  • A little treat to pass the time: the Gnome Chef Roulette addon

    So remember how a couple months ago I asked you guys about food and drink practices during raiding times.. and then I had a poll on my blog where I asked people to tell me what they tend to eat and drink during raids? Well, the results were surprisingly healthy (sort of!)!

  • Patch 4.3 poll!

    And here we go again.... a new patch, a new start, a new race!

    I'm going to be posting a series of updates once the race gets underway (starting today on the American servers!) but I wanted to start us off on the official "boring" day with a poll about what you're looking forward to. And for those of you grumps out there who aren't looking forward to anything, you can vote that way too!

  • Are you going to eat that...?

    So DREAM Paragon and I are cooking up a fun little social experiment... all about what you like to eat and drink during a raid. :)

    So to get us started, please go and participate in my two drink/food polls on my research blog. I'll post the next stage of our little participatory experiment later tonight... :)

    Stay tuned and bring your appetites....

  • What's in a name?

    We've got the epic guild names and we've got the goofy ones. We've got ones that make no sense at all.

    But does it even matter? If Paragon was called "FluffyBunnyPatrol" or if Inner Sanctum was called "MOARQQPLX" would that impact their success or how we viewed them?

  • Reflecting on this 10/25 debate

    As you can imagine, I've been thinking about the whole 10/25 debate. It's come up many community sites and we appear to get our knickers in a twist pretty fast about it. What's 'Better', what's 'Easier', what's proof of 'Awesomeness'? I've done both raid sizes and liked them both for different reasons. Difficulty seemed to be a less straightforward issue for me as it partly depended on my experience with that fight and my role in the fight.
