I'm reopening General Discussion and OOC forums. Please be nice to each other.

I'm not going to be monitoring every thread here, so we'll eventually need some folks to do that for us. If you're interested and can be fair to all, please send me a request to be a forum moderator via support@middle-earth.us

Thanks,

Nim

I'd like to be the first to say that this is the best news SOI has had in a long time, and I'd like to applaud this decision to empower the community here.

Well uh...hello. What's shakin'?

Glad tidings indeed. I hope we have all learnt some valuable lessons from our mistakes and collectively can look forwards to building SOI back to what it was - both as a game and community.

No hard-feelings, and while though I understand more than a handful will have them, I'll be just glad to see my original Home-MUD take steps in the right direction. Welcome back, and let's all try and forgive each other any bumps in the road ahead.

What are staff's thoughts on an official SoI Discord server? There are already RPI servers out there that it will be discussed on. Might as well have an official one that can be moderated.

It is pretty nice to see that the boards are back up. What a strange period that was. SoI is pretty much the only internet community that I've been a part of since my early days of internet. It was a sad time.

There was a not-so-brief period of time when I was convinced I was done with MUDS, and with SOI in particular - I even wrote up a really angry post about the state of the game on that shadow Arm board, but then deleted it seconds later because it helped nobody and was entirely pointless.

But as I type this now, I can't help but feel a growing sense of excitement - as with Brian, the online community centered around this game is the only one that I've seen myself as a part of, over the years, and I'm really really glad that it's back.

I'm seriously tempted to play again, though of course, I need to look at the docs and see what's workable for me.
