(02/01 13:02:34) saikoyama: Yay!
(02/01 13:02:38) Korov’ev: 1. Please *keep chatter to a minimum* while speakers are talking. The occasional comment or emote is fine, but be respectful and let the speaker finish.
(02/01 13:02:47) Korov’ev: 2. If you have a question for a speaker, please don’t ask it directly: PM it to me. Be sure a “?” is somewhere in it to properly log the question in the queue.
(02/01 13:03:03) Korov’ev: 3. Speakers, please indicate when you are done speaking and ready for questions, and when you’re ready for the next question.
(02/01 13:03:17) Korov’ev: 4. If a question requires a long explanation, we may have to skip it to keep things moving. In that case, you can always PM any speaker once they’ve left the stage.
(02/01 13:03:25) Korov’ev: 5. A summary and a chatlog of this meeting will be published in the next few days on the Guild of Messengers’ site: https://guildofmessengers.org/

(02/01 13:27:23) shokhootahn Rehn: Next weekend will be a special Story Night – Europe. As part of the celebration of the 10th anniversary of MOULa, I will tell a special story of the Restoration. The Story will be held in Mir-o-Bot’s Baron’s Office and will not start until 14:30 KI time.
(02/01 13:27:46) Ro”Jethhe says WOW 26 weeks that’s 6 months.
(02/01 13:28:13) shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night is held in the public neighborhood of Tsahno’s Hood every Saturday.
(02/01 13:28:20) Kayara: And a lot of Kings!
(02/01 13:28:37) shokhootahn Rehn: Original Story Night is held at 23:30 KI time on Saturday night. We start gathering at the hood’s fountain starting at 23:00 KI time.
(02/01 13:29:01) shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night – Europe is held at 14:00 KI time on Saturday afternoon. We start gathering at the hood’s fountain starting at 13:30 KI time except for AGM Saturdays, when it starts at 14:00 KI or 30 minutes after the AGM, whichever is later.
(02/01 13:30:30) Handyman Henry says yay!
(02/01 13:30:55) shokhootahn Rehn: I post any changes to either of the Story Nights on the left-hand imager in the hood.
(02/01 13:31:24) shokhootahn Rehn: Times for original Story Night (Saturdays at 23:30 KI time) are unaffected by my traveling. However, they are affected by power outages due to thunderstorms… which, unfortunately, ’tis always the season. Should this be the case, I will try to aprise one or two of my regular audience members of the situation so they can spread the news. πŸ™‚
(02/01 13:31:57) shokhootahn Rehn: The stories are told using voice so you will need to have your speakers or headsets on.
(02/01 13:32:18) Grandbad checks KI … yep 13:30 now and evening.
(02/01 13:33:07) shokhootahn Rehn: r’Tayrtahn announces the start of Story Night through buddy chat. If you would like to receive the announcements, please send r’T a KI mail (with your KI number included in the text) and he’ll add you to his buddies list. His KI number is 58324. KI mails do not identify the KI number of the sender so it must be added to the body of the text.
(02/01 13:33:33) shokhootahn Rehn: YOU *MUST* INCLUDE YOUR KI NUMBER IN THE BODY OF THE MAIL TO BE ADDED!
(02/01 13:33:48) shokhootahn Rehn: Some have sent messages to be added but have not included their KI mail so they were unable to be added.
(02/01 13:33:50) jtrigg: no need to shout
(02/01 13:34:19) shokhootahn Rehn: Again, Story Night – Europe will begin 30 minutes after the conclusion of today’s AGM or at 14:00 KI time, whichever is later.
(02/01 13:34:40) shokhootahn Rehn: We hope to see you there!
(02/01 13:34:49) Handyman Henry: ty Rehn
(02/01 13:34:52) shokhootahn Rehn: Any questions?

(02/01 13:36:02) jtrigg: I know lol
(02/01 13:36:03) Korov’ev: Time for some Cyan news! Let’s get to *that* issue πŸ˜‰
(02/01 13:36:07) philipgr: πŸ™‚
(02/01 13:36:10) Korov’ev: A couple of weeks ago, Cyan announced their decision to retire a bunch of social media pages: Myst, Obduction and Firmament on Facebook; Myst, Obduction and Firmament on Twitter; Myst and Firmament on Instagram.
(02/01 13:36:17) Boywhith: yeah!
(02/01 13:36:22) Korov’ev: All the news will from now on come only from their main social media pages: https://www.facebook.com/CyanGames/ , https://twitter.com/cyanworlds , https://www.instagram.com/cyanworlds/
(02/01 13:36:22) Handyman Henry: :{
(02/01 13:36:39) Korov’ev: More controversially, Cyan also announced the retirement of the MOULa and Cyan forums.
(02/01 13:36:51) CT Hostess Susa’n: what????
(02/01 13:36:53) Korov’ev: On Tuesday, February 4 the forums will become read only. Registering an account for the forums will also be turned off, this is effective immediately.
(02/01 13:36:54) BIG thumbs down from Ro”Jethhe
(02/01 13:37:10) Korov’ev: On Tuesday, June 16, publicly-accessible threads will be archived, and the forum sites will no longer be hosted.
(02/01 13:37:13) Boywhith: That is very bad news!!!
(02/01 13:37:20) Korov’ev: This last point has been poorly worded in the announcement: the content of the forums will still be available IN SOME FORM, so the history of the community will be preserved, EXCEPT for the hidden threads, or personal messages.
(02/01 13:37:23) Sleeper Jan: yep
(02/01 13:37:23) CT Hostess Susa’n is sad
(02/01 13:37:49) Ro”Jethhe: You can thanks Windows 10 for this.
(02/01 13:37:56) Sleeper Jan: still wondering which one to join
(02/01 13:37:59) jtrigg: why?
(02/01 13:37:59) Alien: It’s not win 10
(02/01 13:38:07) Adi: i thought they used the word )”deleted”
(02/01 13:38:09) Korov’ev: WIn 10 has nothing to do with that
(02/01 13:38:09) Sleeper Jan: it’s the forum engine to blame
(02/01 13:38:15) Korov’ev: Because of this, users are encouraged to archive any PMs or specific threads they wish to keep personally before the change takes effect.
(02/01 13:38:18) philipgr: Is discord affected as well?
(02/01 13:38:26) Korov’ev: no
(02/01 13:38:28) angelmyst: If this Grandma can sort our Discord, anyone can..it is quite easy, and more fluid than the forum
(02/01 13:38:33) Korov’ev: PMs can be exported en masse as table files, and for single posts I’d suggest saving the BB code, to keep the formatting.
(02/01 13:38:43) Korov’ev: The rationale is: Cyan has a small team, and an even smaller subset of the team is responsible for PR.
(02/01 13:38:49) Korov’ev: Time spent managing social media is time spent NOT working on game development.
(02/01 13:38:57) Korov’ev: So, to avoid stretching their resources, they decided to limit the number of channels they use and monitor.
(02/01 13:39:04) Kayara: Will this also affect the Obduction Fan group? I always thought that this one was a fan-created discussion group though.
(02/01 13:39:08) Korov’ev: Even more controversially, Cyan announced that the forums will be replaced by the Official Cyan Chat Discord server: https://discordapp.com/invite/cyanchat
(02/01 13:39:11) Sleeper Jan: they could have asked for help but as there are other forums….
(02/01 13:39:23) Alien: Fan made groups not affected
(02/01 13:39:28) Korov’ev: Fan-managed groups will not be affected
(02/01 13:39:38) Korov’ev: Many fans have expressed their objections that Discord is not a suitable replacement for a forum.
(02/01 13:39:39) alexyna (I’m on the surface, be back in a minute):
(02/01 13:39:42) cjherkeless is
(02/01 13:39:48) Korov’ev: OpenUru.org, the Guild of Writers, the Guild of Archivists, the Guild of Messengers, and other fan groups have their own forums that will welcome anyone who prefer this time-tested format of discussion.
(02/01 13:39:52) Alien: Discortd IS a forum
(02/01 13:39:58) Alien: *Discord
(02/01 13:40:07) cjherkeless: sorry. i didn’t mean to just assert my existence there. oops.
(02/01 13:40:08) Korov’ev: It’s a chatroom
(02/01 13:40:11) Korov’ev: Events will still be regularly announced as usual on Facebook groups, Discord, and through the GoMe calendar.
(02/01 13:40:44) Alien: If you go by the origin of the word, this meeting is also a forum
(02/01 13:41:01) Adi: a physical one πŸ˜›
(02/01 13:41:20) Korov’ev: On Facebook, the main group is “MOULa : Anniversaries – Holiday – Events”
(02/01 13:41:21) Lu*: almost πŸ˜›
(02/01 13:41:37) Handyman Henry: Question to Cyan: How will they know when people can’t log in, on or have problems in-game?
(02/01 13:41:48) Korov’ev: Our next question is from aqua.
(02/01 13:41:48) Korov’ev: [aqua] Can a feed of the GoMe calendar be exported so that it can be imported into our own calendars, like Google Calendar etc?
(02/01 13:42:28) Korov’ev: The GoMe calendar is based on Google, so you can add the calendar if you have an account
(02/01 13:42:55) Korov’ev: Let me find the link…
(02/01 13:43:31) Ro”Jethhe: urutunes.com has an event calendar but it needs updating
(02/01 13:43:46) Korov’ev: Argh, her it is
(02/01 13:43:50) Korov’ev: https://bit.ly/GoMe_cal
(02/01 13:44:12) aqua: Thanks!
(02/01 13:44:25) Korov’ev: Yep, the UruTunes calendar is missing a lot of events
(02/01 13:44:37) aqua: (I couldnt find this on the GoMe website, might be useful to add)
(02/01 13:45:10) Korov’ev: For troubleshooting, https://support.cyan.com/ is open again
(02/01 13:45:30) Korov’ev: Or you can send and email to support[at]cyan.com
(02/01 13:45:49) CT Hostess Susa’n: Handyman, you can submit a ticket to Cyan Support
(02/01 13:46:08) Kayara: I remember vaguely that there is/was also a cyan-run website, that had all the DRC story stuff. Will that one be affected too?
(02/01 13:46:20) Korov’ev: These days, MOULa downtime is notified mostly via Discord
(02/01 13:46:38) Korov’ev: Our next question is from Alien.
(02/01 13:46:38) Korov’ev: [Alien] Will Rel.to be updated? I’d be happy to help with that
(02/01 13:46:44) J’Kla: Over the years Uru has been through way more disruption than this and survived
(02/01 13:46:57) Eternal Seeker: asaf as i Know swifthawk don’t supports the Urutunes calendar anymore
(02/01 13:47:19) cjherkeless: its uru. we’re explorers. we should pride ourselves, by now, on being indomitable.
(02/01 13:47:44) Korov’ev: We’ve been working on getting Rel.to back online for a while. We’ll announce it as soon as it will πŸ™‚
(02/01 13:48:03) Alien: Korov’ev Let me know if I can help
(02/01 13:48:41) angelmyst is indomitable!
(02/01 13:48:49) Korov’ev: The DRC forum went offline some time ago, but I think some people managed to rescue a copy
(02/01 13:48:53) Grandbad: πŸ™‚
(02/01 13:49:25) Korov’ev: Our next question is from CT Hostess Susa’n.
(02/01 13:49:25) Korov’ev: [CT Hostess Susa’n] How will we know the CAVCON levels?
(02/01 13:49:25) philipgr: The TOC forum has also been off for quite some time now.
(02/01 13:49:35) J’Kla: There are survivors of the Ubisoft shard withdrawal and we survived that
(02/01 13:49:53) shokhootahn Rehn: Therer’s also web.archive.org
(02/01 13:50:25) Korov’ev: We haven’t got Cavcon updates in years.
(02/01 13:50:35) CT Hostess Susa’n says DOH!
(02/01 13:50:57) angelmyst: We are more informed than most small countries…lol
(02/01 13:51:00) CT Hostess Susa’n: Everyone – Please keep donating!
(02/01 13:51:01) Ro”Jethhe: RAWA was incharge of Cavcon wasn’t he?
(02/01 13:51:07) Korov’ev: RAWA used to update it, and he can’t at the moment, for obvious reasons
(02/01 13:51:22) Emor D’ni Lap would like to have a cavern-wide discussion as to how CAVCON can be made more transparent and functional
(02/01 13:51:28) Korov’ev: Our next question is from philipgr.
(02/01 13:51:28) Korov’ev: [philipgr] Where will the MOULa install exe file be kept for new explorers?
(02/01 13:51:38) Handyman Henry: Type in Calendar for URU in Google…works for me
(02/01 13:51:50) Korov’ev: The site will still be up, it’s just the forum that will be closed.

(02/01 13:57:08) Korov’ev: Some time ago, the MYSTAges wiki was put offline; the data has been salvaged, however, and posted on archive.org by Deledrius: https://archive.org/details/wiki-mystwikicom-20190827
(02/01 13:57:19) Korov’ev: Alahmnat is looking into merging some of the lore info from MYSTAges into the Guild of Archivists wiki.
