Let's beat Max!

Postby Zemnaya Svoboda » Sun Apr 01, 2012 12:48 am

Thank you Max Barry!


So what's the plan?

Basically, everybody sends their shares to someone who has a lot of shares that they trust. Then, the top 25 people who are willing to participate get in a room and figure out who to have beat max. Then that one nation hopefully gets over 25 million shares and helps us the players seize control over the Father Knows Best State

Please do NOT spam people or regions! That does not help the cause!

Some top25 shareholders who have joined:
  1. Lyanna Stark
  2. Ballotonia
  3. Darkesia
  4. Riemstagrad
  5. Parhe
  6. Quoziced
  7. Charlotte Ryberg
  8. Panty Bear

We are meeting in #omg_inc on Esper.net

The Log of the Meeting (Warning, contains some heated language in moments; would probably fall under PG-13 in a film)

The meeting has adopted the following declaration:

The Shareholder Meeting as organized under the Organizational Memorandum for General Integration of the NationStates Corporation (OMG INC) resolves:

1. That The NationStates Community be our candidate for Interim CEO of the NationStates Corporation, with the mandate to implement our manifesto items that follow.
2. That the interim CEO adopt a system whereby a Committee of 15 nations is elected by Single Non-Transferrable Vote every month to serve as the board of the NationStates Corporation: Each World Assembly Nation will have one vote, and may vote for any nation. The 15 nations with the most votes will be elected. The Committee will have the power to set and alter rules and policies.
3. That the elected Board of the NationStates Corporation will itself elect a CEO to administer the operations of the NationStates Corporation, by simple majority vote. The CEO will have authority and responsibility necessary for the operation of necessary services and the enforcement of rules and policies.
4. That, should The NationStates Community attain 25 million shares, they will immediately hold an interim board election in #omg_inc on Esper.net electing 15 members by Single Transferrable Vote.


Organizational Memorandum for General Integration of the Nationstates Corporation

1. All nations which affirm intent to follow the bylaws of the OMG INC are members.
2. All members will submit their shares in trust to members who they trust to follow the rules of OMG INC. Members have the right to request the return of their shares, and receive them back at the first opportunity.
3. While Max Barry's record of trades is convenient, OMG INC suggests all members record their transfers, sent and received, in their own records as well.
4. The top 25 shareholders of Nationstates Corporation who are members of OMG INC will meet when the countdown strikes 6 hours in an IRC channel selected by the highest shareholder among them.
5. These members will then, consulting with the members who submitted them shares, select an interim CEO candidate for the Nationstates Corporation, a voting method for the selection of board members, and a voting method for the selection of a CEO to propose; in both such elections every player's vote must be equal.
6. The interim CEO candidate will take in trust all the shares of all OMG INC members.
7. Should the interim CEO candidate attain the CEO position they will organize the board election and the election of a non-interim CEO.


Edit: thread title, changed "member" to "person" in article 5.
Edit2: the edit note should say "player". Goodnight!
Edit3: Came to realize the legalese was not the most straightforward thing, added a "so what's the plan" section.
Edit4: Linked to 2 subscriptions by top25 shareholders, spoilered edit log
Edit5: Linked to 2 more subscriptions
Edit6: Linked to 1 more
Edit7: Linked to 1 more
Edit8: Linked to 1 more, reordered two which had changed places. Note: Intentionally leaving Ballotonia and Riemstagran honorary slots in the list, despite their having entrusted their shares to Lyanna Stark.
Edit9: Linked to IRC channel.
Edit10: Removed a subscriber who didn't appear to be serious.
Edit11: Added 2 subscribers-via-IRC, fixed 2 typos in the Memorandum (NIC vs INC in 2 places)
Edit12: added Declaration.
Edit13: Fixed a typo (Rydberg -> Ryberg)
Edit14: added a PLEASE DO NOT SPAM notice
Edit15: Thank you Max Barry!
Edit16: As it turns out, [hr] needs a closing tag o.o
Edit17: Linked to sanitized log.

Even if all the top 25 were together it wouldn't be enough. We need a lot more support, unfortunately. That would be a great step, though.

My thought is that as soon as we get one nation getting close, more and more people will start pouring in on it. Whether this will prove to be true or not, we shall see...(I hope!)

Is anyone actively trying to get the other members of the 25 to pool their shares?

Pledging isn't enough, comrade. Shares must be donated to Lyanna Stark ASAP, to boost morale and shift opinions in her favor.

It is a joke, but we must turn the joke on him. He thinks he'll laugh at our petty squabbling for power, but we must show him that we can and will cooperate.
