    Where you look'n to go with this? What Continent? East, West? Or maybe you think 1 more EM can cover the rest of the world? Maybe you could get the 2pm IDOC time changed too, and while I'm on the subject that server maintenance really messes with my morning coffee.. just saying..

    Even a morning-noon EM would be nice, for the European players.

    Chill, my Siege friends. Do not fight the Uhall folk. Mods or not. If you have an issue you want discussed, do that. If you fall to the level of any detractors your message will be lost.

    Trust my experience in treading those treacherous waters.

    Well I hope I didn't screw up.

    I tried to opt for the equal customer service for equal paying customers route.

    Ima feeling down tonite after attending my alliance meeting elsewhere to see all the cool stuff the EMs are gonna be doing per shard with player run towns, and kept wondering about US HERE are we gonna be gyped or what ?

    I don't want us to be gyped. We may be different or unique unto our selves on this shard but...................we do pay the same per acct. as the rest of em all do.

    :(

    Perhaps someone with more experience with stratics could let me in on the secret, as to why there is so much resistance against SP?

    Was it past posters, or current posters being asses?

    As zen said we pay the same amount, and Uhall is not "Prodo Shard" Forum. What gives?

    Yes. Past and current. Including myself in the way past. many of those folks remember the "wild woolly" days. Dread Lords and what not.

    Trammel was created to save the game. It had to happen. Not all folks want to play the same game.

    Do not dismiss the folks that do not want to play against players. They out number us to a large degree. They like their game just as we like ours.

    EA/Mythic makes it possible for us all to play.

    If it is Mythic you are trying to reach and talk to... Do not let folks distract you. It is board PvP on a different level. Do not let them get to you.

    While most have a live and let live attitude... Some wish to see us gone. Not many, but some.

    I blame myself sometimes. I let you guys get away with murder. That is who we are. When on the main stage... act accordingly. Uhall is a different beast. Learn it if you wish to help our shard.

    I found long ago, title to a post with "Siege" in it on Uhall is pretty much the same as a post with "TnT" or "pwned" in the title here on the Siege forums. No matter what the post actually says, it's going to bring out some people that say "Siege Sucks!", "TnT sucks!" or "uh uhh, you were pwned!"

    Cut the mod some slack. He spoke his mind whether one agrees with it or not.

    It would be counter productive and a waste of energy to do anything other than just let it go. Stay focused on your ultimate goal. The betterment of the Siege Perilous shard.

    That is all I have to say about that...

    A mod should be held to a higher standard for ROC compliance then anyone else.

    I'm of the belief that they should be held to the same standard, as long as there's another mod willing to call them on it.

    Of course I haven't read the majority of that thread so don't know the full situation.

    Thats fair enough Wulf2k, I just think since they are the ones to enforce the rules, they have agreed to follow them to the T, as not to cause situations like this.

    But yes must be on par minimum.

    Let me be real with this answer. Some siege posters have gone to UoHall with a "We're better than you attitude". Or, they are not hesitant to voice their opinion about the game, whether it be about Siege or prodo shards. UoHaller's don't take to that too well. Also, there has been many "Come to Siege" Campaigns. We say how great the shard is and they should come over. When people come over who can't handle getting killed right out of the gates, they get bitter about it on the boards and like to tell everyone how we are a bunch of newb killing, dry-looting, rez-killing a-holes.

    Basically, you know how here some of us have the attitude that you are responsible for the actions of your guildmates? If one of your guildmates scams (or haxs, or kills NEW, etc), than you are one too or condone it? Some people on UOHAll have the same attitude and judge everyone from and anything about Siege accordingly.

    I haven't read that thread yet and I'm not sure I will. I don't need to hear the haters on UoHall.

    There's also the issue that Siege posters make up like 1% of all shards population, but 30% of all posts on Stratics. So when we start infiltrating Uhall, the non-siegers start thinking, omg you guys only make up 1% of the population, shut up!

    I think the UHall posters hate us because they don't understand us.
    We can be very vocal
    We band together
    We sometimes act like we are the elite, the real UO players
    There may be more of them on the shards but on this forums, we are alot more active, just look at:
    UHall: 15,530 threads
    Siege: 15,232 threads

    So we may in fact outnumber them on UHall, when we all start to post there and that annoy them alot.

    Siege Rocks :thumbup:, even when we are few on the shard.

    Well, Quantum has effectively been our EM since February. How many events has he run outside of the live event arcs that he was required to do by the DEV team?

    What happened to our fairgrounds after our local designs were ditched and some "other" design was supposedly accepted by a vote (that never happened btw) ? I know a bunch of folks got laid off, but c'mon, I feel like we got some sort of bait and switch operation on that contest.

    Why after so many months is he still asking us what type of events we want?

    Why is he not interested in running a PvP tourney when a great number of our players are active and elite PvP'ers?

    I know that Quantum is supposed to be submitting a time sheet of hours to Mesanna every week, I'd like to know when he's logging in and what he's doing on our shard.

    I do feel like we are getting the shaft here. We have an EM that doesn't understand the dynamics of our shard and we have developers who are exactly the same. I have to wonder if Quantum really wants to EM on Siege.

    We're not that difficult, announce an event and run it. People will show up and they will act civilized.

    Hoffs woulda been an awsome EM for a long time. But that didnt work out :/

    I agree Quantum doesnt do much. If I had more time Id request being an EM.

    But look at Quantum, been here since hoffs left, like you said febuary, and he still doesnt have ownership of the EM house? Really? And there is only one trophy in there locked on the floor? A pair of shoes belonging to Sara Dale, of Gilfane.

    Sara took me over to Cats, and we went to the EM house there. That is a nice house. Nice design, and tons of events that have went off, and tons of trophies to show. Yet we get a house with walls, no decor, no nothing. One trophy sitting on the bare floor. Sad, sad.

    I think this nails it on the head for Siege, more so than trying to get a 2nd EM, get the first one up to speed and overwhelmed so he NEEDS help. SP is no different then other shards, in the fact that those that want to be involved WILL be involved and make things work.

    QZ, this shard has had great player run town, Wintermoor, Iantown and others. There is NO reason that this shard can't be doing what you've seen on Ches, you just need to make it happen, there are folks here with the desire and talent to do it.

    I would go the route of asking accountability of the current EM, as IanJames states or burn him at the stake until a new one arises.

    All IMHO

    *smiles* I guess ya noticed my frustration when I attended our alliance meeting on Chesapeake, hearing about EM events, designing town banners for player run towns, possible events like invasions to invade the player run towns whom have or have not allied to whichever UO figurehead, and I shouted 'WHAT ABOUT SIEGE ?' :confused:, at our alliance meeting on Ches. shard.

    Yeh I often notice other shards seem to either have more going for them with EMs than Siege ever gets, but then we here do not have as much happening even without EMs either. Aye we had an active Wintermoor of which I was once a part of, and an active Iantown oft hosting events, Shire etc. and for past couple of years hardly any thing remains of ACTIVE player run events here. I think folks give up here, past couple of years, in frustration.
