    This is not a discussion thread. It's a statement.

    First, let me thank all those lovely people who waited till I was out for the day to thoroughly attack my integrity.
    Second, let me draw your attention to the UOHerald item
    Happy Birthday Stratics and Ultima Online | Mythic Entertainment | Ultima Online
    From which I quote:
    I expected that fansites would read that and contact me, however I did contact:
    uoforums, knuckleheads.dk, Jeuxonline and Ultima Online Bibliothek. I looked at several others, but they were no longer active or didn't have forums from which to draw questions.

    If you feel there are others that I should contact - that are actually still active, please feel free to point them out to me, by email: [email protected] or by pm. Or invite them to contact me.

    As far as I'm aware the only ACTIVE fansite, with forums, that I haven't listed is FCB - who's forums are on Stratics, so I am of the opinon that I already have them covered?

    As regards filtering - I'm sure those sites who have so far had questions included will tell you that I removed none of their submitted questions. What I do though, is search Stratics, especially the 'ask the devs' board, for related questions I can include with them.
    Questions are taken from current boards, old ask the devs questions, those from other sites and even occasionally General Chat. Where possible several near identical questions are condensed together, with the names of all who asked them included. (example Malagaste & Risso, house coowners A&A2)

    Which questions don't get asked?
    Those that are not questions at all, but elaborate suggestions for new game systems requiring significant development time. We're puttiing those together for the devs to peruse and consider at their leisure. - We're not deleting them!!!
    Also not asked are those along the lines of 'what do you bunch use for brains?' I think most rational people would agree those are not suitable for inclusion.

    We are not actively asking for questions on Stratics because we don't need to. There are enough questions asked on a daily basis, plus the ones in the ask the devs forum already. I'm sure the players could drown us in 100 questions per week. But I think 10 is a more reasonable number to expect the developers to actually find time to answer.

    Finally, you are at liberty to disbelieve anything I say, however anyone who has known me for a number of years knows that I do not tell deliberate lies. My memory isn't good enough. Truth is far easier to remember.

    To those who are convinced that everyone tells lies, is corrupt and taking 'bribes' etc I can merely say 'Don't judge me by your standards, mine are higher'.
