I'd rather just send Cyan a $10 bill in an envelope.. They get 100% and I get no Apple stuff on my computer... :P

That sounds like a good way, but it isn't. After all, since Cyan is a company, they need to declare how they got that money and who gave it to them. Money doesn't appear magically, so Cyan needs to account everything.

Perhaps if someone sponsored the open source project.

I know a lot of you have talked about "donations" and what not and the pros and cons of it all. Obviously it would be awkward for Cyan and more trouble than it's worth. So, here's an idea. Since Myst Online's end and subsequent stall/open source "preparations" were due to lack of funding, there may be a way to support Cyan and indirectly support Myst Online:

Buy Myst for the iPhone! Even if you don't have an iPhone, it's an easy way to throw some money Cyan's way. You can still buy the app. All you have to do is download iTunes, sign up for an account and buy the program in the App Store.


Anouther Option would be to buy Cyan games from http://www.gog.com

On that note about supporting Cyan by buying through gog.com, does anyone know how profits are divided between the companies?

good point, Whilyam, I looked at the website, but I wasnt sure how official it was....

However I have been reassured that mystwear.com is official, and a proper licensing fee goes to Cyan, as is correct. I got some mouse pads with Minkata from there.


UPDATE:
I checked again, and there is a link from Cyan Worlds to the gog site to sell Myst and Riven, so must be official! :)

Hey, wait... MystWear is back? I remember a discussion a few months ago where some people were saying that they'd tried ordering stuff but got errors. If it's back, that's cool!

I think a great idea would be an international oval sticker with D'NI or URU.

go to Cyan Worlds page, and link to gog.com, and if you dont have them already, purchase the updated versions of Myst Masterpiece and Riven. (After all, your original version might have been for Windows 98, and these versions are for XP and Vista! You have gotten a new pc since 1998, haven't you? lol!)

The way I look at it -- the best way to help Cyan is to do what we do for any game we like -- buy it, play it and enjoy it. So, for those who enjoy Cyan games on the iPhone or IPad, that would be buying and enjoying Myst. For people who want to experience or reexperience the games in the Myst series, and don't have them, that would be buying and enjoying the games in the Myst series. For people who think they might enjoy MagiQuest, that would be buying and enjoying Chapter 1 of MagiQuest, when it comes out.
