[AMP] PP Address - Lethargy? Not a chance! Feel the AMPs!

Day 2,052, 09:52 by Luis Nordmann


Hello fellow AMPs,

Today for a while I write you a PP address. My reduced capacities regarding internet and all that have been hurting me in terms of getting articles out and producing media, but everytime I have a chance to use someone else computer, I will try to get a piece out. Meanwhile I'd like to give my public thanks and gratitude to Artela for telling me exactly which iphone applications to use to make sure this works out and I can still do more stuff.




Congress elections - Revamping?




Well, I'm using the term revamping because there is something in discussion among the leadership and the party as a whole. As many of you recall from previous months, we have been using a system of primaries to elect our candidates for congress, this system is based on the premise that the Party President picks the first 6 priorities for congress and the rest is decided through a congressional primary held in our forums.

A new system is being suggested and this new system is basically giving the party the entire choice of who runs for congress. Basically there would be no granted seats given by the PP and all priorities would be voted in. We are designing the system in order to include 6th party candidates who wish to run under AMP and as usual, the system will keep the same requirements it has:

- Passing the security clearance to be on the ballot.
- Having a minimum of 80% in the congressional preparedness quiz.

Without this conditions, the candidate doesn't have the minimum necessary to be a quality candidate and won't be added to the ballot. We use this measures to exclude potential security threats and to train our congressmen the best we can so they don't commit mistakes during their terms.

You may find this discussion open to the party here: http://www.ampforums.info/forum/thread-226-post-4133.html#pid4133



POTUS elections




It is with great dismal that I announce the results of the AMP Primary, being the nominees Paul Proteus and John Largo. The results were as follows:

John Largo - 7
Paul Proteus - 5

While John Largo isn't actually running and he only accepted his nomination so we could have a vote, this clearly shows the state of lethargy around the party. Something that, being completely honest, worries me. It worries me the fact that only 11 people answered to this primary.

Now.. instead of pointing out the problems, it is time to try to point out solutions! One of the things I've been pushing the leadership to do, other than getting stronger Recruitment and stronger Retention, is really making things more simple. I've been consulting my security team in order to leave our PHP poll off-forum and hold our polls within the forum itself, I found some resistance there because otherwise we won't get enough data to actually check the votes, so instead I decided to hand blondeninja the autonomy to code something within the forum poll to make this feasible without risking security.



Security Database

Well, it is no secret that after what happened with AMP, we are locking down the house even more. Therefore the security department is building a database to include everything regarding each single AMP member registered in our forum and have a threat level associated. We are doing this so we can keep track better of who is good and who's not. As soon as this internal project is finished, the AMP, in cooperation with some Federalist officials will be creating a crossed database so we all have access to more intelligence regarding our enemies out there.

After what happened, we will not allow any more security threats. Be scared serbians, we will find you, we will destroy you and we will banish you from the very place you blown us up from within. Make my words clear: You will not PTO this party ever again!



Retention and Recruitment

Right now the AMP is looking for new players and fresh blood! If you want to join a party where friendship is the word that knits us together, then we are the place where you should be!

We have awards programs to give to the most dedicated AMP members!
We have free tanks programs to give to our active members in our forums!

We are also looking to assign a dedicated person to lead the new players around the party and show them who is everyone and what each party department does! Don't hesitate in contacting a member of the AMP leadership for anything you might need!




Legal Counsel



As many of you know, the former Party President John Killah decided to extinguish the AMP Legal Department. While we do have a current party constitution, me and an old former Legal Director named Brad Gwatney have been discussing the changes to perform in order to make this better and prevent PPs to keep changing the document into things more complicated.

Being blatantly honest, our current constitution is not very good. The old one I received when I was Legal Director when I was like 3 months old was way better conceived than this one and the purpose of it was to legitimately organize the party and have a set of rules. The idea is to create a new document simple and effective and that document will include a Legal council. The Legal Council will be in charge of keeping the constitution clean and stable and will be in charge of making sure the PPs apply and follow it. The Legal Council will have a term of 3 months and each member will rotate.

This project is still being drawn and will be better proposed soon, expect more news then when the final version is out!



Thank you and kind regards from your current AMP Acting President! I am also pleased to say that the leadership infights have ended and the old climate of friendship is coming back, but we gotta fight lethargy now!

"While John Largo isn't actually running and he only accepted his nomination so we could have a vote,..."

You are even faking the meta-game primaries! Well done!

Luis Nordmann
Luis Nordmann Day 2,052, 11:50

Lololol. Fail Logic is failed. Nomination --> Primary. Each nominee is free to accept his/her nomination whatever the reasons are. Largo accepted his and therefore got on AMP ballot, if he didn't, paul would be the only one on the ballot and he'd win by default. There's no such thing as a fake election, there were 2 nominees, obviously there would be an election. Lol learn to do party politics lololololol. Keep entertaining me!

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Day 2,052, 12:09

What's wrong with "winning by default"? Isn't that the essence of unity? ha ha ha ha

Luis Nordmann
Luis Nordmann Day 2,052, 12:20

Lol. You clearly miss your frontal lobe. Nothing WRONG with winning by default a primary, thing is: it was Largo's option to clearly accept his nomination. And no, unity is way more complex than your brain can figure out.

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Day 2,052, 12:25

Unity is crap. I am sure you are a master of dealing with it!

Luis Nordmann
Luis Nordmann Day 2,052, 12:44

Lol finally something we agree on. Yes, unity is a crappy system but unfortunately it's needed, it's easy to do the math. If you run two candidates instead of just one unity candidate and the vote splits between them, the AFA candidate (which should be the third on the ballot) wins POTUS. Now... you don't want to see eUS PTOed, do you?

It is a bit odd to see a highly complex legal system, security system, primary system and only 12 people voting. Maybe it isn't apathy but it does suggest that the overly complex works against retention and activity. I'm often mistaken.

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Day 2,052, 13:01

It's still a success for DLS as there are not even half of that active in his MU AF!

Luis Nordmann
Luis Nordmann Day 2,052, 13:09

Check the constitution... the MU is not mine, it's government property and I'd have to give it out to another Commander case I got fired/demoted.

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Day 2,052, 13:21

Well the you as VP could fire yourself as MU commander over the lack of competence.
Guys, you are not even able to organize a successful RW in Texas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

olivermellors
olivermellors Day 2,052, 13:07

Valiant Thor: You owe me 1 gold. Please pay, honour your undertakings and demonstrate you are honest.

BTW: you appear to be on a personal, vindictive and irrational vendetta against DLS. You are both acting childish in the extreme. A personal observation, onlly, which you may ignore without offence. Regards

Luis Nordmann
Luis Nordmann Day 2,052, 13:07

Not gonna contest that to be honest. We had a quite complicated constitution, we cut off laws and made it simpler, but it's still not enough. The vote system is quite complicated too, I've been forcing simplicity without taking out the security tools we need. As for the security system per se, nothing really complex about it, it's all about creating a database and checking people, we're improving the root and striking where we find the problems. Some things take time and you can't expect a party to raise suddenly after having a month under a PTO, we're doing our best though. If you feel like suggesting something olivermellors, feel free.

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Day 2,052, 13:18

The AFA didn't come into being by pure chance. They are the result of the rude elitist's gameplay, where any opposition is accused, flagged and blacklisted. It's natural that these disenfranchised players organised themselves into a party and it is obvious that the hate generated by the elitists breeds the hate coming towards them from the AFA members.
But I find it astounding how new players still buy this quasi-patriotic meta-crap you are so eager to sell.
And as if we don't have enough of lousy intelligence-monitoring dung, your personal paranoia is creating even more meta-laws and meta-agencies, just to make sure you stay in power.
If you would at least have any capabilities and were able to see further then the end of your nose one could at least forgive you for at least some of the stupidity that you keep coming up with.

Luis Nordmann
Luis Nordmann Day 2,052, 13:37

Sorry but I'll have to give you an history lesson. The AFA didn't start because of the elitists arrogance. The AFA started long ago and it wasn't known as the AFA back then, it had many names and many people, all PTOers. I suggest you have a look at the eUS forums post written by Cromstar (link: http://eusaforums.com/forum/index.php/topic,6714.0.html) telling the story of pthut (Ronald Gipper Reagan as you know him nowadays). He went through many parties seeking personal gain, his very ambition since he was an ebaby was to become POTUS. Now you'd probably ask: Is there anything wrong in wanting to become POTUS? No, there isn't, many people have that ambition and many work hard to get there, the problem of pthut was the way he sought for that ambition. He sold this country to the serbians in exchange for votes, he did that in the time of PHOENIX (this part might be inaccurate but I guess you can check from that post). The only reason new players join the AFA is because the AFA uses tricks to fool them in, they don't play clean. It's actually pretty easy to explain: gather a power maniac and give him followers and people who are with him by interest and you get the AFA, RLC whatever other name it had in the past.

Being honest with you, I have no idea what got you blacklisted by the FBI, it's beyond me and certainly not even under my control, but if you actually behaved respectfully, I could have looked it over. It's not standard procedure to blacklist people unless there is actually proof/reason for it. Now, we can continue with this or stop, as you chose because for me.. I had enough.

Syz2 Day 2,053, 13:32

What DLS said; it didn't start as a group of people not satisfied with whoever was running the government at that time. It started off with specific Serbian people such as Hanibal LA, Sidarta, etc. They ran a massive bribe campaign for members to get into the top 5, and then finally finalized their rise by appealing to the people who are "anti-establishment". This was what happened during my time in the game anyway.

But you share the same problem as the anti-establishment people do. You press too hard, you want sudden revolution, you do whatever it takes. And people pressing too hard makes them seem abrasive and rude, and pushed right back against. People need to realize that if you push hard against them, they will push right back. You just have to advance though hard work and lots of time.

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Day 2,053, 19:50

You are clearly missing the point. AFA is just a symbol of our society! No matter how it started, it is now a safe harbor for all that are harassed because of their opinion and a safe heaven for PTO forces. They are isolated by the establishment and a reaction to eUS politics. They are also a good excuse to run a non-democratic system through meta-gaming.
What we lack is a solution.
And for a solution there has to be a dialogue.

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Day 2,052, 13:52

It would be a good decision for you to stop, because you are not even getting my statements, only interpreting them in your own way.
It also is funny how you claim that you can "look it over" in the FBI. This is just another proof of how thes fake meta-agencies have their nets woven all across this nation and how a handful of individuals are controlling our society.

As for Cromstar: I'll just post again his statement from the eUS forum as a clear evidence that the game is corrupt to the bone, disregarding the institution of Congress!
- - - - - - - - - - - - -
Congress a) isn't trustworthy; it leaks like a seive and b) the SCI has access to all this information and is entirely staffed by Congressmembers. The exact details about our reserve levels and a lot of the information surrounding them is classified and withheld from the public and Congress as a whole.

Luis Nordmann
Luis Nordmann Day 2,052, 14:06

Actually no. Just because I have access to certain information it doesn't mean I controll the way it gets there. The FBI is the feds security department, as you can logically take, I have no control over it.

Second point, cromstar is probably the oldest player in our country and believe me, if there's someone i'd place my hands on the fire in terms of trustworthyness, that person is cromstar.

Everybody can know exactly how much money we got, look over for the Congressional Budget Office org. It's not really a classified information.

Valiant Thor
Valiant Thor Day 2,052, 14:14

As far as the reserve levels, the CBO does what congress wants. I have been instructed by SCI not to tell the amount/location of individual accounts holding money. There are some merits to that plan. If congress voted I suppose that would supercede my instructions by the SCI.

-Publius

Luis Nordmann
Luis Nordmann Day 2,053, 12:28

True because congress discusses and approves the budget, which is the main congress job other than approving CS for whoever IES tells them to or DHS. Also, most of the people holding money are part of the government and those lines are on each month's budgets. I believe (someone correct me if I'm wrong) the budgets used to be public until the AFA started to troll them and use them for their own political gain and to gain more followers.
