I had to walk away for a few days...cool off a bit and lick my wounds. I didnt want this to be some rage quitting post like it would have been had I posted a week ago. My intentions here are only to raise community awareness. I was one of those folks who lost a crap load of rubble during the initial rubble deletion bug. My situation was basically a perfect storm. Having won a mag plot on Pac, in preperation to xfer to my new home I stowed away all of my very best rubble pieces in my bank thinking it would be safer there. I waited to xfer, there were a few other things I needed to get packed- then logged in and out in mag a few times with my xfering char to see how others placed in Atl at the location I had won on Pac. Meh. Rubble deleted. A month later and untold emails to Mesanna and it seemed like all would be fixed. And in this effort I am extreemly appreciative, however the end result was less then acceptable. What I recieved in replacement was only a handful of what I had actually lost, the remaining items were filled with common graphics like crumbling walls, and none of the items held any weight, they were all 1 stone. Then there were replacements that couldn't possibly have been "verified" such as a rubble cypress tree...yes I kid you not a cypress tree. When I emailed Mesanna back and told her that there were problems I was told that the back up was gone and sorry but she did the best she could. Now I know she is a busy lady, and she does alot for the community, but i couldnt help but feel like I had just been told to p*** off. I participated heavily in the rubble event, I bought what I could when I could to fill in the gaps of the items that were missing from my collection- I LOVED my rubble collection almost to an unhealthy level only to have it all get deleted. I suppose yes I could go about re-collecting everything though I would need over a bil to do so, I think I could raise the money selling everything else I own...but the principal of the matter just chews on me. The amount of pain this whole thing caused me borders on the ridicules, and I am mad at myself that I cant seem to get over it.... I am leaving UO indefinitely, It has stopped being entertaiment, and now is only a source of frustration and anger. I hope that those of you whom recieved replacement rubble had a better experience then I did, and should you see a rubble cypress tree and rubble with 1 stone weight you will know its sad origins.
