    Done with them? THP why not just come and have fun with us and stop being so damn angry all the time. I have noticed a lot of your posts are angry and frustrated. Take a break. Take some deep breaths. Maybe do a shot or make yourself a tequila. it's all good man. The EMs have their uoem.net pages they can post on to give you a heads up about the events. Also, facebook doesn't take anything but a bookmark in your favorites folder. If your EM isn't doing those things maybe just ask him/her for a minute of their time and request/suggest it. I know that I personally appreciate getting notice of when the events re going to be, it helps me set up dinner, or juggle other real life things that I enjoy. It's ok to have a healthy relationship with your EM. Dont just post "i am done with them" and "sad days" it doesn't have to be! The EMs were put into these poistions because of their ability to comuncate well with players it is our opportunity to be a part of the program in ways that we appreciate being able to find out when and where events take place in an easy to find way. I personally suggest using their uoem page (i have them all bookmarked and in a folder labled "em stuff" on my desktop. Then I have a post-it note type program that has the list of events for the week. I'm not a hard core event goer. This is my playstyle though and I do enjoy it if I am aware of when and where the events start so I don't miss anything. If EM Emile is posting regular, up to date information, who cares where it's located as long as you can bookmark it and post it again.
    Goodnight THP

    I have a Facebook... but..

    WHEN the EMS started using it.more i created ANOTHER.

    Yes that's right my main char now has his own. Lol. So i can like and or friend UO pages thus getting information on my alter egos FB page.

    Even if you don't have or use FB its free and you can make a THP profile.. And add people like me and flutter and EMS and UO etc.

    Get an app for FB on ur phone or log in on ur computer. Don't be anti new like so many. We as a community sometimes have to adapt. Adapt and overcome.

    Do i still miss events... Hell yeah but thats my own issue of not asking or taking the time to take a few mins and check out the information.. The information that we all have access too.

    Game is old but it doesn't mean it should use old methods of advertising. I think FB page is a good choice (and i say it as someone who hate FB and won't use it).

    While its logical, and ill probably do the same, technically this is against facebooks terms of service and the account risks deletion.

    Yes ... but. If you look up my real name... Then my alter ego name on Google. My alter ego had way more hits .. Going way back. So who is real.. Me or Azmodan... Plus Azmodan has his own name .com... Maybe Azmodan Beguile is really me... Maybe Facebook should get rid of my real name for lack of backup.... When my gamer name is more prevalent. ;)

    Hell even some people i know in real life call me by my online name other then my real at what point do you leave ur real name behind? Heheh
