Display your awards on your wiki profile

Awards are an integral part of the Starbase 118 experience. While we work hard to sim and weave a story that brings our imagination to life, acknowledgement for tackling some of the more difficult aspects of story building, or getting recognized for contributions that help our community grow are something everyone looks forward to.

And now, it’s easier than ever to make sure that you and your characters can shine by sharing the ribbons and awards you’ve earned!

Whether you’ve earned an OOC award or your character has gained a new Service Ribbon, players now have options on how to display their ribbons. While the ribbon ‘rack’ for character sidebars has been around for some time, our Chief of Wiki Operations has devised a new way to show off OOC awards on your user page.

By simply copying and pasting some specialized code, players can create a professional looking ‘case’ for their ribbons and awards. Complete with a nice wooden finish, the case allows you the ability to include the image of the award, the name of the award, the year that it was awarded along with the ship you were assigned to when the award was received, and the text of the citation that often accompanies both IC and OOC awards.

There are even multiple ways to implement this new addition to your user page or character page as well, including simplistic formatting, as well as something more descriptive using wiki markup code. Like many aspects of our wiki, the case that you create can be as simple or as elaborate as you desire! With a finish to match the beauty of our award ribbons themselves, this is another great way to show your amazing contribution to the 118 fleet.

Complete instructions on how to implement this special code are located here. And remember, if you run into any trouble, don’t hesitate to ask questions. Our Chief of Wiki Operations welcomes them here.


Announcing the Innovation Ribbon

Among the service ribbons available for in-character actions, recognition for acts of bravery and honor abound; there are ribbons for saving lives, for using diplomacy, and for being taken as a POW; and there are even ribbons to celebrate each of the previous summer blockbusters. Until now, though, there’s been no ribbon to celebrate the creative use of science or technology in a dangerous situation. But for those of you who play cool thinkers and problem solvers, rejoice: the Innovation Ribbon is available to you!

Writes Emma, the ribbon’s proposer and the writer behind Captain Quinn Reynolds,

in the same manner that the Medical Science Ribbon rewards medical innovation to save lives, and the Diplomacy Ribbon recognises negotiation skills deployed resolve a dangerous situation, this ribbon would be presented to those individuals whose who apply their knowledge of STEM fields in a noteworthy fashion.

Be sure to keep your characters looking for those creative solutions — they might just receive special recognition! As always, remember that you can read more about all service ribbons on the wiki!


New Service Ribbon: The Diplomacy Ribbon

The Captains Council has commissioned a new Service Ribbon, called the Diplomacy Ribbon. This IC achievement is presented to officers who have distinguished themselves by resolving a significantly dangerous or hostile situation through diplomatic means.

This is the first ribbon for our ambassadors and diplomats who put words before phasers, and we’re excited to open this to these characters.

You can learn more about this ribbon, as well as all of our other Service Ribbons, on the wiki.
