Twisted Nether Blogcast is having a TShirt design contest!
Whereas Fim and Nibs are resolved to attend Blizzcon and wherefore it is found that they would prefer to not go naked, it is therefore resolved that there shall be TNB tshirts of immense beauty and identifiability! This TShirt having both an image and a saying in holding with the theme of the TNB.
All Submissions will be property of the Twisted Nether Blogcast, but.. We will give credit to the author, so make sure you give us your info including blog/website if you have one
No copyrighted material. This probably means ingame art too (although we’ll take submissions, they probably won’t win 🙁 )
Prizes will be awarded in a purely subjective manner by Nibuca, Fimlys and possibly Bre..
1st: 60 day WoW card [and your’s will be the art we use for our blizzcon shirts that we will wear there],
2nd and 3rd: Chioce of loot cards that Fim happens to have lying around.. (slashdance, footsteps of illidan, pet biscuit)
Please get the word out about the contest! We want lots of submissions.
We’ll probably pick more than the winner to set up as shirts you can pick up from the shirt store!
Please.. don’t let Nib draw more stick figures. It won’t be pretty.
UPDATE: We have a deadline. Please have your submission (or an email indicating your intent on submitting) in to us no later than July 1st. We need time to judge and get the shirts made prior to Blizzcon.. Thank you!
OH YEAH, specifics. Thanks to Boize for reminding me that you know.. people like details.
- Please save your submission image as a .gif, .png or .jpg.
- We’d prefer if the image was <2MB.
- We’d prefer the “picture” only so that we can use it with several messages.
- Because we will be printing this in a large size we may end up asking for a higher resolution image.
- Send an email to email@example.com with the subject “[TSHIRT CONTEST]”. You may either attach your images directly or include URLs to the images in the email.
If you have any questions or need further clarification please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just a quick clarification: A post entitled ‘bloggitty bloggity snark’ which accidentally appeared on these pages was not intended for publishing here. Please, PLEASE do not be confused and think that that post is at all relevant to TNB, as it is not (it’s more a matter of me being a dork and clicking the wrong blog to publish to). If it appears in your reader, I apologise for any inconvenience. The post has since been deleted. That post most definitely was not ‘allowed’ by Fim and Nib!
Again, apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Yours in all things noob, Saresa.

A wise man once told me, the journey is as important as the destination, if not moreso. Well, it may have not been a wise man, but the advice still stands. Everyone, including your level 80 raiding toon decked out in the phattest of lewtz and your Warlord-title-sporting spike-covered undead rogue, started out the same place as the rest of us: level 1, wearing the wrong type of armor and holding a cruddy weapon. (Unless you’re a death knight…)
The road from 1 to 80 is a long one, and a lot of fond memories can come from that trip from the vanilla WoW lands all the way to the Lich King’s front door. But how best to chronicle it? Some of us start blogs, but if you want to specifically focus on your path, one unique way to do so is with this week’s Wiki Tiki Utility, Path of a Hero!
Path of a Hero is, at first blush, sort of like a blog. You have a journal in which you can keep entries (one is displayed at a time), you can add pictures, and so on. But PotH’s selling point is the timeline. When you make an entry in your journal, you also upload a shot of your character from the login screen. Path of a Hero then adds a snapshot of your armory stats, your Be Imba! gear score, and then arranges all of that into a timeline. The timeline is at the top of every character’s Path of a Hero page, and allows you to use a slider to view your progress from level 1 scrub to level 80 hardcore whatever-you-are. For some examples of good timelines, check out these Paths by Ryomou of The Scryers, Stoneybaby of Muradin, and Gloroth of Khaz’goroth.
If you’re searching for a way to better express your character’s journey and growth, maybe it’s time to take a look at Path of a Hero.
Mondays are Wiki Tiki Utility days here at TNB! Stop from The Stoppable Force highlights a resource from the Twisted Nether Wiki’s Big List of WoW Utilities, hopefully giving you a nice boost to your Intellect – or at least your skill at World of Warcraft. If you’ve got a utility you’d like to see listed on the wiki, or one you’d like to nominate for the Wiki Tiki Utility post, please send an email to stop AT twistednether DOT netwith the subject “Wiki Tiki Utility”!
This week’s Shared Topic is a question which I am sure many WoW players posed by Copra of Bullcopra
Noticed that there was already a nice topic about defining ‘good player’ in WoW. However, now I’m seeing more and more trade channel, general channel and even LFG channel SHOUTS "LF good guild!", and the only thing I can do is I respond to that by "define good guild?".
Haven’t received a single answer, yet. Oh, sorry, the best one was: "to form an arena team".
So, what is a Good Guild from the standpoint of a player looking for guild OR from the standpoint of being in the guild?
A few bloggers have taken the challenge of defining what a ‘Good Guild’ is this week, with some very interesting and varied responses
Pixelated Executioner talks about the best way to find the answer to the question for yourself
T-Sonn at Melted Faces discusses her view of what is a ‘Good Guild’
Misneech at Aggro Junkie comments on how people look for a good guild and how this approach might be changed
Ruby at Rubymelon evaluates the things that are important in a guild and how to work out the value of these for yourself
At Destructive Reach I talk about what a good guild means, and how we identify a good guild.
If you have something to say on the matter, or an idea for a Shared Topic of your own, go to the Blog Azeroth forums and put up your ideas!
