There is going to be a problem if you put all the major powers in the same group, but another problem if they are in different groups

To Nightowl & Brimstone:
Will the next SG make everyone re-choose the countries they wish to represent (as it happened when MUN II) started? The MUN has 60 countries under representation, but at the most 25 are active. What do you intend to do about this?

Aiman I don't remember what you carrot looked like?

Anyways I think a reshuffle will cause just more unrest. It seems like a good idea to give the most active members more powerful countries but remember the madness at the begining of MUN II?

I can appreciate where the Malaysian rep is coming from.. but surely reshuffling everyone would be extremely disruptive?

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.
Members of the SC post very infrequently due to the fact that almost nothing from the GA passes to the SC for voting. Most activity in the GA, unfortunately, is composed of condemnations and the sending of condolences. I believe that one of the next SG's aim must be ensure that this is not the case.

I'm not asking them to reshuffle. I'm asking them what they intend to do about the lack of activity by represented countries?

The way forward (Or at least Brazil thinks) in this MUN is to having proper debates and motions past from the resolutions that the US rep has examples of.

I meant 5 posts a week in the GA, but yeah what you said at the end is right

Well yeah, you do have a point. We don't have many healthy debates, and this should change.

Either that or make them represent highly unsignificant countries.

It's quite an irony. The current US rep JonathanH previously represented Micronesia. Heh.

You could make the minimum number of posts a month a function of a country's population.

The UK might not have a big population but it is a important country though

I agree - what if the president of a small country is murdered - the number of posts by such a rep would increase dramatically.

It all depends if the country has a lot of news that needs debating and discussing, not on the population size.
