What are the implications of the O-Deck following me in the next phase? And then the phase after that?

What do I need to do now in order to be able to post articles on the O-Deck in the new regime? What are the regimes (greys, stars, etc) that will come into play and in which order and HOW CAN I MAKE MYSELF READY?
