» Known SQL Issue

Posted on 13 Sep 2021 @ 3:16pm by Chief Warrant Officer 3 Kevin Roe in OOC Note

Greetings! I am very aware that while submitting a form that is not generally used often there may be an SQL error generated. This is an issue being caused by the transition from web server to web server and me missing a button I had to click in the new servers system which I have never used before. On the bright side while you still may get the error everything still seems to work perfectly. This also does not seem to effect episode posts at all. Should you encounter an error please copy/text the error message and/or screenshot it and create a support ticket for the effected sim on Discord so it can be addressed. I am hoping to fix these as they come up because most of the forms it effects are not used often and it isn't worth tracking it down. Please be sure to copy/paste any large amounts of text you are going to submit PRIOR to submitting it (just in case).

So far these things that are effected are: New wiki articles and LOA Requests

I will update them as I have time and it comes up.

TL;DR: Please keep a copy of non-post information submit through website forms due to an issue that I'll have to track down incident by incident if it's a large block of text/content. Please create a support ticket on discord to report the issue and include the text of the error message and/or screenshot with it.

Posted on 30 Jul 2021 @ 11:34am by Chief Warrant Officer 3 Kevin Roe in 22nd Fleet News

All members of the 22nd Fleet (which includes CGIS) are welcome to join the new Fleet Standards Committee.

Some topics of discussion will include:

• What do we expect from a GM in 22nd Fleet?
• Should visible representation of 22nd Fleet membership be mandatory on member sites?
• What is useful information to share with the fleet in quarterly reports? (Council & GM reports)
• Should 22nd have community based events, workgroups and other non-sim activities? Would you take an active part?
• With a priority to wanting new GMs to be already a member in good standing what else do you think should be required to bring a sim into the fleet?

» PatB Wins Player of Quarter

Posted on 12 Jul 2021 @ 7:27pm by Chief Warrant Officer 3 Kevin Roe in 22nd Fleet News

Congratulations to our very own PatB who plays Special Agent Angelica Passolini on being awarded Player of the Quarter for the 2nd Quarter of 2021 by the 22nd Fleet!


The Player of the Quarter award recognizes a player which has demonstrated excellent or otherwise noteworthy contributions to one or more sims/games during the selected quarter.

Accolade


PatB (Special Agent Angelica Passolini, CGIS) – PatB was immediately interested in the concept of CGIS since I began speaking about it. Not only was he one of the first to join but he also has an interesting character involving family that appears in NPC form. In addition to his performance in character he also was the co-author of some database articles and helpful to research and creation of the sim overall.
