Description

Help Description

 
Syntax: description 
        description edit

Typing '
description' will show your current description if you have one. 

Descriptions are seen when looking at a player, as well as in '
whois' (if
the '
autodesc' toggle is turned on) or with the 'showdesc' command.  To
help prevent trigger abuse, descriptions will show with a pipe in front of
them unless turned off via the '
noprefix' config toggle.

To change your description, use '
desc edit'.  This will place you in the
description editor, similar to the note editor, where you can change your
description.  Type
.h in the editor to get a list of commands available.
(zMUD users, see below.)

The editor may not be used in the warzone or lasertag area or in PK or
combat maze rooms.


zMUD users:  By default, zMUD interprets . at the beginning of a line as an
internal zMUD command.  To use .commands in the description editor, either
prefix the command with a tilde (-.h, etc.) or turn off parsing either with
ctrl-R or clicking the computer icon to the right of the input line). 
Other clients may have a similar issue; check your command prefixes for a
'literal character' to prefix the .command .
