    .....someone who has something offensive in their home but is not online?

    Example removed.....just help me page....please.....no need to discuss the example......

    I have tried the harassment way but the person is obviously not online because even typing in the name does not work. It says player can't be found and to try typing again.

    Then I decided o.k. I'll try other but in other they told me that it is harassment and I need to do it that way.

    I'm not one to be ugly about stuff. I'm probably one of the nicer players and I just want this "junk" gone.
     

  2. Well can you target yourself. Sounds silly but you could stand there. I know I have also paged GMs when I lost things and they came.

    Ill look when I get home but there is a way to do it.

    I tried. You can not target yourself for harassment.

    YOu should be able to just page the regular way ... but that takes forever.

    I think the matter in question DOES need to be resolved... as your not alone in being offended.

    My example is just that....it's an example it is NOT what is happening in this specific house but I tried to come up with something that would prove my point. I can assure you I am not alone in being offended by this house either but I still can't seem to get through to the gms.

    swastika-korea-cc-lance-johnson-200.jpg tibetan-book-of-the-dead2.jpg The swastika (Sanskrit svastika, "all is well") is a cross with four arms of equal length, with the ends of each arm bent at a right angle. Sometimes dots are added between each arm.
    The swastika is an ancient symbol found worldwide, but it is especially common in India. It can be seen in the art of the Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, Celts, Native Americans, and Persians as well Hindus, Jains and Buddhists.

    The swastika (from Sanskrit svástika) is an equilateral cross with its arms bent at right angles, in either right-facing (卐) form or its mirrored left-facing (卍) form. Archaeological evidence of swastika-shaped ornaments dates from the Neolithic period and was first found in the Indus Valley Civilization of the Indian Subcontinent. It occurs today in the modern day culture of India, sometimes as a geometrical motif and sometimes as a religious symbol; it remains widely used in Eastern and Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.
    Despite this usage, the symbol has become stigmatized and to some extent taboo in the Western world because of its iconic usage by Nazi Germany, and it has notably been outlawed in Germany if used as a symbol of Nazism (usage of the sign by religious groups is tolerated). Many modern political extremists and neo-nazi groups such as Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party and Russian National Unity use stylised swastikas or similar symbols.


    The only reason i know about its many uses and that it is not an "evil" symbol is that i study Buddhism

    Thanks, I have done the help other other option three times now and everytime I get a canned response that they can not do anything until I use the harassment pager. This definitely needs to be refigured. People can harass other players even if out of game.

    O.k. FORGET my example. It was just an example!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm going edit it......this is NOT what the house has. It is something else sexually about a specific person that offends me!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi

    Just mouse over the house sign, and get the owner's name from that and then page - and type the name in. That should work.
    You could also get a sextant or coordinates some other way and use them in the page also.

    Just a few suggestions! That should work though since the owner's name should exist (one would hope!). :eyes:

    How about get the persons name, what it is that is offensive... the co-ordinates of the house.... and PM one of the DEV's... or something.... perhaps that will get a response.
     
  15. MariamATL

    MariamATL Guest

    O.k. so maybe it's a non existent player??? Could that happen? I can't even type in the name because it tells me no player in database. I tell you I've tried EVERYTHING.

    Can a player make a house with a char, then switch names? Hmmm....interesting.....

    You want to page on something in somebody else's house?

    That is the most ******** thing I heard.

    Why not just try the normal paging then? Clearly the harassment one wont work as you just stated because there is no one to target. Of course an offensive display in a house doesn't really qualify as harassment, it just qualifies as offensive, lol. It's not a bug, so what else can you choose from? A normal page. So just try it and word it clearly.

    I can see if the "offensive" thing was aimed at you directly, but it sounds like it's not........instead of racking your brains trying to page a GM.....write to EA directly. Try a phone call too......

    I understand there can be things displayed that are just plain sick and vulgar, and without knowing, whose to say?

    Obviously Heartseeker thinks lightly of autistic people and children (read your words)

    Or if it's a house in the same location as your own...
     
  23. Instead of paging a GM for any reason, write a letter to Santa Claus instead.

    It's got about as much chance of getting something done.

    So what was the great issue? After reading the thread I never got what the "view" in question was. I really hope that this wasn't a crusade against nothing as has happened to many times in this game....

    Or maybe the account is deactivated.

    Might be the way wording your page. try this Im at a players home on (shard),and this person has something vile on display. and put the coords in.
    Gm is picking your page up as harassment because you are saying your offended. the gm thinks a player is offending you,and not something on display in this players house.

    Trust me I had someone do the same thing.... Perhaps they are on your shard now. Lucky you.

    At any rate some folk think it's "cute" to name their parrots something vulgar...

    *thinks back to the poll on ages*... You'd think that we were beyond that.

    I find that Change by Ea offensive and I demand it to be changed to something with more freedom and to allow people to express the ideals!! I do not live in a repressive regime and I wish that Ea does not repress other people freedom!. Now how can I page on change by Ea sign?

    Personally I know it wouldn't bother me (I don't know what it was, but it wouldn't bother me), but there are kids that play this game as well as people from the midwest. So maybe not everyone get all freedom-of-speechy over it.

    I am a little bit curious what it was though - I'm guessing some kind of action involving some sort of body part. Anyone else got a guess? :p

    The house infront of Mariam's had parrots that had very vulgar things being said about me...

    It took Mariam, myself (On the char that was being slandered by parrots) and another guild member all paging. It was resolved shortly after. Thank you to the EA staff and thanks to you all for all your suggestions.

    Most of all, Thank you Mariam for spending so much time seeing that this was taken care of and standing by me 100%. Love you lady...you are the best!

    P.S The parrots were renamed to "Changed By EA Staff" :p

    Im glad you got it fixed harassment comes in many forms EA GM did the right thing

    as to my earlier post I my self find swastika and cant bare to look at them even though they have many meanings I find myself being reminded of a horrific event that should have never happened.

    I have played since sep of 99 and I once seen a item locked down in a players house that said "N***** killer" and of all people to own it was a police officer in CA (must have worked for LA PD it was sickening and extremely offensive to me. not long after i seen it he got BAND :thumbup:

    and as to those that talk about freedom of speech I say F*** you :fight:

    this is a game WE ALL SHOULD ENJOY not just YOU get it :eyes:

    Hope this don't get me banded :confused:

    I was mostly kidding with my post though I do find offensive owened by ea signs :). Im from new york and assume most people like me from any city has gone through quiete a bit.Well from all the violence ive seen-commited all the words that are used in a daily basis from 3 year olds to 90 year olds not to mention racist comments ive recieved in person and discrimination from police and abused of power I belive am pretty immune to any type of naughty thing that might be posted in UO unless it specificaly mentions my name and is target directed to me. Actually at this moment am surprised that PETA is not trying to protect the turkeys right now.

    Way too much politically correct crap going around? Does it come free with cheese.


    (Nothing against the OP. since it was a personal attack.) Just an observation on the goings of life.

    since when is it ok to go into a persons house and say "this thing you have here offends me, im paging", thats like going into someones house in real life, finding a playboy mag and throwing it out... leave people alone dude, close your eyes if you're offended, no one forced u to go into their house
     
  37. MariamATL

    Except for the fact Demonous that I live behind said house and it was a vicious personal attack against a friend. I'm fairly certain that even in America some things are not allowed to be part of your house if it is a vicious personal attack against someone else. Either way, I'm thankful that the GMs took care of it. =)

    Ya know I loooove this "keep ya yap shut" mentality. This same mentality that pisses me off in RL has spread into the virtual world.

    Nice attitude.

    It was the same attitude that was prevailent across Europe when Hitler came to power and spread his atrocities!

    This is the same attitude police world wide come up against EVERYDAY just trying to do their job.

    Now in the virtual world you told to keep your trap shut if you see someone cheating. Keep your trap shut if you see something that is a clear violation of the ROC/TOS. In short keep ya trap shut.

    Well you know what :

    I REFUSE TO KEEP MY FAT MOUTH SHUT!

    Maybe its time some other folks need to stand up too but then you're probably worried about offending someone in game. Well, some crap don't belong in UO, period!

    To the OP, way to go! Stand your ground and don't back down!!
