If anyone has ideas on how to expand and improve this, please let me know.

II. Announcements

A. RP Clearance and General Info

In our haste and excitement to devise the greatest mission ever created, it is wise to slow down and make sure proper procedures are followed. Remember that RPs that involve other commands, i.e. a ship and a station, or multiple ships should be cleared through Strategic OPs. It may be a wise recourse just to make sure you aren't infringing on another's idea, or worse possible copyright/trademark infringements. Therefore try to keep these simple steps in mind.

1. Talk over your mission ideas with your CO.
He/she may have specific ideas, or may know of other commands working on a similar arc.

2. Do not embark on an independent RP and begin involving other commands, such as stations.
Most commands have a common and regular system of reporting incidents. Involving others in a non-sanctioned RP without their knowledge
is more than just being discourteous

3. When in doubt -- ask. COs, Branch Commanders, and the office of Chief of Operations exist as a resource for all the players in UFS.

The first goal is to have fun and enjoy yourself, but it is prudent to remember that the best fun is one enjoyed by all, and remebering a few simple steps, and I am sure there are more, can help make everyone's experience long and prosperous.

If you have read this far, thanks so much for looking at what I hope is only the first of many "Notes from Sio'" and if anyone has suggestions for a snazzier title, please shoot me an IM in world or PM here.

Live, Long, Prosper, and have Fun,

FCAPT Siobhan Crystal
Branch Commander UFS Security
