    Another head-scratcher here:

    Why are there so darn many cleanup officers, why are they of different races, and why are they located where they are if they ALL offer the same list of cleanup rewards?

    On Origin, you can find a male and a female cleanup officer of the following races and in the following locations:

    • Elves in Felucca New Magincia (on the docks and in the tavern).
    • Humans in Felucca Britain (outside the bank on the west side of town).
    • Elves in Trammel New Magincia (on the docks and in the tavern).
    • Humans in Trammel Britain (inside the bank lobby and in the bank's vault).
    • Elves in Trammel New Haven (outside the bank).
    • Gargoyles in Ter Mur (on the plaza outside the jeweler's shop and near the farmer's market).

    Very odd. But then again, perhaps not, given that they were all "unemployed" not so long ago. Why not hire 12 NPCs to do what two (one in Fel and one in Trammel) could probably do with their eyes closed? And whoever did the hiring certainly can't be accused of discriminating based on gender or race, right? Maybe the fact they hired 12 instead of just two also explains the skimpy reward list. Perhaps whoever is running this operation is having to pay too much of what is being made from recycling the turn-in items for salaries instead of providing more and better rewards!

    And if the cleanup officers are supposed to be in popular gathering spots, why was Luna overlooked? Could it mean Luna's not gonna be a good place to hang out in the near future or for however long there will be cleanup officers hanging around?

    Very good post !!!

    WE WANT ANSWERS !! hehe

    I also find it extreemly odd, at the most bening it could be symbolical of the way some companies hire 12 people to to one man's job while the poor little people work night shifts to afford a UO subscription... :gee:

    * No more unemployed people (and gargs :O) in UO. The new UO producer made that possible (?)
    * There will be never unemployees on luna. Even the laziest npc can just buy and resell whatever crap because people will just pay for it.

    Well could you see everyone going to the cleanup officer at Brit Bank (Tram) to claim thier rewards. Very few will use Fel because this stuff is not blessed and could be lost/taken. The lag alone from everyone going to one place could be a killer. It is nice they are located near banks so we can drop our stuff at the bank and go back to get more.
