Formatting your Sims

The 'Oumuamua SIM format corresponds with that used in the academy and detailed in Training Tutorial 1.

Subject Lines

A typical subject line for a sim on the 'Oumuamua will look like

Character Rank and Name: Sim Title

For example:

You do not need to specify if the character is an NPC, PNPC, or MSPNPC in the subject line. If a sim is particularly long or you are writing a joint post with someone else, split the sim into two parts and label them in the title:

  • JP: Ens. Promontory & Ens. Vomek: The Fun Begins (Part 1)
  • JP: Ens. Promontory & Ens. Vomek: The Fun Begins (Part 2)

No Tags or Location Markers in the Subject Line

Aboard the 'Oumuamua, we do not list characters that are tagged for a response in the subject line, and we do not list the location of the sim in the subject line.

In part, this is to encourage everyone to read each sim. You never know when you might want to tie in something that someone else has introduced in another scene or another location, even if it isn't a direct tag for your character! (And if someone =/\= Hails you through the comms system =/\= you should incorporate those tags as well.)

Bolding vs. Non-Bolding

Do not bold entire paragraphs. Common uses of bolding include:

  • Location headers: ((Bridge, Deck 1, USS Oumuamua))
  • Signatures
  • Some simmers use them to distinguish speaking tags, as in: Promontory: This guide is super helpful!
