    If everyone puts any questions and statements etc. in lots of small posts then we could probably do it.

    Malta is interested in that too as we never fully understood it in the past.

    It would have been nice, I admit, but with representatives coming and going like I don't know what, it proved impossible (for me, at least) to keep track of who was in what house, and to keep a relatively even balance of big/small powers in each one.

    Yeah, It's a good idea but It would be quite hard to keep track of.

    I agree, I like posting when ever I have time and not being obliged to post in certain weeks.

    The idea of the house system came about in order to make MUN members post regularly. Perhaps a better way would be to have a minimum amount of activity for MUN members, e.g. at least 5 posts a week for members of the security council, and 5 post a month for people only in the General Assembly.

    Okay, I'm not in the SC but I post pretty much every day, if not, every few days.

    Why the tighter rules for those in the SC, it'll just end up the SC are the only ones really posting

    The numbers are only minimum numbers, so members can post as much as they want.

    I suggested more commitment for the members of the SC because these tend to be the bigger more important countries.

    Some people may want to join the MUN and only post every now and again. This would work fine if they represent a small nation that does not do much on the world stage. Larger nations like the US and China for example would require more active reps, so you could make a rule that says people representing "big important" countries must post more often. These "big important" nations tend to be in the SC, hence the suggestion for having SC members post more often.

    I wouldn't have thought those not in the SC couldn't post more.
    Sorry, I got lost in the stream of negatives there.

    Agent Smith has edited my post to say the above. I can remember what was in this post originally now, nor what I'd posted and quoted...very confusing...

    AGENT SMITH SAYS: HELP! I edited a post thinking it was mine! Damn these mod powers!

    I didn't like the houses idea at first, but I warmed to it, and I'm interested what the new SG is going to do with it

    I dunno about the houses idea. Sometimes you get issues where you need two or three specific countries to participate (i.e. US/Mexico on immigration) and if they're in different groups they may well not be bothering with participating at the same time. And if you're going to distribute the 'powers' across groups what's that going to do for SC debates?
