Sayonara Web Request Forms!

Praise be! We've dumped the online request forms, once and for all!

Most players probably don't realize just how much of a headache the web-based request forms were for those of us on staff. They served their purpose well enough for over two years, and by that token they were a good thing... But they funnelled the request information to an E-mail account that has been plagued with some of the most reprehensible spam mail most of us have ever had the misfortune to read. Even the SUBJECT lines were offensive.

The online forms also created problems in other ways, most notably when we'd get Narnia fans on the site who assumed the roleplay was a forum-style roleplay, and then couldn't understand where the game itself was after they registered. We obviously didn't mind sitting down and explaining the way the game works to them, but in most cases the prospective player in question was left uncomfortable when they learned the game wasn't what they expected, and ultimately the time-consuming effort of educating them proved to be a waste.

So... we have revised. We are in the process of setting up an online telnet client that will work better than our old 'log in' link does. We've revised our 'About the Game' information to make it easier to navigate and understand, and we've moved the character requests to an ingame request system that will be more convenient all the way around.

I'll post more on how it works in due course. In the meantime, if you want to request an alt, just type 'request' and have at it. Let me know if you run into any errors.
