I really wish I could make it to that halloween social, but it is a week or two before I'll be back. Alina would probably enjoy costuming (well.. she'd prefer to still have a potential costume partner still too *awkward looks*) lol. Have fun with it!
Although now it's been suggested to me that 'skant' as a term was, in fact, coined by the Star Trek usage of it. Which could very well be true, but if it is... the person who named it just trampled on their own gender equality message.
I think the 'skant' designation as used in Star Trek is, in a nutshell, completely inaccurate. A skant is a pair of pants, or shorts, that have been designed to look like they're a freeflowing dress or skirt.
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.
