BUG, IDEA, REPORT, TYPO
reportcommands to send messages to the maintainers of the game. An editor will open (use
%eto finish if it's the built-in editor) and let you write a long text. Add a short summary/title after the command:
>Please note that
bug I can't move east from here>
idea Fish should be cookable>
typo Hill giant description>
report Lost my account password - help!
typomessages are visible to all the Ainur; and
bugmessages are visible to all Mb+.
report if you want to keep something confidential. They are
only visible to the Valar. For example, reports about
suspected cheating, reports about significant bugs that
could be easily abused, and requests about lost passwords; or when you could
not reach a V+ via pray.
GuidelinesThese commands are valuable to the Ainur. Here are a few basic guidelines to follow, to make the best use of them:
- Make your comments concise and clear. There are often pages of messages containing these reports, and to read more than a few paragraphs is simply out of the question. Simply state your point, but be thorough. If you can, include a short log, for example:
- There is no need to state whereabouts in Arda the room is you are posting from. That is recorded and displayed in your post automatically.
Use a subject. Type in the subject, in a few words, after the command. It
makes it easier to read; e.g.,
bug orkish chieftain isn't aggressive to good races
- Use the correct command! Any "bug" which only involves the wrong form of text being output is a typo. And if it is confidential, it is a "report". Please remember this :)
MUME is based on Tolkien's
(British) English. Some words, like recognised, may seem strange to
American English speakers, but are not typos. Check
http://www.m-w.comif you are in doubt.
- Do not repeat your report. If the bug or typo is still remaining after a few days, there's no need to rewrite it. It will be fixed.
Type the command followed by the title of your report;
bug Shopkeeper's prices are too high
Now the line editor opens and you can explain the
problem in detail, for example:
To send your report type
%eon an empty line, to cancel the report
Also, if it is an idea, you must check
noidea first to see whether you are wasting your
time. Any idea which is ruled no-idea will likely be silently discarded.
