Other threads have cheered this thing to death, Jahmen, and it's probably a good idea to (re-) post) the voting mechanism, if only to exhaust options. But here is what may be missing in these discussions, IMHO (or did I miss something already ?):

1. Is it a Fan choice, anyway ? (I suspect not....see reasons below)

2. What does CyanWorlds call it ? ("Open Source Uru Live" (OSUL) at one time (now removed); and presently "Myst Online", per references below)

3. I vote "Myst Online" (MO)

The root question needs a definition of constraints, (i.e) "It (the name) has to uniquely identify itself from past and future named dervatives, identify its immediate heritage, but allow upward compatibility with any future derivative's names; and it must fit the existing CyanWorlds rights of legal ownership" - which might be CyanWorld's requirements, I assumed. (So it couldn't be (Cosmic?) OSMO for instance).

So I monitored Chogon's Posts on "Home", "Play", and "Developers", here on Mystonline. At one time "Play" called it "OSUL"; that seems to have been editted out subsequently. So the default language appears to be "Myst Online" (MO ?). That gives it a whole new flavor (to me), implying more(? :wink: ) than Uru:CC Live or MOUL, even if that's how we should happen to start. So that's my vote, "Myst Online", (MO). Here is a partial Chogon quote from "Home" to substantiate: -

"However, all of us at Cyan and everybody that has ever worked on the creation and building of the dream called Uru Live (a.k.a. Mudpie, Untìl Uru, Myst Online: Uru Live and MORE) can not just let it die! (My definitions: “Uru Live” is the original dream of the virtual world. And “Myst Online” is the current implementation of Uru Live.)

So, Cyan has decided to give make Myst Online available to the fans......."

"MORE" never happened (as planned) because CyanWorlds chose Open Source instead (?), but I suppose that it could still be a valid optional name.....dunno....seems like it should be CyanWorlds "designer's choice".

Thanks for the opportunity.....

While I might agree myself to this in theory, it was not as it was posted. Or is this a persuation tactic?

Look! I'm just the flunkie monkey that collects the posts and lists what the explorers write as writen, best I can.


Thats an idea that go's alone the lines of "its easy to try and improve then to create"

MORE is a different beast with Cyan involvement and may or may not come later.

You can't change facts, Jahmen. MORE is a reserved name.

Even though the development of MORE Urulive has been progressing (the new account system is nearly done!), I'm sorry to say that outside events have caused us to put this project on indefinite hold.

You're after a name for its successor / replacement.

Rusty, This thread is for people to post the name they would like Open Source Game to be called as suggestions to Cyan and for fun. Note: Doubtful few would not argue your point.

If you wish to debate or take exception with any name(s) posted for any reason,
Please, go to this thread http://mystonline.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=16656. where names and reasons are being discussed.

This thread is just for explorers to post what they would like for the name to be and their reasons (optional) for what they post, without it becoming a subject for debating here. Thanx

I propose we stick with Myst Online - it actually got publicity, somewhat, under that name on GameTap; also, people remember the Myst series even if they don't remember URU. If excluding people is undesirable, which it is, we should go with what will be most recognized.
