Rare Collector's Festival & The Council of Rares

Discussion in 'UO Rares Collector' started by DVI, May 12, 2008.

    DVI Guest

    The new date is Friday May 30th thru Sunday June 1st.

    If you have not submitted your list of items that you will be selling, please try to get that to me within the next week so that I can begin to advertise the items that will be at the festival.

    If you would be interested in auctioning off any of your items please submit a second list with any minimums for each. The auction will be run by YGV vendors and will be done on stratics, not in game. Buyers will still be responsibile to come to LS to purchase their items.

    Due to stratics being down the participant and vendor list has been lost, please icq me (247-299-718) with your stratics name and let me know if you will be needing a vendor. Remember vendors are first come, first serve so reserve it now so you dont miss out!

    Nine Dark Moons, I apologise for the change in dates it was necessary due to the holiday though.

    If you would like you're welcome to set up a vendor prior to leaving for vacation with any items yould like to sell, in addition if there are any items advertised for sale that you might like I can put you in contact with the seller so as to possibly reach a deal.

    awwww, thanks Aspen! the only thing i'm really interested in is the "tacky web" (is it tacky like austin powers or tacky like sticky? i'm guessing sticky...) i icq'd treyster this morning because he's got one advertised on his vendor in atlantic luna (i'm guessing it's his that will be at the rares fest). i'm hoping he might be able to show me what it looks like so i can put in a bid or whatever. i still haven't gotten my act together enough to actually sell stuff at the festival (next time for sure!) - i was mostly just going to participate and hopefully buy a bunch of stuffs :)

    I believe it looks exactly like the Baja Halloween spider web but with a different name.

    I still have not recieved an rsvp from many people, please pm/icq/post a rsvp so I know you're coming and indicate whether you will be requiring a vendor.

    Thank you!
     
  11. DVI

    DVI Guest

    Just a reminder the Festival is only 10 days away!

    So if you haven't yet rsvp'd, reserved a vendor, or given me your auction and sale lists(the sale list is not mandatory, but assists in advertising items and drawing in more individuals to purchase your items) please do so.

    While all are welcome, please remember this is an event to foster increased community relationships and interaction.

    I expect all participants to be friendly and respectful at all times towards all those attending the festival, be they the well known collector, or the unknown player who passes through.

    Failure to maintain a positive attitude and a friendly, respectful disposition during the Festival events will result in you being banned from the proceedings of the current Festival, and all those which follow.

    I take it thats a hit at me?? well iam coming for sure...the first one was great! lets the hope the second is even better.....

    Im the good guy!! Why the bad press is beyond me...I detest the scripters and there illegal ways...I take a huge part in People/player power!!! This is helping fight the scripters and hurt em in there pockets!! If it was not for people like me and many others too, making a big song and dance about the vinecord scandal then i doubt the devs would have done a thing about it...

    Just step back for a minute and consider what good we can do to help UO a better dupe free place!!

    People/player power can do this!!!...and sometimes while doing it u can look out of the ordinary..(like me i guess) ...but i aint stopping the way iam till ALL DUPING and THE 99.99% SUPER DUPED original one of a kind ( but theres 100+ on the market) are also deleted and the dupers take another big punch in the face!!

    Iam THP!!.....(in the tone of iam beuwolf!!)

    It is a general reminder to all players who chose to attend, but especially for those with a more stubborn or fiery disposition.

    We're all welcome to our opinions, but that is what they are opinons, do not try and force them on others, do not preach them, and do not criticize others for disagreeing with you, and most important remember you opinion is not fact unless you have evidence to support your claim.

    It's a shame many of the events are hosted at around 1AM or later (in my timezone). That will make it very hard for me to attend (I need sleep too!).

    I'll try to attend as many of the events as possible though.

    to be fair, JC, what he says is that dupers *may* be attempting to take advantage of the fact that collectors (and their gold) will be congregating on LS... I did not read that post as an accusation

    Vendor's are now available, those with reservations get first stab.

    Also there have been some concerns expressed regarding the time table of the festival for our European friends who are planning to attend.

    I will be reviewing the schedule to attempt to make any possible changes I can to accomodate all participants but please be aware due to the drastic time difference from europe to the west coast of america there may be some portions of the event which may be some what early or some what late for specific individuals, and I apologise for that.
     
  28. The house is just outside Luna's west gate.
     
  29. I'll be over as soon as I get home from grad prac. Busy week for me I hope this relieves some stress:D

    I was looking forward so much to this superb event, just a shame that due to time constraints (8pm EST being 2am my time) I will not be able to visit any of the scheduled events.

    Ill do my best however, and best of luck to the folks hosting this event.

    Ive been to LS, sent a few GP over, and already seen a lovely full set of Tree ornaments there Id love to get.....:)

    Im assuming the house will be filled vendor wise?? shame to see only 1 or 2 vendors with items on

    Good Luck organisers

    Again I apologise to those participants who reside in Europe, but I have to take into consideration the time zone(s) of the majority of the participants, which happens to be EST for myself, above and beyond that I have to consider my personal schedule which happens to include a girlfriend, a full time job, friends, and a heavy gym schedule. So what this means is I have to fit things in as I can.

    On that note, I have pushed the opening aspects of the event tonight forward by 1 hour.

    In lieu of the "A Tale of Murder" which did not happen due to Murphy's Law, we will be holding a Scavenger Hunt in approximately 2 hours (8:30 central time)! Prizes will be announced at the beginning of the hunt. Sorry for the short notice, but come on down! We'll kick off from the RCF house just West of Luna.
