For those of you who have been around a while, you may dimly recognize UOX Stratics. Stratics was one of the early supporters of the Ultima Online Emulation movement back when such programs as UOX3 were the most popular Emulation software available. Things have changed greatly since then in the world of UO emulation, and judging from conversations and comments in the Opt-In Unleashed section on Stratics it has become apparent that a sizable portion of our active community members either do or have in the past spent some considerable time playing on non-Official servers. Since we have no official ties to Broadsword or the Ultima Online team and haven't for a few years now, it has been increasingly hard to justify not allowing a place for discussion of Freeshards in light of this information.

There are a few expectations and they will be encouraged and if necessary rigorously enforced.
  • We expect all our community members to be civil outside the Opt-In only Unleashed forum.
  • The new forums will fall under the current RoC with one exception. There will be a forum for 3rd Party Ultilities/Clients available. In this forum you can ask for help with and discuss 3rd party utilities and clients with only one reservation. Many of the 3rd party utilities include some type of basic scripting functions. You may not share, or assist others in writing or obtaining scripts. For this purpose a script is defined as, "A program or script that runs inside a program or utility, designed to automate a process with the intent of or result in giving one player an unfair advantage over another". As you can see this goes well beyond creating macros, and we will be strictly enforcing this rule.​
  • We expect there to be no bashing back and forth over which is "better" Official or Un-Official servers. Discussing the merits of each is fine, but as was said before we expect civility.​

Currently we plan to have these forums open to the public starting Next Week. We hope you all enjoy these new forums.

Another step in the right direction. Great job Stratics team! I have a two very similar questions:

Are the rules of conduct changing so I could potentially say, "I use *name of 3rd party utility* to do that, it works really well" in response to a question involving macros?

Could I say, "*name of freeshard* has that particular feature" in response to a feature suggestion?

The RoC for the rest of the UO forums will stay as is.

Fun stuff :) UOX welcomes the homage to the olden days, back when Stratics hosted both the website, IRC channel and "House of Commons" chat for UOX :p

Considering the UOX3 project is alive and kicking and we wouldn't want to cause confusing the section has been renamed to UOEmu Stratics.

We actually changed the name due to a potential conflict with existing named website but as @Stinky Pete said, it has been up for a while.

You can scroll down on the main forum listing or take this link. UOEmu Stratics
