Thank you, WoW Armory, thank you so much.

When one is taking a break from the game, and is an officer in a guild, and has thousands of gold on his toons, and has an RSS link to his armory profiles because he is a vain motherfSHUTYOMOUTH, then this is exactly the sort of thing he doesn't wan to see after a week and a day of not playing:
Grimmtooth@Alleria: There are no entries that match the filter parameters.

Well, what does that mean?


Let's go look at my armory profile.

File Not Found

This character profile could not be displayed, possibly for one of the following reasons:

  • The character has been inactive for an extended period of time.
  • The character name was spelled incorrectly.
  • The profile is temporarily unavailable while the character is in the midst of a process such as a realm transfer or faction change.
  • Characters that have been deleted are no longer available on the Armory.

Now just a minute, there!

Quick email off to the GM to make sure I was demoted before the GB was despoiled (it wasn't), and some thought about it, I decided to check a few other profiles that are NOT mine, and got the same thing.  So, it was a false alarm. The armory is glitching.

But BOY HOWDEE I am awake now.

Now, of course, instead of vanity, I can quote "security" as the reason I track my own achievements in RSS.
