Important Announcement!

The Orion's Arm Universe Project Discussion Forum is now open!
All members of the Worldbuilding Group, Writing and Arts group, and 3D Modelling group are invited to join and continue the discussion there.

For the moment, we will be continuing to use the Yahoo groups for archiving, so don't unsubscribe just yet. Over time we will be moving the files, photos etc out of the Yahoo Groups and either onto the OA site itself or into the Forum, we'll be announcing that process as we go.
When posting on the new forum, please try to put posts in the correct area. Hopefully the structure is clear and reasonably self-explanatory, but do post any concerns in the suggestion box. Mods will aim to move threads into the correct area if necessary, but a redirect will be left its place so you can see where we have moved it to.
Any concerns, questions or suggestions can be posted here or (even better) on the new forum. Of course, you can also always contact any of the OA mods offline if you wish.
