Ship Olympics 2011: Manifesto  
Go for the gold, stay for the orgies...

Here there is fun aplenty and the points don’t matter. In other words, the points are like condoms at a tribble party (you can thank boosette for that one). We here at Ship Olympics are united in our love for Trek and our need to express that love through...OLYMPIC GAMES!


* The mission of Ship Olympics is to promote Trek ideals throughout Livejournal to the best of our abilities. This includes upholding ethics in challenges, encouraging participation by everyone on our teams, ensuring the Games take place on a regular schedule, protecting the Olympic manifesto, and encouraging and supporting the development of inter-ship cooperation.

* The Ship Olympics are friendly challenges between creators in individual or team events and not meant to provoke anything involving war between ships or countries, if you will. We’re here to have fun (and participate in possible orgies full of love for all manners of TOS and AOS characters).

* Just as the Olympics are both a competition and a way for countries to come together, so too will Ship Olympics create a sense of unity and a sense of pride in all that we love about Star Trek.

Disclaimer: The practice of shipping (AND multi-shipping) is a Ship Olympics right and responsibility. Every individual must have the possibility of having fun in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity, and fair play. This will happen through the use of friendly and effective communication with your admiral mods, your captains, and each other.

In other words, refrain from instigating or propagating wank, defined by cards_slash as “anything that is intentionally inflammatory/insulting/worthy of the grade-school playground.”

Now we all know that despite all the best intentions and warnings, etc., stuff does happen and so does wank. Ergo this is our 3 strike system, we will usually try to talk to the people beforehand but if a person is not listening/back-sassing/refusing to take it to a more private place to be dealt with by the mods, then this is what happens.

Strike 1: Warning. One warning will be given, the thread/comment will be frozen/screened and the reason for it will be given by the Mod freezing the thread. We will not delete the wank comments unless they are deliberately racist/sexist/homophobic/incredibly inflammatory/nobody needs to see that crap/etc otherwise it will be left as a warning to people i.e. don't let this happen to you. All mods will be informed of the warning and the wanker's name will be put on a list along with the nature of the wank.

Strike 2: One Week Ban. If the wanker persists past the warning, they are banned for one week. They are not allowed to be involved in anything within the main comm or their ship's comm, the ship's Captain will be informed of the wanker's ban and will be expected to coordinate with the mods thusly. After the week's challenge is up they will be allowed back into the game on the proviso that Admiral Mods will be watching them closely. Use of macros may be applied at this stage.

Strike 3: Full Out Ban. If the wanker keeps persisting after the one week ban they are full out banned. No more warnings, chances or anything of the sort. The wanker has shown that they are persistently choosing to ignore the rules and the spirit of this comm and clearly does not belong in it. We don't like wank and frankly nobody wants this place to end up as another Fandom_Wank tale of woe. At this stage use of macros may be judiciously applied.

All strikes will be applied after full agreement on the mods part.

Hey there!

Thanks for signing the manifesto and pledging to be wank-free, but we also need you to make sure you sign up on the sign-ups list with your preferred pairings.

You'll also need to join the comm in order to participate (all future posts for challenges and such will be "Members Only").

Thanks! :)
