About GotWarcraft, Contact, and Policies
So who is GotWarcraft?
Just a personal project. Started by the young’un and handed over to me.
You may have noticed that there are two distinct versions of this site. The old site has been around since WoW was in beta and is just a basic site. The new version is built around WordPress (this page, for example) and we’ve moved most all of the old stuff to the WordPress install. WP offers a lot of advantages, one of which is that anyone else writing for the site does not need to have DreamWeaver or some other website builder software.
Interested in writing something for this site? The contact info is below.
