Draft for the Second Amendment of the Constitution

Post  Anamys on Tue Apr 12, 2011 7:45 pm

People of Nasam,

It is with great consideration that I have drafted this proposed amendment so as to better the Republic of Nasam in every way possible. I post my working draft here for it to be reviewed and openly critiqued before it is subject to vote so that it may be as ideal as possible for the interests of our Republic. If you have any concerns or recommendations for this draft, please state your reason why it should be changed or added to me and I will consider them, as this is a tentative draft. Any vocalization of support is not unwelcome. I propose the following draft for ratification and intend to put it to vote at the next senate meeting, so I would especially like for fellow senators to consider it and discuss anything you feel should be changed or was not at all addressed. If you completely oppose a revision of the current system, best wishes.

Under oath,
~Senator Anamys Dyellus



Proposed Second Amendment to the Consitution of the Republic of Nasam

The following amendment is to address concerns with the recruitment and retention of citizens:
Recruitment
((All recruits must be either roleplayers or people with interest in roleplaying such to agree that they will act upon it. In order to be eligible to apply for citizenship within the Republic, you must be at least in your 40th season (death knights are required to be in their 65th season). Only officers (rank 5 and above) of the Republic may interview and grant citizenship to applicants.
When interviewing a character, the officer must use discretion in determining the quality of the interviewee by investigating the following criteria:

  1. What is the applicants background, or can they tell you something about themselves?
  2. Why does this person want to become a citizen in the Republic of Nasam?
  3. Follow up questions.

These criteria should give a good grasp of the character's identity as a roleplayer and generally introduce their persona to the Republic on some degree. If the character is still working on their identity as a roleplayer, take this time to encourage them to practice a role, even if it is not their “official” role. The interviewer should also be willing to answer any questions, either in character or out of character, that the applicant may have. The interviewer should also make sure that the applicant knows the difference between in character and out of character, as well as how this is observed with guild chat. The applicant must have an in character name, especially if their ingame name fails to observe server standards.
Alternate characters of citizens within the Republic must be interviewed unless their veteran character is an officer, however, the level of any alternate characters may be ignored when applying for citizenship.
If there is any character that wants to apply for citizenship that is neither an alternate character nor of a high enough season to join the Republic, an officer may vouch for the character, allowing that person the privilege of being interviewed. Whomever vouches for an applicant may not interview the character themselves, another officer must provide the interview. Whomever vouches for an applicant is responsible for the applicant's smooth integration into the Republic of Nasam.
It is the collective responsibility of everybody in the Republic of Nasam to ensure that new citizens have a smooth and satisfying integration into the Republic of Nasam, as well as the roleplaying aspect of the server.))

Retention
((Any characters rank 4 or below that have been inactive for 1 month will be removed from the Republic. Characters with a rank 5 automatically have an extended leave of 3 months. The only way to bypass this is to have the public guild note altered that gives reason for extended absence. Anybody leaving for an extended period is responsible for notifying a superior officer to make this adjustment. Alternate characters of veteran members are no exception, it is their responsibility to maintain any characters represented in the Republic to the point where they are productive. Any characters that have been expelled from the guild due to a period of inactivity and wish to join the Republic again may have their citizenship renewed at the discretion of an officer. Note should be taken that inactivity was indeed the exclusive reason the person in question was expelled. The person seeking renewal of citizenship must be able to explain their absence both in character and out of character.
District leaders, senators, the general, and the Commander-in-Chief are special cases and should be handled and addressed by the Commander-in-Chief or the collective senate in any way they see fit.))

(( After digging through the forums I came across this movement from a senate meeting on 20 February, 2011:

http://therepublicofnasam.forum-motion.net/t88-senate-meeting-of-20-february-2011

(( In regards to Recruitment, people who are inviting new members should make sure than the new member's name is an undeniable RP name. Non-RP names are NOT to be invited into the Guild; as an RP guild we are looking for quality NOT quanity. For those people with non-RP names currently in the Guild, you must contact Syana with an explaination of your non-RP name. If Syana finds that your explaination is acceptable, you will be placed on a safe-list so long as you have an addon like Total RP2 or MRP that allows you to change your name. If not, you may be reported so that you can change your name for free, requested to change your name using the paid service, or removed from the guild. ))

As this is a ruling of the senate, I intend to elaborate on recruitment and non-RP names before the amendment is passed in a manner consistent with this senatorial act. Quality, not quantity.))

This is the second draft of Senator Anamys Dyellus' proposed amendment to the Constitution, in which additional concerns regarding nomenclature are addressed in greater detail:

Proposed Second Amendment to the Constitution of the Republic of Nasam
The following amendment is to address concerns with the recruitment and retention of citizens:
Recruitment
((All recruits must be either roleplayers or people with interest in roleplaying such to agree that they will act upon it. In order to be eligible to apply for citizenship within the Republic, you must be at least in your 40th season (death knights are required to be in their 65th season). Only officers (rank 5 and above) of the Republic may interview and grant citizenship to applicants.
When interviewing a character, the officer must use discretion in determining the quality of the interviewee by investigating the following criteria:

  1. What is the applicants background, or can they tell you something about themselves?
  2. Why does this person want to become a citizen in the Republic of Nasam?
  3. Follow up questions.

These criteria should give a good grasp of the character's identity as a roleplayer and generally introduce their persona to the Republic on some degree. If the character is still working on their identity as a roleplayer, take this time to encourage them to practice a role, even if it is not their “official” role. The applicant must provide their roleplaying nomenclature that they go by for in character purposes. The applicant may go by an assumed name, if that is what they prefer. The officer is not required to address the applicant with any epithet the applicant may give them (especially if it is overly aggrandized). It is preferred that the applicant's name follow the Non-Medieval/Fantasy Names clause that applies to all roleplaying servers as addressed in Blizzard's support article, #20458 (http://us.blizzard.com/support/article.xml?locale=en_US&articleId=20458), but if the applicant offers an adequate explanation of why their name seemingly violates this, they may not be refused entry on this criterion alone. (It should be noted that there is no way one could know somebody's in character name unless they are the source of this information while in character. To assume that one's in character name is the one they are addressed as in the client would be an act of metagaming.) The applicant will be denied entry if their name is unequivocally and overtly offensive. The interviewer should also be willing to answer any questions, either in character or out of character, that the applicant may have. The interviewer should also make sure that the applicant knows the difference between in character and out of character, as well as how this is observed with guild chat.

Alternate characters of citizens within the Republic must be interviewed unless their veteran character is an officer, however, the level of any alternate characters may be ignored when applying for citizenship.

This is the third draft of Senator Anamys Dyellus' proposed amendment to the Constitution, in which officers interviewing applicants are asked to give a disclaimer that indicates Republic is a guild that does feature mature content:

Proposed Second Amendment to the Constitution of the Republic of Nasam
The following amendment is to address concerns with the recruitment and retention of citizens:

Recruitment
((All recruits must be either roleplayers or people with interest in roleplaying such to agree that they will act upon it. In order to be eligible to apply for citizenship within the Republic, you must be at least in your 40th season (death knights are required to be in their 65th season). Only officers (rank 5 and above) of the Republic may interview and grant citizenship to applicants.
When interviewing a character, the officer must use discretion in determining the quality of the interviewee by investigating the following criteria:

  1. What is the applicants background, or can they tell you something about themselves?
  2. Why does this person want to become a citizen in the Republic of Nasam?
  3. Follow up questions.


These criteria should give a good grasp of the character's identity as a roleplayer and generally introduce their persona to the Republic on some degree. If the character is still working on their identity as a roleplayer, take this time to encourage them to practice a role, even if it is not their “official” role.

The applicant will be denied entry if their name is unequivocally and overtly offensive. The interviewer should also be willing to answer any questions, either in character or out of character, that the applicant may have. The interviewer must notify the applicant that the Republic of Nasam is a guild intended for mature participants, which manifests into roleplayed themes as well as out of character chat; the Republic of Nasam does not observe censorship and is not intended to furnish "kid friendly" mindsets. Thorough descriptions of raunchy sexual experiences are generally discouraged. The interviewer should also make sure that the applicant knows the difference between in character and out of character, as well as how this is observed with guild chat.

Alternate characters of citizens within the Republic must be interviewed unless their veteran character is an officer, however, the level of any alternate characters may be ignored when applying for citizenship.

If there is any character that wants to apply for citizenship that is neither an alternate character nor of a high enough season to join the Republic, an officer may vouch for the character, allowing that person the privilege of being interviewed.
