The Message Boards are divided into five overall topics, including:

  • Connectivity - find information and advice on server and connectivity issues
  • Development - discuss game features and development with other players and members of the UO development team
  • Role-Playing - discuss UO events and quests, or participate in in-character role-playing
  • In-Game Support - find answers to in-game support questions, or share your knowledge with others
  • Trading and Selling - trade and sell Ultima Online items. Please note: this topic is restricted to in-game transactions only.

Finally, before you run off to set up your account, we’d like to point out a few features of the message boards.
