    So I’m new at space. It’s unclear if once the launch is ready whether anyone should launch or just the person running the launch?

    Would I be helping by pushing the launch button or overstepping the role of position 2 on a launch?

    Thanks, -t
     
  2. If all points are in, then anyone can launch. The launch timer starts when the first person launches, doesn't matter what their place in the launch is. Wouldn't be too cool if everyone had to wait for the person who started the launch, and he/she has already gone to bed. :p:p:p

    Launches posted on the launch forum are free to join but note the following:

    1. The intentions of the initiator
    a) If the initiator puts in 576 points he/she is claiming first (captain) spot
    b) If the initiator puts in >576 points and states he/she wants 1st spot
    c) If the initiator
    states all spots open then this is a dog eats dog and the unwritten rule here is whoever puts 576 first claims first spot but don't rest on your laurels keep a watchful eye.

    2. The nature of the launch (QL)
    a) If there is a QL and the launcher holds a QL thou shalt not pass that person
    b) If there is a QL thou shalt not launch only the initiator holds that exclusive right unless otherwise stated
    c) If there is a QL (and more especially if there are 2 QLs) always wait for the third QL, if not the initiator holds the solemn right to launch or he/she may cede that right to anyone by statement

    But then every launch is unique and every launcher has their own set of rules (for example, check @Navigata07 signature) so make sure you communicate with the launcher if you would like to captain most people here are generous to give you a shot at captainship.

    Appreciate the mention. I do my best to make it very clear what I expect for my launches. (y):D

  6. I'm sorry - I understood the questions to be "if all points are in" who should push the launch button? In that case, it really doesn't matter, as there are no more points to be added, no room for other QLs, and no passing anyone. If the question is "who adds the last points and launches", then definitely @Teboho makes a very good summary of basic launch etiquette.

    I am so glad I asked the question! It was the first one, push now that all points are in on a non-QL, but I would have come up against that problem I'm sure on a QL. I botched my first flight big time (the litany of mistakes I made is pretty epic... again, apologies go out to JayJay) and the issue didnt come up the second.

    Again, thanks for the great answers - Flight away!
