It is with a growing sense of pride for the world of warcraft community that I declare victory for this petition. In less than twenty four hours we've earned eleven thousand signatures, a huge amount of traction on many gaming and new outlets, as well as assurance from Blizzard employees that our desire for a Robin Williams tribute and or NPC will be handled with great care.
Robin Williams death continues to shock and sadden millions of people around the world, and while a single non-player character in a video game is only a small good thing to come out of a largely negative situation -- many cannot help but feel that they've preserved a tiny spark of who Mr. Williams was: a gamer, and a character.
Many heartfelt thanks are offered to those who embraced the idea behind this petition in the face of so many negative comments and outright bullying by other players. Without you I'm positive that our goal would of never been met. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. And I will see you in game.
"You're only given one little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it." -- Robin Williams
