I'd imagine new content will arrive as soon as it's ready, which in some cases may be more or less now. I've heard some people have been working on their own projects while OS was still in the making. of course, they still need to share and impliment that content into a fan run shard.
I'd imagine whatever can come first is whatever developers can manage or have managed so far.
and possibilities of open source? whatever developers can manage to do with it.
that's my laymans take on those matters anyway.
I think you've got a solid grasp on the situation.
my questions are:
1.) will there be a way to host content all in one place so as not to seperate explorers across multiple shards?
2.) what will determine what content is suitable for os uru. i.e.: cyan level of quality and work that pretains ligitimately to uru.
Tough questions to answer. I'm not going to try to answer (1) because ... I'm not qualified to try to explain it and I'll probably say something wrong.
As for (2) - that is going to depend upon the administrator for each shard, and how you personally define "Cyan level of quality" because not everyone here even agrees what that means. (It's an aesthetic, subjective thing... not really objectively measurable.) What pertains legitimately to Uru can only truly be decided by Cyan, though RAWA has posted guidelines at http://mystonline.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=15890 . Short of any declaration from Cyan, you will have to decide for yourself if you want to consider someone's fan creation as a part of your version of Uru canon.
Edit: Bad auto-URL detection, the period at the end is not part of the URL. Bad! No biscuit.
