My House Is Condemned?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Singlarad BSR, Jan 20, 2012.

  1. My account went inactive for a while. During that time my house entered condemned status. My account was reactivated yesterday but remained condemned. I thought no problem it will be okay after server up. Well turns out it's not. I paged a GM and I am not even getting the queue message. Any help or thoughts?

    Can you transfer it to another account and transfer it back? Otherwise you better start calling Customer Service. I wouldn't wait for GM's.

    What time yesterday did you reactivate? I have read it takes some accounts up to 24 hours for all of the servers to catch up.

    This quote is from this thread: http://vboards.stratics.com/uhall/259360-%5Buo-herald%5D-update-housing-decay.html

    So if it has been 24 hours, I would definitely be emailing Mesanna and probably contacting a GM also.

    Did you try refreshing (opening the house sign and closing it) and opening doors? Good luck.

    Another way to refresh your house is to use the resize command. You will have to move all of your items out of the house as they will drop to the ground. If your house is improperly placed do not use the resize command. Your house wont fit. Again do not resize with items in the house, they'll drop to the ground.

    I've accidentally condemned houses in the past and resizing solved that problem.

    Not sure I've ever seen "this house is condemned ", I guess that refers to the house's name, not it's actual "wear" status?
    I'm thinking condemned means the account got banned or the owner hasn't logged in in 3 months, and someone else is refreshing it. if it is condemned, it cannot be refreshed unless the owner logs in?
    So just the condemned ones fall, first? When? First thing this next Mon. morning?
    Then more later on?

    Any time I've placed a new house before collapsing the old one, I get the message "This house is condemned" when I enter my old house.
