Much like all of you, I am often scouring the interwebs for hunter information and WoW-related snippets. Sometimes I want to see if an obscure fact has already been researched before conducting my own tests, and other times I’m looking for corroborating information, or ideas that I hadn’t thought of to try out.
Holy crap is there a lot of garbage out there!
Pretty much 90% of anything on forums is written by morons. But shockingly some 80% of anything on websites is wrong. The most common reason is that the information is just plain out of date. There are still a lot of facts from BC that are no longer remotely accurate (like auto-shot clipping, 9% hit cap, aimed shot cast time of 3 sec, etc). Sometimes the sites have quit updating but left the info up. Other times it’s blogs and sites that are still updating, but just never went back to correct their old articles.
Well, that ain’t happening here.
After realizing now prevalent this misinformation is, I want to put an additional safeguard in place to let our readers know that our articles are up to date (or warn them when they are not!)
Reviewed and Accurate
When you see this icon at the top of an article, you know that we’ve checked over the information and confirmed that it is still correct and up to date. The date beneath the icon will let you know the last time we reviewed the article. My goal is to do a review of all guides every 3 months.
The idea is that you know that the guides are still accurate. And if for some reason Arust and I are hit by plane or flee the country and quit updating, you’ll see that the articles are old and stale.
Either way, it’s just another benefit of paying yer dues.
Not Everything is Reviewed
Every page you see on the Guides or Gear page will be reviewed regularly for accuracy and updated with new info if needed. The rest of the hundreds of posts on the site are not going to be reviewed :) In the end, if you see the icon, then it is something that is scheduled for review, at least every three months.
