    How come you never report on important stuff like when the events are going to take place? Can't you work with the EMs to make the great lakes community of things that more than 4 people are interested in?

    *Note to whom it may concern: As you can see this is a serious question.*

    Well, this is a loaded question for sure.

    First let me start out by saying that I have never reported on something only "4 people are interested in ".
    Player run events which I assume this is what you are referring to is the true backbone of Great Lakes and always has been since I started playing over ten years ago.

    You yourself may not be interested in these small events and small happenings but others are.
    This may sounds cheesy but I also try to give everyone their 15 minutes of fame in the realm.
    It is the active player and the people behind the avatar that makes Great Lakes so great IMO.
    With that said I wish you would have addressed this on another thread as this is on a Questionnaire by a single player. I prefer not taking away possible reply , and conversation about COCOPUFF's but that it out of my control by your post here.

    I would also like to take the time to address your statement "As you can see this is a serious question".

    As most of us know many months Stratics boards went down for months and were reformated. In this downtown many board posters stopped posting and replying on threads. This has had a good and bad outcome. Many of the flamers and board warriors have moved on and it has made these boards a more mature place, though less active.

    With that said I must admit though your replys are often boarderline mean spirited ( and not serious ) I OFTEN enjoy and laugh at them. It is nice to have you here.

    Over the years as a reporter I have grown a thick skin but still do not care for it when I am attacked about my volunteer job here. We all have lives away from the computer and away from UO as do I.

    I have been the only long running active GL reporter during the past eight years. We have had some wonderful reporters but most stay a year or less, that is just the nature of the beast. I report on what I see, what interests me during the time I am in the realm. That is my style.
    Different reporters have different styles and mine is more of human interest.

    If one is looking about information on the next patch, the next major event there is UOHall and other avenues.

    Your statement makes it sound as though I have never reported on a EM event which is not the case, just scroll back a bit. We do have another GL reporter at this time and recently she has reported on EM events and she is active in the RP community also. She likes reporting on the role play community and that is her interest which is different than mine, though I have reported on the RP community and RP events in the past.

    Any upcoming event that is sent to Great Lakes Stratics or directly to me gets posted in the News. I have addressed this issue recently about the EM sending upcoming event information to me to post and it has not happened, that is something I cannot control.

    I hope this has answered your question. :eyes:

    Michelle.. I love you!


     
  8. not to nag or anything but spellcheck/grammer check thank you :D

    and heres some suggestions for future questionaires.

    1) don't always interview the largest bank sitters
    2) take a chance and attempt interviews with hardcore fellucians
    3) take the time to conduct interviews with newbies and see what makes them tick. why did you join uo? what makes you want to play? why don't you cheat? etc.
    4) be more random about your picks (sums up the last 3)
    5) what happened to establishment interviews? interview a guild/establishment and see what ALL members have to say instead of just 1 or two.

    Those are the things people are interested in.

    EDIT:

    just got done reading the interview. I'll be honest. There was no heart in any of his responses and I see where Lynks coming from. End.

    I'm sorry, that was kind of boring to read, and most of your questionaires are at least humorous or give a reader some sort of emotion other than sitting here with a blank stare. Whew, holy run on sentance. And I sat here and read every word. Does nobody really read the news or post anymore? What's going on with the world! Is spring and summer coming in and taking away all the players?

    I really don't mean to be sounding like a ***** or to be rude, I'm just shocked I guess.

    Happy playing.. lol.

    grammar is spelled like this not this (grammer)
     
  14. A week to catch that huh. I could have sworn I spelt it with an "a" but alas, I'm not perfect.

    I was just pointing out that her entire 3 or 4 bodies of paragrahs ranting towards Lynk were inconsistent, filled with typos and apparently no periods. Apparently she has since then edited her rough draft after a days revision.

    Mirage, you don't sport around in over rated armor purchased from moi :thumbsup:

    Theres a line from being professional and just plain stupid with too much purchased gold.

    Ummm, you have me confused with another Mirage I suppose. I'm wearing all I have, and have 133,000 gold in the bank. is there anyone who even would sell 133,000 gold to someone?

  16. Mirage, if you are the one who just returned and one of Hearts Desires' friends, then yes you did meet me (shinobi).

    So where did you come up with the stupid and purchased too much gold comment? That's why you must be talking about another Mirage.
