What I am doing now

You are most likely here because you enjoy crafting. I have been reading up on some of the WoW issues regarding gold making, which make me realize that WoW is not the game for me.

If you want to play a game where gathering and crafting is the cornerstone of the economy, and are not faint of heart, I recommend EVE Online. EVE even has releases purely to support industry. You can play for free if you are good enough manufacturer or trader.

Be the builder in a villainous world.

Blizzard to display real names in online forums.

Edit: Blizzard have recently announced that at this time real names will not be used in forums

...Today, we wanted to give you a heads up about our plans for Real ID on our official forums...

This is a very bad move Blizzard. As the very large and growing thread suggests, this is not popular with a vocal segment of the forum readers. I also disagree with it. There are other ways to control trolls.

I have no problems with a common in-game identification. All of my toons are foo (foolich, foosecond, foobarfoo, notfoo etc). My vent id is foo. I do not use real-id, and will not until I am able to use an alias.

I have added my disagreement to the current forums (as only the new forums will display real id). I will be lodging a ticket in-game as well.
