Cross-posting from the TNG:
I think we should at least try to decide if this is going Alliance-only. I know that Horde folks can't join the channel from a horde toon, but there's nothing to say they couldn't join the channel to RP from an ally alt as
their horde toon. If the setting is firmly in Alliance territory, then it may be fair to assume that "No Hordz Alloud". And I agree that the correlated physical location is important as well. People like to have places they can dress-up and GO to and see/be seen. I've seen several suggestions (including my own) and there are no changes to the poll, so I'm not sure whether that will be updated or not. Taverns on the whole are easier, because they are often near flight points and similar things, so that people are not as limited in going to the physical site based on their level etc. I'll throw in Shattrath as another option, because Warlords.
Also, sorting the name out sooner than later is better. The longer people use /join Hearthstone, the harder it will be to change it. (And if that's the plan, then I'm on to you.
) If the Hearthstone guild people want to step forward and offer an opinion officially, I encourage them to do so. They are easy enough to get in touch with if they're not already reading these posts. I, for one, am reluctant to accept silence as consent. So if it will make things cleaner, I can contact them and see if they will let us know what they prefer.
