    How many Chesapeake players (who read Stratics, obviously) are still active ? It seems to be extremely quiet these days, with not much happening outside of one major guild.

    If you're still playing, please say "aye" (or anything else you want to say).

    Aye.

    I definitely agree with you though... seems like it is quite a bit emptier today than it was a few months ago.

    I pop in on occasion but it's way to close to being a ghost town these days.

    Glad you still check in... but the ghost town atmosphere does seem to apply lately. :sad3:

    I was playing after work the other day, Monday, I think and it was SHOCKINGLY full. I say shockingly full, because after work for me is noon or 1PM or so for the East Coast USA; and there seemed to be about a dozen people actively doing stuff.

    Have to leave myself a note to pop in for the white net toss next week Monday June 1st that Whiterabbit posted. See how many show up.

    What outside systems are used to talk to other UO players these days?

    Usually ICQ. There are a few Ventillo or Mumble servers around but those are more social.

    I stopped using ICQ some years ago when they had some security problems. They get that taken care of?

    I believe so, and never a problem on my end. I don't like their client though - it's a resource hog. Instead I use Pidgin (http://pidgin.im) which is an open source Trillian clone. It lets you use ICQ, plus any other random services (at least one Chessie player still uses AIM instead :p), plus a whole library of plugins, and it's both far friendlier and far less memory/processor hoggish. :)

    I used Trillian for years, to run AIM ... :p Up until returning to UO last December.

    Going to need to hunt for my ICQ info if it's the UO system of choice and get WIN 7 & 8.1 software for Trillian. The XP version was proving a bit cranky on the newer OS setups. Wouldn't even run last time I did a reinstall.

    I use Pidgin too - never had any issues with it.

    Certainly has an easier to put up with licensing agreement than Trillian does.

    I used Pidgin for a while but Trillian seems to work better for mass messaging.

    I mostly only log in to let everyone know how I feel about them.

    I wanted something I can read more easily than the game text scrolling by, eyes are getting old, and has the plus I can scroll back and see what was said if I was busy trying to not wind up in somethings stomach when it got said.

    I got rid of all my pigeons years ago -- both the feathered and non-feathered kinds. :eyes:

    Did you eat them or give them away? Pigeon tastes nice.

    Gave them away, of course, when I could no longer keep them. I would never have been able to eat them. They were so trusting and too beautiful.
