Guild of Archivists and MYSTcommunity Co-hosting Fanfiction February

The Guild of Archivists and MYSTCommunity are teaming up to host a history-themed fanfiction challenge this February. Further details have yet to be ironed out, but there will be an ongoing discussion about the upcoming event at the thread on the Guild of Archivists' site here.  If anyone is interested, both groups encourage interested parties to join in on the talks.

Keep watching here at the Guild of Messengers for any updates as they come in.

All Guilds Meeting - October 2012

Shorah everyone!  Another month goes by and another All Guilds Meeting brings a flurry of activity to Kirel on an otherwise peaceful Saturday.  Things started off by giving Leonardo a proper thank you for his service as moderator.  And of course, the usual raw and cleansed chatlogs are here for those that couldn't make it.

Here's the usual Guild of Messengers' All Guilds Meeting Summary (tm)!

Lyrositor

Ly was first up to discuss the latest upgrades he's made to Lyrobot, who, for the first time, joined everyone for the meeting.  These changes include:

  • Able to page in several avatars like Kodama and Blake and animate them properly.
  • Can link you to more Ages by PM, including one of the Bahro caves.
  • A more improved teleport function for within Ages.
  • More control over how much your avatar shrinks or grows with an optional size modifier.

Check Lyrobot's site linked above for more information!

DPWR.net Announcement

The Guild of Archivists made an important announcement a few days ago regarding their website, DPWR.net. A massive overhaul is indeed planned by Alahmnat, consisting of various changes.

First of all, the current DPWR.net will be archived and locked to remain as-is for the foreseeable future. This means that all new content will be on a new domain (quite possible guildofarchivists.org) built from the ground up (all previous users will retain their accounts and PMs, but the gallery and the forums will be wiped clean). The forums will also see several existing categories be removed, and registration will be re-enabled once more.

With this technical refresh comes also a planned content update to bring people "a clean, modern, and informative place to learn about the D'niverse", with a complete rebuilding of all the previous content on the new website (inducing a temporary lack of information on the new website while everything is being transfered and surveyed). All MRD fanfics will also be transferred, unlike non-MRD fanfics.

The planned launch date for the new website is September 30th

DPWR Looking for PHP Developer

DPWR is currently seeking a volunteer PHP developer to help with feature development and site maintenance activities. Volunteers will be provided with instructions on how to access the SVN repository for the site, which will include a development team wiki for discussion and feature planning. Some experience with Invision Power Board is preferred, but definitely not required. If interested, please contact Alahmnat at alahmnat [at] dpwr [dot] net.

Talk about Story at DPWR!

In collaboration with the Guild of Archivists, I am expanding the Writer's Ring forums at DPWR to provide a gathering place for people interested in the nature of Story and Canon in Uru and those who want to add to it.

It's my hope that these forums will provide a good central place to discuss what Story is, the nature of being In Cavern and talk about what makes a good story (fan-run or otherwise) in Uru. Also, hopefully it will be a place for storytellers, plot designers and role-players to gather to collaborate and discuss their art. When the FCAL process for story elements is finally up, I hope this will become a place to discuss how to best fit stories into the FCAL process, as well as to discuss when is best to not bother with the FCAL and just do your own thing.

If you are interested in Story in Uru, Canon, role-playing, constructing D'ni history and all of the other fan-run story goodness, come by the forums and start a thread or join in with the threads that are there.
