Ask not what your MUD can do for you, ask what you can do for your MUD. Get out there and vote people!

Slow and steady wins the race. I'm so glad to see that our consistent voting is pushing us deeper in the TMC Top 10 as early-month enthusiasm for other games dies off.

The link, because the new layout may be confusing and some folks might've missed Harry's post. With the forum being different, and not showing the reminder link at the top, our voting turnout will likely be lighter than usual. Please remember to vote guys, we have to compensate for how hard it is with greater fervor! We're in the #2 spot, let's try to stay here or climb to #1!

TMC has reset totally. The button above is back, but will not work at least for the immediate future. (The site seems to suggest it will work again.)

To vote on TMC, please go to the main website and convert your account by following these steps:
1) Navigate to http://www.mudconnect.com/
2) Select Menu (top right on header) to open menu options on the left hand side of your screen or select the person icon (center of header)
3) Select login and login as normal
4) Select the person icon (center of header) and follow the instructions to convert your account
5) Vote manually

Here is Iccy's post on the new TMC forums about the change.

Thanks, Harroghty. The new site is a giant PITA to navigate but I managed eventually with your help.

I can't remember whether we have any active screen reader users aside from myself but just in case: The icon to which Harroghty referred will show up to you as a link labeled cgi-bin/login, above the menu button. Just search for the first instance of login on the page; that's the link you'll need to convert your account.

As well, when voting, the site no longer takes you to a new page when you hit the vote link, but rather super fancily (and super inaccessibly) adds to the page's bottom portion a block of text which your screen reader might not detect (JAWS doesn't, anyway). Once you activate the link, just navigate to the last heading on the page. The button to confirm the vote is actually not a proper html button so may seem to you just like normal text. Hit enter on it as you would any other button, and you should see it replaced with the confirmation message when you read the line again.

Hope that helps. It took me ages to figure out what was going on. Woohoo for screen reader unfriendly content.

I'm sorry to hear it's not user friendly for you Areia. It'll probably turn off a lot of people from Mudconnect, considering Blindness isn't so uncommon among MUDders as some would think.

For ease of access, this is the link to FK's page on Mudconnect.

It's been awhile, and we've slipped to 19th place. Let's try to get good about voting again! The link below brings you to the game's page on Mud Connector!
