I gather that was NOT the "real" Speedman?
Evidently.... can't even find his member account on the memberlist.
Great, now they're duping Former Dev Team members! :/
I was hoping someone else would chime in on "Speedman".
Today is all about speculation.
don't say speculation out loud, the price of gas will go up as a result.
Speculation and speculum... *cough*
EA should take note of this. We are absolutely desperate for any type if official info on the current situations, someone can post on these boards, saying they are whoever, and we will accept what is said without question.
I don't want to speculate what you are using your speculum for if you are talking about it here.
BTW speculum shows as misspelled on my spell check.
you won't get anything till monday.
There were only really a few people who believed him.
A rule of thumb I usually go by is that if there's nothing to support their claim, then their claim is unsupported.
Unsupported claims should always be questioned. Not to be a pain in the arse to the person making the claim, but because misinformation is worse than no information.
In the case of Devs, they usually get a little reddish (v) shield.
Actually, I think it was the real Speedman. He did stop by to say howdy on my blog and on Tomas' as well. But seeing how we're on new forums and all that jazz, it is indeed wise of the Mods to get confirmation from Jeremy. An imposter would suck, but so would stoning the real guy by mistake
Thank you Regine for helping us to try and clear this up. I HOPE it is the real Speedman!
hope we didnt scare him to bad then.. spirits run kinda high these last few days , I've had the need to vent myself , but I hope your folks are working pretty darn hard atm , I'll just sit back for now and check my e-mail every 10m or so for an EA mail .....
- Aye, I was shy to stone the real guy but felt it worthwhile to make note that I questioned the situation (of which I only did in public). Now, if Speedman is back with EA, specifically with UO, that would sound great; but I figure he would have a different username if he wanted to say hi while he was still working with Sony. The user's first, second, and third posts all set off alarms for me; third especially.
Still skeptical yet still curious.
You typed to many words, let me fix that for you:
"you won't get anything"
I spoke to Speedman.
It wasn't him.
This is why you shouldn't put your title in your name. Another lame-brain EA move which makes people think anyone with EA in their name is now an official representative. Why does Stratics even have the special VIP title? Just get rid of it because EA's policy is obviously superior.
I only saw the first couple posts, but "Speedman" wasn't even making any sense. You are exploiting by viewing the client files? What a joke.
I did indeed stop by a few blogs this weekend, but I haven't made any posts on Stratics in a LONG time. I've been imposted and I don't even know what they said!
<-- this is the Real Me (tm).
Edit: Seems that I've lost my signature and badge in the change to the stratics forums.
They said that they'd always buy a beer for any UO player they ever meet. I gotta be honest, that really puts "fake speedman" ahead of you in my book.
*waves to the real you*
I'll see if we can get you set back up with that. It was great to meet you at the San Diego Townhall
Hiya real you
VIPs from EA Mythic are:
They are all duly identified with shields and titles under their names.
Former devs, the true ones, normally get a little recognition with a special title under their names too.
So, if you see a "visitor" with a name resembling current or former dev asking you to PM exploit descriptions to him/her... don't.
In general, we won't ask for PMs for exploit info. I may ask for people to email info to me directly, but if it isn't me and they don't ask you to send it to an EA email address, I'd hold off.
- Good to see ya' clearing things up for us
I doubt your imposter did any harm as he wasn't around for too long.
But I did notice he visited my username details yesterday before he was.. detained. He might have had a few people pm him UO exploits because that was the last he asked for ('no banned account info. / just bugs-exploits-dupes') in all of his 3 posts (first post was to send in bug reports to uo.com, heh). Just didn't sound very legit to me. Hope I didn't breach any protocols by sharing the foul.
- Not sure if this is a bug ejdalb, but: I went to your FoF and then the link to the Bug Rewards FoF... your email address on there starts with an e and not a j. Just thought I'd toss that out while I'm thinking about it.
What about Fertbert?
Fertbert is no longer with UO - hasn't been for many years.
edalberg will actually work, too - I had a heck of a time explaining my whole name situation to IT. Sigh.
I remember you answered that at the Atlanta Townhall as well....
One of your most asked questions?
