method, or just trying to get lucky with my mouse placement.

Five to eight seconds.

How long did it take you to complain on the forums about it?

that would be so annoying though, running through the city and being randomly dismounted if you get too close to a mailbox

might be better if you were auto dismounted after ____ seconds of not-moving/jumping while standing in very close proximity of a mailbox/questNPC

For me, it's not the fact that there's people standing on the quest-givers (I just /target then use my interact key as a workaround.)

For me, it's the fact there's a group of around 40 horde, give or take, literally camping the greench and AoE spamming the treats and metzen preventing any alliance from completing their daily. I don't mind some PvP action on a PvP server, but this is ridiculous.

Maybe this one is a better view of everyone crowding all over the NPCs http://tinypic.com/r/j98pia/5

make it an auto dismount zone around npcs just like inside buildings, problem solved
Back as a Creature Handler in my Star Wars Galaxies days there was a command called /summon that would allow a Master Creature Handler move a large pet/mount from blocking a Terminal/Ticket Vendor by simply making the Mob walk to him. The greatest anti-troll command ever.
