Submitting a Review?
« on: February 06, 2018, 2:19 AM »
I'm trying to submit a review for a MUD. After previewing and submitting it on the website, the review was sent to my email for a 2nd preview (?). I've tried following the instructions to confirm that yes, I want to submit. But nothing seems to do the trick.

Instructions I received:
"You must send back this entire email with one of the boxes checked in the options below if you wish to accept this submission with or without changes. If you wish to reject this submission there is no need to return this form."

I've tried hitting reply and copy-pasting the entire email with a box checked. I've tried hitting reply and editing the contents of the email chain to check the box. I've even composed a new email with my submission confirmation in it. Nothing gets any results.

It's been a couple days since I started trying to submit a review. Is this just how long it takes for it to go through? If so it would be nice to get some kind of confirmation that I'm doing this right.

I think the procedure normally takes some time, because all reviews are checked for content before they get posted.
So my advice would be to stay patient at least for a few days, but if nothing happens in a week's time mail Icculus at admin@mudconnect.com.

It can take a couple days to a couple weeks.  Sometimes he saves them up and posts them at the same time.  I have not seen him in some time, so my guess is a couple weeks.

No worries, it's finally gone through.

The instructions need some updates though - it specifically asks to insert linebreaks every 80 characters (and I did so) but that makes the reviews look super wonky. I think it might have actually looked better if I disregarded the instructions.

You are right, that is an old instruction set as 80 characters is the standard line break on the old 640x480 monitor which an ancient standard. I don't expect that to be updated anytime soon. If you do it right it shouldn't be formatted poorly.

It was the same on the listings, i believe i emailed Icculus back in 2013 (when the sites look changed) and he removed the line length restrictions.  So perhaps throw an email to admin@mudconnect.com ?

the reviews formatting issue appears to have been fixed :)
