mud reviews?

Is that replacement coming soon, or has it just been decided to do away with them?
It's been down for a few months I believe.

Re: mud reviews?

I think more than that, closer to a couple of years isn't it?
But yeah, probably good for SoI's links hehe. I noticed when I started going 'damn they get a lot of reviews' and realized it was the same one up there for ages upon ages heh.

How, pray tell, would it be "good for SoI's links" and not for the other eight also listed?

That said, it should just be removed altogether since the "reviews" for every game are old and most, if not nearly all, are either fanboys, flames or responses to those fanboys and flames.

Re: mud reviews?

Well I wouldn't say reviews should be removed, reviews are a good thing,
but if not going to be brought back so everyone can post a review to their
favorite mud then yah they should be removed.

Shadows of Isildur was the game that I recognized, as in the thing that popped in my head as I noticed they had yet another review... then saw 'oh yeah the reviews aren't changing' (a year plus ago that is). So yeah, it would be the same for the other static 8?

Did that _really_ need clarification? *boggle* (and yeah, I MUDemoted there ;p)

Re: mud reviews?

Any clarification on this Lasher?

It does give muds that still have reviews on links an unfair amount of
free advertising. Sorry for being a advantage hater.

Re: mud reviews?

With a backlog of new MUD listings to add and reviews older than dirt, it made sense to just have two sections on the front page for new MUD listings and remove the "Latest Reviews" section.

Haven't totally given up on the idea of having reviews yet ... but don't hold your breath.

The "Latest Reviews" list was removed - back in August of 2009, when Lasher last posted. So you're around 4.5 years late in your request.

He never said he'd be removing old reviews from the website; only the listing of them from the front page.
