    I noticed it but was waiting on them to post it. :D
     
  3. Thanks for responding to my question. It was helpful. Now you just need a running place on the site that updates the general exploit fixed. Maybe like McDonald's over 1 million served that used to grace the place till they hit a billion.

    I think we are just asking for communication and not this Shh Shh stuff. No one is asking for detail on who got punished.

    I think it is just after week after week of sad, underwhelming FoF's very few really care what is in there anymore.

    It's called indifference.

    Still, they really either need to go back to elementary school and learn how to count... or name it something other than Five on Friday....

    I wouldn't go that far but... look at your first FoF's. They were full of detailed informations and you answered indeed five questions. Do we really give so little feedback?
    Why did you post it then in the first place?

    1. Well, it turned out to not be so obselete after all (shortly afterward, the event got extended 3+ days)
    2. IT was probably the thing she was getting the most questions about.

    Even on a small shard like Lake Austin, I was STILL running into people with the "it's just an event monster; they only carry junk loot" opinion, who never even bothered with Melissa, or went in for the quick cape and points, and left without looting. In fact, it was some such person that "gifted" me with my first and only Crimson, when I got it after the instanced corpses combined (it sure wasn't on the instanced corpse I had access to).

    Without her post, had the event ended on time, there would probably be people attempting to call BS on the very real Crimsons looted from Melissa, from now till the end of UO.

    As for the reduction in questions, she can only answer (for the most part) questions people ask, and most of the easy questions have already been answered. What's left are very technical questions, questions that have no real answer, questions that could be used to confirm certain cheats if answered (resulting in more cheating), and worst of all, leading questions meant as traps.

    A lot of the "why haven't you answered my questions?" hostile posts list scads of questions - most with answers that would either have to be explained in terms only programmers would understand, and/or in an answer that would be longer for one question than the entire FoF.

    The rest are ones that make me want to reach through the screen and strangle the poster. These are typically the "trap" questions, the ones that are the UO equivalent to "Are you still having sex with animals?" where the poster is insisting on a Yes or No answer (no denials alowed), as to make further attacks on EA staff for either answer.

    Well said Basara!

    /agree
     
  13. There were 5 items on the FoF. No one ever said it HAD to be 5 questions. This same incorrect assumption is posted by someone every single freaking week, and the same answer is provided.

    I hope it sinks in this time, but I sincerely doubt it. The same thing will be said next week, with the same answer given.

    I would like to quote the UO Website for those too deficient to do so themselves.

    Connor as much as I know you enjoy putting your head and not listening to others it was only until Jeremy took on the FoF that we started to get fewer than 5 questions answered.

    Jeremy should be reading the boards so maybe... maybe... it will sink in that the expectation is that, yes, she answers 5 questions a week. It's a complaint voiced every week about her, so you'd think she'd get a hint and up her game.
     
  17. Those not too deficient would notice that nowhere does it say "Updated every week with 5 new questions, just that there will be new questions, with no specific number attached. It's an ASSUMPTION that there will be 5. There has been 5 items every week that I've read it. Some in the form of questions and some in the form of statements.
     
  18. Yeah....so? New person, new writing style.

    Back to the cage with you Tweety....:next:

    People are under the assumption that there will be 5 because the name of it is "Five on Friday"

    ... and isn't Connor just ASSUMING that there _shouldn't_ be 5 questions?

    Doesnt make you right, Connor dear heart. Just makes you assume as much as we do. The precedent was set by Wilki and even Jeremy herself the first part of her tenure that the expectation was 5 questions were answered. You set the precedent, you have set up the expectation.

    Wouldn't this debate of five questions/answers be solved if it was simply retitled? Didn't Jeremy even say awhile back she was thinking of doing that very thing because some weeks she doesn't have five on Friday, be it questions and/or answers? Just call it "This week in UO" or "Ask and Answer". I don't know. At least if it were named something else we (yes I've done it several times myself) won't be able to complain about a specific number.
     
  22. She was talking about the use of "F's" for the title of each weeks' posting.
     

  23. Since the original statement doesn't specifically say 5 questions, the answer would be no.

    Doesn't make me wrong either. Precedents are used in court cases, not in game information posted on the UO site. Just because something is done in a certain way for a while doesn't mean it can't change. Does it really matter all that much if a sentence has a question mark at the end instead of a period? A statement is nothing more than a sentence that is actually answering a question that was asked without actually posting the question, as it's implied that the orginal question is common knowledge.

    And uh........

    er......yeah......:blushing:

    You can 'discuss' (in Connor talk, that means 'ignore') this all you want Connor, but you don't have a leg to stand on.
     
  25. Actually, I have 2 very good legs, it's the back that's messed up, but they work just fine thanks.

    3 if you listen to what the women have to say, but you know how women gossip...
