2002-11-01, 06:22 PM
Thank you for completing the PlanetSide[R] Beta Application. We greatly appreciate your interest in helping us test our product. We will be evaluating your beta application based on a number of factors, including prior gaming experience.
If we accept you into the Beta, we will send you another email with further instructions and all of the information necessary for you to acquire the Beta CD.
Please note that you will only receive an email if you are accepted. You do not have to reapply for a chance to participate in future phases of beta; you will automatically be considered and notified by email if you are selected for any given phase.
We are very excited to be entering this phase of PlanetSide[R] development, and once again we thank you for your interest in being a PlanetSide beta tester.

2002-11-02, 12:09 PM
Just a few minutes

I didn't get the e-mail with the code in it like it said I would so I clicked the little link that said "Click here if you didn't recieve an e-mail with your code" then I put in my e-mail hit submit and bang It came.
If you didn't get the e-mail already I'd suggest you concider starting over and then look for the link to get the e-mail sent to you when your on that "enter your code" page.

I'm still waiting. It's only been a few hours. I did hit the link a few times to try to have the code resent to my email. However, no such luck as I still have no confirmation code. So, either the site is just too busy, the automatic email is broken, or they just don't send automatic emails on weekends...lol. Either way, I'm left to "chill" with the rest of those that can't sign-up and wait to see what happens.
Best of luck to everyone!

I wouldent worry too much, whatever the problem is I am sure they are working on it. Plus, its not first come first serve..

Keep trying to get your confirmation code during different times of the day...
I just clicked the email link again to ask for my confirmation code and I, finally, received it and completed the Beta application. So, even though you may have tried numerous times earlier...don't give up as it went through fine for me this last time (about 3 hours after my first request).
Best of luck, everyone!

I note that you got a "we've received your application" email; how long did *that* take to arrive? After you clicked submit on the beta questionaire (second step), were you taken to a page saying something like "now wait for another email"?
I have filled out all the fields of the questionaire, clicked submit, and been redirected to the questionaire again; no email received, in roughly 12 hours now.
Oh, I see now; there's a character/word-limit on the "why I'm great" field. It's not specified, however.

I'm on about 2nd day with no reply :(, I've tried 5 different email addresses around 10 times apiece at all times of the day, so anyone else whose feeling left out I'm right there with ya.

overusing ";" =)
2002-11-03, 11:22 AM
...right away. 2 seconds-ish.
On the down side, I don't have the required 512MB of ram (which is a rediculous amount of memory to require), so I'm probably SOL too. That, despite having a hugely overqualified CPU and graphics card (2.23 ghz p4 and a GF4 TI 4600... I like to brag).
Fooey. I guess I'll see, but I'm probably toast. Still have the fingers crossed though.

Yea they have stated they will be pretty solid on those sysreq's. Also if all else fails, and you have tried every solution you see on the forum you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with your problems, they are trying to work through all the issues.

Could someone who has recieved a confirmation code message please post exactly who is was from and what the topic was, so that I will be less stressed as I delete e-mail.
