The economic impact of allied races over the next few weeks
Void Elves Everywhere! “Void elves are alliance only because they were crying and wanted their own blood elves”. – from Joe on the forums via a YouTuber he was watching
Unlocking races on factions: you can do the requirements on either side but you need someone on that faction to do the unlock quests. (An Alliance member can have the achievements for Nightborne and Highmountain Tauren, but a 110 Horde must do the quests)

Speculation that the new flower crowns datamined earlier will be perks for this year’s Love Is In the Air

Classic interview
Old code no longer compiles

New graphics are on the table, wants to hear from the community
My guess – not until 2019
Forum people are SO IMPATIENT.

Mod of the Cast: Memoria (Tororosso) – https://wow.curseforge.com/projects/memoria
Joe posted a screenshot macro on the Naked and Afraid discussion board that displays played time and takes a screenshot 0.2 seconds after
Tororosso posted about Memoria, an addon that takes a screenshot automatically for different milestones, such as leveling, achievements, reputation levels, or when a battleground or arena ends.
Only issue with Memoria is that it doesn’t put in the /played time, unless you’ve put it in right before you ding
