Blue posts

There will be plenty of information coming out of the press tour. This week, is all about getting that information to the media and fansites so they can show you what they've learned next week. I am not going to get into specifics of what is going to be covered, but you can be assured, it's what some would call a plethora of information.

Blizzard -- MvP (EU)
It's been quite a while since we've shared information regarding our forum MVP program. If you frequent Blizzard forums you've no doubt seen jade text stamped across threads here and there. Those with the power to wield green words are regular players - just like you - who've been recognized for their contributions to the forums in one way or another. And since we want to provide these player advocates with the resources they need to continue being awesome posters, MVPs have direct lines of contact with Blizzard community managers.

Now the time has come to bolster the MVP ranks. Those chosen for the program aren't official representatives of Blizzard, and they don't have to agree with every decision we make. They also aren't expected to give up their posting personas in order to join. Our goal is to find frequent posters who are a positive influence on the gaming community in some form, whether it be through posting strategy guides or tips on various aspects of gameplay, or even just bringing a positive and constructive tone to the forums when socializing with their peers.

If you or someone you know fits the description of a Most Valuable Poster as laid out in the MVP FAQ, email us at We select MVPs based on a large set of criteria, so don't be discouraged from putting your name out there if you only post on, say, the Protoss Discussion or DPS Class Role forums. MVPs are welcome to post wherever they're comfortable, including across the Diablo III, StarCraft II, and World of Warcraft forums.

But remember! The key to being a strong candidate is having a solid posting history. We're always on the lookout for the next shining beacon of good within the community to join the illustrious ranks of our MVPs.

Takralus -- Welcome Eldtyara (EU)!
Please join us in giving a very warm welcome to Eldtyara, our newest addition to the Blizzard Community team!

Eldtyara has been with Blizzard for many years, so she brings with her a wealth of experience and knowledge when it comes to the industry, our games and most importantly you, the players. You'll see her around from time to time, jumping into topics in her charming and friendly Aussie style. She's an invaluable part of the Community family, and we think you'll agree the forums will be a better place with her around :-)

So, welcome Eldtyara! Let the games begin ;-)
