Please see +jhelp player for help on most player commands for the Jobs system.


Building Requests

+arequest <title>=<description>

This specialized command requests <title> and <description> from building staff.

Please review NEWS BUILDING AUTO-ROOMS for specific details on how to submit your auto-room request and NEWS BUILDING PERMISSIONS on how to get started on your general building project.

Bug Reporting

+bug <title>=<description>

This command is used for bug reporting. In <title> put the command that is bugged, or something else appropriate.

Please be as descriptive as possible in the <description> field. What were the results you were expecting? What happened in its place? By giving lots of detail here, it saves us the time of tracking you down to drag the information out of you. Thanks.

Submitting Concepts

+concept <sphere/group> = <concept>

This command is used to submit a character concept for a particular sphere (e.g., Shifter, Vampire, Mortal+) or group (e.g. APD, Hospital, etc.). Please read the news files for additional details that might be required by various staffers.


+myjob <#>
+myjob/add <#>=<comment>
+roll <dice>=<difficulty> !job<#>
+myjob/wp <#>

This suite of commands allows the submitter to view and modify jobs that they have submitted to the system. When viewing a job that you own, you can only see the comments that you have added, not comments added by others.

Jobs can be tagged by staff for you to see. In those instances, you can see all comments added, not just those you have added.

You can also roll dice and have the results submitted directly to a job. This works with willpower as well via the +myjob/wp command.

Pitching an Idea to Staff

+pitch <title>=<description>

This command tosses an idea to staff. The idea can be story related or just an idea on how to make the game better. PITCH jobs are different from those created with +request. They are not issued due dates. Staff is under no obligation to even answer them. By procedure, they are either discarded with no fanfare, tucked away for future implementation or they are run with either in modified or unmodified form.

For story pitches, it puts a story idea into the RP jobs bucket. Now, this is not a request for a TP, this is a method of giving story ideas, or theme ideas, to the staff for consideration. If you want to request a scene, use +request.

Requesting Things from Staff

+request <title>=<description>

This command requests <title> and <description> from staff. The request is added to the jobs list and will be tended to as soon as possible. Please do not bug staff - it will be handled shortly.

There is a standard three day turnaround time on +requests.

Reporting Typos

+typo <typo description>

This command reports a typo. Please be specific about where the typo is, what the typo is, and what you think it should be changed to.

XP Requests

+xprequest <stat> <new level>=<justification>

This command is used to raise your stats via XP. The justification should include such information as: what steps you are taking to learn/hone/use this stats, whether or not you have an instructor, and any other relevant information.

Please see NEWS EXPERIENCE for additional information.
