    yeah, me too. I have just seen Uhall down to one logged in user a couple of times today. I have to admit I have never seen that in all my years as a mod. It may be my settings. I dunno. I just have never seen one person alone on Uhall.

    No I was spending hours on end trying to catch up on naming my Dragons in the Dragon Cave...

    I swear I'll never let that go like that again!

    Honestly, I've noticed the numbers of members online in UHall at all-time lows recently. A little depressing really.

    Isn't much going on in Uhall other than a lot of pancakes and complaining over something or another. It's gotten old.

    The natives of Sosaria are not happy. The last three purchased releases of new game material were bad, problems are not going away, and cheating and disgusting behavior are obviously sanctioned by UO since nothing real is being done sbout it but to punish those who annoy the GMs by reporting it.

    I'm going to take the GMs & EA's advice we keep hearing about and leave the situation by going elsewhere. My going elsewhere, not just my characters.

    Good advice when taken far enough.

    I noticed several months ago when I started hanging out here again that the population was only a fraction of what it once was. Makes me sad.

    Why shouldn't UHall reflect the game?

    Also there are probably I'm gonna guess that at least 75% of the players of UO that do NOT post on stratics... and of that 75% that don't post at least 50% don't even read stratics..... EVER.

    Now sadly given the fact that many people have been banned for giving websites in-game one can not even advertise a good website because of all the bad apples who have ruined that for everyone else.

    Sadly the constant daily spammers spamming about the illegal websites are still in-game everyday filling up Gen Chat with their messages... day in day out... 24 hours a day.... every day...

    But something good like Stratics goes on without so much as a mention.

    Sad isn't it?

    Well christ what do you expect when you are biting everyone! That crap hurts!!

    Serious note though, I too have seen the number decline. I'm sure the outage while brief did not help much.

    *Chuckles* Just testing something last night. The population of Stratics had a sudden and distinct drop. We were checking to make sure every thing was working as intended.

    Happens every year. Holidays, graduation & weddings, vacation periods. Then toss in several recent big game launches. And sites in general take a traffic hit.

    Apply peril sensitive sunglasses and don't panic.

    This. I know I've been crazy busy lately with the holidays and stuff. I've barely had time to play or even lurk on Stratics. :(

    We had a couple of dozen registered on and more than that unregistered. It dropped to zero users on Uhall and only 8 on all of Stratics. It just seemed odd to me, and given some of the recent issues I just wanted to be sure.

    If any feel I have set a bad example as a moderator...

    UO Stratics can be advertised in game all you want without a GM being able to do a damed thing, as can any of the official fansites. Its pretty much the only perk of the program at the moment.

    Ha, that looks just like one of my cats from the past. The black one that is. I currently have a white Himalayan that sits up against the wall just like in the other pic.
