New EM? Hello?

Discussion in 'UO Great Lakes' started by canary, Jan 3, 2009.

    Has _anyone_ seen the new EM yet in the counselors hall (or where they SHOULD be in the counselors hall)? I have dropped in probanly 30-40 times the past few days. I generally see other players waiting around asking the same thing.

    I thought they were supposed to be doing meet and greets??

    The whole EM thing was a farce. All names listed are fictitious and meant to make us believe that UO isnt closing it's doors at the end of February.

    So why don't they hand out sashes? They was on other shards, durning the meet and greet. But Latu said no sashes.

    That I'm not sure of... and you are right, I did read on other shards they were being handed out to players. So I'm perplexed why GL's EMs arent allowed to.

    That said, I don't think we as players should expect something every time we see an EM. Is it nice? Sure. But I don't think 'getting something pretty' should be a deal breaker for the EMs. Personally I'm just glad they are around again. :p

    All EM's have been instructed as of now to stop handing out anything. Also EM's are not players on the shards they moderate. That would be a conflict of interest.

    I Wonder why?
  12. BloodstoneGL

    BloodstoneGL Guest

    You wonder why what?
  13. Ghost71

    Ghost71 Guest

    Why they can't hand out sashes.
  14. BloodstoneGL

    BloodstoneGL Guest

    Because people started crying about "he got one so I should get one" all over UHall. And it creates a rare that most would just try to sell for personal gain. IMO save the special items for events, why would anyone want to have a sash with some EM's name on it?

    Hmm, how did you learn of this?
  16. BloodstoneGL

    BloodstoneGL Guest

    I talked to the EM about it.

    Ghost71 Guest

    One told me "no comment" when i asked about it. But yeah i like the sashes, my one char always wears a sash so as many different ones i can get the better.

    OK, I'm not trying to be catty here, but what's the point of them? I've never seen them on GL, and I've been there so many times, at various times of the day, every day of the week, because I wasn't sure when they'd show up. One person posted one was at the Bank the other day, but unfortunately, I missed that. But, that's the last time I've heard about them.

    The only "conversation" I've seen is in their log in the book at the Councelor's Guild that states: "We will attempt to monitor the UO Stratics forums for any comments." And to sign their guestbook so they could know who had been visiting. Otherwise, MIA. I don't expect them to show up every time someone stops by, but I did really believe I would have met someone by now.

    Very disappointing.

    As to the sashes or other items the EMs could have passed out, they could have just account-tied them rather than jerk them from us. That would have ensured that those of us who would have loved to have had something so personal would have treasured them, and screened out the ones who were just there to make a buck.

    Still, the main problem for me is a terrible lack of interaction from what I've seen, and while I could not have hoped for the days of Counselors, I was hoping for more.

    Pretty disappointed. :(

    Must be some bad timing. I've ran into EM Mal 3 times just running by the counselor's guild. I belive they plan to put out lanterns when events are on.


    They are around. Prolly just busy getting thier fiction set to start some events.

    Well, to be fair to the EMs, they're kinda grounded to the counselor's hall from what I hear. And aren't allowed to talk about much yet. I'm guessing it may be a bit slow going before something big happens.

    I have seen them, they do exist, but I'm unsure of thier regular times at the CH.

    Well, I'm willing to meet them halfway. I'll just keep trying to catch them for now. Thanks, guys!

    They were on earlier and might be on again the next 30min- hour. Good luck. :)

    Yeah i guess their allowed outta the house now. Seen Mal at MOA Wednesday. I suggested he sell the MC but they didn't have one that night.

    I've been adamant about posting that I had not seen them, it only seemed fair to say that I now have!

    I spoke with EM Malachi the other day, and he was very nice.
