  1. have 25 percent of the posts on Stratics?

    Discuss.

    P.S. Oh, and moderators, this is a discussion thread. If it goes off topic, your job is to remove the off topic posts, not move the entire thread. You know, in case you had forgotten.

    :)

    Reasons?

    1.) The siege'ers are typically the die hards that are very passionate about the game and therefore more vocal?

    2.) The siege'ers are bored trying to get their ROT gains so come here to post instead? lol

    3.) The siege'ers all love Kelmo so much they stop in regularly to keep him busy?

    Others?

    If you have a problem with moderation by all means send a complaint by email or PM. There's something in the roC regarding discussing moderator's actions in public, I believe.

    Well, the fact that they play that shard indicates a masochistic tendency among its users (ROT, thinking being a victim is a virtue, etc.), so they feel the need to come and troll to get the verbal equivalent of whips and chains applied.

    Vocal and passionate part of the community?

    I know many which never post here and use different forums for whatever reasons.

    Because the other 97% of the players actually play the game more than posting on stratics?

    Its the perfect example of a vocal minority. There has been many examples of vocal minorities in history. We can thank vocal minorities for things like prohibition.

    Edit! *have* LA...

    Vocal minorites have brought a lot of good to the world as well, but this is about UO.

    Siege and it's players are what they are. We may be few but we pay and play just as any other subscriber does. Yes, we choose to play the alternative rule set. That does not make us wrong.

    We tend to post a lot. *shrugs*

    Some shards have very active forums outside of Stratics. Atlantic has two, one for trading and PVP and one for roleplaying.

    I will leave the numbers to the people that oversee the balance of the game. All I ask is that they consider the addition of the power scrolls. Those were not in play when RoT came to be.

    Next time, don't discuss (or even mention) Moderator actions.. past, present, future, or probabilities.

    Cleaned and locked for this thread is nothing more than an avenue for RoC Violations, especially how the OP initially violates it...
