It would be cool if the mesmerize spell could go in so that you could
charm people that have either: befriended you.. or if want to install new
code .. have given consent to you.. that way you could order them around
and stuff.. because i know some people already have this kind of code
in their clients, i think it would be cool for everyone to be able
to use though

I am sort of confused. Charm is a really nasty thing to do to another
player, and you want to make it happen to those you befriend? Or do you
mean, what you want is to be able to create "botted" groups, where you
group with friends who are afk?
Personally, I find the latter to be something I'd like to discourage,
because a mud full of automated people is a mud with less people on it,
and therefore less fun.

Well of course this would only go for those not clanned.. cause mesmerize
would be a bit powerful for clanneds..

Daer was talking about how others use clients to set up triggers and the
like, so that their friend's can control them for whatever purpose, and
he thought it'd be nice if everyone could do that, without having to use
a client. People will make themselves 'automated' whether a feature is
created for it or not, he was suggesting that it'd be nice if those not
able to create triggers could also take advantage of it, but i guess
it's tough luck for them eh?

Could also be useful for people in your group who's links die in
inopportune places while they're sitting/resting. Not everyone is
a cause mage with a doovy recall spell...

re Kadiya: A yank command would be more appropriate than changing
befriend. Being able to yank group members who are sleeping or sitting
wouldn't be unreasonable if you weren't fighting.

I had always considered that may be a problem around here..
ie. coders not given enough freedom to do what they feel
without lengthy discussions slowing any progression.
let em get stuck into it!
