Abydos Regional Message Board

Zyris wrote:I have noted your bid in preparation for next months elections.

As a citizen, I do want to ask, is moving the citizens Guild out of Abydos the right idea? Since the Defense Guild moved out. Their RMB activity has plummeted, which means they are missing out on great opportunities to promote themselves. The guilds should be using the RMB to the fullest. Better to have an RMB that is overly active than one that falls stagnant. A military mission hasnt taken place in over a month, and their subsidiary region has also fallen dormant. May I suggest keeping the Guild here, and promoting it. That drives up your membership because here is where the action is. As for political parties, your guild and your political party is the same thing. As I had mentoned to someone earlier, Make your Guild unique and with it's own atmosphere and personality that your people can take pride in and have loyalty with. They shouldnt feel like generic office buildings.

Zyris is really strong in this situation. The more you can last in your own region's RMB, the larger and longer a guild can prevail.

Thank you for the question. I'm still on the fence on whether or not to make a seperate region, on one hand, like you said it will give us more chances to promote, on the other hand, especially at the very beginning it will take a lot of messaging back and forth that I would feel bad subjecting people who didn't sign up for it. But given the input I've gotten I'll will be editing my plan a bit. I really appreciate the input

Since I am Also running for Guild Vizier of another Guild, I will be happy to help support your campaign.

I really dislike the idea of moving people away from the region as it makes no sense. The people are here that you need to grow your guild/party. It's one thing to have a subregion for military operations, it's another thing just to move the people themselves out.

The Citizens guild is the default guild. Everybody joins it once they become citizens of Abydos. Moving them out kind of makes the entire application for citizenship fairly pointless. You answer something to be a citizen only to then jump somewhere else. Yeah...no that makes no sense.

Since the idea seem paticulary unfavorable, I have changed the plans, again thanks for the help

I ran because the Defense guild has gone stale, and we haven't done anything in weeks, even though we had plans to something at some point in the last few weeks.

I will say that I'm all for getting every guild in Abydos active and lively. Abydos has grown so fast so far and getting people into leading roles that can jumpstart the guilds is something I'm game to see happen.

That is the type of motivation we need around here. There are dozens, sometimes hundreds of opportunities to defend or raid every single update. At 50 chances to do something, 2 times a day, that means that the Defense Guild has missed over 3,000 opportunities this month! That is a ton of missed opportunities.

And it's not like the Defense Guild has to be huge... It is just as easy to team up with another defender or raider group and jump with them. Nothing wrong with that and usually they want the help... and that leads to new allies for the Diplomays Guild and plenty of news stories to write about in History Guild. All this is connected.

Run again, I'll support you. Bon Nese seems motivated to make things happen as well with Citizens, hopefully he can support you too. Let's transform some of these Guilds and have a fun time at it.

Release the Phoenix: Vote Zyris on June 5th.

As a first step toward a brighter future for the History Guild, I have decided to implement the Power to the People Address.

The goal of this Address is to give every citizen their own chance to show what they’re capable of, and to see what their current styles are for gameplay, roleplay, and various other things within Abydos. They can request help from guild members or do things their own way.

History will also be a major focus. This partly in due to me being the solo person running the newsletter and I would like to put the best interests of the nations who are Guild Members

Finally, we will still support foreign relations and will gladly help making dispatches to show other regions our events.

This is my first step into reform, and to help spread equality across the region.

Power to the People!

The Power to the People Address is a major step forward for the History Guild.

This address will serve as a means for the public to get the word out about topics of their choosing related to NationStates.

-Promoting Smaller Nations

Following the Address, guilds may choose to allow or deny this opportunity for their members to express themselves more freely, as this Address applies to the whole of Abydos Proper.

All Guild Members can write Dispatches about events that will be shown weekly on the History Guild, for freedom of speech. Most nations seem to take a step back once they join and I'd like to give them their own chance to shine by expressing themselves.

-Stepping Forward in History

The Guild Members of the History Guild will write and lead with more focus towards History, working on it as they please, to allow their skills as members to improve.

-Stepping Backward in News

I have decided to take an official break from the news regarding this Guild. More nations express the desire to work with History and I have chosen to put their best interests instead of the region's. This is mainly due to how much I'd like to explore this side of Abydos with them and get to talk with them more than trying to do something on my own.

-Regarding Foreign Association

The History Guild will gladly take any requests to make dispatches to outgoing regions we have embassies in. We'd like to help spread news from anyone (with higher moderation) to get other regions in on our adventures.

I neglected to mention, guilds get to have their own say whether or not they give their guild free speech, but it might interest the members enough who aren’t happy with being censored
