BOARDS



Bulletin boards are the forum of inter-player communication on the MUD.

There are different bulletin boards for different purposes; for example,

a standard mortal board, a board for immortals, a board for a specific

guild, etc.  Naturally, not all players may be allowed to read all types

of boards.



Type LOOK BOARD to see the messages already posted on a board.  Type

WRITE   to post a message to a board.  Once you are

writing your message, you may type '/h' to read a list of editing

commands you may use, and type '/s' to save your message and post it

on the board, or type '/a' to abort the message and remove it.  Later,

if at any time you wish to make changes, you can use the POSTEDIT

command.



Once you have posted your message, you type READ <number> to read a

post number.  Type REMOVE <number> to remove your own messages.



Lastly, you can change the level of any of your messages, to allow only

those of that level or higher to read them, by using the POSTLEVEL

command.



Example:



  > look board

  > write board Am I using these boards correctly?

  [Write the message; terminate with a '/s']



  > look board

  > read 6

  > postedit board 6

  > remove 6

  > postlevel board 3 67

  [Makes it so only level 67's or higher can read message #3]

Usage: board list
       board add <board vnum> <board level> <board name>
       board del <board vnum>
       board change <board vnum> <new board level> <new board name>

This command can be used to add, remove, change or list the existing
bulletin boards around the game.  To list the existing boards, use
BOARD LIST.  To add a new board, the existing board object must have
already been created, then use BOARD ADD along with its parameters
to add the board functionality.  Deleting a board removes the
board functionality, but retains the actual board object.  It WILL,
however, completely remove ALL posts ont he board itself!  You can
also change the board's level or name using the BOARD CHANGE
command.  The name is the actual filename used by the game to
reference the board, but will not be accessed or used by the
players.
