CMUD and zMUD Icon Bidding for 2011
|LAST DAY! Bidding ends TODAY, Friday Feb 25th, at 8:00pm Eastern time (5:00pm Pacific). This is your last chance to get an icon for your MUD added to the CMUD and zMUD startup screens for 2011.
For detailed information on what a "CMUD/zMUD 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.
Each year we hold an auction to determine which ten MUD icons get displayed in the initial CMUD and zMUD 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.
This year I have made a couple of changes to the icon bidding:
1) I am no longer limiting the icons to only 10. So any bid over the $1000 minimum will get an icon for their MUD this year.
2) A single bid can be used for multiple MUDs that are controlled by the same organization. This allows organizations with several MUDs to bid without worrying about their own MUDs competing with each other for slots.
Both of these changes should make it easier for MUDs to get an icon.
If you have questions on the bidding process, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let the bidding for 2011 begin!
