The first day of June...and that means the first All Guilds Meeting of the (unofficial start of) summer! Many presentations this month, which you can read about in both the raw and cleansed chatlogs, as well as this handy summary below:
Zeke365 came up first to talk a bit about his new project, the Cavern Theater, a talent show that can include stories, karaoke, short plays, and more. Anyone is welcome to participate. The first event will be June 21st at 21:00 KI time. Read more about the project here.
I.H.P.X. was next to present for the International Hood, introducing a festival event dubbed D'nipalooza, where they intend to feature several musicians for the purpose of raising funds for the CAVCON. Read more about it at this forum thread if interested.

Some good news for those attempting to take their first steps into the cavern...or trying to regain control of their existing accounts.
Cyan Worlds, Inc., with the help of Mac[_Fife] of OpenUru.org, have restored the Account Creation and Password Reset systems! As many probably noticed, both of those functions have been offline since late last month. Since then, the company has been working when they can to restore these essential systems so new people can experience D'ni.
From Chogon's post:
The MOULa account creation and password reset is back ONLINE and ready for use (I see already several have created new accounts!).
Many thanks to Mac_Fife for allowing Cyan to use the account creation and password reset system that he wrote for OpenUru.org. And with his help I was able integrate it into the MOULa servers (which have a different account system).
And besides getting the account creation back online, we now have a more easily maintainable system than before.
Thanks for everyone's patience and support!
Many thanks to everyone that contributed to getting these crucial functions restored. Welcome to all newcomers who have been trying to get in...and to those returning with recovered passwords!
Some good news for programmers out there... the Guild of Writers/H'uru has once again begun to post new builds of the CyanWorlds.com Engine (CWE) for all to use! The public releases had to be stopped awhile back due to licensing issues, but the problem was recently solved and work has resumed!
For those not technically inclined, CWE is the game engine that runs Myst Online: URU Live Again and was released as open source over two years ago. Many of the fixes Cyan Worlds, Inc. has incorporated since have been derived from various programmers' work with the engine. In addition to the client, you can also download the Max 2012 Plugin for Age creation, based on the plugin Cyan used to create Uru's Ages.
The old builds had to be removed due to the aforementioned licensing problems, so a new thread has been started for all future build releases. For any questions, read Hoikas' original post and ask your questions there.
A big thank you to all those programmers out there who continue to improve and expand MO:ULa for us all!
Greetings again, fellow explorers!
As some of you may already know, the time have once again arrived for the much celebrated song and dance completion known as EuroVision!
This event has become a yearly tradition, allowing the myriad international members of the cavern community to gather together in the city and watch elating triumphs and harrowing defeats of the various competitors of this exciting show.
The event kicks off this Saturday, May 18th at 13:00 KI Time. Both the International Hood and the Guild of Sleepers have arranged for beverages and light snacks to be provided at various points around Ae'gura throughout the broadcast.
Let's have a great party, and good luck to this year's competitors!
