The news is this ... recovery is completed and being set up so that Stratics can FTP the stuff back "home". Also it's being sent on external HD as well. 1. These forums ... or at least the format ... will be staying. 2. Merging the old user database and the current one and integrating the old posts will take a while longer. Please remember - Stratics supports a LOT more than just UO. While we are certainly dedicated to the game, others are just as dedicated and antsy to see their stuff back. But at least we aren't any more, are we?
