    About your first question, yes. Things in private homes that are not in a secure or locked down state will disappear after a period of time. Always make sure to lock down or secure anything in your home that you don't want to lose. As to your second question I cannot answer that but you have to pay separately for each account you want to reactivate. If the account is old you may have to contact UO customer service to reactivate it. I am sure someone with more knowledge than I will give you a better answer to this problem.

    Items do decay - quickly for some (Newbie items) and a little longer for others. If I remember correctly, the only items that do not decay are those over 255 stones. Hope you did not lose much of value.

    I see our friendly staff here has been busy helping you out.....
    Alot has changed over the years and I guess reorientation back to uo life was a bit lacking....
    Before you do anything your not sure of ether come here and ask or use general chat in the game to ask others. if all else fails... there are tons of stratics pages full of info and uoguide is great help too. :)

    used to be fun back in the day, used to load up ships full of bags because nothing would decay. now everything useful decays :( but on the plus side stables don't require you to refresh pets anymore. but can't stable packhorses w/ items, haha.

    There is a brand new forum here at Stratics specifically for anyone having trouble with account management. An EA/Mythic rep has been assigned to help out anyone having difficulties. I'd recommend posting your issue in the new forum for expert help. The new forum can be found here.

    While training crafters you can craft a bunch of items in your home, drop them on the floor and they will decay in a few hours.

    I have a small piece of blackrock that has been on the floor for months though.

    Aye. Blackrock is one of a very few items that never decays.
