When the second house on Siege was announced I loved it, still do. Each spring I close the bulk of my accounts and demolish the houses on those accounts. I keep my main accounts active and their houses up and log in atleast once per week even if briefly to make sure all is well. This time when I returned from the summer and started actively playing again I have noticed many of the places i would plop a house down for the winter are occupied. I have also noticed that they are pretty much unoccupied. Don't get me wrong I am not complaining about not being able to place a house in better locations. 99% of the time I preffer my houses to be in the middle of nowhere and on the small size. I would be willing to bet however that these second houses were placed by prodo shard players and most sit there forgotten about and empty. What I wonder is if something could be put in place with the second house deal that the account that owns the house has to log on to the shards that their houses are on like every 90 days or the house goes into decay. IE Every 90 days I would have to log the accounts with houses onto atl and legends if they have a house on Siege and folks that primarily play other shards have to log onto Siege every 90 days to refresh their Siege house timer. It would only apply to accounts with a second house. It just seems like a lot of wasted real estate in locations that would be attractive to someone interested in primarily playing on Siege. It would be nothing more than a minor inconvienence for someone to log onto the shard every 90 days and I suspect we would see many empty houses and dirt plots drop after the first 90 days. Just make it so everytime the account log on a shard that it owns a house on the housing timer resets. I have all of my winter houses placed for my UO playing season (No not nearly as many accounts are being reactivated this year) and other than my 2 Tokuno Houses and 3 Island houses will all be demolished again in the spring making room for anyone who would like to occupy those plots. I just wish it were people placing who actually log on instead of chatting on ATL say "Oh yeah I have a house on Siege and have not logged on there since I placed it." Seems there is not a lot of difference between the old RTB houses and the second house (Ghost House) option.
