[New Era] Writing a Constitution - Part I

Dia 1,901, 05:23 por Goku Jones

New Era has been built out of nothing with a message of freedom, fairness and just playing the game.

This is a popular message. Lots of people have seen the corruption in past governments, high profile players and on websites outside of the actual game. New players don't understand why there is so much baggage with in jokes, people you have to agree with for some reason and having to go to a different website to play this game.

This is the hardest way to build a party. Building from nothing you have few active players to write articles, organise elections, make policies and make them work in Government. The other parties have a history going back years or are splinter parties from those groups.

New Era is a popular party with many members which wins elections, but we have few active members to run it.

We did two things to get those active members:
1) Build up new players through their articles.
2) Recruit from other parties (NOT through PMs, by doing a good job).
It has worked but now these new active players expect a little more from New Era.

With some members of New Era stepping back after a campaign of trolling from some of those corrupt players exploiting their passion for a better UK, some have panicked because there are no set ways to make decisions as a group and they have no main leader.

If you have a party based on freedom and sticking to game mechanics then you will end up with few rules to guide you. New Era has always been like this and we always do ridiculously well in elections, do not panic.

This is now our opportunity to take New Era to the next level. This is YOUR opportunity to take a position of leadership and decide what happens next.

You will see a few ideas in the media over the next few days for a "New Era Constitution" until we find a good method to have a vote within the party. We need this to manage our new crop of active players but we mustn't just copy other parties, it has to follow the free spirit of New Era.

I was going to post my ideas but I will leave that until later as the article will be too long, I have many and in detail! Until then please discuss your ideas and what you want from New Era, this is where you build a major UK party to the next level.

If you are reading this and you are not in New Era, why should you join?

New Era is developing its members, not its leadership.

New Era is representing players who play the game, from the game.

New Era is experimenting with new methods and concepts, without fear.

We won't exploit you for votes, we will share with you what we have and you will share with us your new ideas. We don't just say this, we do it. Our Congress is full of new players, players from other smaller parties and we have tons of giveaways:

PM me to get this when you join New Era.

Watch out for these in weekly articles, comment to get supplied.

PM me if you take or want one of my jobs for a raise. This may be reduced soon with wages and gold prices dropping, but it will always be above the top paid job on the Job Market.

We have more from our members in articles and the party shout bar most days!

Get in touch at #NewEra and #BulldogsHQ on Rizon IRC, Comment or send me a PM.

- Sage Goku, New Era Congressman.

2) Recruit from other parties.

O rly nao?

FightAndProduce: Every party will try to recruit people from other parties, it's only natural..

Danie Fox
Danie Fox Dia 1,901, 15:03

Interesting to see if you ever elect a new player as PP. For the last 6 months you have been led by 2 players born in early 2009.

FightAndProduce Dia 1,901, 15:11

I consider it dishonorable,but then again,there's no honor in politics!

Goku Jones
Goku Jones Dia 1,901, 15:29

F&P: By that I mean just do a good job and hope that older active players join from other parties, which has happened. You can't get active members via a mass PM. WRP has some players older than the party, where did they come from!

DanieFox: Unless they show outstanding activity and ideas I don't think that a new player should be PP, you just don't know how much of the game they have learned, how competant they are and how likely they are to stick around. Most people like to lurk a bit anyway.

I remember when a 3 day old player won the UKRP elections once and quit the game a day or two after! You can also see the decline of TUP under TheEqualist and Bohemond4, feel free to have that as your unique selling point because it is destroying you.

Voted and subbed, nice article.

jamesw Dia 1,901, 18:39

ESO's best months happened under new players such as the grump, lily summers, gambit8 and even Bigant for a while. I'd say you're hugely mistaken, and as you haven't been lead by new players yet, are in no position to decide whether they should or should not lead you

Amerikax Dia 1,901, 21:22

I want one of these x40 jobs.

Orinocco Dia 1,902, 23:52

Still buying players with cash and not with good policies. New Era the party that wants you to prostitute yourself.

bananaboy378 Dia 1,902, 02:07

meh, new era is te worst at what it strives to eliminate.

Goku Jones
Goku Jones Dia 1,902, 03:18

Some new players (I'm talking about weeks of playtime here) prove themselves very quickly and should be PP. I was one of them. In the vast majority of cases it doesn't work though, maybe ESO was lucky - TUP are not.

New Era certaintly has that opportunity for people to prove themselves, it's just my personal opinion not party policy.


I like people disagreeing with me as long as it is constructive Minecrafting, but people such as yourself grow a cult of personaility around them where disagreement is not welcome.

When you ran for CP, at least the first two times you banned people from IRC+Forusm for critising you. You thought that anything negative about you MUST be trolling because OBVIOUSLY you are such a good player. You lost.

jamesw Dia 1,902, 05:34

Those in glass houses..... The amount of times that I have been called a troll for criticising is over 9001, not just you, or NE, but also TUP, Mr Appleface, everyone at some point has done it. The point is, electing new players is not about luck, its about trust - if you give people the chance to shine, and support them should they need help, then they will prove just as competent as an older player: indeed a fresh perspective on things would actually do a world of good for any party.

Goku Jones
Goku Jones Dia 1,902, 05:43

How many terms have you been PP of ESO Jamesw and why did you feel the need to take over? I see that you started the game in 2009.

Glass houses indeed.

Danie Fox

"Unless they show outstanding activity and ideas I don't think that a new player should be PP, you just don't know how much of the game they have learned, how competant they are and how likely they are to stick around. "

You are clearly putting your party above the country then, given your congress policy of penalising experience when selecting who to run.

AdmiralNelson Dia 1,902, 07:06

you trolls should stfu over 120 ppl have alredy voted gpkus article so shows we have the uk behind us.we have the stronegst policys of all the uk and its clear your just jelous

Sir Humphrey Appleby
Sir Humphrey Appleby Dia 1,902, 07:11

so if I made an article declaring Goku a whale and bought 600 votes for it, I'd have an even bigger mandate?

= P

Goku Jones
Goku Jones Dia 1,902, 07:21

Danie: New Era is about experimenting. We tried 100% newbie congress and while it increased party activity it did make Congress harder to coordinate. It will need to be modified in future and yeah doing the exact opposite could be an option but I'm sure we can find a middle ground.

Hilariously almost every single other party copied us which made Congress a nightmare!

Attack attack attack, it's all you guys know.

Blue And Evil
Blue And Evil Dia 1,902, 07:37

@AlottaFuntz: You're probably unaware of the voter club, which allows you to buy votes for articles with CC.

100 votes were bought for this article.

jamesw Dia 1,902, 08:25

I stood because no-one else would, ESOs inactivity at the time was hardly a secret. I'm hopeful ill be able to handover to someone newer this term, if not then ill keep going as log as no-one wants to do it. There's a difference between runnig against new players, and running against people who just candidate to further the evil dogfarts agenda!

Elle Roslin
Elle Roslin Dia 1,902, 08:39

I do hope the constitution will include an official policy against vote buying, it really is tiresome...

Take a page from Hugh - his articles get votes naturally because they are well-written.

Ziltoid16 Dia 1,902, 10:03

On "2) Recruit from other parties."

@Lauren Taylor-"FightAndProduce: Every party will try to recruit people from other parties, it's only natural.."

It is against UKRP recruitment guidelines to attempt to recruit someone who is already a member of a Party, so not every party does it.

Goku Jones
Goku Jones Dia 1,902, 10:17

UKRP has members who came from other parties.

Kravenn Dia 1,902, 10:18

I never send PM to recruit to a guy who on another party. It can happen that it's arrive and in that case, I send an apology to this guy (my mistake to not remove him from the list)

It isn't a TUP policy to recruit someone from another party

Danie Fox
Danie Fox Dia 1,902, 10:33

If you hadn't bought all these votes for your article I wouldn't even have commented. If you are going to be so arrogant as to think everyone in the UK wants to read your manifesto then people are going to react negatively to you.

Sven Goran Duran-Duran
Sven Goran Duran-Duran Dia 1,902, 10:44

voted, good article

FightAndProduce Dia 1,902, 11:08

Theres a difference of people from other parties coming of their own will and being messaged asking them to join.

Goku Jones
Goku Jones Dia 1,902, 12:33

Yes. I was talkng about people coming of their own free will. We haven't messaged anyone. I updated the article to make it clear. Stop complaining about that now please.

WayneKerr Dia 1,902, 14:12

'we have the stronegst policys of all the uk and its clear your just jelous'

Alottafuntz, you have no policies. At the moment you have a load of buzzwords, I for one look forward to seeing what NE come up with.

James Scarlet
James Scarlet Dia 1,902, 15:00

I was the one who first suggested this idea. It's in BOTH of my New Era PP election articles.

Goku Jones
Goku Jones Dia 1,902, 15:04

Yes, well done James Scarlet. I see that all the other parties have also copied your idea. We should all give you credit!

AtomicMau5 Dia 1,902, 16:52

Nice to see you busy with writing good things, maybe I'll even contribute in the future.

jamesw Dia 1,902, 22:24

Copied? As far as I know only ESO has a constitution, which you yourself gave feedback on and input over 2 years ago! If you would like a copy of ours to see what its look, its available on the wiki, although by the 15th we should have passed a fee changes

Goku Jones
Goku Jones Dia 1,903, 10:31

Yes that's the joke jamesw. UKPP have one, as does OV I think and UKRP have... something.
