Official Forums Now Read-Only
Quote from: Nethaera (Source)
All forums on the official World of Warcraft forums will be temporarily switched over to read-only mode. While we would like to make every effort to ensure the forums allow the community to interact with each other, the current situation does not allow for this, or allow Blizzard to relay information to the community. Thus, all forums will be available as read-only to allow us to share information with the public. We hope that we can keep the limitation of access to a minimum and revert the forums to full functionality as soon as possible.

As a reminder, there are midnight signings across the United States and Europe in multiple locations, where you can find Blizzard employees waiting for fans to come in and purchase/pick up their copy of Wrath. We don't have a list of who is where, but I hear a rumor that Mike Morhaime is at the New York signing, so if you'd like to meet the CEO of Blizzard and maybe get your Collectors Edition (or standard) signed by him, that's likely the place to go. Here's a full list of the midnight signings:United States
