Once again, something that should be on the UO Herald, is of course not on the UO Herald.
We already had the unannounced 14-day renewal bonus that ended today.
Now we’ve got a thread up on Stratics, where Petra Fyde explains that the UO team is looking for people whose houses are 10 years or older:
Calling all house owners!
Do you have a house that is 10 years old or more? We, in collaboration with the UO Team, want to locate them all.
Mesanna is asking for Vet Houses to step right up! Submit your house information if you have a house placed for 10+yrs to receive in game recognition of your accomplishments!
Fill in our simple form and tell us about it. Where is it? Shard, facet, co-ordinates. Find these with a sextant if you need to. Tell your friends too, we want to find every home 10 years and older on all shards. Help us find them all, Mesanna is counting on us!
Find the ‘information’ page on the house sign, enter the date in the same format as it is shown on the sign
There are a lot of people who do not follow UO-related forums for one reason or another. Come to think of it, they probably don’t follow the Herald, for that matter, but that’s beside the point.
This isn’t a dig on Stratics either, this is a dig on the at times non-existent UO community relations team. In the old days, these kinds of things would be mentioned on UO.com, because that’s the official website for communications. It should also be in the client login screen.
If the Herald was actually updated with this kind of stuff, more people might start following it.
