    Welcome to the Information Office. This office organizes volunteers to provide the citizens with the information they need to participate in our democracy and the underlying game. The actual information will be in various other places, such as the Welcome and FAQ, Screenshots, Play Session Summaries, and official threads.

    Citizens with information requests can post them here.

    Here are a couple of posts which prompted me to start this office. We should consider them our first requests for information.

    (in a thread about a RPG)

    Anyone available to make some visual representations of how the DG flows? :D

    A better explanation of the RPG can be found here.

    I'm working on compiling the initiatives in an organized form (which will look a little more like the CoL used last demogame.)

    That's a good way of pulling together the rules. Now we need something that describes a Decision - Play Session cycle.

    Inputs: Previous session save, summary, screenshots, ongoing discussions

    Process:
    1. People review save, summary, ongoing process.
    2. Discussions are held on actions to be taken in next play session.
    3. Polls are run to make important and/or contested decisions.
    4. Officials and citizens post instructions for next play session.
    5. DP plays the session using instructions.
    Outputs: Intermediate and ending saves, play summary, screenshots.

    There's the process document form of how it works, but what we need is a more user-friendly form of the same information. Anyone up to making it kinder and gentler? :)
