The title is a little misleading. I'm not looking for a girlfriend (although I never say never... call me?). Despite the fact that I'm not looking for a partner some people are and what better way to do that than through a social networking site or more specifically, a dating site? What about a dating site pitched solely at, you guessed it, World of Warcraft players?
Some enterprising individuals have decided that the near 10,000,000 people playing World of Warcraft need a dating site so that they can meet like-minded people from the comfort of their own... realm. The site, aptly named World of Datecraft, went live recently and has garnered a lot of media attention.
Datecraft works like most other networking sites but has a twist - it's dedicated to WoW players. Simply head to Datecraft and fill out the information they ask for, such as questions about your lifestyle, hobbies and other info that people need when doing this e-dating thing and sit back and wait for the /w's to start rolling in. You can even broadcast what type of guy/girl you are looking for.
Hurray! (And YES, many of the first users were "dummy" for testing purposes. Model Shots. Check...)
After more than a week of solid designing, coding, tweaking, and not sleeping, we're finally ready to open the doors for Beta Testers!
We're excited you're here and we hope that this site can be a fun-filled time-bandit for you!
We'd love your feedback and to hear your thoughts! We've go some space at the Forums to discuss, so head over there and hook us up with your suggestions, etc.
Also, please be aware that we've also have a Contest as well! Check it out Here for more details.
Finally, have fun and Tell Others!
World of Datecraft is an interesting idea for an interesting bunch of people - the WoW player base. Whether the idea will take off? Time will tell.
