Starting now we are beginning to upgrade the website to its new system, and begin migration of the database.
To prevent data loss, user login and registration has been disabled for the time being.
We do not expect to experience any data loss, however, users will most likely have to re upload avatars / pick which WoW character they would like to use as their avatar.
For those of you who have won raffles, chosen codes will be unavailable for a short period of time.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
It appears that a issue is effecting a number of users where they are unable to link their WoW characters to thier account.
This appears to be related to WoW characters not updating on the WoW Armory after a character has logged out of the game. This appears to be effecting a number of realms, but not all realms.
We will keep you updated on any advancements or updates.
we will be updating the site over the next few days. this will be a major overhaul. as such, we will need to shutdown all new accounts, toon registration, and raffle ticket generation.
since this will obviously impact the current 14 day raffle, we will cut it short and will be changing the drawing date from 28July to this monday, 21July.
see more on the main thread ( here
We had such a great response with the last round of raffles, we're doing it again. Pets, helms and mounts are all on the table. You can enter up to 20 tickets for the 7-day raffle and 30 tickets for the 14-day raffle.
We're hoping to build the interest high enough to support a 30-day raffle... which will be for cool gamer hardware such as video cards, mechanical keyboards and what not... and i have a *really* cool possibility for the 'what not'... but we need more people in the raffles before i get too crazy.
Remember, more tickets means better odds of winning. Last week, the 14-day raffle had an average of 2.9 tickets per person.

We're going to kick the raffles to the next level this week by running two raffles at once. A 7-day raffle and a 14-day raffle. 7-day raffles are for pets and helms while the 14-day raffles are for mounts. Mounts are a bit pricey, so I've also kicked up the minimum participation requirement. Also, since it's a 14-day raffle, you'll be able to put in a max of 35 tickets, thereby increasing your odds of winning a prize.
We're hoping to build the interest high enough to support a 30-day raffle... which will be for cool gamer hardware such as video cards, mechanical keyboards and what not.
