The web site is great for existing players, but if you're in the shoes of the guy who just though "alright, so I'll follow the link to that website".. [/b][/quote] You're absolutely right. Foddy and I are in the process of radically re-designing the website for other reasons. This is a perfect opportunity to make it more newbie friendly. [quote][b] It would be great if we had a customised client. [/b][/quote] Yes, agreed. [quote][b] I would be willing to put some time in to create a client. For my tastes it would have to be cross-platform as I use purely Linux these days. [/b][/quote] This would be great. I know that there are a small number of players who use Apple Macs but have trouble using the existing clients. A good client that would work across all computers and operating systems would be excellent. [quote][b] How does this sounds? Do people have ideas as to what would make a mudii client better at hooking newbies? [/b][/quote] The problem is that a Diablo-esque client would have to be downloaded which isn't in itself newbie friendly. Ideally we need two new clients. One to replace the current Java applet which is, to be honest, pretty crude. This is the client aimed at newbies. The other client will be the custom-made Diablo-esque client which will appeal to recent newbies and returning players. [quote][b] If there is enough interest we could start a seperate thread to discuss it. [/b][/quote] I think that's a very good idea. As they are closely related I am going to start a new thread about new clients and making the site more newbie-friendly.
