Now that is an impressive job of dancing around the truth.
You are technically correct, submitting the ticket does not cause the versioning error. However, the process you use to restore the item or grant the item the ticket refers to DOES indeed cause the versioning error.
Just a bit of clarity for the masses, since you did a nice job obfuscating the real truth of it.
No, what he said was 100% accurate with regards to the subject of the thread. If you submit a ticket, your character won't be versioned.
The fact of the matter is that it is your post that is obscuring the truth by introducing extraneous subject matter into the discussion that has nothing to do with the OPs' statement.
What you should really be saying is in order to clarify is: "Go ahead and submit your tickets, just be prepared to wait until the bug is fixed if your ticket involves lost items."
See how that works?
