    From Wikipedia:

    Is there anything planned for this day this year? Maybe a good day for the vid to be released.

    February 12th is when the State of the Game was released last year I think.


    This one was supposed to be a month ago though <_<

    Not really sure how you relate a fansite chat with official videos?

    On that note though, its a big congratulations to Stratics and its IRC crew that they've kept this tradition alive for so long, despite the shifts in technology over the years.

    I've always had mixed feelings about the House of Commons, but overall they were a positive.

    And I should really hope that if they ever are going to release the video, they wouldn't wait for this anniversary to do so. It is an important and worthwhile anniversary but at this point nothing should delay the video that doesn't have to.

    If they still plan on releasing it it should be....Well, now.

    It was text, if it's the HoC I'm thinking of and not something different I was unaware of. IRC chat.

    As to a transcript: Well there was an archive at one point.

    Yeah the video really needs to be out as soon as possible.

    Final edits last week my ass. :/
     
  9. Treads very very carefully ...
    I don't believe that an "interactive text based chat" ... is sufficiently "modern"
    in this day of Youtube and Facebook ...
    to serve as a "proper medium" for an exchange of thoughts and ideas ...

    or they blew the IRC budget getting an intern up to speed on editing a scripted Youtube video ...

    *tip toes away* ... :danceb:

    Would be interesting if its still there. But I doubt it...much was lost during the two big server deaths of Stratics...though thankfully UOS escaped both relatively unharmed.

    Many thanks to those who located the transcript archive.

    Here, then, is the transcript of the first HoC!

    omfg, the killing irony of the very first UOHOC question:

    '

    Proof that nothing is ever solved in this game, issues merely change.

    Yes I mean that to be partly critical, but also to be affectionate.

    And the ironies continue....

    Topic 1: non-US players
    Topic 2: Lag
    Topic 3: cheaters
    Topic 4: issues with server lines
    Topic 5: House Security
    Topic 6: Necromancy
    Topic 7: Events and rewards
    Topic 8: Invasions
    Topic 9: Quests and player-run content
    Topic 10: Seer quest plots vs. main plot
    Topic 11:

    I stopped there.

    Oh my. I know this sounds like a criticism but I'm smiling for some reason......What's new is old and what's old is new, and for both better and worse we're all still here and the game is still fun.
