Winter, 18th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Flights/Runs:
Red Ingoth

Upcoming Hatchings:

Winter is in full swing as the Northwest reaches the middle stages of the cold month, and Dalibor, taking full advantage of a crackdust filled break in Threadfall, is back at it again. Delving into the Southern ice and snow, they have paired with Grove Weyr to fully explore the lands they only slightly uncovered the previous turn during the Jungle Expedition. This, however, will not be a warm and relaxing waltz through the woods; although was it ever that to begin with?

Hatchings are one of the biggest reoccurring events on Dalibor as a site, and they're a lot of fun! To make sure they stay fun for everyone involved, though, here are our standard guidelines for what's considered polite behavior for players during and following a hatching.

- If you have one or more candidates for a clutch, tag them into the clutch as soon as you can (as allowed by real life, etc.) The hatchrunner cannot make Impressions to characters that are not posted in the hatching thread.
- Avoid giving spoilers about Impressions before being given an indication that the player of the Impressee has seen the Impression. After they acknowledge the Impression in cbox or in the Hatching thread, it is safe to congratulate them, discuss what will come, etc.
- Avoid complaining about Impressions in cbox - this includes yours AND those of other players! It's insensitive to the hatchrunner and to whoever might be excited about getting their match. Remember, this is a game with many players - play nice, and consider if your OOC comments are spoiling their fun. If you have concerns about Impressions or hatching conduct, please PM the admin/mod team.
- Avoid harassing the hatchrunner for more Impression posts, faster Impression posts, or other Impression-related information. While we understand that hatchings are exciting and everyone is looking forward to seeing more babies and more bondings, hatchings can be busy and stressful times for the hatchrunner and pressure to post faster is rarely appreciated. Staff keeps tabs on hatching pace and will communicate with the hatchrunner if there is an issue.
- Hatchrunners are heavily discouraged from holding babies "hostage" for a certain number of posts. Participants are encouraged to post reactions as assistance to help give the hatchrunner things to feed off of, but a certain pace (defined in the hatching sign-up page) is expected of the hatchrunner.
- Unless prevented by real life, it's polite and expected that you will accept your character's new bonded via an Impression post, even a short one. Not doing so often implies that you don't like or accept the Impression, or don't care enough to play it, which devalues the hatchrunner's hard work.

1. No advertising.

2. No in-depth discussion of highly personal issues, incl. medical issues affecting you, your family or friends, or your pets. Do not ask for medical advice in the cbox.

3. Please refrain from explicit description of illegal, violent or gross subjects. Be mindful of your fellow members and guests to the site.

4. Important communications for staff should be sent via PM - just because someone is on the site does not mean they are looking at the cbox! :)
