Does WoW Insider have editorial standards on the serial (aka Oxford or Harvard) comma? Fox's last column could have been improved by a serial comma, I felt. Do I need to start a campaign in favor of freedom, equality, and the serial comma?
Actually, yeah; our style guide doesn't allow the use of the Oxford comma. I try to slip them in without Lisa noticing, but every time she does catch one, she puts a pin into a little voodoo doll fashioned from locks of my hair she snipped off at the reader meetup.
No, seriously, Lisa. Please let me use Oxford commas. When I receive Time's Man of the Year award, I want to thank my parents, Jimi Hendrix, and Martha Stewart. I do not want to thank my parents, Jimi Hendrix and Martha Stewart.
Has Blilzzard announced what its stance will be on race-changing to the new races?
It looks like race changes will be open very soon after Cataclysm's launch, if not immediately. The realm-first worgen/goblin achievements were recently updated with the condition that only allow characters who've completed their respective starting zones can receive them. There'd be no reason to do this unless race changes would be available very, very quickly.
