The gold queen was the pen name of a player on 3 EU servers 2005-2012 who subtly, elegantly owned the auction house. Starting from a position of zero, she accidentally then purposefully controlled the economy of one small RP server, and moved to the big boys, one of the largest servers in Europe. At the time of her disappearance, she owned 1/4 of all the goods that moved through the server.
Where is the gold queen?
She is in the stock market, in the real gold exchange markets, and on Facebook supporting other mothers of autistic children.
Wait what autistic?
Autism is one of those disabilities that people laugh about, calling “retarded”, stupid or rude. My son was diagnosed. He needs my 100% love and attention. He’s more important than a website. It’s a difficult disability to live with, the bullying is especially nasty.
Aren’t you the gold queen anymore?
You never stop being a gold queen, or gold king. Being a gold king, guru, whatever, is a state of mind. It’s not about how much gold you have in your pocket, its the comparison between how much gold you need/want, and how much gold you can generate. Can you do it?
What happened? I really liked your site 🙁
I lost my electricity, and then I lost my heating for two weeks in the snow. Then I lost my hard drive. then my new hard drive didn’t work, nor did the second. then the third arrived. then it was christmas and my family needed me, and then it was 3 months later and I didn’t know what the point was of returning, in the face of abusive remarks from competitors who were claiming to 1) own kunlai summit and 2) own the business model of cheap -v- quality and 3) accused me of stealing these two ideas, despite my bending over backwards to help this person with their website for 6 hours free work one evening. Running The Gold Queen at a loss (whatever gave you the idea that I took money from this venture? items for sale covered 1/10 of costs) in the face of bitter attacks seemed a waste of my time.
I’ve been begged back. I can’t go back. I only do something I can win. Right now, with my responsibilities to my son, I can’t be in a server first raid guild, and I can’t own more than 1/4 of the AH.
So you’re deposed, you’re not the gold queen anymore!
You missed the paragraph above. Being a gold queen/king is a state of mind. I can go on cheap and cheerful android games or the flipping Sims and be gold queen. You can go on WoW, without any support from me, and be gold king. If you set your mind to it.

What is this airy fairy state of mind thing?
“I can teach you the most clever, unorthodox, and effective techniques in the world, but [you] can undo it all if you have the wrong attitude”
In other words, there’s zero point in drawing you mining routes if you can’t be arsed to get up and mine.
A little squirrel told me you sold your website for $20,000
Not true. Your little squirrel only has half the story. Your little squirrel probably doesn’t know about my gold guide. No, not the old mini-guide, the 150 hour movie guide that shows every. little. thing.
Guess what, I didn’t sell it. And it’s not open to the public either. It’s not for sale. It’s only for gold kings and gold queens. If that’s you, then you’ll find a way to contact me. *Matt N found it. Murray found it.
