    We would like to acknowledge the hard work of UOGuide and all the support they have given UO in the past and the future. Due to their hard work and dedication we were able to speed up the implementation of Item property classifier system by using the UOGuide site as a reference. Special thanks to the UOGuide team for doing such a great job! And our apologizes to them for not calling this out weeks ago.
    The UO Team

    Kinda sad when a dev team admits that they have to skim documentation off a fan site cuz they can't do their own...

    Its an awesome website and the Kudos are well, well deserved! Since I returned to playing I've kept it as almost a constantly open window on the side! Thanks UOGuide! :)

    While I know it's a lot of work, and I do appreciate theirs, and Stratics' efforts, I'm 'dumber than a rock' about something
    what is that?

    It's not sad, it's a smart move :p
    Basically they said: "Why write all the possible info of the game in a new web site when someone already did it?" :D
    In this way the info on UOGuide should be more precise with the support of the devs...

    You must also consider the fact that having only 1 source of informations always updated will be priceless for a game like uo :)

    It is an invaluable source of info. Certainly deserving of some kind of reward. :)

    So what does this actually mean for us? What's an item property classifier system and how does it/did it change UO for the better? Was this system used to create the Shame-loot upgrade?

    I imagine they used the information from UOGuide to update the Player Guide on the UOHerald page (though its not available to us there yet).

    The item property classifier is pretty useless imho. All it does is list the current properties/attributes that are currently active, and gives a short description. It doesn't tell you which items you are wearing have that property, nor does it tell you the total intensity that you are wearing.

    In that case, thank you Mervyn, for all your work as sole contributor to UOGuide.
    Also, thank you for paying the hosting costs, and providing moderation and oversight for all the changes.
    You are a hero of the Federation.

    On a more realistic note; grats to UOGuide, as a collective entity :)

    As a returning player it's been a fantastic help (UOGuide) along with stratics. Its helped me understand the game in much more detail this time around.
