I like healing for runs, but I dislike wandering around the mud, waiting
for a run to organize.
What if someone had a site that hosted a database allowing players to
plan runs? You could post where you're planning to go, when you're
leaving and what team members you're looking for. Other characters could
then sign up for the positions available. If the position has been
filled, they could volunteer as an alternate.
Like eBay, this system could also manage character reputations and
provide a feedback system, so you could tell who never shows up on time,
or who can't be counted on to share the loot without a fight.
I think such a system would require you to log in as your character, and
I don't know how it could be sure the character was really yours when you
created an account, but it's an intriguing idea.

Aha. Like lots of sites that email you your password when you
create an account, this site could utilize a bot that would mudmail
your password to you, so only someone who could access your
character on Legend could successfully create an account for you.

Nice idea. You wouldn't have to wait for a run to be organized, and
you could be rid of all that pesky interaction between runs. I like it.

I think people would try to screw over runs, and a lot of people
like to just do simple 3 person runs, or whatever, and not advertise
that they are going. I think its a good idea, but that it will not work
put because A) some people will not bother to check the board to see if they
are taking someone elses run, and B) some people just dont care. It's
like making an appointment to use an area of Legend...

It would work well for KZ, though, I think.

I have to agree with Romaltha, I do not think it
would work. Some people here are rude enough
to not care one bit about this cool website, and claim
that since they were here and organized everything,
wasting their time interacting with others, they have
dips on the area, instead of those smart enough not to
waste needless time being here, but simply using the
website to organize things.
It is the same thing when someone says they need
this or that mob on channels. That should absolutely
give them dips on that mob, instead of the guy/girl
wasting time in that mobs room, waiting for repop.

Wow fraegis has something up his backside. Way to launch into an
offensive for no apparent reason. It was a cute idea.
