    In two weeks my semester is over, then my episodes can begin again! Let's hope the pictorial saga is worth more than 2 pics and a few words!

    You have good steals. I am sure they will be.

    Actually let's hope that he is not the only one with good thefts (I'm just starting in this but I hope that someday I'll be on the TotM)

    well, you will certainly be in it if you compete. Perhaps through skill and cunning you will also win

    stole 7 faction artifacts from a sloppier purchaser on ATL.

    He was buying artifacts from the faction turn in and I was stealing them as he went. Poor slob bought the orni three times.

    I wasn't looking for the title, I barely steal anymore. In fact I was only there for the purpose of lifting a few sigils when it happened.

    You make the assumption that your posts brought life to the forum...la

    Life to the TOTM, yes. Ever since GED stopped posting, the TOTM's are dead. How about you post some of those wonderful faction arti's you steal so much Rico?

    P.S. Don't ask me about why i haven't been making steals, my computer has been screwed for the past few months. I'm also thinking about making an Atlantic TOTM, with cash prizes. But yet again, that will have to wait until my computer is fixed.

    this forum IS for atlantic, as well as for every other shard. This seems pretty typical for summer though- everything slows down, and some names you won't see again until the end of summer. Pickings will be slim until things pick up.
    Sorry to hear about your computer. I could get along without mine- but certainly would not want to.

    Yeah, but I'm wanting to make an atlantic-specific TOTM, because I'm only on atlantic, and therefore can only give out prizes on atlantic. As an active, successful thief, I have literally infinite gold lol. I say infinite because millions more is just one steal away.

    I've always said when I got everything I want in UO I'd start stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, the robin hood role pretty much. I usually hand out literally about 20mil a month to random people, thieves, and newbs. This atlantic TOTM would at least put good use to my money, and promote more stealing on atlantic.

    Also, I've been doing fine these past few months without my computer. I've been known to just disappear from UO for no reason for several months on end, lol. My only regret is that my guild is slowly fading away, judging by the online roster. Hopefully I'll have my computer fixed by next week, and I can get it up and running again.

    Because since the TotM has been changed, there has been no reason to compete. TotM should never have become a polling topic on this forum. If the mods don't know enough about how to vote for an item with story, then they might as well have cancelled the program altogether. It appears the posters here have done that for them so they don't have to make a tough decision themselves...la

    Ahhh, but they did.....why don't you check the feedback I received from countless other members of the UO community -- thief or not.

    One of my victims gave me close to 15 million on his home shard to create a thief and help establish a guild.

    I've had close to a dozen come to Atlantic to learn my tactics.


    So did I bring life?

    :danceb:

    Yes I did.


    What have you done?

    :eek:



    UBERFAIL!

    This is getting way off track. It needs to get back on track, or this thread will get stolen as well.

    There are no pics.. some refuse to post out of criticism, others because they feel the stories behind the steals don't seem to matter.

    Hello Rico- hopefully I may clear up some of this confusion! I have contacted the people above me on this subject. It seems that the history suggests that you were contacted about this issue, and did not rise to the occasion. No effort was made to address the totm in spite of the queries of playing thieves. Petra therefore re-instituted it, and made it a voting participation of any and all playing thieves. I considered making it a mod decided issue, but the risk, and temptation- of making this something that some personal agenda or belief could decide was just to great. Not that this had happened in the past! And certainly not that I might fall victim to this peril. It is just that human nature is just to fragile to trust!

    So I decided to follow the path that Petra had created, when you decied not to re-create the totm. I am hopng that everyone will decide that this is a fair, un-biased, and community balanced way to decide things. After all, this isn't "my game", it is a mmorg game, with many players particpating.

    Knowing your, and every players' adherence and devotion to the rules of conduct; any other reference to this subject will be deemed discussion and questioning of a moderators actions in the future, and will be handled as such.

    Thanks all.

    Hey mods.. if you pay attention you'll notice that the TOTW/TOTM thread hasn't been updated since February, when Petra was kind enough to take over.

    Get your act together.

    You are refering to the history. I am not sure whether that will continue or not. Is a running history of past months essential?
     
  27. Sweeney

    Sweeney Guest

    It is tradition.. I would say yes, a listing of players and the items taken is. Keep a list of people who claim to steal things but when called out cannot provide proof.

    The thieving tradition is what kept me motivated.

    No, it's not essential. The history can easily be viewed by just using the search function.

    As for this comment....
    I see you might have an idea of how you would prefer things. Obviously, this statement would make me jump right up and take care of it immediately.

    Personally, because of this statement, there is no way I would make a list of the history as the forum can be easily searched for TOTM or TOTW. You also might find the most folks are more amenable to doing something if they are asked rather than told.

    That being said if you think this is an absolute requirement for the tradition and sanctity of the forum, I would suggest that you can make your own history post and update it as well.

    Q

    If noone thought the history of past steals was useful please let me know. I'll apologize again for my inebriated posting the other day. I was just sorely disappointed at the lack of updates.. why have a TOTM/TOTW if nobody records it?

    Yes someone could do a search.. but for new thieves who do not search but look, it would be especially nice to know that their exploits can and will be recorded if good enough (albeit without links to the individual posts [I would like to see links to the post with pics]).

    If my forwardness makes you not want to update things.. then you have let the little guy get to you, and I seem to have too much power.

    What Sweeney is trying to explain is that it isn't just a "recording" of steals, as much as it is the Hall of Fame. Without the Hall of Fame, the TOTW/TOTM falls apart entirely. Whether it is by moderator or poster, someone needs to update the Hall of Fame/Shame if the TOTM is going to continue.

    Well said. I can only hope the moderators feel the same.
