Talker codebases[edit]

It seems odd to me that "See Also" points out to NUTS, but in the article itself there are no references to talker codebases - specially when there's a section about "Talker hosting" (which, IMHO, is a lot less relevant). In particular, and like MUDs (and you can see how's the MUD wikipedia entry's architecture), talkers' "public" is (and specially "was") really interested in one specific codebase or another: NUTS' users would typically go to NUTS talkers but not to ew-too ones, and vice-versa. If you read the old discussion entries, you'll see another person commenting about this, stating "what might be useful would be a page specifically discussing each major codebase. The history of talkers is almost entirely a history of programmers trying new things out. There was an explosion of talkers after PG+. How did that affect the culture? Also I find it difficult to address NUTS with ew-too quite so much, so i would like to see a division there somewhere. While cultures tend to be similar, technically they are quite different. SU levels, command interfaces, and so on are examples. So I suppose one page could be open to discussion of the each branch, perhaps, with external links to where codebases can be downloaded." Replace "page" with section, and you get my point. Marcos Marado (talk) 16:59, 13 October 2010 (UTC)
