    Well thankyou for the gifts..but what about a Real collection....and i dont mean silly amounts of coloured boxes in the 100s per set....... or candle trays in the 50s with slight shade differences....they are so hard to tell apart it makes your eyes bleed......i mean a old school collection like the named snowglobes were ......read this...and digest...

    people will reopen old accounts to get more xmas items to try get the set made as well as swop/trade more accounts...its easy money you are throwing away devs...think man think !!!....get it right next time please....think!!!

    yes people will troll the post but it makes common sense to get the UO coffers fuller and save our game for another month extra...

    Does the world really need another "my opinion is common sense" post?

    I'm almost in the mood to take this post apart, piece by piece.... Just not quite ready to lower myself to that level....
    Suffice it to say: Get a life!

    Well, globes would be nice too. Just saying they would.
    Just think how this set of box shapes would look in neon! Maybe it is very hard to do.

    More important to me is why was the most important dev name not on the dinners. Is she ok? ( I am sneaking this in every chance I get, I am really worried about her :(

    yes troll army start with the normal...'' ungratefull sod posts''....but u know iam right ...u all bloody do..but yes get out of general chat upsetting everyone..get of of facebook abusiing everyone...and get on my back again....i love it!!!.....especailly when i speak the truth and the truth hurts when u hear it.....just hope the devs will finaly listen up .[end]...

    I knew I spoke too soon.... I just can't refrain.
    Could you kindly explain exactly what revenue the dev team would have made (ie. whose "coffers" would be "fuller")?
    Oh, and btw, whenever you notice a squiggle red line under one of your "words" - all it takes is a single right/click to make your posts more comprehensible....

    I have to admit I do miss the days of collecting and trading to get the holiday items needed for the "set"
    I also miss getting the deeds to click and choose my present (ie: statue or snowglobe)
    I do appreciate the gifts though. The tub with the lil shower is cute and the boxes are fun colors.
    Still searching for my Mesanna lobster though! I suppose the Dark Lady cooks for no one! :p

    yes stop the trollers trolling would be simple

    its not common sense..its quite franky bloody obvoius that old school holiday traders would reopen several accounts at holiday times to get the nice gift collections... theres nothing to collect this year...so nobody will bother...lost revenue again!!!! .....easy maths.... opening new accounts would mean extra revenue in EAs coffers.....its not rocket science!!...LOL...

    over to the trolls.....

    I disagree, most 'holiday traders' will get full sets by trading with other people, not by opening closed accounts. That's the whole point of trading, surely?
    I could be wrong of course, I don't collect sets and I don't have any closed accounts to open.
