    I am wondering what the status of the bank deco's of the recent contests was?

    I have seen a few posts in regards to some of them being done, Alas Sonoma's is not one of these...

    Any news would be fun... i personaly would love to see these finished and a new contest started...
    thanks
    Lord Sir Scott

    Nothing on Catskills unless they did it last night while I was asleep. But I doubt it.

    I heard they canceled the other banks because of all the complaining about the Atlantic bank deco.

    I sincerely hope not. That would just be &*%ed up that some whiners can ruin this cool thing here for everyone on almost every shard.

    He is just a troll. Forget him. Its not our problem some people on Atlantic go ON and ON about how they were councilors or Seers or what not and think they should be "Special"

    The ones that ran a recall the brit bank thread are just children who like to complain and rude.

    Trolling is prohibited.Trolling is whenever someone is clearly, deliberately posting in a manner for the purpose of angering and/or insulting the other participants of the board. Trolling DOES NOT encourage further discussion in the long run, it only encourages personal attacks (if left unchecked).

    Oh yeah... and chill. I believe the banks are being redone on personal time/when time allows.

    To the bank bashers. EA promised things in game will change. Next time enter. *grumbles as only an old man can*

    Ooo they should give a discord bonus based on character age LOL! :D

    @ Others: Draconi's doing these personally, sure it'd be nice if they were done, but the fact that we're even getting these is rather amazing. Certainly as heck wouldn't have happened under any other dev team. Meh, what's another month? Am not playing UO just to see Brit bank decoed; it's just a bonus.

    there's a difference between rumors and information, and the crew around here will be very quick to point that out, Mir, so it might be wise to correctly label your statements :)

    and yes, Miner, I'd prefer to wait until they can place plants and such without having them fall thru the floor :D

    No no Mir, it's just that when asked if you could provide a Link or a Quote about it all you simply responded with was

    "yeah"

    Not exactly a very good reply if you can't post a link or a quote.

    I don't mean to offend anyone but i'm on Atlantic (i just started playing again after being gone for 4 or 5 years) and I think the bank looks ugly.

    I liked the way the bank looked before...it's ugly now...why exactly is there a flowing river on top of Britian bank?

    Well i also agree brit bank on atl is an eye sore! sorry to the winner its cool, but the whole look is just out of place in brit. Were it yew i would like it alot more, to much like a park that should be in the woods not in center of uo civilization oh wait that LUNA. One thing i wish would be that the winners had thought to include an arcane circle at the banks. Perhaps then there would be more draw to brit bank. Or perhaps if they stated a requirement of a circle.

    It's like repeating something with no authority or reference from a reliable source. To do so without reference or authority would be considered more along the lines of gossiping. So yes, I wouldn't call what you've posted a troll. Not at all.

    At best, you're a gossip and/or rumourmonger.

    This post, on the other hand, may be considered an example of a troll, if it riles the masses to the point where the mod/mods will deem it necessary to lock it or whatever it is that mods do, do. :D

    I just ran over to Atlantic's bank, and... yikes.

    Still, different strokes and all that.

    I didn't think Atlantic's bank looked too bad. I do find it a bit odd that a river flows out of nowhere off the top of the bank, but then I magically teleport myself halfway across the world to a cave full of dragons which I run into and attempt to befriend a giant fire breathing lizard by saying a few kind words to it and following it around, and realize that logic is somewhat ethereal in UO.

    Well design is a form of art, and like any art you will have people who love it and will hate it.

    Visually, I find the top of the bank distracting... which leads the bank as awhole looking quite ugly. Still,that's just my lone opinion.

    It doesn't mean anything in the long run. It's there, that's the winning design. Someone not liking the final design shouldn't be a slight to the designer as a person.

    I also heard they were canceling the rest of the banks.

    also, SA will be out this year

    And we will all be able to ride fluffy bunnies as a 12th year mount

    and and.... we'll be able to customize castles

    and and.....

    I think this might be an example of trolling

    I think what they're trying to say, Mir, is that unless you're willing to post a link to the site that stated this, or copy/paste an IM or PM, and name names of who said it, they don't think you should say anything. It could be considered gossip or a rumor even if you know the person or persons you heard it from was credible and simply wish to keep them out of it, since they didn't give you permission to bring them into a thread.

    If I hear any 'rumor' from anyone that I think people may not believe, I just don't post it. I wait, and if it turns out to be true and someone tells me, I just get to say, "Oh yeah, I heard about that like a month ago!" :D
     
  37. HEY! You leave me out of this discussion!

    I don't grumble... it's just a cold.
