    I was annoyed, and let him back in shortly after.

    The only word I can think of here, is hunger. Your hunger to obtain what little power I have.

    You shouldn't have that power.

    Noone wants your power! They want noone to have it because it is not needed, nor wanted! You've used it for stupid reasons, and it's time to stop!

    How about this? Lock this thread and we make a fresh start. Brand new list and everything?

    Not until the three are out of power and we have a new constitution. We need to finish up matters before starting over.

    Apparently not! [face_laugh]

    OK where to start? The overall problem here in the Senate, as I see it, is that the rules were ultimately not established well enough. This led to a situation where, when Zedd-Vega left, others were able to just come in and take up the thread. Now why no one said anything at the time is beyond me. However, once the "big three" were in charge of the thread, they handled it poorly, in my opinion. I read many pages of both threads and saw a lot of creating rules on the fly, something which NEVER ends up well. I also saw a lot of petty behaviour, power hungry attitudes and acting without thinking. I saw people kicked out because they didn't play by the rules when the "big three" were making up rules as they went along. In order for a thread like this to work, detailed rules must be agreed on and posted in the first post of the thread. This is critical. By the nature of this particular game being senate oriented, I would say any new rules be voted on and approved by a 2/3rds majority and put into effect at the start of the next game.

    The course of action I see here is that this thread needs to stay locked. A new Senate game thread can be started one rules are set up and agreed upon. The only way this can happen in a fair manner is if people from all "sides" are allowed to have input on the rules. Therefore I would strongly suggest something like we did for the Jedi Draft game. I will create a focus group forum with a thread for discussion on the future of the Senate game. I will then select people from the Senate thread to participate in the creation of the rules. All of these rules will be subject to approval by Stryphe and myself. Once finalized, these rules will be put into effect at the start of the new Senate thread.

    A few decisions I would like to just make flat out... The Senate game thread will go for a duration of four months. During those four months there will be four chancellors, one per month. At the end of the four month period, the thread will be locked, discussion can happen on any possible adjustment of the rules and a new version of the game can open. Like the draft there will be a two week break after the conclusion of the previous thread before a new one starts. Experience has shown Stryphe and myself that a break helps keep people from getting too wrapped up in the game. Everyone needs a rest from time to time.

    So I will setup the focus group forum shortly and PM all the users who will be participating. If you are quite sure you would like to be a part of these talks, which will be supervised by the SWC mods, then PM me and I will consider it.

    I hope this solution works for everyone and results in a better organized game that can be both fun and interesting. I see a lot of potential for learning cool things here and would hate to see it wasted.

    Well I am concerned because the focus group is not being very active in discussing the future of the Senate. Those of you who are members of the focus group need to either speak up in discussions or opt out so I can replace you with someone else who is interested in discussing the Senate. I would hate to see this game fall completely by the wayside.
