Rules

Code of Conduct
1) Be respectful! Harassment and discrimination will not be tolerated.
2) The USS Astraea sim is rated .
3) Enjoy yourself and have fun! That's an order!

Players
1) Communication is key. Please talk to the Command team if you have any problems or need to be away from the Sim. We understand Real Life comes first but let us know. We can make arrangements that work for everyone.
2) Players are to post once per 14 days, though we understand life sometimes gets in the way. Exceptions will be made for big joint posts, though players should reply to TAGs within three days.
3) Please keep in line with the format of the Sim, making sure to put a title, time stamp, and location in the appropriate places in posts. Also use appropriate language for the Sim rating.
4) Don't be scared to talk to the Command team if you are having trouble coming up with ideas for posts, or if something is bothering you about the sim. We will help you as best as we can. We don't bite!
5) If a writer hasn't logged into the site for a period of one month and has failed to answer any communication sent to them by the Command team, they will be removed from the game.

Characters
1) Players own their own characters and NPCs.
2) NEVER write for someone else's character unless you have received permission from them.
3) If you want to create an NPC in a particular department, make sure to ask the department head first to make sure they're okay with it.

Timeline Format

We have applied a plugin to the Astraea's Nova that sorts our posts by timeline so that we can see them in chronological order as they happen instead of as they were posted.

In order for this plugin to work, ALL posts have to use the same format for the timeline. Our chosen format is:

2389.### HHMM

Where the ### equals the day of the year out of 365. So for example, April 30, 2389 will be 2389.120. (You can find which day number out of 365 a particular date is here: https://www.epochconverter.com/days/2018)

And HHMM equals the time, in 24 hour format. So 5:07 pm would be 1707.

Also, the 2389 is already provided by the mod, so you need only worry about the day of the year and time. If you have any questions, please ask a member of the command team.

If any posts go out without a timeline or with a missing timeline, it will be changed back to SAVED and player(s) will be sent a message requesting the timeline be corrected. If you are having difficulty working out when your post takes place or figuring out the stardate, please message one of the command team for assistance!
