Real Names on Official Forums? No More!

After what has undoubtedly been a very controversial few days for Blizzard, Friday brought the news that their proposed new forum system featuring real names for all posters has been withdrawn.

Regardless of what side of the debate you sat on, it has been the topic of choice for most players, forum discussions and blogs. It’s definitely good news for all those players wishing to keep details of their gender and ethnicity private and more over, it’s reassuring to have a very direct example of Blizzard listening and acting upon the voice of their community.

    I am glad to hear it, and I would consider it a victory for the blogging community. The reason is that I for one don’t pay much attention to the official forums, and I wouldn’t have heard of this had it not been for the WoW blogs I read. I think it would have been a significant mistake to have gone through with this change.

    Thanks for the great blog!
