New - Posting Incentives, Help the CO, Much more!

Posted on Thu Oct 22nd, 2009 @ 11:06am by Rear Admiral Relau Chlan (Ret.)

Hey all,

Due to the responses (or lack thereof) as to why activity is being wanted, I have decided to come up with an incentive system to help everyone post.


Posting Incentive System

Posting more than your required number of posts will result in points. Your points are based on a scale of 1-10 (1 being the low end) of the following categories: 1) Length, 2) Cannon, 3) Quality, 4) Storyline, 5) Overall. You have the opportunity to get up to 50 points every post.

Here are the rankings.

Ensign - 100 points
LT (JG) - 500 points
LT - 1500 points
LT Cdr. - 3000 points
Cdr - 5500 points

These care the same for enlisted ranks as well.

So if you are currently a LT (JG) - you have 500 points. You need 1000 more points to be promoted. Awards will be given out based mainly on this merit too.

If you do not wish to participate in the points system, you may opt out of it.


Helping the CO

I need help. I'll be the first to admit it. I need some people who are very, very well versed in Star Trek Cannon, and who can be my go-to people for my questions. You will be assigned a topic (mainly around your area of expertise) and requested to do a couple of things. You will either 1) write a database topic on it, or 2) fit what you have learned into a post.

You can do both if it suits you.

So, for example, you work in Diplomatic. Your subject matter is Diplomatic, and I need to know exactly how the Tellerites would respond in an aggressive situation. (That's only an example folks.)

It'll allow us to have more quality posts if people know what they are talking about in their posts ;)

Awards will be given out to help this along this as well.


Posting competition

Every month, the person who posts the most will receive a Ship Award, and a bonus added to their points system. This INCLUDES the month of October. I promise that I'll make it worth your while. Take a minute and bump into someone in the hallway, go on a fishing trip in the holodeck, fix an EPS conduit on a fighter. The possibilities are endless.

This is every month that this will happen.


Monthly Competition

The monthly competition will start in the month of November. I need NPCs. I swear I do. Anyone who writes up at least 5 NPC 2 paragraph bios and adds them to their department will receive an award. E-mail or PM them to me if you do not have the option to do that. I'll post them for you.


Hopefully some of these things will be beneficial to the crew and the ship. Let me know if you have other ideas that can help us become the best in OF. I think that this is a perfect time to remind everyone that we are all in this together, and in the first 6 months (Holy cow, I need to give 6 month awards out today) of the Shanghai, we have been awarded the Bronze Merit Award twice. The only other simm I personally know of that has done that is now the USS Andoria. They have 33 active people on that simm. Let's surpass them in quality.

Any questions, comments, whatever, PM me or email me.

Thanks for all you do.
