While the /r/WoWEconomy subreddit has been opened for a few months now, I believe I’ve even talked about it on my blog before, Fluxflashor (@Fluxflashor) took to the main /r/WoW subreddit to announce the opening of the subreddit:
Hey guys, gals, goblins, and gnomes!
I’d like to announce the official launch of the /r/woweconomy subreddit. This subreddit was setup to be a neutral ground for players to discuss anything relating to the economy within world of warcraft. Perhaps you are interesting in learning about the inner-workings auction house, learning how to farm more efficiently, or help find out new markets to trek into. We want everyone to come and join us to make the reddit goldmaking community thrive so head on over to woweconomy today and hit the subscribe button so you can enjoy fresh economic discussion with your morning coffee.
We have teamed up with some of the best gold bloggers in the community and they regularly check-in and help out those in need and also post some great content. Top gold bloggers that contribute to the subreddit can be seen with a Gold Coin next to their name. Currently the following bloggers are helping out and we are always on the lookout for more content creators.
- /u/NevAHAddict of Auction House Addict
- /u/AuctionHouseJunkies of Cold’s Gold Factory
- /u/PhatLewtsGold of Phat Lewts’ Gold
- /u/Xsinthis of The Golden Crusade
There are of course a few rules we have setup for woweconomy that everyone is required so we can keep it a nice, clean forum.
- No hacking and botting discussion / links
- No selling of gold or trading gold for irl items
- No self posts that only contain links
Important information for aspiring gold bloggers (Gold Coin Program)
We want to help the gold bloggers grow that help us grow. Although woweconomy is a self.post only subreddit, we do allow content creators who create high quality content to post said content on the subreddit to generate some subreddit discussion. Users that do this are allowed to plug their website / blog post in their self.post at the bottom to let people know you’ve got more content out there. Posts must be original content, rehashes will be removed, abusers will be banned.
If your contributions are of high quality to the gold making community here on reddit, you might just be awarded with some kickass gold coin flair and we’ll plug your site on our sidebar. Please don’t contact us, we will contact you ;) We require all goldcoin redditors to maintain an active presence on the subreddit or you will be removed from the program.
We have an MVP program on /r/wow and this will be extended to /r/woweconomy soon(tm). Redditors who help out the subreddit and don’t have a blog of their own may be chosen to be a part of this program. The subreddit needs to grow more though before we get this started.
Thank you for your interest in /r/woweconomy. Go check it out and hit that subscribe button!
I’ve been using the new subreddit since it’s inception and it’s cool to see how much it’s grown in the three months. I’d definitely recommend checking it out!
