"urulal - land alloted in exchange for a share of the crop to different
individuals, but especially to personnel of the temple to
supplement their income."
(http://www.geocities.com/digital3v14/texts/sumerdic.htm)

"uruku - larvae" (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/uruku)

I would like to stay with the word MORE. I change the word from Experience to Exploration because we are going to launch exploration not an expetience.

Myst
Online
Restoration
Exploration

I don’t like acronyms. They appeal to English speaking people only. I prefer a name, short, simple, evocative. Uru is perfect.

MORE stood for "Myst Online Rerestoration Experiment", which is still quite fitting.

(I still prefer plain ol' "Uru", though.)

I wonder how he'd feel to be singled out and have a game named after him. :D

I'm up to whatever it is called. OpenURU is my favorite suggested, as it is simple and descriptive. One problem that I see with just calling it Uru is that Uru could be thought of as the generic term for the game. I have always called it that unless I am referring to a specific version. I don't think I am the only person here who does that. People could refer to Uru and you don't know if they are talking about the game in all of its forms or just the open source version.

OpenURU could be problematic as well, as it would be abbreviated to OU, and the dyslexic among us could confuse it with Uru Obsession!

I still think it is a restoration experiment so, MO:RE
MystOnline is fine by me as is URU, but since we will want to differentiate between the various games and "incarnations" then MO:RE is the most accurate.

I think URU should take a page from other GNU projects with their names:

Lame Ain't an MP3 Encoder
GNU's Not Unix
Allegro Low Level Game Routines
LiVES is a Video Editing System

And so on.

So, I propose:

Uru: Restored Universe
