Re: [Circle] Just an observation...

Okay, I'm not saying that patching is a good way to IMP a mud but for some
people it's all they can do.  I mean I seen plenty of msgs fr4om newbie
coders asking for someone to point them in the right direction for what they
wanted to do and then people flame them for not knowing the code like the
back of their hands.  Sorry folks but there is a lot to circle and not all
of us are super C gurus who can look at code and instantly know what it
means.  It's come to the point where I don't even want to ask for help
because people don't seem to want to help people create something unique for
their mud.  For ex. Nick B. asked for help on how what files he might need
to look into to make an object(ship) that is enterable, has rooms, and can
be used to attack other mobs, chars.  How many of you have offered any
assistance(looking into the crowd for hands and seeing NONE!)  My point
exactly.  I mean I'd love to spend hours looking at circle code until I know
it inside and out but realistically I have to work, I need money, I need to
eat, I need to pay bills, etc. and working 9-12 hour shifts and trying to
get some sleep leaves me with little time so to actually look and learn what
everything does.  I guess what I'm trying to say is that if people would be
more helpful(as in pointing out a starting place) then maybe there wouldn't
be so many patch muds out there.  Hell, the only reason I've stuck to it is
because I'm an anal SOB and I don't give a f*ck if you help or not because I
know I'll eventually figure it out like I have everything else.  Well I
guess that's enough spasing from me.
