Gee thanks Blizzard, a massive forum overhaul system that's totally not going to be abused.

Just in time for my birthday tomorrow!

(oh yeah 11700th post, I wonder what trust level i'll get with this)
Well, there I go with never being able to get level trust 3 because I got suspended once for two weeks for using a rather homophobic word.
How am I gonna live without being able to post funny cat gifs on the forums.
I've got to be a really good kid so I can post Fortnite dances in place of rebuttals.
So about a month back I contacted an artist, who then promptly decided to ghost me after accepting payment. A bit annoying, I thought. I'll wait a while before doing a charge back, maybe they're dealing with real life issues?

Regardless I went on to commission another artist in the meantime. Also Acrona drew the character for free because I've had fun RPing with her for a while now.

Literally just now the previous ghost artist contacted me again and dropped some pretty cool progress pics.

My peeve? I now have infinity !@#$ing bajillion pieces of art of the same character coming in and I'm starting to wonder if I have an issue. My wallet might protest soon.

That sound like the opposite of a problem.

I got suspended once


Me too, but for calling a certain AD troll an attention parasite/cancer.

Current peeve, slow rep gains. I think they should make elite quests give 150 rep or something more substantial.
"Users at level 2 can..."
"Have an increased "like" count."

Excuse me what the frick

Also, peeve:
Because i don't want to waste 100k gold (im cheap), I can't transmog out in the wild during questing. >:(
This new forum thing is reminding me of this...

I've been suspended twice and one time was pretty much the same, except I just called him out for being a dick and voila, ban! Totes worth it though. The other time was a typo in a swear and they were like ERMGERD VOIDING LANGUAGE FILTER. But that got revoked when they realised how dumb it was.
So we have to start foruming from scratch?

I've mentioned it already elsewhere but its a very worryingly authoritarian turn Blizzard has taken recently.

I wonder who's the Grima Wormtongue whispering into the ears of the senior management all these frankly awful choices they've made within the last year or so.

This almost sounds dystopian... then again, corporations abusing the internet and corrupting every single part of it is nothing new. I'm just glad I got to experience the golden age of the internet.
D'you remember when Blizz had the great idea to innovate the forums by tieing them to your real name?

Speak not of those dark times. Worse ideas might form in their mid- oh wait.

Yep, quite vividly.

I'm hoping something happens that will make them retract this too.
I am so happy they're letting us use emojis in our posts now. I am going to use the :wolf: emoji so much. It's going to be :ok_hand: :weary: :joy: :100: :triumph: the best, guys!
My peeve is that I have no idea what is going on with this forum stuff now, can someone link me something on discord or drop a link below, I will be in eternal thanks.
Trust level 1 seems a move to crack down on bots but shutting a lot of people out from posting images, forever unable to be level 3 is absurd.

Once, in a heated moment, I used an unflattering turn of phrase to describe blizzard's business practices so I for one can never be level 3.

I'm sure the flagging system will never be abused by damaged people to hurt forum "rivals". Do the people running the site not internet at all?
