If you decide to go forward with this, I urge you to consider the following:

- Try to include as many fleets as possible. Make it an inter-fleet "circus" that revels in diversity and that stands firmly upon the grounds of neutrality. You will (1) win more supporters to your cause in this way and, if done correctly, (2) perhaps help to mend old wounds. I'm not saying you should avoid controversy, only that you should navigate its waters with wisdom and with an eye toward the greater good of the community.

- Avoid the temptation to cover inter-fleet politics and gossip. Foster friendship, teamwork, and community.

- Related to this last point, try to avoid alienating fleets and individuals by classifying consoles, play styles, powers, etc. as as "P2W," "cheesy," "no skill," etc. IIf this community's manifold discussions about the problems with STO PvP have demonstrated anything it is that there is no Archimedean point from which to develop an "ethics" of PvP. We have to work with what we have, and there are many different views on what is "appropriate." Respect the pluralism.
