You should conduct research on the Internet first,
then ask for help, but be understanding if you don't get an answer
away. Once you
have read the MUD FAQ, help,
and newsgroup files, asking
others on your MUD for help is a reasonable next step:
- Wizards. The people that administrate each MUD are often
called Wizards, and are usually the most knowledgeable about
the game. For example, a Wizard on LPMUD is someone who has won
a game and can create new sections of the MUD.
- Gods. The people who own and operate the MUD are often
called God's, and are naturally quite knowledgeable. They can
do anything they want to the MUD. You can send mail to a God
and ask them a question, but they may not always respond.
- Senior players. High level characters in adventure MUD's
are usually knowledgeable. You can ask them questions and might
get useful feedback.
- Experienced users. People who have been signed on a long
time are usually knowledgeable. You may be able to get more information
that have been on a long time with the "who" command.
Remember not to bug someone who doesn't answer your questions. They are probably
very busy, or have some other good reason, so you should respect their right
to not answer your questions.
