Our community recognizes that non-simming priorities require, from time to time, leaving active duty on a short or long term basis. However, with this, it must be understood that for administrative purposes, all attempts should be made to announce such a leave of absence before beginning one. As such, the Executive Council has created a bylaw, which works with the Constitution subsection returning leave, to administer this process.
It is your responsibility as an officer requesting leave to read and understand the appropriate documents having to do with official leave. If due process is not followed, and leave is not taken in the appropriate manner, you may be putting your character, and/or your rank at risk should you wish to return to our group.
Read Article V of the Constitution, subsections 5, 6, and 12.
Do not use this form to “re-roll” a new character
Please be aware that is explicitly against our community rules to attempt to rejoin the group with a new identity without announcing that you’ve previously been a member. We always uncover this kind of deception and members who do this are expelled immediately.
So if you’ve ended up on a ship that you’re not satisfied with and you want to sim on another ship, and/or you feel like your character is not a good fit and you want to start a new character, there are options for you! All of our Commanding Officers and ship staff are in agreement that we’d rather have you remain with the game on a in a character, duty post, and crew that you enjoy simming with.
- File for a transfer: Using our transfer process, you can be moved to another ship that fits your play style better. If you want, you can also change your character and/or duty post if you want in the process.
- Change character and/or duty post: If you just want to change to a new character – even if that means changing duty posts – email your Commanding Officer. Character changes are always allowed, and duty post changes are accommodated eagerly if an open position is available. If the duty post you want to change to is not available on your current ship, you can transfer to a new vessel.
