    Yea, it's very long. But the only part I didn't really like is the one with bribes. saying that bribes are "legal" and that;
    "answer to the best of their ability or offer such bribes as deemed necessary."

    Then any member can jump in and say basiclly "gimme 100grand or I won't vote you"
    and then everything will be a money question.

    Bribes shouldn't be legal, but what kind of punishment can you have? Oh, and if there should be some kind of punishment, it shouldn't be too rough. Maybe step down a rank or similar? That would actually be a good idea, especially if you got to have a certain rank to be able to participate in the elections.

    You have only yourselves to blame if you elect such a bribe-thirsty (to coin a phrase) monster :p

    Well, no, not for the first i suppose(Well, we are having a period now that we "vote" for everyone, but we don't care about the standard things to do:p)
    But then again, will anyone oppose to the order?

    Well if we set up the forums and have an election before we start recruiting anyone else we can use it as a trial run to see if there are any problems that need fixing.

    So I'm all for an election, but since only DU or I can run for Lord President and I want to be Prime Minister anyway the result is pretty obvious.

    The forums are setup: http://houseoflords.terra-arcanum.com/BB/

    And yes, I think it's in our best interests to go through a whole process of Elections just to see what's involved and if there's anything we think should be changed. We should also work out what Military and Diplomatic Honours everyone deserves too by doing a round of "Recognition of Prior Service" and recognise what people have done in the game up til now (wars, ambassadors etc..).

    You are aware that's how politics pretty much works anyway?

    The bribes was more a bit of fun too, rather than anything serious. You'd have to bribe a pretty large part of the alliance in order to get some of the 75% requirements. The idea is you'd put people in such positions as you can to gain the support of others.

    I have a whole section on "Quid Pro Quo" planned which will probably help outline some of that. I reckon by mid next week I should have the Charter completed and then we can review the thing as a whole.

    Well im not agaisnt bribes, I'm agaisnt the fact that bribes should be "officaly legal".
    it's better not to mention that you may pay bribes, but that dosn't mean it's illegal. Like TP said, there dosn't has to be a punishment for it aslong as it dosn't says "Or pay bribes...yada." I'm in a hurry so i stop here. hope my point has gotten throu.

    Let this be our policy: Condemn corruption and condone bribery that benefits the alliance!

    Not sure what I meant with that, but hey...

    About that it's one thing that I found funny.
    DU says that when someone is elected to President he is automaticly getting the title "Marquis" but then it says that only those rakned "marquis or higher" can be nominated to be a president, wich i find quite funny:p

    But still, none of us have any ranks as of now. Sure there were some suggested, but those were only suggestions.

    Yeah, that's in the event no-one of that rank accepts the role. EG: Every Marquis of the House leaves or says "Lord President? Fuck that.", the role is still able to be filled and so on that event, the person gets that rank.

    I was kind of hoping you wouldn't notice.

    But yes, Xz started playing a couple of hours before me and then started a thread on the old CC boards about Cyber Nations. That thread was where this whole thing actually started.
