I hope I'm not stepping on any toes here and apologize for taking so
long to post a response, but .. I have actually implemented a web-
based character registration system on my muck (AfricanTails) using
glow's web features.
The way I've got it set up, users login and request, then wizards can
login and check the requests .. and either approve or deny them right
I also have a little form-cgi set up that will email the approval
(including password and connection instructions) or the denial to the
address they used to request the character.
While I don't have an idle purger set up through the web (one of my
wizzes uses a text based MUF purger), I did add a feature where they
can request to be frobbed through the web...
So .. it can (and has) been done! :)
If anyone's curious to see what it looks like, it's online at
though unless you have a character
on the muck, the only thing you can get to is the character-request
section itself. Registered users can access the frobbing, info
display, and a few other features.
The one draw back is .. I seem to have used some sort of HTML code at
at some point that AOL's version of IE chokes on..
Ack, didn't realize I'd rambled so much! Sorry about the length of
