    Promathia, dont let this dishearten you, your a vital part of the Atlantic shard. I know if I lost my collection it would be very hard to keep functioning.
    Keep your eyes open, with the rares fest couple days away, I will try and watch what comes across, but thats quit a list to watch.
    Didnt anyone see the player in your house? You have any clues to help us?
    Let me know what else we here at Toad Town can do.

    Well I am sure you are not after sympathy but you WILL get it from me, that's shocking and I feel for you. Good luck with the recovery, sadly I don't play anymore so cannot assist in game ;)

    I'm going to make something very clear and I'm sorry if I come off harsh.. This goes for everyone: You don't trust ANYONE EVER with access to your account and/or item's! I'm sick and tired of my friends being ripped off because they go and trust someone. I'll say it again, don't trust ANYONE with that kind of access... EVER! I don't care how long you've known them, how close of friends you are, what they've done for you, it doesn't matter AT ALL. YOU... CAN'T... TRUST... ANYONE... EVER...!!!!!!!!

    PS: You don't give out real information about yourself either. Such as your last name, where you live, birthday, etc. All of these things can be used to compromise your account. The email linked to your EA account names should be an email address you don't give to ANYONE. You should have a different password to each one of your UO accounts. The password to your email should NEVER match one of the password's to your UO accounts. Never setup stupid easy security questions based upon real information for your email, and UO accounts. If you're able to, you should make your own question's and the answer's should never match real personal information of yours. Now for the password itself: The password should have both capital and lower case letters mixed in along with numbers and even symbol's if it'll allow you to use them. Also, this password should never patch anything personal about yourself that someone might know.

    I hope this helps everyone stay safe.

    Unless I'm misunderstanding, this isn't a password issue. His account hasn't been hacked, someone has abused their house access.
    I guess the moral is, if someone decorates for you, always re-lock down everything they've placed after it's finished so that only you can then release it.

    I can't even begin to imagine how I would feel if I lost all of my precious rares. I can't say I am surprised by this news, but I am so sorry that this has happened.

    I am so tired of the bad guys winning all of the time, and I hope that karma kicks the person in the ass who did this >_< :cursing: Please let me know if I can help at all.

    Big FYI here:

    I havent been very active in UO for awhile - Items were taken around 1-2 weeks ago.
    Only ONE person had access to my house (Friend/coowner)
    Only ONE person had come and help me Deco (By helping me lock stuff down and decorate)
    The ONLY items taken were the items the other person had locked down
    This ONLY person is conveniently "last online" on icq to me around a day before it happened
    This ONLY person also conveniently is no longer a facebook friend around the time this happened
    The items ARE being sold by people in the SAME guild as this person

    So for this person to be telling people "They didnt do it"

    Yea...

    Please don't keep your house private for too long, it's a shame to punish the masses due to a lack of honor in a few. I for one love the easy jump to the abyss from several of my friends houses. Tho that pesky tree gets me annoyed, I end up in Luna when I want goodmans.

    And to those involved, your time will come, you have been marked. If your in the guild involved I would D find C my way out.

    That really sucks :/

    Well, i just want to share something about house security. I just tested it just to know if its still working as before.

    1) I coowned a friend on one of my houses.
    2) My friend used "i wish to secure this" on a box with items and on a weapon item on the floor, he didnt changed the access on the box so its "owner only". (this means, he can open the box and I can open it too, because im the house owner)
    3) I removed him as a CoOwner, booted him from the house and since house its public he did enter the house again (when u enter in a house, the house check the access you have and gives you the corresponding security access)
    4) Since he doesnt have any kind of access, he can't use the "retrieve" option on the box or on the weapon (retrieve option comes from the context menu when u single click any item on a house) and he can't open the box.
    5) Now the fun part (not really, not fun), I gave him Friend access.
    6) He can open the box (it was secured as "Owner Only" and UO still keeps a record that he was the original owner so it makes kinda? sense that even being a friend of the house he can access a SECURED box.
    7) He can't use retrieve option on the box but he CAN use retrieve option on the weapon and get it instantly on his backpack.
    8) If, on step 5, I give friend access to another character of my friends same ACCOUNT, he still can do the steps 6 and 7 on his other char.

    Bug or Feature? who knows.. im sure not even the devs knows how it should supposed to work.

    Reality is, like Petra said before, after someone does secure or lock down items on your house, if you want to make sure they cant claim these items you NEED to release all of them and secure/lockdown them using your account.

    Removing a coowner/friend of the house doesnt remove the ownership of the items that person secured or locked down in your house. In fact, you could think you are safe because you do remove all of yours coowners but if that person gets friend access on another character of the same account then that person will have the same ownership access to the items he did secured or locked down.

    So again, only way to really protect yourself is to make sure you personally have secured or locked down the items on your own houses.

    Does going into customize mode and committing again change the access on secured items? I think it used to.

    I have a friend who is customized and had this happen. She is in the process of fixing the security on all of her boxes and items. It seems ******** that we are forced to do this, but to be safe do it any time you customize.

    Sorry this happened man. If there is anything I can do to help, don't hesitate to ask.

    P.S.
    If you wouldn't mind PMing me the person name, it would be appreciate. It really bugs me that people can and will stoop this low. Sorry again this happened.

    I have updated my icq status to reflect the names involved + the guild. Its a shame that a guild the size of the one in question has shown no interest on purging themselves of thieves. Of course, knowing their history and other past scammers in such guild, it really doesnt surprise me.

    BTW New update: The people who did this can be seen wearing the items in Yew on ATL spamming LOL.

    Not hard to miss, also not hard to miss their guild either.

    It's a hard pill to swallow, but just ignore them. People of low character flaunt things that they do to gain further attention. Their deeds are known and their names are being passed around. The more they get recognition, the more powerful the feel. So ignore them, kick their dust from your feet and move forward, forgetting they exist, yet aware of their putrid presence.

    This same person was on a lot yesterday spamming Rares Fest Auction Ends this Sunday, I went and checked the house out and half the bids are all fake to begin with and I pray others do not fall prey to perhaps having them sell items thinking its ToadTown *the real Auction for rares*. I am sorry this happened and hopefully karma gets around to kicking Her in the ass

    Thank you to all the people who have offered to help or donate items. I still have quite alot, so I dont think its right of me to be taking any handouts, but thank you.

    Yes I am aware of the items being sold, but hey, its better if you guys get the stuff right?

    Anyways time to move on. I reopened my museum on ATL a couple of days ago for people who want to go/use it. Have fun everyone

    Thanks Solus, it is very generous of you to let everyone use your house to jump in and out of the dungeon, and to Navery, and to have a beautiful museum to look at and hang out in. We are very grateful for that :heart:

    When you get divorced you change locks passwords and such.
    Apparently you feel differently that when you break up with someone instead you trash talk and expect no retribution.

    How is that working for you trash talking them anyhow? O they stole from you?

    Who would think someone would do something back when provoked?

    Compassion for stupidity is a lol

    Except I never "trash talked" the person. Plenty of other people did, but if you knew anything you would know that I was always one of the people defending them.

    Silly me

    Sad to hear this happened to you.. Thank you for taking the time to post it so that it might remind others to watch their access lists a bit closer.
