I guess we do still have a website after all, and with as low of traffic as we get here, it is really sad spammers even waste the time to try spamming such a low traffic site. Then again they probably don't care because once they get you in a spam list, scripts can automatically post to every one on the list. Probably would take them more time to go through their spam list to remove us than it would to just say screw it and hit post.

As a side note, I would love to be able to play again, but I hate that I not only still do not have much time to play, but I lost access to my account somehow. I can log onto my cleric account but Jimbop is currently lost. I tried once to call and get access but it did not work. The email to that account, I no longer have the ability to access since it was an old ISP address they took away when I cancelled. So unfortunately, it looks like not only is the character retired forever, but also the Earring of Living Slime is forever buried on it. lol

Yeah tell me about it. I have actually had the whole house to myself all day with nothing to do (girlfriend took the kid with her aunt and went shopping at the mall) and have really wanted to at least log in today and mess around a bit but can't. So I ended up playing some Minecraft instead. Lol. I just do not think I could ever get fully back into EverQuest again and not at least have access to my mage. I have tried out several different classes but always came back to it because I loved nuking and having a kickass pet too much. That and trying to gear up a new account after all this time away along with not having much time to play regardless probably just would not be that much fun anymore. I have been out of the game for just a bit too long at this point I believe. Even my last comeback did not get me up to par with the times then.

this might be due to the April 2011 shut down. If you didn't update your password within 60 days of 15 of May 2011 or something like that - they froze all the old accounts. a lot of peeps lost their accounts that way.

I was able to keep a dozen dead accounts I had active thru this change - a few peeps went on to reclaim their accounts from me - but - so many permanently lost access during this.

As a sad side note, I think I created / promoted at least 2 mages on the dozen accounts I still have control of to level 85. I think I did a cleric, 2 X Mages, 1 X Druid, 2 X wizards, and... an Enchanter. Something else too - but it escapes me - a Shaman maybe. So if you want to play an 85 mage...

I recovered my account so I am all good. I am trying to download the game now so hopefully sometime this week I will get to log in.
