    I don't either. Does this mean I'll be left out of the loop?

    I got burned out in face book in less than a month. I hope this move works. I just won't be there.

    Same here, most likely. I mean it's not hard to start tweeting and all, but I sense the folks who are watching that all the time will be the early birds for the worms.
    Probably a good move on their part. That's the kind of player that is predominant in this game. I've been touch and go as far as staying anyways because my play style leaves me low on the totem pole, and I just have a hard time enjoying this game as soon as I start wanting more than just basic play, such as chopping wood. I dunno :bdh:

    Don't worry guys - it will mainly be just an additional way to get the good word out and interact with players like you :)

    Admittedly though it's pretty fun once you get into it but I can understand how it's not for everyone.

    If you use it - we look forward to talking with you, otherwise, we'll still be here :)

    Meh,

    I'd say it's more habit than work at this point, I just have a few extra Firefox tabs nowadays ;)

    But happy to be here!

    Aw, don't worry I'm following you!
    And the rest of the gang.

    doing so did confirm to me that EA fired most of the UO only team and had the
    remaining WAR guys pull double duty... Not your fault though!

    You don't need to tweet to setup an account to follow people.. Although it is rather sad.. *grins*
     
  16. That may have interesting pvp applications. Eg. 8-hour temporary stat-loss or skill-loss from the stink if you get hit by a Legendary Garbage Engineer's special attack.

    Facebook isn't that bad...

    I found out earlier via Facebook that Draconi saw "The Crow" for the first time last night, and was blown away....

    To add on to Mapper here, you don't have to even have a Twitter account at all to go read tweets.

    UOS here could also deliver the UO and Mythic tweets here on the UOS forums using a RSS feed.

    Isn't there ALREADY an UO tweet?! One that has been used for 4 weeks and lays dormant for over 6 months now?!

    It would be fine if they said: last time went bad, we start anew. But trying to sell us something as new and cool, when we alread have the same thing and it's not working out.... that's... well... b******t!

    unemployment numbers came out today at 10 pct. down from 10.2 pct. real unemployment (meaning those no longer eligable for unemployment pay and still out of work) is higher than 16 pct. 15 cities top 15 pct.

    my point. lay off the lay off comments. he can't talk about it and probably has enough to worry about anyway.

    Apparently neither does UOHerald *edit* ah now it's showing for me :)

    I'm DCWIZ on Twitter if anyone local to DC wants to check me out :) (I cover the Washington Wizards)

    And for the dinosaurs or self-titled dinosaurs, Twitter is basically a micro-blog, it's very user friendly and not at all complex like Facebook. Only thing you have to know about Twitter is around now there are lots of spam messages and issues like that, but any public Twitter account can be read with ease.

    If anyone owns a website dedicated to UO I can also help you embed UO's future Twitter account into your homepage if you can't figure it out
     
  22. Hail all!

    Does anyone know if we're ever going to have Five on Fridays again? Does anyone know who our "current" Dev Team Members are?

    Thanks,

    Hi Arafel - it is my understanding that, for now at least, the FoF has been replaced by the "As The Devs" forum here on Stratics; http://vboards.stratics.com/forumdisplay.php?f=480. From what I have read more questions are being answered and with more regularity than with the FoF. There has been some debate around which is better, but for now this is the best option. Will the FoF return in its old form still remains to be seen.

    Happy Holidays!
