it is ever so sad to see the same "Latest News" each time i log in .

the worst thing about it is the people who stumble across " www.mystonline.com " and are greeted by the horribly outdated and obviously disappointing message.

if open source does come about ...eventually. it's future will undoubtedly be diminished by the amount of people who have turned away at the sight of the greeting for these Great forums.

but no one really cares , i guess ..........

and the wind
cries mary.....

How would you propose to bypass them in their own project without consulting them, or, perhaps more accurately, without any feedback even when consulting them?

not exactly Kosher but the Guilds may be able to Micky rig a working model to present to Cyan if allowed, just to get things started mind you.

I would highly encourage and support anyone who was capable of doing so to write and submit a serious proposal to Cyan with an offer of assistance and/or setting up a legitmate shard.

Loads of information and resources can be found on the Open Uru site. See the signature of the facetious guy above for a link. :wink:

I think it would hafta be a team effort on behalf of all the potential shard owners and admins, If Cyan approved one shard and not all of them they would be running the potential of the whole situation become problematic.

Well, good luck with that one... :wink:
Seriously, if one person or a small team could write a proposal that was actually accepted by Cyan, then I'm sure the information would be published so that others would have an opportunity to submit their own requests for an approved shard. I'm just suggesting that someone could do the legwork to break the barrier for all of us.

I'll post the idea on the Writers Guild with a link to this thread.

Surely you jest :twisted: But if not, let me spell it out.

Without Cyan responding to suggestions and offers to help, without them releasing source code or without them giving permissions/instructions, even the GoW is not capable of doing anything but reverse engineering. While I APPLAUD the hard work of numerous individuals, and the marvelous things they have accomplished over the years, I'm sure most of us agree it is NOT the same as what we all had in mind for Uru in general, or Open Source in particular...

Oh, and I think we are well and truly hijacking S-F's thread... :wink:

Better to start those sorts of posts with "I am organizing... and here's my plan..." rather than "Who would like to organize..." Take responsibility. Be prepared for resistance and to follow a well-considered vision to its conclusion.
