Proposal for a "Town hall meeting"

Post by Diderot Mirabeau »

As much as I'd like to post positive news on the progress of Neualtenburg I feel that the present circumstances warrant being addressed by the N'burg community at large.

I'd like to propose that the government leadership considers organising a sort of Town Hall Meeting with an agenda along the following lines:

1) Should we change our name now?
2) Should we change the city layout?
3) Should we terraform the sim?
4) Should we change/liberalise the architectural theme?
5) What do we need help for and who can do it?
6) Ideas

I'd recommend the meeting to be structured relatively firmly around this agenda with one individual arguing the merits and another the de-merits of each of the proposals, the possibility for a Q&A session after this and then finally a yes/no vote on the issue, which would be a guide for the RA to follow in taking the ultimate decision on each of these issues.

In my opinion the meeting could favourably be held on a Sunday because
of our challenges regarding time zones and preferably as soon as possible
because of everyone's desire to get this over with and maintain our
constructive momentum.

I'm fine with any hour in this interval although I fear it might be too short notice for us to be able to gather many residents - also considering the response in forum.

Would it be an idea to let you pick an hour Salzie and announce the event over our citizen mailing list as well as in the event forum? I promise to be there in order to present at least one viewpoint on the issues :-)

9 am Sunday is fine for me.

I we change the name perhaps it should be Democratic Republic of Neualtenburg to distinguish us from any undemocratic political sim projects. :)

I agree I'd like any new name to contain a reference to democracy if at all possible since undoubtedly that is our most defining characteristic especially when compared to "the competition".

However, "Neualtenburg" is becoming a liability to us simply because of the fact that people outside the government are in control of the LL forum carrying the name so I'd rather we changed it to something else if we decide to change it.

Just a list of ideas off the top of my head (feel free to prefix them with "Democratic Republic of"):
Neustadt
N'burg
Novaburg
Colonia Nova
Neuköln
Neucologne
Nova Colonia

I'll support Salzie's suggestion for "Freistadt", if we keep the "German look".
