    Hi everyone!

    We are so excited to announce the "soft launch" of the new Stratics Interface! It is optimized right now for full-screen display, but is _very_ mobile friendly.

    While we finish tweaking and moving content around, we figured would be good to put one of our public address on the site, allowing everyone to still navigate the older content. All news will be posted to the new interface as all data entry to the older Stratics site has been blocked.

    Here's a video tour of the new interface (clicky for larger view to see better)


    Or you can just jump on over and cruise around! The web address is http://uo2.stratics.com

    As we get content organized and moved around, you will see less and less of the older interface until eventually we point our root domain Stratics.com to the new interface.

    Feel free to post feedback in this thread. I'll check back and answer questions as I can while we push to have everything done. :)

    Updates ~ 21apr15

    Expanded Search options - General Search | Specific Search for Encyclopedia & Guides | Old Item Catalog Search | UO Hearld Archive search
    Added UO.com RSS feed - appears top of the right column on articles & such (not on Encylopedia or Guide entries)
    Player Culture category now active
    Changed "Dream Houses" to "Homes & Castles" which matches the corresponding forum for congruent classifications
