I'm not sure the baby posts were a problem, per se - I think the problem at 
that end came because there seemed to be a core group of two or three people 
that were posting about ten times faster than everyone else, and each of their 
one paragraph posts didn't really go anywhere but along that single plot 
line.... that said, it's sort of realistic - I recall when my wife was having 
our two, and there didn't seem to be a lot else going on in the universe.
I think my problem with this joint mission has been the number of metagamers 
out there - players who know something, so contrive to have their character 
find it out. For a 'secret' that was revealed to a handful of CO's, it seemed 
to leach through the field pretty quick. Coupled to the fact that all of these 
sims seem to post faster than us (which isn't a complaint - our pace suits us, 
which is why we're here and not there) it left us chasing shadows a lot of the 
I think, if they run something like this again, they will need to think like a 
military hierarchy a bit more, and designate particular tasks to particular 
crews or departments from the start, so that everyone knows where they're 
coming from, and (for a while) where they're going to.
