IMHO while it would be nice ... it would no doubt creat a lot of difficulties due to charactor duplication and other items that would be moved with that duplication. IF we all had new toons that MIGHT be possible. But since that is not the case it would not be fair to transfer some .. and not the others.
(if that makes sense)
NOT transfering actually makes sense. Maybe they will see fit to throw a little "dilith" our way. Some of you deserve far more than someone like myself who was unable to log on for a while.
