    Greetings,

    We will bring down all shards for a short maintenance today at 1:30pm EDT (5:30pm UTC). We anticipate all shards to be back online no later than 2:30pm EDT (6:30pm UTC). The maintenance is to prepare the shards for the re-activation of veteran rewards.

    Please note: House decay is still deactivated. We will post an update about this within the next days.

    Don't we usually get notice in game that they are bringing the shard down so that we can find a safe place to log? I looked on UHall this morning and didn't see anything about this maintenance. At lunch I was hunting toxic sliths and all of a sudden got a client error. It took me about 3 mins to recover from the error and when I was finally able to relaunch UO, LS was not there. :sad3:

    I have gone back through my journal (I am one of those who saves them) from the time I logged on until I got the error and there was no notice. I usually pay very close attention to those kinds of things. And I didn't just lose connection, I actually got the little box saying there was an error.

    However, I am guessing that what happened was the shard NOT being taken down for maintenance since I was able to log back on about within 5 mins later, either that or they did the fastest maintenance I have ever seen.

    I did see the five min. warning so I logged out and came here to read to try to find out WHY all the shards were going down !

    Nothing was here yet at that moment on Stratics, then shortly after I seen the official post came over here.

    I do not know if the shards came down or not, cuz I let an hour pass,
    logged onto my 4 non migrated as of yet accts. but I didn't see the vet reward gump return back on, any of mine.


    Ah well..........whatever ! ;)

    Could you give more detail on this please? Or anyone? There are players still posting problems with billing and their accounts.

    If house decay was turned off around the beginning of August, wouldn't it be until November before the house would actually fall?

    Trying to be clear on this, if a house fell in August, that would mean the last payment on that account was made in May? House decay was on in May, and August would have been 90 days of no payment on an account, correct?

    House decay is the 90 day timer?

    Has anyone lost a house that was less than 30 days late in payment?

    Thanks.

    I've got a house that will decay as soon as it is turned on and I've been watching several housing areas on several shards. The only houses that are IDOCing are those whom people have got a new house elsewhere. There are no houses that are in decay from accounts and as you rightly say, if they were in decay from the account migration then they wont start decaying till november anyway.

    Anyone saying that house decay is happening normally are simply wrong (or mistaken). No-one has anything to worry about yet if they have account or billing issues, ignore those who say otherwise, they are just doom saying.

    And it fell between 4-7pm BST? I've been keeping careful watch and I've not seen any houses fall via normal decay only though placing. Having spoken to several IDOC'rs they are of the same mind.

    I can only assume that this was due to a house placement decay rather than normal decay, if I am wrong then why has no-one alerted the DEV's? Its a bloody poor show if theres an issue with decay and they havent been alerted as those who cant get their account details sorted are loosing thier houses.

    No, it isn't live. As it says in the first post they are preparing the shards for the reactivation of the vet-rewards.

    Idiosyncrasy: a peculiar temperament or habit...

    ............:D

    One may know the law, or the correct rule, and normally abides by it all, 24.7.

    One may be honest, trustworthy and quite the law/rule/abider,
    even grammatically trying
    to normally abide and follow the rules,
    all of them.

    Yet in some tiny way
    they find a peculiar puny way outlet, to break one rule
    just express/define themselves,
    as perhaps an independant free thinker,
    to some way say,
    that they are internally, a personality or personna

    whom is

    a tad like some peculiar rebellious type,
    when they 'can be'
    their personality,
    may become like a rebel
    [with or without a cause].........
    always thinking 'outside of the box'
    simply cuz they can and do, do that.

    And then that peculiar idiosyncrasy
    seems to define them
    as an individual, on any *forums*
    where
    one's personality/personna becomes merely known by

    breaking a tiny rule or law,
    simply cuz it is one law or rule
    that they legally CAN, break.......
    like typing too many ........

    on purpose !!

    Folks may think they're dumb
    or that they don't know the correct way to do things,
    or perhaps one does it, just to comically
    to push someone's buttons, to draw out the forums' grammar police,
    or folks may see,
    perhaps the person knows the correct way to do things,
    but he or she is just comically rebellious, when they can be, by nature.

    ..........................................

    lol;);)

    It ends up defining their.............forum ID/personality
    as unique,
    or just 'comically' ... WEIRD.

    Whom else can claim
    that their *forum* identity/personna,
    became 'known',
    merely from lengthy posts,
    talkin too much,
    or via typing too many................... ?

    :)

    So were you playing the 120 day game with this account? Sounds like it.
