It is an inference drawn from this post from Chogon: viewtopic.php?f=40&t=28347

Mac_Fife, that post was written on Jun 10, 2016. 8 months ago !

i wholeheartedly agree that without new players things won't go well for MOULa. (they are already not going very well). as an example - GUILD OF WIZARDS started a donation campaign a few months ago and although many people were willing to support it and many people donated, many also objected to it with a reason : "i can't get into MOULa so why would i donate." so what could i reply to that ? :(

i hope that our huge and quite unique community of fans matter. after all it was us that supported every CYAN's project. it was us that were there every time they needed something to help, contribute, support, promote ... etc. (the list is long) as much as we could. i know that people (we love) in CYAN are busy but this is important too. please hear us. thank you.

There’s also this issue that might have complicated things.

A few weeks prior to the 7 Years Anniversary TrapperDave and me were in contact
with CYAN. Foremost sending an invite to the Parties! And RAWA was very generous
to visit us [very early his] Wednesday. Appreciated by all and very gracious of him!

We also included some urgent questions on a couple of subjects:
Activation or opening up for Creating of New Accounts for New Explorers...
Donations Status aka CavCon Status...
CYAN's plans for the Cavern in short time perspective and on a long time run...

Some of these subjects or maybe all of them are beyond our control. As they might
be dependent on solving some technical issues that we are not aware of. But still...
CYAN are now very aware that we'd like to have some insights on these matters...

But be patient and stay tuned...

I think this is also relevant here, as mentioned at the latest AGM on March 4th...

We were already before the 7 Years Anniversary in touch with CYAN and made
some inquiries on the following matters: New Accounts Creation / CavCon Status
/ CYAN's future plans regarding the Cavern.

We got a reply this week that in short is as follows: CYAN has had a meeting
reg. account creation. A solution to activate that is in the works but that
requires writing some coding and they'll implement that when they can. So...
Stay patient! [there was a topic a few months back about tech issues
hampering that, IIRC]

Reg CavCon Status: If RAWA is up to it, he should have a look and let us know.
If not, then Chogon will, or even Tor'i... [my guess is that this might require
doing some calculations or reading graphs etc.]. So yet again... stay patient!

And regarding the Future of the Cavern... as these things are connected. CYAN
will reveal their plans for us in due time with posts on the MOULa Forums

But to quote Tor'i at CYAN... "All of these topics touch on the future of the
Cavern and depending on how all of it goes is when we can really talk about
plans. We are very hopeful that everything will come together in the not too
distant future..."

Not quite the answer I was hoping for, but at least it's an answer after all that time.

Thank goodness. I have a few friends who want to play and are chomping at the bit to get in!

(Okay, chomping at the bit is an exaggeration, but still!)

But access is available right now to at least two other shards - Guild of Writers' Gehn, and OpenUru.org Foundry's Minkata.

i am hopeful that Cyan has the resources and the will to keep the Cavern alive. it is a special place for many of us and one that should be treasured and preserved. with the Speed and ability of modern computing to keep the servers running for it is a very small task and needs minimal admin oversight.

it might help to reactivate some of the custom avatars and story that we know is part of the program that would help a lot too. I am aware that people enjoy the bots and creative alteration of the Cavern but I for one love it just as it is and would love to see it continue and allow new visitors I believe we might also find people wiling to be trained to be demi ResEngs to help with things as time allows.

good to see interest continuing for a very special virtual World.

Dr CrisGer (and Max)

I think the will is there, Cris, but I'm sure that resources are tight; they always have been throughout MOULa. However, there is movement on the account creation side, so maybe we won't have to wait too long for that to open up again - that would be "soon" as in a "most people probably won't need to be cryogenically frozen in order to see it happen" kind of "soon".

How much would it cost to hire a temporary programmer to fix the problem? Maybe if we knew what cost we're looking at here we might be able to do a donation run to get it to happen. It's been a while since Obduction came out, is there no spare time to do some of the work on opening new account creation? Maybe we could foot the bill for overtime if one of the existing programmers would be willing.

Being able to create new accounts is just so important for our little community. I've run into a few situations now where I told someone about Uru and I wasn't able to get them on board. For every new potential Myst fan you have new people buying your products, long term.

That's not really the issue - it's a bit more prosaic than that. A first step is in hand, it's just that no-one can yet say with any certainty when it will be ready.

Hopefully soon, I miss introducing new people to the cavern -fingers crossed-

When you absolutely, positively have to be there right now, new accounts are available on at least two other shards - Guild of Writers' Gehn, and OpenUru.org Foundry's Minkata.

The OpenUru.org Minkata Testing Shard is the closest to Cyan's MOULa shard, but if you want to see more, I recommend the Guild of Writers' Gehn Shard.

Thanks to all the volunteers who are working on a solution to this problem. You guys don't get enough credit or appreciation.
