This is just a discussion, not an event announcement which is why it is posted here and not there. I saw Janeerah asking around if anyone was planning an anniversary celebration and thought I'd just get the ball rolling with some historical information to consider.


Some like to celebrate February 8th as the anniversary of the current incarnation of the cavern and some celebrate February 4th as .

For me, February 4th is simply Uru Day. Twice on that date (2004 & 2008), ahrotahn publishers announced that the cavern would be closing. But explorers refused to go quietly and simply carry on with their surface lives. Whether it was in shards, other online worlds or on forums, explorers continued to gather and keep Uru alive. Then, on that date in 2010, a post was made to the DRC forums that began the final chapter of our story which continues to this day.

If you would like to organize an event and need some ideas, here are just a few links to past celebrations:

Just a thought, but perhaps some might consider celebrating Uru Day on February 4th by hosting event(s) on other shards for newcomers who can't get an account on the Cyan MOULa shard.

Note: When making plans, keep in mind that Feb 4th falls on the first Saturday of the month, so the will be held that day at 13:00 KI time.

There is always much to celebrate in early February. This year, we can also celebrate the success of Cyan's first Kickstarter, Obduction and more importantly, the on-going improvements to which actually began at the end of the MOULa Fifth Anniversary celebrations. This week, he reported that things are "humdrum" and that is cause for celebration. :D

On, and don't forget to . :)

This year it's also 10 years anniversary of URU hosted by GameTap. 2007 was a year a lot of people joined URU, like myself. Well, there was something called Until URU before that, maybe someone can fill in on what happened then?

In 2007 there was so much activity in the cavern, there was the episodes there you could meet with CYAN characters in the cavern. Sometimes there were so many people there that you could hardly move in slow motion. The new age Annonay was released i the autumn that year, I remember standing in line at Watcher's Pub waiting for that book to appear opposite from the Ercana book.

Then Gametap closed down URU in early February 2008 and people became homeless. Some moved as refugees to Second Life, like myself, some joined shards and some just stayed posting in the forums.

But people didn't just give up and scattered around looking for something new, they kept in touch, waiting for URU live again.

I think that call for some kind of celebration later this year

Anyway, personally I’d be more inclined to celebrate the beginnings than the endings ;)

Thanks for that link, Korovev; I've added it to my OP under Significant Dates. I also love the idea of the Party Hop to various shards.

Kneb, thanks for the trip down memory lane.

AlanD & Zeke, thanks for jumping right in and volunteering.

Everyone, it appears TrapperDave has already begun , so be sure to post there if you have an event planned - even if it's just a regular weekly event like the AGM or Karaoke.

I was led to this thread in a roundabout way through Facebook. Thanks, Tai - I think Eddie (the ball) is rolling down the hill now :)

Celebrate the episodes? I guess I was the only one who hated that change and what it represented for Uru?

I stepped into online URU in Dec of 2003 during Prologue as CountryEastern. Feb 4 sounds perfect, since that was about the day the Cavern truly opened and the lag almost ended :)

Any Celebration in the Cavern is good. Thanks Tai for the post and the ideas. The fact that the Cavern is still alive is a great thing and Gift to All Explorers and we owe so much to the D'ni, the DRC, all of our fellow explorers past, present and future. Shorah and thanks to all.

/me is still waiting patiently for RAWA to get back to us about Yeesha's birthday. (We know she was born in 1815, but we don't know what day.)

I'm just going to assume Atrus' birthday is the same as Rand Miller's, for some strange reason....

I actually worked out when Atrus' birthday was, based on the info given in BoA. There's a thread about it somewhere on the boards, but tl;dr, I believe it's 30th April. January is completely ruled out.
