> at all, is irritating my major customers enough that they complain, =
Ask your major customers if they'd rather have to complain to you or
be given the power to handle it themselves. And I guarantee they'd =
be able to filter that person rather than have them kicked/banned. To =
that person will be kicked/banned because they can't hear them and don't
have to worry about that person.
Granted I don't run a pay MUD, and I never have. I've contributed =
many open source developments and will continue to do so while at the =
time developing my own open source codebase. I think one of the other
spectators of this list hit a good point. Make annoying players want to =
on your MUD and make them want to pay for airtime on public channels.
Have an almost TV type atmosphere. I'm sure a couple of the people you
banned would love to have a Jerry Springer channel, an I"m sure you'd =
loads on the TVs you'd sell in the MUD.
Honestly, don't use the few people who pay to play your MUD as an =
without asking them what they would prefer. I'd certainly pay to play =
MUD, but I sure as hell wouldn't want to have to ask you to ban someone. =
in your MUD living the life thereof, I don't even want to talk to you =
administration. To me thats like having a world with one hitman. And =
being a paying customer and someone else being rude, I'm allowed to get =
shot. No, wrong, give me the power to filter this person. Keep them =
owned premises in the MUD, block out their voice if need be, or even not =
their messages on a forum. I'd rather have the power myself then leave =
the "All Mighty's" hands. And I'm sure some of your paying customers =
same way. People don't pay to be babies on a MUD.
