Much obliged, chief.

General wiki announcement:

There is now a #wiki-work channel on the Cm discord, so it's a lot easier to co-ordinate edits as well as post any pages which you think need updating.

There is now a @Wiki Contributor role on the Cm discord, this role is to make it easier for others to ping players who update the wiki frequently and hopefully it'll allow for faster responses.

If you're interested in having this role just ask in #permissions-requests on the cm discord.

A small thing, but the last paragraph of "The Universe Today" in the lore section has an error: "Though taken lightly at first, the skinning and beheading of two Colonial Marshals by a crowd waving a SC banner have led the USCM to elevate their threat level to BRAVO."

SC should be FC, so it should read "...by a crowd waving an FC banner..."

So this is a super small difference, that I'd bet 99.9% of the community doesn't give a shit about, but it's been bugging me enough to want to mention it. Every time a USCM Admiral or WY exec comes aboard, everyone runs around screaming that they have "diplomatic immunity" and are exempt from the law. This obviously comes from the Marine Law page, where it's said that WY has Diplomatic Immunity and High Command personnel have "emergency powers."

Well -- not really. Diplomatic immunity is given to diplomatic representatives from a foreign country, operating on behalf of that government. Example dictionary definition.

On the other hand, "corporate immunity" is probably a more fitting concept, which describes the personal immunity of corporate officials from laws when acting on behalf of the corporation. Example dictionary definition. WY may be a British/Japanese conglomerate, but it's agents represent the company rather than the nations themselves.

The USCM High Command personnel "emergency powers" is fine. But more accurate would be "sovereign immunity," where the officers of the High Command are protected from suit as the state has deemed them immune from all legal action. Example definition.

This is probably the most autist thing ever posted, but if I watch marines start screaming about "diplomatic immunity" again my nose is going to start bleeding.

Thanks for letting us know, I believe the higher ups are looking into this now.

Add a charge where MPs committing a crime be given double time, just like officers.

Marine Law and it's procedures can only be edited/changed by Apop/Rahl so that may or may not happen.

If I'm correct MP's are classed as officers so I think this rule is already applied.

You can't perform a xeno autopsy currently without a "Weyland Brand Automatic Autopsy System" of which as far as I'm aware wasn't re-added to the game, so in short you can't currently.

If it gets re-added, sure.

If you're wanting just a normal autopsy guide though, that can be found here.

I think there's placeholders already, but information on the new order abilities would be great!

If you're meaning the "orders" ability, that'll hopefully be done by later today/tomorrow.
