    Shadowjack, Cordelia Black,

    The idea to provide Zyler with an item in commemoration of his labors and generosity to the server is a very noble and justified gesture. Even as a staff member, I whole heartily agree with this kind of give back to players that do so much for the shard. The generosity of our player base is probably one of the strongest aspects of UOR that provides a foundation for new players to select us.

    Unfortunately, the exchange of items from players to staff members, and then from staff members to players is not something I think we can accomplish. The creation of trophies, prizes, and platinum relative to staff organized events is a different story. The idea is not dead in the water, we just have to accomplish the task at hand from a different route.

    Another potential route would be to select an active player among yourselves, that could hold the platinum until the goal was reached. The selected would have to be chosen by the players without the input or delegation of the staff. This player would also require (in my eyes) a tremendous amount of trustworthiness. The server flourishes because of our strict but needed rules we have in place, that adequately dictate even our actions. Again, I am not trying to derail the idea, because I think it is very notable, we just need to coordinate the correct path to take.

    If you guys have any further questions, do not be afraid to PM me or contact me via IRC. The door is always open.

    Understand completely and i think that was a supremely fast,clear and kind reply. Also agree that the community and overall kindness even among the thieves and murderers particularly with new players truly sets UOR apart,above and beyond any other shard! And our talk in IRC gave me an idea...

    Zyler has had what? 50+ million donated and given away? Worth WAAAY more than 1 000 plat. Perhaps the trustworthy person to lock it down and keep track of the number untill it reaches 1000 is Zyler himself? Who else has time and time again been given wealth beyond measure only to give it back to the shard without hesitation? Just an idea.. thoughts people? @ShadowJack ?

    We'll figure something out, we've already got a fantastic start to the good folks donating.


    I was thinking of maybe asking Jupiter to handle the plat when we get enough gathered. Or as stated above, we can trust zyler to hold it. Either or is fine with me. I don't think anyone wants to pull anything shady with this situation!




    Andddd finally, thanks Zy!

    For sure there are many that would,better believe it,this is UO. But i would trust Jupiter too. Not for his wealth which i know nothing of,but because he doesnt seem to place any value on pixels at all. I doubt he would even consider taking 1 plat from the pile and covering it up. Nor Zyler whos held over 50 million and given ALL of it away,if not more. Again and again.
    @ShadowJack i truly believe you have a high chance of succeeding in this,for zyler. Tman supports it as much as he can,he cant directly do anything but he can advise us with his long experience as one of the most successfull players before becoming a GM,in how to take on such a task as this.

    And he truly is nice,quick to respond and friendly on IRC/forum. I hardly know the guy and he jumped at the chance to atleast give his suppo rt in heart and spirit. :)

    Cant wait to hear what zyler thinks of you doing this for him!! :D AngelJack :p

    I can start a plat pile at Paws tower that folks can put their plat on.

    If folks would like to donate they can put the plat there. And once we have a list of names, I can put a book together to give to Zyler with all our names (you can be anonymous if you wish)

    You may be a crooked wizard,but you are wise and kind. And i believe,trustworthy even if it were 10 000 plat.
    but shadowjack has to decide,im just another guy who wants to donate like everyone else in the thread. :)

    In a rare show of indulgence, I imbibed in order to help comfort a soul who was experiencing the bittersweet taste that often accompanies a farewell. So sue me! I'll be back to goat's milk and abstinence next week ;)

    And, i'll have you know I managed to lock down 10 out of 11 coins... not sure where they other one got to....

    Aww shucks...

    Thank you all

    All I ask in return is for you to help new players and each other when you can
    Also, be kind to one another (this is only a game and 99% of the people here are good folks; I have been dismayed of late at some of the posts)

    And honestly, I would never put a char statue on my roof
    But thank you for the thought

    (However.... if you raise holiday coins, I will spin the cacti wheel over and over until I win a Christmas Cactus)

    I don't think you have to put the statue on our roof, you could seat one at a table and have a nice long talk with yourself!

    Of course by "you could seat one at a table and have a nice long talk with yourself" I meant I'd be happy to donate 10 plat or HC to this cause! Just say when and where :)
