From another thread, which is a statement that makes no sense. Petra, either you're putting out misinformation by saying that this is a valid statement or the rules have been changed. It has not, for as long as I remembered been against the rules to buy UO gold/items for RL money. Its been banned on Ebay, sure, but thats for other games sake and they won't make an exception for some rinkydink small game like UO. Its not allowed on Stratics and other sites, which is of course their own policy and one that was instituted because of the hassle of having to deal with fraud and scams involving RL cash. Whats not been allowed is to obtain the items/gold through cheating, though these are two different things that sometimes overlap. Its also not allowed to advertise it in game, but you aren't allowed to advertise many things PERIOD in game. But in all, it has never been a bannable offense to sell or buy UO items. (except for a short confused time way way back), so unless something has changed recently, then the above two statements are in error and I dislike misinformation being spread, especially by semi-official sources.
