Bug type: Event Functionality

Brief bug summary: Characters created on or after September 13 can't World Leap, contrary to all web notices on eligibility.

More details:
The World Leap event was first announced in the Update Notes http://maplestory.nexon.net/news//24928/ posted August 18th.
Then in a separate "prepare" web notice: http://maplestory.nexon.net/news//25158/ posted September 12th.
And finally in an announcement http://maplestory.nexon.net/news//25272/ posted September 19th.
All of these announcements say the only date-related requirement for leaping is that the character be level 33 or higher before the event starts, on the 19th:
As long as your character is Lv. 33 or above before the event begins on September 19, they will be eligible to move to a new world.
However, in the notice posted on the 19th there was also a screenshot of Maple Admin's dialog

in which she states that character created after September 13th cannot transfer.
And, unfortunately, that is indeed the way the event is coded. People who created characters in the last week (for example, in order to take their cash inventory to the new world; the original Update Notes said that it would be transferred for non-Explorers, and only the "prepare" notice, on the 12th, said it wouldn't) cannot move them.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Be a character that was created after September 13, and reached level 33 before 5PM PDT on September 19.
2) Attempt to speak to NPC Mover to move to another world.
3) Observe that you are told you don't qualify.

    You didn't read the post thoroughly. The announcement that had been up from August 18 to September 18 never had any indication that characters had to be created prior to September 12th 8pm. It wasn't until September 19th that this was made apparent.

    It's not "stealth" if they put "[UPDATED]" in the notice title, and

    They did change the 19 to 13 in the paragraph above that, and didn't mark it as "updated". I suppose you could call that "stealthy."
    Still, they acknowledge that there was a discrepancy. Hopefully they'll also do something to help those Maplers leap if they still want to.
