    Would you please add my name under both please. Assia Penryn

    Many years ago I was an admin for the trade section. It was when we originally split and made separate shard trade forums. I've also held other titles over my many years and multiple times volunteering... News Manager, Reporter, Moderator

    While I am no longer a volunteer, I have put 1000's of hours into it and would appreciate being remembered. Thank you. :grouphug:

    I'm slowly working through the archives to confirm who was staff. People will be listed on only one of the two sections depending their highest level on contribution. So if you were a reporter then became a manager or administrator, you will only appear on the Past Administration section. If you only ever contributed as a reporter or moderator, you will show up on the Past Staff section.

    The way I'm confirming is by going through the archives which date all the way back to 1998. I seek out a staff page and compare names. I will only post if a name shows up on a previously published staff page as I cannot confirm by any other avenue. If Rico was staff *cough* when I find his name listed on a staff page, then he will appear on the Past Staff lists.

    It takes a wee bit of time to go back over everything. Some people only contributed a few months while others years... so I'm having to check every archive resource I can get my fingers to find. I will do the best I can. :)

    i like how it has 'staff alumnus' on my badge here in the forum but does not have me listed on those lists.

    hello left hand meet the right hand.

    those lists should go a little more into detail too, no?
    some people only did one forum and some people did many.
    its a totally different job. doing a shard forum is cake. doing a forum like uhall is like wearing a bacon covered suit in a piranha tank.

    i should know i did the Sonoma, Factions, Felucca Tavern, Bard and Uhall and that kept me hopping around.
    then id talk to others who only did one shard forum and they would not doing anything for 6 months.
    its a different amount of contribution - thats all im trying to say!

    I am going to sticky this thread to avoid me having to hunt everything down again and post in new threads. :)

    The listing of past Stratics Volunteers on the Stratics Team Page (http://stratics.com/team) is a way of acknowledging and appreciating the hard work and dedication by the hundreds of people who have together made Stratics what it is today. It is only by the whim of the corporate entity owning Stratics and the willingness of the current staff that these names appear on the site. There is no "requirement" for acknowledge. Consider the lists as an homage to those who have given their heart to a community and game they love from those who feel the same who strive to continue the legacy.

    If a past Stratics Volunteer does not appear in these lists at this time, it may be due to the fact that gathering the information supportive of an individual's contribution is not always that simple. Records are, at best, scattered. The best way to ensure a particular individual was, indeed, a Stratics Volunteer... is to hunt down and scour through almost 18 years worth of internet archives. This is no small task.

    There are two lists on the Stratics Team page dedicated to the past volunteers:
    • Administration (Seniors, Administrators, Managers, Executives, etc.)
    • Staff (Moderators, Editors who were not Managers, Reporters, Staff Writers, other non-Managerial positions, etc.).
    For the sake of clarity and to avoid really jumbling the lists to the point of never being read, the listing of past volunteers will be compiled as such:
    1. All volunteers will have only their Stratics nik-name listed a single time in one of three lists on the page
    2. The only lists that will display on the Stratics Team page are...
      1. Current Staff
      2. Past Administration
      3. Past Staff
    3. No real names of any Stratics volunteer will be used
    4. Only Stratics nik-names that display on a previously published Stratics Staff Page in archives dating back to December, 1998 will be listed
    5. All volunteers will be listed in Alphabetical order with the exception of Current Staff, who may be displayed by section of responsibility
    6. If a past volunteer started as a Reporter, but was eventually "promoted" to a Managing Editor position, they will find their name moved from the Past Staff tab and moved to the Past Administration tab
      1. This applies to all other "promotions" of volunteers. See list item #1
    7. Positions past volunteers served as will not be listed, as many past volunteers wore several hats and helped in many ways that go over and beyond their "official title" within the Stratics structure
    8. As the Stratics structure has changed several times over the years, the only people who will show any "official title" will be currently active volunteers

    The only way I am able to confirm who is past staff is by going over the oldest archives and only if that staffer was listed on a static page as staff. Most data-fed archives are eternally lost as the databases behind them are utterly gone. I've started working from the oldest archives (in 1998) and am still going through them. As of this post I just started to get into the Y2k archives. This process will take time until finished.

    A quote about the restoration process from another thread:

    To clarify, the content being restored will be prioritized:
    1. Ultima Online content has higher priority over any other game ever supported by Stratics
    2. Archived forums that can be converted to Guides
    3. Archived forums that relate to Player Events and Activities
    4. General Archived forums
    There are other categories, but that is my current priority list.


    If a Stratics Volunteer appears on any of the Stratics Team lists and wishes to be removed, we will honor a PM'd request to myself @Kirthag and/or @Ron Bron
    We will not remove a by-line on previously published materials or change authorship for those who have changed names.

    If anyone has any general questions about the Stratics Team page and the listings that are general, feel free to post here.

    I was a reporter for LS for a while, it was cool to see my name in there.

    Unfortunately, my old account is long gone, so I had to make a new one. :(

    Not quite to 2009 yet! But when I reach there and verify the files, then by all means Speranza. :)
