I'm not sure why you think that, as I wrote "We’ve just about finished up on the development side of things..." meaning that we're about to engage in testing.
Remember this is Bioware so it'll be like 1.2 where entering testing means it'll be copied onto the PTR and anyone who still bothers submitting bug reports will be ignored and everything will break on patch day then be haphazardly repaired with a series of emergency maintenance periods.

Same time tomorrow night?

Edit: We should totally record this in game and post a video here :-)
It was great. So good in fact, we extended it to 32-seconds. I think we should lengthen the name to: Baby Tauntaun 32-Second Dance-Off Dance Party for People Who Like to Dance like a Baby Tauntaun Fawn. Yeah, that name rocks.

We pumped up the jams and let out our "I sit in this chair for a good portion of the day" energy. And Ari from the Marketing team made a surprise visit to do the worm -- he was a little late to the party, but it worked to our advantage because we weren't dancing and could watch him flail around on the carpet.

Let’s do another one next Friday (6/8) at 5PM CDT. It feels so good move around when my brain starts frying near the end of the day.

Also, thumbs up to you creating a video showing us your in-game dance moves. Do it!

I have a question for the Community Team,

As you can see there is a VERY vocal negative percentage of the community. To read the forums, you would believe that the game is, in fact, doomed.

I don't believe that. I think the game is in a holding pattern due to the lack of population on most of the servers, but I don't believe the game is doomed. So here is my question.

To get a finger on the pulse of the SW:TOR community. Can we institute some POLLS to engage the community here and get their voice (or vote) out there on more of the pressing issues of the community? One account - One vote, sort of thing? Maybe some kind of poll where people can vote on what features are of the greatest importance to us (other than the population issue). This would make it easier than sifting through all the threads to see if something has been discussed or opening multiple useless threads on the same issue?

I've seen people asking for Cross-server PVP and I've seen people speaking out against it. As I am actually NEW to the PVP aspect, I'm curious which is of greater importance to the community. Also features such as Chat Bubbles, Mentoring system, etc. I think it would be beneficial to US and to YOU.

This image shows exactly where swtor is.
Ganking leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to pvp.
The Swtor forum attracts trolls because the forums are more fun than raiding dragon soul.
Complaining is the new meta game.

Relabeling future patches as Expansions, just like EA Louse said a year ago. Who got the last laugh?

Oh hey, how is it going? You should run for community manager. You would fit right in.
