September 2019 Post Counts

Post totals are seeing a slight downturn in sim counts for the month as the touch of Autumn weather signifies the coming of a number of events and holidays. In September we saw a fleet average of 174 sims per ship, for a total of 1563. Historically, this time of year is when many of us are gearing up for the next few months, which can be quite chaotic for some.

This month, the USS Atlantis leads the pack with 259 sims written. Following a bit behind, with 200 sims, is the USS Astraeus, making strides to come from only 131 last month. Right behind them comes the Veritas, falling to third from their pretty big lead last month.

August 2019 Post Counts

Post totals are seeing an uptick across the fleet as school is back in session and the summer days are falling quickly into the past. In August we see a fleet average of 181 sims per ship, for a total of 1631. This actually matches the post count from June, and may signify a return to routine for many ships.

This month, the USS Veritas leads the pack with 296 sims written. Following a ways behind, with 235 sims, is the USS Gorkon, falling just slightly from their lead last month. Right behind them comes the Columbia, in third for two months in a row, who has clocked 203 sims in August.

Executive Council appoints FltCapt. Roshanara Rahman to permanent seat on the council

Our community’s Constitution defines five seats and a Captain at Large role for the Executive Council. With the recent, sad departure of Renos – a long-standing Commanding Officer and member of the EC and – a seat has opened on the council.

We are pleased to announce that this seat will be filled by FltCapt. Roshanara Rahman (Rich). From his early days improving the wiki with a host of new images and templates, to where he stands now as CO of the Veritas, Deputy Commandant of the Academy, facilitator and founder of the Federation News Service team and spinoff website, he’s shown us time and again how dedicated he is to the success of our community and to our members, who have a loyal advocate in this staff member.

Rich previously served as the Captain at Large for 2017 and 2018, where he got a taste of how the council is run, putting in a good position to be an effective member of the council on his first day.

You can learn more about him in these other news posts:

Congratulations Rich!


July 2019 Post Counts

Summer is in full swing as can be seen across the UFOP: Starbase 118 fleet, as the total post count dips to 1,487. Historically typical, the preparation for school and last minute summer vacations impact sim time, but only temporarily. The average per ship sim count is 165, which may be on the lower side but still quite active!

This month, the USS Gorkon leads the pack with 280 sims written. Following a ways behind, with 192 sims, is the USS Constitution, matching their sim count from last month. Right behind them comes the Columbia, who has clocked 177 sims for the third straight month in a row!

June 2019 Post Counts

We’ve seen a slight drop in sims throughout the UFOP: Starbase 118 fleet, as we count a total post count of 1,541, which can be attributed to a normal summer slowdown. The average per ship sim count is 171, reflecting a summer full of good weather and plenty of typical vacations!

This month, the USS Astraeus – the new ship which the crew of the Montreal transferred to – leads the pack with 221 sims written. Following close behind is the Gorkon, with 203 sims. Without too much of a gap after that, the Constitution clocked 192 sims for the month of June, and the USS Eagle came in with 188.

Tell us what we can improve about the Awards Ceremony

On behalf of the Executive Council, we hope that you thoroughly enjoyed the 2019 Awards Ceremony and that you feel like everyone who should have been recognized got their moment in the spotlight.

We like to do a retrospective of how things went, each year, both with our general membership and the members of our staff to see if there’s anything we can improve for the next year. This has led to some innovations on how our nominations process works, as well as new awards when they’re needed.

March 1st – Sims Archive will be deactivated temporarily for version 3 upgrade

I am happy to say though that version 3.0 of the sims archive is in its final stages of development, with a tentative release in April. That being said, A LOT of work is being done behind the scenes and we must make major changes to the way the code works. We are now at the stage where the archive has to be turned off for the work to be completed.

Starting March 1st, 2019, the archive will be put into maintenance mode and will stay there until around the first or second week of April. You will not be able to utilize it until I get things back up and running.

Of course, no sims will be lost – all of our sims still exist in our database, we will continue to collect new sims, and you can always find your sims on your ship’s Google Group archive.

None of the links existing will work after the upgrade, unfortunately, so sim links will have to be replaced. The goal with this last patch is to make sure that we do not have to deal with this type of change again.

Thank you very much for your understanding! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Captain Nugra through Discord chat.
