On the OSMO subject. I'm curious as to why Chogon suggested it, but... If COSMIC is Cyans No.1 for future development then somehow the name maybe does not conflict, but help get cross product attention. After all URU is a CYAN product.

From now on my vote is for OSMO! If only because I want to know. But in reality it also is the best/most descriptive acronym suggested.

Ok, I realize it is Cyan who ultimately decides what it is going to be called, but so far I have done a bit of culminating. I don't profess it is 100% accurate, as there are two threads where names float around, and some have repeated their choice a few times :) Also, note that I left out the ones that only got suggested once. What I came up with, so far, is

Name - Votes
Uru - 29
Moose - 12
Uru Live - 11
OpenUru - 6
More - 5
Osmo - 4
MystOnline - 3
Uru Alive - 3

(Yes I know, I'm daft and had too much time on my hands today, that's what happens when you get snowed in :lol: )

Sophia, thanks for good list, but you (and everyone else) forget one: SOUL. (Was it Sourcecode Open : Uru Live?).

I can accept URU, MOOSE or everything else.

I like MOOSE because it is crown head of forest. I just like that.
URU or MOUL is so familiar, that I recognize it everewhere.

But...

SOUL sounds like it is alive, breathing and advancing. So I give my vote to SOUL. Secondary MOOSE. And so on. It could be MOREM (Myst Online: Restoration Experition Moraine) also, or something else.

P.S. Moraine is very common soil in Finland. Well, in southern Finland.

Awww, yes, Rusty is quite right, I only saw it once. But if I missed it a second time, I'll add it of course! Also, I know that less than a hundred opinions does not really make a good indication of what everybody wants (right, Semp? ;) ) so let's consider this a fun thread to kill some time while waiting for some SOURCE codes :lol:

:D

You're right!
You know my little daughter called Myst Online: URU. (She never knew about URU before) So I guess even if the project name is MOFFAT (Myst Online for Free the Fans All Toil) it is URU we are going to be playing.

Since it's Cyan's name, they have the ability to determine if we can use a name or not. But if the source is open, people can use it to develop their own projects with whatever name they like (hence the "scary" aspect mentioned on the front page).

Of course I realize this is to name whatever project the community will hopefully rally around (so we don't have tons of offshoots and people fragmenting the fanbase), in which case I say Cyan can determine, otherwise we should probably just stick with something very close to Myst Online: Uru Live (or Open) for simplicity's sake. "Keep it simple, silly" as they say :)

I came up with one that I think would work really well:

Sourcecode Heaven - Unlimited Treasures in Uru for People

You do realise that people will get confused in conversation when you speak Uru, meaning Uru Prime or Uru CC.

I learnt that problem the hard way.

That is why i'm supporting MOOSE, and will likely to be always referencing moose to this iteration, to save confusion

Newbies won't know about URU:ABM or URU:CC and oldbies can be trained / educated. :)

OK for MOOSE then! Let's just make it a little twisted and call it 'Elk'

And in general conversation how would you explain something different in Uru Prime and CC?

There are just too many iterations to be confused with just ONE acronym, hence the suggestion to call this one MOOSE.


I know about acronyms all too well in my job, where we have a manual of them that we talk to each other in, simply having just one would be feasible
