I'm sure many of you know the channel "EliteSTF" This channel is one of the larger channels in STO.(3000 Members as of May 21, 2012) I am 1 of 2 channel admins of the channel (The owner hasnt been on STO in forever) So here are a few channel guidelines and some general information!
CHANNEL RULES (List is subject to change)

I've seen a lot of negative between players over the stupidest of reasons on this channel. I'm glad to see it finally being moderated. Please sticky this so these rules don't get misplaced by over posting. I hope to see more of what happened on ESTF today. I hope this stops the childish bs that has plagued this channel.
I object to the thread being moved, cause... not alot of players actualy look in the feedback, and its not feedback, its rules to 1 of the biggest channels ingame, please move this back to discussion and sticky. Please. No one is gonna see it in PVE feedback
Congratulations. You're doing a very good job at killing off EliteSTF as a viable way to group up with people to have some fun.
Ill say it again, there is only one thing in the channel that causes *any* disruption at all: the moderators. If you just sat back and didnt have a temper tantrum when people didnt follow a bunch of unnecessary rules, there would never be any problems.
People advertising for Vault or CE groups never impeded STF's forming. Muting the entire channel for hours at a time when you cant have your way does.
Oh, and by the way, just in case someone tries to get tetchy: no, Ive never looked for vault groups. Ive only ever done it once, and never will again. I think its a waste of time and a very poor idea (gating content, etc).
