    I would ask Santa for hats! I think we need some new, fun hats in game!

    A top hat would be cool!

    A crown design or two would be neat.

    Bunny ears! ...I guess that would be best around Easter.

    Those pointy party hats that people wore for birthday parties and new years. Do they still wear them? I guess I should get out more. =)

    What other kinds of hats could there be?

    How about giant church lady hats? They could have high physical resists.

    *thinking*

    Santa hat, Robin Hood hat...

    How about something worthwhile, like transfer tokens or name changes, etc?

    Coppelia Guest

    No soulstone fragment nor tranfer/name change token would be a present for me.

    For a present, I want skill points over GM not counting in skill point total. That would be a great gift.

    Hmmm...

    NO MORE CANDY CANES!!

    The snow statues were nice and I still use them in my deco work, nutcrackers were cute but this too has been done players want new items.

    No globes plz - they take up so much room, I got the 3 sets as it is & 10x over extras

    Hats??? you got to be kidding no thank you

    Reigndeer & sleds- no thank you kindly same as the globes -way too many

    Snowmen and that snowflake - no same as the globes too

    Christmas Tree deeds.... way over done and the average new player can pick them up in luna for pennies, but ok toss one in if you feel you must - Il find some use for it btw thank you for letting us keep them up as normal trees.

    Our first christmas I got the good girl /bad boy bags they were so cute with note from santa. But many would pitch a tantrum if I asked for them again.

    Clothing/shoes... no way too much AoS of that floating on vendors as it is. With no stats they tend to be tossed over for the stuff from events and new bosses.

    You gave roses a few times which was nice but that is more a valentine thing I feel.

    No more cards!!!

    Soulstone fragments was a nice gift, and many would like them to return. But they tend to make a mess all over once used and you can only deco with a few before they become an anoyance.

    OK I got it~~~~

    The perfect gift!
    No box needed. A gift tag with the following list to choose from:

    Soulstone - new colors pink, purple, tan etc
    Name change tolken
    Gender Change tolken
    Transfer tolken
    House teleport Tiles

    Just kidding (I know its a pipe dream)

    What ever they give us - remember 1 thing... its a gift they dont have to do it, but do cause they want to. Its the giving season of love and happyness remember that.

    Perhaps go back to the beginning and give something to each character that fits them...

    Not the good /Bad bag of old, but how about a professions bag.
    Tamer gets a stable addon, Archer gets a refillable bow repair kit(refills of repair deeds),This could also be done for the Swordsman with a kit for armor and weapon repair. No need to go to town would work anywhere. etcetra etcetra etcetra for all. Not too time consuming just a nice idea.
    I am sure that would be the perfect gift if the Dev had the time to do so.

    Yeah, but ... that's not going to happen, so wouldn't you like a really cool top hat? You would look so nice in it!

    Oooh, a top hat with faster casting or some other magery bonus. :p

    If no gifts meant more bug fixes, that is choice number one.

    Choice number two would be a "clothing alteration deed" it would let you turn a piece of clothing into another piece of a similar kind. Example - Elven robes into Human style, or a Hat of the Magi, into a bandana. You get the idea.

    I'd like to see some of the original artwork items we don't have access to as new deco items. Seeing as the artwork already exists, It shouldn't take more than 5 minutes to make some new items.

    Some kind of filter for the general chat would be nice so I wouldn't have to listen to "Pvp Trash Talk" (Although some of it is pretty dang funny!)

    bug fixes would be awesome!

    I would like a Deceit snowglobe since it was left off when they did the snowglobe set with the dungeons in it.

    An end to all cheating, hacking, duping, scripting etc, etc in UO....Okay I know that is soooo wishful thinking, but I can dream can't I?

    Okay I know this will make alot of people scream, yell, nash their teeth, call for my head on a chopping block...but how about a token that give you a choice of 1 item out of a list of previous event items from your shard..that'd be kinda cool!

    Chanukah themed items like a Menorah, Drediel, chocolate gelt candy or little yarmulkes for our chars would be neat! (no I'm not Jewish. It just sounded neat!)

    Arrrrr... you beat me to it , matey :) If the Devs really want to get fancy, have it utter a few phrases ala Personal Attendant: "Welcome aboard, landlubber!" ..."All hands on deck!" ... "Swab the deck you scalawags!" ... "Standby to repel boarders!"... "What do you do with a drunken sailor..." etc.

    Soul Stone frags are cool.

    or

    A carpenter recipe to craft "Bamboo Stick" basically a 2 second one handed sword weapon that has the base damage of a heavy crossbow. Primary special: Nerve Strike, Secondary special: Disarm. :D You know since we all hate bokutos being overly used. This will refresh it a little bit.

    How about a +5 to any skill token like we got back around LBR or AoS? I loved being able to boost slow skills that last five points.

    I'd saved the one my Thunter got for years until he finally hit 95 Lockpicking, then *Boom* he became GM. :)

    interesting idea - a kind of super SoT that recognises your skills like a soulstone and allows you to apply it to whichever of your existing skills you select?

    How about Canon in D?

    Only thing I can think of to add, at the moment, is a new White Cloth Dye Tub (we were promised this, after all)

    One thing to expect is a white cloth dye tube. (It was said that one is coming to prevent normal players from expensively buying leather-white dyed cloth. This would be the first 'next' possible date for such a gift.)

    If they give out deeds for x-mas trees ... what about trees of different sizes? That you can place them onto tables or similar furnitures. Maybe an advent wraith with candles to light? Music gears for the music box with seasonal songs?

    I would love to see deco items be made to put in place of those that we build using illusion. IE a very nice large couch similar to what we build using chests, pillows, and benches. Or a TV, pool table, corner bathtubs.

    I just feel that when you look at deco items you can tell which items have been half %$*ed and those that had real time and effort put into them. The new gargoyle style couch is horrible and only faces 2 positions so I wasn't able to use 3 of them with 2 end tables to make a living room setup. I just believe that these things can be done better.

    Giving out cards, flowers, candy, snowmen, and things of that nature shows no actual thought and no actual effort put into the idea. Better to give nothing if it is only going to be half &^%ed.

    Just my opinion. I know others will disagree and that is fine :)

    How about a soul stone frag charger - to recharge the stone you already have? Make a gold sink out of it or something. Kind of like the hitching post.

    Dear UO Santa!

    I've been a good boy this year. I bought every update and item the Dev-Gods offered us. I I helped newbies and convinced others to return to UO. I participated in the events and sacrificed gold at the shrines.

    For Christmas, I would like to have something small, like some bug fixes for the EC or maybe UO on steam, windows live and/or EA Link.

    With seasons greetings,
    Merion

    I want soulstone fragments that are not account bound. I would love to be able to swap skills to my other accounts chars.

    Or a 2nd house per account on a 2nd shard, even if it has to be a small 600 lockdown tent.

    The ability in chat instead of ignore they just say the "OoOOo oOOOoo Ooooo" speak option. That way I know what idiot someone I didn't ingore is talking to. Sometimes after years players growth up and have something worth while to add to the game. I lifted a bann from my vendor house for someone 6 years later that acted up when I ran auctions.

    And a gift bag that makes a long list of things stack that don't.
