Chair Game Object IDs

As a short mention, I figured it'd be useful to make a visual listing of the various chair models available.  Not only would it be useful for CotH GMs (though the entry IDs in the 900000 series are custom), I figured others would be able to benefit as well.

Feel free to take a look at the work in progress at!  I also intend to make a visual listing of tables as well, so stay tuned!

IC Auctions

So, after seeing some of the feedback from a recent IC auction, I figured it may be ideal to make a post about it.

My intention here is to gather what folks think are good items to put up for IC auctioning.  So far, I've provided a lot of epics and some other nifty things for the previous (Ratchet) auction, and then added on some more epics to this one (Dalaran).  However, for this one I also added a few more junk/amusing items; the expectation was that folks would be bid whatever they wanted if the items were known ahead of time, or to actually be a bit more stringent if it was random.  By stringent, I was expecting maybe a dozen silver or so at the most.

People surpassed my expectations, however!

Note that I presume Cressy mostly randomized what wrapped items were given, so regardless of whether you got an epic item or junk, it was kinda chance in this case.  For the previous auction, there were several items that were auctioned as-is, though.

Anyway, as I stated before, I want to hear what folks believe should be offered up for auction.  In addition, I know Cressy intends on running various quests to help dispense the IC currency gained back into the character-base.  If the IC auctioneer thing works out well, I may make a post in Personals for another auctioneer or two to induct into Grogporter Trade, but I'll worry about that later on.

Server restart: Free class/riding training?

So with the impending server restart, there are several things to consider.  One thing that I just thought of tonight was to completely remove the cost of training class skills and riding training.  Should I do this, I would also change the monetary reward for a newly-leveled 80 character from 3,000 gold to something like... probably 1,000 at most.  I feel that would be a fair trade, considering the main goal of the starting money was to pay for training costs.

To-do: Useful stuff

For a while I've been meaning to make some useful posts on here - particularly involving things such as some suggested guidelines for certain types of community leaders, polling for opinions from visitors about whether they believe certain types of projects should be headed by a single person or a 'group' or 'council' of sorts, etc.  Eventually I will do this!  Just not now at almost 4am.  :(
