Merry Christmas and a Happy 2019

Posted on Mon Dec 24, 2018 @ 4:29pm by Captain Kate Banninga

Good afternoon everyone,

With the end of 2018 approaching, I would like to thank you all for this amazing year. It was Langley’s first full year and it was amazing. We gained new crew and lost some. We went through hell and got back up again. We learned who we are and what we want. And if you ask me, we created a great foundation for the years to come.

The second part of the year might have shown a decrease in posting numbers, mostly due to the activity of the Command team. But the activity in our community is very strong. Which to me is way more valuable. I’m sure we can get the posting number up from where it is now.

I’m confident 2019 will give us many great opportunities to write the stories we desire. To continue the journey we started with our characters in the last year. To create more characters and more stories. And to create an environment where everyone can write the stories they want within our universe.
But, 2019 will also bring changes. And a big one will be a change in the Command team. After discussing this a few times between us we decided that it would be best if Caoimhe stepped back from her position as XO. She won’t leave the sim and she will still hold the IC position of Director of Research. Over the last months Caoimhe’s time to write has come down so much that she doesn’t have the time to assist me in running the station.

Caoimhe’s writer is one of my dearest friends and I couldn’t have started and run Langley without her. She came up with a number of amazing ideas, gave me honest and much needed feedback and often kicked my butt when I forgot to do stuff that needed to be done. She has been and will continue to be a very valuable addition to Langley Station and I want to thank her very much for everything she has done for us.

With Caoimhe leaving the command team that means that the positions of XO and 2XO are now both vacant. And because I really can’t run the simulation by myself I’m going to start recruiting for both position, in combination with the open IC positions.

My other plans for 2019 are finishing our current mission and starting a new one (Ideas are welcome), find writers for all the senior staff positions, work more with the civilian department and colony, increase our monthly posting number and run a new round of awards. And, of course, improve the website even more.

I want to close this with (again) thanking you all for you contribution to Langley station. The station wouldn’t be what it is without you all. Neither would be our community. We really are friends and I’m honored to lead you all.

So, here is wishing everyone a great holiday season and a happy new year in 2019.

With regards,
Kate
CO Langley Station
