Made by……

I wonder If changing your name changes “Created by” – on items that your character made before the name change”  Or if you leave the server anything you created loses it’s label.

I did find that when I changed servers I lost the “Created by” on some of my bank bags that other people had made.  The label must have been cut off in the transfer.   I could be mistaken for having a cheap knock off.  How tragic!

On my home server I once had a random whisper from someone telling me that I had made all their bags.
Not sure what they hoped to achieve from that conversation, It not like I’m an exclusive Label…

Zahrah ( at the time)  maker of fine Netherweave bags – a stitch of shadowy love and angst into every bag.

I did find that once that I had in my possession a bag that my GM had made when they leveled tailoring  yonks earlier.   There was a piece of their brief stint into tailoring left behind as legacy.

I inspected a player the other day on Dath – and he was wearing bracers made by an old guildy of mine,  and I chuckled to myself.   That they had left little pieces of themselves all over the server,  and while they may not see further progression  the bracers they made probably would.

Instead of Autographs maybe the top ranked guilds could make  stuff and sell them.   Have a piece of gear / a shirt made by * insert random wow hero*

Or a sponsored event

“Support my Epic mount”   by a shirt for a shirt slot from me.  Or save the Orphans of stormwind  buy a tshirt.

We could train sales people to wander the streets of Dalaran,    ” Tshirts for sale.  Pirate shirts for sale.   Every design available.  Pst now!”

Or I could roll a toon called TshirtVendor and stand in the middle of  the city selling shirts.

And thats my silly post for the day..

It’s Friday afternoon.  I am looking forward to a nice cold beer. It’s hot in Sydney at the moment,  so all of you who are currently experiencing what seems to be dubbed the Snowmageddon on the other side of the world.  I’ll give you some of our heat,  and you can throw us Aussies some snow..

    What about an expat Aussie who has been experiencing snowmageddon for about three months now? I could do with some of that heat I tell you.

    What if know about the technical matter:
    – If you change server, all “created by” tags are lost.
    – If the creator changes server, his tags are removed from your stuff.
    – Same applies to faction change.
    – If he ever comes back (like my friend who made me a shirt, transferred away then transferred back later on), nothing would change, once the label is removed, the data is lost forever.
    – If you simple namechange, the name gets updated to the new version everywhere.

    Friday afternoon? It’s Friday morning for me on the US West Coast.

    I’d like to set up lemonade stands all over the world. Questing in Hinterlands (for some reason)? BAM! You’ve got a beverage stand ready to serve you powerful drinks, potions and elixers. Have them last only a few hours, then you’ll have to re-establish them. But it would be cool to watch money flow in from some random Troll Rogue in the middle of the Barrens.

    I like that the made by tag personalizes things…. in a bad way or a good way. I discovered once that one of the bags I had in my bag was made by an old guildie who ended up being a sneaky asshat. I had to go buy another new bag because I could not continue using that bag with that made by name.

    But in a good way, I had one of those old swiss army knives made by an engineer that I carry around with me in my bags, though I don’t really need it anymore. I do so because it was made by the first person I ever whispered or partied with in game, someone who ended up being a good friend of mine. He’s taken a 6 month break from the game right now, but seeing that knife reminds me of our friendship. 🙂
