Whoa- Defensive defensive.  Again I was merely making an observation, no evidence of anything at all.  Maybe my choice of words were not the best so let me try and rephrase what I was thinking...

It seems that most games, to stay at the top of the list, have had to come up with some additional code, scripts, motivational schemes, etc to get their players to vote.  Some of these ways, including the ivote code that Medievia uses, do go against the rules.  Other ways, such as the zmud script mentioned, don't seem to specifically go against the rules, but seem to be a bit 'shady' since the user has to do nothing at all except open up their MUD client.  

Maybe it would be worth starting up a new thread on this topic... "How do YOU get your players to vote?"

Everyone is so testy today....  Am I not allowed to post my opinions without everyone jumping down my throat?

Sure you are. But when you make accusations, I think it's reasonable to expect that you back them up with evidence. Your system is against the rules here. Ours isn't.

Fair enough.  My original intention was not to accuse anyone of anything really, just stating an observation.   I apologize to those MUDs who do play by the rules and who were offended by my first post.  My comments were mostly in response to the zmud script that was mentioned as I certainly think that goes against the spirit of the rules here since the people voting aren't even clicking anything or giving any effort at all to their votes.  Hell, if that kind of thing IS acceptable, why don't all the MUDs here use it?

I'd never understand, why?  Because you also think it's a shady thing to do and you always associate Medievia with cheating and all-around shadiness?  I'm sure you and GodWars II would never ever stoop to that kind of level to gain votes.  But, where are you on the voting list?  

If that's not the reason, please enlighten me.  If it is the reason, it proves my observations exactly... MUDs who want to get to the top of this list, especially those with smaller playerbases, seem to have to take certain measures (such as this zmud script) to get there.  (Again, no accusations being made at all, please don't jump on me about that again)

I think the thread litmus test is now off the charts, you guys don't need to be so hostile. I mean, I understand your MUDs are being insulted, but God damn.

Hostility?  Here on TMS?  Never!

(What do you expect?  Once I post or Medievia is mentioned in any thread anywhere and that thread is destined to go down the drain! )

Closed the topic to prevent imminent flamewar! I think everything that needs saying has been said in any case. If anyone wants to start a new thread about getting votes, or about cheating via rewarding, or about the Zmud DLL, please feel free.

Thanks!
