For everyone's convenience, I am making a list of links here to important sections of the game, including a newly updated "how to apply" guide. It can be found here. http://www.seibertron.com/energonpub/viewtopic.php?f=180&t=45567&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a

JaAm brought up Skywarp's rank being 9. I believe that was an error on his original tech specs. He was erroneously given Starscream's stats I seem to recall. His actual rank, I think, is the same as Thundercracker's. Does any one know for sure?

The Tech Specs on the Database for Screamer, Warp and Cracker are all screwy. Starscream, for the sake of the game, has a rank of 8. As far as Cracker and Warp are concerned, they are both rank 5.

Weapon: Energo-Sword
Final ranks are determined by mods, although we typically follow tech specs with some exceptions. Also, I would say the difference between rank 5 and 6 is close to negligible. Rank 7 and higher are typically recognized as officers with everything below being various levels of regular soldiers.

This is also a good time to bring up some of the profiles that we are still missing from the crash. Even if you were already approved you still need a profile posted. If you didn't back up your profiles then you will have to rewrite them.

That brings up a question for me. I am playing both Wheeljack and Bumblebee. Now when my profile for Bumblebee was accepted I was told he was the Autobot Executive Officer (second in command I assume) but Bumblebee's rank when I posted up the application was listed as 7. However Wheeljack has a rank of 8. Would it be better if they had their ranks switched?

You're very welcome to apply for Skids if you'd like.

*wonders about the status of her application* I hope I didn't mess it up *that* badly... :>

Don't worry, sometimes it tales the mods a while to get around to reading through and judging all of the applications. Not much is happening for the Autobot side of the RPG right now so you are not missing a lot.

Aah. I had thought that might be the case, but figured it couldn't hurt to check.

Several people have recently posted applications that are cut and paste copies of the approved profiles. While it is acceptable to use the archived profile for a character as a starting point for an application, we prefer that you make it your own in some way. At the very least, you must provide a sample post, as the rules clearly state.

Just remember that for every profile in our archives, someone worked hard to write it up. It's okay to benefit from that hard work. That's why the archives are there. What's not cool is using it as an excuse to not do the work yourself. If you apply for Mirage, We don't want to see what the previous Mirage player could do. We want to see what YOU can do. This latest group of applicants has added a great deal to an ensemble cast that has a long tradition of excellence. The staff are confident that even the most inexperienced among you have the talent to add something great to this game.

So show us your best. We look forward to seeing it.

I noticed that my profile for Bumblebee lacked a description of what he looked like. Although I am sure we all know what G1 Bumblebee looks like I thought I would add a description of his appearance in both vehicle and robot modes. Hope that is ok for the mods here and thought I would just point it out.

So should the patrol group (blitzwing, ramjet, skywarp and dirge) move to the main story thread for their mission?

No, they can continue in the base thread.

As of this time, I am reducing Ratchet to NPC status. He is now available for player applications. I will continue to post him as the story requires, until such time as someone successfully applies for him.

Do you want me to wait to post again for Trailbreaker since he was talking with Ratchet last about the fake humans or can I just have him leave the repair bay and do something else? Just checking. Thanks!

I thought Breaker was on his way out the repair bay door, but if you want to keep going, feel free.

Are things generally moving slowly right now because the game is just getting started?

Please excuse my eagerness. I get bored around my house frequently. the old boards moved quick as lightning, I'm just a little used to that I suppose.

Yeah. Unfortunately we just got started due to the board-wide crash, so it'll be slow going for a bit.

I understand things ain't exactly moving at lightning speed but...I'll be away most of the weekend. Halloween parties, weddings, my skirt cooking dinner, etc. I'll post a pic of me as the Joker if I figure out how!

OK it's been over a week since anyone posted to the Decepticon HQ thread. Pretty soon I'm going to put that fire out myself and leave everyone behind. Ramjet can only be so patient.

Yeah, things have really slowed down around here lately. With the exception of Smokey and Bumblebee doing their thing and the small skirmish at Decepticon HQ, not much else is happening. I understand that we've just gotten things going again and people have lives off the boards, but I think we have enough players now for the game to get going at a steadier pace. I don't mean to be a pest, and I appreciate all the hard work everyone has done. It's just that I love the game, and I'd hate to see people lose interest because not much is happening. Anyway, just my two cents.

I agree with Smokescreen there. I think the way things are going is pretty good, everyone seems to have a good handle on what they are doing, it just seems that no one really posts a lot. A week or more can go by and nothing, or very little happens. Again I understand not everyone has the same amount of time on their hands at work and home as I do, but it seems like to me that this RPG is at risk of just dying out due to lack of interest from people posting. Which is the case would be a real shame since I am having a lot of fun with this RPG and interacting with some great roleplayers.

Agreed heavilly! If people could take five minutes to check once a day, things would get off the ground very quickly! I've had way to much fun here over the past years to see this thing sink into obscurity. Just once a day check...not to much to ask right?
