    Well what can I say I hate it when your email gets a message from UO forwarding you a list off accounts associated with your email address. Then your email adress password suddenly doesn't work.

    Now thank God I was abble to pull over on I5 and update all of the accounts, well I think.

    I have had some deals go very bad on Atlantic the last month. I would call it theft but did not imagine and outright attack.

    As a result I will be ending all Vendor Contracts at all of my houses across all of the shards. Please clear you inventories immediately. I have know way of knowing if I was able to secure all of the accounts and sites. All of the house will be reverted to Private as well.

    Sorry for the drastic action. I find is sad that people think it is great to hack an account these days.

    Well i had a house break in lol Went out treasure hunting, come back and about 15 of my chest out of 25 or so are empty. I only have 8 or 9 people friend's to the house and i t is a private home. Years ago i must have had some chest set that friends can access them. Now 4/5 years later i start playing again and never bothered to check the security on the chest. I guess you can not trust new friends. My fault for not checking to make sure chest are set to owner only. I lost everything. I figured it is 1 of 2 people. They are kind of stupid, if they would have not took everything in the 2 hours time frame, i would have never noticed and could have stole a little at a time for years.

    So double check the security on your chest is the point i want to make.

    How is your account security the responsability of a vendor owner at one of your homes?

    Wow Nabin so sorry to hear about this, but relieved that you were able to counter it in time. I wasn't so fortunate several months back and was cleaned out of all my gold and tokens on one of my accounts (to the tune of approx 175mil.. I had just sold most of my rubble collection and some rares). Luckily, I was able to change all of my passwords before the other accounts were hit and super lucky that the person was only interested in my gold and tokens. With the help of friends and alot of spawning, I was able to bounce back. Just don't let this sour your outlook; you're a pleasure to do business with and a true value to the community.

    Heaven forgive me, But I hope they GOT your Sonoma acct. Maybe then the REST of the shard doesn't have to see 50 packies all over Luna using communication crystals spouting (I mean SPAMMING) religion. I'm a god fearing woman, but damned if it should be forced on my screen like that. =/

    Yes, I was pondering the same question as well. Curious.[/QUOTE]Maybe I read it wrong but I interpreted it to mean he was ending the vendor contracts because he could not guarantee the security of his houses for the vendors. Maybe I'm wrong. *shrugs*

    Maybe it's an atheist wanting to destroy the church you want to build on Sonoma...?

    I am sorry Sir.

    Are you the same person who came to LS and built the tv show homes?

    Never saw one vendor at any of them, so nobody there got ya huh. :)
  13. ahh I was wondering about that. Had packers all over Luna and he was in the church [Luna house with the cross on roof]. Was giving my journal a fit that day, specially when I use it when talking to people in game. Was so bad that we went to Haven to just talk in game.

    Forgive me, but I think I need to comment on this... :)
    Firstly, if you are a God fearing Christian woman, how can God's Word be forced on you? Would you not thank Him that it is being witnessed to others that need it?
    And secondly, forgive my bluntness, but if you bothered to read the books that are provided in front of each and every pack broadcaster that is broadcasting His Word, you would know how to ignore them so that you would not have that problem with your journal in the first place, Drakelord. :)

    Just some words for thought, and I hope you have a very blessed day!

    God I hope that works...

    Lord Nabin - I have never experienced your "Evangelizing" so I cannot comment. I do, however, hope you get the matter of your account hacking worked out and in your favor. :)

    Have a great weekend!

    Sorry to hear about your account. I hope you are able to secure all of your UO stuffs. :(

    To those giving him a hard time...

    I would much rather hear about Peace, Love, and Caring for others than some of the rude and disrespectful talk that is sadly commonplace in-game. Many are having tough times right now emotionally and financially, positive messages are always welcome over negativity!

    Now I've not personally experienced this in-game, so perhaps subject matter on Hope, Strength, and other general topics would be appreciated - Fire & Brimstone tends to attract more negative reactions than teachings about treating your neighbor as yourself, being honest, forgiviness, etc. There are ways to speak about your beliefs and convictions without being overbearing - even something those of other Faiths can respect and appreciate. :)
