As it was mentioned this morning in the chat section, they can't even be bothered to update UO.com. I don't think they could handle a living breathing creature like a forum.

I agree if there were official forums it would be for UO members only. But I wouldnt want anyone from EA doing it as they wouldnt do it right. It would have to be done by Adam- or if Adam doesnt want to do it, someone who knows how how to look after their forum family.

They did have their own message boards for a long time, and were very active. It turned out to be an issue because it did cost them money to have people managing the forums, and it also took time away from the developers as they tried to answer questions instead of getting work done. I'm suprised I'm the first one to mention this, but it was a while back, probably over 5 years ago they shut them down and told everyone to go to Stratics. Their old posting guidelines are still there though =) http://www.uo.com/guidelines.html for nostalgia.

I still miss the good old MyUO Boards. They should never have shut them down. They had that famous SilverOne for a mod! (even if we did have to put with Cynthe!)

Tuka :cool:

Its EA.. The only way they would have an Official UO Forum is if they sold it to us as an expansion. :laugh:

Yes.. of course there would be a monthly fee to go with it. But the fee insures that the billing process is Fully Functional (FF - Perhaps this can be used on a FoF: Five on Friday) and that there is no delay or problem in billing your credit card.

Regardless if the site is secure or not, I assume.

Probably have to pay extra to get access to a working secure site.
Then after a year, they'd bring out a "Super secure" site, which would require an upgrade code, purchasable for some stupidly high price at uogamecodes.com, which incendently, requires blood and tears to get it to accept your username/password.

But they will also offer an "Advanced Payment Site" to make all payments easier to be made, at a low monthly rate of $15 a month (per payment option).

The probably would have never thought about that Maddux, but now that you gave them the idea...

I'm sure they'll also give the options of quick reply, quote, and editing your own posts at the introductory rate of $19.99 with low monthly fee of $5.99 after the initial month.
