I would like to get some clarification to the rules on posting on stratics. Having gone over the rules of conduct, I notice only that a rule exists concerning posting things against the particular games ToS. http://boards.stratics.com/faq.php Considering that Ultima's Rules of Conduct have changed, and no longer even state that the use of third party software (unless it exploits a bug in the game) is against the rules. http://www.uo.com/conduct.html I think the discussion of development status of any apps, especially the discussion of said apps attempts to become approved (through alternate channels, considering the original channel was closed.) Thus, It would be a general understanding that unless a program has been specifically banned, like some of the unattended macro programs have been, it would be acceptable to discuss apps that are simply "unapproved". Any warnings given by the Mythic team would serve as the UOPro warning did, which is that they did not check any of the source code, and make no warranty or guarantees. You should probably not run third party apps that aren't "approved" because they may contain harmful code etc.. I perfectly understand this warning, and EA/Mythic's desire to CTOA. So if we can get some clarification to these rules, I think it would greatly help the community to continue to be productive and peaceful. We must keep in mind, that just because the old application process for UOPro apps has been closed, doesn't mean that someone couldn't find alternate ways of contacting EA, and getting a program approved. I thank the Mods in advance for any clarification to these rules.
