Systems of separation benefit the operators. It was logical that Delegate Libertanny would combine RA, FA, WAA, and UTEP together - he is the king of pings, and to have the whole Executive in one place to only ping those of Executive importance was invaluable to him. Likewise for the WA-engaged it made sense that there was a special channel for WA Discussion with a closed ministry of trusted officials who could guide TEP’s way with informed decisions.
Not far in the past is the Delegacies of Zukchiva and myself - the former opened RA to all staffers, regardless of whether they were in RA or not, be they UTEP staff or FA staff, and myself who moved all things WA onto the main server. To our benefit, this achieved opening these channels and topics to new activity that, unlike our predecessor, was not in a condition we could best provide. I will try my damnest not to ping you if I know it is late for you, and keep them to a minimum - yet Serge’s highly successful style throws a good 5 around for good measure!
So onto the servers. I instead wish to frame this question this way - what does an organization look like that best operationalizes the Executive under Delegate Aivintis?
Mind of course that to create a new server requires everybody to move and everybody to know to quit using the former one, and to combine with the main server - while I perceive as crazy lucrative in terms of public activity for say a FA general and foreign ambassador reports chat as the highly successful Union of Democratic States, Free Nations Region, and Alstroemerian Commonwealths have, or for public input in RA planning where citizens can not only be aware of RA plans in progress, but also directly contribute just as I had opened the WA Discussion Ministry presently.
Mind of course also I am not saying to move all 50+ Executive roles and 50+ channels onto the main server. Two things stop you: common-sense security, sovereign operations, and the fact that the main server is big, already has a bunch of fun roles, and part of the reason we split in the first place is so the Executive has control over its own domain. If something can greatly benefit from public input, put in the main server where citizens can see it. Otherwise keep it separate and secure.
THUS, if there were a demand now for change and the decision up for me, I would commit the following:
- Main (Public access RA, FA reports from foreign ambassadors - bonus news for our mostly isolationist citizens!, WA Discussion, UTEP, all present material)
- Executive Leadership (Sensitive RA; internal FA, escalation, and FA direct link with the Executive)
- Roleplay (Included only because Shadow’s list did. Leave. Them. Be. Make no plans to move this server at all.)
- EPSA (Corrected your typo. Leave as is.)
Why? Because my style found that getting citizens directly involved where they can see it,
- brings people to our main server and gets them engaged with the community at large
- brings people who were originally there just to meme or chat or what have you down to the weird new channels and see what is all exactly we do
- to get your friend in you don’t need to send them a bunch of paperwork, just ping 'em and help right away
- want a citizen opinion? All of the Hussars are right there.
Is the Delerasi me? No. But that is how I would do it.
