    The Banishers of Evil [BoE] on the Lake Superior Shard has lost their first guild home.

    Bantham, Rayek and Zycon spent many hours making plain dresses and saved up enough gold to be scammed out of their first fund collected to a person selling their deed. Then saved up again and had the deed stolen out of Zycon's backpack seconds after he bought it. Then after saving up again and sneakily buying a deed Bantham proudly placed the the little house with a forge and anvil in it right in the center.

    [​IMG]

    It was located in town limits and was close to the mountains.

    The BoE was so big then that we held our weekly meetings in the farm field. We would spend countless hours sparring to get each others skills up. Wresting, healing, fencing, parry. BoE built BoE back then. It was truly a group effort to get everyone's skills up. Our weekly hunts were exciting as we were a large group and helped everyone by sharing our knowledge of how to set an instant recall macro! F1 cast recall target rune!

    We all made our first money off of our little vendors. We each had something we sold. Shovels for Bantham. I sold fresh bone armour sets from Deceit.

    We dubbed it #1.


    #1 is gone now. Not sure what happened. House #2 is still standing fine. no houses traded. no others placed. on LS or any other shard. The little house that was close to it is gone as well, but there is an L-shaped close by in town limits still standing that has always been there.

    No need to speculate. It's just gone. Can't bring it back.

    I asked if anyone else had a multiple house account, one guy replied, I asked if he could check his homes, no reply.

    Bantham can finally move into a bigger home now. Even move to Trammel!

    Check your homes. Double check. Make sure everything is hunky dory!

    Thanks for listening,

    Gidge

    *heads off to gather gold to move Bantham... never thinking we'd move him*

    I'm sorry that your house disappeared Gidge. It's hard to lose a home that holds so many memories.

    Maybe the loss can be compensated for somewhat by moving Bantham into a nice new split level 18x18 (or even bigger).

    Good luck finding your new place.

    I honor thee! Well said!

    I would suggest/offer
    THIS report bears further documentation
    E-Mail Mesanna, and request a short report from the upper kingdoms
    just the report now, mind ya! *winks*

    *pats your hand* I am so sorry dear for your loss. Did you report it to the proper athoritys? Your home should still be standing, and yes I have seen another post reciently of a gentilman who asked the very same thing. He too had a grandfathered account and lost a home from its ranks.

    I would PM Mesanna, and at least have her look into it... I'd hate it to have been a codeing error that will hit willy nilly any grandfathered account.

    It wont get it back.... we all know the uo rule on that one but she might be able to find out why it went poof.

    not sure how everything is connected or not connected, but I had an unusual difficulty this morning.... tried to log in to my main only to find account suspended

    background: cc info changed recently, account was due for payment so I did not update info because...... had two gametime codes attached to account, totaling 120 days..... I was safe for a while, I thought

    checked account page, codes are gone..... hastily enter new cc info, and all is well

    call customer support and I'm told that there are difficulties with codes disappearing.. the rep I talked to told me that the very same thing had happened to him

    but, could this (which, he says, they are working on) be connected somehow to the grandfathered houses?

    for a house like this one I would absolutely call and give them the information about it, you just never know..... if they're gonna replace my codes, which he said they would do, and your account falls into the same corrupted computer glitch, perhaps there is hope

    Apetul, It did not fall 2 or 3 months ago. I admit to not visiting it much, but recent enough to know it was there at lease a month ago. It had not had vendors in it in over....*thinks* 10 years? (the picture is ancient, that's me in the shadow armour :D Cen in the purple and Mykal in the blue) We had actually converted it and customized it. A 2nd year veteran flag still marks the spot as if still attached! I was actually going to link another set of the house teleporters in it and that's how I noticed it was poofed.

    I will send a message to let them know of the home falling if it will help determine a prevention for others.


    Rock on UOers!

    Took me like 5 mins to search some icq conversations (damn slow icq history) to know that little house fell 04/29 and thats 2 months and some days ago. House owner was "Figment".

    Thanks for the exact date, regardless albeit irrelevant. Figment is my husband's pvp char. Not sure what your point is. I know it fell, it's gone. doh. What ever you do, don't rely on me for time frames, even more so Bantham. He swears one day = a week. and I quote...."But I just took the garbage out yesterday!" or is that one week = a day. hmmm...

    Time flies when you are having fun. :)
