TCCOM REPORT #31

REPORTING OFFICER: High Admiral Plif, TIE Corps Commander
DATE SUBMITTED: 31 May 21
ACTIVE DUTY ROSTER COUNT: 154 (-2) Including 3 NPCs

NEWS

The roster is down two since last time, a small net loss from AWOLs and Reserves transfers almost balanced out by incoming recruits.

AD Clark has been away for part of the month so I've been tackling the medal and promotion queues solo for a bit, leading to some delays that got compounded when Squadron (Re)Mobilization ended and Commendations of Loyalty came in plus the usual traffic. Making sure competition results have been announced is very helpful to that process, since it's nice to have something to check the recommendations against.

A word about announcements: If one of us admirals announces a rules change or sends out a reminder, we're not doing that in order to call someone out and there aren't any names being put on blast. When we've stepped in and made a judgement call, it behooves us to make sure that everyone's on the same page by sending something out on a general channel. We're also looking for opportunities to add things to the Pilot Manual so that there's not just a temporary reaction that leads to things reverting to the way they were before.

As a reminder, Copper Iron Stars aren't awarded for just making a submission to a competition. There needs to be some kind non-placement achievement involved like flying some number of missions for an event or answering some number of trivia questions correctly over the course of a competition. One Copper Iron Star per pilot per competition per month to month-and-a-half is a good target for most competitions. While this should be reviewed when the competition is processed, this is also being reviewed when the medals are recommended.

Commendations of Loyalty from the last couple of rounds have been awarded, congratulations to all the recipients! The next CoL event is on August 21st for Grand Admiral Ronin's birthday.

An Imperial Storm is brewing. Rules for this round are being discussed and the SIMS, RA Phoenix Berkana, should have feedback to move forward with soon.

Episode 10 of the TIE Pilot's Podcast was released recently, you can check that out on https://youtu.be/iQW_agmXfr4 Many thanks to RA Zekk Terrik and GN Doyon for these!

TCCOM'S COMPETITIONS

MP Ace of the TIE Corps is now awarding the top three pilots on the Multiplayer Kill Board for all the games other than Star Wars Squadrons, which has its own similar competition.

COOP Ace of the TIE Corps is awarding the top three pilots on the Multiplayer Coop Kill Board each month.

The Trivia Grand Tour is in its sixth season. Updates are going out to the mailing list separately and also #competitions on Discord.

TCCOM'S AGENDA

DONE:

  • Pilot Manual update regarding file submissions (section VIII.i on page 35)
  • Restored medals and historic record for CM Bearstyle

ONGOING:

  • Performing onboarding tasks before assigning cadets to squadrons
  • Processing uniform updates
  • Processing medal and promotion recommendations
  • Processing transfers and other profile updates in the database
  • Adding items to the news feed in the database and the #polls-and-announcements channel in Discord
  • Updating the TIE Corps Pilot Manual
  • Chatting with the IO about stuff we need or would like to see in the new database
  • Learning to be a responsible database code collaborator from the IO, FA Turtle Jerrar (thanks!)
  • Holding CMDR+ meetings every two weeks
  • Moving pilots from the Reserves to AWOL status when messages from the Captain of the Phoenix, CPT Sparky, result in a bounce

PENDING:

  • Realignment for #hangar-chat, #pickup-games, and other related Discord channels along with some multiplayer-specific roles
  • Parsing RtF feedback to share with the leaders
  • The Commodore Volume 7
    • Thinking about a reformat for this, both to make it easier to compile and easier to read on devices other than computers
  • Competition resource - what we've done before to serve as a pool of ideas for what we can do next
  • Taking TM/3 (someday)
