We use an in-MOO bug system to handle bugs. You can submit a bug with @bug and view public bugs with @bugs
IS SOMETHING A BUG?
When encountering anomalous behavior on the game, it can be unclear if what was experienced was a bug, and if it should be bugged. This is especially confusing with the game's often masked difficulty checks and mechanics.
Traditionally, you can be sure something is a bug if: - It produces a traceback - It produces no messaging at all - Your character is no longer able to act
If what you're encountering doesn't fit one of these categories but you still might think it's a bug, you have several methods for clarification. - Use the xgame channel to see if something is a known bug - Ask on xhelp for clarification (this may have a long wait)
If what you're encountering is a messaging issue, bad description, a missing help file, or things in that vein, it is a @typo, not a @bug. Filing a @bug that is one of these things will just result in the @bug being closed.
SEARCHING FOR BUGS
You can use @bugs to search for bugs that match the search text. This is a useful practice to make sure you aren't filing a duplicate bug.
FILING A BUG
Capturing a bug after a traceback should be done as soon as possible, and should have a report that is equally detailed. For filing severity and details, refer to these bgbb posts:
How to submit a good bug : http://sindo.me/H1B5XF5zK Severity : http://sindo.me/H1b-qVK7F
You can review bugs you have reported in game with '@bugs mine'. You can add new information to a public bug by finding the bug of concern with @bugs and adding a comment to it using @vb . Do not submit new bugs for the purpose of updating or adding to an existing bug report.
Do not abuse bugs. Report them. Then avoid them.
VIEW LIST OF BUGS => @bugs
You can view public bugs that have been submitted using @bugs
VIEW A SPECIFIC BUG => @vb
This will show you details about a bug. It will also allow you to comment on the bug. Please leave additional info if you can!
VIEW UNREAD BUG COMMENTS => @forums / on connection / on comment
If you have unread comments on bugs you submitted you can see them with @forums. You will also see this message when you first connect. And if you are online you will get a notification of a new comment on a bug you submitted.
