    He asked this on the Castles and homes thread. I know its not like the most important thing in the world but, now its bugging me. Who was Nino? I used this sign in the design competition on Chesapeake and wanted to know if any of you knew who it was or what it was for?

    I don't know where it came from, but I hear it from women all the time...

    Ni-... No...
     
  3. It could possibly be from the restaurant chain in the USA for Italian fine dining...

    I can tell you that the sign has been deemed by the higher-ups as "innapropriate for use in in-game decoration", so you'll prolly be insta-disqualified. Past that.. i'm not entirely sure... the rumor I heard before was someone from marketing near the beginning..?

    Most people don't even know the thing exists, so its not generally a rules provision anywhere. :p

    Only reason I know is I was told directly by Sannio back when he was decorating the Community Centers a few years ago just before he left.

    Well thank you very much Crysta hopefuly my EM will get the email I sent and not disqualify me. I put in over 50+ hours of work.

    (Yes I need to find a new way to make designs for these types of competitions because Paint is such a PAIN!)

    Nino's Magical Sign, just a sign/// but not recommended to own or to use in design constest...

    It'd be kinda stupid to disqualify an entry such as your over a tiny issue such as this (would think they'd just delete the sign and continue)

    ... And I would have serious doubts that the EMs would know that that sign is illegal if it is, anyway.

    Gareth, if they disqualify you over this, we'll storm Dudley's castle and take him hostage until they reconsider their decision...

    ...

    I've only ever seen it in the Inside UO files, that's about as much as I know about the thing.
