    Well we do now! We have a Facebook page and a Twitter feed.


    Our initial Twitter account will be providing headlines and news items from our UO Herald, later we will be providing twitter feeds for some of our developers and producers. Our Facebook page will aggregate this data as well as make use of the bells and whistles that Facebook offers, such as the event schedule and photo album.


    While these pages will generally “mirror” information off of the UO Herald, Twitter and Facebook will give us the opportunity to provide additional information that is more suitable to those audiences and technologies.


    If you are unfamilar with Facebook or Twitter, you can go to these Facebook and Twitter pages for more information.

    I don't use facebook or twitter, though I still welcome this change to reach out to more netizens via newer media.

    I admit that there are valid security and privacy concerns, but wise users can protect themselves by simply being cautious.

    Hey, any promotion/advertising of presence is welcome :D

    Whats next?

    Myspace? Reaching out to the 13 yr. olds, again?
    Because we all know that Myspace is just a place for the kids
    (and pedophiles) to post and play.

    I was actually hoping that UO would give more info, not multiple copies
    of the same old info. (which most of the time is obscure and outdate).

    Well, I don't know about you guys, but I like the idea! :p
    Who knows, maybe UO will end up with new players from Twitter exposure. It sure can't hurt.
    Glad to see you on Twitter, UO Herald and thanks for following me!

    I think its great the more lines of communication the better and if you all look at the big picture why would uo open these accounts think real hard people its not to hard to figure out! can we say advertisment for SA if I were going to be releasing a major expansion this is what I would do and better yet its free ! wich to me seems to indicate the release may not be as far off as some think !! just my thoughts but Ill bet my last dollar there is more to it than just giving players more communication options!

    I am sure that was the main goal they were after with this move.
    I just get so frustrated that we recieve Old and obscure information most of the time.
    It is a sad state for UO and EA, when their player base is making websites with more up to date/informative information, than the developers who actually make the publishes!!

    I think it's pretty cool - I get UO Herald updates instantly on my blackberry.
    Uh, wait - I don't have a blackberry. =( ...but I know someone who does!

    LOL, Sad Part Is that its true the "team" has never put forth a serious effort keep accurate records or us players in the know.

    We would not need a FOF or have to browse through 3-4 other sites to get reliable info if they put out the effort.

    If you mean information from stratics, then i agree.
    stratics has always been my source for information.
    But if you are talking about the information we recieve directly from UO then i am sorry to disagree.


    And as far as whining? No i do not think that i am whining, I merely state a fact. How you take it is strictly up to your own perception.

    I fail to see the big deal with UO being on Facebook or Twitter and I'm speaking of those who are negative towards this. For how long has there been complaining that UO needs more exposure, now someone makes an effort and some of you still complain.

    Granted I'll be amazed if it makes a difference considering the poor communication and lack of regular updates, but hey, someone is trying.

    Sorry, I did not mean to say anything against those of youth at all.

    Well, and I will disagree with you. I am extremely satisfied with the level of information current team has been providing. I guess there is nothing else to say on that matter except...

    Your dissatisfaction with amount of information you are getting should not cause you to complain/whine/whatever about this. It can only lead to more information, not less.

    Your opinion has been recieved and noted.
    we all have one and none will 100% agree.
    I just happened to state mine.
    I will not persue this line of discussion further.

    LoL after going on facebook and adding them, I began to realize how small the representation of the UO fan base stratics has. I hope the devs notice to because 90% of the people here really need to just uninstall UO and move on lol.
     
  31. Alright.

    You cannot pay me to go anywhere near Twitter, though. :p

    At least I got to plug UO while twittering. LOL

    But Twitter? No way, Jose! Seriously...

  39. Twitter? Seriously? Is one of the UO Devs an Oprah devotee? :loser:

    They really should just all lear to use their own website and *gasp* post there. Newspro/Coranto and Cafepress are really easy to use...

    I find it odd that a MODERATOR, of all people, prefers to troll with words like 'whining'.

    upon close examination of photo albums I think it would be in the best interest of the developers if we all chipped in and sent along some office clutter for them..... really, how do you guys get anything done in all that clean??

    Nor, I am truly sorry to admit, which Barbie I am. Some people really get fascinated by it it seems.

    But I stopped after being sent one and at the end it asked me for my phone number and address.
