4. All members of the simm are encouraged to use the sim's Mission Date format, or MDs, in the Timeline Section when posting. MDs help to establish a timeline and help maintain continuity within the various storylines. Only the Commanding Officer, or Executive Officer may advance the Mission Date to the next day.

5. All members of the simm are required to post three times a month. While higher posting rates are strongly encouraged, no member will be penalized if they meet the requirements. Tags need to be replied to within 2-3 days if you can not reply please use Discord to alert the other players in the post so they know what is going on.

6. A player who is unable to post for a period of time may ask for a Leave of Absence (LOA) from the sim’s Command Staff. The request should indicate when the player expects to return. When sending your requests please ensure you email both the CO and XO. Please use the #loa-crew channel in Discord to announce your leave.

7. Players may earn strikes/warnings due to inactivity, or other professional conduct violations. Strikes/Warnings stay on record for a period of six months.

All players removed from the simm for negative reasons will be placed on a 90 ban before they are able to re-apply to the simm.

8. Character Pics are encouraged, but must be of a tasteful manner. No nudity, overly sexual, or nasty images will be permitted. Acceptability will be at the discretion of Command Staff; unsuitable images will be removed without warning. The Nogura allows 1 (one) image per active character or npc that you play. Deleted, removed, or inactive characters will have their images removed.

Character image pics must be named after the character's last name. For example, Commodore Harrington's image will be named harrington.jpg; this make future clean up easier on the Command Staff. In order to get your character image uploaded to the site, please send it to a member of the Command Staff and they will upload and update your bios.
