View Full Version : Town meeting, ya'll!

11-19-2002, 10:38 PM
Yes, I know I said ya'll. Anyways, I thought that it might be a good idea for us to have another topic about what we plan to contribute to the town. I know that we aren't going to start it for a while, we don't know what we're going to be as professions and so on and so on, but even so we can have general, non-class specific jobs. For instance, Wraith and I (assuming you want to, Wraith) will be leaders of the town, at least in it's fledgling days. We'll try and set up a council of sorts as time goes on, with Wraith and I (and MikeC too if the Massassi join us) as permanent members but several others chosen by the rest of the joint PA. This Council will govern the town, make decisions and rules, yadda yadda yadda. what other jobs would you guys be interested in? we'll have a sheriff type, sure, I think Setsuko was interested in that a while ago. what else you guys? A secretary, perhaps? maybe diplomats, class leaders (head smuggler, head combat guy, etc.), what? tell me what you guys think, or maybe it's still too early to make these decisions....I'm getting ancy just like the rest of you are probably =)

That sounds like a good plan to me. I wouldn't mind doing something with security/combat (under setsuko of course :D ). I don't think we should get to organized though, like some other PA's out there that have a council for everything under the sun.

Sure Gaal'. Id love to :D
well.. uhmmmm

so we have two people to govern the gang....
we want a sort of sherrif
maybe a sort of cashier... you know... some guy that brings in the taxes.
well... i know zendjir ... or was it ascari.... is willing to open up his shop in our town.

uhm... i have no idea how big our group will be and all.... but big decsissions is better to be brought in into the entire group right now... we have 23 members.... its still to small to pick a group of politicians and so.

heads of certain groups would be a big yes.... we just have to figure (fight :D) out who will be th head of the different groups of proffesions in our PA.

ill make a list here wit the groups so far.

excellent wraith =) and yes, we only have 23 of our own, but remember how we were planning on combining with the massassi? well as far as I know that's going to end up working out, and they have like 30 people so that's over 50 (assuming they all come back) which is a fair size.

I think with the members we have too many titles would be cumbersome. We should set it up like a corporation a bit. We should have a city council that simply ensures the "mayor" does not get out of line. Also there should be a seargeant-at-arms, or sheriff, that ensures the laws and practices we vote to adopt as a whole are enforced. We should also have a bursar responsible for the tax assessment issue, which still needs to be finalized. I would also not favor a leader for each profession, but maybe two cabinet level positions that divide the PA into simply combat and technical professions. We could call the VP's, or ministers, or anything really. Maybe minister of defense and minister of production (or something like that). Both would have equal standing and report to the "mayor" and council. Each could also have an assistant VP to stand in when they are on a mission or not logged on (which should never happen, lol). I also like the previously posted idea of a designated diplomat to travel and represent our PA, maybe Greg (politician) or an explorer, but this person should not hold another position because of the dangers of travel.

Since most people are in this game to do there own thing, I think a minimum of regulation is required. Otherwise members will just get annoyed by the many rules, rules should not restrict people to do what they want, except when it is against the PA's interests.

I think the following "community-roles" are neccesary:

A PA Leader; It is he who makes the basic decisions for the PA, like who to accept in it, and who to ban and he arranges the administrative part of the PA (meetings and such. Important decisions, like moving our town to a different location and the PA's goals should be made by a majority of votes by the members.

A Mayor; He will govern the town and it's defence. And make decisions like where to place buildings and the defences.

An PA-asset-keeper (or whatever you call it): He will look after the properties of the PA; buildings in other towns/ PA-money/ A PA-governed service.

A Lawyer: Someone who will keep all these people in line, he cannot be banned. He will have the possibility to punish people for their bad way of acting, in accordance to PA-law (some simple rules). The important part of this person is that he has to be independant.

If the PA grows larger, several tasks of these people can be handed down to others. Elections are held every 2 months/ the lawyer will stay on for a year, or untill he chooses to give up his position or voted away with a 75% mayority of votes in a meeting.

I can do the lawyer part, since I'm law-educated (not a judge or anything, just the basics).

I like your ideas Zendjir but I still think we need a sheriff/security person (Setsuko).

11-27-2002, 08:35 PM
I've been doing a lot of thinking about my professon lately and I have made a few decisions. Firstly, let me explain something to you guys. I picked miner as a career because its a good way to make money and is out of the way of the hustle and bustle of the city (discreet;) ) but my first love is of combat. Im a full time member of an Operation Flashpoint clan, Elite Rebel Assault, in a league set up and run by 'The Combat Zone'. (We are currently 12th on the ladder out of 65).

I have been in the clan over a year now and I'm known as -={ERA}=-Major-Kwok. I am a proffesional at leading troops in battle and regularly score very highly in league matches. I dont wanna blow my own trumpet or anything but I would really like to be involved with the security of our town and am tactically minded enough to head up our defence force. How do you guys feel about that?

If you want a reference you can email our clan leader
-={ERA}=-Ldr-NBA / ncc_team@hotmail.com
-={ERA}=-Col-Chaosiris / osirisorion@hotmail.com
for a fair and honest opinion of my abilities, I'm sure you will be impressed. :o

Anyway, check out our site if u r interested in flashpoint n stuff

I say we wait until the game comes out, then decide on who is going to do what. There is so much about the game that we don't know even exists yet and will probably impact some decisions we are trying to make now.

11-28-2002, 09:09 AM
Yeah, I know it's early to talk about it allready. But it's important that people talk about their ideas for the PA, and besides...we need to talk about something!

And to kwok; I just hope SWG will require tactical insight :) you could be of great help in that case. ....andeehhh, I have been busy with OPF too; making missions mainly. Love the coding part. But I dont have the official version :( couldnt buy it anywhere.

11-28-2002, 12:07 PM
Oh don't get me wrong. I agree we should be talking, I presently have nothing better to keep me busy so I am all for talking :D

I work 10-12 hours a day with breaks in between, but when I am off duty I have nothing to do but sit around and play on the computer. We play Sum of all Fears a few hours a night and the rest of the time I am working on a website. http://swgassociates.com I am learning much faster now ;)
