Greetings Programs!

I wanted to take this time to post about the Mud Domain IMC2 Intermud Network. We believe in the principles of free speech, free expression, and of course, having fun! Got something on your mind? Need to vent? Have a question you need to ask? Just feel like chatting? Drop on by.

So Samson, what is IMC2 anyway?

IMC2 is a chat protocol which links several muds together in a network with each other. It allows them to have a common ground for discussing ideas, airing greivances, and just to mingle with their fellow community members. Players and staff are all welcome to join in and discuss anything they see fit to discuss.

Oh, isn't this something that requires another port? I can't afford that!

While this was once true, it is no longer. None of the recent versions of the client code used to connect to the network require you to bind another listening port. So you don't have to worry about your hosting bill going up. Though you should still find out if it's alright to open outbound connections to other networks to be on the safe side.

Ok, but aren't there other networks I could join?

Yes, briefly those networks are: MudWorld, ICE-MAN, and Intermud-3. All current versions of the IMC2 client code are compatible with all IMC2 networks. Intermud-3 is a separate entity which uses a different protocol and thus would require a different client to connect. Mud Domain has chosen to follow the example of Intermud-3 and allow anyone who chooses to to freely connect at any time they wish.

So why should I choose you over one of those others?

At Mud Domain, we believe in the value of free speech and expression. No healthy discussion can ever take place without these ideals. The members of Mud Domain are all treated as equals, from the newest of newbie players, to the most old-school of old geezer mudders, to the very core administration of the network itself. Members have respect for each other and as such we have no need for lengthy written policies. While some may find this odd, we have found that when everyone is treated fairly and equally, things just flow smoothly on their own. No member of Mud Domain is lesser than any other. As long as you aren't doing something to damage the integrity of the network infrastructure, you are free to express yourself as you see fit. We also strive to promote diversity among the population of codebases and muds who are members of the network. We feel this adds more to the pool of potential discussion and can only enhance our usefulness. Full membership is granted immediately upon connection, no need to fill out forms unless you have an older client installation.

Excellent! But doesn't this mean anyone can log on and cause havoc at will?

Of course not. Like any civilized society or organization, we do have things we won't tolerate. Usually this is limited to anything which could damage the network. The code being used has several methods in which to enforce action against individual users or even whole muds should the need arise, but thus far no such action has ever been required.

GREAT! I'm convinced. How do I join?

First you will need to find out if your codebase is compatible. While the code has recently been expanded to cover most Diku related bases, we have not reached everyone we'd like to yet, so you should check the Mud Domain webpage to see what is supported. Perhaps your codebase is derived from something close enough that adapting it would work.

Second, you'll need to get a connection to hook up with. A list of routers which are currently available can be found at: http://imc2.intermud.us/intermud-connection.php. You need only plug the information for the router into your IMC2 code using whichever method is most convenient for you. Then configure your mud's information and connect! That's it! Welcome aboard!

Sweet. I'd like to find out more.

As of this writing, the most current version of IMC2 is the AntiFreeze CL-2 client, and AntiFreeze RT-2 router.

For information about Mud Domain, go to: http://imc2.intermud.us
Our client code, AntiFreeze, is available on the download page: http://imc2.intermud.us/imc2-intermu...-downloads.php

For a list of features for the AntiFreeze version of IMC2: http://imc2.intermud.us/imc2-intermud-features.php

We look forward to having you on board!

Point of clarification our competitor feels necessary to continue to misrepresent:

The most current IMC2 client code available at this time is the AntiFreeze CL-2 code. A quick check of both sites and their release announcements will clear this up once and for all.
