I am appalled at how many servers are corrupted and think that they can make excessive amounts of things for their players! I have played OSI all my life up until a point about a couple years ago and never ever seen an issue there, I mainly think this is because it is a job not a game your playing. In the past month or so I have seen 3 servers be ruined in my opinion do to corruption! I am literally out of servers to play because of this issue. I understand that Admins should be totally paid for their volunteer work as staff but they already get a ton of things for doing that such as knowing the ins and outs of the server. I agree that if they are playing as a player and staff they should be rewarded in gold, items, etc based off of work 100% but my biggest issue is when they start adding items in that are beyond the borders that any other player can receive. That deters me as well as most other players. Is power that great? Is having that one item that no one has worth destroying a server? I will not lie and say I have never made my own player items because I have but I have never once made something that a player could not achieve in game. I guess I am just dreaming of the day where I can play an OSI Server that is balanced and ran by a staff that knows what they are doing, knows the parameters of UO... One thing that has been proved to me is: "Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely" Thanks for your ears! Please let me know about your stand on staff corruption? Do you defend the player with evidence or the staff member? Do you really check the logs of all staff members? I am very interested to see what precautions you take to make sure and admin is not destroying your server. Thank you once again.
