Well, I'm aware that the possible causes of a link loss are NetSplit (heh), a carrier loss of a player who's dialed in, and a program interfering with the MUD's operations. I've added in the LOGOFF and BYE commands to compensate for MBBS.. if the people can't read the forums, too bad for them; they'll continue to use QUIT all they want, and it doesn't hurt anything. I think that's as far as I'll go until the ops here know enough to change the QUIT command. I was thinking, as I wrote before, about including a 'link disconnect' command, but I agree with you now that it would lead to cheating. The new commands should suffice.
