    I have done the nominee/endorsement three times my self. I did once before server up, and twice after server up.


    Sadly it's the weekend and we will probably go another 3 months without Governors lol

    Once you have been nominated and endorsed, your name should show up as a candidate instead of a nominee.

    Exactly.
    And because of that the stone also rejects to "Withdraw" your nomination from the stone - because you are no candidate anymore.

    This issue should correct itself when it's no longer the 1st of June on your server's local time. Thanks for reporting this, we'll get it fixed for the next election cycle. This should have no bearing on the rest of the election.

    What a surprise! . Something that has been ages in starting isn't working as it should. Perhaps we should have waited 2 years.

    I think it just keep restarting the election over and over as long its the 1st of June and cleaning the list with that.

    Its only a small problem that will fix itself. But its always "heartwarming" to see the "kindness" of people like you that find it a"smart" idea to nitpick on anything. :p

    Look this isn't a big deal, we're just missing a flag that says "You've already cleared the election data today, no need to do it again!" so instead the code is just going "June first, time to start a new election!" every single time it runs. It's probably a five minute fix, but not worth anyone rushing into the office on Saturday, since the bug will end as soon as we hit June second anyway.

    I could be wrong about this, the post that was up in Dec (to lazy to look for it) state they will turn off decay for a few weeks over the holidays. It was for people to get out and enjoy the holidays or vacations. I think it was turned back on though.

    I don't think it has. I've logged onto characters after a week or more, yet get the "aligned" notice.

    I find player killing dumb too but if people enjoy it , i let them enjoy it and don't give dumb remarks on it.
    Things in UO are realy simple , if you don't like it, don't do them but let others enjoy what they want... its called freedom.

    It's an excuse for the shard's EM to play pattycake with the usual suckups. They'll sit around and have little meetings and roleplay, and desperately try to convince themselves that the other 90 people in the room screaming "GIEV ITEM PLXZ" give a crap.

    Those who find this dumb are free to ignore it -- if you find it dumb and still show up to grief, obstruct, and delay, it says something bad about you.

    Roleplaying is a funny sort of thing. It's a niche market and something that way more people do than commonly is realized or considered, both at the same time.

    This is an MMORPG. You know, massively multiplayer online ROLEPLAYING game. Its more like you guys screaming "GIEV ITEM PLXZ" are confused and think that you are people to be given a crap about.
