    [18:06:28] [Mesanna]: thats getting rather long
    [18:06:30] [Mesanna]: lol
    [18:06:32] [Pandora]: *smiles*
    [18:06:35] [Mesanna]: but why
    [18:06:37] [Mesanna]: if I may ask

    [18:06:42] [Pandora]: u may ask of course
    [18:06:43] [Pandora]: why?
    [18:06:46] [Pandora]: cause i am a plant freak
    [18:06:46] [Misk]: any reason why? storage mainly?
    [18:06:52] [Pandora]: i like to keep them around for other players
    [18:06:53] [Pandora]: especially
    [18:06:54] [Pandora]: newbies
    [18:06:58] [Pandora]: they like plants to deco w/
    [18:07:03] [Pandora]: and yes, storage is always a
    [18:07:04] [Pandora]: premium
    [18:07:07] [FusionCut]: they can be like floor tiles, fill large spaces
    [18:07:11] [Pandora]: especially when i save crap for newbies
    [18:07:14] [Pandora]: that you can not craft
    [18:07:27] [Pandora]: it provides a better experience for newbie to have plnats imo
    [18:07:31] [Pandora]: for their deco pleasure
    [18:07:36] [Pandora]: and saves me space
    [18:07:40] [Mesanna]: *nods*

    [18:11:09] [Pandora]: although not paid but returned to test it out and see if they like it
    [18:11:17] [Pandora]: with hopes they buy a subscription and come back to us...
    [18:11:23] [Pandora]: will those players have access to general chat ?
    [18:11:23] [Pandora]: or
    [18:11:31] [Pandora]: condemned to the help chat channel
    [18:11:36] [Mesanna]: Bleak ?
    [18:11:39] [Pandora]: on LS folks are on general chat channel
    [18:11:44] [Mesanna]: will they be under trial accounts
    [18:11:46] [Pandora]: so if they needed help, guidance or 'fun'
    [18:11:50] [Pandora]: they wont be heard
    [18:11:57] [drcossack]: Most shouldn't be, Mesanna
    [18:12:03] [Bleak]: They will be limited to Help Channel
    [18:12:06] [Pandora]: blah

    [18:12:40] [drcossack]: makes sense, I guess. It IS technically a 30 day free trial or however long
    [18:12:44] [Pandora]: folks are on general chat here.
    [18:13:02] [Pandora]: so to make their visit nice - we need to be on help eh ?
    [18:13:24] [Misk]: apparently, that will be your best bet
    [18:13:26] [FusionCut]: aye we will have to switch if we want to help
    [18:13:30] [Pandora]: *grumbles...*
    [18:13:34] [Pandora]: ok

    [18:55:45] [Taeara Mi'aken]: Thanks for the title Mesanna. I never took it off :)
    [18:56:01] [Mesanna]: we need to change it
    [18:56:05] [Mesanna]: and engrave you instead
    [18:56:13] [Mesanna]: but go ahead
    [18:56:20] [Taeara Mi'aken]: I had three things to ask tonight
    [18:56:27] [Taeara Mi'aken]: but I forgot the first one...
    [18:56:34] [Mesanna]: lol ok
    [18:56:36] [Taeara Mi'aken]: so...
    [18:56:53] [Taeara Mi'aken]: second, I'm a big user of the Enhanced client
    [18:57:04] [Misk]: FIXED!
    [18:57:07] [Taeara Mi'aken]: and something's been bugging me since it came out
    [18:57:22] [Gidge]: Thank you!
    [18:57:32] [Taeara Mi'aken]: Would it be possible to review the clothing layering on the EC paperdolls?
    [18:57:39] [Gidge]: you know I gotta go check it out :)
    [18:57:49] [Misk]: there are several bugs on that in the system right now
    [18:57:58] [Mesanna]: Gidge wait
    [18:58:02] [Taeara Mi'aken]: I often feel like some pieces of clothing should be on top of others, instead fof below
    [18:58:05] [Mesanna]: Gidge come back
    [18:58:19] [Bleak]: I will have the pleasure of fixing them :)
    [18:58:25] [Jack Wagon]: *Bites Tounge*

    [18:58:48] [Mesanna]: Gidge let Misk take you, it will be faster
    [18:58:50] [Taeara Mi'aken]: my final request is also probably something in the same vein
    [18:58:55] [Gidge]: okay
    [18:58:56] [Mesanna]: one sec Taeara
    [18:59:03] [Mesanna]: Do you mind if he teleports you?

    [19:00:33] [Taeara Mi'aken]: I still seem to be missing several frames of animation on various animated decor items
    [19:00:41] [Taeara Mi'aken]: (fountains, forges, etc)
    [19:00:46] [Taeara Mi'aken]: in my house
    [19:01:13] [Bleak]: There is a bug in the system on this issue.
    [19:01:14] [Taeara Mi'aken]: and I often find myself viewing the wrong floor of my house when I log in
    [19:01:15] [Mesanna]: we have several bugs already with invisible animated tiles in the EC client
    [19:01:17] [ Lord Volgeir Horkvir The Archer]: You see: Lord Volgeir Horkvir The Archer
    [19:01:25] [Mesanna]: We are aware of it
    [19:01:37] [Bleak]: It is on my list of issues to address
    [19:01:45] [Taeara Mi'aken]: alright, thank you
    [19:01:51] [Mesanna]: Thats Bleak
    [19:01:57] [Taeara Mi'aken]: any idea on the priority of the bug fix for the paperdoll?
    [19:02:12] [Mesanna]: Well on the plus side
    [19:02:18] [Mesanna]: I am looking to get him help
    [19:02:25] [Mesanna]: I am looking ot hire another engineer
    [19:02:29] [Bleak]: Once we wrap up our EC UI update I will take a look at it
    [19:02:30] [Miss Candy Cane]: i want the to add wood salvage to my salvage bag
    [19:02:32] [Mesanna]: so we can get these things fixed
    [19:02:42] [Miss Candy Cane]: tried to tossing all those bows
    [19:02:52] [Taeara Mi'aken]: darn, I'm not a coding engineer
    [19:03:00] [Taeara Mi'aken]: my job is to give them headaches instead
    [19:03:08] [Mesanna]: lol mine too =)
    [19:03:09] [Taeara Mi'aken]: QA technician :p
    [19:03:11] [Mesanna]: just ask him

    [19:06:52] [Mesanna]: ok so
    [19:07:18] [Mesanna]: the fishing is based off regions and I honestly don't think they are set up for those regions
    [19:07:46] [Mesanna]: are you talking the vat areas?
    [19:07:49] [Dreamy]: Ok that was the first place i checked for fishing dungeon fish but i understand
    [19:08:07] [Dreamy]: no the bigger pond
    [19:08:16] [Dreamy]: with the zoggies spawning around
    [19:08:22] [Mesanna]: ok
    [19:08:28] [Mesanna]: its not out of the question to add them
    [19:08:34] [Dreamy]: was just curious is all :)
    [19:08:36] [Mesanna]: but thats why currently you can't
    [19:08:45] [Misk]: send her an e-mail
    [19:08:47] [Dreamy]: yes i couldnt the day i tried
    [19:08:51] [Dreamy]: sueacron ☆☆

    [19:09:00] [Dreamy]: She loves my emails i will have to do that lol
    [19:09:04] [Mesanna]: lol
    [19:09:07] [Dreamy]: One more thing if i may :)
    [19:09:14] [Mesanna]: if we add areas would be nice to add fish with it
    [19:09:17] [Mesanna]: sure

    [19:16:55] [Pandora]: *nods*

    [19:17:12] [Mesanna]: but it is something we do want to do
    [19:17:27] [Mesanna]: the checks will stay in check for in a house
    [19:17:40] [Pandora]: ok gotcha.
    [19:17:40] [Mesanna]: but when its put in a bank it will be "deposited"
    [19:17:53] [Pandora]: *nods*
    [19:18:05] [Pandora]: ok and last question (i wont promise though)

    [19:18:55] [Pandora]: i can not
    [19:18:58] [Pandora]: simulate regularly
    [19:19:04] [Pandora]: i cant pinpoint it
    [19:19:05] [Mesanna]: we can not reproduce it
    [19:19:07] [Pandora]: it must be interrmittant
    [19:19:20] [Aphid]: the trade window crash has happened on and off at odd times for as long as i can remember
    [19:19:26] [Mesanna]: if we can't reproduce it we can't fix it =(
    [19:19:28] [Pandora]: ok then.... not on bug list until i figure out how to make it reproduce...
    [19:19:28] [Aphid]: just make trade
    [19:19:31] [FusionCut]: its doesnt seem to have a pattern, happens a lot on yew abbey roof
    [19:19:34] [Aphid]: client stop responding

    [19:20:01] [Mesanna]: anytime
    [19:20:03] [Aphid]: anywhere
    [19:20:05] [Aphid]: yeah
    [19:20:10] [Hawklin Lore]: Evening Ladies and Lords
    [19:20:13] [Mesanna]: oh fresh blood
    [19:20:16] [Mesanna]: welcome
    [19:20:19] [Mesanna]: hi Hawklin
    [19:20:19] [EM Falcon]: *chuckles*
    [19:20:20] [Misk]: hello
    [19:20:21] [Pandora]: *chuckles about fresh*
    [19:20:24] [drcossack]: lol
    [19:20:27] [Hawklin Lore]: plz forgive my bluntness
    [19:20:36] [Bleak]: Hi
    [19:21:13] [Hawklin Lore]: can we ever expect any real Policing of the Game again,as in Scripter,AFKers and Help from GMs
    [19:21:49] [Mesanna]: *hangs head*
    [19:22:10] [Mesanna]: we are constantly changing our policy to try to catch these guys
    [19:22:27] [Mesanna]: before to be honest with you they would wait x amount of time for them to respond
    [19:22:32] [Korben Dallas]: if they did that then there's only be about 10 players left
    [19:22:48] [Drac Vallarusa]: not true
    [19:22:52] [Hawklin Lore]: More Soilders on the Ground would help alot,IE GMs,maybe ???
    [19:22:52] [Mesanna]: now I have asked that if they don't respond within a much shorter time they are taken out
    [19:23:46] [Hawklin Lore]: Well from all of us on LS ty for your time and efforts
    [19:24:00] [Mesanna]: wait
    [19:24:05] [Mesanna]: I want to say this
    [19:24:31] [Mesanna]: Its really hard for GM's to run around each shard and look for scripters
    [19:25:02] [Mesanna]: they are trying to do better
    [19:25:10] [Mesanna]: and we are changing our policy all the time
    [19:25:21] [Mesanna]: I know you guys are tired of hearing we are working on it
    [19:25:25] [Mesanna]: but we truely are
    [19:25:34] [Mesanna]: and we are going to get better
    [19:25:48] [Gidge]: that's all we can ask. :)
    [19:25:49] [Taeara Mi'aken]: hi again!
    [19:25:52] [Mesanna]: hi
    [19:25:53] [Taeara Mi'aken]: I remembered
    [19:26:09] [Korben Dallas]: we can rebuild it, we have the technology, we can make it faster , stronger...
    [19:26:15] [drcossack]: lol
    [19:26:17] [Jack Wagon]: *Grins*
    [19:26:34] [Taeara Mi'aken]: I believe the classic client has a key that locks the player in place to allow him/her to turn around
    [19:26:41] [Korben Dallas]: *makes bionic sound*
    [19:27:13] [Mesanna]: huh?
    [19:27:16] [Mesanna]: sorry
    [19:27:23] [Mesanna]: I am not following you
    [19:27:36] [Taeara Mi'aken]: maybe they took it out
    [19:27:38] [drcossack]: Basically, your cursor faces a certain direction and you right click
    [19:27:51] [Taeara Mi'aken]: i think it was the CTRL key
    [19:28:10] [Mesanna]: that?
    [19:28:11] [EM Falcon]: I can't do that in enhanced
    [19:28:17] [EM Falcon]: *nods*
    [19:28:19] [Taeara Mi'aken]: keep it pressed while right-clicking your direction and your avatr would turn that way without walking off
    [19:28:26] [Taeara Mi'aken]: yeah
    [19:28:35] [Taeara Mi'aken]: could that function be moved to the enhanced client?
    [19:28:40] [Jack Wagon]: wood make a Damn fine Family Photo right now
    [19:28:41] [Jack Wagon]: *Grins*
    [19:28:44] [Misk]: this sounds like a bleak question
    [19:28:49] [Bleak]: Yes it can
    [19:28:51] [Kalia]: most of us have the same robe
    [19:29:22] [Mesanna]: last question is from Dubja
    [19:29:27] [Taeara Mi'aken]: it made for some rather tedious exercises during my guard training drills :p
    [19:29:28] [Mesanna]: Bleak needs a nap
    [19:29:30] [EM Falcon]: *nods*
    [19:29:33] [Taeara Mi'aken]: thank you
    [19:29:47] [Dreamy]: hi again
    [19:29:54] [Mesanna]: Hi Dreamy
    [19:29:56] [Dreamy]: sorry i forgot to ask this
    [19:30:00] [Mesanna]: lol
    [19:30:06] [Dreamy]: its about honesty virtue and lost items
    [19:30:21] [Korben Dallas]: good one dreamy
    [19:30:22] [Dreamy]: I used to do it all the time on a character but it seems the respawn rate is off or something?
    [19:30:38] [Dreamy]: Can you please increase it so i can work it more
    [19:30:39] [Mesanna]: I will have Misk look into it
    [19:30:44] [Dreamy]: ok great thanks
    [19:30:52] [Misk]: is it just on LS?
    [19:30:58] [Dreamy]: and then one thing and not to complain but without mentioning names...
    [19:31:08] [Korben Dallas]: dont encourage her branny!
    [19:31:21] [Dreamy]: is there a way to keep a young player from re upping a young account
    [19:31:32] [Dreamy]: When I came back 7 years ago
    [19:31:37] [Dreamy]: I met this person that was young
    [19:31:42] [Korben Dallas]: lol Link
    [19:31:44] [Kalia]: link
    [19:31:47] [Drac Vallarusa]: link
    [19:31:54] [Kalia]: my gosh he hides at my house all the time
    [19:31:57] [Dreamy]: and this whole time i notice hes been playing free for years
    [19:32:14] [Dreamy]: and I think the program is nice for a person trying out an account
    [19:32:21] [Mesanna]: how do you know he is playing for free?
    [19:32:24] [Dreamy]: but I think that is taking advantage
    [19:32:31] [Korben Dallas]: we all know the name
    [19:32:40] [Drac Vallarusa]: been young atleast 7 years
    [19:32:48] [drcossack]: but how? Young status expires after 40 hours, doesn't it?
    [19:32:57] [Kalia]: doracron sueacron
    [19:32:57] [Mesanna]: let me know and I will find out
    [19:32:58] [Dreamy]: he just keeps re starting a new young so he never pays lol
    [19:33:00] [Kalia]: he was at my house yesterday
    [19:33:19] [Korben Dallas]: dude is ALWAYS on not matter what time
    [19:33:20] [Dreamy]: like i said i do not mean to complain
    [19:33:27] [Mesanna]: he is making a new trial account?
    [19:33:33] [Mesanna]: over and over?
    [19:33:36] [Pandora]: he has young status
    [19:33:38] [Pandora]: we dont know how
    [19:33:39] [Pandora]: he does it
    [19:33:39] [Dreamy]: over and over for 7 or so years i believe
    [19:33:41] [Gidge]: perpetually
    [19:33:48] [Pandora]: perpetually (young)
    [19:33:50] [drcossack]: it has to be new trial accounts
    [19:34:04] [drcossack]: 40 hours or a certain # of skill points cancels it, if I remember right
    [19:34:11] [Drac Vallarusa]: yeah
    [19:34:13] [Jack Wagon]: it may just be a Guild Tag is what i was thinkin
    [19:34:14] [FusionCut]: thats a lot of skill training
    [19:34:18] [Pandora]: maybe that his guild name
    [19:34:20] [Kalia]: maybe i tis his guild title
    [19:34:25] [Kariny Stormsong]: I thought it might be a guild tag?
    [19:34:27] [drcossack]: no, it's (young)
    [19:34:35] [Mesanna]: hard to believe every 14 days he is going to make a new character
    [19:34:37] [Kariny Stormsong]: Nothing attacks him?
    [19:34:39] [drcossack]: guilds are in []
    [19:34:40] [Dreamy]: he uses the boats
    [19:34:48] [Mesanna]: not anymore
    [19:34:48] [Dreamy]: for his stuff and transfers
    [19:34:50] [Dreamy]: lol
    [19:34:53] [Kalia]: he was at my houses last year for months everytime i logged in
    [19:34:59] [Mesanna]: he can't own a boat anymore with a trial account
    [19:35:03] [Pandora]: i saw him at oaks spawn once

    [19:44:54] [Mesanna]: ok last question
    [19:45:02] [Big John]: come on rip out my still beating heart and put it in my backpack *with my name on it* Lady Mesanna
    [19:45:08] [Lawrence of Paws]: Greetings Dark Lady and Associated Minions.
    [19:45:17] [Pandora]: heh
    [19:45:18] [FusionCut]: *takes a step away from John*
    [19:45:19] [EM Falcon]: *is not a minion*
    [19:45:21] [Mesanna]: greetings
    [19:45:22] [Lawrence of Paws]: My question is one of policy and clarification.
    [19:45:27] [Dreamy]: lol
    [19:45:32] [:heart:1963633>drcossack]: lies, Falcon. You totally are. :p
    [19:45:42] [<16496534>EM Falcon]: i know but shh
    [19:45:43] [Lawrence of Paws]: In the last meeting someone asked about those holding ancient, extra long names.
    [19:45:47] [:heart:1963633>drcossack]: :)
    [19:46:01] [Lawrence of Paws]: Some were given by GMs as favors, others earned through RP and other means.
    [19:46:19] [Lawrence of Paws]: After the Seer program was revoked, many of us lost our names due to being reported
    [19:46:26] [Lawrence of Paws]: To GMs, and the policy changed.
    [19:46:34] [Lawrence of Paws]: I was a UBB shardmaster back then.
    [19:46:42] [Lawrence of Paws]: My name was Theodore Winterwind.
    [19:46:47] [Lawrence of Paws]: Before I was reported to the GM team
    [19:46:51] [Lawrence of Paws]: And my name was changed.
    [19:47:07] [Lawrence of Paws]: I was wondering, due to the change in policy as stated in one of the last meetings.
    [19:47:17] [Lawrence of Paws]: If there was a way for us to regain our names.
    [19:47:27] [Lawrence of Paws]: Or, conversely, for the name cap to be changed univerally.
    [19:47:35] [Lawrence of Paws]: To 22 or 25 characters, instead of 17.
    [19:47:40] [Lawrence of Paws]: To make things univerally fair all around.
    [19:47:41] [Mesanna]: I don't know why they would have changed your names in the first place
    [19:47:46] [Mesanna]: the problem I have is this
    [19:47:54] [Mesanna]: and I hope you understand this
    [19:48:00] [Lawrence of Paws]: After the Seer program, there was a shift in support policy.
    [19:48:06] [Mesanna]: If I could verify you had the name I would fix the error
    [19:48:10] [Mesanna]: but I can't
    [19:48:19] [Mesanna]: no GM would do it now
    [19:48:31] [Mesanna]: what is given stays
    [19:48:33] [Lawrence of Paws]: What about changing the cap?
    [19:48:43] [Lawrence of Paws]: It seems unfair to have people with exstra special names
    [19:48:50] [Lawrence of Paws]: And those with not.
    [19:49:09] [Lawrence of Paws]: I think changing the cap would be a fair compromise.
    [19:49:23] [Mesanna]: can we haggle that number =)
    [19:49:28] [Mesanna]: *grins*
    [19:49:34] [Mesanna]: one sec
    [19:49:43] [drcossack]: uh-oh, she's gonna kill us all.
    [19:49:44] [Dreamy]: maybe a special token that lets you make a longer name
    [19:49:53] [Lawrence of Paws]: 22 to 25 would be great, I think the cap is currently 17 or 18. I think there is a different
    [19:51:06] [Big John]: come on rip out my still beating heart and put it in my backpack *with my name on it* Lady Mesannaextended name change token
    [19:51:08] [Lawrence of Paws]: cap if you use a token, but I am not 100% sure.
    [19:51:10] [Big John]: lol
    [19:51:12] [Mesanna]: Honestly we have to look into it
    [19:51:18] [Big John]: forgot
    [19:51:18] [Lawrence of Paws]: That is all I can ask.
    [19:51:19] [Big John]: i had
    [19:51:19] [Pandora]: having longer names would invalidate some rares
    [19:51:21] [Big John]: that in
    [19:51:22] [Big John]: there
    [19:51:29] [Pandora]: some rares are 'rare' due to their crafter name
    [19:51:30] [Lawrence of Paws]: I was quite the smith back then, and it would mean a lot to me to have my old name back.
    [19:51:30] [Mesanna]: the issue is with it displaying properly in the log in screen
    [19:51:40] [Big John]: extended name change token
    [19:51:40] [ Allusion ]: You see: Allusion
    [19:51:41] [Mesanna]: all I can tell you if its not an issue
    [19:51:44] [Mesanna]: we will change it
    [19:51:55] [Lawrence of Paws]: Thank you great Dark Lady.
    [19:51:56] [Mesanna]: we have no problem with increasing it
    [19:51:59] [Dreamy]: I wish my name was all i had to worry bout :( lol

    @Mesanna So basically we know we can customize the courtyard on Castles BUT (and this is a big one) Keeps do NOT have a courtyard but they do have 3 spaces we can't access and are bascially wasted space for us that we WANT to access. Can you not somehow add some sort of teleporter to keeps so we can go into the "Greens" around our keep and do something with them and allow us to lock things down in there? Mouseholes at one time were letting us into those spaces but then some "genius" on the team decided we shouldn't be allowed to do that for some bizarre reason we can't comprehend. It's not like you can't recall or Sacred Journey or whatever out of them. Once upon a time you could mark a rune into those spaces and recall into them.... you can't even do that anymore. Easiest fix would be to just add 3 doors into them and then allow us to lock things down in there. BEST fix would be to put in a floor expand the front hall to the back add 3 doors take out 2 stairs and extend the two back rooms to fill the entire back.... here is a very rough layout (missing the stairs in the center room) showing that idea more in detail. This would give not only more room to the front hall... but would also free up space in the two upper front towers making them actually more useful since they wouldn't have stairs taking up 60% of the room. Something to think on. Easiest though would just be to put 3 doors in from the center room to the outter rooms and allow lockdowns in there.

    [18:30:21] [Big John]: will it be possiable to place keeps or castles in luna any time soon
    [18:30:31] [Mesanna]: No sir
    [18:30:35] [Big John]: ok
    [18:30:40] [Mesanna]: the region is not set up for them

    There are castles in the region. They were given as contest prizes.

    There was mention of GM response time regarding exploits. If only GM's would respond at all!

    Mesanna did mention that she knew we are tired of hearing that they are working on it. It looks like their publish schedule is once a month even though there was not a publish in June. I wonder why they would not work on smaller updates that are more frequent? There must be some issues behind the scenes that prohibit frequent publishes; probably testing.

    Overall I have to admit the game is still heading in the right direction.

    Maybe on the larger shards Rocko. Europa like many is slowly dying and the Staff seems to not care bout it focusing instead on the larger more populated shards, and letting the others go to seed so to speak. Being an American myself I understand the need to "preserve" the bigger shards which ironically enough are American oriented shards (Atlantic, LS etc) However even tho im not european ive been on Europa my entire UO existance so in a sense its home. :) My evidence towards the previous statement is as follows

    1. First and foremost Deal or no deal STILL hasnt been approved for Europa shard where as its happened on other shards 2 even 3 times.

    2. RP seems to be dead Governors are hamstrung on what they can do aside from Events that take a long time to develop due to only having 1 EM (im Governor of New Magincia on Europa Shard)

    3. GM support is non existant not just slow..absolutely flipping non existent aside from an Email saying theres nothing we can do, contact tech support who will send an email (maybe) saying theres nothing they can do to help you have a great day and thank you for wasting your money on a semi dead shard. (im being sarcastic they dont actually say that but point is made)
    4. Broadsword Staff seems to not care bout regrowing the smaller shards like Europa, enticing people to return or even xfer from other shards for more than just the occasional mega billion gold goodie.

    - End of Rant

    Ok I trust point is made here Mesanna and staff of Broadsword. Myself ive been working in the Retail (supermarket) business for the past year+ and if ive learned anything in 13 months its this. UO like it or not is a business and if you don't provide good customer service (see point 3) then very soon you have no customers which means you have no business which by and by means you have no job....bloody nasty domino effect isnt it? Same thing with not providing and maintaining a good product (see points 1, 2, 3, and 4) This is slowly whats happening to UO starting with shards like Europa, Origin, etc and will slowly and inevitably spread to the larger shards eating away at them too and in the end it becomes too costly to keep the game running. It might take another 15 years but, if this poor business model continues it will inevitably occur.

    Choice is yours guys if you want to keep this game running or not in more than just life support mode. If not well then I wish yall the very best of luck.

    YESSSSSSSSSS!!!! Castle and keep designs are both very wasteful. I hope that if this goes in we will be able to toggle the design (like customizing a house)... many castles and keeps can not be pulled up and replaced, and even those that can would be a huge and somewhat risky pain.

    I agree there are many that can not be replaced if they were to be dropped... But even so I'd still be willing to try to figure out how I'd pick up my castle if there were some hope I could have a nice more user friendly structure that isn't so hard to move around in. But sounds like it will all be asthetic and won't change at all the footprint ...... in that case I'd hope I could just choose a new look and not have to replace the thing.

    You know if they hate them soooo very much and say they take up too much room then I still say give me a basement (something I can teleport to on some black land that I could care less what is next to me.... just give me more storage. As with most folk the reason most want and desire Keeps and Castles is STORAGE SPACE. If I didn't need the storage I wouldn't want the space.

    They are 'improperly placed', or at least mine is.

    That would sure be nice! I had a problem recently where I was unable to page a GM at all... it kept kicking out my request saying something about an invalid name. My husband was able to page for me just fine, but he didn't get a response. :confused:

    It would be neat if the little mini-games like this could happen more often... I don't see why they couldn't have another dev or even an EM do them from time to time. I've never seen one on Chesapeake either, though I think there have been a few in the past.

    My castle is grandfathered/improper. I wouldn't have that choice. I would think that there are enough of grandfathered and impropers still around to make this a consideration, but that's just a guess.

    Basements would be great too! I wouldn't mind paying a fee to add a basement option to my account. As for storage though, making more items stackable, making BOD books only take 1 lockdown, making books to hold powerscrolls (like the transcendence and alacrity books, not the combining books that add as much lockdown use and they reduce), and little things like that would go a long way too. I kinda have a feeling the global loot change is going to result in a major storage problem...

    I suspect castles and keeps only take up too much room on the most heavily populated servers. Everywhere else it probably doesn't matter. Mesanna mentioned liking the idea of more pre-fab houses--maybe they could introduce a high lockdown home somewhere in between a 18x18 and a keep (or even with a slightly smaller than 18x18 footprint). Maybe have one extra floor to make up for the lack of sprawl.

    I think EM Falcon is on to something here!


    Hot air balloons could revolutionize mining! All that mountain ore we couldn't reach before could finally be accessible! If incredibly dangerous, from the looks of it...

    Maybe you would have to launch your hot air balloon from your gypsy wagon... or maybe the gypsy wagon could BE a hot air balloon that you'd have to go through some process to convert when you wanted to take it up.

    I LIKE IT! :D

    I seem to recall that in the initial thought launch, Spirituality was to be gained by doing relevant tasks set forth by a Virtue Shrine, and that upon completion, the individual would gain in the Virtue of that Shrine and Spirituality. Progress of the Virtue was to grant an ability like Spirit Speak (communication with/as a ghost), but with none of the Necromancy boosters, since Necromancy didn't exist at the time.

    If this actually goes in, grandfathered castles will remain as they are. You risk losing all of your houses if you try and change the original placement.

    That I know.... which is sad because there are a whole lot of those still around. Mostly in Fel. I have friends who still have grandfathered places. I lost mine years ago.

    The only other thing mentioned here that makes me extremely happy is that I get to keep my name and stop worrying that someone will page a GM and have it changed. Willa of the Yew-wood has been on GL's and had that name since she and Polynikes got married many years ago. A GM back then gave us both the "of the Yew-wood" last name... but then a few years back we were attending a Knighting Ceremony and Poly got pulled aside by a GM and they changed his name to "Polynikes of Yew" because his name was "too long"... He tried to argue that we did pay for the name change and it was a GM that gave it to us both but they insisted on changing it.... and ever since I've lived in fear that Willa would suffer the same fate since her name is technically 2 letters too long... So thank you VERY VERY MUCH Mesanna for putting my fears to rest. I would be crushed if Willa ever lost her beautiful name. She has always been and will always be an Elf of the Yew-wood.

    Something to consider @Mesanna... if we were ever given an extension for the length of names I can say for sure that I would buy at least 2 more name change tokens to do so because I've always hated that Willa's sister Trilla can't have "of the Yew-wood" at the end of her name either and Malag-aste can't have his last name Hla-ate. As they are short by 2 letters each. If names could be at the least 20 characters I'd be super happy. And I don't know if others would want to buy name change tokens if there was such a change put in or not but my guess is if I would so would others.

    You don't lose houses by customizing them, do you? If they just made it a customization option to select your floor plan rather than having to place a whole new house, it should be fine. I can't imagine owners of even non-grandfathered houses being very happy about having to pick up the house and place it anew... way too labor intensive (for moving contents) and risky.

    As far as I'm aware you can't even change them from original to customizable plot.

    I won't regret anything because I won't take the chance if there is any doubt. I just hope they find a way to let everyone do it safely. That's all I was saying. But, uh... thanks? :confused:

    On a grandfathered account, you can convert a legacy house to a custom house through the house sign without condemning any of your other homes. I have customized houses on Siege and Baja and all of the other grandfathered houses on the account were unaffected.

    Do not resize the house or drop it to place a new plot because that would condemn your other homes.

    I always wondered if you could do that, I've seen some other people with grandfathered houses and some were custom, just wasn't sure if they were xferred to another account before they were customized.
