Muddled Times was due to come out last month (October) but I have had to delay it so I can devote my time to the new mudii website.
Muddled Times will probably come out in December instead. So there's still time for you to submit articles.
Also, if anyone would like to offer their help in the development of the new mudii website please feel free to contact us. This is taken from Foddy's post here:
Thank you to everyone who are already helping, but we are looking for more people to help with the development of the website in order to complete the site rapidly, in particular:
- People to develop "modules" for the site - preferably with knowledge of PHP.
- A graphic artist to help with some artwork for the client, probably cartoon-style.
If you're interested in helping, please mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Out of interest, why don't you just use the xml client already made that Umbrarg made? It's professional looking and HIGHLY newbie friendly. A lot of time was put into developing it, and it's better than anything I've seen so far - and I don't feel that 'cartoon style' is appropriate to the mystique of mud. His also allows for different skins to be applied to the client.
Just seems a waste to put time and effort into something when you already have a pretty much perfect client sitting there, which works superb and is suitable for old players and newbies.

The client I mentioned is for the website to replace the java telnet applet that currently runs when you click on the "connect now" button, rather than one that's downloaded.

As far as I'm aware, the link to Umbrarg's client has gone dead, which is why it's not listed.
I think it depends on what you class as cartoon-style - what I had in mind requires crisp clean edges, which would be suited to someone who has a more cartoony style, rather than someone more into brushwork ... you can tell I'm not an artist, can't you?
