Instead of complaining about why its late... could someone PLZ tell us WHEN it will start?

I hope SOE will add this lost time to extend it as well.  Oh!  Would be nice to give those of us that stood around waiting at the various tinktime locations 5000 free cogs!

I really wish people would stop assuming 'they' know the correct answer to the question when in reality they dont even know the question.

My question was & is ....... now that Tinkerfest is over 6 hours late, when will it start?  What is the new ETA of it and will this lost time be added to the event time?

I'm sure we'll find out when, when one of them finally wakes up and sees this.

Don't expect it to be extended. They rarely do so for events that start late, unless it's really, really late.

Or they could have just set it up to turn everything on, and not just the aether races (or the npc that spams about it every 15 seconds), at the time it was supposed to.

Glad they might be waking up soon, but I'm sure that doesn't make the couple of us that have been sitting here waiting for 7+ hours feel any better about it.

Yeah, I may be a little crabby, it's after 9 am here now.

Sad thing is it worked just fine last year, not sure how they managed to break it this year.

and the crystal ball says sometine with in the next 365 days....

serious no one knows, there appears to be a glitch in the autostart, netops is probably working on it, if they have to bring in devs or network people it could take a few mrore hours

Would be nice to get some sort of color red to let us know whats going on. But in typical fashion we just have to assume and guess and wait till something happens then take it upon ourselves to relay messages and information. We should be getting the paychecks as we do the work.!

I have an idea for the devs: How about instead of starting events in the middle of the night on a weekend, you schedule them for a weekday afternoon. That way, if something like this happens, you will actually be around to fix it and people like me who schedule time to do said events aren't left in the dust with no word as to when they can proceed with their plans.

Have to agree here.. normally events start on Tuesday or Thursday, so seeing one on a Sunday was surprising.

Here's my conspiracy theory I just shared on the Test channel: The dates for this year's Tinkerfest EXACTLY matches the dates for last year's Tinkerfest (29th-8th). I'd almost bet someone forgot to update the *year*. Aether races are likely running because those were just added to it this year.

Makes sense, though not any less frustrating.

Sigh...  Last year, Tinkerfest started one day after we left on our summer trip, and ended two days before we got back. 

I was so happy to see this year that I would have 3 days of Tinkerfest before we left on our yearly vacation.  But now I fear I will miss the whole thing again.  And this festival is the one I have really been wanting to do too...  SMILEY

I'm hearing reports on AB that it's finally started.

Confirmation from other servers?

What confusion? You said it would start at such and such time and it didn't. The only confusing thing is why somebody from SOE didn't get on this right away and let us know what was going on.
