Electoral Rolls, posted on Thu Mar 19 12:06:08 2009

Category: General, Council and Web
I've added the ability to view the electoral rolls through the Player Council web pages. These numbers are fairly close to "real time", but please note that the roster may include inactive, deleted or (possibly) creator/test characters.

A new blog has been added for informal commentary about the MUD - it's called, funnily enough, 'mud commentary'.

Birthday Beats, posted on Sat Feb 28 11:23:52 2009

For all those who don't like cake, birthday cards, blowing out candles and everyone congratulating them, it is now possible to reset your birthday; simply use: options personal birthday = none.

Please note that it is still impossible to change your birthday more than once every 30 days, and this includes setting it to none.

Discworld Quiz Category, posted on Wed Feb 25 13:16:41 2009

Category: General and Quiz
Kaylar has kindly worked on a new 'Discworld' category for Mr Quiz (accessible through the Quiz channel on your talker). Please give it a go and let us know how you like it!

You can start a quiz with only Discworld questions with the '!start Discworld' command.

I've also managed to track down the bug which was stopping the TV and TV/Movies (renamed now to TV & Movies for consistency) categories from working, so all you television fans can get your quiz fix now.

Some new achievements have been added to the game. They are: Bully, The Passenger, Consecrator and I Get Knocked Down.

Needles Mended, posted on Sun Feb 8 17:38:31 2009
Posted by: Kake
Category: General
The small silver needles for mending clothing have had a small upgrape, and can now be used to mend things made out of velvet, and also things made out of hair (e.g. wigs).

Similarly, the heavy-duty needles used for leatherworking can now be used to mend things made out of suede.

Finally, a long-standing issue where the small needles would mysteriously agree to mend certain leather items has been solved; the leatherworking needle is now the one to use for all leather items.

Polling Login Inforn, posted on Sun Feb 8 10:33:04 2009

Those of you who hate the login inform for the polls may now choose to suppress them through 'options output suppress_poll = on'. However, bear in mind that polling is your chance to have a say in MUD development decisions, and as such it's better for everyone if you don't switch it off 'just because'.


Polling, posted on Thu Feb 5 11:35:29 2009

Category: Web and General
Sometimes, we would like to know things from the playerbase, and we don't have any way of putting simple questions across. In the spirit of addressing this, we've added a polling system to the web page (you may have to force a page refresh to see it) and to the MUD (the 'poll' command).

The current poll is just a test - please take a few minutes to try and break it before we start using it for Important Things.



Votes And Topmudsites, posted on Tue Feb 3 16:29:52 2009

This isn't really a development, just a bit of commentary. Perhaps there should be a blog for that, but there isn't (yet).

We managed to hit 3,200 votes last month - we usually hit the 2,000 mark. As a result of your diligent voting, upon the refresh of the site we hit #1 and kept it for a day and a half. Not bad when you consider the #2 MUD at the time has about double our playerbase! You guys rock.

Thank you all for your continued support of the MUD, and remember those of you who want...
