    While he surely did have a point, I have to point out that the post you linked to is nearly 5 years old.

    And that's why I don't often read that site, Posts saying how bad Stratics is.

    I often enjoy reading through the moaning posts here. :D

    Every board for every game I've played always has lots of complaints. People get frustrated and need an outlet to vent. That is what keeps the internet going (all the hot air, that is).

    I used to be a big UOForums fan. However, there was a period of a few months when every other thread was aimed at trashing Stratics. Eventually, I found that reading UOForums just left me feeling brooding and depressed.

    The post mentioned above is a good example of this phenomenon.

    Its pretty common for a forum to think they are better than all other forums, especially game based forums.

    Every forum has their good and bad points, just as it has its good and bad posters.

    To be honest, you're exaggerating just a bit :p

    Most of the negative Stratics threads were posted in guild areas and those forums aren't monitored or moderated by our staff. (Although we have in the past asked for such threads be moved into private areas or toned down a bit)

    We try and keep Anti stratics stuff to a minimum and to be honest, if someone is banned from here, for whatever reason, the first thing most of them do is go to the next UO forum to complain about it.

    If you do a search for Stratics on our forums, there aren't many threads with a negative theme, except the ones when Stratics was hacked/broken into.

    As far as my comments go about UHall and Jackasses, SOME of UHall's resident trollers give it the reputation it has, unfortunatly.

    ...

    Ahh the irony of board vs board drama.

    Meh... I have no particular gripe about any one baord vs another. I'm here simply because I've been here for over 12 years (all the way back to the original UHall on UOSS long before there were moderators, linear view, or post bumping).

    It's had its good threads and its bad threads.

    And yes, I have a certain segment on ignore (for good reason), but that would likely hold true regardless of board I would be posting on.

    My statement "every other thread" constitutes a use of hyperbole. To be more precise, there was a period of a few months when several threads were aimed at Stratics bashing.

    That's true, although from memory, they weren't made by the staff, nor were they in the general UO forum areas. (I could be wrong, but I think they were all, or mostly in a certain catskills guild area)

    Well, that could certainly be true. Though, to be fair, the trolling in UHall isn't by staff either, hehe.

    Honestly, this whole purpose of this thread is as a troll thread and needs locked or put into the OT forum.

    Didn't notice it was posted five years ago. Now I wonder why the OP even brought it up . . . Bizarre.

    Gotta agree with canary again on this one.

    Your attempts to keep anti-Stratics rhetoric off of UO Forums have actually been successful enough that it actually pissed me off once. *chuckles*

    During one of Stratics's worst issues, I floated the notion that they'd been hacked; certain things that they'd said raised that flag for me, based on what'd happened to UOLS.net, and based on the beginning of Stratics's issues with their ad server. (This was the big database crash from many years back, around the time of the Royal Council Massacre/Hope for the Future event.) A Stratics person, I forget who, came into UO Forums, trashed me, and gave me some kind of negative feedback.

    He never logged into UO Forums again, at least not the last time I checked, and the great irony of someone coming onto UO Forums for the sole purpose of marking the reputation of someone who posts there regularly has stuck with me to this day.

    Oh well....It's funny sometimes, what I'll remember.

    *chuckles*

    So yeah...Anyone who thinks UO Forums consists largely, or even in significant part, of Stratics-bashing is incorrect. Anyone who says it is is incorrect or lying or both.

    Honestly, who cares what anyone thinks of anyone else's forum? We're all about the same game, aren't we? The dwindling player community's too small and fragile to fragment over some imaginary line in the imaginary sand.
