  1. Thanks for the congrats. I think the Admiral might be slightly mistaken however, the remainder listed (including my own) were just the other entries. I don't think there was an official runner-up. But it was fun. :)

    Narrative hard to follow

    Absolutely it's a practice thing. The important thing is to include what others have contributed to the conversation, and to reply to your tags. I actually often copy and paste my last post into Word, and then as I read through the replies I past what the other characters said or did into the tag spots, and then I can continue with my character's reactions or replies, before pasting the whole thing back into an email. Try a few different ways to find out what works for you.
  3. Been busy mate. I'm simming but I haven't had much time to hang around on the site. How've you been?

    Questions about our group

    That's excellent news. Of course, having got all excited because it's Monday which means training starts, I now realise that Monday for the people who run the training is no doubt Tuesday for me. Clearly I shall have to practice some Vulcan meditation to keep my impatience under control.

    Questions about our group

    I am looking forward to becomming a part of the fleet - does it show? - and shall be interested to see where I am placed. BTW, am I by any chance addressed a fellow Aussie? And thank you, I have some fairly nifty art software and am not above a little photomanipulation. I am also an avid fan of Cillian Murphy, whose picture I butchered. I have altered pictures for avatars for players in other games before. I do like your banner. I have yet to try to put together something that complex, but it looks like a lot of thought went into it.

    Questions about our group

    I have a question about sim selection. Assuming that we graduate, I am given to understand that we will be assigned to a sim based on writing style and open positions. Do we have any say in the sim to which we are assigned? If, for example, having looked over the sites and info on various sims, we had formed a preference, could we make that preference known? Obviously the commanding officers know their sims much better than we do and I assume that we would be told if they felt that a particular sim was not right for us, but would a preference at least be taken into account?

    Why did you apply to join our community?

    Like some otheres here I too am ex-AQSG, although I never underwent their training program as I was a crew member of one of the two founding sims and therefor predate their Academy training by several years. I always enjoyed the free-form but paced nature of the PBeM which encouraged character development and good writing skills. Unfortunately a lot of these sims appear to be falling by the wayside. With the folding of the last group I was involved in I was concerned that might be the end of Star Trek RPG as I knew it, as a great many players were lost to Star Trek Online. I was therefor very interested when Starbase 118 appeared on my Google search, as you appear to be a keen and active group with a planned training program that suggests a high level of organisation and support for new players. I admit that the writing style described on your website nearly put me off as I am very much a 'storyteller' and I was concerned that the various quote marks were indicative of a truncated and 'chat-like' method of posting, which I would find distasteful. However, I read some of your writing competition work and also some posts from one of your sims on their YahooGroups site and found that this was not the case. Although the format is unfamiliar the quality and depth of writing is still there, so I resolved to 'suck it and see', as we say Down Under. I have been playing other types of RPGs but I have missed Star Trek, and I am keen to boldly go once more.
  9. Thank you for your expression of welcome.

  10. Thank you Captain. It is a privaledge to be here.
