    Stratics has a long history, many of you have been here since the beginning. It's time you were recognized for your dedication. Soon many of you will notice something different among many of our members.

    Members with 5 years active on a forum account will receive a Veteran Member Banner under their forum name.

    Members with 10 years active on a forum account will receive an Ancient Member Banner under their forum name.

    Members with 15 years active on a forum account will receive a Legendary Member Banner under their forum name.

    This is just a small way in which we can thank you for being a part of the Stratics family.

    Give yourselves a hand, you've all earned it.

    I'm.. not entirely sure being described as "ancient" is a complimentary thing. Haha.

    When the banners start appearing they are color coded.

    Veteran Members will have a Silver Banner
    Ancient Members will have a Gold Banner
    Legendary Members will have a Black Banner

    I never bothered to get mine back then either, seemed a bit too much hassle at the time, and I wasn't really fussed on the 'ego' title for number of posts I had. Not sure when this account is from, it was when they went from one system to another, the old beige stratics to the black one when everyone 'lost' their posts and had to manually ask for the post stuff to be dragged over.

    Since a number of people disliked "Ancient" we've decided to alter it. Now it's only a 5 and 10 year system for the time being. People with 10 Years now receive the Legendary Banner.

    Where do we find out about the other banners? I was looking to see what this "legend" banner referenced, I always felt like I was a legend but I didn't think other people could read my mind....till now anyways:)

    Oh I got that one too, I love it :p
    I believe it is messed up, because none of us seem to earn it. My profile say April 12, 2001, that's not 15 years unless they found some older info in some of the old forum backup.

    I lurked for awhile, created my first account in 2005, when I was signed on as a reporter I made this account almost 1 year later. LarisaBTH is still in the database though but some of my older posts were lost :/

    Good to see such an awesome community after all these years :)

    I still want to see a banner for banned people even if they only get to wear it while banned, just to let other folks you haven't drowned in a pool of your own vomit.

    [Edit: stratch that, it updated, lol, 1 year away from 15, heh!]

    btw, nice to see Stratics still going :)

    (whatever happened to old post counts, mine was originally in the many thousands. Board upgrade i guess?)

    There was a server migration a few years ago that wiped out everyones post counts, that's why sometimes you can find posts that when you click on the person who wrote it's profile it says they have 0 posts, even though you are looking at their post lol.

    For a while Petra was fixing post counts if you had any sort of idea of what your count was/screenshots of the forum from before the migration/etc. buuuut Petra is gone now.

    Where did she go? Why did she go? Will she be back? Who will write all the new guides? Is Norrington really her secret ******* child that was locked in her basement?

    Petra has "retired" from Stratics, but is still a member of our UO community. She does post and check in from time to time.

    Right now, we have several people working on guides. This includes Oscar the Grouch, Lord Gareth, Larisa and myself with others contributing. :) Actually, Oscar the Grouch is working on a VvV guide while Lord Gareth is tweaking the 2014 EM drops. Larisa is still getting her feet wet as an Editor (she has recently decided to volunteer in that capacity) and I'm working on migrating _everything_ into a new, more-user-friendly interface.

    We are busy!

    Insofar as Norrington.... you will have to ask Petra yourself! :D

    "Retired"?

    ROFL...

    I think you're the only one believing that story. Sorry.

    BTW: I'm waiting on a post from "the new boss", what his plans are and what he's going to do with Stratics. Just "buying" isn't gonna kick the bucket, if you know what I mean...

    I dunno, but that's what Petra told me herself... and as for what the new Boss wants?



    He did an address where he touched on his plans a couple weeks ago.

    If you haven't yet Medea, check out the State of Stratics Address


    Also Nexus is correct, our current staff is busy at work always getting new content to you in a timely manner.

    I have already written a guide for the Treasures of Doom and am currently in the process of writing one for the new Huntmasters Challenge coming soon with publish 88.

    Don't worry...we got ya covered :)
