Been around since the end of 2003 for all the Betas, online fun, and sad shutdowns. I check the forums (here and Open URU) daily and visit online at least 3 or 4 days/week at various times. Sadly that's less than I did a year or so ago but lately there are fewer folks visiting and needing assistance. Sometimes it's just me and the taciturn ResEng for hours.

I do try to come in as often as I can, but there doesn't appear to be many active players lately and more often than not, I am sometimes the only one in the Cavern, or with just one or two others online.

I've been around since right before Uru Live closed in early 2004, and in every incarnation since then: Until Uru and Gametap. I still log in every Saturday to host Karaoke in Karaoke's Hood.

Dunno if I count as 'old guard' (probably, I mean, I was about in the UU days before D'mala) but I'm mostly on the CC discord more than anything even if I check here once in a while (like once a month). I don't really go in-cavern much, no big reason to it feels. Though we might see some trickling in now with Chogon's new post.

Been around in the forums since late 2003; in Prologue courtesy of the 2004 Clerical Error. I check this forum a couple times a week, and visit the caverns two or three times a month.

I started in the cavern back in the GameTap days when Mac folks finally got access. I don't get onto the forums much these days and I have no idea if my old MOULa Cider client still works on the new Mac OS (wonder exactly which old hard drive it might be on....).

Along with EdisonRex, I'm still hosting the Radio Free D'ni broadcasts in Second Life. My SL profile still says (and always will):

"Rabid researcher of all things D'ni, specializing in (but not limited to) botanical, zoological, and anthropological topics. Flickr research photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/ainiadafente/"

I still drop into the cavern once in awhile. When I can, I visit both the D'ni Museum of Art 'hood for their Monday and Thursday evening gatherings, and The Meeting Place's Sunday afternoon sessions.

But I spend most of my URU time on Agebuilding and other behind-the-scenes projects.
And I can tell you that there are - worldwide - a large number of talented, skilled people working on URU-oriented projects every day, people who you almost *never* see in-cavern, because they're too busy building Ages - or making the tools with which to build Ages!

So even though you may not see them around very often, they have not by any means dropped away. There are dozens of dedicated people out there doing some amazing work.

Hello altogether, another 2003er here.
I had a break of about 4 years being not online, and checked back just for curiosity - now I find myself replaying once again (20th time?), visiting Hoods again, and so on... :)

I joined at first chance after Prologue. Back in 04 I think. Since then I have visited the cavern on a regular basis. I don't stay long, and it is always during "european hours". But I keep coming back. :D

My Dad (Gandhar) introduced me to the game in 2007. I was 14 at the time. I got married in 2015 which left me not visiting very often. We had a baby boy in 2017 which left me not visiting even less. I do check the forums now and again for updates and on occasion I sit in at the AGM but I rarely visit the cavern anymore.

(10/28 21:19:16) GorenDeBree: thanks for the CC cookies Budgie
(10/28 21:19:28) Budgie2: You are most welcome
(10/28 21:19:44) Cuthbert: Chocolate Chip cookies? someone had chocolate chip cookies

Also found another chat log from when Dr. Marie Sutherland visited in 2006.
Jimbo and few others I recognized were there.

And there were UruLive logs from 2006 labeled "Rehearsal" and from 2007 labeled "Beta".

Just thought I would share
Goren

2006 Rehearsal ... I was a part of that.

I have a Sil-oh-wet story that she will never know about. RIP.

She'd had an idea for a visit of Yeesha to her relto ... and with GregBert's help and Cyan's permission, I made that happen. I missed it though as I was in bed, UK being 8 hours ahead of PST.

It occurred to me a few days ago it has been about a decade of my being around URU. I was stunned by that, that URU has been with me for so long. That feels long, but it puts me, I suppose, in the relatively new crowd - I haven't been around for virtually any continuation. But here, eternally lurking.

That reminds me of an old marker game on, I think it was Tapestry around Christmastime, that somehow enumerated all the members.

Hacking URU since July 2005...

Good grief, the Tapestry shard! That brings back memories.
