According to UOHerald notice (UHall) and a bit from Cal in the sticky thread here ... your shard will be moving back to Australia! Therefore, if I understand that notice, your shard will be offline for an extended period while the move is done. I tried playing Oceania a bit but East Coast US to your land made things really difficult - like Mongbats killing my characters? Ping was bad then. I have since retired but have watched this forum and UHall about Oceania closely. Congratulations and I do sincerely hope that when the shard is back, you'll have all the best of times on it. Toodles! I got a couple other world forums to cover during my lunch break!
