Question about updating the MUME wiki:

How much information should be allowed?

After taking... 12 years off from the game, I expected there to be a lot of info about it online. There were some things about the game that I vaguely remembered and I needed a refresher for, and I was surprised to see how tough it was to come across answers on the net.

I began to ask myself if this was a conscious decision on the part of players/gods to promote roleplaying, which is cool, but it can also be might frustrating. After 12 years, trying to remember how many ****** to give to Olly so that he will give you the ******** to the ***** ****** ***** wasn't working out for me. Even now I feel weird writing about it, hence the editing.

So, What if I wanted to write a wiki page about the situation mentioned above? Is that too much information? Should that kind of stuff remain hidden until revealed by another play in-game? It just really surprises me that no one has though to flesh out the wiki, and I can't believe that's the case.


tl;dr Is everything in game fair to write about on the Wiki?

I don't know the exact line between ok and not-ok, but generally guidelines about how to do different quests or smobs appear very common online. The only thing the Powers That Be have been very crumpy about are maps with secret exits shown on them. So, I mean, if instructions for how to do Giant's quest are ok, then the situation you describe should be as well. Then again, I'm not V+, so I'm not 100% sure about this. :)
