From Tapestries MUCK
Cinfo is character information that can be filled in about your character or read about other's. Sometimes it's also referenced as pinfo.
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 FieldName.
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 #list 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.
You 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.
Miscellaneous or custom cinfo fields can be set by typing:
cinfo #setmisc CustomFieldName=The text you want to put there.
You can also do things like use a list in place of what you want the field to say.
