    Ok .. I don't get this: Isn't this Illegal? Why is this being allowed?

    A friend asked me to come to GL and see a LUNA Vendor which is selling in-game items/gold and runes advertising his ICQ and paypal. I took a few screen shots and compiled them all into the one Picture using Adobe Photo shop.

    Answer a question with a question? Good technique to distract.

    I am hidden because my beauty would distract from the object of my Screen shot.
    I am not shopping. I am taking a screen shot.
    Back on topic please. Thank you.:popcorn:

    Try reporting them? Not exactly as blatant as dropping books and runes on the ground so obviously they aren't catching that much attention. At least for people who always page on those people...

    This is so tiring.... Yes, it is against the rules.... No, they're not going to stop it... EA/Mythic cares about one thing when it comes to UO and that is wringing out every single dime that it can, from as many subscribers as it has, for as long as they can... So save your breath and get on with whatever is left of this game that you still enjoy...

    Of course the friend has reported this but hoped something here, in UHall, might get some action, you think?

    (you are so right startle.)

    Report it to a GM if it bothers you so much, but you are not achieving anything by doing so. Tomorrow they will still be selling Gold, Dupes etc and probably from the same vendor, or if that one gets shut down they will just open a new vendor. If you are so offended by their actions I suggest you stop looking on their vendors cause you're not going to stop it

    If all the cared about was getting $$ they would turn around and sell gold for .25 cents a mil..the fact is, they chose the lesser of two evils. This specific person may have 20 accounts all scripting resources/gold/items whatever, if it is banned they lose ~3000 annually. So if you think about it in a business sense it doesn't make much sense to ban this person and lose that amount of revenue to make the few it bothers happy, that's the sad reality. I just wish EA would open an item shop and sell the same things these guys sell. Instead of some of the community supporting a few 3rd party's they are supporting the game we play. Solely subscription based games are a dying breed, we are just along for the ride.

    I'm even for the dev team coming up with expansions and new content and putting up a business plan/ideas and goals and put it up on kick starter and see if this "vocal" community can put its money where it's mouth is, it is 2013 not 1997 it's time we deal with the fact the game doesn't have as much pizazz it once did, and if we continue to play it and want 24/7 support and want them to actually care than we need to actually support it...you're asking for Skyrim type gameplay/support in a game developed and imagined in the PacMan era..

    Really? Because we beat the book droppers. Just report this guy. They are on the ropes now, thrashing about for a new sales model. One wonders about the motives of those who think we can't do what we just did. In case you haven't noticed, the book droppers are gone. And poor Plague is walking around with a (young) tag on his character.
    The last time I paged on this guy the GM reply was enthusiastic, say that they REALLY take these reports seriously. They are losing and with a little work we can break these guys completely. Some people don't want this done because THEY BUY THEIR STUFF.

    Ignore the nay-sayers. Let's take back our game.

    Not on My shard (Napa). Not one in more than a week. Maybe your shard doesn't care? I also have found none on LS or Atlantic.

    Just made a tour of a dozen shards. Not one book anywhere. Where are you seeing them? Tell me and I'll come and clean up your shard too.

    So what book guy did you beat? I still see the books on all the shards I play on and runes everywhere. These people are far from being on the ropes, a good businessman will always look for new ways to raise revenue. You may not like these people but they are doing a better job of promoting their business than EA are at promoting UO

    Post the shards where you see books and I'll come and fix it for you. I have not seen a book on any shard in over a week and I'm betting you haven't either.

    Serious technical question: Can you page on a vendor?

    The help page system seems, shall we say, rather imperfect.

    Someone did. I went to GL to check out the original post and the vendor was gone. No books there either.

    And yes DJAd, it has been going on for years. Now it's over.

    Hi Dermott. My wife gave you a little workshop many years ago when you first started on LS. We fight this fight because these guys screw up the economy with their duped gold. This is how it's supposed to be: we self police with a little help from the GMs. And I have talked to a few GMs who are hot to help, but can't do a thing until we page. Page on book-droppers. Page on dupers. Page on frickin Plague. Page on the guys who buy this crap.

    In a sandbox game you get the environment you deserve. Ask yourself what you deserve.

    Well Galen, I was wrong about the vendor on GL. I had the wrong site. He was still there a few moments ago. I paged on him using the "other" entry where I explained the problem. Got an answer from the GM in under thirty seconds. I'll check to see if he's gone this evening when I get home.

    Would certainly get more people to start paging in the least, yes. Just all I could really say in reply. Only so much one can do with players advertising. As long as they aren't spamming like crazy, I personally don't care about them anymore...

    The reason there is no books at Napa is I gather them and toss out! AS we all should if we see them in our shopping. Look the only way they get the message is if we all work to shut them down. What ever shard I am on those books are grabbed up and tossed in trash...

    Except we can't do that here. What we have are vendors advertising through labeled runes in their inventory, not dropping books or runes on the ground, so all we can do is report them. What we need are GMs who actually follow through with those reports and do something about it.

    RE BOOKS: See this post. http://stratics.com/community/threads/book-litter-ads-spam-gone.297878/



    Lightfoot Wrote: " Ignor the nay-sayers. Let's take back our game" I love that you posted this Lightfoot.

    The Plagues are getting waylaid and trapped by players and the books stop for days on most shards. It certainly has caused a big slow down. I have been gating Plagues and other robots to one tile traps via gates placed in front of them. It is fun. Then the books vanish for a long time.

    [quote="Winker, post: 2268276, member: 835"]Today all around Luna/luna gate and a few other gates around the map. Europa[/quote]

    Yes Winker. See the thread (link above) ' Book-liter-ads-spam-gone?" The books will appear on EVERY SHARD .. on certain days at certain hours but NOT every hour 23 hours a day as was happening on Sonoma. So a few of us and possibly more players bent over backwards to remove the books. So don't be discouraged.
    .

    Atlanta's Luna City is LITTERED with SHOP RUNES and VENDORS. IT's hillarious. I think there are four Plagues that seem to be standing in one spot forever trying to record vendors items and prices. There are so many vendors and so many shop runes stacked everywhere, LUNA LOOKS LIKE IT WAS ATTACKED BY A MACHINE GUN THAT SPEWS OUT RUNES. I think I could get rich selling runes to NPC Mages.

    Real life calling. Must go. I do hope these two Threads encourage those players who would rid their shards of those books and vendors, to join the FORCE.

    Thank you.

    It was a serious technical question about if one physically could page on a vendor and, if so, how. You've explained that you can, and how, so thank you.

    At first I didn't understand this question then I realized that not all shards you can get killed or stolen from when shopping like on siege.

    why would i distract, i was just curious as to why you where hidden while shopping.
    just seemed strange.
    its a tram rule set, there are no killer spawning critters in luna town.
    it just seemed strange to hide if you where not doing something you were afraid to be seen doing.
    unless you were afraid to be seen doing it...... (hmm so maybe i was on topic and not being distracting after all o_O)

    In all fairness, I am always hidden when I'm moving around, even in tram. Just something I am use to after spending a lot of my time in fel and being a PvP thief (one who steals from players, not fights).

    No points but I will keep our shards clean of this exploitation of our players...
    If you need something ask others... trade can make you gold rather then spending cash on these parasite places. If we work hard enough the bots go bye bye.
    Viper09 sugar you can call a GM or even send Mesanna a pm about it. I am quite sure if its illegal she would move to kill it.

    Never let it be said that they have full run of uo........ It only takes a tiny bit from players to curb the theft from our game.. and dont think its not theft.. For every dollar a unsuspecting player spends at these sites, its not going to better the game only lining someones pocket on the outside.

    UO gold is almost like a currency in theoretical way if you look in my lense of the past 13 years of playing UO. Back when I Started you could sell UO gold for like 50-60 dollars per million. I actually sold some of my excess stuff back in high school for a significant profit but the fact that people actually still spend their hard earned money on this game is incredible. The Cheating was terrible for this game for so many years and they DID NOTHING ABOUT IT. Any bannings that represent anything more than 10% of player base may END UO pretty much instantly. I dont us the program, and i just play the game but know that if people are still trying to sell virtual currency despite all the risks, it really is a good sign for a strong game.

    Of course we can call the GM or PM Mesanna, but the point in this thread was that doing so doesn't usually yield any results...

    Couple vendors like this I found on Atl. YES the GMs will remove them, just takes alil time. Physical harrassment then type in the vendors name. In the description give a brief detail what shard, town, and physical location of the vendor. It WILL be removed, atleast the ones Ive reported on Atl in the past all have.

    As for the books.... the green bags we get from T-hunting.... I always thought those bags were for picking up books so its easier to throw them ALL in the trash at ONCE. Takes me abt 120secs to make a full run of all moongates then another 30-45secs to do a loop around Luna. THANKS UO for all the green bags.... I put them to good use :)

    This sounds like fun.

    From now on when I am really bored I plan on making up some fake gold sales books to drop all over the shard.

    Shoud be a good time watching all the junior police rangers get all excited scooping them up :)

    An excellent example of one important, and under-rated, reason why this game is so small. There's really only so much that most of us can do to counter such a mentality.

    I know Goldberg didnt mean it that he would delibertly do such a thing and jeopardize his account...
    Even spoofing the books can be mistaken as doing it for real and if any correct player turned him in for dropping the books .............well he should know better.

    Galen he is just in a mean spirited mood of late... let it go sugar.
    We all know the outside money makers have dragged the game down... I would go so far as to state they meaning the companys hustling the game items to others in game have made the enviroment in UO harder for alot of younger and returning players. How can you compete with the glut of gold? Castles going for over a billion gold... suits and event items costing more then the whole gold that was in the game for the first 3 years of play....
    I cant condone their spoiling of the game. Im sorry. Players who trade/sell between players gold and items is one thing, the bit is they are in the game paying and playing and not just a parasite working the game to make a living. There is a difference.
    I knew when that first guy told EA way back in the beginning that he was goingto continue to make real money off their stupidity.. EA well...................... we all know that outcome.

    HAHA .. Newbie players can do escorts in Haven and pick up books and sell them to the NPC Provisioners in any distant town and make the Gold Spammers chase around to buy books from Provisioners at 20 per NPC. lol

    NO WONDER I COULDN'T FIND any BOOKS or PLAQUES!!

    On the other hand the population was largest back when real money transactions were encouraged and they were even a draw to many people. Paragons of the UO community to this day have "selling gold" and a price on their ICQ notes.

    On a side note as far as I can tell the Plauges people were talking about are the script bots for the search site. I've never seen one drop a book for the gold site. I think they use a newbie ninja and stealth eventually, where Plague is a newbie Necromancer. So seems pointless and petty to interfere with the search one since they still preform a service for the community until the powers that be actually get around to doing a vendor search.

    Obviously players are buying from these people or they wouldn't be so successful.

    Meawhile .. the Vendor in Genesis Archives REMOVED HIS RUNES ADVERTISING HIS ICQ NAME AND NUMBER. WOW! Big achievement!

    If I tried what they do, I would have been banned from the game a long time ago for infractions of the Rules of Conduct. haha

    I referred to the post I was replying to, and the attitude it represented.

    My only stance on the vendor searches is that I'm looking forward to the official one, and think that the unofficial ones will still survive the transition.

    And my only stance on real money transitions is that (I think??) they are against the rules. (Or am I misinterpreting things again? I know that once they explicitly were allowed, but then I thought for some reason they explicitly were disallowed?)

    A friend has that information but doesn't post so I will ask her about it. It is written somewhere in the Rules of Conduct.
    I know advertising outside websites that sell in-game items is not allowed.

    We need a search engine in the game. That's for sure. Or we need to get rid of LUNA CITY where the prices are so high and fixed .. I can't believe anyone who seriously plays UO can afford to buy anything they need. I can't even find spell scrolls above 5th level like MARK AND GATE for sale on Atlantic or GL - at least ones I can afford with my small pitance as a new player so my spell book isn't full yet. * will have to make my own scribe or I know there are decent players on all shards who would help me but I don't like asking. I prefer to find a way to do things myself to enjoy the feeling of accomplishment * :loser:

    Ok real life takes over now. (*waves* - enjoy everyone - have a good day/night/morning/...)

    The barrels and crates in Despise are a good place to check for spell scrolls. You'll need about 50-60ish lockpicking to pick the locks. Unlock spell might work too, but I've never tried it. Also, there are a lot of low-level monsters that drop spell scrolls. You can find other options by going to the Advanced Search page for the Hunter's Guide on Stratics and putting the word "scroll" in the Loot field for your search parameter.
