Anyone ever fail?

Recommended Posts

I hate to admit it, but the first time I trained, way back when these boards didn't exist yet, I failed. I got so confused and was so nervous I'd make a mistake, I just stopped SIMming in training. I passed the second time around though because I had a better idea of what to expect.

Anyone else failed in their first attempt or was it only me?

edit: Whoops. Maybe I should've put this in the Registrar section. If a moderator could move it, I'd appreciate it :blushing:

I know how you feel. When I joined first time I was more confident with my application for some reason. Maybe after simming with some brilliant simmers I realised how bad mine was :)

I look in my archives, and check the sims at the academy, and even the beginnning of my first assignment, and think "wow I was terrible"

Same on both counts.

When I looked at my hold sims for Nash, I feel embarresed when i read them, there so, well awful lol.

I was alot more confident filling in the application form the first time, the second time, I think because i had already done it once, i was thinking 'what if i fail?' lol.

Well I hope I don't end up totally flopping. I'm going to do my best in training. Hope for the best.

Heh, for any kind of forum like this? I'm used to RPing in a very differnt fandom. Hopefully I'll do well here. That's what I'm the most nervous about.

If you know the basics of Trek you will be fine. The training officers are first class and will be of great a help to you during training.

Speaking as a former training officer, people do fail for any number of reasons. not everyone that submits a form or gets to training ends up in the fleet.

Oh, and I did not fail when I first joined all those many years ago. Was quite bad though....

I was doubtful about my applicion and I wrote in first person for the first 3 months but I got through first time... In fact, the last month or two has probably been the hardest for me... There have been times I've thought about giving it up, but I have so far talked myself out of it.

April Fools jokes have to be before midday.... or else you're the fool. Dunno where you are but you'd have to be in timezone GMT -13 for you not to be the fool at that time...

Well I have a habit of being nervous. So me saying I hope I don't flop is me anticipating my being a spazz by reading too much into every little thing.

Hope I don't do that. Hehe.

You are not expected to be great to start with. The training mission is a learning process. You will receive positive criticism from the training officers, everyone does, even those coming back from some time out. Sure you will be fine. :)

it is, I've been rping and writing for years, I love using imagination and seeing characters come to life, It's a real highlight when I see someone moving independant of their writer.

The first time I applied I wondered if my grammar would be good or if my imagination and knowledge would be enough. I failed the first time 'cause I've got problems with my computer and couldn't get online to answer the posts. However the second time I could and passed. I was so joyful that even jumped from the chair I was sitting.

Having trained 4 classes, I'll go ahead and answer too. In the course of those 4 classes, I had 14 pass and 5 people fail, 4 of which were because they stopped simming. The last person was a huge problem, disruptive tot he simming group and very argumentative. I ended up putting him on moderated status and he calmed down a little bit, but still was somewhat disruptive and ended up not passing because of that.

Interesting. But I'd saying 14 to 5 is a pretty good ratio.

<_< I usually only get 1 pass in my classes and I've COed a good six or seven in my time.

Maybe I'm too harsher examiner or just a rubbish CO... dunno :whistling:

In my defense...every single Cadet that did pass my class stayed in the UFoP at least two years and made it to LtCmdr or above o:)

Well, after participating in 62 Academy classes - 30 as CO or FO (including the current class), I have always felt that the class setting tends to be more stressful than actually being on a ship, mostly because of the time element. Classes only last about a week and the pressure is on to make a good showing. For that reason, I don't look for near perfection from Cadets. I look for those who express themselves well, and show a desire to become a productive member of our group.
