if u can't can't then i don't know why but i do know that all ports are open and others have connected from world wide connections….
Meyham, your not going to get anywhere asking everyone to do all the work for you. Most people who come here are running their own mud regardless. Take me for example. I'm working on on my own mud as well, it's going to take me forever, but I know that putting in allot of time and hard work and effort will pay off in the long run. I learned about compiling a mud from Gammon's website, hand patching code from tbamud's website, which is good for learning how the new code is implemented, and I've expanded on the patches that I have put in as I have learned more. I learned how to build by dissecting stock areas, and have taken out all of those to replace them with original areas that players won't get bored with once entering the mud.
I don't even know what you want to do with your mud. What is your plan? Do you have a theme? Is it a PvP mud? Do you have an idea of how you want the areas laid out? Until you have a plan on what you want to do with your mud, and are ready for the long hall by learning to be efficient by yourself or on someone elses mud, then you probably won't go far. I'm not trying to be rude or anything, its just how I view this situation
yea exactically… let me make this very clear… for those with rather hoarse attitudes about my post… i'm not asking for everyone to do all the work… i know code and i know how to code… i'm learning byproxy how to run a linux host as well.. starting from scratch with the circlemud code just means i'm using the base… and the reason i'm using this base is because its a stable C enviroment.. i think everyone just misunderstood what i was speaking about.. i know how to build i know how to code i know how to do everything on my own.. however i'm looking for some help experienced or not… i can teach as well.. so don't take my words the wrong way please :biggrin: thanks … Mayhem
Not to appear harsh, and no offense intended, but it's your job to make sure your posts are understood. Your posts are rather terse and appear to be written off the cuff as you're running off to do something else. If you would like people to take your posts seriously, it would really help to make it look like you're taking things more seriously. Also, the link Crat gave is very good reading – I strongly suggest that you read it.

yea i read it… not to sound new or anything.. i have done this several times and things have changed a bit… i remember the good old days when people would respond rather quick to just a link… lol … but i guess people are looking for the more respectable enviroment because they don't want their work to be lost due to poor administration and i understand that… so to do without the presence of lack of knowledge… i strongly suggest anyone who seeks a position that i have availible to be adamant about making there presence in this building process.. if your not as serious as i am the find someone with a lax provision to their codebase…..
Well, as Crat's link said, the main idea here is to help you get more positive feedback to your questions, not to flame you. Nobody here meant offense, we're just trying to make this kind of thread more productive. Sorry if you aren't happy with it, I'll stop now…..

no problem… i fell into a habit of using drugs… went to folsom prison for 4 years and lost all my previous content … i don't mind sharing this information because its plyable to my new way of living… i'm now more stable and grounded and i want to find a way to contribute to the mud community…
Personally, I am warrant to believe that when people post (constructive) criticism in regards to anything like immortal ads or just adverstising your MUD in general it is worth taking it on board as David, Kavir etc all know what they're talking about. The intent is to try and help you make your posts more appealing to prospective staff which in the long run can only be good right?

That's sort of the main question I had… if your goal is to have a godwars-like mud, why not start from godwars and change it accordingly, rather than starting from something on the other end of the spectrum and re-inventing the wheel? If you wanted to write it from scratch (REALLY from scratch) to avoid licensing issues, that's one thing. But if you're starting from CircleMUD, you're just exchanging one license for another, and they're not all that different.

My reasoning is simple… on one hand i love playing godwars … on the other i'm so firmiliar with the circlemud codebase i just see the potential to strengthen my coding abilities… now i'm not the greatest coder in the world but i do fancy myself as average.. i see it as a true challenge… can't be bad… but my true insipiration is a game that was once live called ToTs Twilight of The Souls a circle/godwars mud that was so fun it was stupid…
