    A trip down memory lane. Doese anyone else rember Ianstorm, UO Powergamers, or Ask the Axe man?

    Looked at them & the first two haven`t been visited for the most part since 2007. Won`t say much about the third because its a Black Sheep, & I`m suprised its still around.

    Kinda of sad the only sites left are Stratics, & uoforums. Doese anyone know of other active UO sites? & again prefer the non-black sheep.

    After looking at those. I`d say only 4 of those sites are really active. Two have already been mentioned, & the rest seem to be DEAD. To be active I`d say it should have posts or news that has been within the past 3 months.

    I never understood why you named the UO Travelogues & Adventurer's Guide site "Aschulze"....

    Sites that meet your definition of active.

    Stratics

    UO Guide

    UORPC (the part of this site dedicated to GL is active)

    Aschuzle (the Travelogue)....Well, their Stygian Abyss maps have been invaluable to me, and I didn't even know they were there until this week.

    thelostlands.com has posts as recently as today

    UOForums.com is active.

    Whispering Rose Radio is an Internet radio station....As far as I'm concerned, as long as the stream is live, which the last time I checked it was, it should be considered active. They've also had in-game events within the last 3 months.

    That's 7.....Most of the sites there I didn't feel like clicking on, 'cos I knew I could get active sites out of the list.

    I guess I don't get the point of your post?

    What, that there aren't dozens like there were years ago? No kidding. We're a smaller player base now. I'd be shocked if we still had anywhere near the same level as we were.

    LOL - I assure you we're active...we're no Stratics but we still have fun! Kudos to all the UO sites - the more the merrier [​IMG]

    Just in case you don't show 'signatures', I am from The Lost Lands

    I'd say it's simply an oversight but is based on the web address being aschulze.net. It should definitely be fixed.

    I hope it will be fixed, because hardly anyone would ever click on a link named "Aschulze". :coco:

    I used to use Ianstorm for the calculators. Also, they had a very good rich, richer, richest list of the Champ spawns and loot that was useful.

    Powergamers gave me some really good training tips in my rookie days of 1998.
