[Spring 2019] MOO Cleanup Day
Saturday May 25th


Running Sindome is great. But, there is a good amount of upkeep! There are tasks that the staff needs to do on a semi-annual basis. These are things like reviewing our documentation, reviewing the wiki, pruning things that have built up too much at the market, triaging and reviewing all our bug reports, fixing typos, and many, many other things.

I've put together a document which details the stuff we need to knock out. And Saturday May 25th to all get on the MOO and work through these issues. It's an all day affair.

This post is to let you all know that there will be limited GMing taking place that day. We need the entire staff to be focused on checking items off the list. This is our 'spring cleaning', so to speak. So, for everyone out there, please don't schedule things for that day that will require GMs. Please don't expect puppets that day. Please do us a favor and limit your attempts to speak with NPCs that day.

We may also request additional help on Fix-It, and have specific things that you as players, can do to help us clean up the MOO that day. This includes:

1. Cleaning up your @nakeds and @description

2. Cleaning up your item bloat by trashing / dumping crap you don't need that is taking up space

3. Helping with descriptions that need updating

4. Testing things

Questions? Suggestions?

Awhile ago you introduced @review-cloth to help with this clean up effort (I think) has this helped by crowd sourcing the purge?
Zum: Yes, it has made that part of clean up basically an always on thing that requires ZERO gm attention, ever again

Everyone: This is still a thing. I started early and have been at it for about 5 hours. It will continue through tomorrow.

Update: Over time I continue to automate more and more of this, meaning that over time the tasks we end up having to do are ones that simply cannot be automated such as:

1. reviewing npc inventories to confirm that they don't have stuff on them that they should not.

2. checking that various npcs don't have too much chyen

3. reviewing look place and descriptions

4. making sure our membership pads are all cleared out and our docs are updated.

For example our auto pruner just ran and claimed back: prune total: 8,637,657 bytes

That's 8.5 megs!

Just keep in mind that tomorrow will be a low puppet day while we do this-- and we will be asking everyone to review their @nakeds, @description, and hoards of items to remove bloat. Do your part to keep the moo slim and fast and sexy.

Clean up day is winding down, looks like there are GMs doing GM things again. Thanks to everyone who helped out.
