(Dismissed) WA Roleplay Guide Act

Post  Great Eurussia on Mon Jun 02, 2014 6:01 pm



WA ROLEPLAY GUIDE ACT
Authored by the Empire of Great Eurussia
Member of the WA Democratic Socialist Party
It is an open secret that the region is still divided on the adoption of the divide by ten rule for roleplaying purposes, however, other than the issue of explosive and huge statistics from the official NS Tracker of the WA are creating confusion on our RP scenarios. Hence, we under this proposal, such topic shall not be involved for the mean time as it has been addressed already by the WA Roleplaying Act, passed by WA Parliament.
Hence this proposal will tackle the one of the most contentious issues of our RP, the determination of the real counterpart of our RP age with the real world, and other certain divisions of our RP Age Periods.
Although we admit that this proposal is still open for debate, as we do welcome constructive proposals to further improve the law itself. And its main aim is to help the Forum Administrators and authorized Moderators in enforcing the officially sanctioned guide in doing our RP, which is yet to be enforce, as per this proposal.
-----------------------------------------------------

Section 1
This Act recognizes that the WA News Network has been divided accordingly, on various topics, primarily, the WA National News Network, the WA International News Network, the WA Future Tech News Network, and other particular topics or areas that covers certain ages or areas of roleplaying which are sanctioned by Forum Admins and authorized Moderators.
Section 2
This Act designates the WA National News Network as the sole thread for local news of nations and discourages reply or responses from other nations. And as such, must contain only Modern Age Contents.
Section 3
This Act designates the WA International News Network as the sole thread for international news of nations and encourages reply or responses from other nations. And as such, must only contain Modern Age Contents.
Section 4
This Act designates the WA Future Tech News Network as the sole thread for all kinds of futuristic news of nations and encourages reply or responses from other nations. And as such, must only contain Future Age Contents.
Section 5
This Act also discourages and doesn't tolerate the use of OOC (out-of-character) posts which are only reserved for Admins and Mods, and advices such nations to exchange OOC notes via TG (telegram) / PM (private message) so as not to clutter the thread with non-IC (in character) posts.
Section 6
This Act defines Modern Age Contents as those activities and technologies that represent today's modern world where roleplay containing such must show that the said activities and technologies are existing and utilized the same way as today's modern world and must not go beyond such activities and technologies. If there are images, such pictures must depict the existence of the said object in today's modern world, or if yet to exist, has been confirmed already to exist in an exact future time and not going beyond the next fifty real life years.
Section 7
This Act defines Future Age Contents as those activities and technologies may represent today's modern world or the future where roleplay containing such must show that the said activities and technologies may be existing and may be utilized the same way as today's modern world and may go beyond such activities and technologies, in a futuristic sense. If there are images, such pictures may depict the existence of the said object in today's modern world, or if yet to exist, may have been confirmed already to exist in an exact future time and may go beyond after the next fifty real life years.
-----------------------------------------------------

In anyway, please share your views and opinions, for the improvement of this proposal which will benefit all nations and states of the entire World Alliance.
QUESTION: How about Colonial Age News???
Thank you!

The definition of Modern Age Tech is too strict: indeed, it would block any kind of technological progress, even minimum, of any country.

It's no better enlarge a bit the definition of Modern Age? If we remain on your definition, we must say goodbye to the Nuclear Fusion, or to the Moon Bases, or to a lot of other things ... like the augmentation for human body

Eurussia, I was thinking, since me and Aloia are RP moderators, it would be good if we could be able to suspend nations from RP for misbehaviours in the RP as frequent godmodding and so on and taking back the suspension when we think the nation that got the punishment has understood the rules of RP, what do you think?

Personally, this act as a whole seems beneficial to setting concrete rules for the RP. The "Modern Age" doesn't seem too restrictive to me, as a "Future Tech News" section will be the designated home for such technologies. This clause makes this section very plastic:

If there are images, such pictures must depict the existence of the said object in today's modern world, or if yet to exist, has been confirmed already to exist in an exact future time and not going beyond the next fifty real life years.

Perhaps if a forum mod believes a post is out of line, he/she would PM the user (as public warnings aren't exactly relevant to everyone) asking for some sort of link to the source of an article. I favor Shirouma's idea, but this act would need to be amended on how long a suspension may last, specifically defines what is not permissible, etc.

The idea of "Colonial Age News" sounds interesting and could act as a counter to those interested in the Future Age.

I didn't notice that clause, thank Kaevi for underlining it.
With that one yes, it's more precise. However, there's still one little problem: how could it be decided what it will be feasible in fifty years?

This would be good. But before that suspension, we should have a three strike policy so that Forum Admins and RP Mods will not be accused of abusing powers.
Don't you think so?

Indeed, it is a bit sad, but the definition is already clear and represents the Modern Age Period exactly the way it should be. Since anyway, Forum Admins & RP Mods are enforcing this nowadays to correct things up.

What shall I do with that provision? I don't know :-/

Also, how could we define the Colonial Age Contents for the Colonial News Network? There are nations who also TG me that they like this idea so that we could have the mix of past, present, and future world!!

Sounds good, what should we see as a violation of RP rules?

If we think as Forum Admin and RP Mods that a news is improper according to this law, then we could simply issue a first warning, second warning, and so on.
Then the defending nation must defend his post via TG/PM and not in the threads themselves.
What do you think? This is just to make sure things are in their proper order.

So, in few words, what we need its a guideline for the moderator, that can send warnings about a particular tech or something else?
Also, for colonial age, do you intend the XIX century or what? ^^

I am thinking that I should be able to give warnings for things like for example not following the divide by 10 rule, godmodding, total ridicilousness and posts that just don't make sense at all.

lol yeah indeed. But can you come up with at least a well thought provision on that matter to be added on the law? I willl just fine tune it on the proposal.
With these guide I do believe that there will be consistencies on our RP implementation.

ABSOLUTELY. I got this from some website:
Having abilities the character shouldn't have based on the RP's setting or emphasizing their abilities above and beyond what is realistic for the RP's setting.

There is no problem with that. Since you and Ireland has already invoked the extension. I believe Speaker?

Indeed. I think there is also a definition from NationStates on this but do you think we should have a good definition based on our own understanding????
