Thanks to the combined effort of Takumi and BigSexy, member uniforms are live!

They must be made one at a time, and it is a manual and time intensive exercise, but one that I think you will agree is worth it.

Feel free to contact BigSexy with any questions, suggestions, or comments about this new feature.

Thanks as well to EmperorsHammer.org for creating the uniform generator and allowing us to use it. Thanks GA Rapier!

The time has arrived. That is right, server mergers are a go for tomorrow Tuesday, September 18 with the big eight (8) hour maintenance downtime.
 
BioWare provided some background and information about the process that is to take place.
 
  • Destination servers were upgraded to support a higher population.
  • All charaters on origin servers will be automatically be moved to the new high population destination servers.
    • No characters will be deleted during this transition, but you may find your characters on a different destination server.
    • You can view the new location on the server selection screen by clicking on the "Characters" column.
    • A red exclamation (!) next to the character name requires a name change.
  • Legacy names are no longer unique across servers.
  • One or more guilds with the same name on the same destination server will have their guild name changed to OriginalGuildName@OriginServer, for those that need to change their guild name.
    • A rename button will be provided in the guild management window.
    • There is no time limit to use the rename button.
    • It is a one (1) time use button.
