Hey guys! just a reminder to vote and a big thank you to those who do! You are the ones who put us in the top muds!

We're running a very tight battle for 3rd place in the rankings on TMC and could use all the votes we can muster to put some distance between us and the other mud.

Yep. I just tied us for 3rd, but because they got there first, I don't think it updates us. We need more. MORE!

Last couple of days our voting numbers have fallen off quite steeply. Keep up with your votes every day it takes less than a minute and is a great way to keep drawing in new players to the mud.

Indeed! Some of you may have noticed, that for older players, the "economy" has been a little weird. Lots of coins floating around, maybe a little inflation?

Well the best thing to fix that is new players. New players bring in ideas, RP, balance, and flavor of every kind! They're like an oil change in an old jeep!
So vote, vote, vote!

Just a reminder to everyone, voting really helps our wonderful home grow in players and ideas! Each and every vote on each and every day really makes a difference as placings in the top ten are always very close in vote numbers. Thank you to everyone who remembers to vote and who works hard to keep this place growing. Another big thank you to those who strive to uphold strong roleplay to teach our newcomers the excellent roleplay skills that the veterans have gained through years of play! To you re-homed players out there (like myself), welcome home- I hope you'll enjoy your time here as much as I have.

What a long thread!

You might want to consider adding a link to vote for FK on www.topmudsites.com as well. I know at least a few of my fellow mudders use that site to browse when they get a hankering to try something new. It's dominated by those ridiculous pay-for-perks/to-play muds, but it shouldn't be too hard for FK to find itself in the top 20 or top 10.

SHAMELESS BUMP.

It's in the queue on the website testbed, just hasn't been brought over to the live site. I vote there once daily, and it's enough to keep us at about 75th. If a second person did the same, I'm guessing we'd be up at about 50.

I'm an every day voter too. And my wife votes at least once a week. If we could get even a few more daily voters...we might be able to keep 3rd solid...next stop after that: The world!

Please remember to vote, higher placement helps with intake of new friends!

We gotta keep up the voting ladies and gentleman! It really does help to get exposure on websites like TMC.

Thanks for another good review here from a new player:

http://www.mudconnect.com/cgi-bin/prev/ ... ?rid=32546

Remember, if you like the game, then please add a review in addition to your voting. It will give prospective players some food for thought.
