    Your 'Designated Driver' is handing the 'bus' over to someone else.
    Farewell all, and best wishes for the future.

    See you in Sosaria.

    Short and sweet... smells like a dismissal - shame if it is because Petra has done so much good on this site this past few years! It is actually, IMHO, the BEST site for UO now :)

    With new ownership usually leads to new management as well. Nobody but those involved in the back end discussions of Stratics will know what was discussed, (unless of course that information is leaked >:)), so speculation isn't going to do anyone any good...la

    very sorry to hear this Petra - you have been a mine of valuable information ever since I returned to UO and I wish you all the best.

    hopefully will see around in game - but if not take care and good luck.

    Shame you cannot undo all of your hard work of late. Stratics seems to have contracted the stupidity virus from EA . You will regret that you fools. Big hugs Petra

    Petra, you've selflessly donated so much time, effort, wisdom and incredible guidance to this forum over the years I can't imagine what it's going to be like without you. Thank you for all you've done. My heart goes out to you.

    The fact that Petra has posted once and not left any other comments, smacks of an involuntary removal.. no?

    Ok, to address the conspiracy theorists, did I jump or was I pushed? I jumped.
    Well, hobbled. I'm getting old you know.
    Yes, Riply, I'll be on Europa - or sometimes Drachs, or maybe Siege, but certainly in Sosaria somewhere.
    Will I post? I don't know. How long do you think I can hold out before I live up to my 'special' post count title?

    Thank you, Petra, for all the hard work you put into Stratics. I've relied on your guides too many times to count over the years. I hope this change will give you a lot more time to enjoy the people and activities that are closest to your heart. And I hope you'll also get some great and enjoyable opportunities to use the many skills you learned "on the job" here at Stratics. I'm glad you'll still be playing UO. Maybe by now some of your grandkids are old enough to play with you (more than just building houses!) and you'll have the time to enjoy doing that with them.

    Petra.
    the lady who not only gave me a ban but made me a moderator.
    i still haven't decided which one i should be mad at her for!

    i certainly wouldn't wanna be the next person in line to try to fill her shoes, i would speculate that would be an impossibility!

    I feel like the Stratics world as we know it is collapsing....first Tazar, then Taylor, now Petra....strange that three of the top level staff leave at the same time, but I guess changes happen sometimes :(

    Thank you for all your contributions to Stratics and the lives of new players around the world Petra, we will miss you. :woman:

    Well things are always changing and this is a prime example of how the changes are not always for the better. With all the others I regret your leaving and wish you well wherever and whatever you now do.
