January Update

Posted on 20 Jan 2021 @ 4:47pm by Captain Harvey Geisler

Hello everyone!

Welcome to 2021! (I say this only because this is my first actual news update since November last year.) There are a couple things I need to share with everyone.

1. Awards
This is something I've been terrible at dealing with in the last couple of years. Walsh and I are currently working on updating these site-wide, especially our length-of-service and mission completion awards. But there are a couple things we need from you.

First, we need your nominations! From now until January 31st, please submit your fellow players for any of the crew awards that we have available. To do this, go to Control Panel > User Subpanel > Award Nominations.

Second, if you have an idea for a new award, reach out to Walsh or myself and we'll take a look at it.

2. Posting Requirements
Per our rules, all players are required to publish a post every two weeks, and respond to any tags within 72 hours. In 2020, this was relaxed quite a bit, but we are now moving back into more solid requirements. Beginning today, these requirements are back in force.

If you cannot meet these requirements, please contact myself or Walsh immediately so that we can evaluate possible options, including alternate arrangements.

These requirements exist not because we're trying to maintain certain numbers. Many of us are here because we want to play and write excellent stories. We often get discouraged because someone takes too long to tag, and those actions can drag the stories down and sometimes even force us to take unnatural left turns in developing those stories. The command team has more than a dozen stories we'd like to go through, but that list is only going to grow the more we stall.

If you're having trouble writing, please consider visiting our wiki to review the 50 Mission Post ideas, or even consider creating an NPC in another department.

3. Let's Have Fun
I know I had to go for the hard stuff there, but let's definitely remember that this is a game. When we all work together, fun and creativity are allowed to flourish. Let's enjoy each other, our collaboration, and tell some amazing stories!
