Wiki highlight: Promotions guide

Share this:

We first brought our wiki online in 2004 and since then have been building out a vast store of knowledge both about the In Character universe we write, but also about the Out Of Character community that we’re building. Nearly any question you have about how our group works can be answered somewhere on the wiki, as long as you know where to find it!

In this month’s wiki highlight column, we’re focusing on the promotion guide. Click here to open this area on the wiki and take a look.

The promotion guide was written for all members as a place to get started understanding how to make your way up through the ranks as efficiently as possible. You’ll find “transition pages,” for movement from each rank starting at ensign and going all the way through captain and beyond.

Each page of the promotion guide offers some helpful baseline tips on what’s important at that level of membership. For Ensign to Lieutenant JG, for example, you’ll learn that the most important points to focus on are simming often, responding to other players, and making sure to write well. There are also some “extra credit” items you can focus on if you really want to impress your CO.

Feel free to read through the guide, even if it’s for a promotion you’re not up for quite yet. It’ll help you get an idea of how you can continue to prepare yourself. If you have any questions, you can talk to your mentor, your First Officer, your Commanding Officer, or even start a thread in the “rank and promotion” forum.
