Purpose - Hypergrid & Second Life Project

Post by Nalates » Mon Feb 01, 2010 9:17 pm

This forum section is for Myst/Uru fans and others building Myst/Uru-style worlds and games in the Hypergrid and Second Life. While it is debatable whether Blue Mars is or will be part of the Hypergrid, we are including it too. If there is enough interest we may split it off to its own section. Also, Team Fortress builders can start off here too.

The basic forum rules apply here with the addition that Cyan's Intellectual Property rights will be respected. This means but is not limited to download links to Cyan content not provided or licensed by Cyan are not permitted on this forum. Encouraging, promoting and discussing unauthorized use of Cyan materials, i.e., textures, meshes, sounds, and etc., are not an acceptable topics for discussion. We acknowledge this creates a gray area and are working on an example of what works.

Perhaps amend this paragraph to:
Besides the basic forum rules that apply throughout the OpenUru forums, a further rule here explicitly requires respect for Cyan Worlds' (and others') Intellectual Property Rights.

Here are some examples of unacceptable topics according to this rule:
Encouraging, promoting and discussing unauthorised use of Cyan materials, such as textures, meshes, sounds, etc.
Posting download links to Cyan content not provided or licensed by Cyan

This is likely to be a grey area, but when issues arise discussion via pm is encouraged. However, the moderators will have the final say, and will add to the list of examples above for future reference.
The last paragraph is a suggestion -- how would we (as moderators) handle such discussions in practice?
===
Edit: the original Forum ideas for OpenUru has this to say:
There are three key principles I want everyone to keep in mind, but all principles can be derived from the first:

1) Do no damage.
2) All projects and behavior must be legal.
3) Cyan rights must be respected.
So really we are suggesting nothing new; just spelling out what the 3rd principle means in practice.
