The admins of the facebook groups have banned me due to my persistance in trying to make people understand my desire for information preservation. That's OK. I'll continue to provide this site and the tools I have created (MMUD Explorer and NMR). I'll keep pushing on, doing my part to help this community and they can keep bashing me for doing so.
One day the people that have this wealth of knowledge won't be around on the Facebook groups or care to respond to people anymore. While there is an abundance of information on mudinfo.net, there is a lot missing. While the game is old, it still evolves. Without a centralized place for that information, MajorMUD will cease to exist. Pardon me for wanting to prevent that from happening.
I have only ever asked, and continue to ask for 1 thing: For any information that is shared on the facebook groups that is not already on mudinfo.net, please take the few seconds to post it on mudinfo.net so that information can be preserved and indexed so others can find it in the future. This is not limited to game content or development info. It's also important to preserve troubleshooting steps for game clients, board setups, etc.
Ideally, if anyone would like to help keep this community growing, you would do the following:
- Instead of posting your question directly to the facebook groups, post your question here.
- Paste a link to the topic to the facebook group.
- I have made this incredibly easy to do as there is a button on every post, at the bottom-right-hand corner, to post it to facebook. You can also do this manually by just copying the URL and pasting it yourself.
- Profit. Everybody wins.
Thank you for your support.
