Breaking into the new year is easy! 2391 will have just as much, if not more, to offer the members of our community. As you sit down to make your New Year’s Resolutions, be sure to making visiting the forums one of the items on your list. There are always great parts of our community out there for you to get involved with. Most of the time, it just takes a few spare minutes.
See a Sim on your ship that is really well written? It only take a couple minutes to open a thread and submit it to the Top Sims Contest. It is a great way to showcase the sims from your ship, and an awesome way to give recognition to your favorite writers. Be sure to check it out: http://forums.starbase118.net/index.php?/forum/283-top-sims-contest/
The fun does not stop there. We have an extensive wiki that is used to document…well, everything. From newly discovered systems, to odd new species the wiki has a ton of information at your fingertips. If you see a profile for a character that you really like, and you think that it should be featured on the front page, simply head to the Featured Bio Competition and submit it. It is easy to find, if you know where to look: http://forums.starbase118.net/index.php?/forum/467-featured-bio-contest/
If you have ever been told that nobody cares what you think, ignore it! You can always share your opinion in the Poll of the Week. Each week Lt. Commander Tracey Townson asks a question that is sure to get your brain working in overdrive. Swing by and check out what the question is this week. Then, make sure you check back in every Friday for the new poll: http://forums.starbase118.net/index.php?/forum/328-poll-of-the-week/
Quit playing games! Scratch that, how about starting playing games? The forums also have a great place for you to participate in many fleet-wide games that have been ongoing for years. Do not be afraid to dive right in and have a blast. Got an idea for a new forum game? Open a new thread and watch the fleet flock to play with you: http://forums.starbase118.net/index.php?/forum/58-games/
With so many cool things to check out in 2014, you will find so much to do on the UFOP: StarBase 118 Forums…that you may have to visit daily! Make this year the year that you really make your presence known. Stop by and try your hand in any thread you can find. And if you cannot find it, start it.
Each month, the Publicity Team posts the number of applications our community received for the current year and how those applicants found our group. That summary will give you an idea of how we are reaching new applicants and how we can improve our efforts to reach new audiences. If you’re interested in helping with our publicity efforts, click the link above to check out the Publicity Team’s wiki area, and then the link to the Publicity Team’s Yahoo! Group where you can sign up to be a part of the team.
We also want to keep you apprised of the number of graduates from the StarBase 118 Academy. Unfortunately, not all applicants graduate from the Academy because they either do not respond to roll call or do not complete the Academy requirements. The Training Team makes every effort to involve all applicants and to encourage them to complete the training.
**Note: The site was down for the biggest part of May, resulting in the lower numbers.
