The Mud Resource Collection

The MUD Resource Collection is a list of links to many useful sources of MUD information. The links should be of interest to both "normal" users of MUDs, as well as to researchers studying MUDs and related forms of computer-mediated communications. These pages are provided as a service to the academic community.

This material Copyright 1994-2002. May be reproduced in any freely distributed medium, so long as URL and credit are given.

The main pages of the Collection are listed below.
o Key for the Colored Bullets
o FAQs and General Information
o Research-Oriented Links
o MUDlists and MudWHO
o Web Servers and WWW Interfaces to Games
o FTP Archives
o The Almost-Complete List of MUSHes (Extended Format)

The graphics on these pages are limited to colored dots; due to the number of accesses these pages get, reduction of images and the size of individual pages decreases the load on the server (and is friendly to a variety of browsers).

The MUD Resource Collection's pages have won a large number of awards, which one day I may add a page to display; they include one of the very first Cool Site of the Day awards (for 10/29/94), Best of Campus '95, Snap! Online (CNET) Best of the Web, and Top 1000 Sites on the World-Wide Web. It was, to my knowledge, first listed as a cool entertainment site on 9/16/94, by the InterNIC Scout Report. I consider this a triumph of substance over form in a day and age where webpages are frequently high-glitz, low-content.

Thank you all for supporting the Collection!
