Quote from: Adhira on February 28, 2013, 08:25:18 PMWhen I first started playing I kept notepad up alongside my mud window where I'd record all the sdescs alongside their names and nicknames. I came here from an LP mud where I could remember everyone by a name I chose. Eventually I did decide that I didn't care to do that anymore and that if I as a person couldn't remember the name that went with the sdesc then my character didn't either. But that's an entirely personal choice. You may want to follow the idea of keeping notes as it really can help when learning the ropes.

You may wanna lower that to your 40's. I keep notes too... then I forget what I named it or where I put it anyway... cause I'm in my 40's.Welcome to Armageddon!
Quote from: manipura on March 01, 2013, 12:16:55 AMFor general game-related info that isn't character specific, I tend to keep notes and whatnot on the computer. Either whatever Word-type program I happen to open or just Notepad or whatever. I'm really more of a pen-and-paper girl though. I would prefer to have all my game notes in a notebook but it would be such a time-consuming event to move it from the computer to paper and I just haven't gotten around to it yet.For notes specific to a character though, I tend to write it down. When it comes to keeping track of other characters, I'll usually write their name and short description and maybe a little blurb about who they are or how I know them. I don't do it for every single person I come across, just people that I've interacted with or will have a reason to interact with in the future. If it's someone that I wouldn't particularly remember, or I wouldn't have a reason to remember, then I'm not so diligent about it. I also find it especially helpful to make a note of someone's name when I interact with a character with a particularly...unique spelling.My character related notes and contacts go in this book:

Quote from: quinnr on February 28, 2013, 08:13:37 PMHow in the world am I supposed to remember all these people's names? Does one get used to all the introductions and such or is there some in-way game of storing the names of all these people I'm supposed to be getting familiar with?
Quote from: JustAnotherGuy on March 01, 2013, 12:16:57 PMI utilize Google Docs extensively. I hvae a Arm folder setup and I create a doc to keep all my character notes on when I create a new character which I name the character. When the character dies or whatever, I toss it into my Character Archive folder.
