At least you'll be on the computer, and probably won't be at school. D:

LOL I've passed that station loooong ago shayneii... I've been working for almost 14 years now! ;)

things like rating a game based on art work, music, game play, etc.

:O THis sounds interesting.

Only something any good review on a game SHOULD have in it in my opinion... ;)

oh and also where will the sign up page be located?

Yes, that's something we haven't been told yet!?! I have a good hunch on where it will be, but having an official statement would make things much easier for us... ;)

ROFL! Fun to see that there's still some work to be done! My post got entered before two older posts... and there I was thinking my post mysteriously dissapeared?! 0_o

Now let's see if my second respond will mysteriously 'vanish' too! =P

November 8th will begin our CLOSED beta with our pre-selected user group, but everyone else can sign up for the OPEN beta.

We don't know what time the page will go live, but it'll be some time between 9am and 6pm Pacific (California) time, and will replace the currently page at http://beta.armorgames.com when it's ready.

We do not have a firm date set for when open beta will begin, nor how big the batches of users will be. We'll likely start out small, maybe a hundred or so users at a time. We may push out the activation code Emails to users on a daily basis, depending on how things are going. If we run into any major issues, we'll stop sending invites while we get things cleared up. Depending on how many beta requests we get, there may be people who don't get into beta. The ONLY criteria we're using that I'm aware of right now for accepting beta users is the order in which you sign up.

It's also VERY important to let everyone know that the beta site has elements from your user profile which are synchronized from the current AG2 site. As such, changing some of your profile information on AG3 will get overwritten from AG2 periodically. In fact, there may be times where we wipe all info on AG3 and start over. That's sorta the point of beta.

We're REALLY looking forward to hearing what you guys think of AG3!

A question, is it possible to play games on this version of armorgames while the beta page is active?

And you aren't going to pick the VERY first users that sign up for the beta? Because i am also in a different time zone so...

GIGAgamer, we should have all games available to play on the beta.

So is November 8th closed beta or open beta?

I'm pretty sure Cormyn meant that the beta is open to people who sign up November 8th and the public later.  Whether the people who try the first beta are hand-picked or not, I'm not sure, but from what I heard it sounds like everyone will be using the beta instead of AG2 by the time public trials are put into place.

Would we get that back, or is it just like cookies or something?

Joe96, in a nutshell: if you see a setting on AG3 that doesn't exist on AG2, it probably won't get overwritten. However, if you see something about your profile that has data from AG2 already (password, biography, Email address, avatar choice, birthdate, etc), then THOSE fields may get overwritten by AG2 data at any time without any warning, if you change that data on AG3.
