  2. Stratics is pleased to introduce a community Article Management System (AMS) to the forums! AMS allows users to contribute articles about profession templates, houses, pvp, or a variety of other topics. This is a great way to showcase your ideas that require more space than a typical thread. Our staff can also feature articles and promote threads into articles (when appropriate). We are pretty excited about this feature and hope you will be too. It will allow the community another way to express themselves and contribute to the growth of the game and community! For information on how to submit an article, read this article.
  3. We've put our heads together to simplify the Rules of Conduct (ROC) from 23 items down to 8. We hope that the new ROC will be more intuitive and easier to remember. This should also help us to improve our moderation by focusing on fewer items. We are always striving to make Stratics better and to encourage communication and participation. We think that you'll be happy for this improvement. Thanks for being here.

(OT) Trying to return

    Well, I am trying to return, but it ain't looking good. The patch in mid March screwed me, since I knew nothing about not attempting to patch normally by starting UOA. I am on dial up, which cannot change, so don't even go down that road... and I uninstalled and deleted eveything. I reinstalled from the last disc, shamefully 5 years old...and patched for a week and a half only to encounter the same problem. of course, EA Support/Tech help is a joke, I have spoken with 2 people unfamiliar with UO and they offered nothing that I haven't already tried, isn't common sense, or an obvious solution. It is ridiculous when I know more about the product that I am asking help with than the tech support crew. You'd think after 15 years, multiple accounts and thousands of dollars, I could call a toll-free number and say "hey, since your pencil necked code monkeys borked the patch and corrupted my files, can you send me a disc with the latest patched up version?" and all would be hunky-dory, hokey pokey. But whatever.

    In short, I am working on it, but if I don't get this sorted out in the next few weeks, UO/EA/Mythic/Whoever gets my money will stop getting about 280 bucks a month from me. And no, if I go, nobody gets my stuff except Ahmaya's player. If she stays.

    Did you try downloading the client from the mythic site instead? Not sure it would make a difference and sure you have tried it. Guess I just wanted to say hi old friend.

    Yeah, i had to resort to that. Just finished last night at 10, started the DL shortly after the original post. Seems to have worked. Unfortunately, while I was straightening all of this out, we lost the Tanglewood house. Currently trying to track down the important rares and RP related momentos to replace them. :/ It's always something... Hope you are doing well. Are you playing? Is there anything to come back to?

    I have not been playing UO, and not sure what there is to return to. The EM's still run an occasional plot-line, and there is the UO based story of some sort. (bored me to tears) But I suppose better then nothing. I still hold the Rest on my last remaining acct. (having a hard time shutting down my main acct. I am a sentimental old fool. Well, a fool at least. ) The other buildings were dropped to dirt plots, and when no one wanted Aegis, just left sitting. A few folks still play from time to time, but seems most of those we knew well have moved on. If you and Ahmaya do decide to log in, let me know, I would be happy to stop in for a visit, or open the Rest for a night of relaxation. Hope you get most of what you lost back, I know it is all pixels, but they are your pixels.

    We did get most everything back! Luckily, we knew most of the IDOCers who snagged the important stuff. And we are playing again, so we'll be around :)
