Like all the staff here I am a volunteer here and having once played UO with a passion I still have a great affection for the game.
Thats why I volunteer my time to try help current players of the game.
One of my 'roles' [ along with the rest of 'the team' ] is therefore to help get as much news and information to these forums as possible to help keep players as up to date as we can.
The more information we can pass onto you,the better the game experience should be..
With recent changes to 'ownership' etc of the game,as it stands now,Stratics is the first stop for the posting of all EM news and events.
It is known that many of our posters here do not use Stratics for various reasons.
(Neither of the last 2 points are criticisms in anyway ,just fact.)
However sometimes we are unable to carry information over because it is not 'ours' to give,ie :- Player written reports on events other have compiled and posted.
We have tried to recruit Reporters to commit to regular posts/reports but have not been very successful.
Thats not saying we dont have some committed players who post excellent stuff of UO happenings with great screen shots.
We are all very grateful for their efforts,and no one knows more than me what a very time consuming job it is to play in game, take screenies and then edit it all into a report.
EM posts are different as they fall into the category of promoting a public event every player of the game is entitled to attend.
As the EM's do not visit our forums,players could miss out on these events.
Therefore we bring those posts to these forums in a bid to enhance players experience of the game.
These posts are usually copied and pasted with a link back to the original source.
Again these are not our posts to plaguerise and often contain important times and dates,so need to be reposted here without errors.
I hope this clarifies a few points for people and thankyou for reading.
Please message myself /any of the Admin team should you wish to become a Reporter.
If you dont have the free time to report but have something you would like to submit from an event you have attended please send to me via a PM and I will be happy to compile it for you.
It can then be posted accrediting you for your efforts
