[IDEA] Entrance Screen

Hey Everyone-

Just wanted to share will all of you what I intend to do to my login 
screen on my mud. I have gotten several emails from brand new players who 
have never played a mud before saying something like, "I need the 
password to play your mud. What is it?" or "How can I register to play 
your mud, it asks for my name and password."

I am either going to add a menu like press [1] to play with your existing 
character, press [2] to create a NEW character. Or I might do something 
like Enter your character's name or 'new' to crate a new character. I 
think this would be much more newbie friendly. I know some muds already 
do this, but based on the amount of feedback I get, I think it's a pretty 
good idea.

   Just though you might be interested,
