@nilly why wait till 29th? many people have already stopped playing.
Overextended dates help prepare people that aren't ready to wipes just yet.
Trust me, theres still plenty of people who hate the wipe, and want to spend some time with their accounts before the items and fame is wiped off of it. Things can get emotional.
Also, you should try PMing. Its a great alternative to making topics directed at specific people.
