    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 am all about the amorphous

    And i'm banking someone else has more direct experience with how this sort of thing works

    I'd mine the "real" simulation 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.

    I'm in. As long as I get the veto power, I'll be happy. [face_devil]

    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?

    Are any of those US-backed 'anti-communist' puppet dictatorships in the U.N.? I'll take one of those.;)
