I have similar OCD when it comes to names. Which is bad, because in the process of moving my characters from Blackrock to Tich, I have to rename most of them!

Luckily Theck didn't change, nor did my warlock Synne, nor my DK Braaiinns. I named the new monk Woknwoll ("Chef" title for added lulz). Decided to go with "Diffraction" for my warrior because it literally means "to break into pieces."

But it took me forever to come up with a good hunter name. Unfortunately "Schrodinger" was taken (cat pet, obv). I ended up going with a Zoo pun: Zooperb.

Still need something for my rogue and druid though. I think I'm going to keep my mage's name (Gnomegusta).

Gnome puns are the AIDS of character names.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

:) I'm telling you, if you like references to L5R, there are TONS of great names.

I once ran into a Draenei Male named Kokujin. Don't remember the class, think it was Shaman, but he was BLUE!
I once ran into an Elemental Shaman named Yoritomo. The Thunder/Lightning reference wasn't lost on me.
A Fire Mage Named Isawatsuke (giggle)
Rogues named Aramoro, Shoju (my Shoju was a rogue before I deleted it to rename my pally), Yudoka, etc..
A Hunter Named Mukami who had a Wasp Pet.
A Human Warrior named Toturi
A Dk named Hanteiix (said it wouldn't let him have the xxxix)
Mages and Warlocks named Junzo

If I had continued to play into Pandaria, I had reserved the name Heigai for my monk. Most wouldn't have gotten the reference, but I would have.

Speaking of L5R Cards, I recently parted ways with my collection of Scorpion Cards. Wish it would have sold for more, but I'm pleased that a current player has such a kick ass collection of Scorpion stuff.

Gz Joe on number 28000 ^^

Yesterday our app was approved by apple to be placed in the app store. (ok, it got trough in 1 go, thats a success). But the second it got in the app store, 593 bug reports where shot in over a space of 3 minutes.

And our system administrator figured he could "test" the application aswell. So he's at my desk every few minutes asking questions on how to do something. Great, there goes my focus the rest of the day.

STAY AWAY I DONT WANT TO HELP YOU WITH IT! BUY SOME TRAINING! [/raaaaawrawrwrwrrrwrwrr!]

from the article wrote:In response to a question about whether the death penalty should be applied in rape cases, Daming reportedly said, "Consideration needs to be taken thoroughly for the imposition of death penalty for a rapist because in a rape case both the rapist and the victim enjoy it."

Holy crap. :shock:

The stupidity of the law can reach very high places.

I still find fun for example, that in Italy if someone threatens you with a gun and tryes to rob you, and you shoot him back, you are to be arrested and put to jail.

Bleah. People make me sick sometimes. I mean, how can any rational person even SAY that?

Also, if someone's looking for a name, just go below, and set it to a clan, and look at all their Personalities, EVAR. You'll probably find a good name or two.

Personally, I think you can't go wrong with 'Daigotsu', but I would think that.

So you know we had the holidays, Week of the 25 and Jan 1st, so the GM goes on vacation, several guildies also, so no raids those 2 weeks, so I relaxed and didn't log much and enjoyed time with my family.

So the week of January 7, when everything went back to normal, invites to raid go out, I whispered for an invite, I thought I had a bug or the GM was busy or AFK or the auto-invite wasn't working. This went for several minues, I tried and tried again, whispered several times of what's going on?

So it turns out I was demoted all the way back to social! (lowest rank on guild, little bit more than scum status), why? because I didn't attend the raids during the holidays.. like what the heck?. So apparently the GM was mad about bad attendance and she demoted everybody that didn't attend the raids. Well turns out one of the "trials" wasn't performing at all, kicked him out of raid and finally invited me.

So that's 2 weeks and I barely got "trial" status again, while some guy hat was away for months gets back and gets carried last night (he didn't know any of the fights barely i460 and died on most mechanics), he gets raider rank right away and of course the carry.

Well it's time yet again to find a new guild, sayonara

This is probably going to be received in a rather unpleasant manner... but I've been hearing you complain about all the guilds you've been in for YEARS on this forum. Have you given consideration that it might actually be you who is the problem? I mean, you repeatedly mention how various people in the various guilds you've been in either actively ignore you, pass you over for raid spots, demote you and/or "give" legendaries to others in place of you. The trend isn't the different guilds, it's you. Maybe there's something you're doing, or some way you're behaving that is causing others to treat you this way.
