Re: Builders and coders needed + Appology

I REALLY agree with this.  I personally refuse to take part in the
administration of the mud.  I am the code god, we have a world god, and his wife
the admin god.  Works out really well.  I get to enjoy coding (you REALLY HAVE
TO to be doing this) and they smack the players around.  The world god can code
but the admin god is barred from touching the code.

Well, here is our situation.

1. We have (I even coded in the level) an Owner of the mud.
   He pays for the site, makes the FINAL decision (even though
   he mostly gets the oppinion of everyone involved).
   He also builds worlds, his favorite thing to do..
2. I code most of the stuff and present idea's to him, and code
   in all I can (I am not a TRUE coder, but I can do a lot of things)
3. We also have other builders and have other people help us code
   the things I can not.

Asking for other people to code, build, be a part of the mud is not bad
at all. Leave the guy alone if you don't plan on helping him.

One last note:
Running a mud (Implementing) and Coding a mud are NOT the same thing.
As I have run muds before (in the 2.x days) without coding anything at
all, stock mud. We did build worlds and such.. Now mostly since a REAL
coder is hard to find the job of running the mud and coding it is mine.
The Owner mostly sits back and builds and enjoys what we give him. Thats
what he wants..
