Getting a user name


Some Moos allow people to get themselves a 'user id' or character without any condition attached. Others review requests befog giving out new user ids.

The standard procedure for requesting a user is:

  1. Connect to a MOO as 'guest' (no password required), enter:
        connect guest
  2. Request a character:

       @request-character <name> <email-address>
       <name> = a name without blank spaces <email> = a regular email
       address, confirmation and a password will be sent to this address
    Note that on some MOOs, additional questions may be asked by the registration procedure.

On some MOOs characters can be created from the login screen with the 'create' command, but on most MOOs this is disabled.
