Dispatch Information

 

Mecha Now Has Tweet Functionality

Thanks to Edmonson for all of his effort keeping TweetSqueak functional. And thanks to Tivec, Mecha now has all of Tweety's functionality and more.

The preferred method for tweets should now be !tweetcase <case number|client nick> which will tweet a preformatted message including the case's platform and distance from the case's landmark system (i.e. Fuelum, Sol, Colonia, etc.). !tweet is still functional and can be used in the event that rats are needed for multiple cases (such as on Xbox or PS4).

See Mecha's Command Reference for more information.

Current CG Systems and other events

  • Lave (Rare Trade CG)

  • EOL Prou Lw-L C8-215 (Colonia Trade and Combat CGs)

Reminder for new dispatchers: consider using a private group (PG) when rescuing a client in these systems.

Fuel Rats Dispatch Board

The board has a new beta available! Help us test it!

https://dispatch.fuelrats.com/beta/

 

The premiere tool for monitoring rescues!

Note: Now requires a drilled rat account to access.

https://dispatch.fuelrats.com/

Note: If the web board numbers no longer match the BOT's numbers, use "!reindex" in IRC to update the case numbers.

When to clear or md a case

Not sure when to !md or !clear a case, check this out: When to !md and !delete cases

The N/A rat is now supported by the !clear command. When an invalid case happens, just use "!clear <case> N/A"! REMEMBER: Always ensure there is an inject or a note explaining the situation of the case!

Debriefs in Other Languages

If a client is using a E:D version that doesn't support Latin characters or needs a debrief translated by another Rat, the #debrief channel can be used in those cases. Please /part the channel after the debrief is completed.

Calculating Supercruise Times

See this guide that Masterloon put together on calculating SC travel times for long distances

Use of MechaSqueak in IRC

Please check on the status of cases or get case information in PM with Mecha, whenever possible. Using !list or !quote in our public channels spams the channels with information that doesn't need to be there and can give anyone watching information about cases. Remember that Rats aren't necessarily the only ones who are in our channels.

Mecha can be accessed via PM by typing: /msg MechaSqueak[BOT], followed by the appropriate command such as list -i or quote <case>

Training

This unofficial training can be especially useful for Ratlings before their drill, but in no way should make them feel pressured to complete their drill before they're ready.  As always, this training is 100% optional and voluntary. This training is not required in order to rat or dispatch.
