Ep 9 – Posting and Post Creation (1hr 13m)

Today my usual simming partner in crime (not Kai) joined me (Sarah) in a discussion on posting and post creation.  Unfortunately Doofus McDooferson had only an internal mic and the sound quality* for his audio is quite shite.  My voice is its usual perfectness 😛

Topics discussed include:

  • Shawn’s illustrious simming career (only the best sims for Shawn)
  • What a post should contain, or what makes a post good
  • Golden rules of posting
  • How to encourage people to write more in a joint post
  • Pet peeves when joint posting
  • Proofread!!!!?!!!!111

Site’s mentioned: The Oatmeal’s Guide to Apostrophe’s and Misspelling; TF47’s Player Guide (includes golden rules of posting, post creation, etc)

Want to provide feedback, ask questions or demand Shawn buy an external mic?  Then please leave us a comment 🙂

TSP – Episode 2 (1hr 11min)

Warning: contains no intro or outro music.

Why?  My mac died this week *cries*, but thankfully it was after the podcast had been recorded.  Unfortunately it still needed editing.  There were too many umms and mhmms, so I edited out a lot.  Not all of them though, so play along at home and take a sip whenever you hear one 😛

Topics discussed include:

  • Feedback from others on what attracts them to a sim
  • Out of Character community (including IMs and IRC)
  • Being in different time zones *
  • The curse of the Executive Officer
  • Update on Sarah’s nova sim **
  • The joy of Lemon, Lime and Bitters (drink)


This week’s question:  How do you prefer to get to know your fellow players (IM, IRC, Forum, Email, etc)?

Sites mentioned: Federation Sim Fleet, Bravo Fleet

** Sarah’s nova sim site http://sentinel47.com
