(How to) take the temperature of the community again

    This is referring to one of Jeremys post

    I really would like to know how this is planned to achieved.
    By keeping silent? Waiting till the innocent banned users calm down & just shut up?
    Or is there any plan?

    Please note: This is not a post tho whine, this is not a post to be bitter.
    Im just asking a valid question!

    And as an Update, not as post to avoid to bump the thread: All comments that are plain flames will be ignored; at least by me.
    Again, this post is not to discuss my ban or others!

    Update2: Freja might be correct; didnt read Jeremy was referring to the siege-community only. Corrected my post by replacing "masses" by "innocent banned users" as well

    They Don't have to tell you anything, they don't have to show you any proof.

    They can, and DO ban for "ANY" reasion they want to and there is "Nothing" you can do about it. You "OWN" nothing, even if you spent RL cash for items, YOU DON'T OWN IT! and they did give you a reasion "possession of a multitude of highly illegal items".

    Done, over with. end of story!!!

    What masses? they banned a few and a few are upset but I think I can say for sure, most are happy for the actions taking from EA.
    You took a risk and got burned, learn from it and stay silent.

    And your quote is false, it had nothing to do with the banning but with the balance on Siege.

    If you really ask how EA vill take the temperature of the Siege community again, then you should had quoted her correct

    I don't think the idea of "most" being happy presents a complete picture.

    There's a good number of players who for example: don't understand what happened, don't read these boards and haven't absorbed the nature of EA's replies to the banned people, haven't been playing long enough to have seen the history of actions like this, don't have much of their own time invested in it, or maybe are so unconnected with these kinds of things in their own gameplay that it doesn't get their attention.

    It's possible that EA doesn't mind some of the more-aware people raising objections and questions because we're outnumbered and in that respect, maybe, we're expendable.

    Has been called "Ostard"-technick" (by Bobar), and that describes it best i think.
    Putting the head in the sand (aks "ignoring ppl") until ppl just forget about the unaccebtable beaviour of EA.

    *SIGHS*
     
  8. Evidently you are not innocent. Damn, get over and move on with life. If I would have gotten banned thats what I would have done.

    First, you get a thermometer. pull off the diaper, lube the thermometer up. insert and let it beep. that is how tempurture is taken

    Funny exerpt here from your post


    You keep trying to squeeze the i was banned but still have otehr accounts active waa waa:sad3::rant2:

    Funny, my opinion about your crying :sad3: about being banned, claim this is not a thread about it, but look at your own quotes adn you are squeezeing it in there

    From what I am understanding there is a focus group that is quiered on ideas, ect, I am sure something along those lines will be done again after verifieing that they focus group is indeed seige players and not part timers


    What does it matter anyhow, you were banned, and should not be playing UO, why dont you e-mail Jeremy your other account information so it can be taken care of correctly.

    You play production shards just like I do and it strikes me as odd why you are inquireing about siege, when you have no ties to it, you self admitted here many times you were *BANNED* and according to the TOS put forth by EA you should be done wiht UO, and move on

    Temperature=hot

    Judging by the reaction of the few banned they hit the nail on the head. IMO= yes just go away.:next:

    No, there is no evidence, no proof!
    Just word against word.
    EA declines to speak about it.

    As said in my signature: If they would tell me any multitudes of items in my posession that were to be illegal i would shut up asking for reasons!

    I am still 100% confirmed my ban was an error!

    Thats why i would agree to give permission to allow EA to name the exact details of my ban in pblic.
    I would sign a hand-written letter, pass it to a (reallife)lawyer or do whatever is needed to make them speak to me.
    May it be in public or in private!

    For now there is just that mail.
    And the final words telling "blah blah multitudes of highly illegal items blah blah"

    followed by "Any further replies regarding this subject will not be acknowledged."

    Why don't you and Lucy (that is, if you're not the same person), take this up in PM. Then you can cry on each others shoulder and bad mouth EA all you like. And the rest of us don't have to sacrifice bandwidth because of it. You broke the TOS, you were caught, you were banned. GET OVER IT !!!

    We never did.

    Just ignore this thread like EA is ingoring my questions.

    Can only speak for myself: No i didnt! And that is what´s wrong.
    The lack of communication.
    The attitude of EA assuming they dont do errors and/or not seeing the need to explain their action to the banned ppl that claim to be innocent.
    Let it be in private or public.
