Participation Requirement

Posted on Tue Sep 29th, 2020 @ 11:11am by Lieutenant Kevin Lance

At the suggestion of one of the players, I am implementing a participation requirement. The majority of players are currently in compliance with the proposed participation requirement. I welcome any comments on the proposed participation requirement:


Participation Requirement

The Simulation is intended to be a collaboration between players through their characters. As such there is a weekly requirement to significantly participate in at least one joint post or develop their character through at least one personal log entry. The Sim Master will use the Crew Activity report to determine if a player in is violation of this requirement.

Players who violate the participation requirement by not posting within a week will receive a written PM warning from the Sim Master. Players who violate the participation requirement for two or more weeks will be placed in an Inactive role while the Sim Master attempts to make contact. Players who violate the participation requirement for four or more weeks will be removed from the simulation and their characters inactivated.

The participation requirement will be waive for characters on a leave of absence. A leave of absence can be requested on the Control Panel tab. A player must provide a duration for the leave of absence but do not need to give a reason. Participation requirements will resume upon the end of the leave of absence’s duration.

Characters of players on a short term (two week or less) leave of absence are considered to be on the ship but otherwise detained. Characters of players on an extended (more than two weeks) leave of absence are considered to have left the ship. A player returning from an extended leave of absence will need to work with the Sim Master to have their character reintegrated into the Simulation.

Based on player feedback, the following changes are made to the Participation Requirement:

"Real Life Comes First and the Sim Master understands that events in the real world can interfere with a players ability to participate but” is inserted in front of “The Simulation is intended…”


Replaced “As such there is…one personal log entry” with “As such there is a requirement for players to significantly participate in at least one post or develop their character in at least one personal log entry per week. Only one mission post or personal log entry is required, not both.

Sorry, I missed this notice with the new requirement, please drop me from the sim. I cannot necessarily commit to this as I work full time, have kids that will always come first and am running 3 DnD games as well as playing in one, thank you
