    Our own @Petra Fyde celebrates 5 years as the Managing Editor of Stratics' largest community, Ultima Online, today. In addition to serving as UO ME, she also volunteers as one of our Forum Administrators, and she keeps the network in line as a member of our Board of Directors.

    Join me in thanking her for all her help over the past five years!

    Here are her thoughts on the occasion: http://stratics.com/community/xfa-blog-entry/here-ends-the-fifth.109/

    UO Stratics would not be what it is today without Petra's vision and leadership. It has been a pleasure to serve with Petra. Thank you Boss. *crooked grin and then a bow with a flourish*

    Petra is the reason many of us continue to do what we do, day after day. She has been a true inspiration to me personally over the last 5+ years. She likes to say she just drives the crazy bus and we all ride along together but that is the definition of true leadership. We all go a little crazy together :)

    Thank you Petra for all you do for us, for Ultima Online, for the developers behind UO, and for this community. It's not an easy assignment but you are the best at it.

    I don't think I ever would have figured out those armor refinements without Petra's guide, and that's just one of many, many examples of the times I've consulted her guides. Thanks for your work, Petra.

    aww shucks! :blushing:

    Thank you for all these good wishes - and the cinnamon roll.
    I'll look back on this thread when I'm feeling low and besieged by trolls. Such are the things that help me keep going.

    You are a bright bright light in what sometimes is a very dark tunnel filled with all sorts of trolls n' such. I think I can speak for a lot of us out here who love you and appreciate you, your guides are wonderful and your cool head talk is always such a pleasantry to read. Best to ya and may ya have many many more!

    I'd have thought you can see the state of Petra in the State of UO vid. She's old and wrinkly.
    Sometimes insecure, not as level headed as the backspace key allows her to appear and often unsure if she's made the right decisions. Human, in other words :D

    Thank you Petra, for all the work you do for the UO community, you are amazing. A special thanks for your respectful way to handle Siege forum and community.
    The rules here say, show respect all the time. For you, that is a natural thing and I believe, why we all love you, both here and in game.
    Thanks for being here for us and congrats with your first 5 years here.:heart:

    Human is good Petra... and that backspace key is a life saver when you need it. To question ones self at a thought path is what makes you a good judge and at times mellows the blow you have to give. All anyone here can hope for is your compassion and wisdom gained over the years.. and Age is a mind set.. its so true that your as young as you feel.. I cant tell you how many times I feel 4 billion years old and the next as giddy as a 3 year old playing with leggo's....

    Hi Petra,

    So much has been said already, and it is all true. I see a lot of community fansites, not just Stratics... and by any measure, you are one of a kind. Your dedication is beyond compare. The love for your community shows, and your staff and members know it... they see it every day, for years. You are the master cog... you keep all others aligned and running smoothly.

    Simply, thank you... for everything.
