In my experience here, it seems that the negative posts are the ones
that get the most responses...Thus I believe that you have reinforced thes
types of posts...cuz I know I have have past posts ignored
that have contained as little inflamatory information as possible...
until someone put something inflamatory...Go figure

Actually, I very purposefully responded to Whiz's non-inflammatory
constructive criticism rather than the earlier thread. Had Whiz's
post not been there, I doubt I would have put my opinion up at all.
Even so, I should have said more directly in response to his question,
as the next post basically agrees (as do I) that we need more ways
to get newbie information and quest info to new players (yes, without
spamming older players who don't need it to death).
If everything goes as I plan, the innkeeper in Klein will inform new
players that he can provide additional information and will give informati
such as how to get food/water, use mudmail, how to learn skills etc.
upon request. (I hate to put up specific information like that because it'
always possible it won't go as I plan :) Also, the quests in Klein will be
expanded to include more newbie quests and the mobs should be more
interactive and will respond to more keywords (have more hints) again,
I -hope-. I'm doing the hometown update for Klein. I know other builders
plan similar kinds of things for other areas, from adding more quest hints
more interactive mobs across the mud :).
I'm afraid I can only give general information as far as your question on
the welcome board Myriad. I know you it is published and you can do a
web search and get it, but not exactly what you hafta search for to find
it (being as how I'm not overly good at the web). Also I believe it
is contained in the various faqs for the mud newsgroups (rec.games.mud
diku, rec.games.mud.admin etc.) I'm sure Ptah simply didn't see the questi
as it's on an unusual thread, and there are 5 boards that immorts have to
keep up with, just to keep up. (Not to mention the email lists). Some thin
