    Propaganda FTW. I also think the parties have a responsibility to contact all their members who have been inactive in an attempt to get them active again.

    It really doesn't help that 4 party leaders have gone within the past 3 days though!
    I used to do that as lib dem leader, to nearly complete failure.

    I agree, although there is a fine balance. No one wants to be bombarded or hounded, in fact just updates will automatically get people re-interested (especially if carefully worded) without having to reprimand them.

    It can't be coincidence that so many have gone at the same time, there is clearly a problem of stagnation and, according to my brilliantly adapted Butler Model, we need to rejuvenate or face a period of decline.

    I just think a lot of new TSR members simply don't know about the HoC. There are plenty of people in the debating forums (eg Uk Politics). I think the speaker should put a big advert in the UK politics forum saying what all the parties do, who we are, etc.

    This is deffo true, even though I am part of the lib dems (:woo: ), this is a very recent thing and I still don't know anything much about the HoC, apart from that it exists, same with stuff such as UN etc.

    This has a lot of helpful info. Also just bombard your party sub-forum with lots of questions until you feel more confident. Take part in discussions, maybe get elected as an MP, it's easier than it may seem to get into the midst of it all.

    I've asked the mods if we can do some advertising, but another idea I've had floating around a while is to give us a fresh start. Remove all current HoC law and start again as it were. That way we won't run out of ideas so fast for at least a little while.
    Exactly what I was thinking my good sir.

    Thanks to all who have posted

    Aye, I suggested a restart bill back in movember in our sub forum, perhaps it's time I submitted it for debate. It's true the place is stagnating, we've now got so many bills that most bills newcomers want to discuss are old news and the majority of the house aren't bothered about.

    Exact wording of the bill back in november -

    1. All bills passed more than 3 tsr parliamentary sessions ago are repealed and archived in a wiki history of the tsr hoc.

    Well the links in hansard could all remain. I would suggest simply saying that from the date it passes all HoC law is repealed. The 3 sessions thing just complicates stuff. If we ever need a mass repeal again it could be done at some future point.

    Ok good, only today actually quite a topical bill was proposed in our sub-forum but as it had already been passed it couldn't be submitted. Many of these bills could really inspire some good debate.

    Yeah, when I was Labour Leader I remember sending a PM out to all members reminding them to vote in the General Election. Of over 120 members, I think about 30 read...

    Mm, I know about it, that bill in addition to stuff like legalisation of euthanasia and drugs, same sex marriages, changing of voting agea and tax policy etc; the stuff most people want to do is done.

    Aye, well the three session was so as to ensure the house didn't creep into this sort of stagnant state resulting in members leaving and such. But I guess if it got into a state then a restart could be simple enough to do again.

    I wouldn't want to make the previous bills too noticeable, as it'd result in people just copying past work, or losing motivation to write a bill seeing that it had all been done before. Perhaps a sort of hidden away section of wiki that only the really interested could find...

    Yer, I used to send out a mass PM every week, hopping to get more people into the hoc by telling them what was going on in the lib dem sub forum and having votes and things. It was a partial success in that it made us more active, but not as much as I would have hoped and that didn't transfer so well into the HoC, with them staying more in the sub forum.

    Aye I'll send it to Dayne tonight and get discussion started on it formally, now's as good a time as any.

    I could always create a new HoC wiki page for previous legislation. Just copy the existing wiki hansard over to a new page. If every session wiped out the bils from 3 sessions ago I think people would just copy those bills though.

    I agree about the need for a fine balance. I think each party should create a communication chief to keep members updated.

    Your going to have to inform me about this....Butler Model.......

    Well that would obviously be up to each individual party to decide. And the Butler Model is just something I had on my mind - it's a lifecycle model for tourism which I was using for my geography coursework. Dw :p:
