  1. Let's get down to business! This is an open thread to introduce your character. Don't worry about formatting -- just be creative and write in a way that's comfortable for you. You'll learn how to use our official format once training starts. For now, let's just have fun! Here's how it works: your character has just finished four years at the Academy and has arrived at StarBase 118 for their "Cadet Cruise." (i.e.- your training program!) Your transport has arrived a few hours before you're due to report to the holodeck for the briefing. Maybe you want to wander around the massive commercial sector, or something else entirely? You'll want to start with your character. Be creative about showing us who they are -- species, name, and perhaps a description of what they look like. Think back to the fiction books you've read, and recall how authors introduce you to the main character of the story. You might find this tutorial "How to introduce a character" to be useful. Ready to go? Just click the black button that says "reply to this topic", or just start typing in the box at the bottom of this page!

    A Possibly Dumb Question

    I think most people still say Centris.

    Why did you apply to join our community?

    Unfortunately, the last thread under this name was lost due to an error on my part. After a spammer posted two virus links in separate threads, I meant to delete ONE post from the thread under this name, and delete the "other" entire thread he created. I did it in reverse, though :-\ Anyway, let's start a new thread! Just tell us why you applied to join our community over any other group on the net
  10. Are you in training, or recently finished with training, and have some thoughts on how we can make things better? We'd love to hear more about these subjects: * How easy was the website to navigate? * Did you find the Cadets are useful? * Was there too much information to process? Not enough? * Was the process "step by step" enough, or were there points at which you became confused? * What info were you looking for that we didn't have easily available? Beyond that, ANY suggestions are welcome which can help streamline our process, increase your enjoyment, and make it easier to participate! Please press Reply now and let us know!

    Googlegroup

    It has something to do with the fact that Gmail's able to recognize when an email sent to a list – especially Google Groups. So when the email comes from the group with your address, it just "deletes" that email and threads what's in your Sent folder. As @Jona ch'Ranni said, you can always just check your All Mail/Sent folders. Another thing to do is set up a Gmail filter that searches for anything sent to an email list, and then have it labeled – i.e.- "Gorkon sim" / "Gorkon OOC". That way you can just drop into that label to see your post. But if you're looking to confirm your email got to the list, you'll need to go to the group page itself.

    Responding to Tags

    Sorry I missed this – hopefully the question has been answered by now in the class For future reference of others: Generally the etiquette is to wait at least 24 hours before responding again, more depending on the flow of the story. Some ships sim faster than others, so you'll get guidance on this from your eventual Commanding Officer. Each time you write a post, it'll be a new part of the story. In some cases, there will be situations where a bunch of people are in the same room and you might need to sorta "rehash" the scene as people fill in tags, but most of the time that won't be necessary and you'll just be picking up where you last left off. So if someone's response to your tag requires more "discussion," you can repost the last few lines so that people don't have to go back and look at previous sims, but otherwise you want to have new content starting from that point. Hope that helps

    Questions about our group

    Would you mind trying this link? https://www.starbase118.net/chat/ Follow the instructions onscreen carefully – it does require you to step through a few quick things before you can chat. Let me know if that doesn't work!

    Just started....

    Training is where you get to try out your training wheels and get all the buzzy stuff out of your system. Then once you get to the ship you'll feel a lot more confident that you know what you're doing! Hope you have fun!

    Greetings from Ari Tullus!

    Sounds like a good start to your character!

    Questions about our group

    Any reason we can't convince you to give Play By Email a try? We've been running for nearly 25 years now, so we like to think we have Star Trek simming figured out pretty well!

    Application Example Question

    Yes, that's the correct interpretation. I encourage you to submit by this evening – we have a training group starting tomorrow and we'd love to have you in it.

    New recruit, training July 30th!

    Welcome! Hope you enjoy the training session Make sure to stop by the wiki and read through the cadet orientation: https://wiki.starbase118.net/wiki/index.php?title=Cadet_Orientation
  22. Just echoing those above in that it's not required that someone be in their 20s when they enter Starfleet Academy – that's simply a guideline. We've heard onscreen of characters, especially Vulcans, being much older.
