The people over there have set up a nice site of forums, with an unusual (at least for me) social side to it as well - members can earn experience points, reputation, rate threads and posts and so on.
The Consortium is a community focused on the discussion of gold-making in World of Warcraft. It was founded in early February 2010, by Alaera of Twisting Nether US. The concept was simple: establish a community where World of Warcraft’s greatest entrepreneurs can share ideas, without fear of spilling sensitive secrets to the masses. Initially a small group of friends threading ideas on a free bulletin board, The Consortium now seeks to expand.
Our site is host to both public and private forums. The private forum is accessible only to “earned” members, or as well call them, Wind Traders. Wind Trader status (and access to the private forums) is earned on an invite-only or application basis. Due to the sensitive nature of the information contained in the private forums, membership is limited to one player per server. Nonetheless, we plan on regularly releasing articles showcasing the quality of content housed within the private forums. We will do this not only to give back to the community, but also to fuel discussion in the public forums. The public forums are publicly accessible and contain a wealth of information including:
- WoW Economy discussions.
- Power-leveling guides and routes.
- Profession FAQs and leveling guides.
You may browse the current Wind Trader list here (expect this list to grow within the days and weeks ahead).
The Wind Traders are a very exclusive and elite group. If you think you have what it takes, check out the application page.
Sterling, one of the admins, was kind enough to invite me to be one of their 'Wind Traders' so the least I can do is give them a little plug.
