New Word count policy

Posted on Tuesday 28 July 2020 @ 17:03 by Commander Melody Jones

Just to advise there has been some changes to how posts are measured brought in by the fleet council.

Taken from the OF announcement:

https://www.obsidianfleet.net/2020/07/10/fleet-council-vote-2020-003-posting-count/

Going forward the Fleet Council has voted that we will be measuring by words. There are many reasons for moving to this but the biggest one is simple some ships do massive posts of 5000 – 7000 words but they keep it together. It seems unfair as some Commanding Officers have different styles and that work should be recognised as they have spent weeks and weeks crafting something that they only have one post.

So going forward from August 1st 2020 every 500 words will act as a post so if you have a post of say 1500, it would class as three posts. What would not count under this change is signatures at the end of posts and posts used as a timeline.

We want to level the playing field and give everyone the same chance now as was requested in the survey from fleet members. We know going forward with the new version of Nova that we will have this ability at our fingertips but we have no idea how far off that all is or if everyone will be using Nova as we encourage other simming systems.

Please be aware everyone that each player is now expected to contribute a minimum of 1000 words a month.
