    UPDATE

    Okay the person in question returned all the pumpkins and I thank him for it.
    No, he didn't throw them in the trash. I saw him take the pumpkins yes, but I reach that conculsion after trying to talk to him and he came back with the pumpkin theif anwser.

    It was a huge misunderstand and I am profoundly sorry.

    99% of the Legends population are what I call "Weekend Warriors. There were many players that were upset because they wanted their Jack O' Lantern.

    I did not smear him in global chat, me and three other players were talking. One of them said it. No matter I will take the blame for it if it makes everyone feel better.

    I did say it on here, and I'm sorry for that too. I have deleted the original post.

    Again it was a huge misunderstand and I am incredibly sorry.

    Re: Griefer ruins Halloween Fun on Legends shard

    What you could do is have someone setup a house with mail boxes, people could drop all the pumpkins they find in those. Then have 10-20 people who are honest and well known on the shard put the pumpkins in locked down containers, people browse, if they see their pumpkin call in general chat and someone with access to the house can give them it.

    Thats all I can suggest, And atleast that is something you can do right now, Rather than wait for Dev help.

    Um, by leaving them on the ground for anyone to pick up you're inviting somebody to do it.

    What Mapper said, please take his 2 cents and assist your community.

    The devs shouldn't 'help you'. Not that I encourage people to toss these in the trash, but they were willingly laid out in a public place. So yes... this kind of thing happens.

    Is everything you post a rant? Sheesh.

    Just because one CAN do something doesn't mean they should! Just because I could give OHP the big finger for giving me a ticket ....doesn't mean I should.

    Just because you left the keys in the ignition doesn't mean John Q. Public should steal your car.

    Just because some pea-brain politician says vote for me, doesn't mean I should!

    I could go on and on but I won't; you get the idea.

    Or someone trustworthy can hold them and post and update a list of the names on the Legends forum here on Stratics so people can look at an organized list.

  16. Re: Griefer ruins Halloween Fun on Legends shard

    From my time dealing with the general public,one thing I have learned is that if someone can do something and get away with it,they will. It's human nature,and some are just born self-centered idiots. Unfortunatly one of these idiots crossed your path. The solution? Do as the other posters have said and create secured crates in a vendor house to keep this idiot from being well.... an idiot.

    Actually the guy was just moving them to right outside umbra where he was making a pumpkin maze for people. He never tossed one in the trash can ever. He abandoned the maze after you started smearing him over global Jirel

    Wait, is that the same global chat that Jirel has made thread after thread about hating in the past because people are so utterly nasty on it?

    Shocking. rolleyes:

    Re: Griefer ruins Halloween Fun on Legends shard

    Excuse me, but if you think that is actually sad.. Or even close to being a really crappy attitude.. LOL! Some people will be driven away by their fellow players' behaviour, true.. Those that cannot get the whole MMO/Net thingie clear in their head.. >.> And I'm not trolling or anything.

    Too bad you couldn't enjoy your time I suppose, most other people seem to have done so despite facing similar situations.

    Re: Griefer ruins Halloween Fun on Legends shard

    You make a great point for the difference between being LAWFUL and being MORAL. They are completely separate.

    Ok, you blew all your cred right there. See that's an unlawful act. It is against the law to steal someone's car regardless of the keys being in the ignition or not.

    To do something which violates the TOS would be similar to breaking the law. The legal action would be a GM's determination.

    Tossing pumpkins is more of a MORAL issue. It's not a nice thing to do, but it harms no one, and definitely not against the rules.

    I agree, the guy was being a jerk, but don't try to say he's breaking some kind of rule by doing this. Some people play jerks in UO and some jerks play UO. This guy is probably a combination of both.

    Jimmy-

    I wasn't saying he was breaking the rules or any such thing. I was just give examples. That one came to mind because I had recently seen the TruTV show Bait Car.

    The show is the cops put out a car that is rigged with cameras and a remote kill switch that is run by a cop with a laptop computer near by. Anyway I was thinking of some of the "Dumb" perps that try steal the bait car.
    These are the ones that when asked "Why did you steal it" they anwser "Because the keys were in it."

    Honestly I wasn't think about Lawful or unlawful. You read more into it than was there.

    If you think I'm totally uncrediable then that's okay. Most people think I'm uncredible because I'm a blonde! LOL

    Re: Griefer ruins Halloween Fun on Legends shard

    FYI: Mr. KnowItAll I was using global as part of the Jack O' Lantern exchange I generally as a rule avoid it.

    Don't you think you could put you energies to a better use than trolling a internet MMO Forum. I mean I would think that a intelligent, and articulate guy as yourself would rather do something constructive to help people.

    Then again what do I know I'm just some dumb, blonde that plays a silly MMO Game. ;)

    Ishamel- I didn't smear him in global but I will shoulder the blame for it.

    The bottomline is: It was a misunderstanding and it has been settled.

    If it makes ya feel better to perceive me as a bad person, then that's okay.

    People make mistakes, afterall we are only human! Well...most of us. If anything I would like to point out Jirel's ability to take accountability...it shows character. Thanks Jirel for stepping up, and sorry to see things go to poop.

    Ishamel approves this message. Oh he also wants to know if you farmed him any silver yet, I guess 50k for a lavaliere was what was offered? He seems to need silver.

    the chessy community has been awesome for this event. jol's are lined up by the stable and there hasn't been much in the way of shennanigans. many people are calling out names in g chat as well.

    i even saw reds/blues workng the fields in brit fwiw.

    Re: Griefer ruins Halloween Fun on Legends shard

    Well first off there is no comma needed between 'dumb' and 'blonde'. And secondly, did I ever even state I was a guy? I don't recall so.

    If you read my post history, I'm far from trolling the boards. I'm calling you out based on your post history: you rant, cyber scream and constantly carry on in the majority of your posts. You threaten to quit the game publicly when you dislike someone or something. Many of my posts are quite positive and encouraging to the game and its players as a whole. My responses to you are often the opposite, but then again... look at your posting history. It pretty much speaks for itself.

    As far as 'doing something constructive'... well, I suspect you don't know me on that either. And that is quite OK with me. I do not use my character's name on these boards, as I prefer my UO my UO and my Stratics my Stratics, but rest assured anyone who does know who I play will agree I'm probably one of the most proactive 'community' players on my shard... which, thankfully, isn't on Legends with you.

    Re: Griefer ruins Halloween Fun on Legends shard

    to the guy who was making the pumpkin maze: i didn't have a hand in the name-calling--but i did stand by and say nothing--for which i apologize. your heart was in the right place, but we just are so used to seeing the bad in people that sometimes we forget that there are still good people out there too.

    i love how legends has been banding together, collecting and distributing pumpkins, and calling out names over chat, just to ensure that everyone gets their jack-o-lanterns. sometimes when the real world looks its worst, it's just refreshing to come online and know that people are largely pretty decent.
