    Anyone else notice that players on a co-owner account can double click and remove stone walls, floors etc - as well as manipulating them with the decorator tool! Guess you better really trust anyone you co-own and ask them to check any decorating tool at the door.

    That's not good. I would hope it would be that if the co-owner placed it - otherwise it would behave like any item house owner placed can't be altered by co-owners deal

    Wow....you're right...I just tested it....

    @Kyronix not sure how this slipped by the testing phase but it's not good.

    I would hope that most people trust the people they have co-owned to their house but you just never know.

    If you don't trust someone, don't co-own them.

    Would you give a key to your real life home to someone you didn't trust?

    Perhaps trust wasn't the best word - not so much of a trust issue as a warning of an inconsistency. We have multiple levels of security on containers and teleporters (e.g. owner, co-owner, friend, etc.) - so I found it odd that stone wall placement skipped this model.

    I trust myself as an owner in my own house but while decorating I have accidentally double clicked on floor tiles and had them go missing. I just thought it was odd since co-owners can't customize my house or unlock other items, yet they can unlock my walls, floors and manipulate them with a decorators tool.

    Co owners can also axe certain items even if they didnt place them. This includes but is not limited to : Guildstones, Gozas, simple deco deeds (forges, ovens) and probably a bit more that im forgetting. With that, there has literally only been one person in my entire UO career that I have trusted enough to Co-Own. #trustissues. :)

    A co owner could absolutely ruin a house if they flipped a switch...

    I like the rule: if a friend/co owner didnt place/lockdown/secure an item he cant remove, change security, or unlock said item. I wish it applied to all items the same.

    Considering that only my own accounts get Co-owned ever this doesn't really effect me... but sure why not.

    I'd like to have more than 10 on the co-owner list. But that's me.

    Friends should NEVER be allowed to remove things.

    Yeah I am hoping for a fix to this. I made a huge shelving system for my neon gift boxes... and well, my husband who is rather click happy, hit a few of the floor tiles by trying to double click the bags. Shelves ruined... Maybe I should just remove him from co owner! That will make a fun dinner conversation =D
