About this Blog

On Mission and Purpose

It is very simple; I have no mission, no purpose, in writing this blog, other than to ruminate, speculate, communicate, and possibly expectorate from time to time. You will find herein: dreary tales of angst, bright tales of triumph, ennui, opinion, analysis, and the day to day musings of myself and the various characters that live and breathe under this banner.

Each character (i.e. alt) under this roof has a voice, and will use it from time to time. Some time in the same way that I do, and in others, as part of a story, RP-ish or not.

I might even sing a little bit.

Note; this blog is the continuation of my old blog on Blogspot. I did not migrate the posts from over there because image links and so forth tend to break when one does, and I’ve had enough of that already.  It’s still up, and searchable, and feel free to stop over and peruse the past.

On Comments

I have very few rules on comments.

  • Be respectful. You may disagree, but that does not mean you should be a jerk about it.
  • Be respectful. If someone disagrees with you respectfully, you are obligated to respond in kind, if respond you must.
  • You will be censored. You have all the rights in the world to stand in the middle of your home and spout obscenities. Once you are in my domain, however, my rules apply. If you don’t like it, start a blog and enjoy yourself.
  • Comments will close on old posts.  Spammers like to show up and comment on old posts, as do trolls. If you have a legitimate comment to make on an old post, feel free to email me.
  • Wheaton’s Rule applies. In the immortal words of Wesley Crusher himself, “Don’t be a dick.” In the case that none of the above apply, Wheaton’s Rule applies.
  • Once I have made a decision, I will not argue about it. There are no second chances, there are no grace periods. All of the above are standards of human decency. I put them on the record to say that I have, but, really, there is nothing up there that you should need to be told. Ergo, one strike and you’re out.

On Header Artwork

  • Header images are screenshots and WoW-related artwork, rotated through a selection of various  images. This is a product of the  WordPress theme I use; all you need to get this on your own site is to get the same theme as I have. Links at the bottom of this page (and all other public pages).
  • Screenshots are from my own game experience. I make no particular claims other than don’t claim they’re yours.
  • Artwork is from the Blizzard community site’s Artwork section. They are not mine and are used under what I believe is fair use given the source that the images were acquired from.  If you are the creator of one of these fine works and object to them appearing here, please contact me and I will take it out of the rotation immediately. I don’t mean disrespect; quite the opposite.
    • If you’re looking for is a little link love in exchange for my use, I’m more than happy to play ball. I won’t be able to link you and your images easily, but I’ll provide a link list of artists in some form, if that’s acceptable.

On Linking and Blogrolls

  • I link whenever I use something from another site in my musings.
    • I insist on giving credit (or blame) where due.
  • My blogroll and my feed reader mailing list are pretty much the same thing, with some exceptions.
  • While I may read them, I do not blogroll blogs that only offer truncated feeds.
    • If this means you, please fix it. It does more harm than good.
    • If you fixed it, let me know so I can update my blogroll!
    • I don’t care about ads as long as they don’t do evil crap like blare out sound or take over the browser.
      • Though, naturally, the less annoying, the better.
  • If you blogroll me, doesn’t mean I will return the favor.
    • Doesn’t mean I won’t, either.
  • I am petty. If you have done something to annoy me enough, I’ll quietly drop you from the blogroll, no fanfare and no questions asked.
    • Petty != hypocrite.
    • I would expect no less of someone in regards to me, if that makes it any better.
  • There is no theme to my blogroll. I read everything, voraciously.
    • Well, except the ones that annoyed me.
  • Goblin blogs most likely won’t make the cut.
    • Strange little beasties, but, whatever.
    • I include gold sellers here because there is a huge overlap in the WoW Blog Venn Diagram in this particular case.
      • By include, I mean “include in the category of blogs that I usually don’t blogroll”.
        • So’s we’re clear.
