    I wanted to take a moment to thank Sakkarah for providing the following information in a different thread:
    This information is greatly appreciated in light of Calvin Crowner's post to keep watch for announcements which he made on 9/22.

    I would like to take this one step further, and encourage continued communication in this manner, and would like to suggest that something similar to In Development be used again. While I understand Mythic's hesitation to provide exact dates, having a list to refer to that will keep us apprised as to what's coming soon in the game is a great thing to have. Many of the other MMOs out there do this, including WoW, which indicates to me that many of them believe communication outweighs the potential that another company might steal an idea or that a player might be disappointed if something is removed or tabled for some time, but simply keeping constant, updated communication does wonders for keeping the subscriber-base happy.

    In short, thanks for the great communication there, and please, keep it up and let it lead to further open communication on forthcoming projects.

    I appreciated the update too, although it's essentially a "yes, you read Cal's announcement correctly and yes, we hit a bump in the road"

    The problem with an "under development" list for UO is that I sense UO has a higher-than-normal proportion of items that are attempted but never see the light of day (at some stage of development they are ultimately found to create more problems than they solve). I could be wrong, but I suspect people would be more upset about things on the list that eventually get yanked than they would be about not knowing they were there in the first place.

    Petra posed a really good question on the other thread so I will just quote that:

    There are always rules of who can and cannot say what. I'm sure there is a lot more going on but no one can say anything on the matters. Perhaps the additional information that they cannot mention yet is intended as a nice surprise? D
     
  5. 61 words with no period. I think you should get a prize the the longest run on sentence in history.
    I Like the points you made never the less. More word from the team would be nice.
