Fishing Event Deadline

Discussion in 'UO Drachenfels' started by Drachenfels EM Feed, Jul 3, 2013.

  1. There were some comments about the running fishing event,
    concerning the entry of record fish, I will discuss this topic briefly here.
    Some fishermen have the opinion that there should be a maximum deadline for freshly-caught record fishes.
    That means that a fish must be returned within a certain period of time to be included in the event.
    This would prevent that a fisher hold the fish till the end of the event to break several records at once.
    I suggested to run a vote about this, but after I thought about it I came to the conclusion that this is not practicable.
    Several reasons have led me to decide against a deadline.
    A: I cannot check exactly when a fish were stored in the mailbox
    B: I cannot guarantee that I have time every day to look in to the mailbox
    C: There can be reasons why you do not have the opportunity to submit your catch
    These are the reasons why I don’t want a deadline.
    It would be nice if everyone would submit his fish close to the catch date to ensure a dynamic event.
    Finally, the currently top three fishermen on Drachenfels.
    1st place: Paul Bocusse with 14 records
    2nd place: Allanon with 12 records
    3rd place: Tony Fisher with 5 records

    Kind regards
