Outpost 10F Documentation
Outpost 10F is a complex entity which has grown over several years into what it is today.
It is easy, especially for new people, to feel a bit lost when facing the vast amount of
possibilities this site has to offer. On this page you will find all kinds of information
that should be interesting to both the newbies and our seasoned officers. Furthermore it offers/has links
to the official rules and regulations that keep the community going.
If you are new to Outpost 10F, don't panic. You don't have to read all of this in order to
have some fun. In fact, the best way of getting to know us is chatting in one of our chatrooms.
If asked nicely, any of us will be happy to show you around. Chatting in Outpost 10F may be
a bit different from what you are used to from other chats. So reading about "Getting Started"
in the Outpost Basics section of this page won't hurt. More information about all
functions, visit the Site Functions. For the fun part, there is Having fun @ OTF.
Last but not least, other interesting links at Miscellaneous.
