The roster is down six since last time and it's been a few reports since we last had a decrease. That puts us a little ways out from needing to open a squadron, condolences to the officer that I heard from about taking on a CMDR spot. I'm sure another opportunity will present itself sooner or later and we'll be keeping you in mind for that.
Squadron Executive Officer (SQXO) is now live as a secondary position. The new position is intended to designate a second-in-command for each squadron, though their specific duties will be decided by their CMDR. Our inaugural class of chosen SQXOs are CM Frenchie6 from Rho Squadron, MAJ Hermann from Sin Squadron, CM Victor O'Brien from Kappa Squadron, and CM TI-40026 from Firebird Squadron. Good luck on your new assignments!
The SOO and I are now sharing the promotion and medal queues in an effort to decrease delays, so you might see my name at the bottom of some of those emails. Medal emails will still come from the "Office of the TC-SOO" and have a [TC-SOO] tag in the subject, no change on that so there shouldn't need to be any email rule updates.
Imperial Storm has been delayed, so what I think we'll do is move up Squadron (Re)Mobilization. More news soon as preparations are worked out.
As a reminder that I'll probably keep in my report for a while, Discord isn't our primary communication platform because so much happens over email but anybody that's not regularly signing on to Discord is missing out on the biggest part of our community. A lot of the communication that used to take place on the mailing list now happens on Discord, for example.
