The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Ambroise]
and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.
[-][OOC-Chat] Staff Cerberus: Just like to make another appeal to the community. If you're not aware,
we've received some negative reviews on TMC from banned players and in the absence of positive reviews
, they stand out a lot. So if you've had a positive experience with SD and the Staff, please feel free to
post a review on TMC so we can avoid losing potential new immigrants to the exaggerated claims of a few
If anyone is curious while Sept 8 sees an uptick in positive responses it is because the staff directly
solicited the assistance. Note that the staff and even some of these solicited comments/reviews presume
that there are 'bad players' leaving these reviews. Anyone who has been around the block a few times can
already see the early warning signs of a tone deaf administration and players either acting with blinders
on or benefiting from staff approval... or hey maybe they do enjoy the game but never felt like reviewing
it before or didn't know mudconnect existed.
When I played sindome I found the game to be enjoyable. I thought it was weird that you couldn't ask
about syntax questions. For example I have an item, it is clearly meant to do a function, but I do not know
the syntax and it is not in helpfiles... When I inquire about syntax I am instructed to find out in game. Well
I'm not sure how very roleplay intensive the idea of ICly asking about code syntax is. Futhermore Cerberus
(the staffer soliciting positive reviews) was once removed from Sindome for causing a general player
outcry on a third party forum. It was only months later he was allowed back and is now back to the same
antics that got him removed in the first place.
If Johnny was an active roleplaying owner or Slither has time from his busy daily life, I'd be willing to put
dollars against pennies that Cerberus wouldn't be a GM/staffer on that game anymore. Sadly as is
common with a lot of older games those with free time and a drive to be active rise to the top and their
issues are glossed over, ignored, or apologized for because despite some staff (not just Cerberus) being
toxic they do a lot of work and the game probably wouldn't function without them.
I suggest everyone try Sindome, it is a unique MOO, and it is a great place for RPI refugees from other
games to enjoy themselves. I generally give people anywhere from 3 - 5 months before
community/administration problems will drastically affect their enjoyment of the game.
