  TO  All Fleet
FROM  Vice Admiral Zachary O’Connell

 VIA  Fleet Command

As the month of June ends, the Bravo Fleet Admiralty is pleased to announce a couple of By-Law changes related to character and command limits.

In regards to the character limits, the BFA took a critical look at Bylaw 1.2.1.2:

A player in BF is allowed to be an active member of no more than 6 simms across BF. Anyone who posts to the simm at least once every 3 weeks is considered an active member of that simm and should be reported in the CO’s monthly report. At the discretion of the CO, a player may control or ‘own’ secondary characters or NPCs on the simm but the player must designate which is his primary character for purposes of promotions, awards, and simm reports.

At the discretion of the CO, a player may control or ‘own’ secondary characters or NPCs on the simm but the player must designate which is his primary character for purposes of promotions, awards, and simm reports.

With changes in the treatment of NPCs, PNPCs and writing styles on our simms in recent yearas, the BFA has determined has voted to abolish this By-law completely. This means that Bravo Fleet no longer enforces a six character per player limit.

In regards to the regulations regarding multiple commands, the BFA reviewed By-Law 1.2.2.6:

  1. No CO shall command more than one simulation in each part (defined below) of Bravo Fleet.
    1. Notwithstanding the above, a CO may command a non-Starfleet simulation in addition to their Starfleet command, or vice versa, in each part (defined below) of Bravo Fleet. The following condition(s) must be met:
      1. Twelve months of active command experience.
      2. Active growth and steady mission progression in current (Starfleet or non-Starfleet) simulation.
  2. Bravo Fleet main and each affiliate are defined as distinct “parts” of Bravo Fleet.

As Bravo Fleet has not had affiliates for several years, and as the BFA has been overriding the rule on multiple occasions, the BFA has updated the By-law to the following:

  1. No CO shall command more than one regular simulation in each Task Force of Bravo Fleet.
    1. Notwithstanding the above, a member of the BFA may command a fiction simulation in addition to their regular command, or vice versa, in the Task Force they command.
    2. A CO, upon approval of the TFCO and BFCC, may hold an additional command within the Task Force. The following condition(s) must be met:
      1. Twelve months of active command experience.
      2. Active growth and steady mission progression in current regular simulation.

This revision allows existing COs a path towards an additional command, as well as officially recognizes practices exercised over the last few years to approve additional commands.

TL;DR

  • Bylaw 1.2.1.2 removed.
  • Bylaw 1.2.2.6 revised.
  • 6 Player Ban Lifted
  • It is now easier for COs to have multiple commands throughout the fleet.
