I have acquired a lot of music since the last Under the Roots/Up On the Roof! party, and I've gotten better at playlist design. A few months ago I got to wondering what kind of Roof! party might be possible under these changed conditions, so I'm making a new-from-scratch playlist... pretty much on speculation.

Is there a 'bot available to provide access to the Tokotah Rooftop? That's the key element.

This won't happen until October at the earliest, due to prior commitments and the playlist not being complete.

For newcomers: Up On the Roof! was a party I started on the Great Tree shard in December, 2005. When Cyan opened the D'mala shard, we moved there. A short time later it became a 10-hour party so we could accommodate Europeans with an early start. When Gametap Live opened, we lost access to the Rooftop due to instancing, and the party moved to the Watcher's Sanctuary as "Under the Roots." It wasn't the same. Much of the history of this was lost in the closing of several forums, such as Uru Obsession, but there are still a few posts here and there, and Cris's pictures. That Max... not only can he cut a rug, but he loves pizza.

There are 2 bots able to send anyone to the rooftop (assuming they are online and working as they sometimes crash) : Magicbot (KI 21418998) and Mir-o-bot (KI 19542524). They share the same command 'to dakotah' (just PM this one) to go up there. I can quite easily contact Mister Magic or Mirphak (the creators). I'll send them this thread.

Thank you, Janeerah. I'll continue assembling the playlist and, once the Renaissance project is complete, look for a good time to host a party on the Rooftop.

Oops !
As we had the reset (everyone is aware of it, yes?), magicbot KI is now #27527 and Mir o bot is #32319

looking forward to this one, LC :D

There's used to be a way around the instancing issue. If you find the Bahro-stone that leads to the rooftop, one person can use the little 'share' icon for it... anyone he shares the link with, is going to end up on the roof in the public instance of the city.

Only problem is.. the guy doing the sharing can't follow everyone else.

Yep, and then Cyan removed the share link from the Bahro stone, so you can't do that any more.
And yes, I did look after the reset, and it's still gone.

The only way, is have MagicBot up there for everyone to link to.

I had a simple way to avoid that. Use an alt on another account (which is at first why i created this 2nd one)

We tried the Bahro stone one time... it was a big mess. Crashes in Gira, crashes elsewhere, mislinks, bad timing. Not the kind of thing that's conducive to a good party. So, we moved to the Watcher's Sanctuary.

Now with the bot available, it's easy.

Forget this Janeerah... re-read what Alien wrote, it's not possible anymore to share that particular bahro stone.

I wrote the original post in August, knowing what plans were coming for September. Then October came along and caused all kinds of scheduling havoc; I was subbing for other DJs in Second Life, which displaced my own plans... and then Kerryth made this wonderful Silk Road Rest Stop for the Burn 2 "Caravanserai" event, which seemed a natural for my Silk Road Musical Journey (9 playlists, 14 hours) over the 9 days of Burn 2. The result of all this being that all other plans got pushed aside, and I had to think for a moment... Oh, yes, I did post about a potential Roof! party!

Doing it on the Rooftop depends upon access to a bot that's set up to do it, and there are scheduling issues with this, too. Nothing insurmountable, but I'll need to coordinate with the botmakers. Stay tuned... So far, November is looking calmer than October was. 9 days, 12 events.

Max has mentioned he's also looking for peeps to do something event-wise in early-mid Nov with more details tentatively to be released @the Nov 1st AGM.

Just tossing the info out there...Max will likely be by to provide more thought and details here soon.
