Hi folks! Today I discovered a very interesting site called Charpool (site, tour, wiki entry). Basically, it’s used to keep and share a timeline of your character. You can sign in with many existing accounts you might have (such as OpenID), or you can create an account there. Once you’re logged in, you can claim a character, and then start playing with it. Most people use it to track achievements, notable screenshots, and leveling, as well as keep a journal and keep track of their friends and guild. An example of a typical page is the site creator’s character page.
One of the niftier features is its ability to hear your tweets if you tag them appropriately. You have to tell it what your account is, and then tag any tweets you want it to listen to with #wow and #1. They will appear in your timeline automatically. You can also create a note (like a blog post) and upload photos (screenshots, etc).
Tune in next week!
The resource site spotlight (aka wiki tiki utility posts) should happen every week, is written by Euripides from outdps.com, and endeavors to fill your favorites bar with an unmanageably large quantity of WOW resource sites. So much knowledge that it hurts. Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.
This week at Blog Azeroth we get all political! Euripides of OutDPS muses upon the following point
The US hunting and gun lobby is quite powerful. The US Fish and Wildlife Service says 12.5 million people hunted (in real life) in the US in 2006. The number of WOW players has reached 11 million globally, over half of them US based.
Here’s my idea for a shared topic: How would our lives change if a lobby representing the interests of US WOW players had as much clout per capita as the hunting (and long gun) lobby?
Would President Obama have photo-ops with him rolling a Paladin? Raiding Naxx? Would politicians have to try to balance their message so they attract people who are partial to both Horde and Alliance?
Rising to the challenge is MomentEye from NoobSaysWoW, with a highly entertaining look at the possible strengths (and weakness!) of the WoW player base in the political scene. I take a more… Warlocky view of the situation at Destructive Reach.
What do you think? Could WoW players really influence global affairs? Have your say by linking your post on the Blog Azeroth Forums, or suggest your own Shared Topic!

Even if it isn’t asked, we all appreciate your questions
Outside of that, we will love to have you join us and partake in an enlightening discussion that is sure to follow! Hope to see you there!
