TheMeInTeam 4. remake20 5. SilentConfusion 6. nabaxo 7. Lord Civius Mission Statement This team's vision will be pure Democracy. Polls and debate will be the backbone of this team. The focus of the team will be maximum participation and maximum fun. All other goals will be secondary. What will this team be like? We will have polls often and run our nation by majority rule. Our tech choices and our city locations will always be polled and anyone will be able to call for polls on any disputed issue, so there will almost always be something to vote on. Turnplayers Anyone can play the turn. As long as the team approves, we will make a list of who wants to play turns and how many turns they want to play. Then we will simply take turns, with each member of the team who wishes to play, taking a few turns, then passing the responsibility to whomever is next on the list. AMAZONs playing the turn will be expected to follow the wishes of the team on any issue where teammates have made their wishes known, and use their best judgment on other decisions. There will be at least one default turnplayer so that the turn always gets played if the person who's turn it is is not available. We can elect the default turnplayer by poll. If necessary, we can also change our turnplayer rules by poll. We will make a list of things that we need in our turn log so that turnplayers know what to do when taking turns. If a turnplayer does not know how to do something (like taking screenshots or writing narratives) the default turnplayer can do it for them. Not being able to take screenshots or write naratives will not prevent anyone from being able to play turns. Officers Once our team is formed, we will use polls to elect officers as needed. For example, when we meet other teams, we can elect a Diplomat who will have control over how our team communicates with other teams (email, instant-messaging etc.). If we go to war, we can elect a General who will have control over how our civ conducts the war (builds, attacks, defense etc.). We can vote on the particular powers of an officer by poll. As a default, turnplayers will handle things, but anyone can volunteer to fill an office on our team. If mutiple people want to fill an office, we can have poll/election. -------- Officer - Captain We can elect a Captain who will be responsible for moderating team disputes, including poll related disputes (like the legitimacy of a poll). Everyone should respect their fellow AMAZONs, and try not to name-call, insult or be condescending towards teammates especially their teammates ideas/suggestions/questions. Although tempers and passions may flare at times (especially on a team that polls frequently), the Captain will be responsible for keeping the threads on-topic, respectful, productive, and generally for keeping the team running smoothly. The Captain (or some other elected Officer) will have tie-breaking power on closed, tied polls. City Governors Anyone on the team can ask to be elected Governor of a city. If someone asks to be a Governor we will have a poll on whether we want the person to be the governor of that particular city. City Governors will have more control over the builds, micromanagement etc., of particular city (like a state or province) and (possibly) units that the city produces. Our team will decide by poll, how much control Governors get, and we will be able to vote to limit (or expand) the power of city Governors by poll. Team Pitboss Game We can have a team Pitboss game running right as soon as the team is formed so that people can learn how to play turns. We can also have multiple pitboss games going at once, so that no one is left out of the pitboss experience (even late joiners to the team) and also so that we can play different versions (BTS, Vanilla, Mods, etc.). Not everyone has BTS afterall Role Playing Role playing is welcomed and we willl try to add a strong role playing element to our diplomacy. AMAZON themed Avatars are welcomed! (but not required) We will decide as a team by poll what sort of themed-names we want for our Officers, Cities, Units etc., although we will not need to poll every Unit or City name. We can simply vote on a theme, which the turnplayers can follow. Finally, we can poll on a final name/theme for our team. We do not have to be AMAZONs if the team wants somthing else... Above all remember, MAJORITY RULES on this Team! Silence, or non-participation will be treated as consent with whatever actions are being taken by the team.
