    Although I do not advocate racial slurs, and I hate it when someone is berating another. These post just seem to reek of child playground tattle tailing.. Wahhhh the bully called me names..... wahhhhhh... Just get over it, or in school were you the one constantly getting every one else in 'time out' lol...

    For this reason... test center will never be taken seriously. Some few can ignore it. The only time test is playable is when they are not testing.

    Some folks can ignore it. Some can not.

    The above is my personal opinion. It does not reflect anything else.

    Actually i would like that gms take action there so the offenders take hits on their real shard, it should have the same rules as prodo shards as far as speech goes, here a few minutes ago i had someone tell me "i am going to f-ing R-word your mother, you f-ing N-word"

    In civilized society the peaceful should not "have to ignore" the ignorant rants of others it is detestable to most and should be monitored and be unacceptable In a game we PAY to play.

    just a few points my friend :)


    There are two sides to every story. ( He would of had to of said something to get them to call him names in the first place now wouldn't he? How else would they know his name to 'e-bully' him.)

    If its 1 on 1, who am I to upset the balance of nature.

    Now if its 5 people picking on 1, thats a different story now isn't it.

    Quit your blanket statements for the lose.

    In my opinion, it has become rather apparent that devs and support have little to do with one another.

    One last thing about this comment. In civilized society thats exactly what you have to do. Freedom of Speech. Once again you seem to be a very self centered person. If you don't like what someone is saying move a distance that the words / language no longer falls upon your ears.

    What you are saying is if you do not like what someone is saying in RL, you should have the right to have them removed, as if you are some sort of god or something.

    There is no right to freedom of speech in UO. You seem to be confused.

    Really? Tell me of your side. I will listen.
     

  30. NEVER gonna happen
    ... GMs on test.

    They weren't "responsive" on test, back when "the UO team" >claimed< to have GMs
    Or even as much as a lead/supervisor/gm person to "make complaints to ..."

    They "should have" been using "test" to TRAIN GM's ... dum duh doh?

    did not ...

    See my "join date" ? GMs on test ... is OLDER than that re: needed/wanted/doable/desired

    Older than History

    as a matter of fact.

    Right, no, that response is more general to UO than just test.

    Remember test is where all us oldtimers let our kids play. *grimace*

    Even if I locked this thread, it is not going to go away. Especially with an extended run on test shard. This issue has been here since I started playing, even before.

    I will leave it at this... Bioware/Mythic sends us to a playground, asks for testing then ignores the playground and hopes to get input. All the while, a bunch of bullys run rampant on the playground. With little or no repercusion...

    No wonder little testing gets done, unless the bullys do so. So let's us all hope the bullys report the bugs they find...

    If we had gms on test, all the little kids like toxic would come here complaining about being banned for their despicable language. And no, I don't mean casual swearing, I mean the over-use of racial slurs, bigotry, etc. People who do whatever they can to spread hate and get people mad. This has always been a problem on test. I can ignore personally, but I get very tired of it. But many others can't ignore it.

    joking aside, I'm glad this came up. Not glad for the reason, but glad it made me think about it.

    My youngest has been after me for some UO time recently. They make tailors and do the dress up thing, and make houses, fight mongbats, that kind of thing.

    Dad will be needing to make sure profanity filters are in place and all chat channels are "off" before letting them sit in front of the console.

    Wasn't there a reward system for turning in bugs at one point? Its a shame voon never caught on and there is no in game voice data. Specialized chat channels would only work if enough people were in on the channel. It could be something worth thinking about.

    I am a Stratics mod and an almost exclusive Siege player. I have a thick skin. I can ignore the worst. Some players can not/will not tolerate that kind of abusive language. I can not hold them at fault.

    I got an ICQ from somebody who says there are players disrupting the Japanese memorial event on Sonoma right in front of the EMs and Mesanna, cussing players out during the memorial service, etc.

    Let's see how seriously EA takes harassment even if it is on a Test Server/shard ORIGIN - Ultima Online - Main

    that is to their own policy on harassment, with stiffer and stiffer legislation laws going on the books every day about threating remarks including making idle threats, and racially motivated comments, just how seriously does EA take this type of nonsense on their own servers, Cal and messana both have been sent a message along with a reference number yet messena was online a bit ago and not even reading the message, yes return receipt was checked on the messages. Called the 1-866 number, was told by support on EA games telephone that there was a problem with Ultima Online and that only Billing issues were being handled beyond that nothing was available through the telephone service, which is fishy in itself.
     
  45. The only thing "fishy" is your current "crusade"

    *points up* turn YOUR language filter on ... as directed by your linkage:

    A) you won't have to ask them to stop saying "******"

    but ... if you really really >need to< make the asterisks STOP !!
    Page on them in the prescribed manner ... AS IF there were GMs on test
    because:

    *dusts hands*
    Problem solved ... Player/customer >can practice/PLAY< ; AS IF they can read and follow "rules"

    Bawhhhhhhahhhahhah this was a good laugh. 'little kids' I didn't know little kids had bacholers in computer science, and held positions of lead developer for the organisations they work for. /shrug can back up with proof so w.e

    And by the way I don't use 'despicable language', or 'racial slurs'. Please read my first post before you decide to open your mouth and try to class me.

    All I am saying is you guys sound like a bunch of cry babies. Wahhh wahhh... LoL...

    I agree, people should definitely be allowed to use racial slurs ingame with no repercussions from the GMs. If you're offended by the use of such words you shouldn't be playing a T rated game. Oh wait..:lame:

    Dang, didn't expect you to get all self-conscious on us, not a child fine, I don't care who you are or what you do, lol! Want to look down your nose at people around you who happen to get offended by language, go ahead. I, and plenty of other people here, just happen to be considerate of everyone else who always plays this game.
