    Look's like Petra donated all her work to Broadsword. Too bad they don't have enough class to acknowledge it. Her name doesn't appear anywhere in the wiki on the uo.com website and it does indeed look like they've started uploading Petra's work (see sample page here and look closely at the house owner name in one of the images: House Ownership – 5. Managing Your Home | Ultima Online ).

    Thank you for all the work you put into that site, Petra. I haven't been playing much lately but it was nice to know that I could go there if I ever needed information on something like a quest I'd never tried before. Enjoy your new extra time!

    Me too, I am sad to see your pages go over to broadsword as your index system has already far superior to that wiki. I went looking for something the other day and spent forever trying to navigate that wiki system to no avail. I knew you had the page I was looking for but either couldnt find it on the wiki if it was there or it just wasn't there.

    I had become to rely on your pages for the simplest way to find RELEVANT up to date info.

    Sadly at the moment it is a LOSS, that doesn't seem to have been replaced, or put into a format easy to navigate if it is there. And yes, the thing I hate about wiki's is you do NOT get credit for the work you do.

    It is just a pity you left stratics as when you were in charge the amount of info that got updated was vastly improved and is to this day a credit to the amount of work you put in. I believe you, and your management bought stratics far far into the updated state that it came to be, with much more relevant info than it had had for years prior to your stewardship and this has not been equalled since you left.

    Well done.

    I'm happy to see all Petra's hard work added to the UO Wiki, a plave where new and old players will look for help. I do agree, it would be nice with a note with credit to the writer.
    Maybe they need to work a little with the seach funktion on the page.

    I agree with all the above. Great they have made use of the information Petra worked so hard on. Pathetic they have given no recognition of it.

    I think if you use the search box on the site you'll find things pretty easily.
    I did post that my stuff was being copied, and I didn't close my site till that had all been done.

    It's strange to see my index described as better, since all I did was shove everything under a basic alphabetical list, with no attempt to divide things under headings at all.
    The whole thing was basically a step back in time, using basic html and css - no Drupal, no wordpress and no other fancy CMS

    Thank you Lady Petra! I honor thee and all the llamas do too.

    I think those Broadsword people are just trying to get out of paying you. :(
