    at banks and gates on LS Trammel. I have paged and asked politely for them to poof. The page was recorded. More are showing up.

    Yes I can log off and can pretend they aren't there. I just thought a gm might think they were a bad idea too is all. Sad times...

    Not much you can do Cyrah. :( GMs are a total joke, and completely worthless anymore.

    Back in the day you could page and they'd do something about obcenely name pets.

    Anymore, you just have to use the stupid filter, cause GMs aren't going to help you.


    Sorry. :sad4:

    OMG! Back in the day the "R" word was a auto-bannable offense!

    I know a female player that used to play on my shard that got permabanned for saying it.

    All she said was in anwser to the question where have you been for the last month: "I was staying with a friend she was ****d and is afraid to be by herself."

    For that she was permabanned. she had 3 accounts and closed the other two.

    Its pathetic the GMs seem to swing to the extremes .

    The animals should just have their name changed by a gm, can't ask them to remove the animal because I don't think they would do that.

    *UPDATE*

    Kudos to GM Fiper!

    He deleted the obscenely named pets.

    I have char on LS named Moogleshtein and I paged on the obscene pets. I was 16th in queue and waited quite awhile before the page was anwser and said pets when poof!

    Cyrah those were horrible and had no place in UO. I've said it before and I'll say it again I pay to play UO the MMORPG not UO the Porno!

    I think that will give everyone a pretty good idea of how bad the names on these pets were.

    Again, Thank you GM Fiper!

    Yes they can according to the UO naming policy.

    The UO Naming Policy is as follows:

    How many GMs are there per shard now?

    I'm sick of the pretyped responses you get now. Giving you a link to somewhere that isn't going to help you in the slightest. Customer service isn't what it used to be.

    Since when were GMs assigned to specific shards? Thought GMs covered all shards in addition to Warhammer.

    I find it amusing that people care enough about it to page then come crying to Uhall about it.

    I'm less amused by people who think moral fiber is a healthy cerial for old coots.

    Re: names on blue animals parked

    Obscenity should NEVER be concidered humorous.


    When it loses it's ability to be it's no longer an obscenity but commonplace... which is the shame of a nation... and we wonder about the future of mankind.

    Wonder no more we live where obscenity is commonplace and concidered humor and its a wonder why when tolerance is no longer tolerated and people are far too happy to be "offended" by the slightest of words including "Merry Christmas" and "God Bless You"... Which are now the words of Obscenity... and telling someone to F*** Off or... Calling others names is concidered humor.

    Go figure.

    It's a shame that animals had to die because of the name they were given by a cruel human owner. They should have had their name changed and transported to an animal sanctuary and little animal jackets added onto them to keep them warm in the cold nights.

    Times change and so does what is labled as bad. I would like to see a hotkey like salute added that allows me to bite my thumb at another player. If it wasn't for Romeo & Juliet being shoved down our throat to this day, noone would know its history. Give it a few more generations and race names will have little meaning. The blending wont be part Polish/German/Irish. It will be something like Spannish/African/Asian or White/Asian/Arabic.

    So lets let the future roll over us o we can find new things to annoy us. Frak Off and enjoy your reason to be nice to others on this XXXmas.

    This one instance supports that UO needs in game policing and not some outsourced link connection. Plp don't all haul down the road for fear of a police car around the next bend. Well players should also have that fear of the unknown when doing something stupid in the game. Be an idot and the "a GM Reaper" shows up from the shadows in plain view and PWNS a fool. "Game Over, please pay again.

    Yes rules are not perfect. And should not be seen as a line to cross. Rules should seen as a fan that stuff gets tossed at. And just how close do you want to get near and feel safe. Mind you there will always be those that need attention and get it by sticky there tongue in the spinning blades. FLAME AWAY

    And people wonder why our economy went into the tank. Because people cheated. Because morals and ethics mean nothing anymore to far too many.
    It's real life, and it's an epidemic. And it matters. And this is a symptom.
