    I got on during the "off-time" which was really early this morning so, I might have read the schedules wrong maybe?

    I signed up with 5 minutes of getting the newsletter. But it sounds like the closed beta only just recently started.

    Wow, the way the lego forums are run is such a joke. Someone posted in a thread mentioning that he/she had set the game resolution too high and couldn't even get back ingame to turn it back down. So I wrote a reply mentioning the location of the settings file and how to edit it. I had to keep the post below 600 characters (post limit), couldn't use the '<' character (the settings file is a .xml that has lots of them) and then waited over 12 hours for the post to be approved or disapproved by a moderator. Turned out to be the latter. Since then the thread has filled up with suggestions such as 'set compatibility to run in 640x480 mode!' (which doesn't work) and 'there is no settings file, delete and reinstall the game!'

    I really hope this isn't how they're going to run their support forum when the game is out, having to wait over a day for your issue and getting a potential solution to be displayed is a bit unhelpful.

    I wish they'd have playtimes for when I'm actually at home. I only managed to play for about 5 minutes Thursday and about 20 minutes today before I had to get ready for work. At least I'll be off Sunday to play.

    I guess you can say that

    Personally I wouldn't want you saying anything bad before beta, so I certainly wouldn't be taking the stand if you want to say something good that would be okay.

    If I was a beta-runner person.

    Just want to chime in that the beta forums are TERRIBAD and make me REALLY worry about the amount of feedback the dev team is ACTUALLY getting from the players

    I refer to champions online- where the devs were REALLY looking for input from players, and the game I played in early beta is VERY different then the game I am playing now

    VERY worried that my concerns are not being heard because I submitted several posts (and tried to work with the 600 char limit) about the issues and suggestions I had on THURSDAY, and they have not been posted yet.

    Very worried

    Methinks with all the publishers legal Lego™ mumbojumbo on the project. I'd suspect it's all about server stress and bugs, and not about refining gameplay as much (at all).

    To be vague I'll probly give this a pass at launch. Very strong Free Realms vibe. Which I can't say is surprising given the target audience

    You could drop them an email from the in-game help interface. I also suspect that, as developers, they know just how silly those geese are on the forums and are putting more weight on the surveys (which don't seem to have character limits) and emails. I make most of my big points in those post-play surveys anyway.

    Hi There Explorer,

    Thank you for your email reporting a bug in LEGO Universe.
    Unfortunately, the LEGO Universe Support Team is only available during the following hours:

    Thursday – 17.00 – 03.00 CET (Central European Time)
    Saturday - 20:00 and 02:00 CET
    Sunday - 14:00 and 17:00 CET

    We will try to answer your question and/or concern as quickly as possible but there may be a delay in getting back to you out of hours.

    We thank you for your continued support and hope to speak to you soon.

    LEGO Universe Support Team

    really not liking the lack of discourse between developers and playtesters

    like someone said upthread- I think this is all really stress/bug testing and I doubt any of our complaints will actually be listened to or considered
