Created by Captain Anthony Watson on Mon Jul 27th, 2015 @ 7:09pm

It is important that members of the simulation actively contribute to posting efforts in order for a creative and entertaining atmosphere to be maintained. We know there are times when players simply cannot meet the posting activity standards due to other commitments in their real life. The following is a brief guideline as to the leave of absence policy for the USS Magellan and must be adhered to by all members.

===Leave Policy===

Semi-Leave of Absence (semi-LOA) - A semi-leave of absence typically lasts one to three days, no longer than one week, and is characterized by a diminished ability to meet activity standards for the duration of a player's declared leave time. A player who declares themself to be semi-LOA may still be required to meet certain activity standards per agreement with the Commanding Officer, but their activity level for the month will be judged according to the details of their leave.

Leave of Absence (LOA) - A leave of absence typically lasts one to three days, no longer than one week, and is characterized by a complete inability to meet activity standards for the duration of a player's declared leave time. A player who declares themself to be LOA will be exempt from activity standards for the duration of their leave time and their activity level for the month will be judged according to the details of their leave.

Semi-Extended Leave of Absence (semi-ELOA) - A semi-extended leave of absence typically lasts anywhere from one week to three months and is characterized by a diminished ability to meet activity standards for the duration of a player's declared leave time. A player who declares themself to be semi-ELOA may still be required to meet certain activity standards per agreement with the Commanding Officer, but their activity level for the month will be judged according to the details of their leave.

Extended Leave of Absence (ELOA) - A leave of absence typically lasts anywhere from one week to three months and is characterized by a complete inability to meet activity standards for the duration of a player's declared leave time. A player who declares themself to be ELOA will be exempt from activity standards for the duration of their leave time and their activity level for the month will be judged according to the details of their leave.



===Enforcement===

As noted above, this policy is meant to maintain a creative and entertaining atmosphere. Questions, comments, and concerns are always welcomed and should be directed to a member of the Magellan's Command Staff via private message or email. Modification and enforcement of this policy is at the discretion of the Magellan's Commanding Officer.
