Well, okay - I should have said, "if you interested in your mud growing
at all..."

I completely understand wanting to be discriminating about who is involved
in your community.  But I don't think that low publicity is necessarily
the way to do it - mud-dev has managed to keep a very cultivated crowd
despite relatively high publicity (public website, searchable archives,
et al).  It stays "elite" due to the efforts of the administrator.
If your admin is willing to put in the same effort on your mud,
you can get the same effect - filter out all the chaffe and being
left with an influx of fresh faces that have a lot to contribute.
