Patience vs Exclusion
« on: March 08, 2013, 7:19 PM »
I've submitted my Mud (avisionmud) but have noticed other
Muds posted after my submission, have been added to the
New Mud Listings. Its been aproximately a week and was
wondering, do I need to be more patient, or am I being
excluded for some infraction i'm not totally aware of.
I've sent Icculus a email, but no reply.  Any ideas,
suggestions? I'm able to connect via the supplied IP, but
since im within the same Lan, I am not 100% sure that
the Mud is fuctional. If any one wishes to let me know
if they can connect, I would be most appreciative.

avisionmud -> 67.188.136.44

It just takes time, relax. The ip addy you provided wouldn't be enough to connect, need to supply the port number that it is running on. However, I was able to ping 67.188.136.44 successfully.

NO, actually, I using IP forwarding, so the port isn't
required, although its 4000. Try both methods if you like.
Really would like to know if the Mud can be reached. Thx

I would doubt you are being excluded.  I think Icc is just busy, I sent an email fairly recently
and he didn't respond, about changing a banner ad.

I doubt you are being excluded though.  Emails being what they are though, it may have slipped
through the cracks.  Maybe send a gentle reminder to him, and hopefully you'll be in business
soon.

I'm assuming no one has checked but I'm unable to connect to your MUD. I tried without a port and then with 4000 as the port.


%%% Connecting to 67.188.136.44 on port 4000.
%%% Disconnected from server.
%%% Error Connecting: Connection timed out
%%% Retrying connection to 67.188.136.44 on port 4000.
%%% Disconnected from server.

I tried this around 1 am eastern if that matters.

You may want to stick to port forwarding instead regardless of this connectivity issue.  I'm assuming this is a home router vs a computer behind it?  You might want to just forward your mud's access port (4000 right?) and not the rest, such as SSH or any other services you don't want to expose to the internet at large yet still access locally.

Exactly my contention, though I thought maybe TMC requires
the posting of the port address. But this has almost become
a mute point, since my MUD isn't being listed. With out
feedback from Icculus, I can't make reparations if they are
required.

Ok, appreciate your efforts. This explains the omission of
my Mud. I was trying to be able to connect without a fully
qualified domain name and just use a dynamic IP, which for
for some reason, never gets reset. So at least the IP is stable. Thanks again.

Ok, I have possibly got it working and now requires the port
number. IP: 67.188.136.44 4000.

With all the various Mud Clients out there, there still may
be problems connecting, but I think its functional now. If
its a go, then I will re-submit to the Mud Listing, baring
any other restriction I may have over looked. Apparently,
my last effort was deleted by TMC, since I can't locate it.

I was able to connect that time but, I don't think I'd ever make it past that first screen without turning ansi off. Background colors in terminal tend to hurt my eyes, and your splash screen has a lot of them.

Thank you for your efforts, though I believe it offers you the choice
at the very beginning, whether you want ansi on or not. Granted I
allowed the pages to go beyound the normal 80 chars, thinking in
these more modern times, MUDS have matured and the users utilize wider
settings.
