I think activity should pick up before we mod any contest people.

my point exactly about it. Honestly, it is a little annoying that I can't edit stuff as I deem necessary, with the changes that have been done lately, but the Gmods are active enough to be of use (Jack and Harry, you ROX!) so I don't think that the few contests that currenly take place (what, fifteen members active at most?) really call for a personal modding of the contests boards.

As for the general discussion that has taken place here, I side with what Jr said. Can't put it better than him. I don't want to repeat what he said because, as Leman pointed out, I'd be regurgitating Jr's words (he meant it for Haze, but same thing xP)

Harry's suggestions seem good to me- I'd assume that the town hall meeting is free partecipation, with staff being more pressed to partecipate. I just hope we won't end up talking about our feelings there :x
[/bad joke]

So yeah, that's all I have to say.

The proposals you make Harry do work on the most and yeah the communicating through actually saying what you are doing would be a big help. I like the Town Hall idea which is alot better than just speaking to mods by pm. As for the resigning of the current people in charge gracefully, I am more than willing to give them an opportunity for them to do so.

I believe for the council it should consist of...

Leader- Hkim
Old Leader- Jack (if he is active, his input would be welcome)
Battles- Mike
Stories- Emma
Park- TT
Judges- DG
Mods- Haze, Kat, (Fenix), (FossilFusion- only if he's still a mod)

I was going to also suggest 1 member voted in every month to represent the views of the members, but if this Town hall proposal goes ahead then it wouldn’t be necessary.

Overall thanks Harry for your response thus far.

Galleon does just as much work in the Stories board as Emma, I don't see why he shouldn't be on the list.

I'VE GOT YOUR BACK, BUDDY.

I'm aware that Galleon is an excellent mod for the story boards, but having two in the council doesn't make any sense. Maybe they could rotate every so often.

I didn't mean atm, but if the activity does pickup, because it could flop again and a mod would be useless. Just a foresight on my part.

You missed my point. All you do is post in stories. You're never on AIM and rarely battle or even post outside of them except to approve things. So in essence, you're just another story mod just like how Mike is basically a reffing mod.

Because the rest of the URPG was under the assumption that the council made decisions that affected its members directly. Having two story mods in the council and one that doesn't even do anything outside of it is just pointless and stupid.

The council should consist of moderators that actually interact with the members and know how they act and feel. This would help avoid angering them like the last thing the council did.

Please don't quote me or anything. I'm tired of all this stuff that's happening and the stupid decisions of late. Just let it go.

Since when was the intention of the Council to have someone from each section represented? imo, an ideal Council would be like crazy said, filled with those officials/moderators who interact with the members- and they don't necessarily have to be moderators either; some of the current officials would make great council members. And really, being active in the URPG doesn't mean approving stuff and maybe rarely going to have a forum battle, its more than that. It's talking with other members, and just interacting with the community as a whole.

Oh, and really idk how to say this, but thanks for the changes so far, HKim. :0

Since I proposed the idea. One council member would have jurisdiction, or expertise, in each section. Of course, each member should also be perfectly capable of solving minor issues on other sections.
The leader shoul have a general expertise, and thus would integrate all the input into a final decision.

I like that idea. It'll give me a chance to come and demand that my voice be heard. SOCIALIST! DON'T KILL MY GRANDMA!

Anyway, I would definitely be interested in seeing Town Halls get instated. Not only would it keep the leaders connected with the members, it would also speed up the process of Trainer's Court debate, since we'd be able to bring up issues that have been taken up there.

If my being part of the council is problematic, I honestly don't mind stepping down either.

Not sure what else I can say here; I agree with half the stuff in this thread, but my power resides in stories and stories alone. Just posting so people don't misinterpret my lack of input as not caring.

I'd like to add that people should stop picking on the story board.
It's been helluvalot better than when Jack or I or Meg used to run things, and Emma and George deserve some credit for that. And yes, big decisions usually do involve the story boards, so it's more than natural that George and Emma get a say in the council. Hell, Mike only does battles/reffing and he has a say.

Good point.

The Town Hall meetings will be welcomed and Emma, I don't see why you should step down. You've been fine, as far as I can tell.

If you make a post you're there to be quoted.

I think it would be wrong to judge other mods when in essence you too are a specialised mod yourself. As far as I'm aware you're not involved in the story board, the contests or national park. While battling is the main part of the URPG it is not the only part. While you are active on the forums, I wouldn't say you're majorly active in reffing, ref testing or battling.

Well maybe the intentions should be changed. It would be more beneficial to have the section leaders in the meeting than people who don't even visit them. Also it is hard to judge who interacts the most as a basis for promotion to the council as I feel it would turn into a popularity contest of a certain group of people rather than the best people in the jobs. Maybe you should interact with the leaders of sections if you have anything to say rather than relying on people to come and be your buddies on AIM
