Addon Bug Removes DH with Special Letters

ÃⱮßëŗŦħóřʼn is removed from the guild by Geminda
Its been found that an addon bug on Guild Master toons kicks any new Demon Hunters with special letters in their names. It is not known which addon causes the bug, but it is definitely there somewhere in the scripts and the HTML things. Special letters will be removed, we're going to build a wall that keeps those pesky letters out of the guild, mark my words, I'll never let you down.

How is it known that this bug exists? Well, we have our sources, reliable sources, like this article you are reading right now. Some guy recently said "Americans are tired of experts!" He was an expert on how much people are tired of experts. People elsewhere in the world are also probably tired of experts. We're going to make Bloodlust Great again, mark my words, etc etc.

The reason the bug addon exists is because those special letters, the ones you need to make your unique name because you are a special snowflake that can't stick to using the 26 letters of the alphabet the rest of us mere mortals are forced to use, is because they are damn annoying and inconvenient. They are the bane of my administrative existence. Following is a list of things that happen when you have a special letter in your name.

I can't find you in the roster. If you have a special letter your name does not sort in alphabetical order, and in a guild of over 700 toons that makes you hard to find. The worst is when the special letter is the 1st letter, I can not see you there at all. You are hanging out at the end of the list in a special club with all the other special snowflakes. If the 2nd or 3rd letter of your name is special and the 1st letter is very common, its also hard to find you.

I can't send you mail. Sometimes I get lucky and I can type in the 1st few letters and the game suggests a name from the roster, but usually I can't send you a letter.

I can't add you in the calendar. If we have an event in the calendar which is for Raider rank only, and you get promoted to that rank after it has been created, I can't then add your name to the event.

I can't invite your alt if you ask me from battlenet. Yes, I have a big bunch of peeps in my battle tag. Often these people whisper me from battletag for a /ginvite for their alt. I can't simply click their toon name like I can when I am whispered ingame. I have to open up battle tag, look at the name of your new toon and type it in. Some names are onerous, long with wierd spellings that are not easily pronounced. If these names have a special letter in it, I can't invite the alt. Please whisper me from ingame so I can just click you.

Why can't I just memorise the 5 extra digits for each special letter in your special name? You are expecting me to go find out how to write the letter and then add the extra 5 digits and enter them just so. It often doesn't work that easily. I then have to memorise this extra set of digits for your special name. I then also have to do that for every other unique snowflake in the guild with a different special letter. How about you do something for me, and just think of a name for your new toon that doesn't have a special letter in it? That actually sounds easier to me. A letter requires a single keystroke. That is how I type, I shouldn't have to pause and enter 5 more digits to write one single letter. That is horrible.

The reason you want to try and think of a name for your new Demon Hunter without special letters in it is because your GM is a volunteer, largely there to just help organise the funs for a bunch of strangers who are virtual friends that never meet IRL. If your GM asks you for help with something, its probably for a good reason, and will make their job a little easier while they are organising said funs. Please remember the past time is also suppose to be fun for everyone, even for the guild master.

Why are only Demon Hunters being removed by the addon bug? Because now is a new opportunity to avoid the annoying letters on a bunch of alts that are about to be made from scratch. If you find your Demon Hunter removed at level 99 or 100 and you really want it to be in the guild, it won't be too hard to delete and reroll. Now is the time to do this. I'd rather not ask people to spend real money getting name changes, or actually kicking old toons with the special letters. Because I'm actually not that much of a pyscho control freak bitch and won't do that to you, mark my words, I'll never let you down.

Hey, if you get this far and have actually read this, would you mind doing me another favour and adding a comment down below pretty please? Thanks heaps <3 <3 <3

The Prettiest Mount in World of Warcraft?

I just don't understand why there are some people out there that don't agree with me? I mean, come on! Ashes of Al'ar, the mount that drops 0.1% of the time from the last boss in Tempest Keep is the prettiest mount in World of Warcraft by far! I told my guildies so last night, when we decided to skip heroic HFC progression (we didn't get our usual heals online, we are up to 8/13H),  so we decided to get the guild achievement from Heroic Siege of Orgrimar. As it turns out, after spending over an hour in there, we have to do it on Mythic to get the Heroic achievement, d'oh!
The prettiest mount in WoW, by far, Ashes of Al'ar.
So my husband and I have the Legion beta, and someone at Blizzard had an absolute brainwave to decide to let the beta players access to ALL mounts. Yes. Including Ashes! So whenever I am on the beta, I fly my Ashes! So. Pretty. The. End. (lol!)

Pink Swirl Bunny Rug

I have finally gotten around to finishing the pink swirl bunny rug a friend asked me to do for a new baby. Its taken me a couple of months, I found it really hard to pick up. But now I'm really glad its finished! I used 4ply luxury Australian wool from the Bendigo Woollen Mill and a 3.5mm hook, and the result is just over 80cm wide. Yippeee!

Female Orc Hunter Transmorg Sets

Having trouble finding something for your female orc hunter to wear? Here are some outfits I have put together. They are what I call modest and I think they have understated style! Perfect for a fashionable female orc!
trailseeker chest, gloves, belt, shoes, kilt of Pandaren promises, netherstorm shoulderguards
Oversized ogre hauberk, frozen forest kilt, nexus strider mantle, rift stalker guantlets, wild plains belt
Gatekeeper's embrace, netherstorm shoulerguards, gloves of the savage hunt, sovereigns belt
Here is the Bloodlust set, which got the most comments, but a bit too attention seeking for me!

White Female Hunter Transmorg for WoW

I was searching for a white outfit to transmorg onto my alliance female NE hunter, and had trouble finding it. I finally found out that the Impenetrable set is white, but its quite revealing! I was unhappy with her butt cheeks hanging out, so I found another pair of pants that are white, the bonelink pants. I think it looks good!
the Impenetrable set's legguards are a bit revealing ....

The impenetrable set with bonelink legguards looks better!

Little Lavender Sachet, FREE Pattern

I woke early this morning and decided I needed to try making a lavender sachet to include in a woolen bunny rug package. I used the vintage inspired square as an idea, I didn't follow it exactly, just did an eight petal flower then turned it into a square. Then I made another square but this time didn't fasten off, but sc around the edge on three sides of the two squares forming a bag. Then I went around the top in dc, then scalloped the top edge. Finally, I made a chain to weave in between the dc of the second last row to form a drawstring. Yay! A lavender sachet!

Pretty Angel Baby Blankets

I've made some more angel blankets, just following various ideas, not really following any specific patterns. I did a border on one but not exactly happy with it. I think they look better with simple borders. Maybe I will remember that for next time ...
three pretty angel baby blankets ready to be sent off
this one used a 3mm hook and Patons Big Baby 3 ply rainbow and a simple pattern
this one has a fancy border, which might not be as nice as a simple one, this was 3.5mm hook and 4ply yarn

Apricot Angora Shawl

I started making this shawl about 6 to 12 months ago and finally wove in the ends yesterday. Its simply beautiful. I used a 4mm hook and some apricot angora that has a slight soft fuzz to it. I don't know if anyone will ever wear this, I am not a shawl wearing girl myself, but I just made it for fun. Its nice to make beautiful things. I followed a pattern I found on Ravelry.

Pretty Shells Angel Blanket

I just spent the day making this angel baby blanket, I was inspired by a pattern I saw on Ravelry. I didn't follow the pattern but I did use the photo for the idea. This took me about 4 hours to make. I used a 3mm hook and 4ply acrylic yarn, and it turned out to be slightly larger than an A4 piece of paper.

Two Angel Blankets

Happy New Year! I'm so sorry for not posting in nearly 6 months, but I have had a break from my crochet projects while I play World of Warcraft! My guild has turned into a raiding guild, so there is lots to do! But yesterday when checking Facebook I stumbled across a charity that wants angel baby blankets so I thought I'd make a couple and see how they turned out. I made a blue one and a pink with white one.
here are two angel baby blankets I made up quickly, it was fun
the pattern for this Easy Baby Blanket is on ravelry, I used 8ply yarn and a 4mm hook
Myrtle from my craft group taught me this little love hearts blanket pattern, one day I might write it down, I used 4ply yarn and a 3mm hook.
