    Do any of you remember sifting from a live/story arc event last year? I'd love to see that brought back as a permanent addition to UO. It truly made the desert interesting and fun! I was thinking that since the code was already written that it could be recycled and modified. I would change the items from the story specifics to gems, crystal shards or glass shards(think fulgurite) and possibly nuggets of gold or silver. Silver I know doesn't currently exist in game as an ore. Mining skill would better you chances of getting something. This would be an awesome way to introduce a silver ore, or as I prefer Mithril. I know we have to be careful using Mithril, wouldn't want to step on any Tolkien related toes. Also extend this to all the deserts not just Illishnear desert. What do ya'll think? Would you support such an idea? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

    You know I thought it WAS a permanent part till I found out other wise.... I was sad to see it go as I didn't get in too much of my time doing it...
    But I would like them to think about it for perhaps a alternate way for people to get sand and the occasional artie out of the deal sift anywhere there is sand... 3 to 5 sand bits for the work ... sounds perfect as some players do not own a miner... the trays would be a vendor buy or perhaps something a tink could make.. its worth pitching to the Dev in my humble opinion

    The code is still active. I bought 125+ sifters a day prior to it being removed. :D
