Just to let you all know, I haven't been abducted or something. Just got my new computer so I have been downloading games and setting it up for the last few days. STO is next on my list! Seeya ingame again soon.
You've taken the right first step! Our forums play a large part in what we do-- for passing information, for event planning, and sharing our abundant creativity.
What makes Argo unique as a role-playing guild?
It's hard to find 'good people' to hang out with on the internet; we've cultivated a wholesome environment that treats others with maturity and respect.
For me personally, the OOC 'culture' is fantastic. I don't really feel uncomfortable with my fleetmates or what they're saying/joking about, and wonton profanity is null-- as a woman on the internet, that goes a long way.
We all have other obligations and we all realize that STO isn't at the top of the list. You put in as much as you want to; if you need to take a break, that's fine. If you can only log in once a week, that's fine. Our 'boot' policy is 'three months with no explanation' (one month for new initiates), and even then, if you come back and want in, it's an instant re-invite.
We encourage member contributions-- we're here because we all love stories, and we want to hear yours. Plots and events are not restricted to staff only-- we just ask that you check in with a staff member first for timing and quality assurance.
More fond of forum RP, story writing, or world-building? That's what our forums are for, with our UFP databanks and Captain's Logs.
Your next step is to fill out an application. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact someone on the admin team:
Admin Staff Shan@ompgaming1 (enjin)
Or you can join the in-game public channel called '38th Argo'. This is Argo's dedicated channel for applicants and allows both the admins to find you easily, as well as giving you an opportunity to talk to some of Argo's senior members if you have questions.
