[Sticky] READ BEFORE POSTING Europa Forum FAQ (updated 2007)

Not open for further replies.


Welcome to the Europa forum on UO Stratics. Please read the following before posting here.

Remember that in signing up for a Stratics account you agreed to abide by the rules of conduct

These include, but are not limited to:

C. Personal attacks are prohibited. This specifically means any text/post that is blatantly attacking another person on or off the forum, especially in a personal way.

Accusing people of wrong-doing by name also comes under this heading. If you have evidence of rule breaking, send it to EA.

G. Advertising of player-run shards is prohibited. Additionally our forums are not designed to provide technical support for shard emulators and as such all discussions related to building and maintaining a shard are prohibited.

H. Posting details of bugs and exploits in such a way that others are able to perform said bug or exploit is prohibited. In addition, documented involvement in activities that prove to be malicious and/or illegal in nature as it concerns the gaming industry as a whole will lead to immediate and permanent banning from the forums.

J. Posting of pornography, racist or otherwise discriminating remarks, threats to cause physical or mental harm, extreme offensive language, material that breaks any law or otherwise totally unacceptable posts or links to pages that contain the aforementioned material may result in an immediate ban from the forums

L. Spamming the forums is prohibited.
Posting to boost your post count or annoy people may result in action being taken against your account.
Posting the same thread on multiple boards is also classed as spamming, although duplicating a post on a shard board and a profession board would be acceptable.

It should be noted that links in a message are regulated by the same rules as the post itself.


You are welcome to post in any language you wish, however, please include a translated copy in English, so that everyone can understand your post. This applies to all languages (Orcish, Elvish, Swedish, German, etc...)

Babbling should be confined to the babble thread (created by a moderator). If people continually babble out of the babble thread then they will unfortunately face warnings

For more lively interactive conversation try IRC (irc.stratics.com:6667, channels #europa or #ultima-online). A guide to setting up IRC and connecting to the Stratics network can be found here: http://chat.stratics.com/content/community/quickconnect.php

Off Topic posts
Off topic means exactly that. Think before you post an OT thread.. Is it really needed? Why post in the Europa forum? Would it be better just as a post in the babble thread?
If you do post an off topic thread please clearly mark it (OT).
Posts that 'celebrate' attaining a new title (Journeyman, Lore Keeper etc), are not classed as deserving an OT thread.

Signature Tests
Signature should be 600x125 maximum and no more than 50kb in file size,

Do not post a signature test in the forum, you can check signatures by making sure "Preview Post" is ticked it will show you your signature without having to post a thread.
Also bear in mind that your signature is also subject to RoC.

Multiple Posts
Events like server crashes affect us all. Before you start a thread bemoaning the fact that the shard has crashed please ensure that someone hasn’t already done it. One thread on the subject is sufficient.

Square Brackets
Posts with titles such as [News] [Sticky] and other uses of square brackets are reserved for use by Stratics Staff members only. This is to help users easily identify official News posts and alert them to other important information. For this reason we ask that you mark posts (OT) or (RP) etc using parenthesis.

Role-play only posts
If you wish a thread to be Role Play based and do not wish OOC (out of character) comments to be posted on the thread please mark it in the subject with (RP).

Trade Post rules
You may: advertise your in game shop through the sticky thread
You may: promote in game changes/additions to your shop in a current thread
You may not: buy and sell individual items on the shard board.
Trade posts on UO Trade Europa please.
