Hrm. Wonder how will it affect the voting. One of the reasons why a lot of votes dissapeared, is because you now need to have 5 posts on the forums, before the account becomes eligible to vote. Without forums, what happens then?
The song everyone on these boards need to listen once, or twice.
I find it interesting to chat, in general, about a specific MUD game I'm playing. I don't find it interesting to talk about all MUD games generally. I didn't frequent these forums. What sort of things were discussed?
I've never tried a MUD based on votes. Always based on themes. Now granted I wouldn't stay at a MUD when I got through the process and found like 3 players online, but votes weren't what would get me there.
Man, I take a vacation for a couple of weeks and an entire MUD website goes full retard.
Can't blame the moderators for giving up though. Most of those posters had some serious issues. Their choices were either to ban almost all of the active posters or leave the forum completely unmoderated. Neither choice is a good look.
You're not entirely wrong. Most hardcore MUD players are antisocial assholes who are playing a game because the alternative is to live a shitty life. When games bill themselves as immersive, you get people who want to escape from reality. When games bill themselves as giving players the opportunity to do whatever they want, you get people who are inconsiderate of others' ability to enjoy the game too.
qwerty: You cant stop people from talking ooc. And if people talk ooc, it's bound to happen that they cooperate ooc. Or ... or not. But you wont know and therefore, you'll suspect. And this suspicion will kill the game for you.

qwerty: 4/5 times someone rages against staff, staff had nothing to do with it. It's just number one suspicion people go to.

delerak: I recently accused staff of some nonsense. They showed me the log and I felt embarrassed. It's hard to shake the paranoia of days gone by when you were slayed by staff for going afk and using a script to forage wood.

mehtastic: I posted it on the Discord server a long time ago, but unfortunately I don't use Discord much anymore. If you can get a Discord invite you can get the code, probably.

mehtastic: I am back on Discord. If you want a copy of the code dump, join the shadowboard Discord and ask, or DM me: meh#0490. Feel free to DM if you feel addicted to Armageddon and want help detaching yourself from it, too.
