Posted on the Uru Obsession Forum:
We have an announcement to make - we're going to keep it brief:
It's been a great honor for us to run this site for all of you, but as all things must eventually end, so the time has come for UO to end as well. After 10 years of being online in various forms, starting with Mudpie Obsession, the forum will officially shut down on New Year's Eve. All of us at URU Obsession's Staff would like to thank you all for being part of this project - without you UO would have never been such a big part of the Myst community.
Perhaps someday we will meet again, someplace else.
