In the meantime, I'm considering changing the introductory paragraph to something like:
The Explorers Memorial is a monument of four rings with a scrolling list of names, located just outside of the Kahlo Pub on Ae'gura Island in the game, Myst Online: Uru Live. This page is a list of those names, exactly as they appear on the memorial and is intended to provide more information on the people behind them, both real and fictional, but with more emphasis on the real community members who were lost to us and are missed by their friends. For more information on the history of the memorial, please see the section, "IC & OOC History."
But, then I'll need to write a history section and I need a break, so I'll just drop my initial research here if anyone wants to look at it and comment:

As summer months approached on the surface, more and more explorers were choosing to spend their time in the cavern, despite the tragic events of the last month. The community continued to grow, while the remaining DRC pressed on with the restoration, and as the last full week of June came around, a spectacular announcement was made. The initial calibration of the Great Zero had been completed, and plans were in place to have the device activated and functional the next evening.
Meanwhile, as explorers mulled over the same bit of mystery that's been eating at them for months, Marie Sutherland made her way into the Kahlo Pub to unveil a new item. There in the entrance to the pub, near the crack that had kept everyone in bated breath a month ago, stood a new imager. On this imager were several slowly rotating rings, each one displaying it's own set of names. Names of explorers that have passed away over the last few years... people lost to illness, events on the surface, and even those who gave their lives for the restoration. A memorial to stand as long as the restoration continued, a way to remember that which should never be forgotten. The people.

Aug 19, 2007 MOUL forum post by Romer Openfield: Yes, I saw the memorial in the pub...but I have NO idea what it is for, or where to look. I am "assuming" it is for explorers who have passed, but it seems so odd that it is down near the rubble of the pub.
