Kudos and thanks to our Community News team

Recommended Posts

I'm getting into the habit of recapping the work our Community News team has done for the previous month, for the sake of showing everyone how awesome our team members are, and I figured that perhaps I should post here on the forums instead of just to our team email list!

So for month of March, I want to recognize the following: 

  • First posts! Lt. Trellis Vondaryan submitted an article about the Awards Ceremony moving to June AND a Writer's Workshop;
  • First post! Ens. Paul Scudder submitted an interview with Cmdr. Taybrim;
  • First post! LtCmdr. Kalos Fiorr submitted a feature about a new Star Trek game;
  • Cmdr. Blair submitted the monthly apps & grads article, and two Featured Bio Contest reminders;
  • Cmdr. Taybrim submitted a feature on the Top Sims Contest, and two chat reminders;
  • Lt. Cmdr. DeVeau, our interview queen, submitted an interview with Cmdr. Blair about his work on the Academy Training team;
  • Capt. Faranfey submitted the monthly post totals;
  • Capt. Rajel submitted the Graphics Contest reminder post;
  • Cmdr. Cody submitted the Writing Challenge reminder;
  • Capt. Renos submitted the Publicity Team article.

Thanks to each and every one of you for all your hard work. It is greatly appreciated!

The weather is turning, pumpkin spice is in -- well -- everything and the end of the month is here once again.

So thanks for pushing through the rough times everybody, here's what people in the team accomplished:

  • The Federation News Service posted the seven monthly vessel reports;
  • Between them, LtCmdr. Shayne & LtCmdr. Valdivia generated four new Polls of the Week, keeping the community engaged with insightful topics;
  • Capt. Rahman posted the monthly post totals per ship;
  • Cmdr. Blair continued to write about the Academy applications/graduates;
  • Lt. Rosek wrote about contributing to the Podcast;
  • Lt. Thoran provided two articles, a Writer's Workshop and a post digging into the archives of the old Writing Challenges;
  • LtJG. Ji-hu contributed an interview about Odd Jobs;
  • and Admrl. Wolf stayed the backbone of the team, writing interviews, chat reminders, about promotions and wiki know-hows, among others.

Thanks to everyone who contributed something. Hopefully October doesn't scare us too badly.

It sure is scary out there today, so be sure to put on your masks and costumes to keep all the ghoulies out. The News team has been busy all month writing scary and intriguing stories (okay, I'll stop the Halloween stuff now), and it's time to give them treats (okay, no I won't!) for all the hard work:

  • The Federation News Service posted six monthly vessel reports;
  • LtCmdr. Shayne performed three new Polls of the Week topics, keeping the community engaged with insightful topics;
  • Capt. Rahman posted the monthly post totals per ship;
  • Cmdr. Blair continued to write about the Academy applications/graduates;
  • LtCmdr. Vondaryan generated a Duty Post spotlight article;
  • Lt. Thoran provided two articles, a Writer's Workshop and a post digging into the archives;
  • Cmdr. Jorey wrote the final Bio Contest Winner article;
  • Capt. Taybrim introduced a new segment, Dear Kr'Abby, keeping readers entertained with 24th century Klingon advice;
  • and Admrl. Wolf remains the skeleton holding the, well, skeleton, together, making the Halloween avatar announcements (congratulations to the winners!), interviews, donations, and academy graduates.

Thanks to everyone for spilling your guts here. We'll of course give some more thanks in November.
