The end of the Featured Bio and Top Sims Contests

Share this:

Fellow fleet members, the Executive Council is announcing some changes to our fleet’s OOC activities today.

As we evaluate the effectiveness and value of our community activities, we’re constantly thinking about how we can focus on the future of our fleet, to ensure that our community remains stable, and active, for another 10 or even 20 years while hosting the most enjoyable and sustainable list of activities we can create.

Right now, that means refocusing ourselves on the things that will help grow our community. As we prepare for the launch of a new Star Trek series, we will be in competition with other RPGs – especially those launched by new fans – to continue finding new members who share the same enthusiasm for the TNG-era shows.

To that end, we’re starting the first of two steps to put that focus back on our most important tasks and projects, which means ending two very time-intensive activities that have served their purpose: The Featured Bio Contest, and the Top Sims Contest, which will be closing in the next few weeks.

We will post clear timelines for the end of each contest in their respective forums, but please know that we intend to close the Top Sims Contest in a way that ensures the fleet can still vote on this year’s top sim!

Coming up in the next two months, we’ll announce a reorganization of fleet activities – and after that, OOC commendations – to prioritize the activities that sustain and grow the fleet: Publicity, News, and Training.

We’ll update you with more information as soon as it becomes available. But if you have urgent questions, simply reach out to the Executive Council on our form.

Thank you for your membership. We hope you’ve enjoyed these activities and that you’ll find what comes next just as fun and entertaining!
