If you haven’t yet received an email inviting you to the TSM4 beta, then that doesn’t mean you can’t see it in action. There are many people who stream their goldmaking activities, and some of them have beta access. If you don’t have a favorite streamer or community person, we’ve included a list of our affiliates here. Hopefully between them you’ll find someone to your liking!
For those of you who’d prefer to listen to one of TSM’s own team members, Gumdrops regularly streams his goldmaking and answers any questions people have about TSM, including taking a look at new versions of TSM4 as they are released. Be sure to go check out his streams if you’re interested!
If you want to ensure you get into the beta as soon as possible, you can go ahead and sign up for an invite here. If you like what we do and want to support the continued development of TradeSkillMaster and also get priority access to all of our betas, please consider becoming a TSM Premium user.
The TSM Team will attend Blizzcon this year! We’re thrilled to be going, and can’t wait to meet everyone. While some TSM Team members have met each other in person, this will be the first time most of the team will be in one place. We are also extremely excited to meet all of you and talk shop about all things TSM and WoW gold making! Read on to learn more about what we’ll be doing during Blizzcon and where you can meet up with us in person or online.
On November 2nd, at 11AM PDT, the TSM team will be doing a live Q&A stream from Anaheim, California, and you’re invited to tune in to learn more about TSM4, hear about TSM from the team who makes it happen, and get your questions answered. Gumdrops, our Support Manager & User Evangelist, has been so kind to allow us to use his Twitch channel for this Q&A stream, so be sure to tune in!
Talk to us in Person
For those of you lucky enough to have secured a Blizzcon ticket of your own, we invite you to seek us out during the convention days. Please don’t be shy to say hi if you see us walking around the convention hall. We’re very anxious to hear what you think about TSM and the state of gold-making in WoW. You’ll be able to recognize us by the special TSM Team shirts we’ll be wearing. You can expect a picture of all of us in our shirts to be posted on our Twitter soon!
Something for You
At Blizzcon, we’ll have some awesome goodies to hand out. One of them is a very cool TSM sticker, which you’ll be able to stick on your phone, laptop or anywhere else you want to show off your gold-making prowess! Secondly, we’ll have our own spin on Cards of Omen. These are custom printed cards with a very cool TSM-based design. The backside will hold a code for at least one month of premium, but it could be much more!
We’re incredibly hyped to be attending Blizzcon as a team this year and get to meet as many of you in person as possible. We hope you’ll say hi during Blizzcon, either in person or at home during our Q&A stream.
Our blog has been up a little while now, and as planned it’s here to stay. We felt it would be the right thing to do to tell you a little more about why we stopped with the newsletter. And why we chose to present you our news through a blog instead.
What started the newsletter
The TSM Newsletter was intended as a medium for communication and engagement. We needed a way to reach out to our users in our own way, with our own words. That’s exactly what the newsletter was. A way for us to tell you what was happening, no matter if it was about TSM, or something else in the goldmaking community.
Why we’re choosing a blog now
But as with all things, improvement is always possible. Over time, we learned that a monthly newsletter has its constraints. News is quickly old if covered somewhere else, and there wasn’t much TSM specific news that fitted a monthly newsletter setup.
For a while, newsletter became a chore to make, rather than an outlet for us. Don’t misunderstand; it was still fun. It just didn’t feel like we were doing what we set out to do. We came to realize that for what we had in mind, we needed something less strictly scheduled, something like a blog.
The blog will allow us to send out information and interesting stuff the moment we have it, rather than having to wait for the next ‘scheduled moment’. It will allow us even more freedom with the topics we choose, because there will be categories. You can find the news you find interesting, while easily skimming over others that don’t quite tickle your fancy.
Where to find old newsletters
Sometimes it can be fun to read something old. To remember how things were, or a funny thing that happened way back. We’ve always kept the newsletters text somewhere, because of those very reasons. We’ve collected them all and set up this page for you, where you can find links to all of our old newsletters.
Greetings to you all!
We’d hereby like to welcome you to our brand-new blog! We hope you’re pleasantly surprised by this sudden new part of our website!
At the start of 2016, we started with the TSM Newsletter. There were a lot of things we wanted to talk about. We felt that by setting something new, we would create better community engagement. We would be able to tell you exactly what we wanted.
Since then we’ve sent a newsletter every month. It’s been a blast to see so many of you sign up. Watching your opens and clicks gave us a lot of insight into what’s interesting.
Recently we’ve been looking how we can improve all this. We want to bring you news quicker, and on a wider variety of topics. At the same time we don’t want to bury you under content that doesn’t interest you.
That’s why we’ve set up this blog. We’ll let you know about developments as they happen. We’ll give you a wider variety of topics, while also making TSM news easier to find.
The blog is very new, and we’re going to be trying our best to get everything right. But please bear in mind that we might need to change a thing or two in the future. We’d like the blog to be an interesting place. Both for us, and for you.
Please let us know what you think!
