Before you post
Be sure to read all rules posted to the list, first. If the list requires membership and/or approval, be courteous in your introductory message and simply ask for membership to find new, interesting groups, and to publicize your own. It's important to read any literature the moderator sends you, so that you don't post anything they don't approve.
Before you send a post to the list, review the archive for at least the last 20 posts. Look at how others are posting and consider whether or not our post is appropriate.
One bad posting can do more damage than not posting at all; so always follow the rules.
Always maintain a respectful tone in any communications with other members and/or moderators. If an issue arises, do not become belligerent, and do not argue with anyone. Simply thank them for the opportunity to post, apologize (even if you think you were in the right!), and bow out quickly. Remove yourself from the list if necessary. Remember that you're an ambassador for our community, and if a public argument arises, it can make us appear in an unsavory light.
Always follow the policies on the frequency of posting. While the practice of posting as often as possible may seem tempting, we want to present ourselves in a manner that suggests our community is both strong and active. We do not want to "flood" our advertisement.
Please post the following text in entirety, unless otherwise instructed:
We are a community of people who love writing and Star Trek. We've been together as a group since June of 1994 and have enjoyed years of simming under a highly trained command staff. Our group offers an extensive and complete training course upon acceptance that will acclimatize you to our rules and ways of simming. We also offer a very active forum, an online database to organize your character's information, and of course, a ship to suit your simming style. Our group's minimum age requirement is 13, and we are rated PG-13 for content. We'd love to have you join our group. See you soon at http://www.starbase118.net/.
