Cinfo is character information that can be filled in about your character or read about other's. Sometimes it's also referenced as pinfo. Use the following commands to access most of this information from within Tapestries: cinfo #help and cinfo #help setup.


Reading Cinfo

You can read a given player's cinfo by typing cinfo playername but not all players have a cinfo.

Some players have miscellaneous cinfo fields beyond the basic ones, these will be displayed at the bottom of their cinfo and can be read by typing cinfo character FieldName.

Cinfo Fields

Like a giving yourself a description, it's a good idea to fill in something for your cinfo even if it's something simple. There are nine seperate cinfo fields that can be used by default, those fields and their descriptions are listed below but can be accessed by typing cinfo #fields on the muck:

A summary of your style, your outlook, and your preferences regarding dominance, submission, sadism, masochism, discipline, bondage, and other kink and fetish sexual contexts.
The URL to your online journal or webpage, if you care to share it.
A summary description of your persona or character. Personality, career, friends, family, skills, etc.
An email address where the Player can be reached, if you care to share one.
The URL to a picture of your character, if one should be available.
Whatever you care to share about the Player behind the character. Please, keep it honest if you put something here.
A summary description of your gender/species preferences, if any.
You may mention where your character lives within the MUCK topology.
A summary description of your roleplaying preferences, including themes, rating, content (i.e. subject, topic), level of involvement, length of roleplay (scene or soap opera?), and so forth.

Setting Cinfo

There are a couple ways to set your cinfo that vary depending on what you are doing. The nine fields mentioned above can be set by typing: cinfo #set FieldName=The text you want to put there.

cinfo #set character=Information about your character

Miscellaneous or custom cinfo fields can be set by typing:

cinfo #setmisc CustomFieldName=The text you want to put there

Clear a field

To clear a cinfo field, use the normal command without any text: cinfo #set FieldName and cinfo #setmisc CustomFieldName. Below we clear the character field:

cinfo #set character

Large multi-line blocks of text

You can use a property list to create and modify entries with large multi-line blocks of text. Create a new list item using lsedit me=PropertyListItemName and cinfo #set FieldName={eval:{list:PropertyListItemName}} to set it. The example below sets a cinfo character field with extended formatting.

lsedit me=cinfocharacter
cinfo #set character = {eval:{list:cinfocharacter}}

Cinfo Alert

There is a piece of MPI code that can be embedded within a main Cinfo field when set to alert you whenever someone looks at it. The code is:

{null: {tell: {name:me} looked at your cinfo and is at {name:here} owned by {owner:here},this}}

Technical Cinfo

Cinfo is stored inside the _cinfo/ propdir with each field being an individual prop. The miscellaneous cinfo fields are stored inside the _cinfo/misc/ propdir.
