    You mean "Who was Ginsu"?
    Rest in peace Ginsu

    It sounds like someone making the a char with the name of Gisnu to **** of someone.

    Some on this shard have no class

    Are you suggesting that the name "Ginsu" should be retired from any player's on Siege use?

    Sorry, I know there were many on the shard who liked or knew him. But there were plenty of us who never interacted with him. To some of us, he was just another player on the shard. Sure it's sad he died, but at the same time, I mourned his loss as much as I do to other strangers in the world...not so much...la

    I doubt this char was made of someone who did not know about Ginsu, however if it happen to be a new Siege player, I would be ok with it.

    Personally, I don't care either way. It's not like they are fooling anyone to believe that they are the old Ginsu...la

    Well...there is no need to assume any sinister intent just from the existence of the character. I have no idea who is using the char or for what purpose, but I do know that when I was building the memorial, I wanted a character statue of Ginsu and Aeric Horn to place in it. Although some of us had limited contact with Cliff's son, it was not practical to gain access to the actual accounts/characters to make the statues. A couple of players volunteered to make characters that resembled his originals as best we could determine from memory and old screenies. After we built the statues, and dedicated the memorial, I assumed the accounts were retired as that was their only purpose.

    Sure that could be the char, if that's the case, I'm sorry.

    About 8 months ago, I used a name change on a character of mine in order to create the statue of Ginsu used in the memorial. I thought at the time I should keep that character name just in case it is needed again and I was simply not using the charater.

    Not thinking of the implications, I ran him for Faction Sigal points last week.

    I have since realized I should change the name back and I did so Monday or Tuesday. Unfortunately, he still shows on the Ultima Online characters page.

    I apologize for the grief this caused. It was a mistake of judgement and I hope you guys forgive me.
