    As most of you have probably heard by now Jeremy is no longer with Mythic. I really wish her the best and I know she will do great in wherever her journey takes her next! Best of luck to her! She is an awesome individual.

    With that said - HELLO! My name is Joanne, I am your new Community person and I am very happy to be here. This is all very exciting and I look forward to getting to know all of you here.

    For those of you that have been to the UO Town Halls for the past year and a half or so, you have probably met me as I was setting up for the DAoC events.

    I have a long history with UO from waaaaaay back in the day. I mean way back - I'm talking about beta testing and if I start to think of how many years ago that was I just might feel old. But I won't think about that. ;)

    All this to say, I'm here for you folks. If I can help you with anything please feel free to contact me and expect to see more posts from me very soon.

    Hello Joanne and thanks for posting.

    I suppose we should get the obvious question out of the way: Are you still the community rep for DAoC, and if so are you going to have the time to handle both roles?

    So is this going to be a permanent role for you, as well as your responsibilities for DAoC, or are you "Filling in" until they bring someone up to speed?

    Welcome to the party.

    Don't forget your 70+-fire-resist suit :)

    ( Now for us, let's remember, the quota of Joanne's attention we each get is about 2.4 minutes per account per year ... well, assuming she never has any meetings or responsibilities (haha). When we get her attention, make sure we make it count :) )

    I was looking here to see, why I cant get a connection from Germany - do the presidential elections block Ultima Online from logging in or something else?

    Wish you all the best - even if you will have a hard time to replace Jeremy.

    Yes, I am still the Community Representative for DAoC.

    As for having the time, I'll make the time. I love doing what I do and who needs sleep anyways? :)

    *chuckles* Joanne, you know this is going to be a love/hate relationship. It seems you have experience at the community rep thing. Good, I feel that is a bonus.

    I tend to the love side. Good luck and keep us up to speed. Siege folk too... *ducks and run*

    Hello Joanne :)

    As with many others, I'll give you a chance. I try not to be one of those UO-is-dying-just-quit-now people. Just ignore them and have fun here! ;)

    A serious question:

    Are you an active UO player? (As in playing on your own time for your own personal reasons.) If yes, how long?
     
  29. Aye and what be yer home shard to add to that :O if YES. :O

    No offense to you personally,Im sure you will do the best you can but the state that UO is in it really needs a dedicated person, not a split schedule. This is just another half baked attempt by EA. Not good.

    Sounds like a good solution in a budget crisis to me I'd much rather have someone who's played uo in the past rather than someone new who just has no idea what's going on with anything and wondering why they can't rotate the camera around their UO character.
     
  32. Budweiser

    I second that question.... How long has it been since you logged into your own char? ;) How long was the break you took from UO? What shards do you play currently? Are you corpse proof?

    Turn my char's face white like the rest of her body and I'll make you a small shrine in my house. :(

    For anything else I just can't care at the moment, it will never get fixed(Speedhacking, etc).
    So what does it matter whether you were on the Beta or not... Or how long you're staying.. Time will tell what there's to say about you.

    Get the job done -better than Jeremy to say the least- and you've got a new fan. :thumbup1:

    Ouch. I was afraid of that. We're a pretty needy community.

    Well hello again!! My husband, myself and daughters stayed after the UO townhall to see the DAoC presentation. If you have even half the passion for UO(which seems like you have more) as you had for DAoC, I am pretty confident this is going to be a really great thing!! Sadly for DAoC we didn't take it up, but thats mostly because asfter talking to others there, we decided just not enough hours for more than one MMO at least for us. But it wasn't because we weren't impressed.

    Good to have you aboard and look forward to meeting you again soon!!

  41. look in the lag threads ... I think you'll find US shards are also having issues - prolly the elections.

    Well it's my turn to say HI! And welcome officially to the zoo known as UO Hall.

    I miss Wilki, and now I miss Jeremy....*sighs* time sure does fly, doesn't it? And I've only been around for 6 of the 11 long years of the life of this wonderful game.

    Hope you have your PM's open to all, I bugged Jeremy quite often ;)

    Hope you have a great stay here :)

    Hi Joanne, and welcome to the place where you'll get to know the UOHallers and the UOHall-Hollerers.
     
  50. Welcome To Stratics and UOHall! I hope you are as sweet as the lady you replaced with the aid and rescues for others in need. You have one hell of a job, to not only keep we normal shard players quite, plus that bunch from Siege ;) can sure raise the roof, so I hope you got your hammer and nails and are ready. Better yet you might need a whip and a chair for some like Kemo ;)
