Fan site manager beta testEdit

As many of you know Atari is having a couple of different Beta Tests for NWN2. I've had lots of requests from pretty much all corners of the earth to get people in. Just as an FYI its a closed Beta that they are managing directly

However, here is what the community team has been able to secure as a thank you for the community support thus far. I will secure one Beta toolset slot for each Persistent World and Fansite that has taken the time to send in and get your site listed on NWN2.com prior to August 1st. In short that's around 100 slots for the different fan communities.

What I need from each site is as follows: site name, site URL, the designated recipient (AKA site manager) and their email. I need to know real names not online handles. Know that each person who participates in this will be put under NDA. please email me at nwn2@maverickpr.net with the title FANSITE BETA in the subject line. I will be compiling a list of the site managers or their designated recipients over the next few days to send to Atari so please don't delay in sending in your info.

Again, this is our way of saying thank you to the community. We know that there are lots of people who will be disappointed in that this is only available to site managers, but given the immensely small space in the toolset beta we feel we are very fortunate just to get the slots that we did.

Thanks for your continued support!

-Shane
