    In my experience, KNOWN meant they'd filed an internal JIRA for it, and then marked it KNOWN so they wouldn't need to look at the thread again to see if they'd already got it into the system. It also meant that they'd been able to reproduce it internally as well, I believe.

    sometimes its hard to find a duplicate because the way you word it, could be entirely different from someone else, in a completely different section. I also seem to recall that one thing I remember them saying was that because they do test stuff internally, many of the bugs we report have already been found by someone at port.

    I havent gotten anything since further back. So not sure whats going on with it. Apparently logging in and submitting a couple bugs isnt enough. I dont generally test the crafting stuff as its not my thing but i Do test scenes and quests when they are about

    I have not gotten QA testing rewards in 10 months. I guess any of the following are possible:
    1) Perhaps I was not entered into the lottery (despite meeting the entry criteria).
    2) Perhaps I've been unlucky and have not won the lottery during the 10 months.
    3) Perhaps I won a lottery, but Portalarium is behind on issuing the reward.
    4) Perhaps Portalarium is not issuing QA rewards anymore.​

    IKR?

    The lack of information is becoming the new norm unfortunately. I generally just check QA these days to make sure stuff works at least in Linux :)

    Occasionally submitting bugs. Some receive a reply. Some just sit.

    I really think the community can be better utilized to help with pushing the game forward. But inconsistently interacting with us for at least bugs. I dunno.

    ::sigh::

    I believe @Ravalox was brewing up something.
