Maybe it is at Cyans wishes so Tpots is not online smile.gif and in their way?
This is just MY speculation.

Maybe some one could enlighten me as to who are The Guild of Engineers , what was their function, and was it an IC group in the TPOTS.

Maybe it signifies something other than an ending?

I read GOE closing their shard more as a reaction to Cyan's recent activity (ie, the GD post).
If GOE wants to continue development and possibly host ages written by their group (under the cover of DEMO or TESTING the code) then a public shard may cause an issue. I got the impression that at least some of the age builders were pulling their ages off the lists due to the results of the GD post.
And I believe one of the posts someone put up about GOE doing down was more that it was going private, not really dark.

I could be mixing a lot of the various threads together incorrectly (and saying something not supported by the facts), but I think all of the above seems reasonable. Not good for those of use who just play ages, not build, but I'll keep to my optimism.

Does anyone agree that Cyan asked that mods and ages not be further distributed, as opposed to the their actions being a 'don't do that' ?
I read GD's post and the follow up activity as more of a 'we are getting the house in order' and 'we are doing something' as opposed to the potential turning Uru* into exclusively managed abandonware. I'd think they'd kill the authserver first.

Once again, guys . . .
could you consider the possibility . . .
that the smoke you see in the air above Spokane . . .
as message . . .
ala Native American methods . . .
being passed from community members to community members . . .
and NOT as a blazing forest fire . . .
that MUST be destroying all?

Dang, guys.
A little non-negative attitude, please?
Just for a few messages?

I came back and read what I posted. I DO sound negative. I'm surprised.
Cyan gave us plasma, so they love us. And we kept playing.
Cyan keeps the auth server going, so they love us.
Cyan figured out how to keep surviving when they could have just walked away. So they love us.
Cyan invited us back to Spokane, so they can show us they love us.
Cyan never said they wanted us to stop building, just let them know what we were up to and keep it to ourselves. So they don't hate us.
DRC has started whispering to themselves. They may not love us, but that's IC, so they really can't love us. That proves that Cyan loves us.
/me is fat dumb and happy soaking up all the love.

Something is going to happen. It's not going to be the cavern going dark. It will be something more than what we got with POTS. It will be, um, live. And I hope, no matter what it is, it is something very different than what all of us have expected. No matter what.
Butch offers his Cyan Kool-Aid to the gathering crowd. He's had enough, it seems. Really wants to share.

Here, here, Tink!

I have always viewed GD's recent postings with a positive outlook... and I really don't understand the prevalent negative take on them, either... this is a good thing, and Cyan is getting ready (eventually) for something awesome that is really going to knock our socks off! It's what they DO!!! I *choose* to see the Alcugs server being taken off-line as a positive step toward the GOE people helping Cyan to get their legal "ducks in a row".

Could be an interrim step to a new presentation of same.

At least that's The Mental Mob's positive take . . .
on the coming shut down.

Doesn't necessarily mean it's gonna be GONE.

Just might be that . . .
that set of wizards . . .
could be redecorating . . .
moving around the furniture . . .
changing the shard's address . . .
evolving to the next level . . .

so to speak.

Maybe it's me I didn't read negativity at Cyan in these posts Or I just need more coffee.
There is so much going on around the community Cyan needs time we have
had a free run until now if they want to change things and step in it is there Right
not ours
I have full confidence that Cyan will continue with Uru just getting all there eggs in one basket is a bit more difficult now
with all the talented people around
and they need to try and keep everyone happy but think of themselves and URU.
Hmmm thats my opinion justremeber this only effects the GoA Shard NOT forums ect.

My $0.02 - if Cyan were in a position to make any kind of comeback, I would expect it would include the ending of all shards.

Sometimes the endings really are just beginnings.
