After only six months I an out as XO and after a year I'm off the USS Riverside. I was unceremoniously removed by one of the admins of the forum without the permission of Captain Schulte. My account was deleted after the Captain had told me flat out, in an e-mail, that my account would NOT be deleted and I would be listed in the VIP section of the crew list. Which I was after my account name was recreated. But everything associated with my account is gone; my post count and total time on line are gone. I was one of the top posters on the forum before I was removed.

Jealousy is am ugly emotion.

I am starting my own ship, USS Vre'kasht NX-33187. Check us out here:
