DataDocs

 

A DataDoc (“Data Document”) is an official file of the Republic Navy that is logged on the Fleet Datanet (Forums).  These files represent written orders, briefings, reports, and requests.


All DataDocs must be written in the appropriate format, using the templates given in these Operating Procedures, before being submitted to the relevant Files section of the Fleet Datanet for the unit or branch they concern (DataDocs of fleet-wide relevance should be submitted to the main “Fleet Files” directory).



Table of Data Documents




Message Codes


Every Data Document should begin with a  MessageCode.  This is a pre-set sequence of acronyms that represent various meta-information tags regarding the nature of the document.  Each Message Code line should begin with a double forward-slash to indicate it is part of the Code, in the following sequence:


//<DataDoc Type>

//<Security Level>

//<Priority Code>

//<Addressed Unit>

//x<Author Position Code>

//o<System Message to Personnel/Officer/Private (Select)>



List of Acronyms:

SECLEV - Security Level - indicates how classified/secret the data contained in the document is.  Level Three is cleared for dissemination to all personnel (grade E-1 upwards).  Level Two is restricted to Non-Commissioned Officers and Officers (grade E-2 upwards) only.  Level One is restricted to Junior Officers and above only (grade O-1 upwards).  Level Zero is restricted to Senior Officers and above only (grade O-2 upwards).

PRIORITY - Priority Code - indicates how urgent the data contained in the document is.  Code Blue is standard non-urgent information.  Code Gold represents important information.  Code Red represents vital information of very high importance.

GAVCRUGRU - Gav Daragon Cruiser Strike Group - the operational fleet unit of one Valour-class cruiser escorted by three or four Thranta-class corvettes, of which RSS Gav Daragon is the Flagship.

GAVMARCOM - Gav Daragon Marine Company - the Republic Marine Corps personnel assigned to RSS Gav Daragon.

GAVINTDIV - Gav Daragon Naval Intelligence Division - the Republic Naval Intelligence Corps personnel assigned to RSS Gav Daragon.

GAVSTAROPS - Gav Daragon Starship & Starfighter Operations - the members of RSS Gav Daragon’s Able Crew and Starfighter Corps Squadron.

SYSMETOPP  - System Message To Operational Personnel - indicates the intended audience of the DataDoc are all active personnel in the appropriate unit, usually from the commanding officers.

SYSMETOFF - System Message to Officers - indicates the intended audience of the DataDoc are superior officers, usually from subordinates.

SYSMETPRIV - System Message to Private - indicates the intended audience of the DataDoc is specified private individuals.


Therefore, in the example Message Code:


//CAPREP

//SECLEV THREE

//PRIORITY BLUE

//GAVSTAROPS

//xSQLDR

//oSYSMETOFF


The reader knows immediately that the DataDoc is a Combat Air Patrol Report written by a Squadron Leader to the Officers of the Gav Daragon Star Ship & Fighter Operations branch, rated as non-urgent information of a low security level that enables any personnel to access and read it.


Remember: Even if you can OOCly read a file on the forum, if your character does not have the appropriate SECLEV, they cannot ICly read it!
