Double XP/CXP for sure...the other stuff I don't care about either way.

Double CXP/XP for sure but this is something I could easily get behind.

Make it happen.

Double makes the horrible things done to this game tolerable, they should never turn it off.

Again, double CXP should be the standard rate, so of course I'm down with it being on all the time.

The rest I'm indifferent on. I'd say Life Day can stay until spring because there's certainly enough snow where I am and there's nothing else Christmas-y about it. If people wanted to they could run around in those sleigh-type speeders and throw snowballs all year anyway so who cares?

Double Double: what does it matter at this point if you leave it on forever now? People will still level alts.
Bounty Week: the traffic is mostly in the bazaar. Not many do it anyway except that first Tuesday....
Gree Event: One of my favorites. Traffic is on Ilum in its own area. Not many do it anymore. The guilds can manage their own participation accordingly.
Nar Shadaa Night Life: Has its own casino area. Chat would die down after the first few weeks. Be kinda cool to have quests that go through there and real people are playing.

Rakghoul Event: This one you probably need to rotate like it is. Too many players would freak about the plague.
Life Day Event: see Rakghoul above but replace plague with snowballs.

What do you guys think? I just don't see that it matters much anymore.
This is a great suggestion, and it is something we have discussed doing in the past. All events always on might be a bit much, but running them more often / having more than one on at a time has been discussed. Right now there are some limitations on our side which prevent us from doing this. However, the interest/suggestion is noted!

Just double CXP and make that the norm...that will make many people happy.

You know that will be the one that doesn't get turned on.

I'm with you, the others I couldn't care less about and I doubt they will do anything for player retention, once the reputation is earned they become dull and seem to come around pretty often as it is. After all if they didn't what would be use to pad out the update highlights.

Honestly having them at specific periods gives me something to look forward to.. In my opinion if they were on all the time they'd be like 'weeklies' to me and I'd just not do them.
