Written in the Senate report on the official SWG Forums:
(NEW) How do we re-build "community"?, by Khristen: A discussion is started asking what the players can do to rebuild the game community to higher levels. A stronger sense of community is often cited as reasons why SWG is "not as good as it used to be". The Senators evaluate the reasons why community is not as strong now, in particular the decentralization of player "hot spots" and the fact that some players just don't want to rebuild the community because they would rather complain about the game. Thunderheart also joins in on the discussion.
So you want us old Vet's back huh? Well here are our terms!
1- Return to the Pre-CU. If this means leaving the current Servers as NGE Servers and opening up the old Japanese servers with Pre-CU code, fine. BTW, You will have to develop for the Pre-CU. The NGE would either stop development or be developed in tandem with the Pre-CU servers.
2- Either a refund of our time lost on our subscriptions that we lost do to the NGE or having that time lost added to a subscription to the Pre-CU.
3- We paid and Beta tested their game for a long time, we want an additional 3 free months of Pre-CU.
4- An apology, a real apology where Smed and the head developers, who were responsible for the NGE, either resign or remove themselves from all development decisions with regard to SWG.
That is what SOE has to do to get us back. We have not budged and will not until all 4 terms are met. SOE You want us, well then it is time you start taking our demands into consideration!
