Are you looking for an updated MUD website or MUD forum?

Hi there.

Firstly, let me tell you a little about myself. I'm 34 years old and from London, England and have had an interest in RPGs for many years now. I have been a god/immortal on several MUDs of various types, the most consistant of which was on MozartMUD. I have also created, run and hosted my own MUD for a few years. I also wrote and designed the web site: Roleplay Games Forums Online although sold this web site to another party two years ago (although the design and content as you see it now is identical to mine - although they have added the Google Ads part to the site).

After that small introduction, I will get straight into the details here to see if there is any interest in what I have to offer (obviously if there is, we can explore the possibilities a little more and provide more details about me). Basically I am looking for a new 'forum based' project and was wondering if anyone would be interested in having me revamp your current MUDs web site and turn it into perhaps more of a forum-based site where members could post messages and comments, etc. (I'm sure you know the type of thing! ).

Anyway, at this stage, I won't go into any more details but perhaps if you are interested at all in this, post a comment here or drop me a PM here with your contact details so we can discuss this more.

Regards,

Ozental (aka Empire)

Thank you for your reply to my post.

I would enjoy if you could help with my MUDS page, however I dont want the whole thing to be a forum. There could be a part of the site, perhaps, that members can goto and enter the forum...

If you think something can be worked out here, please email me at godhead6_6_6@yahoo.com

I would gladly speak with you and see what could be done.

Thanks for the reply back. I think I'll need to decline then at this stage, as I'm looking to make any site more forum-based. Naturally one can include all the typical MUD site content into a forum (like history, worlds, help files, downloads, etc.) should you choose to change your mind.

Do you design your own forum software, and can you design one to meet the specific needs of a client? Sorry, I am unsure if you're interested in just making a forum-based website or if you're capable of designing forums specific to a particular mud.

Thanks!

I certainly won't 'design forum software' as there are many good ones already out there. I would aim to use something like phpBB3 to make a forum-based web site for a MUD.

Re: Are you looking for an updated MUD website or MUD forum?

It would be helpful to clarify for the readers at this point where you're coming from on this. Are you:
  • Offering to work on MUD webpages as a paid project?
  • Offering to work on MUD webpages free of charge for the fun of the project?
  • Offering to work on MUD webpages with the expectation of an administrative role on that MUD?
  • Some hybrid of the these where you build the site free of charge and run your own ads or linkbacks to your own forum/sites?
  • Something else?
No implication intended here that any of these options are good or bad, but if it's clearly laid out you might see more interest.

Sorry if there is any confusion...

No, I'm not looking to get paid in any way ... payment is just the enjoyment of working on a good project.

And no, I'm not looking for an administative role on a MUD, although I guess some level of 'godness' might be needed to I can 'wizjump' around MUDs and gather information.

So as I said, I am offering to build a forum/site for a MUD (preferably one that has some active users and is open to the public) - either on the MUD owner's own server, or on my own server. I won't run any ads or link backs on the MUD site.

Hope that helps a bit.
