    Purple post by Cory

    In case you missed it buried deep in the Alpha Update thread...

    "we are actively trying to fix the things we have found that create show stopping events, we are working hard on it and we are getting close, as soon as we have this figured out we will bring in more people, it should be soon"

    SO good news!

    Dear Cory,

    As you know through having worked with them, "Soon" is a Trademark word owned by Blizzard. It is a word used to express hope only to be doomed by reality that it is never as quickly as people want it to be. Perhaps we should use words like " Quick or Rapid instead, so as to not have that good ole Blizzard feel of doom associated with it. I find words like presently or instantly indicate a time that implies more of a now state and thus should not be considered.

    Thankyou,
    A long time Blizzard game player
    The art work for opening the chest is very nice.

    Blizz didn't have a monopoly on Soon(TM), we City of Heroes devs used it before they did

    Discworld MUD creators literally used the phrase "Soon(tm)" whenever anyone would ask when Feature X was going to be ready... that was 20 years ago. Sorry, Johnny-come-lately.

    according to the US trademark search "soon" isn't owned by anyone. but feel free to prove me differently.

    Your search has expired. Either case, "Soon" is wordmarked by like ten different Korean companies, some of which are still active.

    Wow. I bet you're a blast at office parties.

    This post is trademarked, by the way.

    How deep could it possibly be buried if it is a new post? Or is this an old post?
