But it helps.

Again, it helps.

Administrate the MUD, no, run it, so that the mortals are happy, and be
able to innovate and add new stuff to it, YES.  Running a MUD is not like
driving a car.  How many times does your car crash?  Probably not as
often as a MUD.  And in order to stop it from crashing, you need to know
how to fix it.  Just like a mechanic knows how to fix a car.  If you are
just administrating the MUD, and deleagating responsibility to those that
can do the jobs, it's ok.  But if you are delegating coding
responsibility to someone who isn't a coder, that would be like asking a
non-mechanic to fix your car.

 I'm working on a DG Event to randomize mob for it :)
