    Dear Developers, thank you for your kind gifts on Holidays.

    The Valentine heart box is cute and the 24 chocolates inside a sweetie.

    But please, next time could you make the container like a rune book so as to make the whole holiday gifts count for ONE iten and not 24 ???

    Having to deal with item count containment can be stressing and every Holiday the problem gets worse.

    Please, either raise the max items allowed OR make it so that Holiday gifts, while in their special container, only count for 1, regardless how many they may be.

    Thank you and Happy Valentine.

    I agree wholeheartedly. I will not be logging in with most of my characters until this session of gift-giving is over, and the gifts are no longer being issued. I absolutely DO NOT have the space!

    Why don't you just log in and drop the two boxes on the floor? Or even better, Put them in a bin.

    like many I would like to keep a set and with so many items in the set it makes it a wee bit harder. I am grateful for the gifts and the thought and all, but a way to store or display the gifts with out eating into the item count would be great.

    You mean you are incapable of dropping the gifts into the trash or on the ground?

    I really don't think it's a big deal, but then again I don't collect them like a number of people.

    I agree I wish the roses were picked by me so I could give them to my friends and get roses from them.

    That's why all my holiday gifts immediately go into the trash can.
     
  11. the lockdown issue sucks, but i like the gifts themselves... also I love the gifts and the quests the EMs are doing to give out Valentines Day bears!

    I ate all mine. I put on 15 pixels almost overnight.

    Between these gifts and that McLuna promotion by that developer, I wonder though, is UO going to be a facebook game?

    I like the box of candy idea but it is a LOT of stuff! Of course, one *could* eat the entire box of candy. I hear it's calorie free. ;) I'll probably keep one box and dump the rest. I like the roses. They're cute but as others have said, it would have been so nice to have the character name on it. =)

    Obviously not.
     
  16. It's their secret evil plan to make pple open more accounts to own more houses/storage capacity.

    Just kidding. And I know the devs worked hard for this and can understand their names on the roses, but it would have been nice to have one's own character's name on the roses, to give to one's Valentine.

    This is a continual issue with the team. Non stacking items. How do they keep getting it wrong?? Seeds finally stack, but still not plants. Still not the chocolate ingredients. Now these gift chocolates, which are very cute and prompted me to eat real chocolate :D, but what am I to do with 24 chocolates on a ton of characters? *shakes head*

    I agree with that as well. I have zero desire to give a rose with someone's name on it that I don't know. It's like the episode of Peanuts where everyone gave Charlie Brown their used valentines from fellow students. Alternating the pumpkins with player and team names is one thing, but for what is supposed to be a love oriented holiday? Thanks, but no thanks. I know some will like having *insert dev here*' s name on their rose, but I don't.

    You all know sometimes ...... I think this is all a secret plot by the devs to get all us horders to open another account so we can store more crap.

    *sighs*

    I'm NOT doing it!

    I think it would be nice if everyone was granted 32x32 tiles... any way you come up with them.... be it one castle or 5 plots makes no difference..... and the housing tool would say... you have X # of tiles left you can use... and will "gray" out the houseing plots you can't have anymore.

    Wouldn't that be cool...... but then we'd all want castles.... or we'd all want 60x60 tiles..... so on so forth.... yeah... but I think we should all get that choice... and then.... they should let us custome .... up to 32x32.... that I would like very much.

    Perhaps eat the chocolate or give them to others as intended? :confused:

    Why give the chocolates to others, when every character on every account who logged in within the last 3 weeks got them?

    I dunno. I appreciate the gesture and am keeping the roses but I tossed all the chocolates, as I have no space.

    MalagAste: If I had that much space I'd never stop deco-ing... :D Probably wouldn't work well on populated shards, though!
