    The Trinsic Rose is on there twice...150 and 157. Going through the ones that were just added today.

    I am glad they added that one, the pictures Threnody posted didn't do it justice!

    nvm I guess she did two of them...maybe might not want to name them both the same, very confusing!

    My 2 did not make it to the stone and I entered them on day 3 of the contest. I feel that they should wipe all votes until they fix their mistake. I work full time so I cannot pop into game when a Dev posts that they will be at brit commons.  I think it is pretty unfair to those going onto the stone late. Seems like a bunch of people got an advantage in voting by getting on the stone. Actually, if they just wipe the stone clean and give a few days for everyone to re-enter the contest would be a good solution. I won't hold my breath.

    Knightly Castle is at 74o 06' N 58o 30'E (Tram) Ruby Knight is the owner
    Castle Byers is at 53o 32'N 28o 29'E (Tram) The Lusty Wench is the owner

    I dont think its going to matter in the end.  Im sitting here at the stone watching people gate in their voters. 

    The folks who bribe or are a part of large guilds will be controlling which designs make it to the end.  
    Nobody needs to gate in anyone as all toons are born here with a rune book with 9999 charges, and a preset rune to the bank 10 paces east. 
    Yesterday I too had a gate open full time for mepole AT the stone to go visit my house , while my place was not on the stone yet... and bystanders went into the gate, and came back again through the constantly open gate.. to and from my house.
    So please stop the conspiracy theories!
    not really a conspiracy theory unfortunately, I went through the gate they were doing and it went to New Haven town square... I wouldnt have posted if the gate went a house...

    I can understand some frustration surrounding this but my take on the voting is, if you’ve built a place and hope to get into the finals or ultimately win, you’re going to vote for your own design. So you’ll be patient with yourself and wait for your design to show up on the stone. 

    If you’ve got friends and guild mates you’re looking to recruit to vote for your design then you were most likely able to tell them your design wasn’t showing on the stone. And they’ll most likely be patient and wait for your design to show up.

    And if you’re hoping you’ll get votes from players who like to look at all the designs available before they vote, I think there’s little to fear about not having a chance for your design to be seen. 

    Because there’s no way players had a chance to look at all the designs on the stone before the devs showed up and started to fix the issue. They got there quickly and stayed for a long time. And came back the following day. 

    Given how much chat there was on TC there’s no way players who were touring the castles didn’t see what was going on and wouldn’t know more entries were going to be added. 

    I don’t think what happened will make much if any of a difference in the outcome.

    But if i had seen say xyz i wouldn't have voted for pdq so it of course makes a difference....

    If you’re someone who’s going to vote before seeing many designs then it is what it is. You’ve already decided to cut most of the designs out of the running without ever having seen them. 

    The problem was noticed right away. The devs were working on the problem right away. There were 108 designs on the stone to start. There’s no way players got through many of those before it was a known issue that would have come to the attention of those calling off the stone.

    @Bleak i am being told EJ accounts can use the brown portal to remove EJ status, and can then vote... might wanna remove the gate... maybe wipe the votes and start over after that?
  • LarisaLarisa Posts: 841
    I was just about to post that Norry. I just tested it and yes, I was able to vote.

    PLEASE remove that gate, wipe the votes and start fresh once all the new castles have been added!

    All this for a contest that realistically impacts under a hundred people (castle owners) maybe in future only accounts that own castle or keeps are allowed to enter and vote ..

    How many EJ accounts do you think did that and then BUILT the castle? I think it would be unfair for someone with 1 paid account that has 2 other EJ accounts to essentially get 3 entries.... also not sure how it would work for someone to place multiple houses on the same account to place entries and then change ownership around ass needed between another account. Should be 1 entry per paid account and honestly 1 entry per person regardless. In my opinion having multiple entries per account like I've seen people post above is like someone bringing their kids along for the extra raffle tickets just so they have more chances to win.

    I wonder if there is a way to wipe characters without resetting the shard. Any ejs that went through the gate could revote

    I suspect there's way more castle owners than you imagine. Origin seems quite empty and at least 40 come to mind. Times how many servers?...

    Math isn't your strong suit is it.  100 castles total in all of UO, LMAO 4 castles per shard.

    Votes have been reset. Those that voted have to vote again. If they get this memo.
  • LarisaLarisa Posts: 841
    Greetings Everyone, We have reset all votes for the Custom Castle contest. All eligible houses will be added to the voting list by us so there is nothing you need to do. The voting dates have not changed so be sure to cast your vote for your favorite castle. We apologize for all the confusion with the Castle Contest. This was an error on our part. We have brought TC1 down to fix the issue and it will return within 30 minutes. We appreciate your patience with us! Good Luck, UO Team

    THANK YOU TEAM for fixing it so quickly :)
