PAEDAGOG [Closed for rebranding]

Postby Paedagog » Sat Aug 15, 2015 5:13 pm

We have rebranded! Please visit: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=405207.

We'll keep this existing thread open a bit longer, but we're allowing Gog to be absorbed by our overarching group, Madhouse. Existing Gog members are welcome to transfer over.








Image






Interested in a group that can help you strengthen your writing skills, your ability to run a roleplay, or skills pertaining to character and plot development?
Seeking a family you can count on to help you set up and maintain roleplays?
Looking for a group that covers both P2TM and the Diplomacy Forums?
Just tired of not having a group of like-minded, driven writers?
Look no further, Pædagog is here!


Pædagog is a roleplay group made up of veteran and beginner roleplayers alike who seek to collaborate on developing unique and interesting worlds to explore through the realm of play-by-post roleplaying. To this end, we support players with constructing their own languages, building their own nations and worlds, designing engaging roleplays based on unique and fun concepts, and in strengthening their abilities as roleplayers, game masters, dungeon masters, and - above all - as writers.

Pædagog is not a casual roleplay group. Though we do like to maintain an atmosphere of family rather than a formal hierarchy, we take our roleplaying seriously and expect members to adhere to a certain level of quality as well as dedication when it comes to posting, setting up roleplays, and interacting with others. In short: be mature, be ready to learn, and be reliable. In return, we promise to be open, to be helpful, and to always support you in all your worthy, RP-related endeavors.

Come join a group that treats roleplaying as a proper hobby and pays it respect with quality and grace. Submit your application for Pædagog today and prepare to learn and teach your fellow nations what it means to be a roleplayer!



Image
  • Offsite Forum
    Pædagog features an offsite forum where players can coordinate both nation and non-nation roleplays, find links on worldbuilding tips, and receive help with ideas for roleplays, locales, and characters. Being a member of Pædagog on Nationstates is required to be accepted onto the offsite forum.
  • IRC Room
    Pædagog has a registered chatroom on the EsperNet IRC server, #NSP. Come join us if you want immediate help, want to coordinate plots for an existing roleplay, want to plan for a new roleplay, or just want to hang out and have fun. The chatroom has almost no downtime beyond EsperNet maintenance and usually has at least player or two in the afternoons and evenings, western and eastern US time. Use of #NSP is restricted to Pædagog members.
  • Region
    The Pædagog Region is open to all members of the Pædagog Role Play Group. You will be given the password once you are approved.
  • Inter-Group Collaboration
    Pædagog is not an insular group; we welcome collaboration with other groups. Pædagog members don’t have to give up their ties to other groups to join. Members of Pædagog will be able to represent the group if we are asked by others to assist on their offsite forums and will, in turn, be able to avail of assistance we are provided on our own forum by other groups, however this group does not replace established agencies such as the NS Mentor program, or the Cafe.
  • Events and Activities
    Pædagog may occasionally participate in NS-related events or activities. These include:
    • The NS World's Fair, either as guest speakers or with a booth;
    • Guest speakers on another RP group's threads, IRCs, or OSF;
    • Non-Participatory mentors for Members running affiliated games (in other words, behind the scenes assistance;
    • Supporting teachers running classroom regions;
    • Running organization-sponsored RP games in the Diplomacy or P2TM forums, including nation-based political organizations in the NationStates subforum.

  • Please avoid fighting honey badgers in the quadrangle.
  • Please remember to feed said quadrangle once a week.
  • Respect the Coconuts. (RESPECT THEM!)
  • Be good to each other.
  • Follow NS rules: Don't be a dick, keep it PG-13, stay on topic, off-topic chat to a minimum or done on IRC.
  • If you would like help, don't spam. Drop your request in here. We don’t expect to be a rapid fire thread, so it may take a day or two for a member to get back to you.

As a private organization, it does not recognize "free speech".


    5. Membership
      Membership in Pædagog is a privilege, not a right.

      1. Recruitment: New Membership Recruitment is carried out several ways:
        1. Pædagog P2TM Thread;
        2. Regional Thread found in Gameplay (players must still apply on the P2TM Thread to join);
        3. Invite by other Members.
      2. Joining: Any interested persons thirteen (13) years of age or older may officially join regardless of skill level provided they meet the following criteria:
        1. Nominee has writing proficiency and comprehension of the English language;
        2. Nominee does not have a poor track record in Moderation (unsportsmanlike conduct, harassing, griefing etc);
        3. Nominee agrees to abide by Pædagog's basic rules;
        4. Nominee completes the introductory period requirements.
      3. Suspension: Membership can be suspended or revoked by the Founders for:
        1. Unsportsmanlike behavior;
        2. Theft of intellectual property belonging to other members;
        3. Failure to follow guidelines; group disruption.
      4. CTE Nations: Nations that cease to exist (CTE) may be required to apply again.
      5. DOS Nations: Delete-on-Site nations will be dropped from the membership roster and removed from the OSF.
      6. Tiers: There are three membership tiers.
        1. Founder. Members that either founded the original Pædagog or else helped refound this current incarnation;
        2. Echelon: these people assist the Founders in running the organization; they're happy flunkies that have extra time to dedicate towards mailing lists, moderating discussions/debates/OSF forums or the IRC, neatening forum code, etc. Many serve as Regional Officers;
        3. Member: general membership. General membership includes both experienced RPers and beginners alike.
      7. Application Process: In an effort to weed out "sig collectors" or those who sign up for no reason other than boredom, the application process is as follows:
        1. Interested persons will submit a formal application on the official Pædagog thread;
        2. There will be a brief introductory period. Pædagog members will ask questions raging from serious to silly in an effort to get to know the applicant better. The speed in which you are approved depends entirely upon the promptness of your replies and the level of your activity in Pædagog over the following few days;
        3. Founders and Officers will review your application and activity and then make a determination. Official Membership acceptance is posted by the Pædagog Admin account.


    6. Region
      The Pædagog Region is open to all members of the Pædagog Role Play Group.
      1. Regional Membership defined: Regional Membership pertains to the player, not nation. Players are encouraged to move a nation to the Region. However, players that are active in their home regions are encouraged to stay there.
      2. The Region will utilize a password to block non-Members from joining. The password shall be changed after a Member joins; Members have 24 hours to join the region before the password is automatically changed. Members shall declare ahead of time which nation/s they are bringing to the Region.
      3. Region participation is not a requirement for this group unless the Member serves as an Officer.
      4. Parking Surplus Nations: Players are encouraged to park their various Pædagog-active nations in the region. Example: if you have a PT puppet that you are using for Pædagog nation RP, you may park it there. The Pædagog Region is not a parking spot for all your puppets, however. Caveat: the occasional Zombie Invasions are the only time Pædagog will allow mass puppet occupation.
      5. Governance: The Region will be governed by Regional Officers. These are the Role Play Group's Founders and Echelon. Members are encouraged to become Echelon.
      6. The Pædagog administrative account is accessible by all Founders.
      7. World Assembly: The Pædagog Region does not participate in World Assembly gameplay at this time. The Region reserves the right to participate down the line. Currently, we do not endorse each other nor do we permit anyone to become Regional WAD.


    7. Events and Activities
      Pædagog may occasionally participate in NS-related events or activities. These include:
      1. The NS World's Fair, either as guest speakers or with a booth;
      2. Guest speakers on another RP group's threads, IRCs, or OSF;
      3. Non-Participatory mentors for Members running affiliated games (in other words, behind the scenes assistance;
      4. Supporting teachers running classroom regions;
      5. Running organization-sponsored RP games in the Diplomacy or P2TM forums, including nation-based political organizations in the NationStates subforum.


    8. R/D (Gameplay)
      1. Pædagog does NOT participate in R/D gameplay. Though we have Members that do participate in it, we do NOT allow the Region to serve as a jump point.
      2. Players that raid or defend are welcome to join our organization provided they join because they are roleplayers.
      3. We support gameplay's right to participate in R/D; We recognize that gameplay is one facet of NationStates.
      4. We ask that raiders please respect our efforts to remain non-participatory in R/D.
      5. In the event of a raid, all Region Members are to go silent. Founders and Officers will declare the RMB as IC-Only. Only Founders and Officers may engage raiders using the RMB during this period. Invaders may voluntarily leave; we will not kick you from the region. Why? Invaders automatically become subject to RMB and Regional roleplay and, as characters participating in a Region RP, We the GMs shall paint you in whatever light we so choose. We retain the right to sully your organization further by posting portions of RMB IC ROLEPLAY DURING OCCUPATION in our Gameplay thread for educational (critique) purposes.



    9. OSF and IRC, and Their Guidelines
      1. The OSF shall be located on ProBoards. It shall be maintained by Vorpal Fennec and moderated by chosen Echelon-level members. Intellectual property contained on the OSF shall not be republished elsewhere without the author's explicit permission. Material posted to the OSF without the author's explicit permission will be removed at author's request. The current OSF address is http://paedagog.boards.net/.
      2. IRC. The IRC is owned by Swith (set as administrative OP). Members will not spam the IRC with excessive off-topic posts. Off-topic definition: posts that pertain only to the poster (babble, links to emotive pictures, meme spam). Posters are encouraged to see if there is a set topic upon arrival. Posters are also asked to gauge the conversation before throwing in a new, unrelated topic. The IRC is on esper.net: #NSP


    10. Terms of Service
      All members must abide by the NationStates OSRS when using NS. All members must abide by the ProBoards TOS when using the OSF, to include the host's TOS found here, in addition to the group-specific rules found here. All members must abide by EsperNet guidelines when using the IRC.

Greetings to all. Welcome.

Nice coding, team. Now what was this about a mailbag?

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination.

The mailbag would be a weekly or bi-weekly, depending on how many questions we get, thing whereby we post answers to questions on things like tactics, posting style, plot creation, and world-building. Essentially it's a way for us to share answers to questions people have asked without the individual feeling embarrassed because his/her name will not be tied to the questions. I'm thinking this ought to be done for big questions - stuff that takes more than a minute or so to answer and that isn't specific to any single RP but is more a comment on a specific style, genre, or on roleplaying in general.

Thanks Cer. It was a fun endeavor.

I think either weekly or biweekly would be nice, Agy. It depends on people's schedules, but weekly would be nice. Should questions be asked through TG, and if so, who fields them? We can create a list to mailbag responses under the Misc tag.

Also, welcome, readers and those interested in joining.

That would work well, Tilt.

We're looking to cover a variety of topics, from tactics to worldbuilding, and beyond. The premise is perfect in that people will feel more open to asking if they don't feel as if they're put on the spot. Nobody likes to look like a noob. Then again, I'll probably submit a few questions myself, if only because I'm unfamiliar with some RP aspects and would like to learn more. It would be a good way to get the ball rolling. I can fashion a spot to host them under the staff category on the OSF.

Sounds good. If the questions are few, we can always pull questions we regularly get from members that might not be too long just so we can get them cleared up and people won't have to keep asking them.

Pædagog is a Danish word meaning "teacher" or "educator".

Welcome, Storm. The OP contains a link to the forum, where you can find more information about us, what's upcoming, and about our IRC. It's fairly quiet around here for now, mostly because half of us are at dinner or else tied up with things. I'll add your name to the roster shortly. :)

We have a big bowl of it over in the IRC. Freshly popped, too!

Slo and Tilt, both lists are good. I can't decide! But, heads up to Min and Cer, Slo's volunteered to combine them into a good linkfarm.
