    I clicked on Request to join group on Facebook but got nothing to fill in with the information you requested. I only made an account there a week ago so this is all very new to me. Where do I provide my volunteer name and group?

    My apologies I thought it gave a spot for that. You can just let me know and I will get you added.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, LadyTiggs, but apparently my request was granted without it so I just posted in the discussion. Thanks for setting this up, this is a great idea! I remember we had a reunion in IRC the year after the program was closed down, but that's the last time I remember having much contact with the rest of the crew. I really miss those guys (and gals!).

    It shows that you're tired. Read the last line of her first post, just above the signature bar.

    I did play WoW and who might you be? :)
     
  15. I'm an old UO player who recently returned. I remember you from the WoW forums. You know.. that old cesspool. :)

    I applied to be a Counselor way back in the day because of a few friends of mine who were Counselors who kept telling me how much fun it was. Nothing happened with my app because it was right around the same time they killed the program. I was disappointed, to say the least. It didn't stop me from helping new folks, anyway.

    Now I'm back with a new account, and starting from scratch. So many changes in this game... I'm still not up to speed yet. I think it'll take a while.

    Awee I am sorry you never had a chance to be a counselor. Are you still in touch with your friend who are counselors? Have you pointed them to this post? =)

    I've been thinking of starting up my accounts again and giving it a try. I am sure there is a lot of new things but it would be fun!

    Here is one of my old, I mean old emails from you Tigger..

    Hello,
    You are receiving this email because you have applied to become a volunteer for Ultima Online Companion program. Our records are currently showing you as enrolled in our Automated Web Based Training program and you have not taken any Courses. At this time we have taken down the companion applications on the website, if you do not take the Automated Training courses you will have to wait until the applications are put on the website again and reapply.

    If you are still interested in being a part of the Volunteer program please begin your Auto Training and have it completed by May 14, 2000. If you need the information to be resent to you on the training courses please email [email protected]

    *********************************
    If you wish to be removed from this list and from the Volunteer program training status please reply to this email with your full name, account name and program you wish to be removed from (in this case companion program)
    *********************************

    If you have received this email in error and have completed all your Courses please email your full name and account name so I can check the database.

    Thank you and Good Luck!

    I tried many times to sign up.. But nothing happened..
    But I am still playing UO after 8yrs.. :thumbup:
     
  18. I was looking through some old CDs the other day to check the backup contents. Lo and behold I found the counselor handbook and all the other volunteer information that I had from my days counseling on Lake Superior. I can not join the group, but I will be with you all in spirit.

    I was a counselor for a short time before the program ended. It was a huge bummer to get in and then not really get to be involved for very long!

    I don't have any of the information anymore due to a hard drive death. I remember that letter though! I should I sent it out a lot.

    Lots of great memories!

    I was Counselor Shayla on LS for about a year when the program ended. It was a sad day when we went from "How can I help you" to seeing a button that you had to click only to read that you had to send in a report that wouldn't be answered.

    I think it would be admirable for EA to start the program again. Are they thinking about doing that?

    By the way does anyone else still have a house that has two sets of doors? I never wanted to get mine fixed!

    I can't speak for EA and I am not speaking on behalf of any other gaming company starting up a volunteer program.

    I can say that there are many of us that wish to get back in touch with old friends :)

    I signed up on the LinkedIn site...for some reason it said I wasn't eligible to create a Facebook account....

    I was in the companion program on Chesapeake for about the last 6 months of it's existence....though I don't have access to or play that account anymore.

    Is this the same SLC Tigger that used to talk about all the house break in exploits she used to steal entire contents of player houses when she was the second in command on Great Lakes? As in back in late 98 and early 99.

    I guess it is a sign of where UO is heading with you getting another paying job from UO.

    I searched my old files after reading your post and found mine too! Always found the advice against using your cousellor as an indian scout amusing :)

    I am not keen in using facebook, so I regret that I won't be joining the group either, but good to know there are other smurfs still around! Have fun!
