WoWInterface is offering Legion Beta Invites to all of our active, registered authors

[Edit]: If you haven't already, check your accounts to see if you've been flagged yet. Don't count on an email showing up, check your account directly. A bunch of folks have been flagged today, 11 May 2016.


Hopefully Blizzard will be enabling AddOns in the Legion™ beta shortly. And as you can always count on, we’re taking care of you guys. We’re starting to submit author accounts to Blizzard so that you can have at least a few days to play before it’s time to get down to work on updating your AddOns.

This is not a contest! If you are an AddOn author that hosts with us and you have been keeping your AddOns current, you are eligible for a key!

Once they have been enabled and you get the chance to get your AddOn ready for beta testing in the expansion, upload it to our Legion™ beta download category and then be sure to check back in our Legion™ beta forums for possible feedback.

It is going to work a little bit differently this year, as Blizzard is handling it differently on their end. In previous years we would either send a list of email addresses to Blizzard and they would send you an email with the beta key for you to apply, or they would send us a bunch of keys which we would hand out. Instead, they are now enabling accounts directly. That means that this year we will have to ask you for your battlet.net email address, which we will then send to Blizzard and they will flag your account at their discretion. When they flag your account, they will send you an email giving you information letting you know. Alternately, you can watch for the flag on your account page on the Blizzard site. They typically flag accounts on Monday evenings, so we will be sending in our most recent list to them on Fridays. We'll post the number ranges when we have sent the list to Blizzard.

Let the fun begin! Sign up now for your Legion™ Beta key.

Rules:
  • You must have an active World of Warcraft account.
  • You must be an addon author with one or more files on the site that are current to 6.2.x (Compilations & "Hello world" or its equivalent do not count).
  • You must include your Battle.net email address. (It will be sent to Blizzard so your account can be flagged for beta).
  • Do not upload addons that are not your own. Anyone caught uploading someone else's work will be banned from the site. All AddOns submitted are manually checked.
  • Blizzard and WoWInterface reserve the right to deny anyone access.
  • Account must be registered before February 01, 2016.

Cairenn,

The email address I use for the game is not the same one I use here (or anywhere for that matter). Do I need to PM you so you can match me with my account here? No one else on the planet has my battle.net email address except Blizzard. Although I may have given it to you last time for beta access.

If you revisit the page after submitting your battle.net email address, you will see that your position in the "queue" is linked to your account here, but the email address you type in is what will be given to Blizzard. My battle.net email is not the same as that registered with this site either.

The registration page asks what your BNet email is. Just type it in there.

I use forwarders on my email server to control spam. Every online account I have has its own email address. Nobody has my real one.

Honestly, I started publishing my addons while WoWInterface was giving away WotLK keys. I was too late to get one, but I've been a part of the community since then.

Thank you for once again arranging this for us. I had one expansion completely hose my addons because I thought they'd be fine.

I don't see a que. I just see the tracking ID number and the instructions.

That's why I put "queue" in quotes. Your tracking number is your position on this list. When Cairenn submits emails to Blizzard, she'll say that she sent in numbers xxx - xxx.
