Reply with quote

After discussion with CMAC and Alex, we're going to try spearheading a new initiative to both let players have a better say in things and to get more involved plots.

We're henceforth going to have a player-staffed committee called the Elected Committee for Plots. Since we like acronyms around here, it can also be called ECP (not to be confused with EPP/ECP).

What is this committee going to do and how is it going to be formed? Well, I'll try to explain.


  1. People may give "testimonials" about other players who they think should be on the next nominees list. CMAC will consider these testimonials when selecting nominees. (but this doesn't guarantee nomination). Give them here.
  2. Every quarter of the year, CMAC will pick eligible nominees (this may change by next quarter; we're doing it this way now so we can get a committee together fast).
  3. From these nominees, if they choose to accept, each player of the game has a right to vote for three of the nominees he/she wishes.
  4. In the end, the three candidates with the highest votes will come onto the ECP.


Some clarification for this section:
Quarters: Q1 is January 1st-March 31st, Q2 is April 1st-June 30th, Q3 is July 1st-September 30th, Q4 is October 1st to December 31st
Eligible nominees: It's CMAC's choice (at least for this first round) who is eligable, but it can't be anyone who is banned or inactive. Other terms may apply.


  1. The newly elected committee elects a leader for their first plot. This leader will serve as a direct representative to CMAC in developing the plot.
  2. After the committee leader posts some details of their preliminary plot. At this point, people who want to participate can submit their characters (more details on this later).
  3. The ECP will continue to develop the plot, working in these characters, with CMAC monitoring progress to prevent any godmodding or unfair treatment of characters.
  4. After the plot is ready for release, it will begin


Now, this later process can continue for as long as the contemporary ECP is in "office." So, they can produce as many plots as they can, and people can join them as they feel their characters should participate. When their term is up, they will complete their plot and the next ECP will begin to plan another plot.

We already have nominees selected and we'll be contacting them soon.

I hope you're as excited about this as CMAC is. :D

I've noticed that July is mysteriously absent from this list. Is that a break month or has it just been overlooked?

Also, I was going mention July not being there but I didn't think it would look good being the first reply in the thread. :)

Will this... commitee, be in place to regulate individual's plots? I have several in mind that I don't regulated by outsiders.

I think it's for coming up with a big plot that lots of people can get involved in if they choose to. Like the Galaxy Ball, or the Cruise, or the Pirate Thing.

Absolutely not. It only designs plots in which you may voluntarily participate.

The votes are in, and after a tie-breaker session by CMAC, Rory , Alexus, and Alex are the winners.

May the Force have mercy on us. :p

Three way tie, correct? What was the tiebreaker all about, and what about the other two people?

No. At the end of the vote (a week after I posted the thread in OT), Alexus had a one-vote advantage over Jax and Kal, who were tied. The only reason they're all at 9 now is because I didn't take the time to close the poll after its stop-date. We broke the tie between Jax and Kal and chose Jax because Kal already has a position on the board. Alex occupied the third position, which he is getting this round automatically, since he had a hand in designing the idea.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that voted for me. After much consideration, I have developed the following speech.

POWAH! UNLIMITED POWAH!!!!!!


That is all.

Hey, I quoted. Leave me alone. Never did I say it was unique, original, or even mine.

Besides, now I have every legitimate excuse to not let you within reaching distance of my triplets. Sucks to be you. And not in the good way.

Well done to all. Also, can ECP members be re elected next time round or are they ineligable at the next round?

Yes.

Although I would like to remind everyone that YOU can also create a plotline. If this committee is unable to provide the excitement, the drama, or w/e you desire, you are never limited to create something original and unique that can apply to many players. This has also been our right as a community, my only advice is to keep all of CMAC updated...constantly. It's better to send them a long essay of what's happening versus 'seeing if they stop you'.

Congrats to Rory and Alexus, it'll be a pleasure to serve with both of you and I look forward to creating some exciting chapters in the Star Wars Episode VIII: Binds of Tyranny [An AU Role Playing Experience].

:D

Just a note, ECP has become a recursive acronym for Elected Plot Committee, because we're too lazy to type the full name and yet we like the acronym "ECP." :p
