    Community Meeting: March 2019


    SATURDAY, MARCH 9th 2019 at 21:00 UFP (16:00 EST)
    ATTENDEES: Jonathan, Jordan, Lazereth, Petrarch, Sammygm, ThreeOfSeven, Asteropax, Bedders, Bridger, EnlistedNut, Mack, Noram, Novalance, Saelanna, Brask, Infinity, Stormy, Chugster, Jestersmith

    NOTE: All text in yellow represent meeting action points.

    APOLOGIES
    • JCarrillo

    FLEET ADMIRAL UPDATES/ANNOUNCEMENTS
    • Three of Seven asked JCarrillo to provide text to his submitted agenda item, however he did not do this, so his agenda item will not be raised. If no one passes details on for their agenda item, it will not be discussed.
    • A preview of a Tabletop Simulator mod has been shown to subscribers (https://ufplanets.com/showthread.php?73240) more will be done as we remember. Jordan doesn’t tell us when he has done nice things, so we can’t post them, and he doesn’t make announcements because he is mean.
    • Bit of a moderator incident took place requiring FEO to be involved as well, mentioned more by Jonathan, in limited detail.

    Divisional Updates

    Federation Executive Officers
    • Community Administration: Annual accounts submitted to Companies House. A few moderator issues which have been adequately dealt with, which involved full FEO involvement.
    • Community Development: Draft update of the common FAQ almost completed, should have that up in FEO for discussion/revision in the next couple of days. Giveaway raffle going well, over 100 entries. Ares matters are back in hand. Otherwise largely quiet and further updates will follow as I get to them on my to-do list.
    • Community Gaming: UFPAC events planning is in full swing. Like the previous UFPAC, I’m hoping to see plenty of fun community oriented events. There are currently 3 events planned, one of them being the main Pre-UFPAC event. I’d like to ask the gaming command staff to task their event staffs to organise events.
      I’m hoping to push for more other types of games like Boardgames, which ties into the preview that is currently available in the subscriber forum, a Star Trek themed BSG game. https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/...ica-board-game

    • Community Technical Services & Security:

    QUICK UPDATES
    • Star Trek Online:
      • Starfleet Operations:
        • Everything is going great with STO on an in-game level. This include Staff Operations both in and out of game. Couple of ‘Leave on Absences’ which will be further looked into upcoming STO Staff review after the UFPAC.
        • Had to deal with a recent application/member incident in-game, situation was documented
        • Considering changing few rank names - in discussion with CL6
        • Revamped the main invite from being SFO centric a generic STO one
      • House of Kular:
    • Starfleet Holodeck:
      • Hired a new staff member, welcome to SeaPanda.
      • Events such as Killing Floor, Stellaris, SWTOR etc. are all still going strong. Warframe, Anthem, Apex have all been run to mixed attendance.
      • Usual Suggestions thread is available at https://ufplanets.com/showthread.php...New-Game-Ideas
      • d3JuwXH

    • Starfleet Tactical: No update provided
    • ARES Roleplay: We’ve been continuing the story with a space battle starting up. I’m currently working on a couple of behind the scenes needs with selecting a new XO and plan on opening up positions for new Simulations Officers. I’ve also been putting in work to complete an NPC Roster for our supporting characters.
    • Federation News Service: Good amount of news articles made in March, hopefully it keeps up. Additionally, a game review code has been issued to myself, so hopefully that will get some coverage, this is embargoed, so can’t share details.
    • Starfleet Academy: The Academy has been quiet this month. Enlistednut09 has replaced Petrarch as the SFA Commandant. On the hunt for a new XO, have received a few applications already. Recruitment is going well as well as recruit turn-over.
    • External Operations: All good in the hood.

    REVIEW OF PREVIOUS MEETING ACTION POINTS
    • Discussions continuing over planning for April Fools, a couple of ideas have been submitted thus far.

    AGENDA ITEMS

    NOTE: Those who raise the agenda item are expected to help write the minutes for their item.
    • Discussion on a limit of the number of volunteer roles held by an individual person - Tabled by Noram
    • Policy change for CL4 members to submit 1 UFPAC recommendation as a mandatory requirement - Tabled by Bridger

    CL5 OPEN FLOOR
    • New Midas Array Podcast has come out - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHBj8Ls3BAU
    • March 13th is the deadline for UFPAC recommendations, keep them coming in! For clarity, recommendations are not restricted to your individual departments and you can recommend anyone anywhere in the UFP who is CL3 and above who you feel should be recognized.

    SPECIFIC MEMBER QUESTIONS
    Nothing raised

    Bummed I missed this; I was out of state for reserve training. I also unfortunately missed roll call because either my phone's gmail app hates this website, the phone's browser hates the website, or (most unlikely) the website was down each of the three times I tried to log in this month. Unfortunately, military networks block this website under the websense "games," so that wasn't an option, either. I just got in tonight to find out roll call is closed, despite it still being March.

    If there's one bit of feedback I'd like to offer: Either keep roll call open for the whole month that your UFP control panel says it's open, OR the roll call months need to specifically state the date range the roll call is open. Doesn't seem fair to those of us who do actually play here, but are occasionally out of town on military duty and can't log in to the website through usual means.

    Just my 2 EC on that.

    Apart from that, I'm glad to see the fleet is going well. Glad to see the roleplay projects still going, and after my wedding in April, I plan to add more to my USS Phantom lore for STO Smile

    Roll calls have never ran throughout the whole month and have always been open for the first 2 weeks of the month. You can actually find the exact date range on the roll call thread we post in https://ufplanets.com/forumdisplay.php?99-CL3-Roll-Call. If you feel that you will not be able to sign roll call for a specific quarter you can also submit an LOA here.

    I actually had a hard time finding this thread index before; I didn't know it was tucked away in Services until now. Got it bookmarked; thanks! Smile
