Party Ambassadors - Ridiculous or not?

Day 1,892, 08:54 Published in United Kingdom United Kingdom by FightAndProduce

Browsing eRepublik,I had an idea on how to help issues between parties.
It may sound ridiculous to a sane person,such as any person who reads this article.But to me,it sounds like a good idea.
The idea is very rough,so if you have any suggestions for it,please say in the description.
Each party would have ambassadors to other parties,e.g UKPP having a ambassador for New Era.
It may sound like something a leader of the party could do,but giving ambassador positions in your party would have it's advantages.

1. Better party relations

Being a ambassador for your party could help you be friends with another party,there are many ways you can do this,by befriending members of the party,by releasing interviews with people in other political parties in newspaper articles.I'm sure there's more,but I just don't know them at this specific moment.
Positive interaction between parties,even if they are bitter rivals,may help the conflict between them.It may not always work.But it would help inter-party relations as I call it,no one really seems to call it inter-party relations apart from myself really.

2. Encouragement to get involved

People may want to be involved in politics,but may not want a congress seat or CP,PP etc. But this position offers a chance for people who may not be well experienced with our political module,and may give them the confidence needed to try and get involved in politics.This empowers the member,something which all parties (I hope) want to achieve.

3. Less political bickering

Almost everyone hates it,so if we can make politics friendlier and not as mean,I think this would also help people into politics,especially if they are new.If there's parties arguing all over the place,I know I wouldn't want to get involved.Hopefully the political bickering can stop,or at least be reduced.

4. Getting to know neutral parties

I think this would also help bridge the gap between neutral parties.Let's say for an example,the UKRP are neutral to The Worker's Rights Party (Not saying they are or aren't,it's an example) Ambassadors from each party could help them to get to know each others parties.

Thanks for reading,this turned into a quick idea I had in my head to about 15-20 minutes of writing.As said at the start,if you have any suggestions for this idea,please say so in the comments below.

For larger parties I think it would be a great idea to hopefully restore a bit of peace. But with smaller parties like GBDP and WRP, we have 10 active players each so would be hard to get enough ambassadors for all parties if some members aren't interested.

FightAndProduce Day 1,892, 09:02

Good point,It will be difficult for small parties to do this due to the amount of parties.

FightAndProduce Day 1,892, 09:07

In smaller parties,we could have one person responsible for trying to connect to the rest of the parties.It may make it a harder job.But it won't be difficult at all,just keeping in contact with the opposite ambassador,making new friends and maybe even releasing a article every week.

I believe that this idea is great, there is little or no cooperation between the parties unless we are at a time of war and I for one shall try to implement this idea into my party, thank you, voted : )

It's a nice idea and could be something worth considering for the top 6-7 parties. However many parties do already have fairly strong informal links between them through friendships and may not need a formal ambassador as such.

In reality it would cause a lot of bitching over comments in the party feed as the feed would no longer be contained to players within your party

It would be nice to see more co-operation between parties for the good of the nation, and this might be one way to work towards that. Voted.

Good idea, I think it should be implemented. Surprised nobody wrote about this earlier.

PPs, the gauntlet is down. Answers on a postcard please.

as a matter of fact, ESO has beta as ambassador of TUP ( or the other way round). Great idea, supported.

One thing I learned is that they want to bicker, so you are just increasing the number of places where that can happen. Best to instead cut off contact and battle it out on election day.

great idea!

Jimbobfrey Day 1,894, 06:00

Excellent idea! This would be great for organising events and to get messages across quickly.

Also, wouldn't it be great to get new players involved? Player retention! All parties should get involved in this.
