  1. I necro the hell out of this post every year or three. Deal with it.

  3. *quietly necros the hell out of this then returns to the shadows of obscurity*
  4. Sept. 25th, release date for MoP, digital upgrade now available at $39.99 regular, or $59.99 for digital deluxe. Just log onto your battle.net account, and there’s a biiig button when you go into your WoW account, and you can upgrade your license to be ready to play on Sept. 25th.
  5. The grief I received was both IC and OOC. I was told that I was just after ERP because my character was pink with pointy ears. It was implied that my RP obviously had no depth because of my character's race and personality. My character couldn't go anywhere without bad things being spewed at him ICly, and OOC was little better. The 'old Horde' mentality had a lot of strong OOC backing and it left a foul taste in my mouth. I'd been told all of these things in whispers and to my 'face' in vent. When all of your public, spontaneous, random RP turns into the exact same conversation repeated over and over again - 'Elf, why are you here?' 'I have as much right to be here as you do.' 'WEAKLING PINK SKIN YOU DO NOT FOR I AM STRONGER AND GREEN' 'I have my own strengths.' 'WEAKLING' over and over and over and over... it gets stale, and in my case, it was a huge contributing factor to pushing me away from the realm. I rolled here in Burning Crusade. I left the realm in December 2011, in a guild transfer. It was one of the hardest, most exhilarating, liberating things I've ever done in this game.
  6. I was bored on TN. I left TN. I'm happier now, and still playing the game. So learn from why I'm gone, and maybe you can retain or get new folks. Thoughts specific to TN: I don't think that changing TN's tag will magically fix anything. At the core of the problem is that Nirvana realms do exist, and people know that they can just go to Wyrmrest Accord or Moon Guard and be inundated with Rpers and RP. Another problem is that to some people, such as myself, the RP itself is more important than the tag. It is up to the community - you guys - to make things work. To be friendly, open, welcoming, and warm to everyone. Not to sit back and be douchebags to folks, or to forcibly eject Rpers. Not to make people feel alienated for their character choices, nor to criticize people for choosing to play particular races. What I've noticed that is different between my years on Twisting Nether and my year on Wyrmrest Accord is that on WrA I am not afraid of approaching anyone for RP. On TN, I started to get rather introverted because so many of my characters were blood elves, and 'y r so man e elvus heur?' was done to death. WrA's community is generally warm and welcoming, a little goofy, and there are enough of these nice people that I can tolerate or avoid the dickbags. There's also a huge pool of talented artists who illustrate their RP, and post about their realm on their art galleries... and then their fans roll there and add to the pool of RPers and Rp friendly folks. ---------->Why I Left Twisting Nether:<---------- Read this if you want to hear things that drove an RPer who once fought and argued tooth and nail in favor of Twisting Nether away. Read this if you want to know why I lost faith in Twisting Nether and spent money to transfer my mains to my new home. Read this if you want to know behaviors that hurt TN. I felt segregated and pushed away by many Horde players, due to most of my characters being blood elves. I felt that much of the RP horde-side was insular, and only between particular groups or friends, or very centered, focused, and biased around their groups. The dreaded word cliques comes to mind. I felt that my character was not considered a valid member of the Horde in any way regardless of what my character did. I was tired of race being an issue IC. I had been a member of this community for years - and fought and argued in the community's favor - yet people were assholes to me. People were jerks. People were snide. People were sarcastic. People were not warm, welcoming, or kind. I didn't feel comfortable approaching people IC. Does desiring these things make me a lesser human? If so, then I'm glad I left. It is not weak to want to feel like a valued human being. There's one behind every keyboard. Start treating every stranger you meet like they're a human who matters, and just maybe y'all can turn this realm around.

  9. If you use Total RP 2 and a unit frames mod such as XPerl, you may have noticed that you're not able to view your target's states nor have the 'view profile' info button. To fix this in Xperl, /trp2 show to bring up the TRP2 menu. Click the blue screwdriver button that says 'settings' when you mouse over it. Click on the yellow-gold colored button that says 'Button Settings' when you mouse over it. You will see two text fields that say 'TargetFrame'. If you use XPerl, update these to XPerl_Target. You will need to adjust the X,Y properties of the button with the associated sliders. If you do not use XPerl, follow the instructions below the line. TADA! TRP2 now works with your unitframe mod. If you use a different mod to control your unit frames and would like to find out what to anchor the buttons to, you can download the mod MoveAnything - http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/move-anything Install this mod, and log in with it turned on. When you press esc to bring your default menu up, it will have an appended button below the default menu, 'MoveAnything'. Clicking it will bring up a menu. Across the top of this new window are little check boxes. Check 'FS'. Now, when you hover over a frame, it will tell you the names of every frame involved. Mouse over your target frame and figure out, either from obvious naming, or trial and error, which frame is your actual target. Use that name with the same instructions above to anchor your TRP2 buttons to your target frame.
  10. That Pandaman's pixelcount is too high for this ride! OUTSIDER!!!
  11. I WANT TO CUDDLE THE SHIT OUT OF THOSE PANDAS. Excited for Pandas and pretty much everything they previewed. Sign me up, I want to RP in that gorgeous land.
  12. Akula looks demented in your chibi drawings.
  13. Thanks guys. :3 Also, half the time with furries, the proportions are either a guessing game, or laid down by the commissioner. xx
