on How Being in Guilds Helped with My Job

Submission Type:

I had a thought today, at work.
Y'see, when people at work run into various problems, they usually message the supervisors as a big group. Kinda like if people call out into guild chat that they need help. And I noticed today that sometimes, despite there being a very simple three-letter acronym we can use to indicate to the employee asking for help that we're busy (and thus to please hang tight for someone who isn't), a lot of us ... just don't use it that much.
It made me think of how frustrating it can be for people to feel like they're ignored, even though people saw them, they were just busy. And I remembered how folks here were always good about speaking up, even if they're tied up with other stuff.
I am never too busy to type three letters into a message window. I learned that from Trixie, and from y'all, and that thought made me happy today. :) I love you guys.

New CAPTCHA!

Submission Type:
Platform:

I did some work on the back end to replace our old CAPTCHA system for new user registration. It now uses Google's ReCAPTCHA, which is a ton easier to use (no more squiggly lines!). If you know of anyone who's been having trouble accessing the site because of the CAPTCHA, please ask them to try again and see if it works. And if it doesn't, please let me know!

Yeah, we all knew this was coming

Submission Type:

I have never been happy with myself.

For 16+ years, I've hopped from job to job, relationship to relationship, state to state, trying to find my happiness. All throughout that, I've been playing MMOs. I made friends there when I couldn't find any in person. People there didn't judge me; not much, anyway.

And it took a while, but eventually I found you guys. Of all the friends I've made and managed to keep online, you guys are some of the most consistent. You never give me shit for my unpredictable hiatuses, or for being unable to participate due to chronic illness, or for sticking my foot in my mouth due to anxiety. No matter what shit came down the pipeline, you guys stood alongside me with it.

Current information follows:

Zakuul personnel enlisted the aid of several Nar Shaddaa gangs to assist with capturing Keeper Jar’rogen, he was last seen being loaded, unconscious, aboard a ship with Skytrooper droids.

Operation Cat Track

Forces included:
Pair of Skytrooper droids
Unknown human military forces

Operation Sun killer

After extensive research on Eternal Empire technology, including remains of destroyed Star Fortress, and the employment of several highly skilled science teams I have a prototype weapon that should allow us to destabilize the reactor core of a Star Fortress from the outside.

This mission will be the field test of this device, however, should it fail I will need enough personal with me in order to board and destroy the fortress from with-in in order to cover up the test.

Intermission

Submission Type:

Out in a meaningless system of a useless sector floats a nameless, uninhabited lump of rock. Assorted debris orbit it, too small to be moons, too many for anyone to notice one more.

Among the irregular rocks rests a ship, its transponder codes deliberately mangled, exterior markings so marred by scavenging as to be unrecognizable. The few patches of crimson outer hull left are too damaged to be useful to any but the most desperate. Engine casings, modified to accommodate larger and more powerful drives, sit empty. Wires drift in non-existant breezes. Most of the transparisteel viewports are cracked and broken - some from the outside, but alarmingly, most blown out from the inside.

It holds no escape pods. It carries no weaponry.

Pirate Event Part 1- Game of Jawas: One Jawa in the Dead Man's Chest.

The Skull and its crew drew the ire of The Exchange on Tatooine following a raid by Captain Eisley and his First Mate Melkaio, alongside with their Mandalorian friend Telessa. Everything would have been just fine if the Captain woulnd't have pushed the arrogance to the point of leaving a signature to the event as an act of provocation. to be fair they were on his land, they didn't belong there and he had a long going grudge against them.

2nd part of the "In search of the Doctor "

Submission Type:

Information extract from the slaver leads Invicta to where the doctor being held. The event will be held on 8/11/17 at 9pm est. We will start on the ISS Invicta.

Working like a dog

Submission Type:

I was covering one of the job sites for one day a week so the other officer could get a day off. Well today she quit so now they have me working 7 days a week until they can find somebody to help relieve me. Problem is that you have to have a TWIC card (higher security clearance) to work this site which nobody that works in this area has yet. Waiting list for a TWIC card is 4-6 weeks. And that's only if somebody applies tomorrow. So I'm stuck working 60 hours a week for well over a month. Only plus side is that during the week some of my shifts don't start until 0200. So I may have some extra time to play with you guys. It all depends on my sleep schedule. I'll see everyone as soon as I can.

SPARRING TEAM EVENT- By Raci

Submission Type:

((Everything in parenthesis is ooc ))
Hello this is an invite from your neighbor in Invicta to all the troublemakers of the casino! Yes Troublemakers. I am known as Doctor Raci and I have come up with an awesome way to let off some steam with all the fighting and death we do behind the scenes.

What must you do to be apart of the event? That's simple... look around your area (Your guild) for a special someone to be your partner as each team must have two members to compete. That's what we will focus on in week one. Establishing teams and setting up the first match. Then the following match it is up to each of the four people ((on both teams of the match.)) to fight and establish the winner within the ONE WEEK. Members of Invicta will be doing the same thing as this is opened to both under Darth Belatrix and Xilyia the magnificent.
