First the news: My game time will run out in the first week of August. I intend to stop playing UO at that time due to my general lack of time to play and the fact that I'll have two new children to occupy what little free time I get. I've already gotten rid of everything I need to get rid of in game, so I'm all set to stop my game at any given moment. There are, however, two issues which need to be addressed before then. 1. UP - This is an issue which I need to take up with Scarst, but I'm bringing it up here to keep you up to date. The issue is this, "What do you think the future of UP holds?" Or "Do we need to change/give/do anything to ensure the guild goes on, or do we hold on to the title roles and let y'all suffer?" If anyone wants to guide the guild into the future, please please PLEASE let us know (Even if you aren't currently a pirate... if you have a solid plan which doesn't alienate the remainder of the crew, we'll consider it). 2. These boards - I can do three things. First I can make someone else the head moderator (As the current moderators will be inactive). Second I can let the boards die out (do nothing). And finally I can get the stratics folk to cancel the boards entirely. As of now, these boards are the only way UP has to get messages out which we want everyone to read. Keep that in mind when you offer feedback. If anyone in UP wants to moderate this board (which takes virtually no effort, I've had to moderate two threads in the entire time we've been here... both on account of a user who is no longer a part of stratics), then let me know so I can take action. I will submit anyone who is active in UP who wants the job.
