    Listen to me. Probably some old players(may be old people, with all respect) cannot understand this little sacrifice for this progress.
    But this dialog as one of solution, that can be help all players from this shards.

    As we know all, all our items, account and all another belong to EA.
    And if in one day they decide to make changes, you won't be able to prevent it. Yes. we can leave the game and then somebody lose some money.
    But, my opinion, that our task as all UO community. It is help to them with creation this game better and also optimize , isn't it?

    We can create more powerful server together, and it will be able to compete with Atlantic. All our rares, castles, items, without people, which will come to this game - nothing. All our memorial places - nothing, if nobody see this.
    My idea - it is creation new server for this players with portal only from our shards. Players from another shards cannot come to this server during the time of the transfer(also creation of new characters won't work at the new server some time).
    Administration will make portal on one month or (three)two week (it can be work as transfer token) and all people can begin transfer. It will also solve a problem of dead houses - as dead shops in luna, because it is not good for invitations of new players.

    And variant for the name of the new server - New Era. =)

    With respect to administration and players,
    Cronus (shard Europa)

    P/s Apologize in advance if my English is not ideal.

    You want to destroy all our player towns, all our hard work to build up a 80+ guild alliances. All our shard history. All our house location we worked for all the years. And I can go on for lots more things. If you don't like your shard, YOU move. You are welcome on Drachenfels.

    Don't force US to move. You might loose a lot more then you think. If they FORCE me to move, I'm gone and UO will loose a lot more then me.

    So the Awnser is NO, NO NO!

    I would be in favor of this idea if those suggesting it were to volunteer their own shard to be shut down first.

    I like all shards and respect history any shard. And certainly i like shard where i play now.
    But more, I love this game, and I hope that this game will be evolve. Any stop for progress - oblivion...

    But with progress always lost something or something changes. This rule of evolution.

    Dude I don't want to rain on your parade, but I can see this topic closed very soon.

    It's just one of those things that have been overly discussed already.

    The developers have said many times they are not going to make new shards, and they are unable to program any type of "shard portal". Clearly you can see the Drachenfels people don't like this idea, please move on to a new topic already.

    Shards are not going to be amalgamated, you keep on wanting to destroy the history of the shard I play on the hope that it might maybe make the shard you want to play on busier - how many times need we say no to this before you get the message.

    You want a busier shard, play on one - they exist. Don't try take away what others have worked on and built.

    With all respect, but isn't necessary to specify that to do to me, ok?

    What program? Usually scripts. =)
    It can be work as transfer token. i cannot see problem in it.

    Guilds, house - it is all only cover, certainly, somebody afraid lose money. May be even real money...


    My friends, i dont want destroy your history, your houses or your guilds, i cannot understand who prevents you move all this on new ground?


    Why such big words?
    I already feel kind of invader who wants to destroy someone history...



    Probably, I think more globally. About game, but not about individual worlds...

    By programs, they meant that there is no technology that exists that they can use to make a shard portal. Computer programming simply does not work that way. Transfer tokens do not transfer your stuff from one shard to the other. What a transfer token does is it deletes everything you have on the first shard, then re-creates a completely new version of it on the second shard. It takes time to do, which is why they take 30 minutes usually.

    You say you don't want to destroy peoples houses, how do you expect them to move their houses from one shard to the other, when there will already be a house sitting in that spot on the destination shard.

    I asked you to stop obsessing on this, because by making this post you are actually breaking a Stratics rule. The rule is that people are not allowed to create the same thread after the original one has been locked. The original thread about this topic has been locked, therefore this one will also be locked when a moderator sees it.

    I have nothing against you, but I have not seen a single person post supporting your idea yet, so clearly not many people are interested in this idea.

    As has already been mentioned this is a topic that has already been closed - over and over and over again.
    The Developers have repeatedly said there is no intention to close or merge shards. Please take their word for it and stop stiring up this hornet's nest.
