My one gripe with using the word "official" here is that some people might take that the wrong way. But oh well. Don't want to bash you again Loopy, your bae ;3I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
On a completely tangent note, I will continue the tradition of Ere* starting up a political discussion by pointing out we haven't finalized the rules of the fc (look up the second post of this thread).
I guess let's start with what appears to be the current "unofficial" rules:
1.) All generals serve for 6 months, after which there will be re-elections.
1.) All members who have had the smiley icon for at least two weeks and have maintained an active status in the FC may vote for generals, and other matters concerning the fc.
2.) All voting is done publicly (ie. in this thread).
4.) Bans/kicks may be initiated if A. There is a complaint and a general decides that the complaint is valid, or B. There is a complaint and at least five other members support this.
5.) If someone is banned, they must wait for a period of at least 3 months before appealing. Banned individuals may request a hearing. They are permitted to leave several times regarding their availability and generals will decide which of those are the best option for the hearing.
3.) Real life issues, including politics and religion, are permitted topics of discussion. However, generals may decide on a case-by-case basis whether or not a conversation has gone too far and should react accordingly.
In other words, we only have three rules. Is everyone happy with this?I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.

Just some thoughts for rules: 1) We have to decide on whether or not a person can be banned, and under what circumstances. 2) Are we still keeping the rule that religion, politics etc is allowed? 3) Rules on inappropriate behavior and speech (which are hard to define, but yh...)I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
From this point forward, the following rules shall be enforced:
5. Political discussion is not allowed.
6. Religious discussion is not allowed.
7. Lethalintent can do whatever he wants.
8. Inappropriate language is not allowed.
9. Discussing ***, ****, murder, torture etc... is not allowed.
10. Aligned people will be prosecuted.
11. All people with questionable histories will be banned from the fc.
12. People who stalk others irl will be banned from the fc.
13. FC rules can change on a fly without a vote, because good reasons and stuff.
13. If someone feels uncomfortable about some conversation, the people engaging in the conversation must stop, or risk being banned.
14. People who pretend to be someone they are not will be banned.
15. People who scam others will be banned.
16. Dancers will be prosecuted. Those evil sinners.
Now, you might all argue that we can't agree on such rules without a vote. However! I think everyone agrees that these rules are good guidelines to follow. Therefore there is no need for a vote.I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.

Well, this is a silly poll. Although uni, you are incorrect. This *is* how things works. Every "official" poll in the past was initiated by one person just like that.I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
Unicornzápwnsaid: ErenáLapucetsaid: Well, this is a silly poll. Although uni, you are incorrect. This *is* how things works. Every "official" poll in the past was initiated by one person just like that. That's actually not how votes were done. Unless you are serious when you refer to this as a poll.
Anyone can post a poll, it just isn't binding in any way. How were polls done then?I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
Unicornzápwnsaid: "Keep the current gens we have now and no elections." Binds Dethal to he he's appointed now. The wording is misleading yes, but the third option is the current system, so no worries.I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
Policies include but are not limited to: 1) Abolishment of public voting system. Since we natural rulers know what's best. 2) Every 6 months all generals have to re-submit requests to renew their generalship, and other people who weren't general can request to be general as well. Only the ~10 most qualified in the following areas will be chosen by me: 1) Was in the fc for 6+ months 2) Is active in the fc 3) Is relatively uncontroversial 4) Does not have too many bad relations with other players 5) Talks maturely in the chat 6) Is considered honest/trustworthy. 3) Aligned people will be prosecuted. 4) Generals MUST behave professionally in the fc. So no talking **** about other factions, or talking about obscene things. 5) Politics and Religion will be banned. 6) Dancers will be prosecuted. 7) Kicks/Bans are decided by generals (to give them something else to do besides watch the chat for trolls). 3 generals are needed to kick a person, 7 are needed to ban a person. 8) Banned individuals may repeal every time generals are re-instituted by me. 9) Anyone who says any negative things about Ere*'s leadership will be permanently banned, as they are a danger to the stability of our great empire fc.I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.

Ascertessaid: Just for clarity's sake, when is this vote ending again? You don't need to know, silly commoner. It will end when it ends, and Dethal becomes the Grand Emperor.I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
Oh, I'm not blaming moderators for anything. But I don't really think mis-interpretting cause and effect wrongly. At the end of the day, even if person x was a deuce all along, they will have alt-attacked only after being kicked/ostracized.
Well... at least that's what history has shown. Maybe x person who is a deuce might alt-attack without being kicked/ostracized? Who knows.I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
Oh, I wasn't arguing about whether having moderators is a good idea or not My post was purely a response to Hazeel's argument in favor of generals because of alt-attacks.I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
Dethalsaid: Okay to make it clear, the chat will NOT be spoiler free for the upcoming quest.
If you don't want to talk about it, do the quest first and then join in to discuss it. ^^^
I've never understood why people complain about being spoiled about a quest in a lore fc. Either they haven't thought it through, or they incorrectly guessed we have a no-spoilers rule (which is never said/hinted anywhere, so the risk is on them).I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
Loads of people finish new quests on day 1 or 2, you want them not to talk about it in a lore fc? Look, don't get me wrong, some have a no spoiler policy (eg. The Scrying Pool sometimes). But 1) *Assuming* its the policy without good reason is your problem, and 2) It's not that big of a deal to avoid a fc for a day. When the Scrying Pool does it, they mute the cc, which is the equivalent of no one being in a chat.I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
In the hidden Temple of the Unaligned, Lord Ere* Lapuce* walks across the balcony of his person chamber. He is holding a glass of '07 vintage wine, and is wearing a very evil-looking cape.
"Those fools... little do they realize who the true mastermind is. I have deceived them until now with my little act, and no one yet suspects me. All I had to do was softly pull the strings, and watch the games play out to their inevitability. Now... it is the final stage... it is the quiet before the swarm, and I will strike once again shortly. All I must do is bring up the 'rules' as I have done many times before, and the chaos will again follow.
Soon... soon... the Unaligned will triumph!
Mwaahahahahhahahaha!"I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
Kanarthasissaid: -Yawn- Same FC drama, different day. Why can't you just play the game and like enjoy it or something. I'm bored of this, it's not even entertaining drama anymore. I mean there's more politics and crusades going on in here than the entire last 2000 years. ROFL.
As someone who uses the fc very frequency I can say that drama rarely happens in the fc.I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
To me, what made Dethal a good leader, in addition to the basics things like being uncontroversial and a nice guy, is his *lack* of involvement with fc politics. So I would prefer someone who isn't very political or faction minded. I think Nat/Sola fit this criteria the best.
I have zero interest in being a general, let alone the leader.I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.

I'd just like to add in my input that perma-bans shouldn't happen without the approval of generals and/or members of the fc. A single person shouldn't decide that on their own, even though we got rid of a formal voting system.I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
I don't play rs anymore, but I'm up for any sort of lore events of that sort, Rondstat. Unfortunately, if you might have noticed, no one cares for lore events, and this thread is dead, so it wouldn't be easy at all.
I would know since I tried in the past to get people into lore events, but wasn't successful. Could be that I wasn't charismatic enough, was a bad advertiser, or simply didn't have any great ideas, idk.I'm too Unaligned to have a forum signature.
