    I hope I'm not the only one to realize this, but the Cataclysm portal of Wowpedia is really outdated...at least on the Hunter page. A lot of the ability tooltips are either from like when they were first announced, or they're just plain out wrong.

    Also, new loot = wantttttt

    Really sucks that they will be removing insane in the membrane, well some of the factions anyway so it no longer is completable.
    I am missing ravenholdt and darkmoon faire (both honored), and I am trying to get it done before cataclysm. I didnt really stress with it before, but now I will, who knows if they will just say screw it and remove all the reputations related to it.

    More importantly, almost every single active contributor from WoWWiki has moved to Wowpedia, anyway.

    WoWWiki used to be independantly hosted, but moved to Wikia a few years ago, and in the process they gave ownership of the domain name to Wikia. Now Wikia is forcing changes that the creators and contributors of WoWWiki disagree with, so the community decided to find a new host, but Wikia refused to return / sell back the old WoWWiki.com domain. So they renamed it Wowpedia.org, which was decided to be the best available domain name.


    To put it more simply, WoWWiki is simply changing hosts from Wikia to Curse. They only changed the name because Wikia refused to sell them back the WoWWiki.com domain name.

    Because Wikia, the host of WoWWiki, is forcing a new layout, new ads, blogs, mergers, and a variety of other changes that break many WoWWiki article layouts and in general muck everything up.

    In the coming weeks, you will no doubt see many wikia-hosted wikis move to other websites, because nobody is happy about the changes and the Wikia staff refuse to listen to feedback.

    Except without annoying ads EVERYWHERE.

    WoWWiki's ads were so bad they'd be in the middle of the content, screwing up the page layout.

    I can't believe there are still peeps that use the Internet w/o an adblocker of some kind.
    I couldn't imagine the web without Opera + Fanboys List.

    See, this is why I nicknamed this "Suckin' Temple". 'Cause it does. I've been doing this instance for years. There really has never been anything fun about it. Especially down in the basement, where you have to summon the boss by fighting trash and clicking on statues in the right order. =P I still completely fail to see where "long, boring and frustrating" equals "epic" or "fun".

    I applaud these new changes!

    Until you start donating large sums of money to the people that are gracious enough to provide these websites, deal with ads. A lot of you have literally no idea the work involved in maintaining these sites, and how much it costs to run a webserver with the traffic and bandwidth curse sites bring in. These are professional sites, not "I've used Dreamweaver once, here let me use a table for layout elements and design you a shitty site from my 15 year old animated gif library" sites that someone does as a hobby. These sites are jobs. Wiki sites are maintained by a bunch of contributors, but even so they're not small time websites to maintain.

    Stop complaining about ads, because without them you wouldn't have these hugely popular and informative sites you like so much. Because the vast majority of the sites users will not donate to help, so ads are necessary.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age"

    So you feel it would be a good thing for the publishers and paid administrators of this site to lose their jobs? I can understand an aversion to advertising, but not realising its necessity in allowing quality free content and entertainment, such as this site, is a tad naive.

    In that video of Onyxia/Nefarian that song reminds me of a song Yakooki used for his Curse vs Blackwinglair movie epic moments <3

    Still not finding the 4.01a patch notes. Also, I applaud bliss on cutting the fat out of these old instances. No, spending 1 1/2 to 2 hours in ST was not fun. For every 1 person that enjoyed that crap, you would find 10 that didn't.

    And in the worst case scenario where sites like MMO-Champ simply disappear because they can't fund themselves? Don't get me wrong, I use ad-block, but my policy is that I don't block the ads on a page unless or until they become excessive or obnoxious. I come to MMO-champ everyday(ish) and consume the results of Boub's hard work, why wouldn't I want to see him get paid for it?

    Wowwiki is very useful and informative. I hope everything works out with the move.
    It's not the skin (although it is butt ugly). It the way the skin was implemented. Wikia one day randomly decided to make this new skin mandatory on ALL of their wikis, not just WoWWiki, and deleted and/or ignored the overwhelming negative feedback it had gotten (including several reports of the skin causing eyestrain and migranes) and decided to shove it down the throats of all of their wikis. Claiming it would be too expensive to maintain two skins, Wikia is getting rid of the option to use Monaco (the former default skin) on November 3rd, making this eyesore of a skin mandatory for people using the site. Several wikis, not just WoWWiki, left over Wikia's disregard to their community. However, because WoWWiki is Wikia's cash cow, Wikia attempted to bribe them by offering them (and ONLY them) an increase on the skin size. Didn't work.

    tl;dr Wikia are acting like shitbags, WoWWiki moved because of it.

    Hmmm, Ive been using the internet for 15 years, I cant recall ever clicking on an ad, ever, anywhere.... so im not really sure how much advertising revenue I was generating in the first place.

    Actually, both, the bottom (area with the snake statue puzzle) and the top (area with the trolls blocking access to Jammal'an the Prophet) are gone. Now you get the middle portion with the big bosses like Hakkar, Enarkus and Jammal'an
