It would please me a helluva lot if somebody would answer these two questions:
1.know anybody who is an armageddon mud staff member, and if so..pm me
2.If it's(armaggedon mud)open to players. I've submitted an application a day, since I haven't gotten any reply. Maybe it's just my email addy? who knows..but it's not a hotmail addy..and that's all they say doesn't work. So  I dunno. If you get the chance to respond to my question, and are in the mood to, I'd appreciate it. If not, then I'll just wait patiently for a staff member to reply to my email.*sits patiently at his desk**hum**hum*hum*

Well I'm not a staffer, and I don't know your e-mail address. But if it's a hotmail account you need to tweak something to allow it to let mail come and go between you and mud@armageddon.org

It has something to do with spam - hotmail thinks anything coming from arm is spam.

You might also post on the GDB - at www.zalanthas.org in the "ask the staff" section to ask if they can help you from there. Be sure to register - you can post as a guest, but they can't send PMs (private messages) to guests.

If you are using hotmail, and have some other e-mail address you could try using that instead. It's very possible they've tried to reply to your app and got the reply returned or rejected if hotmail refused it in transit.

If it's not hotmail - I have no idea what to tell ya. But definitely get on the GDB and see if they can help you. They read that much more often than they topmudsites, since the GDB is their baby

I'm not Staff either, just a Helper.

When you submitted your application, was it for an account or a character?

The account applications are automatical, as far as I know and come pretty instantly. If it doesn't the problem is likely with your e-mail filters.

Character applications can take a day, usually less. There is one little thing though. When submitting the character application, it is vital to completely log out of the system. You must hit the 'X' before closing the connection or they will not be able to get to your application at all.

Check out Helpers Page, we cannot help with technical things, but we will be glad to answer questions.

Also, when Frostflower says "hit the x" she does -not- mean to click the "x" on your client. DO NOT do that until you have -typed the letter "X"- from the menu options to exit the game.

Further - if you are waiting for a character approval (not the account acknowledgement) you could see what the status is of the character application by simply attempting to log in. If it was accepted you'll show up in a place called the "Hall of Kings."

If it hasn't been accepted yet, it'll say "pending" I think, or something similar. If it has been rejected I'm not sure what it will say, but you'll see some clear indication.

So this morning I ran ad-aware to check if I had any spyware on my system or anything.  After a few minutes of checking files, suddenly I get this message:

"Warning!  Internet Explorer is connected to the TopMudSites.com forums!  These forums are known to be saturated with cheap, intrusive advertisements!  Sh!tty-ass muds will even go so far as to pretend to post as players having technical problems, just so they can sneak their advertisements into the Tavern of the Blue Hand!"

I was then told that this problem cannot be fixed through Ad-Aware, but the program offered to launch an "immunization" which would prevent my computer from ever making any outgoing connections to Armageddon, or any of the other crappy muds which use these tactics.  I of course chose yes, and I recommend everyone else do the same.

I'm one of the admins of Armageddon, and if this is an advertising ploy, it's not one I'm aware of. We've had a rash of problems with people making accounts from hotmail addresses lately, and I presume this is more of the same.

I understand it's fun and cool to make unsubstantiated accustations like this and I've enjoyed reading some of your more over the top trollings, but this is just plain an outright lie. We pay for a banner ad on here and people post reviews on here fairly often, so suggesting we're so desperate that we're resorting to unethical tactics like this seems a little shaky.

Thumbs down

Erdos...I'd like to say something:
I hope you are a better person than that. Most of the things you post are good. Don't ruin your reputation by **** trolling. And I'm not paid to ask the question. This isn't an advertisement. If you have **** problems in you RL, this isn't a place to vent. If you really need to vent, try throwing a glass or soemthing easily breakable at the wall. Always makes me feel better
