IC vs. OOC
The difference between awards, badges, service ribbons, pennants, and commemorative coins:
- awards and badges: Presented for OOC accomplishments by an individual simmer/writer. Awards and badges can be displayed on any and all characters' pages and the user page of that simmer/writer.
- service ribbons: Presented for IC performed by a specific character. Service ribbons can only be displayed on that specific character's page.
- pennants: Presented for OOC accomplishments by a ship/station/installation. Pennants are displayed on the page of the ship or station itself.
- commemorative coins: Presented for OOC accomplishments as a fleet. Coins are displayed on any and all characters' pages and user pages of simmer/writers who were present for the fleetwide accomplishment or event.
