Avalon provides three mechanisms for you to give feedback that may influence future development:
Syntax: BUG <text> or BUGHERE <text> and BUGS.
REPORTING BUGS: Telling us when something in Avalon is not working correctly or one of your abilities or commands does not function as it should.
Both BUG and BUGHERE allow you to log the specifics of some error or malfunction in the Avalon gamesystem, the only difference being BUGHERE also automatically records your current location (often useful when bugfiling typos in a verbose description or if the problem relates to a certain room). Try to keep your bug text succint, comprehensive and imagine it is being read by somebody as part of a long list, who does not know instantly the specifics of your personal circumstances. Inclusion of an EXACT text quote from Avalon helps hugely when referring to a bug since it allows "problem code" to be pinpointed more quickly.
You can type BUGS at any time to see outstanding bugs reported in your name and should keep an eye on UPDATES for public info on fixes/amendments your entry may have brought about. See HELP BUGS for full command list and category info.
Syntax: TOP <bug number>
Tells Avalon and the administration the bug number you specify from your list (see INDEX <your name> is the most important listed; the one you would most like to see fixed or resolved. When it has been dealt with, you will be able to select another etc.
Syntax: IDEA <text>.
LOGGING IDEAS: noting suggestions for improving Avalon or proposing an addition to the land.
We are always happy to receive ideas for additions and improvements to the Avalon gamesystem and over the years countless excellent contributions have been made by players of all role-backgrounds. The IDEA command, like BUG, requires you to be succint but inclusive in the space of just a sentence or two. See HELP IDEAS for more detailed info on submitting ideas/suggested additions to Avalon.
Syntax: BB, then SECTION COMMENTS, then WRITE as you would a regular post.
COMMENTS FORUM: Using the Avalon bulletin board "Comments" section to write private, confidential messages to the administration.
The "Comments" bulletin board section is an entirely private forum, ready only by the Avalon administration (not even the Gods have access by default). It exists for whatever use you deem appropriate: typically out-of-character issues, complex bugs, comments, criticisms and observations on areas of the gamesystem that may not be functioning correctly or skills/procedures not satisfying their purpose. Anything you want.
NOTE: e-mails to email@example.com are likewise private and confidential.
See also: HELP BUGS for full command-list on bugfile entry, review, rating and categorisation; HELP CATEGORIES (abbreviated to HELP CATS) for info on category indexes specifically; HELP IDEAS for more on submitting ideas or additions to the Avalon gamesystem and land; and HELP COMMENTS for more detailed rundown on the writing of detailed comments to the "Comments" BB Section or Avalon Support e-mail address.
Remember to keep a regular eye on Avalon amendments by typing UPDATES, to keep up-to-date with the latest "for public consumption" fixes, amendments and evolutions in the gamesystem.
