Why doesn't WoWInsider play nice with RSS readers? All the other blogs and sites I read allow me to read entire articles, and some comments too, right in the reader itself, whereas WoWInsider requires I click to another page to read the whole article. Am I missing something in setup? Is this intentional? Just curious.
Two reasons. First, some of our articles can get rather lengthy, so it'd be a pain to scroll past them if there were no cut. Second, RSS readers don't generate ad views, which are what keeps our site running.
Will a new type of currency be introduced that is equal to 100g?
Unlikely. First of all, in the game's database, all prices are in copper anyway. Gold and silver are just a visual convenience for players. Also, money takes up no actual inventory space, so there's no real need to consolidate it, especially since most players never have more than a thousand gold at a time.
Matt P asked:
If you had to hazard a guess, why does Blizzard still include estimated time of service on in-game tickets? I got one yesterday that said I'd be waiting one year, three days, and thirteen hours.
Well, the estimated time indicator was broken as of yesterday; most days, though, it's pretty accurate. Bear in mind that depending on the nature of your ticket, you might get a faster response than indicated even on a busy day. A "stuck" ticket will usually get addressed faster than a harassment ticket, for example. There are definitely hierarchies for priority.
