    OK, I freely admit to liking the idea but otherwise having no experience with model UNs.

    Can anyone show me workable systems for it?

    Basically I want to see your ideas of how it might work.

    As for signups; I'm looking at preferences but in the end, I'd like to make the call myself as to who you get. I say this because I forsee a lot of "I liek want 2 b America or England lolz! [face_flag]" requests and I'm a bastard.

    I'm keen on people playing in character; as in how their state would respond in reality, and not in capitulation to the Western liberal ideas. How can we encourage it?

    Would you also trust my judgment to promote a UN "Sec-Gen/Chairperson" from the pool of Senate users to oversee the debate? I could do it but I'd like to trust people here to do it. I'll see what I can sort out for titles; but colours would have to be UN blue-and-white. :p

    Ideas, people, ideas!

    :D

    "This", however, is amorphous at the moment. We need shape! Sculptors to turn this clay into something tangible! Metaphor! Similie!

    I'd mine the [link=http://www.unol.org/welcome.html]"real" simulation[/link] for procedures. Whatever they do, we can obviously do better, albeit with far fewer people who know considerably less about everything. ;)

    That link made me laugh. A world without violence. [face_laugh]

    I did an online simulation of the US House, but most of the rules were already in place and I don't know nearly enough about the UN to try and make some.

    I'd be interested in participating but, like everyone else so far, I've never done a model UN. :(

    I would be interested if not for the fact E_S would make me Sec. General out of pure irony.
    Then I'd explode.

    Shouldn't we hold elections or something if we're trying to make it somewhat 'realistic'.

    I want to be 'Representative of some tiny African nation that has no voice in the UN'. That would be a sweet title.

    Since we're trying to be close to the real thing, does that mean the U.S. doesn't have to follow any of the rules?
