An ongoing threat of killing and ambushing Rats (primarily on PC) exists
Rats are reminded not to engage in PvP while on rescues and not to violate FDev's ToS by combat logging. Have a high-wake plotted and jump to a different system if a threat is encountered. Notify dispatch and run rescues in PGs if needed.
Current CG Systems and other events
- Colonia Expansion Inititative CG (located around Colonia in the Eol Prou systems)
- LHS 3447 (Rare goods for Colonia CG)
Rahu (Salvage and BH CGs)
Reminder for new dispatchers: consider using a private group (PG) when rescuing a client in these systems.
Starport closure information: Starport Status
Permit locked Systems and Regions: Permit-systems
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.
Other News and Information
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>
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.
