Another month come and gone, things have been relatively calm for us.

James Sinclair, USS Dresden, GMM Lindsay Bayes, awaiting sim conclusion to make final evaluations.

Archive migration work continues though it is slow going at the moment. We’re hoping to get things squared away ASAP for the server migration.

USS Chernov

The Chernov is currently listed as vacant, though the CO is petitioning for self-sim. This idea is in debate between GMD, FComm, and CO. The main concern is prioritizing ship health. Until we finalize approval or disapproval of any such plan, I’m listing the Chernov as having a vacancy.

Thank you, Sam!

I’m curious – do you think a discussion might be warranted on what criteria a ship should meet before going self-sim? I think that it can be very easy to want to fall back on that status if you can’t find a GM when it may or may not be appropriate for the ship.


I’d like to respectfully point out that the GM Department MOTD still lists the Viking as having a GM vacancy and no mention of the Chernov.



Thank you for pointing that out Russell, I’ll get that corrected shortly.

Sarah, I think such a discussion may be warranted. A CO wanting to go self-sim instead of waiting for a GM to be placed is understandable, but it may not be the best alternative. We may want to clear up at least a set of flexible guidelines to follow in the future.


I’m GMing the Viking now…

I am aware of that Luke. The GMD MOTD has been updated to reflect it.
