It's up to the Command Staff of the individual simm(s) if they want 5, 10 or even 15 missions per season. At one time but it's lost now, Discovery was doing 12 to 14 missions in Season 1 and 2. Another factor that plays a part is how active the crew of the simm(s) is.

Hello,

I had this same misconception.  I mistook a custom for a rule, and then was educated that the CO's have discretion in this matter. 

On the topic of website and forum improvements, I know that when we comment on a thread, then that thread will appear under 'Show new replies to your posts.'   Is there a way to deselect the 'following' of such a thread?   I once accidentally commented on another ship's discussion thread, and that thread has forever appeared in 'Show new replies to your posts' and I would be grateful for the opportunity to somehow deselect it from being followed.

Cheers!

Signature Tag Banner Adjustment
« Reply #37 on: October 31, 2017, 01:30:53 AM »
Slightly Larger Signature Tag Banners.

Hello!

Some of the names are rather long, and it is necessitating extra lines for the signature tag.  (Or altering the kerning which squishes the spacing of letters, or alternate font size to allow all the letters to fit, etc.)

I would like to propose this modified Signature Tag Banner which is 10% bigger than the existing banner, and may solve the problem.

It would also allow for marginally larger character portraits. (About 100 pixels tall.)

I love the idea of making the sig cards a bit bigger, but another thing might be to stop putting the rank in the name/assignment area altogether. It's a little redundant seeing as how we have a pic of the rank right beside the character.

I'd like to one up this idea as well.

I'm not sure about this idea, I'm quite happy with the way it's already set out. However, the bigger ID cards sounds like a good idea to fit larger names on.

I rather prefer the written reminder of the rank along with the name..  I've gotten the pips wrong in the past... (oopsie!)

I like them the size they are.
Anyhow, any size changes would add a lot of work to Naira’s (and anyone else’s) plates.

I'm sure the way they could implement it was by just using the new one for any newly requested cards. If someone has one already, they don't need a new one just because the size has changed.

Hello,

I didn't mean to suggest we would re-make all existing cards.  I really just want to be authorized to make cards in the larger size when it would be beneficial to do so.

Cheers!

Ah, that makes a bit more sense on your train of thought

I prefer uniformity with the ID cards. With very few exceptions they have worked well for a long time. Having a portion of the Fleet using different cards was an eyesore and doesn’t look organized. Having said that, if we want to think about a single design for the whole Fleet I wouldn’t be opposed to opening the discussion.

Removing one of the three okudagram ribbons would be a good way to use up more space within the existing image.

I'd rather keep the ranks written out in them, as I don't know any of the rank insignia other than from plain ensign to captain.

As an OCD freak, I like uniformity, so I would prefer the same format be used (but I can also see sometimes where a bit longer may be a must)
