Guild Ox overstepping?


Hey folks,

I don’t usually post outside of Sundays, but I came across something I found of interest today. If you don’t follow WoW Insider, you may have missed this.. Guild Ox has implemented an alt search through their site. What this means is that anyone can search just one of your character names, and it will produce a list of your alts too. It’s true that this might help guilds with their selection of new recruits, but honestly I see far too many con’s to this.

My toons are my toons, I choose who I put on my Real ID because I trust those people to know my alts. No one else needs to know that information. If someone were harassing me, would I want them to be able to do so no matter who I was on? Do I want to be judged because of what I may, or may not have done on my other toons?

Anyway /end rant.

According to WoW Insider, and Guild Ox, this feature can be disabled. Hit escape, go into interface, then display and then check “display only character achievements to others”.
