Me writing about my experiences with joining a fleet would only be relevant during a period of time when the fleet system is going to be expanded and thus everyone is talking about it.

The shameless plug part is just a bonus.

I rather think he was describing his own post.

I considered doing the same thing he is, turn my alt-fleet in an open fleet of some kind, free of some of the idiosynchrosies that bugged me so much in other fleets. (Drama mostly, not just the 'bad kind'. I can actually shrug that off relatively easily. It's this whole 'we're a family' thing that makes my skin crawl. And the ranks. Specifically the existance of lower ranks. I tend to prefer to pretend none of this Vega Colony ensign-in-command stuff ever happened, so I replaced them with clearance levels myself.) But I'm having some utterly mindboggling technical SNAFUs right now, so this is hardly a good time for me to go and make sudden, unannounced absenses on my part into a potential problem for others anyway.

Good post about the benefits of fleets! I joined my fleet five years ago, and I've never regretted that decision. I hope everyone takes the time to find the fleet that's the right fit for them as we move into fleet-centric Season 6.

Wow you've been playing STO for 5 years? You must be level 100 Uberthrawnmegazord Admiral.
But yeah, good on you for finding a second home. My adoptive fleet began its guild life in CoH (another classic Cryptic product), and has grown to over a thousand members/characters across all its games. (I'm pretty sure the last update said 2000 but I don't want to misquote since I can't see in-game email from the forum.)
