Cartoons are a staple of every kid's childhood. They teach kids about heroes. They also provide positive messages of good verses evil in many of the episodes.

I recently wrote an article on rules for community tournaments. Those rules covered the game settings and specifics. I wanted to post a sample of a terms of rules for entry agreement for entry into these events. These rules can be used for anything if you tailor them correctly. I used a short version because I wasn’t running a sweepstakes, the tournaments and contests were primary based on skill.

I would like to make it clear, I am not a lawyer by any means. So please use caution and do your research or contact a lawyer if you use anything in this post. However, I was given this to me by a lawyer years ago.

Back in 1999, I launched the first Tribes 1 tournaments. Some of these tournaments were major tournaments and regular tournaments. I thought I would share the graphics and prize listings to show you the tournaments from back then. You can compare the times.

The day is finally here. The day fans were all waiting for since Blizzard announced the dates for Blizzcon. It doesn’t matter if you tried to purchase tickets online and couldn’t. It also doesn’t matter what order you like Warcraft, Starcraft, or Diablo. At 11 am PST, some major announcements will be made, sending excitement tingling through all of the Blizzard's Fans. Today already feels like Christmas to the entire Blizzard Fan base. The excitement, rumor and anticipation of what Mike Morhaime will/may be announcing is spreading like wildfires. I purchased the virtual ticket. I will be able to view all the panels on my PC. I have a freezer stocked with pizza and Pepsi stocked in the fridge. I declare myself ready to battle. I will take bathroom breaks and get my food between panels. I will be watching all the panels on Warcraft and Starcraft first. I will also be watching...

I have been wondering what does it take to get my blog content shared by my visitors on my blog.  I started my new blog a few months ago. Since then I’ve tried to stick to a strict schedule  and stay on a good array of topics under specific categories.  I am also trying to post compelling articles on my own experiences and opinions without turning it into a research term paper.  Not that a good researched article isn’t welcome from time to time.

I am a former community owner that specialized in clan gaming and the services around them.  I am have so many experiences that I could fill a book with them. It just takes time for me to remember and put those experiences on paper.  

I try to keep to an article schedule of four per week. Articles are posted Tuesday thru Friday.  I decide the topics from a short list of ideas that I think would be cool to write about....

Blizzard Entertainment is hosting Blizzcon this weekend in Anaheim, California. Fans from all over the world will make their annual pilgrimage to the convention center for the exceptional experience of celebrating Blizzard's games.  I have previously attended all of the Blizzcon’s except for the first one.  Blizzard knows how to put on a great show for the fans and provides a great swag bag for attendees.

 So here are few tips what to expect on your trip.  

On the day before your trip, it’s best to pick up your badges and swag bag on Thursday night 30 minutes before it closes or early Friday morning.  You should be able to walk in without a hassle of a long line. Make sure to bring your paperwork and ID.  Make sure you receive your pet key card.  My first year, the volunteer forgot to give me mine and I had no idea. The problem was fixed by the lovely Blizzard...

Achievements are one of the special awards and accolades players and teams covet. They allow the winners to talk smack, brag, and show off their awards online. I created my achievement system in 1998 while I was a volunteer for Microsoft on the Internet Gaming Zone. I was the youngest and first ever host for retail tournaments in Microsoft's history. I was the host of the Clan World Tournament (CWT). I had to find a way to provide a meaningful prize to the winners that wasn’t considered tangible or have value. I found the solution in a leader board that gave points to the winners and a custom graphic representation of a trophy. The trophy and leadership achievement system provided an addicting experience. Players and clans wanted to win badly. They wanted the trophy and the points on the leader board. If you click the the Jedi Knight Trophy link....

Earlier this week, Blizzard introduced us to a pet guardian cub coming to the Blizzard Store near you. This pet costs the same as all the other pets, except it has one unique feature. It is limited to a one time use and it is Bind on Equip (BoE). Unlike the other pets in the store, this pet companion can be sold for gold or traded in game.

At first, I was against this idea because it might be a step closer introducing Real Money Trading (RMT) into the World of Warcraft. However, this isn't RMT, but I do have some valid concerns and issues.

This guardian cub is being placed in our inventory by the Blizzard Store instead of entering a loot code. We can determine the destiny and future of the guardian pet once purchased. You can expect to get this item one of 3 ways: buying/trading for it, Buying it at the store, or getting it as a gift.

In this article, I will...

I participated in a weekly twitter #cmgrchat yesterday. The topic covered contests for communities. I brought up how other people use twitter for contests using Twitter and specifically ReTweets. I must of hit an inner rage button and rightfully so. I was messaged with negative responses. Most people don’t like contests that don’t have a real chance in winning or just continue spam your time lines or hash tags with fake advertising without mercy. I am not sure of the metrics that show users gains or lost for using any of these methods. This is just my thoughts.

Here is a few twitter contests that I dislike the most.

1) The contest where you have to be the 100th re tweeter to win something. While I'm not against the idea if its a very short number, but come on the 100th? You could be waiting a week if the community is slow and inactive and if its active and fast...
