Rules

Code of Conduct

1: Respect everyone who is part of the USS Tucker sim. Harassment and discrimination is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
2: We are rated 222, per the guidelines of the RPGRating system. This means that: swearing is generally permitted with some limitations. Sexual content is permitted with some limitations. Explicit violence is permitted.
3: Be sure to enjoy yourself!

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.
4: Despite being a Starfleet Intelligence vessel, please no connections with Section 31.

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: 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.
3: 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.
4: 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.

Posting Rules:

1: Writers are expected to post at least once every 14 days (this is not the case if players are part of big joint posts that are taking time), and should reply to TAGs within three days.

Date Format:

Please include the date and time on your posts in the appropriate place. We use the Earth calendar format and not stardates (unless you want to include a stardate within a post, like an official or personal log entry). The CO uses “5 April 2385, 1730 hours” as a structure, but do not be beholden to it.

If any posts go out without a date/time, 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, please message one of the command team for assistance!

Warnings
1) Warnings will be given to any player who goes against any of these rules.
2) This sim operates on a three strikes policy. This means you get three warnings.
3) Failure to comply with the rules following your 3rd warning will result in your removal from the sim.
