On CNET and article was published that in part opened the possiblity that GameTap sees an ongoing relationship with its user base within the Uru:Live community as partners in creating new content for the game.
I know that many have discussed tools for the game, I wonder what exactly does GameTap have planned? Does anyone have better information or speculation on exactly what is in store for this in the future?

Below is a part of that article, and here is the link:

Ron Meiners, a contract community manager for Game Tap said GameTap is considering adding all-new elements of user-created content to "Uru Live" and that by doing so, the network is hoping to leverage the creative capabilities of the playing community. Such a move makes sense, since many of today's most popular online games heavily depend on letting users contribute much of the content. That serves two main purposes: It keeps in-world content continually fresh, and it means development costs are lower.

"We're still working out how this will work, but people could create clothing, objects or even entire new worlds," said Meiners. "The 'Myst' games are based on travel to new worlds, and the solving of challenges there. The community created a few of those...Part of the whole mythos was the creation of whole new worlds as an artwork and we're working on enabling the community to engage in that."

That means the new "Uru Live" universe could well be populated with buildings, trees, sculptures, landscapes, oceans and other user-created objects, all of which, GameTap developers hope, will enhance the in-world environment.

"The worlds created for 'Uru' can be quite fantastic, and very beautiful," Meiners said. "So this opens tremendous doors of creativity and challenge."

Last I heard, they were still gathering information on it. There were a number of conversations with the Age Builders group and Eric L of GameTap.

Cyan wants to do it. I don't think they have said anything beyond that, though.
