Everybody, please join us in welcoming our newest addition to the community team: Salthem!

Salthem has worked for Blizzard for more than two years, and joins us from the Technical Support department. We're looking forward to having him work side by side with us spreading blue love, and a little gentle guidance, to the World of Warcraft community. You'll be seeing him around. :)

So give him a hearty welcome!

A pointless idea because you lose by default.... just like last time matey!

Fact: The definition of Gnorog is fail = Gnorog cannot win no matter how hard he tries!!!

Hi Everyone!

Like Thundgot said i've been playing WoW and working in Blizzard for a few years now and i'm really looking forward to working with all of you on the forums.

I'm pretty bowled over by the welcome :)

Right now my Avatar is still in the works, so i guess we'll keep that a secret for the moment.

Your fellow furbolgs were trying to comfort you and to cheer you up after your humiliating defeat... I even saw some of your fellow furballs laughing at you behind your back (Yeah that's right... I said it)

Q u o t e:
So they do not not apply to Blizzard posters, then why should normal people bother following them when the "blues" doesn't?

Relax. Take a deep breath. I think we can handle one thread with a little silliness when a new blue poster joins the forums.

Q u o t e:

Salthem, what is the philosophical difference between this forum's Paradigm and it's Guidelines. You have 15 minutes to answer


Well this is already too late so i will take my time over the response, I believe Anvilbeard of all people should understand that forums do not lend themselves to time-limited responses.

Anyway, some definitions:

Paradigm: A set of assumptions, concepts, values, and practices that constitutes a way of viewing reality for the community that shares them, especially in an intellectual discipline.

The Guidelines you refer to could mean either of these:

http://forums.wow-europe.com/thread.html?topicId=10701098&sid=1
http://forums.wow-europe.com/thread.html?topicId=292921554&sid=1

So I'll take both.

With these definitions the Paradigm is the way the community at large view the 'reality' of the forum, the guidelines are our way of attempting to shape that reality, or if not the reality, atleast the view.

How did I do?

Edit:
Q u o t e:
Okay, that was mean.


On my first day, yes it was :)

I wonder if Salthem feels promoted or demoted moving from tech support with all the new trolls he/she has to moderate :)


It's a brave new world, but overall this definately feels like a change for the better for me (no offence intended to my tech gnome buddies).

Q u o t e:
Welcome Salthem!

Did you know the real reason Crezax stopped being a CM was because he was never properly greeted by Wormsborough? I bet you didn't.

Also, I say Mr. Wiggles. The name sounds like Salt Ham.

Neither was I. I have just heard endless stories of the greatness of Wormsborough, but never seen you post. You have lots to live up to, my dear gnome. Don't make me disappointed.
