    You can help more by emailing Mes with the locations of the bugged houses than by re-opening this topic.

    Not really. I got better results bringing it up every year here on Stratics when they did Return to Brit (they finally fixed them) than I ever did mailing bugged house locations to Mesanna (still standing after years)...

    I've actually had better luck with sending the locations. But I can see how bringing it up on stratics may help, maybe once or twice within a certain time-span. But re-opening the topic very day the other one gets locked? Nah.

    True, but at least he's trying to get the game cleaned up/fixed. People fought back hard over the RTB issue too because they didn't want to lose their free houses so it doesn't surprise me folks constantly derail his threads and get them locked.

    Can I just ask why it matters? Is a RTB blocking a castle placement or something for you? Not sure how it hurts gameplay and is worth talking about other then that..

    OCD I think. :p

    Though I somehow think that remaking locked threads again probably won't take this very far.

    More like it's blocking castle placement for hundreds of people who still PAY and bother to PLAY UO after all these years. Like the guy in fel on Pacific who lives in an 18 x 18 who pays 10-15 a month when there is a castle next door that hasn't been used or paid for since 1998. Or the Luna houses that haven't been used for years. A LOT of people have houses in this game just waiting for a neighbors house to fall to upgrade. How is it fair to them if a bug is keeping them from ever falling? So yeah, it negatively effects a lot of people who have stuck with the game where others have quit, so that is why it matters.

    You can pretty much place a keep or get one given to you on just about any shard minus ATL..I was just curious why the OP is SOOO dead set on getting RTB decay turned back on? And when Did they say it was turned off? And because you never see anyone there doesn't mean it isn't paid for..I've had a house on Lake Superior for like 10 years now and I've almost NEVER have gone to it once it was placed, its a grandfathered house and it's completely naked..I just think it's a silly topic considering the multiple other things that still need to be fixed! We aren't having a HUGE real estate issue, therefore if it is still bugged its probably on the bottom of the list of fixes ATM

    THP did you ever try to send in the coordinates? Please at least do it...
    I am with you that the bugged houses should be deleted, but i cant see it happen by posting this over and over again - at east in this form and on this section.
    Report it as a bug please at http://stratics.com/community/forums/bug-tracking.710/ if you not allready did it so it gets monitored by the Dev's and in the possible fix list.

    To all you other guys: THP loves to IDOC, collect and hunt for houses - this is his gameplay-style - he just likes it, as we like to hunt for artifacts, etc.. pls stay cool ;)

    yes i have...i dont think u guys/gals know how seroiusly widespread these bugged/ unused houses are...LOL...its not just the no name /no owner ones.....they are just a small proportion of the bugged ones left standing....and iam not talkng about the odd house in the wilderness ....there heaps of them....i can show u luna ,keeps ,castles,1818s that have never been paid for [or] used for years....jesus....The DEVS started the rot...why cant they finish the job.....u folks asked for it...sooooo dont start getting cold feet now......let the devs finish the job and just leave the paid for houses standing...albiet u pay monthly or every 90 days for your houses ..they are still paid for!!!!!

    hey i cant report to Mesanna all ++50 houses per shard...that would be silly...better on here to get some action like we did with the RTBs

    You have zero way of knowing if those houses are bugged. As people have said here they could simply be grandfathered houses. I had 3 houses on LS that went 100% unused for like 8 years because I moved to siege, but had them all grandfathered on my friends account. They stood completely unused, nothing changed inside, and no one ever went to them. It's a much simpler and more reasonable explanation.

    It's a question of priorities. How long do you think it would take to locate all the houses that aren't recorded in the houses database? Because that's why those houses haven't fallen - they're off the radar.
    You know how small the team is. You know they're still working on new stuff for publishes, plus the theme pack Mesanna told us about.
    Where do you think they're going to find the time to go look for these houses that are such a thorn in your side?
    Have you ever tried 'following' the team on here so that you can see when they're online? I have. By my estimation they appear to work a hell of a lot more hours than most people I know. 9 - 5 in the office, go home and work some more. Often on line, and reading boards, at silly O'clock in the morning too.
    Please be reasonable about what you expect the team to do and please do not re-open locked threads
