Today's article will be my internal manifesto, my external manifesto can be found here. Unfortunately, there will be a gap in count von count tomorrow but he’ll be making a return on the 4th along with my cabinet list and summary points as well as a response to some comments on my previous manifesto.
The Vice Country President and a war update:
Personally, I like the current 2 vCP option. It allows two different people to work in the areas they are best in. I think that it has worked quite well, Madacaion has been working on updating the wiki and I hope that he continues this work into the future! I’m happy for whomever my vCPs end up as to do their own work, as long as they are working then I am happy.
In addition, part of my work as external affairs vCP I contacted the Belgian CP and vCP (who is running for eBelgium CP) and arranged a short meeting concerning a training war. They have agreed that a TW is definitely something we can do, if I am elected this war will begin on the 6th of December! I hope that some of you are happy that war is sorted for next month.
The Ministry of Legislative Affairs and The Ministry of Health:
There isn’t much that is possible to change here. In terms of the MoH, all I can say is keep on donating! Carlini has agreed to look over the finances of the MoH and produce some v nice statistics for those that donate. I reckon that anyone willing to donate food towards the NHS should be able to see exactly what their donation has done for the eUK, wouldn’t it be awesome to say that you funded the NHS for a few days?
The MoLA has little that it can do currently, it just makes sure that legislation is passed in the correct manner and that the citizenship committee is working. I’d like a the MoLA to start running a formal policy debate each week, with party representatives debating a specific topic over IRC (with addition of general questions from anyone towards the end, non-IRC goers can PM the MoLA ingame to submit their own questions) and the MoLA writing up an article with the debate logs in and each party's point of view on the subject. If we are properly discussing these topics and not just mud flinging at each other we can work towards a better eUK!
The Ministry of Education and The Ministry of Finance:
These are both ministries that have done good work this month. Carlini, as ever, has done a fantastic job as the MoF and Betafoxtrot has worked well as the MoE. One thing that does concern me about the MoF however, is that we don’t have a big variety of MoF candidates; trusted players that know their way around the financial system and are IRC active. As such Carlini has agreed with me to mentor a newer player in the ways of the MoF, with Carlini keeping the keys to the reserves and doing the monetary market work of course.
The MoE has been working hard recently but again there have been a few too little candidates, I urge anyone interested to apply! I think that the current level of work by the MoE is an acceptable amount but that more can be done to improve on it. I’d like to see some more ingame games sorted out for this role, something that BigAnt asked Talon on the podcast (don’t you just love plugs?); Madacaion has agreed to set up a Mafia/Werewolves game. Another change is that there needs to be additional advertising on the MoH to get more people on it and possibly for MUs as well (the MoD will do this in its articles as well). Getting newer players involved in MUs is a good way to increase retention, as they become involved in the MU community and start to make new friends, and this is key part of the MoEs role.
How to become a minister:
Step 1: Send me a PM with information about yourself (a brief bit on you, what ministry you want to apply for, what experience you have and how IRC active you are/willing to be)
Step 2: Wait for a reply, I’ll try and reply to most if not all of them, I may want to ask you another couple of questions or want to arrange a meeting on IRC.
Step 3: ???
Step 4: Become minister.
The current positions I am looking for are:
1 x vice Country President
2 x Minister of Defense
1 x Minister of Education
1 x Minister of Finance
1 x Minister of Health
1 x Minister of Legislative Affairs
2 x Minister of Foreign Affairs
Two announcements for the price of one!
Pre-manifesto jargon control and a podcast
