So far as I can tell, Roser has been absent from these forums for over a month, now; about a month ago, I had observed dialogue suggesting that Rose was gone.

Well, I am not happy about this, at all: I possess a lot of respect for Rose; in so many ways, again and again, he has continuously contributed to the quality of this server.

I was gone from UOSA for a long while, myself: I was involved in an IRL accident, which broke my right femur; even though I had been hospitalized for only 5 days, the absence conspired with my 'refresh-laziness' to ensure that all of my UOSA properties had dropped; and 99% of my wealth went with it as, at that time, there had existed bank-box restrictions.

I hope that Rose has not suffered any misfortune.

Rose, I think a lot of people, past, present, and future, would feel diminished in your absence: return to us when you can.

Any/all who feel likewise, please sing out.

SS

Roser got upset about the verbage of the ruling of in game transactions for real money and went inactive. Upon returning he 'gave' his account information to a couple players that took his stuff from what I understand. There was a lot of drama surrounding it and I believe his accounts have been suspended. It is unlikely that he will return as himself, but maybe will come back one day as a fresh start. I never really had a problem with Roser until he had issues with me which he himself conjured up in his mind and I do wish him well and would be nice to see him back.

I find this hard to believe. The rules have been posted since 2009 by Dereck. Why would Roser have a problem with them at this point in his UOSA career that would make him quit?

Basically it's a matter of interpretation... The way he had interpreted the rules, he thought someone was guilty of a bannable offense. After public discussion with a GM he realized that while that person violated the spirit of the law they did not violate the letter of the law.

The accused, to my knowledge, has never publicly admitted whether or not he did the deed so I will not name him here.

I had no idea about any of that. So what was the deed that happened that only broke the "spirit of the law"?

I'm guessing it's not licit to ask, at least of the Administration. tiredat52, thanks for chiming-in.

Grofus, D'nD,

Thanks for giving your best information.

Assuming re-kindled interest, and an appeasement to Administration for any infractions, Rose might return to us.

Crap, does this mean I have to take-up the mantle of Forum-grieving Vega? I'm not sure I'm up to it, nor can divert the requisite time and effort ...

I definitely can not afford the immense quantity of BBQ baby-back ribs that would be required to stave him away from the server: 2017's Q4 was not nearly that good to me.

Sorry, Vega (though, not terribly: I don't think I've ever thrown a 'fat' joke at you): I'll plead that I couldn't resist.

You'll PK me, anyway, next time you see me.

SS

You guys are so weary of upsetting someone.

Rose tried to have vega banned for irl transactions. He made a big presentation out of it, posting something is coming on the date , yada yada. When he didn't have enough evidence to satisfy his desires he rage quit.
