All Guilds Meeting – June 2020 – Cleansed Chatlog

(06/06 13:00:06)Korov’ev: Shorah, and welcome to the 122nd All Guilds Meeting!

(06/06 13:00:11)Minasunda: shorah Mir :))

(06/06 13:00:18)Korov’ev: In the D’ni calendar today is Leebro 9, 9676, and the time is 9:01:01:14

(06/06 13:00:21)philipgr: Shorah Mir πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:00:40)Korov’ev: If there’s anyone new: welcome to the Cavern! You picked the best time to visit πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:00:47)Korov’ev: As usual, I’ll remind you the 5 Meeting Rules:

(06/06 13:00:53)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.

(06/06 13:00:54)Doobes: AGM time is best time. πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:01:04)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.

(06/06 13:01:14)Korov’ev: 3. Speakers, please indicate when you are done speaking and ready for questions, and when you’re ready for the next question.

(06/06 13:01:21)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.

(06/06 13:01:30)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/

(06/06 13:01:30)AdrianGreen (I’m on the surface, be back in a minute):

(06/06 13:01:39)Korov’ev: Of course, you can start your own chatlog with “/startlog”.

(06/06 13:01:54)Alien yawns at Jan

(06/06 13:02:00)Korov’ev: Let’s start with, can you guess, a music event:

(06/06 13:02:10)Sleeper Jan: Hallo all

(06/06 13:02:12)Korov’ev: Next Monday [15] at 13:00, Nosila will host the music program: Young, Gifted & Black, in Ae’gura Plaza as always!

(06/06 13:02:21)Korov’ev: The stream will be as always at http://mosilaradio.caster.fm

(06/06 13:02:30)Doobes: Sweet!

(06/06 13:02:43)Korov’ev: Of course, next week there will also be… a Cavern Tour!

(06/06 13:02:49)Korov’ev: Let’s hear the details from Susa’n!

(06/06 13:02:58)Alien claps

(06/06 13:03:03)CT Hostess Susa’n waves hello

(06/06 13:03:04)Grandbad claps

(06/06 13:03:21)CT Hostess Susa’n: “Cavern Tours” are a series of walking tours that cover every Age in MOULa.

(06/06 13:03:44)CT Hostess Susa’n: Each tour is held the second Saturday of each month from 11:00 to 13:00 KI time — that’s Mountain Time.

(06/06 13:03:51)CT Hostess Susa’n: The next tour is Saturday, June 13.

(06/06 13:04:05)CT Hostess Susa’n: Please meet us in Cavern Tour’s Hood at 11:00 KI time for a brief orientation.

(06/06 13:04:17)CT Hostess Susa’n: Then we will link together to the Age to be toured …

(06/06 13:04:28)CT Hostess Susa’n: which will be the Island of Ae’gura.

(06/06 13:04:49)CT Hostess Susa’n: Unfortunately, Cavern Tour’s Hood is still borked and does not appear in Public Links in the Nexus.

(06/06 13:04:51)CT Hostess Susa’n says DOH!

(06/06 13:05:23)CT Hostess Susa’n: If you PM me after this speech I will send you an invitation to the Hood so you can access it via Private Links.

(06/06 13:05:55)CT Hostess Susa’n: Our host, Larry LeDeay, used his twitch.tv/LWF58 account to broadcast our voices and to live-stream the tour.

(06/06 13:06:15)CT Hostess Susa’n: And so you will need to open your Internet browser to partcipate in each tour.

(06/06 13:06:32)CT Hostess Susa’n: RAWA’s mother, Darlene, usually joins the tour via twitch.

(06/06 13:06:47)CT Hostess Susa’n: Larry often shows photos and videos you may have never seen!

(06/06 13:07:09)CT Hostess Susa’n: and Mirphak may take us to locations in Ae’gura you may have never seen.

(06/06 13:07:28)CT Hostess Susa’n: Mirphak is with us now; please take a moment to thank him for his help!

(06/06 13:07:42)Boywhith: clap

(06/06 13:07:44)bella1 clap

(06/06 13:07:51)CT Hostess Susa’n: We hope to see you next week!!!!!

(06/06 13:07:52)Mirphak kneels down…

(06/06 13:07:53)Eternal Seeker thanks you very much!

(06/06 13:07:56)CT Hostess Susa’n: Any questions?

(06/06 13:08:01)AdrianGreen: clap

(06/06 13:08:12)CT Hostess Susa’n looks around for a bit

(06/06 13:08:17)Korov’ev: none in queue. any?

(06/06 13:08:22)Doobes: Bueller?

(06/06 13:08:25)Korov’ev: Thank you Susa’n!

(06/06 13:08:27)CT Hostess Susa’n bows

(06/06 13:08:36)Alien laughs at the Bueller joke

(06/06 13:08:38)AdrianGreen: clap

(06/06 13:08:39)bella1: Lol

(06/06 13:08:54)Korov’ev: And now, it’s time for the hot topic of the week.

(06/06 13:09:02)Korov’ev: In light of recent events related to the latest client update, it would be helpful to clarify the open source developers’ side.

(06/06 13:09:12)Korov’ev: With that in mind, let’s hear from the haxxors!

(06/06 13:09:32)AdrianGreen: clap

(06/06 13:09:34)Grandbad claps

(06/06 13:09:58)Doobes: Heh, um…am I a haxxor?

(06/06 13:10:00)Doobes laughs

(06/06 13:10:02)Adam {Hoikas} grumbles, is yanked on stage by a dictator

(06/06 13:10:14)Korov’ev: a Writtor?

(06/06 13:10:20)Doobes: πŸ˜›

(06/06 13:10:27)Alien: A Wry Tour?

(06/06 13:10:43)Sciviz: R!tr

(06/06 13:10:49)Alien is quiet

(06/06 13:11:05)Adam {Hoikas}: ok, so, uh maybe I wasn’t quite prepared to speak, but Korov’ev said thou must speaketh

(06/06 13:11:12)Adam {Hoikas}: so I will speaketh

(06/06 13:11:16)Doobes bows to the will of the Korov’ev

(06/06 13:11:25)Adam {Hoikas} would drop his notes if there were any

(06/06 13:11:34)Briggs starts to laugh

(06/06 13:11:53)Adam {Hoikas}: As you know, there was an update to MOULa in the last week or so that changed some components of the physics.

(06/06 13:12:10)Emor D’ni Lap: badabum

(06/06 13:12:26)Adam {Hoikas}: This was done in response to some issues we saw when getting Doobes’ Age Chiso Preniv onto the Minkata testing server

(06/06 13:12:37)Emor D’ni Lap: EEEEEEK!

(06/06 13:12:41)Doobes cowers

(06/06 13:12:52)Eternal Seeker: emor shut up please

(06/06 13:13:08)Emor D’ni Lap applauds

(06/06 13:13:32)Adam {Hoikas}: Recently, Korov’ev pointed out that there were some rumors that these updates had broken the “bots”

(06/06 13:13:58)Adam {Hoikas}: I don’t use them personally, but from what I can gather, certain skydiving jumps are more difficult now. Is that correct?

(06/06 13:14:26)Boywhith: every skydiving jump is difficult for me…

(06/06 13:14:29)Doobes: To be fair, that’s not the fault of the bots themselves.

(06/06 13:14:36)Adam {Hoikas} hopes he understands correctly

(06/06 13:15:02)Doobes: Our goal is to clear up any misconceptions the community may have.

(06/06 13:15:05)CT Hostess Susa’n: skydiving has been difficult since we lost the Skydiving client

(06/06 13:15:20)Doobes: To be fair, it’s not “lost”…just woefully out of date.

(06/06 13:15:23)Adam {Hoikas}: that was before this most recent update though, correct?

(06/06 13:15:30)CT Hostess Susa’n: yes

(06/06 13:15:33)Adam {Hoikas}: ok

(06/06 13:15:50)Adam {Hoikas}: like I say, I don’t do much in terms of marker games and bot stuff

(06/06 13:16:04)Doobes is terrible at such games πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:16:10)Adam {Hoikas}: but what I know for a fact is that none of the work we do is intended to break these things

(06/06 13:16:28)Thumbs up from Minasunda

(06/06 13:16:41)Doobes: The thing you guys need to remember with coding is that it’s not perfect. One thing gets fixed and it breaks another.

(06/06 13:16:42)Adam {Hoikas}: all of the work on the game happens in the clear. The main new feature/fix development happens on the GoW IRC and on GitHub

(06/06 13:17:06)Adam {Hoikas}: The process of updating the MOULa client’s physics happened on the OpenURU discord.

(06/06 13:17:15)Adam {Hoikas}: I am sure Korov’ev will be glad to provide links πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:17:39)Adam {Hoikas}: During that time, we did not receive any input from the SkyDiving community that I am aware of

(06/06 13:17:50)Doobes: I highly encourage you guys to join the OU discord as it’s a nice window into what is going on as well as the best place to find out if there’s changes brewing.

(06/06 13:18:01)Adam {Hoikas}: The changes to the physics that came last week have been available on Gehn Shard for the last 6 years.

(06/06 13:18:29)Adam {Hoikas}: So, I was a little shocked to discover that something had broken to the point that we had someone threatening to shut down his bots and leave.

(06/06 13:18:54)CT Hostess Susa’n: (not MIrphak)

(06/06 13:19:16)Adam {Hoikas}: In other words, if you are creating content for the game, we need for you to be an active participant in at least the discussion on how development moves forward.

(06/06 13:19:26)Sleeper Jan: threatening is a bit too much to say, maybe

(06/06 13:19:29)Adam {Hoikas}: I regularly read the OU discord.

(06/06 13:19:57)Doobes: We do not want to disregard the Skydiver community outright. It’s why Lyrositor originally created their special client in the first place.

(06/06 13:19:59)Adam {Hoikas}: Not the Cyan discord though, due to personal issues with the moderation staff. Maybe I will try again now that ownership has changed hands πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:20:07)Zeke365 reads ou discord

(06/06 13:20:14)Adam {Hoikas}: Anyway, that’s all I can think of – Korov’ev did we miss anything?

(06/06 13:20:29)Adam {Hoikas} <3 tab name completion

(06/06 13:20:38)Korov’ev: I think so. any questions?

(06/06 13:20:44)Doobes: The key thing to remember here is that we don’t work in a vacuum. Our programmer friends DO listen. I can personally vouch for that.

(06/06 13:20:54)Korov’ev: Our next question is from Sciviz.

(06/06 13:20:54)Korov’ev: [Sciviz] What is the GOW IRC channel? is it on freenode?

(06/06 13:20:56)Thumbs up from CT Hostess Susa’n

(06/06 13:21:10)Adam {Hoikas}: We’re on irc.guildofwriters.org channel #writers

(06/06 13:21:22)Adam {Hoikas}: next?

(06/06 13:21:43)Korov’ev: thank you, guys!

(06/06 13:21:45)Mabe: there’s only one thing to say… thank you very much for the work, for every improvement, for the effort and time, thank you !!

(06/06 13:22:00)Adam {Hoikas}: You’re welcome – and I do apologize for any confusion

(06/06 13:22:06)Adam {Hoikas} exit stage left

(06/06 13:22:10)Korov’ev: a quick one:

(06/06 13:22:14)Korov’ev: Our next question is from Alien.

(06/06 13:22:14)Korov’ev: [Alien] Is PhysX affected? IIs this anything to do with PhysX? I haven’t had to update PhysX but I know someone who had to

(06/06 13:22:16)AdrianGreen: clap

(06/06 13:22:26)Emor D’ni Lap thanks the H’uru guys for their vast investment of time over the years

(06/06 13:22:30)Korov’ev: Doobes, wait πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:22:33)Doobes looks to Hoikas

(06/06 13:22:57)Adam {Hoikas}: Uru is in a bad situation with PhysX. MOUL was using version 2.6.0, which is so old that the NVIDIA graphics driver will sometimes uninstall it.

(06/06 13:23:01)Doobes: A good slogan: “Don’t get mad…get talking!”

(06/06 13:23:24)CT Hostess Susa’n had to install latest PhysX with update #159

(06/06 13:23:26)Adam {Hoikas}: We are now at 2.6.4, which is still entirely too old. The most recent version (4.0? 4.1?) doesn’t even have to be installed.

(06/06 13:23:41)Adam {Hoikas}: 5.0 is supposed to come out sometime this year

(06/06 13:23:54)Alien thanks Adam

(06/06 13:23:57)Adam {Hoikas}: YW

(06/06 13:23:57)Korov’ev: On the fan Ages front…

(06/06 13:24:10)Korov’ev: Let’s welcome Doobes, again! πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:24:22)Doobes: Hiiiii! Me again. πŸ˜›

(06/06 13:24:23)AdrianGreen: clap

(06/06 13:24:24)Doobes waves hello

(06/06 13:24:36)Doobes: Shorah, my fellow explorers!

(06/06 13:24:45)Doobes: I hope you’re all doing well despite all that’s going on on the surface world.

(06/06 13:24:57)Doobes: Even living with drama both global and personal, I’m still hard at work on content for this very game you’re playing.

(06/06 13:25:08)Doobes: I’ve continued to work with rarified and OpenURU to get my three released Ages ready for Minkata prime, where the heavy testing will begin.

(06/06 13:25:10)Thumbs up from CT Hostess Susa’n

(06/06 13:25:13)Doobes nods to rarified

(06/06 13:25:29)rarified knods back.

(06/06 13:25:32)Doobes: After that, once Cyan is ready to go, we take things to the staging server for some quick checks and testing…

(06/06 13:25:43)Doobes: …then you’ll see some big changes here for the first time in nearly 12 years!

(06/06 13:25:59)Doobes: After a bit of a break from Age building after the big Age releases a couple of months ago (aside from a small but deeply personal addition to Veelay Tsahvahn on Gehn Shard), I’m ready to get back to work.

(06/06 13:26:00)Boywhith: wow!

(06/06 13:26:20)Doobes: In fact…I’ve been developing a brand new Age that promises to be quite exciting…if I can pull it off. πŸ˜›

(06/06 13:26:32)Doobes: So pretty much all of us know about the Gahreesen wall, right? Or at least what it should be doing were it not in need of some serious clean up in the code.

(06/06 13:26:47)bella1 is all ears

(06/06 13:26:49)Doobes: Well, I’ve begun to create a brand new Age that takes that concept to a new place!

(06/06 13:26:50)Grandbad nods his head

(06/06 13:26:54)Alien rubs her nose

(06/06 13:27:01)Doobes: So yes, for the first time, I’ll be creating a game Age.

(06/06 13:27:14)Doobes: Instead of a wall, however, it will be a circular maze that can be changed and run by one to four players or teams. No more climbing and possibly falling…at least in its current iteration.

(06/06 13:27:30)Doobes: Much like the wall, each person/team will get a set number of barriers to activate within the maze to try and trip up the other players.

(06/06 13:27:44)TikiBear is intrigued

(06/06 13:27:44)Doobes: This means the maze will potentially be different each time; no memorizing the route. πŸ˜‰

(06/06 13:27:57)Grandbad laughs

(06/06 13:28:00)Doobes: The blockers can be placed anywhere within the entire maze. You can either set these manually or choose to randomize them. The latter will be helpful for single players wanting a challenge.

(06/06 13:28:02)Claidi Song: Like doors runs, then?

(06/06 13:28:26)Doobes: Once the maze is set, players will get to run the maze until they reach the center. There, they will signal (in some way TBD) that they’ve reached the goal and that player/team will win.

(06/06 13:28:34)Doobes: In a way, Cladi, although more competitive.

(06/06 13:28:44)Claidi Song nods her head

(06/06 13:28:50)Doobes: Unlike the wall, you will have a chance to remove those aforementioned blockers and possibly give yourself an edge. There will be a control panel beside each blocker.

(06/06 13:29:05)Doobes: It will be a one-in-four chance, and you only get one shot, so it’s up to the player if they want to take a moment to try and lower the blocker (which may not even offer an advantage) or leave it and continue on.

(06/06 13:29:20)bella1: Oooooooooh

(06/06 13:29:23)Doobes: A timer, counting up or down, can also be chosen for an extra challenge.

(06/06 13:29:29)Adam {Hoikas}: spoilers!

(06/06 13:29:34)Alien is intrigued

(06/06 13:29:40)Doobes: Again, this is mostly in the planning and building stages so far, and some details need to be ironed out, but I’m hoping this will encourage friendly (or maybe even fierce) competition amongst ourselves…and provide a new bit of fun.

(06/06 13:29:52)Adam {Hoikas}: I can already see uses for py3 πŸ˜‰

(06/06 13:29:57)Doobes: I don’t have an exact time-table for the Age’s completion, but I’m hoping to have it ready to go sometime this year for a release on Gehn Shard and Deep Island initially.

(06/06 13:30:01)Emor D’ni Lap: Name That Age!

(06/06 13:30:02)Boywhith: And not to forget… aggressive Bahro’s!

(06/06 13:30:20)Doobes: I’ll also need to discuss the details with my more Python-literate friends too. This Age will require a weeee bit of coding. πŸ˜€

(06/06 13:30:26)Doobes nods to Hoikas πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:30:36)Adam {Hoikas} gives a long-suffering sigh

(06/06 13:30:39)Alien cowers in fear at aggresive Bahro … when you get the tablet, do not give it to me

(06/06 13:30:49)Doobes: As for my other Ages, nothing too big on the horizon at the moment. I think my next release will be Kotsahvosahn, aka the Waystation. That will be the beginning of the journey of D’ni citizen and Messenger Lothias, so it will be more story-heavy than my previous Ages.

(06/06 13:30:52)Korov’ev: sneezing bahro?

(06/06 13:31:16)Doobes sneezes

(06/06 13:31:19)Doobes: πŸ˜‰

(06/06 13:31:23)Doobes: I’ve also begun a new project with my old friend AgeExplorer, which promises to also be quite story *and* puzzle-heavy! Since he’s doing the heavy lifting on the conceptual, I’ve been finding it easier to do just building on the project.

(06/06 13:31:25)Korov’ev cowers

(06/06 13:31:44)Doobes: Age is a professional filmmaker…so he’s also one heck of a storyteller. πŸ˜‰

(06/06 13:31:57)Doobes: In any case, that’s also still in the planning stages, so more on that at a later date.

(06/06 13:32:07)Doobes: And that’s it from me today. Look for more substantial updates in the coming weeks.

(06/06 13:32:17)Doobes: You can follow my work on Facebook at www.facebook.com/agesofdoobes or on my website, agesofdoobes.wordpress.com.

(06/06 13:32:19)AdrianGreen: clap

(06/06 13:32:21)bella1 claps

(06/06 13:32:27)Doobes: Questions?

(06/06 13:32:29)Korov’ev: Our next question is from Theo.

(06/06 13:32:29)Korov’ev: [Theo] Will it be possible to save mazes, like saving pillar configurations in Jalak?

(06/06 13:32:39)Zeke365 knows why he likes this game it because it like flimaking

(06/06 13:32:54)Doobes: That’s actually a good idea I didn’t think about. I’ll consider it. Don’t want to give anyone too much of an edge. πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:33:06)Doobes: Any other questions?

(06/06 13:33:15)Korov’ev: none in queue.

(06/06 13:33:24)Doobes: Then I take my leave. πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:33:25)Doobes bows

(06/06 13:33:26)Briggs: Exciting stuff!

(06/06 13:33:36)Briggs: oh no I’ve been standing this whole time I’m sorry

(06/06 13:33:38)Emor D’ni Lap applauds Doobes

(06/06 13:33:42)Korov’ev: but it may be woth mentioning the Python 3 thing, now that it was mentioned

(06/06 13:34:02)Doobes: All I know is the new client using it works. πŸ˜€

(06/06 13:34:04)Korov’ev: thank you Doobes!

(06/06 13:34:32)Korov’ev: currently the client uses Python 2.3, which is waaaaay old….

(06/06 13:34:46)Adam {Hoikas}: released pre-2005

(06/06 13:34:47)Doobes: Darn near ancient in tech terms. πŸ˜€

(06/06 13:34:55)Korov’ev: so our haxxor friends are updating it to the latest

(06/06 13:35:33)Korov’ev: bot developers will likely need to check their code, when it will arrive

(06/06 13:35:53)Korov’ev: Now, speaking of fan Ages…

(06/06 13:36:04)Korov’ev: the usual update on the Fan Age Touring Club, on Deep Island πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:36:04)Mirphak: It will be a hard job, but I accept it πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:36:17)bella1: Yay mir

(06/06 13:36:32)Claidi Song thanks Mirphak

(06/06 13:36:38)Korov’ev: Recently we visited most of the Geologica series, by Ametist & Metabasalt, starting in Dragon’s Tooth.

(06/06 13:36:50)Korov’ev: Tomorrow we’ll link to the last Ages in the series, but also Tyndior by Trylon, and Botan by Ametist.

(06/06 13:37:03)Korov’ev: In the following weeks, we’ll visit… Enobmort and Noidrocca by J’Kla, and Sonavio by Boblishman!

(06/06 13:37:13)Korov’ev: The expeditions are at 11:00 KIT, in the shard Hood (you can get there quickly with “/hood”).

(06/06 13:37:26)Korov’ev: We often overlap with the start of Radio Free D’ni programs, so make sure to have the streaming ready!

(06/06 13:37:37)Korov’ev: There’s also a (mute) stream: https://www.twitch.tv/korovvannoort

(06/06 13:37:37)Doobes: Tour and tunes!

(06/06 13:37:58)Korov’ev: hmm, I might steal that slogan πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:38:05)Doobes: It’s all yours. πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:38:08)Korov’ev: After the tour, at 14:00 KIT, it will be a good time for Door Runs on Minkata, Gehn or TOC, on rotation.

(06/06 13:38:28)Korov’ev: And speaking of fan productions:

(06/06 13:38:36)Korov’ev: Episode 10 of The Lost Art machinima, by Mystitech Productions, was released on Saturday 30!

(06/06 13:38:43)Korov’ev: https://youtu.be/95gHxTeQLW8

(06/06 13:39:55)Korov’ev: I’m receiving questions about the physics. At this point, you’ll get better answers by asking the techs πŸ˜‰

(06/06 13:40:16)Korov’ev: Time for some quick Cyan news:

(06/06 13:40:18)Doobes: OU Discord!

(06/06 13:40:36)Korov’ev: or that, for longer questions

(06/06 13:40:40)Adam {Hoikas}: I’ll hang around for a few minutes afterwards (though I need to refresh my toxic waste–uh coffee)

(06/06 13:40:45)Korov’ev: realMyst: Masterpiece Edition has been released on Thursday 21 for the Nintendo Switch.

(06/06 13:40:53)Korov’ev: After more than three months, a new update was posted in Thursday about Firmament.

(06/06 13:40:58)Korov’ev: Among other news, it mentioned the need to improve on the gameplay and setting aspects of the game,

(06/06 13:41:09)Korov’ev: and the official hiring of a member of the Starry Expanse team.

(06/06 13:41:18)Alien is still waiting to play Firmament

(06/06 13:41:28)Korov’ev: May ended with a CavFunding of 90% (Cavcon 1.9), a population of 35,052 explorers, and 1441 unique visits.

(06/06 13:41:37)Korov’ev: The reserve covered 29% and is now empty. The server costs were the same as last month.

(06/06 13:42:10)Korov’ev: Time for CavCon parties, hmm? πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:42:19)Doobes: I’m up for one. πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:42:26)Korov’ev: Some quick news from Mysterium 2020:

(06/06 13:42:31)Korov’ev: The convention will be held virtually, with a combination of Twitch and Zoom for presentations, and Discord for live chatting.

(06/06 13:42:35)Zeke365: get a laggy party going down for the Cavcon

(06/06 13:42:43)Korov’ev: The convention dates will be the same as planned, August 7-9, with a possible extended weekend.

(06/06 13:42:54)Korov’ev: Refunds will be available, but roll-overs to next year’s in-person convention will too.

(06/06 13:43:00)Korov’ev: Location bids have been opened for editions of the convention outside the official one.

(06/06 13:43:13)Korov’ev: The bids will be handled a bit differently, and accepted year-round. For 2022, that means bids will be due by April 1, 2021.

(06/06 13:43:22)Korov’ev: The deadline for event submissions has been extended to June 30, with the option to submit pre-recorded presentations.

(06/06 13:43:24)Alien: April Fools Day

(06/06 13:43:46)Korov’ev: totally unintentional. I think πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:44:00)Korov’ev: The deadline for the Digital Activity Book is also extended to June 30.

(06/06 13:44:09)Korov’ev: The existing T-shirt design will be used for Mysterium 2021, with altered dates. A store page will be opened soon.

(06/06 13:44:26)Zeke365 needs to get work on his projects to much youtube, facebook distractions

(06/06 13:44:30)Korov’ev: the ‘slashed’ design you might have heard about

(06/06 13:44:42)Korov’ev: The 2020 pin designs will also be rolled over into 2021.

(06/06 13:44:59)Korov’ev: And now, the usual update from r’Tayrtahn, aka Shokhootahn Rehn!

(06/06 13:45:10)AdrianGreen: clap

(06/06 13:45:18)Emor D’ni Lap applauds Rehn

(06/06 13:45:26)shokhootahn Rehn bows

(06/06 13:45:48)shokhootahn Rehn: I have two separate announcements. One is for the D’ni Language Class and the other one is for r’Tayrtahn’s Story Night.

(06/06 13:46:03)shokhootahn Rehn: First, the language classes…

(06/06 13:46:21)shokhootahn Rehn: I am still putting things away and finding forever homes for everything after my recent move. As a result, I am reluctant to add daytime classes until further notice. They *should* be able to return sometime in the fall. If someone needs a daytime slot, contact me and we will work something out. Night time classes, however, are unaffected.

(06/06 13:46:58)shokhootahn Rehn: There are evening classes avaible on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday nights, starting at either 20:00 KI time or 21:00 KI time, depending on the student’s schedule. Contact me by PM to set up a day and a time.

(06/06 13:47:30)shokhootahn Rehn: As always, current students can find last-minute updates to class times on the left-hand imager.

(06/06 13:47:47)shokhootahn Rehn: Now for some exciting news…

(06/06 13:48:06)shokhootahn Rehn: Another student has started taking the classes and has just finished the 3rd lesson.

(06/06 13:48:22)shokhootahn Rehn: Last time, I announced that there were three students taking the classes: one set to take lesson 4, one for lesson 6, and one working on thier final exam.

(06/06 13:48:26)Doobes: AP D’ni. πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:48:44)shokhootahn Rehn: The first two students are now both working on lesson 6.

(06/06 13:49:20)shokhootahn Rehn: Many of you have met aqua. She was the one working on their final. I am pleased to announce that aqua has completed her final exam and passed the D’ni 101 class. Please giver her a round of applause!

(06/06 13:49:35)Alien congrats Aqua

(06/06 13:49:37)Emor D’ni Lap: Hooray Aqua!

(06/06 13:50:13)AdrianGreen: clap

(06/06 13:50:16)shokhootahn Rehn: Now, back to the mundane announcements…

(06/06 13:50:24)shokhootahn Rehn: The Guild of Instructors’ Hood will be open and public unless a class is in session. I will announce the availability of daytime classes here and on the Hood imager when they are ready to resume.

(06/06 13:50:50)shokhootahn Rehn: Are there any questions? Typing is slow on this PC so please be patient for my response. πŸ™‚

(06/06 13:51:11)Korov’ev: heh

(06/06 13:51:15)Korov’ev: none in queue

(06/06 13:51:39)shokhootahn Rehn: Moving on…

(06/06 13:51:53)shokhootahn Rehn: The second announcement is about r’Taytahn’s Story Night.

(06/06 13:52:13)shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night – Europe is now at the same stage of the history as is original Story Night.

(06/06 13:52:37)shokhootahn Rehn: We are continuing with the story arc of the D’ni kings. Today, and for the next four weeks we will hear the last of the stories of the kings, ending with King Kerath.

(06/06 13:53:05)shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night is held in the public neighborhood of Tsahno’s Hood every Saturday.

(06/06 13:53:25)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.

(06/06 13:53:42)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.

(06/06 13:54:16)shokhootahn Rehn: I also post changes on the left-hand imager in the hood.

(06/06 13:54:34)shokhootahn Rehn: Due to the pandemic, I will not be traveling, much, for the foreseeable future. As a result, times for both Story Nights will be unaffected by 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™‚

(06/06 13:55:23)shokhootahn Rehn: The stories are told using voice so you will need to have your speakers or headsets on.

(06/06 13:55:42)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.

(06/06 13:56:27)shokhootahn Rehn: YOU *MUST* INCLUDE YOUR KI NUMBER IN THE BODY OF THE MAIL TO BE ADDED!

(06/06 13:56:49)Grandbad covers ears.

(06/06 13:57:02)shokhootahn Rehn: (not shouting, just emphasizing)

(06/06 13:57:09)Doobes: Capitalized for importance.

(06/06 13:57:19)shokhootahn Rehn: Yr

(06/06 13:57:19)Grandbad understands

(06/06 13:57:22)shokhootahn Rehn: Yes

(06/06 13:57:43)shokhootahn Rehn: Some have sent messages to be added but have not included their KI number so they were unable to be added.

(06/06 13:57:44)Korov’ev: it still happens?

(06/06 13:58:08)Doobes: Think of your KI number like your phone number. If you don’t give it, they can’t respond.

(06/06 13:58:38)Doobes: (er, think before cellphones or caller ID πŸ˜› )

(06/06 13:58:38)shokhootahn Rehn: Not often Kor but it does happen from time to time

(06/06 13:59:10)shokhootahn Rehn: Good analogt, Doobes!

(06/06 13:59:21)CT Hostess Susa’n thought Ki mails show up in Recent

(06/06 13:59:51)shokhootahn Rehn: Unfortunately no, Susa’n

(06/06 13:59:59)CT Hostess Susa’n: πŸ™

(06/06 14:00:03)shokhootahn Rehn: *analogy

(06/06 14:00:19)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.

(06/06 14:00:39)shokhootahn Rehn: We hope to see you there!

(06/06 14:00:42)shokhootahn Rehn: Any questions? Aain, typing is slow on this PC so please be patient for my response. πŸ™‚

(06/06 14:00:48)Korov’ev: Our next question is from Doobes.

(06/06 14:00:48)Korov’ev: [Doobes] Have you considered giving Gehn Shard a try for Story Night one of these nights? The voice chat was recently upgraded. πŸ™‚

(06/06 14:01:41)Minasunda: yep the voice chat in Gehn Shard is exellent

(06/06 14:01:57)CT Hostess Susa’n wishes voice chat would be upgraded here, too

(06/06 14:02:23)Doobes: Eventually, Susa’n. Just need to push that and other fixes through Minkata first. πŸ˜‰

(06/06 14:02:26)shokhootahn Rehn: I hadn’t thought about it but I have taken teps to ue Gehn a an alternate venue should the need arise.

(06/06 14:02:47)Doobes: I wouldn’t suggest a permanent change of venue…just a one-off really.

(06/06 14:02:51)shokhootahn Rehn: *steps

(06/06 14:03:42)Korov’ev: the story of the Fall, in Fehnir

(06/06 14:03:43)Korov’ev: 1

(06/06 14:04:16)shokhootahn Rehn: I might do a special night in a certain memorial Age…. date to be determined.

(06/06 14:04:31)Doobes: πŸ˜€

(06/06 14:04:56)shokhootahn Rehn: Any more questions?

(06/06 14:05:05)Korov’ev: none in queue

(06/06 14:05:09)Korov’ev: Thank you, Rehn!

(06/06 14:05:13)shokhootahn Rehn thanks you very much!
