Defunct Listings

    We are trying our best to keep the Connector’s listings as up-to-date as possible. This means continual house-cleaning, removing the muds which are not reachable or no longer running. We run a spider daily to help us find the muds which are consistently unconnectable. When a mud is removed from the database or flagged as being unreachable we’ll record the event on this page.

    We welcome mud administrators and other authorized people to submit their mud. Please feel free to use the online submission system to also update existing listings and send us site changes and other similar requests.
