More grudges this time around but keep them coming! I'll try to keep this somewhat updated...

It's that time of year again it would seem. The first year of temporary ASIM terms has gone by with decent success and the baton is being passed once more.
Here are the rules:
Remember that current asims are allowed to re-apply and may be re-selected.
Applications should be submitted via Darkness Message to Selatos, Arjuna, and Erek. Please answer the following questions in your application.
Newly hired asims are not required to irrevocably drop their character. Instead, their characters are suspended for the duration of being an asim.
Asims have no IC activity related to their character while working for the administration.
Asims will have a defined period of service of six months after which a new group of asims will be hired. There is no limit on the number of terms if reselected.
Applications will be in January and July, with asims working from February through the end of July and then August through January of next year.
Compensation in the form of Combine Points will be provided for asims who remain active and effective throughout their service period.
Asims are required to use IRC and must be active in staff channels as that is how the majority of decisions are made.
Asims duties center around helping players affected by bugs, handling support tickets, and dealing with rules violations. There will be opportunities for asims to assist in designing RP opportunities for SWC at large, along with participating in discussion on game features before they are announced or implemented.
What is your Combine handle?
How long have you played SWC?
What have you done IC so far (including previous characters)? What are you working on currently, and what is your position with your faction?
Why do you want to become an asim?
Are you involved in any other online games or RPGs of a similar nature? If so please describe your position and responsibilities
Please provide three references of SWC members who are not on the administration team that have been in the game for at least two years.
Applications will be open until January 24th with new asims starting their term on February 1st.
Edit: Applications are closed and the Asims are being selected by the mighty Selatos. Stay tuned.
Final Edit: Thank you to everyone that applied. At this time we decided not to add any new asims, but will revisist this in the future as workload and situations change. Also a big thanks to Klinger and Sid who will return to their mortal bodies soon.
Where do you live?
How old are you?
What is your occupation?
How much time would you like to volunteer per week on improving SWC?
Have you performed administrative duties in the past or organized groups/events?
Is a hot dog a sandwich? Explain why or why not.

All submissions are being reviewed and voted on currently by a panel of judges. There will be multiple rounds, and winners will be announced at the end of all judging rounds.
We may look at upvotes and downvotes for some decision making, but they are not being used in any official capacity at this time. Showing your support for designs you like though and letting us know what you all want to see in game cannot hurt.
The Combine Art team is officially hosting the first ever design your own CP ship competition in the art forum! Please head over here to read up on the rules and submission requirements:
Submissions are open until January 15, 2018. Any and all questions can be DMed to me, or head over to the #swc-art IRC channel. |
Edit: Last day to get these in. You have 24 hours!
|(Edited by Jevon Lambright on Year 19 Day 51)|
The Deathmatch has moved ahead again. I feel like I did not post last time so we had few votes.... oops?
Grudges are updated but please submit more.
|(Edited by Baugrems on Year 19 Day 50)|
Some of you may have noticed but most probably have not so here is the official word.
Focusing Crystals that some players have been collecting have been RENAMED to Kyber Shard. A new item named Kyber Crystal has been added to the rules page.
All temples, Jedi Praxeums, and the Sith Temple have been equipped with a Furnace item. This item does nothing for you yet but just in case you see it and wonder why it exists... Some Darkness planets have had new cities/temples added to them (or will soon).
The wait for Lightsabers gets smaller. I'm not announcing a release date right now besides soon, without a TM.

If you are wondering where your facility income is, the job did not run correctly this month and will need to be run manually by Selatos. Now would be a good time to ensure that your operator is active!
It's that time again, folks! The SWC Administration will be conducting faction checks, scheduled to start next week. Please be sure that your factions meet the requirements, as detailed in the rules.
If anyone has any questions or concerns, feel free to contact myself or another Asim - we are here to help.
Sid-It 18.351: We will also be checking for Generic Datacard violations and any violators will have the "extra" datacards removed from them.
Sid-It 18.359: For those who forgot, we started faction checks on Day 357. A number of factions have datacards in excess of their slot count, so the administration will be removing them and fines will be assessed to those found abusing the generic datacard system.
Sid-It 19.014: No, we didn't forget. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions:
- Factions will be fined 10,000,000cr for each violation (except datacard violations).|
- Datacard violators will be fined 10,000,000cr per excess slot (0.5s rounded up); the fines for repeat offenders will be doubled.
- The owners of factions in violation will receive a bill with the amount of fines due to Darkness, payable by the faction fined.
We are only releasing statistics of the violations at this time. Here's the damage, folks:
- 48 banner/logo violations
- 6 description violations
- 11 datacard violations (2 repeat offenders)
2017 Christmas Fund: 1,209,000,000cr
Last of the Sid-Its: Faction fines have been paid. For those of you that see those mysterious credit events, it was me who stole your precious credits. All hail Selatos!
(Also, if you are going to see Star Wars tonight, please wait until January to ruin it for everyone else....)
