Hey everyone,

We are going to be bringing all SWTOR servers offline for a quick maintenance. We expect to be down for approximately one hour. This maintenance is to address an in-game exploit. As a part of what we are doing during this maintenance, players will find that all of their GTN sales have been expired. Once we come back online you will find any GTN sales that you had waiting for you in your mailbox.

With the exploit resolved, we will be conducting a thorough investigation of what has occurred. Once we have completed our review, we'll let you know the status and the actions we have taken.

EA isn't liable to cover any lost time on events due to something like this, it is there in the agreement you signed. if EA are kind they could add a day or two, but that depends on them.

Thanks for letting us know, I finally get time out from the craziness that is RL (real life) and get a server error. Great to know it is not operator error!
