I want canon, but I also want other things. I want a truly Open Uru where people are free to create and experiment without regard for canon. Those ideas can then be reworked by others and form the basis for a canon Age/code feature. I want to see a system of merit rather than a system of canon interpretation.
I agree that Uru should be completely open for experimentation. Anybody should be able to create whatever they want, but
getting those changes accepted into the main trunk of the code (once it is open source), or for fan ages, accepted as an Age which normal users can see, should be subject to extremely stringent guidelines.
A few examples of "out-of-game configuration" on the main server could include installing custom client-side addons (in another thread, Whilyam suggests new Ki integration with things like Twitter), or selectively adding canon-breaking fan Ages to their Relto shelves (even on the main server). But a book which an ordinary player can find in the Ae'gura library should not break canon.
