(09/07 13:00:25)Korov’ev: Alright!

(09/07 13:00:30)Relentless: Shorah Mina

(09/07 13:00:31)Christian Walther: Shorah Minasunda and all

(09/07 13:00:35)PodHopper: shorah 😉

(09/07 13:00:38)Korov’ev: Shorah, and welcome to the 113th All Guilds Meeting!

(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 13:02:18)Korov’ev: Let’s start with the announcement of a reopening,

(09/07 13:02:25)Korov’ev: brought to you by: ChrisKB!

(09/07 13:02:50)ChrisKB waves hello

(09/07 13:03:02)Heather waves back

(09/07 13:03:03)Claidi Song waves hello

(09/07 13:03:19)ChrisKB: Just a moment, everyone…

(09/07 13:04:08)Korov’ev: Mike check, mike check

(09/07 13:04:13)Heather twiddles her thumbs

(09/07 13:04:27)Claidi Song crochets a little faster

(09/07 13:04:37)ChrisKB: Dang, first time. Sorry.

(09/07 13:04:46)Korov’ev: heh

(09/07 13:04:48)ChrisKB: Shorah, fellow explorers.

(09/07 13:05:00)Heather: Shorah

(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 13:14:19)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 13:14:47)Korov’ev: Thank you ChrisKB!

(09/07 13:14:51)ChrisKB thanks you very much!

(09/07 13:15:14)Korov’ev: And now, it’s time for an update from the Minkata shard:

(09/07 13:15:19)Korov’ev: let’s welcome rarified!

(09/07 13:15:44)rarified: Shorah (again) all! 😉

(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 13:26:06)Korov’ev: Thank you rarified!

(09/07 13:26:08)Christian Walther: Please consider working in front of the curtain :))

(09/07 13:26:08)Heather ruminates

(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: 1FAIpQLSfyHl7lUUen4S4zOSPEIKrfnjZKgITvZbe-3-Cmkcqa5ACnjg/ viewform?usp=sf_link

(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: through-the-pages—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!

(09/07 13:35:56)Korov’ev: Here is the summary of this month’s events (times in KI time)…

(09/07 13:36:51)Korov’ev: ( that is, the Mac version 😛 )

(09/07 13:36:58)Korov’ev: coincidentally, it’s also the date (Leevot 9) in which the original D’ni Guild of Writers was founded, in 7649 BC;
