If that additional time will help them to avoid "heal to full"-type answers, please let them take their time!
Still, in spite of it's ugly nature, "heal to full" turned out to be a one of the best SWTOR's mems

Courtney,
This is completely disrespectful to us. I accept your apology because I choose to believe that you actually are sorry. However, this is yet another time in which your company says one thing and does not align its manpower to effectively achieve that goal. So you may be sorry, but your company's actions continue to demonstrate that as a unit you all do not care enough about your professional work ethic to ensure you meet the goals that you all set for yourself.
As far as taking time, we were told that the devs had been looking into shadow tank spikiness for months. For my job, I was given two tasks yesterday (9/25) to write 500 word essays nominating people that I barely know for awards that I don't think they merited, but I wrote 1000 words about how my company thinks they are deserving and why in addition to my standard 9-hour workload. It took me 90 minutes to answer the question of why they should get these awards. The fact that your entire combat team cannot take the same time to answer six questions about something they are supposed to be experts in is deplorable. It seems that they are either incompetent or uncaring. Professionals accomplish what they are capable of regardless of whether they care or not.
We will now be waiting 18 days between posting questions and receiving answers. 80 hours per team member at 40 hours a week. I am trying to be very respectful, but unless these "thorough" answers are essay-length, you are misleading us and treating us with disdain.

Somewhat disappointed. Well really disappointed. I just hope the answers are well thought out since they're taking their sweet time with the questions.

Hmm...I hope this means Shadows and Mercs will get the best answers ever!*

*I'm also incredibly biased as these are the two ACs I mainly pvp on atm.

If it takes more time to get us a detailed response including data backing the developer point of view and a list of possible changes and their ramifications, that's fine. Please do not disappoint. If after taking extra time to provide answers that amount to the nonsense Sages and Scoundrels received, the community is going to flip out.

The thing is if devs had taken a quick look at the class forums while the questions were still being discussed, they would have had a general idea of what is going to be asked as far as a month ago (the problems of AC's are so clear most of the time that 2 out of 3 questions is obvious during the course of discussion among players).

Also, like others said if answers were really detailed with mathematical arguments and such it would be acceptable but now it just seems unprofessional

Well, whats another few days really, not to say it dosent dissapoint me. But I suppose if it's needed it's needed. For me personally it's the content of the answers that are important, whenever we get them won't change what they are going to say I imagine, so I'll wait and see.
