We're coming to the very end of all the announcement posts, and we beg your forgiveness for the massive amounts of information dumping we're doing!

First off, we would like to announce a change in the schedule for moving. DON'T FRET! The DW comms will still open tonight after midnight, EST. However, we'll be closing the LJ comms tonight as well. Permanently. We'll be closing up shop around 10:00 pm EST to do one final comm importing, and that will be that. SO REJOICE, MY STARSIANS. WE ARE NEARLY DONE!

Our second announcement is that Hannah will be stepping down as a mod. :c She'll still be around as a helper mod, but that mostly includes whipping us remaining mods into shape and NPCing Resmi and Dragoon. So she will not be available for answering mod questions. 

Our third announcement: App Cycles! We talked about these early in December, and now we have more information on them. During the last week of every month, reservations will open. You will have one week for your reserve, and then will be offered a three day extension on your reserve. The following week, the first week of the new month, applications will open. You will be free to drop in your applications at any time during that week they're open, and we will review them as soon as we can.

Numero Cuatro: There have been some changes made to the FAQ concerning our new rules with death. Now that Revan is no longer in charge and Malak has taken over, the galaxy will take a turn for the darker side of things. Deaths can still occur. However, you must speak with the mods before this happens. Because Malak will not be as lenient as Revan, your character will need to have someone make a deal on their behalf in order to be brought back to life. The death will be considered permanent otherwise, so talk to us beforehand!

Finally! Yes, there is an end! We will be putting the calendar up very soon with our plans for February! Yaaaay~

We love you all, and thank you for sticking with us during these trying times.

If you have any questions / comments / concerns, please either comment here or email us at theoldcoots@gmail.com!

P.S. If you haven't done so yet,  please refer to this post for replying to taken, player contact, and joining the new game comms, or you won't be able to play at CS!

My darling Starsians!

We're almost ready for the big move~ Your mods have been busy little bees, getting everything prepared on Dreamwidth so that we can open the game on the new site by Monday!

Now, I know all of you are wondering: well, what about Activity Check? Good question! Never fear. By replying to the taken and player contact pages, your character passes Acitivity Check for January! Simple as that.

As a further note for those unfamiliar with how DW works: we personally can't turn off custom pages on the comms. You will have to turn them off through each of your own journals. Go to account settings > display > view entry style > drop down menu to 'site skin. Voila!  And then Christina was awesome and saved the mods from being dumb. Nevermind. c:

And without further ado, please join the following game comms:

Announcements, OOC, Datapads, Logs, and Crack.

Once you have been accepted to the comms, and this is very important, please reply to the appropriate canon for your character on the Taken comm and reply to player contact with your appropriate information.

If you do not comment to either of these things, you will fail AC and be considered dropped. You'll have until February 1st to reply.

Look forward to more mod announcements in the future! We like to torture you all~

If you have any questions, please direct them to this post or email us at theoldcoots@gmail.com.

EDIT: REMINDER! You are not allowed to post to the comms until January 23rd. We will make an announcement for the official opening!

Greeting, Starsians! This is an important notice from your mods regarding our final decision about whether or not to move to Dreamwidth. Please note that as this is our last word on the matter, the time for discussion is now over. Having taken into consideration the services that both Livejournal and Dreamwidth offer, the poll we put up a week ago and the discussion points the playerbase has brought up, the mods have decided that we will be moving to Twitter Dreamwidth.

While we understand that this is not a decision that will please everyone, we feel that it is the best choice in regards to our playerbase and the game as a whole.

The move will officially take place on Monday, January 23rd. That means that any new posts or logs will have to be on our Dreamwidth comms rather than on Livejournal. The 23rd will also be when we open up reserves again.

Backtagging on the LJ comms will take place until February 1st. After the 1st of February, there should be no more tagging on the LJ comms. It will be our last day of importing anything that has taken place on datapads and thestarmaps.

By next week, we will have the appropriate posts – taken and player contact – ready for everyone who is making the move with us to Dreamwidth to comment to. At the time, you will be able to join our new comms as well!

If you haven't yet done so, Dreamwidth still has an open account creation going on for the foreseeable future. And don't worry, once invite codes are enabled again, getting a few will not be a problem~

For those of you who are unfamiliar with DW in any capacity, here are a few resources to help you along as you take a stroll over the site:

The Guide to DW for LJ users
DW FAQ Guides
The RP Guide to DW

We'd also like to announce that we're taking this opportunity to begin cleaning house - change a few things, update the FAQ - for our new move. More information on this will be given next week!

If you have any questions or concerns, please ask them here or email us at theoldcoots@gmail.com. We'll get back to you as soon as we can.

Drops and Hiatuses MUST be posted to our Drop/Hiatus entry.

If you do not post to that entry, and instead simply post to the OOC comm, then it it not counted! The mods are not responsible for going through the comms to see if you posted.

We have divided the list of results into three sections. Please check under the cut for the Activity Check results:

exempt, dropped, and savedCollapse )

If you have proof of your activity in order to be able to be accepted back into the game, please link proof of your activity on this entry. You'll have until January 10th at 11:59pm EST to reply here with your links.

If you see any mistakes on the list, please let us know!

RE: saves. You are able to gain your save back after using it. You have to pass two Activity Checks in a row in order to gain back a save you've used. For example, you ask for a save for this month. Next month, you will have to provide three links of activity. The following month, if you pass AC, you will gain your save back. 

If you're unsure about anything, please feel free to leave them on this post as well, or email your mods at theoldcoots@gmail.com!

Stay astral!

Hey CS! The mods here, bringing you all of the information for your dramatic battle needs – if you have any questions after this, please feel free to ask in the comments.

First things first, the strike teams! Unfortunately not everyone who volunteered to be a leader was able to have a leadership position, but both leaders and teams were picked entirely by the random number generator. They are as follows, with the leaders in bold:

cut for length!Collapse )

War has shrouded the galaxy before the Outworlders even arrived, but the tempo has sped up. Armies are on the move, secret missions have been undertaken, and a galaxy-wide draft has been enabled. And finally... Finally it seems as though the Republic will make its move. A daring one.

They've discovered the location of Revan's ship.

And they're sending a small fleet to meet with him...

In battle.

More under this cut~Collapse )

[Someone’s got that tired look back in his eye, although he’s looking very professional, sitting upright and not fiddling with his datapad like he usually does. He clears his throat as the opening music dies, and launches straight into his piece. There’s no mention of where he was last week, or why he’s late this week]

My dear viewers, I’ve tried my utmost to remain an objective – if unnecessarily humorous – source of news since my predecessor Emer Ikuh, well, became my predecessor. What with the war situation being as it is right now, however, candour compels me to clarify that I am, in fact, a Revan supporter. And have been ever since he defended our galaxy from the Mandalorians.

That said, I’d appreciate it if no one tried to bomb my office after this.

Other than that, the only piece of news I really have to bring you this week is that the Sith are still seeking volunteers, and are as always, welcoming of those Jedi who find themselves dissatisfied with the tenets of either of the Orders currently in place.

That’s Demos Kraci, out.

Hello, Starsians! Welcome to ACTIVITY CHECK! For December. :D

So, here's how this is going to work. Everyone will need to post a comment in this post between now and January 7th at 11:59 pm, EST with proof of their activity in the game. After that, this post will be locked.

The following is a list of acceptable proof:

☄A log tag
☄A journal post
☄A narrative post
☄An action/quick log tag

+5 Journal Comments

Remember: you will need to supply two links of activity from now on. EDIT: For the month of December, you only need to provide one link of activity. Those who asked for saves don't have to provide their three links until January AC. Those who apped into the game during this month will also be exempt.

If you were on hiatus for over half of one part of the activity period (two weeks would be half), your character is exempt for that period. This extends to character deaths and characters apped within the last two weeks of the month as well.

If your character did not make activity for the month, you can ask for a save. It can only be used once. If you ask for a save for your character, you will need to provide us with three links of activity for the following month.
Anyone who does not post to this comment with their proof of activity will be auto-dropped. If that occurs, you may post with your proof after the 8th.

Below is the handy-dandy text box needed for the activity check!

Applications are now closed until the first week of February! Reserves are closed until the last week of January!

Well, I did warn you to be on the lookout!

If everyone could have a look at the player contact and make sure your information is correct, I'd be eternally grateful! ♥ A-J and K-Z.

On the same note, just to make sure, if you haven't replied to taken or there is something that needs to be updated, please let me know! A-L and M-Z.

Thank you, darlings~
