I wonder if these will ever be taken down.
Oh they are suppose to be taking them down anytime now.
Of course they've been saying that forever though.
Jeremy stated they would be done over a period of time. Dunno why it's taking this long.
They want us to do the dirty work of getting the coordinates of each house, then you send the coords to collection email or the like. Which I think is BS, since they put them up anyways.
Although at the same time, I got bored last time before I quit UO (notice here I am back) and went all over adding them as UOAM files, and when I stopped I had logged somewhere around 600 or more of these, and had barely covered 1/3 of the Trammel map, let alone Fel.
I'd have to find that article again, but like i say, they want you to do the legwork before they take part.
Good luck on that too.

We went and wrote down all of them and there were less than 200.
I think we pointed out that last time you made the "600" claim....
Well, I don't remember ever posting a response or talking to anyone about this, so I'm not sure when it was "pointed out that last time I made the "600" claim...." but when I ran around collecting the coords 1.75-2 years ago, with point of interest markers on my UOAM map, I had fields of red markers so thick I had to pan down to almost ground to see individual houses. . .but I guess you're free to think what you want, and just maybe some have been removed in the almost 2 years since I quit and started playing again. . .
No, I'm free to remember when we actually counted the houses about 18 months ago, someone stated the EXACT same bogus "600" number, and stated they did their counting the the EXACT same way you say you did.
If it wasn't you, then you must have an identical twin making the same erroneous statements as you at almost the exact same time you claim to have left UO. I see feathers and hear quacking.
By the way, I've never seen a dsfasfa house drop for any reason other than Silvani reducing one to a foundation (and it STILL didn't go away, it's just now a foundation, between Wind and Despise), and I catalogued mine by literally walking East/west strips, a screen wide, over the entire continent, coast to coast (or coast to mountain, then doing the same strip on the other side of the range - if I ran into a river, I teleported across it) then exploring the passes, islands and peninsulas that weren't doable by such strips.
Such numbers were counted by several people, with redundant checks, and each ended up with a quarter of the houses for the whole continent, you claim for 1/3 (granted, most of them ARE concentrated on the top 1/3 of the continent), within a variation of about 1-5 per person (which were resolved by T'Amon checking the lists against each other).
You sure you weren't counting all the houses in Trammel - or had multiple markers for every house? (UOAM doesn't replace one marker with another, after all, it just keeps stacking one on top the other if they are for the same location - I found that out entering SOS for a fishing trip).
