The Final Goodbye

Hey all,

The staff and I have talked about this and have decided that it’s time to end NewHopeMUSH.

The reason for this is both complicated and simple. Let’s focus on the truth. The truth of the matter is that people have lost interest in both running and playing this game.

When I lost interest, I took a step back and let Alias run it. He tried his best and found multiple people to help. In turn, they too lost interest. In the end, there is only one active staff member, besides Alias and myself, and that is Leia.

The truth of the matter is that it takes a team to get a product off the ground. We lacked the help to do that. In this way, the project failed to move forward.

I, personally, have learned from this. I believe the others have as well. As such, I don’t count this as a failure but, rather, a success. Learning something helps us grow.

If nothing else can be said for this adventure, let it be said we learned and grew from it.

I want to thank each and every person, staff or player, who has contributed to NewHopeMUSH over the years. Thank you for your time and your support.

Sincerely,
Jeffrey (Kimojuno).

Update Staff Post Listing

Hello!

Welcome back!

We have a load of changes for you, the reader! For the potential player, staff member, and potential involved.

The Captain of Starbase 900 would like to step down. Meaning, we need a new Captain!

The Chief Engineer wishes to transfer to another starbase, so we need some one to step up!

The Chief Science Officer wants to change departments. Meaning we need a new experimenter in the lab!

Think you got what it takes? Think you know the position? Think you can handle it? Apply here:

IC Senior Staff Application

We also have a number of Staff positions open!

Are you a Reddit power user? How about Facebook? Got Discord power? Know Wikia?

We could use a helping hand with all of these platforms.

Know where to advertise for the game, where to find all the good RP’ers? We could use a recruiter!

Are you good at writing? Think you got mad pen skills? We want to challenge you!

Open staff positions: Builder&Coder, two Writers, Moderator Team, Social Media Administration / Moderation, and Game Recruiters. If you’re serious about it, join us in discord, and talk with us about how and why you should be made a team member today!

What  is expected of staff?

A single person may out for several roles at once. Don’t hesitate to admit you can’t handle something. I’d rather you decide to step down from a position you don’t favor then find out you’ve been struggling for some time. Like a single person may take charge of all of the social media, but decides Facebook is too much work in conjunction with Reddit and Twitter, but prefers Facebook, can let go of Twitter and Reddit.

I’d like a semi-formal division between Builder & Coder vs Rules & Mod teams. If only to keep the builders building, and the modders modding. Both Builder Team, and Moderator Team can have as many people as they wish. Moderation team should be kept to a respectable ratio to player base (Once up and running, and open for public play)

Writers keep players engaged. Idea on having three writers, (From **my** point of view.) is to have two main writers, and a tie break should there be a disagreement on something. How story flow should be, I’ll leave to writers… I can’t manage to write my own story in some decent flow style.

Recuiters I’d like to see a new ad or post on a weekly basis, maybe, depending on volume of places that can be advertised on. Active seeking of players would be the job.
Expectations of all* staff:

  • Respect towards other staff.
  • Respect to players.
  • A minimal weekly contribution to the community. IE:
    • Posts to social media
    • continuation of story
    • a newly built room | corrected code
    • new recruit ad.
    • Something!
  • To follow the same rules as non-staff.

Terms of Service & Privacy Policy

Hey all,

I wanted to send out a message to everyone and announce that NewHopeMUSH now has a Terms of Service and a Privacy Policy.

These two documents will, we believe, help NewHopeMUSH in the future. We encourage everyone to read both documents, and should you have an issue with either one, please feel free to contact us at anytime with any questions.

I cannot guarantee that either document will be changed, but I can guarantee that your questions will be heard and will be addressed as best as possible. I also want to thank everyone for the help with the game, and the website, thus far.

Thanks,
Kimojuno.

New Link Structure

The permalink structure for NewHopeMUSH has been changed. It is now /year/month/post-name/ instead of just /post-name/ as I believe this is a better structure, considering how often the post links have been similar recently, and how similar they will probably be in the future.

In any case, the old links will redirect to the new links, as testing has proven thus far. If, for some reason, you do find a broken link then free free to contact us about it.

Thanks,
Jeffrey. 🙂
