    Ghost Bear and wiki punks...

    http://lorebook.lotro.com/wiki/Ghost_bear

    Must be some inside joke at Turbine, or Patience working on some mad flash skills.

    Now, this does bring up a valid point, who will be maintaining the wiki from silly posts?

    Will it be a team of Turbine employees or just one?

    People that abuse the wiki with useless info will easily be spotted, but what about incorrect info?

    Things that close, but not quite correct? Are we going to have a team look at every submission and make sure that what they entered is accurate and simple to understand?

    And players that abuse and try to deface the wiki, can they be banned from the game?

    Furthermore, will you extend the suspension or ban to the game as well? If someone wants to dork up a resource, I really don't want them playing this game, screwing that up too. I know it's a thin PR line you will have to walk, but as a player, I wish that anyone who does any sort of disturbance on any official LOTRO to have their services on all LOTRO services disrupted, either temporary or permanent, depending on the severity of the incident.

    I imagine that they'll have a team of people working on it. Both Turbine employees and a core group of dedicated players.

    Incorrect information is hard to spot, but easy to change. Should someone say that an NPC is in Combe, when she's really in Staddle, that's an easy thing to fix. It may be a little frustrating at first, but it's also part of the power of a wiki - it allows you to easily make corrections to mistakes that other people have made.

    Your Lorebook account will be tied to your game subscription and many of the same posting rules for the forums will apply.

    By limiting contribution to paying subscribers we expect to decrease the level of vandalism often seen at completely open wikis. Additionally, as with the forums, bad behavior may result in bans up to and including permanent bans, so there will be a strong incentive for players to avoid vandalizing the content of the wiki.

    And yeah, the Ghost Bear is a joke from Beta that many will will recognize.

    Fantastic idea with keeping it to paying customers. This has settled some things in my mind.

    And Ghost Bear will NEVER DIE! Just as my kinmates in vent when I randomly roar.

    Oh, and to the last poster, click the words *smile*

    It would be a riot if a new class of bear mobs with stealth is added and thrown onto the new Evendim map.

    Don't ever get rid of Ghost Bear. He was my companion on those long horse rides, and while running through the Midgewater Marshes (where a bear couldn't be found).

    He's the best!

    Long live Ghost Bear!

    and before that we had the ever-present dread sound, and screen effects making us sick

    I'm so glad the dread mechanic has been rethought.

    way to go turbine on the awesome wiki . . . I mean Lorebook!

    Oh, I so missed the Ghost Bear! It warms my heart to hear him in all his glory again.

    Now he's only a click away. Well, three clicks actually. After the Alt-Tab of course. Wait, I've got to finish this quest real quick.

    Oh look! A node! I'll take it! What? It vanished! Son of a ninja-...

    *ROAR!!!!!*

    Geeze! What was that?!?! There are no mobs around...


    Ahh yes. A proper tribute to beta.

    You know I don't know if it's some Dev's sick joke but lately I've been hearing a Ghost Cow around. I was out near the North of Bree by the graveyard when I first heard it and then in the Bree's LM house. I have never heard a cow in-game before. I'm not pulling anyone's leg either.

    Ghost bear used to scare the **** outta me when I'd be playing late at night with no lights on, all silent, just running somewhere and all the sudden I'd hear the roar of the Ghost Bear and I could have sworn he was right in my living room. It also doesn't help that I live in the middle of the woods anyways....

    Same here. The first time, I about jumped out of my chair, as I was standing at a vendor and heard it, sounding very close. "Ack!! A freakin' bear's gonna jump me!!"

    After a time, I kind of got used to it....

    LOL, it's so funny how now everyone is missing the Ghost Bear, but back in beta every 2nd post was about how annoying it was and how Turbine should fix it ASAP.
