Untitled[edit]

I think I will see if I can find an old MIST player to edit this one sometime. I think MIST has a couple more major firsts, notably being the first game to have an end-game past the point of Wizard as described in http://arch-wizard.com/history.html - I still feel a little odd writing it myself so if anybody wants to volunteer then feel free :) Lawrie (talk) 19:02, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

Oh, and if it hadn't been for MIST there would have been no AberMUD, VAXMud and all the rest - I'd up it at least medium importance! Just because it's old and was closed down before being ever really written about on the Internet doesn't mean it didn't have a fairly hefty impact. Lawrie (talk) 19:05, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

All edits should be sourced by primary and (preferably) secondary sources. So from that perspective the best way for you to contribute would be to add more articles about MIST on your homepage, and eventually they should find their way to Wikipedia, Mudpedia, etc. Regarding VAXMUD, Richard Bartle classifies it as a 1987 MUD1 inspired MUD in his mud report.

There is a lot about the history of MIST on http://arch-wizard.com - source enough? :) Lawrie (talk) 04:17, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
If we source from there it's not going to stand up to challenge. Write a book already! :) —chaos5023 (talk) 15:00, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
Tsh, who's gonna challenge it? I wrote the thing! And bits of Vaxmud and Abermud, come to think of it. Oh I put a link to the MUDDL documentation on the MUDDL page by the way. You may want it for your collection. And it's the closest I have to a book! Lawrie (talk) 03:20, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
