You're dangerously close to not getting one if you keep complaining about something that is a courtesy, not a right.

I will NOT go on my usual rant defending the admins of WoWI as at this point, I don't think any defense is necessary. Suffice to say, when THEY know something, YOU will know something.

there... simple and to the point. Pretty good for once...

Well that's true, but there are more than 800 replies to this thread did you think none of them thought to ask? I think that's amusing.

As for no update, I am completely satisfied with the abundance of information available. I was given a personal number (like the butcher's take a number system) and the first post has is being edited to show which number they are upto (much like the now serving serving). This is HUGE compared to battle.net's default lottery which has not provided me even a single update of any kind at all in all the time since the button's appeared.

I jut wanted to thank WoWI for giving authors a chance to play the beta, Personalty i would be happy if i got my key even a week before the release. Would hate for it to happen that way, but i can tell you i wouldn't stop playing for that week.

well, im not asking for something like "plz give me a key", im simply stating that
a simple /tell to blizzard would notify them that wowinterface is out of keys, im not expecting myself a key anytime soon, but just suggesting how to get things moving faster, like if someone finished all your milk and
didnt tell you, you dont go to the store until you know that the milk is out...
no need to go haywire, im simply sorry if you did not understand the purpose
of my post, maybe i was unclear

Seemed pretty clear to me...

I guess the admins here just aren't intelligent enough to think of telling Blizz that they need more keys...

<you guys know I'm being sarcastic, right? RIGHT???>

Believe me, cometangel, we haven't just been sitting here on our thumbs.

Not sure why you would think we were.


/edit: DJFreia: nothing's changed since the last 5 times we've said that you guys will know as soon as we know

The whole speculation about the ETA and size of the next stack of keys is void, anyway.

I understand that most people who signed up for a key are eager to play the beta (me included), but the last thing I heard, addons are still disabled. Don't forget that the reason for us addon authors to get the luxury of guaranteed keys is to make our addons cataclysm-ready.

Just enjoy the wait in pleasant anticipation and if you are bored, think about new cool features for your addons. ;-)

Give us a freaking break cometangel. This isnt the first time we have done this. They ALWAYS slow down after a bunch of keys.

Blizzard knows almost every day how many people are waiting for a key. We have communication skills.

I'm sure they have a good reason for slowing down the keys.

I think the first post should be ammended.

"When new keys are available we will let everyone know by adding them to the list at the bottom of this post. Anyone asking for an ETA will be removed from the queue and no longer given a chance to recieve a key."

Quite honestly I think it's very annoying that people need to ask this question. READ the thread (or in the case of DJFreia looking up a few posts to see the answer by voodoo).

Seriously peple read the thread .. all you need to look for is user names in RED ... theses are ADMIN ... chances are one of their posts in this post has your answer.

Why is cometangel asking for a key ETA anyway .. doesn't even have an addon here.

O'Rly? i had an addon very usefull for players, but admin removed it since he/she is corrupt and gets key for em self and sells em, just check the mmowned elite section... also a close friend of mine (wont mention who) and very high positioned on wowi confirmed they have had a batch of 250 keys added here just 2 days ago by word of blizz... way to go wowi (Y) just do w/e... i dun care anymore... in one or two days you will get keys just because i showed you proof of this... anyone with elite on mmowned can check it out for themselves

Your addon was removed because it was about 8 lines and it did something the default UI already did. We wouldn't have caught it had you not been snide and generally rude causing us to take a second look at your addons. Not that I'm complaining, we can give it to someone who actually deserves it.

I trust this is some type of a joke. If not, you had better expect to be drawn, quartered and hung out to dry in little, tiny pieces by the time the community gets finished with you. The admins on this site deserve nothing but praise for the professional way they conduct themselves. To even have someone hint at, let alone out right state, that they are dishonest has me shaking with anger.
