Charter & S.O.P.
(Changes to the STO Charter & S.O.P. are coming to align it with the "NEW" TFD COMMUNITY CHARTER, as Revised 19 May 2013)
Bein' wurked on by Fleet Admiral Carri (26 Aug 13)Welcome to TFD. The rules and regulations in this policy are to be followed by all members of all ranks. Please read through and understand these following rules designed to protect you and all members of the community.
TFD Gaming is a community based on the simple rules of having fun. We focus on making the community enjoyable and easy to interact with other 'gamers' of a similar play style and mindset. We are spread across many games to meet the needs of all of our members. Our strengths are in our ability to communicate through multiple media outlets and in-game to meet the demands of such a large organization.
