heh, minding my own business I see this new player log, and from room 1 what do you think he says.

Roufas says 'builder looking for a mud to settle down :D'

You say 'We could use more builders, but we expect people that are interested in working here, to level at least to 20, and get a feel for the game, to make sure they even like it first.'

[11/28 02:35] Roufas said ' well, actually i've been working as head builder before i quitted mudding last year. '
[11/28 02:35] Roufas said ' 10years of mudding experience, 7 as a builder/admin '
[11/28 02:36] Roufas said ' im more keen in building/hosting events rather than playing as a character '
[11/28 02:36] Roufas said ' i know people like Copper. '
[11/28 02:36] Roufas said ' Alander '


You say 'Good Luck finding a mud that wants to hire you out of the box, that is a quality mud. Nice to meet you.'

[11/28 02:36] Roufas said ' cause i used to come from the original dikumud based source and stuff '
[11/28 02:37] Roufas said ' i still have some copies of my workpiece that i've done ages ago '
[11/28 02:37] Roufas said ' and even mud concepts i've stored since a year back '
[11/28 02:37] Roufas said ' area* '
[11/28 02:39] Roufas said ' but if for your case, if you guys are only hiring builders who wants to have a feel for the mud by playing a char to max first '
[11/28 02:39] Roufas said ' i guess i would just pass then '
[11/28 02:39] Roufas said ' well. this mud is based on Diku i reckon '
[11/28 02:40] Roufas said ' if i were to really spend some time here leveling a character, i coulda actually already build something small already. '
[11/28 02:42] Roufas said ' hmm '
[11/28 02:43] Roufas said ' whats your max player count? '
[11/28 02:43] Roufas said ' do any player here play atm? or is this just a mud thats currently being built and stuff like that? '
[11/28 02:47] Roufas said ' well, im terribly sorry that i would love to help build areas, as im looking for a place where i can express my passion for building and stuff like that '
[11/28 02:48] Roufas said ' but to play as a new character to determine whether i like the mud isn't what im looking for. making new areas, impressive ones is the kind of feel im looking for.

I know how it goes, it is because of people like that that I had added a new rule to my Imm application helpfile:


Rule 'D' stands for "Damn Whiners", pardon the language. It applies to
everyone who thinks they can be a special case because of some reasons.
For example, they can't open a browser to e-mail or better reason is 'too
lazy' to apply properly (Note, if you ever even think that remotely, don't
apply anyways, we don't want you.) No special considerations will be taken
with anyone, no matter what they're background are or how much they can
'benefit' the game. If you think your snarky comments about not helping
NarutoMUD hurt our feelings, then you can go brag about it with the rest
of your 14 year old friends. Apply as the rules state, no exceptions given
to anyone.


In my experience, any who isn't willing to fill out a small application. or even stick around and see if the game is the least bit interesting to them, isn't going to be on your staff for long. However, before I put in "Rule D", I'd average about 1-2 people asking to build for me every couple days...but now it is more like a builder app once per month or so.

It does seem pretty weird to want to build for a game without wanting to get any feel at all for the game. Never mind the multitude of reasons, here's one very simple one: how are you supposed to build for a game if you don't know what the game's theme/feel is...?

I can't believe someone with grammar that atrocious thinks they're qualified to be anything but what he's demonstrated. Someone with no clue.

I miss those people. But my personal favorites are the ones that create a character, get past pre-auth, get into the game, and then over public channels that everyone can see be like, "I can biuld 4 u, yes?" to which I always reply something like, "Sorry, I don't speak that language, can you try speaking common for me so I can understand?" or "Srsly? r u srsly askin me 2 do tha?" and occasionally I'll just have something exceptionally witty to retort with, and make them feel as intellectually inferior as they project themselves to be. :P
