    Board Rules and FAQ - Read before posting

    The Chesapeake Forum is a place for general discussion about Ultima Online, Chesapeake, and shard activites. Although Off-Topic (OT) posts do show up now and then, try to keep them to a minimum, and confine the discussion to one thread. If an OT discussion gets out of hand, a moderator may lock or delete the thread.


    Do not post bugs or exploits: Posting a "how-to" for any bug or exploit, regardless of how harmless the bug may seem, will result in an insta perma-ban. Also listing bugs and exploits is forbidden.


    No Spamming: Posting simply to increase your title or annoy people (just two of the many examples) may result in immediate and permanent banning of your account.

    NOTE: If you have something of interest spanning many forums (contest, etc.), contact the new reporters and let THEM spam it for you. See the news post section below for details.

    Keep personal attacks to a minimum: Besides loosing the respect of the regulars here who feel you should be able to argue with someone's point of view rather than call people names, it often just sends people off-topic and really has no place here.

    No pornography: This goes without saying. Posting pornography or links to it will result in an instant perma-ban.

    Player run shards: Player run shards violate the OSI TOS and may not be advertized or linked to on any stratics forum.

    Signature Sizes:please adhere to the following restriction for images that are not directly related to the topic of the thread under discussion:

    Maximum size of image file(s): 35k
    Maximum height of image(s): 125 pixels
    Maximum width of image(s): 600 pixels

    It should be noted that links in a message and Private Messages are regulated by the same rules as the post itself.

    Poster Titles

    The following is a list of titles given to posters on Stratics forums, and when you get them:

    0 Visitor
    31 Adventurer
    100 Journeyman
    300 Seasoned Veteran
    500 Sage
    750 Lore Keeper
    1000 Lore Master
    1250 Slightly Crazed
    1500 Certifiable
    2000 Babbling Loonie
    3000 Crazed Zealot
    4000 Grand Inquisitor
    5000 Grand Poobah
    7500 Stratics Legend
    10000 Special*

    From time to time, you will see odd titles such as "smitten kitten" or "inane poster". These titles are given to people who have made a large contribution to either stratics or the other posters here. Don't ask for one. If you
    should get one, you will be contacted! /php-bin/shared/images/icons/smile.gif

    Posting News

    So you want to Run your own event and need it posted under the Chesapeake news section?
    Well before you send us the information heres a checklist so you dont forget
    1) Name of Event
    2) Location of Event (including facet)
    3) Time of Event, Timezone and Date
    4) Type of Event and Who it is for
    5) What the Event is About
    6) How do I find the location where the event Is
    7) An address to a relevant webpage
    8) If a picture is included please either attach in jpg format or point to a site on the web where the picture is located
    9) An Icq number or Email address where you can be contacted for further information.

    Now you have all your information, there is one thing people tend to do is post it without spell checking.

    To whom do I send this information?
    Send it to us at [email protected]
    and we will post it as soon as we recieve it!


    We are currently trying to get rid of the pure chatting on the boards, therefore, we've setup an IRC channel,
    #Ultima-Online, on Stratics IRC server, if you wish to join this channel, please read the Stratics IRC instructions.

    <font color=red>Addendum:</font color=red>

    For the most part, the Stratics Rules of Conduct are no brainers and were only written down because of the response of the very small minority of people who apparently didn't know how to behave in public ("But how was I to know you weren't supposed to link to pornography?"). Some of the rules are not so obvious (like the signature size) and were added to make the forums run more efficiently (with 80,000+ users you need all the edge you can get) and the <font color=blue>nice effects</font color=blue> /php-bin/shared/images/icons/smile.gif can be found in the FAQ which, like the RoC, has a link at the top of every page.
