Administrative Ethics / Re: Ateraan is NOT Newbie Friendly!
« Last post by Zephyrwind on Today at 3:06 AM »
You see this type of attitude in all walks of online gaming. Players like this are self entitled and any negative response is seen as a personal attack, so they will quit a game. Since MUDs, MUSHes, and other games of that style tend to feature more player/creator interaction, Staff on those types of games will actually get the direct brunt of that childish temper tantrum. Instead of a BBoard post on some commercial game's website.

Also people think that since they are taking time out of their day to play your game, you should cater to them, which is a wrong way for a player of any game to think. I prefer the stance of 'This is what you get, deal with it or go away.' I'll always listen to mature questions, but anyone who acts like a 10 year old while being in their 30's - 40's is a waste of my time, and any team I happen to be working with.

Or... it could just be a troll that wanted to upset people, wanted a small reason to post a bad Review... which if that's the case, I'd try the game myself just to respond to them.

Here's the map, but there's more about space on the site itself.

NewHopeMUSH, a Star Trek-based MUSH, is looking for builders and code. We are set in the Star Trek universe. Anyone who is interested can contact us through the form on our website.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force.
As if dozens of voices suddenly cried out in outrage and were suddenly silenced.
I fear something terrible has happened.

Off the top of my head, I recall two incidents on my own MUD's Ask channel recently that went very much like this from the asker's end. Both times the discussion, which started about something very simple like "Why can't I play X race until I've gained enough hours played?" ended up with long strings of foul language and even very personal attacks against the answerer and our community in general (I'm just grateful the Ask channel isn't global, at least all the casual players don't have to deal with it).

The best response to this sort of trolling, or whatever one should call it, is to remain respectful and pleasant as best you can throughout, even if it might be incredibly difficult to do so. Failing to keep on that high road only gives them a win in end. But ya, feel free to show them the door too. In response to "F*** all you guys and your terrible game - it's a joke and I'm going elsewhere. Your all a bunch of dumb***es and blahblahblah...", I answer, "Yes, a different game is probably best for you. Have a nice day. :)" and close out the channel.

It is strange, though, that I've seen relatively so much of this inexplicable (inexplicable beyond just trolling, anyway) behavior on multiple games lately. I hope it's all coincidence and not, like, one or a group of players just trying to ruin everyone's day.

Mud Staffing Board / Re: Seeking creators for Stillborn
« Last post by sunkeneyes on November 18, 2017, 7:22 AM »
i'm looking for people who can help either build, write lore, or create content in general (monsters, items, etcetera) for Stillborn, a MOO exploring themes of surreal/Lovecraftian horror, post-apocalypse, and some elements of dark fantasy. i'm hoping to attract someone capable of writing morbid/disturbing stuff that manages to have some meaning outside of 'creepy to be creepy'.

So something like Don't Hug me I'm Scared?

you're actually not too far off -- exploiting innocence is a great idea but it's not like stillborn takes a visage of something innocent like don't hug me i'm scared does.

Hah, cracking up!
Wow, there are some players you're like 'wow, really glad we're not a fit for you'.
Smile, laugh, and be glad that griefer moved along to some other mud (and hopefully not mine! lol).

Keep doing what you're doing guys :)
