Title: Promotion?
Post by: Bowsy 112 on January 09, 2015, 01:25:54 PM
What do I do if I want to get Gary Promoted a from Staff Sergeant to Company Sergeant Major?
I know we used to have a system for it.

I'm going to have Linde promoted from O-4 to O-5 by a letter from the Headquarters of the German Navy, backdated to take effect the day before Otto von Beck got promoted to the same rank.

Well its more if Fred and Gary get sent to Atlantis, Gary should be promoted.
In the British Army Technically, a Staff Sergeant and a Company Sergeant Major are the same rank, In theory. Except a CSM is just the most experienced SSgt.
I mean again a CSM is technically a higher rank, but their dutys arnt much different. Its hard to explain and get round.
I mean Gary is meant to be a Colour Sergeant but because he is technically attached the the Signal unit of the UK SFSG he is a Staff Sergeant. but yeah.
On Atlantis, Gary should be promoted to CSM as he is the most experienced enlisted man of the British Army in the SGC.

Just have it that the Army gave a waiver to personnel assigned to SGC.

I dont get what you mean.

What I mean is that the MoD determines that since the SGC is a special case that promotion decisions be left up to the local commander. That should get around the problem.

Oh no I mean OOC is there anything I have to do, at one point we had a system for dealing with in game promotions, I don't know if that still stands. The MoD would promote him to CSM when they move to Atlantis anyway, as he would deserve the promotion.

Make sure that when you are going for promotions that you go through the right channels both in game and via the game GM. SGC would be Mel and Atlantis will be Mandi.

I think we had a thread set up at one point that one needed to submit promotion requests to -- and that the appropriate authorities would discuss it in the staff portion of the boards and come to a decision there. I know we had certain requirements that needed to be met, but we might have to set all of that up again. I'm not sure what happened to it.

I understand we lost quite a lot of those threads some time ago with the last change. That would have been pre- March last year.

That would be my guess as well. Mel, Mandi and I will probably have to get together and discuss how we'd like to handle that going forward for both SG-1 and Atlantis -- if proceed with the same format or go with something new.

Well its more I have how its sorted in Game already done.

OOC what do I need to do.

I think for now until we get something set up, those concerned only need to PM and state the reason for the promotion. That will do for now I guess  :samanime12:

So do I PM you or Mandi?

Me, since your characters are still attached to Stargate command

I want to give Linde a backdated promotion to full commander so she will outrank Otto von Beck, who she recruited into SGC.

Otto is Commander in rank, Linde is currently L/Commander. If you make her Captain you'd have to change her history a bit Robert and her age as well, she is 34 now. She'd have to be at least Elle's age of 38. A two rank jump is a bit much in play. Plus she'd no longer be eligible in the XO position of the Saggitta, which I assume she was going to take over from Maria

She's a lieutenant commander (O-4). A bump up to O-5 would be in line for here to be Saggitta's XO. Backdate the promotion for it to take effect before Otto's. I've seen it done often enough.

Okies, when Linde sees Admiral Davidson in the next little while, he'll have the news for her.
