Something there in that sentance just doesn't make sense.

Let's use an example. Okay, you gots 3 coding fools that want a mud. SO 
they go out, get circle, and start modding away. Before long, you can't 
even recognize the code as circle based. So they show it to someone, and 
get a site. It's a very cool mud, and because they have no/little 
creative ability when it comes to building, they use OLC to let some of 
their players build. Their mud rocks, and rolls alog for awhile. But then 
there is a clash of player opinions. The 3 people don't know what to do. 
Sure, they can code in a new feature, but they can't for the life of them 
calm down the people. So now, whenever you go on, it's mass chaos. 
Everybody is taking sides and going nutz. Sparks fly. Nice mud? for a few 
people, yeah, but I for one don't like the gossip channel burn up from 
flame overload. 
The point here? Yes, 1 or 2 or 3 CODING imps are needed to create a good 
mud, but you need other components to the administrative machine if you 
want the mud to work.
