    I thought I read somewhere they were doing another welcome back for inactive accounts. I can't find any info about it anywhere.

    It wasn't a promotion really, but all inactive accounts were active for about a week. It was due to their migration of the billing system, thus allowing everyone to keep logging in while this switchover was going on. If they have another Return to Britannia, they usually fall around late September/early October so keep an eye out for it then.

    they turned it on for a little while during the account system changeover, it wasnt meant to be an Welcome Back thing. Even when it was on, not all old accounts would log in.

    Yeah you guys abroad are SOL. .. way too expensive for a weekend.

    Wish I was rich I'd blanket a Delta boarding pass for ya all..

    But I'm not.. :(

    We could Skype or webcam simultanious parties though..
    So many people are bummed out about the Account Migration..

    A huge party is what we all need..
    we can all link it for Friday the 26th about 3 pm my time..
    I'll Skype and Webcam streaming here from the restaurant, got over 50 RSVP's already..
    42 of which came to my last one.. (whats that tell ya?)

    P.S. If you'd approve of this Petra or Black Sun I'd get a better turnout.. (hint hint)

    They should have a Return to Brit month next month both for the 14th anniversary and for the problems people have had.

    The RtB thing should be a lot more often. Like a friend pointed out, Blizzard sends out a lot of free gametime to get people to come back to WoW.
