Yesterday we posted a transcript of a portion of Senior Community Coordinator David Bass’ interview on the Mos Eisley Radio podcast.

We thought it would be useful to post a transcript of the section under contention. The following section begins at 26:22 of the podcast.
David: This is actually more of a fansite meeting, I want to say, between us and the sites we’re bringing out because we want to kind of take a look at the post-launch landscape for fansites.

HoloNet Links #16
As we get adjusted, here in the Northern Hemisphere, for colder temperatures, things in SWTOR have been heating up. New York Comic-Con produced several interesting bits of information, for a show that would not revealing really anything. We now have a Global release date, for all those in areas scheduled to get the game on this first part of launch, December 20th, 2011. We also found out that there will be 15 Flashpoints and not one, but two Operations in the game at launch! Today is also a big day, as the press embargo is being lifted, so media sources should be giving us many, many more articles about Star Wars: The Old Republic. Oh yeah, since today is the 20th of October…We only have two months till official launch! Get your /dance emote on and head to a cantina! Now, let’s get into this week’s links 🙂
