FYI, I've done a little work on the wiki page for Character Creation Guidelines.  More to do, but it's coming along.

Also, I've talked to Mikey Turvey, an artist who has drawn little cartoon versions of pretty much every Star Wars character ever, and he's given his permission for the VE to use his work (as long as we credit him)!  You can see his awesome 'Lil Star Wars series here: http://mikeyturvey.tumblr.com/#33306849631

I'm already playing around with video software to mock up a cute recruitment video that uses some of his Imperial toons.  I'd love to direct people in the videos to www.VastEmpire.com directly, instead of www.VastEmpire.com/main, so let's get the new website up and running!

Welcome to the VE, Vaehycules.  You've joined the Navy, it looks like, so you should head over to the Naval Academy ComNet, and post an introduction there.  An Academy Training Officer will be along shortly after you post, to guide you through the short orientation process.  Good luck with training, and we'll see you in the other areas of the ComNet after you finish up!

Just spent some time clicking through tvtropes.org.  There are some pretty good pages on there relevant to the VE.
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PlayByPostGames
and
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/JournalRoleplay
for example...

We could incorporate some of these insights into the introduction materials for new members that we've been talking about.

Also, on that first link as well as this one, the Vast Empire is listed, which is good.  But we may want to update the descriptions, and link back to the ComNet rather than vastempire.com.  And the "long runners" section at the top of that first link should really include the VE... we've been around since 1999!

I went ahead and edited the TVTropes page and Wookieepedia page with a better description and link to the Comnet, as well as added us to the Long-Running section on the TVT page Which reminds me,  Main/VastEmpire could use some updates. I'll mess with it when I get some time.

Thanks Maroy!  One thing, though: although the "mostly-defunct" thing may be true for other parts of the Imperial Network, it's probably worth stressing that the VE is still very much active.

Thanks for catching that, it was a bit unnecessary in hindsight. Also, I went ahead and tidied up our TVTropes page, since the Play-By-Post page links to it. People are free to mess with it if they want, that's why it's a wiki

I know.  I'm always hesitant to barge into an unfamiliar online environment and started editing immediately, even with wikis.  Neurosis, thy name is Trykon.

Anyway, thanks for acting as my proxy.
