This feature includes some awesome new tech, and it needs to be tested thoroughly to make sure it provides a good user experience for you. We've ran across some wrinkles on the back end which need ironing before we can show you the awesomeness that is The Foundry (Beta) for Star Trek Online. We want you all to have a great experience when making your episodes, and we believe it's worth the wait to be able to provide that.
I'm fairly certain once this goes to Tribble, you'll agree.
Understandable that this would take quite some time. Preferrably, I would say keep the Foundry AWAY from the test/live servers until it's been perfected as much as possible on your end.
On a related note: Is the intent of the Foundry, to relieve some of the burdon of "content creation" from your own developers, and move said burdon over to your subscribers instead?
