Post [Poll and looking for creative minds] Start of a very important project?

Hello again, Forum.
Before you continue reading what i have to say here please visit my first post regarding the topic here on MC and here on TMS.

If you know what I'm talking about already then good, i hope you are interested already because, as ive received feedback on the different MUD-forums, i'm certain that this project must establish itself, and that's quick. Because what I've/We've got ahead of us is a long discussion between the people behind this project. Working with abstract art must always begin with alot of ideas.
But i can not be the only one producing ideas. So i need your help.

This is not your ordinary "Recruiting staff" post. The work that will be done on the project will not be paid for.(At least not yet*sigh*) It must come from a strong determination.

I have made a mind-map online for myself which is supposed to represent a concept. questions regarding topics such as "Character progression","Room layouts" etc. should be answered there.

Though what i would like from you is first of all your help with the poll here, whether you would want to join in on this project or not, it will encourage the work.

If youre interested:
Please email me at Tennisgubben04@gmail.com for more information or if you have any questions, i mean you could also just reply here on the forum. Whatever your speciality might be, if this is something you would want to become a part of, let me know, please.
The concept might seem very vague still to those of you reading this first time. But for you getting involved, after seeing the mind-map and sparing some time to discussion, there will be no worries.

Why do you have two options for yes and one option for no?

Well since a no is obviously definite in this case. A yes is not always a forthright yes."Sure" doesnt mean yes, really..

Re: [Poll and looking for creative minds] Start of a very important project?

"Sure, why not" is just another way of saying "yes."

This is what your poll options really look like:

"Yes, I'll play."
"Sure, I'll play."
"No, I won't play."

It's a manipulative way of taking a vote.

What if a democracy had a ballot that looked like this, with no other options:

"I cast my vote for Candidate A."
"I guess I'll cast my vote for Candidate A."
"I cast my vote for Candidate B."

Right...I tried to explain what i meant in my previous reply. This is what the options actually say:
"Yes,I'll play."
"Sure,I'll consider it"
"No, I wont play"

Please don't put a stain on this thread.

I don't think DA is. 'I'll consider it' is quite different in meaning from 'sure why not', which in English means 'yes'. Perhaps not 'yes!', but yes all the same.

*Sigh*. "Sure" is kind of a "Yeah, alright". Can we agree on that?. My earlier point was only that if you were to vote no on this poll, it would mean no.
Ask yourself the question again, and consider the answer, would you like an additional no?
There's no matter in discussing what yes, no and sure commonly means. I was aiming at this particular polls context.

The point is not what they mean, but that including all three doesn't make your presentation very clear. If you're to have any hope of getting this project off the ground it'll help to make your communication as clear as possible (particularly so given the subject matter).

The threads talking about this 'abstract mud' aren't clear either. He may as well have asked 'hey guys, want to play my new mud?' without any additional detail.

I guess that's why he called it an abstract mud.

First of all, I guess thank you for offering help, but this is not how this is going down. The reason behind this thread is clearly to find people who are interested and when that's done and when core of the creation starts, the discussion that is. Then...only then can i say that we are ready to start developing.
