SPECIFIC RULES FOR SURVIVORS / MANAGEMENT OF SURVIVORS:1) Themes
Of course, we are on a political forum
, in an "election and history games
, so survivors allowed here deal with elections, politics, history (political, military, social, economic, religious,...), geography, economics, sociological matters.
These will be called "on-topic
" survivors - dealing with every other subject you can imagine - are allowed on a limited basis, i.e. provided there is a maximum of 5 of them active at any given time
What is more, a forumer isn't allowed to manage more than 2 off-topic survivors at any given time
(but can manage on-topic survivors at the same time).
2) Waiting lists and options
There is another stickied topic in which you can take out an option
on an idea of survivor, so that other forumers don't "steal" the idea (
).Options are valid for 2 months
: during these 2 months, only the forumer who has taken out the option is authorized to manage the corresponding survivor.
If not used, the option can be renewed only after 1 more month.
What is more, for off-topic
survivors, there is a waiting list
, where you must put down your idea
of off-topic survivor.
Only the first 5 of the list can be run at the same time and one forumer can't manage more than 2 off-topics survivor at any given time.
If the idea of a survivor is stolen, it will be deleted.
If an off-topic survivor is started too early, I'll lock it.
3) Past survivors
I've also made a list of survivors already organized.
The rule I want you to abide by is that a survivor shall not be organized on the same subject for one year
after the end of the preceding one.
I'll lock the topic until the organizer explains me what he thinks and then unlock it or remove it.
A survivor that includes another one (Latin America presidents Survivor includes, at least partly, Argentine's presidents survivor) will not be considered as the same
4) InactivityA survivor who is inactive for 3 weeks will be considered as available
for any other forumer to resume it or even to restart it.
I'll be able to lock it or to allow another forumer to resume or restart it.
By "inactive for 3 weeks", you should understand that the latest round has been opened for more than 3 weeks.
A survivor managed by a banned poster will be locked ASAP, as it is immediately inactive, and will be available immediately for any other forumer who wants to resume it or to restart it.
A list of thus available survivors
has been made in the other stickied topic.
5) Management of survivors
- Each survivor must take up as few topics or threads as possible
It is forbidden to make one topic for each round: I'll merge them and, if the problem is repeated, I'll lock or remove the topics.
But, of course, you can organize your survivor with a few groups and a topic dealing with organization and results.
- Before starting a survivor
, please take a look at how many are already open
and please take a look at the lists in the other stickied topic
, in order not to create an artificial list of names or a list of names too close to another one
To be interesting and useful, survivors must lead us to read, to learn, to search about names whom we don't know enough or at all.
So, we need to have a fair amount of simultaneously active survivors
, not an excessive amount of them.
- Please update
your survivors periodically
, but try not to do it more than once per 24 hours, so that every inhabitant of planet Earth is able to vote
- If you want to drop a survivor
, let me know it in an explicit
way, so that I can lock the topic, give the survivor to another forumer or make the subject available for another forumer to restart it.
I am entitled to lock any survivor that doesn't fit the rules or even to remove it.
We need to keep as many active survivors as we can on the main page. So, the threads that do not abide by the rules can be deleted quickly.If you want to complain
, please first use PMs and/or the other stickied topic on "debates, complaints,...", which has been created for this very purpose.
Enjoy the survivors !
