This seems to update regularly even if its just 'not up today'. With the stuff about houses and more to come perhaps billing and other stuff will be mentioned soon.

May 11th
All SOE games and sites are still offline as of May 11th and will not return today. Thank you again for your continued patience and support as we diligently work on these issues. Players with an active house will be credited one month of upkeep costs and the inactive period will be extended from 90 to 150 days. More information on SOE's "Make Good" plan to come.

Wonder if they will include inactive subscriptions on those free days. Doesn't really specify, but I think it wouldn't hurt them to do so... since they will probably be quite a few quitting.

If you were inactive when the problems started I'm pretty sure you won't be given an 'additional 30 days' - since you didn't have any days to start with. ;p

Whats funny is they made some note of back rubs for all their games including 2 of their 5 card games... Guess it sucks to be SW TCG, LON, or star chamber.

Just checked my account while changing my pw, looks like everyone gets the free days. So if you have played in a while, come reminisce. Ill be delayed a day(irony), bout a 24 hour patch for me.

I have 45 free days on an account that has not been active in over two years?

I like free. Even budweiser tastes good if it is free...actually, scratch that, it doesn't but the concept is still valid
