    I really hope those with active service are compensated for lost time during the merge maintenance.

    I don't think they do that anymore. I mean I know they used to but I know they haven't compensated services in years now (because barely anyone buys vip services anymore since 3 years ago we discovered that KR has been getting some sweet vip updates and we have been left to rot).

    Good question. I think your termination date is shown on the soul stream screen; take a screen shot and compare after the maintainence.

    They were supposed to be updating VIP this year, early in the year.

    Yes I know that. I think that's the next big move they are going to tackle after the merge. That or name change coupons.

    Unfortunately more than likely because of the aftermath of the merge, name change coupons are not going to be made available within the week of the merge.

    And thus this is why we actually have these disclaimers following all of our comments lately, it was for memes but ultimately it's something you should be concerned about. We are sick of the deletions and reprimands, even though we know there is a crap storm to come. We have been here a long time and we know better based on past experience and events.

    Prepare yourselves.

    I'm guessing it'll take a week, and then they come to tell us why its taken a week:

    All the data was deleted (including Alexina, just cause).

    I voted for cancelled, though.

    Yeah that's always a possibility. I mean they say they are testing, but are they testing with copies of the actual servers? Or are they just testing with some characters they made that don't include a plethora of information and legacy from the last 11 years?

    See that's a good question.

    Well the good news is that if it's a major problem they'll be a lot more inclined to find a solution

    You know, that's true. I just think problems should be prevented. I wish they would update that FAQ.



    But you know what guys, lets get back on topic here. What are you guys going to do while the server is down?

    Btw...totally going to start tagging this to the end of all my comments from here on out.

    Likely only an hour or three if it's done the way I'm guessing they'll do it. Anything extra is pretty much just verification that things work properly

    Yep. Lets say: the actual work to make the transfer could be done in 12 hours I think, but then there's confirmation of results and then any trouble shooting. But if they're gangsta they'll do it in 12. XD

    I meant more along the lines of having it done passively over a few days before maintenance actually happens, and then just touching by info that was modified since then, then just pulling switcharooony and a game of spot-the-difference. Hence the wild guess at a relatively short "maintenence"
