    This coming Saturday at 6:00 PM EST, Stratics will be hosting a Google Hangout to discuss the State of Stratics. Basically, this is an opportunity to inform the community of the goals for the website in the coming months. I plan to provide a brief overview and then open the hangout to discussion. We've got a lot of exciting stuff in the works and we hope to give you a taste during the hangout.

    I'm sure there are a lot of questions about the future of Stratics in light of the recent change in ownership. Taylor and Valour Corp did an awesome job building the community and I hope we can continue the trend. In preparation for the State of Stratics address, I'd like to hear your questions. I will not be responding to the questions in the forum, but will attempt to answer the questions in the hangout on Saturday. So, please post your questions here and we will make sure we can provide a thoughtful answer on Saturday!

    Join us at:

    Will Stratics be more focused on building up the communities of the games that are already hosted on the website, or expanding the forums to other types of games and communities, like Playstation and Xbox?

    Will there ever be an auction format to post auctions in? Sort of a pre fab for people that like to host auctions on stratics.

    Will there ever be a PvP only section on stratics?

    Will EM events ever be categorized into a calendar format so we can see all shards events on one calendar?

    Will there ever be an actual stratics app for mobile users? Not tap talk.

    Will vendor search in game ever be linked to stratics trade forums?

    But most importantly... Really, How awesome is @Flutter ?

    FLUTTER WINS!!!!

    I'm looking forward to see the goals for the forum.
    I would love to see a chat options like Facebook have down right corner.
    I also look forward to an update to the new Guild,/Town/Community forums, special a public wall would be nice so someone who want to join a guild or a community can post there or someone who just want to communicate with a guild.
    Also the Event system on this new forums only have 400 char for an event, that's not much. Maybe allow a community/guild to pay a little for the forum to release more features.

    Are their any intentions to create a template for auctions, or a seperate module if you will ala ebay? Additionally will there be a way to report positive/negative activity toward other clients?

    Any intent to have a one for all calendar for EM's to update events on?

    Thanks,

    One thing that stands out above all else here. From the above posts its the UO community that's the main driving force for stratics . Stratics is a great source of information for Ultima Online full of helpful guides and information.

    Is there any plans to take on new staff that may be dedicated to another MMO. Expanding Stratics into new areas like Archeage, which at this point in time has no single website covering all the players needs for guides and info. Archeage is equally complex as UO and like the early days of UO there is no player manual, its all down to player discovery.

    are there plans to restore the search feature to include the years 2009 up until the switch over? especially for rares collectors being able to look up previous sales / posts on an item for reference is invaluable.

    Would the new owners ever consider making an unmoderated section with loosened up TOS and ROC for adults who want to let it all fly? Heck, charge a couple of bucks a month to verify the users are over 18, stick a no porn rule on it and let the trolls and anti trolls really get down to business some on all kinds of topics.... betcha it would increase the traffic ;)

    Are you going to restore all the things that were broken with this latest migration and save/protect all the hard work of the volunteers done for Stratics especially the history?

    I am indeed interested in the future of Stratics. How will we join the discussion friend? I have to tell you that my shipmates and I have found Stratics most helpful in understand the game play of UO and it's many facets and dungeon travel. "Thank you" very much! ~Blind Tom,UP/ Shenzin,CVL/ Gallion,ALLY/ Jhakar, K^S.

    I'm going to tackle this since it is about how to join the discussion. Ron Bron will be conducting his State of Stratics via a Google + hangout and also if I'm not mistaken streaming it via our Twitch Channel view-able on Stratics.tv. Both formats, twitch chat and Google +, will provide the opportunity for Community members to submit questions beyond those presented here which as he stated above he will attempt to field as time permits. The best method would be to get a list of concerns and questions etc. together from yourself and your shipmates and submit them in an additional reply to this thread and then tune in to see if and how they are answered.

    Yes, the entire event will be broadcast on Twitch. So, for a limited number of days you can view the stream in its entirety at Stratics.tv or twitch.tv/stratics. We will then create a highlights video for our YouTube channel.

    FYI - Since RonBron will be ding the Google Hangout, I'll be managing the Twitch stream and chatter - and plugging it into the Hangout.
    Kinda hard to manage video streams to two different services. :) Tried that once - my computer hated me for days after that!

    Looking forward to this! Whee!!!

    Will Stratics ever be recognized as the "Official" UO forum? Will Stratics actively work with Broadsword to make that happen?
