Did you not notice that your Force-using companions now actually turn their lightsabers off properly when you summon them or dismount?

I'm sorry but I was elated. I guess I'm just easy to please.

You have not heard anything because the vocal majority only likes to complain. I have not been in game yet but this is great news.

Someone did mention it: http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=590010

But of course, since it's on the 4th page it doesn't exist.

Oops. Okay, my bad. Sorry for this thread then. It just wasn't everywhere on the forums like the complaint threads are. I mean, when something is broke, there are 30 threads about it in 5 minutes, with people screaming and yelling at BioWare to fix it.

This has been a bug that was in the game for a very long time and, while it didn't affect gameplay, it was extremely annoying. I figured having it fixed would warrant a lot of thank you notes from the playerbase.

My bad.

People showing appreciation on the forums? Now you're just talking crazy.

They've also fixed the level 7 space missions. I have to give them props for that as I've been very vocal about this particular issue for the last month.

Credit where it is due.
May the Schwartz be with you....

But... you're basically posting another complaint thread, complaining that no one mentioned the bug fix. And, then complaining that people post too many complaints.

Also, I'm pretty sure the bug wasn't patched. It was just another screw up that happened to be favorable. I imagine it went something like this:

Joe: "Hey, Steve, look! The saber bug is fixed! Did you do that?"
Steve: "Uh, no. I just updated the Cartel Market."
Joe: "Whoa. Wait, so are you telling me we introduced a bug that somehow fixed a bug?"
Steve: "Dude! It's so zen!"
Joe: "You know what this means?! If we keep screwing things up, our screw-ups will screw-up our screw-ups and everything will be fixed!"
Steve: "Well, my friend, then prepared to be dazzled by some sub-par ham-fisted programming prowess!"
