I know...that why you have done this, but, lets be honest, that is a rediculous amount of time to wait for the activation of an account. I put my app in about an hour ago...and I want to be playing NOW...not tomorrow.
Why not automate the process? It would probably bring in more players for the sim.
I find those statements rather contradictory. The process cannot be automated because we want to ensure a quality experience for all of our players, and inappropriate handles or multi-accounts detract from the experience for everyone. You should be approved shortly - as Xavze said, it takes from a few hours to many weeks to travel between systems in the galaxy, weeks or months to build anything, etc.
My apologies if I have upset any of you. Just that I have fond memories of the West End Games Star Wars and the fun I had with my characters there. Just that, Ive been reading over everything here, looking at the races, guides, etc and its really whet my appetite for the game.
I havent seen a browser based game with this much detail before and certainly not one that is based in the Star Wars Universe. Its been some time as well since I have had any sort of decent roleplaying with anyone and Im rather hungry for it.
I don't think we were upset (I certainly wasn't), just trying to explain why the process takes as long as it does. Personally it sounds to me like you're the type of player that we need, as most new players don't bother reading anything before they dive in headfirst, and then subsequently become so confused that they just give up even trying and quit forever.
Trust me, it won't take too long at all, and it's really worth the wait.
“at 32, I do have some patience. Ive been roleplaying for 20 years. And, Im eager to get involved and get started”
I envy you, at 31 and having roleplayed for close to the same time I'm an absolute mess. Shamelessly I might add, some people like to point and laugh you know, other's pull up a deck chair and film the slow demise in an attempt to learn and not follow the same path of lunacy.
Ooookay....so, Im on a planet, my home planet...stuck. Stuck cuz it takes 4 hours to move anywhere and the stupid landspeeder I am supposed to have rented hasny appeared anywhere. The guide didnt cover this. Ill have to spend more time on this tomorrow...but advice would be appreciated.
