The following review is the opinion of the review's author [jimbro] and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.

I spent (wasted) a few hours reading up on this MUD's lore (there is
quite a bit of it) before creating my character. Chargen is a bit of a
Kafkaesque hell, though noting the game's atmosphere perhaps that's
intentional, but after I got in things seemed to run very smoothly
with intuitive controls and layout. The world is original, unique, and
charming which is why this mud is such a waste. The staff are rude,
abusive, drunk with power and not afraid to show off just how much
they have over you. Unplayable.

I'm not aware of your exact situation but I'd like to apologize for you not
being a good fit with the community as we've established it. Sindome is an
RPI MOO where if the code doesn't restrict you, common sense and a sense
of fair play are expected to carry you through a situation. The majority of
our staff actively play the game with their own characters so they get
subjected to the same harsh experiences every other PC does in our dystopic
little world.

If you'd like, mail me directly and I can take your specific
feedback about the staff members who you felt were rude, abusive and drunk
with power, I'll use it in our team training. We're all volunteers and
humans with feelings, so we're not perfect little support staff who are
polite and civil, but we do want people to have enjoy their time RPing with
the community.

Ah...I don't agree with you, jimbro.
I am playing this game since October 2015. I'm the bored type,
switching from Mud to Mud. When I found Sindome, it was 'Ah...end of
the travel. We have reached our destination.' I can't lie, I'm
almost addicted to this Mud hehe ^_^'

Upon creating my character, I read the lore, and it was very
interesting (I didn't waste my time) and it was a good reading. I
used the timeline to make my background history and so on. I was new
and I didn't find any difficulty ( I did but I got the map :D ), they
have game help channels, xm and xhelp. Of course, if you confuse OOC
and IC, even players will tell you so, most newbies say 'thank you
for the information'.

And NO, admins and GMs are not the way you described them, at least,
for my 8 months RPing there (There are players who play since a more
long time than me).

GMs were really nice with my newbie character who got stabbed by a
character (Was my fault though).

You should read the RULES to make sure you don't make a mistake, and
we all do, sometimes admins remind us to read a certain rule.

I accidentally made a metagaming when giving the name of the
character without knowing it IC. The staff wasn't so rude heh :D

They asked me if I knew the name IC and I said no, and it was all.
But it made me understand that I wasn't supposed to know this name
without asking.

Anyway, I didn't make this mistake again. AND I'm still playing, I
didn't say staff is drunk.

There is common sense, don't be mad because things don't go your
way, observe how the people behave, try to integrate into the system.
You will see it's a nice Mud, there's no one like this.

You should give a try because staff can't behave the way you say and
players are still there playing, and voting. I'm sure there's a
misunderstood somewhere. :)
