Help Autodesc

Syntax:  autodesc

By default, you will see a character's description as well as their other
player information when you type 'whois <playername>'.  You may change this
to only see the player information, without the description, by changing
the 'autodesc' setting.

If you have autodesc off, you may still see someone's description by looking
at them or through the 'showdesc' command.
