    I'm still missing my Tameable Animals page on Stratics since the switch over. Can ETA on when you guys will get this stuff sorted out? The link for the page I'm referring to is:

    http://uo.stratics.com/content/skills/anim.php

    But I know there are other UO pages and resources we've used through the years which are missing as well.

    It would be a nice start if the General News on the main page actually reflected something current. I know who was responsible for that in the past, and I wish someone would 'step up to the plate'.
    As for the informational resources, OMG where to begin. Yes taming! And both web based BOD pages, Tailoring and Smitty.
    Most of my favorites in IE for UO are now broken.
    I still have a counselor in Jail #1 on ATL who's Character Profile reads as follows:

    Hello Travelers!
    My name is Counselor Zephyrus
    I am here to help you on your
    journey and answer questions you may have along the way.
    Some excellent pages on UO are:
    www.owo.com
    uo.stratics.com

    The last part is close to useless now. owo doesn't exist any more and most of uo.stratics is FUBAR.
    I second this question and ask please, can we get the content back?

    I imagine the powers that be are doing everything they can to avoid the dreaded "manual entry", but they aren't talking much about the technical side of the migration.

    Yes, a good source of information. But not nearly as in depth as what's locked up somewhere out there on the InterWeb.
    I have been watching the Known Issues Update, I just don't see chunks of content returning.

    Those cannot return as most of the links were broken when they moved the servers. Honestly I would seek some alternative as the amount of work it would take to fix the stratics pages is not something can can be done in short order. I would much rather they fix some of the older content pages before doing all these other improvements, but that's not up to me. To me those pages were much more important.

    I am sure it will be fixed after all those premium features they talked about in the State of Stratics are implemented.

    <sarcasm> Yes, right after this most important User Title Banner Thingy update yesterday... I am so really very utterly happy to have this title right beside my user name now! ... </sarcasm>

    ... *goes back checking if the UOHerald Archive or the Search is alive*

    I'd take the hunters guide etc. before all of those things they talked about, but that is the reason I came to Stratics and since I still see people asking about it I guess I am not the only one.

    I love UO Guide, but it doesn't have the interactive tameable animals page that Stratics had.

    A choice had to be made - spend the time and limited resources to fix the older part of uo.stratics, or maintain what was migrated and put the time and limited resources to the development of the new stratics where everything will be in one place.
    The choice is to get the new site up, populate the information there, and launch it as soon as we possibly can.

    I'm sorry folks, but please extend some patience to us while we get it done.

    I think I'm the only tamer in UO that hasn't tamed a GD...nor has an desire to do so. I wish I was an elf because I'd like to go tame some more Cu's :(
