    POSTING METHODS/HOW TO POST

    Post by Tigra Thundera on Sat Jan 07, 2012 9:09 am

    Here's a few things as a reminder of how to write a post. There will be a sample post at the bottom to help you understand for new members.

    1) Always use the ON/OFF tags. This lets other people reading your post know where it begins and ends.

    2) OOC(Out Of Character) tag is used at the beginning of a post to relay any important message that other members may need to know. IE: If you need to explain something about your character or relay an important message to the group about the mission.

    3) The ON tag goes at the start of your In Character post. Always include location tags containing where and when so people will know where you are.
    EX:

    ON:<<USS Scorpio>>
    <Bridge, Day 1, 0730>

    or

    ON:<<Earth>>
    <Starfleet Academy, Day 1, 0730>



    4) When posting an internal though or using telepathy use Italics on that section of the text.

    5) When talking over the commbadge, put text inside one of this symbols =/\=
    EX: =/\= "Tigra to engineering, what the status of the warp core?" =/\=


    6)Actions of a character may be put in this tag *
    EX: *looks around* "Where is Lieutenant Hathaway?"

    7) There are 2 acceptable methods to write a post.
    A) Script - Where you write the chacter name and what they say or do.
    EX: Tigra: "Set a course for Earth, maximum warp."
    Helm Officer: *taps buttons on console* "Yes Sir, Course set."


    B) Third Person POV - Writing in a Novel form.
    EX: Tigra knew they had to hurry up and get to Earth. "Set a course for Earth, maximum warp."
    The young Ensign tapped a few buttons on the console. "Course laid in Sir."



    The following is an example post using Third Person POV:


    OOC: This is our first mission. Welcome to the Scorpio.
    ON: <<USS Scorpio>>
    <CO Ready Room, Day 1, 0730>

    Tigra sat behind his desk going over the new crew files. Interesting, he thought to himself. He tapped a button on the console opening the comm system to the entire ship.

    =/\= "Attention. This is Captain Tigra Thundera. Welcome aboard. All senior staff report to conference room." =/\=

    OFF: Tag everyone
