Rules

Rules for the USS Challenger

Created by Fleet Admiral Andrew Wheeler on Thu Nov 24th, 2011 @ 10:49pm

1. Respect the chain of command. Failure to do so will result in demotion or position change.

2. No "god-modding." If your post requires that you use more than just your character, do a joint post and include the other person as an author. However, if it has been a ridiculous amount of time since a user has posted and their participation is required to move the story along, another character may "god-mod" the character in question with permission from anyone in the chain of command column on the right.

3. Please try to post once a week or once every two weeks. No less than once a month. If you don't post in two months, you will be set as inactive unless you contact me about an LOA. Sitting around having to wait for someone to post is boring, tedious, and makes other players angry.

4. The Captain of this vessel demands prompt responses to his messages from the crew. If any one of the crew take longer than 3 days to respond to an official communication, it will be considered grounds for removal.

5. We do not accept applications from anyone under the age of 18. While the IDF allows players over the age of 13, we do not believe that non-adults are conducive to the atmosphere of this sim.

6. Good grammar is a must. Nothing ruins reading like having to decipher a mess of bad spelling and mis-punctuation.

7. Because we had problems with this in the past, story posts are mission posts. The personal logs are for in-character commentary or other miscellaneous items related to the mission at hand.

8. In a joint post that has three or more authors, the highest ranking officer is responsible for coordinating the editing of that post. He decides who is allowed to edit the post and when; no one should add to the joint post before his approval.

9. We will follow a strict way of setting the timeline.

Example:
Timeline: Mission Day: Day 4 - Time: 1540 - Sol System, Mars OR
Timeline: Mission Day: Day 2 - Time: 1322 - J'Larre system, J'Larre III

This isn't hard. It actually helps keep continuity and to figure out what the hell we're doing.

Also be sure to follow the main IDF rules available here:

Note: Rules subject to change at random. Please check often and if you have any questions or comments, contact the captain through e-mail or private message.
