Patch 3.3.5: Servers coming online

It looks like the long wait may be over, as US servers appear to be slowly coming back online from a lengthy extended maintenance. For now the list of servers up is small, and there's been no official confirmation from Blizzard as to whether or not the downtime is over -- however most servers that are up and live are experiencing queues in the thousands and are locked from further character creation at this time. We'll update this post when the servers are officially back up and running -- until then, why not check out the Tuesday Morning Post for reading material you may have missed?

Update #1
: The official Warcraft Twitter just noted the following:
#WoWInfo - We are continuing the process of marking realms live. We will provide an update on our progress at approximately 7:00PM PDT.
Also, all servers that are currently live appear to be locked.

Update #2, 7:21PDT: The official Warcraft Twitter just noted the following:
#WoWInfo - We anticipate all remaining realms will be brought online within the next hour and appreciate your ongoing patience.
