A few important announcements.
A field was added to everyone's profile to link to your ToS post. Please ensure you set the link to your ToS in your profile!!! Yes we had this before, but the new one is slightly different and everyone needs to update it. You can find it under modify profile/forum profile. I wanted to take a moment to thank all our paypal contributors. This is the first year we have reached our goal well before the end of the year. Thank You! Management positions are now open for the SWTOR Chapter (both factions). Please see this post for more info. The goal will be to have everything complete and set up so we can begin officially recruiting at least 1 month before launch. New Smileys!!

A few early risers have already spread the word here but I think this deserves it's own front page news bit! So, complete with all links, here is the original BioWare announcment.
BioWare and LucasArts are pleased to announce that Star Wars: The Old Republic will launch on December 20, 2011 in North America and on December 22, 2011 in the European Launch Territories! The announcement was first made by BioWare co-founders Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk during their keynote address at the 2011 Eurogamer Expo in London, England. Speaking to a packed room of press and fans alike, Dr. Muzyka acknowledged the weight of the moment and the patience of the fans.
“This is an incredible moment for everyone at BioWare and our partners at LucasArts who have dedicated their lives to build this extraordinary game. We appreciate the patience from the millions of fans who have been waiting for the game’s release.”

Here is a link to the article just in case anyone wants it (although it has been posted in some of our other SWTOR posts).
Also, I've put some SWTOR header images up in the Media Gallery under 'Gaming --> SWTOR' that I figured we could use for future SWTOR news. The images and their corresponding links can be found below.
