Elitism on the PTR


imo, blizzard needs better requirements for people who use the PTR. for example a max level char. <long paragraph basically saying Blizzard should require people have a Level 80 on any realm before they can get on the PTR>
*face palm*

And my reply to him :


You've just excluded 50 % of all the addon authors including many of the major addon authors who don't have a max level toon on any realm.

Some of them don't even have a toon past Level 1.

Let's see now .... Caireen of ... doesn't have a max level toon ..... Kaelten .... no max level toon .... CK Knight (author of Cart as well as a ton of other addons) .... nope don't think so ... Shirik (author of wowinterface's addon client) .... Nope no time....

A max level toon is not needed for serious addon development nor is it needed to provide decent feedback. With this requirement you will prevent many of the major addon authors in the community from being able to install the PTR to test their addons prior to a patch coming out.

In fact Boubielle of doesn't have a max level toon I don't think. If i recall correctly there was an interview where he said he didn't have an 80 and had stopped actively playing a while ago.

That's a a major source of information you've just excluded right there.
Can someone here check my facts ? I don't honestly remember if Shirik had a max level toon but I know our illustrious admin doesn't. And erm Cairreen I've probably misspelled you name like I do all the time.

Truthfully, any facet of the game you will find elitism, I mean case in point, Random Wow post about getting ganked 101:OP=WOWYOUREAJERKGANKNIGMYlvl51
Response 1-Lawl nice arena ratings bro
Same goes with raiding
Random Wow Post about getting a server first
OP=We killed 25m(insert terrible and hopelessly broken or easy boss here)
Response 1-Oh Man, awesome now you're GM is a lootwhore drama queen who faps to goats in wizard costumes
Response 2-lawl Nice arena ratings bro.

And the list goes on, truthfully, I feel there should be a limit, not based on level though. Purely because of what you said, we wouldn't have these wonderful addon Gods like Tekkub or Haste getting our UI necessities ready by patch day if they didn't have PTR to test their amazing addons. The limit should be applied in another way though, and that will be the quest that we should go on!

Does blizz plan to limit access ? No ? It's not worth to fire discussions
like this with more fuel ... no matter if your "facts" are right or not.

I think Blue is on a campaign to make people not be stupid.

Ultimately, though, I hope he knows he will fail.

Any attempt to make people not be stupid is doomed to failure.

In the words of Albert Einstein, "Only two things are infinite: the Universe, and human stupidity. And I'm not sure about the first one."

Sadly yes.

Not matter how many times I point out that your level your posting character is at matters not a whit towards how worthy your post people still believe that delusion.

I was mostly seeking confirmation on the level of toons forum regulars/major addon authors have here.

I finally got my mage to 80 about a month or so ago.
