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.
It is recommended you use
report, which is visible only to the
Valar, in case confidentiality is required; e.g., 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.
news 2361 for the original announcement.
- 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
