Christmas In July Contest Update and Other Site News

Blizzard decided to give us an October present by giving us the release date for Cataclysm.  This means that we have two thirds of our contest set for the Christmas in July contest.  We still need the date for 4.0 to find out the true winner, but here is what we know so far.

Date the Cataclysm Release Date is announced:  10/4/10
Date 4.0 is released:  ????????
Cataclysm Release Date: 12/7/10

When Blizzard sets a date, it is usually set in stone so I'm not anticipating a change.  Assuming the date is correct, here are the winners for the two of the questions that we have an answer for. (Listing first, second, and third place)

Cataclysm Release Date Announced: 
  1. Loganw (guess was 9/23/10) 
  2. Daniel (guess was 9/20/10) 
  3. Maria (guess was 8/31/10)

Cataclysm Release Date:
  1. Alero (guess was 12/1/10)
  2. Daniel (guess was 11/30/10)
  3. Superia (guess was 11/23/10)
Now if you are wondering why you are not the closest, remember the rules stated the closest without going over wins first place for the question.  Now, we are just waiting for the release of 4.0 to determine the winner.  If it is a three way tie for first place, we will go to who was closest by the number of cumulative days on all three of their guesses.

Also, just a reminder that I will be on the next Raid Warning round table: Shift Happens.  You will find a link on the upper right hand side of the blog.  I would encourage you to go back and listen to the other Raid Warning round tables as well as head over to Epic Advice and ask some balance druid questions you want answered on the podcast.

Finally, thank you for continuing to help grow the site.  We have now reached over 100 posts, have had over 5,000 visits, and am quickly approaching 10,000 page views.  I could never have imagined in the few short months I have been doing this that it would hit this kind of level, so that you for your continued support of this blog as we now move forward to Cataclysm.
