I have a question about this.

Are you looking to incorporate different sections for each shard? Separate from the forums themselves? I would like to see something like that and if that was done, I might be tempted as well as a few folks in my shard that I know of, to participate. If its just going to be the forums, I would rather pass for now.

This idea certainly have merit. Do you mean a seperate news site per shard? (non-forum) like catskills.uoforums.com ?

Theoretically we could do a "news" site then like LC was saying, each shard could have their own station. Right now we are looking for anyone and everyone to fill various reporting positions that can be hands on and involved, to writing editorials on the comings and goings and basic happenings in uo.

And honestly, we're hesitant to start something "new" that doesn't have people already posting on the forums - but yes, if there's interest something could be done.

Well, maybe it doesn't have to be something completely new. It could be linked from the menu here. But I do see that you guys have the Auction and the Guilds thing and those sites are not used much at all. It does seem that the forums are your strong suit. Honestly, it just might not be a good idea to spin off something new if you have had some difficulties with similar endeavors.

I know my guild leader has an idea for an RP site for Catskills that basically has all its news "in character" that she's working on (similar to Pax Lair Times). It would be nice to have something like that be part of UO Forums and have it spread to the other shards. We're all on the same goal, I think, to bring news to the masses in a fun, interesting, and consistent manner. There is definitely room for collaborative efforts.

I agree, flesh out some ideas and pass them on to me, LC, or Kayhynn? I love the fact that there is a spark of interest in news again!

Hey guys, I sent some ideas over PM (on old forums, which we couldn't "reply to all") I am hoping that everyone got them... if not let me know I'll forward.  Love these new forums! :)

 

Thanks LC for all the hard work.
