They don't have to send you a "sorry we didn't accept you" letter, they just won't send you anything at all.
Evidence, or it didn't happen, dude.

Yeah, but it shouldn't be too hard for WotC's legal ninjae to write a reasonable agreement that also lets you play with your son, or with your luddite gaming group, or with more than 5 characters, or with a modified adventure that includes a different plotline, without violating it. No copies, no derivatives, must be signed up to WotC's site...that seems to be what we're ACTUALLY agreeing to, whether or not we have any intention of upholding that agreement.Originally Posted by mudbunny
I mean, maybe it is too hard for them to write an agreement like that (in reality) but it probably shouldn't be (in the impossible world where everything makes sense).

D&D Next team, who want to get this into as many hands as possible, and a legal team that is uber-paranoid and wanting to (as is their job) protect the IP (and WotC and Hasbro) legally as much as possible.
I *suspect* (with no evidence whatsoever) that in a week or two, some of the restrictions will be lifted.
As for kids, while they cannot enter into legal contracts themselves, I believe (and IANAL) that legal precedent states that the parents can enter into contracts *for* them. (Again, I am not a lawyer, and I am *very* fuzzy on this.)

WotC's over-corporatization of the entire process is a barrier to playtesting (and rather typical of the company). When Paizo playtested Pathfinder, it was a simple process: sign up and download. WotC's treatment of their IP post-OGL makes me think of a greedy, paranoid troll hunched over a pot of soup, certain that someone is going to dip a spoon in.
When you're treating your game like Kevin Siembieda treats his, you may need to rethink your approach.

1) Sign up in indicate interest
2) Wait for email
3) Click link in email and go to website that requires you to sign up for the forums on that site
4) Wait for second email
5) Click second email
6) That doesn't work for hours and hours and hours, sometimes even after the web people say it should work fine
7) Post a trouble call and wait for third email
8) After third email, finally get documents.
With Pathfinder it was literally two steps.
1) Sign up on Paizo's website which redirected immediately after submission
2) Download documents from the redirected page
