    Based on the original thread from Mesanna below -- we should know and have our codes by the end of the day -- have we heard about the East Coast shards yet?


    Posted by Bonnie Armstrong | 2012 Aug 25 19:14 -0400 GMT ​

    To help us celebrate our 15th year anniversary we have come up with a nice piece of art that will be the reward for this writing contest. We will be picking 5 winners from each shard. The players that write the best story about their most memorable moment in UO will be sent a code to redeem for one of these robes.
    The rules are as follows:
    • Must be between 250 to 500 words
    • Deadline September 15th
    • Essays will be judged based on originality, content, and how well they capture what is special about the memorable moment they have chosen to describe.
    • Winners and their essays will be announced on the Herald
    • Codes will be mailed to you by Mesanna by October 6th
    • Mail your entries to your shard Event Moderator. If you do not have an EM on your shard, please email your entries to barmstrong@ea.com
    Good luck to everyone and we look forward to reading your stories. Here

    I just have seen that they have announced the winners from other shards.....so at least we would know if we have won or not via that communication.

    You have got to be joking right... EA/Mythic actually doing what they announce they will do... have you not paid attention the last 15 years? They could not even get their RTB turned on on schedule. The entries have only been turned in for 3 weeks, not nearly enough time for them to stay on the schedule they announced. Obviously they only had time for a couple Asion shards and the Austrailian shard that had a total of what... 6 or 7 stories to read... but then again, that is assuming alot... that they actually read those stories since everyone from those shards won.

    I don't think they should do anything else, other than just communicating that it will take longer if necessary....

    I also don't want to turn this into a battle between developers and players --- just a more open form of communication if things are not on schedule. I'll put it this way, I know that if something is not going to meet a target deadline, and I don't inform my clients/manager....I should know that I will be reprimanded.

    As a side note -- I spoke with EM Bennu on Atlantic yesterday evening after the Blackthorn event -- the entries are still under review. I'm sure it is taking time based on the volume of stories for some shards. I understand it is probably a lot of work, but it would also be appreciated if there was some communication stating that there is a delay, and if a "new" deadline could be set to manage the player's expectations.

    I know the staff is trying to improve communication to the players --- here is a good example on how you can improve. No one likes to be in the dark.

    I know someone who won on Oceania, and they have not recieved any codes yet. So do not take it as no email yet = you didnt win.

    That should give the old girl plenty of time to read all the stories, so when she is fit and well again everyone should their robes.


    Get well soon Mesanna
