    Festival/Bazaar requires participation
    Wednesday, November 4, 2009
    By EMSeppo

    Hello Baja,

    We need more people to sign up for stalls and other planned activities for the Fall bazaar. We cannot have a bazaar with 4-5 people participating. That would be more of a circus.

    The stall signups are especially woeful. Every single day I witness players spending hours spamming their wares at Luna bank in front of a crowd consisting of largely AFK players. Why not try your luck at the bazaar for one day in several months instead? Not just for selling your wares, the potential is almost limitless as to what you can do and achieve. However, very little of it is possible without active participation from the community.

    Consider this as a challenge to expand your horizons, look past all the unnecessary labels (Tram, Felucca, PvM, PvP, RP), and play the game in its true spirit for at least a few hours. I am looking forward to a rush of sign ups from you and your friends in the coming days.

    Seppo

    Probably should put the Fall Bazaar on the events calendar. I've finished a deco entry, bought a house, moved my entire vendor shop, wrote 3 report cards so far...I dunno where half my stock is atm (all hodge-podge)...

    I don't think that I could pull off getting something ready for a stall.

    Perhaps the lack of registrants is an answer in itself. Perhaps folks would rather not. This must at least be considered as a possibility.

    I would sign up but the hunting season is getting shorter and I need to get that elk and fill all my deer tags. I'd rather hunt in UO

    I would've loved attending the bazaar and participating by having a booth but due to the horrible lag I've been experiencing at night and sometimes on the weekend, it makes it almost impossible to plan anything. There are days I get my chores done around the house and look forward to playing UO only to find that my latency is so high, there's no playing. I still hope to attend some of the festivities but I can't commit to a booth while this problem is ongoing. I do hope that you get enough people to have booths because I'd hate to see these go away due to lack of interest.
     
  6. Not to be a spoil sport but, notice how many houses have fallen? The shard is slowing down drastically. Ok i haven't been around forever BUT in the almost 3 years i have been around, I have seen numbers dropping.. just my thought on the matter.

    I was supposed to stay over at my parents' house and help them with some roofing, but the materials weren't delivered in time, so now it looks like I can attend afterall.

    Whether or not y'all can man a booth, I do hope people will attend. Sure, the shard's been quiet, but the only way to beat that is to show up, have a great time, and maybe meet some new friends. It's by promoting the community that people will continue to log in, day in, day out.

    Because you guys are seriously depressing. Geez.

    *big smile* I plan to be there with my lag monster in tow. You just won't know it's me because I'll be on one of my alternate characters that few will recognize. Will you be able to spot me? We shall see. :lick:

    In the end Baja came through with flying colors. We're just a bit of procrastinators that's all. LOL. Was a great time with FANTASTIC attendance.
