    I think you forgot something?>
    How about: Where is you?
    ...la

    (disclaimer: just a joke. I am not, nor have I ever assumed the name of said rico-la ;), just playing the fool, I is...)
     
  5. Is English your first language?

    ja / nein ?
    meh, perhaps ;)

    Why, do you feel the need to critique my compositions?
     
  7. Sprechen sie Deutsch? Ich kann Deutsch, aber, icn kann Deutsch nicht so gut.

    I did not mean to demean your composition, I was merely confused by your wording, and was hoping to gain a better understanding of your background.

    I apologize if I offended.

    tlhIngan Hol Dajatlh'a'? (okay, I don't...but I thought it would be funny to ask)

    No, sorry I haven't picked up the klingon lingo yet. You have not offended me & I have only been playing around in this particular thread, because I thought it was a fun one to poke in to & be goofy vit (haha ~ ...la :)).
     
  9. A thread that is fun to poke into? About Rico?

    Surely you jest? :D

    you know the Christmas song "deck the halls" it's the chorus "Fa la la la la, la la la la"

    Galaad's gimmic. He took it from Hong Kong players from Sonoma, who seemed to punctuate all their phrases by "la". Galaad imitated them as a mockery. And as Rico is a Galaad wannabe, he followed.

    As I stated in another thread (dedicated soley to the meaning of ...la actually), I believe it stands for love always. Rico's little way of telling us how much he cares.

    I have no idea why Rico uses la but ending your sentences with a la is an extremely common practice amongst people from some South-East Asian nations.

    ROFL. Once again, I must pop in to explain that is is completely incorrect. I used "...la" before the intertubes were a twinkle in Algore's eye, let alone UO, Sonoma or the players formally known as Galad (Good, Neutral or Evil).

    And no, I won't explain what it means (at least not now). There are only 4 people who have ever known what it means, and one of the died last year, so that has dwindled the list down to 3.

    Neener neener...and Rico has been hiding out in the OT forum. If any of you would like to join the discussion over there (and are over the age of 17) please feel to join us...even if it's only to be able to swear at me for me stealing something from you in-game...la

    He has to be at least 150 stealth to lurk around silently with a frame like that.

    So of course Morgana can't find him, she doesn't have enough detect hidden.

    I just want to point out that this entire thread belongs in the OT forum... I find it interesting mods have posted on here without realizing this.

    Well I'm just pointing out that if it isn't put there that mods are not following the rules. I mean... if this thread isn't put in the correct forum, is it fair the next time someone posts and cries foul because this one was allowed to be let go and stay in U Hall?

    You could have just as much fun on the OT forums, it doesn't remove the validity of the post, it just keeps it where it is supposed to be... which is off topic.

    Again, you can't keep this in U Hall, disregard the Stratics rules and then argue with a poster the next time they find their topic pushed to the OT (or Rants, or whatever) forum.

    When you walk a mile in my shoes... We can talk. If you have issues with any moderating, use the email address. You can find it in the FAQ.

    It's OK. I already reported you. I just find it a shame that the moderators are not doing their jobs is all and making exceptions to SOME people. It then becomes unfair for others when they are faced with a similar situation.

    You were appointed a moderator to enforce these kinds of things, that is all I am saying. This was an OT forum type post; it needs to be moved there. To not follow the rules makes an exception to certain posters.

    Abuse of mod powers?
    Mods not doing their jobs?
    Favouritism towards certain posters?
    Hypocracy?

    Welcome to the stratics UO forums...

    Heaven forbid that the mods should be allowed to be human. Since you're so insistent, I'll move it.

    off topic is things that are not UO related. Rico is UO related because that is who he is when it comes to us knowing who he is in UO. Now if it was posted where is *real name* then its off topic.

    did you notice ... as soon as the thread was moved the damn bird that was following kelmo also shut up?

    I wonder how long that attitude they displayed would last in OT? the REAL OT? canary - mods and admins here are human ... UHall has too few mildly fun threads as it is and you INSISTED that one be removed.

    you should be removed. and yeah, I'm just a bit peeved at all the posters who think the volunteer staff here shouldn't do this or that.
