Some people seem to be confused about what we are trying to accomplish here. I am hearing comments like “its just a forum”, “its not a big deal” and so forth. It is not just about the forum, the forum is a small thing, I am looking at the bigger picture here.

Once upon a time the DRC would barely communicate with us, they under estimated the explorers, and so we rose up (with The Great Tree and with Sharper) and showed them that we are a force to be reckoned with, that we are in D’ni too and to call for communication.

The DRC were doing pretty well with communication, until some set backs, one being the liaisons, the other being the loss of the forums which could have been better used.

Now this sit in is not just about the forums, to me it is about the following.

  • To get the forums back, either for good or as an archive.
  • To show Cate that, dispite her view, there are some of us who do care.
  • To show Cate that we are still here, we shall remain here and we are as much a part of D’ni as the DRC are, this needs to be remembered.
  • That D’ni isn’t just about her, her instant gratification or the DRC its about us all (Bahro and all).
  • To show that we can work together and can have a voice and will not be walked over (today the forums tomorrow what? Take away the city?).

Just a few of the things this is about to me.

Now I am not up for the hostilites, I don’t think Cate is stupid, I do disagree with some of her choices not surprisingly.
Some people don’t get that this is about more than the forum, and some just don’t get the spirit of Uru at all, which is a shame.

I was in the Cavern lastnight seeing what kind of support this matter was getting when I hopped into the Beginners Bevin (the hood that will serve as an overflow for the sit in if the City gets full) and one of the ResEng’s was in there, the subject came up and he asked about it and we told him how we felt about the forum and he said he would mention it in his nightly ResEng report. So I guess the DRC know whats happening tomorrow, whether any of them will show up remains to be seen.

Oh and incidently the RSS feed for UruBlogs seems to be broken (the feed currently uses feedburner) so I would recommend using this link instead: RSS
