Mod Announcements

A few important things in this so make sure to read it all!

1. Animus will be switching to monthly application cycles. Do to our changing schedules and the increasing number of applications we receive weekly (usually 15-20 or more every week), the best way for us to structure plots and get applications processed at a good speed is with this method.

The cycle will be as follows:
-The last seven days of the month, the activity check will happen and reservations will open. These reservations will be good for two days into the period of time applications are open.
-The first seven days of the month, applications will be open. Reservations will expire on the second, to give people time to submit applications for reserved characters if the person who has them on reserve doesn't go through with it.

This change will take place next week: we will process apps as normal this Sunday and next Sunday, and from then on the application cycle will take place. Reservations will close tomorrow, but any made until then will be valid until Sunday.

2. The activity check level is increasing in September. Not a big change: in September you will be expected to provide ten comments instead of five; if you take a strike, you will have to provide twenty comments the following month instead of ten. Again, this does not change the August activity check at all.

3. The way trunks work will be changed. Instead of being able to fill an entire trunk with as many items as you wish everyone will be limited to six items; this is the reason trunks were temporarily removed in the Breach event. We will also be eliminating the trunk page and instead asking that you all list trunk contents in your journal and provide a link. This will be part of August's activity check, so you have some time to consider which six items you want your character to have. Anything needed to make the character playable does not count toward this count (a wheelchair, for example).

4. We will be adding a new information page about the network. Therefore, we are asking you all for your input: what would you like to know about the network? There will be a thread for this in this post; please post your questions there. We will answer them and this information will also be added to the network information page.

Is there a guide on how to use the network anywhere in game? Or do characters have to figure out how to use it for themselves?

You previously mentioned that there was a function to vocalize text posts, do they also have a vocal recognition system?

Will a character's display name if not anon always be their true name/the name on their name plate? Or can they set display names?

That reply says the ID is posted "by their name", though. Did you mean "as their name"?

Oh, okay. Got it, thanks!
