As a lot of you already know, I haven't been on UO in months due to computer troubles. My guild P0O had near 80 active thieves when I left, and is now down to around 30. I've done some x-sharding and have seen the low thief communities on other shards. Atlantic has the largest thief community of all shards, and when I get back on UO (hopefully this week) I'll try to get our numbers even higher. Here is my suggestion. One thief guild spanning across all production shards, connected through one teamspeak or vent server. It will soon become almost like a requirement for new PvP thieves to join the massive guild. Not only that, but I think it would attract more to the class, reviving it on some shards. The point of this multi-shard guild would be to help each other plan steals, share ideas, and attract new thieves. Imagine the eventually massive vent or TS. A channel for each shard, each with sub-channels for different thief classes (persuasion, spawn, etc.). Also, a general discussion channel, so that thieves from all across UO can hang out and talk about ideas, brag about steals, etc. If you have a question about something, pop over into another channel and ask a thief you normally would have never met. Sure, that is basically what this forum is for, right? But imagine being on late at night, and rather than stealing by yourself, you can see what other thieves are on in all of UO, and hang out with them through a TS or vent server. It would add more excitement to the class for all shards. Of course, each shard will need a thief to create the guild, and be the GM of that shard. As far as a name goes, I'm not sure yet. I would say that we could just consider it P0O, but this would be a new guild entirely. New name, new shards, new everything. I'm open to name suggestions, and volunteer GMs. All I see on this forum, whenever there is anything to see, is arguing. With the declining thief population, I think it's about time we all merge into one massive community.
