Another lifer - Arrow - 10-26-2014

Hi people, I've just gotten back into STO after a pretty long-ass hiatus. Truth be told I forgot when I first joined, but it was way back when Encrypted Data Chips were how you got Mark XII gear from MACO and Omega on Deep Space Nine.

My girlfriend and I are getting back into STO 'cause she loves VOY to death (we're both lifers, actually). We're looking for a community again after our last one collapsed on itself and after our long hiatus.

She goes by @lepetitedauphin and I go by @evertsen. We're usually, but not always, on at the same time (occasionally I pop on her account to rig up DOFFs and reputation).

I guess the main reasons I decided to pop in and say hello were threefold:

-To find a new community, as I said
-To assist new players; funnily enough, this is how I met my girlfriend
-To find an environment suitable for technical writing practice.

I've actually worked on one guide in particular (found at https://www.strategywiki.org/wiki/BSP) that got me official recognition from Eidos. If you play that game, you'll find me in the credits (along with a few other key community members). In light of that, I decided to take technical writing as an actual course, which is what I'm doing now (post-grad certificate).

Anyway, yah.

As you might have seen, the STO Academy has a very active fleet and we welcome all members. We'd be happy to have both of you. As for the technical writing practice, feel free to write and post on these forums even if you don't join our fleet.

If you and your girlfriend decide to join us, please send me a message in game at [email protected]_stoa and I'll send you both an invite.

The forums seem a little dead, though?

It happens.  RL gets in people's way a fair bit. 

Another lifer here too as it happens.  Been on pretty consistently for the last couple of years.  I'm usually found prowling the stars sometime between midnight and 2am US Central Time.

Welcome to the party, enjoy!

That depends on your meaning of "dead". Compared to the official STO forums, yeah probably lol but I do know that fleet members come here, people who want their builds reviewed, etc.


RE: Another lifer - Arrow - 10-27-2014

That makes sense. I sent a response to Attilio but he hasn't gotten back to me yet. It's also possible we both need to be online at the same time to receive fleet invites. I don't really know since I've never been in a position to send them =P


RE: Another lifer - Attilio - 10-27-2014

No you don't need to be online at the same time as me to receive the invite. I can send it at any time and you'll see the invite next time you sign on. It's Monday so I'm at work. I'll send you the invite later tonight after I get home.
