Waystation: Top MUD Sites
In its prime, Top MUD Sites provided robust discussions, competitive game rankings, and frequently updated (if sometimes controversial) game reviews.
These days, TMS isn't quite as vibrant. The review system has been broken for a while - no word yet on when it'll be fixed. The rankings can get pretty stagnant, with the same popular games filling the Top 20 month after month. Discussions aren't what they used to be, although they do spike in fits and bursts.
Right now, the greatest value provided by TMS is as a repository of MUD links and occasional advertising opportunities for games in the forums. It remains an excellent jumping-off point for travelers like the MUDdy Hobo to discover new worlds.
