We need to vote.  Buttons on the upper right.  This isn't like the US elections: your votes actually matter here, since MUDs are a small enough community.

Our numbers for this time of year are the lowest they've ever been (well since our record keeping starts in 2010), both in terms of unique logins and new accounts created.  This, coupled with the fact that we are barely breaking #10 on TMC, suggests to me that we need to vote more.

Nov 27-Dec 4 2017: (New) 16 (Unique) 215
Dec 4-Dec 11 2017: (New) 13 (Unique) 194
Dec 11-Dec 18 2017: (New) 32 (Unique) 190

Nov 28-Dec 5 2016: (New) 28 (Unique) 209
Dec 5-Dec 12 2016:  (New) 49 (Unique) 208
Dec 12-Dec 20 2016: (New) 68 (Unique) 209

Nov 30-Dec 7 2015: (New) 57 (Unique) 206
Dec 7-Dec 14 2015: (New) 57 (Unique) 223
Dec 14-Dec 21 2015: (New) 63 (Unique) 231

You can keep going back in the years, but there's a definite trend between higher new accounts created and higher unique logins.  (Source: http://www.armageddon.org/updates/index.php)

We also received several negative reviews on http://www.mudlistings.com from (purportedly) new players.  While I understand that writing a negative review with the anonymity of the Internet is a process in venting, it is still worth reflecting with clear eyes on these reviews to see how we can improve the experience.

Looking at some of the ones that are apparently not even ironically listed on topmudsites, I very much doubt they are as popular as they make out :( it reminds me of webcitation.org/query?date=2017-12-27&url=http://archive.fo/2008.10.17-095925/http://www.bestactever.com/2008/10/15/rip-webrickvoter/ and wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:SPI cases CU complete ... nearly all the ones listed top are ran for profit, and paying $35/month each for a big advert at the top of the page

He held his arm too stiffly and so was thrown back repeatedly, until at last I seized his forearm and snapped it back against itself. His training suffered while the arm healed, of course, but I felt this was a lesson he must learn early, and well.

It's rigged, some of those folks own the site, some of them are bots.  But you know what?  I've seen us take then #1 spot on both TMS and TMC before.

So...... VOTE!

(NB: You can vote TMS once every 12 hrs, and TMC once every day.  Our ranks on TMS/TMC have been shown in previous measures (search "Where players found us" on the gdb) to be proportionate to the number of new accounts created.)

I'm not sure about TMS, but TMC does some weird thing where they don't show you your vote for a random amount of time to prevent cheating or something:
Quote
To curb attempts at cheating or vote stuffing you will not know whether your vote was counted or not. All votes cast are stored in a temporary database and periodically analyzed throughout the day before being added to the validated vote count.
