Random, Pointless Question

    While I am doing other things, I am deeply curious: how many of you would have your faith in the universe shaken if I stopped doing the f-word-themed FoF titles? I kind of want to quit it, because frankly I'm running out of family-friendly f-words, but I hesitate to break a pattern. What do you all think?

    (Hey, I told you it was random and pointless!)

    How about changing it to a new letter other than "F" while still keeping it themed?

    Well since the universe in itself is pretty random.
    Go for it!
    The alphabet awaits you.

    I've wondered why you stuck with it so long, myself. As long as they're still on Friday, I think people will get used to it. Just keep 'em catchy.
     
  5. Noooooooo , Jeremy has Fizzled on us....... Woooooooooooooooooooo.... [​IMG]



    You know what could be neat , Since theres alot of new people , have a mini Q/A with one of them , 2-3 questions or something , in addition to FOF..


    The current setting is nice but needs something like this:

    1-2 new player type questions , 1-2 deeper questions , something based on upcoming plans..
     
  6. to be honest jeremy.. It doesnt really need a theme and I dont know why you troubled your self in the first place [​IMG]

    Five on Friday (subject/dated)

    [Insert 5 Topics] (blah blah blah)

    Youre kidding right?

    Its the content of FoF that is the problem ... I dont give a flying fart (no pun intended) what FoF acronym you use.

    Plus, there is 1001 things wrong with UO and you ask if anyone would be bothered with THIS?

    Un-freakin-believable.

    The name is seriously less important than the possibility of actual information.

    Personally I say don't spend your time wracking your brain for FoF riddles and spend it spanking the developers and the suits to give you more solid information for the content.

    I didn't realize they were themed.

    I read the first few you did, there seemed to be some good info in there. For a while, it was mostly fluff and I didn't bother reading. The game mechanics stuff is pretty good, not necessarily because players don't know but because the developers need to know.

    Sven silently sits slumped over on Siege waiting for seven vials of miracles for skills gains .............sitting sitting silently slumped over Sven waits on Siege for ROT to serendipideously serfing sloooowly to higherskills gains, serenading that same song for some swifter upping the cap and skill gains per day of ROT on Siege.

    Sven silently sitting on Siege waits the seven vials of miracles, shouting at a toymaker there is no Lake Haven here and seventy seven who's down in whoville all named lol just voted himself king of factions seventy times seven times more Sven waits silently for seven vials of miracles...................still on Siege strumming it's song, Siege Siege Siege skills gains ROT fixes to be born as Siege awaits.

    Suddenly Sven is face down in the soil of Siege life in him is gone...slaughtered by a stealther tamer........... shouting "Suga all kill."

    Poor Sven........ !!

    That should teach Sven to unattend macro on ROT his bard skills on Siege. [​IMG]

    The end !

    eh, if the 'F' theme is done, it's done. If you come up with another theme to have fun with then go for it. I do, usually, look forward to the information in the weekly article. So keep that coming and I’ll be happy.

    Change the letter to .... "G" - "Great Googly Crafting!" "Great Caesars Ghost" (resurrection/death topic?)

    &lt;in Sesame Street voice&gt; And this show was brought to you by the letter "M" and the number "5"!

    Great! Well I guess Ill close the rest of my accounts. As soon as something good is associated with UO it gets nerfed. No more Alliteration. Now I have to be dumbed down. Great!
     
  22. As long as you keep it going (the relatively high "useful" to "fluffy" proportion pleases me greatly, and I wish my fellow players appreciated this more), as far as I'm concerned you could title it in Klingon.

    Klingon? Hmm.... That'd be tricky. I could probably do it in the Old Tongue, though. Or possibly Orcish. *scans bookshelf* Lots of ideas...
     
  25. i agree with the general consensus. i don't think that it so much matters the letter just the content of each FoF. however if you could keep the letter theme going it would be nice i suppose. another thought on FoF how about letting the users submitted question requests? and perhaps addressing one at random?

  29. Until this post I never realized they were all f word themed
     
  30. Guest

    Guest Guest

    there were themes?
     
  31. it used to always mean five on friday lol

    that name is totally dated, though and as I recall the whole "different f'words" thing was a joke because someone someone got the acronym wrong.

    I think it makes a lot of sense to title the FoF according to its content rather than trying to come up with f'words.

    Can we do casino night? That's always fun... [​IMG]
     
  35. I think I can handle it, maybe with a shot of cheap vodka....

    The alphabet is yours to abuse!
     
  36. *blushes and hangs head in shame* sorry jeremy until recently i limited myself to posting on my home shard and the trade forums... i'll try to be better observant next time!

    As long as a handful of questions/answers are in the FoF... I'm all good.
     
  39. The title doesn't matter - the info does.

    I can tell ya for sure that topics in here do make it to FoF if it's one Jeremy and/or others think is a good one. At least a couple of mine have made it.

    'I'm running out of family-friendly f-words'

    This made me chuckle... Even when I didn't play UO I looked forward to the FoF and even the title, kept me up to date I guess. I look forward to what you come up with next!

    *blinks*

    You're gonna make me CHANGE???? OH NOES!! Whatever shall I do??? *grins*

    I think that you did a great job coming up with the FoF Titles, very catchy and meaningful, but I can see the problem with running out of them.

    From this last one:

    Finally Friday
    Fletching, Finally
    Fearsome Frailty
    Fount of Facts
    Happy New Year (OOPS!)
    Documentation Frenzy (Half an F!)
    Year in Review (???)
    The QA Teams Special Requests
    Fond Farewells
    Feast then Famine
    Finding Fatalities
    Fencing under Fire
    Falling Fundament
    Former and Future Faces
    Future Features

    AAANNNDD the list goes on.

    I think you've done well with the F themes but yeah, enough is enough, give your brain a break!

    ...

    It was cute in its own way, but if the creativity along that vein isn't there, then don't push for it.

    In short, doesn't bother me one way or the other.

    I think it's funny how people say UO keeps losing it's character and traditions after EAM took control...
    and I kinda agree with it... Devs nicknames and other things make UO feel like the game it is.
    But then you come to complain about how "frivolous" and "unnecessary" this question is...

    You people are nuts, I say! Nuts!

    But on the question, I think it was a great run with the F titles... and I imagine it's getting hard...
    But instead of abandoning it altogether, why not always keep the "2 words with the same initial" thing... and then go alphabetically
    you know
    About Armors
    Bringing Basics

    and so on...

    You could name it the "Weekly Trash Report" for all I care so long as you make a nice longish post every week preferably on Friday, detailing all the new stuff you've learned, new things buzzing about the office and all... let us in on the "news".... and answer a few questions from inquiring minds... that is all I need.
