What a terrific forum. I've just come across this website for the first time. I'm a very long-time Infocom fanatic, and I've written Inform 6 and 7 games, and published some books, and stopping this sentence now, because it's more ego-like than its writer actually is, and appears to be enough by way of shy introduction anyway.
In past years, I wrote some articles about the Zork
trilogy and the original mainframe Dungeon,
which have been read by close enough to nobody as makes no odds. Would this forum be a good place to post them, just for fun, or is there already more available tangential Info-prose than anyone truly wants?
Another question. This bit of the registration process is a bit spooky: "You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any laws be it of your country, the country where 'The Zork Library' is hosted or International Law. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned, with notification of your Internet Service Provider if deemed required by us."
My goodness! What would those wrong things be? Has this ever happened to a forum member? I'd hate to have my ISP notified that I've accidentally sexually harrassed everyone by, for instance, typing "member" earlier in this paragraph.
Thanks for this site, and for reading my silly and verbose self-introduction. I find it's impolite to just pop up on a new message board without letting anyone know what one is doing there, if he should perhaps be lynched straightaway before he can do any serious damage to the English language, etc.
I can't see the Gnome of Zurich anywhere!
