@Mesanna @Kyronix @Bleak So I spent a lot of time deco'ing for my event in a public place because it suits the event. For example, for the Britain's Library event. It was appropriate to celebrate it in Castle British as it was he who founded the Library. So it is important for us to be able to utilize the public lands for our events. It celebrates those cities and the history of UO in general! Normally stuff lasts a few hours at least, but this time one hour into the event and things started to *POOF* disappear. This is highly unfair to us as a community of player-event planners. Especially when I was not aware of such changes, there is nothing in the patch notes that gives us information to plan ahead in a way that accommodates for the changes. Some ideas include allowing us to buy an item off the UO Store that lets us lock down say 100 things for 4 hours and set their security access level. Or you allow EM's or GM's to lock things down for us with a much longer timer. Or a third option might be to up the decay in towns up to say 4 hours, so that its just towns.
