I have suggested to more than one person that if they really want to do something constructive to bring Uru back, then they should organize members of the community who can actually make it happen and then write a serious proposal to Cyan outlining an offer to do so. Only one person has chosen to take on this monumental task: Jamey has started a thread on the forum. When I saw the replies he was getting, I told him that this idea might not be feasible after all as it seems that many of the members who could make this happen seemed to have given up and moved on. His reply: "If I don't, who will?"

So, here we are asking for volunteers who can make this happen and assist in writing this proposal.

Note to the naysayers: it’s not going to hurt Cyan for us to discuss this and we realize that they may even be back on their feet and offering us MORE before we even finish writing it, but to us, that’s a win/win situation. We get Uru either way and have found a way to pass the time constructively. So… This is not open to discussion about whether or not we should do this, only HOW we can do this. If you don’t have something positive to offer, then please don’t post here. I will ask the moderators to assist us in keeping this thread tidy.

I’ll ask Jamey to post right after me with a list of positions he thinks we need. If you can help with one, please post here, IM one of us, or take the idea to your respective guild for discussion. Example: we need someone who can communicate with Cyan and reasonably expect a response so I’ve started a thread on the Guild of Messengers requesting assistance with that and ask that they post here when they have something to report.

Thank you all in advance for your cooperation and assistance in this matter.

Here are some of the positions I think we need to fill before making this proposal to Cyan:

Server Maintainers

Client System Managers

Promoters of the project

Age Writers

Concept designers for how things will be able to be run

UU server Experts

Someone to communicate efficiently with Cyan

Post a reply if you can assist with one or more of these or can think of others we need. I will edit this post with additions and changes.

There is no job listing for my ability to contribute in this matter. As BAD, moderator over the the Guild of Writers, will tell you, albeit in different words, I'm a better idea man for you than an implementer. In a related matter, I saw Jamey's post at the GoW. I'm glad to see it here because I have lost faith in the GoW as a forum for progressive and constructive discussions about something like this. As a matter of experience, you'll find more enthusiasm here among the people who are not so invested in how things have worked in the past.

I had plans to make my own proposal to Cyan, privately, because I saw little support from the places I thought that mattered. And because, like another lesson I learned last year in getting things done with Cyan in the IC world, it's better to contact Cyan or its agents directly than through public discussion. I might still do that when I feel the time is right. But for now, I'm a thinker, not a doer. Real life comes first for me and I don't have the idle time of the pre-collegiate and collegiate youth and the associated limitless future. If it comes to pass, I'd like to help lead an open source management organization for Uru. I've been trying to inspire support for a path toward that goal if Cyan is willing and able. But in the meantime, you're welcome to use my ideas or engage me in discussions on a private forum (that's a suggestion). I have otherwise invested all the significant time I care to spend publicly on the matter except to maintain something of an awareness.

Note taken, peteki

Thanks, Lynnutte. I knew I could count on the GoMe! :D

Glad to have you and Murray keeping watch, Sophia. We want to write something that Cyan will accept, so you could probably help us greatly in that respect.

Just to reiterate, this project is simply writing a proposal to Cyan and does not include doing anything else just yet. However, we really need the very people who could implement an accepted proposal to help us write the proposal. Any volunteers? (Your name could go down in Uru History.) :wink:
