    Hey everyone, it's been a while. :)

    So, as Quinn seems to have disappeared for the time being (taking the MUSH with him, unfortunately), we currently have no access to OgreMUSH. Ogreman and I have been talking about possibly starting a new MUSH until we can get ahold of Quinn and put the other one back online. Is anyone interested in helping out with this?

    We'd need a team of people to start building the world, for one...as I was the only builder in the last MUSH, things didn't exactly progress quickly. For anyone who doesn't know, OgreMUSH was/is a text-based MMO that a few of us were working on over the summer. Playing requires a basic knowledge of game commands, but once you get the fundamentals down the rest of the game's code comes pretty easily; furthermore, players can create and 'program' objects to act certain ways. It's definitely more open to possibilities than the traditional MMO. :)

    However, we'd have to start from the bottom up here. If we can get enough people to help out, we could go forward this and have a really neat thing going.

    Here's the link to the original OgreMUSH thread for more information: http://www.gameogre.com/forums/ogres-hall/7290-ogremush-gameogres-own-mush.html

    Julein, it requires no experience with coding whatsoever. :)

    I wonder where Quinn went? it's like he disappeared completely

    I may be willing to help out if I can. I must warn you that while I know to set up an mmo, I've never actually set up a mush or mud. From what I remember I already had a problem getting to connect with ogremush, due to poor software on my comp.

    I am back! The server shall be back this weekend. I have some thoughts about the current MUSh that I will post soon, probably tomorrow when I can think straight.

    (For those techincal minded, it was running on a UNIX computer server and using the PennMUSH codebase.)

    It's a text-based MMO, basically. :)

    I still can't access it, for some reason. It keeps refusing my connection.

    Okay, I tried to get on the server, and I can't even get on to log in to my account and restart the MUSH. It refuses my connection every time. I'll keep trying over the next few days, but we may have to look for new hosting options. :-/

    EDIT: Contacting Customer Support right now, I wonder if they are still alive.

    That's what's been happening to me for months, which is why I thought you had taken it down. Good to know it's not just me though.

    I think he did say something at one point about the GO site hosting the MUSH. Is this an option, ogreman?

    Yes, it is:). Quinn and myself need to discuss this.
