    Dear whoever deleted the letter
    Google docs shows a revision history, the letter can be restored.
    Thank you for your valuable and mature input.

    Everyone else.
    I went to sign the letter and found only a blank page.

    I see Miranda managed it.

    Someone seems to think it a good idea to keep removing the signatures. I will monitor the revision history and restore them

    If anyone actually wants signatures removed please send me a pm so that I keep those off.

    Sorry Petra. I should have known better. I just thought it would be a cool place for crafters to gather every now and then.

    There are 3 ways to get ahead in the world:

    1.) Work to build something.
    2.) Steal it from others who work to build something.
    3.) Tear down the works of others so that you look better by comparison.

    You work to build things for the community (#1). Despite the #2 and #3 mentality people, the only time you loose is if you give up.

    Keep up the good work my friend. :thumbup:

    My guildmate Ulani, told me it kept refusing to load for her, over and over.

    Anyhow, she had 'hoped' to sign the document, as well.

    LOL, as I was reading the letter, I noticed some of the text was getting deleted by anonymous user 88. Once they deleted they made a comment about Stratics in real time.

    I did have to laugh at the pure immaturity shown by people. God I am glad I don't play this game anymore and thus don't have to deal with children like that...la

    It was defaced again....I deleted the big red block of text and the link to the shock site just so that's not what people see when clicking the link, but you're going to need to revert again :/

    It was you the last time??

    I'm fairly sure I know who was defacing it. Currently you can see it to read it, but you can't edit it.

    Good question, actually, since 3 chars = 3 accounts. But I think we better stick with one vote per player.

    It may be too late now, but I took the liberty of creating a form that can be used to allow on-line signatures and cannot be defaced.

    People can, of course, add junk entries.

    https://spreadsheets.google.com/vie...Q4My03ODU1LTQ2NzItODI2YS1kZmU5YzdiMzZjOGQ&ifq

    I can take this link down if you would like, Kelmo, or transfer ownership of the form and spreadsheet to you.

    If nothing else, this should be a good template to use going forwards Kelmo.

    Just wanted to let everyone know I did receive your request, and I don't mind doing it but just lowering the items is going to be a little messy since they are on top of each other.

    I would love to make you an area in Britian near the xroads passage in the field near the mountains. If you guys really want a social crafters gathering place.

    Please let me know.

    Thank you Mesanna and Kelmo and everyone else for helping to keep Siege alive! :thumbup1:

    PS - Thanks Kat!

    Mesanna. Thank you. If that that place can not be be fixed then another place would be awesome. I just thought that little place would be good as the bank is just a step away. It is also in a guard zone... Siege crafters are good at surviving in the open, but any bonus is a plus. *winks*

    What I had in mind was a place crafters could gather and help service the shard. It harkens back to the old days of the village smithy. Remember those days?

    One of the things I remember from when I first started playing 10 years ago was the smithy.

    That was then... I will never forget the elderly fellow at the D.C. meet up some years ago. Yes, I flew to Baltimore for that one.

    EA rolled out the expansion that ruined crafters about then.

    I will never be able to forget his impassioned request...

    Keep crafters viable.

    Build us a spot... We will show.

    k, Mesanna popped into the shard and spoke to us through general chat but we wouldn't say 'yay' or 'nay' till Kelmo had a chance to see what she was proposing.

    The area she's suggesting is by the mountain where there's already a forge. It is in guardzone, but rather further from the bank. I wonder if she'd be prepared to include a banker in the deal? We're to email her when we've decided.

    Yeh, I was thinking of a banker NPC as well.

    There's one near Wrong as well from the old arena there. So it shouldn't be to much to have one at this new place.

    If it would be easier for her to just re-locate the wrong banker, would that be a problem?

    We also have that unused never used huge home some EM placed on Siege some time ago that is called Crafters Hall or something by the Brit moongate. I think it also has *built in* a way to shout bank and bank in there too.

    It already has *moongates* to go up to the upper floors, I think it has other benefits built in, but there are never were any *addon deeds* ie NO looms, NO forges, NO anvils, NO ovens nor water troughs nor flour mills for chefs.

    One could even stick a public soulforge in there or new arcane circle for weavers to use, cuz it has lots of room, but nothing any crafters nor any one else could use, was ever put in there yet.

    And some *blue* wandering healers are all over the area, should anyone *blue* DIE near there np, or perhaps slap in some ankh for dead reds should they expire in there, to get a res. easier perhaps.

    It could be turned into a true workable USEFUL building, 'for everyone', or to gather say once a month to sell their wares or items or rares or to make things for free for newer folk etc., if some one, some way could actually place addon deeds in there for folks to USE, and permit whatever to make that spiffy building USEFUL for us all, besides it being an empy EM built building up from the Brit Moongate, that has just sat there useless for all this time, that none of us can really use, as IS ! The building is already UP and been there, it just never really reached any potential of being really USEFUL but maybe it could become that way !

    Just an idea ! :)

    There are a couple of houses near Brit, including the one you describe from the same owner.

    But I'd to see something built new.

    And this also avoids any bugs with housing.

    Actually there are lots of EM built homes long abandoned since they quit being EMs on many a shard, here included that just SIT THERE.

    They probably should've been removed, if they being used for nothing and the EM has left the building and the shard and not being an EM any more. There they sit, all over just takin up space on the land, on every shard, usually slapped down by EMs where player homes can not even be put down, by a long gone EMs. :(

    I would LOVE to place in that space here, for a real players home, on Siege near brit, where that EM building just sits there, empty devoid of life ! LOL

    Ah well one can dream !

    Just been checking the crafters area and not much has changed recently, but I'm guessing thats because Mesanna is busy with the final part of this Event series.

    Hopefully she'll be able to finish it off after this event stuff.
