I have been looking a little on (I hope you forgive me :) LPMuds.
There is an orginization called 'The Center for Imaginary Enviroment' 
that acts as a hub for different LPMuds. They have a www/ftp site with 
sources to all kinds of drivers and mudlibs. They also hosts some muds, 
one of them called 'The Idea Exchange', which is a mud run in the purpose 
to give LPMuds admins and wizards a place where they could log in and ask 
questions about/discuss things about (guess what... :) LPMuds.
It is not restricted just to 'coding' (low level mudlib coding) but also 
If someone has the time (and resources) to put up such a mud, I think it 
would be greatly appreciated, both by "experienced" people (like me *hum* 
:) and newbie coders.

Well, just my small thoughts...
