I'm working on a new command which I hope will solve some of the problems and requests mentioned above. Basically, it lets you configure a bunch more stuff about the mud to personal taste. Here's the list of things which I intend to make it do:

- Show banners or not on help files, score, and anywhere else. - Automatically show active conferences (with # on them) when you log in. - Toggle the use of brackets in score display. - Toggle between the current score display and the new proposed one. The brackets and banners toggles would work with both. - Show numbers or words for stats. - Toggle announcing levels on info automatically. - Toggle seeing level announcements on info. - Toggle announcing deaths on info automatically. - Toggle seeing deaths on info. - Toggle automatic alphabetization of WHO. - Toggle seeing tells while AFK or not. - Toggle whether a new "messages" command exits AFK or not. - Toggle whether overrent shows in your prompt or not. - Toggle whether going AFK sends notification on Info automcatially. - Toggle whether going AFK sends notification to the room automatically. - Toggle read next automatically skipping to the next post when it reaches the last append, or just stops with a message. Thanks to Beam, Galron, Lagmonster, and others who have suggested some of these features. Soon as I actually get some time at work, I'll see about adding a CONFIGURE command that lets you set these sorts of options. Oh, and for the curious, I'm planning on making the following the defaults for these toggles... - Show banners - Automatically show conferences at login - No brackets - New score display - Numbers for stats - Annlevel on - Seelevel on - Anndeath on - Seedeath on - Auto-alpha who on - See tells when afk - Messages does not exit afk - Overrent shows in prompt - AFK does not notify Info - AFK does notify room - Read next falls through to next post -Ptah

Humm...hows about a toggle tell command? :) Celebrindal

Actually, yes, a no-tells option makes sense. I'll add it to the spec. It won't be an ignore list, though. Just no tells at all. -Ptah

boy, lotsa options.. how about another, (i've even tried setting this up in my client but failed miserably) :) I'd like to see levels and deaths on info but not the huge spam that follows. ie. filter out chat on the info channel.

oh yeah, toggling whether you're shown on the who list would be cool too.. people can still check if you're on with a tell and i doubt people would use the no-tell option as one usually doesn't wanna ignore tells from "everyone". (even me and i spend most my time OOC ignoring requests for help) -grin-
