I was just curious, not really requesting or anything, if there are plans to eventually have either a database for MUD Listings, or if there may be forums dedicated toward promotion or recruiting staff, etc.
If not, that's fine :p This site will be a great help to those of us who wish to either contribute code or download some while avoiding the oppressive nature of some other sites.
Still doesn't hurt to mention it again. It actually might be a good idea if they can find someone willing to make sure the listings are up to date, and dead MUDs are purged. I've found TMC's listings to be very innacurate.
yes it might be a good idea actually especially since from the sounds of it certain places are not doing a good job of listing muds ( places i myself once used ) so maybe at least giving them a run for there money might benefit this sight
Actually, when this project was first proposed, that was one of the things that was suggested, but the majority at the time weren't in favor, some of us still are and have made that known already. However, that being said, I'll also state that for my part, I'm satisfied with Vladaar's new site standing in for the purpose because my mud happens to be smaug based, but I still also think it wouldn't hurt the community in any way for us to have a mud list as well. If Samson decides to let us, he already knows that my mud will be listed as soon as I know that it's become an option. ;)
But even you must admit that it was one of the suggestions I'd pushed for when this site was still in it's earliest phases of inception, and at the time it seemed like the rest of our little band wasn't interested in establishing a mud listing section. In some ways I still think we should have, but as then I will still cede to the majority since I can still get my mud listing accomplished at Vladaar's new site instead. It just benefit as wide an audience this way since he's only catering to those of us running smaug based muds. *shrug*
My mud's already open so I look for every listing opportunity I can get, though I'm not big on posting player/staff wanteds in forums myself.. and I have only written one snippet to date, but I'm trying to stay an active and contributing member of the community as well as I can, so expect more snippets eventually.. but I'd be happy to help out with the listings side if there's something I can do that needs to be done for it.. assuming Samson decides to go ahead with it afterall. ;)
Timing I'd imagine. The users online only reflects users that have loaded a page in the last few minutes. Been watching people blink in and out all night…
While that'd make sense, I'm more inclined to think it's not showing her to me and me to her because, like she said, we're at the same external IP so it's showing each of us ourselves but not the other. Because even if we actually try to refresh the page at the same instance we still find it shows us the same list but with her name on her screen and my name on my screen.
