So here is my re-attempt in writing the list of ideas I had previously written but got deleted because of me accidentally closing Firefox. I hope I do not forget any ideas that I had and that I explain the ideas clearly so that you all understand. A lot of these ideas came from a conversation I had with Phantom.
The 5 NGDD Departments:
Internal Affairs Department
Now you'll notice there's no "Portal Department". I never understood why the Portal Department was not a sub-department in the Flash Department. Well now all the departments protect their respective portal.
Art - Art portal
Audio - Audio Portal
Flash - Flash Portal
NO PORTAL DEPARTMENT.
The point system in the NGDD will be like the XR System. There will be no "NGDD Points". Each department has it's own set of points.
Art - Art Points
Audio - Audio Points
Flash - Flash Points
BBS - BBS Points
Internal Affairs (?) - I don't know if the IA (Internal Affairs) Dept. will have it's own set of points. You guys should discuss this.
Points will be handed out like in the XR System. By doing certain things you earn points. Though, you can only points for the department you're in. You can't earn BBS Points if you're in the Art Department. Or you can't earn Audio Points if you're in the Flash Department.
The NGDD will have missions again. Though, these missions will be much much different from what they were in the XR System. Missions can only be ran by Department leaders. Department leaders are encouraged to run missions and most likely will have to run a minimum of 2 missions a month. Missions have to do with something based on the Department name. So if you're the Flash Department Leader. You have to have missions based on Flash. And your whole department must participate unless they have a valid excuse validated by the Internal Affairs Department. I hope you guys understand this. This part was something i had much trouble writing the time before i closed Firefox accidentally.
Missions will be like:
Review these 10 flash movies/games based on the following criteria: blah blah blah, I haven't really came up with the criteria yet.
If you have already written a review for one of these Flash Movies/Games do not attempt to submit it as one of your 10 reviews. Yeah, you'll have to submit the 10 reviews to your Department Leader or Head Secretary. Meaning, someone isn't going to go through your flash reviews to see if you wrote them or not. YOU MUST PROVIDE THE DIRECT LINKS TO YOUR REVIEWS IN A PM TO YOUR DEPARTMENT LEADER! So back to what i was saying about if you had already written a review for one of those 10 flash movies/games. You'll have to write a review for one (or more depending on how many flash movies/games you already had a review written for) of these 10 flash movies/games.
If you do not write 10 reviews then you do not gain or lose anything but it is highly recommended that you don't drop out.
Anyways... i hope you guys understood this part about Missions. It was hard to explain it when i was first writing it and it was certainly not easy writing it a 2nd time.
Next Stop: NGDD Ranks
The NGDD will have ranks. Department Ranks. Each Department will have it's own set of ranks. Each Department will have a Leader and a Secretary. *Please exclude the Internal Affairs Department from this conversation*
Not all the ranks have been decided for the Departments yet.
The secretary's role will be calculating the points for members. We know 1 secretary can't just be the one calculating all the points for the people in the Department. So we'll have sub-secretary's. Sub-secretary's will be given members to calculate their points.
Secretary1 - User1, User2, User3 and User4
Secretary2 - User5, User6, User7 and User 8
Secretary3 - User 9, User10, User11 and User12
Secretary4 - User 13, User14, User15 and User16.
The NGDD will have weekly roster updates. I think monthly updates is just too long and it will make it harder to calculate the points. The secretary's will have to give all the points they have calculated for each member to the Department Leader, she/he will then make sure all those point calculations seem fine and will send it off to the Internal Affairs Department which will make the NGDD Weekly Roster Updates.
I'm not sure if the NGDD will have contests. The contests will most likely have to be Department based as well. And if there are contests, I don't know what prizes will be given. Maybe just points?
Remember, the LD System is something which i can use to build the new official system for the NGDD known to be called the New-NGDD System. So things can be changed.
Now a quick summary on the 5 Departments:
Art: The Art Department will be based on submitting Art in the Art portal, protecting the Art Portal from spammers, scouting people THAT ARE worthy of being scouted. And posting in the Art Forum.
Audio: The Audio Department will be based on submitting Audio in the Audio Portal, protecting the Audio Portal from spammers, posting in the Audio Forum and reviewing audio submissions (this includes giving constructive criticism).
Flash: The Flash Department will be based on submitting Flash in the Flash Portal, whistling abusive reviews/flash movies & games, protecting the Flash Portal from spammers, posting in the Flash Forum and reviewing Flash submissions (this includes giving constructive criticism).
BBS: The BBS Department is based on being a role-model for the other BBS posters, posting good posts, alerting the mods of spam, no backseat modding, creating threads and being an active BBS poster.
Internal Affairs: The Internal Affairs Department is the NGDD Administration. All big decisions will be handled right here. To join the IA Dept. you must be a member of the NGDD for at least 2 months. BEING PART OF THIS DEPARTMENT DOES NOT MEAN YOU'RE A NGDD ADMIN! It just means you're involved with all the big decisions being made.
The NGDD will have a forum. Here, we can discuss private issues. Things we don't want the public to see or know.
The forum will not replace the DoDBot account.
The NGDD forum will look like a PHPBB3 forum.
On the NGDD Forum, we will have polls when a user wishes to join. Now only the department that the user wishes to join will be able to vote in that poll. Everyone else in the NGDD can only give their OPINION on the user. Their will be a probation system in the NGDD.
I pretty much hope I haven't not forgotten any ideas. I think these were all the ideas i talked about the 1st time i wrote this. There are still many more ideas but I have yet to develop those ideas. I hope you guys understood all these ideas too. They weren't easy to write a 2nd time. I feel as if this time my post is a bit more sloppy than when i wrote it the first time. Oh well... i only have like 40 characters remaining...
So thanks for reading and i hope to get a lot of feedback!
