I might get a lot of hate mail for this one. Might as well just be frank about it: I don't like the word "toon" to describe my character. They're my "guys," my "characters," my whatevers -- but not toons. Maybe it's too goofy of a word for me. I can stomach every ridiculous name and phrase and de...

They stated that everyone should quit using the term "toon" and instead use "character" -- or as Drysc commented, "char" for short. Something I will admit to being doubl...

Despite thinking we're pretty smart in general, we're just terrible at sudoku. We know that, conceptually, you can use any nine symbols instead of numbers to play the game, but we never wanted to try that because it sounds pretty confusing.

As someone who, admittedly, plays a level 60 Gnome (with pink hair and everything), I understand where people are coming from when they talk about the importance of the appearance of your in-game avatar.  But if having a "pretty" avatar is so important, how do you explain all of the Horde ...
