Hey guys, I’d like to start a thread for WrA RPers to reblog and find other RPers to follow. I’m doing this because I feel as though my characters often do not have anybody to roleplay with and/or is typically roleplaying with the same people (or I’m just shy), and I’d like to meet more of you!! ❤❤ So reblog this if you’d like to meet other RPers in your community and broaden your horizons :)
Hey There! Want to see more Legion content, but have trouble finding groups? Pugging mythics and raids can be intimidating and stressful if you don’t have a large, active guild to rely on.
Lii’s Lounge is a growing discord community founded by casual World of Warcraft players on US servers who were looking for a stress-free environment for creating groups in Legion content free of judgement or toxic attitudes.
Lii’s Lounge is a safe space for female, neurodivergent and LGBTQIA gamers. Hate speech of any kind is not tolerated. We do not tolerate harassment of members or meter-shaming.
We are looking for reliable players with a desire to push themselves, learn from each other, and most of all- have fun. We believe in patience, helping each other, and forming lasting friendships. The group includes members from RP and non- RP guilds. We are mainly Alliance players, but we have several members who rep Horde as well.
Alliance-side, we regularly run Mythic+ Keystone Challenges and group mog/achievement runs of past content. We also have Normal EN and Nighthold on farm and hope to start on Tomb soon!
Currently we are seeking damage dealers to fill out our ranks. We know how hard it can be for dps to find pug Mythic+ runs and recognize the unique perks that each class can bring to the table. More members means more reliable raid times, and more groups to push keystones higher than before. There is no experience or ilvl requirement and we are willing to patiently help with both. You can also keep your guild and server, as this is a cross-server group formed through Discord and battle.net friend tags :)
We are also accepting a small handlful of skilled tanks and healers. A willingness to work in a rotation to allow room for others is a must.
Yes, stained glass scenes of merfolk in Ulduar is ABSOLUTELY validation for having non-naga merfolk characters in World of Warcraft, especially when you consider that
Azeroth is a FICTIONAL world that’s come up with far crazier in the CANON races and lore (vampire magic-addicted elves in a frozen castle, anyone?)
Real life ACTUAL historians have had to constantly change their understanding about past cultures and history based on new findings and information in regards to what has been previously found.
The aforementioned happens with regards to the Titans all the time with each expansion.
I personally love the idea of the mermaids. My syndicate boss main does port RP and her family home is a seaside villa. My Alliance alt is a worgen girl who grew up in Stormglen, Gilneas, RIGHT between the Blackwald and the sea, and grew up hearing sailor stories. I fully intend to support and have fun with these RPers and even make some of their stories canon tales that my Stormglen girl could have heard if they’ll allow it.
Do you mind if I ask why are there two Doom wikis?
No, I really don’t mind. And thank you for asking, because boy oh boy, I have a good story for you. Grab a snack and get comfy if you want.
It all started back in 2005, back when the Doom Wiki was founded and hosted in Wikia (formerly called Wikicities). It was all fine and dandy between the DOOM community and Wikia. The community never expected, however, that the Wikia staff had ulterior motives, and started introducing unrequested changes to the wiki interfaces, as well as other kind of exploits and strategies to generate ad revenue from the pages of every Wiki site hosted in Wikia, without the editors’ permission.
These changes made a lot of people upset, and not just from the DOOM community, but from other groups such as the World of Warcraft and GTA communities, just to give a small example. Remember that guy that used to show up every now and then on top of Wikipedia asking for donations? Yeah, the one Jimmy Wales, at one point he said he got about 4-5 million people in a month browsing the WoW Wikia. So naturally once they started switching the Wikia to a for-profit approach, anger ensued.
So they decided to move and fork all of their articles. But oh surprise, as soon as they started to move away from Wikia, the staff retaliated by banning and/or stripping many users from their rights to edit the old Wikia sites, and even going as far as to declare any calls to migrate to the user-maintained Wikis as “trolling”.
As for the DOOM community, they decided to move away around October/November 2010, and they finally re-launched the new site on September 5, 2011. As of that day, the Doom Wiki located at https://doomwiki.org was (and should be) considered as the Doom Wiki.
This is the old, outdated Doom Wiki logo. If you see this one you should know for sure you’re in the bad wiki.
And this is the actual Doom Wiki logo, the one you should see at the left of the Wiki if you’re browsing the Doom Wiki.
“Why they didn’t just delete the old Wiki before moving?” They couldn’t, and they can’t, because there’s no way in fucking hell Wikia would be willing to lose that precious ad money by allowing the deprecated Wikis to be deleted.
Basically the way the old Doom Wiki should be treated is by means of ignoring it, not vandalizing it. A good way to ensure that you will never, ever accidentally give Wikia your bandwidth and attention is to block their site by filtering it using Ublock Origin!
Feel free to add this filter in your custom UBO filters!
This should effectively prevent you from seeing any link from the old Wiki. If you wish to extend your middle finger to Wikia even more, just add this instead.
And it will prevent you from opening any Wikia sites, ever. Big props to whoever maintains Ublock Origin’s Badware list for the trick after preventing me and many others from clicking on Sourceforge for a good while. (That’s another story for another time.)
That’s for the old Wiki. As for the Doom Wiki, the absolute best approach is to ensure that the people outside the DOOM community recognize the Doom Wiki at https://doomwiki.org/ as the authentic, community-approved Wiki is by creating and maintaining good and interesting articles that can generate enough attention from the outside world, and by recommending this Wiki over the other one whenever you want people to learn and source their investigations about DOOM.
As you all know, I am an endless well of knowledge and advice. Well it’s time to take some of my own advice and come clean about something very important.
Legendaries don’t actually drop. It is a lie created by the Warcraft community bourgeois, like myself, in partnership with the Illuminati (AKA Blizzard Entertainment). Every player who claims to have a legendary is in on it and is lying to you in order to increase WoW subs. We are all on Blizzard’s payroll.
Gobsmopolitan is a zine featured around the women of the World of Warcraft - Wyrmrest Accord community.
Including Fashion, General Womens Interest Articles, An Advice Column, and Community Spotlights!
Right now as I prepare to launch the first issue, I’m looking for people who’d like to contribute to the 2nd issue, slated for July 2017. I will need models and people interested in writing articles. This is all done In Character - As such it requires your character to identify as a woman since it revolves around womens interests.
This is also potential ad-space for whatever you might be interested in advertising.
If you are interested in this project, please contact Falaxi on [H]-side WRA, either via whisper or in-game mail.
To be honest I'm quite jealous of your job. Not being spiteful here, but getting one out of college and being as good of an artist that you are, guh. I'll have to catch up. I'm a little older and less talented that you in some ways so I might have a bit to go, and I've only had a brief contract in the industry and now do commissions. anyway I hope you have continued success despite my envy. it may be a competitive industry but that doesn't mean I can't hope others do well. Keep up the good work.
Hey man, don’t stress. You’re allowed to feel envy. To be honest I worked my flipping ass off to get to where I am - went to a good school, went to a lot of conventions and conferences, mingled - met people, made connections.
So I feel pretty confident on where I sit right now.
On the flip side, I never would have been driven to work that hard if I didn’t get my tiny child head shit on by some people in the World of Warcraft community years ago. Lame, right?
In memoriam for the muchly loved @lilysaliao, who’s writer recently passed. While I never interacted with her as much as I should have, I often read her interesting stories with the notorious @hmratking and found her to be an evocative writer. But beyond that she was a warm personality behind the character and gave a bit of life to the people’s lives she touched. She is a part of the Warcraft RP community that should be cherished.
I wanted to do something more meaningful with my messy art. Hopefully I have done her some justice. Such a loss has put some things in perspective for me personally. We may never meet the people that we write with in real life, but we invest a bit of our hearts with them all the same. Take a bit of time to connect a bit more thoroughly to the person behind the character you love. I know I should.
Thank you to Rattie for permissions. A memorial in game will be held, details here.
