So, sometimes when I go to post a picture, it just ends up being really huge and overshadows the post. Do you think there could be a way to shrink photos to a reasonable size on here?   I think this would be really handy for a lot of people on this site.

In the first {IMG} tag you can do {IMG width=200} to change an image size.

Could we update or revise the IMs to list on your profile? Maybe it's just me, but I can't even remember the last time I used ICQ, YIM, or AIM...plus MSN Messenger is now actually Skype.

Not sure what everyone else uses, but I tend towards Google chat, Skype, and Discord.

Hi, Caelene,

We do actually use Skype. Most of us here on Shadowfleet are on it and we have a group chat for everyone plus one for each SIMM. Its not on the profiles but we do still use it. If you would like, I could add you to the group if you PM me your Skype details.

I've been sorta trying to get away from Skype some - mostly just have one person on there that I actually talk to. I could get that sorted once I get assigned; appreciate the offer to help.

I still think it'd be nice to update the IMs listed for people in our profiles though. I don't think (could be wrong) many people use ICQ/AIM/YIM anymore, so it seems a bit outdated to have those listed in profiles imho.

And Discord might be a good choice to go to - less resource intensive than Skype and it's a really nice program. I've joined/created a number of servers there (other simming organizations, WoW has servers for each class, some other games I've played are on there, etc). You can pin messages, do more customizing than Skype, etc. :)

Discord is a good idea and could potentially happen one day in the future but right now we are using Skype. Its not mandatory for you to join or anything but we would love to have you join there.

As for updating the IMs, I have no idea how that would work. I've never even paid attention to them.

ICQ, Yahoo, MSN, ectra in profile is hard code. I might be able to rename it but I would have to do it everytime I updated the software.

Ahh okay. I'm familiar with that issue. Well, thought I would ask. I suppose if people used different IMs, they could use the same fields, then just indicate what IM their screenname is actually for.

Ex.  AIM:  Belais#2193 (Discord)

Then it's just slightly more typing for people and no hard coding for each update for you.

To somewhat quote captain Picard: “Shut up, Malcolm.”  :P :D

Have we ever considered making missions 2 months long and shortening seasons to 6 episodes so we can finish a mission without it seeming rushed at the end?

Or at least a longer episode as the 'episode of the season's or something.

Just an idea!

I believe this actually is actually is discretion afforded to Captain's. I do not believe a uniform rule ia good, but allowing for flexibility for the CO to determine what is best for their simm is best. Not all missions will end in a month, which I do agree with you there.

Mr Tritter is right here. Case in point is the Test, who is in the middle of a two month mission.

Also, I believe the Shran's current mission is meant to last two months, but T'Ra or Hawke can correct me if I'm wrong...

I agree that I don't think that this should be a set rule but rather up to each individual Captain based on what they feel works best for their simm. I know some simms move slower and it may feel rushed to move through a mission in one month or maybe they have a rather long and complex mission, but on the other hand, I've been on the Columbus for the past six months now and without fail each month we seem to wrap up each mission by the 25-27th of each month and our crew is waiting to jump onto the next idea  and start a new mission. For us, we'd either have to draw out each mission or add a lot more plot points to them so that our missions didn't become stagnant over the course of two months.

In fact, the other day we were planning out missions for the rest of the year and we'll be cramming in four missions (two of them mini missions) over the next three months because we had so many ideas that people want to play out.
