    If someone is interested please let me know and I will put you in touch with the right people. Sonoma could use a full time reporter and at this time we do not have one.

    The thing is sadly there's not a whole lot to report about on Sonoma. The only thing if you ask me that's really worth wasting time as far as "reports" go is the YMCA.

    Which the YMCA isn't vacated nearly as much as you used too. Why make reports about PvP, PvP is next to gone, ran my PvM templates that plaque try skills. There's your report. Factions, same as every day PvP, dismount tamers claiming skill and ownage.

    Sonoma's dead, and it would be a waste of anyone time and finger strokes to be a Sonoma shard reporter.

    You really shouldn't try to put such a positive spin on things there old.

    I'm just keeping it real. It would be a waste of time.

    Maybe Sonoma feels dead because we don't have a reporter letting us know what's going on. Does Sonoma have public auctions like on other shards?Would people/guilds organize and run player events for the shard if they knew it would be covered and there are people willing to help out? I see some people and a few guilds that try to get things going every once in a while, maybe if a few more people jumped in, there can be something happening once or twice a week for people to look forward to attend.
  9. We had someone who did a weekly report in the pvp thread long ago. Don Corleon(wrong spelling I think) used to keep track of who got the kills on the battlefield and did a list, "kills of the week". He used forensic evaluation skill to see who got the kill shot. Wasn’t 100% but at least you could tell who was getting the kills and a neutral opinion on the fight as he seen it. Bad thing was some people wouldn’t stop killing him and that made it hard to keep track of kills. After awhile he quit doing it and understandably so.

    PAS used to try to do regular auctions but there was too many people that wanted to act like children and it got to be more work than it was worth. People don't want to put a lot of effort into something that isnt appreciated.

    We're ready, willing and able to hand someone a nice shiny blue staff badge and the title 'UO Sonoma News Reporter'. Contact AirmidCecht or Watchertoo, they are the News Administrators.
  12. I truly hope who ever takes the task of being Sonoma’s reporter will use facts and not opinions. If the reporter is using opinions rather than facts its not reporting the news, it’s a talk show.

    Maybe stealth is a good idea to cover felucca, what about a stealthy thief? Then you can steal some trophies whilst you aren't too busy, problem with the last reporter is, she or he kept getting killed so we were subjected to black and white pics which aren't very clear.
