Five on Friday - November 7, 2008
"Will the Blessed spellbooks that are dropping from the invasion on Siege be fixed?"
We are aware of this issue and we're working on a fix for it.
"Why are we seeing so much lag since the 4th of November?"
We are trying to track down the cause of the recent lag problems and would like to request that if you are currently experiencing latency to send a traceroute to UOBugs.com, make sure to please include the shard you are playing on as well!
"Will the entrance to Khaldun in Trammel on Oceania be fixed?"
Good news! Yes, we have fixed this issue and players should now be able to exit from both entrances now.
"I started a character transfer right before the rollback on Europa, and I am unable to find my character on either shard. When can I expect it to be fixed?"
We have identified all the character transfers that were started at that time and we're working hard to fix the issues. Please be patient until Monday and report any uncompleted transfers to UOBugs.com at that time.
When will the Event Moderater Applications be up and are there any special requirements?
The application is up, please click on the Event Mods button located on the right of the main UOherald page, it will take you to the application. You must be 18 years old, know UO and have a creative mind. Good luck to everyone who applies.
Is Magincia Starting To Look....Cleaner?
From Draconi: "Why yes! Your efforts in Magincia are already paying off: the debris strewn throughout the land has all but disappeared. This should vastly improve client lag in Magincia."
What's To Come:
We are adjusting the town criers to update faster on all shards, and come Thanksgiving something unusual will be happening to the champ spawn bosses.

A couple of weeks ago we took a photo of the UO Team - well all members who were present in the building here in Fairfax. There are a few missing but we couldn't resist but to have some fun with it. Enjoy the UO Team photo!
I want to thank everyone for such a warm welcome this week, you folks are just awesome and I love the UO community. Have a great weekend and I'll see you on Monday.
