Website of the Day: Datecraft

Finally a dating site for the World of Warcraft–obsessed friends that put up a roommate ad on Craigslist. aims to "assist and facilitate the building of relationships between World of Warcraft enthusiasts." A site called The Curse recently interviewed the Datecraft founder, who explained that the inspiration for the site came after years of him playing online games and wondering about the people on the other end of the Internet. Here's more:

I began to wonder “who are these people I’m playing with?” Was that Midgard Dwarf really a short stubby 40-something year old in his mom’s basement? Or was it a really attractive, young female that had some extra time on her hands? In any case, my curiosity led me to begin thinking about ways in which I would be able to meet, or at least see, my fellow guildmates (and the random PUG groups) on or offline. And, to be quite honest, the Elf from Hibernia, was she dateable?

After the launch of World of Warcraft, the Datecraft founder said he began hearing "real life stories of people who had met in game, contacted each other in real life, met each other, dated, and then married!" The resulting site is a natural extension of the online gaming and dating phenomenon, but is genuinely entertaining and interesting for both gamers and nongamers.

I love warcraft but currently can't play 'cause I can't fit it into my budget. But when I heard news of the Datecraft site I joined thinking it would be fun. I was wrong, as usual. To me it was a site full of pervy men and immature boys. It was a nice idea though.
