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).

Server Downtime

Hello all,

There was approximately seven hours of downtime today. This was due to an issue affecting the physical host that NewHopeMUSH resides on. Due to this, our provider had to take the server offline while they resolved the issues. This was beyond the scope of our ability to control and, unfortunately, due to security concerns, no prior warning was issued.

We understand that it is helpful to know when these things will occur but, unfortunately, we were unable to provide any notice due to the emergency maintenance.

As such, if there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to join us on our Discord at https://discord.gg/zhcCMFd

Thanks,
Kimojuno (Jeff).

Server Maintenance Completed

Hey all,

The scheduled maintenance from our host server is completed. This maintenance was required due to security concerns. As of 5:00AM Eastern Time, the server, game, and clients were back online. Everything should be up and running. If there are any issues, please let myself or a member of staff know.

Kimojuno.

MUSH Restarted

Hey all,

I had to restart the MUSH a few minutes ago. The downtime lasted less then a minute. I thank everyone for their patience. All should be good now. Remember the server will be rebooting tonight for the host server’s upgrades. That will be around 7:00AM UTC (~2:00AM Eastern).

Thank you,
Kimojuno.

Upcoming Server Upgrades

Hey all,

Our host server is upgrading the server due to discovered security issues possibly affecting the host machine. The server will be taken offline at 7:00AM UTC on January 19th, 2018. The downtime is expected to last no more then two hours. If we are needed for any reason, you can find us on Discord. The link for the Discord is https://discordapp.com/invite/zhcCMFd

I apologize for the short notice but these security concerns make it important for our host server to take these steps to ensure the security of our individual server and the data it holds. As always, I thank you for your patience and understanding.

Kimojuno.

New Staff Member

Hello all,

We have a new staff member! Please welcome Doctor to the team! He will be helping to building space objects and work on ASpace and helping us create new ships, space objects, etc!

Thanks,
Kimojuno.

Hiring Staff

Hey all,

I’m looking for more staff on NewHopeMUSH. Specifically, we need coders and builders. I am also looking for people to help create and run TPs, which would be a huge help as having someone focused on TPs would be a huge relief for me and other staff.

If any of this is something that interests you, you can apply at https://www.newhopemush.com/ooc-staff-application/

Thanks!,
Kimojuno.

Poll Results

Hello all,

The poll resulted in the players leaning to allowing sexual roleplay in private areas. As such, the MUSH rules have been adjusted to allow such.

NewHopeMUSH is a game for anyone over the age of eighteen (18) years of age. If it is discovered that a player is not over the agre of eighteen (18), that player will be banned immediately. The reason for this is that sexual roleplay is allowed in private areas of the MUSH. Sexual roleplay can only occur in private settings and nowhere in public areas. Should sexual roleplay be engaged in public areas, appropriate steps will be taken. This could range from IC issues, for example a character being written up, demoted, etc, to OOC sanctions should it be determined as needed. Please note, however, that when we say ‘sexual’ we don’t mean kissing or other such Public Displays of Affection. We are talking about engaging in sexual acts.

It should also be noted that, although we now have a place to post logs (the wiki), this will only be logs that were recorded in public areas (e.g. non-sexual logs). This is two-fold: Logging a private roleplay without permission isn’t proper and, further, sexual roleplay is only allowed in private areas.

Moving on, I have also spoken with players on Discord and we have come with the following Starfleet regulations;

0) Before initiating in an intimate relationship with a member of unknown or non-federation alien species or its allies, a crewmember must get clearance from both their CO and the CMO.

1) Although any member of Starfleet may date one another, any and all interactions must remain professional while on duty.

2) No personal relationship, romantic or otherwise, may interfere or affect decisions made involving their position and/or duties (e.g. affecting or changing the duty roster, rotation, or otherwise interfering with the day-to-day operations of their post).

Thank you,
Kimojuno.

Voting Required

Hello all,

As of right now, the poll is currently leaning toward allowing sexual roleplay in private areas of the MUSH. If you have not voted, please do so so that the Alias and myself can get an idea on what people think.

Please note that, should the final response be yes, then we would need to make sure all players are 18 or older. If someone currently playing is not 18 or older, and the vote passes, then that player would not be able to continue playing.

If you would like to discuss this further, please @mail me on this accou nt or on my Tinyplots (Kimo-) account. You can also contact any staff member on either the MUSH or our Discord.

Thank you,
Kimojuno.

ASpace

Hello all,

We have ASpace installed on the game now. This allows for us to create and use space objects (ships, starbases, planets, etc) in the game.

If anyone has experience in using ASpace, we would love your assistance in getting designing and implementing softcode.
