Does turning in Blight Cures you bought count?

    Was just wondering if I could buy cures other people made, and turn them in for points towards the reward

    Since the potion carries the name of the character who made it, I suspect credit would automatically go to the creator... not to someone who purchased it. Good question, though... maybe someone else has a definitive answer.

    That would be pretty funny if someone sells a bunch and the buyers turn them in and give the seller credit ;D.

    How does that work, anyway? I hadn't even thought about it until I saw the question posted. :)

    Yes they do count. No matter who makes them.

    I'll repeat. lol
    I'll repeat it again if you like. But it's a sad laugh.
    We are pretty much dev-less.
    You got a respsonse from the producer of the game, not a developer. I realize that's the same thing to a lot of people and that's ok.
    But there are no "devs" that are going to answer you here.

    I'm not complaining. I'm stating facts.

    ...developer, producer, what does it matter? An answer from one of the people who run this game is wonderful regardless of what their title is. Certainly not deserving of a complaint because it's a producer as opposed to a developer or a developer as opposed to a producer. Calling it a fact does not differ it from a complaint...

    I was simply stating that the only person who is going to respond to us here is Mesanna.

    Except that ya know, Phoenix last posted June 25th and Bleak last posted the 29th.

    I guess a little over a week means they never post right? Especially when we had a holiday inbetween?

    Ah ok, didn't read it as such. But to point something out, a response from a producer should be better than a response from a developer.

    No, I was explaining my "lol" since it was questioned by the OP. As much as we'd like it we don't seem to get the "devs" feedback we used to. We don't have conversations with developers about game mechanics, ideas or plans like we did at one time. I remember Garriott actually played with us and had no secrets. He enjoyed the communication.
    It was nice of Mesanna to respond to this random post about slime cures or whatever, but many of us would like to see a more open communication. Especially since UO now seems to be running on a handful of people. It shouldn't be hard for them to get with us. The average person asking a question here wont be getting an answer from any "devs". Most of the time it seems like a dev might get strung up by superiors if he or she communicated with us.

    The term "dev team" is kind of vague in objective terms, but in terms of common usage I've never once heard a distinction made between "dev team" and "producer" in terms of someone suggesting that somehow the producer doesn't count as being on the dev team. I simply cannot imagine someone attempting to make such a distinction.

    Over the years I have tried to introduce the term "UO Team" to replace "dev team," and I must say that I've been surprised to have had a small amount of success. I'd expected zero!

    Good to know but my alchemist turns in the cures anyway. "If" he wins something he will have to give it to his "Masters" anyway! ;)

    Have most people given up on making the cures or are they doing it on stealthers? I checked all the Japanese shards during their prime time earlier today and only spotted two people working on cures (Sakura and Wakoku) and one person running around on Asuka. Within the last 2 1/2 hours, I only saw ONE person working on cures on the Korean, Australian, European, and North American shards and she was on Catskills. The only shard I didn't check was Mugen.

    I tried making cures on Origin and the process seems awfully buggy, with ingredients sticking in flasks and messages that say you have to use at least one of each reagent when you already have at least one of each in the flask.

    Yep still making my daily 20 cures. Not everyone has unlimited sugar. :)

    When the flask says you need one of each and you have them inside the flask, just double click the flask again to fix it.

    *sighs*

    I will probably start making cures again when I get home later today... Haven't been home since early Tuesday :p

    I'm gonna be soooooo far behind though. And I'm sure Promathia is gonna try to screw with me as well. Although first thing I'm gonna do when I get home is snuggle with my little furbabies! :)
