    In light of recent postings regarding personal issues some people may or may not be experiencing I would like to take a moment and thank everyone involved here at Stratics and at Broadsword for creating and maintaining what is in all actuality a very secure and safe gaming environment.
    I have been playing and posting since day one and have never once felt threatened, endangered or even slightly hassled in any way.
    I have even encouraged two of my teenage children to play UO and they have both had nothing but great experiences and are fairly well known on my home shard.
    Cheers to all involved!

    Well Stratics certainly runs a tighter ship than the general UO chat which can get pretty out of hand.

    UO needs to go back to filtering some of the player names as they did in the past...

    I remember when a counselor would snatch ya up and haul you off to jail for stupid names. If you tried to log or something they would just rename you something even stupider but not offensive, lol. Ahhh those were the days....

    I believe I still have a character named Aiden for that very reason.
    A gm apparently did not like the name of my character IronBalls Mcginty.
    Who was a character in one of my favorite movies

    They do. Someone took the Christ away from my Jesus in the last couple years.

    Now how will everyone know the GM of The Church of Latter Day Saints ([LDS]) is THAT Jesus?

    I would like to reiterate the OP. Many thanks for many great years, and the kiddos well, they aren't kiddos anymore, but they remain my kiddos, have always had fun. That's an effort I hope to revive.

    I regret not being able to name a char Lusiphur, but someone, presumably, still holds a copyright to Poison Elves. So it goes...

    Biggus Dickus from Montby Python s Life of Brian. My thief. Renamed by a GM into Phillip (wrong spelling!). I was quite upset. But Mesanna helped me! I like Mesanna! She rocks!

    I used to run with a pair of guys named "Tree" and "Stump" on Pacific when it first opened. The three of us terrorized those new folks trying to make the lemming race of death from Trinsic gate to West Brit. One day in the middle of the usual slaughter, Stump disappeared. He returned later toting the name "Fred". GM claimed that somebody reported his name offensive to short people. XD Tree was pretty depressed.. so he was sure to dry loot everybody for the rest of the day. ^^

    Does UO jail still exist? I haven't thought about it in over a decade.

    That's an odd occurrence because if memory serves, you cannot cast spells in jail. You can attack someone melee though. :)

    This situation is most likely the REASON that jail became a no-cast area.
