    The Starship Zeta is off to an amazing start - you all are such great writers. Love the detail and creativity :) You all are really getting into your roles, loving it! :D

    Please note: When you see ------NARRATOR------ that is the call for you to post again :)

    We are timing the story unfolding based on you - when the majority of people have posted at least once then we move forward.

    Special OOC info and instructions are being sent out to players as needed that are important for the story.

    For example, a few days ago I messaged GrannySmoosh, who is playing Khan the Psionocist, about the psychic beacon that had been placed next to the wormhole. She's been including that in her posts :)

    We'll be moving forward again soon! Things always slow down a bit for the weekend ;)

    I just wanted to apologize really quick to everyone for my sluggish replies and low activity. I just got another cat yesterday and my schedule is pretty cramped. Sorry for being a bit slower than usual; I hope to be back to regular pace by the end of the week or so. Thank you!

    Plus the TC Pride lips on my forum signature. That'll never change.

    Ah, or when i first joined? AshWilliams. Gah that was ages ago...

    For the Zeta, Rex was holding the key to the end of the episode... But he has been unresponsive since Sunday night. 

    And I just sat here waiting for him all this time without adapting. Sorry about that! It's something I need to work on - I had limited vision :)

    We're moving forward now :) We'll find a different way to solve the puzzles and traps we put ourselves in, and maybe Rex will appear with Vrux to save the day. But if he doesn't, that's okay.

    Thanks for your patience! We'll now continue with our regularly scheduled broadcast :D

    Evenin, I have one Rp available based in wilderness survival but I will also be creating a second rp as well. Its going to be a Scifi non linear rp based with a mercenary crew surviving and profiting between an intergalactic war both with supply and weapon smuggling; espionage and other types of adventures. If youd like to be a part of it or help create it you're welcome to pm me.

    I apologize for the inconvenience as I've been very busy today and am unable to reply to any roleplays tonight. I hope to be up to reply tomorrow. I hope in the afternoon. I am sorry, and hope I am not causing too much of an issue with my delayed replies as of late. Stay safe, and I'll be back soon!

    This is the first time I see staff warn someone. And it turns out to be Sirius.

    I mean, luckily I got offf with a warning, but I can definitely make sure one of you gets off worse if you pull the stunt he did. The dude literally told me I'm too young for the entire forum, so essentially telling me what/where/who I should and shouldn't do/be/talk to

    Just take it easy bro. Threatening people is not a good way to make friends.

    There will be several spots for the upcoming rp. Between 8-10 individuals.

    I don't really have any horse in this race, and it appears that the controversy has mostly been settled. However, I feel the need to give my opinion on this. 

    While I don't at all support Sirius's vague threats, I generally agree with him on this. It is of course Tork's thread, and he can do with it as he pleases. Furthermore, torn staff agrees with him, making it all very moot. That being said, I do not think that age restricting threads is a good course of action. I have three reasons for this.

    The first is simply that our forum is a part of torn, and torn is a PG13 game. If you meet that PG13 requirement, then the game should be open to you.

    The second is that I categorically am opposed to age discrimination broadly, especially in a setting such as this, where the game is already PG13 restricted. Why does the thread need to be 18+? Are there going to be 18+ scenes or content? If so, it will be in violation of the game rules. Is it because the author prefers more mature participants? I do not think age is an excellent indicator of maturity, as I have met 45 year olds who are incapable of critical thought, and 12 year olds who are much smarter than I will ever be. If it is due to the setting of plane crash survival being simply too much for children, then I would suggest referencing the extremely popular YA novel, Hatchet.

    Third and finally, this is a small forum on a small game. We have worked for years to foster an attitude of acceptance both because it is the right thing to do, and because it is necessary for the forum to have enough participants to meaningfully survive. I have seen the forum effectively dead multiple times, so maybe I have a longer perspective on it than others. Keeping people out of threads because of physical "whats" (IE age/ethnicity/place of residence) about them does nothing to help the forum.

    Now, that all being said, if the real reason for the decision was because Sirius is sometimes argumentative and insulting, then that is a different matter. If that is the case, then I feel the adult move is to simply say that, rather than using age as an excuse. That would be a much more acceptable reason to me for excluding him from a thread.

    I apologize for sticking my nose into this. I suspect that I will regret it.

    It had everything to do with his attitude and nothing to do with his age at first strange, your observation is pretty much on point both objectively to rps and to the situation. It has been dealt with by the administration so the incident is done with. But petty responses from sirius after his reprimandation reaffirm my stance on age restrictions
