- Have a part of the community control what other can/can't do. Generally, too much control over what can't / can be in the games. It should be an (almost) anything goes.

- Creating servers for the shake of creating servers. it's nice a have differenst servers,but too many servers kill the games. Just of question of finding the right compromise between divisity and number of servers. The uru community is not large enough to need hundreds of server.

- Use copyrighted content (from cyan or others..) Let's not turn this in a legal mess.

As long as it doesn't come at the cost of Uru's spirit.

Well, open source mean that we can have more than one server, so, server owners can state rules like "this server is IC" or "this server is OOC" and everything will go fine. Though we need a server (or group of), that will be stated as canon / controlled by cyan; and yada yada.

Then, i guess that no will go against me if i say that porn, nazi reference and other nastiness should be forbidden in any server whatsoever. But that should be about the only restriction.

I hope there will be a server where things will be controled. I don't really want a "second life".

Quite right. But like i said, noting preffants a server owner from saying : "this server will have only ic controlled stuff"

I too worry terribly about fragmenting the community over too many independent game instances. It is unfortunately human nature that this is likely to happen, as it did in Until Uru. Everyone wants to run a server because they get to be "top dog", and everyone wants to be top dog.

I fear the worst, but hope for the best. :)

Since servers can be clustered from places around the world, it would be possible for those who want to run one kind of server (IC, OOC, silly, etc.) to run their kind of Uru together and not separate. I saw a great deal of UU shards back in the day which really didn't have any differences and were probably only separate because of the fact that UU servers couldn't be scaled like MOUL's apparently can.

I'd also say that everyone wants to run a server, not because they want to be "top dog," but because they love Uru and want to be a part of its revival.

yup.

Ah well, the best way not to screw up holds in two words : "work together !"

Then create a shard that has no top dogs. Do you really believe that people want to run shards to be the 'top dog'? Heck, I used to go incog on my own shard because I was tired of the fawning and attention. Some people do this to try and curry favor with the shard owner, and nothing drove me away from someone faster. I am happy just being another face in the crowd, running a shard is nothing special.

Anyone can run a shard, it is really no big deal. If someone thinks that makes them special then they must lead a miserable life or suffer from low self-esteem. The only advantage of running a shard is that you set the rules, and if you think that is an advantage they try dealing with the people when they break them!

Here is a fun thought: Many people have wanted to get their hands on the AdminKI code for a long time. It has been both a great tool and a pain in the rear for shard owners (and some in the public). Well, with Uru going open source, guess what? You will probably see all of the AdminKi code your heart will ever desire real soon. Why? Because now that we will have the source, we can configure the game to only allow code that a particular shard will use. So there will no longer be a need to hide the code from anyone.

I am sure that I made your day for some of you, and then ruined it right afterward...lol ;)

I agree about the adminKI. It does not have to be a secret anymore. Mainly because the way it was implemented in UU would not work in the MOUL client anyway. That hole has been plugged.
So there is no need to cripple any of the standard Python functions. Yes standard Python functions, that was all the adminKI used. Anyone with a brain (edit: and programming experience of course) could have made an adminKI and in fact many people did so on their own.

Thaks D'Lanor i appreciate your sharing that, and your knowledge of things i trust. Others seem intent on making this an antagonistic thing by trying to bait people into have their days runined. I am happy happy indeed to see the cavern return, and do not plan to fall into politics of any kind for others motives. this is a happy day.
