TheMUDs.org essentially is my gift to the mud community. It takes the
information in the InterMUD V2 and V3 databases and resolves them to
DNS entries and also provides web forwarding for I3 muds which have a http
port. I provide these services as is and without warranty. Hopefully
this service is found useful. Any emails to that effect are always welcome.
Granted I don't get much time to work on this site, but here are some highlights:
- Web forwarding now works for any URL
- New and improved look
- Much more usable Mud List
- Conflict report to aid administrators
|Welcome to TheMUDs.org!|
- Mud List - Detailed list of muds,
their information, and their assigned DNS names. This page is very
large (200k-300k) so have patience.
- Conflict Report - List of MUDs that
- Error Report - List of MUDs that
idon't get DNS due to some error.
To be usable as a domain name, the mud names have been stripped of all
characters other than alphanumerics (a-z, A-Z, 0-9) and hyphens. To make
things more readable, colons are converted to hyphens. Sorry, I had
to disable all Unicode muds, no mangling was good enough to make a
usable and useful name.
The names take the form of:
Due to the name mangling strategy, a few muds with differing names have the same
DNS entry, because of this when using the IP name, you will get a random mud
between all ones with the same name. I cannot and will not fix this; to resolve
this, one of the muds MUST change it's name in a way to generate a different DNS
name. If however, you had a distributed MUD (and all nodes on the same port), this
would in fact be a nice feature.
