How many are lurking?

Discussion in 'UO Sonoma' started by Del_Xavier, Mar 23, 2006.

    How many of you out there are still around but just lurking? I know with all the PvP threads lately I haven't posted much, so I'm kinda wondering how many are also lurking and just haven't found many interesting threads to post to?

    The real question tho, Max, is how many of the lurkers actually posted before PvP threads became so common or have they always been lurkers, and how many that are waving in as lurkers still post regularly? hehe

    *raises hand as an outspoken Sonoman, no lurking here*

    I've been lurking for several years seeing if I should return. Alas, I've not seen anything to change my mind . . . .

    Lurking, hardly ever posting, reading daily, still playing daily.

    Trammie, Guilded and not even remotely interested in PvP.

  17. Herewith, a question for any of you 'lurkers':

    If PvP threads dismay or bore you, why do you not post something else?

    I think that the only reason there's been a preponderance of those lately is due to the fact that no one else seems to be inclined towards contributing to the forum.

    Just my two cents.

    Well before this thread, I didn't even know half of these guys were still here. LOL

    It's good to know that people are still around. *waves to everybody*

    I am encouraged by Salty Pete's post today, although it is a bit wacky. Hehe.
     
  19. Do they have to be around, in order to make an effort?

    Given those parameters, perhaps I should quit running events or posting, myself.

  24. Well Silk I can understand that being that it doesn't interest you. But don't let the PvP threads stop you from posting and/or replying. You guys need to fire up again and bring a varity back to the boards. I kinda miss reporters doing the whole story night thing at the YMCA. I may not be a reporter, but I think I can pull off a sigment myself when the road trip is over. Can't have a red followin' ya guys 'round... The finger may get itchy for the trigger, hehee...

    Darius: Zita
    Darius: Blessings of Sosaria to you and merry met, friend.
    Darius: I am glad for your company and wonder if you seek the heritage of your people? I sense within you an elven bloodline -- the purity of which was lost when our brothers and sisters were exiled here in the Rupture.
    Darius: If it is your desire to reclaim your place amongst the people, you must demonstrate that you understand and embrace the responsibilities expected of you as an elf.
    Darius: The most basic lessons of our Sosaria are taught by her humblest children. Seek Maul, the great bear, who understands instictively the seasons.
    Darius: Seek Strongroot, the great treefellow, whose very roots reach to the heart of the world. Seek Enigma, whose wisdom can only be conveyed in riddles and rhymes. Seek Bravehorn, the great hart, who exemplifies the fierce dedication of a protector of his people.
    Darius: Seek the Huntsman, the centuar tasked with maintaining the balance. And lastly seek Arielle, the pixie, who has perhaps the most important lesson -- not to take yourself too seriously.
    Darius: Or do none of these things. You must choose your own path in the world, and what use you'll make of your existence.

    I'm sure we've had that chat before, Dor. You're part of that special breed that is always around. When Sonoma is dead, you'll never be forgotten. You're virtually an institution unto yourself.

    Lady Vixen,
    I would.
    My night was less interesting. Waited on wife to finish her routine (we share an account). Note: We have a guild with three people. It is just the wife, one friend of ours and I, ooops wrong, one of my sons added a character but I see that char racing for the delete button.
    Logged in and checked to see if Octavius was on, he wasn't. Went to Destard to kill those poor little dragons for money. Ran into Thraximus and a few others, chatted (vaguely disquised insults) with him for 2 sentences. Game crashed, woke up to 2 dead drakes and a dragon chewing on me. Fled with what little life remained. (Talk about luck!)
    Ran around Destard, killed a couple dragons and several drakes. Lagged into the dirt nap situation. Got rezzed by a considerate person from COP. Killed another dragon. Decided to try cyclopian warriors and titans.
    Swung by Brit to replace my poor liitle horsey (appropriately named Dragon Snack). Rode to Brit gate. On the way ran into one of my sons. Promised to find him a full spell book before the night was over. Jumped into Brit gate for Honesty shrine. Arrived to see my other son getting rezzed. He warned me that a Titan para was near. Rode down to Cylops Pyramid and killed a dozen or so assorted cylopian warriors, titans and ettins. Pulled a cool lute from a Para (something Octavius can use). Decided to leave and remembered the Titan para near gate. Requested assistance from the one other person there (whom I had realized was much better than I; for everyone that knows me realizes that verily I do sucketh). I got ganked by the para in about 5 seconds. Ran to get rezzed, got back to see the other guy had killed the para (I wish I recalled his name - sorry people, I'm old and my memory sucks too).
    Went shopping for that spellbook for my son at one of my favotire out-of-the-way vendors and went to Haven to give book to my son. Ran into a friend (Drizzt of POWR) that wanted XX to ally with his new guild. (Makes a person wander what he was thinking, or drinking.) Said sure, since he is a great guy that has helped watch over my boys since they joined UO. Realized that I am not the guild leader. Logged out so Karyn could log back in.
    After her failure at allying (do you have to wait a period to ally a guild after stepping out of an alliance?) I logged back in and decided to hit the dragons again. Died about 1 screen from the door. Got rezzed by a person that somehow was able to refrain from laughing out loud. Killed two more dragons and logged out.
    Whee!

    If you guys really want to read the mad dogs diary, I'll post it. It probably would make a good laugh for everyone. I could include screenshots of my ghost watching Dragon Snack live up to his name. Otherwise, I'll continue lurking and just replying to the threads that I have some reason to comment on.

    Check to see if you have a war invite from any other guild. When THB Joined the -D- alliance I found that there was a war invite stopping me [you can guess who from] Once I removed that I was able to join a alliance. So have both GM's of the guilds check that there is no war invites as that is what is blocking you

    Lady Vixen,
    AHHH. It said that POWR was in a guild war, but they swore they were not. Just before we tried to ally, Drizzt was trying to add my son back into his new guild and guess what guild name kept popping up? Even at 12 he didn't fall for that again. I bet that POWR has a war invite from ZOG. XX doesn't have one. Karyn checked for that. Although I would accept an invite, I'm not certain Karyn or Octavius would care for that.
    Thanks for the advice.
