Players are now able to submit public events via the events page via a link at the bottom of the page.

Once you submit an event it will be passed on to the staff team for moderation and acceptance. Please don't submit more than once if you do not see the event in the list - it will not show up until accepted.

Players found abusing this system will be dealt with accordingly.

Thank you.

* * * Guide to Posting Events * * *

This is just a short guide of what do do when posting an Event submission.


Step One - Posting in the Forums

Create a thread in the DarkSpace Events forum detailing your event and any relevant informaton.

If the event is during the planning stages with no set date, then make sure to use the prefix [Event Plan] in the thread title. This can be changed to [Event] only when and if an actual date is set for the event.


Step Two - Requesting via the Website

Providing your event has a date set and have posted in the forums as requested in Step One, you can now visit the Events page and click the ADD NEW EVENT link at the bottom.

You will be presented with a form to fill in with a short overview of the event.
You must fill in the title, the details, the time it is due to start, and the time you wish the event to end. Recur option and recur count can be ignored unless the event is to be a regular feature.

When filling in the details, be sure to link to your Event thread at the end of the submission. The details box must be filled in with raw (although limited) HTML and not BBML. Please use
for line returns and formatting for links (no quoation marks on links please).


Step Three - Wait for Approval

Please allow the Staff some time to reveiw and approve your event request. It is suggested to that you contact a member of the Administration team to make them aware, but please do not pester the Staff if it takes time to process the submission.

Some questions,

What is the expected eligibility for an event posted in the forums to be nominated for being an event by a player? (What do the admins expect from events of near future planned by players?)

Will events approved by admins receive a special server for their own? How can this be negotiated for?

Many events planned by players have a chance for inclusion of awards (DarkSpace wars) or special ships and gadgets (The past event with a special k'luth ship). How will these awards and new gadgets/ships will be introduced?

Will the players who proposed/planned an event receive guidance from the professional event leaders? Or are they expected to plan events and their rules on their own?

Will the event planner receive the privelege to supervise the event with temporary moderator/developer rights? How will the awards be dispersed to the winners of the events as per the set rules?

Anything that is inclusive and available to all players and is at least slightly outside normal play is eligible to be an event. Don't put an event up for "ICC attack Earth!!!" in order to try to rally your fleet, for example. But otherwise, we are fairly open to the use of the event list.

Will events approved by admins receive a special server for their own? How can this be negotiated for?
They can; this Event list change doesn't modify that process, though. With any event, if you have needs beyond just the existing servers, include that in your Event Plan thread, and talk to the staff. Most of us read the forums pretty regularly and will probably notice the planning thread. If you organize your post well, it will specify where the event will take place, what it will include, etc, so the staff can easily see what special needs you may have. Then just talk to the mods or admins when you see them and ask if you can have an admin discuss with you things like a custom server, etc.

Many events planned by players have a chance for inclusion of awards (DarkSpace wars) or special ships and gadgets (The past event with a special k'luth ship). How will these awards and new gadgets/ships will be introduced?
Same as above - just talk to the staff when you're still in planning. If we can accommodate special requests, we'll let you know. Generally speaking, exclusive content is more difficult and will take longer to get approved, designed, coded and included than using existing material. Awards are negotiable on a per-event basis, but if we think an event likely to increase interest in the game or engage a lot of players, we can generally throw in a few prizes.

Will the players who proposed/planned an event receive guidance from the professional event leaders? Or are they expected to plan events and their rules on their own?
Who are the professionals? You can ask for help from anyone, but as we don't have a corps of eventers, in effect you are designing the events yourself.

Will the event planner receive the privelege to supervise the event with temporary moderator/developer rights? How will the awards be dispersed to the winners of the events as per the set rules?
No; unless we design a way to make moderator rights only work on a specific server and not affect other servers, we won't be giving temporary rights increases to players for the purposes of events - because if you mute a player now, they're muted everywhere; if you kick them, they're kicked from all of DS (and they get a mark on their account). Thus, the potential harm from misused power is too great.
That said, if necessary we can try to arrange for moderators to be present to enforce any house rules specified in the event.
Prizes/awards will vary based on the type. Credits or prestige awards can be issued as a coupon, while enhancements will need to be provided in person by an admin. In general, you just need to communicate needs to the staff before the event and then we will plan how to accommodate you.
