Organisation of Worldbuilding Forums

Recommended Posts

Hey team,

Issue

Recently I took some time to split our OOC forums from the IC ones.

This was announced and implemented earlier this months.

http://www.europans.com/topic/4740-a-brief-reorganisation/

I hope it helped bring some clarity to our OOC forums.

Proposal

Now I would like to do the same for our IC forums.

I have been contemplating the following organisation.

It is based on an easy structure of ABC.

  1. Affairs: what is now "World Today"
  2. Business: everything that is trade related
  3. Conflict: whenever military actions are involved
  4. Debate: includes all international organisations
  5. Entertainment: culture, sports, music, etc.
  6. Future & Past: same as before, but now starts with "F", to keep it ABCDEF

Here is a visual representation of the changes I have in mind.

I would like to hear what you think about this.

Thanks!

Hello moderation crew. I was wondering if by now you had any specific comments or feedback about this ABC-structure.

No feedback in a month probably means you all agree. I'm moving this out in the open for further feedback.

Looks great @Orioni

Much more of a logical approach, it kind of aligns it with Discord.

Thank you @Adaptus. I will give this another 48 hours for comments before moving ahead with the reorganisation. This task has been on my list for far too long, and I want to finally cross it off.

Alrighty. Time's up. Plenty of reminders, here and on Discord. Not a single voice against. I'm making the necessary changes.

Edit: Already done. That was quick.

I have renamed Debate to Diplomacy and will move topics into the forum. So this area will no longer be just a holding place for alliance subforums.

Moderators are invited to review the existing Affairs and Conflict forums for topics to move. This should keep everything nice and tidy. When moving, please enable the automatically disappearing move link.

I've got a question -- what is the difference between an "affairs" topic and a "diplomacy" topic? Does diplomacy really only relate to multilateral or specific purpose talks, whereas affairs would be more for more general meetings and the like?

How I've seen affairs - I'd consider them more domestic in nature but that's just my interpretation.

@Rihan As mentioned on Discord, just looking at this schema brought some potential improvements forward.

  • Especially Entertainment is really doing nothing, dangling there at the end. It would be easier to just rename it to Culture again. That's broader and can contain the 'Capital of Culture' thingy that's being developed.
  • And then Conflict would have to be renamed, to stick with the ABCDEF system. There are a couple of synonyms for War that start with the letter E, notable:

You and I have discussed this over Discord so you know my opinion on this - let's see what others think for a few days before making any changes.

Seven days seems like a fair amount of time for comment. I will wait another 24 hours before moving ahead with this.

So as they say in wedding ceremonies: "Speak now... or forever hold your peace."

Engagement is too specific, in my view, as not everything in there is just a military engagement. I'd suggest Enmity if necessary, though I also dislike that. Frankly, I can't help but think we should just have two Cs, or find another term for culture.

We could also do a three-part change. Business could become economy, conflict could become bloodshed (or battle, though I prefer bloodshed), and then entertainment could become culture.

That might actually work Faramount, what do you think @Orioni?

    • Samura Heavy Industries was the very first Keiretsu to come into existence, founded in 1872 by Masamune Samura. He had a very close relationship with the reigning Emperor who entrusted him in developing Kipan's industrial capacity by using the technological advancements in manufacturing and resource extraction that were flowing into the islands due to the Udo Transformation. In short order, Samura raised a vast industrial empire. The corporation has maintained its firm grip over a huge swath of the economy for generations and has no intention of letting up. Samura has an 'understanding' with the Hogosha ('protectors'), a quasi-legitimate organization who provide brute muscle and guard Samura's assets. Although it's at the top of the "Big Ten," they are very aware of the Sato Corporation's rapid growth. Over much of its history, Samura has been a predominant supplier to the military, alongside their closest business ally, Obata. The industries Samura focuses on include chemicals, mining & metallurgy, steel production, forestry, oil & petrochemicals, concrete, construction, shipbuilding, timber & paper products, power plants, arms manufacturing, aviation, machinery, glass, and aluminum.

    • The Sato Corporation is one of Kipan's large, vertical group of enterprises, or keiretsu, owned by the beautiful and intelligent Asami Sato. Amongst the various business empires, Sato is the youngest of the "Big Ten" keiretsus, and while it is not nearly as expansive as Samura Heavy Industries, Sato is rapidly growing both in market share and political power - a combination the other nine wish to impede at all costs. The company originally started as an automotive manufacturer, constructing cars that were practical and affordable for the common man. Millions of cars on Kipan's roads can be traced back to Sato's assembly lines. Though automobiles remains a core product of the Corporation, under Asami, the Sato Corporation has seen tremendous growth in the length and breadth of businesses it is involved in. This includes real estate, cosmetics & fragrances, department stores, hotels, textiles, advertising, cameras, optics & imaging, a range of day-to-day household and consumer products, supermarkets, telecommunications, and rubber products. And the list keeps growing. Sato has their own racing team with the car driven by the CEO no less.
