    I would like to take a moment and dispel a rumor that was derived from a comment made in sheer ignorance. The "Name The Roads Contest" received a total of 9 submissions each containing 9 names for each of the roads. The 9 roads were clearly marked in the color coded picture located in the original contest post. 1 road name was selected from each entry so.... 9 road names.... 9 entries.... 9 winners... still with me? This means every player that entered won, THUS dispelling the rumor that "only my friends won". The person who originally made the comment didn't even want to put forward the effort to enter and support the contest. Obviously the only things they put effort towards is complaining and griefing other players projects for pleasure.

    *(Also a special thank you to WildStar for saving my butt and playing Gareth tonight. My connection to UO was unstable and I couldn’t stay connected for more than a few seconds.)*

    I thought your contest was quite fair, Lord Gareth. As the king himself stated, you could have just named all the streets yourself! The contest was open to everyone.

    Also, at one point when the king addressed me and I started speaking, the same individual who accused you of cronyism was tapping his foot! Tsk tsk!

    It was also advertised on UOForums
    http://www.uoforums.com/uo-chesapeake-shard/100335-new-magincia-name-roads-event.html

    And I am sorry that I'm friends with almost everyone on Chesapeake, it probably has something to do with my willingness to be helpful and supportive to players and their projects. If someone is trying to do something that promotes the community, doesn't matter who it is could be my worst enemy and they ask for my assistance I do what I can to help without expecting anything in return.

    Here, starting July 22. A full month ago. Was he supposed to sit in chat and spam it? There is currently no really good system to reach large numbers of players ingame, especially with such complex information as what Gareth posted for his contest (with the color-coded street map).

    I've advertised the hell out of events and gotten only a few participants. I'm talking books, runes, ingame chat channels, ICQ, Stratics and a couple other forums. There was recently a large multi-day player event that I didn't even hear about until well afterward. This is not a failure of Gareth, or me, or the other event runner, or any player, but stems rather from the lack of an easily accessible, universal, ingame centralized information hub.

    Hopefully the upcoming governor message boards will help with this somewhat. Stratics, being the semi-official UO boards, is the closest thing we have right now. I'm sorry you missed the contest. I'm sorry I missed the multi-day event that I missed! But accusing Gareth of foul play because you didn't see his posts over the course of the past month isn't fair.

    Don't feed the trolls please, the contest was fair and advertised. Enough said about it, don't need to explain it to him further.
