Unhappy

Just wondering, since Mafia Life was removed because it was a browser based game (as in it didnt use telnet) what about the new game on the Newly added Mud List, GWing Freeform? It is also a browser based game.
It even says in it's description:
Description GWing.net provides freeform MUD play, specifically focusing on roleplay. No client needed other than your browser.

Yeah, they say they are a mud, but they are a browser game like Mafia Life.

Mafia Life wasn't removed because it's a browser-based game. The choice of client or communication protocol is irrelevant as to whether something is a MUD or not. It was removed because it had no representation of real-time space, which is pretty fundamental to MUD-dom, whether you're talking about the humblest DIKU or World of Warcraft. It also wasn't a site about MUDs, so there just wasn't much reason for it to be listed here.

I'll try to check out GWing later today.

Checked it out. Certainly doesn't seem to be a MUD. It's horrifyingly un-intuitive, whatever it is. Synozeer has removed it.
