    I transferred a noob character Smoot and deleted the real Smoot by accident. Smoot is Gone!
    had 2 high end pvp mage suits, and rares in pack. and of course 120 magery skills. Billions lost!

    This has brought to the forefront what is pushed to the back of all of our minds, that nothing in UO is permanent, the rares, the gold, the pixels.

    account time expires in February. think ill just not re-up and let the pixels fade into Oblivion.

    :) GOODBYE CRUEL WORLD

    Although nothing may come of it, maybe worthwhile to contact Mesanna to see if she can help.

    At least worth a shot.

    Nope. We won't allow it. Its a hiccup in the road of your UO life. Sit on it for a week or so and hopefully you will come to realize that. It's a setback, and it's disheartening, but it isn't the end.

    Smoot,

    I am starting over too. However, mine was because of Medical and needed the cash for bills, yours was done beyond your approval and by a click. That is just horrible and sucks. I agree, contact Mesanna. Not sure if she will help, but it is worth a shot. She is a fair and giving woman and I do believe she will do something if the urge and the means are there to do so. All boils down to a yes or no. If it is a no, it will put you back no further than you are right now.

    As much as you do for people, I am SURE between us all, we can all help in some sort of way to put you back together with some sort of glue. If there is ANYTHING I can do to help you, please let me know. I am starting over just like you. I hate it, but feels quite fun to regain something you once had. Its a nice feeling.

    You got this bud! You can do this. This is such a permanent situation to a temporary problem.

    Please list what it is you lost.

    a simple shard revert by mesanna would solve this i guess...although a little pain for others on the shard....worth a shot

    We have all had our instances in which there was a substantial loss, or something terrible happened. In my case I had my Museum estimated at about 5 Billion fall to the ground. I thought the same thing as you are now, but I managed to overcome that. I am sure you can do the same friend.

    If you have a dream. I am sure some players here might be willing to get you a token, scrolls, and some gear, and BAM like a phoenix rising from the ashes the new and improved Smoot will overcome all obstacles.
    Before you give up [​IMG]and feel sorry for yourself [​IMG] consider the life cycle of a Smoot with musical accompaniment [​IMG]

    A Smoot was hatched [​IMG]

    He was a happy baby [​IMG]

    He ate [​IMG] and drank [​IMG] a lot

    Until he was strong[​IMG] and ruled the neighborhood [​IMG]

    He partied [​IMG] danced [​IMG]rocked and rolled [​IMG]

    He raised his skills [​IMG] got stronger [​IMG] and fought his enemies [​IMG]

    Once he got the lingo down [​IMG] and [​IMG]he became a full fledged pirate [​IMG]

    He made friends [​IMG] traveled the seven seas of Sosaria [​IMG] and sang songs [​IMG]
    Rising to the position of Captain :pirate: over his own ship [​IMG] hunting for some treasure booty [​IMG]

    He fought the evil empire [​IMG] vanquished his enemies [​IMG]

    But like anyone else this pirate wasn't always careful [​IMG]

    He was just going about his business playing his pirate avatar [​IMG] and doh! [​IMG]

    Oops he accidentally deleted himself [​IMG]

    He thought it was GAME OVER [​IMG]
    Suddenly he found himself in hell [​IMG] on fire [​IMG]but even the devil didn't want him [​IMG]

    He rose to the heavens [​IMG] and all was well [​IMG]

    However this was not the end for Smoot, it was time to come back [​IMG]

    He was remade from scratch [​IMG]
    Planted in the earth and born again [​IMG] much like a ch-ch-ch chia pet, but even better [​IMG]

    He was happy and cool again [​IMG]

    Pixels may not last forever, but nothing can delete the real Smoot.

    THE END

    PS - Yes I was very bored sitting in a hospital room

    PSS - Take your own words to heart, I think they could be applied in this case.

    Like the others have said, please don't quit. You've made so many friends and are such a trusted and respected part of the community. You can definitely rebuild from this unfortunate circumstance, and we would all be happy to help you do it.

    We would all miss you to much if you left :(

    I lost my Zento house during the billing changed fiasco. The house was full of just about every rare I owned, all of my artifacts, and all of my personal suits (had over 20 very nice suits).. This house fell while being told by Mesanna that it wouldn't drop. Its all pixels man everything is all replaceable... Don't let it stop you from playing a game that you love. Just come back with a vengeance and kick more ass!

    UGGG. Thanks guys, I guess im not quitting but boy that sucked. I'm always so careful and hear the horror stories and think "oh that will never happen to me" I guess i was wrong! (i dont think mesanna can / should do anything as it was my own fault)

    The new character "Smoot" will be in a noob suit for a while, and who knows maybe ill go with a different template. I'll be back at it tho. I know people have lost way more but just wanted to cry in my corner for a while.

    Thanks everyone and see you in the game!

    Smoot isn't going anywhere he just likes the attention every once in awhile ;) Just stay positive and look at the bright side. High end pvp suits usually only help people that are good at pvp and a few billion isn't hard to replace so keep your head up smoot. Best of wishes for you and I'm glad you was quick to change your mind about quitting. UO would be missing a great person if you would have did what you said

    You'll be back in no time; pinks make it easy. Gold... easy enough to make again.... and spend again... and make again.... and spend again... :D Don't go anywhere; it's just a temporary setback.

    And this is one of the MANY reasons I love this community! Sorry to hear about your unfortunate mistake Smoot but, obviously the people here don't want to see you go! I'm glad you decided to stay...and let me say thank you to everyone who's offered to help...GREAT community! I do think that they should enable a 2-step deletion process just so this kind of thing doesn't happen, but I'm glad to see you will be back on your feet very soon!

    Just a tip that's saved me more than once; any time you need to delete a character, log that character in first and make sure it's the right one. At least in classic client, the next time you go through the login process, pick the same shard, and that same character will be the default/highlighted one for login, so you can be sure which is the safe one to delete.
