INTRODUCTION

Gather all ye Armorites!

Background

Today we begin our ultimate quest in service to the almighty Comunidad de Armor! We must suit up in our best Armatars and set out to fight the evil, monstrous beast known as Inactivity. Wield your posts and your threads, for they are the only weapons powerful enough to injure the seemingly invincible beast that rampages through our community.

Today, April 1st, 2013, is the very first day of the War of Falta de Actividad. It's the Armorites against Inactivity. We know the consequences if we are to lose, so we must begin the fight today! However, we must figure out how we're going to do it first!

Our Plan of Action

This war will require the services of all ye loyal Armorites; however, we're going to need backup. If you know someone who has free time and doesn't have to tend to their feudal lords or work in the Gondorian fields, tell them to join our plight!

We're absolutely going to need to cooperate if we're to defeat the evil Inactivity. Though, mere cooperation will only take us so far. We need to develop a clear cut plan to slay the putrid beast!

Sir Salvidian's Proposition

As with any full-scale war, we need a colorful mix of well trained men (and women, as this is an equal society). We need soldiers, bookkeepers, cooks, generals, and equipment operators. I propose we recruit people of all categories and divide them accordingly. After that, we begin our actual plan in dealing with our enemy.

Soldiers

Perhaps the backbone of our army, these men will carry out the actual fighting. They will post in order to directly fight. This rank is open to absolutely anyone and everyone and is a fairly easy field to work in. Being a soldier merely requires you to participate in the forums a bit more than usual. You will also be expected to occasionally report where and when you've posted, but, because this is supposed to be a simple rank, a simple report is all that is needed.

Bookkeepers

The bookkeepers will have a fairly sophisticated role. They will analyze where to attack and they will analyze how to attack. They will create the innovative threads that will be used as weapons. These are the inventors. They will remain in this thread, the Armorites' HQ, and will converse among themselves.

Cooks

The cooks will have a very laid-back role. It is only required that they keep spirits up o the Armorite side. They'll be the comedians, the musicians, and, ultimately, the entertainers. They are required to crack jokes on a day-to-day basis just to keep morale gong strong.

Equipment Operators

These men ensure that the threads and posts are working. If they aren't, they are to inform the bookkeepers and work alongside of them using their on-the-battlefield experience to help the bookkeepers develop better weapons.

Generals

The generals will carry out the most sophisticated role of all: they will ensure that everything runs smoothly. Their mission is to give input towards those who need a boost. They'll also control recruitment. They will be the leaders of the Armorites.

Recruitment

Recruitment will be easy: sign up by saying what role you want and check back to see if a general has approved.

In Summary

We'll be fighting Inactivity by building an army! Most of this will be based on Improvisation, and it'll be a fun (I hope) experience.

Get to it men! If you have a question, I'll answer it! HOORAH!

Ragh! The ravages of discrepancies in - yeah I'm done with that. I can only be cheery for so long.

@World Events thread stuff
Actually we would only have 1 thread for all the topics, not 1 thread each. For some reason my medieval talk had trouble getting that point across. Anyhow, I was thinking we could have a thread titled, "Daily World Events Thread" or something along those lines. Then, once a day, by some organizational system, we would have one of us post a new topic for the natives* to talk about. Obviously 1 thread per 1 topic would be way too much.

@pang
Me gusta mucho. Keep at it, dear boy! For the WEPR, I think you or me would be good. You're a bit more familiar in the area than anyone else participating, but I can adapt to anywhere if needed. We should take that idea of "You go here and you go here" and do something with it. I don't know what though.

For travel threads, I recommend a site called lonely planet, tis what I use for my school projects.


Yeah, a travel thread would be cool. "light_chaser's travel destination of the week" or something. It's unique.

Avast!

Isn't that for pirates?

Out of everyone here..we 2 are the only ones really familiar. The difference is..although I'm more active in the section (plus..I lurk all over it too)..you are a lot better with explaining threads with OP..and that is a community where a good OP and engaging OP is desired

Organization, of course!
Once the "army" gets to a reasonable size..I can split up members of each rank to different sections (of course, they can go to all sections, but have focus on designated section) based on where they'd best fit

Whichever you prefer. I can get it done even tonight (lol... "night&quot if everything's ship-shape and ready to go.

@World Events thread stuff


That sounds like a plan. Way easier to maintain then the original idea.

At least the generals are doing something in the right direction. No army can function without being well organized.

I'm fairly confident that I'm the only one on right now, but shall I post the World Events thread?

I don't see why not. Also, I think the WEPR would be the best place for such a thread, given that it's about world events.

I've never had this much trouble with writing an OP before. O.O

Nope..seems to be fine

One suggestion, though..stay away from like major events that could be made into a thread of their own..so we don't see a decrease in threads while one thread holds the activity

I have some ideas for the flash game section.

-Game of the Week- Where the OP select two games and users choose which is better.

-Guess the Flash game- OP gives description for a flash game and users has to guess it.

@vinster

I think for guess the flash game a mod would probably move it to forum games...

But thanks for your guys' opinions on my idea. I shall clarify...

- World Events Thread -
One person tries to find a minor (but not frivolous) world event to post in the thread. This one person will be either a general or a bookkeeper, unless Sal says otherwise. Then as a duty for this "war" the users (the subjects) shall have to discuss about it, or say their own thoughts. If Sal okays the cycle idea, I'll try and organize a one person a day schedule with backups just in case.

Okay. I'm done now.

TEEHEE.

It isn't too often that I find an absolutely golden thread idea, but you, good sir, have brought me two. We shall celebrate this none-too-often moment and eat cake. Lots of cake. In fact, we shall eat so much cake that we will have to roll away from the table. Then we will train with Treadmillasaurus Rex to lose that weight.

Well, the Popular Media forum has Name that Song so I think we'd be okay.

This one person will be either a general or a bookkeeper


I was thinking EO's, because that was kind of the entire point of having them. Unless any of the generals or bookkeepers want to do it instead. Besides, if we have a cycle system, we'll have more than one category of men probably.

unless Sal says otherwise.
If Sal okays the cycle idea

I am no overlord. We all have equivalent power here.

I'll try and organize a one person a day schedule with backups just in case.


Anytime you're willing.

Oh yeah... I forgot about that.

Okay... I just figured since you were the maker of this thread that you would like to have a say on things.

Whoops. I got them mixed up. I guess i'll put the generals and EOs in the cycle with any bookkeeper backing up when/if they can.

Anytime you're willing.


Now.

It almost looks like the thread is governing itself with the help of the WEPR regulars. I don't think we'd have much use for a cycle after all.

If you need me to I can make the "Game of the Week" one. The other, I'm too lazy to.
