Which reminds me: There WILL be a way to see the rewards at each tier in each commendation won't there? This way people spend less time climbing up tiers they might not want rewards from.

Yes, exactly this. The Diplomacy reward schedule is being updated to be a Commendation reward schedule including both Diplomacy as well as all of the new Commendation category rewards.
Rewards for tiering up also include opening up new assignments (which obviously won't be explicitly shown - we want you to discover these organically) and is, as well, a work in progress. Right now it's thinner than I would like, but we're working to strengthen it and will continue to work on it even after the system is released.

Assuming by missions you mean duty officer assignments, the answer is TBD. It will depend on Content's schedule and timing.
WARNING, I followed the image shack thread and my computer was hijacked. Might sound alarmist, however, after following the link, and clicking on a picture to get a better view; an unknown anti-virus program popped up and started to scan my computer. It said I had Trojans, Malware, worms, etc....about 15 before i stopped it.
I had run my Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware program Friday night, therefore, I know I did not have anything lurking on my computer, the only logical conclusion is that the link is a trap. As that was the first and only thing I did that day.
The program would not allow me to start: My Anti-Virus, My Anti-Malware Program, CMD, MSCONFIG, and Windows Restore. It also wouldn't allow me to put my computer in safe mode.
I had to do an image restore, now I am back up and working, but several months behind.
Figured I would warn you all. Heretic you should prob remove the link.
Got hit by this a few times. Certain ad companies don't check their client's ads closely enough to make sure the code is secure and legal. One of the methods I found for fixing this type of problem is to find the activation key for the fake antivirus software so I can get access to task manager, terminate the offending program, then delete the program. There might be simpler solutions for this.
Just wanted to drop a quick line and let you know that we finished a high-level review of the system from the leads and directors in preparation for the system rolling out to the closed beta. The reaction was very positive, and there were a number of good suggestions for streamlining the presentation which we'll be looking at this week, but no huge changes were requested.
All in all, this is great news in terms of things staying on schedule for the duty officer system. Just a little longer, and you'll all be able to get your hands on it and figure out brand new ways to break it and make me stay late at night figuring out how to fix things.
