    There should be a daily post from UO to let us know how things are going.

    Was hoping for an update before the day was out.

    Maybe news on the spring cleanup event to offset all the bad news... ;p

    No such luck...

    One would think they would be giving us updates so we dont loose track.

    I did get a clairification.... If your account was ON when the migration was started your accounts are being held till the migration is done, so they are safe from any decay....
    But if your accounts were OFF your home will decay as that timer is still running. I have seen many houses in decay mode that were not so a few days ago.... and that timer is advancing.

    For those who cycle your accounts time on/off. Check your homes if your close to your limit...
     
  5. Actually, a few hours ago a new UOHerald update was posted. It said something about there being a maintenance on the Account Center and it being unavailable starting tomorrow morning (I forget what time,) and it went for several hours. It said your ability to log in game would not be affected. For whatever reason, the post was only up for a few minutes, then it disappeared.

    Just checked UOHerald and saw nothing about this. Could you please copy it to here so we may see also.

    They announced a maintenance for the account management system for tomorrow - then took the message back down. That tells me they have either delayed it to fix a problem with the fix, or they are adding something else in with the fix to avoid having it down twice.

    We should hear more when they are ready for it.

    I guess it is easier to remove it completely rather than cross things out repeatedly :gee:

    Just for reference.
    Since it's been taken down, it likely has no bearing on anything, but since you asked nicely ;)

    I'd take it, if it meant they'd fixed the stoopid acct management problems. Had REALLY gotten my hopes up when I saw that message about maintenance this morning... but then it went *POOF* as if it never existed, and.... well...

    I still have yet to do anything on the site... still waiting for bugs to get worked out .... and I'm still against linking accounts at all.

    I don't want my accounts linked to one email... Way to ruin my security EA. My accounts all have and maintain separate emails with separate everything... AND I LIKE IT THAT WAY!

    I have no intention of linking accounts. I want some assurance from EA that I can access my accounts and keep them SECURE.... with this new system... even if my "main" email gets hacked. Many accounts are not hacked through EA's website... it gets hacked from your own EMAIL...

    One big reason why I NEVER EVER use my account emails for anything but my accounts.

    I have no desire at all to do anything with the website..... but I suppose I'll have to when my CC expires.

    I want assurances not a bunch of lame excuses and hearsay.... I will NEED more than 9 slots too....

    Bunch of BS .....

    Call me when you get your S**T together EA.
