The Mud Connector (TMC) has a long list of muds - now you can vote for your favourite from within Wintin.Net.

The syntax is:

#vote {mud name}

where 'mud name' is the name of your mud as listed on TMC - note that TMC usually substitutes '+' for a space. The name must be spelt exactly as in the TMC listings - mouse over your mud's name in the listings and look at the url if in doubt.

For example to vote for Sloth III you would type

#vote {SlothMUD+III}

Note that TMC only gives you one vote per machine per day: there's no point in calling #vote too frequently because TMC will reject any other votes. But by tying your vote to an action (maybe entering or leaving the game) you can make sure you don't miss a day.

You can download it here

just double click on the file to install it.

Loading error, please reinstall:
ICsharpCode.core.addins.addininitilization.exception. Could not load addin file. c:/programfiles/www.wintin.org/wintin.net/addins/voteaddin.addin
exception got:system.reflection.reflection typeloadexception: One or more of the types in the assembly were unable to load.

Then it tells the spots of trouble I think but I cant figure out how to cut and paste the error report so I guess I cant use the vote addin.

Sorry, I'm not quite sure how that happened, but the dll I uploaded seems to be corrupted.

I've replaced it - please try downloading and installing again, and it should be ok.

thanks

OK, I can see what's going on now. There was an earlier problem which I fixed, but now .Net is being very strict about the version compatibility of Wintin itself and the addins.

I can see various approaches to this but I want to read around the subject and make the right decision, so it may take a few days.

Thanks for your perseverence and patience.

Well I have some bad news, while the voting option does work now and follow the necessary links, TMC fails to register to the votes for some reason.

Just installed the addins and they seems to work. Didnt check yet if they register votes or not, i had voted today already, so guess i cant check till tomorrow. Something i noticed is that vote is case sensitive. So ...

#vote {SlothMUD+III} <--- works
#vote {slothmud+III} <--- dont work

well, it does look as though TMC have changed a few things - hence the 'it doesn't work' issue reported above'

I've updated the code now. Linsey if you uninstall and download the new version, you should find after you vote that the scores in the TMC listing go up straight away - but only once in each 24 hour period of course.

thanks

William

Unfortunately TMC have changed things since I wrote this, and I'm not going to be able to get the addin to work now - so I'm going to withdraw it from the download library.
