    I'm posting this here as this is where I keep getting diverted to.

    What has happend to the wow site? everytime I try and go there with any link I automatically get diverted to the Diablo site. and I cant find any Trace of it on the "Browse incgamer channel's" on the top right of the website.

    Re: wow.incgamer

    That part of incgamers has been shut down, Cader. I personally think it was the correct decision. As far as I know, Rush nor Elly still play WoW and the state of the forums was declining. For further questions, I'm going to have to direct you to them, they are in a far better position to answer!

    I am definately going to miss the place, that's true. But I have come to realize I'm going to miss it as it was about a year ago, not in the current state. In other words, I was already missing it. We have to move on. Do you play, or are you planning to play, Diablo by any chance?.... :)

    Oh, thats a shame :( Wasnt much notice (If any) that is was being shut down I only really go there once or twice a week now, but was on my way over for some info about my new druid I have just started.

    Havnt really decided about Diablo yet, not really followed it, I have got it (Got it free with my year long sub with WoW) so I might dable with it a bit.

    Would be nice if you did, or if you at least considered hanging around here. :)

    Re: wow.incgamer

    Don't know if you two remember me, but...this kind of sucks. I was still havin' a good time reading up on what was going on, as well as working on a story of mine in the fiction section. While I'm smart enough to be having backups and I'm posting it somewhere else as well, I might not be so lucky with the few loyal people who seemed to read my stuff.

    Oh well, at least I can see a familiar, friendly face here, and maybe I'll eventually jump into diablo once it goes live proper.

    Re: wow.incgamer

    Of course I remember you. You had an awesome story going on, but I still know you from before you started that.

    That is something that stings the most, the old posts, the fan fiction, all of the history in that place. I could spend hours browsing and reading old posts from the glory days.

    Re: wow.incgamer

    As I said, the story going down with the forums is not really a problem per say, as I have backups of everything and was publishing simultaneously on another site anyway. What I'm worried about are the people who waded through all 59 posts of it that I got out, only to find that the entire forum has phased to the beyond only some dozen more parts short of the still up-and-coming ending of the long-running story.

    Perhaps the best I can do for those people is to leave this here post and mention that a simple google search for the title, "Druid of the Blade", will get you easy enough to where you will find all of what I had already published, as well as the conclusion to the story once I finally get it finished and published.

    Sorry for the indirect link, but I'm not entirely comfortable posting a direct one on this site, having been around long enough to see that hassle a couple of times over. Try one of the other results if the first ends up in something rather weird-looking, like it seems to for me.

    Re: wow.incgamer

    With the WoW community pretty dead, and none of the team having played the game for quite a long time it was time to shut the doors. We will likely add a WoW forums section here so people have a place to post and i will see if I can do that today.

    Re: wow.incgamer

    You can repost the story, Icefrost. :)

    I never got around to finish the latest chapters for some reason. I found it without using Google though, it was an obvious site to check first. :)

    Re: wow.incgamer

    I guess so. Maybe it'll even catch a few new eyes around here.
    Now I just need to figure out the title to slap on the thread, as it is a general WoW board now and not a dedicated fiction category. Any ideas?

    Re: wow.incgamer

    Heh, only if you want to, of course. You don't sound too enthusiastic about it.

    As a title, you have complete freedom. "Fan Fiction: Druid of the Blade"? I dunno... :)

    Re: wow.incgamer

    Oh? I'm actually quite excited over this chance to correct some formatting issues and typos I had missed in the early bits the last time and always kinda looked back to it, wanting to bury my head in the sand for giving such a grubby-looking start to something that, in my opinion, improved quite a bit as it went on.

    On the flipside of that point, I am perhaps a bit stuck on the idea of wanting to get it right from the get go this time, that's all.

    I'll stick it out there soon enough, although it'll take me a while to get all 60 parts out there again, as a simple copy-paste job from wordpad just doesn't cut it without some editing.

    Sure, take your time. And in the event of a misformatting that you notice after the edit timer has run out, feel free to leave me a note if I need to edit something for you!

    Re: wow.incgamer

    Thanks for having it live as long as it did Rush and Elly. I was sad to see it go dark, but I remember all too well the effort it takes to keep the forums tidy. Congrats on the big 15! I have the text from the email still from 2003 it appears. I'll just have to lurk here now again to keep up on old friends.

    Took me a while to find this info. I'd been going mad trying to figure out why I kept seeing tanks and planes when I wanted to see druids and warlocks.

    Re: wow.incgamer

    TPMdm. Hahah, well we simply lost interest in the game a while back and it seemed pointles if our heard was not in it. I think WoW for us ran its course after Wrath, Blizzard just took the game in the wrong direction for us. We really only cover games on incgamers we will be playing or enjoy. We are gamers and if our heart is not in the game then why do it.

    I am playing World of Tanks and World of Warplanes right now so with the WoW site gone I figured, what a cool name to use for the site Dorjan and I will be posting on :)
