    Since I am partially new (lol) so where are these mods from? Are they current UO players? If so, what shards do they play and what type professions to they prefer.

    Come on...let's make this introduction more complete...la

    Rico already stated it, but can we get a more detailed introduction of the new AND retained moderators, which forums they mod, do they play UO/other games? Please?

    Dmnit... probably my first like of a Rico post!

    Welcome to all New Stratics' Forums Moderators !

    Do we know who will take the care of much of what Petra has been doing to update UO Guides, links, and pretty much many of the resources that Stratics hosts about Ultima Online ?

    That is, if we find outdated info on Stratics about Ultima Online which needs to be updated, who are we supposed to contact for the necessary changes and updates ?

    perhaps a wiki-format like the one at uoguide could be used. very efficient, no staff resources required.

    I don't know, as a long time user of Stratics I have always appreciated a different perspective to present resources as that of UOGuide.
    I like UOGuide a lot, sure, but I also like the way that Stratics so far has presented UO Guides, resources etc.....

    I am not sure whether I would like making Stratics' UO resources available in a wiki-format.... When I want that I browse UOGuide....

    What I am trying to say, is that I have so far liked the different way that so far Stratics has presented the resources for UO via Guides and so forth...

    That's been looked at before but there are issues to consider. First off if anyone can edit, we'll be spending all our time verifying and cleaning up after trolls, integrity of the information found is paramount. Secondly Wiki's simply aren't cut out for what Stratics does.

    well you and popps are right, UO guide already has that format so maybe stratics wants to be more different / permanent. however UO guide also is much more up to date, and if resources are a problem a wiki might be the most viable option for stratics. it wouldnt have to be exactly the same as UO guide.

    No worry of trolls / integrity. like UOguide, a user would have to be "approved" before being given access to adding to / editing the wiki. in essence, all approved members would be stratics volunteers. I myself have vast knowledge of the game, and love to keep up on current changes, however the current / old format of having to submit anything to the stratics editor for approval just isnt worth the time for me. If im taking the time to write something up, i want to know its going to be posted and not have to go thru hoops. Im sure at least 20 or so long time users would take advantage updating info, and would be much more efficient than having one person have to drag thru every single publish. it just isnt fair to have 1 or a few people do that when it could easily be done by the community.

    thats just what i would do, its also not my website so really doesnt concern me.

    I get the benefits of a Wiki style format, and it would work if Stratics was just UO. This is something that was attempted once in the past, where each game we covered had it's own Wiki style portal.. It simply didn't work well. Wiki formatting is vastly different and much more complicated than the Wordpress we have now.

    If you want to look into getting stuff published here, ask about becoming a content creator or writer. Yes anything you write would have to get a once over from an Editor, but I'll let you in on something. That's largely to look for glaring errors (they happen), readability, and to make sure they do well with SEO so we get better rankings on search engines. What it all boils down too, is we want the content that appears on Stratics to live up to our standards. Yes things do wind up out of date, and need revamped, and that could be done with a various users via a Wiki, but it's much easier to have staff on board doing the work, people we can reach to make edits before it's approved for public viewing than to try and contact random people on the internet and then hope they make corrections/adjustments. People we can form relations ships as part of the Stratics Staff family and all work together to support.

    get it. hehe yeah too slow for me at this time. if i feel "inspired" to bang out a guide in 15 mins, just the needed email / contact to see if the content was already being worked on would would kill it. it might take 3 days to get something up, where it could take 15 mins. not for me, but i hope you find some dedicated staff. i think it would be very hard to compete with the speed and efficiency of a wiki, especially without paid employees but hope it all works out.

    I agree that stratics method is technically "better" if it is functioning at 100%, however in this day in age, people want stuff fast, now, not like a week after content comes out. Its Very hard to keep up with that especially with a volunteer staff.

    Oh and sorry to derail this thread a little bit, didnt mean to do that lol


    WELCOME TO UO HALL TO ALL THE MODS (sorry Longtooths i know the rares forum is much more comfortable)

    While new to UHall these are not new moderators. I think there is some misunderstanding here. These are folks who were already moderating elsewhere and are taking on more responsibility.
