Never miss a great MMO post again!

I’m very pleased to announce a new feature here at the MMO Melting Pot – our new Weekly Digest.

I’m surprised it took me as long as it did to think of this one. Obviously, I check the MMO news every day, for a good long while – but I know that for most people it’s easy to miss a day or a post here and there – and suddenly everyone’s talking about something you didn’t see.

So, we’re now going to round up the week in MMOs every week in an email-based digest form. So, even if you’ve been busy, or you just straight out didn’t see a great post, you’ll be able to see all of the most influential topics and useful posts at the end of the week in one place.

We’ll also be using the Digest to:

  • Summarise the week in MMO news, including smaller bits that you might have missed.
  • Let you know about new MMO Melting Pot guides and features – I know sometimes our guides can be hard to spot.
  • And offer deals and special offers related to MMOs – we’re starting to have developers and publishers contact us about deals for our readers, and this is a great place to put them.

Of course, we’ll not be sharing email addresses with anyone or doing anything else dodgy. I’ve had the same email address for 13 years now, which means over time I’ve come to really, really hate spam.

My card, sirrah – an offer for Blizzcon

I really love it when members of the WoW blogosphere come up with quirky, fun, interesting offers of help or cool stuff. And today, we’ve got a great one.

Rades of Orcish Army Knife isn’t just a WoW lore soothsayer – he’s also a dab hand with the Photoshoppery (or, as it’s referred to at MMOPot Towers, the Potatoshoppery). So, for Blizzcon, he’s decided to help his fellow attendees out in a really neat way – get in contact if you’re going to Blizzcon, and he’ll design you a special Blizzcon business card

They don’t have to have your real name on. He’s not charging at all. And he’ll have a stab at pretty much anything!

Sounds like a great offer. If you take him up on it, let us know what he comes up with in the comments!

Are you Blizzconning? And if so, are you asking Rades for a card?
