a government faction has no point of being a thing if you won't be logging in. mayoral security isn't something you think it is, it's the police would be doing that, take a look at NYC's mayor, he has NYPD protecting him, not a private security sector. my governor character was always secondary but it was also hard to really make a public appearance at times. the admin event team should rarely even get involved, it should all be created by the players of the server, which is something that becomes an issue when you really get into government on this server. i visited the sasp on my governor character and there really isn't much to roleplay. you can always roleplay controlling their budget but without a good leader who really wants to roleplay a controlled budget by the government, what's even the point?Good idea.
In my opinion, a government faction's leadership (i.e. mayor, security detail, etc) does not need to log in everyday. Mayoral security detail can log in everyday for training, for patrolling purposes, etc, but the mayor doesn't have to as they only have to make an appearance rarely, that's why I suggest that the character remains secondary.
However, some campaigns ran by the mayor can be worth logging in everyday. For example let's say: an Earthquake eats up Red County. The mayor can make appearances and plans and pursue ways to solve that issue, and so on and so forth. There can be events ran by FD and SP, where the Mayor will make appearances as well. Think of all the roleplay this can give to a lot of factions.
The server's events team can create problems, and the Mayor can fix them. That's not all, obviously, but it is just one big example.
The Mayor can also visit government factions to check on them, see how they're holding up, etc.
In my opinion, it's a very good idea. It will be a semi-active character, the mayor still will log on a lot but just maybe not on a daily basis.
a faction like this existed late 2019 or whenever i led it and it really didnt do good. you somewhat have to depend on the community really.Well the pb is now rising and a FAC like this should exist , it would add good rp to the server.
When the govt happened, they had full access to having Silentium to encourage public events like rallying etc but that never occured. When it was ran, it was based on California and it was held to the standards there, making it too complex for most players to join.Yeah, it doesn't need to be an extremely large faction. Most you'd need is a city mayor, some government officials and maybe security for starters. Players such as myself with an interest in exploring politics on the server can't exactly bring anything forward as it feels as though there's restrictions.
But I can see why some may say no.
100% agree. After all most people play this game to have fun, despite realism being a big aspect of roleplay server, we have to also keep in mind that people have school and fulltime jobs so a total commitment to full-on realism may be intimidating for most players.When the govt happened, they had full access to having Silentium to encourage public events like rallying etc but that never occured.

If it was to be reattempted I think it'd need to be a dumbed down government, like you have a mayor, they have reps, you have an opposing party with the same and the mayor can make changes in guidance with the existing court system, ie proposing bills, law changes, etc.
^ this is how it works irl put into a simple version, with a few things like your local reps missing, but having an election for a local mayor could be good, but I'd like to see it fully player elected with minimal FM guidance on who gets power because with the previous government that ruined it as it was mostly friends in the government
Also, rallying in town halls, voting for mayor in town halls, the mayor every 3-6 months being revoted could be a cool concept to actually put politics into rcrp and to give more people a chance to learn politics through the game. If people see politics rp in the open eye, they'll get to understand it and might even run in the next mayoral election. They might take interest in the law side of politics and join the courts.
This is just me spitballing, but I hope some of it made sense, because I would like to see a mini government on rcrp.
Edit: to give more depth on what I think the mayor can do, is we hold a campaign phase where we have them suggest policies ie a bill on preventing hate crime, a bill to be able to charge on minor crimes that you couldn't previously or to adjust crimes to be charged less, a bill to decriminalise certain recreational drugs even though that's legal already it's something, government helping fund certain businesses ie a care center, community centers, homeless shelters
If a bill is signed off by all political parties reps it can then be presented to the chief justice, who can then modify the penal code, ensure that the law in enforced, notify LEOs. Or, something cool for rcrp, putting new policies and laws to public votes at town halls aka polling stations.
On top of what Zayats said about them having no place to hold a government, I think PC town hall could be modified and then you can also vote there, vote in Rockshore town hall, angel pine town hall etc.
this was such a meme at the time, not even worth elaborating how terrible the english most of them spoke. it was like they picked pakis fresh off the boat and gave a district for each to lead. i've had plenty of interactions with a good few of them as my journalist character, not only were they illiterate but their knowledge on politics was terribly scarce.Last time it was tried, aside from the hilarious way it was run, we had huge problems with the political parties aswell.
The Republicans which won the elections were primarily made out of people who were communists OOCly and the Democrats hired the mafia to kill the Republicans........in 2019 mind you.
