The Classifieds: Longevity sets the pace for guild communities

It's great news to hear about some of the long-running anniversaries our fellow gamers can reach. It says something about our community that we can span decades of gameplay together. It's more than just good news; it's a success.

Our hats are off to <The Syndicate> on their years of good times; we hope you have many more ahead of you.

Random Acts of Uberness

It's when another player lights up your night with precise play, a wicked sense of humor or unexpected generosity that your login becomes something to remember. Share your Random Acts of Uberness with Keep things brief (150 words or less, please), and be sure to list everyone's character names and home realms or battlegroup.

HealthyPets of Cenarion Circle (US-A) Collecting non-combat pets can be an expensive prospect -- so when I received a letter in my mailbox in Stormwind containing a gift pet from a complete stranger, I was completely dumbstruck. HealthyPets's auction house offerings are always reasonably priced, which is reason enough to patronize what's obviously a specialty business. And then there's his name -- who wouldn't want a stable full of much-loved pets to all be "healthy"? Sending a "thanks for doing business with me" pet was such a classy move and completely sealed the deal for me. I'm a HealthyPets fan now, signed, sealed and delivered. What an enjoyable way to share a love of pet collecting! -- Pleased Pet Owner, Cenarion Circle (US-A)
