Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to remind everyone that promotion and award recommendations are due by June 15th. I also wanted to make sure you know that promotion recommendations should have detailed information about why the person deserves the promotion. The fact that their Time In Grade is up should not really appear as a reason, please tell us what the person has done that is noteworthy. For example:

The person is helpful - Give us specific examples of how they have been helpful.

The person is good at their job - Write examples that illustrate this.

The person has leadership ability - Tell us specific things that show us their leadership ability.

If the descriptions are not detailed enough I will contact you via email to give more explanation.

If you are uncertain about what to write, there is an excellent explanation here: https://wiki.ufstarfleet.org/index.php? ... mmendation

If, after reading that you still are unsure, please feel free to contact me.

In Service to the Fleet,

A reminder to the reminder that hopefully reminds mindfully...

=====F I V E D A Y S L E F T ======

As of today, 220611, and including today, you only have FIVE DAYS LEFT to get your promotion and award requests in. PLEASE be sure that you give SPECIFIC reasons and EXAMPLES in your requests. Remember, I am not alone on the promotion and awards board and I need to make a case for each promotion and/or award. Only with your well thought out and explained information can I do that. Things that can help:

1)Their contributions to UF Starfleet and their duty station, including specific examples
2)Their reliability for completing tasks, be specific and give examples
3)Their conduct with examples of exemplary conduct
4)Their specific duties, what do they do, how do they do it, how do they go above and beyond
5)Regular reporting for Missions/Personal Logs (while not a Promotion Requirement this can provide valuable background if it is available, as well for some awards it would be critical).

Time is running out! If you are having difficulty or had a promotion request sent back and don’t understand how to fix it, contact me and I will happily help you.

I also want to point out that if you wait until the day they are due, if there are errors, omissions, etc. that will result in the recommendation being rejected I will not be able to ask for more input or a correction which will result in the recommendation being rejected for the month with no do-overs.

In Service,

HEY HEY! Welcome to the 17th of June!

The form for JULY PROMREQS and AWARDREQS is now open. This means you have FOUR (4) [IV] weeks to get your PROMREQS and AWARDREQS in.

You can input them and if the whoever you nominate flakes out on you, you can contact me and withdraw it... really!

Please be sure to check the requirements here: https://wiki.ufstarfleet.org/index.php?title=Rank_Chart
and here: https://docs.google.com/document/u/2/d/ ... 62Ielc/pub

And before you say, "I don't need to look at that, I know the rules" don't be so sure. I had quite a few people last month who misread or misunderstood the requirements.

As always, contact me on DISCORD, by email at promotions@ufstarfleet.org or in world in Second Life if you have questions or concerns.

Get 'em in early! Form closes on July 15th at midnight Second Life Time.

Waiting until the last minute will result in me berating you for the four weeks of the following month. ;)

You can also see the full reasons that a promotion might be considered and granted here: https://wiki.ufstarfleet.org/index.php? ... Promotions

If you are having difficulty writing it, you can check the Promotions and Awards manual here: https://wiki.ufstarfleet.org/index.php? ... ons_Manual and/or there are tips on writing recommendations in my post here: viewtopic.php?f=851&t=33642 you can also contact me at promotions@ufstarfleet.org

Ok… so today is the 8th of the month.

All Promotion Recommendations and Award Recommendations are due by 23:59 Second Life Time on the 15th of the month.

I will spell things out again, just to make sure they are understood. If PromReqs and AwardReqs come in on the 14th or 15th, I will not be contacting you if they are incomplete or in error.

This means:

If they don’t have all the necessary recommendations needed for the rank… DENIED.

If they candidate does not have an up to date service jacket it is possibly… DENIED.

If the recommendations are not complete and/or do not included the proper information possibly… DENIED.

If the Time In Grade has not been achieved… DENIED.

If there are errors or other problems that affect the integrity of the award or promotion… DENIED.

If they come in one second after midnight second life time… DENIED at least until next month.

The promotion and award recommendations move DIRECTLY into deliberation and voting the day after the deadline expires. They will not be held.

PLEASE, if you are having trouble and that is why you have not yet submitted your Promotion or Award recommendations contact me at promotions@ufstarfleet.org or via Discord.

Otherwise, stop reading this and get on it.

Hello all!

One of the things that I think was so amazing at the Promotions and Awards Ceremony was hearing the Citations and Commendations, having people actually being told why they were being given those awards was amazing! Thank you Kermie for doing that. We had a number of amazing citations and commendations this month and I’d love to see them keep coming! Remember Citations are for the everyday excellence you see and Commendations are for people who go a little bit beyond. It is good for people to be noticed and celebrated for the good things they do!

Here is the worksheet if you need help with citations: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Ptn ... mrFQk/edit

Here is the worksheet if you need help with commendations: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1lYk ... srLZ4/edit

And here is the worksheet if you need help with awards: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1wHl ... KNKo4/edit

I am currently working on something more complete for promotions, but a worksheet proved too complicated, so you can refer to my earlier post here for promotions: viewtopic.php?f=851&t=33642

So as of today we are FIFTEEN (15) (XV) days away from the August due date for promotions and Awards! Remember, I will help anyone who needs it up until three days before the due date, so if you send them in before August 12th and there is a problem with them, I can contact you and give you some help fixing them, if you wait until after the 12th, you are on your own. Promotion and award requests that are denied usually are for technical reasons, so it is in your best interest to get them done early and get the extra assistance.

Promotion and Award Requests can be filed here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIp ... A/viewform


Get filing folks! The clock is ticking!

So here we are again all my friends!

The countdown is on!

You have until August 15th to get those Promotion and Award Recommendations in!

Remember, I will help anyone who needs it up until three days before the due date.

This means that if you send them in before August 12th and there is a problem with them, I can contact you and give you some help fixing them, if you wait until after the 12th, you are on your own.

I have already had a few instances where early submission has averted near disaster (well, not really disaster, but a huge waste of time).

Get 'em in! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIp ... A/viewform

In case anyone forgot...

The Promotions and Awards for September have started being collected.

It is always better to file these things early as there are almost always some issues that have to be worked out so they have their best chance of passing through. There are several worksheets available:

Here is the worksheet if you need help with citations: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Ptn ... mrFQk/edit

Here is the worksheet if you need help with commendations: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1lYk ... srLZ4/edit

And here is the worksheet if you need help with awards: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1wHl ... KNKo4/edit

Please refer to my earlier post here for promotions: viewtopic.php?f=851&t=33642

So as of today we are TWENTY(20) (XX) days away from the September due date for promotions and Awards! Remember, I will help anyone who needs it up until three days before the due date, so if you send them in before September 12th and there is a problem with them, I can contact you and give you some help fixing them, if you wait until after the 12th, you are on your own. Promotion and award requests that are denied usually are for technical reasons, so it is in your best interest to get them done early and get the extra assistance.
