So, this is a MUX I'm on, and by accident found out somebody else from here is on...

I'll just leave the ad here, Credit to Kestrel Wraith on the MUX for pointing me to it after i asked. Also the ad's in ANSI formatting, sooooo

Things to know:

1. Do +room simple. THis is a lifesaver. I spent a few hours talking about wanting the MUX more screenreader friendly until I learned +room simple

2. Read. The. Wikia. Seriously. Seriously, you WILL need it

3. There's a waiting period before your character app gets reviewed. In the meantime, hang out, do non canon RP in the test area and ask the staff if you got questions.

3. Don't be afraid to ask questions as a guest.

If in doubt, chocolate and coffee. Enough said.

I'm just going to post this to point out.....that....the staff are extremely willing and open to improving things. I've been discussing with the staff about improving things and they're definitely open to feedback. I've suggested fixes and they've been implemented within 6 hours. Admittedly the fix I said needed its own fix but that was a quick one. So, folks, come check it out. THe staf are friendly and good to talk too and the players are friendly too. Don't worry, you don't ned to do to 500000 word backgrounds, and you can test your characters before you commit to one. So, again, come check it out, you may just like it.

If in doubt, chocolate and coffee. Enough said.

And one more update. Been testing things over there and having a fun old time. THere's something amusingly funny about serenading an avacado (no, don't ask....there was a reason). Anyhow my point in posst #1 is now moot as there's now an easier way to do things. So. Again, come check it out...even if all you do is hang out in the nexus and chat with people while not sure what to do. Hey, it worked for me and I'm enjoying it.

If in doubt, chocolate and coffee. Enough said.

Just gonna do another update to say I've been spearheading the accessibility over there after discussing with several players.

So far, there's ben a lot of work in general on the game, and it's got a quick turnaround time. The playerbase do not care if you're blind, sighted or whatever, they care bout having fun.

For example, take a quick read of this, and heed the content warning at the top......I was involved in this and could barely type as it was going on...due to laughing my ass off after the first few poses that is.

Also I've run across quite a few people who have seen the topic on here,  so I thought I'd give it a nudge so it's visible again. So again, you guys wanna check it out, info's up there % I've tried to convert ANSI format to BBcode and given up, though that wiki link in this post has a getting started bit from the front page.

If in doubt, chocolate and coffee. Enough said.
