    And fix MYUO, seriously, it is has been down for way too long and we've gotten little to no response from anyone at the headquarters.. MYUO comes in handy for factions and guilds alike, the guild search is a MUST for warring and RP guilds as well as alliances..

    Fix the damn thing already.. Temporarily offline? I get the feeling it is permanent..

    They need to get the team behind the Japanese UO website on it, because it's an actual dedicated web team and they've kept MyUO running there.

    The North American versions of UO, Warhammer, and Camelot all lost similar functionality this year - the website pulling in-game data, and all three only have one guy who works on their websites. He said when he finishes upgrading the software on the Camelot website, he'll roll out the Warhammer website, but he wouldn't say anything about the UO website, and he has said that Warhammer won't be pulling any more data from in-game, which makes me think the same will apply to UO. It sounded like the upgrade from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 on Camelot slowed him down in getting to Warhammer, and if that is the case, then he doesn't have the knowledge/expertise to re-implement MyUO like the Japanese team did. It's nothing against him - he was hired to be a community rep, not a website developer, but they've got him doing website duties.

    Very frustrating. If half of UO players are Japanese, and they have an actual web team that keeps their website current, active, and working (And it's not running on Drupal, looks home-brewed), then the other half of UO should also have a web team, or at the very least share an actual web team with Warhammer and Camelot.

    Incredibly frustrating when SWTOR has a dedicated team, and when borrowing the SWTOR.com for a day could fix up a lot of things. It would only be fitting since SWTOR has borrowed people from UO, Camelot, and Warhammer. SWTOR.com runs on the same software that UOHerald, Warhammer Herald, and Camelot Herald runs so there is even less of a reason for them not to help.
