To some it might seem like such a small thing; especially given how many players feel there are still glaring bugs that should be take priority above this sort of thing. However, to devote the time and energy to do the 'little' things like this shows that you guys care about your players and the worlds you've created for us to play in.
So on behalf of the players who do enjoy the game; to everyone here that runs the site and the forums, and to everyone at BioWare and EA and LucasArts; thank you for caring to give us updates like this.
Exactly what this guys said. Thanks for even the smallest of improvements, it shows you care about the game. There are always going to be bugs and glitches, but tweaking details such as this is what brings life into TOR. Thanks Bioware and all responsible!
