I am a Wind Trader at The Consortium forums, among many others. We range from very popular to new bloggers, and figures in the World of Warcraft economy game. But our main goal is to put our heads together and help keep this community flourishing. The Consortium is in partnership with many community sites, including Just My Two Copper.
From the "About" page:
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 forums are 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:
WoW Economy discussions.
Power-leveling guides and routes.
Profession leveling FAQs and guides.
The site will also host a GDKP forum, which will conglomerate and streamline GDKP runs from all servers worldwide.
