Welcome to Outpost 10F!
Outpost 10F is a large community with its own spirit and atmosphere. This getting started document will help you learn the basics. To add, longtime members in chat are almost always willing to help a newcomer and to answer questions.
The following areas are covered in this document:
Outpost 10F is a diverse online community of members who enjoy
various Science Fiction and Fantasy media. Since 1997, the Outpost's primary
goal is to bring together the efforts, creativity, and enthusiasm of science fiction/fantasy
fans from all over the world. Through participation, teamwork, and
unique member talents, this site seeks to provide an environment similar to that
idealized in many of the shows and movies we love so much. Our main goal is providing
a means of communication between fans. Each of our chat themes hosts an array of functions intended
to provide our visitors and members with an enjoyable environment.
Outpost 10F consists of multiple "chat themes" based on sci-fi and fantasy genres.
Star Trek has three themes, with its main chat
Romulan chat D'Deridex
and Klingon chat, the Rotarran
Then there's Star Wars, with the
Cloud City Cantina
, the Lord of the Rings
theme Minas Tirith
a Game of Thrones chat theme named King's Landing
and a Doctor Who one known as the B.A.R.D.I.S.
All themes lead to the same chat room where people with related sci-fi/fantasy interests will be chatting!
Other possibilities: Departments
Although many people are completely satisfied with talking to other fans in the
chatrooms, personnel also have the opportunity to join organized work teams called
departments and assist with creating and managing various projects relevant to the
focus of the community. Such projects are a great opportunity for those who
would like to showcase their creative talents and abilities. One such
example would be our regular trivia competition. To learn more about the Departments,
check the Department Information Page
Outpost 10F has a ranking system. Every chatroom has its own ranks and insignia.
The ranking system is used for both fun as well as to reward work and commitment to the community. Each rank
has its according clearance level (CL). Newcomers get CL 1, and then are able
to work their way up. Clearance levels represent access rights to the various perks of the room. Junior ranks go from rank 1 to 4, and seniors are from 5 to 8. All higher ranks are Flag Ranks. All officers are expected to treat others with the proper respect. More information at the Rank Insignia page
Outpost 10F's rules of conduct are known as the Prime Directives. They are the foundation
of the chat environment. Every member is expected to know these rules and act accordingly. People who do not respect them will be removed from the chatroom. The rules are
simple and fair. They are based on mutual respect and co-operation. To be able to register
and obtain a level 2 clearance code, one must agree to the rules as they are Outpost
10F's terms of agreement. The Prime Directives can be viewed
Outpost 10F offers a variety of additional features, both in and outside the chats.
For example, one can view the dossiers that other members have created. Everyone who
has clearance level 2 or higher access can create a dossier him-or-herself. Then there
is Outpost 10F's Command HQ, accessible for senior officers (clearance level 5 and above) only.
The Headquarters contains several options to control and edit ship functions.
Also there's Media Downloads
where one can find Sci-Fi and fantasy images, fonts, and sounds.
