(09/07 13:00:42) Eternal Seeker says hey
(09/07 13:00:48) Korov’ev: In the D’ni calendar today is Leetahr 24, 9675, and the time is 15:01:00
(09/07 13:01:04) Korov’ev: If there’s anyone new: welcome to the Cavern!
(09/07 13:01:10) Korov’ev: As usual, I’ll remind you the 5 Meeting Rules:
(09/07 13:01:15) 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.
(09/07 13:01:20) 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.
(09/07 13:01:32) Korov’ev: 3. Speakers, please indicate when you are done speaking and ready for questions, and when you’re ready for the next question.
(09/07 13:01:40) 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.
(09/07 13:01:54) Korov’ev: 5. A summary and a chatlog of the Meeting will be published in the next few days on the Guild of Messengers’ site:
(09/07 13:02:02) Korov’ev: Of course, you can start your own chatlog with “/startlog”.

(09/07 13:05:03) ChrisKB: It’s great to behere.
(09/07 13:05:32) ChrisKB: Attaboy couldn’t be here today and just wanted me to send a message to you all, and everyone else here in the community.
(09/07 13:06:23) ChrisKB: He knows that in the past that he tried resurrecting the Cavern Events hood but real life just got too busy at the time.
(09/07 13:06:56) ChrisKB: However, he attended Mysterium recently, and it made him want to contribute to this community more.
(09/07 13:08:08) ChrisKB: Also, with Magic Bot onnly being available by request now, he figured that the Cavern Events hood would be a nice way to get announcements to other explorers in the cavern by using the imager in the hood.
(09/07 13:08:48) ChrisKB: Furthermore, he has a team this time which currently consists of Narotiza and myself, both of which be met at Mysterium.
(09/07 13:09:47) ChrisKB: …as an aside, I actually did meet him, and the whole event was awesome. It also made me want to participate more in the cavern here also…
(09/07 13:10:55) ChrisKB: We will try to host more parties as well, starting with the Reopening Party on 12th October starting at 14:00 KI time. If anybody wishes to stream music at that time, you are more than welcome to.
(09/07 13:12:09) ChrisKB: If you have any inquiries regarding the hood, or events you’d like him to add, send him a KI mail under his avvie attaboyrish, KI: 7903211
(09/07 13:12:47) ChrisKB: Also with permission from certain people, he’d like to get the Cavern Tours back up again. (Long term plans)
(09/07 13:13:09) ChrisKB: Any questions, just send Attaboyrish a KI mail.
(09/07 13:14:03) Heather can’t wait for the cavern tours again
(09/07 13:14:09) Claidi Song claps her hands
(09/07 13:14:19) ChrisKB: …I myself would also be able to receive messages at my KI as well. My ID is: 08921257 I’ll make sure to read them, plus forward the message to Attaboy and the rest of the team.
(09/07 13:14:42) ChrisKB: And that about covers it. Thanks for listening!
(09/07 13:14:46) Thumbs up from ChrisKB

(09/07 13:15:19) Korov’ev claps his hands
(09/07 13:15:19) Korov’ev: let’s welcome rarified!
(09/07 13:15:22) Tai’lahr claps her hands

(09/07 13:15:57) thoekenem claps his hands
(09/07 13:16:07) rarified: Today, I have something a little different in store for you.
(09/07 13:16:34) rarified: I’m not going to talk about specific technical progress, but rather about Minkata itself.
(09/07 13:17:09) rarified: There has been a resurgence of postings on the OpenUru forums expressing concerns about things getting done
(09/07 13:17:27) rarified: on the Minkata shard. Many of these concerns I agree with.
(09/07 13:17:56) rarified: Much of the problem with getting things through the testing process on Minkata is time and
(09/07 13:18:16) rarified: ability to work on sometimes many things at once.
(09/07 13:18:48) rarified: I’d like to get a feel about hosting an in game gathering entitled “What can you offer for Minkata?”
(09/07 13:19:20) rarified: I’d like to find out who has and is willing to spend time on the operation, process, and even
(09/07 13:19:31) rarified: management of the Minkata shard.
(09/07 13:19:49) rarified: I’m not asking about people with specific skills at this meeting, I would just like to
(09/07 13:20:11) rarified: find out if there are others willing to pitch in, somehow. And what they can offer as skills.
(09/07 13:20:22) rarified: Does that sound interesting to you?
(09/07 13:20:38) Thumbs up from Christian Walther
(09/07 13:20:45) rarified: I’m going to echo this request in the MOULa forums, but though an in person offer would be
(09/07 13:20:49) rarified: the way to start things off.
(09/07 13:21:12) rarified: Thoughts? (Apologies to Kor for taking time for back and forth)
(09/07 13:21:29) radioflux: Great idea
(09/07 13:21:29) Theo thinks it sounds great to him.
(09/07 13:21:30) PodHopper: pick a date and place?
(09/07 13:21:54) rarified: That would be the next step. I assume it would only be polite to cover as many time zones
(09/07 13:22:01) rarified: for people interested as possible.
(09/07 13:22:12) PodHopper: good point
(09/07 13:22:23) Thumbs up from Mirphak
(09/07 13:22:45) rarified: And I’d publish the chatlog on the OU forums to continue the discussion or perhaps another real time meeting.
(09/07 13:23:27) rarified: Well, ruminate on the proposal. Look for my posting on (I expect) the events forum.
(09/07 13:23:35) rarified: (on MOUL)
(09/07 13:23:46) rarified: Any questions at this early a stage?
(09/07 13:23:55) Korov’ev: Also on the Discord server, I suppose?
(09/07 13:24:11) rarified: Yes, I could post something there as well.
(09/07 13:24:30) Heather: Ruminate…eat grass lol
(09/07 13:24:31) rarified: Although on Discord it might be hard to keep the discussion focused.
(09/07 13:25:00) Korov’ev: Our next question is from Theo.
(09/07 13:25:00) Korov’ev: [Theo] And a Hood Imager or two?
(09/07 13:25:09) rarified: Ok. I continue to work on behind the curtain coding for Minkata, but can’t give a date for a big announcement right now.
(09/07 13:25:34) Korov’ev: so keep an eye on public forums!
(09/07 13:25:35) rarified: There is an OpenUru hood, I’ll see about posting something there. If there are more visible/common
(09/07 13:25:50) rarified: neighborhood for posting, let me know and who administers it.
(09/07 13:25:53) rarified: Thank You.
(09/07 13:25:57) rarified bows
(09/07 13:26:02) Heather claps her hands

(09/07 13:26:08) etelka claps her hands
(09/07 13:26:08) Christian Walther: Please consider working in front of the curtain :))
(09/07 13:26:08) Mirphak claps his hands
(09/07 13:26:08) Heather ruminates
(09/07 13:26:09) Claidi Song claps her hands

(09/07 13:26:13) Christian Walther claps his hands

(09/07 13:26:20) Eternal Seeker claps his hands
(09/07 13:26:27) Theo cheers
(09/07 13:26:47) Korov’ev overshot the podium…
(09/07 13:26:53) rarified: Heh
(09/07 13:26:53) radioflux: Do pay attention to the man in front of the curtain
(09/07 13:27:01) Korov’ev: Time for a little wrap up from the biggest MYSTERIUM ever held, with (at least) 230 attendees…
(09/07 13:27:08) Susa’n is amazed!
(09/07 13:27:10) Korov’ev: It’s been over a month, but still feels like yesterday, doesn’t it?
(09/07 13:27:16) ChrisKB: yes
(09/07 13:27:24) Korov’ev: First, the Committee would like you to take a survey, so they can figure out how to make the convention even grander next time:
(09/07 13:27:30) Korov’ev:
(09/07 13:27:46) Korov’ev: (or wait for the link in the chatlog 🙂
(09/07 13:27:58) Korov’ev: You should take the survey even if you couldn’t go, as there’s a whole section about future Mysteria, including in which parts of the U.S. it should be held.
(09/07 13:28:08) Susa’n: So Cal! 😉
(09/07 13:28:22) Heather: so OH
(09/07 13:28:22) Korov’ev: Second, the coloring books were such a hit, they are now available through a print-on-demand service for $10!
(09/07 13:28:30) Korov’ev:—a-myst-themed-coloring-book/11c98cdc-45a4-426f-ae58-f9ffe7bdad78
(09/07 13:28:42) Korov’ev: It is the same service used to print the originals, so you’ll get the same high quality.
(09/07 13:28:45) Heather: i got one
(09/07 13:29:21) Korov’ev: Our next question is from Theo.
(09/07 13:29:22) Korov’ev: [Theo] How will it ever be bigger if it isn’t in Spokane?
(09/07 13:29:35) Heather: So OH
(09/07 13:29:41) Korov’ev: 2023 is Myst 30th anniversary 😉
(09/07 13:30:09) Korov’ev: Third, if you wrote lyrics for Mysterium’s Open Mic Night, and would like to share with the community, you can send them to The plan is to host them in a public Google Drive folder.
(09/07 13:30:31) Korov’ev: Fourth, a central place for photos and videos is hard to find, because many of the older photo-sharing sites have shut down or require payment. Currently there are three options:
(09/07 13:30:42) Korov’ev: a shared Google Photos album, which requires you to have a Google account, but if you do it’s the simplest option:
(09/07 13:30:50) Korov’ev: a Dropbox folder, if you prefer to just send them directly; be aware that it may not be possible to credit you on your photos if you submit them this way:
(09/07 13:31:19) Korov’ev: (the folder is drop only, the photos will be added to the Google album)
(09/07 13:31:20) Korov’ev: f
(09/07 13:31:24) Korov’ev: if you’ve already uploaded your photos elsewhere, you can send the Committee a link to the album (make sure it’s set as public), which will be included a list of external albums on the website:
(09/07 13:31:41) Korov’ev: As for the panel video footage from Twitch, it will be edited and uploaded over the next weeks.
(09/07 13:31:57) Korov’ev: Fifth — Gehn be praised!
(09/07 13:32:03) Korov’ev flinches
(09/07 13:32:04) Korov’ev: oops
(09/07 13:32:16) rarified raises an eyebrow
(09/07 13:32:19) Korov’ev: Fifth, the location for Mysterium 2020 is still undecided; there is a shortlist, and the Committee expects to have it nailed down by mid-to-late September.
(09/07 13:32:32) Claidi Song is puzzled
(09/07 13:32:32) Heather lost an eyebrow
(09/07 13:32:46) Korov’ev: The dates for next year’s convention will be held sometime in late July/early August, but not necessarily the usual first weekend.
(09/07 13:32:55) Korov’ev: The reason is that for each of the past few years the locations were unexpectedly filled by some other event;
(09/07 13:33:03) Korov’ev: this drastically reduces the options for hotels and makes it much harder to find a hotel in a convenient location for a reasonable price.
(09/07 13:33:09) Korov’ev: “If you could do the weekend before/after, we would have space/could give you a better rate”, they say.
(09/07 13:33:17) Korov’ev: So for next year, the Committee opted to be a little more flexible with the dates.
(09/07 13:33:42) Korov’ev: Back to the Cavern, this week we had not one but two events!
(09/07 13:33:52) Korov’ev: (both of which I managed to miss – ahem)
(09/07 13:34:02) Korov’ev: on Tuesday, we had the Day of Dancing celebration hosted by Ghaelen d’Lareh, with special effects from Yoda and Mirphak [];
(09/07 13:34:15) Korov’ev: on Thursday we had the inauguration of the latest adventure from Mister Magics: the Skydiving Hight School [],
(09/07 13:34:27) Korov’ev: which you can start by PM “registration” to Magic Skydiver, KI# 8848659.
(09/07 13:34:44) Korov’ev: This month being September, you might want to keep your agenda free for some upcoming celebrations!
(09/07 13:34:48) Heather: What is hight schoool?
(09/07 13:35:04) Korov’ev: *High
(09/07 13:35:21) rarified: Distorted screen
(09/07 13:35:37) Heather: Height?
(09/07 13:35:47) Korov’ev shrugs
(09/07 13:35:47) Korov’ev: And with that, it’s time to wrap up this Meeting!
