So I was thinking about the pm template that radiance made.. Actually it's not all that bad.. Maybe I'll stick to that?.. Will come up with a more finalized version later.. Kinda got caught up in work a bit

It would be lovely to train a new person how to be a team captain. You would be the official captain, so you can see the special team-choosing screens. You'd pm me the data, hopefully as screen captures.

We've set up the TG.. Will send out passwords to guys already signed up soon..

Once AmoebA and I sign up. Erwin can set us as captains too (only in the sense that we tell the codes who goes to which teams)

To Do:
» Create galaxy, define starting date(!), set password, open for sign up (Confused)
» Blurb (Ting)
» Define message for the password PM (Ting)

» Pick two Leaders for each team, or distribute experienced players(!) (needs to be discussed)
» Set one of the Leaders in each Team to select players (needs Erwin intervention)

..

Observations:
» Probably better to have the word "Team" in the name of the galaxy.
» The current starting date would mean reshuffle by next Tuesday. I believe we need more time.
» If we are setting [Ting, Confused] vs [Radiance, AmoebA] as fixed Leaders, we should probably be careful about balance (imo, it is probably better to explicitly ensure it). The idea was to set two pairs of experienced players, and that would already be a step towards some equilibrium that would be continued by drafting. As it stands, I don't see it happening naturally - for instance, am wondering about the effect of joining the galaxy myself.

» The sign up list needs to be updated. dodgex said she will not be playing, and IceCoolPT probably does not know that sign up involves writing his name into the list.

Aha, I see the galaxy! Smile

Am updating the sign up list (--dodgex), and signing up myself then.

IceCoolPT, please add your name to the list to confirm your participation (we will need Erwin's intervention here too, because of rank).

Note: As a player, I will be available to assume any role in advance if that would help to create balance.

Well, this is the PM template that I settled with.. Probably needs some fixing.. but I guess it'll do for now I hope..

Hi everyone,

First of all, thanks for signing up to the Open Sesame TG!

To make the team galaxy an enjoyable experience for everyone, we do have a few expectations from players who join these galaxies. We would be glad if you could kindly go through the few points below, and acknowledge by signing up for the galaxy with the password at the end of this message. We hope to see you there !

To make team galaxies enjoyable for everyone:
  • 1. Create a dedicated thread for yourself in the private team forums, and post a brief summary of your empire's status at least every 25 turns of game-time. Private team forums are open 3 days before the galaxy starts. The summary should at least include:

    i) The turn the report is made
    ii) The technologies you have researched,
    iiia) Stats of your fleets and where they're heading to (for shipbuilders)
    iiib) Your resource output and resources in stock (for miners)

  • 2. Check your dedicated thread in the private team forums for any messages that your teammates have specifically addressed to you.

  • 3. If you will be unavailable from the game for a period of time (e.g. if you are unable to log in to the game for a few days due to real-life commitments), kindly let your teammates know in advance that you'll be away.

  • 4. Before the start of the game, kindly discuss your role in the team with your teammates before setting your civilization traits and homeworld stats. The "Decide Later" button allows you to postpone the decision.

  • 5. [Optional]Note that approximately a day before the galaxy starts, you will be assigned a new position in the galaxy. You will need to reissue ship orders and set an empire name before the start of the game. Check with your team if your teammates are choosing a theme for their civilization names.


That's it. If you agree to these points, then head on over to the galaxy and signup with this password.

Password: *hidden*

Have fun and good luck!

Ok, I'm off to a fine start: it says that *hidden* is not the correct password when I try to sign up.

@MikeT

The password is *hidden* here, but it will be revealed to all participants in a private message. Ting was just announcing the text we will be using with that PM. Wink

The galaxy is invisible to IceCool because of his rank.

Oops.. And I actually wrote it's open to all ranks on the front page :p

Can we still change the rank settings in the galaxy? I think we can't can we? I kinda forgot

Shouldn't make a difference what rank we set it as right? Since it's password protected + the fame points are fixed
