The following is a re-post of the guidelines for publishing news items:

The Station News (SN) is a news outlet that gathers serious news items from the far reaches of the VO universe and publishes them electronically for retrieval using the PDA.

If you have items that are newsworthy, please post them here. They will be checked for content and, if approved, they will be posted in the Station News. .

A few examples of news worthy items:
-Announcement of live RP events.
-Results of live RP events.
-Major guild transactions.
-Recruitment drives.
-Player guild announcements.
***This is an incomplete list. The guide is the final arbiter of what is appropriate

A few examples of items that won't be posted:
-Personal ads.
-Overly personal attacks (mild faction/guild bias is permitted in RP posts).
-Satire / humor.
-Items which clearly conflict with the back-story.
-Items which may result in confusion (i.e. stories of ships or add-ons that do not exist).
-Overly inflammatory items.
***This is an incomplete list. The guide is the final arbiter of what is inappropriate.

Submission guidelines:
-Maximum 30 lines (excludes publishing instructions).
-Images cannot be displayed.
-The starting times for events should use Greenwich Mean Time to avoid time zone confusion. Use /time in game to see the current GMT.
-Please make an attempt to be immersive. Rather than "player", say "pilot". Rather than "game" try "universe" and so on.

Please include the following information:
-Subject.
-Organization responsible for the post:
-Which Factions should see the post: we can set it so you have to be liked by a faction to see the post (Serco, Itani, UIT)
-Relevant dates/times.
-Text.

The guides reserve the right to edit the posts before adding them to the station news.

The guides reserve the right to request that, in the case of semi-editorial content, the actual individual being "quoted" or described post their appoval within this thread.

Posts that are submitted without the proper information will experience processing delays.

Please use vendetta_news (at) yahoo (dot) com for sending newsposts if you want them to be a surprise.
If you have sent a post to the e-mail address please either post here or let a guide know in game to go and check the account. We generally don't check there otherwise.

Housekeeping: We'll be locking and unpinning the old thread periodically and starting a fresh, shiny new thread. This way these guidelines won't be buried so deeply, and we'll have a searchable record of items submitted for publishing.

Tired of Flying Solo?
Phoenix Alliance Guild [PA]
All Factions/Levels

Well look no further because The Phoenix Alliance Guild [PA] is currently looking for recruits. [PA] is a gray space based multinational guild known as the universe's premier jack of all trades guild. We fight pirates, hunt the hive, mine, trade, and assist in protecting allied controlled stations throughout the reaches of gray space. [PA] strives to assist new players throughout the game regardless of guild or national affiliation. We also allow our members to participate in nationalist activities as long as you refrain from continuing hostilities outside those specific missions and locations.

Potential recruits who are interested in working hard and participating positively within the guild can expect to move up in the ranks over time.

What do we require?
- Don't be a d*ck
- Promise to refrain from piracy and to help out against pirate insurgents (when able to).
- Assist other members when able to whether its with information, protection, escorting, and etc.
- Promise to abide by all current and future agreements with our allies and friends.
- Agree to not spread guild sensitive information around and to play "nice" on channel 1 and 100

Don't stay out in the cold 'verse alone! Join [PA] and have the ability to grow as a pilot and work your way up in one of the oldest guilds on this side of gray space. Contact Greenwall, MiexonBionic, and Cpt. Jacob K. McGrath in game for more information on joining or ask for us on channel 100.
