As the Omicron Update is still MIA, in the next patch Omicron Zeta will receive a set of changes in order to improve server gameplay as this system has been a severe pain for a large amount of Omicron players. Nobody really wants to fly 200/300k to encounter a player.
The general layout has been severely shrinked, halving travel times in general. Mu JH<>Delta JH and Rho JH<>Delta JH have been reduced to ~30k. Nomads have been brought closer as well as the average distance from Iota's JH to any other in Zeta is between 30k to 40k.
Rho/Delta/Mu/Iota JHs have been placed relatively close to field edges to avoid problems with capital ships stuck in rocks.
Do not build a POB in Zeta until the update, otherwise your base will end up most likely anywhere but where you'd like it to be.
It is near time that we descend from our divine office desks bearing a singular problem. One in which we can solve ourselves, however the sheer re-occurrence brings the need of a lowly human. It is to be understood that the art of being a 'Janitor' is a skill for many. A very noble mastery. A mastery in which we have smited an endangered species in honor of hearing the news.
We require people of this profession with residence in the Temple of the Damned.
There is very many tractor fuel stains, ghost residue, and 'cat droppings' which must be picked up after. Apparently despite the never-ending knowledge of the universe, printer paper only does a temporary job.
If thou are interested in the slavery job to the ancients, you shall receive an attachment to fill out.
You will be rewarded with coffee once a week. That you must make yourself.
You will find that this is not a task in which a mere mortal like you can handle. You must go to the shady shop, named "The Shady Shop" and learn of rituals in order to speak to YOUR PERSONAL ALMIGHTY OVERLORD - As he is the one who shall take the position.
You will learn that the Janitor job once you have finished cleaning up, comes with a few other slave responsibilities. You will be given a seat at the "Windows DOS Computer of Amazing (Some sort of totally real thing inc.)" and be forced to clean up after other peoples mistakes over the Neural Net. Regretfully, I can inform you that you will only be given enough ordinance to destroy any information in a Computer System connected to the Neural Net. Universe destruction you will not achieve as easily.
You will also be allowed to silently judge people from afar. Everyone loves to silently judge others.
We have high expectations. Bring your mop.
//The Moderator Application is to be filled out inRP as one of your characters. Be creative! There's no real wrong way to do it.
Divine Postcard Paper Wrote:Q1 - What brings you to request being in a potential Janitor position of our almighty temple. We will work you hard. What have you done to deserve sitting at the janitors console, and hold the almighty mop of cleaning?
Q2 - What makes you a superior janitor to everyone else?
Q3 - Do you expect to gain anything besides being being able to wield "THE HOLY WINDEX"?
Q4 - What responsibilities do you believe you'll have in the position. (Hint: Scaring away geese is 'not' one of these responsibilities)
Q5 - Out of the pool of Mortals - Is there anyone else you think would be a more experienced janitor than you?
If you make an impression of being someone worthy of the position, we shall contact you after the deadline.
As of today, the Registration Agreement has been updated to what should be its (not even?) final form.

By continuing to use the forums, it is assumed you agree to the new terms. If you do not, you have 7 days as of this post to reply to this thread and request either:

The previous agreement update had a flaw due to the Wiki's licensing scheme being fairly outdated. As of now, the Wiki has been updated to operate under the CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 License. You can find a really simple version explaining it here: https://tldrlegal.com/license/creative-c...nc-sa-4.0)
The forum Terms & Conditions have received several updates. The T&C had nothing related to posting copyrighted materials, which threatened the safety of the server as it could have been shut down with something like a DMCA. It isn't possible anymore. We have modified the terms related to third-party information sharing as it still was possible to share personal information. This as well is now impossible.
We have added the terms protecting you in the event Disco is ever tied to a legal investigation, as unless we state it in the T&C we have no legal obligation to inform you of said investigation.
Content that falls under the new CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0 license has been clarified. "content of your own intended for use by groups... of which you are a member at the time of posting" means informations that will be used by the faction as a whole, such as Lore or Faction Information. Individual diaries or such things are not part of this agreement unless you specifically state it belongs to the faction.
We strongly suggest you read the new terms with the utmost attention.
Quote:Pilot carrying this quasi-lawful ID is a Zoner, who:
- Can attack any ship in self-defense, to protect another Zoner ship, or in defense of Zoner bases.
- Cannot dock Cruisers and Battleships on any base within House Sovereign Space.
- Cannot dock transports with more than 3,600 cargo on any base within House Sovereign Space.
- Cannot participate in unlawful actions except as described above.
The update was introduced to fix bugged restrictions, nerf restrictions exclusions deemed overpowered and avoid confusion among players. The Admin Team believes this wording will be clear and obvious enough for all flying with the Zoner ID.
And last but not least, a new plugin has been coded in order to save everyone some trouble with this.
Ships flying with the Zoner ID or the TAZ ID will now live with the following:
- You are unable to dock in House Sovereign Space (See the rules for the entire list of systems affected) if your ship has a total cargo space equal or greater than 3600 units.
- You are unable to dock in House Sovereign Space if you are flying any Capital Ship ranging from Destroyer to Carrier.
The Zoner/Order rephacks have been set to Neutral, as justified in this CNS Broadcast: http://discoverygc.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=131516.
The TAZ has also been split from the rest of the Zoners in order to solve the situation using the new player IFF system. The Order is now hostile to the TAZ only and TAZ to Order.
