CMUD and zMUD Icon Bidding for 2008
LAST DAY! Bidding for the top-ten icons in the CMUD and zMUD startup screens ends on tonight at 8pm EST!
Bidding ends at 8:00pm Eastern time, Friday, Feb 29th. This is your yearly chance to get an icon for your MUD added to the zMUD and CMUD startup screens for 2008.

For detailed information on what a "zMUD/CMUD startup icon is", go to the Icon Information page. For detailed information on how the bidding process for the zMUD/CMUD icons works, go to the Bidding Information page.

To create an account to bid on an icon or to view your existing bidding account, go to the Main Bidding Page.

If you have questions on the bidding process, send email to

Bidding will end at 8:00PM EST, February 29th, 2008. This ending time was changed from the midnight of previous years based upon feedback from European MUDs. This new ending time should accommodate MUDs in both the U.S. and Europe and be more fair to everyone. Sorry (especially to the Aussies) I couldn't think of a way to better accommodate the entire world ;)

Each year we hold an auction to determine which ten MUD icons get displayed in the initial zMUD and CMUD startup screens. This is one of the best ways to advertise a MUD since it puts your MUD icon in the face of brand new MUD players who are looking for a MUD to play. Last year, the startup icons were downloaded over 80,000 times by new MUD players.

In 2008, the top-ten icons that win the bidding process will also be added to the new CMUD client. Since every installation of CMUD will be a NEW installation, the icons will be seen by even more people that before (in the past only new installations of zMUD got the latest icons downloaded).

Last year, the top icon position went for $3000, and the tenth icon position went for $1600. Remember that in case of a tie, the earliest bid wins.

Let the bidding for 2008 begin!
