We had this thread on the old forums, and surprisingly not here yet!
For those of you that don't know, voting for Aetolia bumps us higher up on the Top Mud Sites website, a site that many people go to when they get bored of their current MUD, or go to when they're looking for a MUD period. By getting us higher up on that ladder you increase the odds of people deciding that day that it's Aetolia they want to try - and who's going to complain about more players?
So with that said, vote
and CONFIG VOTEREMINDER ON within the game!
I think that shooting to place at least 5th by the end of this month is quite the reasonable goal, and it's one we've hit before albeit not recently.
