    In the last 24 hours, I've had sort of an epiphany. I couldn't sleep so here I am at 3 in the morning posting what came to mind.

    To all who may not know, I am only 17 years old. I recently came out of the immature stage and just started looking back at what all I've posted and the havoc I've created. After looking at old PM's and threads/posts, I feel an apology needs to be stated.

    You know, it's kind of shocking to see that I posted some of the things I did and with no remorse until now. I mean, it's not bad things that I would consider to be graphic or repulsive, just the immaturity level I had. Being in Toad Town for the most part of 3 years, I made a few friends that basically called it when they see it. Queen Arya always says in vent that I take things to heart way to much, in which I guess I do.

    I'm here to say, in the last years I've been playing this game and posting on stratics, that I'm sorry if I've said anything, done anything, to offend you in any way. I know of a few people that need to see this, I won't say who but I do hope they see it.

    For closing of this post, I want to thank those who have helped myself, Toad Town, and the Rares community in any way. I know this thread is out of the blue and has no correlation to rares but I felt I needed to post this. Again, If I have offended you in any way in the past 3 years I've been on stratics, I apologize for it.

    Wow, I am shocked. In all the dealings I have had with you I have never witnessed you do anything that needs apologizing for. I am not shocked that you may have slipped here and there and made a mistake or two (hey we all do that), but am shocked that you are only 17 years old. You have always appeared to have the maturity of someone significantly older than that. Way to step up, take ownership of what you feel are mistakes and set about taking steps to correct them.... once again showing maturity beyond your years.

    Well said and I applaud your willingness to say it out loud.

    May I also say... that it is very hard to do, but try to reach out to those individual people privately and offer an apology. They may not accept it, but that would be a further step toward maturity. I know in the age of facebook, folks have become accustomed to making blanket statements (myself included at times) instead of approaching people personally. Try approaching them privately and like a mature adult will give it the best shot possible. You are growing up into a responsible, thoughtful man. Keep going.

    It's about time. I'm not usually a big grudge holder but you've been really mean to me and hurt my feelings!

    Message boards, social media, and even our beloved UO tend to make it easy to be rude and not realize it. However, what you have done here speaks wonders to your character and state of mind. Keep in mind this is coming from someone old enough to be your mother, but if I were, I would be emmensly proud of you.
