FAQ

What is the SSCouncil?
The SS Council is a group of leaders within the SubSpace / Continuum community. Members include zone owners, Network Admins / Ops, Billing Admins / Ops, Client / Server developers, and Web Site Administrators. Our purpose is to maintain the integrity of the SSC Network while providing a safe place for gaming.

Can anyone join the council?
You must either be a zone owner in the SSC Network, a Server / Network Admin / Op, or run a major community news / resource site in order to be considered for membership. If you meet any of the above requirements, get in contact with MikeTheNose and he will forward your name to the council for voting.

I've got a suggestion, how can I have my voice heard?
If it's a suggestion for the game client, there's a 99.95% chance it's already been suggested before. The game client is currently not being actively developed, except for bug squashing and hack prevention. If it's related to the SSC or SSC matters, you can send it to MikeTheNose and he will forward it on to the council.
