Lookin' good, Ech; love the personal touches.  A couple things: sign  your Academy notes as "Training Officer" rather than your Fleet duty position, and also, try to maintain a distinction between Basic Training and Flight School.  How about, "Your Basic Training is nearly done, now.  Let's move on to Flight School."?  That seem okay?

Yep! Sounds great!

What's my next step to becoming a training officer?

Technically you are; I'm waiting on the Roster change to happen, too, but Command okayed the title change from consultant (which was under Slasher, for the Bridge Guide you were working on) to TO (which is where I want ya), so it's in effect now.  Now stop clogging up this thread, TO, and get back to the wiki mines!

First you should get your training post all ready to go and be sure to post it here so we can give you suggestions and what have you....It's good to see some optimism but recruits must be deal with as quickly as possible initially7 so dibs on people doesn't really work...

Welcome, new recruit, to the Vast Empire Naval Academy! By posting here, you're one step closer to joining us in our ranks.

If you'll allow me to introduce myself, I am Petty Officer 2nd Class Echelon. As your training officer, I'll lead you through the courses here at VENA.

You'll begin by completing the Basic Training course. Please proceed to Chapter 1, here, read the section, and create a bio for your Vast Empire character. Remember, you should have it in 3rd person (he, she, it) and in past tense (ran, shot, exploded).

Once your bio is complete, post it here for reviewing, and then we can move on to the next step, Flight School!

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or rants, feel free to contact any of us here at VENA. The fastest way to get help would to get on the #VENA IRC channel and ask there (I'm usually on). Otherwise, you can Private Message us, or just simply post here. Remember, the wiki has all sorts of information, and you're welcome to look at other people's works (just don't plagerize or copy).

Utterly,

Training Officer Echelon

Ok, Echelon, I know you're eager, and your enthusiasm is great; it's part of the reason I hired you.    But to be a TO, I'm gonna need you to temper that excitement with careful attention to detail.  This new version of your welcome post is inaccurate: Chapter 1 is the first step of Flight School, and comes after the completion of Basic Training.  The only thing a recruit really needs to do to "complete" Basic Training, though, is read the single wiki page with that title, and post a "reporting for training" thread.  Really look at the VENA pages, and make sure you give new people the right information.

The thing is, when I was a recruit, I don't remember there being a Basic Training. That's why I though Chapter 1 was Basic Training.

Yeah, see, it's holes like that I'm trying to plug, in the VENA pages, and that's why I wanted you to look over the rewritten stuff to make sure you were up to speed.    Trying to have all the info in the wiki, so if any recruit doesn't know something, it's ultimately a reflection on how closely they've read the training materials.

This welcome message looks good, Ech.  Last thing: "Plagerize" isn't a word; you want "Plagiarize."

Just a heads-up, folks: we've made the transition to a new story prompt for recruits going through Flight School.  The new thread is called Raptor: Disaster!, and can be found here.  This one was a true collaboration, between Hunter-Morell, Ellesmere, myself, and Echelon.  Good work team! 

I've changed the references to Overwhelming Odds in the VENA wiki pages to reflect the new story title, but please, if you see any lingering old links or references, update them.

Not my place, I know (feel free to kick my sorry, SC pilot rear and tell me to get lost at any time) but I've looked at the training topic - a good scenario, from my view, but I think there should at least be an out of context/character description of what is required from the trainee that is posting - if you've already thought of this and have it in the works...

...pretend I was never here <_<

Who left the door unlocked?

In seriousness, Hades, we had thought of that, but Hunter's technically on leave.  He did me a favor just getting the prompt up at all before this week's meeting.  We'll add the OOC note when he gets back Sunday.

So, the roster says I'm the command school trainer, and since we're reopening command school, I thought I would just go over all of the command school wiki material, and fix any mistakes, but I also might flesh out some of the material, or perhaps add some additional information. Sound good? Ellie could possibly do the same to the star fighter material, and you, omnipotent Trykon, could watch over us and direct us at your will!

I was just about to chime in, so thanks, Ech, for getting the ball rolling.

Assignments, people:

1.) Echelon, I want you to go through the Command School pages, as you volunteered.  But don't just look for typos... go ahead and add images from http://fractalsponge.net/ to the wiki pages, okay?  But make sure that anything you use properly credits the artist, Ansel Hsiao (a.k.a. fractalsponge)!  And Echelon, even more than the Command School pages, I'd really appreciate your insights for how to clean-up and flesh out the SCTP pages.

2.) Ellesmere, I need a status report.  You've been basically absentee for months, with the exception of reporting in and sometimes being on irc.  Can you do an update of the Flight School pages, incorporating new images?  Or maybe it's time to step down from a VENA position for a while?  Let me know what's up.

3.) Hunter-Morell, I know you're busy with other things, both VE and otherwise, but I need some activity from you as well.  I want that checklist for training officers, still, and the certifications and skills wiki pages could still use revision, images, etc.  Talk to me; I want to match you up with a VENA job, and there're plenty to choose from.

Welcome Hades!

Trykon, are we going to create a new command school story or use the one we have?

I've got a friend *cough* the magnificent Crest *cough* who wants to get into command school ASAP.

Hades wrote: Hello and welcome to the Vast Empire Naval Academy, Crewman.

I'm Chief Petty Officer Demetrius Aita, or Hades for short, and I'll be your Training Officer (TO) while you complete each of the stages of the Navy Academy's Orientation program. You'll see me around the Comnet, and I'll be here to guide you through the stages of what we refer to as 'Flight School', where you'll learn  to roleplay as the pilot of an Imperial Starfighter alongside numerous others of the Vast Empire!

By completing your post here, you have successfully passed Imperial Initiation - congratulations - and are now clear to begin Flight School, which will prepare you for day-to-day life in the Vast Empire (VE) and your duties as an Imperial Starfighter pilot. Please note: The wiki of the VE mentions something called 'command school', however that program is currently closed until further notice, so you will be working through flight school.

The next step in your training is to visit Flight school's wiki page, which can be found here, and start work on the first chapter, entitled 'Chapter 1: Character Development'. There, you'll write a bio of your character and figure out the ID line system. When you're completed, please post both your bio and ID line on this thread for me to review so we can move on to chapter 2. Here at the VE, we write stories in past tense and third person - you should also follow this tradition.

Again, I'll be here to assist you if you need help, so just send a Private Message to "Hades"  using the Comnet's very own private message system or go to the Naval Academy's channel on IRC (#VENA) and pose your question within! If you find yourself unable to do either of the above, contact any Naval personnel and they should be able to tell you what to do until your TO (me) can get back to you.

Again, welcome to the Vast Empire and the best of luck for flight school!

Regards,

Chief Petty Officer Demetrius Aita, your TO

Note; attached are some useful links-
  •  A look at what we do here in the VEN
  •  The Vast Empire Naval Academy wiki page
  •  The wiki page for Basic Training
  •  Flight School: Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3
  •  Command School (currently closed to new recruits, but available for your viewing): Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3
  •  How-to-create-a-wiki-page Tutorial
  •  Java-based IRC chat

EDIT: Sorry if it sounds too much like yours, Trick. I used your message as a sort of guideline/plan, but I can change it if it needs to be changed!

Here's mah status report! I finally have a computer which is behaving well enough for me to be active a whole lot more than my mediocre existence this past while and hopefully this will last until I can apply for the new grant in 2014 or win the lotto...Whichever happens first...

I'll look over the current materials not tonight but starting tomorrow and going into the weekend. I'll also get to work in putting up that stuff I told you all about

Is anybody halfway through assessing DeepSix's certs/skills? If not I can review both the topics. I already have read the shorter one (encompassing Piloting Shuttles, Environmental Survival and Starfighter Mechanic) and am ready to comment.

Looks fine, Hades.  No worries about the similarities to mine.  I chose the wording for mine, so clearly I like it.    As you grow into the position you may find yourself editing a bit, and that'll be fine, too.

The unofficial system we have going: whichever VENA staff member sees a new recruit's post first, becomes their TO.  Other TOs should generally leave the recruit alone, so every new person is dealing with only one "guide," unless the TO goes on Leave, in which case you should hand off your trainees to someone else.  Make sense?

Ellesmere, glad to hear the computer troubles are at least better.  I look forward to seeing you back in the saddle, so to speak.

Try not to edit VENA wiki pages for a bit!  I'm workin' on reopening Fleet School and changing acronyms!

EDIT: Okay, done with the initial sweep.  All instances of "Flight School (FS)" should now read "Starfighter School (SS)" and "Command School (CS)" is now "Fleet School (FS).  If you see one that I missed, please correct it.  I also updated some of the copy, and corrected a couple typos.

A few things that still need to be done:
1.)  This page is a mess, and yet both orientation pages, from both schools, link to it.  It needs to be cleaned up.
2.)  This page, for the current Fleet School mission, doesn't have any names filled in.  Can someone use a random name generator and just fill in some names?  Put the NPC's name, rank, and species, for all positions.

Any volunteers?

Alright,  I did the Command School Mission page with names I randomly generated... in my head. I didn't think of using a random name generator until after the fact. I made it so the Implacable has a predominantly human crew, with a few aliens interspersed. While the Vast Empire does have a very open policy toward aliens, I figured that the majority of the Empire was made up of humans regardless, seeing as it was formed from various parts of the old Empire.

Let me know what you all think!
