They were neutral in vanilla, then started leaning more towards the Alliance in TBC, and are now an Alliance outpost.


Well, that settles things, you're looking at things from purely a game mechanics perspective.


It counts. Blizzard tries to avoid separating the lore from the gameplay when and where they can.

Or in Metzen's words, "The idea is this is a story moving in real time"(paraphrased).

You know, for the giggles, I'll humor you for a hypothetical.

Let's assume Nethergarde keep -is- an Alliance fortress for just a moment. So... which member-state does it belong to? Last I checked, Dalaran isn't a member of the Alliance anymore, but oddly, the soldiers at Nethergarde continue to use those tabards. Shouldn't Dalaran have sent them a memo, tell them, "We don't like being misrepresented, take those off?"
Also... the Horde has always had a fortress in the Blasted Lands. It just spent a great deal of time under ogre infestation while most Horde was channeled through the Swamp... within spitting distance of the Blasted Lands entrance. The Swamp of Sorrows was mostly Horde controlled up until Cata. This was why Stonard was a portal destination which allowed easy access to the Dark Portal and Eastern Kingdoms.

It doesn't belong to any members. It's a military outpost. That's why the civilians of the Alliance didn't bother going there--they went and founded Surwich.

It doesn't need to belong to a "member state" because the Alliance military doesn't swear fealty to any one Kingdom.
Surwich hardly counts as being a home for Alliance civilians, considering it's a strictly Gilnean village

Other races live there too. It's just a very small population village.
Hey guys thanks for the replies. Does anyone have any details about the Horde attacks on the Kirin Tor during the time of the Cataclysm?
