Shorah,

I have this little question in mind. I was looking at the memberlist and I saw a lot of explorers with the joined date May 9th, 2006.

There was surely something before that. Is it when the Gametap MOUL came alive that you all moved to this forum?

For me the History is (I might be wrong here, I just recollected info here and there from Ancients :lol: ):

2001 Beta-testing
2002 URU Live
2003 Aborted because of Ubisoft
2004-2006 hmm...maybe D'mala shard & Until Uru shards
2006-2008 Gametap MOUL <--- so it would fit the date of May 9th, 2006
2008-2010 dark times with an unofficial Alcugs shard that we must not named :wink:
2010-2011 MOULa
2011-present CWE

May 9 2006 was the date that Cyan announced (on urulive.com and drcsite.org) that they would be launching Uru Live in association with Turner/GameTap.

The forums here opened on May 8, 2006. For a few minutes. The server crashed under the demand, but was brought back online the next day. That's why you'll see a few May 8th registrations and a lot of May 9th.

Before MystOnline.com, there was http://forums.DRCSite.org , an In-Cavern/Character (IC) site built for the original Uru Live in 2003 with an Out-Of-Cavern/Character (OOC) section, added in March, 2006, where RAWA was a frequent contributor to discussion. The site is now closed to posts due to heavy spamming on very old forum software. Cyan also had some forums of its own, now closed, for its various products.

The DRC forums showed a slow build to life for Myst Online: Uru Live (MOUL), beginning Dec 21, 2005, as seen on the DRC Discussions forum of that site. Those discussions lead to D'mala, announced Feb 14th, 2006, the official pre-GameTap MOUL Until Uru shard. It was a place for old and new fans to gather and attend introductory Town Hall Meetings held there by Cyan to introduce and take questions about Turner, GameTap and MOUL. D'mala was shut down shortly before MOUL went live on February 15, 2007 after beta testing and a Preview.

Thx JWPlatt :)

Those are some info I didn't get from other explorers who were there at the time.

Can I suggest that the arrival of open source didn't mean that MOULa disappeared? Either you should show MOULa as continuing to the present along with CWE (Open Source) arriving in 2011 and running in parallel, or change the last line to "2011-present MOULa with CWE"

But the other thing is that the original question seemed to be about the forums, but the timeline relates to the various game iterations, so I'm bit confused what you were really asking about?

I think she means her own experiences. It's not that MOULa disappeared, but that she personally stopped using it at that time in favor of a different client?

Although, that is still confusing since using a CWE client still counts as playing "MOULa", right? (I mean as long as it's on the same Cyan server.)

Yeah, that's what's maybe misleading or confusing, in my reading of the post.

Well I'm a bit confused myself to be honest and I really thought that since Cyan released their stuff in open-source, there were not anymore an ownership thus making every clients a CWE client including the one released by Cyan since June 2011. Like I said, my "History" comes more from what people tells me than anything else. If I'm wrong then it's fine.

And even JWPlatt made me realised a mistake. I thought GameTap MOUL had been alive 2 years from 2006 to 2008 when it was more from 2007 to 2008 only.

My timeline is there not to confuse anyone, it was just a "reference" for me to try to locate why this forum came alive at that exact date. JWPlatt answered me perfectly explaining what was before and why it was created on March 8th, 2006, the goal of all this.

I found when I registered for the Myst III Exile forum, where I lurked after Rivenguild, that the dates carried over to the Ubisoft Uru forum, as such, my 'Born on date' is July 2001.

Here is a 'recent' post on the "Do Not Tell Lies" thread:

Annabelle, that thread had been a lot of fun, but I couldn't say so in the thread. I used to spend a lot of time on that forum in 2004. :lol:

The days before May 9th 2006 were dark, feudalistic days of warring factions and rabid Bahro. One did not simply wander into the cavern for fear they would not return. Those days were the days of legends and lore. Where men could either become heroes or villains. Where helpless thousands disappeared into the void, most never to be seen again...

iirc that time period was in the D'mala era. Towards the very beginning (or beta) stages. Looking through my logs from that time, that is my best guess. There was a lot going on behind closed doors back in those days.

~Weldergeek

edit: actually it looks more like GT era.. D'mala came a few months earlier by my calculations.. Hard for me to tell based on what I've got. I can't remember my DRC forum password so no help there lol.
