Slingshot around the sun: Donations goals met for 2020 and 2021

After asking the fleet to step up a few weeks ago to make sure we could meet our 2020 donations goal for May 1, we received a fantastic and thrilling outpouring of support. Soon after, we met our 2020 goal, and then fulfilled all of the 2021 goal, which means we’re set until May of 2022!

Huge thanks to these incredible donors: Jo Marshall, Genkos Adea, Geoffrey Teller, Oddas Aria, Tara Wilkins, Addison MacKenzie, Alex Blair, Jacob Horne, and Ferier Kian. One incredibly generous – anonymous – donor fulfilled than 50% of the 2021 goal and counts as our largest single donation in the group’s history!

Additionally, we received a few donations to help our advertising campaigns, and as such we hope to launch some Google Ads in the next few weeks to help with recruitment.

Our community relies on donations from our members to keep our website, forums, and wiki online. It’s only with your support that we can keep our resources online and ensure we protect our domains.


Add your Writer ID to all emails

Just a quick reminder to all members of our fleet that your Writer ID should be attached to all emails you send on fleet business, including your sims and also the OOC messages to your ship list and taskforces.

These Writer IDs are critical in helping our fleet staff keep track of your contributions to the fleet, and are used in helping review your past efforts for the sake of promotions and other commendations.

We recommend adding your Writer ID to your email signature and making sure your signature is identical on both your desktop/laptop email client as well as your mobile device email client – sometimes, like in the case of Gmail – the email signature is set by device type (desktop/mobile/tablet, etc.) as opposed to by account.

We have a full tutorial on our wiki that explains how to add your Writer ID to your email signature, as well as some other methods you can use if that doesn’t work for you.

To check your Writer ID, head to the Complete Member Directory on the wiki. Have questions about your Writer ID? Talk to your ship’s CO for guidance!
