Other MUDs and games have many knowledge databases - wiki pages and dedicated websites for items, stats, quest NPCs, shops, trainers, etc.
We do not. Obviously because it would be such a MAMMOTH task to put together.
I remembered, before I went - yknow - AFK for 2 years or so, that I was going to start collecting stats and information and start building a site to hold all that and present it in a clear and searchable form.
I now realise, that's way too big-a-task for just one person.
For starters, the functionality we would want in this requires a nicely coded site. Or we could just set up a wiki page, that could work? And maybe then people could assist in inputting information....
I know it would be great, and be great for help files too. Sometimes I forget commands, or maybe a player wants some suggestions or ideas as to what equipment pieces they should try to look for, etc.
As long as the information doesn't give away quests, and sticks to the informative side of things, I think this would be a really good idea...
I may keep working on what I already have, at the very least - I'll end up with a nice little 4D Handbook, which should be helpful considering I always forget everything... :p
