Reading Mr. ‘short britches’ BRK today, and laughing.
First, allow me to say, I agree wholeheartedly.
If you seriously get a legendary Bow to drop, or hell, a hunka nice super-sweet ranged epic weapon like the Sunfury Bow of the Phoenix or the Wolfslayer Sniper Rifle or something…
For the love of the WoW gods of loot fairness, if you have a Hunter in the group, let the Hunter have first chance!
No other class is as DEFINED as the Hunter by a single piece of loot.
I don’t mean other classes don’t depend on weapons as much, I mean that few other classes get judged by a single piece of gear like Hunters do.
You see almost any other class, and you will do a general /inspect to check them out.
You look at a Rogue, and granted, you check their weapons out first, but then you want to see what they’re packing to back those bad boys up.
But a Hunter runs by, and admit it… you’re checking out the long gun. You want to see what they’re using to bring home the bang-bang.
Come on, folks. The ranged weapon drops, you give the Hunter first shot. Period. End of story. I don’t even want to hear it. I don’t CARE if the Fury Warrior could use it to pull and hasn’t had a drop in two months, you offer it to the Hunter first.
Okay. *breathes deep*
Now, on that post BRK gives a lot of advice. And if you look close, you may notice that he gave this bit of advice to bloggers as number 3;
3. Make moar white space. Massive chunks of text turn people off, totally. Break up those paragraphs, people!
Hey, I resemble that remark!
The thing is, he’s absolutely right.
Yes, yes, I know, my site is 99% massive chunks of text.
That doesn’t change the fact that he’s right. Don’t do as I do, do as he says, break it up, make it attractive, please the eye with nice layouts and pictures and designs.
Both of those sites have awesome, informative posts, but they also break things up with attractive formatting and images that are relevant to the subject… and are cute, too.
Me, I do it this way because I screwed myself with my theme.
I CANNOT get images in this theme to play well or do ANYTHING I tell them to. I cannot get them to align right, align left, wrap text properly, space where I put them, put text above or below or in any way do what I tell them. NOTHING.
When I add images, they go to the left and text wraps, PERIOD. Even if I put breaks, line spaces, it doesn’t matter. It’s like, built into the damn theme to take my power away.
When I really need an image, I work the sizes over and over until I can get them so the text ends up below. But if you look through my imported archive of back posts from the old blog website, you’ll see my pretty picture formatting got turned into crap, and it’s enough to make me cry, ’cause I can’t fix it.
So… no pictures, except when necessary. No neat formatting. No pretty playful pictures woven into my posts.
It sucks. I WANT to do better, I just can’t get it to work.
So follow the advice of the BRK. If you have the ability to break up your text with images, colorful or fancy text, moving text around and making things flow in interesting ways…
Oh, and since I said nice things about BRK… foshizzle… I have to add something Erthshade pointed out to me… the natural result of any Bear/Hunter altercation…
