single user dungeons[edit]

It would be sensible to add a section on the single user role text playing games, that preceded MUDs. DouglasHeld (talk) 12:37, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

That's what the "Early History > Origins" section is. —chaos5023 (talk) 15:06, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
Blank and redirect Multi User Dungeons and Dragons. Merging was found to be inappropriate as the content in the other page is dubious and poorly sourced.

I propose to merge Multi User Dungeons and Dragons into this page, MUD. That article is about 13 years old and mostly an unsourced stub. I think that the very limited content in the "MUDD" article can easily be explained in the context of this page, and a redirect to this page would make more sense if people were looking for information about MUDDs specifically. - - mathmitch7 (talk/contribs) 15:39, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

I think you should just redirect it without worrying about the limited content, which is not supported by sources and is largely incorrect. - MrOllie (talk) 16:18, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
I concur with redirecting without merge. Jclemens (talk) 22:36, 9 May 2021 (UTC)
I see no harm in a redirect, but I don't think there's any information worth merging. In his book Designing Virtual Worlds (page 5), Richard Bartle stated that "The "D" in MUD ... has nothing to do with the role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons". The only reference I can find to MUDD is that it was "a typographical error" in a code comment in the original MUD. KaVir (talk) 11:46, 10 May 2021 (UTC)
