|Role||Former UI & Macros MVP|
Cogwheel, aka Matthew Orlando, was an MVP on the UI & Macros Forum, but resigned in late December 2008 ("I reached my tolerance threshhold for not telling people what i REALLY think ;)")
Shortly after the UI Add-on Development Policy was introduced, Cogwheel edited his macro guide posts with a message of protest (which was later removed). In response, Blizzard erased virtually every post of his from the forums and banned him for a week. One of his protests survived, ironically because of blue post response. His only post since that time was a farewell to the community.
Cogwheel is a gnome. Some of his gnomish exploits include:
- Being a former UI & Macros forum MVP.
- Authoring numerous addons (see Cogwheel's Workshop).
- Co-authoring a book on writing addons.
- Laying waste to sprockets at every opportunity.
