SlideShare takes a beating over April Fool

I use SlideShare from time to time to share presentations. It’s a fine service and does what it’s supposed to.
When I checked my email first time this morning I found this waiting for me”

“We’ve noticed that your slideshow on SlideShare has been getting a LOT of views in the last 24 hours. Great job … you must be doing something right. icon wink SlideShare takes a beating over April Fool
Why don’t you tweet or blog this? Use the hashtag #bestofslideshare so we can track the conversation.
Congratulations,
-SlideShare Team”

“Oh, nice” I thought. I didn’t go out and tweet about it, I didn’t blow my own bugle or anything.
I decided to follow up on the email and see just how many views my profile had when I found this on the front page of the slideshare site:

Now, I’m normally all over the April Fools and can often spot them a mile away. But who would think of this one?! add two zeros to a users’ views. hmmmm.

There are a lot of people none-too-impressed with this one, take a look at the comments here.

What do you think?

    I've been away from making lotro gold for quite a long while. This isn’t really a great hdro gold tip, but please bear with me as I get back into the lord of the rings online gold flow of bringing in thousands of herr der ringe online gold.

    First, this is an advanced lotro gold strategy requiring you to to have at least several hundred hdro gold as starting capital and have leveled your lord of the rings online gold Jewelcrafting and herr der ringe online gold Enchanting professions to a minimum of 350 each. If you are at least in your aion kina 60s and are able to do dailies in the aion gold Burning Crusade then this is a aion kina guide for you.

    As every aion gold Jewelcrafter knows, prospecting ore gets you aion powerleveling to use both for crafting jewelry and for use in aion powerleveln. You can make some aion powerleveling from doing this throughout your aion powerleveln. It is also a no-brainer that if you have a solid eve online isk from other activities (like BC dailies or auctioneering) you can drop the eve isk kaufen, buy all your eve isk from the auction house and pick up Enchanting to sell disenchanted materials from eve online isk kaufen.

    For anyone who has been practicing eve isk (or plans to) and has managed to raise both their eve online isk Jewelcrafting and Enchanting to 350, the following Jewelcrafting eve isk kaufen recipes are probably the cheapest and easiest to produce compared to the eve online isk kaufen you will get from selling their disenchants:

    guild wars gold Bloodstone Band
    guildwars gold Crystal Citrine Necklace
    guild wars gold Crystal Chalcedony Amulet
    guildwars gold Sun Rock Ring
    These cost only 2 guild wars items and one gem of the appropriate type, making guild wars items relatively cheap to produce. While I would recommend prospecting with silkroad online gold for the increased drop chance of epic gems, you can use silkroad gold also.

    The last chaos gold above disenchant mainly into Infinite Dust, but have the chance also to d/e into Lesser Cosmic Essence or a Small lastchaos gold. Depending on your realm, all of these will bring in a lot more last chaos gold than the raw ore or jewelry it is crafted into.

    And if you stick to prospecting Saronite Ore for your lastchaos gold, the nice pile of epic gems can be cut into socketable cabal online alz that can almost be guaranteed to make you thousands of cabal online alz. To really take advantage of this, you will need to be pushing 400 in your metin2 Jewelcrafting level. So if you start this metin 2 technique at a lower level, you might want to hold off on using metin2 yang until you’ve crafted a bunch of the metin2 from the list above.

    The underpinning metin 2 question that either makes or breaks the metin2 yang with this technique is where to get the mats to make your ragnarok zeny in the first place?

    The obvious and optimal ragnarok online zeny answer is to have an alt character who is high enough level to take on the duties of Mining or Enchanting. You may not have an alt that can do that, or you might not want to take the ro zeny and effort to mine the ore and mail it. In that case you will want to buy ragnarok zeny from the auction house.

    If you choose to buy ro zeny from the auction house, you will need to make sure and carefully plan out how much the disenchanted ragnarok online zeny sell for and which cut gems sell the best. You can do a quick and informal study simply by doing the following figures:

    (stack of ore) * (gem drop chance) / (price of stack of ore) = p

    2(price of 1 crystallized earth) + p = price of item for disenchant

    Now simply compare the warhammer gold it costs you to produce one of those items to the average price the disenchant warhammer online gold go for on the auction house for your realm. There is more math to be done here for those so inclined. I will leave it for later or for a helpful reader to add to the warhammer online gold section.

    warhammer gold are very good even if you find your realm sucks for this technique, you can still skim an extra warhammer online gold or so gold a week in profit by sticking with it and finding the best times of week to list your kal online geons. And like I wrote earlier, if you stick with the Saronite ore and have the kal online geon to cut the popular gems on your realm, you could be banking mir2 gold in the five figures every week. It goes without saying, the mir 2 is still a gold-maker’s best friend.

    You can find all kinds of awesome mir2 gold tips like this in the Ultimate WoW Guide. It’s a complete mir 2 gold guide with strategies for making gold, leveling quickly and even the best PVP mir2 strategies. I have found it quite indispensible.

    Mithril is your mir 2 moneymaker. Engineering and Blacksmithing both need massive quantities of the mir2 gold, and it sells fast, and for a fairly high price. One word: Tanaris. You could travel around the whole thing, but I've found mir 2 gold much easier to start at Gadgetzan, and cut across the wow powerleveling desert to the start of the bug area, checking all of the little rock outcroppings on the wow powerleveling way.

    This wow power leveling place is dangerous, and I even die some at 45+, but there are a lot of wow power leveling spawns here. Travel along the edge, and then back along the outter boundry of wow power leveling, and then continue on circling the map. There are a lot of spawns in here, and their wow powerleveling value shows in the defense the mobs put up. I'm not going to lie to you, dragonica will be hard to live consistantly here without a mount or travel form. Thistleshrub valley also has a few dragonica online, and then another bug area on the edge of Un'Goro crater. There are also one or two by Zul'Farrak and the area close to Gadgetzan. They don't spawn as often as the others do, though.

    Another favorite dragonica gold of mine is the Elder Mistvale Gorrilas. They don't have high def or HP, and are right next to BB. It is a bit of an opening to ganking, but they drop their whiskers or whatever often. I don't remember the dragonica online gold name, but it's something like that. They stacks up to 10, and the stacks go for 66s or so to vendors. They also drop fangs, and have a nice selection of world drops. You can skin them consistantly for heavy and thick leather as well.
