I finally found out what was keeping me out of the forums and believe it or not the answer was my password.
It was too long.
Apparently if you're in the 20 character range these Beta forums cannot handle the sheer amount of password and they give up, lock the gates and go hide in a corner shivering in terror at the colossal size of the thing that tried to gain entrance.
. . . or something like that.
Anyway, I just wanted to stop in and say Congratulations to the scores of people who have ranked up, had birthdays, thrown and attended events, and the like! Well done indeed.
Special mention goes to every Warleader who ranked ('cause I'm biased), Budhorn for hitting 15 ('cause that is no small feat), and every Reaver who did anything (because life as a Reaver is the pits right now).
Also I finished up my big stint over in SWTOR and now that I finished with my leveling up I will be back to being a regular feature of the Ettenmoors (we'll see if I stick with the forums).
Keep on truckin' and I'll see all of you out there but in the meantime,
