Re: Return To Devokan

I've been struggling with this decision for a whole week now. I've come to an end of what I'm willing to do for the Trust: the expectations and requirements placed on me by its founder, Quinquifid Oddenfen; the lack of communication; the "little surprises" Quin drops on me in the form of unaccounted...

Re: Return To Devokan

This last batch of invoices of lab equipment Quin sent to me for payment was the final straw. He is using a new supplier -- VRsimility . Yes, the items are reasonably priced, and well made. But the quantities he has ordered are beyond reasonable -- and the total cost way beyond what is left in the T...

Re: Return To Devokan

I've just returned from a meeting with Quin on Touchstone. I've never seen him so excited before -- his hands were literally trembling. "There's been a breakthrough!" he exclaimed. "It's just been reported by Mr Hurvitz. The real-time transfer of matter from this supposedly closed universe to places...

Dot Matrix? Who?

One of the things I've found since first having an avatar, back in the days of the GameTap era of Myst Online: Uru Live (MOUL), is that names matter. Dot was the name I chose then for my avatar -- no surname needed in those days. Then in 2008, just a year later, GameTap closed MOUL down. As many peo...

Kitely Mentors Group Meeting, 7 August 2013: summary

Introduction Ilan introduced the meeting by saying: "We all agree the existing Kitely Plaza needs to be replaced the question is with what. Let's call the world the Kitely Welcome Center so we have a name for it (we can change that later). The KWC will be the recommended entry point for new users (...

Re: Welcome Center: Optimum size?

Sorry, Minethere, I should have made my reasoning explicit. If a 3x3 is used with the main landing spot on a central edge, it would mean that the furthest row or column of three is less useful in terms of landscaping (it would be just more of the same, and a potential waste of resources). Therefore,...

Re: Off Topic

Perhaps one way to make clear that General Discussion includes Off Topic is to expand the subforum description to something like:

"Talk about anything, whether on topic or off topic"

Re: Kitely welcome area: What does it need to include?

Apologies for all the repeat postings... For the teleportal designs, there's a variety of rather attractive ones in Miguel Rotunno's Ilha Magica , originally from OSgrid (so there are lots of hypergrid portals -- Miguel is obviously preparing!). I especially like the one you walk on. While it uses h...

Re: Kitely welcome area: What does it need to include?

Paislee, Sherrie and I were able to chat with Ilan in Ruminations, where he expanded a little on Kitely's vision for the welcome center. He had just visited Sri Isodhyana Online and was very taken with how that world had laid out paths for learning -- how the paths drew you on in a voyage of discove...
