    I sure will do :).

    But...

    Could you please secure this page? I mean this https-thing. I feel very uncomfortable to fill in my account name and such.

    On the subject of securing things, any chance this could be stickied up somewhere? :)

    I am sorry but I do not feel right putting my account name on the site.
    I have still submitted my question(s). But here they are again..

    Is it possible to have a 2nd house be a vet reward.
    As many people like myself, have been with the game for a long, long time. And as such, have collected tons of items thru the years. I know it is all pixel crack. But some like to preserve the history of thier shard. If even having a 2nd house as a vet reward, limit to at least an 18x18 or smaller. Have it so the first house is tied to the 1st char on that account, and 2nd house tied to the 2nd char. User would get a prompt when placing or trading the house saying this house must be placed or accepted by the 2nd char on your account. The user must agree to this. House would be auto refresh. If a 3rd house is placed, both house's would become condemned.

    Or if the whole 2nd house thing could not go in. Have a reward be more storage for that account based on the year. Like the +5 reward to skill points.

    IE
    4 yrs = 650 more lockdowns
    5-8 yrs = 1100 more lockdowns
    9-12 yrs = 2119 more lockdowns
    Thanks for your time in reading this question.

    Since you rolled out the recent publish I was curious if you would consider a PvM publish. Things that I feel need to be addressed
    1. minimum loot values. No way this is working properly
    2. Ability to gain faction kill pts by killing faction monster enemies. No chance for a pvm faction member to ever get to high status. If you feel its only about pvp then thats truly sad.
    3. Spawn rates they simply are to slow even in fel now since awile back when you rescaled the spawn in fel dungeons
    4. Ilshenar need recall in and out. Why take an area set aside for monster bashing and then make it impossible to get into and remain long. Unless you plan to remodel BoS somehow so everyday players can use them but scripters cannot abuse them.
    5. Some type of looting ability so we can ignore crap loot to find the higher intensity without getting a migrane
    6. Loot in general so much terrible loot spawns on even the doom bosses its disheartening just to look at it. Perhaps it would be better to spawn much less loot to improve whats left.
    Thanks for your time
     
  9. I'm with the group here concerning account/password usage. If it's not a secured page I won't use it in the context you'd like to see.

    Sorry.

    I can see the concern about not putting account name in that page, but since they aren't asking for PW also it's not really that big a deal people.

    If you don't feel comfortable using it, then fair enough, they'll probably review it and make some changes ie either stop asking for Account Name or SSL the site but don't make it seem like it's some big "Security Threat"... They asked for one piece of info in the clear... not the whole enchalada.

    Woah, account name.

    UO.com has been hacked you know.

    A few years back they did that thing where they hack it and desecrate it.

    It was brought back in short order, unlike other sites I've seen that seem desecrated for months.

    Can't you just set up a special E-mail address through EA Mythic and have us only E-Mail you from E-Mail addresses associated with our UO accounts? Wouldn't that be more secure? (Those of you out there who know more about security than I do, would it be?)

    Or maybe scan the boards and copy/past interesting questions into a giant text file and select FoF Qs from that?

    This post will have me smiling for hours.

    Oh ok, not hours. Nothing can make me smile for hours these days.

    But minutes will do.

    Seriously if you are that scared of being hacked then you shouldn't post on forums use any form of IM's exspecially the hackers favorite ICQ. Hell don't even connect to the interent because no matter what there is no such thing as a 100% secure site.

    Well I sent Jel a PM but I will put this out there for all. I will house whoever needs the extra storage on Siege. Just PM me or find me in game.
    I am willing to dedicate 3/4 of the storage in my castle near britt cross roads to the homeless and set up a resupply box for all....hmm kinda like NEW. I am also a NEW emmisary if anyone needs it.

    I don't have any questions for you to address. I would suggest as part of your format you continue to give us teasers on how the Expansion is progressing. It creates great dialogue during the week and surely you all get great feedback from the masses.
