Greetings, Members of the Rebel Squadrons. ":)

The past few weeks have been packed full of noteworthy events. I apologize
for the length of this State of the RS Address in advance, but I'll try to
be succint.
>From the Internet Office, several announcements. BGN Shikkie Kaaran
announces most of his information in separate posts, so you should read the
BBS to stay up-to-date. The Roster Database has a new look since the time
of the last SotRS. All members who have not visited need to go there ASAP,
as this is a major nexus of communications for the club: Further, the Internet Officer released an
official statement on Signatures. He suggests using a form of idline to
save space. Note that this is not a requirement, and is not endorsed by the
High Command, it is simply the suggestion of the IO. You can read the
suggestion at
id=1 Lastly, the Rebel Squadrons News Center (replacement for the holonet)
is nearing completion. You can view this project at
In Medal Office news, a new system of medals has been devised, with many
additional medals being added to those currently available. These new
medals will be unveiled on friday, on a new webpage being created by Major
Ares Braynock. The new medal graphics are being created by Commander Ben
In the Office of External Affairs, a new Minister has been appointed. Major
Ater will now be heading up the office and handling alliances. The Rebel
Squadrons has a new ally, the Imperial Dragoon Strike Fleet ). Finally, the External Affairs page
has been overhauled. You can view it at
In the Outer Rim War, the competition continues on. The RS won this last
week, with 34 victories to the 11 of the SV, 4 of the LSF, and 2 of the VE.

Please pass down the CoC


I made some changes to the news center, the list can be found here:

Also as it's pretty much 95% done functionality-wise i'd like to get some hardcore testing of it to being. Therefore the I requests that postings of newsletters, announcements and the like be added to the RS News Center. Any errors should be reported to At this time you may still use the BBS to post copies of NLs and such in case the News Center develops errors, but in the future I'd like to see each used for its distict purpose. The bbs for posting discussion topics, and assorted other two-way communication. (NLs are one-way comm from CO to those under his/her command) and the News Center for announcements and newsletters. (Again, one-way Comm)
