Columbia Player Achievements

Columbia Player Achievements



Columbia Player Achievements are player achievements that can be earned by USS Columbia players for completing IC or OOC objectives and challenges.

Columbia Player Achievements are OOC accolades awarded by the Columbia command staff to players. If a player believes they have earned an achievement, they can notify the Columbia command staff by email and include the link to the supporting sim or documentation. Columbia Player Achievements are tracked on a spreadsheet/leaderboard so that players can keep track of achievements they have earned.

Displaying Achievements


Each Columbia Player Achievement is awarded with an icon. They can be displayed wherever the player would like, such as on his/her user page, character’s bio, or forum signature. All icons are made by Freepik from www.flaticon.com.

To easily display a Columbia Player Achievement on the wiki, use the COPA template by simply writing: {{COPA|Name of the Achievement}}

For instance,

{{COPA|New kid on the block}}

creates:

 
New kid on the block

And you can list them in a row or in a table:

{|
|{{COPA|New kid on the block}}
|{{COPA|Friendly Faces}}
|{{COPA|A Spot of Tea}}
|}
 
New kid on the block
 
Friendly Faces
 
A Spot of Tea

Optional SIM link


You can also add the link to the SIM in which you earned that achievement by adding SIM=URL of the sim. For instance:

{{COPA|New kid on the block|SIM=http://sims.starbase118.net/posts/1996080}}
